Responses To Texas’ New Laws

The Texas legislature has managed to pass several new laws that the Republican/Conservative voters who elected these jokers to Austin have been demanding for quite some time.

Texas has passed “Constitutional Carry,” which allows anyone who is legally able to purchase a firearm to be able to carry it, open or concealed, without a special license. It is about time. For all the impression people have of gun rights, this is an area where Texas does not lead. At least 20 other states have enacted such legislation before we did here in the Lone Star state. So far, there has been little reaction to this law from the Federal government or other states.

The Texas Heartbeat law, which makes illegal to perform or assist in the performance of an abortion after a fetal heartbeat has been detected (sort of) on the other hand has resulted in a firestorm. At least one CEO has been terminated for having the gall to share his support for the law. Ride share service Lyft has promised to cover the legal fees of any drivers who are taken to court for assisting in an illegal abortion. Hollyweird, of course, is calling for protests, bans and boycotts. The wonderful city of Portlandia (formerly known as the city of roses but now better know for rioting) is looking to ban travel to and the trade of goods and services from Texas by city government and employees. The reaction from the Federal government has been most threatening. Joe Biden who couldn’t care in the least about abandoning Americans to the hands of the Taliban has promised the full weight of his ruling junta will be brought to bear on Texas for passing this law. His STASI Department of (in)Justice is already moving to use a 1994 law that protects those seeking or providing abortions from obstruction or threats of physical harm to attack the law and anyone who enforces it. They are attempting to classify this new law as “violence” against those seeking to obtain or provide reproductive health services.”

Today, Governor Abbot signed the Election Integrity bill, making it law. This is the law that drove Demonrat representatives out of Texas to avoid a quorum and the passage of the law (sort of). In actuality, this is a different law by the same name to bamboozle voters into thinking they are getting what they asked for. I haven’t seen any responses on this one but after the firestorm that the Georgia law generated, I am sure it is coming.

All three of these new laws and the reactions they have engendered are indicative of the increasing divide in this nation. There is less and less common ground between the left and the right. Either this nation will split (relatively) peacefully or one side or the other (maybe both) will be destroyed. The left can not coexist with the right. They will not be satisfied until their woke, communist vision of this nation is fully implemented. Those who disagree with them will be silenced; through coercion (bullying), through governmental force or through violence (Antifa, BLM or government agencies). We can protect ourselves by separation, we can submit, or we can fight and many will die. Those are the only choices left.

Stay alert, stay prepared and stay safe.

God bless.

Timothy Hale-Cusanelli – A US Political Prisoner

Timothy Hale-Cusanelli has been an  army reservist for eleven years and is a contractor at the Naval Weapons Station in New Jersey. He has no criminal record.

He was arrested on January 15th of this year for participating in the occupation of the US Capitol on January 6th. He has been held without bail since then and transferred between several jails/prisons in multiple states during that time.

It is reported that many of the January 6th prisoners have been subjected to beatings and torture while being held without bail. There are no specific reports of this man being treated in that manner at this time.

None of the charges against him are for violent crimes. He is not accused of vandalizing or stealing anything. None of the charges include weapons possession or use. The charges he faces are for trespassing, obstruction, disorderly conduct and “parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building.”

The US Department of Justice prosecutor has requested that his trial be delayed until 2022 in order to give them time to build a case against him stating that “the government cannot meet discovery obligations until early 2022. That’s a conservative estimate”

In the meantime, he stays in jail.

The justice department is also accusing him of being a white supremacist and supporting Nazi ideology. No official complaints have ever been filed on him either at his place of employment or in his Army reserve unit. The primary basis for these accusations by the US DoJ, which are not crimes by the way, are the memes found on his phone.

I know what I believe but I would like to hear your thoughts, is this man a political prisoner?

Stay alert, stay prepared and stay safe.

God bless.

The Balkanization Of The US

This is a topic we have seen batted around for a number of years but seems to be gaining more momentum.

Yesterday five rural counties voted to secede from the state of Oregon and become a part of neighboring Idaho. The driving force if the liberal super majority in the state of Oregon. Rural, predominantly conservative, counties feel they have no say in state politics that are completely dominated by Portland and other urban areas.

There is an increasingly vocal call in various places to redraw state boundaries from groups who feel underrepresented in state politics. Usually due to dominance of state politics by large urban areas such as in California, Oregon, Washington and Colorado.

In Texas there was a bill in both the house and senate to put secession on the ballot in November. A bill like this has been submitted many times over recent years in one house or the other. It never even makes it to the agenda for a vote in committee. This time around the bill had much more support and looked like it might make it to a full floor vote.

This is something we are seeing an increase of as well is states positioning themselves for a potential separation from the US as a whole. Several states, including Texas, have moved to set up their own depositories of precious metals and to accept currency other than the US dollar.

Most see balkanization as a bad thing but, to be honest, it may be our best bet to avoid the sort of bloody civil war we are seeing in Syria and Libya. A fairly peaceful split between those part so the country still committed to our founding principles and those hell bent on becoming the next Venezuela.

Stay alert, stay prepared and stay safe.

God bless.

It Is Time To Stand Up, It Is Time To Lead…

I am sick and tired of elected representatives pushing their agendas on us. We elect these folks (clowns) to represent us and then they use every mechanism possible to force us to confirm to their goals and plans.

We are the citizens of this nation. In our representative republic it is the citizens of the nation are the leaders. Our elected representatives are supposed serve us and represent us and our goals, values and agendas. This is true of every elected official from the President to Congress to our local school board members. They are our servants.

When those servants do not represent us it is time to replace them. When they use their power to overrule the citizenry or to stifle the voices of the the citizenry it is time to replace them.

That is the reason for the First Amendment to the US Constitution.

We need to exercise those rights and make our voices heard. Loudly, clearly and peacefully. We need to vote for candidates that represent our views and not for candidates from a specific political party.

Now what happens if we find that we are no longer able to make those staffing changes through the ballot box?

Well, for that situation, and I pray it never comes to this, the founding fathers gave us the Declaration of Independence and the Second Amendment…

Stay alert, stay prepared, stay safe and pray for our nation.

God bless.

A Tale Of Two Armies


According to a number of news sources The Kremlin has ordered combat readiness check of their entire military. Russian officials are being clear that the purpose is to:

…ensure high quality of control, training and security in the movement of military echelons and military equipment.

It appears the Russians what to be ready to defend their borders. It is also clear that they are using this exercise to rattle the cages of Western and Ukrainian politicians.


Instead of focusing on the military readiness of our armed forces, the US military is busy trying to purges their ranks of “extremists.” For those not in the know, that means anyone who does not buy into the legitimacy of The New Regime or anyone who does not agree with AmSoc’s policies and agenda. At the same time AmSoc and their fraudulent puppet, Creepy Uncle Joe, are focusing our military on fighting the “true threat” to America, the weather.

More important to AmSoc than combat readiness is funding and supporting gender fluidity and removing biases. Crazy, outdated, repressionist ideas like not allowing pregnant women to fly combat missions or having physical performance standards that are too high for everyone to pass must be eliminated.


Given these two tales, which military is more likely to be able to perform their primary mission of defending their nation? Given these two tales, which is more likely to deter aggression from hostile powers?

Stay alert, stay prepared and stay safe.

God bless.

Battle Lines Being Drawn

Once Florida and Texas led the way, several states now have executive orders or laws preventing the rollout of “vaccine passports” within their borders.

Several states have or are in the process of passing laws to become “2nd Amendment” sanctuaries preventing local law enforcement from cooperating with the enforcement of unconstitutional Federal firearms laws or executive orders. (Of course, they still haven’t been able to audit ballots from within their own state, specifically Maricopa County, where ruling AmSoc (Demoncrat) are trying to prevent their own election fraud antics from coming to light.)

Arizona has passed a law against the “election reforms” included in HR1 which they refer in the law as the “corrupt politicians act.” Georgia and other states have or are working to enact laws that would run directly counter to the changes proposed in HR1. (Texas and some other states passed those laws several years ago.)

The list of states that are actively working to block and defeat the AmSoc agenda spewing out of Washington DC is growing and growing more active. The “bully pulpit,” sanctuary declarations, counter laws and lawsuits are all being used to counter the socialist power grabs from Washington.

Many of us on the Conservative/libertarian side of the fence are cheering these actions and encouraging even more of it.


What we are seeing is, essentially, the (figurative) redrawing of the Mason-Dixon line from the last American Civil war. Those states actively working against the AmSoc tyranny of The New Regime will likely become the backbone of secession/rebellion in the coming unpleasantness. The battle lines may be more clearly drawn than I (or a lot of people smarter than me) had anticipated. Which might be a good thing. A peaceful dissolution is the only chance we have to avoid the chaos and hell of another civil war.

A strong suggestion…if you are a freedom-loving, Constitution-supporting American it would be a really good idea to get yourself and your family to a “red-state” as soon as practical. There is a strong probability that “your kind” will experience some serious backlash as these lines are drawn. Likewise for AmSoc supporters who reside in “red-states.” If you doubt me, research what happened in “border states” like Missouri and Kansas during the last civil war.

Stay alert, stay prepared and stay safe.

God bless.


Some Animals Are More Equal Than Others

A couple of weeks ago I posted about Prepping in the middle of the collapse (link). In the section on self-defense I warned that since the fall of the Republic the rule of law is over and laws are being selectively enforced based on race and politics:

A word of caution, we are rapidly sliding back into the times when different people groups in our society have different codes of justice. Race, political affiliation, gender, religion and other factors will determine how the laws of this nation are applied to you. So will the locale in which you live (refer back to Get to Safety).

Here is an example of just that.

A Back the Blue/Patriotic caravan was planned in Oregon’s capitol city of Salem. Antifa showed up in “counter protest” which included throwing objects at the vehicles in the caravan including rocks big enough to shatter windows.

As far as I am concerned projectiles thrown with enough force to shatter car windows (especially while the vehicle is in motion) represent a reasonable threat of death or serious bodily injury. It is a deadly assault on those folks driving through town and their passengers.

Oregon police did nothing to stop it.

When one of the motorists stepped out of his vehicle, the Leftist insurgents not only continued their attempt to stone the man to death the armed crowd began to close on the man. I don’t think they were planning to give him a hug.

However the man pulled a firearm, racked a round into the chamber and was promptly arrested by Oregon police.

Yep, those with approved ideologies can commit assault at will but when a person with the wrong ideology goes to defend themselves they are promptly arrested…

Now, two things about this man’s actions:

    1. As everyone should have learned from Reginald Denney’s fate during the Rodney King riots, when a mob or riot situation, do not stop and DO NOT leave the vehicle. If you are encased in a couple of tons of steel and glass stay inside. A dent in your truck is relatively easily repaired and not life threatening. Dents to the brain bucket are not easily repaired and can be fatal.
    2. Why are you carrying on an empty chamber? Why is the chamber empty in the middle of an assault?
    3. Do not pull and brandish the firearm like it is a magic talisman warding off evil. If someone else in the crowd has a firearm, you are potentially giving them justification to pop you first. If it is time to shoot, shoot. If it is not time to shoot keep that smoke wagon un-skinned.

Stay alert, stay prepared and stay safe.

God bless.

Colorado Shooting: How About Some Actual Facts…

How about some ACTUAL facts about the Boulder shooting?

Despite what has been claimed, the shooter was NOT a white man and was NOT a Trump supporter. Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, was born in Syria. Was a devout Muslim and posted support for ISIS on social media. He frequently posted anti-Trump messages on social media.

Biden comes on the air this morning and says that we need to ban “High Capacity” magazines and “Assault Weapons” in response and in order to prevent more such incidents.

Colorado banned magazines holding more than ten rounds back when Obama was still in office (2013 I believe).

Biden says that his previous assault weapons ban reduced mass shootings. The Department of Justice under Obama could not show ANY impact of the assault weapons ban on crime or mass shootings.

The Demonrats are in a full court press to pass any and all the gun control they can. Do not be deceived. This is not about saving lives (it won’t). This is not about preventing mass shootings (it won’t). This is about removing our right to protect ourselves from evil men who shoot up grocery stores, Leftist insurgents bent on burning this nation to the ground and wannabe dictators who believe this country exists to benefit the political class.

Stand up! Contact your senators and tell them how YOU expect them to represent YOU.

Prepare! The time when we can change the course of the nation through the traditional means guaranteed by the Constitution is rapidly coming to an end (if it hasn’t already). When the government is no longer governing with the consent of the people…bad things happen. Time and again we have seen tyrannical governments using force to silence the voices they don’t care to hear. We, as a nation, for the first time in my memory need to be prepared to face this situation. As violence increases it begins to affect all of us, whether we are a part of the violence or not. You need to be able to defend yourself and your loved ones. You need to be able to provide necessities in the midst of chaos and shortage. You need to be prepared for the financial chaos that will accompany such times.

Pray! The darkness cannot stand against the light. Those who are driving our nation to the brink of chaos are in turn driven by dark and evil forces. Pray that we will turn away from this crisis. That we will see a revival in this nation. Only God can save us at this point.

Stay alert, stay prepared and stay safe.

God bless.

Very Interesting: Democrats Don’t Want Biden To Have Sole Authority To Order Nuclear Strike

A groups of House Demonrats are calling for Biden to give up sole authority to launch a nuclear strike. This responsibility, implemented decades ago, ensured civilian control of the nation’s nuclear arsenal.

There have been specific times when the president was incapacitated when this responsibility was passed to the vice-president. However, in this case, members of the president’s own party are calling for a change that would prevent Biden from launching nuclear missiles without authorization from the vice-president and/or Speaker of the House.

This was not in the form of a bill that, if passed, would codify this process into law for all future presidents but a specific request to Biden and his team. Given the fact that Harris is already fielding Creepy Uncle Joe’s calls with foreign leaders and now this request from leading members of his own party it casts even more doubt as to whether the man is mentally capable of performing the duties that have been handed to him in a fraudulent election.

We live in interesting times, that’s for sure.

Stay alert, stay prepared and stay safe.

Quotes Of The Day: Impeachment Edition

This was very well said I think someone must have written it for him) and it expresses the feelings of an awful lot of Americans these days:

Our cherished Constitutional Republic was founded on the impartial rule of law, the indispensable safeguard for our liberties, our rights and our freedoms.

It is a sad commentary on our times that one political party in America is given a free pass to denigrate the rule of law, defame law enforcement, cheer mobs, excuse rioters, and transform justice into a tool of political vengeance, and persecute, blacklist, cancel and suppress all people and viewpoints with whom or which they disagree. I always have, and always will, be a champion for the unwavering rule of law, the heroes of law enforcement, and the right of Americans to peacefully and honorably debate the issues of the day without malice and without hate.

-Donald Trump

The second quote is from the blog The Smallest Minority and is in response to the absurdity of calling the Jan. 6 Capitol incursion an “insurrection” or “attempted coup:”

…if we wanted to really be violent, there would have been special elections. -Christopher Greenstein

I have seen it said better but can’t find the other quotes but the bottom line is that Conservatives own the majority of the weapons in this country. Many of them train with them regularly and many are exceptionally good hunters who can pick off game animals at long range with high levels of precision. If there was an insurrection of attempted coup by Conservatives a lot of Congresscritters would have been laid to rest on January 6th or since.

My grandfather used to tell me a story about some kids who used to throw sticks and small rocks at the alligators in the park near their home. One day one of the alligators had enough and what had been fun and games at the expense of a twelve foot reptile became a nightmare, a very bloody nightmare. Please pray that the “kids” with the sticks grow up before they end up in an even more bloody nightmare.

Stay alert, stay prepared and stay safe.

God bless.
