“I think it was the distinguishing trait of Wyatt Earp, the leader of the Earp brothers, that more than any man I have ever known, he was devoid of physical fear. He feared the opinion of no one but himself and his self-respect was his creed.”— W. B. “Bat” Masterson
“I wish I could find words to express the trueness, the bravery, the hardihood, the sense of honor, the loyalty to their trust and to each other of the old trail hands.”— Charles Goodnight
“My father had seen in a flash that they were all gunmen, so he told me to stand still, although we were right in a possible line of fire. If near a gun-fight and the weapons are wielded by amateurs, run for your life; if professionals are handling the trigger, stand still — they know where they are shooting.”― William S. Hart
“The past is sufficient to show that bushwhackers have been arrested… charged with bank robbery, and they most all have been mobbed without trials… I have lived as a respectable citizen and obeyed the laws of the United States to the best of my knowledge.” — Jesse James in a letter to a frontier editor
“Wild Bill was a strange character, add to this figure a costume blending the immaculate neatness of the dandy with the extravagant taste and style of a frontiersman, you have Wild Bill, the most famous scout on the Plains.” – General George Custer
“I am aware that my name has been connected with all the bank robberies in the country; but positively I had nothing to do with any one of them. I look upon my life since the war as a blank, and will never say anything to make it appear otherwise.”– Cole Younger
Bombardier Recreational Products says handlebar stem bolts may break suddenly
Bombardier Recreational Products is warning owners of certain 2022 Can-Am Ryker motorcycles not to drive them. Bombardier is recalling more than 9,300 vehicles with a handlebar stem bolt that may break suddenly, which could lead to a loss of steering control and increase the risk of a crash.
Bombardier indicated that it had two reports of stem bolts that broke while the cycles were being ridden. There was one injury, a sprained ankle. Another 56 bolts broke while dealers were preparing the motorcycles for delivery.
Bombardier Recreational Products highly recommends that owners stop riding their vehicle until the recall repair is performed.
Owners are encouraged to immediately contact their authorized BRP Can-Am On-Road dealer to schedule an appointment to have the FREE safety recall performed on their vehicle.
The dealer will clean the threads of the steering column and install the new handlebar stem bolt.
The repair will take less than one hour to complete.
Vehicle owners can visit NHTSA.gov/recallsand enter their vehicle identification number to see if their vehicle is under recall. NHTSA encourages everyone to download its SaferCar app to stay informed about current recalls.
Suspect is accused of killing a man in front of barbershop
Omar Alexander Cardenas, wanted for his alleged involvement in the murder of a man and unlawful flight to avoid prosecution, has been added to the Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list.
🔹The FBI is offering a reward of up to $100,000 for information leading directly to his arrest.
🔹On August 15, 2019, Cardenas allegedly fired several rounds from a semi-automatic handgun in the direction of a barbershop, striking an adult male standing outside in the head, causing his death.
🔹The incident took place at Hair Icon Barber Shop, which is located in a small shopping center in the Sylmar neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. Law enforcement officials believe the victim may not have known Cardenas.
“At the scene of the crime, Mr. Cardenas is believed to have fired approximately six shots into a public space,” said Special Agent Michael Alker who is investigating the case for the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office. “He is not only a risk to the public, but he may also have information related to other violent crimes.”
In 2006, Jack Dennis had the honor of interviewing the second man to walk on the Moon, Buzz Aldrin.
It’s been over half of a century that earth celebrated one of the most historical milestones in history as United States astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin explored the moon for 21 hours. Many Baby Boomers and space enthusiasts today recall Armstrong’s first words as his boots touched the lunar surface: “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”
Dr. Aldrin, (now 92 at this writing), was bestowed the nickname “Buzz” from his baby sister who could only say “Buzzer” instead of “brother” in their New Jersey home.
Little did they know this would evolve into the recognizable inspiration for Toy Story’s Buzz Lightyear’s name decades later.
Edwin Eugene Aldrin Jr. stepped on the moon at 03:15:16 Coordinated Universal Time on July 21, 1969. “Beautiful view,” Aldrin simply uttered the first words to describe what he was experiencing. “Magnificent desolation.”
New information previously not generally known by the public released by Aldrin recently, combined with the 2006 interview by Dennis, is revealed below:
When probed about Armstrong and him sighting a UFO on their voyage to the moon, Aldrin beamed. “Yes, we saw something,” he clarified. “But you have to remember the times. We could not blare it out that we saw any UFO because everyone was listening and hanging on to every word we said.”
“Delicately, we asked Houston the location of the SIVB (booster rocket) and they told us something like it was 6,000 miles away,” Aldrin continued. “I remember we talked about it as being L-shaped.”
“Over the years, there have been many suppositions and misrepresentations, but we believe now it was a panel left over from the separation of the spacecraft,” winked Aldrin playfully.
The two were on the lunar surface for 21 hours and returned to earth with 46 pounds of moon rocks and specimens.
Did Aldrin feel any pressure to say or not say anything publicly while he was on the moon?
“Not censorship, if that is what you are implying,” he answered. “We knew what we were doing was unparalleled and extraordinary in human history so we took our choice of words into account as part of our responsibility.”
“Just a few minutes on the moon, I did make a statement of reflection asking everyone to give thanks for the moment,” Aldrin said. “And then, with the radio off, I read from the Scripture. Only Neil (Armstrong) heard me.”
Aldrin took a communion wafer and vial of wine from his minister to the surface of the moon.
“I poured the wine into the chalice our church had given me,” wrote Aldrin years after the mission. “In the one-sixth gravity of the moon, the wine slowly curled and gracefully came up the side of the cup.”
“Then I read the Scripture, ‘I am the vine, you are the branches. Whosoever abides in me will bring forth much fruit.. Apart from me you can do nothing,’” he wrote.
Aldrin continued, “It was interesting for me to think: the very first liquid ever poured on the moon, and the very first food eaten there, were the communion elements.”
It is also interesting to note that Aldrin was the first astronaut to earn a doctorate degree. His thesis was the foundation and idea for the docking procedures used in the Gemini and Apollo missions. He was the first astronaut to accomplish a successful spacewalk, while during the Gemini 12 mission of 1966, he was outside the capsule for 5 1/2 hours.
What are Aldrin’s ideas about climate change?
“I think the climate has been changing for billions of years. If it’s warming now, it may cool off later. I’m not in favor of just taking short-term isolated situations and depleting our resources to keep our climate just the way it is today. I’m not necessarily of the school that we are causing it all, I think the world is causing it.”
Moon germ worries.
Amid concerns over what germs the astronauts might have brought back with them from the moon, they were kept in quarantine for three weeks after their return to Earth before they could be reunited with their families. The quarantine experience “quickly became oppressive” according to a NASA history of the mission.
The astronauts had to wear “biological isolation garments” before they went into quarantine, where they had to keep themselves entertained with an exercise room, a ping pong table, television, reading material and phone calls to their families. The suits were to ensure that “the lunar dust we brought back wouldn’t give people on earth our moon germs,” Aldrin said.
“I always found it funny that the rags used to wipe us down that were covered with moon dust were dropped in the ocean,” he tweeted. “So the poor underwater creatures got our moon germs instead.”
Aldrin then suggested that the moon dust in the ocean could be “fodder for a Godzilla movie.”
Texas Attorney General Paxton filed a brief in the United States Supreme Court opposing the Department of Justice’s request to stay a district court order vacating the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) September 2021 Immigration Prioritization Memorandum.
🔹Federal law requires DHS to detain certain aliens who have committed crimes and aliens with final orders of removal, but DHS’s Memorandum ignores those requirements.
In an earlier win for the State of Texas, the district court vacated DHS’s Memorandum, concluding that it violated the Administrative Procedure Act because it was contrary to law.
🔹They also ruled it was arbitrary and capricious, and procedurally invalid.
🔹Despite the Biden Administration’s efforts, the New Orleans-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit declined to stay that ruling. The Supreme Court should also deny the request of a stay pending appeal according to Paxton.
“President Biden implemented unlawful immigration priorities, allowing illegal aliens convicted of dangerous felonies to be released back into our country despite Congress’s clear instructions,” Attorney General Paxton said. “I have urged the Supreme Court to put a stop to this in order to protect Texas’s communities.”
Much of it begins on TV or in the school room. Educational systems (think Common Core, Critical Race Theory, Sex Education for first graders) employ memorization techniques (performance-based education), because:
🔹it stupifies-confuses the conscious mind
🔹prevents cohesive understanding from occurring
🔹forces the mind into a trance state due to mild trauma—because not understanding something is confusing.
🔹makes students or viewers feel numb, inadequate and disempowered (dissociation)
🔹it supports a form of socially promulgated and self-enforced mind control
Those of us who stay away from television and Big Media, realize their propaganda, programing and predictable substance serves the purpose of mind control.
All major mainstream media news outlet are monopolized under only a small handful of corporations. They earn millions by misleading on important issues and building consent for government and the oligarchs.
Most people are so addicted to the media that control them, they are incapable of recognizing the most wicked primary weapon of social control against them.
Think back to just the past five years. What was reported to control your thoughts and life? Pandemic, vaccinations, lockdowns, business closings, Russian Collusion, you are racist, prayer is nonsense, illegal immigration is good, kindergarten age children should be taught sex education, patriotism is evil, riots and destruction is good, Jan. 6 was an “insurrection” and so on….
Are you turning the tide, breaking the spells, and understanding the evil? If not, why?
Here is a quick list of tactics being used against your family, friends, neighbors and you right now. Learn to recognize them. Better yet, break away from the addiction, ridicule and manipulation now!
1. Ask what are they not reporting? If they are omitting illegal immigration, crime increases, Hunter Biden’s laptop, Jeffrey Epstein’s list of visitors, or inflation, you can bet it’s on purpose.
2. Who is controlling the debate? See question 6.
3. What are the buzz phrases (“without evidence,” “The Big Lie,” “Russia is to blame”.. ) and synchronized scripts being repeated across all channels?
4. What and who are they trying to divide and conquer? Blacks against Whites? Left against Right? Women against Men? Right against Wrong? Watch carefully and you will recognize it.
Deprogram yourself to not automatically follow their directions. In many cases, humans help and have compassion for each other. The last disaster or car wreck you saw—did people rush to help and provide aid, or did they stoke the fire? They want you to stoke! No thanks, I will help.
5. Notice Joe Biden. Is he a leader or just a bad teleprompter reader? He is no more a real president as these news-actors are fake journalists. Scripts of propaganda are there for them to read and control your thoughts, actions and beliefs.
6. Are reporters and pundits even asking the right questions? Most likely they ask what is scripted for them. Remember the Presidential Debates of 2016 and 2020, when Hillary and Joe were given questions ahead of time against Trump?
🔹Healing of both physical and spiritual sickness is an important part of Christ’s ministry. It’s in the Bible.
Matthew 4:23, TLB.
“Jesus traveled all through Galilee teaching in the Jewish synagogues, everywhere preaching the Good News about the Kingdom of Heaven. And He healed every kind of sickness and disease.”
🔹Physical healing is not the most important gift God can give. It’s in the Bible.
Matthew 9:2, TLB.
“Soon some men brought Him a paralyzed boy on a mat. When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the sick boy, ‘Cheer up, son! For I have forgiven your sins!”
🔹Physical healing takes place because God wants to heal us spiritually. It’s in the Bible.
Matthew 9:6, NIV.
” ‘But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins’…Then He said to the paralytic, ‘Get up, take your mat and go home.'”
🔹Spiritual healing is provided by Christ’s death for our sins. It’s in the Bible.
Isaiah 53:4-5, TLB.
“Yet it was our grief He bore, our sorrows that weighed Him down. And we thought His troubles were a punishment from God, for His own sins! But He was wounded and bruised for our sins. He was chastised that we might have peace; He was lashed—and we are healed.”
🔹Healing miracles validated the ministry of the early church. It’s in the Bible.
Acts 5:16, TLB.
“And crowds came in from the Jerusalem suburbs, bringing their sick folk and those possessed by demons; and every one of them was healed.”
🔹While miracles are a sign of God’s ministry, one needs to be alert, for Satan can perform miracles too. It’s in the Bible.
Revelation 16:14, NIV.
“They are spirits of demons performing miraculous signs and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle of the great day of God Almighty.”
🔹The miraculous never cancels the need for personal faith. It’s in the Bible.
John 20:29-31, TLB.
“Then Jesus told him, ‘You believe because you have seen Me. But blessed are those who haven’t seen Me and believe anyway.’ Jesus’ disciples saw Him do many other miracles besides the ones told about in this book, but these are recorded so that you will believe that He is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that believing in Him you will have life.”
🔹Obeying God’s instructions brings healing. It’s in the Bible.
Exodus 15:26, TLB.
“If you will listen to the voice of the Lord your God, and obey it, and do what is right, then I will not make you suffer the diseases I send on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord who heals you.”
🔹God can provide healing for terminal illnesses. It’s in the Bible.
Psalm 107:20, TLB.
“He spoke, and they were healed—snatched from the door of death.”
🔹The prayer of faith, symbolized by anointing with oil, brings healing. It’s in the Bible.
James 5:14-15, TLB.
“Is anyone sick? He should call for the elders of the church and they should pray over him and pour a little oil upon him, calling on the Lord to heal him. And their prayer, if offered in faith, will heal him, for the Lord will make him well; and if his sickness was caused by some sin, the Lord will forgive him.”
