Quote of the Day

"One bleeding-heart type asked me in a recent interview if I did not agree that 'violence begets violence.' I told him that it is my earnest endeavor to see that it does. I would like very much to ensure — and in some cases I have — that any man who offers violence to his fellow citizen begets a whole lot more in return than he can enjoy."

Selling your browser history. When will your number come up?



I guess it doesn't matter. Every time I buy groceries, I have to scan my little card and it sends a list of everything I buy to my file in their data base.

Every  time I try to find a product on line, or look at a page that sells things, Google captures that and uses it to sell adds that pop up on my internet browser.

So I guess being able to buy a list of every web page I look at is not that traumatic.  Unless, of course, we get a Democratic totalitarian regime in control again, and that could be very unpleasant for people like me.








Things continue to get more interesting with the Islamic invasion.  The courts, filled with Obama appointees, have been able to throw a wooden shoe into the works with attempts to stop terrorists from filtering into the county.  MSM continues to assure everyone that Moslems are all nice people and terrorists are just an aberration, a minuscule microcosm of Islam.  But the attacks keep happening, and the dead victims and their families are not consoled by these laudatory paeans to Islam.




This old guy must live in a hidden bunker somewhere, as he lives in England where saying what he says can get you thrown in jail. If not murdered by Moslems, who have already overrun English cities in some parts of the country.  What he says makes sense.  I'd send him a pistol if he could own one,but of course, he can't.

He's sure right about the increase in random Islamic attacks, and the same is true here. How about the poor fellow from Utah who took his wife on a trip to England they'd dreamed of for years. The last terrorist attack there killed him and crippled his wife.  If your number is up, it's up. But the odds are getting better and better of Islamic terror actually touching us or people we care about. And when it does, it will be news for one day, and then everybody will forget it except the people who lost someone.








We're off to town for a bit.  We need to go by the bank, the post office, the library, the grocery store, and the hardware store.  Should be an exciting day.  I'm going to stop by the mill on the way and ask them about eating corn meal made from corn sold at feed stores. The miller should have an opinion on that.  If it turns out that eating corn mill from animal feed stocks is bad, then I probably will quit doing it, though I imagine I already glow in the dark by now if it is.

Friends in Safe Spaces. MP-40. (You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you need.)











In the entire United States, there are still two places listed as being in severe drought condition. We are one of them.  The individuals who made this map must know what they are doing, as the spring which bubbles up on my land has stopped. In ordinary times, the water just comes up out of the ground, and flows down the mountain to the bigger creek down slope. Right now, it's dry.   My well is still ok, but it ought to be. It was drilled in "The Drought" of 1988.  When people say "the drought" here, that's what they mean. The same as "The War" means the Civil War.



Right now, it's warm and sunny outside. That will change as the day goes on. There's a massive thunderstorm system building up to the West.  April is tornado season here.  Back in the early 1990's, we had a system come through the county where I worked, and it wiped out whole swaths of the forest. Where there had been trees, now there were nice views of the mountains. It blew away whole neighborhoods outside Dahlonga, Ga.  Nothing but cement slabs left, with pipes sticking up out of them , and White County got hit worse. In some places, houses were completely gone, while a house on the next hill top was untouched. April can be dicey here.  It's no coincidence that Home Depot and the grocery stores all start selling weather radios by the registers in April.



I've been watching the antics of the Democrats during the confirmation hearings for Judge Gorsuch. He's made a good impression, while the fools that make up the Democratic members of the committee have actually managed to embarrass me.  Can you imagine reading from a piece of paper, asking the Judge if he agrees with some previous ruling , when it's obvious you don't understand a word you're reading. I've cringed with embarrassment on occasion, wondering if the Dems don't realize how asinine they look doing this kind of thing.



I don't know if everyone has been following the bizarre machinations of the state governments in Washington, Minnesota, and some of the other leftard states concerning the Moslem immigration imbroglio.

It doesn't matter how much happens in the world to show what a hideous mistake it is for a Western culture to import these people.  The Unicorn and Rainbow crowd just keeps on keeping on.

My wife and I were in Murphy, North Carolina earlier this week, and we saw a giant billboard that had just gone up. It pictured an old Veteran, holding a flag and it said "Veterans before Immigrants!"  I wish I had put the camera in the car, but we'll be back over there soon and I'll get a picture.

Murphy is an old saw mill town, and there are some rough people there. Rough even by North Georgia standards. But they are patriotic people with strong religious values and old fashioned morals.  I'd take them over San Francisco style moon bats any day of the month.



We've had a busy week here.  There was a going out of business sale at a grocery store , and my wife and I made three trips back and forth, loading up the Jeep with anything we could use. They marked down the prices, and then gave you 30% off on that.  We stocked up on canned goods, in particular.
I used up a lot of the canned food in the pantry when my wife was up visiting the kids, but we've replaced all that and I had to carry cases of canned food out to the climate controlled part of the barn, because the storerooms in the house are full.  It's good to have that done.



I also bought 585 lbs of corn , in 45 lb heavy plastic sacks.  You need to be careful of what you buy if you buy corn in feed sacks, make sure it hasn't got any pesticides on it.  If you have a grain mill, you can grind up the corn to make corn meal.  Corn from a feed store comes in two versions , "cracked" and kernel. "Cracked" means it's been run through a mill to bust it up into small pieces an animal can eat. Kernel means it's been stripped from the cob, but not milled.  I buy kernel corn, which takes more work to grind, but I'm more comfortable with it in terms of making sure there's no bugs or gravel in the corn.






Emergency Essentials is having a sale on Mountain House canned foods. These are good for quick meals, when people are too tired to do a lot of mixing and cooking.  They also have some things you might want for variety, even if you have a good amount of long term storage food already.   In this particular catalog, there was a lot of small bits and pieces type of gear that you don't think of until you need it. Worth thumbing through and the catalog is free.




In the last post, I mentioned seeing a young man annihilating four Hillary Ninja who attacked an old man at a pro Trump rally.

I got an email from a friend with amplification of the event, and more pictures.  I was surprised to see a  great many young fellows with the high and tight haircut, many of whom were also administering serious attitude adjustments to the black clad trash.  Reflecting on this, I realized that the rally was taking place within easy driving distance of Camp Pendleton, the big USMC base on the west coast. I wonder......


Thought for the Day:




My treat to myself :






I'm buying one of these as soon as they release the model with the folding stock. I want an MP-40, and the automatic versions are expensive, hard to find, and consume too much ammo too fast for my purposes.  But this gun is exactly what I want.  I'll have to buy the tax stamp for a short barreled rifle, but it's less than renewing my vehicle tags every year.









These guns have been available in Europe for several years and have a good reputation for quality, and functioning.










Or, I guess I could go to Eastern Europe and fish for one in a pond.

Just because a weapon is an older design, doesn't mean it won't get the job done.





Philosophy of the Moment:

Sometimes, you just can't get no satisfaction!






And by the way, are we on the same road as 1861?
After all, April is coming up fast . Maybe Berkeley will be the new Charleston. 







Like Rush L.  said ,  this will only be over when one side wins, and suppresses the other. I don't feel like being suppressed again after 8 year of the Kenyan.

Conan the Barbarian is alive , and well, and living in California.




My wife and I were watching the news last week, early in the morning while we planned what we would do that day.

There had been pro-Trump rallies across the country, and predictably, they had been overrun by Clinton skraelings,  You know the type, dressed up in black and carrying sticks and pepper spray.
Most of the Trump supporters are middle aged  working people.  Often there are lots of retired people in the crowd, and it's usually couples. They don't fare too well when they get attacked by the Clinton Ninja.

So we watched this news clip with resignation, more than anything else.  Four of the Boys in Black were beating up one old guy, trying to tear his flag out of his hands. The other Trump people were yelling and waving their signs, but nobody was stepping in to help the old guy out.

Suddenly, from the bottom of the screen, this young man comes roaring in. Looked to be mid twenties, no shirt, combat utility trousers, and black combat boots. He had a "high and tight" haircut. I didn't think anyone wore them anymore, but it used to be you had your head shaved except for a little thin layer on the top, and you had the middle shaved out of that.


high and tight haircut


This guy was clearly a weight lifter. He smashed down one skraeling with a single punch to the face. Then he pummeled the Clintonite who had his hands on the old guys flag, and before the other two could get away he snatched them up, and just beat hell out of them. They were laying on the ground, in the fetal position, while he whaled them.  In about 15 seconds this fellow destroyed all 4 of these punks.

My wife and I were amazed. She said "excellent!" It was very uplifting.  The clip was short, but I have been looking for it on YouTube and on Fox Videos, because I'm sure you'd enjoy it as much as I did. I'm sick of seeing people who want to support the President being sprayed in the face with mace , and beaten with sticks and clubs. I hope whoever this fellow was, he has lots of friends.




There are a couple of new magazines out on the newstands that might be useful to some folks.



American Survival Guide just came out with another special edition.  It's not bad,  Has some good articles on growing and preserving food, on security precautions, survival communications, and a lot more. It was a good refresher for me , and it would be great for someone just getting into the lifestyle on a serious basis.  Costs ten bucks, but I think it was worth it.


This months American Survival Guide is a pretty good issue. They've moved away from the "go hide out in the hills" and are having more articles on subjects everyone can benefit from. Part three of Mykel Hawke's series of articles is in this issue, and it was interesting. Some good photo work in the magazine, as well. I'm not sure how useful the article on brewing your own beer is, but I know in ancient times people drank beer instead of water because the water was crawling with diseases.

 A picture is worth a thousand words.

Sisyphus the ferret.



I've been pondering the blog. It's been going on now for a few years, and I'm not sure where I want to go with it now.  At some point, I'll get it figured out. Until then, here's a good song for reflection, from the "Sunlounger" album.

Snow



Snowing outside. We are on the Southern edge of the big storm going into the NE.  Started out as sleet but has turned to snow now, just before midnight.

Everything is finished up at my mother in laws, at least as far as I am concerned. My wife is staying over there with her siblings for a few days, as they take care of the business associated with my mother in law's possessions, etc.  The inexorable process has to work it's way to it's final conclusion.

I'm hoping things get back to normal now.

Green Side Out! Brown Side Out!


Anybody out there in the Marines long enough ago  to know what that phrase signifies?


All is chaos here:

Some German General , and I can't remember his name, said "Order, Counter Order, Disorder!"

He was right.

My wife is back and we are all embroiled in this big imbroglio at the moment.  I'll be back when the dust settles.

Let me leave you with this recent interview on Fox News.  Bill Binney knows what's going on. His partial resume is on the post before this one.

Passing the Word

Joel could use a little help.

Big Brother is Listening. Stand By to Stand By.



"Binney is the NSA executive who created the agency’s mass surveillance program for digital information, who served as the senior technical director within the agency, who managed six thousand NSA employees.
He was a 36-year NSA veteran widely regarded as a “legend” within the agency and the NSA’s best-ever analyst and code-breaker.
Binney also mapped out the Soviet command-and-control structure before anyone else knew how, and so predicted Soviet invasions before they happened (“in the 1970s, he decrypted the Soviet Union’s command system, which provided the US and its allies with real-time surveillance of all Soviet troop movements and Russian atomic weapons”).
Binney told Washington's Blog:
NSA has all the data through the Upstream programs (Fairview/Stormbrew/Blarney)  [background] and backed up by second and some third party country collection.

Plus the FBI and CIA plus others, as of the last month of the Obama administration, have direct access to all the NSA collection (metadata and content on phones,email and banking/credit cards etc.) with no attempt at oversight by anybody [background]. This is all done under Executive Order 12333 [the order which allows unlimited spying no matter what intelligence officials claim] ....

FBI would only ask for a warrant if they wanted to be able to take it into court at some point given they have something meaningful as evidence. This is clearly true given the fact the President Trump's phone conversations with other country leaders were leaked to the mainstream media.
In other words, Binney is saying that Trumps phones were bugged by the NSA without a warrant - remember, top NSA whistleblowers have previously explained that the NSA is spying on virtually all of the digital communications of Americans. - and the NSA shared the raw data with the CIA, FBI and other agencies."

Meanwhile....







My mother in law has been moved to a hospice. No one knows what is going to happen, everyone has their own plan they want everybody else to adhere to.  Right now I'm at home waiting for the next flurry of directives.

"It was a day when every cat one stroked, flew in one's face."


"When in Danger, When in Doubt, Run in Circles, Scream and Shout!"
Old USMC saying.


My sister in law called me this Sunday.  My wife's mother is in the hospital.  This is not an unusual occurrence. More than once, the alarm has been sounded and my wife's siblings have roared down to Georgia from all over the country, only to find it was a false alarm.

This may be one of those times, or it may not.  My wife was flying home next week, but now her brother is picking her up in a Northern city, where she is staying with the kids, and the two of them are driving to my sister in law's.  They should be there tomorrow.

I will probably wind up making the trip over the mountains to her place (about 120 miles round trip over some of the worst roads in North Georgia) and back daily until this gets resolved one way or the other.

I may be up S**t Creek without a paddle. As I have bragged  before, I don't own a suit, a white shirt with a collar, a tie, or "suit shoes". I gave all that to Good Will within a week of walking out of the office for the last time, and swore I'd never put that stuff on again.  I'm going to be  "toasted" in jeans and a flannel shirt when I kick off.

But here, a lot of store is set in everybody showing up for a big service at the church, and then again at a funeral ceremony. You have to wear a suit. Not doing so is an insult and would probably result in me getting beat up at the church by other mourners. I s**t you not, this is Georgia.

I don't even know where to find a suit. They don't sell them anywhere in this county, and my wife has always bought all my clothes for the last 35 years. And before that, I wore uniforms......
She'll have to handle that problem. There are places where her sister lives that can probably handle the whole rig. I bought a couple of suits in Okinawa I liked really well, the tailor made them for me . One was bright blue and one was completely white. When I got married my wife gave them to the Navy Relief thrift shop...... She picked out all my clothes for work when I started with the Oil and Gas outfit  so I never had a problem with that. Looked very professional, and was very uncomfortable.

What an unmitigated pain in the posterior. If I don't post or check for comments for awhile, that's what's going on. Maybe it will be much ado about nothing, but it doesn't sound like it right now.




On the Gun Front:


Based on the advice of some other entusiasts, I am looking into an AK-47 underfolder or side folder for the Jeep.  Cheaper, I already have mags and ammo (none of which I have for the Krink) for the AK.



Lots cheaper than $1300 for an American made Krinkov. And the Krink doesn't use the same magazines or ammo as the AK-47.



On the News:


I am no fan of  the individual Snowden, but the movie is informative. It's an accurate representation of what was going on when the NSA was  reading everyone's email, listening to everyone's phone calls, and James Clapper was vehemently denying it all at Senate Sub Committee meetings. That is, he was lying and committing perjury.

Here's a clip from the movie.






Why does this matter?  Because Schumer and Franken are showing up on CNN, with big banner headlines under their interviews, that say "Franken crushes Trump claims of wire tap." And how did Bunny Boy "crush" these highly believable accusations? Well, it could only happen in Washington. They are dragging out Mr. Clapper, and having him say the  allegations are not true. The same guy that Diane Feinstein wanted to send to prison for perjuring himself to congress.







When Clapper said this, he knew full well that the NSA was monitoring EVERYTHING and collecting info on EVERYBODY.  But he was an Obama appointee, and so when the Snowden thing blew up, and exposed his lies,  he just wrote an apologetic letter to Feinstein , no charges were ever filed.


Now there's every reason to believe that the Obama intelligence services were wire tapping Trump Tower, but the Demi's want everybody to believe they weren't because James Tapper says so!



Give me a break!





 I know Snowden and what he did infuriates a lot of people. But the movie is worth seeing. Forget him as a person, and just look at the way the NSA follows everything that everyone does. Every email you send, every cell phone call you make, every land line call, every blog comment, every blog post.

It's no wonder a lot of people won't blog , or even post a comment on a blog.

Even the NSA has not disputed the portrayal of their capabilities or their operating procedures as depicted in the movie. I don't care for Oliver Stone, but I learned some things from the  movie I didn't know.

It's worth two dollars to rent, what can you lose?


Well, short post today because I have some things to get done here before the Sound and the Fury starts with the mother in law.

Blood in the Streets. The Krinkov, a must have fashion statement for today?



There were pro Trump demonstrations in more than 40 American cities Saturday. Some were relatively small and quiet. In some of the big cities, not so.  In California the pro Trump demonstrators were attacked by Schumerites.  Here's a video from a local television station. As far as I know, it wasn't on MSM, or anything like it.





I know there were skirmishes in Atlanta. This time, the pro - Trump people did not bring firearms and predictably, the black clad Hillary Ninja apparently attacked them. I was told this on the CB this afternoon, but I haven't confirmed it.

For a good overall view of the fighting and related events, here's a link to a blog sent to me by a friend. I have not seen this before but it seems reputable, and what is on it corresponds to what I am reading at other blogs on the net.

Let me say  this.  I don't trust anything the MSM says, other than Fox. And they are getting pretty shaky, depending on whose show you watch.  To find out what's really going on, you have to try to find reputable articles by people whom you trust, or videos that you believe are true.  Lacking the resources of a news organization, it's a judgment call.  Since that episode with the sniper story, I have been very careful not to post anything I think might be fake. If I find out that I posted something that was not true, I'll let everyone know. If I am repeating something I was told by someone I trust, I'll make that clear too.

And so it begins.





Who is organizing these Pro-Trump demonstrations?

I haven't been able to find out a lot about that, but these people are involved. You can sign up for their emails to get the word on demonstrations to support the President in your area. I signed up.  If there's one I can get to, I want to go. Even if it means driving to Atlanta.  I'll have to rent a car to do it, since I don't want my Cherokee trashed and I'm not taking off my bumper stickers.



Main Street Patriots web page


"The Best is the Enemy of Good Enough." Old Russian Proverb.

But not always:


Back when I still thought it helped, I used to send emails to idiots like Ted Kennedy, expressing my displeasure with anti-gun legislation. I always attached this to the email (the unedited photo) with the caption "if you want it, come and get it." I wouldn't dare do this today, as the FBI would undoubtedly kick down my door and murder me. But there was still some freedom of expression back in the mid 2000 time frame.


I've been driving around with an HK G3 in the back of my jeep since my unsettling run in with some Hispanic businessmen out in the national forest not long ago.  I've always carried a pistol, but now I carry a rifle and a pistol.







I started out carrying an AK-47 (1990's era Norinco MAK-90 rebuilt with Choate stock).

But a friend pointed out to me that the 7.62X39 cartridge was an intermediate cartridge, and maybe something more powerful was in order.

So I went to the HK G-3.










But this is a full sized battle rifle.  Sitting in the front seat of a Jeep Cherokee, there's no way to deploy this rifle without getting out of the car. It's too long. Maybe that wouldn't be a problem in most cases, but if someone surprises you, you might be reduced to just using a pistol.

What would be perfect is the Krinkov version of the AK.


I don't want anything fully automatic.  I don't want the BATF hassles and I don't want the tax stamps you have to have to own the weapon legally. And there's this, a fully automatic Krinkov, if you could find one, would run you more than an MP-40. And I've never been able to bring myself to spend the green to buy an MP-40, something I really want.

So I looked at Semi-Auto American produced Krinks.


Now you run into BATF rules again. You can get a Krink with no stock for under a thousand. That's because BATF considers it a "pistol."  But good luck hitting anything with it.  The kick makes the weapon nearly uncontrollable for the average man. If you are a SEAL, or a Ranger, or just a big guy with experience, this might not be a problem. Provided you don't have arthritis in your wrists.




You can buy a "boot" for the gun. This is not a stock, it's a fitting that lets you put your arm inside it and brace the pistol that way.  I don't like it.  But I know a fellow for whom I have a great deal of respect, who does. He bought one for an AR-15 "pistol" and found it very satisfactory. But if I am going to spend a small fortune for a gun, I want it to be one that suits me.

You can buy an American made Krinkov with a fixed stock, but it will have a phony silencer on it to get the barrel length just over legal. They cost a lot. About $1300.00 as far as I can tell.



The fixed stock and the barrel extension mean I'm getting close to the same length as one of my AK-47 's with the Choate stock.

I'm open to suggestion if anyone knows a way to get a Krinkov that looks like the one above for less than $1300. I think that's the best solution for me, if it 's affordable.






People are still laughing about the High and Mighty "Celebrities" making fools of themselves at the Oscars. Here are some good cartoons.








Here are a few more  good ones I got today.









Remember that wretch that was insulting the Navy Seal who was killed, and his wife. The "Hillary Staffer". Anybody need someone to do janitor work? He's looking for a new job since he got fired from his old one.
