      “I recommend taking the vaccines. I did it, it’s good. Take the vaccines.” — Donald J Trump, August 21st, 2021

      “I hope everyone remembers when they’re getting the COVID-19 Vaccine, that if I wasn’t President, you wouldn’t be getting that beautiful ‘shot’ for 5 years, at best, and probably wouldn’t be getting it at all. I hope everyone remembers!” — Donald J Trump, February 28th 2021

      “I would recommend it and I would recommend it to a lot of people that don’t want to get it and a lot of those people voted for me, frankly.” — Donald J Trump, March 16th 2021

      “We have our freedoms and we have to live by that, and I agree with that also. But it is a great vaccine. It is a safe vaccine, and it is something that works.” — Donald J Trump, March 17th 2021

      “Get those shots everyone!” — Donald J Trump, December 17th 2020

      “I guess in a certain way, I’m the father of the vaccine because I was the one that pushed it. To get it done in less than nine months was a miracle.” – Donald J Trump, April 29th 2021

      “Everybody, go get your shot.” — Donald J Trump, February 28th 2021

      “It works incredibly well. 95%, maybe even more than that…and it is really saving our country and it is saving frankly the world.” — Donald J Trump, March 9th 2021

      “It will save millions of lives, and soon end the pandemic once and for all. These vaccines are also very safe.” — Donald J Trump, December 11th 2020

      “The Vaccine and the Vaccine rollout are getting the best of reviews. Moving along really well. Get those shots everyone!” — Donald J Trump, December 17th 2020

      “Well, I got the Pfizer, and I would have been very happy with any of them. I thought a very bad statement was when they did a pause on Johnson & Johnson. I think that frightened people. That was a bad thing to do. At that time, when they did the pause, they had six people that may have had some difficulty out of millions that received it. But I think the pause was a very bad thing to do.” — Donald J Trump, October 2nd 2021

      “During my administration, everybody wanted the vaccine. There was nobody saying oh, gee, I don’t want to take it. Now they say that. And that’s because they don’t trust the Biden administration. I can think of no other reason. But they say we don’t want it, we aren’t going to take it. When I was there, everybody wanted it and we were doing great. Well, the military did a fantastic job.” — Donald J Trump, October 7th 2021

      “I’m very proud of the vaccine, I’ve taken it, you’ve probably taken it. But I’m very proud of it. I think we could have another situation with the Spanish Flu, 1917, where up to 100 million people were killed.” — Donald J
Trump, August 18th 2021

    Choose one of two possible explanations: 1) the Covid-19 episode from the beginning was a fantastic fiasco of blundering incompetence by hundreds of officials from many agencies plus elected leaders, and at every stage was made worse by additional incompetent actions aimed at concealing massive chains of prior misdeeds producing more misdeeds resulting in the wholesale collapse of authority in our country. In other words, an epic clusterfuck.

    Or 2) The entire Covid episode is a chain of crimes committed deliberately with malicious intent to kill and injure large numbers of people while contriving to deprive the survivors of their basic liberties and their property. Because identical events are seen in all the other nations of Western Civ, it would be reasonable to infer some kind of coordination managed by a supervisory force or entity. What we see is a globalist coalition formed of the World Economic Forum (WEF), the World Health Organization (WHO), The European Union (EU), the United Nations (UN), the pharmaceutical industry, the “Five Eyes” intel alliance, the global banking establishment, The Democratic Party, and scores of well-endowed non-governmental agencies such as the George Soros constellation of councils and foundations. What else is unseen?

    One conspicuously strange element of the whole picture is the phantom leadership of the supposed world hegemon USA in the figurehead, “Joe Biden.” Never in history has such a move into tyranny been fronted by such an embarrassingly un-charismatic empty vessel. Never in our country’s history have our affairs whirled in such a mystifying flux of bewildering forces. Even our Civil War was a more straightforward clash of interests. Events are moving quickly now. They’re setting up the steam-table for that banquet of consequences.

    There you are doing lunch in Chili’s, chowing down like a big dawg on that legendary Fajita Trifecta with Laser-Nitro-‘Cano sauce dripping off your chin, and warshin the whole mess down with imperial gallons of Mojito’s, little aware that your life is being devalued and you can’t do anything about it. ‘Cept stay yourself at home on the porch.

    A shocking next chapter in COVID19 vaccine development

    Despite the overwhelming safety issues, The National Institute of Health (NIH) continues to fund programs seeking to develop novel ways to deliver mRNA vaccines. Science Translational Medicine recently published an NIH study celebrating the accomplishment of effectively delivering the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine in an inhalable vapor form. From the authors:
    “An inhalable platform for messenger RNA (mRNA) therapeutics would enable minimally invasive and lung-targeted delivery for a host of pulmonary diseases… Here, we report an inhalable polymer-based vehicle for delivery of therapeutic mRNAs to the lung. We optimized biodegradable poly(amine-co-ester) (PACE) polyplexes for mRNA delivery… We applied this technology to develop a mucosal vaccine for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 and found that intranasal vaccination with spike protein–encoding mRNA polyplexes induced potent cellular and humoral adaptive immunity and protected susceptible mice from lethal viral challenge…”

    The government and Big Pharma are showing their hand.

    “The ability to efficiently deliver mRNA to the lung would have applications for vaccine development, gene therapy, and more,” casually remarks the editor of Science.

    Chief of Epidemiology at The Wellness Company and vaccine critic Dr. Harvey Risch recently warned in an interview with The Epoch Times:

    “We know that the COVID vaccines have done various degrees of damage to the immune system in a fraction of people who’ve taken them. And that damage could be anywhere from getting COVID more often, getting other infectious diseases, and perhaps it may also be cancer in the longer term.”

    I have read here and at other sites about a group called “BlackRock”. To my chagrin I always just assumed they were just another little group targeting one side or the other, probably the type that pack their pistols on their hip when they shop at Costco was what I thought.
    Whew boy, did I have that wrong. I encourage everyone her to read the whole BlackRock entry on Wikipedia. Read all the way down to the bottom and weep!

    • Trooper John Smith September 25, 2023, 12:11 PM

      I found out a few months ago that my retirement portfolio contained some Blackrock. I immediately called my guy and told him to terminate it with extreme prejudice. I won’t let my money fund their shenanigans.

    On this date in 1780, Sevier crossed the Watauga River with about 900 grim faced Overmountain Men on their way to turn the tide of the Revolution. Davy Crockett’s father was among them.

    • ghostsniper September 25, 2023, 1:17 PM

      Speaking of Davy…


      From The Life of Colonel David Crockett, compiled by Edward S. Ellis
      (Philadelphia: Porter & Coates, 1884)

      David Crockett
      Member of Congress 1827-31, 1832-35

      One day in the House of Representatives, a bill was taken up appropriating money for the benefit of a widow of a distinguished naval officer. Several beautiful speeches had been made in it’s support. The Speaker was just about to put the question when Crockett arose:

      “Mr. Speaker– I have as much respect for the memory of the deceased, and as much sympathy for the suffering of the living, if suffering there be, as any man in this House, but we must not permit our respect for the dead or our sympathy for a part of the living to lead us into an act of injustice to the balance of the living. I will not go into an argument to prove that Congress has no power to appropriate this money as an act of charity. Every member upon this floor knows it. We have the right, as individuals, to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity; but as members of Congress we have no right so to appropriate a dollar of the public money. Some eloquent appeals have been made to us upon the ground that it is debt due the deceased. Mr. Speaker, the deceased lived long after the close of the war; he was in office to the day of his death, and I have never heard that the government was in arrears to him. Every man in this House knows it is not a debt. We cannot, without the grossest corruption, appropriate this money as the payment of a debt. We have not the semblance of authority to appropriate it as a charity. Mr. Speaker, I have said we have the right to give as much money of our own as we please. I am the poorest man on this floor. I cannot vote for this bill, but I will give one week’s pay to the object, and if every memeber of Congress will do the same, it will amount to more than the bill asks.”

      He took his seat. Nobody replied. The bill was put upon its passage, and, instead of passing unanimously, as was generally supposed, and as, no doubt it would, but for that speech, it received but few votes, and, of course, was lost.

      Later, when asked by a friend why he had opposed the appropriation, Crockett gave this explanation:

      “Several years ago I was one evening standing on the steps of the Capitol with some other members of Congress, when our attention was attracted by a great light over in Georgetown. It was evidently a large fire. We jumped into a hack and drove over as fast as we could. In spite of all that could be done, many houses were burned and many families made homeless, and besides, some of them had lost all but the clothes they had on. The weather was very cold, and when I saw so many women and children suffering, I felt that something ought to be done for them. The next morning a bill was introduced appropriating $20,000 for their relief. We put aside all other business and rushed it through as soon as it could be done.

      “The next summer, when it began to be time to think about the election, I concluded I would take a scout around among the boys of my district. I had no opposition there, but, as the election was some time off, I did not know what might turn up. When riding one day in a part of my district in which I was more of stranger than any other, I saw a man in a field plowing and coming toward the road. I gauged my gait so that we should meet as he came to the fence. As he came up, I spoke to the man. He replied politely, but, as I thought, rather coldly.

      “I began: “Well, friend, I am one of those unfortunate beings called candidates, and—-‘

      “Yes, I know you you are Colonel Crockett. I have seen you once before, and voted for you the last time you were elected. I suppose you are out electioneering now, but you had better not waste your time or mine. I shall not vote for you again.’

      “This was a sockdolager….I begged him to tell me what was the matter.

      “Well, Colonel, it is hardly worth-while to waste time or words upon it. I do not see how it can be mended, but you gave a vote last winter which shows that either you have not capacity to understand the Constitution, or that you are wanting in honesty and firmness to be guided by it. In either case you are not the man to represent me. But I beg your pardon for expressing it in that way. I did not intend to avail myself of the privilege of the constituent to speak plainly to a candidate for the purpose of insulting or wounding you. I intended by it only to say that your understanding of the Constitution is very different from mine; and I will say to you what, but for rudeness, I should not have said, that I believe you to be honest…. But an understanding of the Constitution different from mine I cannot overlook, because the Constitution, to be worth anything, must be held sacred, and rigidly observed in all its provisions. The man who wields power and misinterprets it is the more dangerous the more honest he is.’

      “‘I admit the truth of all you say, but there must be some mistake about it, For I do not remember that I gave any vote last winter upon any constitutional question.’

      “‘No, Colonel, there’s no mistake. Though I live here in the back woods and seldom go from home, I take the papers from Washington and read very carefully all the proceedings in Congress. My papers say last winter you voted for a bill to appropriate $20,000 to some suffers by fire in Georgetown. Is that true?’

      “‘Well, my friend, I may as well own up. You have got me there. But certainly nobody will complain that a great and rich country like ours should give the insignificant sum of $20,000 to relieve it’s suffering women and children, particularly with a full and overflowing Treasury, and I am sure, if you had been there, you would have done just as I did.’

      “‘It is not the amount, Colonel, that I complain of; it is the principle. In the first place, the government ought to have in the Treasury no more than enough for its legitimate purposes. But that has nothing to do with the question. The power of collecting and disbursing money at pleasure is the most dangerous power that can be entrusted to man, particularly under our system of collecting revenue by tariff, which reaches every man in the country, no matter how poor he may be, and the poorer he is the more he pays in proportion to his means. What is worse, it presses upon him without his knowledge where the weight centers, for there is not a man in the United States who can ever guess how much he pays to the government. So you see, that while you are contributing to relieve one, you are drawing it from thousands who are even worse off than he. If you had the right to give anything, the amount was simply a matter of discretion with you, and you had as much right to give $20,000,000 as $20,000. If you have the right to give to one, you have the right to give to all; and, as the Constitution neither defines charity nor stipulates the amount, you are at liberty to give to anything and everything which you may believe, or profess to believe, is a charity, and to any amount you may think proper. You will very easily perceive what a wide door this would open for fraud and corruption and favoritism, on the one hand, and for robbing the people on the other. No, Colonel, Congress has no right to give charity. Individual members may give as much of their own money as they please, but they have no right to touch a dollar of the public money for that purpose. If twice as many houses had been burned in this county as in Georgetown, neither you nor any other member of Congress would have thought of appropriating a dollar for our relief.

      There are about two hundred and forty members of Congress. If they had shown their sympathy for the suffers by contributing each one week’s pay, it would have made over $13,000. There are plenty of men in and around Washington who could have given $20,000 without depriving themselves of even a luxury of life.. The congressmen chose to keep their own money, which, if reports be true, some of them spend not very creditable; and the people about Washington, no doubt, applauded you for relieving them from the necessity of giving by giving what was not yours to give. The people have delegated to Congress, by the Constitution, the power to do certain things. To do these, it is authorized to collect and pay moneys, and for nothing else. Everything beyond this is usurpation, and a violation of the Constitution.

      “‘So you see, Colonel, you have violated the Constitution in what I consider a vital point. It is a precedent fraught with danger to the country, for when Congress once begins to stretch it’s power beyond the limits of the Constitution, there is no limit to it, and no security for the people. I have no doubt you acted honestly, but that does not make it any better, except as far as you are personally concerned, and you see that I cannot vote for you…’

      “I tell you I felt streaked. I saw if I should have opposition, and this man should go talking, he would set others to talking, and in that district I was a gone fawn-skin. I could not answer him, for the fact is, I was so fully convinced that he was right, I did not want to. But I must satisfy him, and I said to him:

      “Well, my friend, you hit the nail upon the head, when you said I had not sense enough to understand the Constitution. I intended to be guided by it, and thought I had studied it fully, I have heard many speeches in congress about the powers of the Congress, but what you have said here at your plow has got more hard, sound sense in it than all the fine speeches I ever heard. If I had ever taken the view of it that you have, I would have put my head into the fire before I would have given that vote; and if you will forgive me and vote for me again, if I ever vote for another unconstitutional law I wish I may be shot.’

      “He laughingly replied: “Yes Colonel, you have sworn to that once before, but I will trust you again upon one condition. You say that you are convinced that your vote was wrong. Your acknowledgment of it will do more good than beating you for it. If, as you go around the distict, you will tell people about this vote, and that you are satisfied it was wrong, I will not only vote for you, but will do what I can to keep down opposition, and perhaps, I may exert some little influence in that way.’

      “‘If I don’t,’ said I. “I wish I may be shot; and to convince you that I am in earnest in what I say I will come back this way in a week or ten days, and if you will get up a gathering of the people, I will make a speech to them. Get up a barbeque, and I will pay for it.’

      “‘No Colonel, we are not rich people in this section, but we have plenty of provisions to contribute for a barbeque, and some to spare for those who have none.. The push of crops will be over in a few days, and we can then afford a day for a barbeque. This is Thursday; I will see to getting up on Saturday week. Come to my house on Friday, and we will go together, and I promise you a very respectable crowd to see and hear you.’

      “‘Well, I will be here. But one thing more before I say good-by. I must know your name.’

      “‘My name is Bunce.’

      “‘Not Horatio Bunce?’


      “‘Well, Mr. Bunce, I never saw you before though you say you have seen me, but I know you very well. I am glad I have met you, and very proud that I may hope to have you for my friend.’

      “It was one of the luckiest hits of my life that I met him. He mingled but little with the public, but was widely known for a heart brimful and running over with kindness and benevolence, which showed themselves not only in words but in acts. He was the oracle of the whole country around him, and his fame had extended far beyond the circle of his immediate acquaintance. Though I had never met him before, I had heard much of him, and but for this meeting it is very likely I should have had opposition, and had been beaten. One thing is very certain, no man could now stand up in that district under such a vote.

      “At the appointed time I was at his house, having told our conversation to every crowd I had met, and to every man I stayed all night with, and I found that it gave the people an interest and a confidence in me stronger than I had ever seen manifested before.

      “Though I was considerably fatigued when I reached his house, and, under ordinary circumstances, should have gone early to bed, I kept up until midnight, talking about the principles and affairs of government and got more real, true knowledge of them than I had got all my life before.

      “I have known and seen much of him since, for I respect him — no, that is not the word — I reverence and love him more than any living man, and I go to see him two or three times a year; and I will tell you sir, if everyone who professes to be a Christian, lived and acted and enjoyed it as he does, the religion of Christ would take the world by storm.

      “But to return to my story. The next morning we went to the barbecue, and, to my surprise, found about a thousand men there. I met a good many whom I had not known before, and they and my friend introduced me around until I had got pretty well acquainted—at least, they all knew me.

      “In due time notice was given that I would speak to them. They gathered up around a stand that had been erected. I opened my speech by saying: “Fellow-citizens — I present myself before you today feeling like a new man. My eyes have lately been opened to truths which ignorance or prejudice, or both, had heretofore hidden from my view. I feel that I can today offer you the ability to render you more valuable service than I have ever been able to render before. I am here today more for the purpose of acknowledging my error than to seek your votes. That I should make this acknowledgement is due to myself as well as to you. Whether you will vote for me is a matter for your consideration only.’

      “I went on to tell them about the fire and my vote for the appropriation and then told them why I was satisfied it was wrong. I closed by saying:

      “And now, fellow-citizens, it remains only for me to tell you that the most of the speech you have listened to with so much interest was simply a repetition of the arguments by which your neighbor, Mr. Bunce, convinced me of my error.

      “‘It is the best speech I ever made in my life, but he is entitled to the credit for it. And now I hope he is satisfied with his convert and that he will get up here and tell you so.’

      “He came upon the stand and said:

      “‘Fellow-citizens — It affords me great pleasure to comply with the request of Colonel Crockett. I have always considered him a thoroughly honest man, and I am satisfied that he will faithfully perform all that he has promised you today.’

      “He went down, and there went up from that crowd such a shout for Davy Crockett as his name never called forth before.

      “I am not much given to tears, but I was taken with a choking then and felt some big drops rolling down my cheeks. And I tell you now that the remembrance of those few words spoken by such a man, and the honest, hearty shout they produced, is worth more to me than all the reputation I have ever made, or shall ever make, as a member of Congress.

      “Now, sir,” concluded Crockett, “you know why I made that speech yesterday.

      “There is one thing now to which I will call your attention. You remember that I proposed to give a week’s pay. There are in that House many very wealthy men– men who think nothing of spending a week’s pay, or a dozen of them, for a dinner or a wine party when they have something to accomplish by it. Some of those same men made beautiful speeches upon the great debt of gratitude which the country owed the deceased — a debt which could not be paid by money — and the insignificant and worthlessness of money, particularly so insignificant a sum as $10,000, when weighed against the honor of the nation. Yet not one of them responded to my proposition. Money with them is nothing but trash when it is to come out of the people. But it is the one great thing for which most of them are striving, and many of them sacrifice honor, integrity, and justice to obtain it.”

        He was born just a few miles from here. As a matter of fact, my wife and I celebrated our 29th anniversary yesterday and we took the old Jeep out for a spin around the backroads. Wound up at his birthplace.
        When our daughter was looking at colleges, she found that Native Tennesseeans get in-state tuition at Texas state colleges and universities in gratitude for our brave Volunteers. When Colonel Crockett was defeated for re-election due to his opposition to Andy Jackson’s Indian removal, he told his constituents, “You may all go to Hell, and I will go to Texas.”

    A long long time ago a newlywed couple move to Texas to begin their lives together. He had just received his doctorate from a very liberal college. He taught all day at the local college and she moved around freely among the community. Learning how they managed life, how they managed their children, how they managed . .. She came to love the people of Texas. He on the other hand was not experienced with any side of academia other than that of a student. It was his first experience as a professor. “They make things work”. They moved back toward home as soon as they could–two years later they were gone from Texas.

    The gangstalker network in my ao upped the anti this weekend.
    also 2 new rural acclimation groups showed up, added to the 3 been here almost a year.
    they all have Virginia accents, some still running Va. tags, the assholes did a tour for the newbies and stopped out on the road near the house, got out, did question and answer session, then a debrief on the tour, with a pep talk/welcome to the network at the end.

    been watching them earlier.
    when they parked up I hoofed it around thru the woods, set up in a nice spot to listen and get pics.
    pretty amazing what i listened to.
    these are American’s, or rather amerikan’s.
    the inherent hate and sense of destiny they are our rulers is always something to wrap the ol’ noodle around even when its first hand direct knowledge.

    the last few weeks the gangstalkers who been regulars for months working our area stepped up their disruption activity.
    sometimes dozens of vehicles with wide open pipes, going WOT by peoples homes, three nights in a row one truck dragging a carhauler they had laid 4×8 pieces of sheetmetal in, driving fast over these one lane rough dirt goat paths, with open pipes, amazingly loud, it wakes the dead at 2 am, along with highly aggressive cruising up and down what roads we have here, heaving large bags of trash out of fast moving vehicles so it produces a wide spread pattern as they bust open, staging fake tailgate parties across from folks homes all hours of the night, running nigger rap with the deep base boom boom dialed to the max, creating all sorts of noise, slamming vehicle doors and tail gates, bats and shovels banging pieces of sheetmetal, steel drums, tooting horns, etc.

    it is pretty amazing watching them going at it.
    you have to personally see it with your eyes to believe it, to understand there are adult grown looking people doing this stupid shit.
    amazing there is so much reckless hate.

    but knowing it really is real and this network exists, that its everywhere, behind all this crazy shit going on, is a great boon to coming to rational logical terms with it and not falling for the traps they are created for to fuck with us and fuck with our heads so we are easily destroyed.

    we see it as techniques employed to stress out all us native good folks living here, disrupt order and peace, fuck with serenity of place and community, cause and create worry, fear and unsettling sense of loss of stability and security.

    same head fucking the whole annteefah/blm gangstalker bullshit is for in the cities, same fear mongering, the same yellow media weaponizing everything.
    Weaponizing Fear.
    Get people to take council from their fears, makes them suckers, easier to manipulate and control.

    these gangstalkers operating around our area are so blatantly patently obvious.
    none of them are from around here, belong here, have family or friends and nobody local knows who they are.
    they truly stick out.

    our county is about 3/4 size of Rhode Island, with a tad over 2000 families living in it.
    its about as rural east of the mississipi as can be found, we have only 4 Deputy Sheriff’s for the entire county, they have told us they are helpless to stop this, they bust the fuckers, within an hour they are walking out the front door giving them the finger and laughing.
    they went to lengths to let many of us know, they know all of us as good people, how they never have to worry about us and have appreciated us for it, our decent way of life, going on to tell us, it’s time we must take care of things ourselves.

    another aspect of raising the anti, right out of the marxist terrorist handbook, its right on cue in the politicization of everything, it getting near about time for the next stage of “protracted struggle.”

    this change in strat-tac points to 2nd stage early phase two, (3 phases in each of the 3 stages), ie, increasing the aggressive physical activity, no targeting individuals for direct action, ( targeted kill hits), lots of ramped up disruptive and disturbing action all hours, typically during dark.

    the intent at this stage, once these teams have acclimated to the rural conditions, this draws out the white supremacists reactionaries and other white “fascists”, providing further intell of the local inhabitants, and for constructing direct action targeting lists.

    It is only a matter of timing these blacbloc operations would follow the handbook involving rural operations, they have to control the rural areas at some point, step up the rural direct action, now, as the metro and shit-holes are mostly under direct network control.

    neo-bolshevik direct action.
    you can just see the obots directing this from on high.

    The first direct action of these new rural acclimation groups once they settle in, going by the handbook, is job one, determining who are the “extremist white supremacists” in the community, in their strategy, rank as enemy number one on the targeting list, for further direct action operations, and determining the break down in patriarchal and agrarian order, associations, who attends which local parish, if any who is organized resistance and or gauging threat levels, natural community leaders, etc.

      So they’re trying to get a rise out of you. Figure out how they are being predictable. I’ll bet there’s a rural road they go down thatis a tunnel, tree-lined. Figure out a plan to blockade them in, so they have to abandon their vehicles and walk out. Does every rural road have cell coverage? Your folks are going to have to hatch a plan, be minutemen, and do it all incognito so they can’t figure out who you are. And it will escalate from there, but as you noticed it is escalating already. Retreating to Helm’s Deep is not an option.

    At some point, maybe some tiny little point, something will snap, then domino, then expand, and blow.
