Wilderness has its detractors and its defenders. Mark and I have both had, let’s call it disappointing, experienced with the Montana Wilderness Association. That’s all over now, water under the bridge. The Montana Wilderness Association do longer exists, it’s been renamed: “Wild Montana.” https://wildmontana.org/
It’s a relief in many ways to see this unveiling of the true nature of this NGO (non-governmental organization). Most of the founding members have passed on. The new membership and leadership is made of folks who cherish wilderness in a post-card kind of way; something resembling a still image on the side of a refrigerator. Concrete, static, “beautiful,” but loved for its groomed trails and conversational value at the wine and cheese gatherings in urban settings — part of an identity, but quite separate and apart from the domesticated, sophisticated, plastic-fantastic day-to-day lives of most “Wild Montana” subscribers.
Ironically, as MWA sheds its “wilderness skin,” Subaru is embracing its new, rugged, re-branded image. Meet the “Wilderness” in the comfort of a 2022 model all-wheel vehicle.
Montana Wild, like it’s former self ( MWA) is a wing of the Montana Democratic Party and a hiking club, nothing more. Even its commitment to hiking takes a backseat to trail commerce. There’s money to be made with all the new machines ripping up and down forest trails lately. Government subsidies are beginning to flood into the mechanized trail-use industry’s playground. Sorry hikers, it’s all about “new markets.”

My maternal instinct leads me to sense a relatively new feature has been added to the dystopian, anti-life, nature-defeating and dangerous game afoot . . . Given the abundance of anecdotal reports from women (both injected and non-injected with medical devices pertaining to COVID) exhibiting menstrual irregularities, and pregnant women enduring unexplained miscarriages, I have been occupied with ascertaining knowledge about the potential method of transmission. What I have uncovered, within the context of engineered nanoparticles (ENPs), may be applicable to plausible concerns that have surfaced in the past month.
Accordingly, multiple researchers have been questioning, speculating, and even debating amongst themselves with respect to the mode of passage from one jabbed person to another, who is unjabbed. These bright minds are also attempting to hone in on precisely what is being transmitted. Please read here (Makia Freeman posits that re-wiring genetic code may be affecting physical and energetic fields), and watch here (from the 28 to 37 minute timestamps, Dr. Carrie Madej suggests injected people may be acting as wireless antennae), here (David Icke hypothesizes the jabbed may be broadcasting a frequency), and here (five prominent physicians emphasize this is an undetermined form of transmission, but not viral shedding) in this regard.
The central question I would like to address is as follows: If ENPs are present in these new, experimental injections — purportedly addressing a new condition called COVID — are they able to be transmitted to non-injected individuals; and if so, by what mechanism?
A little good news for trees and critters in the upper Priest River area in northern Idaho. After years of battling the U.S. Forest Service and it’s work games, a federal judge wasn’t fooled by the “happy talk” and sent the agency back to the drawing board. This by no means is the end of this battle, but it does demonstrate, I believe, that the simple strategy of endless pressure, endlessly applied can produce positive results, even in the face of overwhelming odds against winning. The misuse of the “categorical exclusion” to NEPA (National Environmental Policy Act) is one of the Forest Service’s favorite administrative maneuvers to further one of the primary neo-liberal economic principles: deregulation.
Always good to stay positive, even when the world seems like it’s crashing down upon us. This piece appeared first in CounterPunch, April 30, 2021. https://www.counterpunch.org/

The upper Priest River area in the Idaho Panhandle National Forest has the largest contiguous area of old-growth cedar, hemlock, and grand fir in the interior Western United States and the largest concentration of ancient cedar stands in northern Idaho. Because of the bowl-shaped topography the high ridges on three sides capture cold air in the lower elevations and trap cool moist air in the summer. The result is that the low-elevation winter snowpack is deeper and more persistent than elsewhere in northern Idaho and summertime conditions are relatively moist and cool compared to neighboring areas which makes the area less susceptible to wildfires.
Yesterday, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) reintroduced our 23-million acre, 5-state ecosystem bill, the Northern Rockies Ecosystem Protection Act (S.1276) in the U.S. Senate (117th congress). First introduced in 1992 by Rep. Peter Kostmayer (D-PA), this legislation is the first of its kind to take a “beyond borders” (ecosystem) approach to public lands protection. Based on John and Frank Craighead’s work in Yellowstone National Park, primarily studying grizzly bears, we have tried to incorporate the most valuable fish and wildlife habitat in the “Wild Rockies bioregion” into legislative form to protect what’s left of “untrammeled nature” in the Lower 48.
Of course, not a single senator from the West signed on. But then again, not a single southern senator signed onto the Civil Rights Act. The (abusive) powers that be control the bills that pass through congress, lubed with big bags of money delivered by K Street lobbyists, so we’re not expecting passage in this congress. But what is life without vision?
The term “woke,” which refers to racial awareness, was tired even before all the wrong people started using it. It’s even been used to refer to Joe Biden, who seems barely sentient. People who refer to themselves in this manner are generally a far reach from any kind of real political or social awareness.
I generally use the term “self aware” as a descriptor for someone with a sense of both self and wakefulness. It means owning a mirror, and knowing how to use it. My older brother, in general the kindest and smartest man I have ever known, was not quite fully self aware. He strove to be perfect in life, but never knew why he did so. I came about the reason late in my own life, and long after Steve had passed. We grew up in a violent and angry household, most of which I missed (I cannot speak to memories before age five). Our mother was a saint, but then, I question why she married as she did, and why she stayed. (Catholics are not allowed to divorce, so that’s one reason. But I know that hundreds of thousands use forbiddance of divorce as the reason they quit the Church. That option was available to Mom.) Continue reading ““Woke” versus “self-aware””→

Spring has officially sprung on our humble homestead. We are actively planting our first round of organic seeds in fertile soil. Our gardens should soon be flowing abundantly with arugula, Parris Island romaine lettuce, French Breakfast radishes, Cherry Belle radishes, Bloomsdale spinach, Cascadia snap peas, Touchstone gold beets, and Early Wonder Tall Top beets. Patience is required as the seeds germinate and their roots take hold in the warming ground.
The techno-lords have also exercised patience over the past century. But no more. Their cravings seem to consume them, as they rush to achieve their end goals. They explain away the appearance of sudden change through two of their favorite concepts — Moore’s Law (computing power doubles roughly every 24 months) and its newer and speedier (albeit obscure) sibling, Koomey’s Law (computing power doubles roughly every 18 months). Additionally, as referenced in Part 1 of my series, they attribute the current expediency to a convenient pandemic scenario, which is referred to by foresight professionals as a black swan or wild card event. They brazenly desire to hijack Nature by utilizing her brilliant blueprint as a backbone, yet overlaying it with their environmentally and biologically embedded mechanical sensors, computerized circuits, and global positioning systems so as to create wind-up toy human automatons. Is this what we want for our children and grandchildren?
Two animal “totems” seem apropos to conceptualize for this essay — the serpent and the spider. Moving forward, it may help to imagine these two creatures within the context of cyber-physical transformation, each capable of inducing fear in people, yet, paradoxically, also exhibiting seductive qualities. I envision a crypto-crazed serpent shedding its blockchain skin, as it slithers its way through global industry and commerce(think container ships in canals; also see here on global container shipping and spatial networks), sector by sector, synergistically colluding with a cyber-savvy spider that is fervently occupied, weaving its strands of technological silk from one node to the next. The humans involved in the emergence of this cyber-biological ecosystem openly present their plans — mixing just enough “cautionary” sentiments, with a heavy dose of positivism, injected with a few sci-fi references for humorous allure. Just a reminder, the plan is for our physical bodies to be nodes in this automated and programmable cyber-physical convergence (referred to by the National Science Foundation and the National Nanotechnology Initiative, in 2017, as Nano-Bio-Info-Cognitive Convergence, or NBIC), littered with stealth “smart contracts” and pervasive “smart environments.” Have you given your consent to this engineered consummation?

Influenza and Zika and COVID, oh my!
Not to worry . . . the pandemic panopticon-obsessed problem-reaction solutionaries are here to save us! So they say . . .
In November 2020, I had an “aha” moment, when reading Hacking Matter: Levitating Chairs, Quantum Mirages, and the Infinite Weirdness of Programmable Atoms. The author, Wil McCarthy, who holds a patent in the sector of quantum dot technology, asserted, “At the nanoscale, where we find very tiny, very simple objects . . . the behavior of particles is governed by quantum mechanics . . . your ‘gut feel’ about how a particle should behave is virtually useless for predicting what it will actually do. This is because on the nanoscale, what we call ‘particles’ are really ‘probability waves’ . . . Probability waves can do ‘impossible’ things like leaping across an impenetrable barrier, or existing in many places at the same time, or apparently predicting the future, or being influenced by distant events much faster than the speed of light should allow.” McCarthy continued, “Objects much smaller than a micron in size start to behave in some very non-Newtonian ways . . .”
Essentially, at the nanoscale, quantum effects begin to dominate the behavior of matter. Let’s just say it gets more spooky.
I have a sense that when top scientists discovered the bio-nano realm with their atomic force microscopes, they saw a land of opportunity for profit (i.e., in the field of bio-nanomedicine), but I also think they saw a land of plenty — intriguing depths of additional space with which to harness control. The nano space, similar to secret societies, has been highly occulted, as unsuspecting human beings are not equipped with atomic force microscopes with which to peer into our bodies, and the bodies of neighboring plants and animals. There is an entire world inside all of us much smaller than the micro level. When heading way down to the bottom of life’s existence, life has a meaning and function that literallydisobeys the laws of gravity.
Is anyone still waiting for the end of all this global, digital flim-flam? Like perpetual (conventional) warfare, the ruling class can never quit inventing new methods to control the masses and snatching up an ever greater percentage wealth and natural resources (including “human capital” i.e. slaves). Psychopaths and sociopaths need someone else to blame for their own failings. But who is left to call an external enemy when the entire world is now controlled by one, unified power alliance? The so-called terrorists of the late 20th Century aren’t scaring anyone, and it’s pretty well known that they’re our terrorists, funded via our allies (Israel, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates etc.) in the Middle East.
CJ Hopkins over at Consent Factory, Inc. has a nice overview of our current situation.
“A globally-hegemonic system (e.g., global capitalism) has no external enemies, as there is no territory ‘outside’ the system. Its only enemies are within the system, and thus, by definition, are insurgents, also known as ‘terrorists’ and ‘extremists.’ These terms are utterly meaningless, obviously. They are purely strategic, deployed against anyone who deviates from GloboCap’s official ideology … which, in case you were wondering, is called ‘normality’ (or, in our case, currently, ‘New Normality’) … [t]he new breed of ‘terrorists’ do not just hate us for our freedom … they hate us because they hate ‘reality.’ They are no longer our political or ideological opponents … they are suffering from a psychiatric disorder. They no longer need to be argued with or listened to … they need to be ‘treated,’ ‘reeducated,’ and ‘deprogrammed,’ until they accept ‘Reality.’”
Note to readers: At the end of this post is a long excerpt from the book Weird Scenes Inside the Canyon, by Dave McGowan (fake death 11/22/2015). I don’t know what sent me down this course today, except that I got up, made coffee, and instead of the usual reading going on, I decided to find the video that I knew existed claiming that Jim Morrison is still alive. This is no surprise to me, though in our earlier efforts we looked hard for him, with no luck. Here’s the video. It’s about three minutes and the music is very enjoyable.
“I skimmed those websites and could tell at a glance the theory was purposeful misdirection just from their form. They tend to use picture fades and chops, sort of like DallasBoldPest or Tokarski. Although the theory ought to be pretty easy to prove with straight forward analysis like I do, they never get around to that.”
“DallasBoldPest” is is Ed Chiarini, or Dallas Goldbug, controlled opposition put in place to discredit photographic analysis of faces by making absurd comparisons, such as JFK becoming Jimmy Carter or Jim Morrison transforming into Rush Limbaugh (God rest his soul). Since there are so many around us who are actors, even people who have faked their deaths to assume other roles, it was important for Intel to get out in front and establish that speculation about such matters would be verboten, and Chiarani was given the task. He has served nobly, and Mathis in the above paragraph is using him as intended, to discredit me. Interesting.
