Reviewing the Ironies and Impact of Wikileaks After the Election

Prior to the 2016 Presidential Election, discussion of Fourth Amendment Rights and Wikileaks was hardly the media's favorite topic. When Tunisia's Authoritarian Ruler, Ben Ali, was deposed, people hardly cared why. In fact, most Americans asked little questions regarding Ben Ali's fall from power. He was a dictator and it was only natural that a… Read More

Voaching and Mall Ninjas: Survival Lessons From the 2016 Election

Luckily American presidential elections always fall in the middle of hunting season so for many Americans few things make a better election detox than long walk in the woods with a gun. As I was doing just that, I considered if Donald Trump would need to wear any hunter’s orange. Bad joke I know, but… Read More

The Free Marketplace of Ideas is Dead

On the morning Trump won, network pundits stared blankly at their producers. 'How did this happen', they asked as they struggled to reconcile the results of the election with their flawed polling data. Slowly journalists developed a narrative to explain their loss: Middle-America is racist, ignorant, and misogynistic. The plebeians of the country can't be… Read More

Three Lessons From Ruins

Archaeologists and Historians study the past to derive valuable inferences from past civilizations. This exercise is a noble and important one; after all, those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it. In the spirit of this thinking, I have written about a few examples of decay. If we aspire to be prepared for the… Read More

Let’s Have Victories Again

A coalition of mutinous Republicans have emerged from their elitist holes to join Democrats in a whining chorus of: “Never Trump!”. Quite frankly, I’d like to know where these Republicans have been during eight years of a disastrous Obama Administration. Where was the contrived moral outrage during Attorney General Eric Holder’s botched mishandling of the… Read More

A Toxic Brand & Trump’s Most Heinous Sin

Hillary Clinton is well on her way to 300 electoral votes in November and delivering a near Reagan-esque level ass-kicking for Democrats. As unlikely as it seemed only a year ago, a career politician as corrupt as the day is long will win the election, even with net favorable ratings in the negative double-digits.  She’ll… Read More

Top 5 Worst Incidences of Martial Law In the United States

I believe, wholeheartedly, that the United States is the best country in the world. Need proof? Check out our long history of success and prosperity. Now that I've got my flag-waving out of the way, let's get into the juicy stuff. America's prosperous history is marked with some truly hideous blemishes. These ugly periods largely coincide… Read More

The Case For Drones

The United States has increasingly utilized drones in order to repress security threats in volatile regions around the world. While drones have been criticized for being unethical, they satisfy the demands of an American electorate displeased with measures requiring ‘boots-on-the-ground’. Moreover, drones allow the United States to act in an ad hoc manner in which… Read More

Burying Guns & Ammo with MonoVault Burial Tubes

Whenever the headlines carry news of a new law that limits our 2nd Amendment rights, conversations will often come around to the subject of burying guns or creating a survival cache of some sorts.  If not firearms, people talk about burying silver and gold, ammunition, cash, important documents, even caching food storage or fuel on… Read More

Election Thoughts From A Survivalist

I have been paying attention to the candidates and have come to realize that either both parties don’t understand what is happening to the country or they don’t want to tell the masses what is happening.  To be fair, Bernie has some great points and so does Donnie.  Hillary is a puppet to the big… Read More

Jurisdictional Creep

Have the read the national newspapers today?  Did you watch Fox News, read Drudge, or get any of dozens of news flash emails?  Are you planning to attend the next city council meeting where you live?  How about the school board meeting?  How do you know what is going on where you reside?  Do you… Read More

Abandoning Reagan: A Stool With No Legs Cannot Stand

Ronald Reagan reinvigorated this county with optimism, principles and vision.  His policies directly led to the greatest economic expansion in history (1982- 1987).  His leadership re-engaged a generation of disenfranchised people and he led us to victory in the cold war.  He is revered by right-thinking members of both parties, and leaves a legacy that… Read More

The Human Element

Though we as humans are not listed on the periodic table, everything that combines into our chemical makeup is.  We, you, me, all of us are at the essential core of the salvation of mankind.  If that sounds redundant or worn out, well, think about it.  We are not only charged with surviving ourselves, but… Read More
