There’s been quite a bit of discussion about 5G and its possible connection to the medical lock-down, and what happens next. The “real ID” pressure here in Montana has been steady and growing more intense as we approach an apparent end to the flu season. I want to suggest that 5G is connected to the ID2020 agenda, which is hungry for biometric data from everyone.

“The program to leverage immunization as an opportunity to establish digital identity was unveiled by ID2020 in partnership with the Bangladesh Government’s Access to Information (a2i) Program, the Directorate General of Health Services, and Gavi, according to the announcement.”

Over 20 years ago a small group of clean water activists petitioned the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to list bull trout as a threatened species. The native char had lost over half of its habitat and populations were isolated and declining range-wide.

Never Give Up The Fight!

A federal judge just handed down an Order in the Dakota Pipeline (DAPL) case. He will rule on pending motions to stop the flow of oil in that pipeline at a later date.

These small victories are never enough, but keep a small, dedicated army of grassroots warriors on the front lines energy to overcome the natural fear of a superior, violent force, and keep on fighting in defense of Mother Earth.

“Water protectors at Standing Rock faced forcible evictions, and hundreds were injured, with 26 reportedly hospitalized, in one November 2016 “mass casualty incident” where police used water cannons, tear gas, rubber bullets, and other weapons.” – Sharon Kelly

Fight or flight? That is the question. Silence in consent.

Music Maestro?

The national debt just jumped higher than ever before. Music maestro! Gold medal.

During the Obama era the national debt was a daily topic of concern at the Heritage Foundation — the leading “conservative” think tank. Many AM radio mouthpieces hammered home the risk to our economy and our individual households, especially to “our grandchildren,” who will apparently be responsible for paying it all back. And in Congress, especially among those House and Senate members self-described as members of the “freedom caucus,” the national debt was tops.

Well, as it turns out, debt is our business, our only business. The debt plantation just got bigger. No surprise. I haven’t figured out a proper theme song, but am soliciting suggestions as we merrily wander into new (debt) territory. No worries, mates. It’s an I.O.U.

Mutations Matter

Zika virus is found in Brazil and other tropical countries. One mutation in the Zika virus is responsible for dramatic consequences in its hosts.

“With the understanding that SARS-CoV might be with humans for years to come, knowledge of the evolutionary mechanism of the SARS-CoV, including its mutation rate and emergence time, is fundamental to battle this deadly pathogen. To date, the speed at which the deadly virus evolved in nature and the elapsed time before it was transmitted to humans remains poorly understood.” https://bmcevolbiol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1471-2148-4-21 (June 2004).

Killing Yellowstone’s Charismatic Megafauna

Yellowstone National Park and its surrounding landscape is one of the most inhospitable locations in the Lower 48.  Life for large mammals is particularly challenging given the frigid temperatures, deep snow and long winters.  Summer is short and can be equally dangerous for the living due to wildfires, drought, and millions of tourists all trying to get that perfect “refrigerator shot” of a bison, grizzly, elk or some other wild critter wishing only to be left alone.

Since moving to Bozeman, Montana in 1986, I have had the privilege of working with some dedicated individuals and grassroots groups, all trying to protect nature (God’s country) in this amazing ecosystem.  This running battle with the State of Montana, various federal agencies (National Park Service, U.S. Forest Service-USDA, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service-USDA (APHIS), U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and a host of elite local and national NGOs that suck on an average day/year knows no end, and seems to have no bounds.  And it seems to be getting worse, not better.
