The “Gun Problem”

The federal government stands poised to criminalize the possession of things rather than actions, which is the type of “action” that government specializes in. It is also arguably why there is what government styles a “gun problem” – though it isn’t much of one at all, just as the “pandemic” wasn’t, either.

Except insofar as government’s deliberate exaggeration of the supposed problem.

With regard to “guns,” the “problem” is almost entirely due to the actions of a relative handful of people out of some 330 million innocent people. Most of the problematic people are denizens of cities where crime isn’t merely a problem but an institution and a way of life, as in the case of Chicago and Baltimore, to cite two specific examples. If you were to excise the “gun violence” that occurs in such places from the aggregate, there would be almost no “gun violence” in this country. Very much of an intellectually honest piece with the fact that, outside of nursing homes and already-sick beds, there was very little unnatural death resulting from the “virus.”

Some hysterics – just the right word, because that’s precisely what we’re talking about – will insist (hysterically) that no deaths – no possibility of deaths –  whether from sickness or the actions of sick people, can be tolerated and any and all measures to prevent them are justified.

This transcends mere hysteria, of course. It crosses the line into insanity – which can be defined as the intolerance of anything less than perfection at whatever the cost to the good. As in the good of hundreds of millions of people who aren’t the problem nor the cause of any.

There will always be “viruses” – sickness – and some will die.

Eventually, inevitably, we will all die. To obsess about death rather than live life is to embrace living death. If a given person wishes to do so, then that is his (sick, sad) choice as it is his life. But it is sicker to insist that others must embrace their living death. Just as it is sick to insist that because some people are a problem everyone else must be presumed one and punished as if they are one – irrespective of their actions.

Which circles back to “guns” – in air fingers quotes to emphasize the usual usage, which implies that it is the guns that are the problem rather than the actions of the relative handful of people who choose to use them in problematic ways. This attitude is – once again – hysteric. Emotionally incontinent. Of a piece with the emotional incontinence that projectile releases when a hysteric faces someone whose face isn’t hidden behind a “mask.”

The operative psychology is the same.

Weaponized hypochondria and “hypochondria” about weapons, as such, being etiolations of the same underlying derangement. It can be diagnosed, in part, by the dissonance that always accompanies this derangement. In the case of the “pandemic,” we have the weaponized hypochondriacs who wear a “mask” sometimes – but not all the time – which is like wearing glasses sometimes. Either you need glasses – or you don’t. If you wear them and can see without them then you do not need to wear glasses.

You need a psychiatrist.

In the case of guns, the dissonance manifests in the utter disinterest in the actions of criminals; in taking no meaningful action (repeatedly) to do something about them – as opposed to doing something to millions of people whose actions are entirely innocent of having caused harm to anyone.

There is a way to bridge the gap between reasonable people who would like to see the actions of bad people dealt with and those who have had it up to here with being characterized as bad people by fearful people.

On the one hand, leave good people alone. Good people are not the problem. They have never been the problem. “Good people” can be easily identified. They are the people who’ve not caused any problems – defined as not having acted in a way that has resulted in harm to others. There are hundreds of millions of these people. Many of them possess guns. So?

It’s pretty straightforward.

In return for being good, leave these people alone. Stop insisting that their mere possession of weapons constitutes actionable action. Respect that they have the same right to possess a gun as people who have not molested children have a right to be around children. Get a grip on your fears. Stop letting your fears cause harm to those who haven’t caused any harm.

On the other hand, deal harshly with bad people. These can be easily identified, too – according to their actions. They are the people who cause problems – defined as their having acted in a way that did result in harm to others. If someone threatens to harm someone (an innocent someone) with a gun, which arguably constitutes a working definition of attempted murder, the threatening alone should (upon conviction) result in heavy consequences, such as many years in prison. A second such conviction, a lifetime in prison. Actually shooting someone ought to be met with even greater severity.

It’s pretty straightforward, too.

Such measures would all-but-eliminate what is styled “gun crime” without causing harm to to millions of people whose actions have never been criminal. Thereby avoiding the creation of a criminal regime – a good working definition of that being a regime that treats as criminals people whose only “crime” is being characterized as “criminals.”

Unfortunately, this is a bridge the emotionally incontinent will likely refuse to cross, because it does not lead to their deranged insistence upon a perfection that can never be, at the cost of much that is good.

Including hundreds of millions of good people.

  1. Why shouldn’t The Powers That Be believe they can and ought to decide to ban guns? Or the use and/or possession of guns?

    We-in the royal usage- have allowed TPTB to dictate how much water your toilet can flush; what motor vehicle you are allowed to use; how much of your paycheck you get to keep; if you can grow food for your own consumption…and the list goes on and on.

    If you are not going to rebel because of their assumption of dictatorial power in all these other areas, why should they expect anything different when it comes to supposedly fundamental rights? Everything is fundamental. I mean just the environmental regs alone destroy your fundamental privileges to life, liberty, and property. Yet, you all go along with it. Easier than going to prison for life.

    Who cares if they take your guns away? You were never going to use your weapons to end tyranny anyway, so what do you need them for? The off-chance you might need a gun to defend yourself? Not likely. I’m 52 years old, and i’ve never needed a gun, neither has any relative, friend, or co-worker needed a gun to defend themselves.

    We-the royal we- let TPTB strip every single human right away during the covid crisis; where was the uprising? Hmmmm?

    Since we have accepted unlimited government up to this point, why should our political masters believe we won’t accept more? Look at the pro life movement; if they really believed that all abortions were murder, then why didn’t they rebel? I mean, if the police just start murdering babies in the streets, would you just stand there and wait for the supreme court to rule on the constitutionality of the baby killing?

    Who among you will draw a hard line, and put up a fight? Die, go to prison forever, risk everything that makes your life enjoyable? Hmmm?
    Or will you wait until enough “other” people rebel, wait until rebelling is “safe” and hide in the crowd.

    As I have said before, the great American experiment is over, the results are in. All we are doing here is documenting the decline and fall of the empire.
    Life is about living according to your own set of values, not winning the political battles of the day; those battles never end and why would you look to government to solve any problem anyway?
    Waste of time. Live as well as you can, do what you need to have enough self-respect to go on. Draw a line, if you must, but die on a hill that is worth your life, because your life will be forfeit.
    Sorry for the long rant. I post infrequently here, and need to expiate my own demons before they multiply.

    Live long and prosper.

    • It was a very good rant Andy. I agree with most all of it. You should comment more. I only get to read a few articles a day, Erics site, ZH, Makow, thats about it. I have so many irons in the fire I am trying to live as best I can. If you do that, and don’t sell out I think you can face what comes next with a happy heart.
      Just finished eating the first ripe melon of the season and it was one of the best I’ve ever had, bout 40 more still ripening. Cantelopes, Casabas, and honey Dews. My gardens are my happy places.

    • Hi Andy

      That’s the nature of emergent systems. They can be stable for a long time. But push them just a little too far in a given direction, and really radical results happen. There can also be a series of mistakes over time. Any one of them is harmless. But in combination things cycle out of control quickly. History demonstrates this time after time. I very much suspect we are moving into those times. Most people just want to live their life. Focus on their family and friends. When they are forced out of that pattern, Bad Things™ can and do happen. Tyrants and those who submit to them, never seem to learn from history. Thus they are doomed to repeat the same mistakes.

      Live and learn. Or you not live long. (Klingon proverb)

    • Good points. I’ve long since come to the conclusion that there will be no uprising against FedGov/ZOG/Leviathan.

      However there are still reasons to keep guns, even if they are deemed illegal. First, government has no obligation to protect you. The fact that you have not needed a gun yet does not mean that you won’t someday. A gun is like fire insurance — you hope you never need to use it but you had damn well better have it if your house burns down.

      Second government might actively turn loose its pawns to loot and and commit arson like in the George Floyd riots and you will need to defend yourself. True, they will prosecute you like St. Kyle of Kenosha, but he is alive today because he was armed and he ultimately won in court.

      Third, in a free society people should be able to keep guns simply because they want to. I realize we are becoming an unfree society and gun control is a sure indication of it.

      if they were really concerned about saving lives they’d ban opioids and anal sex, but they’re not. They want control, pure and simple. If nothing else keeping a gun is a symbolic “Fuck you” to the government that desperately wants total control.

  2. Nancy’s plane was followed like OJ Simpson’s Bronco moving slow on I-5 in 1995.

    Video Rebel has some insights.

    Video Rebel is not a fan of Fauci. He also has some unkind words about Jews too.

    In a short video, Julian Assange has a take on the wars that are perpetually waged and the goals sought.

  3. the politicians wanting to pass this law are preying on the fears of the incontinents. the only reason the politicians care about the guns is because they are planning on doing things (or know that events are unfolding) that will get them shot. that being said; anyone who would comply with this law should not have a gun in the first place.

  4. Years ago I read on an outhouse wall that the reason the government wanted to take your guns away is because they were going to do something you really wouldn’t have approved of; many people though wrote underneath that he was an idiot. Well here we are years later and it’s pretty obvious that he was right. How long into the future will we be like the UK where once they grabbed the guns that they went after pointy knives? Government is only interested in disarming you so that they can do what they want with you. If this was actually about crime you can charge and get convictions with the existing laws but they don’t even bother.

  5. Any “gun” control legislation is not about guns….
    It’s ALWAYS about people CONTROL!!!!
    First, last, and all points in between….
    And here is the “greenies”, crowing about “pollution control” in AU, going from 75% reduction of 2005 limits by 2030…

    https://www.aljazeera.com/economy/2022/8/3/australian-govt-says-confident-emissions-target-will-become-law

    And for US citizens, and the rest of the West, experiencing the current version of “freedumb”, it’s only a matter of time before this despotism rears its head and destroys our abilities for travel and movements via ICE powered vehicles.

    Scary stuff, this Agenda 2030 and these agenda 21 plans.

    Fight it now while its easy, or get used to living on your knees….

  6. 1st gun control, 2nd CBDC

    How Technocommunism Will Institute The CBDC: The Central Bank Game Plan In Under 3 Minutes

    The entire global financial system is now essentially a technocommunist black ops money laundering crime scene.

    Central banks, their wall street coconspirators and the major corporations are all colluding in ushering in their hyper-centralized CBDC dystopia. This central bank “currency” will of course be inextricably tethered to the A.I. social credit score system which will algorithmically surveil and control the genetically modified debt-slave tax mules.

    The goal is to not only link every human to their social credit score, but to tax, inflate (stealth tax), debank and deperson at will.

    Building on the DEATHVAX™ program, everyone will be injected with nano-microchips which will assimilate the posthuman digital-chattel into the AI.

    The elites will then finally gain control of the very lifespans of their pod dwelling synthetic bug sludge eating genetically modified subjects.

    https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/how-technocommunism-will-institute-cbdc-central-bank-game-plan-under-3-minutes

    • the future soon…… pod dwelling synthetic bug sludge eating genetically modified transhuman…

      globalist/communist/wef planned future
      for the few remaining useless eaters, after their 7 billion cull.

      turning people into appliances plugged into an all-seeing internet, more transhuman robots than people, dutifully following orders but unable to produce anything beyond what is programmed into their quantum microchips, bereft of the sparks of inquiry, innovation and joy in a electric panopticon that’s sterile and joyless, you are better off dead.

      they implant an operating system in you and connect you to the grid, they also connect an AI robot to the grid, this is so you can train the robot to do your job. you won’t be needed then = soylent green.

      the dissenting and disenfranchised will find themselves branded as “terrorists”, gathered up into the box cars, and shipped away to be disappeared by the millions.

      Clean, efficient, cheap elimination, sustainable and always environmentally friendly. And it will be at that point, in these cramped box cars, within these hot and stinking quarters during that collective silence where time is suspended between repeating clanks of iron on iron and the hypnotic rhythm of the carriage roll, it is here where “of the people” will ponder upon why they did not wake up, why they did not wise up, and why they did not rise up.

      And so these thoughts go, box car after box car, train after train, day after day. And as the trains slow into the camps, “of the People” will finally experience the epiphany of just how few individuals there were who ruled over the world, but will also discover too late just how few bu…ll,,,,,ets would have fixed things early, how little blood need be shed to derail this Road to Zero.

  7. Why would the government care if we kill each other with guns, that would help with depopulation agenda. The Covid Kill Shot is about culling the masses. Governments like to wage war with lots of big guns, and they kill millions. It’s not like the guvment is against guns or killing – they excel at it.

    Here’s a good one – rocker and pro-gun Ted Nugent says Jews are to blame for anti-gun legislation.

    https://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/ted-nugent-jews-gun-control

    He is immediately attacked for this viewpoint, but is he right?

    —————

    U.S. Federal Gun Control Legislation, 1968 – present

    All Federal gun control legislation in the United States has been written, introduced, and sponsored or co-sponsored by Jewish Congressmen and Jewish Senators.

    Emanuel Celler, Democratic Representative from New York(1923 – 1973)
    Howard Metzenbaum, Democratic Senator from Ohio(1974, 1976 – 1995)
    Herb Kohl, Democratic Senator from Wisconsin(1989 – present)
    Chuck Schumer, Democratic Senator from New York(1999 – present), Democratic Represenative from New York(1981-1999)
    Dianne Feinstein, Democratic Senator from California(1992 – present)
    Arlen Specter, Republican Senator from Pennsylvania(1981 – present)
    Frank Lautenberg, Democratic Senator from New Jersey(1982 – 2001, 2003 – present)
    Barbara Boxer, Democratic Senator from California(1993 – present), Democratic Representative from California(1983 – 1993)
    Carl Levin, Democratic Senator from Michigan(1979 – present)

    1968: The Gun Control Act of 1968 comes from Representative Emanuel Celler’s House bill H.R. 17735. It expands legislation already attempted by the non-Jewish Sen. Thomas Dodd. America’s biggest and most far-reaching gun law came from a Jew.

    1988: Senate bill S. 1523 is sponsored by Senator Howard Metzenbaum. It proposes legislation turning every violation of the Gun Control Act of 1968 into a RICO predicate offense, allowing a gun owner to be charged with federal racketeering offenses.

    1988: Senator Metzenbaum co-sponsors a bill — S. 2180 — to ban, or limit/restrict, so-called “plastic guns.”

    1990: Senator Herbert Kohl introduces bill S.2070, the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990, which bans gun possession in a school zone. The law will later be struck down in court as unconstitutional.

    1993: Senate bill S.653 is sponsored by Senator Howard Metzenbaum. It bans specific semiautomatic rifles, but also gives the Secretary of the Treasury the power to add any semiautomatic firearm to the list at a later date.

    February, 1994: The Brady Law, which requires waiting periods to buy handguns, becomes effective. Senator Metzenbaum wrote the Brady Bill. Metzenbaum sponsored the bill in the Senate. The sponsor of the bill in the House was Rep. Charles Schumer.

    1994: Senator Metzenbaum introduces S.1878, the Gun Violence Prevention Act of 1994, aka “Brady II.” Representative Schumer sponsored “Brady II” sister legislation [H.R. 1321] in the U.S. House of Representatives.

    September, 1994: The Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 goes into effect, including a provision that bans the manufacture and possession of semiautomatic rifles described as “assault weapons.” [Note: true assault weapons are fully automatic, not semiautomatic]. That gun-ban provision was authored in the Senate by Senator Dianne Feinstein and authored in the House by Congressman Schumer.

    1995: Senators Kohl, Specter, Feinstein, Lautenberg and others introduce the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1995, an amended version of the 1990 school-zone law which was struck down in court as being unconstitutional.

    September, 1996: The Lautenberg Domestic Confiscation provision becomes law. It is part of a larger omnibus appropriations bill. It was sponsored by Senator Frank Lautenberg. It bans people convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence from ever owning a gun.

    1997: Senate bill S. 54, the Federal Gang Violence Act of 1997, proposes much harsher sentences for people violating minor gun laws, including mandatory prison sentences and forfeiture of property. It was introduced by Senator Dianne Feinstein and Senator Hatch, among others. It returns the idea of turning every violation of the Gun Control Act of 1968 into a RICO predicate offense.

    January, 1999: Senator Barbara Boxer introduces bill S.193, the American Handgun Standards Act of 1999.

    January, 1999: Senator Kohl introduces bill S.149, the Child Safety Lock Act of 1999. It would require a child safety lock in connection with transfer of a handgun.

    February,1999: Senator Frank Lautenberg introduces bill S.407, the Stop Gun Trafficking Act of 1999.

    February, 1999: Senator Lautenberg introduces S.443, the Gun Show Accountability Act of 1999.

    March, 1999: Senator Lautenberg introduces bill S.560, the Gun Industry Accountability Act of 1999.

    March, 1999: Senator Feinstein introduces bill S.594, the Large Capacity Ammunition Magazine Import Ban Act of 1999.

    May, 2000: Senate bill S. 2515, Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2000, is submitted by Senators Feinstein, Boxer, Lautenberg, and Schumer. It is a plan for a national firearms licensing system.

    January, 2001: Senate bill S.25, Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2001, is sponsored by Senators Feinstein, Schumer, and Boxer. It is a nation-wide gun registration plan [apparently there were two versions of that Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act bill].

    May, 2003: Senators Feinstein, Schumer, Boxer and others introduce legislation that would reauthorize the 1994 federal assault weapons ban, and, close a loophole in the law that allows large-capacity ammunition magazines to be imported into the U.S. The ban expired in September, 2004.

    October, 2003: Senators Feinstein, Lautenberg, Levin, and Schumer co-sponsor bill S.1774, designed to stop the sunset [ending] of the Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988.

    March, 2005: Senator Lautenberg introduces bill S.645, “to reinstate the Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act,” in other words, to reinstate the 1994 assault-rifle ban [also known as the “Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994”] which expired in late 2004.

    March, 2005: Senator Feinstein introduces bill S.620, “to reinstate the Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act,” in other words, to reinstate the 1994 assault-rifle ban [also known as the “Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994”] which expired in late 2004.

    July, 2005: Senator Feinstein introduces bill SA1621 – Fifty-Caliber Sniper Weapons. This amendment would convert all .50 BMG firearms to NFA weapons.

    July, 2005: Senator Feinstein introduces bill SA1622 – Fifty-Caliber Exclusion to S.397. This amendment would modify SB397 to allow suits when the firearm involved was a .50 caliber weapon.

    July, 2005: Senator Boxer introduces bill SA1633 – BATFE Safety Standards SA1633 – BATFE Safety Standards. This amendment allows law suits to continue/be brought if the product did not meet the safety standards as defined by the BATFE.

    July, 2005: Senator Boxer introduces bill SA1634 – ‘Sporting Use’ on Domestic Handguns. Applying ’sporting use’ clause requirements to domestic handguns could, almost completely, dry up the handgun availability in the United States.

    • Nice list. Where’s Jason Flinders lol?

      “You’re just so wrong. I can’t even begin to tell you how wrong you are. That’s just the wrongest thing I’ve ever heard, I can’t believe you’d even say that.” ad infinitum

  8. Gun control has never, ever been about “reducing crime.” That’s just a pretext to get the ignorant and the Karens on board. It has ALWAYS, always been about eliminating any potential opposition to the government and establishing total government control.

    The late Charles Krauthammer, a liberal Jew raised in Canada who passed himself off as a Republican “conservative,” wrote in the Washington Post that the Clinton “assault weapon ban” would do nothing to reduce crime, but it would desensitize the population eventual confiscation:

    “Passing a law like the assault weapons ban is a symbolic — purely symbolic — move… Its only real justification is not to reduce crime but to desensitize the public to the regulation of weapons in preparation for their ultimate confiscation.”

    • Hi X
      Austin Fitts: “We’re At War With The Deep State Globalists”

      Central bankers want a financial system that is a lawless criminal control syndicate where it’s legal for them to do whatever they want. It is simply a choice between tyranny and sovereignty, freedom or slavery.

      We start with the foundational building block of tyranny, the Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) that global bankers want to install in the financial system. CAF says, “It’s not a currency…”

      ” That’s what you need to understand. What we are talking about is a control system that is going to be implemented in a global coup d’état, and we are in the middle of a global coup d’état.

      That’s what is happening right now.

      Essentially, if you look at the central bankers, the BIS (Bank of International Settlements) and all the central bankers are trying to create a system where they are completely free of the laws of nation states and governments. In other words, they are inserting sovereign immunity from all laws and literally trying to create a civilization under the law where they are free to do whatever they want, including, as we know—genocide.”

      CAF says to fight back against CBDC is to use cash.

      We need to move to cash, especially for the things they incentivize when you pay by card, like gasoline. They are actively trying to calculate carbon footprints of every person and using cash will impede those efforts.

      CAF says central bankers will ignore the U.S. Constitution, steal all of our assets like cash and gold but especially the land.

      ATTENTION: CAF contends they won’t be able to do this unless they take our guns and extinguish the Second Amendment.

      CAF contends the good news is people are waking up and this evil criminal system can be stopped. CAF says,

      “Saint Paul said in Timothy, ‘Just stand and watch the divine go to work.’ They can’t do this.
      Did you see what just happened in Ireland? They tried to go all digital, and they had so many people cancel their accounts, they had to walk it back…

      https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/austin-fitts-were-war-deep-state-globalists

    • Yes, no doubt in my mind. This has never been about misguided well-intentioned bleeding heart liberal ideas…the wolves behind this are using those idiots as a human shield to ram through their agenda.

      First registration, then confiscation, then elimination.

  9. Meme I saw:

    One asks: “Why do they want our guns?”

    Another responds: “Because they want to KILL us and don’t want to be shot at while doing it.”

  10. “……which is like wearing glasses sometimes. Either you need glasses – or you don’t. If you wear them and can see without them then you do not need to wear glasses.”

    Actually its pretty common to only need glasses sometimes eg. To read. Wearing reading glasses while driving would be stupid.

  11. We do not have a “Gun” Problem! We have a people problem misusing guns for crime! We have a Judicial problem not keeping these criminals behind bars for 10 years or more doing hard labor.

    • I had a gun problem when I lived in NY; All the criminals and tyrants had guns…but I didn’t, because innocent straight white Christian males get sent to prison there for many years just for having a gun (never mind using it to shoot one of their precious criminals!)- while murderers, robbers and gangbangers (as long as they’re not white) get a slap on the wrist, even when actually using a gun to commit their crime- and millions of people vote with their feet and wallets, and pay top dollar to live in these slums where the state protects their enemies while criminalizing Constitutional rights. This is a sick society.

    • I like Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s solution – make ’em live in tents in the desert, wearing pink underwear and eating green bologna.

  12. YOUR GOOMINT AT WORK to Saaave you.

    The global Monkeypox outbreak—occurring on the exact timeline predicted by a biosecurity simulation of a global Monkeypox outbreak a year prior—bears a striking resemblance to the outbreak of COVID-19 just months after Event 201, a simulation of a coronavirus pandemic almost exactly like COVID-19.
    Event 201 was hosted in October 2019—just two months before the coronavirus was first revealed in Wuhan—by the Gates Foundation, the World Economic Forum, Bloomberg, and Johns Hopkins. As with the Event 201, the participants at the Monkeypox simulation have thus far been stone silent as to their having participated in a pandemic simulation the facts of which happened to come true in real life just months later.
    One person who was present at both Event 201 and the Monkeypox simulation is George Fu Gao, director of the Chinese Center for Disease Control. At event 201, Gao specifically raised the point of countering “misinformation” during a “hypothetical” coronavirus pandemic.

  13. Thank the Jews for “multiculturalism” and everything anti-white and anti-American.
    CRT, BLM, Antifa, Communism, Feminism, FIAT money / Fractional Reserve Lending, Usury…folks, if you’re not aware that these are all JEWISH CONSTRUCTS, then you aren’t reading enough.

    White people are the TRUE ISRAELITES OF SCRIPTURE.

    SERIOUS QUESTION
    Can one use rapeseed oil or Canola as biodiesel?
    The in”edible” oil is CAD 848.40/tonne and the paint version is CAD 656.75/tonne.
    Maybe cut it with some medium naphtha at USD/706.47/ton.
    Of course hemp oil would be cheaper and the crop is actually beneficial to the soils, unlike corn.
    https://tradingeconomics.com/commodities

    • There is enough crude oil underneath the United States to provide for our needs FOREVER. There is no need for “biodiesel” or any other ENGINE DESTROYING SUBSTANCES.

      • Far from being “fossil fuel”, hydrocarbons are not only plentiful but are being created by yet-unknown processes deep within the earth.
        The term “fossil fuel” was coined in the 1950s when little was known about the processes by which oil is produced. Oil is “abiotic” in nature, as even depleted oil wells are “filling back up” from deep below the earth’s surface.
        Oil interests are drilling wells at 5,000 feet, 10,000 feet, and 15,000 feet and deeper, and coming up with oil deposits way below the layers and levels where “fossils” were known to exist.
        As Russia gained much expertise in deep-well drilling and coming up with oil deposits far deeper than that of the level of “fossils”, abiotic oil at extreme depths was actually a Russian “state secret” for a long time.
        Not only that, but there are planetary bodies in which hydrocarbons are naturally occurring (without fossils).
        “Peak oil” and “fossil fuels” are discredited concepts that environmentalists and others are latching on to, in order to display their hatred of oil being a renewable resource as well as to push prices up.
        Follow the money.

    • Erle,

      Yes, absolutely! Care must be used in its storage, and the cloud/pour point is higher (congeals at higher temperatures), but there is no reason you can’t use it, especially in older and less particular engines.

    • Erle,

      …Also, consider Rudolph Diesel himself was a proponent of using vegetable oil as fuel, and is said to have fueled the first diesel engine with just that.

      My calculations yield a cost of about $2.41/gallon CAD, which is about $1.86/gallon USD. Not bad at all, this day and age!

      Consider it for use in a diesel generator, also, which could be particularly useful in the even of a fuel supply shortage/cutoff. All manner of vegetable oil could be grown/extracted by anyone with the know-how and gumption.

      • RE: “All manner of vegetable oil could be grown/extracted by anyone with the know-how and gumption.”

        I need to spend some time & get myself into that. I have a diesel lawn mower (er, I will, once it’s determined why the alternator is putting out so much juice it fries the wires to the voltage regulator! Oh, boy.) I don’t want the poison ivy to take over this part of the world, some people are allergic to that damn plant.

        Sheep (hair) are also on my list to get/learn about… there was a video I saw once, the guy didn’t own a lawn mower yet had some acres and zero weed problems, etcetera. That seems like a nice goal?

        A wood gasifier, also. And,… man, I wish I was 20 yrs. old. So much to learn, so little time, & not enough spark.

        (Cross my fingers, hope my chest freezer don’t die, and thank goodness All-American canners don’t need gaskets.)

        • Helot,

          Yeah, goats are also an excellent weed-control strategy, I hear.

          “So much to learn, so little time, & not enough spark.” – I certainly hear that, as well. I feel like it took me this long to turn around and reverse course on my life, which was launched in the wrong direction by the corrupt education systems and paradigm of dependency that confounds so many.

          But yes, there are SO many way to increase your independence and live a more fulfilling and exciting existence.

  15. Recently, there have been a number of instances where the feds have shown up at firearms purchasers residences demanding “proof” that the firearms purchaser still owned the recently purchased firearms. Most of the purchasers complied with the feds demands and presented the weapons for “inspection”. Not good.
    Federal agents do not have jurisdiction over non-FFL holders who have legally purchased firearms, PERIOD!
    Just recently, one purchaser who was paid a visit by a fed did the right thing. He called the local cops and informed them that a cop impersonator was attempting to gain information about his lawfully acquired firearms. Thankfully the local police officers (Columbus police department) did the right thing and arrested the “suspect” (ATF official) who still gave the cops a hard time. Of course, they eventually let him go without charging him with resisting arrest.
    If a fed visits you attempting to gain information about firearms that you legally purchased, do not talk to them or give them the time of day. Call your local police department and inform them that an unknown individual is impersonating a cop and is demanding information on firearms that you possess. As I previously stated, the ATF does not have jurisdiction over ordinary citizens who possess firearms.
    There is a video available showing the ATF agent being cuffed after resisting arrest.

    • Anarchyst:

      Unfortunately, you can’t count on the local PD to do the right thing. In fact, some of these ATF guys bring along with them back up from both the state police and the municipal police, as in this video-documented instance:

      https://www.bitchute.com/video/cECylXDq9Pz4/

      This new “friendly look-see” program is largely a joint “fusion” operation of the feds and locals.

  16. the killings are a feature not a bug. In order to keep encroaching on our freedoms the power mongers need chaos so they can promise to save us, if only we give them more and more and more power over us.

    • Hi jj,

      Exactly. All of these “victimless crime” laws fall into this category. It is why I have tried to make the connection between gun laws and seatbelt laws and mandatory insurance laws, ad infinitum.

      • Hey Eric,

        I agree with you on many things, but I’m a little weary of “If someone threatens to harm someone (an innocent someone) with a gun, which arguably constitutes a working definition of attempted murder, the threatening alone should (upon conviction) result in heavy consequences, such as many years in prison.”

        Now, I certainly don’t like to be threatened with being shot, but is some guy telling me that he’ll shoot me if I don’t stay away from his girlfriend, for example, the same is sometime taking a shot at me and missing (surely attempted murder)? I would think something would have to constitute an attack to reach that level of gravity.

        • Hi BaDnOn,

          I ought to have been more precise with my wording. I should have written: “Points a gun at another person,” which is what I meant. I agree that “just words” ought not to be actionable. But if someone points a gun at you, they are threatening to kill you and that ought to be responded to accordingly.

  17. Maybe the problem is the people like this POS. The only way to solve the “gun problem” is to eliminate these people.

  18. As NRA members very, very rarely commit crimes using guns, wouldn’t having everyone join the NRA virtually eliminate crimes committed using guns? Or, as the writer notes, the majority of crimes committed with guns takes place in .3% of our land mass.

    • Hi Mich,

      I live in a rural area where it’s safe to assume every home has at least one rifle. Yet there is no “gun crime” to speak of. If “guns” cause “gun crime,” then someone needs to explain this incongruity.

      • “If “guns” cause “gun crime,” then someone needs to explain this incongruity.” -eric

        If guns caused gun crime we’d all be wiped out by the four-hundred million+ guns in the US. We have more guns in private hands than any other country in the world yet I haven’t ever personally had to dodge any bullets nor has anybody I’ve ever talked to. Guns are safer than ladders, shall we ban ladders? All tools can be dangerous. Guns are tools for freedom and tyranny
        Don’t ever let tyrants take your guns.

        • Amen, 500 –

          Of course, facts (and reason) never mattered to the Leftist who push for such things as “gun control” – or “masks.” Or anything the Left pushes.

          • Hi Eric

            As others have stated, gun control isn’t about guns. Its about control. If one examines history, one of the first things a tyrant does is disarm the population. This has happened over and over again. But at this point, the loons in congress can pass what ever they want. Enforcing it is another thing entirely. Entire sections of the country would just ignore them. Then the law suits would start. The Nine Riders of the Bench have made it very clear what their perspective on the second amendment is. But I must admit that I do believe in gun control. That’s why I use both hands. 🙂

  19. “Most of the problematic people are denizens of cities where crime isn’t merely a problem but an institution and a way of life, as in the case of Chicago and Baltimore, to cite two specific examples”

    A recent news description of the perp who shot up downtown Chicago. Him looka like a man.

  20. The fbi is actively requiring retailers to hand them lists of we the People names that have purchased holsters! Typical for these idiots. I personally have purchased a dozen or more. That does not mean I have dozens of guns! So I guess next up is a license to own a holster. I always wondered what retard pool they got their employees from but after the last 2.5 years it has become painstakingly clear that pool is extremely large.

  21. Eric,

    The “gun” problem for the democrats, progressive and GDC’s running amok in this country is not about reducing crime / violence / homicide, as you address throughout you entire piece.

    The “gun” problem as they see it is the fundamental essence of the 2A and how it stands in the way of their aspirations to install a permanent overbearing and oppressive government.

    While what you write about may be true it misses the much bigger notion of the “gun problem”.

    Respectfully.

    • Hi LGB,

      I agree with you; I have said so, in previous articles. No question in my mind that, as bad as the past almost three years have been, they’d have been much worse were it not for the fact that millions of Americans are armed.

  22. Give us this day our daily fentanyl bust.

    In every big town across the land, the reality today is the daily news reporting about some fentanyl being distributed, no doubt it costs lives. Law enforcers making a few arrests and calling it a day is now business as usual.

    A few hundred million guns out there ain’t gonna hurt that much. Tens of thousands of young people dying from overdoses is not an emergency. Just a glitch in the post-modern world. Merely a flesh wound. 100,000 deaths from overdoses in a year don’t count, we don’t do body counts.

    And how about those vaccines? How much damage have they done? Afraid to do body counts there, too.

    Far more vaccines out there doing some serious damage compared to guns in circulation. You’ll never gain control of the gun trade, you’re asking for more trouble.

    Nancy Pelosi is hardly an asset for the US gov and a 100 percent liability. If the godless communists in China would force land her aircraft at an airport in Shanghai, it would be a blessing in disguise. China can have her, lock, stock and barrel.

    Rodney would tell the Chinese, “Take her, please.”

    The US gov would have to charge the Chinese gov three trillion dollars to have her released, she’ll have to find her own way back home.

    History repeats itself all of the time.

    “Well, come on mothers throughout the land,
    Pack your boys off to Vietnam.
    Come on fathers, don’t hesitate,

    To have your boy come home in a box.
    ” – Country Joe McDonald, Fixin’ to Die Rag

    War is good money and the money is good.

  23. You know, I really like your columns and agree with most of your opinions. But I do take issue with some of your examples and analogies. Case in point:

    “Either you need glasses – or you don’t. If you wear them and can see without them then you do not need to wear glasses.”

    Admittedly, I’m 60 years old, so my eyes won’t be getting any better short of surgery (which I won’t have in today’s medical care environment). However, I wear glasses when I drive (in fact, that’s a restriction on my license). Can I drive without them? Sure, but I do see better with them on. I also wear reading glasses when looking at small print or reading a book. Can I read without them? Yes, though not very well. Maybe I don’t “need” them in a strict sense, but it sure makes life a hell of a lot easier and probably saves me not only headaches, but eye strain.

  24. Not only is disarming the populace related to our “betters” wanting to eliminate the threat of an armed revolt (not the fanciful “insurrection” of Jan. 6 where the agents of the government shot and killed an unarmed woman), they also want us dependent on them for our personal safety. The heavily-armed and armored yet cowardly Uvalde “police” who allowed that mental defective to butcher innocent children while they piddled on their phones showed depending on them is probably a poor idea.

    I live 15 miles from the closest town, which is a Dollar General, a couple of gas stations, a few houses and nothing more. I’m more than 40 minutes away from the nearest hospital. The sheriff’s department here is at least a 15- to 20-minute ride in an emergency, which is an eternity. If someone or something like a rabid coyote threatens me or my family, I’m on my own and I’m fine with that. Not having the security blanket of the gun safe in a rural area is an anathema to me.

  25. Pro tip to joggers, this ain’t Tee Vee. They don’t shoot if ya hold em sideways. also if theres no bullets in em.

    I watched the video of the old man and the jogger. Sun City, Las Vegas, right next to my old neighborhood, not any joggers back 15 years ago. Funny that the emotionally incontinent as you call them are probably up in arms, refusing to blame anyone but the old man and his guns.

    I can hear their argument already. ‘If the old man didn’t have a house full of guns, nobody would be [email protected]#ing with him. And that poor, poor disadvantaged man, he was never afforded the white boomer privilege that the old man had. Its all the fault of crony capitalism. Time for the have nots to light the fires and burn some stuff down.’

    In all seriousness you make some great points about the emotionally incontinent, (love the word smithery by the way) These people are devoid of any good sense. Many of them probably still check under the bed for monsters. In the world I now vaguely remember, these people would be locked up in straight jackets and given the help they so desperately want and need. Or absent that, a good swift kick in the nether bits.

    • John Kable
      Agreed. Interestingly the fist example of US government troops willing to attack citizens occurred only a few years after the founders coup that installed the Constitution. The Whiskey Rebellion. Even then with the revolution a recent memory assholes could be found to “just follow orders” to attack others who had not harmed anyone. Even more interesting,,, the man who won “freedom from” England led those militia. As the bad guys (those not wanting taxed to death) did not show up no battle ensued. Some were arrested anyway. The “founders” won! They got their strong central government but lost the freedom the citizens fought for while the generals were sitting high on their horses with their wigs on taking photo (painting) ops.

      Some things never change. The best government is no government.

  26. “Eventually, inevitably, we will all die”. Not only that, but barring accident or violence, we all inevitably GET SICK and die. That’s called normal.
    The “panic” over gun possession has nothing to do with criminal actions, as you succinctly point out. It’s an old song that keeps repeating. Tyrants ALWAYS want the people disarmed. Being a tyrant is a dangerous job, if people have means to shoot you. The Brits disarmed the Scotts and the Irish hundreds of years ago. How did that work out for you Scotland and Ireland? Or how about you in the USSR, or in 1930s Germany, or in Cambodia, or in Mao’s China. Lest we forget, the stand on Lexington Green was against a British troop on its way to confiscate or destroy a militia arsenal. Tyrants hate guns, unless they command them.

  27. Ah, but Eric you’re not a WEF member, so you don’t get to hobnob with “futurist” Ray Kurzwell. See, for years ol’ Ray has been presenting his slide deck full of statistics and optimism predicting that by 2030 (linked article says 2029) not only will it be possible to live forever, doctors will be able to wind back the biological clock to mid-30s.

    https://metro.co.uk/2016/05/06/apparently-were-all-going-to-live-forever-by-2029-5866054/

    No word of why anyone would want to life forever, but apparently guys like Bill Gates are obsessed with the idea. Interesting how all the climate change disasters require radical action “by 2030” or we’re going to burn, but I’m sure that’s just a coincidence. Maybe Ray and Al Gore are the same age and figure they won’t be around to see if the predictions come true.

    So of course a bioengineered virus weapon might interfere with their enternal Hell on Earth plans. As will losing their beachfront property if the global warming change stuff is right. Or some random asshole with a gun getting past their security perimeter.

    Prince Albert (of the famous can) – Death from pneumonia
    Former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl – was on holiday in Sri Lanka’s pristine south — one of the areas most devastated by tsunamis (2015)
    And of course there’s John Lenon, killed on the sidewalk by Mark David Chapman

    You better belive that’s in the front of their minds, all the time. If they can just protect themselves from danger long enough they can do what only God promises, and therefore become pseudo-gods themselves, high on their Mt Olympus.

    • RK,
      Perhaps their desire to live longer, or forever, is tied to the guilt they’ve acquired in this life. Even if they have managed to avoid awareness of their sins. If they just had enough time, they could assuage that guilt, subconsciously. It would probably require they live forever to do so, and they would still fail.

    • Rk,
      Another theory on the elitists desire to live forever: the worlds already their playground. They never dropped into bed after a hard days work to be awakened prematurely the next to do it all over again. They don’t have an armed goon squad lighting fires under their ass and making them jump through hoops. They wish to become gods on earth similar to Ra in the movie stargate. They probably already have life extension, they just need a fundamental change in society to use it. If the swine are willing to hut hut hut now for some benefits and a pension imagine what all government mafia workers will do for perpetual youth. First things first though…gotta thin the herd.

      • Hi 500,

        I suspect there is more than just a little this business about “life eternal.” I remember coming across the reference to Adrenochrome back in the ’80s, when I first read HST’s Fear and Loathing.. . I’d like to know where Hunter heard about it.

        • Eric,
          These haggard old ghouls have to be huffing some kind of elixir. It’s surely not a clean and wholesome life giving these elitists lifespans into the nineties. They have the whole of humanity to use as guinea pigs and spare parts. I have no doubt they’re getting young blood transfusions and baby stem cell treatments just to stick around and ensure their utopia comes to fruition. They Live called it perfectly, from the passivating broadcast towers to the fact that the aliens running the show look like pilosi, fauci etc. Just put on the damn glasses!

        • Eric,
          In John DeCamp’s The Franklin Cover-up, one of the boys who said he was raped and molested by all the “elite” freaks said, on one of their trips around the country, they picked up a director for a snuff film named “Hunter Thompson” in Las Vegas.

          • Hi Anon,

            I hope that’s not true – about HST. I have admired his writing since I was a kid. His life did not end well, as those who know about him already know. He committed suicide while on the phone with his son. His body was wrecked by then, though he was not very old. A sad end, assuming that business about snuff fills is not true.

      • According to Jay Parker and Mark Passio, the order followers are treated with ultimate contempt by the “elite.” They’re called “our dogs” behind their back and subtly mocked with “dog tags.” “They sit when we tell them to sit. They attack when we tell them to attack.”

        It’s also why the Natl Guard had to sleep in the freezing parking garage after the InSuRrEcTiOn. That wasn’t “an oversight.”

        If the “elite” get their wish, I don’t think the order followers get to enjoy “life everlasting” with them. Their “dogs” likely get put down with like a poison pill or some sort of … injection.

    • RK,

      These elitist scum are afraid of death, and they SHOULD be! They don’t have Christ as their savior, so according to John 14:6, they’re going to hell. The fact that they lived crime filled lives screwing over humanity won’t help their cause. Hence, they want to live forever, so they don’t have to face the Judge of the Universe to give an account for their lives.

    • The WEF and oligarchs win. Enslave all us serfs. The “Oh Fuck” a planetoid smacks the planet. Killing all the human race other than a group of political prisoners being transported in a large ship to their destination in the Antarctic. Crunch time. Wait for the full length novel.

      Point is “they” are not omniscient, corrupt, yes, venal, yes, arrogant, yes, over confident, yes. Not real smart, yes. Lazy, yes. They use underlings to do the heavy lifting with cutouts to keep their names out of the public purview. Underlings make mistakes. Then we bring in the unintended effects. Then negative feedback arises. Then revolution. Hang on to your defense mechanisms. May be needed sooner than you think.

  28. ‘There is what government styles a “gun problem” ‘ — eric

    Funny that this same government creates its own “gun problems” elsewhere, by irresponsibly exporting weapons.

    The Defense Department admits that the multi-billion-dollar weapons shipments it’s unloading at Poland’s eastern border get turned over to a motley mix of paramilitary, private vehicles, soldiers, mobsters, spies … and disappear from sight as they cross into Ukraine.

    Some of them, inevitably, end up in Russian hands, but also in the hands of organized crime, which may well export them to other places — perhaps even Chicago and Baltimore.

    But Raytheon and Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman are making a killing on this lethal trade, so it’s not a problem from the perspective of an oligarch-run Big Gov.

    Speaking of institutionalized violence, this morning the intrepid Nancy Pelosi left Kuala Lumpur in a US military aircraft, bound for the old Songshan airport in downtown Taipei. China, shrieking in rage, is massing its military forces to stop her.

    Big Gov exhibits a rather casual attitude toward potentially deadly violence, does it not? Perhaps we should take its guns away …

    • Hi Jim,
      That’s a great suggestion – taking government’s guns away – since they are the world’s biggest perpetrators of violence. Can’t wait to see what happens if some of those stinger missiles that govco is dumping in Ukraine end up in the possession of “terrists” and take down an airliner or two. Sleepy Joe was so proud of killing the guy from Al Queda he had to pre-empt “Jeopardy” to brag about it; this coming the week after he was kissing the ass of Mohammed Bone Saw, the real instigator of nahneleven.

      • ‘Can’t wait to see what happens if some of those stinger missiles that govco is dumping in Ukraine end up in the possession of “terrists” and take down an airliner or two.’ — Mike+in+Boston

        Like flight MH17, whose demise was blamed on pro-Russian rebels in the Donbas? Or the TWA-800 crash off Long Island, improbably attributed to a fuel tank fire despite dozens of people witnessing a missile track? (Thanks, FBI!)

        Looks like we’re in for a fresh round of madness, chaos and mass casualties, as emperor Joe mumbles about his ‘Paxlavoid’ [sounds like a laxative], then face plants into his corn flakes.

    • Hi Mike,

      An excellent point. This arrogant bastard says “we’ must give up our guns, which we have not shot anyone with. Astounding. As well as telling.

  29. The fundamental problem with all this is it requires gub’mint to become reasonable and reform itself. It’s never happened and it never will. May as well ask the Cosa Nostra to stop its protection racket, or a tick to just leave good people alone. They can’t. They need the mass of regular productive people under their heel.

    Republicrats and democans are Bloods and Crips, and everyone and everything else is the spoils of war.
