Musings on the Ukraine & NATO’s Russian Fantasy:

In this piece I’m not going to speak of the context of the US/Russia & Ukraine beyond reminding folks that the Russians (some 3 million) were slaughtered in WW1 because their opponent was able to mobilize faster and strike across the frontier at an ill prepared motherland.  WW2 was a bit different in that the Russians were mobilizing to effect a first strike against the Germans but the Germans, seeing the build-up chose to strike first (Operation Barbarossa) before Russian forces were prepared.  Slaughter, again ensued and before the war’s end some 27 million Russians died which engrained in the Russian cultural/racial memory that never again will they wait to be kicked in the nuts.

When the Soviets (the bad guys) installed their sock puppet (Castro) in Havana, Cuba and started deploying their ballistic missiles (pointed at US targets) the US was rightfully ‘miffed’.  Essentially it came down to get your missiles out of Cuba or all-out WAR will ensue.  The Soviets withdrew their missiles.

The current manufactured ‘crisis’ is little different except the US overthrew Ukraine’s elected government (right on Russia’s border), installed their sock-puppet fascist government and are now emplacing significant weapons (pointed at Russia) including the Aegis Ashore system (Google it) which is quite capable of launching nuclear warheads.  Throw in some ethnic cleansing of Russian citizens on the part of Ukraine’s neo-nazis and those being “cleansed” declaring independence from the US/Ukraine fascist regime and you have the makings of a powder keg reminiscent of the Cuban Missile Crisis.  Essentially the Russians, like the US in the sixties) finds all of this unacceptable and have been very clear on their unhappiness and the West has told them to piss up a rope.

In spite of this reality all we hear from the political ‘class’ and their media prostitutes is:

If provoked ‘enough’, the Russians will, of course, move on Ukraine.  Were Ukraine’s fascists to move against the Russian population in Donbass who’ve declared (2014) independence, Russia will react ‘asymmetrically’.  If NATO moves to incorporate Ukraine into its alliance,  the Russians will move on Ukraine ‘asymmetrically’.  There’s little doubt here; it’s ‘expected’ even by NATO.

In addition to the endless provocations exacerbating this crisis the US has threatened economic sanction and ‘political’ countermeasures if the Russian Bear stirs further.  Where the US has been imposing endless and increasing ‘sanctions’ on Russia since 2012 and politically opposed Russian interests since the Soviet government imploded, Russian leadership may just be saying to itself “Who gives a f__ck?”

With advanced weapons pouring into Ukraine from the US it’s only a matter of time (perhaps February/March 2021) before the crackpots in Kiev use them against Donbass or even Crimea.  For those not paying attention, on 24 March 2021, the lunatics in Kiev, (Zelensky president/Ukraine), issued Decree 117/2021.  It said:  “1. To put into effect the decision of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine of March 11, 2021 “On the Strategy of deoccupation and reintegration of the temporarily occupied territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol” (attached).

2. To approve the Strategy of deoccupation and reintegration of the temporarily occupied territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol (attached).

3. Control over the implementation of the decision of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, enacted by this Decree, shall be vested in the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine.

4. This Decree shall enter into force on the day of its publication.”

The fifty cent translation is Kiev’s declaring Ukraine’s intent to seize Crimea from Russia, by force.  Were Mexico to declare their intent to seize Texas and reincorporate it into Mexico does anyone think Fort Bliss would be standing down or would Major General Sean Bernabe’s 1st Armored Division be prepositioning assets to meet whatever goofiness Mexico chose to initiate against the territory of the United States & Texas?

So, as idiocy goes, poking, prodding and acting stupid eventually will get a response from the Russian Bear.  My guess is the Russians will roll across the border of Donbass and take up defensive positions protecting that region from Ukraine.  Then what? Well, we can count on Washington’s “economic sanctions and ‘political’ countermeasures” along with a bunch of threatening bluster.  Might even see a few shots fired from the left and the right.

I envision Washington starting with booting Russia out of the SWIFT system and targeting Russian banking entities some more.  Where Russia has already dumped virtually all Dollar denominated reserves from it sovereign wealth funds and foreign reserves (replacing them with gold bullion) and Russia, China & India having already moved forward with a replacement to the SWIFT system the impact will be minimal.  On the other hand imagine for a moment if Russia’s response to NATO movements and further sanctions were shutting off the pipeline of natural gas to Europe.

Russia supplies between 170-203 billion cubic meters of natural gas to Europe.  This is about 40% of all EU gas.  Reserves are currently depleted ~ the EU is facing historical-low storage levels according to the managing director at BEnergy Solutions DMCC in Dubai.  Natural gas not only heats the homes of Europeans but powers their industry and is used to manufacture fertilizer for all their agriculture.  Cut that in half and Europeans will NOT support a war in Europe.  NATO, in spite of all their rainbows & unicorns, will be without support.

So what happens when sanctions & political measures fail and Russia imposes a counter embargo of LNG to Europe and, in fact, the shooting starts because Ukraine & NATO doesn’t like it when Donbass is seized/protected by Russian ground forces.  Well, planes and missiles will fly and armored groups will roll.  When that happens folks should consider certain realities that their governments and media haven’t been telling them because civilians just don’t read Janes (

The west might be reminded of the USS Donald Cook (DDG-75) affair which, on 10 April 2014, was overflown by a single Sukhoi-24 fighter while carrying out provocations in the Black Sea.  The Donald Cook is a 4th Generation guided missile destroyer equipped with the most sophisticated Aegis Combat Systems our Navy has, fifty anti-aircraft missiles and the latest Tomahawk cruise missiles yet, when the Russian fighter approached it, every combat system was turned off like something out of the scifi show Battlestar Galactica where the ‘Cylons’ eviserated the good guys by way of their electronic counter measures.  Then, the Sukhoi flew leisurely low level passes over the ship, even waving to it’s crew as it slowly passed their combat bridge.  Upon returning to port 27 sailors of the Cook’s crew requested to be relieved from active service.

As recently as October/November 2021 NATO was embracing the suck again with their F35 advanced fighters who suffered serious effects from coming within range of Russian border defenses at Murmansk.  The Russian’s BN electronic warfare systems shut down (jammed) the F-35’s avionics such that it’s said, it was like “trying to fly a brick”.  In November they successfully took out one of their own, defunct Tselina satellites using one of their S-500 anti-air ground systems proving that any earth satellites are within Russian purview using their anti-air missiles.

So imagine for a moment just how bright the ‘leaders’ are who insist of poking the Bear when the Bear has publicly said that if they’re threatened they WILL attack “asymmetrically” and they will hit the countries where the orders “originated” to threaten them (US targets) rather than only in the theater of conflict.  Imagine for a moment thinking your sanctions will have some effect when the nation sanctioned throws a switch and cuts all of Europe’s industrial productivity in half, cuts Europe’s agricultural efficiency by half and leaves much of the European population cold this winter.  Imagine for a moment sending your militaries against a world-class opponent who, at the flick of a switch, shuts down all your electronic systems (GPS, radars, communications, computers, targeting systems and electricity) upon which your militaries rely in order to engage an enemy.  Throw in hypersonic missiles (that work) traveling at Mach 15 (5 kilometers per second)  for which the Russians have in air-launch, sea-launch & ground launched variants deployed as well as a few ‘Sarmat’ (SX-X-30 Satan II) ICBMs which aren’t city killers but ‘region killers’ such that only one (1) would be needed for taking out all of France or Texas.  These warheads enter the atmosphere at hypersonic speed and move along a larger trajectory, maneuvering at a speed of 7 to 7.5 kilometers per second. 

For the believers in rainbows and unicorns planning on using everything they learned from WW2, as I pointed out here (, NATO would face three times the number of main battle tanks available to NATO if only they faced Russia alone.  Unfortunately, Russia’s ally Belarus (White Russia) can field more of their own tanks than NATO can field all together.  NATO wouldn’t fair well against four to one odds which is probably why the RAND Corporation (CIA) concluded in 2015 the Russians would overrun all of Europe in 60 hours.

Sixty hours to total defeat in Europe might be wishful thinking however since we couldn’t beat the Taliban in 19 years and 10 months.  Frankly, we couldn’t even win a war fighting ourselves in spite of our dumbed down, shades of moronic, leadership purged, minority sensitive, pro-LGBTXYZ military let alone a country boasting 100 years of in-door plumbing or, God forbid, the Russians having a third of our population.  

Ukraine ~ bad idea.

P.S. Do any of the rainbow & unicorn crowd think that rolling on the Russian Bear wouldn’t be closely followed by the Chinese dropping in on Taiwan such that the US might enjoy Two-Front Fun and the full ambience of global war?

When Taiwan falls to their brethren the west may well be in quite the pickle in high-tech circles to maintain their technology without the chips supplied by the Republic of China. No Taiwan = no chips for all that neat stuff that makes the west the west. Right now 1.1 million vehicles face delays in manufacturing in the US due to a semi-conductor slowdown without the Chicoms taking Taiwan. Imagine what will be delayed when NOTHING is supplied by Taiwan.

P.S.S. The rainbow & unicorn crowd might also want to think about oil because those pesky Iranians are pals with Russia and the Straight of Hormuz is only 21 miles wide. A few speed boats and 1/3rd of the world’s natural gas and 25% of its oil consumption might not get past the Iranians. Brandon may want to open those closed pipelines before war breaks out.

Those Evil Un-Vaccinated folks

I saw a sign on a door the other days stating that masks were ‘required’ for anyone not able to prove they were vaccinated with the governments Spike Shot.  This almost makes a person, who can still fog a mirror, laugh.

Consider ~ Government, CDC, WHO et al, all admit (and have said publicly) that their shot does NOT stop you from getting their weaponized cold virus.  They’ve admitted (and have said publicly) that their shot does NOT stop you from spreading their weaponized cold virus.  The only thing their shot does is “mitigate” the symptoms of their weaponized cold virus.

So ponder two Americans ~ Me, who won’t get the Spike Shot but who takes reasonable care not to catch a seasonal bug by taking lots of vitamin D and not trading spit with anyone who’s showing symptoms.  Alas, maybe I catch their weaponized cold virus that’s fatal in less than 1% of the cases.  I get their covid cold and stay home crying like a little school girl until I recover.   Now consider another American, you maybe, who gets the Spike Shot.  Since there’s no protection or immunity resulting from the shot, you too catch their weaponized cold virus.  However, in your case, your symptoms are mitigated so you’re not home in bed crying like a little school girl until you recover like I am.  Instead, you’re at work, at the Mall, at church and partying with your friends all the while shedding this virus to everyone whom you come in contact with.

Just who’s the alleged “super spreader” here?  (asking for a friend)

Masks & vaccines are, however, smoke-screen issues to divert your attention.  People need to remember “GAIN-OF-FUNCTION” first and foremost.  Gain-of-function is summed up quite literally as ‘make it more communicable to people and make it more dangerous’.  (“Dr. Daszak: We found other coronaviruses in bats a whole host of them. Some of them looked very similar to SARS so we sequenced the spike protein, the protein that attaches to cells. Then we, well I didn’t do this work my colleagues in China did the work, you create pseuda-particles. You create a spike proteins from those viruses simply bind to human cells. each step of this you move closer and closer to this virus could really become pathogenic to people.“) So, covid was “developed” ~ we KNOW THIS.  Fauci’s communications with others involved in ‘developing’ Covid (gain-of-function) have gone public and are well documented.  There is no longer any doubt at all that he, in conjunction with others and at the behest of the US government, did ‘create/make’ the Covid 19 virus by splicing SARs and HIV as well as God knows what else and allowed it to be released into the wild. The release spawned the global Covid pandemic.  The pandemic ushered the mRNA “vaccines” which were ready for deployment before the Covid bug was ever released and the pandemic declared.  (It’s interesting to note that they’ve been playing with mRNA vaccine variants since before 2010.  Also of note is the fact that Moderna Therapeutics, was founded in 2010, and raised almost $2 billion in capital with a plan to commercialize mRNA-based vaccines and therapies172,173.  It’s of little surprise then that in October of 2019 Fauci and his pharma friends had an hour long discussion (C-span  video) covering their proposed “Universal Flu Vaccine” which was 3 months prior to the declared Covid emergency on 30 January 2020 and 5 whole months prior to the declaration of a world-wide Covid pandemic on 11 March 2020.  Damned convenient timing, eh?) The vaccines are causing all manner of secondary (non-covid) deaths from heart failure to micro-blood clots.  Simply put, this ‘event’ from start to finish is an exercise in genocide ~ a “crime against humanity”.  

“Crimes against humanity are certain acts that are purposefully committed as part of a widespread or systematic policy, directed against civilians, in times of war or peace. They differ from war crimes because they are not isolated acts committed by individual soldiers but are acts committed in furtherance of a state or organizational policy.”

The perpetrators, starting with Fauci, his bosses and their bosses, every organization he funded as well as their management should be tried and hung for these “crimes against humanity” just like certain nazis were when their involvement in similar acts was concluded because what the nazis were alleged to have done will pale in comparison to the deaths these criminals have wrought.

To reiterate, gain-of-function means they made this bug which means they are responsible and thus in clear violation of the Biological Weapons Convention which went into effect in 1975.  Thus they are guilty of “crimes against humanity” for all the millions of deaths resulting from this being released as well as the millions more who will die from the tertiary effects/deaths from the deployment of the mRNA vaccines being forced upon the population.  As such, they should be tried and executed for their involvement.  Never forget that.

New Hampshire School Choice & ‘separation of church and state’

For those who may not have studied Constitutional Law or, sadly, been subject to state sponsored ‘public schools’ that rarely, if ever, discussed in any real detail, the fundamental principles that laid the foundation of our country, I thought I might take a moment to expound a bit on the euphemism often bantered about (incorrectly), known as “separation of church and state” in the context of school choice. These words, “separation of church and state”, are an ‘interpretation’ of the first line of our 1st Amendment which reads: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.  Please note the word “establishment” and the phrase “prohibiting the free exercise thereof” and recognize their literal (not interpreted) meanings.

It was never the ‘original intent’ of the founders that the “state” was to purge itself of religious beliefs and/or act as some kind of ‘gatekeeper’  protecting the civil population from any particular or all, religious beliefs or customs.  The ‘original intent’ of the phrase, in our 1st Amendment, was to address the fear of the establishment of a State Church or State Religion such as they had fled from (Church of England) to come here.  Their fear (the merging church and state) they knew, results in practice, in suppressing other religions and since freedom of religion (not freedom ‘from’ religion) was, in fact, one of the prima facie reasons for the formation of the united States, the “state” would never be allowed to interfere with religion or establish a preference for one belief (creed) over another.

If “separation of church and state” was really ‘legally binding’ when it comes to funding schools having a religious ‘bent’  (as some people incorrectly believe) ~ if it were such a ‘hallowed’ American legal axiom that none should ever suggest we violate it, then why does the Federal government, in fact, fund private, religious schools?  Taxpayer dollars flow every year to Boston College (run by Jesuits) ~ College of the Holy Cross ~ Georgetown University ~ Thomas Aquinas College ~ and the University of Notre Dame (to name a few) and these are catholic colleges.  They all receive taxpayer funding through Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 which covers the administration of the united States Federal student financial aid programs.  Federal tax monies fund “Title IV aid” and half the students attending these schools receive Title IV grants and Title IV “Federal” underwritten student loans ~ these funds underwrite these religious schools.  Nor does funding only apply to the catholics.  Your Federal tax dollars offer the same Title IV financial support for protestant schools such as Davidson College ~ St. Olaf College ~ Baylor University ~ Luther College ~ and Augustana University as well as all other religious denominations throughout our country which are similarly funded/supported. 

Anyone reading the paragraph above should conclude & concede that the ‘interpretative’ phrase “separation of church and state” (as they understand it) clearly does NOT apply to ‘equally’ funding religious schools as they like to use the phrase.  The Higher Education Act of 1965 (Federal funding) does NOT discriminate against school choice even when that choice is to attend any of the 1,000 religious affiliated colleges and universities in the united States.  It could be posited that to do so ~ to ‘preclude’ funding tuition assistance equally ~ would be a direct violation of our Constitution’s 1st Amendment reading in part: “Congress shall make no law … prohibiting the free exercise thereof.

People lamenting that if school choice is equally funded, if private or religious related schools are included in any eventual tuition grant agreement, that the funding (gravy train) for these public, unaccountable citadels of state sponsored ‘learning’ might be reduced.  What they’re ‘really’ supporting, however, isn’t some interpretation of the wording of our 1st Amendment but the continuation of state run monopoly on propagandized indoctrination and the protection of little or zero accountability for performance and outcome if the guiding metric is, in fact, student grades and performance.  One should remember ‘why’ state sponsored/controlled schooling was implemented in the united States.

We can thank Horace Mann, then secretary of the Massachusetts Board of Education, seeking a way to change what he deemed the “unruly” (meaning independent) children into disciplined citizens who studied the Prussian model of public education of the 1840s and brought it home to America to be adopted nationwide.  The Prussian, forced public educational system was designed for the purpose of delivering:  1) Obedient soldiers to the army; 2) Obedient workers for mines, factories, and farms; 3) Well-subordinated civil servants, trained in their function; 4) Well-subordinated clerks for industry; 5) Citizens who thought alike on most issues; 6) National uniformity in thought, word, and deed.  (  Given the current acknowledgment that the public school systems have generally resulted in “the dumbing down of America” I suppose what’s being supported is the maintenance of that existing status quo providing the state with a cowed, subservient and easily controlled population.  Or, given the fact that “free education for all children in public schools” was a key plank of Marx’s Communist Manifesto, perhaps they’re supporting that leftist goal.  I wonder why?

School choice reflects nothing but People making market-driven decisions.  They go for whatever resource/service will provide them the best product (if they’re allowed to “choose”) that they can afford.  It’s the very premise of ‘outsourcing’.  In our particular case (Goshen, New Hampshire) our options are the state controlled ‘pillars’ of learning such as the Newport public schools or similarly controlled venues in towns further away or the local private options.  The private options include The Montessori school in Newport or the catholic school in Sunapee both of which are far less expensive than our town hands over to the low performing ‘public’ Newport school, et al.  Another critical consideration for any parent is that based on empirical evidence such as student test scores, these two private options offer a superior education.  I chose Mount Royal, not because of any religious bent (I’m, in fact, an avowed atheist) but because of the ‘value’ of the education offered.

So, ignore the fact that school choice (including private or religious schools) hasn’t violated the 1st Amendment by establishing any church or preferential treatment towards a church.  Ignore the fact that school choice (including private or religious schools) hasn’t  interfered with the practice of anyone’s religion or lack thereof and, most importantly, ignore the fact that the government has (in fact) been supporting school choice (including private and religious schools) by funneling millions of dollars annually to over a thousand religious colleges and universities through the Higher Education Act of 1965 for over a half century.

If your preference is to adopt someone else’s personal “interpretation” of (“separation of church and state”) itself being someone’s “interpretation” of another phrase (“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion”) that has zero bearing on school choice given 50 years of funding of Title IV financial aid, rather than do a little research and understand the original intent of our Constitution then, by all means, ignore the facts and LISTEN to (obey) the diehard traditionalists who support and will codify a monolithic, unaccountable and failing money pit rather than any sort of competition (based of the metric of student performance) to their gravy train and ‘control’.  I’m sure the left leaning unions supporting these state schools who’s goal (rather than ‘teaching’) appear to be the maintenance of a docile people who accept anything their ‘betters’ tell them to accept, will appreciate not having to compete with better run, more cost effective (almost half the price) alternatives who provide a better product (higher test scores) and outcome for your children.  If you don’t accept these sub-par government schools then you must be some fanatical misogynist Druid, perhaps kick defenseless puppies when no one’s watching or secretly support Vlad Putin.

The Post-Election State of the Union

When an “election” takes place and the results are illegally negated resulting in the conspirators seizing power it’s called, quite simply, a coup d’état.  The very definition of a coup d’état means that your country, such that it was, has been overthrown.  It’s estimated that 161 million Americans voted in the 2020 presidential election and, according to Rasmussen polls, 30% of democrats and 70% of republicans believe the election was stolen.  The new regime was installed (inaugurated) behind tall fences and barbed wire, ushered in by 30,000 troops in the streets of Washington, who possessed no bullets for their weapons, overlooking only a sea of rainbow flags where any other President saw multitudes of Americans witnessing their swearing in.  

Unless I’m missing something, anyone still believing the ‘united’ States is anything more than another Banana republic in the Americas needs to share whatever drug-of-choice they’re using with the rest of us.  There’s no ‘exceptionalism’ here ~ just another oligarchy with no principles, no rule of Law and little, if any ‘honor’ remaining.

We Americans need to understand that subverting the election “MEANS” that there has been an overthrow of their government.  Looked at another way, if, through a lot of shenanigans and cheating within the Vatican’s Secret Conclave, a well known Rabbi was placed in the position of supreme pontiff of the ‘Catholic Church’ and the College of Cardinals were found to be, in fact, a bunch of muslim Imams would the 1.2 billion Catholics in the world still believe the Vatican was legitimately the epicenter of the “Catholic Church” and follow the dictates of a Rabbinical Pontiff and his band of muslim Imams just because the Vatican flag still flew over Rome?

Likewise, any legitimacy the united States had as a free Republic, having a representative government that derived their authority from the People is gone when illegal and un-Constitutional means are accepted to subvert an election.  The fact the American national flag is still allowed to fly means no more than seeing any other defunct national flag flying, such as a Tsarist flag, the flag of Rhodesia or the Imperial German flag, when the governments represented by those flags have been relegated to the dust-bin of history.  Flying the flag of an overthrown nation indicates nostalgia rather than reality.

What amazes me is when you consider the Oath sworn by anyone in government not the least of which are members of our armed forces.  One swears that he/she does: “solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same”.  How many Americans, having watched the events of the 2020 election, believe in their hearts that the election was screwed with and the resulting fraud has placed an unelected regime in power that did NOT lawfully win the election?  If this regime did not actually win the election then our Constitution has been usurped and government overthrown.  If our Constitution has been usurped then any ‘orders’ issued by these people or their minions are unlawful.  In fact, the belief that the election was, in fact, illegally carried out means the very Oath sworn not only precludes following any orders coming down their chain of command but REQUIRES such an Oath taker to not just “bear true faith” to our Constitution but to actively “defend” it by any means necessary in order to restore a lawful Constitutional government.  Were we to guess the military were 60% republican and 40% democrat it probably equates to half the military believing this country has been overthrown.  Where are those half a million service people on their Oath? 

People having taken that Oath to “support and defend the Constitution” and then choosing not to do so are choosing their ‘job security’ over fulfilling their Oath to their fellow American People and our Constitution.  They’re hoping that the precedent set after WW2, that the “Nuremberg defense” was no defense at all won’t come into play for them.  The “Nuremberg defense” was the claim made by many defendants at Nuremberg, be they members of the military, law enforcement, firefighters, or the civilian population, when they claimed they were not guilty of “crimes” because they were simply “following orders” of their superiors or government officials.  The Germans referred to it as “Befehl ist Befehl” wherein they should be excused of any culpability relating to ‘oppression’ since they were required to follow orders and obey their superiors.  Fact is, “following orders” didn’t work out well as a defense for them.

Thinking one can ‘go along to get along’ might not be as sound a mind-set as thought because if one’s not willing to take a principled stand when criminals overthrow your government it’s not likely to get easier to take a principled stand when they order you to lock up (or execute) your neighbors.  Just saying…

People need to stop talking about “their democracy” being “threatened” in the light of their election being stolen.  Simply put, you don’t HAVE any democracy or Republic when the results of an election are overturned and NOT resisted in any meaningful way.  It’s really time people get over this.  Defrauding an election by un-Constitutional means and then installing the criminals who hatched the scheme is establishing a tyranny.  Following orders to perpetuate the tyranny is treason.  Given that, it seems to me, it should now be clear to almost anyone who can still fog a mirror, that we should dispense with any references to living in a “Republic” and should finally put a fork in all that “home of the brave” stuff that people like to banter about.  

Just an opinion, of course, but one derived from observing ‘obvious’ current events.

2020 & The ‘Social Contract’

Given the current state of affairs with the united States and reflecting on my college years, I ponder what’s meant by the phrase a “social contract” in the context of government and specifically in the context of “legitimate government”.  This concept, of a “contract” based state or government was articulated in Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s 1762 treatise. In our case, that “contract” was our Constitution.  In it, we described specific limitations of power we were granting to government and that the government could NOT (“lawfully”) overstep these limitations.  When one side of that contractual agreement, unilaterally states the terms of the agreement have ‘changed’ or are no longer in force, or won’t be enforced, by anyone’s standards, that contract ~ the original agreement ~ is voided.  Some (‘liberals’) think this concept dating back to 1762, upon which our country was founded, no longer applies.  They (though they may be unaware or book read sufficiently to recognize it) adhere more towards a totalitarian Machiavellian mind-set rather than anything our nation’s founders had in mind ~ that the end justifies the means.

With the events surrounding the 2020 ‘election’ we, as a country, have crossed that Rubicon.  We must acknowledge that there are now two trains of thought within America.  Those who can justify in their minds unilateral changes to the social contract that once bound the country together and those who believe those are illegal acts and won’t accept the new paradigm.  It’s important to note that every individual elected, appointed and/or hired by the government must swear an Oath to our Constitution.  That Oath articulated in 5 U.S. Code § 3331 articulates that the Oath taker “will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same

One could document a litany of examples of illegalities perpetrated against our country in this last election.  Pristine (unmailed) ballots for Biden (100s of thousands of them) showing up just when & where they were needed, dead people voting, the media outwardly violating the Constitutional protections of “free speech” and “free press”, in support of a falsified election, unilateral censorship of a sitting US president and everyone else that remotely supported him and a plethora of other illegal irregularities.  In one state alone more than 600,000 MORE absentee ballots were received (and counted for Biden) than were sent out to voters to use.  There are, for most of us, too many to comprehend and listing them gives too many ‘vectors’ to argue.  Cutting through the BS, it boils down to simply this ~ if you feel you can ‘accept’ that states allowed minor election officials, lower court judges or even Secretaries of State to make unconstitutional changes to election procedures without the ‘lawful’ approvals by the representative state legislatures and thus violating their Constitutions as well as our federal Constitution, then you are part of the “new paradigm”.  By accepting this you have accepted not just a breach in our Constitutional Law but are fine with enabling fraud, cheating, subverting & concealing fraud by those states election commissions.  By accepting this you have accepted that free and fair elections in this country can be overturned by some cabal and the American People’s Right to a free and fair election comes second to your interests and the interests of that cabal.

With whatever ‘due respect’ you may think you’re due ~ if you feel you can ‘accept’ all these states making last minute, unConstitutional changes to voting criteria without their legislature’s lawful approval/authorization in order to effect the outcome of this election, then you are, quite simply, a statist with no loyalty to this country, its People or its foundations.  You are, in my humble opinion, a piece of shit that needs to be scraped from the Docksiders of the American public.  You are a traitor to what was once a Constitutional ‘Republic’ ~ the United States of America.  If you find yourself ‘offended’ by my conclusions let me just be clear about the fact that I really don’t give a fuck.  Nor, it’s pretty safe to say, does more than half this country.  To quote an American euphemism, you made this bed and now you and your ilk will have to lie in it.  Or, to use another American euphemism in the current context:   ‘There are four boxes to be used in the defense of liberty: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the ammo box.’  To address the leftists in 2020, the conservatives have, indeed, used the soap box, they have used the ballot box and they even tried the jury box.  Alas, these traitors, having cheated and defrauded their fellow Americans at every “box” they’ve turned to.  Barring some miracle they appear to be leaving real Americans that last box. I hope not but I can’t imagine this being acceptable ~ time will tell:

Existing in a post-Constitutional America

As has been proven to us (beyond any reasonable doubt) by way of the theft or usurpation of the 2020 election, America is now a post-Constitutional state.  There is no longer any “Republic”.  There isn’t even a sham-republic anymore.  Where once people may have said we’re “a nation of laws not men” I don’t think there’s any doubt we went completely off those rails after 2016.  The once great FBI isn’t in the ‘law-enforcement’ business anymore.  It ignores the ‘Law’ in favor of carrying out political hit jobs and setting up innocent people who have made themselves inconvenient to those who presume to rule us.  The DOJ backs them up.  The courts (clearly) can no longer be counted on to carry out their duty.  The military ‘leadership’? They clearly no longer adhere to the Oath they swore when they vowed they would “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; and will bear true faith and allegiance to the same” so don’t count on the cavalry coming to save the day.  Uncensored press and freedom of speech are gone.  VP Pence could do the right thing on January 6th but I’m putting my money on him not having the courage so as of this point, we’re all living in a country where our Constitution no longer applies.  A good correlation of our current circumstance might be the day the legitimate government of France surrendered and the Vichy government was established during World War 2.  The Vichy regime served the purpose of putting a local ‘face’ on a government collaborating with the conquering occupier.  Thus, the Biden/Harris (Quisling) regime ~ a criminal enterprise ~ will be the ruling power in America until those pulling their strings role into town. 

Of course, we’re expected to have to ‘adapt’ to this new normal.  We’re expected to accept these new guardians of the state while they disabuse us of that time honored illusion of living in a “free country”, where we may have thought Rights were respected by authorities, where we thought elections mattered, where riotous swine weren’t handed the streets to scare the piss out of our fellow Citizens and ‘mainstream’ politicians didn’t openly advocate kicking our Constitution to the curb in order to seize power.  For those who grew up in the 60s – 70s we can clearly see the national idiom of “united we stand” entered the category of ‘myth’ long ago.  Our national motto of “E pluribus unum” ~ Latin for “Out of many, one” ~ is so much bullshit now.   That said, many Americans won’t accept this.  They won’t buy the ‘Borg’ directive articulated by the ‘democrats’ that “resistance is futile” ~ some just won’t ‘assimilate’.  As with the Vichy regime or Norway’s Quisling collaborators in WW2, anyone serving this post-Constitutionalist, leftist regime will be viewed (by many who feel the election of 2020 was an abject fraud & theft) as nothing more than latter day Benedict Arnolds.   The operative question in our future will be ‘how will traitors and treason be dealt with in the new America’ by the People.  We shall see.

Before, every argument with some leftist democrat was expected to remain ‘civil’ and conservatives were always pressured to remain ‘open minded’ and ‘reasonable’ but when a nation’s traditions, laws and, indeed, its government is overthrown, it’s pretty safe to say that any expectation the leftists have of the other side remaining “reasonable” while their Rights are stolen is pretty much fucked.  Where our Constitution has been overtly usurped We The People might just determine we’re no longer hamstrung by any previous Constitutional restrictions or expectations that might have limited our reaction to or interface with any representative of civil government remaining loyal to these Quislings in DC.  There might be no reasonable expectation that where the leftists have thrown out the rule of law and subverted our Constitution that they should expect any protections afforded by ‘Law’ and our Constitution when confronted by the rightful blowback from those they intend to oppress.  Due Process may well be tossed out by some conservatives just as it’s been thrown under the bus by the leftists.  To quote an old Latin phrase: Inter arma enim silent leges ~ “In times of war, the law falls silent.”  While I’m only guessing, I would say that those boarding the Gloating Train (leftist politicians from the left and the right, media people, deluded supporters and anyone acting in an ‘official capacity’ in support of this illicit regime) should probably expect no quarter from the people whom they just stole an election from.

Frankly, while I don’t like the guy, never voted for him and wouldn’t buy him a drink with your money, with regard to the ‘election’, clearly the other side missed the memo, this isn’t about ‘The Donald’, rather, it’s about our country. They’ve chosen to subvert it and that’s treason. What will we do about it? 

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.” ~ Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

The 2020 Coup d’état

The question of the day is, would citizens of Tsarist Russia, owe loyalty and support to the bolsheviks who seized control of their state overthrew their Monarchy and murdered their Emperor, simply because now, they were in control?  If you’re a ‘bolshevik’ I suppose you might say “yes.  Were you a regular Konstantin, Sasha or Nickita in St. Petersburg very likely the answer would be “no”!

Having watched the rampant and pervasive election fraud of 2020 and the leftist candidate now having claimed victory (indeed, a “mandate” from the electorate) while the left’s media shills pronounce him “President-Elect” and the deep state smiles on legitimizing the coup d’état, do you owe ANY allegiance or loyalty to the coup plotters despite their having declared themselves victorious in an election they, themselves usurped?  I’m not asking if you love your country ~ I sure as hell do, rather if you owe ANY support and/or loyalty the regime that blatantly violated the Laws of this nation to seize control of our country?  I submit to you that no such loyalty, submission or fealty is warranted when traitors to the state unlawfully seize power and authority.

Violating Title 18 of the US Code, §2384 ‘Seditious conspiracy’ (“conspire to overthrow”) would get someone up to twenty years.  Violating Section §2385 ‘Advocating overthrow of Government’  would get someone up to twenty years as well.  Violating §242 ‘Deprivation of rights under the color of law’ (like defrauding voting & elections) someone would get from ten years to a death sentence if said deprivation of rights resulted in their co-conspirators causing a death.  One could go on and on.  The fact is people need to STOP dicking around with word games describing the events of November as an “election” because no one’s ever seen any election in history this corrupt.  This is nothing but a straight up coup d’état. Have the balls to call it what is is.

The ‘candidate’ told Michigan voters “I don’t need you to get me elected” as well as stating publicly that “Democrats had put together the most ‘extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization’ in the history of American politics.”  If the courts provide no remedy over the “election” and if our military and our Marine Corps allows it to stand, our country is lost.  

I recall that at the end of October 2001, when those nitwits in Washington passed and signed into law the Patriot Act, I went out on my front porch, took down my American (national) flag and replaced it with our Colonial flag.  I found the very concept of the enacted provisions of the Patriot Act so diametrically opposed to our Constitutionally protected Rights and the limitations placed on government thereto that, where I once swore an Oath to a Republic and our Constitution, I would honor that allegiance by flying the old Republic’s flag rather than the national flag which became a symbol of some bastardized, unitary regime.

Now, with the blatantly obvious usurpation of this election and presumption of authority by these leftists, I’ve lowered my flag of the old Republic and raised Christopher Gadsden’s flag over my property. I don’t owe these leftist coup plotters anything but resistance.

Perhaps I won’t be the only one.

Voting in the US ~ Should It Be For Everyone?

Accountability/Responsibility.  People banter around those terms (when it suits them) and conveniently make believe they don’t exist when it doesn’t suit them. 

I recently thought of those words in the context of our system of elections and I wondered why I should accept, while I’ve worked my whole life, paid my taxes and paid for a home ensconced in the hills of New Hampshire, hoping to quietly retire ~ in other words, been both (reasonably) responsible and accountable, that some drug addled individual, living in public housing who’s been on the government dole for the better part of their life, should be afforded an equal say in electing representatives who will chart the future of this once a great Republic.  Why, I wonder?

Since most don’t even know, I’ll point it out for them.  This country wasn’t founded as a “democracy”.  It’s never been a “democracy” in spite of what the oligarchs like their media shills to repeat endlessly.  Hopefully, it never will be a democracy.  The US Army published their definition of ‘democracy’  as a guide to our soldiers: “Democracy is the “direct” rule of the people and has been repeatedly tried without success.  A Democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of Government. It can only exist until the voters discover they can vote themselves largess out of the public treasury. From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that Democracy always collapses over a loose fiscal policy, always to be followed by a Dictatorship.  Only a democracy lets every damn fool vote~it should NOT be the case in a Republic.

Before we go any further here it needs to be noted that, in FACT, nothing in our Constitution explicitly guarantees everyone’s right to vote.  Rather, enfranchisement has ‘evolved’ since the founding of this Republic and will continue to “evolve” as time goes by.  For instance, crazy as it might sound to any ‘responsible’ adult, the democrats and and their queen Pelosi have pushed (in 2019/2020) to allow for all sixteen year olds (10th graders!) to vote and 53% of these leftists believe illegal aliens should also be allowed to vote (for them, presumably). 

In 2020, Kamala Harris, Biden’s running mate, said: “Young people ages 16-24 are stupid that is why we need more of them to vote.”   Leaving these 21st century leftists behind for a moment, when America was established only property owners were voters.  The belief being that those with something to loose, those who would have to ‘pay’ for government, perhaps even those with demonstrable “responsibility” and sounder judgement, were those enfranchised with voting for the people tasked with crafting the policies the government would implement.   

Oddly enough, some folks expect you to have some understanding of how to ‘reasonably’ drive a car before issuing a driver’s license.  Some folks expect you to have some level of competence to represent them in court or carry out surgery on their children.  When it comes to charting a path for a nation in debt up to its ass and sitting on thousands of nuclear weapons however, we don’t expect anyone to demonstrate any good judgement, responsibility or accountability.  Just be breathing (usually) and show up and you can decide our fate.  We don’t care who you are, where you live, if you can read, are sane or even if you’re a Citizen in this country.  As Bob Baker used to say “Come on down!”

Now, everyone can vote and, if the hopelessly stupid and ignorant leftists have their way (as stated above), sixteen year olds and illegal aliens ~ ‘foreigners’ (2019/2020) will be added to the electorate to those already non-working parasites, voting for leftists who continue to promise to pay them (from our tax dollars) to not work.  (Presumably if Vladimir Putin walks across the US/Mexico border, he can vote too, right?  If not, why not?  He’s no different than any Mexican/foreigner walking across our border.) 

Essentially, every breathing, narcissistic, post-pubescent, biped who can crash the gates will be granted the vote in America unless we begin reexamining limiting the franchise to those Citizens with demonstrable accountability and responsibility.  Before this nation disassembles or burns to the ground from the ‘demands’ posed by people with no skin in the game, I believe it’s time to ask do we ‘really’ value accountability and responsibility or do we simply give it lip service while accepting that no one gives a shit anymore?  Do you give a shit?

There are a couple of ways we might address this turd floating in the punchbowl, to save this country, before they ‘vote in’ the 21st century’s equivalent to Joe Stalin and create some monolithic communistic tyranny or force the country’s dismemberment into little socialist/communistic city-state dictatorships because, indeed, we’ve reached that Rubicon.  We could revert to a restrictive system where demonstrable accountability and responsibility earns a Citizen the Right to vote.  Those people would include property owners, serving military and veterans having been honorably discharged.   Anyone suggesting this would set us back to a time before the Andrew Jackson days where only ‘white’ property owners be allowed to vote is slinging BS.  Several constitutional amendments (the Fifteenth, Nineteenth, and Twenty-Sixth specifically) require that voting rights of U.S. citizens cannot be abridged on account of race, color, previous condition of servitude, sex, or age for those above 18 years of age.  Since anyone can own property (any race, any age, man, woman or even whatever), since anyone can also serve in our military, this first structural option doesn’t, in fact, discriminate under those Amendments.  It merely rewards sound choices, accountability and responsibility with the voting franchise that was never intended to be a ‘universal’ franchise.

The second structural option is we could simply lawfully disenfranchise anyone unable/unwilling to take care of themselves.  Anyone under the care or supervision of the states or federal government would lose the Right to vote.  My short list for disenfranchisement would include wards of the state (persons under the legal protection of some arm of the government), prisoners or any individual under the lawful ‘supervision’ of the state (probation/parole) until their committed term was fulfilled, people relying on the state/federal dole (public assistance), programs like SNAP (food stamps), subsidized housing, energy assistance and TANF (temporary assistance for needy families) until they rejoined the work force and were self sustaining.  Of course, leftist organizations will sue in court, but again, nothing in our Constitution explicitly guarantees our right to vote.  But, where Alexis de Tocqueville remarked, “The American Republic will endure, until politicians realize they can bribe the people with their own money.” coupled with the study done by the CATO Institute ( which points out “Poor people aren’t stupid. If they can get more from the government than they can from a job, they aren’t going to work.  ~ These people will always vote for whatever (anti-Republic) oligarch caters to their being ‘taken care of’ regardless of national interest.  Accountability and responsibility and thus, forming good choices, are CRITICAL to the Right to vote rather than any arbitrary ‘one man (or child), one vote’ scheme.  We need to limit the franchise to Citizens demonstrating such “responsibility” or the consequence, articulated by Alexander Fraser Tytler (and the US Army paraphrased above) will be: “A democracy (our Republic) cannot exist as a permanent form of government.”

Kamala Harris’ Illegal Candidacy

While the deep state shills try desperately to obfuscate the very simple question about Kamala Harris’ lawful ability to serve as VP none of their pronouncements can make her a compliant with our Constitution’s “natural born Citizen” clause ~ Art. 2, § 1, Cl. 5.  The term was defined, when our Constitution was written, in § 212 of The Law of Nations, the seminal work of Emmerich de Vattel.  That primary legal source defined it saying that in order to be a “natural born citizen,” as opposed to a “native born citizen” or a “naturalized citizen,” both of one’s parents must be, at the moment of the person’s birth, citizens of the country where the birth occurs.  This was confirmed in our Supreme Court (Minor vs. Happersett) when they said “all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens  Thus, since Kamala Harris’ mother, Shyamala Gopalan Harris, was a ‘Tamil Indian’, and her father a ‘Jamaican’ neither of which were ‘naturalized’ citizens  when she was born on October 20th 1964, she’s SOL.

Of course, were there ANY proof that the parents (both) were naturalized prior to her birth they could and would easily produce it.  Harris was born on October 20, 1964.  At that time her parents were not even “immigrants” to the United States, rather, they wer both here on student visas, and neither had applied for even ‘permanent U.S. residency’ until early 1967.  Permanent “residency” doesn’t mean they were ‘citizens’.  Hell, evidence of this is in a completed document Gopalan Harris filed with the INS to change her “nonimmigrant status” from “nonimmigrant student” to “nonimmigrant visitor.”  In 1985 Gopalan Harris sought to obtain an “immigrant visa” to return to the United States from Canada, but she needed a U.S.-citizen sponsor; Kamala filled that role just after her 21st birthday.

Her mother’s (and father’s) non citizenship status as late as 1985 (21 years after Harris’ birth) means she’s NOT a “natural born Citizen”.  Instead, they call this question/point a “conspiracy theory” and “a distraction”.  They say she’s “been a citizen since birth” (which is completely true ~ an “anchor baby”) which has nothing to do with the qualification required to serve as VP and/or President as a “natural born Citizen”.  They say she’s a citizen under “the 14th Amendment” which, again, has nothing to do with the qualification required to serve as VP and/or President as a “natural born Citizen”.  Indeed, the guy who wrote the 14th Amendment (John Bingham) defined the point via 3 requirements: “that you are born within the jurisdiction of the United States, that BOTH parents are citizens of the U.S. either by naturalization OR by being natural born themselves and that both parents must not owe any allegiance to any foreign country”

This is a cut and dry, black and white, question/answer ~ were Harris’ parents citizens at the time of her birth or not.  If not, once again, this candidacy, like Obama’s before her, is an utter mockery to our Constitution, our Laws and our country.

They let Obama get away with violating the exact same criteria (his father was a foreigner and NOT an American citizen) so they’ll whine about misogyny and racism in this case and they will get away with it again PROVING our ‘Laws’ mean nothing to the oligarchy running this country.  They ARE ANTIFA & BLM.  You though, better not run a Stop sign or not wear your required mask.  Just shut up, stop thinking, pay your taxes and do as you’re told.

Secession for New Hampshire and beyond

Back in 2010 I wrote a piece on New Hampshire seceding from the Federal union and it was published on the New Hampshire Executive Council’s web site.  Ten years have passed and we still have the seemingly endless federal screw-ups both domestically and in foreign policy.  We still have government official’s malfeasance accruing on daily basis that seems never to be prosecuted.  We have both parties (two sides of the same coin) actively working to subvert our Constitution and abrogating our Rights rather than any real fulfillment of their Oath of Office to “bear true faith” to the document that grants them the ‘limited’ authority to govern.  We have the leftists non-acceptance of the 2016 election result, their attempted soft coup by way of impeachment, their minions, embedded in the federal bureaucracy thwarting every attempt to not just rout them out but even govern.  Of late (summer 2020) the left’s shock troops, Black Lives Matter and the communist ATIFA terrorists demonstrating in major cities across our country over endlessly fabricated racial divisions, rioting, looting and initiating outright calls for violence.  Rather than putting down these insurrectionists we have LEOs and FLEAs standing down instead rounding them up as the domestic terrorists thus, they are insuring that this country becomes ungovernable in its current configuration.  Does anyone else (ANYONE?) see the handwriting on the wall here?  There is no “E pluribus unum” or “Out of many, one” anymore.  There is no “brotherhood~from sea to shining sea”, as was touted in the song ‘America the Beautiful’, anymore.  Those platitudes are no longer applicable here in the US; they’re gone now and quite likely gone for good.  Thus, responsible people need to start thinking about what comes next.  I honestly believe it’s time to, again, seriously consider what secession might mean to New Hampshire or some confederation of states from a practical (adults-in-the-room) standpoint.

Facts are, with the breakdown of any cohesive set of ‘national’ values, the breakdown of any semblance of real ‘national’ unity and after what we’ve watched with the leftist democrats manifesting after the 2016 election, there won’t be a peaceful transition of power when the other party wins some future Presidential election.  Just how many contested elections will the country go through before the anarchy we’re seeing today, in some of our cities, becomes the norm for ‘most’ of our cities?  The nations borders aren’t borders anymore by any definition used by modern nation states.  As such, illegals flow in with no end in sight.  Illegals are issued Driver’s Licenses in many states.  Illegals are allowed to vote, even hold political office in some places and our Senate votes to grant ‘illegals’ payments from your Social Security funds.  Many are beginning to see that ‘The Republic’, like Elvis, has left the building.  So, do we simply wait for the inevitable downfall of this country?  Maybe we wait for ‘a sign’ like a repeat of the sacking of Rome but only this time Washington DC?  No.  As responsible adults,  we need to start seriously exploring heading for the lifeboats.   Perhaps Maine, Vermont (God help us :-)) and western New York might go with us were we to put our heads together on a real ‘plan’.

The first hurdle before New Hampshire boards those lifeboats and flees the ‘union’ is something called “normalcy bias” which is very real, seemingly forcing you to remain asleep.  Wikipedia describes it thus:

“The normalcy bias, or normality bias, refers to a mental state people enter when facing a disaster. It causes people to underestimate both the possibility of a disaster occurring and its possible effects. The assumption that is made in the case of the normalcy bias is that since a disaster never has occurred then it never will occur. It also results in the inability of people to cope with a disaster once it occurs. People with a normalcy bias have difficulties reacting to something they have not experienced before. People also tend to interpret warnings in the most optimistic way possible, seizing on any ambiguities to infer a less serious situation.”

This causes a condition know as “cognitive dissonance”.  The theory of cognitive dissonance focuses on how humans strive for internal consistency and when inconsistency (dissonance) is experienced, individuals largely become psychologically distressed.  Dissonance is aroused when people are confronted with information that is inconsistent with their beliefs. Beliefs such as America is the ‘greatest country in the world’ while facts show America is far from the top of the lists when judged on such things as income, unemployment, levels of democracy, well-being, food security, life expectancy, prison population and student performance are demonstrably otherwise is an example of dissonance.  In fact, the United States is 33rd on the list of 33 countries falling below Portugal.  (  Beliefs such as folks have ‘Rights’ in America when the actions of the government, through the Laws they’ve passed, clearly show that essentially all the Rights articulated within our Constitution have been negated is an example of dissonance.  Beliefs such as our country always being ‘the good guys’ while seeing that our government overthrows more countries and bombs/murders civilians in more instances than any other nation on the planet since WW2 is an example of dissonance.  Beliefs such as ‘we’re a nation of Laws’ when our government refuses to enforce Laws against their sponsors or themselves while having twice the number of people behind bars than the dictatorship of Communist China who has four times America’s population is an example of dissonance.  This ‘dichotomy’ between beliefs and the real world you’re living in causes the normalcy bias and cognitive dissonance.  The dissonance forces those experiencing it to misperceive the clear evidence of what they’re seeing, to reject the obvious interpretation of what they’re seeing and to refute the information that’s presented relative the real world or those who point out these facts.  Thus, we refuse to wake up from the far more pleasant dream rather than deal with the unfortunate reality of our house (America) burning down around us.  This pattern of behavior does NOT change the realities that face us, unfortunately.

To put it in perspective, imagine you’re ensconced in your home, fast asleep and enjoying a wonderful dream.  For whatever reason a fire starts and your home is becoming engulfed.  Would you hope you might awaken and respond to impending threat to your family and yourself or would you prefer to remain asleep enjoying that dream(normalcy bias & cognitive dissonance)?  That’s the state of the current united States today.

Normalcy bias makes you want to imagine some America from the Andy Griffith show but with hi-tech.  Yeah, we have some problems but everything will work out ~ it always does, right?  Instead, our reality is that the ruling class (our political leadership) of this country can best be summed up rather nicely in a fictional work ‘The Liar’ by Bobby Adair when he said:  …all of those politicians worked for anonymous American oligarchs and the mega-corps anyway. Elections and the endless news cycles packed between them had long ago ceased being the conduit through which self-governance flowed from the masses. Elections were a nationwide coliseum with a bloody floor spread from shore to shore, pitting every citizen against his neighbors so none of them would ever see that the hero politicians they rallied behind weren’t truly their choice, and weren’t going to Washington to do their work.  All those gray-haired fat men and loudmouthed faux patriots, kowtowing to a flag they’d draft-dodged their way out of fighting for, were either ring-kissing tools beholden to their deep-pocketed patrons, or eventually would be. That was what the evolved disease of American-style democracy did—it twisted idealists into narrow-minded blabbermouths who forgot every reason they ever picked up a mic and stood starry-eyed in front of their neighbors sincerely promising to make lives better.  Essentially our country’s leadership (such that it is) seems in lock-step with the popular legend of Emperor Nero fiddling while Rome burned. 

Hell, these clowns currently running this country can’t even figure out what bathroom to use, which doesn’t surprise me in the least since these same bozos, having seized the Mustang Ranch, (for back taxes in 1999) a legally licensed whorehouse in Nevada, found, with all the government’s expertise, they couldn’t even run a profitable brothel so had to sell it for pennies on the dollar.  With this continuing, there simply won’t be any America left and, contrary to what the addled ‘nationalist’ idealists believe, this won’t be ‘fixed’ with the next election, or the next, or the next.  In fact, a new poll, just released in October (2019), conducted by Georgetown University’s Institute of Politics and Public Service finds that 7 in 10 Americans believe the country is nearing civil war.  It’s survey found that 67% of Americans think the nation is on the way to such a scenario.  According to the Institute’s executive director, Mo Elleithee, “The majority of Americans believe that we are two-thirds of the way to being on the edge of civil war.

So, beyond waking up to the fact that everything ‘isn’t’ alright in the neighborhood and that that awareness can not be ignored indefinitely, what other hurdles remain?  Primarily one of those hurdles would be food.  Can a state (New Hampshire) or a group of states feed its population without asking for support from the emerging third world state it broke away from?  Another would be how do we keep the lights on ~ power our power generation industry?  Clearly we would need to create an independent power grid (as Texas did) so we wouldn’t be subject to economic and physical blackmail by the states (or the federal elephant in the room) around us.  How do we keep them fueled?  How many are oil fired vs biomass power plants and what are the outputs and what to we do with Seabrook generating 57% of the state’s power in 2018?  How do we handle foreign ownership of New Hampshire businesses.  At what rates would we tax foreign owned business versus New Hampshire owned businesses?  How do our citizens purchase imported gasoline and oil pr other stuff?  Would we tax foreign and/or dual nationals an income tax on revenue earned in New Hampshire (I would)?  How do we handle points of entry?  (Airports/roads/ports)  A good read might be:  What about currency & foreign exchange rates?

All these points (and many more) would greatly benefit from some moderated discussion.  Expert opinions might be garnered, solicited and shared.  Through feedback and discussion, policy positions might be formulated and honed.  In this way a true process of ‘educating’ the public on the benefits of independence and sovereignty might take place and support for the cause be earned.  The ‘discussions’ need to take place to prove to possible supporters or interested individuals that independence is possible.

If you’re willing to write a thoughtful, in-depth opinion on these hurdles or other subjects relating to going off on our own, I’m willing to put them up for all to read and respond to.  I would either keep identities confidential or quote you directly were you not bashful about stating such opinions.  Your call…  In any event, I’ll add to this piece, as time permits, some of my thoughts on what might need to be ‘thought out’ further but, I look forward to hearing from you.


20.06.25 posted ~ CURRENCY:  First thing many are going to concern themselves with (beyond their next ham sandwich) is ‘money’.  They want/intend to keep what they have and make more so, how might the New Hampshire Republic carry out a transition from the debt certificates of the US ‘federal reserve bank’ and a real indigenous currency?  This subject needs to be worked on by smarter people than me.  Perhaps someone who understands the mess that Keynesian economics has gotten the US & world into financially and Ludwig von Mises’ Austrian School of economic theory.  (Keynesian equals “spending drives economic growth” vs Austrian equals “savings and production drives economic growth.)

New Hampshire would establish a state bank like the Bank of North Dakota (established in 1919) to promote agriculture, commerce and industry in the state just as the BND does.  Regulations would be adopted for the (initial) creation of credit needed by the state (which is known as ‘sovereign credit’ ~ to carry out its functions, just as the US Constitution authorizes the Treasury to create money rather than “borrow” it from private banks, at interest (federal reserve) and, said bank would offer reasonable interest (return on investment) to its depositors.  Imagine for a moment our state bank (the Bank of New Hampshire) offering 5% interest on savings and 2% interest on checking accounts.  Almost every dime in New Hampshire’s private banking system earning less the 1% return on investment would flow to the state bank and thus a huge pool of loanable capital would be available to promote agriculture, commerce and industry in the state.

I would envision the conversion of US dollars to New Hampshire greenbacks (we’ll make up a neat and catchy name for them later) to be on a one-to-one basis for assets and responsibilities (paychecks) within the state.  All US debt notes would be converted through the Bank of New Hampshire to New Hampshire greenbacks and the debt notes would be used by the state to source materials needed by New Hampshire in the US until a recognized exchange agreement was in place with our neighbor.  The goal, of course, is an economy free from foreign (out-of-state) capital.

Imagine New Hampshire needed a couple of food/produce plants for processing locally raised/grown produce.  The state’s bank would fund the construction, staffing and start-up of the facilities.  These facilities could be private enterprise or a mix of private/state ownership (say 80/20 split) in which case, the more industries the state developed, the larger it’s revenue stream from the derived profits it could count on (independent of ‘taxes’) to further fund state government operations.  Now imagine the state funding the development of private/state ownership of a refinery, or the construction and operation of ‘greenhouse’ farms for continued food production during inclement weather or anything else the state doesn’t have (currently) that would further self-sustaining itself and its Citizens.

Again, smarter people than I should hone the subject of finance & currency because I’ve never passed a math course in my life.


20.06.28 posted ~ FOOD:

I’m no farmer, just a committed meat & potatoes guy so a big question is can we feed the projected 1.35 million (2020) people in New Hampshire.   I’m ‘guessing’ we have the agricultural acreage to support our population (and then some). What’s needed to be developed locally is (as mentioned above) the processing facilities to can it, freeze it & get it on the grocery shelves.  Sure, for a while, we may have to do without our Honey Nuts & Oats cereal until we get our foreign exchange off the ground but hey, you’ll have to ‘cook’ your kids bacon & eggs or pancakes with (local) maple syrup for breakfast – what a trauma… but it’s the price of Liberty. self reliance & self determination.

The fact is, New Hampshire’s Department of Agriculture’s site, states: “Some 4,100 individual operations qualify as commercial farms in New Hampshire, managing 425,000 acres including crop, pasture, maple and Christmas tree production, conservation and other agricultural uses.”  The individual farms figure was ‘up’ from 2004 where there were only 3,363 farms recorded in New Hampshire who’s land totaled 444,879 acres 59% was woodlands, 30% cropland and 11% “other uses”.  According to the NH Farm Flavor site New Hampshire agriculture has “around 4,400 farms, each about 100 acres in size, produce a variety of crops in the Granite State. Both milk and greenhouse/nursery crops account for more than half of the state’s agricultural sales receipts. Livestock includes cattle, sheep, hogs and poultry. Hay is largely grown in support of livestock. Maple syrup production is strong, too, with New Hampshire producing 4 percent of U.S. maple syrup.  According to the state “New Hampshire ranks 48th nationally for agricultural exports.”

Were we setting a goal of relying on ourselves to feed New Hampshire rather than relying on those trucks rolling in from New Jersey or other states, farmland, right here, would become far more valuable overnight.  Food producers would be critical employers overnight and food processing facilities (Stand Alone Industries) would become hugely profitable employers overnight.  A good source of information (or to find someone with a clue on this subject) would be Food Solutions New England University of New Hampshire, Office of Sustainability 107 Nesmith Hall, 131 Main Street in Durham.  The short story is that yes, we could feed our population.  Were Maine (and/or Vermont) to join us in our exit from the “union” there would be a huge comfort zone regarding feeding the new Republic.   



With all its flaws, Seabrook produces almost all the needed electricity in the state.  The trick would be to generate that level of electricity more safely.  Given the fact the 2016 (government) figures show that 17% of electricity generated in New Hampshire was from renewable resources. It immediately makes you ask what we might do to increase that.  Small, private hydroelectric facilities as well as whatever alternate (solar) energy systems folks or the state) wanted to (privately) invest in and REQUIRE the electric distributor (these days Eversource but later could be a state & private consortium) to buy back unused energy generated by these private systems at 65% of retail value rather than the pittance they now offer us.  Property tax incentives/credits could be offered to prompt such investment ~ who wouldn’t invest five or ten grand in a personal/private renewable energy system if the amount they invested came right off their property taxes?

Solar panels can be manufactured right here in New Hampshire ~ it’s not rocket science.  (a DYI guide: or  How to get the manufacturing off the ground?  How to start up a major producer of such panels within New Hampshire?


New Hampshire technology firms could be offered state tax incentives for producing ‘components’  for and assembly of solar arrays.  Those arrays might be deployed anywhere there’s open space owned or controlled by the state.  Ponder the essentially wasted space over median strips of our state highways which is open to the sky as just one spot for deployment of the arrays and tying them to the grid.  State investment in manufacturing said arrays means the state getting the return on investment.  Sales of the array’s output would go into the state coffers.

Imagine all the electronics assembly outfits in the state ( assembling ‘some’ solar arrays for the state and getting tax credits as a result.  They could decide how much of their production to dedicate to this effort.  Said production could ‘fill’  any gaps from the usual work they support for their client base.  Imagine a local outfit like Dover Flexo Electronics, Acculex Components (and others) accepting state contracts for inverters and other controllers to manage solar arrays.  Again, they could be compensated via tax credits or NH issued currency and would reflect production being an adjunct to their current/existing business.

Then there’s micro-hydro turbines.  A real interesting outfit/technology which (I think) would be perfect for use in New Hampshire is Waterotor out of Canada. (  Raging in size from that of an SUV to a home size unit that could fit in an SUV this technology seem tailor made for our state given the number of slow moving rivers all over the place in the Granite State and, from what I gather, a one kilowat unit replaces 125 barrels of diesel oil in generating electricity.  How many of these could be dropped in the Connecticut River or any other New Hampshire river or stream ( with a flow rate as slow as 2 mph?  That could make a dent.  (  

Another outfit producing inexpensive turbines for small river deployment is Smart Hydro out of Germany (  I’m sure there are a bunch of similar firms but here’s an interesting vid worth watching of one of their units.  This thing costs only twelve thousand Euros or $13,500 dollars and powers three homes 24/7.  (  Something this inexpensive with the rivers and streams all over New Hampshire would certainly significantly augment power to our grid.
