Ted’s essays

enemy of the state

I am in good company.  Perhaps the greatest ever is Murray Rothbard (March 2, 1926 – January 7, 1995). I use the present tense because he not only was an economic, cultural and political genius, he also was a prolific author of books that clearly explained the real world in contrast to the ones the supreme charlatans would have us believe in. His lessons live on through his writings and his students. I am a relatively inconsequential disciple of his, with America’s Great Depression and What Has Government Done to Our Money? among the more significant books in my reference library. Those two, by the way, along with Albert Jay Nock’s Our Enemy, The State and F. A. Hayek’s The […]

crusty old brains

With few exceptions, muffler bearing wrenches and lumber stretchers come to mind, tools have both suitable and unsuitable applications. As one saying goes, “If your only tool is a hammer, every job looks like a nail”. The converse of that is even more common where the wrench or whatever else is at hand becomes the hammer you need at the moment. The typical seventy-year-old brain is like that, another tool with good and poor uses. While there are significant variations, the old guys have seen a lot of successes and failures, learning from most of them what works in the long run contrasted with what definitely does not. On the other hand, our minds and bodies are more brittle. […]

constitutional sheriff

Elizabeth Hodge interviewed me when I was running for Ada County sheriff. I just tripped over it today. The interview explains the concept as well as I have seen it done. It is still valid, and incredibly valuable to those USofA counties who have elected constitutional sheriffs. Coming out of nowhere with no significant support, I shocked the 20-year incumbent by garnering 40,943 votes. The incumbent was startled. He had not been in any contest that close, and sure as heck didn’t expect it from my campaign. Unfortunately, it was only 26% of the votes. I suspect $10,000 in campaign finances could have won it for us. I’m happy nobody did that to me. I like where I am. […]

dimbulb savings time

Sure is a shame about the hour I am losing this weekend. It was the one hour of the year I intended to spend worshiping our government… maybe next year. While there is even a .gov website describing circadian rhythms, other than the governments of Arizona and Hawaii, the rest of the governments within the USofA seem to be clueless about it. I’ll put it in simple terms even a legislator can comprehend: Messing with our clocks messes us up. The ONLY purpose it serves is to twice every year demonstrate governmental control over our daily lives. It COSTS the economy money. It kills hundreds of people every year. And, most importantly, It pisses me off. One year I skipped […]

the fork in today’s road

Today is USofA election day, and the world is watching. The incredible 2016 shift in power surprised nearly everyone in the international, awake community. Most knowledgeable observers expected the deep state to do The Donald Takedown one way or another in response. Incredibly, the Trump team continues its thus-far mostly hidden progress against the hideously corrupt rulers that preceded them. I view “Trump” as a brand name not indicative of who is driving this bus. That is why I use “The Trump Team”. It seems they recruited him as the right man for the figurehead and public face job assignment, then they set him up, and continue to work tirelessly to keep him alive and progressing on their prime mission […]

Killing the Mockingbird

Q – Killing The Mockingbird from Ted Dunlap on Vimeo. Q is a group of patriots who were in the right place at the right time with the skills, courage and motivation to do battle with The Deep State. We are in the middle of that war. We are important participants. In under five minutes this video describes the situation and one of the roles we need to play in it. I copied it to my Vimeo channel as insurance against having it removed or made inaccessible in its native site. This particular front is over our sources of information, and therefore the hearts and minds of us all. The criminal cabal is losing, but will do everything in […]

one web unravels

Since we were paying attention, Christine Blasey Ford’s flimsy fiction trying to destroy Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation had no weight from the start. Rather than ignoring, or ridiculing the claims, The Team used judo to open an investigation “into Ford’s claims”, but freaking out the spiders by not limiting the investigation to the precarious web they wove. To destroy the cobweb, destroy the spider. Spanish proverb Kavenaugh’s SIX previous background checks weren’t enough for the senators who are at risk of appealing their upcoming treason tribunals to the Supreme Court. They were hoping that the stories and accompanying assaults on Brett and his family would get him to quit the Supreme Court path he was on. As disgusting and difficult […]

racing off the cliff

Racial divide is one of the ruling elite’s tools for keeping us fragmented and unable to muster defense against the .01% who run the world to the advantage of everybody OTHER THAN the remaining 99.99%… that is, to theirs. Strong males, independent thinkers, sharp scientists, knowledgeable historians are also among major threats they work to neutralize. But this post is about their racial divide. Suckers fall for it. Sadly the rest of us are outnumbered. Fortunately, the strong, independent, sharp, and knowledgeable are on our side. When it comes to a final tally, those attributes will be more important than being in the majority. In the article excerpted below, Julius makes a lot of great points. I highly recommend clicking […]

blah-blah-blah-gun control-blah-blah-blah

In the middle of all the noise from totalitarian government employees and lamestream media is the latest effort at restricting gun ownership. They never lose sight of their goal to have exclusive rights to lethal force. This argument has been won repeatedly by logic and data, but will never go away as long as there are people who lust for power, and never-ending increases in their power. They are hollow-shelled bullies. Bullies understand force. Nothing else. When met with anything remotely approaching equal force, they are cowards. We must never let them catch us napping. Amidst all the gun control yammering are three essays worth reading. I will give you excerpts and links to them. ——————————- Looking at the “gun […]

2006 Idaho governor candidate debate

Seeing Ron Paul championing my main 2006 campaign theme a decade later inspired me to look for this video. I couldn’t find it at the PBS website, so I uploaded a copy I had saved years ago. Debating in front of television cameras live to a state-wide audience was a terrifying to do, but probably the best performance of my political career. My biggest campaign theme was liberal tax credits for scholarships to private schools equal to a maximum of half what taxpayers spend on government schools. We would save money while liberating education. It was a good idea then. It still is.

Why Did it Have to be … Guns?

by L. Neil Smith Over the past 30 years, I’ve been paid to write almost two million words, every one of which, sooner or later, came back to the issue of guns and gun-ownership. Naturally, I’ve thought about the issue a lot, and it has always determined the way I vote. People accuse me of being a single-issue writer, a single- issue thinker, and a single- issue voter, but it isn’t true. What I’ve chosen, in a world where there’s never enough time and energy, is to focus on the one political issue which most clearly and unmistakably demonstrates what any politician—or political philosophy—is made of, right down to the creamy liquid center. Make no mistake: all politicians—even those […]

what day is it?

July 4th is flags, beer, barbecue and fireworks. What for? All of our lawyers are contracted affiliates of the British Bar Association. Sixty percent of the USofA senators and 43% of our congresscritters are lawyers. British bankers own “our” federal reserve, and, thus complete control of our money. So Brits own our courts, our legislature and our economy. What exactly did the colonists of 1776 win independence from? And about this flag USofA politicians, courts and ENFORCERS of their laws wave around… It is The Flag Of The Admiralty. What exactly are you celebrating?
