Turns out that my “Example” post of yesterday was based on “false news”, i.e. a crock of shit.  Mea culpa — whenever there are no names or specific addresses given in an article, it should be a dead giveaway but I missed or ignored that.

The problem with this stuff is that after Ruby Ridge, Waco and gawd knows how many other instances of no-knock invasions of people’s homes by the various law enforcement entities (SWAT, FBI, DEA, DHS and all the other alphabet agencies), shit like the above can get traction and fool the gullible — in this case, people like me — and our natural suspicion / hatred of rogue government activities makes us patsies.

I promise to be more circumspect in future.


  1. I read that a couple of days ago and thought, that could have happened and I am glad I don’t have a crazy ex-girl friend to get the law all upset because I might have guns of something, just an old crazy ex-wife I haven’t seen since 2008, so there’s that.

  2. The only problem with that story is that it is completely believable with the way the Federales behave and the scream for red flag laws.


  3. I’d seen that story elsewhere and shared it everywhere. I’ll have to go back everywhere and recant.

    It does raise a question about strategy in control of the news and the narrative. “The boy who cried wolf” will not be believed when it actually does happen.

  4. Codrea now seems to be saying … something happened, we just don’t know what yet, because no one is talking. I have resisted calling up my friends in Kalispell to ask what they might know, mostly because that may be exactly the desired effect … build the network maps … on the part of the feds. Paranoia, it’s not just for crazy people anymore.

  5. Consider, Kim, that you have the integrity to not just leave it there or – worse – quietly delete it.

  6. Stuff I would have rejected out of hand a few years ago now gets at least consideration.

  7. I bought the story well !
    20 years ago most of us would have rejected out of hand due to the story’s sheer absurdity. Isn’t it interesting that now we don’t find it absurd or outside the boundaries of ‘possible or likely’.
    I find THAT aspect, acceptance of the validity of the story, almost as frightening as the story itself ! Are we THAT jaded today ?
    As an aside, never forget that you are NOT paranoid if they are, in fact, out to get you !
