The Way the Wind Blows

NB: This will be one of my more disjointed posts.  Today’s events make clear where the world is headed…and one way or another, it ain’t pretty.   But my views on that are for another day. Just a couple of days ago, I wrote “The Takeover is Complete.”  Trump has gone from radical to neocon insider in a few short weeks.  The post was regarding Trump’s statements toward Assad and Syria – a 180 degree turn from his campaign, and since then backed up by Tomahawk Cruise Missiles. Not only has what I have written turned out to be true, but … Continue reading

Your Bug Barometer

Exceptionally mild winter temperatures across much of the US will lead to a very buggy spring and summer. The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) released its bi-annual bug barometer – a guide showing expected pest activity throughout the US for the upcoming warmer seasons. According to the guide, the mild winter temperatures and periodic heavy precipitation or moisture in most areas will lead to an abundance of pests including mosquitoes, ticks, and cockroaches. Why are the most advertised Gold and Silver coins NOT the best way to invest? The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) released its bi-annual bug barometer (pictured) … Continue reading

Washington Has Crossed Russia’s Red Line

Washington’s military attack on Syria is unambiguously a war crime. It occurred without any UN authorization or even the fake cover of a “coalition of the willing.” Washington’s attack on Syria occurred in advance of an investigation of the alleged event that Washington is trying to use as its justification. Indeed, Washington’s story of Syrian use of chemical weapons is totally implausible. All chemical weapons were removed from Syria by Russia and turned over to the US and its European allies. Syria has no such weapons and has no reason to use them and every reason not to. Moreover, it … Continue reading

Bomb the Usual Arabs

It seems that every new US president has to prove his machismo…or make his bones, as wiseguys say…by bombing the usual Arabs.  By now, it’s almost a rite of passage.  The American public loves it. So we just saw the US launch 59 or 60 $1.5million apiece cruise missiles at a western Syrian airfield to express President Trump’s outrage caused by seeing injured children allegedly caused by a Syrian government toxic gas attack. But what, Mr. President, about all those Iraqi, Syrian and Afghan babies killed by US B-52 and B-1 heavy bombers?  Or the destruction of the defiant Iraqi … Continue reading

These People Frighten Me

Most of the things worth remembering during the 2008 presidential debates were uttered by Ron Paul.  But Mike Gravel, the former U.S. senator from Alaska had a moment.  Years earlier in the Senate, Gravel had distinguished himself for his opposition to the Vietnam War and the draft. Then, in the first Democrat debate of the 2008 cycle, Gravel looked at the candidates posturing their bellicosity on the stage around him, including the now notorious warmongers Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, and said, “I got to tell you, after standing up with them, some of these people frighten me — they … Continue reading

Exposing the Party of Lincoln

Dr. Wilson has written an excellent book that every Republican and Independent should read. He exposes the true Republican Party of Lincoln and Bush. However, hopefully, Trump will change the Republican Party from an establishment party to a grass-root party, which the establishment disdain. Myths, Misunderstandings and Outright lies about owning Gold. Are you at risk? The Republic Party, the Stupid Party, is not what Democratic Party, the Evil Party, or even -rank-and-file Republicans believe it is. The Republic Party is a void reflection of the Democratic Party — only worse. Dr. Wilson illustrates the major difference between the two … Continue reading

Hot Stuff

By Dr. Mercola A wonderfully zesty condiment to add to prime rib or other cuts of grass fed beef, horseradish has an unmistakable heat that radiates not so much in your mouth as in your nose. While its exact origin isn’t certain, horseradish probably originated in Mediterranean, Europe, and Asian regions, which alludes to its long, rich history. Greek mythology, for instance, considered horseradish to be worth its weight in gold. Cooks and healers continued making use of this root veggie in 15th century England, and centuries later the earliest American presidents grew it in their gardens. Today, about 85 … Continue reading

Are You Mentally Prepared To Use Your Gun?

Going to the firing range isn’t enough to get you ready to handle an emergency in which you may need to use your firearm. There’s a split second decision process in which you must decide if a) the threat is legitimate, b) if lethal force is necessary, and c) if the answers to a and b are yes, whether you can accurately take out your target without collateral damage. Training at a virtual simulation shooting range can help you learn to use good judgment when making these rapid decisions. If you are a gun owner, especially one who carries a … Continue reading

The Candlemakers’ Petition

French economist Frédéric Bastiat was a man far ahead of his time. He was a “classical liberal,” which today would identify him as a libertarian. He expanded upon the free-market argument set forth by Adam Smith in 1776. In 1845, the French government levied protective tariffs on scores of items, from sewing needles to locomotives. The intent was to protect French industries from companies outside France that could produce the goods more cheaply. The reaction from Mister Bastiat was to publish “The Candlemakers’ Petition,” a satirical proposal to the government that was intended to help them see the nonsense of … Continue reading

Harvest Rainwater for Survival and Self-Sufficiency

Living in the desert has taught me not to take water for granted.  Unlike the Pacific Northwest, I am not footsteps away from streams, ponds, or a vast sea just waiting for me to collect and purify for personal use. In a continuing effort to educate our readers on the finer aspects of self-sufficiency, I have invited Dan Chiras to share his best strategies and tips for creating a rain catchment system that works. If Dan’s name sounds familiar, it is because he is the author of two Prepper Book Festival titles, Survive in Style: The Prepper’s Guide to Living … Continue reading

Making Democracy Unsafe for the World

This originally appeared on USA Today. This week is the 100th anniversary of President Woodrow Wilson’s speech to Congress seeking a declaration of war against Germany. Many people celebrate this centenary of America’s emergence as a world power. But, when the Trump administration is bombing or rattling sabers at half a dozen nations while many Democrats clamor to fight Russia, it is worth reviewing World War One’s high hopes and dire results. Wilson was narrowly re-elected in 1916 based on a campaign slogan, “He kept us out of war.” But Wilson had massively violated neutrality by providing armaments and money to … Continue reading

Me and TV

I had been a DirecTV subscriber for years, mostly so I could watch sports, which is the only reason I have a television. I’ve gone long stretches of my life without a TV, but it is a nice convenience for when you’re stuck at home with nothing better to do. I do enjoy watching baseball and football. Some of the long form dramas produced by the big cable channels have been good too. Otherwise, I’ve never developed the habit of following sitcoms and serials. I doubt I could name one show popular in prime time. Back in January, I decided … Continue reading

New Cold War Lines Are Being Fortified

For those of you who have completely fallen in line with the thought that President Trump is the panacea to all our problems, it’s advisable that you rethink that stance.  Firstly, there are interests behind the throne that are neither controlled by nor parallel to the interests of the administration.  Secondly, the “transition period” is not over.  It is far from over, and the lines that are developing…both of intra and inter-party dissension domestically…and the “Second Cold War” lines throughout the world…have materialized.  They are beginning to solidify, and they are becoming fortified. Yes, it was mentioned last year that … Continue reading
