A Different World

IMG_2220I remember a world that was far different from the world I woke up in this morning. I remember parades in every town great or small, and not just Christmas, or New Year’s Day. I remember the flag being waved, not stomped. I remember a time, a time when the expression, “Write your congressman” wasn’t the worn out punch line to a tired old joke. I remember a man who would never turn his back on the need to defend his country against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and those who swore that oath forswore themselves. And I was that man. I wrote an article, not long ago, No Taxation Without Representation, that got me to wondering. Did I have the courage to do a thing that was once patriotic, but now illegal? Indeed, there were times when people had to make the choice to do something that is patriotic and illegal. It has been a terrible few weeks because the more I thought about it, the more I see how our government has been closing off all the rational approaches to patriotism. I produce media that I hope will arouse others to patriotism, but up until today I’ve been unable to honestly say where the line between talk and action is.  A time where the love of country is considered lies! What happened is I woke up today, and I didn’t know that it would be a day much different than those days that have come to represent how different the world has become. I rose, I prayed, I drank coffee as I checked the News Feeds, and my email. I shaved, bathed and dressed, and finally I offered up an extra prayer, as I often do on those days when I find myself among such people of our still great nation, who still have enough red blood in them to meet unbidden to discuss freedom. What made today different is that I saw someone different than most of us. Someone who does not wonder what they will do for their country, and for our freedom, even if we don’t celebrate their sacrifice. A true heroine, not in uniform, not strong of limb or a leader of troops, but rather a little girl. Small in stature, but with the courage of a child raised to believe that she is as good as anyone, and the conviction of a child wrongly orphaned. A few precious moments with her restored me to that time I thought long gone. It wasn’t such a different world after all.  Back when we were all in this thing together. I’ll say no more, for what else is there to say? I saw a little girl today. A girl whose father was cut down on national television in front of all of us, yet whose voice has not been stilled! If you, too, what has become of your world, indeed, of your own lives and spirits, if you do not like this different world in which we live, join me in supporting that little girl!

Scared

IMG_0091

Scared. I want ya’ll to write that down ‘cause there’s gonna be a quiz later. Scared dictates a lot of things that people do. I’ve said it before, and I’m gonna say it again, Texas is in fact a republic, a “de-facto” republic. Back in World War II just because Hitler invaded France, and put his troops in there, that did not mean that France was not a republic. France was a republic under occupation. Texas has been under occupation since 1865. We had special laws passed against us because they thought that our ability to carry a gun might lead back to the Republic of Texas. They have been scared of us in America ever since.

The scared part comes in like when we show up down in Austin to do these rallies with speakers driving in, and you get down there, and you get thirty-five or forty people. We’re all sitting around wondering well, what’s going on here?  What’s going on is people are scared. Right now at the Republican convention in Texas there is going to be an effort to put in a plank on the platform to ask how many people would like the opportunity to vote and voice their opinion of the secession issue. Now, I’d like to point out you can call us “nuts” or “fringe” but four years ago they wouldn’t let us in the door, and now we’re in the door, and actually going to have a vote.

The general population, getting up and going to work every morning is not thinking about seceding from the United States, they don’t even understand it, but you would think that with a rally in Austin that they’d show up just to see what we look like, see what’s going on, but the problem is that they’re scared. This is what’s happened in the United States. Waco, Ruby Ridge, things like that have put people on point. Where ten or twenty years ago you’d see a Department of Public Safety officer walking around the grounds you’d think nothing about it, he’s supposed to be there, but now, with the events of the last two to four years attitudes have changed and people are scared. Take your average nerd in Austin on a Saturday with nothing to do, and hears there’s going to be a rally at the Capitol and they wonder what’s going on. Now, if it’s a bunch of Mexicans dancing they run down and join the party, but if it’s a bunch of Texas Nationalists giving speeches about seceding, well, they get scared. No one wants to show up and watch the arrests, and all the other nonsense that goes with them.

But, Texas is a republic. Just because we’re occupied doesn’t mean it’s not. We’re beginning to act like a republic with things like our gold bullion, our emphasis on our borders, and our attracting people to Texas. We have to protect our borders, the United States doesn’t give a flip. The droves of people coming here because of the quality of life, the climate, and economic factors opinions are being formed. When someone first gets here they think that Texas is just like any other state, but it’s not, it is a functioning republic.

Will we be able to secede? No. I don’t think that short of an armed conflict that the United States will ever let us secede from the Union. Can we in fact be a different part? Well, we in fact are. Texas is different. Ruby Ridge, Waco, and LaVoy Finicum have reminded us that the government will do anything to maintain power. Ignore the constitution, ambush, burn, anything. I was watching last night as an engineer explained how the top fifteen floors on the World Trade Center could not possibly collapse the entire building. On another video I saw building seven erupt in explosions as it, too, pancaked to the ground, and that, people, is the length your government will go to in order to maintain power. There are sinister elements within the American Federal government, and those sinister elements are there to maintain power.

Texas, believing that borders matter, all borders, even those between us and the US, and that is a stumbling block to those who would erase those borders in their quest for a new world government. Texas has more oil than all other counties in the world combined except Russia. We’ve got cattle, tech, climate, people, economics, and God knows we have all the Mexicans, and that is a big stumbling block for the power brokers in New York and Washington. They want to infiltrate Texas and turn it into “CalTex.” California was a beautiful place, beautiful people, everybody wanted to be there. These same people who have set their sights on Texas went in there, and it’s still a beautiful place, but it’s not California anymore. It’s a joke now. Texas has a way of sitting back, watching someone screw up, and making sure that we don’t go down that same path.

We are not a bunch of rednecks, or fools. We have education, people, resources, enterprise, we have all these things in Texas! If you want to know how stout we are, how’d that Ebola work out for you? The world was coming to an end, the religious nuts were citing the Book of Revelation, and all of the sudden there weren’t no more Ebola! That’s because it came to Texas.

But, people are scared. The fact is that if ten thousand people showed up at a rally in Austin then the power brokers would be scared. You can arrest a man, but you can’t arrest a battalion. Power is inherent in the people! If you have a bunch of people saying this is the way it is then that’s the way it is! The power flows up from the people. This enema called the American Federal Government is an inversion of the way the constitution was laid out.

It’s not going to be easy. There will be more Ruby Ridges, there will be more LaVoy Finicums, but one day those people will show up, and then the illuminati will be scared. We Texans have proved two things of the last two hundred years or so. We are the people who will back up in an old church and shoot at you, and we can’t count to five thousand.

The Two Weeks That Were

I missed my weekly summary last week because I was on the road so this is the TWO weeks that were. I’m up in Utah for a week or two, and I’m getting plugged into the climate, both weather wise and political. My sinuses cleared up. God, I hope I’m not allergic to Texas. I touched on something yesterday, and I’m going to start off there. In Them and Us I tried to tie in the common interests of Utah and Texas, which are profound. Brigham Young was a lot like Donald Trump. Now, the man had his ways, but he took a group of people and struck out for the desert to found a nation, and a culture, and like Texas, the LDS people are clinging to their heritage. My message was, “We are with you. You are not alone.”

Guns, Glory, and Midgets was in response to some fool who went after me on gun control. This guy was a classic, and I just couldn’t put him away. This is a real danger, people. These people are out there, and they make kids! I can’t believe that a man who thinks like this has the brain cells to power a heart and liver, but I’m not a doctor. Talk about zombie. Here it is, I say HERE IT IS!

Suspicious was actually three ideas that came together that was sent to me by Kate Beecham, Casey Nunez, and Teddy Bear. I began to see a common denominator and tied them up with a pretty bow.

The Law of the Jungle was in answer to the current rage of protesting Donald Trump’s rallies. Was it racist enough for ya? Hey, Ah’m from TEXAS, and I don’t buy into Political Correctness one little bit.

Ain’t No Run When The Rabbit’s Got The Gun was after I watched LaVoy Finicum’s daughter wipe her nose and talk about her daddy. God! I love that  kid! If you ever have any doubt about what we are up against just pull your head out of Mr. Butt, and look this little girl in the face.

Dramatic New Footage From Oregon. One picture is worth a thousand words, and this was the one picture that clearly shows a government that is out of control. The cell phone footage from inside the SUV in Oregon shows terrified people, a useless attack, and a man that was no threat to the officers. Finicum was on his way to a sheriff. Why were the Oregon State Police, and FBI so scared of a sheriff?

The Enemy Within dispels the myth of Carlos the friendly orange picker. Our borders are under attack. No other country in the world puts up with what we have going on down there, and the administration tries to make Americans who scream about it look like a bunch of irrational fanatics. Point of fact: ONE Mexican got over the White House fence and almost shut down the government. If you go to the Texas border you’d think you were at the Alamo. Yet again, Trump is on point, and keeps sticking that point to the government time, and time again.

As a complimentary piece San Jacinto Redux puts flesh on the bones of illegal immigration. My man in the street, Teddy Bear, has identified the organized effort to place not orange pickers, but soldiers in place, all over America, for the day when they rise up, with the help of the UN, and take over the country. Scary stuff if you’re not a Texan. Houston knew the remedy for the Alamo, and we know the one for this.

Thought I’d give a little lesson in politics so I wrote See Ted Run. Simple piece, really, with a simple message. Since this article, Rubio dropped out, and Cruz is jockeying for a VP slot. Times sure change fast.

Think I can’t be Politically Correct, or sanitize a piece?  I wanted so BAD to call this one Super Tuesday and Hand Jobs, but opted for Super Tuesday and Hand SIZES. No wonder the Democrats laugh at us.

Man! I didn’t even know there WAS still a KKK until I wrote David Duke. Fact: If there is still a Klan the members have to show up in their wheel chairs and oxygen, but, they still scare the pants off of “some” people. All in all, this was a dirty trick by the Dems to discredit Trump just like the guys in sheets photographed holding Trump signs. You remember those guys. The ones with the black hands?

Even though I’m not a practicing Catholic anymore I still feel the need for confession and Arrested For Driving While Blind was it. I’d love to say I made this article up, but fact is I held back because I want to continue to work for the Trib.

And that was the weeks that were. I’m on vacation, but I’ll be back in Texas soon. Hopefully the politicians will continue to provide me with subjects to expound on, and the price of whiskey doesn’t go up too much. Ya’ll be cool. Peace out!

Them and Us

MISTY

Them and us. Remember that, there’ll be a quiz later. Ask yourself, what do Stephen F. Austin and Brigham Young have in common?  What led the Mormons to the Salt Lake Valley was partly religious persecution, and partly a bad case of “Them and Us.” As a Texan, I can understand who “them” were. They were Americans, or the facsimile thereof. Brigham Young picked the most God awful place you could imagine. A lake you can’t drink, weather you have to endure, and inhabitants who didn’t want you there. All this, and the Mormons clawed an existence out of the desert that rivaled San Francisco.

Now, my regular readers know what I think of organized religion, but I shall summarize. We all have a “God Hole” in our head, and something has to fill it. I fill mine with whiskey, but some folks just gotta have ritual, rules, holy this and holy that, and that’s ok if it makes them feel good. Brother Young used the God Hole to keep the faithful on the straight and narrow, because in the high desert if you weren’t on the straight and narrow you’d find yourself under the sand in no time. In short, it worked. What happens in this country when a group of people find a system that works? Well, the Americans come and steal it, that’s what. “Manifest Destiny is just another term for non-consensual sex. In due time the army was dispatched to put the Mormons in their place. The Civil War intervened and eventually the LDS people traded surplus wives for statehood, got “Deseret” trimmed down to size and you have the Utah we see today. Still, from the Mormon point of view, them and us.

The Mormons have a very tight culture, and there is a difference between Mormon culture, and Mormon religion. After years of persecution, they are very suspicious of “them.” As they cling to their civilization they see the edges crumbling all around them, and they struggle to hold it together. If you will note, the Americans did not come calling until after Salt Lake City was built, and the industrious Mormons had turned a profit at the instructions of their “prophet.” Them never builds, they steal from us. Now, let’s move on.

Now, let’s take a trip to Texas. Again, bunch of people went to a hell of a place, carved out a life, fought a war, joined the “Union,” got trimmed down to size, and then it was them and us. Texas got a bigger screwing than Utah in that it was occupied under rules of defeat until C. J. Grisham mounted the Capitol steps in Austin and waved his gun at the governor, all legal, breaking the hold of the 1871 law forbidding Texans to protect themselves. Texas has an organized nationalist movement, a militia, a government in place for the republic, oil, cattle, tech, seaport, and all the Mexicans. Utah is different. Utah has no secession movement, no organization, and no “national” identity, but it does have a firm, family oriented foundation, and that puts them directly opposed to the American system of today, emphasizing them and us!

It is not what America was founded on, but what it has become that makes it an abomination to Mormons. And this is creeping into the state. Salt Lake City has a gay mayor. Just think about that. In a place where people don’t even drink coffee they have a pervert for a mayor. That tells you something about demographics. There are more perverts in Salt Lake City than there are Temple Mormons. Texas began the slide some time ago. Houston had a perv running the city, so we can’t talk, but Texas does have a solid core. Ask Wendy Davis how talking up abortion to a bunch of Mexican Catholics worked out for her in the last election.

Utah, and Texas have something in common. . . them and us. We have all been screwed by the Americans, or rather the perversion of America as we had come to understand it. In the ruins of Deseret and the Republic of Texas there is a remnant. Guess who speaks directly to that remnant? Donald Trump, because he, too, believes in America. He’s one of “us.”  Remember the Southern Strategy I told you about some time back? Well, just switch that to “Western Strategy.” You see the Trump train rides on the rails of righteous anger. The outrage of the people who are sick and tired of what “them” are doing to “us.”

And it doesn’t matter what the religion is. The right to run your own business, your state, have your family safe, your border secure, and know that you won’t get shot for trying to drive to the sheriff’s office is important to these people. To have a culture where it means something to be a member of a church, have no abortion clinics in town, no vets homeless while illegals collect welfare. . . those things mean something, and that’s what Trump is pounding home. Have you noticed that every time one of his rallies is protested by “them” there are suddenly more of “us” supporting Mr. Trump? His message just becomes louder. DUDES! He’s a New York real estate broker, he doesn’t care about your religion, unless you’re a Muslim, and frankly I agree with him.

It’s not just Texas and Utah. Practically every part of the nation has people who have struggled to make a better life for our kids only to have it taken from us to given to them. Them and us. Interesting note: During Jade Helm 15 both Utah, and Texas were designated “Hostile.” Jus’ sayin’. Also interesting in that the first blood to be shed in this fight was the blood of a Mormon, LeVoy Finicum. There is more to come.

We must all rally to Donald Trump’s call. We must stand with him. The Republican leadership will steal the nomination if they can. Utah, and Texas, and all real Americans need to double down, and get Trump nominated, and then show Hillary the door. Make America Great Again! Mr. Trump is taking attacks from all sides, and it’s all spin and lies because “them” knows that if he wins, “us” wins, and they can’t have that. That’ll be the end of the world bankers controlling congress, of the BLM stealing land, or the illegal immigrant welfare express and the insidious occupation of the New World Order. It will be the reinstatement of America. The America envisioned by the founding fathers, and cherished by “us.” Let’s show “them” the door.

Oh, what did Austin and Young have in common? Two things; they knew how to organize a nation, and they were both in real estate. So much for Rubio’s little crack about this not being a real estate deal. Like I said, it is a real estate deal. . . it’s called America! And America belongs to us, not them!

Ain’t No Fun When The Rabbit’s Got The Gun

img_2220

Ain’t no fun when the rabbit’s got the gun. Today I was humbled by a little lady on a video. Tean Fiinicum, LaVoy’s daughter, giving a talk about our country, her father, and her legacy. Her request was simple. She asked America to stand with her, and if it doesn’t then she will stand, and die alone. Someone else made this same call from a crumbling adobe church years ago. “If this call is neglected, I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible & die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor & that of his country”

With all the discussion about LaVoy Finicum’s death we have overlooked one simple thing. It has now become business as usual to kill citizens, white or black, and the courts will always justify it, and ignore the constitution. The government has now become the master, and we the serfs, hoping that King Fed will just not take our property today, and not kill us for driving down the road. Let’s do some math. There are more of us than there are them! And it’s funny that we are a nation of laws only when it is convenient to the Fed. “They right of the people,” is ignored by the Supreme Court, but the right to shoot anyone at any time for any reason is upheld, and upheld, and upheld.

Taking that building in Burns, Oregon was a stupid thing to do. Staying at the Alamo was stupid, too, but sometimes someone has to show us what will happen when you deal with an out of control tyrannical government. Think about it. One building. They took one building to make a point. Why didn’t the FBI simply seal it off and wait for them to run out of food and charges on their cell phones? I’ll tell you why. Any resistance to the machine will be met by force. That’s why! I’m not going to go over the shooting again, I’ve done it many times, but I will say all the law enforcement (and I use that term loosely) had to do was follow Finicum to the sheriff. What were they so scared of? Why did they not want him to go to the sheriff. If he were such an outlaw, then the sheriff would have put him in jail. Never heard of Billy the Kid running to the county jail. Have you?

Miss Finicum calls for us to put down our differences and stand with her. Naturally about 100,000 keyboard commandos chimed in and said they would. Ok, let’s talk “Killeen” homies. This thing is going down! I watched a slow motion video last night that clearly shows Mr. Finicum being fired upon before he leaves his SUV. That’s why he was shouting, “Just go ahead and shoot me!” He knew the deal! He understood what was at stake, and accepted the all. He crossed the line in the sand!

The Fed has been out of control so long that the rules of engagement have been changed. We are not the people anymore; we are the enemy. That is why we have to keep our hands on the wheel when stopped for running a traffic light. That’s why we put up our hands when an officer approaches. That why we get beat up when we quote the constitution. Free speech zones? Give me a break! Bonnie and Clyde got a better deal than LaVoy Finicum.

There is going to be a rise of resistance in America. Texas will lead. Texas always has. From the Alamo to Waco, always remember that we are the folks that will hole up in a church and shoot at you! LaVoy crossed Travis’s line, and the Mexicans are over the wall. Fellas, it’s time to put the mouse down, and pick the constitution up. I can’t get that young lady’s eyes out of my mind. Ain’t no fun when the rabbit’s got the gun!

 

DRAMATIC NEW FOOTAGE FROM OREGON

IMG_2152

There is dramatic new footage from Lavoy Finicum’s SUV coming out of the Bundy Ranch site today. It’s not on YouTube, but you can catch it here on FaceBook. Watch it quick because as soon as FaceBook realizes it is patriotic they’ll pull it. I mentioned it also here. You should review my original Tribune article on this in “No Gun In The Snow.” That will catch you up with my ideas when this story first broke. All that’s happened now is this new footage shows that, yet again, I’m right. Just me and Rush Limbaugh, and it’s lonely up here. Anyway, where was I? Oh yes, the cell phone video coming from the occupants of the SUV proves out every single point I made previous to this. So, let’s recount some facts, shall we?

LaVoy was stopped by the cops on a lonely Oregon road. Some say it was the FBI, others the Oregon State Police, could have been the dog catcher, I don’t know, but he was stopped. They waited around about four minutes while the fuzz pulled their heads out of their collective butts, and then the vehicle takes off. Now, on the surface, from the drone, this looks like he disobeyed a lawful order, but when the audio from the new footage is synced you very quickly see that Mr. Finicum simply ran out of patience with the Keystone Cops, and drove away. He verbally announced that he was headed about fifty miles down the road to talk with a sheriff. As we all know, he did a dodge of a road block, and ended up in a snow bank. If you look at the drone footage you see Lavoy exit the truck, raise his hands, retract his hands, and then goes down. FBI official story. Now, remember, there’s the truth, the spin, and the “Fishy” story. The fishy on this is Mr. Finicum was pulling a gun and the men in black were in fear for their lives, sitting there waiting in ambush in a location where no cell towers existed.

From the air it looks like he is laying there dead while the boys in blue stumble around in the snow like a flock of fools, but when tied with the new audio you clearly hear the real deal. First, you hear Mr. Finicum angrily telling the cops to “Just shoot me!” After he hits the ground you hear the bullets hitting the car from the perspective of the occupants inside. For the longest time there is a spaced assault on the vehicle, and you can actually hear the impact of the bullets. KaThunk, KaThunk, KaThunk! All the while the people inside are screaming, crying and praying. Finally, the cops pull the old, “Get out with your hands up,” and “Get up.  . . get down. . . get all around,” and by the grace of God no one else got killed.

Ok, back to basics. No gun! If Lavoy had a gun in his pocket it was of no danger to the officers. If he did draw it, and was hit by fire from one or more of the cops, it only stands to reason that the gun would have ended up very visible in the snow. Blue steel against white does that, you know. Every “HomeBoy” I ever saw shot by the cops while holding a gun slung it onto the parking lot, or wherever they happened to be at the time. This was a clear assassination, but here’s the skinny.

There are rouge cops today who kill whomever they wish, and their justification is, “Well, I had bullets in my gun!” They are in fear for their lives, our lives, the dog’s life, everyone’s life. I hate to drag in my time worn example of Wyatt Earp, but no matter what you might think, he was in a full-fledged gun fight, with bullets flying by his head when Ike Clanton charged him yelling that he was unarmed, and Wyatt did not shoot him. Neither did Doc Holiday either, and Doc was “wired,” but, they weren’t trained law enforcement, they were just gunslingers.

So, why was the fuzz so pent up about a bunch of people taking over a rest stop in a shutdown park in the winter? I won’t back away from my original article The Not So OK Corral. I didn’t think that we Texas Nationalists should get involved with a bunch of Yankees fighting over a bathroom. We’re forging a nation, not hugging trees down here. And, we’ve done this before! Before Texas was a state it was a republic. Oregon was just land. But, that having been said, Mr. LaVoy Finicum meant what he said, did what he did, and went down for his cause. I’m not going to be explicit here, but if you draw a circle from Salt Lake City, to Burns, Oregon, down to about Arizona, and back up through Denver, ending at Salt Lake City, you’ll roughly have a place called Deserette. Those who have ears, let them hear! What do LaVoy Finicum, Harry Reid, Mitt Romney, and Cliven Bundy have in common? They’re the boys that don’t drink no Folgers. Jus’ Sayin’. Maybe the FBI saw a little more in that SUV than one old man and some freaked out girls. Maybe they saw a little “even up,” just like the see when they look at Texas. Well, I have a little message for the Fed. If you add Deserette to the original borders of the Republic of Texas that leaves you BROOKLYN! Better start swimming or you’ll sink like a stone because times they are a changing! History lesson over, ring the bell.

No Gun In The Snow

I have been studying the Oregon events extensively all weekend. Even as I began this article the situation in Burns is still unfolding, and frankly, it’s starting to smell a lot like Waco. Let’s look at the beginning. The Constitution, through the Property Clause, specifically gives the government the power to own land. The Supreme Court has ruled that the government ownership is legal, indeed even expanding the control of said land. The government has taken this idea and ran with it, owning up to eighty-one percent of the land in Nevada. In a word, this is obnoxious, legal, or not. Combined with that, the Government is a terrible neighbor and landlord. They allow tenants to use the and for a century, and then change the rules in midstream. I’m going to shock you. No matter what the constitution says, by and by Brer Government gonna be where it wanna be! The issue is power.

The Bundy’s got into a big urinating contest with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) over the rights of cattle vs turtles. Now, as a Texan, I can’t connect the dots, but out in Nevada I suppose that means something. Cliven Bundy got Elsie back, and that situation rocked along. Nothing was settled except we discovered that the BLM could count, and when the militia showed up, in a brilliant stroke, they decided to bring the cows home, and take off to the office for donuts. Then along came Burns, Oregon.

Now, I’m a Texan, and I’m writing as a Texan, so you outlanders just bear with me. I’ve never been to Burns, but I’ve been through Oregon, and I didn’t see anything worth stealing. Seems like the whole state is some kind of National Park full of tree huggers. I’ve never hugged a tree, but who am I, right? I understand that some birds make a pit stop in Burns, and that’s the reason for the refuge. In Texas we just Bar B Q the birds, but I digress. Anyway, a group of men decided to take command of some building that to me looked like one of those receptions centers you get on the side of the road, compete with coffee and phones. I suppose since it was in winter business was slow, so there wasn’t much resistance for the initial assault.

I’m going to be honest, when this happened I thought it was like the movie, “Viva Max,” where a disgruntled Mexican General took over the Alamo. Nobody was hurt, nothing was stolen, and the local sheriff refused to get involved. About the only thing that seemed to be around to watch the “Battle of Burns,” were a few bears, and they didn’t protest much. Now, just think about that. I’m gonna be blunt here. A few crazy men take over a rest stop and declare ownership. So what? In a sane, democratic country, people would just laugh, and wait until spring. Quite frankly, when the beer ran out, they’d run out. (Swat them bees.) Important note: an oppressive government cannot tolerate dissention. When people do that they begin to challenge the authority of the government, and that’s something that simply cannot be in any amount. That’s because when people do that it opens a Constitutional Pandora’s box, and that nasty ol’ Bill of Rights comes seeping out, and, well, you know. Next thing you know the whole country turns democratic and the politicians lose their jobs, along with the BLM, the FBI, the ATF, and all the other “F’rs” out there on the government teat.

Now what the militia did wrong was the cavalier nature of their occupation. Apparently, Mr. Finicum was returning from a speaking engagement when he was pulled over in a felony road block. That’s right, speaking engagement. The Feds were mad as a bunch of old wet hens, and the guys doing the occupation were tripping around giving lectures. This is an over simplification, I know, but that was the stage that was set.

Let me tell you about government employees. They’re lazy, stupid, and can’t find jobs in the private sector. Is there anything I missed? Oh, yeah, they like to shoot people. So, here we have the Tree Hugger Army, holed up in a rest stop, with the government swarming all over the place. Let’s examine the FBI, shall we. I’ve seen all the “Forensic Files,” crap, ok. Some gumshoe finds a pubic hair in a restroom in L. A. and the lab concludes that Shirley Temple killed John F. Kennedy. The FBI is a stupid, blundering bunch of chowder heads, ranking just ahead of the Secret Service. They got out of the police business years ago and got intomaking sure patriots are on the right list. The only problem is they have guns, and “police” training. So, we have the Green Flag Republic inside, and the Federal Bureau of Ineptness outside. What could possible go wrong! Oh, you wonder what the Green Flag Republic was. It was an effort in Texas in around 1813 to start a new republic. Got their tails shot off.

This next part isn’t funny. Mr. Finicum is on his way to talk to a sheriff in a neighboring county , when he gets stopped at a roadblock. Let’s get real. This man was part of a group that took over a federal building. Right, wrong, or sideways, the FBI did have a right to stop him, and take him down to the county jail, ok? If he didn’t see that coming he wasn’t very savvy. CJ Grisham used his arrest (s) to push his agenda for gun owners in Texas. Finicum slammed on the accelerator and took off down the road. Bad move! The FBI is jumpy, and they are two bubbles short of “plumb.” Finicum veers into a snowbank, narrowly missing an agent who remained on his knees for several moments.

Finicum exits the vehicle and raises his hands. This, in and of itself, was a bad move, too. Any “HomeBoy,” stopped by police knows to put his hands at “10 and 2” on the steering wheel and not move. I will address this later. Anyway, he gets out. Suddenly, he reaches down to his waistband. Why? Government’s conclusion is that it was a threatening move. As of yet, we do not have body or dash cam information to see if a shot was fired, but ask yourself, why would a man, exiting, walking away from his car, hands up, suddenly reach down. Clutching a wound, maybe? Then he raises another hand, which he quickly returns to his coat. I had thought he was pulling a gun myself, I’ll be honest, but the facts didn’t add up. What sense would that make. “Uh, here’s my gun, now I’m gonna put it back in case I need it later.” According to the FBI a 9mm pistol was found in his left coat pocket, however, Kate Beecham ran the serial number displayed in the photo the Feds released and turns out it’s not a serial number at all! I could just barely make out the hand raised, but it appeared to be pointed toward his truck. “I got this, stay in the truck!” We all know how it ended, with the FBI charging in and shooting him. (I told you they were stupid!) I’ve heard all the ideas about the truck not being shot. I’ve seen the enhanced video, and the bullets hitting. There was no return fire! Now, people, that’s a fact!

Now, let’s pull back and get a full view of the entire event. An old man, involved in an act of civil disobedience, gets taken down like he was El Chapo. I want you to consider something here. Remember the “10 and 2 thing?” Let me ask you something. Is this a country you want to live in? The answers are simple. The FBI claims he had a gun. Simple, trace the gun, see if it comes back as his. The FBI produced a gun See how many wounds are in the body and where! If he has a hole in his lower torso, could that be what he was reaching for? These things must be investigated, and not by the FBI! That would be like Goebbels investigating Hitler!

My concern is not for Oregon, but Texas. There is a movement right now to get the Texas Nationalists involved in this deal. We do not need to get into this for a number of reasons. I want you to notice how many “Patriots” came to armed defense of the people in the reserve, before and after Mr. Finicum’s death. We in Texas don’t play that. We charged down to San Jacinto and shot everything darker than us! Right before that, we took over the Alamo, fired on an army twenty-five times larger than we were, and in Waco, David Koresh littered the lawn of Mount Carmel with ATF agents, and he was a preacher! The resistance in Oregon was making a statement, we are forming a nation, and that’s a fact. We aren’t playing, and we’re not impressed by a bunch of Yankees in sunglasses talking into their sleeves. It is not that we don’t support other patriots, we do, but we, in Texas, know this may end up in a shooting war, and we have to stay focused.

The government is out of control, and they won’t leave quietly. It’s good to be the king, but the shooting of Mr. Finicum shows a very disturbing side of our Federal occupation. If you do not kiss the glove with enthusiasm they will kill you. I don’t think that Mr. Finicum fully understood this. I didn’t fully take it in until I saw the video. I know what I didn’t see. I didn’t see a gun in the snow. If the suspect was actually threatening the agents with a weapon it would have been there. Contrast would have been great. Blue steel against white. Wanna see something funny? Now that they have read this watch a gun suddenly appear. I would have put it in the initial release, but I’m just a Simple Ol’ Boy From Austin, so what do I know? Hey Feds. . . . GOTCHA!
