    I’m going to a cannabis dispensary in Hell Michigan to load up a hand basket then it will be driven to Helena Montana and left in the town square.

    So the 20 ton blast door at Cheyenne Mountain will stop the germs?
    There is a McMansion suburb on the other side of the mountain and if they get any ideas there is a guard tower and Humvees with .50 cal machine gun mounts.
    Cries of save me mommygov will be answered in roar of machine gun fire.

    On another thread/comment here it was stated a gun range was closed to members. Only open to badged thugs. Good place to practice with long guns and recovery efforts of saids pew pews.

    @tfA-t – you forgot to post a video clip including the “money shot”…

    Studies have shown significant reduction in viral loads and symptom improvement when combining these medications in COVID-19 patients. Though these studies do not prove efficacy, the results were so promising the authors of the most famous study concluded:

    “We therefore recommend that COVID-19 patients be treated with hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin to cure their infection and to limit the transmission of the virus to other people in order to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the world.”

    Elsewhere in Normalville…

    FDA prioritized adding hydroxychloroquine sulfate to category 1 in its Interim Policy on Compounding for outsourcing facilities. We do not intend to object to certain facilities using it to make drugs as long as other conditions of the FD&C Act are met.

    the comments are pretty good there

    • I know about Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s threats of “administrative action” against the licenses of doctors that prescribe hydroxychloroquine and am very much pissed off right now.

      I am still healthy but would like my doctor to be able to write a prescription for me (or my wife) and for me to be able to get the stuff in a hurry if I (or my wife) get sick. My Doctor said last week if I could find a pharmacy that had it in stock he would fax a prescription, but no such luck. Was hoping to be able to be able to put together a couple of 5 day treatment kits when the production line got up to speed and the stuff became available once again.

      (Dr. Vladimir Zelenko’s COVID-19 / coronavirus treatment plan:)
      200mg 2x daily HydroxyChloroquine
      500mg 1x daily Azithromycin (1 Z-Pak)
      220mg 1x daily Zinc sulfate

      It may work, it may not, (maybe it only works for Hasidic Jews like the Dr and his patients), it may even kill me or cause me serious problems, but I would like to be able to make that decision for myself should I get sick with this.

      Detroit News opinion article:

      Opinion: Michigan’s doctors fight coronavirus, and governor’s office

      “But if you live in Michigan, and you or a loved one is infected with this potentially lethal disease, you’re out of luck.
      Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs literally threatened all doctors and pharmacists in the state who prescribe or dispense hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19.
      The agency’s March 24 letter warns physicians and pharmacists of professional consequences for the prescribing of hydroxychloroquine (and chloroquine).”

      Unfortunately being elected in 2018 her term doesn’t expire until 2022.

      Can only hope something changes. Either hydroxychloroquine is proven to work and the Governors of Michigan (and Nevada) have to walk back what they said concerning hydroxychloroquine or President Trump / the White House Coronavirus Task Force over-rules them.

      Joint Statement Urging White House Coronavirus Task Force, the leadership of the U.S. Congress and Nation’s Governors to Ensure Hydroxychloroquine Access During COVID-19 Crisis

          Indeed it does. It multiplies with every “CrysUS”. Think of it as a magnifying glass. The govt constantly focuses their lense according to the response of the PEOPLE to a CrysUS. They listen to the clamoring of the feeble, the dindus, the thirld world refugees, white trash and the remaining shitters and spitters WE, yep WE the PEOPLE agreed to and allowed into this country. Through trial and error the govt has finaly found it, They move the “GLASS” to the long sought after “sweet spot” the best position for maximum effect. Each so called crisis represents the refocusing of the govt magnifiying glass. From decades ago to present time LOL the govt has always taken advantage of this fact. And now.. they found it. WE gave it to them. They have it! Like kids burning leaves, ants and Spiders the govt has now discovered the correct angle for the maximum burn. Finally, like ALL govt things…….this will not go away.

    Want to see how compliant a populace can be when told to stay inside because of… ViRuS?

    Look no further…


      Posting a link to the ridiculously retarded, fedgov operative, lying tub of shit that is ‘hal turner’ makes you as undesired as a mug of diarrhea, on a hot and dusty day.


      If what Mr. Turner is reporting is true, then it sounds like the Grim Reaper has singled out the correct Blue Hive to start his culling business. Now if only he could cull Cuomo and Di Blasio.
      I realize I am being insensitive and sarcastic. But, Blue Hives are Blue Hives. These creatures are a total disconnect to me. When the Gimme-My-Freebies crowd of unhygienic low-lifes decides to line up en masse for their daily bread and circuses, what do they expect? Never forget they put the Hildabeest in the U.S. Senate.
      And, since these same-same red-diaper-doper babies routinely go to the polls and vote to confiscate more of my honest-earned wealth, I say: Anathema sit. COVID-19 is saying “Vae Victis.”.

    French Official Says Quarantine Should Not be Enforced in Migrant Areas to Avoid Riots

    So, let’s see… CoronaChan has done in a few short weeks what the French government hasn’t been able to do for more than the past two years: Stop the Yellow Vest protests.

    Yellow vests in France: Stay at home or risk jail.
    “Migrants” in France: Go about your business.

    How convenient.

    BTW, same thing with the Hong Kong protests.

    • Difficult to machinegun the goliwogs, as arms in France are severely restricted. Locals should consider joining together to raid the nearest mosques – bound to be an ammo cache in a couple of ’em.
      Other than that, on a different note, how good is the FAMAS, really…?

      • It’s actually pretty decent rifle, the mas 49/56 in 7.5 which would be in reserves is top notch.

        • Did hear that when paired with the “5.56 French Service” ammo, it shoots like a dream.
          Why do people shit on bullpups, anyway.

      Just as I thought, the (((parasites))) aren’t going to try
      to fuck with those in already established ‘No-Go Zones’
      such as Dearbornistan, Lil Mogahndishu, and other
      moslem majority areas.

      See, ‘No-Go Zones’ DO work..if one has the effective
      numbers of people to support them.

      So why haven’t white people followed this successful
      model and created their own cultural ‘No-Go Zones’?

      • Bonaventure

        So why haven’t white people followed this successful
        model and created their own cultural ‘No-Go Zones’?

        They have. Sort of. It’s called rural America. Generally speaking, of course.

        • NorthGunner

          Randy Weaver and his family and friends and Robert Koresh
          and his family and friends TRIED that ‘rural’ approach; what
          they both lacked was what the moslems HAVE going for them…
          which is numbers, large numbers…and they know it!

          IF Randy and his family and friends and the Branch Davidians
          HAD 20,000 other culturally homogenous like minded individuals
          that were well armed and SERIOUS about defending their ‘No-Go
          Zone’ from any and all potential attackers, the (((gov))) would have
          NEVER fucked with either of them in any way shape or form.
          That 20,000 would have had to be part of Randy’s immediate
          community..same for the Branch Davidians.

          The truth of the above is clearly seen with how the Bundy’s and
          other ranchers prevailed against the blm and fibbers…(((gov)))
          got there…got set up…took a good look at ALL the armed folks
          (snipers included) that were there to back the ranchers if the
          (((parasites))) decided to go spicy…took another good look and
          decided that it wasn’t looking good for their immediate physical
          future to further press their luck and fuck with a bunch of cowboys.

          That’s how it’s done boys and girls!!

          So, no, simply being in a rural area won’t cut it, not as long as
          it’s just ‘single families’…too easy to pick off unless the whole
          town decides to ‘gird their loins’ and saddle up and lock and load.

          And seeing that it’s “Saturday Night Movie Night” again,

    • Small Pox blankets, anyone?

    • “A top government official in France has admitted that draconian lockdown measures being imposed on the rest of the population shouldn’t be implemented in the country’s migrant-heavy ghettos in order to prevent riots.”

      Not to minimize the righteous anger that deserves to be directed towards a government leadership that enforces laws against its own citizens and lets criminal invaders roam free…

      Assuming the coronavirus / Wuhan flu / COVID-19 virus spreads via person to person contact, that it afflicts the young and strong as well as the old, and that it the infection rates are still increasing exponentially…

      Maybe that’s not a bad thing…

    “Dirk | March 27, 2020 at 12:21 |
    So my confusion is this, EXACTLY how has this bug changed your life, your day to day incidentals?

    I’m trying to better understand the individual impact, the impact on ones family?

    Admittedly, I’m out of touch. I’m retired, my funding sources arrive on time in my account twice a month, like a Swiss clock. I live in a town, on a mountain, with a community of rational, well thinking people. Sure their are hotheads, I don’t see them, or hear about them.

    We’re stocked, have been for the better part of 20/ 30 years. I’ve received more calls from old friends asking, what to do, in the past three weeks, then the rest of my life. Frankly it’s hard to not laugh. Fucking retards.

    I recognize, that my prepper life style, makes my place a prime target, hence the raw horsepower stragically place around the house. “Be Prepared”, the only other precaution taken, is door locked. Vehicles moved to deny cover. Spare ammo placed, shotgun is preferred, moving right up the continuum to .308 semi auto rifles, FNs and AR-10s. Lots and lots of spare mags loaded.

    Most of this IS NOT un normal for us. It’s just how we live, roll. Not an I inconvenience.

    Our world has changed, some say really fast, I don’t agree. This is simply history revisited. The only real change regarding time tables I’ve made is, I changed out my car rifle, from AK-47 with ten mags, to a chopped FNFAL, with ten 30 rounders. Not that the AK won’t fuck some shit up, I just see the utility of the .308 shortened up, as a ass kicking one shot kill improvement. ” personal choice”.

    What is it your all doing, differently? How has this changed your family’s and your life!, lomg term, or short term. Show your home work if you don’t mind.



    Answer: Zip, Zilch, Nada. I haven’t (and won’t) change how I
    live and operate day to day from a clear nothingburger (((virus hoax)))
    any more than I did during the go around in 2008 with the mexican
    swine flu (incidentally that one actually killed more folks than this one).

    Only things that have changed that were out of my say-so is that where
    I and fellow co-workers work were given our ‘Travel Paper’ and plastic “I’m
    an ‘Emergency Responder’ connected to critical infrastructure – I WILL pass so don’t fuck with me you dumbass orc” card.

    Other than that bit of clownworldism…people in my AO are STILL
    overbuying TP, handsanitizers, anti-bac soap and canned meats/veggies;
    in other words being dumb panicky animals. Since I live frugally it’s not
    an issue; plus was raised in a ranching/farming life so I know the ‘Old
    School’ work-arounds, including how and why to raise a vegetable garden, etc.

    Add to that that a majority of normies here are following the parasite’s
    ‘self-distancing’ horseshit decrees without a moment given to questioning
    it and the related talmud-o-vision crapaganda and ‘notifications’ (mainstream
    radio included). The only thing they’re not doing (yet) is wearing little silver
    bells around their necks and remembering to go, “Baaaaaaaaa” every time
    they complete a sentence.

    Waiting on an order of Lake City .308 to come in for me and a friend here;
    also just received a shipment via bezos-biz of some books and dvd’s.
    He’ll be happy as a book and video out of that order are his (he doesn’t
    have any internet access so he paid me to get them for him so he can
    share them with folks here to try to wake them up to some reality).

    Here’s what he’s getting (if you haven’t had a chance to see it, it’s
    available for viewing on YouTube for free – check it out):

    911: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out (Free 1-hour Version)

    He, like I do speak to those here who are open to hearing and learning
    the truth. And one of the first things we mention is that one cannot trust
    anything that (((gov))) and it’s related tentacles (((Media))) tell them.

    Other than that, life is for living, and not in fear based submission to
    a pack of lying murderous parasites, whether they’re local, or not.

    Plaquenil (which is hydroxychloroquine) isn’t working on them either.

    And now, fucktards ignoring shelter-in-place voluntary quarantines, have triggered R.I. gov. to literally call out the Notional Guard, and they’ll be used to go house-to-house to root out fleeing NYFC residents bringing Kung Flu to the tri-state area. Massholia and CT will be getting into this as well.

    Read the comments of the R.I. gov. if you think this is just fucking around, and everything’s really fine.

    And the White House is calling for NFY to be quarantined for 14 days.
    I say again:
    The WHITE HOUSE is calling for New York to be quarantined. From everybody else. For two weeks.

    Slowly rolling out the Revolution via lockdown and takedown, slowly. So you don’t move, don’t change location, don’t gather, don’t question, live in fear, slowly, just one more week of lockdown, perhaps by the end of April, sit tight, don’t actually DO anything, we should be good by summer, maybe September for sure, well perhaps 18 months. The Republican minions will do what Trump says, all hail, and dems love them some State. This is a great window. I would take it if I were them.Nobody will fight back. Solzhenitsyn anybody?

    This. Is. Not. A. Drill.

    The source and particulars of the virus no longer matter. Your enemy is the State. I don’t think that this is a trial run. I think that this is it. The cure will be worse than the disease ever could be. In a depression, you don’t get proper nutrition. Millions will die of the downstream effects from malnourishment which is rampant disease. Vitamins and minerals matter, not just calories.

    For people like me the decision has already been made. I can’t take any chip or “vaccine”, I’m already marked. There is no conflict here. I simply can’t comply. So forced to draw, I die in a hail of bullets. So be it.

    Welcome to the New Global World Order.

    Problems here with most Americans are several.
    Besides cognitive dissonance and normalcy bias, people in this country have been brainwashed and mollycoddled into complacency and near apathy. We in this country have been spoiled. Many have never known hardship – real hardship, let alone starvation and disease.
    Over the years I have said to people that the first thing Americans should do when they wake up in the morning is to get on their knees and thank whatever God they worship for being here.
    Every American should literally be dumped for at least three months in a third-world shit hole and if they can survive there, they are welcome back and share their experience with others.
    Funny thing is I’ve been to third world shitholes many times for extended periods. I learned a great deal and listened to many of the people there, but I always knew I’d be coming back home.
    We created the greatest country on the face of the earth – at great cost – and it seems very few are concerned or even care that just about everything has gone to shit. (I got mine, don’t worry about his)
    I am amazed at the gullibility of many here – mind you nearly everyone in foreign countries know this. Many in foreign countries – are seething with jealousy and hatred because we take so much for granted and are selfish and arrogant.
    How many times have I experienced an American’s attitude of “I’m better than you are – ’cause ‘merica !
    Having screwed many of those countries for over a hundred years (read Smedley Butlers book). I am not surprised at even the hidden hint of dislike towards America and its people.
    The American dream has become the American nightmare and most refuse to wake up. That is how brainwashed most are in this country.
    This is the wake up call – if most heed it. But again – normalcy bias.
    So many think this will be over soon. Happy-quacky sounds about a “cure” “antidote” “vaccine” etc, etc, ad nauseum and we can go back to normal.
    If we ever get back to “normal” most will have forgotten what is happening today. Hopefully we will not have corpses bloating in the noon-day sun.
    Unfortunately, along with the idiots and bottom-dwelling scum suckers, we lose many good people as well.
    Logistics: How many idiots, morons and mouth-breathers are there to each up-standing patriot ? Hope you have enough ammo, or that the virus wipes out most of the chaff – we should be so lucky. You versus 10? 100? How many can you take out before the mass overwhelms you ?
    So I may be called a heartless, cold SOB not concerned with how many people have died or will be in such a state soon.
    I will defend myself and mine at least and proceed accordingly.
    I lost faith in most people a very long time ago and depend on no one but myself and God.

      Well said, you’ve pissed off more than a few normies already. I’ve also stated what you did many times here, only to be told I’m talking out my ass because they can’t stop crowing about their uber patriotism, many here never having served or been overseas either, They just can’t see it thru their rose colored glasses.
      I too don’t like how Americans treat foreigners overseas, with arrogance and hostility, because they’re to dumb to be cool like us.
