Today’s article reports on a major local issue that is undoubtedly being duplicated nationally: another back-door method the Federal regime is using to gain control. It is being done incrementally, insidiously, and indirectly…directly affecting us on the local levels. The Federal regime is bypassing the rights of the people by seizing control through municipal, local, and state governments. The Federal regime is bypassing the state legislatures, and if it can’t? The “color of law” is being used by bought-off “representatives” at the state level to force federal fiefdoms down the throats of citizens across the country.
I will cite this wonderful example of tyranny here in Montana, and then I ask you, the readers, to give your input. Your feedback is crucial to cross-referencing. Where applicable please mention any examples that are identical/similar in the states you reside within. I am asking for you guys and gals to open up the “cross chatter” to reveal both what is happening and what you’ve found. These reprehensible slugs, these mollusks that have the audacity to call themselves “representatives” are nothing more than community organizers who are “organizing the organized,” in true Leftist Alinsky fashion. Here we go, now.
Number 1: An Ordinance of the City of Kalispell, Montana was recently passed. This requires all pawn and second hand businesses to send information of anyone who sells an item above $50.00 (yes, you see it…fifty dollars!) to an online database. Ready for the kicker? The database is called LeadsOnline.com, and law enforcement has access to this information on private citizens at all times, without probable cause. The “intended purpose” (i.e. – the lie): to protect the public. I am listing some quotes from the ordinance, and (to summarize their contents) I am numbering them as such:
- An affected business is one that:
“…engages in the purchase, sale, trade, barter, recycling or exchange of secondhand goods, wares or merchandise; or any person who keeps any store, shop, room or place where secondhand goods, wares or merchandise of any kind or description, are bought, sold, traded, bartered, recycled or exchanged is defined as a secondhand dealer.”
- Information submitted to the database:
“The customer’s name and date of birth and documentation…” and also “The current street address, city, state and zip code of the customer’s residence.”
- “Business” compliance requirements:
“Every pawnbroker and secondhand dealer shall own, maintain and operate a computer system with Internet access. Every pawnbroker or secondhand dealer shall electronically file all records identified in Section 20-3 directly to an Internet subscription service designated as an agent of the police department as prescribed by the Chief of Police. The pawnbroker or secondhand dealer shall enter and upload such information from its records by no later than 5:00 PM on Friday of each week.”
…And now enter the “Snidely Whiplash” part of the whole deal…
- What about “Business” Compliance?
“If the transactions have not been entered into an electronic database according to this section, the Police Department shall serve a cease and desist order upon the business from any further transactions by the operator, until the operator is in compliance.”
Our law enforcement: “To Protect and Serve.” They left out the phrase, “Our Masters,” in the slogan. These are great, aren’t they? The last item reminds me of the first “Robocop” movie, with that big robot-weapon that told a business executive, “Drop your weapon. You have thirty seconds to comply,” and then it killed him anyway even after he dropped it. Let’s examine some of the parts of this “noble ordinance,” and see what the elected nobility really wants to do:
Item #1: This effectively forces compliance on pawnshops, thrift stores, mom and pop secondhand furniture and house ware stores, gun shows, farmers’ markets. The phrase, “bought, sold, traded, bartered, recycled or exchanged” just means transfer in any way. City ad valorem and taxes increase, but the biggies? 1) This is the backdoor method to outlaw private sales of firearms, and 2) Maintain an active database accessible to law enforcement with the name, birthdate, and address of someone who purchases a firearm (of course with the firearm information as well).
In Montana you can just sell somebody a firearm without an FFL, as long as you’re not knowingly selling to Jack the Ripper/a convicted felon. Read Number 1’s quote carefully. “..or any person who keeps any store, shop, room or place where secondhand goods….[exchanged].” Such is completely subjective and open to any interpretation they see fit.
Joe Snuffy has a couple of shotguns in his rented studio apartment and he trades one to Jim Sniffy for a couple of fishing rods. Bingo: he is now “out of compliance” if they deem it so.
Item #2: Self-explanatory, this creates a registration for a firearm via the backdoor as well as a nightmare of invasion of privacy.
Item #3: This part sets up the Kalispell Chief of Police as the “Sheriff of Nottingham,” the one who decides the “agent” who will handle all of the data. The order forces businesses to have the Internet, and the “..Internet subscription service designated as an agent of the police department..” No privacy: all businesses have to send their information and records each week.
Item #4: The bottom line: the police department can shut down a noncompliant business. Nifty, huh? No recourse except to comply with the police department.
Now all of that “public safety and security” stuff is nonsense, the reason being that the pawn shops are already using a database to help track down stolen items and screen nefarious characters. The database has been in place for years. This new invasion of people’s rights to privacy is:
- To enable these politicians to stick their muzzles into the people’s funds and steal more through taxation,
- To gain a foothold into controlling businesses, and
- To carry out the regime’s intentions: national registration and data on all privately owned firearms.
The county (Flathead County, Montana) was involved in the Kalispell city meetings, and their representatives indicated that the county would follow suit. They would do it in the same manner: county officials enacting an identical ordinance that would not be voted on by the people.
If you’re interested in reading it, here is the direct link to the city’s website:
The city of Missoula (with a population of about 80,000) is getting ready to vote on their version of this ordinance. So there we have it. Readers, let us know what is going on in your home states in a similar vein to this event. I don’t mean to be a harbinger of doom; however, realistically we are watching the incremental demise of every aspect of American life. I look forward to hearing from each of you and hope to learn a lot more on this. I’ll do another piece when the county ordinance begins to surface. Have a great day and I hope to hear from you guys and gals soon!

gettin’ so ya can’t tell the difference any more
the STUPID just BURNS, here in mur’ca! they are just everywhere, and they can’t even see their stupidty when you SPELL out how they have given away nearly ALL of their freedom….all in the name of SAFETY…we deserve NEITHER anymore.
Local politicians better watch their step passing stuff to screw their locals. I bet their homes are not lined with plate armor.
I used to have a vacation house that I shared with 4 other couples in Peru on the beach. It was very cheap and we would go down for the winter every few years or so. About 10 years ago they implemented a national ID card. Of course it was to help catch terrorists. If you were a foreigner on a passport you don’t need one. Then about 5 years ago they were trying to catch the Narcotraficers. So when you purchased a big ticket item you had to present your ID and they took down your ID number and registered it. Today, you go to the local food store they want your ID if you purchase something. All you hear from people today is how their neighbor had all his possessions seized by the government because he was living beyond his means (according to the gov) Im pretty sure that if you are an Expat, your purchases are reported to the Embassy. Ive known people who have been picked up by the foreigner police there and escorted to the US embassy and questioned on how they made a purchase of this or that. That country went from a very free place to a totalitarian fascist state in 15 short years. Just what they are trying to do to us.
Well, that pretty much answers my question about what’s happening in other places in the world. 🙁 But to think I’d have to give up vast amounts of person information just because I want to buy used vacuum from a flea market is …is … … aarrrgghhh!!!! Am I going to tune in to short wave radio with it? What about a ruffle-making attachment to a sewing machine? A spare vacuum and a ruffler are suspect items? good grief…
Its not about your safety or terrorism or anything similar. It is about taxing you again and again and again.
You can lead a horse to water but……its amazing how trusting the sheep are of the gate…..
when you gotta show your “papers” to get through an airport and onto a plane(and submit to a fullbody SEARCH), then amurca is LOST!
Just one more reason to go Anonymous… read the book, crap! forgot the name of the book! basically, talks about becoming unidentified… never give your real name or address for anything. JJ Lune is the author’s name, I BELIEVE.
BASICALLY, he talks about not using those little store cards which identifies you, never give your real address out to anyone except for close intimates, never stay at motels, don’t have any kind of real ID, unless absolutely necessary. Remain anonymous.
Jeremiah Johnson says:
“These reprehensible slugs, these mollusks that have the audacity to call themselves “representatives” are nothing more than community organizers who are “organizing the organized.”
Q: Do you vote JJ???
If so, then you and your fellow voters are responsible for the political climate in Montana. You asked for it!
By engaging the system (voting), you validate the system.
Just say NO.
Withdraw your consent.
Starve the Beast of what it craves the most… Your consent (vote)!!!
“By engaging the system (voting), you validate the system. Just say NO. Withdraw your consent. Don’t vote! Starve the Beast of what it craves the most… Your consent (vote)!!!”
YMWW: This is the DUMBEST thing that you have ever posted. Yes, I know, you have posted many dumb things; but this is your DUMBEST. Why?
The PTB DO NOT want your consent. They DO NOT want your participation. Retards and Demturds each have about 30% of the electorate.
The LEFT has a slight majority in Party affiliated voters, therefore they can win every election if the Party Faithful turn out to vote, and the Independent vote stays home.
They are counting on your apathy and non-participation to further their Agenda (21). By not participating, you GIVE your consent to their Agenda (21). If you want to say “No!” vote against the Party in power.
Politics is the RESPONSIBILITY of FREE MEN and WOMEN. Engage the PTB at every level. By ballot if possible, by bullet if necessary to keep the US Constitution and your God given rights intact!!!
Start a FREEDOM CELL where you live. Engage!!! 🙂
The democratic process in Amerika is pathetic joke, and you have to be a complete idiot to invest yourself in it’s politics.
The system you worship DK is a complete sham. The ancient Greeks would call you an idiot (idiotes) if you wouldn’t participate in their democracy and focused on your own affairs. Today, you have to be an idiot to put any faith in politics.
Engaging in politics and voting for “leaders” in your beloved system only produces people who are concerned about their own status. They have little interest in you beyond providing whatever minimum benefits are necessary to buy your vote.
And now, in their (politicians) efforts to consolidate more power and take greater control, they’re hitting the accelerator as they drive this country off the cliff.
Putting any faith in this system is an exercise in futility. What was it that Einstein said? “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
Q: What do you do if someone offers you politics?
A: Just say (hell) NO!
Q: What would they do if they held an election and nobody showed up?
A: They’d drop the pretext of “democracy” and show you right quick who really runs the show!
Here endeth the lesson. No need to thank me DK.
YMWW, I know we’ve had some differences in the past, but I totally agree with your post about the system. I never really believed in it anyway. At least in theory it sounded wonderful. But in real life, it’s a lost cause. I believe we have to take the whole thing down and just start over from scratch. take care.
And you really think or hope that “nobody” is going to show up on election day?!?!?!that’s even more idiotic and on the loony side. You have to participate and you have to constantly challenge the system if you can afford it. When I say “afford”, I mean UP to being able to give you life if you have to as the evil does not mind killing the righteous.
Showing up on election day isn’t going to help in the blue state of New Mexico. Welfare buys votes–from Americans AND illegal aliens. Pawn shops have been subjected to an identical law here, and now metal recycling companies as well.
What provisions are there in the law to ensure the company is actually providing accurate info to the online database? Could a business appear to comply, but just make up names, addresses, ID #’s and item description?
You are all correct in your way.
What you are all avoiding is what it really is, Election Fraud.
Take back your elections. Yes, seriously, they are the peoples voice. You are the ones in control of your government – read your state Constitution (question the ones online as many have been rewritten).
No machine votes, hand write them. ALL counts at every level done in public view,but safe from disruption, and VERIFIABLE – here in the USA. Fire everyone who ever worked in the vote booths, particularly the ones that ran everything in your state. Notify them that you are running a *Grand Jury investigation of their actions to make sure no crimes were committed.
*“The grand jury is mentioned in the Bill of Rights, but not in the body of the Constitution. It has not been textually assigned, therefore, to any of the branches described in the first three Articles. It is a constitutional fixture in its own right. In fact the whole theory of its function is that it belongs to no branch of the institutional government, serving as a kind of buffer or referee between the Government and the people”.
“Thus, citizens have the unbridled right to empanel their own grand juries and present “True Bills” of indictment to a court, which is then required to commence a criminal proceeding. Our Founding Fathers presciently thereby created a “buffer” the people may rely upon for justice, when public officials, including judges, criminally violate the law.” (Misbehavior, “Good Behaviour” requirement)
“The grand jury is an institution separate from the courts, over whose functioning the courts do not preside, we think it clear that, as a general matter at least, no such “supervisory” judicial authority exists. The “common law” of the Fifth Amendment demands a traditional functioning grand jury.”
“Although the grand jury normally operates, of course, in the courthouse and under judicial auspices, its institutional relationship with the judicial branch has traditionally been, so to speak, at arm’s length. Judges’ direct involvement in the functioning of the grand jury has generally been confined to the constitutive one of calling the grand jurors together and administering their oaths of office. The grand jury’s functional independence from the judicial branch is evident both in the scope of its power to investigate criminal wrongdoing, and in the manner in which that power is exercised.”
“The grand jury ‘can investigate merely on suspicion that the law is being violated, or even because it wants assurance that it is not.’ It need not identify the offender it suspects, or even “the precise nature of the offense” it is investigating. The grand jury requires no authorization from its constituting court to initiate an investigation, nor does the prosecutor require leave of court to seek a grand jury indictment. And in its day-to-day functioning, the grand jury generally operates without the interference of a presiding judge. It swears in its own witnesses and deliberates in total secrecy.”
“Recognizing this tradition of independence, we have said the 5th Amendment’s constitutional guarantee presupposes an investigative body ‘acting independently of either prosecuting attorney or judge”
“Given the grand jury’s operational separateness from its constituting court, it should come as no surprise that we have been reluctant to invoke the judicial supervisory power as a basis for prescribing modes of grand jury procedure. Over the years, we have received many requests to exercise supervision over the grand jury’s evidence-taking process, but we have refused them all. “it would run counter to the whole history of the grand jury institution” to permit an indictment to be challenged “on the ground that there was incompetent or inadequate evidence before the grand jury.” (Plus it would be a crime, since the Grand Jury is the peoples tool, and NOT under any branch of either the state or federal gov.) Justice Antonin Scalia writing for the majority said In the Supreme Court case of United States v. Williams, 112 S.Ct. 1735, 504 U.S. 36, 118 L.Ed.2d 352 (1992)
The Preamble to the US Constitution says, “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
This means that the people themselves are the last word on all of those who serve within the branches of our governments, though that “last word” must also be “in Pursuance thereof” the US Constitution.
You don’t EVER want to lie to the cops. Never,… under any circumstance. If they put in fake info, for starters, once the cops find out as they will, the place is illegible to be shut down.
So we get down to where only one person still votes, then one person elects all elected officials and runs everything his way. Those who vote decide elections, those who do not are not a part of the decision.
Not voting just gives someone else the say so in who is elected, and they will almost certainly elect someone you don’t want. So at least vote third party if you want to make a voting statement, a party losing by a small margin will actually take notice of that.
“Those who vote decide elections.”
Well you’re certainly naive.
“Those who vote decide nothing. Those who count the vote decide everything.” ~ Joseph Stalin
Q: How many voters does it take to change a light bulb?
A: None. Voters can’t change anything.
If voting changed anything they’d call it terrorism, and those involved in it, terrorists!
BTW… People accuse me of being a non-voter; on the contrary I tell them, I never miss a vote, and my vote is always consistent!
You missed her point completely. If no one else voted, the one guy who wants power would cast his own vote for himself… And win.
Either way it’s academic. Your “perfect world” where kings and tyrants change their ways because no one comes to their party will never happen. There will always be groups of people voting to serve their own interests be it financial or otherwise. You can join the process and perhaps at least slow the process by which the republic is burned to the ground, or you can hide in your hole and wait for the eventual collapse. Just remember no time in history has and true democratic republic has ever fallen to be replaced by anything short of outright dictatorship. I’m all for slowing the fall.
“If no one else voted, the one guy who wants power would cast his own vote for himself… And win.”
LOL! What kind of garbage is that???
Let me see if I understand your argumentation.
So you’re the only voter… and you vote for yourself… and you win the election… and based upon that, you think you’re going to tell another man how to conduct his life?
Good luck with that son!!!
I’m all for slowing the fall.”
Why??? The music IS gonna stop, and the shit IS gonna hit the fan. The longer it’s delayed, the worse it will be!!!
“Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today.” ~ Benjamin Franklin
“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over lousy fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the worlds great civilizations before they decline has been 200 years. These nations have progressed in this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; from faith to great courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to complacency; from complacency to apathy; from apathy to dependency; from dependency back again to bondage.” ~ Alexander Fraser Tyler, Cycle Of Democracy (1770)
This country is entering the final sequence. Buckle up. It’s gonna be a bumpy ride.
The reason we have OBAMA now is because millions of people decided they would show those rascally politicians and not vote. Well, they really show those politicians didn’t they????
Voting does not matter in the Agenda….. both sides play the same field…..
Those so called reps do not go out there and show everybody their red devil’s horns during their campaign for one. And Second, whether you vote or not, you lose. The best course of action is to consider hiring PI’s to dig dirt about them and show them for who they really are. And also give chance to the underdog. Many people in this country would likely vote for the one who has “charisma” regardless of their corruptness. If the candidate looks quirky alongside their stand on different subject and its veracity, they are simply history. Also at the city, state, and government level, Commissioners are vital in keeping the elected on the right path. If you just “don’t vote” and expect things to get better, they are not going to get better, you are going to speed up the process of things getting even worse.
Anon, I never use store cards and I use cash for all my preps. I keep the lowest profile I can.
I use one at the grocery store that originally belonged to someone else. I also loan it out to anyone in line who needs it. The store’s computer doesn’t know whether my card belongs to a Mexican or whoever.
Agreed. I have a couple of different store cards for the different grocery stores, each under an alias. They don’t have a clue and I get my discounts every time.
Hell, I can probably get a Green Card using that as ID under Obola’s Rules for ILLEGALS. 🙁
“I have a couple of different store cards for the different grocery stores, each under an alias. They don’t have a clue.”
So what’s the point of that absurd charade DK? To “ghost;” to be “anonymous!” You’re registered to vote fool. They already know who, what, and where you are!!!
That secret squirrel stuff with the grocery discount cards is funny shit DK!
When the internments begin, they’ll (your elected rulers) hold an election, and when the morons (that’s you) show up to exercise their “right to vote,” they’ll instead be given an all expenses paid one way trip to the Amerikan gulag.
Ain’t democracy grand!
That secret squirrel stuff with the grocery discount cards is funny shit DK!…
YMWW, I couldn’t help but laugh at that one also. Nothing against DK, but you’re right, he’s already exposed.
i don’t need a card, i just type in a friend’s phone number, i get my discount, …and she gets the brownie points….they must think she’s their BEST customer!(has 8 kids of her own),
Yeah but the store’s facial recognition software already knows your Cheating the system at the checkout and has put you on Top of the list…… you got to thinks
“”””Hell, I can probably get a Green Card using that as ID under Obola’s Rules for ILLEGALS. :-(“”””
LMAO. That needs to be engraved on a brass plate and posted on the lobby of one of the federal buildings. Love it!!!!
One time a guy who slipped inside one of those Mega chain grocery stores, I don’t want to mention any names. He sued them for medical bills or something like that. They looked up his card, noticed he purchases lots of alcohol with it, went out, used that and claimed he could have been intoxicated while on their premises. LOL.
Yep, when time comes, TPTB would use anything in their disposal to get the upper hand.
Well Cuz you shouldn’t have any trouble keeping a low profile, you always was lower than a snakes belly. But we Love You Man! Come on home and get out of that place before the SHTF.
That’s funny you mentioned that. About 15 years ago, I stumbled upon a vid that covered the coverage of the real purpose of one’s birth certificate. And in a nutshell, it basically expounded on how it is in fact the first document that allows the state to initiate the tracking down of the individual. It went on to claim that it is modeled on this other document that a merchant ship is supposed to hand over along with the merchandise they drop on the dock once it arrives to a city port for whomever owns that merchandise. In other words, one of, if not the main purpose of the birth certificate is to alert the state that a new ‘property’ has been delivered unto thee. Lots of evil takes place completely unbeknownst to the individual.
heck, ever read the fine print when you buy a property. Basically, the county inserts itself into the contract stating if you buy the property you agree to pay taxes. Welp, certainly one should be able to buy property using another contract, but no lawyer has EVER mentioned that to me!
We’re talking about the Value of Anonymity here. And I brought up a side that hardly anybody knows about to the so called act of “self identification”. So in other words, perhaps it’s a good thing to insure one’s anonymity whenever it is possible and doable for them.
Craigs List = No Tracking.
wrong. Not long ago as in maybe within couple years (maybe more or less), the cops tracked a prostitution ring that operates within the walls of and not to mention the blessings of craig’s list. They run it to the ground because it was using under age girls,and because of it now, craigs list does not allow such transations to take place on that site. Before, the money those criminals used to make ranged in the millions per month I think according to the agency that blew them away. So as result that traffic moved to “silk road” which was also busted not long ago and it’s founder put away for like 10 years as it used to deal all sorts of obscure evil crap. So, no tracking? I don’t think so… now a day everything can be tracked.
I made this same comment a couple of days ago and really got no response. The Courts ruled that NSA Bulk Data Collection was never authorized by Congress. This is where they collect and store all of your personal phone calls. This is part of the Un Patriot Act which is up for renewal the 1st of June. So please call, write or email you Congress Critter to stop this intrusion. They won’t really hear what you have to say on SHTF. Trekker Out.
they ALREADY KNOW what we think MT! but that’s what being a politician IS in america,…selling yer soul for a handful of money, or should i say a suitcase full of money??
BC of DOOM,
you got it, look how many politicians are wealthy! they are NOT in it for the good of the country or its PEOPLE which in my opinon means they are crooks and should be handled as such! tar ,feathered and HUNG!
Jeremiah, My above comment and BCOD response is exactly why we are where we’re at. I know everyone doesn’t have the time or initiative to go to town hall meeting or to write their elected officals on ever issue, but it only takes a few minutes to email them about your concerns. As for town hall meetings it seems that men have given up their rolls as leaders. No offense, but most women tend to be more liberal on their outlook on things and at most meetings that I have been to now adays, its usually women that have the floor making their thoughts known. It really gets a little old hearing people say, well they know what we think, or it really does no good to tell them, because they do what they want anyway. Well the old saying still stands true,”The squeaking wheel gets the grease” if you think your squeak here on SHTF gets their attention, your sadly wrong. And if you have hours to read and make comments on SHTF don’t say you don’t have 5 minutes to email your Congressman on issues that affect our Freedom. If you don’t make the least little effort to keep the Freedom you now have, you sure as hell ain’t going to fight for it when the fire comes down. And just remember, the time you’ll take to attack what I have said, you could have emailed your Congress Critter on some pertinent issue. Trekker Out. Take A Stand, Or Shut Up!
ok, mountain trekker, i’m going to show up at a couple meetings with an oathkeeper friend of mine to see just what goes on there at those city council meetings…i already KNOW from what he tells me, for example they are getting ready to build 15,000 homes here for one of obama’s planned communities(a city/country, if you will)….after much protest from the citizens…you know, like where do we get the WATER…and POWER for these homes, and we don’t want a bunch of illegal aliens living next to OUR city….but they get the go-ahead anyway, after MUCH protest from the citizens…..how about the TARP program when the bankers were going under if they didn’t get the 700 BILLION from U.S.?…..three HUNDRED to ONE….AGAINST giving them the money, but they DID IT ANYWAY!….and then got re-elected within a couple months!….you’re WRONG, MT….except on things that don’t MATTER much, …then you might make a difference…but on anything important,…THEIR money will CRUSH you….it don’t matter whether it’s a city council, a governor, or a senator, or a county commisioner,…when you get elected, you get money shoved in your face to do the WRONG thing…and if you won’t “go along”, they will make trouble for you….and you might even get breitbarted…and they sure as hell don’t want to make any accusations of their cronys, because they will dig into YOUR closet and find the skeletons. no, our system is ab-so-fukin’-lootly(pun intended) BROKEN!…no, as i look across the looted plain, i see nothing but crooked politicians….there is no hope left, until we root out these thieving bunch of vipers! when the last politician is strangled with the entrails of the last banker,…only THEN will we have any hope in amur’ca.
BCOD I don’t totally disagree with what your saying, but once you root out these thieving bunch of vipers, who are you going to replace them with? Apathy is what is destroying us, people either don’t participate or they really don’t vote their conscience. I often hear people say we need term limits and then they run right down and vote for the same person time after time. They even vote for a person that opposes every thing they believe in, because that person is in their “Party of Choice”. Is Amur’ca in trouble because of Obama, or is it because we have a majority of people that think like him? Trekker Out. Make Yourselves Sheep, And the Wolves Will Eat You!
and while we’re at it, let’s talk of the supreme’s decision on obamacare, that made it all “LEGAL”. as i recall, it was judge roberts that was the swing vote, and it’s been said that “they” got to him and forced him to vote for it being legal….he must have spent DAYS figgering out how to get around all the language that it took to supposedly make it legal to FORCE all americans to buy insurance or pay the penalties…seems to me there was a LOT of “squeaky wheels” fired up about that one..the majority of americans want free healthcare indeed….wait ’til they see what their “free healthcare” has COST THEM!
My barber said people were canceling their cuts because they couldn’t afford an April trimming after filing tax returns. I said Huh(?) but now find that they charged folks 1% if they weren’t covered, and this year it will jump to 3%. Lets call it the “John Roberts Tax”.
I hope that dirty toad rots.
Considering the feds mess up everything they touch, what can one expect???
JJ you say an Ordinance of the City of Kalispell was passed. I would venture to say this was not on a ballot but was passed at a city council meeting. Well the problem is, and I know from experience that if your at a meeting regardless of where or what kind, and just for numbers sake, we’ll say 20 people show up and they vote on an issue and 19 vote one way and your the 1 that voted the other way, who do you think is considered the nut on the fringe. It doesn’t really matter what the issue was, when there is a large majority that votes one way, that is the way it is going. So Patriots had better start being proactive instead of being reactive. Trekker Out.Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum!
—-‘protect and serve’ was taken off most police cars etc several years back, after 2 SC rulings that said ‘that’ is NOT what the police were to do—-of coarse the SC didn’t say what the police were to ‘do’, but I’ll bet you can figure out their job description——
“to punish and enslave” was written on the Mustang cop car in the Transformers movie.
Stupid, that’s right. The federal and state supreme courts of all 50 states have ruled numerous times that police serve the government, not the people, and that police have no obligation to help any citizens whatsoever. When you’re facing a confrontation with anyone, you’re on your own and have to fend for yourself. That’s just the way it is. whenever it happens to me, I’ll just handle it any way I consider necessary, regardless of what anyone’s laws say. All that counts is getting out of the situation alive.
That’s the truth. Our cop cars now say “In (goose) Step With Our Community”. A year ago, they shot a guy to death for camping in the desert–that for over 100 years was just outside of the city limits, but thanks to the city’s buying up “open Spaces” is now city property. Although people traveling through have camped in the desert around here since the 1700’s, now, if a camper refuses the unsmiling police officer’s “lawful Order”, he may be executed. True, the actual triggermen in that particular case are being criminally prosecuted, it’s only because the local DA was being investigated by the local PD for witness tampering, witness intimidation and bribing witnesses who were victims of her drug-addicted burglar son. It is the first time in decades that a police shooting hasn’t been swept under the rug by a carefully rigged “Grand Jury” procedure that made it impossible for a jury to find ANY police shooting unjustified…
“To file reports and eat doughnuts” just didn’t have the same ring to it…
Sounds to me like Black Market is going to become the norm.
What the “F” don’t they understand about not be infringed!
Screw them let them come for them I will give them to them after I have fired every round I have.
There are four branches of government, not three. They are the Executive, Legislative, Judicial and Bureaucratic.
Its not supposed to be this way but it is.
You forgot the media.
Reports Suggest That Turkey, GCC/Arab League Are Preparing To Invade Syria
if I was Assad
I’d blow the Saudi oil fields to hell
he’s going out
may as well go with a bang
This was Solzhenitsyn’s take on tyranny:
“And how we burned in the camps latter, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, polkers, or whatever else was at hand? After all, you knew ahead of time that those bluecaps were out at night for no good purpose. And you could be sure ahead of time that you’d be cracking the skull of a cutthroat. Or what about the Black Maria sitting out there on the street with one lonely chauffeur — what if it had been driven off or its tires spiked. The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!
If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more — we had no awareness of the real situation. We spent ourselves in one unrestrained outburst in 1917, and then we hurried to submit. We submitted with pleasure! ….We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.
Alexandr I. Solzhenitsyn
The Gulag Archipelago (1970)
The German Magazine DER SPIEGEL ask the great writer Alexandr Solzhenitsyn:
“Your recent two volume work ‘200 Years Together’ was an attempt to overcome a TABOO against discussing the common history of Russia and the Jews. These two volumes have provoked the Jews. These two volumes have provoked mainly PERPLEXITY IN THE WEST. YOU SAY THE JEWS ARE THE LEADING FORCE OF A GLOBAL CAPITAL and they are the FOREMOST DESTROYERS OF THE BOURGEOISE (those in the upper or merchant class who does not come from ARISTOCRATIC ORIGIN). Are we to conclude from your rich array of sources that the Jews carry more responsibility for the failed soviet experiment”?
“I avoid exactly what your question implies. I do not call for any sort of scorekeeping or comparison between moral responsibility of one people or another, moreover I completely exclude the notion of responsibility of one nation towards another. All I am calling for is SELF-REFLECTION. You can get the answer to your question by reading the book itself. Every people must answer morally for all of its part–including the past which is SHAMEFUL. Answer by what means? BY ATTEMPTING TO COMPREHEND: HOW COULD SUCH A THING BE ALLOWED”?
Solzhenitsyns’ book Russia and the Jews can be found at The Barnes Review. You will understand why that book never saw the light of day….it was banned in most of Europe.
Reviews and excerpts of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s Two Hundred Years Together:
Solzhenitsyn quote continued:
“Where in all this did we go wrong? And could it happen again? It is in that spirit, specifically, that it would behoove the Jewish people to answer, both for the revolutionary cut throats and the ranks willing to serve them. Not to answer before other people, but to oneself, to ones conscience, and before God. Just as we Russians must answer–for the pogroms, for those merciless arsonists peasants, for those crazed revolutionary soldiers, for those savage sailors.”
America is being set up for a repeat of what happened in Russia.
well sir, here I am agin, just a’ playin my favorite game. Don’t matter to me none what the thread is all about, it’s my chance to bitch and moan about my wet depends that need to be changed all the time ’cause o’them damn zogs god dammit!
Over at the daily sheeple, “When Your Back’s Against The Wall, Don’t Be There”. Interesting article.
well, just one more reason to stay out of pawn shops— they are too expensive anyhow! As for the little mom and pop stores– I REFUSE to give out any personal ID information to the little drats.
My brother-in-law had a nice pawn shop in Roswell, GA from 1990-2000. I got great deals from there, would have to work on Saturdays for those deals. But well worth it.
He sold it when another pawn shop owner/friend close by had 3 black guys come in wearing trench coats in summer.
They killed him for a little money…
That friend’s shop was named ‘The Happy Hocker’.
Bless all here…
Eppe, every computer I’ve ever had except for one came from pawn shops and I got them cheaper than new ones. Now I’ll have to stay away from them. Damn.
WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? JUST FEED ‘EM HOT LEAD NUTRIENTS LIKE THE THOUSANDS OF OTHERS YOU DO!
Boreheart, lay down the crack pipe.
The people will roll over for this as they do every other outrage. As long as they are told it is for their safety they don’t care.
The watershed moment approaches:
320,000,000 = total US population
74,500,000 = children *1
40,300,000 = age 65+ *2
Simple math time
= 205,200,000 working age
= 112,006,000 potentially working full or part-time
= 41.2407% true unemployment rate
The coin shops are going to love this. All those Morgan’s ya got are “used”…Have to sell ’em one at a time, and hope ya don’t have a key date to hock!
I can see a boom in fake ID…
They’ve had the same ordinance in our fair burg for some years now, the reason behind it was to deal with the tweakers and druggies pawning stolen stuff, and scrap metals.
The coin shop got told they had to document ID for coin sellers, too. Lots of brassed off customers.
Wow, and i was told Montana etc were really free states, guess they not so free afterall.
Montana has been invaded since the early days of there revolt and the feds sent in undercover peolpe and they have bloomed into just a gestapo state, kinda like the washington DC area. whoke country needs a quick flush!
if you and others have not noticed when i get really pissed off at things my spell check goes void as well!
and lately it seems it has been most of the time!!
I just shut off the spell check, usually is more frustrating than helpful!
Weez taint s worried bout no spellulaitin anywho!
Our state is solid democrat, just token repubs here and there, is really a shame because the old school democrats were quite conservative, the dem/repub lable was just a lable like as in a team name, now even old school democrats are wondering what the hell. Is sad, truly paradise lost, still beautiful though, and hopefully a total collapse will cause our state and local governments to bust and have to restart, and restart back to the old conservative local values, can hope anyway, may never happen, butcan hope.
The “redoubt” forgot about Opsec. You tend to draw the attention and ire of the Elites when you actively advertise the fact you are a concentrated population of free men.
I’m surprised I don’t see this here on n.y.i didn’t expect to see this in flyover red states means freedom is dead!
“I suspected I was just a part of a racket at the time. Now I’m sure of it. Like all members of the military profession, I never had an original thought until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of the higher ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service.”

Looks like you have taken the red pill. Welcome to the club of the men and women who stand ready in the shadows and await their opportunity.
What say you, Jeremiah? Is it time? Which box should we be using? What’s the plan?
Even though such an ordinance in all likelihood would be applied to firearms, IMHO that would be a misapplication of the ordinance.
The US gov and most states have firearms defined as firearms, not goods or merchandise, therefore not applicable to this ordinance.
If firearm is not listed, then firearm would be exempt.
Hey Kalispell—you’re not the boss of me.
…be safe….stay the course….BA.
Yep, it’s happening here in red Alaska, too. The pawn shops and second hand stores, as well as consignment stores are limiting what they sell, as certain things have to be reported to the authorities. “To help against thieves trying to sell their loot” supposedly.
Fayetteville Ga…. To buy and sell scrap gold silver you must give thumb print and picture along with your personal info… damn commies!!!
If the city of Kalispell ever tried to apply their law to gunshows, the backlash would resemble Ferguson.
And the Montana Shooting Sports Association would kick Kalispell’s little ass so hard they would be begging for mercy.
Now as for cities outside of Montana, many would love to use such a loophole law to go after gun sales.
P.S., Jeremiah, I like all of your articles. Please keep up the great work. I just disagree that gunshows will ever be effected in the Flathead.
against the NWO-Dirt, please sign,
all they are in power have to know, that we do not like the NWO-Dirt, also the Pope!
Did you click on this link before you posted it? Also, do you know that the Vatican is one of the World religious institutions that are listed IN SUPPORT of the NWO-“dirt”?!?!?! Count on your little tiny pope to get kaka done for ya. Like it’ll happen…
can’t buy or sell sound familiar?
Can if you get the Mark! Er I mean the proper ID. Trekker Out
and cop lovers always want to say don’t blame the cops.
Such blind bootlicking BS crap I’ve ever had the misfortune of reading.
y’all gots to know that nuthin is EVER a cops fault, EVER! even if you die doing the course of our ” investigations”, that doesn’t mean jack stacked up to the safety and innocence that MUST be first and foremost awarded to all the cowards in blue.
Wonder if they apply this to auctioneers? Estate auctions in my AO are the best way to acquire junk PMs, and often some reasonable firearms, too. If you have the stamina to sit through a hundred box lots of ugly china, used bedclothes, uglier bricabrac, faded collections of Kennedy or Elvis memorabilia, junk furniture, used-up washing machines and dryers, rusty yard tools, and whatnot.
In Ohio, when one checks in to be a buyer at an auction, one needs to provide an ID to get a bidder number. Auctioneers collect state sales tax from buyers, unless the sale is AT the estate, or you have a vendor license (tax exempt number).
But… if you attend, not check in, and watch the dealers that bid, you can approach them and ask if they would like to sell whatever item(s) they won for a quick profit.
You know what they paid, so you try to negotiate a fair price.
This works on non dealers as well.
It takes time and patience.
When I attended gun shows, there were always the folks that wander around carrying items for sale. No FFL, no BATF forms… just items for cash.
I don’t see how TPTB will be able to keep track of it all. Hell, they are still sending SS benefits to dead people!!!
The day that TPTB require an ID at a yard sale, though, is the day I crawl back through the slight opening I use to visit the real world, and close it shut behind me.
If they come for my gold and silver, I will give them the US Mint ASE Proofs/special sets I got every year from 1986 to 2012. They will never see the tubes of BU eagles, maple leafs, philharmonics, or junk silver.
I haven’t bought any silver/gold from the coin shop in years, but when I did, I paid cash… no receipt, no tax.
I might take some cash, see if it is still in business, and see if I can snag a 10th oz AGE or two without any documentation. It has been over 5 years since I walked through their door.
JJ you are in the wrong part of Mt central and eastern are definitely more red state there’s no love for Obama in lewistown for sure
Hey mountain Trekker It might do no good but I contacted my congress critters yesterday. I feel that way they have fair warning that we are watching. Don’t vote, don’t bitch.
citizen one thing about it, if and when the day comes that I have to take up arms, I will know that I tried to work within the system even if it fails. Atleast I will feel justified before God, and that is the most important thing to me. Trekker Out.
Just don’t buy legal guns problem solved then you can sell it to whoever you want folks if you are not a felon why would buying a gun on the street make you one all the sudden you still have not committed any crime. It may have been used in a crime but because you have it now doesn’t make you guilty all the sudden either. What part of keep and bear arms don’t the gov get. This goes for criminals too. If they are always gonna get guns shouldn’t a law abiding citizen too. Buying from FFLs is definetly so the gov can track legit gun folks. What other reason is it for. I don’t see why all the tracking is nessasary. I just don’t see why my rights are so threatening to the gov. It was sad to see the police bum rush the old lady with the cat in New Orleans over her having a revolver she was self reliant looking after herself. She was not gonna go thugging around with it. This was all to take your guns away and make us think the gov can protect us boy did the gov fall short they left this lady vulnerable to the street thugs with no gun and no cop to stay withe her. Scumbags.
ARE YOU PEOPLE READY TO ORGANIZE AND FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHTS YET?!?!? WHATS IT GOING TO TAKE, BRANDING YOUR KIDS OR ASKING WHEN YOU CAN HAVE SEX WITH YOUR SPOUSE, OR ASKING IF YOU MAY TAKE A SHIT!!!!
Lots of smokes and beer.
Buying from pawn shops is different than selling to them I’ve went to sell a bunn commercial coffee pot like the coffee shops use the guy wanted to give me $20 I left and gave it to my church they will use it and were grateful to get it. These pawn shops are predators that prey upon people falling on hard times needing a few bucks to pay a bill or whatever I don’t even buy from them. They do not deserve a dime. They are as common as liquor stores now too.
First offer’s always lowball. You gotta dicker around to finally get what you both think is a fair price. If it was any other way,it wouldn’t be nearly as much fun.
Have to eliminate barter – too hard to tax! But forcing people out of pawn shops will only make it harder to find the people who barter.
Indiana has become this way also. Just this past year, 2014, I walked into a coin shop and sold some silver. I have always done this before with no questions asked. Now to my surprise you are thumb printed,your Drivers License is photo’d, and all of this is put online.
I asked the store person why this was necessary and she replied, “because we are trying to find out if this is stolen PM.” I then asked her when the last time she heard of a news account of someone losing their PM’s in a burglary? She stood there like a deer in the headlights and said, “Well, we have to do this because we are told to.”
The whole point is when you sell silver or gold now, you are “DOCUMENTED” and the info is put online. They want to know who have PM’s, period. THAT is the reason for all of this big brother BS. If you sell, sell to another person, NOT a PM dealer.
…” realistically we are watching the incremental demise of every aspect of American life.”
When the alphabet agencies start going door to door, I am just hoping I am not first on the list.
trading in cash is not the answer but it helps.
You see the banks own the cash and can set its value in exchange for goods but they cannot quite do the same with my silver coins even if they can dictate the offical price.
Bob Marley had it right when he said “Get up, Stand up, Stand up for your rights” but he then goes and dies early !
Today Bob would be like a breath of fresh air but i see no replacment
Agenda 21 – ADA compliancy as a part of Agenda 21. Think in terms of streets and sidewalk placements. Pay attention to how close sidewalks have and are being placed to the front doors of homes – making it easier for SWAT and MIL to invade homes. And how sidewalks cut driveways in half, rendering them unusable as driveways, forcing vehicles to be parked in streets – easy to haul off when martial law declared, leaving people/families without transportation, stranded, easily picked up and hauled to FEMA camps.
It’s Nazi all over again. URGH!
The problem THEY have with millions of Americans is the simple fact, before social media and social networking, the main activists were easily targeted and the freedom/civil rights movement was easily located and infiltrated. Today, the movement is basically leaderless and reproduces at an astonishing rate everyday as more people get the message of truth. AND…that is the target, the “needle in the haystack” is NOT really there, but is everywhere. Now it’s going to require an army to be raised for this techno-resurrection as Lincoln did when he raised 75,000 volunteers to invade the south. WE ARE THERE AGAIN !!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1XM3eCxBOU GLEN Beck Says riots was fake, I believe him! It’s Nazi all over again.
Yea, they want control, they must be talking about another state because they won’t be and sure ain’t controlling sh…. in Texas. Food luck with that.
If what they do is not Constitutional NO ONE need to obey it or comply.
The trouble begins when you do? So why do you do it?
Compliance, subjection and slavery is the cost of doing business on the King’s Land. Get out of their system before they kill you with your own consent. Mass graves for all. Fear-mongering? Nah. Just harkening back to the millions of deaths by governments who already went down this road. I am not a fear-mongering conspiracy theorist. I am an historian. Period. Your fear comes from within you, so don’t blame me for it.
Sniffing undies has never been better for Uncle.
These types of laws and ordinances are typically focused on business owners of second hand stores or pawn shops. They are meant to make it easier for police to capture burglars who sell stolen items. I am against such laws in general.
There needs to be very stringent protection limiting abuse by impacting only transactions of licensed businesses, limiting value to something higher ($100 minimum), suspending the law if the local burglary rate is less than x%, suspending the law if there is not a local full-time police unit working burglary.
Here’s something I just run into, it’s not of the same nature as what your article is about but it’s parallel to it. Apparently they passed in the state of Oklahoma a law that everyone in that state will be inoculated with a “vaccine”. And it will be mandatory when NWO takes effect. Apparently it will not be possible to go anywhere unless the person shows papers that prove they have been inoculated, and for those that refuse, they put them on a bus to some Fort to be forcibly I don’t know, I didn’t get that part. Either way, it’s willing suicide or forced homicide, that’s what the speaker said will happen and he said they will put a metal bracelet on each of the inoculated with a computer chip that tells all about their personal info including the injection. This is absolutely nuts.
I just notice it’s a Radio Frequency ID type of bracelet, that way the person will be able to be tracked down wherever they go!!!!! He said the plan has yet to be implemented but it’s ready for use.
Montana has a state preemption law that prohibits local units of government from regulating the purchase or sale of any weapon, so the Kalispell ordinance – as it pertains to guns – is not lawful.
No pawn shop, gun store or gun show has to comply with the ordinance if they sell a used gun.
M.C.A. 45-8-351 reads,
“… a county, city, town, consolidated local government, or other local government unit may not prohibit, register, tax, license, or regulate the purchase, sale or other transfer (including delay in purchase, sale, or other transfer), ownership, possession, transportation, use, or unconcealed carrying of any weapon, including a rifle, shotgun, handgun, or concealed handgun.”
THE ORDINANCE IS UNLAWFUL!!!
