It is All about Keeping a Promise, to You.

It has been since May of 2018 that I have written a post of this nature. It is less about Scripture and more about being vigilant. Yes, things look bad in the world. Our relationships with other nations, i.e. Russia, China, Iran, Iraq plus the relationships of other countries with their neighbors such as India/Pakistan, Israel/Gaza/Syria/Lebanon/… It has the appearance that we could go to war at any minute, now that an oil processing plant has been attacked in Saudi Arabia.

Signs of the Times: Trump vs. Hezekiah

((Please note that this article is NOT part of my We Wrestle Not Against Flesh and Blood series. The weather is warming and I believe that this will bring more protests, more riots, more demonstrations against the Trump administration, so I felt lead to issue this article before continuing the series. Also, I want to say Thank You or Khaap Khun Mak to my 2 faithful readers in Thailand and Muito Obrigado to my 3 faithful readers in Brazil. It’s been 42 years since I was in Thailand and I have never been to Brazil but would love to see it, one day.)) Continue reading

Prepping for the Sabbatical Year: As if you needed one more reason to prep.

(((I want to dedicate this article to Brandon, Shellie, Kathy, Philip and Nadia who have asked great questions about preparing for the Sabbatical Year. Also, I dedicate it to my little sister in the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) Sandra, whose efforts and excitement in preparing for the coming sabbatical year border on “awesome”.))) Continue reading

Why I Was Wrong about America’s Destiny: Part One – The Curse

Like many of you, I have always enjoyed the study of history, especially American history. It was the knowledge of history itself and especially the history of empires, their rise and fall, that I based my preparation plans upon. After the fall of an empire there is the period of time of “sacking and pillaging” that normally takes place. At a point in time, some say 3-4 years others say 5-7 years after the fall, a subdued sense of normalcy returns. It was reaching this period of time that I based my plans Continue reading

Will 2014 Be Our Year of Decision?

Dear Friends, I want to begin by apologizing for my lack of attention to this site. I had to make a decision of which was more important; writing, which I love, or helping others prepare for what is coming our way. I chose to help, rather, we chose to help. Von chose to help me help others. Continue reading

Kilo One-Six, What’s You’re Sitrep, Over?

Catchy title? Not really. Kilo One Six is my old call sign. Many the night, usually around 2 a.m., I would be dozing with one earphone over my ear and the other ear listening to the noises around me and get the above call. Continue reading

On the Clock of Tyranny…

On the clock of tyranny we are 30 seconds from Midnight. I will not go into an analysis of the N.D.A.A.or the various Executive Orders from der fuehrer in the last five months. So many people have already done this that I think it unnecessary for me to add anything to their analysis. Continue reading

Yes You Can!…Build your own Refuge

I want to apologize, once again, to all those that I owe emails to. April, I know I owe you and Tess and others emails. But I have been tied up, almost literally, with this latest house. Continue reading

Leftovers, Lagniappe and La-Z-Boys

((Why did I named the article this, I don’t know. It was all I could come up with. Sorry.))

Although this article is NOT about leftovers at the dinner table, it could be. The title is based on the terms that I learned growing up. My family was from central Louisiana but I was raised in south Louisiana. This is similar to having your family from England and raising you in France. Continue reading

Don’t Forget the Small Stuff!

A few years ago there was a self-help book on the New York Times Best Sellers list entitled “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff (and it is all small stuff)” I guess I am going to take a contrarian view because I want to get you to think about the small stuff. Continue reading

What Did We Accomplish?

In the previous post you may have gotten the idea that the trip was not a succss. We did get our supplies safely there and inventoried as I stated. We also located a site for two more cabins. The cabin that we were able to start will be for Von and I and then the third cabin will be for visitors (also read refugees.) Continue reading

Home Again

I usually do not comment on a family “vacation” but I think I will this time because it has a very interesting side note for all of us. Every year, my family “group”

We observed nesting pairs of bald eagles on the way to the museum. Awesome!!

gets together during the months of February in winter and June/July for the summer. These get-togethers are to discuss strategy, current events around the world, go over our preparations and, many times, construct a cabin, road, LP/OP or some other needed improvement to our refuge. We have traditionally met in February because so many members of my family, including myself, have a birthday during the month. This year my mother turned 90 years old and when asked what she wanted to do for her birthday her response was to go to the World War II National Museum in New Orleans Louisiana Continue reading

The Last Great Act of Defiance

Never quit! FIght to the end.

(I originally published this article on December 5th, 2011 on the Don’t tread on me website but the question keeps coming up so I will repost it here.) 

Me and the little mouse in the picture have one thing in common, I don’t intend to give up. Maybe I won’t solve all the world’s problems, free mankind from the shackles of Debt Structured Bondage, find a Real cure for warts or anything else profound. Continue reading

Stardate: 4/24

Okay, it is a little melodramatic since I don’t have a starship Enterprise but I want to use this opportunity to explain the meaning of 4/24, which I am sure some of you know already, and to dangle my feet a little. (more on that in a moment.) I know some of this is going to sound a bit outlandish, but I am basing this on a lifetime of service to my country, research and yes, some intestinal discernment, you know, gut instinct. Since these are my personal feelings on the matter it is a lot like dreaming you are walking naked in front of everyone you know. And, you know me, I am always one to avoid controversy.
