Gang Stalked by Bad Whistlers at Walmart?

This is a little silly, but here goes:

I went to Walmart yesterday evening to look for ammo even though it was a fool's errand.  Needless to say the shelves were almost empty.  The only ammo there was some shotgun ammo and some obscure .22 variant, maybe Win Mag or something else I couldn't use.  But there was an unattended cart with two open cases of shotgun ammo just sitting there.  Weird. (shrug)  So I went kind of poking around the rest of the store and at least three different men started whistling loudly and badly near me, these stupid little goofy tunes.

For gang stalking (if it was) it was sort of a half hearted attempt.  All it did was inspire me to whistle too. 

I started whistling this tune that surprised me.  When a tune just pops into my head I pay attention, because it sometimes gives me a clue from my subconscious.  It was "Se tu m'ami" (Pergolesi). That song is sort of sarcastic and spunky.  It's a sort of "voice lesson" song they assign to teenage girls but the lyrics are something you can have fun with, if you understand the Italian.

As Hagbard Celine says in "The Illuminatus Trilogy", never whistle while you're pissing...


Here's a translation.
English:
If thou lov'st me, and sighest ever But for me, O gentle swain,
Sweet I find thy loving favour, Pitiful I feel thy pain.
Should'st thou think tho' that demurely I on thee alone may smile,
simple shepherd, thou art surely prone thy senses to beguile,

As a fair red rose, a lover Fain might Sylvia choose today,
haply if he thorns discover, 'tis tomorrow thrown away.
All men say of maiden folly finds no favor in mine eyes,
nor because I love the lily shall I other flow'rs despise.

Adam Lanza's Life Was Taken With an Automatic Weapon!

HEY:  Read this retraction first http://pennypincherpersonalfinance.blogspot.com/2013/04/retraction-and-more-intrigue-in-sandy.html I was wrong about 10mm Glocks being automatic.  I'll leave the original post here but cross it out.

I dunno if you’ve noticed this, but both in the CT police report about the Sandy Hook shooting and in the “shocking” news put out yesterday about the “huge” arsenal (gimme a break) at Mrs. Lanza's house, they mention that Lanza had a 10mm Glock. I wondered if it was the Glock or the 9mm Sig P226 he also had that killed him in the end. It was the Glock, as it turns out. Actually they say it was a Glock in the police report but not in the news about searching Mrs. Lanza's house, they left out the make of the gun this time and just said that he'd taken his own life with a 10mm pistol.

This is very significant. Because there are no 10mm Glocks sold in the US to civilians, being that they are all FULLY AUTOMATIC. There are three models, the smallest having a 6 round magazine. I can’t see the utility in a fully auto weapon with only a 6 round mag, but whatever, it’s listed as automatic. Anyway, I saw on the Glock website that the 10mm ones are all autos, and I perused a Glock catalog at the range I was at this past weekend, it did not include any of the 10mm models, probably because they aren’t sold here in the US. And this catalog was also for LE, so it would follow LE can’t get them either, only maybe feds. So one of two things:

  • Lanza or his mother obtained a pistol that it was illegal to import into the US, in one of the most gun controlled states – proving that gun control doesn’t work, OR

  • The pistol did not in fact belong to either of the Lanzas, but instead possibly to a secret agent man, who left it at the scene for reasons unknown. Either a fed or a foreign one. Because probably those are the only people legally allowed to get an automatic, foreign made, imported 10mm Glock.

(Or a mobster perhaps could have one illegally, if there's an underworld connection.)

The simplest explanation would be that the pistol was obtained on the black market by Mrs. Lanza.

To entertain the other idea, why a secret agent man or hired mob assassin would bring an illegal, fully automatic weapon to a false flag hit designed to demonize semi-automatic legally owned guns, and then leave it behind certainly clouds the issue. (But only if my observation gets repeated. It seems the mainstream press is taking pains to hide the fact that it was an automatic weapon. Therefore this little detail wasn't part of the plan, if there was a plan.)

Perhaps, if it was a setup, this whole thing was so slapdashedly put together that Mr. Secret Agent Man/Mob Assassin Guy brought the wrong Glock with him that day? Or is this another possible deliberate fuckup like when they left all the Photoshop footprints on the birth certificate?

Then one wonders about fingerprints that might be on the Glock, or the existence/absence of discarded gloves to go with Secret Agent Man. The men caught on camera running in the woods, if it was a hit, are probably not gonna tell.

Useless Men

"In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a Congress."
-President John Adams

Just saw this pithy quote. Gonna put it in the pithy quote section...

The Outburst I Inspired

Tonight I got excited at a political meeting where the discussion turned to all that ammo and armament the DHS is buying, and in response to someone telling me I could get on a government list, I quoted Ben Franklin's quote about hanging together or separately, and then this elderly gentleman jumped up and hollered "Give me Liberty or give me death!"

It was a little embarrassing.  I thought he was mocking me at first, but actually no.  I actually inspired someone to stand up and holler the famous Patrick Henry quote. 

I'm sure I'm on a dozen government lists already.  I hope I get correctly categorized as someone who likes the Constitution and liberty. I'd hate them to get that wrong because posterity is important. For those who prefer security to liberty, may posterity forget them and may their chains rest lightly upon them.

OK, now I'm just quoting the Founding Fathers left and right.  It's late.  In more ways than one.

Boris Berezovsky, RIP by Justin Raimondo -- Antiwar.com

Boris Berezovsky, RIP by Justin Raimondo -- Antiwar.com

See above link for article.

This oligarch was the Russian equivalent of, say, 9-11 truthers crossed with Orly Taitz, only mobbed up and with a fortune of dubious origin.  He was the money behind Litvenenko (that guy who died of polonium poisoning).  Berezovsky was recently found dead in his bathroom, with the door locked from the inside. His fortune, according to his lawyer, was just about used up, and he was facing various legal problems.

The Litvenenko's-death hearings had just been delayed from May to October. MI6, the British intelligence service, is trying to keep a lid on them. (probably something embarrassing to GB)

The article speculates that Litvenenko might have been involved in nuclear smuggling and that it was entirely possible that Berezovsky had even been blackmailing him since he had also blackmailed other Russian expats.  If the Brits had been involved somehow in Litvenenko's alleged nuclear smuggling, I can see why they would not want the world to know.

(Lyndon LaRouche take note!  Here is another brick for your wall of British conspiracies!)

Delaying the hearing won't stop the truth from eventually coming out, unless, of course, we have a collapse of society or something in the meantime and they use the ensuing confusion to wipe out the evidence...

The Sultan of Swing Votes?

http://www.boilingfrogspost.com/2013/03/18/the-mysterious-case-of-the-sulu-sultan/

Some Filipino militia types have created a ruckus in Malaysia before an election that's coming up, they claim to be the army of a self-styled "Sultan of Sulu", an elderly man in Manila claiming a title to a long defunct sultanate that used to control that area, Sabah.

Interesting reading.  Since there's an election coming up, some people think this guy's private army of 235 men was let in by the opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim.

If that's the case then he's really the sultan of swing.... votes?

New York Sets Up Gun Snitch Hotline

http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2013/03/new-york-state-sets-up-gun-snitch-line/
$500 for turning in someone with an "illegal" gun.

time to JAM THE LINE!

The hotline is a stupid idea because it'll be used for all kinds of vindictive be-ess whether it be domestic (i.e. custody disputes) or business competitors, and I don't think the cops are exempted yet (in their haste to pass this law New York legislators forgot to exempt the police) which means someone could snitch on the cops too.

Also, nobody likes a snitch. Yeah, someone might make $500 for snitching but they'll probably get the crap beat out of them later (or worse) by some irate person, too.  And then someone will have a list of all the snitches, so it could come to light later even if the snitch gets away with it in the short run.

DON'T SNITCH.  Just jam the line.


Get Around Internet Surveillance Cuban Style

http://www.cryptogon.com/?p=34152

Avoid internet surveillance by not using the internet.  Use SD cards and thumb drives and just pass them to the people you want to communicate with. You can even encrypt them.  A micro SD card is about the size of a fingernail so you can hide it pretty easily just about anywhere on your person.  Or you could tape it to the bottom of a barroom table or something like that, and have someone else pick it up later.  I've also seen where people cement a thumb drive into a crack in the side of a building, with the plug sticking out.  While sidling up to the side of a building in an alley with your laptop might look odd, I'm sure you can think of more discreet ways to do it.

The Cubans don't limit themselves to private communications with this.  They have thumb-drive zines that they pass around at bus stops and street corners.

Tell those censors and spies to put that in their pork sandwich and chew on it!

Speaking of censors, it looks like they're going to force Jay Leno into retirement and replace him with Jimmy Fallon.  Leno is the only comedian left making fun of Obama.

Yep.

San Francisco Police Lying about the Law to Shopkeeps

http://www.dnalounge.com/backstage/log/2013/03/20.html

Although local business fought against the demand of the police that the installation of surveillance cameras be a condition of the permit to do business (unconstitutional by the way), and the shopkeeps won, police are apparently now going around lying and telling shopkeeps anyway that it's the law that they have to put up surveillance cameras.

It seems from the comment of one of the police that this kind of unwarranted surveillance is creeping into other cities.  Or maybe that was part of the snow job.  Are you a shopkeep who has had to put up with this kind of unconstitutional intrusion into your shop?  Please comment if so.

Correction: Whoops - it might be bar owners this is about. You'd think most shopkeeps would want to have a camera to deter shoplifting.  But bars, not so much. This makes it worse actually.

CT Police List Weapons Found with Adam Lanza at Sandy Hook Shooting - One is Automatic

HEY!  First read this retraction http://pennypincherpersonalfinance.blogspot.com/2013/04/retraction-and-more-intrigue-in-sandy.html
I was mistaken about 10mm Glocks being automatic.  Other than that this is a true verbatim reprint of the cops' statement - just my comments were wrong.  I'll cross out the wrong part.

http://www.ct.gov/despp/cwp/view.asp?A=4226&Q=517284

Here is what it says

** UPDATE **


STATE POLICE IDENTIFY WEAPONS USED IN SANDY HOOK INVESTIGATION;

INVESTIGATION CONTINUES

   In previous press conferences, the Connecticut State Police clearly identified all of the weapons seized from the crime scene at Sandy Hook Elementary School. 

   To eliminate any confusion or misinformation, we will again describe and identify the weapons seized at the school crime scene.

Seized inside the school:
#1. Bushmaster .223 caliber-- model XM15-E2S rifle with high capacity 30 round magazine

#2. Glock 10 mm handgun

#3. Sig-Sauer P226   9mm handgun

Seized from suspect’s car in parking lot:
#4. Izhmash Canta-12   12 gauge Shotgun    (seized from car in parking lot)

   The shooter used the Bushmaster .223 to murder 20 children and six adults inside the school; he used a handgun to take his own life inside the school. No other weapons were used in this crime. This case remains under investigation.
Lt. J. Paul Vance
Now, let's look at this.
They say the Bushmaster was found with "high capacity 30 round magazine"
First, they say magazine not magazines.  Was this an omission in an official police document, or was there only one magazine?  He could not have shot all those rounds in 5 minutes without having multiple magazines.  I assume he must have had more than one, or someone else did some or all of the shooting.
 Second, AR magazines that hold 30 rounds are STANDARD for that weapons platform and naming the number of rounds is redundant and calling them "high capacity" simply the political language of the gun-grabbers who repeat these mantras ad nauseam.  But like I said, he had to have had multiple magazines.  
 The only pistols made by GLOCK in 10mm are fully automatic pistols.  There are 3 models. They have a 6, a 10 or a 15 round magazine depending on the size of the model.   Because it's fully automatic, and Connecticut had some of the most stringent gun control laws in the country, it's not likely this pistol was legally acquired, or it did not belong to the Lanzas, YET NOBODY IS SAYING ANYTHING ABOUT THIS. If Lanza was framed, could an agent (who being some kind of federal agent and legally able to acquire such a weapon for duty) have left this weapon behind?  Which pistol killed Lanza?
 The Sig Sauer P226 is just a semiautomatic pistol that comes in a lot of calibers. Nothing special about this, it's a commonly available and popular pistol.
 Finally, it's official that the weapon in the trunk was a shotgun, which is borne out by the video footage. 
The question is, is any of this police document a lie? In particular the stuff about the Bushmaster, since it seems tailor-made for the current narrative?

The FDIC Will Not Protect You From Cyprus Style Bank Account Raid

http://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?post=218944

The theft of money out of everyone's accounts in Cyprus was called a TAX.
The FDIC does not insure against the levying of taxes.
The Cypriots had a similar insurance on their accounts but it did them no good.

Just sayin'.  The FDIC is NOT going to protect you when they try this s**t here.

GET YOUR MONEY OUT!
GET I T OUT, GET IT OUT, GET IT OUT!
While you still can.

Of course checking accounts are convenient.  Leave only the bare minimum you need to pay the next bill.  Just keep spoon feeding it the next bill's worth right before you have to pay it.  Or pay the bills with money orders. 

CASH your paychecks.  Don't deposit them.

GET OUT!

And read my posts with tags of hiding money and hiding places.

Will Banksters Dip Into American Bank Accounts Too?

http://www.activistpost.com/2013/03/after-banksters-steal-money-from-bank.html

They're about to do it in Cyprus, if their parliament allows it.  The banksters assert the two major banks in Cyprus are about to collapse and they want to take up to 10% of depositors' money out of their bank accounts to bail them out.  They claim there will be mass civil unrest if the parliament allows the collapse of the banks by not letting them steal out of everyone's bank account.

The US is in WORSE financial condition than Cyprus - worse debt to income ratio, etc.  The only thing we've got going for us is the dollar is the world's reserve currency.  But maybe not for long, given that other nations have been trying to find a way around the dollar for the last 5 or 6 years.

I would say that Cyprus faces mass civil unrest either way.  Facing a shakedown of 10% or the possible loss of 100% of your money.  How would you like to face that choice?

Given that this is probably a "beta test" as the article says, we may expect them to try it in other countries if they succeed.  Probably the rest of Europe first, then the US.  And that progression may not be as slow as you might think.  There may be a domino effect.

I say since this ultimatum is not here in the US yet, get your money out now, and with it buy gold, silver, fuel, guns, ammo, water filters and food, since those things don't lose their value and you'll need them anyway; and when they come with their hands out LET THEM FAIL.

It is not our responsibility to pay for someone else's gambling sprees and high living.

Pickled Sunchokes

Today I planted potatoes in my big garden, and out of about 6 square feet of another smaller garden plot I dug up about 1.5 gallons of sunchokes in preparation for planting peas - I'm hoping the peas will be done by the time the sunchokes come back.  You can never really get rid of sunchokes once you have them - they're really invasive.  But on the bright side, they make edible tubers, and they're a bit stealth-garden, as most people would not recognize them as a food plant.

The best time to harvest sunchoke tubers is the end of winter.  It has to do with an indigestible starch called inulin that gets converted to fructose when the tubers get frozen all winter.  The inulin never quite goes all the way away, though.  And it makes you fart.

I understand that pickling takes away the inulin fartiness.  (some people call them Jerusalem fartichokes, and with good reason).  I'm hoping this is correct.  Also by pickling them I can take my time eating them.  I can't even imagine trying to eat 1.5 gallons of fresh Jerusalem fartichokes before they go bad.  I wouldn't need a jet-pack!

Here's the recipe I found to make 3 quarts of sunchoke pickles.  (I had to double it for me but I put it here for 3 quarts).  This is a turmeric, hot and sweet recipe.

Get 3 qts. of sunchokes.  Clean and slice your sunchokes 1/2" thick.  You can put some lemon juice on them to deter discoloration - I didn't bother, and they didn't discolor.

Soak them in brine which is 4 cups water to 1/4 cup pickling or kosher salt, along with 1 tbsp turmeric, for 8 to 12 hours.

Then drain them and prepare a hot and sweet pickling vinegar, this should have 2 tablespoons mustard seed, 3 bay leaves, hot peppers to taste, 1 more tbsp turmeric, and 3 cloves.  And 1 to 2 cups sugar, to 4 cups vinegar.  It depends how sweet you want them.  Bring this to a boil and then cool it down.  The recipe assumes you will be using quart jars.  I guess you could break the cloves and bay leaves, or use clove powder and bay leaf flakes, if you want to make pints.  I think I might also add a quarter onion per 3 quarts, just for extra kick - I have a half an onion left over from yesterday in the fridge and this is a good chance to use it up.  It wasn't in the recipe, but I don't care. 

(I also saw another recipe that called for bell peppers to be pickled with the sunchokes.  They would not be in season at the same time as the sunchokes, but I suppose that's what supermarkets are for. I would be more inclined to pickle carrots and sunchokes together, that sounds like it would go together better)

Prepare a hot water bath and clean jars as per usual canning procedure, fill the jars with sunchokes to 1/4 inch from the top, pour in the vinegar mix, and can them for 20 minutes.  You can skip the water bath if you want to make fridge pickles.

Wait a week for it to pickle fully before eating them.

I'll let you know how they turn out.

This is really funny.

I was at one time a vegetarian because I thought it was healthy. But then I came to my senses.  I just don't eat as much meat as most Americans.  Anyway this is just a silly video. LOL

Most Economic Moderates Have Left Obama Admin

http://www.aei.org/article/health/healthcare-reform/ppaca/whos-in-charge-of-implementing-obamacare-and-why-it-matters/

This article is about the economic moderates leaving the Obama administration for the private sector after getting Obamacare passed, leaving the ultra-left-wing "policy wonks" in charge of the shop.  There is one woman in particular who will be in charge of implementing Obamacare, and she is a career ultra-lib:  Jeanne Lambrew.

Don't expect the US to ease into Obamacare, with this woman in charge they're probably going to try and ram it down our throats as quickly as possible, and not soften any of the stuff that will make it hurt.  Our only hope lies in nullification, or at least the refusals of states to implement an exchange.

More important, though, the big picture is that the economic moderates have jumped ship, leaving the socialist nutbags.  This will undoubtedly hasten the economic demise of the US because nobody is left in there to curb their enthusiasm.

Socialism only works until you run out of other people's money, and all these things they've been doing are driving the investor class away.  Literally away in many cases: there is a spike in people renouncing their US citizenship.  Since getting a different citizenship takes time, I would assume these are mostly people who were already abroad, but people have had ample time since 2008 to get in a position to do that.  Some countries make you wait only 3 or 5 years to apply if you marry a native, and then there's often also a resident status available for retired people who bring their money with them. 

We are quickly going to run out of money.  Regardless of how much funny money Bernanke prints.  Actually the more he does that the worse it gets.  Monetizing national debt only works up to a point and then it all pops.  Just ask the Germans about the Weimar Republic and how that worked out.

Spied on By The Very Dust?

I just saw this comment on ZeroHedge under this article
So, maybe even the dust can spy on us.  Is that what the Chemtrails are for? (hmm...)
Also, Morgellons could be these things gone wild - little fiber nanomachines with antennae etc. reproducing like cancer.
All that RF can't be good for you.

Could an EMP be the answer for the ubiquitous spying?  Would it knock out the tiny radios?  But it seems like whacking a mosquito infestation with a nuke.  I would hate to think the only way to be free is to knock this joint back to the stone age.  And that won't really make anyone free for long, human nature being what it is.

How many of these things can fit on the head of a pin anyway?
Drones ... you know ... like, for everybody ...
Well get this, this is an interesting little twist as now even your cloths, carpets or the dust bunnies under your desk may have electronic ears.
http://www.physics.berkeley.edu/research/zettl/projects/nanoradio/radio....
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_nanotube
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_nanotube_springs
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potential_applications_of_carbon_nanotubes
These molecular scale integrated microphone, transceivers and antennas are operating right now and they even supply their own DC battery power using the same technology. And they're literally invisible, even to a high power optical microscope. They're much too small to be seen by anything but an electron-tunnelling microscope (but their presence may be detectable with a very narrow band scanner). But what really makes these things so insidious is that they're literally the most sensitive vibrational and audio sensors ever created. They're also super-clean amplifiers and their molecular batteries are ten times more energy dense than any other known battery technology. Plus they use tiny amounts of power to create a weak but exceptionally clean narrow discrete signal, that can be easily captured and reamplified by a whole network of identical nanotube radio transceivers, nearby.
i.e. you can cover an entire major city, or even a whole country with a thin dispersed layer of these invisible receivers (or even an enemy's entire country) and no one would even know they were there. But they would work as a contiguous hidden radio network, operating at the speed of light, and would effectively connect up with all the receivers in a city, or in a country. Getting the picture?
Thus you could seed a target's person without them knowing about it with hundreds of these molecular radios, designed to chemically bind to hair folicles, cloths, skin etc, and go with them everywhere for several months, and listen to absolutely everything that happens, with the highest quality sound reproduction. It's also possible to make super-sensitive high-definition camera's using this same technology.
Who needs 1984-esque Telescreens to keep track of people, or spy on them then? Soon you won't even see cameras or their UHF antennas on the street anymore, as the existing security cameras will literally disappear from the street-scapes, but they sure won't be gone--they'll be literally everywhere, and anywhere, all the time.

Did Dyncorp help banksters steal money from HUD?

http://www.whereisthemoney.org/S00223_collateral.htm

This page describes a frivolous lawsuit against a woman named Catherine Austin Fitts who was CEO of a government contractor Hamilton Securities that made the process for HUD to sell the homes it had got back in foreclosure more efficient, with a database that actually worked.  The side effect of this was that it increased the cost for a big bank like Goldman Sachs to buy HUD loans by a factor of about 18.

She got sued under a frivolous qui tam suit (The "whistleblower" plaintiff gets a cut).  The plaintiff was John Ervin of Ervin Associates, a mortgage servicer for HUD.  Hamilton's hard drives were immediately destroyed by the courts, thus ruining their business and the qui tam suit that took 8 years to reach a courtroom is now down to just some technicalities instead of the charges it started with.  Because it was frivolous.

Unfortunately for Fitts the judge Stanley Sporkin used to be the lead lawyer for the CIA.  He also violated the whistleblower statute several times during the case by illegally extending the 60 day seal on the plaintiff's case.

You think there might be a conflict of interest here?  How does the CIA figure in?  Well read below.

After taking the contract from Hamilton HUD gave the contract to Computer Sciences Corporation, which is the new parent company of Dyncorp, the paramilitary contractor with its fingers also in airplane maintenance, laundry service for our soldiers overseas, cocaine crop spraying south of the border, Child Protective Services (specifically being the hired thugs who come to people's house in the US and take their children away), flu vaccine research, and who has also been accused on several occasions of child sex trafficking overseas.

Dyncorp is basically a privatized part of the military, with less oversight because it's private.  You think it might have CIA connections?  Nah, that's just conjecture on my part.  And their flu research is just a fluke, too.  Wanna buy a bridge?

Dyncorp ported the data over without a parallel (very stupid to do and nothing a prudent computer contractor would dream of), and this resulted in billions of dollars in transactions records being lost.  Incompetent geeks, or a convenient cover-up of theft?  And here is the result:

It is significant in our view that Dyncorp (now part of Computer Sciences Corporation - CSC, NYSE), which is a prime contractor for the Justice Department running its asset forfeiture program, is a also a contractor for HUD running computer systems. In 1996, Dyncorp was paid $60 million and generated $450 million in asset forfeiture revenues. Hamilton was paid $10 million and generated $2.2 billion in savings for HUD.
It is difficult to avoid the conclusion that the cash generating activities associated with enforcement are more desirable to the managers of the system because they are easier to manipulate than running the system for a positive return to the taxpayer.

Underground History of American Education - Gatto

http://www.johntaylorgatto.com/chapters/index.htm
Here is the book that you can read online.  Reminds me a lot of Charlotte Iserbyt's book, too, "The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America".

Without getting too autobiographical, it rang a lot of bells.


I have seen some of the newer elementary school curricula lately. It was a math problem where after solving the problem the kid was asked to draw it and make a story about it.  This for a simple math problem.  Sometimes these exercises are politically tinged.  (Mm, mm, mm.)

If your kid is being bullied or is really bored in school, or if the curriculum is BS, you need to get them out of there and home school. For the love of God.  Or at least of your own children.

Around or Through? Or Neither?

There are two obvious ways out of this upcoming ugliness in my opinion: around and through.  Around would involve scooting out of the country in order to avoid the festivities.  But then as an Ugly American abroad you might still not be safe, and might even get sent back as a charity case if the dollar collapses, leaving you holding the bag.  Or the conflict could spread to where you went - the dollar is that big.  Through involves staying here for the festivities, in whatever capacity, and either laying low or participating in some way, whether willingly or not.  That could get you dead.  But then we all die one day.

I think hoping it won't "get sporty" out there when the house of cards comes down is wishful thinking.  I just want to preserve our liberty and help people not to starve - to be self sufficient instead of being slaves.  To think for themselves.  To be able to defend themselves. Hopefully working to keep people together instead of turning into so many angry bees.  Seems like a no-brainer to me.  But a slave master trying to put down a slave uprising and set a "new normal" of control might disagree with me. I say PLPLPLPLTTTHT! to that.  Up freedom!

I've been on both sides of the aisle in my life. Both parties think the other party is out to enslave them. It's all true.  The top ones  in both parties are trying to enslave everyone and put the blame the other party.  Most of this party politics is just theater.  They meet in secret to decide what to do with the world then they come out and pretend to hate each other.  They don't give a fig about the people.  Maybe they do actually hate each other, but again we're just pawns on the Grand Chessboard to them.

So what is the third way?

Knock over the chessboard in your mind - the world is not two dimensional   You do not need to stay in that square nor do you need the board.  That game is just a construct.  You are not really a pawn.  I think the only way out of tyranny, whether you go around or through or whatever, is to realize your own power to make things better, think outside the chessboard box, and get away from the game table.

About those 2717 Tanks - I think they're real

http://modernsurvivalblog.com/government-gone-wild/latest-homeland-security-vehicle-street-sweeper/

Here appears to be the original article on the 2700 some odd tanks.  Actually armored trucks with gun ports.
Sounds like it's real to me.  Someone also commented below it about living where they are retrofitting them.
It seems like they got them second hand from DoD. That is probably why they didn't appear on the bizopps site.

Okaaaaay, so I hope they're not going to target bloggers!  Probably these are supposed to be for riots, but you never know.  If things fall apart far enough there's no saying what would happen.  Much saber rattling on both sides.  Much arming selves on both the part of the .gov and the people

When the dollar crashes everyone will be blaming the other guy.  But the problem will still remain, how are you going to survive it?  People could round up and punish those they think are responsible but the bill remains to be paid, either in gold, land or blood.  I think the gold is gone, because of all the tungsten they keep finding and other nations wanting to audit their gold.

Mark Kelly (Gabby Giffords' husband) Caught Buying Guns, Makes up Cockamamie Story

http://www.examiner.com/article/mark-kelly-s-story-on-ar-15-purchase-prompts-skeptical-open-letter

This guy who used his Congresswoman wife's shooting to come out as anti-gun and get a lot of publicity, just bought a .45 and an AR-15, was called out by someone who noticed, and now claims he did that so he could give them to police.  Oh, and he said he had planned to sell them over state lines.  Whoops!

I think that state-line law is stupid, but if he's going to make up some cockamamie story to cover his a$$ so he doesn't lose face, he ought to at least know not to say he was going to commit a crime.

Liberal Elite Dumba$$ of the week.  They probably won't charge him, just like that doofus in DC who went on TV with a 30-round AR magazine.  That is because he is in the privileged class. 

Privilege = private law in Latin.  aka those above the law

NRA Denies NBCNews.com Claim


I just got into my email after a long day and found this from the NRA.  Looks like NBC News was lying through its teeth.  And people STILL think it's not real news unless it comes from the MSM:

An article appearing today on NBCNews.com is falsely reporting that NRA will not oppose legislation being negotiated in the U.S. Senate that would mandate background checks for all gun purchasers.

The story posted on NBCNews.com alleges that NRA will not oppose expanding the background check system to include all private firearm sales, "provided the legislation does not require private gun sellers to maintain records of the checks". This statement is completely untrue. The NRA opposes criminalizing private firearms transfers between law-abiding individuals, and therefore opposes an expansion of the background check system.

The NRA supports meaningful efforts to address the problems of violent crime and mass violence in America, through swift and certain prosecution of violent criminals; securing our schools; and fixing our broken mental health system.

A Pinch of Salt for the 2700 Tanks

http://brittius.com/2013/03/04/erroneous-reports/

There is a story going around that DHS just bought 2700 tanks. (I think one report said it was 2717).
This guy Brittius says the 2700 tanks might only be a rumor.  He also says the number of rounds purchased might be inflated.  Likens it to rumors about Area 51, where the gov just smiles and doesn't say anything to confirm or deny. 

The rumor of 2700 tanks, if not true, what would it accomplish to keep people guessing?  Do you remember after the Soviet Union fell, and we discovered they had been puffing up their military to look bigger than it was?  Why do frogs puff themselves up?  Why do cats arch up and get fluffy when threatened?  It's a trick to scare your opponents.

Okay, well maybe.  Someone did find evidence of 2700 chassis being bought last year.  Is a chassis a tank?

Even if it's all a rumor, which maybe this Brittius guy is spreading a counter-rumor, I saw with my own eyes other evidence of a beef-up in domestic armament: the ad a year or two ago for domestic military prison camp personnel and suppliers, on the bizopps site, before it was taken down.  Plus the NDAA is real, as is the Patriot Act, Rex 84 (that was Reagan), the Real ID Act of 2005, the EO Obama signed last year having to do with confiscating farmland crops and farm equipment in an emergency and putting umpteen federal agencies into meddling in the countryside, and Dianne Feinstein's magazine capacity/"assault weapon" bill, which is only one of dozens of gun-control bills we have to play whack a mole with. There IS something up. 

That is a whole helluva lot of tanks though, and if it's true then hmmm.  Who do they intend to use them on?

Sooooo, do your own verification (I will be looking for evidence of this tank order outside of the conspirasphere) and keep your powder dry.  And all you militant types please don't go off and do something stupid.  It would be good to remember the words of Captain John Parker on Lexington Green:

"Stand your ground. Don't fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war let it begin here"

Mexico Wants A Gold Audit Too

I was moderating my comments and found this, then remembered I'd sent the comment myself as a quick way to remind myself to post this later.  I wondered why this pesky commenter had put a totally unrelated comment under an article about something else. LOL! it was me! 

The upshot of it is, Mexico wants to inspect its gold reserves at the Bank of England.  This is after the Queen of England and the German government demanded to do the same thing.  Seems like nobody trusts the gold holders anymore.  Trust in central banks is at an all time low.

Here's a quote from the article.

Global Financial Intelligence and the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee report that the actions of the Mexican Government Audit Office are the result of a long campaign lead by Guillermo Barba, a Mexican civil activist and investigative journalist. The Government Audit Office has concluded that 95% of the gold reserves of the Bank of Mexico are stored abroad and 99% of this gold is stored with the Bank of England. However, the Mexican central bank has never inspected the gold it bought, has not performed purity tests on it and doesn’t even have a list of all the gold bars stored in London. In their current state, Mexico’s gold reserves are no more than “paper gold” in the meaning that the Bank of Mexico doesn’t have any physical gold, but mere “claims” on a certain amount of gold supposedly held by the Bank of England. Bill Gross, the Chief Investment Officer of PIMCO (the world’s largest bond fund) has recently said that “Central banks distrust each other”. The pending audit of the Mexican gold reserves is not a singular case of actions that show a high level of mutual distrust among central banks. The latest move of the Bundesbank, which demanded the repatriation of its gold holding from Bank of New York, Bank of England and Banque de France, is another sign of distrust in the world’s financial system. It is quite probable that after the audit, Mexico will decide to repatriate its gold holdings, possibly prompting other countries to follow suit.
Here's the article. RTWT.

Another Bunch of Free Survival How-To Links

http://www.preppers.info/Free_Downloads.html#Skills

h/t: Someone with a comment below an unrelated article at www.shtfplan.com posted this. 

Among many others, there's a nice article on how to salt fish, one on how to make a bike powered grain mill (you need a metal shop), and one on how to pound grain to grind it if you don't have a mill.

That one is interesting:  Get a tall tin can, and 3 metal pipes (30" black pipe is good, they sell it in that length).  Duct tape the pipes together in a bundle.  Put 1/4" of grain in the can, put it on the ground, and pound it up and down with the end of the pipes.  You might want to pad the top of the pipes to make a handle.  Then you need a window screen, and you filter the ground grain thru it, and return whatever is too big to your can and continue.  With oats and other thick skinned grain, it's good to get it wet first - it helps get the hull off in bigger pieces, which will stay in the screen.

There are also a bunch of articles on how to clean water so you can drink it.

Federal Agents Went Shooting with David Koresh 9 Days Before Waco Siege

If David Koresh was such a threat, why did Federal agents trust him enough to go plinking with him just 9 days before the siege?  And Koresh even supplied the ammo.

Click on the picture for enlargement.  I had linked to the original but Hardy's website keeps going offline, so this time I got a copy and uploaded it here myself.  I hope this keeps it online.  I suggest you save it to your hard drive and then re-post it wherever, maybe like on Scribd, so that the They who are attacking Hardy, whoever They are, have to play whack a mole and try harder to make it go away.  To Hardy Law: I hope this is okay and I do appreciate your work, thank you for working to disinfect the government coverups with sunlight.  Anyway this should take some load off your server for me not to just link to it for a picture.

Lentil Soup With Only 6 Minutes Cooking Time

This recipe takes 4 hours, but you only have to spend fuel cooking it for 6 minutes total and the rest of the time you can leave it alone and forget it. You will need an insulated wide mouth Thermos, and a small sauce pan.

Serves 1 or 2 depending on the size of your Thermos or how much you put in it.

Take about 1/3 lentils and 2/3 water by volume, maybe a bit more lentils per water, whatever will fit in your Thermos and have a little room left over, and bring them to a boil for a minute in a small sauce pan. 

(Add to taste at this stage: tomatoes, celery seed, hot pepper, paprika, parsley, onion powder, salt, pepper etc.  Whatever you want to jazz it up.  Don't add meat yet.)

Pour this into the Thermos and put the lid on.  Wait about 4 hours.  You could also just stick the sauce pan into an insulated box, but the Thermos makes it portable.

Put the lentils and water back in the sauce pan.  It should have some wateriness to it.  If not, add a little water.  The lentils should be edible but a little crunchy.  (In a survival situation you could eat them at this stage and just put up with the crunchiness.)


You can add pre-cooked meat at this stage.  Like ham or canned chicken or whatever.

Bring the lentils back to a boil and then bring the heat down and simmer it for 5 minutes, stirring.  Most of the water will boil off or get absorbed. The lentils will not be total mush, but they will also not be crunchy anymore.  Ta-da!

I think this recipe could be good for work: you boil it, stick it in your Thermos, go to work, and at lunch time, microwave it in a Pyrex dish for like 3 minutes.  You could also hike with the Thermos in your pack and then have it for lunch.

I have also tried this recipe with just pouring boiling water over the dried lentils in the beginning.  This also works but the lentils are crunchier at the 4 hour mark.

Herbal Fluoride Filter Made From a "Noxious" Weed

http://www.homelandsecuritynewswire.com/dr20130306-using-plants-for-herbal-defluoridation-of-drinking-water

Someone has come up with a use for Tridax Procumbens. (an aster or small flowered daisy called "Coat Buttons" or "Tridax Daisy") that is classified by the USDA as a noxious weed and grows in waste areas in Florida, but is native to Central and South America.  Somehow they use it with aluminum and it gets fluoride out of water. (I wonder if then the aluminum has to be gotten out)

How to Dodge Drone Attacks

Yesterday www.theblaze.com published two letters that Sen. Rand Paul received, one from Eric Holder and the other from John Brennan, which on their surface appear to say they're not likely to drone Americans, but really there's enough mealy-mouthed weasel wording in both letters as to leave the possibility open, should anything "happen" (which it very well might, given the other preparations the US gov seems to be making against its own people).

So, it would follow, you might want to know how to dodge drone strikes!  And we can learn from the people the US has been droning already.

I found this list here, it purports to be a translation from an Al-Qaida document found in some destroyed building. http://planet.infowars.com/preparedness/22-tips-for-dodging-drone-attacks

I would make one correction to this list.  Skygrabber is software that costs $89.95, but you also need a device called Tuner4PC, which if you get them together is $126.  Here is their website www.skygrabber.com  Certainly not the $2,595 the Infowars site is saying.  This software probably used to cost $29.95.  That's my guess, as I remember it was cheaper a few years ago.  The ostensible, advertised  purpose of Skygrabber is to get free movies off the air.  I don't know how useful it would actually be, since the US became aware of its use and probably scrambled their drone signals after that.  But it's cheap enough to get, just in case.  Plus, you might get some movies out of it.

So here is the list as I found it.

1. It is possible to know the intention and the mission of the drone by using the Russianmade “sky grabber” device to infiltrate the drone’s waves and the frequencies. The device is available in the market for $2,595 and the one who operates it should be a computer know-how.
2. Using devices that broadcast frequencies or pack of frequencies to disconnect the contacts and confuse the frequencies used to control the drone. The Mujahideen have had successful experiments using the Russian-made “Racal.”
3. Spreading the reflective pieces of glass on a car or on the roof of the building.
4. Placing a group of skilled snipers to hunt the drone, especially the reconnaissance ones because they fly low, about six kilometres or less.
5. Jamming of and confusing of electronic communication using the ordinary water-lifting dynamo fitted with a 30-metre copper pole.
6. Jamming of and confusing of electronic communication using old equipment and keeping them 24-hour running because of their strong frequencies and it is possible using simple ideas of deception of equipment to attract the electronic waves devices similar to that used by the Yugoslav army when they used the microwave (oven) in attracting and confusing the Nato missiles fitted with electromagnetic searching devices.
7. Using general confusion methods and not to use permanent headquarters.
8. Discovering the presence of a drone through well-placed reconnaissance networks and to warn all the formations to halt any movement in the area.
9. To hide from being directly or indirectly spotted, especially at night.
10. To hide under thick trees because they are the best cover against the planes.
11. To stay in places unlit by the sun such as the shadows of the buildings or the trees.
12. Maintain complete silence of all wireless contacts.
13. Disembark of vehicles and keep away from them especially when being chased or during combat.
14. To deceive the drone by entering places of multiple entrances and exits.
15. Using underground shelters because the missiles fired by these planes are usually of the fragmented anti-personnel and not anti-buildings type.
16. To avoid gathering in open areas and in urgent cases, use building of multiple doors or exits.
17. Forming anti-spies groups to look for spies and agents.
18. Formation of fake gatherings such as using dolls and statutes to be placed outside false ditches to mislead the enemy.
19. When discovering that a drone is after a car, leave the car immediately and everyone should go in different direction because the planes are unable to get after everyone.
20. Using natural barricades like forests and caves when there is an urgent need for training or gathering.
21. In frequently targeted areas, use smoke as cover by burning tires.
22. As for the leaders or those sought after, they should not use communications equipment because the enemy usually keeps a voice tag through which they can identify the speaking person and then locate him.

Teen Survives 2 Nights in Maine Woods By Making Snow Cave

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/03/05/search-for-missing-massachusetts-teen-continues-at-maine-sugarloaf-mountain/

This teenage boy skied in the wrong direction and ended up lost in the Maine woods.  The first thing you do if you get stranded in the wilderness is make or find a shelter so you can stay warm and dry.  Then the next thing you do is find water.  He made a snow cave, and he found water.  He did all the right things and he is still alive.

Note, it is not the best thing to eat snow in order to hydrate yourself because it will make you cold.  He drank from a stream, which was a little less cold.  He also walked toward the sound of snowmobiles and found civilization again that way.

Chock Fulla Coinkydinks



Here are two strange coinkydinks that have happened to me lately:

Last night someone was telling me that one of her friends thought a kitsune, a Japanese fox spirit, followed her around.  This morning someone else told me she had seen a baby fox in the road.


Two nights ago I met a guy (an American) who spoke fluent Russian and Polish. Then last night I was online and saw something claiming that 30% of the Russian and Polish truck drivers working for Canadian trucking companies have been disappearing in the US, along with their trucks. I think it's weird that both things had both Russian and Polish in them.

I dunno what it is with the coinkydinks, there are a few others that aren't as glaringly obvious and that I can't remember right this second.  These things tend to come in rashes that last a day or two.  On the other hand, I've been getting out more, so perhaps there is more opportunity for the coinkydink fairies to do their thing.
