Corona’d and Hut! Hut! Hutted!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Jonah Ricke of Loveland, CO was Hut! Hut! Hutted! the other day by armed government workers for having the effrontery to consider his business – and his ability to pay his bills – essential. He ignored orders  from the government (which styles itself essential) to close his business Because Corona – actually, because of government thuggery (an oxymoron, I realize) because he figured (wrongly) it was his business whether to keep his business open and his customer’s business to decide for themselves whether they wished to do business with him.

Free association and all.

News story here.

No one is forced to enter any business, remember. Those who Fear Corona are perfectly free to stay away from anyplace they feel isn’t “safe” for them. Of course, that isn’t good enough for them.

Everyone must be made “safe” for them. No matter the absence of provable harm done to them – and notwithstanding the very provable harm done to people like Ricke and his customers, who are forced to not transact business, the former forbidden to earn an honest living and the latter forbidden to buy what they want from whom thy want when they want.

Can’t have that in a “free” country.

And so, Ricke was Hut! Hut! Hutted! by armed and very dangerous government workers, who dragged him away in cuffs and placed him in a cage. He was charged with multiple made-up crimes such as “obstructing government operations,” “resisting arrest” and – the newest in-thing: “unlawful acts public health act” (i.e., Because Corona).

In addition to being put out of business by government, Ricke now faces the costs and hassle of defending himself against these made-up charges and will probably be forced to hand over money to the government which forbids him to work and Hut! Hut! Hutted! him from daring to do so.

But hey, the 4th of July is just a couple of months away. Ricke is no doubt looking forward to celebrating his freedoms.

Aren’t you?

Isn’t it grand to know you live in a country where the government – random other people with titles, badges and goons with guns backing them up – and arbitrarily decree themselves “essential” and you not? Then forbid you from working – or even going outside – on account of a nebulous, nonspecific “threat” to “public health”?

This is what comes of allowing the Safety Cult to become a state religion. I’ve been telling you so  for years.

I wished more had listened.

  1. To all of those here who are thinking about defending themselves against both the tyranny of the AGWs/Government/NWO and the tyranny of the order following social-justicing sheep ninnys….remember….precedent has been fully established that if you ‘fear for your safety’ then you are authorized to use deadly force against that which you fear.

    Seems pretty simple to me.

    • Hi Pyrate,

      It’s only going to take a critical mass for this to happen. I foresee a scenario, as follows: An AGW attempts to Hut! Hut! Hut! a group for not “social distancing” or some other manufactured offense. The anger explodes and the AGW is overwhelmed. When the dust clears, there’s not much left but pieces.

      No one wanted this, of course. But as Arthur Harris said: Sow the wind…

      • Maybe.

        I saw that scenario, too. In V for Vendetta. What was prolly edited was all the bangers that never went mash-critical.

        And, to contribute to the potential kinetics of monkey see monkey do staying very local, no pep rally coverage was televised. All smartphone filmed up with no place to go.

        The V scenes qualify as a domino fact trope, or should, by now.

        Including the ‘we are the world – let’s sing!’ bit at the end where the gunslingers lower weapons & join the masked coke’sters. No Kent State stuff in UK, I guess.

        And the then Wachowski brothers are now the Wachowski sisters.

        It’s a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world ‘cept for my Lola (Lola Versus Powerman & the Moneygoround, Part One. That was 1970.)…

        Or, not a movie treatment, the xmas truce, ww1. Merry xmas, now we return us all to our regularly scheduled programming.

        Imaginations toward demassification of the mass that threatens would be a lot less tropey.

        But what’s the imagination distribution? And the imagination-traction drivetrain distribution?

        Whoever mentioned they are reading Bell Curve now might could answer when he gets to that chapter.

        And “besides”… the good ol’ traditional idea of critical mass meeting already established mass just begets the next progeny-crop of masslings. Stimulus(of emulation)response. (re)action-reaction.

        Jeans become designer jeans & the hippies that wore the former become “capitalists” & wear the latter.

        Robert Downey Jr goes into prison all downy-soft, comes out ironman towards Hamilton’s beast. (I saw him in The Judge, recently. Came out in 2014. Producer credit to…Steve Mnuchin. Hollywood. DC. It’s all scripts & film.)

        ‘The revolution won’t be televised.’ But it will be projected. Yet again? Place your bets.

      • Yes Eric,

        And unfortunately, the ‘people’ rioting and responding with violence is exactly what the cabal desires. They have declared a national emergency (Trump signed it March 13th) which essentially puts FEMA in charge of the USSA….with that comes the placing of all of those nefarious executive orders on the table to be activated. They did not create those executive orders to subsequently have them remain shelved. They will give us no choice but to defend ourselves, and then they will use our revolt as a pretext to remain in emergency status and activate said executive orders upon us. We are dealing with pure satanic, pedophile evil…barring some divine intervention, we are fucked. As goes with the USSA, so will go with the world.

        Here is a list of the FEMA executive orders, placed into ‘law’ without congressional review (as if ‘congressional review’ makes a damn bit of difference): Note in the final executive order that once a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress cannot review the action for six months. The clock is ticking.

        EXECUTIVE ORDER 10990 allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports.
        EXECUTIVE ORDER 10995 allows the government to seize and control the communication media.
        EXECUTIVE ORDER 10997 allows the government to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals.
        EXECUTIVE ORDER 10998 allows the government to take over all food resources and farms.
        EXECUTIVE ORDER 11000 allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision.
        EXECUTIVE ORDER 11001 allows the government to take over all health, education and welfare functions.
        EXECUTIVE ORDER 11002 designates the Postmaster General to operate a national registration of all persons.
        EXECUTIVE ORDER 11003 allows the government to take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.
        EXECUTIVE ORDER 11004 allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.
        EXECUTIVE ORDER 11005 allows the government to take over railroads, inland waterways and public storage facilities.
        EXECUTIVE ORDER 11051 specifies the responsibility of the Office of Emergency Planning and gives authorization to put all Executive Orders into effect in times of increased international tensions and economic or financial crisis.
        EXECUTIVE ORDER 11310 grants authority to the Department of Justice to enforce the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute industrial support, to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.
        EXECUTIVE ORDER 11049 assigns emergency preparedness function to federal departments and agencies, consolidating 21 operative Executive Orders issued over a fifteen year period.
        EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921 allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution, of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in U.S. financial institution in any undefined national emergency. It also provides that when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress cannot review the action for six months.

      • BTW Eric, Ran the Outback XT up to 100 in a 60 today on my way from OR to WA to perform ‘illegal’ contracting work in WA state…a state that has banned contractors from working. Ha ha ha a-holes. Pyrate contractors were already off your grid, so your new rules really don’t make any difference to us.


        -PS Fuck you too, NSA spying assholes. Ahhaahhaaahhhaaaa

        • Excellent, Pyrate!

          That was the first post I rad today – and it made my day!n Resist! Avoid! End Run. If enough of us do so, there’ll be nothing thjey can do to stop us.

          Withdraw your consent via your actions.

        • Pyrate, the congress critters realized decades ago it was easier to not do their job than to do it and suffer the consequences. It’s the reason why so many “bills” that are passed, are passed by a minority of Demoplicans and Republocrats. Plenty don’t even show up. Like the guy driving the get-away car, he can claim “I wasn’t anywhere near the robbery, I didn’t know anything about it”. Meanwhile he has ill-gotten gains stashed away and is entirely blameless.

        • 8South, As always you speak the truth. A funny thing is beginning/shall soon begin to happen for many of these inside players involved in government, private government contracts, and the entertainment industry…The are realizing that when the music stops, they won’t have a chair either. Put in practice, they are coming to the realization that they do not have a ticket to get into the mountain bunkers.

        • Correction…I went Pyrate Contracting again today and realized that I made an error in my post from yesterday. I never really pay much attention to those speed limit signs so you will have to forgive me….It was not 100 in a 60, but rather an even sweeter 100 in a 55. I guess I should bump that up to 110 next time for a nice little double.

    • It’ll seem otherwise the minute you’re caught up in it. Assuming you make it to minute 2, beyond.

      None of this is a Marquess of Queensberry board game; you don’t own Baltic Avenue, let alone Park Place.

  2. It’s not about the law or the constitution. They will be ignored. It’s about who has power and the ability to enforce it. That is why you must never give up your weapons.

    • There are so many weapons in the hands of the “sane oppressed”…when the hell will we have the collective balls to use them…if not now, when, and if ever?! I cannot think of anytime in recent US history (other than the passing of the Federal Reserve act of 1913) for a more perfect time to exude power from the barrel of a gun.

  3. But Eric, how else do you expect the Sociopaths In Charge and their bank cartel masters to hide the end of the current fiat debt based monetary system? The failure of which predates the plague. 219 CEOs of major corporations resigned and cashed out in January. I hardly believe that’s a coincidence. All fiat money systems eventually fail. In fact, due to the western work ethic, this one lasted longer than most, since 1913 and the Federal Reserve Act, and especially since 1971 when the dollar was detached from Gold in international exchange. Not to worry though, the bank cartel, stock market, and the Sociopaths In Charge magically have their asses covered. The stock market going back up while unemployment goes hypersonic is magic of the highest order. I wonder if more folks are beginning to understand the purpose of 2A.

  4. I am 24 years old. I barely remember the simple joy of getting on an airplane without taking your shoes off. I vaguely remember the first time I had to, at age 6 or 7; I cried and threw a fit because I thought I was already in trouble even though I hadn’t done anything!

    I now wonder if the kids today, who will be my age in 10-20 years’ time, will grow up to confess that they barely remember the simple joy of going out in public just for the heck of it and without a hot, oxygen-depriving facemask or random “papers, please” interactions with the police. This is the next generation’s 9/11, in every sense.

    • Hi Chuck,

      It’s so sad. It was only 20 years ago that you could roll up to the airport 15 minutes before your flight departed, jump out of the car and run through the airport to the gate, show your ticket (not your ID) and just board. You might see a cop car parked outside the terminal – to ticket people for parking violations. Flying was fun. The idea of having to be patted down – let alone have someone touch your crotch – inconceivable. Until it wasn’t.

      Three weeks ago, it was inconceivable that Americans would be cattle-chuted at grocery stores, dragged off trains for not wearing a mask and told they may not work, for weeks ongoing, because they are not “essential.”

      This is the inevitable result of worshipping – and mandating – saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaafety.

      It is very saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaafe in a prison. And here we are.

      • eric, I believe everyone here and elsewhere too, will do all the good by watching this video.

        Before the shutdown ever occurred, I read about a family that all got sick very quickly at the same time. There had just been a 5G transmitter installed by their house.

        Also, the home for the old in Washington was being assaulted by 5G too. Same goes for the cruise ship where so many were sick. 5G affects the lungs and just about every part of the brain. It causes people to not be able to breathe. It screws up water molecules. Got any of those in you?

      • You also didn’t see several armed and ARMORED sheriff’s deputies at a local Wal-Mart, and IF someone resisted the receipt check, threaten ARREST for “disturbing the peace”. I shit you not. So now law enforcement has become Walley World’s Praeteorian Guard.

  5. Now Apple and Google are collaborating (in defiance of antitrust laws) on a Covid-19 exposure reporting system. Bluetooth will sense when you’ve been in the proximity of a Covid-19 leper. This sh*t will be force-fed into IOS and Android operating systems, not an app.

    Question is how they connect Covid-19 cases to individual phone users. Google has been stealing health data from some health providers for awhile. Maybe they’ve made a secret gov-sponsored deal to STEAL IT ALL.

    Most of this data will be coded by SSN. That’s why, when obliged to give an SSN, I “accidentally” scramble a couple of digits to pollute the data and monkeywrench the system. Never been confronted on it, though if it ever happens, my dyslexia must be acting up again. 🙂

    Other avenues to defeat our Apple/Google oppressors are to keep location services turned off, and more importantly, to not carry a phone on local errands. Women especially might freak at not being connected every minute of the day. But that was the norm in the dangerous, benighted days of the 20th century.

    Even those obliged to keep a phone turned on for business should consider not carrying it inside stores, many of which are equipped with sophisticated electronic spy networks to identify shoppers and monitor their behavior.

    One would think a market would exist for a non-spyware phone operating system. Possibly Huawei’s OS (developed by necessity after getting cut off from Android) would serve, if it gets an English front end.

    Do I trust Huawei? Of course not. But I distrust Huawei less than US-dominated Apple and Google, which dance to the tune of our satanic spymasters in the imperial capital. EFAMOL 2L

    • Hi Jim,

      Remember when Nancy said to Just Say No? That’s my plan. If some geek gets in my face about not wearing a mask or “social distancing,” they may get more than just a No, too.

    • Get yourself a metal box just big enough to hold your phone. Keep your phone in it unless you’re using it. That will also keep your friendly neighborhood 5g millimeter wave EMF projector from shooting a beam at you. I’m 65 years old so I have plenty of experience living without a cell phone. I’m constantly amazed that apparently a majority of so called people prefer to view the world through a 3″X5″ window.

        • Yeah, a company I worked for made me take one back around 2002. A couple years later they decided they wouldn’t pay for it anymore, so I had to pay for it or send it back. I sent it back. Good riddance!

          And then back around 2007 I got another cell phone because of traveling for work. It finally got obsolete and we bought a $20 flip phone from Radio Shack just for emergencies and road trips. No cell service where we live anyway. We don’t even turn it one unless we are out somewhere and want to make a call.

          • It’s tough to make it without a cellphone if you’re a trucker. Most companies now use them exclusively for dispatch and require you to have one. They hack them and get every bit of information on them. A large amount of truckers have protested by getting flip phones and not letting companies know their actual cell phone number.

            • The trucking company ought to PAY for the cell phone if they REQUIRE it. If they won’t, ‘eff ’em, work for someone else, no point in working for someone that nickels-and-dimes you to DEATH. But if you insist on such “slavery”, then at least your cost is supposed to be tax-deductible as a employer-mandated piece of equipment.

              However, get ANOTHER line, they’re not that expensive, and say and do what the ‘eff you WANT. Even better, get a “BURNER” phone. Why the hell does ANYONE need to know that it’s YOUR phone, other than the company you subscribe to, and you should be able to reload the access card with CASH. It’s up to law enforcement to PROVE that you’re using it for a criminal purpose, it’s not up to you to prove that you’re NOT.

              • They did supply phones at first. They did realize everyone had a cell phone and you couldn’t get a job without one. It’s not legal or moral. The companies that have failed deserved to do so . Trump is an idiot.

    • Another reason to avoid smartphones! If your situation doesn’t demand one, get a “dumb” flip phone with removable battery. No Android or IOS. Best is an anonymous pay-as-you-go phone that’s not tied to a name or Socialist Slave Number. (I’m actually surprised those are still available here in the USSA.)

      I have a list of several dead people’s SSNs that I use for non-governmental purposes. Usually I use Richard Nixon’s.

      • I’ve been saying get a ‘Burner’ phone. You never know WHOM is spying on you.

        Does it seem that with these so-called “Smart” phones that people have gotten DUMBER? And I’m not just referring to giggly teen-aged girls putting selfies of themselves on Tik-Tok.

        But Jason, I’d retract that LAST paragraph if I were you. Admitting fraudulent use of a SSN, even “Tricky Dick’s”, even for a frivolous and otherwise harmless purpose, is copping to a Federal rap. Somewhere out there is a BORED GS-13 at the FBI whom would just love to pursue the matter, in preference to dying of arteriosclerosis at his desk, and make unneeded trouble for ya. Just sayin…

  6. United States (SSR).

    We’ve (99%) ignored it for over 20 years,,, We deserve it. So now we all live with it. And that folks is how Peoples lose their freedoms.

    • America makes East Germany and the former Soviet Union look like free countries. Like Eric mentioned a couple weeks ago, at least people in those countries were able to go outside and do business (to an extent, but still). Here? One can now be arrested for holding hands!

      “I’m Larry the Cable Guy, and I luuuuuv dis cunt-ry!”

      • The “Commie Rats” simply lack our technology; else, they’d still exist. The one fortunate thing about totalitarian societies is that they ruin the incentive to self-improve and innovate. Sooner or later, with the ‘idiocracy’ that results, the whole thing collapses of its own weight.

        Shortly after reunification, West Germans were astounded at the overall lack of work ethic and self-motivation in “Die Ostlanders”. Sure, after the Berlin wall went up in ’61, they had a trickle, but the truth is, the “Brain Drain” had already occurred, and Walter Ulbricht, already considered a complete dumb-ass by even Khrushchev, knew there was no alternative, save war, to stop it. For 28 years, it took daring and innovation, like those two families from near Leipzig whom constructed a homemade balloon and after two tries made good their escape in 1979, and damned few made it. And the hell of it was, East Germany was slightly ahead of Czechoslovakia in overall GDP per capita and the standard of living, even above most Muscovites! Things were so bad in the USSR with alcoholism that the Soviet Air Force (they were actually five Soviet “Air Forces”, all part, technically, of the Soviet ARMY) that combat air craft units typically ordered about 3x the actual requirements for a very high-quality “vodka” (and de-naturing it would have made it unsuitable for its use in aircraft engines like the Tumansky and Kutnesov turbofans) that the ground crews nicknamed “white gold”, to ensure that they actually had enough to conduct operations. Even with that, whole fighter and bomber wings were often effectively grounded due to what our own military terms a “Whiskey Front”. And it was a tiger they dared not dismount, as rampant alcoholism was killing Soviet productivity all over, yet they needed the tax revenue and dared not impede the Soviet working stiff from drinking away his sorrows, as Slavic dudes are typically mean drunks.

    • I certainly don’t put myself in that category. I actually tried organizing at one time. Of course, it’s hard organizing people who say “it’s not going to happen here” or “you’re paranoid.”

      • Exactly!!! All my family and friends thought I was nuts! I gave up on society as a whole a while ago. I will say this…if it comes to it and we need to band together in the zombie apocalypse…let’s be know as the EPA. There is a certain irony in that!
