I know a lot of people who have served, not a whole lot who have died in service. At least one of them I met at Boomershoot, he worked as a precision-shooting instructor/assistant. The US has lost some good men in the last 30 years fighting stupid wars for made-up[ reasons in places we should not have been. As more history of what’s actually been going on behind the scenes gets exposed, the less I I can say this is a great country. Great people, sure, a lot of them, but not such a great country any more. I salute those who joined and served with the best of intentions, but paid the ultimate price for people how hated them.

That time of year- Rhubarb cookies
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup butter
2 heaping cups thinly sliced rhubarb
2 beaten eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
4 1/2 cups sifted flour*
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
Cream together sugars and butter.
Mix in rhubarb, walnuts, and eggs.
Mix salt, soda, and baking powder into first cup of flour.
Sift in flour a cup at a time, mixing well but not whipping (you want small rhubarb chunks to remain).
Note: it will seem like a pretty dry cookie dough; that’s ok.
Drop onto cookie sheet in tablespoon-sized glops.
Cook at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
Cool on rack.
*I usually use half whole-wheat and half white flour, and you can easily substitute in a half cup of wheat germ or oat bran for a half cup of flour.
Finally found out something about my upcoming 40th class reunion. Juneau-Douglas HS class of ’83. Someone put together a FB page (but it’s private), and there is also a specific normal web page here jdhs83.com. I’ll see if I can make it. Don’t think I have any conflicts.
Most interesting thing of first note is that there are at least 17 known dead, from a class of about 300. 5.7% have passed already that they know of. According to here, we should expect about ten percent will have passed by the 40th reunion.
I expect if we actually knew the whole number it would be more than ten percent, as the covid gene therapy “vaccine” will likely kill a number of them, too.
Sending your kids to die for ZOG
“The US will have to send their sons and daughters… and they will have to fight, because it’s NATO we’re talking about.” – Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
The RUS-UKR war is a meat grinder, particularly on the UKR side. The more I learn about the last 1.5 centuries of military and political history, the more I think that is actually one of the main goals. Kill off young men, particularly healthy, creative, Christian, disciplined and honorable white men. Not the only goal, to be sure, but a significant one. “War is a racket,” said Smedley Butler long ago in the book of that title, and a very profitable one. But what can make it even more profitable is if you can kill off your domestic competition in the trenches, too. Continue reading Sending your kids to die for ZOG
Liberator Pistol Mk II
During WWII, the US manufactured a million FP-45 “Liberator” pistols, at a cost of slightly more than $2 each (about $35 today by official inflation calculations, likely twice that by real inflation), to be air-dropped into occupied territory in Europe in order to arm the resistance unit. The goal wasn’t that it was a great weapon; the purpose was to be just good enough to kill an enemy soldier at point blank range and take HIS gun.
If the US (or anyone else) were to do something like that today, with slightly higher aspirations and the following specs for the RFP, what cartridge, materials, and basic design layout do you think would work best, and what would the unit price be if bought in bulk?
- No regard for any particulars of firearms laws in any country; it’s a rebellion weapon.
- Designed around a subsonic round, with integral suppressor.
- Iron signs, but with simple rail or attachment points for optic
- Simple construction, maintenance, operation
- 5MOA accuracy or better at 100m
Edit to Add: 2.A) Either integral suppressor or threaded for a suppressor. Obvious trade-offs on size, concealability, size with/without suppression. production costs. An integral sup will make a smaller package than a threaded barrel with the suppressor attached.
2.B) It may be designed to use a sub-sonic loading of a normally supersonic round, with a box of sub-sonic ammo to be shipped / dropped with it for initial engagements, but able to use local resupply. For example, 300 Blackout is “normally” available in subsonic, as is 10mm or 45 ACP, but 7.62x39mm Russian is not (normally ~124 gr at 2300-2450 fps), though 220 gr subsonic can be found. Obviously a “common” ammo type has tradeoffs over a “rare” ammo type.
Kelly Kettle review / first impressions
I had been intrigued by the Kelly Kettle / Ghillie Kettle a long time, as I had been by rocket stoves and all other sorts of camping / survival gear and fire-related things. (The Kelly and Ghillie are pretty much the same thing, but the KK is a US company, the GK version is a UK company, with slightly different options and variations, such as KK has stainless steel, GK is Aluminum only). It’s a small, simple, wood-burning “debris and twig” system designed to boil water quickly on little fuel, and also do general cooking/heating. The bottom line on that claim to fame: It does boil water very well on little fuel, even poor quality/wet fuel, and is OK as a general twig stove for GP cooking.
Details below. Continue reading Kelly Kettle review / first impressions
Happy New Year 2023
Happy New Year, all. Hope you have a good one.
No predictions. There are WAY to many variables with a wide range of values, and any sort of reliable information about military actions, the economy, agricultural production, energy production are hard to get, politicians and mega-corps appear bent on suicidal levels or woke and stupid, search engines are failing, and the scenarios for the death rate and disability rate from the vaxx are much to uncertain to do anything more than speculate wildly. Everything from total collapse and billions dead to “muddle through, slowly getting worse” are all plausible.
How does one prepare for that with anything other than prayer and keep on keepin’ on?
Well, here to all of you keepin’ on, I guess.
If you haven’t gotten the booster, DON’T
A study came a little while ago, with the very dry sounding title of “Class switch towards non-inflammatory IgG isotypes after repeated SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccination.” A more recent one from November is titled “Conserved longitudinal alterations of anti-S-protein IgG subclasses in disease progression in initial ancestral Wuhan and vaccine breakthrough Delta infections.” The problem outlined is starting to get noticed and understood, as it’s rather technical. It is about the effects on the immune system from the mRNA covid vax. Something like this was hypothesized quite some time ago, and a lot of arguable evidence to support it, but there was no hard data to directly explain the mechanism. Long story short, after 3 doses of the vax appears to trick the immune system into tolerating further exposure to the virus (like a healthy immune system ignores pollen) rather than fighting them (like someone with bad pollen allergies), making a person a walking mutation factory, while also suppressing the ability to clear it… and it increasingly looks like the potential of creating problems clearing other related viruses may also get worse is being realized.
Again, the bottom line is, if you have gotten a shot or two, that’s bad but if you are not dead within six months likely survivable, but the booster is an order of magnitude worse for you immune system (all other bad effects aside), and until you read and understand what this effect is and what will likely happen if you get it, I implore you to say NO to boosters. They are obviously and provably not safe OR effective.
Here are some “plain language” breakdowns of the study, as the study itself is largely incomprehensible to anyone not a medical specialist or an immunologist. We are not quite the zombie apocalypse yet, and we don’t know how long the effect will last, but it looks like, right now, that the 3rd shot, the booster, definitely makes the problem vastly worse.
The trainwreck of all trainwrecks: Billions of people stuck with a broken immune response.
VERY URGENT: Do Covid mRNA vaccines damage our ability to control the coronavirus after a booster shot?
Booster-Caused IgG4 Immune Tolerance Explains Excess Mortality and “Chronic Covid”
New evidence of persistent Spike protein tolerance from breakthrough infections.
IgG4 and cancer – a mechanism of action for cancer relapse and onset.
Short, simple thread: How the discovery of the shots causing more production of IgG4 as opposed to the other classes of antibodies might explain the negative efficacy of the shots.
Each talks about the same problem, but with more or less detail and emphasis and predictions. Long story short, the damage from the vax to the individual immune system is significant, but the damage it might be doing to the overall health of society given how it will cripple masses of people and rise expenses and depress productivity will be… worse.
How and why education “suddenly” went Marxist
Sometimes you watch events happen in real time and it looks absolutely insane and inexplicable, totally at odds with any sort of reasonable and observable reality. You search in vain for any sort of coherent explanation that doesn’t sound to a normie like a total wingnut conspiracy theory, even if you think you have the broad strokes correct. Such is the case with modern “education” in America, where it’s got totally off the rails and deep into a bizarre inverted funhouse-mirror world of Marxist dysfunction, where the teachers and admins appear normal in some ways, but act like total blind cult devotees in others.

Deer Hunting 2022, ammo by L.H. Oswald
And herein we have a hunting tale.
Due to circumstances I won’t go in to, this year I’d be heading down to my normal hunting grounds alone on Friday, for opening day Saturday, but would need to head for home no later than about noon Sunday, unless I got a deer last minute and it took past noon to butcher him. So only one and a half days hunting for this outing. I’d be camping out, and decided to go relatively fast and light, with minimal gear and just driving the Jetta (better fuel mileage).
