Honest Abe, Benedict Arnold and Everyone In Between

Since I have become active in this so called patriot movement I have been appalled at the behavior of many. In all fairness, I may have been a bit naive and idealistic in what I thought a patriot should be, in what I was getting into; now my eyes are wide open and I still […]

As I was sitting around among trusted and loved friends today, watching them talk and laugh I was overcome with a sense of intense thankfulness followed by questions…Some that have been plaguing me since the court proceedings that took place this past Tuesday.

Echos of Hellboy and 1776

         I wrote this after Hellboy’s human Duane Ehmer gave me the go ahead to give his pony a Facebook presence.

The Heart of the Constitutional Battle Series – LaVoy Finicum

This is going to be the hardest “profile” that I have done to date.  Not because of lack of things to say, but because I know it is going to be very emotional, not only for me but also for many people that read it. I first became aware of LaVoy like many of us […]

The Heart of the Constitutional Battle Series – Jon Ritzheimer

Jon is yet another patriot that I met in Seattle standing in support of Schuyler.  I remember him sticking out to me that day, not because he was loud, not because he did a grand gesture to draw attention to himself, but because he sat quietly in the courtroom, with purpose…holding up a pocket copy […]
