Become the Leadership Cadre

This came my way in an e-mail. I have no idea who J.M. is or where else this is published, but thought it was worth sharing. I changed a word and inserted paragraph breaks for readability. It is long and targeted to a specific audience. Read and review when you have a chance. – Ted Think Globally, Act Locally: Become the Leadership Cadre Focus on the 25M Target First There is a consistent interest in the Patriot movement to focus on the bigger picture, on a national level. This ranges from insisting on the misdeeds of the current administration, to concerns about things like the Zimmerman case. This is not necessarily a bad trend, and it even makes sense on […]

SOF Imperatives for Preparedness

This came my way in an e-mail. I have no idea who J.M. is or where else this is published, but thought it was worth sharing. I changed a word and inserted paragraph breaks for readability. It is long and targeted to a specific audience. Read and review when you have a chance. – Ted The SOF Imperatives for Preparedness (I was working on the revisions for “The Book” today, and as I re-read and made notes to this section, I realized it would make a pretty good, relevant article topic in itself. I spent half an hour or so editing it into article format, rather than the rough-draft book excerpt it was, and here ya go…–J.M.) U.S. military doctrine […]

Mr. Lucky part II

Our incredible lightening-flash journey from there, to here was splattered with tremendous good luck. As I mentioned here: teddunlap.net/kicked-into-hyperdrive I was extremely grateful for copious quantities of good fortune in making it all happen. As I also suggested in bitterrootbugle.com/rare-birds I DO understand that “good luck” is only part luck. Nevertheless, I have considered myself to be on an incredible lucky streak with darn-near everything going my way. Then I lost it. The Midas Touch left my hands. Some things just didn’t go my way. I was sanguine about it. I had a heckuva run. I got more than any one man deserves. I was grateful for the long-enough run of luck that delivered Missy and me to Nervana. Love […]

rare birds

A growing number of us know we are solidly in an economic, cultural and political world that is changing for the worse. Many understand we are on the verge of change that is dramatically worse. “What can I do?” constantly rolls around in our heads, but delivers no good answers. “Preppers” are that special breed, we all know as crackpots, cranks, eccentrics, hippies and other images that cannot fit our self-image no matter how ugly our current trajectory looks. Of course the globalists, the ruling elite, want you to hold that image. Too many preppers and The Great Take-down may not work according to their plan. Every day you pass forks in the road, “Y” intersections, “T” intersections and wide […]

shallow

You don’t understand modern writing. He used far too many words. Nowadays we get straight to the point. Thus wrote my daughter as a review of an essay I forwarded to her. Her world is one of blazing thumbs, words without vowels, two-word sentences and paragraphs without punctuation. “thx” now occupies the place where “thank you” used to be, “pls” where please used to be and “ppl” has supplanted individuals, friends, family and community. These modern sophisticates have so perverted the word “friends” that they have thousands of imaginary friends on facebook and walk down the street beside strangers stroking their smart phones. In times of need a thousand friends send their prayers and good wishes while none of them […]

Montana medical campfire

The future of USA medical care is grim for both customers and providers. Darby Montana has great potential to help both. It is remote, independent, a popular fly-in location and could use a clinic or medical center. It has a few vacant buildings that could easily house a small or medium clinic or medical center. It is a beautiful, peaceful place that has attracted a large number of financially secure residents who could play significant roles in establishing a medical enterprise. There are a few local providers who are poorly served by the Hamilton, Montana-dominated medical center 17 miles north, not to mention a large number of customers who would enjoy alternatives. — July 31st, Mountain Spirit Inn will host […]

heat wave

I put this up at Bitterroot Bugle .com, but not here as I didn’t want to be saying, “Neener-neener-neener”. However, a conversation with a friend in the southwestern portion of our Idaho Territory led me to post this as an explanation of the differences between our new portion of the territory and the old. As the heat wave landed on us with both feet, I took a trip back to Idaho to really savor it! Actually, this shooting vacation was planned long before the heat wave arrived. Returning home with the uncomfortable weather still dominating the entire region highlights for me the differences in that aspect between my old home and the new… and, of course, further affirms the wisdom […]

theft of retirement accounts

Government Theft of Retirement Accounts Has Begun by Dave Hodges from The Common Sense Show .com Treasury Secretary Jack Lew Is Planning to Steal Selected Federal Retirement Account Many were roundly criticized for daring to say that the Cyprus thefts could visit our shores. If Treasury Secretary Jack Lew gets his way, Cyprus will look like a walk in the park compared to what’s coming because Cyprus was a beta test for the massive theft of private wealth which is on the horizon. In fact, I would say to my fellow countrymen who don’t think the government would ever perpetrate a fraud against the American people in which the government would oversee the outright theft of personal assets of American […]

Physicians’ Declaration of Independence Read & Sign the Declaration at http://AAPSonline.org/pdoi Penned by Richard Amerling, M.D., (updated 7/2013) When in the Course of Human Events, it becomes necessary for one Profession to dissolve the Financial Arrangements which have connected them with Medicare, Medicaid, assorted Health Maintenance Organizations, and diverse Third Party Payers and to assume among the other Professions of the Earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident: that the Physician’s primary responsibility is toward the Patient; that to assure the […]

72 killed resisting gun confiscation in Boston

Boston – National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed by elements of a Para-military extremist faction. Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw. Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right-wing tax protest movement. Gage blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices. The governor, who described the group’s organizers as “criminals,” issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government’s efforts to secure law and […]

swat-ed for bottled water

Commit any felonies lately? by Bart Hinkle from Richmond Times Dispatch Elizabeth Daly went to jail over a case of bottled water. According to the Charlottesville Daily Progress, shortly after 10 p.m. April 11, the University of Virginia student bought ice cream, cookie dough and a carton of LaCroix sparkling water from the Harris Teeter grocery store at the popular Barracks Road Shopping Center. In the parking lot, a half-dozen men and a woman approached her car, flashing some kind of badges. One jumped on the hood. Another drew a gun. Others started trying to break the windows. Daly understandably panicked. With her roommate in the passenger seat yelling “Go, go, go!” Daly drove off, hoping to reach the nearest […]

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.— That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers […]
