I was an avid TV non-watcher for years. Until COVID quarantine. Since March I have viewed more hours of television than in the preceding decade combined. One of the series we whiled our way through was the FX show Justified. It is network TV, to be sure, but it has its charms. One of which was the knavish-yet-sometimes-sympathetic anti-villain of the series, Boyd Crowder.
Boyd knew two things: how to use forty words when just four would do; and how to blow shit up.
Below is a brief dialogue from War Games, the 1983 Cold War science fiction film (see the movie trailer above), in which a young computer hacker, David Lightman, unwittingly accesses a US military supercomputer. In the film, Lightman gets the WOPR (War Operation Plan Response) supercomputer to run a nuclear war simulation, believing it to be a computer game. But the computer is connected to the U.S. nuclear weapons control system and unable to distinguish simulation from reality.
Falken (The WOPR creator): It’s a bluff, John, call it off.
John (the operations head): No, it’s not a bluff, it’s real.
Falken: General, what you see on these screens up here, is a fantasy, a computer-enhanced hallucination. Those blips are not real missiles, they’re phantoms.
John (to the General): Jack, there’s nothing to indicate a simulation at all.
Falken: General, you are listening to a machine (referring to WOPR – the supercomputer). Do the world a favor, and don’t act like one.
Alright, are we just being played? Are nukes, and the potential for a nuclear war, a bluff? Are pandemics a bluff? Is police brutality a bluff? Is the population control agenda a bluff? Is the Singularity a bluff?
Yellowstone National Park is closed to visitors right now due to virus fears. That hasn’t stopping park officials from the annual capture, quarantine and slaughter of hundreds of wild buffalo. The entire buffalo management program is built on lies and the unsubstantiated belief that brucellosis can be transmitted from buffalo to livestock. The irrefutable fact is that transmission from buffalo to livestock has never happened in the wild.
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.”
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.
“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).
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.
