Episode-1583- Galen Chadwick on the Farm Resettlement Congress

Galen Chadwick of the FRC.

Galen Chadwick of the FRC.

Galen Chadwick is a dedicated and tireless food freedom activist, making his home where he finds it amongst the communities he serves, generally in Missouri and northern Arkansas. He likes to refer to himself as a redneck swami, being an ordained Hindu swami of the Paramahansa order and a proponent of Advaita non-dual consciousness.

Galen has started communes and ashrams in the US and abroad, and is a student of trans-personal psychology. He is one of a handful of people in the world who practice sensory deprivation in total darkness for several weeks at a time.

Galen holds an agricultural patent for a liquid drilling technique using hydrophylic gel, which radically telescopes the time and moisture requirements for all broad-acre crops. He is a ginseng hunter, a gemstone prospector, and co-owner of an amethyst mine in Mexico.

His project known as, Farm Resettlement Congress, is a 20 Year Plan to restore food security, energy security and economic security to “WE THE PEOPLE” in any given region. This plan revives independently-owned local food chains, returns 1 million jobs, and preserves individual liberty. It involves creating land trusts, building soil, resettling youth and displaced veterans on the land, and putting land management back into the hands of The People.

Significant land contributions are already promised, and waiting for the organization to receive 501c3 status. That is in the works. The first Congress has recently convened in Kansas City, which will be further developed and refined to serve as the prototype model for an ambitious tour for creating local Congresses across the country.

Episode-1582- Why Blind Patriotism is a Greater Danger than State Oppression

This is Not Patriotism!

This is Not Patriotism!

I could simply say as to today’s topic that blind patriotism is a greater danger to liberty than state oppression because the former enables the latter but that would be an over simplification.  This is actually a highly complex and I believe a very important subject.

I have been struggling with how to explain what I have to say today for a long time.  Yesterday I made two posts on facebook that stirred up some shit storms, the first was this in response to the outrage at a shirt with an upside down flag on it.

The second post was my overall feelings about the flag itself, where I express disgust at those who damage our flag but I also acknowledge their right to do so if said flag is their property.

The most concerning thing to me that people said in response to these posts was, “if you don’t like America the way it is, leave”.

Really?  So should all of our forefathers that didn’t like slavery of left?  Should all of our great grandparents that found it wrong that women could not vote have left?  Should all of the people who found the 18th Amendment to be insane just have left America?  Should the people who worked to pass the Civil Rights Act have just instead left America because they didn’t like the way it was?

I am sorry folks, America doesn’t work that way.  Love it or leave it is not patriotic, it is the opposite of patriotism, it is simply saying accept the will of the State or shut up or leave.  It is also extremely dangerous thinking, today we examine why.

Episode-1581- Jim Steele on Challenging the Global Warming Myth

Jim Steel Former California State Biologist Raises Serious Counter Points to Modern AGW Theory

Jim Steele Former California State Biologist Raises Serious Counter Points to Modern AGW Theory

Jim Steel is a former environmental educator and scientist who began his career in 1983.  In 1983 San Francisco State University’s biology department wanted to close the Sierra Nevada Field Campus and use the savings to support more molecular and genetic research. In contrast the Dean of the College of Science and Engineering, Dr. James Kelley, was an avid supporter of field stations.

Dr Kelley understood that students must immerse themselves in the environment they are studying. Otherwise they would be forever misled by limited observations and the resulting bad models.

Although Jim Steele was just completing his Masters Degree, Dean Kelley believed Jim Steele was the best person to resurrect and grow the Sierra Nevada Field Campus. Together they turned the rustic Sierra Nevada Field Campus into one of California’s leading environmental education centers.

His understanding of climate change evolved as he sought to understand the causes of the declines in local bird populations that he had studied each summer as part of the Sierra Nevada Neotropical Migratory Bird Riparian Habitat Monitoring project. He soon discovered maximum temperatures in the Sierra Nevada had declined since the 30s as observed at the nearby Tahoe City weather station that is part of the US Historical Climate Network.

It became clear that the Sierra Nevada were not overheating despite publications blaming wildlife extinctions on global warming. The most important factors affecting local climate change were the cycles of El Nino and the Pacific Decadal Oscillation as well as landscape changes that had greatly altered the regional microclimates.

Believing the politics of global warming have been misguiding conservation efforts, Jim Steele wrote the book Landscapes & Cycles: An Environmentalist’s Journey to Climate Skepticism. And the lessons learned from his students helped shape his writing style, making the book’s science lessons most enjoyable and easily grasped by all.

Episode-1579- Michael Bolden on 2015 10th Amendment Issues

Michael Bolden of the Tenth Amendment Center

Michael Bolden of the Tenth Amendment Center

Michael Boldin is the founder and executive director of the Tenth Amendment Center. Michael has a full schedule working as senior editor of the Center’s website, writes a regular column, fields media interviews, and travels the country (when invited, of course) to speak to crowds about sticking to the Constitution – every issue, every time, no exceptions, no excuses.

Right now here are states rights and nullification bills being introduced on all kinds of issues – from blocking gun control and obamacare, to NSA, drones, and stopping FDA restrictions. Michael joins us today to give us an overview of where things are around the first week or two of February.

We will go through many of these concepts issue by issue – and talk about the states that have pending legislation on each issue – and then talk about what people can do to encourage state sovereignty. Our goal will be to provide some concrete action steps to help things move forward on issues that you find worth supporting.

Episode-1578- Could Open Source Scouting Save Our Youth

Yesterday I heard that the Boy Scouts of America has now banned scouts from shooting each other with water guns and says if you play with a water balloon that it is to be inflated no larger than a ping pong ball.  First I thought this was from the onion but now I see that it is factual and being reported by many people.  Here is one example.

Many are shocked, I am not.  Long ago I noticed that scouting was in a downward trend due to bureaucracy.  That is indeed the problem by the way, might I remind you of “the iron law of bureaucracy“?  It was written by modern thinker Jerry Pournell…

Pournelle’s Iron Law of Bureaucracy states that in any bureaucratic organization there will be two kinds of people”:

 First, there will be those who are devoted to the goals of the organization. Examples are dedicated classroom teachers in an educational bureaucracy, many of the engineers and launch technicians and scientists at NASA, even some agricultural scientists and advisers in the former Soviet Union collective farming administration.

Secondly, there will be those dedicated to the organization itself. Examples are many of the administrators in the education system, many professors of education, many teachers union officials, much of the NASA headquarters staff, etc.

The Iron Law states that in every case the second group will gain and keep control of the organization. It will write the rules, and control promotions within the organization.

This is truly what has drug down the Boy Scouts and most other scouting organizations, I also tell you truly there is no recourse, the down slide will continue.

Join Me Today to Discuss…

  • What was great about scouting and where it went wrong
  • Understanding the IRON part of the iron law
  • The only way to prevent bureaucracy from taking over is elimination of it
  • What are the real goals of scouting
    • Instill a sense of honor, duty and service
    • Promote doing your very best in anything you do
    • Develop real skills that translate into real life
    • Understand the power of teams, learn to both lead and follow
    • Develop real self esteem by accepting and completing challenges
    • Promote phyical, mental and spiritual fitness
  • None of this requires a bureaucracy
  • The OSSM (open source scouting model)
    • The only unification is 6 common goals
    • Individuals and groups determine how best to acomplish them
    • All information can be shared or not
    • The responsibility to vet leaders is 100% that of those involved
    • The group is a virtual nation made of virtual tribes
  • The OSSM Advantages
    • Immune to the iron law
    • Develops healthy competition
    • Creates independent innovation
    • Develops 100% voluntary groups
    • Requires individuals to truly evaluate their own success/failure
    • Allows freedom for all involved
  • How it would work
    • A social media style website
    • People share what works for them, what doesn’t
    • Groups form based on voluntary association
    • The only moderation is to prevent improper content (porn, illegal, etc)
    • The uniform would simply be something like a patch, or may be a challenge coin
    • Consider it Scouting Jeet Kune Do
  • Why it could work, why it likely won’t happen, yet anyway

Episode-1577- Gun and Hunting Wisdom of our Fathers

Thirty Years, Three Thousand Miles, Three Hundred Thousand Rounds, Still Knocks a Dime out at 30 Yards.

75 Bucks when it was Brand New – 30 Years, 3,000 Miles, 300,000 Rounds, Still Knocks a Dime out at 30 Yards, What Else Could You Ask For?

I want to talk about guns today, but a bit differently then you might expect from a “survival podcast” to do.  No ARs, no concealed carry and no ninja like accessories.

No today I want to tell you about the gun wisdom I learned at the hands of my grandfather and father as a young man.  The stories, lessons and realities that made me love guns as the tools they truly are.

You may be shocked to learn I didn’t grow up hearing much about the 2nd amendment or gun rights.  Where I grew up boys hunted squirrels with pellet guns for the table until they hit 12, at that time they could get a hunting license and were handed a 22 or a old single shot Sears brand 20 gauge and told to bring back more now that they had a better gun.

The concept that anyone would ever seek to take a gun away from a man who had never harmed a person with it, was so foreign as to not even be discussed.  While there is a lesson in that alone, we shall save it for another day.  Today I want to take you back to the 1980s in a small town with only two main roads, called RD1 and you guessed it RD2.  The two is Joenstown, the boy is still called John, the squirrels are fat, the deer are plentiful and the year is 1986.

Join Me Today to Discuss…

  • My first lessons were in how to clean a gun
  • Guns sat in a cabinet, it wasn’t locked, nothing bad ever happened
  • If your rifle has killed a deer every year for a long time, you don’t want a new one
  • The 35 Remington is something special, almost no one knows that
  • Your dad’s 30-06 is an “elephant gun” but it is good for deer too
  • Don’t close one eye, you have two eyes for a reason boy
  • You have natural talent, it will be great when you develop skill to go with it
  • If someone hands you the exact same model of gun but it isn’t yours, you should know it
  • You can’t eat the horns, but it is certainly okay to have some pride in them
  • Hearts are great fried in butter and onions but no one here eats brains
  • Any man or boy for that matter can kill a deer, the skill is in butchering
  • Your shot gun and 22 will often feed your more than your rifle
  • A handgun is mostly for when a rifle isn’t practical
  • Always trust the dog, he is never wrong, even when you are sure of it
  • Never shoot anything in front of your dog that you don’t want him to hunt
  • Pack a lunch and let the yokels do the work
  • If you drop one duck of a pair, be patient and wait for the second to set its wings
  • Trust yourself, the gun will respond correctly if you do
  • See the target not the sites
  • Keep your head down on that shotgun and keep the gun moving
  • If you wound it, you find it, if you fail to find it, you learn from it
  • Bullets are cheap, if it doesn’t go down, shoot it again
  • Every trip into the woods is a scouting trip and a time to learn
  • The true value of a gun is in the hands of the man holding it
  • The guys that go home early, don’t eat well
  • When you start to see what others miss, you are figuring it out
  • Enjoy the experience, it is special, most won’t ever understand that
  • One day you will understand what we are trying to teach you

Check Out JackRabbitFarms.com for More

Frank grew up in the San Fransisco Bay area and has lived in Northern California his whole life. He is a peace officer in California as well as a graduate student in Environmental Agriculture at CSU, Chico where he is researching Keyline Design in broad acre applications.

Frank is married and has three boys. In the past Frank has worked in retail, on extensive and intensive cattle ranches, cut firewood, worked as a horse trainer and riding instructor. Frank became aware of Permaculture about four years ago and has since completed his PDC, Holistic Management Training, and has co-founded a local 4-H club to expose children to the importance of the environment and preparedness.

Today we are spotlighting Permaculture within the belly of the beast in California’s Central Valley. The importance of making a difference where ever we can. I would also like to talk about the importance of stepping up to take on tasks that need to be done when we have the ability to do so.

We will also talk about Frank’s perspective as a middle aged person returning to University and the potential resource base found in the next generation to address the problems we inherited from the WWII generation.
