QUESTION.  So go ahead, ask yourself, is it possible to go on a hunting trip that turns into the greatest hunting trip of your life and never fire a shot or have a tag to hunt? 


Our Colorado hunt began about 1,000 days ago when I met a local businessman/rancher in a remote little town on the Eastern Plains of Colorado.   Actually I met him twice that year;  once when I bought a non-resident hunting voucher and again while out hunting for deer.   He actually killed a buck on the last day of the season that year, a buck that I had missed repeatedly due to high wind.  I have a heck of a time with gusting 55 m.p.h wind,  maybe you do too.  Here is the buck I missed several times, pretty cool crab claws on the front!   

We kept in touch occasionally and I'd stopped to see him in person to let him know that if he ever had an opportunity to sell a Colorado nonresident deer voucher or two, to keep me in mind.

Fast forward to 2021.

The stars aligned and two tags were available for purchase.  Having two sons who did NOT draw nonresident tags in Montana for elk and deer made it an easy call to put them on a hunt together in late October.   We were in a rather sleepy unit for big mule deer but never forget, big mule deer are found in every GMU (Game Management Unit) in Colorado.  Genetics and nutrition go a long way to grow big bone!

Driving down to Colorado on I-25 at 80 I spotted a good buck in the morning light in a canyon north of Sheridan, Wyoming and put on a NASCAR like maneuver to get stopped and get out the Swarovski spotting scope and put the iPhone to work.   This was a nice buck and he held tight for me to take the picture.  He was a long ways away for sure.  Can you tell it was windy?  

Upon arrival in Colorado, I got our lodging squared away and had a day before the season opened to do some scouting. If you have ever been to the flat, eastern side of Colorado you will know that natural moisture is rather scarce and ranchers have a tough time with keeping pastures in decent grass.   On my scouting trip that day I saw north of 40 deer and maybe a shooter buck or two.  I had a good feeling about things and my oldest son, a Captain in the USAF who lives in Colorado and works in Wyoming, his day-job involving sitting in an underground bunker with a large number of ICBM's at his command arrived the night before the season and it was game on!

Mid-day on opening day I was doing a short, couple mile loop through a picked corn field that had some great cuts and cover in the back end of the section with my son.  I was helping glass and carrying shooting sticks for him!  We were headed back to the pickup and met a gentleman who had pulled up in a truck and looked rather bewildered.  He was a hunter, dressed in the appropriate orange hat and orange jacket that is required in Colorado but was difficult to understand when he first spoke to us.  Turns out he had pulled up in the truck and was going to set up and take a stand along a fence line a couple hundreds yard from where we had parked but in walking out with his shooting sticks he had failed to properly input the clip into his rifle and it had fallen out in the picked cornfield.  We helped him find it and wished him well.  I will come back and revisit this gentleman later in this story but here is a picture of him.  Great guy and I hope he has a great holiday season ahead.  He has much to be thankful for.

If you have ever had the pleasure to hunt in the western United States you know that wind can be difficult.  Wind.  Blowing tumbleweeds and dirt, just blowing and blowing.   A local farmer we met had told us of a big buck he had seen some time earlier in the fall and had given us some pointers on where to concentrate our time and effort in the unit.  Being a good listener and having OnX software on our phones was key.   Cell phone service in the flatlands of Colorado is about everywhere and we knew we had to put in plenty of time behind the glass.   Having been hunting mule deer for over 50 years and my sons having killed a few good muleys we knew what to look for.  Where to look is the big question.  Big deer in Colorado can hide anywhere and are truly masters of disguise. 

On Day 2 my youngest son had not arrived due to some obligations in Atlanta where he resides so he wasn't going to be with us. My oldest was shooting a Sauer 6.5 Creedmoor and my youngest shoots a 6.5/.300 Weatherby Magnum, both rifles topped with good glass and both barrels threaded for a suppressor. Late in the afternoon we finally turned up a buck that was a true master of disguise.   We had pulled off a remote gravel road to open a gate and shed some heavy clothes before we planned to put on a good hike and cover some ground where we thought we might bump a good one in the windy conditions.    We took off from the approach and I have no idea how small that white patch was that caught my eye but it was but a speck.  I stopped, threw up the Swaro's, yes, I pack the 15 x 56's all the time and about went crazy when I made out the outline of a buck in the grass, motionless.   I told my son we need to get him killed but how?  The wind was raging, it was flat as a pancake and the buck knew we were there.  The deer turned his butt to us in the grass and would not move.  My son took the shooting sticks and started walking away from the buck which in itself was a great move to get a better angle in which to try a shot.  I had ranged the deer at a tad under 200 yards but in the wind it was a different ball game.  The first shot was a clean miss.   The second was a solid hit and he folded at 240 yards.  Not many mule deer hunters get to walk up on a buck with that many points.  9 on one side, 6 on the other.  Happy for my son was an understatement!  He will look sweet on the wall! 

My youngest got to Colorado and we had a good drive to the airport in Denver to pick him up.   We chowed at a Ted Turner MONTANA GRILL before heading out for the long drive back to the eastern part of the state.    The rifle season in eastern Colorado can be fickle if the corn isn't harvested as the big boys use the corn fields as their home base.  As corn is harvested they are of course, more visible and we were fortunate the weather was good and corn was coming down daily.  With my sons we make a pretty good team for getting good bucks on the ground.  I was blessed with great eyesight and nearly 68 years of honing that genetic trait with being a birdwatcher.   That eyesight must have been passed on to my boys and we have a great time in who can come up with the best "spot" on a deer.    Colorado is a great state for playing that game and it took a couple days for us to find a bomber.   We had found some good bucks but not great bucks.   We aren't hunting for meat on these out-of-state hunts as we are looking for the opportunity to put a beauty on the wall, probably what everyone who goes to Colorado wants.  

My youngest son works for the worlds largest consulting company in Atlanta and is an avid fisherman and bow hunter.   He took a degree in electrical engineering from the University of Georgia last year and is learning what corporate America is all about.  To be sure, a steady job in a southern metro area isn't conducive to killing big mule deer. At last light we were able to get our eyes on a dandy buck and had the evening to figure out how to make an approach at first light.  Nothing like OnX maps to give up-close data for getting landowner names to secure permission!  We knew we were up against an old smart deer.  This wasn't his first encounter with hunters and he had been through plenty of bow and rifle seasons to know that the rack on his head brought plenty of unwanted attention.  

I dropped the boys off on a county road and watched them head down into where we thought the buck might be.   The Colorado rut begins about 3 to 4 weeks later than the timing of major rut activity in TN and the buck we were after was not on any doe groups that we had been keeping an eye on.  Just an old buck that wasn't going to show himself in the daylight!  I bet you have been up against many bucks like that if you are reading this.  Show me a buck older than 4.5 years of age and I bet he fits the same narrative in nearly every part of the country.   The buck was exactly where we thought he would be and was in a difficult place to get a decent shot.   As you know, hunting elk or mule deer can be a matter of Nano-seconds and inches and this was no exception.   The deer was big, heavy-horned and at probably his greatest body weight of the year.   The first encounter the boys had, the deer won.   Three shots fired!  I was able to see the deer bounding away a mile or so off in the distance. My son had not had a good window to shoot through and the deer did what big bucks do, they vamoose quickly after that first shot.
If he were to go much further he would have crossed a paved road that was actually the boundary line to the GMU we had tags for.  We had no idea exactly where he was headed but knew he was probably winded and wouldn't go much more than a mile or two.  The boys had a long walk back to the truck and the wind was picking up.  Spirits were high after seeing him up close and personal.  We drove to where we thought the boys could initiate a good slow thorough stalk/drive and they bailed out with anticipation.  Sitting in the truck was excruciating but that is what Dads do.  Let them go and get it done at their speed, they didn't need Dad along to give any advice.   My job had been done long ago.  Much sooner than I anticipated I thought I heard a shot, then another, then another.  On the 5th shot I heard a tremendous "Thump" and a smile came easy.   I knew that sound and what it meant.   He was everything and more.

DIY, eastern plains, Colorado.  It doesn't get any better.  (for anyone who might inquire, we wear orange head gear in CO when hunting;  for better pictures we dress up some)

In writing this story I made it sound rather easy in going to Colorado and killing two beautiful bucks.  Looking back, it wasn't.   It's not easy anywhere in knocking down bucks like this unless you are on a special property.  This was do-it-yourself, seat of the pants, put on the miles, just do it hunting.  In all of this I failed to mention a few things.   I didn't mention being tailed by the game warden for two miles before she finally pulled us over!  Wow, what an attractive, professional LEO she was!  I didn't mention the thousands of wind turbines that crisscross eastern Colorado, I didn't mention the drought conditions, I didn't mention the great landowners, farmers, ranchers and ranch hands that we met and that most of them wanted and tried to help us get my sons a  good deer.  I did not mention why I am absolutely enthralled with using a suppressor when deer or elk hunting, I didn't mention getting steered to a great taxidermist in Colorado Springs and I didn't mention that our meat went to Americans who are less fortunate and vey much appreciated the free protein.  And last I failed to mention how blessed I am to be the Dad of these two young strapping American hunters. 

To conclude the tale on the hunter in the orange we encountered a few days prior, all I can say, he is lucky.  Turns out he had some dementia and a few days later spent a rather rough night outside.  He had gotten himself in a precarious jam, having "lost" his rifle, phone and pickup at dark. He was found safe and is probably done hunting alone at this point.   

As for me, I am still building points in Colorado, maybe some day I will get an opportunity that presents itself to use them.  All I wanted was an opportunity for my sons.  Blessed and thankful for the privilege and opportunity on those great mule deer is an understatement. 

Montana is in my blood and I was the only family member to draw non-resident elk and deer tags this year. If there is one word to describe the 2021 season in Montana I would have have to use a simple word, dry.   Very dry.  Dry as in drought and then some.  In April of 2014 we purchased a property in eastern Montana that we named, Ghost Ranch.   It sits on two miles of Yellowstone River riverbank.   Since our purchase we have been working hard to enhance the size of our mature deer and improve our habitat to ensure herd health while working to increase our protein food sources.  It's not easy.  Winters are rough, EHD and "blue tongue" are always prevalent in the fall, coyote and cat predation is year-round, and add to that a fair amount of stress after the heavy breeding the bucks do with all the does on the river-bottoms.   This year we were hit fairly hard with EHD/blue tongue.  Here are some bucks that were going to be shooters down the road but just didn't make it.  These deer were easily found and when spring arrives and we begin shed hunting we should find plenty of "dead-heads".   Many of the good bucks we had on trail camera's prior to the start of the rifle season never showed again, most likely dying from EHD.  It seems the EHD kills the older bucks and fawns.  Why I don't know.  I am not a biologist but if anyone can give me some insight feel free.  I am a pretty good visual behaviorist with stock charts and can find dead and alive  (find magpies, eagles,  crows and ravens, the rest is easy) deer  fairly well.  Long ago it was my goal to try to see 2,000 deer a year.   Anywhere, just watch and observe, from winter range in Colorado while skiing to any state in the country.  I learned a lot and fortunately am still in the learning phase of these magnificent Yellowstone whitetails.  I have a long way to go.     


I would guesstimate approximately 15 to 25 dead on my place this fall that I found.  Disappointing to see all that potential disappear so fast!  In life we deal with the cards we are dealt.

The fall started off with my youngest son drawing an archery antelope tag.  It was dry and a very high percentage of antelope and mule deer fawns in eastern Montana died in mid-June from the tremendous heat.  They simply cooked in those 104 to 107 degree days on the open prairie.  We had a whole lot of fun and spent 3 days together which in itself was priceless.  Lots of blown stalks, wind a major culprit and only one respectable shot opportunity that didn't pan out.


In early September my son had a good friend who was on the fishing team with him in college come to Ghost Ranch  and bow hunt.   Great young man and he had a great time getting this beauty.  He was fortunate to draw a tag!

We took 3 bucks off the Ghost Ranch this year.   This one was taken by a family friend during the rut and taped out rather wide!

I hunted hard for a mule deer and was soundly disappointed.  Never once saw a muley buck that I could remotely call "mature".   This whitetail I killed was simply an old warrior that caught my eye and reminded me of myself I guess, a tad worn down but still on top of his game, he wasn't getting his butt kicked by any younger bucks!    I passed up some magnificent bucks that will be better left for younger hunters, it's that point in my life.  I shot what I wanted and couldn't ask for anything more!  My wife hates this picture but it shows two things; just how happy I still get after so many years of having this kind of fun and two, that I still love sitting in a stand in the cold!
Elk hunting was tough.  The property I hunt had been hammered the first week of the rifle season.  The owner and his party shot 9 bulls, every one a 3-point (6 pointer for you in TN) or better and they shot 8 bucks!   Man, talk about some carnage!    Good on them, and it made it tough on me.   I spent a large amount of time trying to turn up a good bull and out of the 6 elk I saw in driving nearly 3,200 miles over the rest of the season, all were bulls and I was able to tip over the biggest one.   


I spotted these bulls at 520 yards and got to around 80 yards before the wind swirled and the big boy stood up.  It was a chip shot off the sticks and the hard work began.  Elk extraction is tough unless you have a tractor and my tractor was about 115 miles away.  My friend thumped a good bull too!

In reflection I feel terrible for the state of mule deer in eastern Montana.  It's not good now and may not get better any time soon.   I had gone into the Region 7 office of MT FWP and bought my tags before the season for non-resident trapping, migratory waterfowl, swan and doe tags.  I bought a doe mule deer tag and immediately tore it up.  The clerk couldn't even fathom my thinking but in my mind I just saved another muley doe and next years fawns.  You do what you can for the resource.  It's obvious that biologists are behind the curve with mounting pressure to sell more tags and raise revenue.  Never forget, follow the money and most things in life will solve themselves.

On a personal note, it's been a great year.   The markets started off the year so strong it was hard to believe and things have continued along amid all the lies and distortion that government wants you to believe.  My family is healthy and for that I am most thankful.  I had made a decision this year to get baptized as an adult and accomplished that in the Yellowstone River in the last warm day of the fall. 
The buck I killed last year in Montana finally showed up the other day and I put it up in it's rightful place.  In my old age it will be a nice deer to remember from where it came.   In that country the silence is deafening.  Believe it.   Where he came from and how he made it that far in life is hard to believe.  I was lucky to get it done!

Those two bucks came from different ranches about 3 miles away from one another.  I was lucky to get both of them.

I will leave you with a video I took the other day.  It's pretty cool of America's finest bird!

I hope you have a great Christmas season and that you had a whole lot of fun in the field this year.  From our house to yours I wish you a great 2022 ahead.

Never forget, the best is yet to come!  Believe it.

Right from wrong, Right from left

Over the  weekend I was in a chat with a liberal and told him that the liberal left supporting America to carry a vaxx passport is like the leftist loons opposing Americans to carry an ID at a voting booth.  The conversation turned to Kyle Rittenhouse and I just had to tell him that if you are more offended by a young man defending himself than a career criminal plowing through a Christmas parade of innocent people then maybe the problem is in the mirror.

And speaking of mirrors, did you see Jessie Smollet bring that mirror into the court room the other day?  

He was trying to get an up-close glimpse of his attacker!

Easiest December Decision Ever

Fly a commercial airline from Billings to Nashville wearing a mask in the airport and in the aircraft or just get in the truck, whip on some Sirius XM and put it on cruise control? 

No brainer.  

The airlines don't get it.   Neither does Brandon or the biggest liar in America, Dr. Fauci.   FFS, wake up America.

Here is some science if you don't believe me.  Just click & learn.


How much inflation, poverty, looting, mental health issues with children, forced shots, lockdowns and fake data do Americans need before they admit they were scammed by Biden?

11/11/2021 Future Veteran, Oldest Son, Proud Father

 Thank you for serving!

Briefly Speaking from the Ghost Ranch

Spent a large number of months here in 2020.   Had much to ponder and question.

So they told us, "15 days to flatten the curve".

Then they locked America down for 18 months.

Then they required masks in commercial aircraft.

Then the Fauci-ites tricked you into getting 3 shots in a year.  Injections that do NOT provide you with immunity.   

And about everyone I meet doesn't question it.

What the hell is wrong with America?

It is amazing how peaceful and calm life can be when you distance yourself from all the negative bullshit and pessimistic energy out there.    Cut it loose.   You don't need it, you don't need to hear it.

Shut if off.  All of it.  The social media, bullshit "friends", products, advertising, television.   Be selective in your battles and make dam sure you know and love your tribe. 

That is all for today, carry on.............. 

Joe Biden, FATHER

If you happen to unfortunately watch the national media and hear or watch President Biden tell Americans how to raise their children you might want to ask yourself a simple question.

How did Hunter Biden turn out?   Be honest.

Friday, October 15, 2021


The leftist, liberal, marxist snobs that play God running the TWITTER universe are the worst media hacks in America.

They make the libtards on CNN look ferocious.


This country has a tough time thinking.  Look around folks.

A mandate for working Americans to get injected will have ZERO effect on COVID rates.

Why isn't a single soul in the media talking about this?

You know why?

It goes without saying that Hunter Biden is probably the smartest person our President knows!

Back on April 1 I put a blog post out on Hunter Biden, check it out.

For the life of me I can't figure out why people, though not from the major media outlets, keep hounding this guy.  He is 51 years old and hey, who hasn't made a few youthful indiscretions in the past?  I mean, c'mon man, things like leaving crack pipes in rental cars, impregnating pole dancers, have sex with relatives and having child porn on a laptop he dropped off for a repair all the while blowing through millions while getting nasty tats and some rehab?

FED bankers

It is truly amazing that the average American consumer, that is, someone who probably works and not someone who lives off the hind tit of the American taxpayer, can recognize the ravages of inflation in their life and know that it is only getting worse.

No matter what Indian reservation you live on or are from you need to know that the bullshit you get from your Government on data sets of inflation and employment are probably the most manipulated numbers since the last time your tribe was supposed to get a Per Cap!  

Let's GO Brandon!

My complaint to the CEO of Southwestern Airlines:

Dear Mr. Kelly,  I am writing to urge you to defy the so-called vaccine mandate, first because there is no signed executive order at this time, second and more importantly, because you know it's wrong.

It's wrong on every level.  

If you made it to CEO of a big corporation, you've got to have some intelligence.  You must be aware the spike protein causes vascular disease and blood clots.  You must be aware the 'vaccines' are registered with the SEC as "gene therapies."  You must be aware these gene therapies program your DNA to produce the spike proteins that produce blood clots.  You must be aware of the micro-clotting issues with the vaccines.  You must be aware pilots are already at high risk for blook clots - just from flying.  You must be aware of the number of deaths mounting week after week from the vaccines, not only from the US VAERS, but from Europe as well.  

You must be aware the PCR test cycled up past 28 cycle thresholds is pure garbage and results in false positives.  You must be aware how "liberally" our authorities counted almost all deaths as due to Covid.  You must be aware how financially incentivized hospitals are to admit and then intubate "covid" patients.  You must be aware the CDC has issued a level 1 lab alert pulling the PCR test as of end of the year because it's so inaccurate.

You must be aware that all vaccines offered to the American public have NOT been FDA approved, and only Comirnaty has been approved, which is not available on the market for US citizens.

The bottom line, this whole adventure has been an exercise in  revealing how UN-benefic and malific our government agencies and authorities actually are, and how very much the American people are lied to and then exploited for crony gains. 

If it does not feel right, then don't do it.  If you don't believe in medical mandates, then don't be a part or cog in the march towards medical tyranny.

This is it.  The rehearsal is over.  For many people, they are faced with making a serious decision:  risk death or disability to keep a job, or in your case, put 100's and 1,000's and 10's of 1,000's at risk for death or disability because someone told you to.

We each have to account for our own actions.  Where will you stand in these history making times? Will your integrity hold true if you comply with this mandate?

Yours truly,

Covid for KIDS?

 Dr. Scott Atlas on Vaccine Mandates for Children, Natural Immunity, and Florida’s COVID-19 Surge

“To me, it’s unconscionable that a society uses its children as shields for adults. Children do not have a significant risk from this illness… Are we [as] a society, a civilization … going to inject our children with an experimental drug that they don’t have a significant benefit from, to shield ourselves?”
—Dr. Scott Atlas

Thursday, September 16, 2021

Slime or sleaze it's business as usual!

Dear Fed,

You gotta be kidding me, so it just dawned on Jay Powell that there is an ethics problem at the Fed? 

Tell me, where do the original shares of The Federal Reserve System sit today and does Aldrich's ( Warburg's ) Federal Reserve Act make any mention of restricting the ethical behavior of the original shareholders?

Unless there are claw backs and prison time, this will continue into perpetuity. It's just like Pelosi loading up on Tesla stock once it was clear that Ice Cream Joe was going to get in - her own legislation pumped her stock values up.

Let's just be honest and say anything goes.

We are the Elite, we make the rules, therefore,

The rules don't apply to us.

Treason is not a crime.

Pedophilia is not a crime.

Murder is not a crime.

Lying under Oath is not a crime.

Kickbacks are not a crime.

Anything we do in Congress, the Senate or Fed is not a crime.

But not getting vaccinated is a crime!

Forget the fact that unnamed, anonymous, unelected federal reserve shareholders control the largest printing press in the world.  This is all going to collapse and in a horrific fashion.  You can see it plain and clear. The Fed has trapped themselves and there is no way out of a default either by inflation or deflation.

Good luck America, especially the poor and middle class.

The Biden bullshit............

Criminal aliens, the union of the United States Postal Service employees, esteemed Members of the United States Congress (congresscritters for those of you in Mandaree, Pine Ridge and Ogema) and their respective staff are ALL EXEMPT from the Biden experimental vaccine mandate.

Remember, it is NOT about the science.

In cowboy language it's Bullshit Artists at the feed trough.................

The leaders of the Boston and Dallas Federal Reserve Banks said they would sell off individual stocks they own, invest the proceeds in diversified indexed funds or cash savings and cease trading in individual securities.

The Thursday announcement comes after the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas this week disclosed that its president, Robert Kaplan, bought and sold millions of dollars in stocks and other investments in 2020. A disclosure from the Boston Fed showed that its president, Eric Rosengren, also was an active trader last year, albeit at a smaller scale.

Both men defended their actions as consistent with their respective bank’s code of conduct policies, but said they didn’t wish to create any perception that their trading of securities and investments would conflict with their role in setting monetary policy. Both men said the sale of their holdings would be complete by Sept. 30.

Since Friday, all 12 of the Fed’s regional banks have provided disclosures of their leaders’ 2020 financial profiles.

Messrs. Kaplan and Rosengren said they would stop trading in markets the way they did last year. In his statement, Mr. Rosengren said, “The appearance of such permissible personal investment decisions has generated some questions, so I have made the decision to divest these assets to underscore my commitment to Fed ethics guidelines. It is extremely important to me to avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest, and I believe these steps will achieve that.”

In his disclosure for 2020, Mr. Kaplan stood out among the regional Fed leaders for making multiple trades in company shares and investment funds in excess of $1 million each.

Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren.


Documents provided by his bank show that Mr. Kaplan was also active in the stock market before last year, with many large transactions since he became Dallas Fed president in 2015.

His stockholdings in 2020 included Apple Inc., Facebook Inc. and Chevron Corp. His disclosures for his Fed tenure also listed multiple purchases and sales of over $1 million in investments that could be sensitive to changes in monetary policy, with transactions in S&P index futures, the BlackRock Floating Rate Income Strategies Fund, the BlackRock Floating Rate Income Trust and the iShares Floating Rate Bond Fund ETF.

Messrs. Kaplan and Rosengren didn’t respond to requests for interviews about their trading.

A Dallas Fed spokesman on Tuesday said the bank president’s activities had been approved by bank lawyers. The Dallas Fed employee code of conduct says staff should avoid conduct “which gives rise to an actual or apparent conflict of interest.” It adds that employees with high-level information on meetings of the interest-rate-setting Federal Open Market Committee “should avoid engaging in any financial transaction the timing of which could create the appearance of acting on inside information concerning Federal Reserve deliberations and actions.”

Mr. Kaplan’s trading “should be a scandal,” said Professor Peter Conti-Brown of the University of Pennsylvania, an expert on the structure of the Federal Reserve. “If he’s making directional bets on interest rates, we will not be able to tell if he’s advocating for policies for the public good or talking his book. It’s a fundamental conflict of interest.” Mr. Conti-Brown also said that the perception that Mr. Kaplan could personally profit from his Fed role feeds into longstanding skepticism of the Fed held in some corners.

Kathryn Judge, a law professor at Columbia University, said Fed officials “are privy to all kinds of information that has the potential to move markets.” While Mr. Kaplan may have followed the letter of the code, she said it is unclear if he followed the spirit.

“Part of what you want out of a Fed president is in leadership, and leadership means not just complying with the rules, but modeling the best possible behavior,” Ms. Judge said.

In a CNBC interview Wednesday, Richard Fisher, who led the Dallas Fed between 2005 and 2015, flagged the complicated finances he and other wealthy men have brought to the Fed, and flagged what he sees as the value of having those with market experience working at the central bank. Mr. Kaplan worked at investment bank Goldman Sachs for two decades and led its investment-banking work before leaving the firm in 2006.

The controversy around the trading “will blow off over time,” Mr. Fisher said on the television channel, adding, “I don’t think we should hold [Mr. Kaplan] negatively here or have any inference of anything nefarious.”

Disclosure information released by the New York Fed showed that its leader, John Williams, didn’t engage in any significant trading last year. Asked Wednesday about the propriety of any Fed official actively engaging in financial market trading, he said, “We have very clear rules and restrictions on activities, financial activities” and rules governing disclosure.

“If you’re asking, should those policies, you know, be reviewed or changed, I think that’s a broader question that I don’t have a particular answer for right now. But I do think that the restrictions are, you know, very important to make sure…people aren’t able to transact around FOMC meetings,” Mr. Williams said.

All 12 regional Fed bank presidents were approved earlier this year for new five-year terms as part of a regular process that was overseen this time around by Fed governor Lael Brainard.

The Fed’s 12 regional banks are quasi-private institutions overseen by local boards of directors drawn from the private community. But they operate under the control of the Fed board as well, which is explicitly part of the government.

And you thinks markets are fair?

I learned long, long ago there is nothing fair in market structure in the United States.    99% of financial advisors or stockbrokers or those with fancy titles at major investment firms like "Vice-President" of "wealth management"  (they don't manage wealth, they derive fees and commissions from your assets to keep their titles and offices)  don't have a clue about market structure.  That said, market structure, honesty and fairness in markets are at odds.

The recent revelations on Board members of the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States and their personal trading ahead of Fed policy decisions is a wonderful example about how the rules for the big guys are far different than for the little guys.

Where is the United States Securities & Exchange Commission?

Open your eyes.  All of them, FBI, FED, FDA, CDC, CIA, ATF, CIA, SEC, FINRA (talk about the fox guarding the henhouse) and on and on and on.  Virtually worthless.

The real robbery is yet to come.   There isn't a Democrat alive who will be honest and can describe "HYPERINFLATION" that is on its way to hammer the working class of this great nation.

Sleepy Ice Cream Man

Isn't it a tell on America that everyone who reads "SLEEPY ICE CREAM MAN" knows who it is in reference to? 

This is the guy who loves open borders and mandatory vaccinations.  Come one, come all.  Free entrance, free everything, just vote Democrat.      

And the guys in the GOP aren't much better.    

1.  They tripped over themselves to concede the election

2.  They let Schumer, Pelosi and company run roughshod over them as the Deep State Dems concocted various Russia-gate lies and literally exhausted Trump's full term with trivialities based on outright prevarications. Not one solitary person has had to answer for that.

3. They went along with lockdowns, masking, etc.

4. They never lifted a finger while Burn, Loot & Murder was going on a national rampage. 

5.  I could go on ad-infinitum but you get the point.

Long term the stock market only goes one way.................

There are 5 psychological factors for investing with success.  These include a well-rounded personal life, a positive attitude, the motivation to make money, lack of conflict (such as psychological hang-ups about success), and the ultimate responsibility for trading results.

Most pessimists are focused on being right rather than making money.  Most people don't understand what traders do and should stick to buying mutual funds and getting their market intelligence from the TV experts who tout the endless predictions of market disaster.

God Bless America

I don’t know whom to be more ashamed of, a President who is obviously losing his mental faculties and whom will not take any real blame for spilled US blood, his terrible planning and decision-making, or, more ashamed of a Left-Wing Media who is doing everything they can to plug their fingers in the holes of the Biden Administration boat which is already under-water.  C'mon man, can there be a greater hypocrisy than questioning the character of those Americans who voted for Trump while turning around and voting for Biden?  

81 million votes?   You know and I know it is all bullshit.

After the military finishes with equity and diversity classes and sex reassignment surgery, then we will hunt them down.  Biden’s handlers and their entire posse, have been destroying morality, Christianity, and American culture and now they send him out to chirp about God and Country?

Friday, August 20th

I hear the State of Minnesota is in the hunt for some Afghan refugees.  Good on them.   Lay some more weight on the back of MN taxpayers so they can attend the George Floyd Institute.

The only thing missing from todays Biden press conference was Ice Cream Joe walking out on stage with a Top Gun bomber jacket and Aviator sun glasses.  What a shit show of lunacy.   

There will be tremendous carnage coming out of Kabul.  Carnage for the whole world to see.    The Taliban going door-to-door looking for the Afghan Army and Americans reminds me of the Biden COVID ARMY going door-to-door looking for the unvaccinated.

The Congressional greed, the MIC greed, the Pentagon greed is all there to see.  Follow the money and you will find the blood of great American military men and women.

I have a lot of prayer ahead of me this weekend and beyond.

Please join me.   


Make no mistake............

The one thing the United States government seems to be good at lately is the importation of aliens from Third World countries at the expense of the American taxpayer.

Buying votes in this manner is criminal.

Biden, Afghanistan, America

All of you who voted for a dementia patient and a shallow narcissist who slept her way into the VP slot, what did you think was going to happen?   Can't the American voter figure out that anyone who went to law school is trained to NEVER be a decent politician?  Excuse that oxymoron, decent politician is similar to military intelligence is similar to coherent Biden.

If there is any question that the MIC, (military industrial complex), and the Pentagon (U.S. Military intelligence)  were outsmarted by a rag tag bunch of terrorist fighters who kill on sight and live with goats need look no farther than Afghanistan.

Congratulations to Jimmy Carter down in Plains, GA.   Joe Biden is taking over the crown as the most incompetent President in the history of the United States.     The bottom line is this and everyone knows it, Biden is NOT a functioning President.  When the going gets tough, we have no leadership.  

Trust me on this, no matter how bad things are now, they are going to get a hell of a lot worse with this rag-tag bunch of misfits calling the shots from the Oval Office. 

Handicapped with no excuses.


This girl has been around a couple of years and is doing well.  

I am surprised coyotes haven't gotten her down for a feast.

She hangs close to apple trees this time of year and looks healthy.   Not certain how she lost that front leg, whether from a mowing machine, collision, gun shot, who knows?

Score Media and Gaming

It was a hell of a ride.   Thank you and a shout-out to all involved in the buyout of Score Media by Penn National Gaming.

It is big money that is made by sitting.   Not trading.

Buying this company early when it traded in Canada at .60 cents and adding at higher and higher prices.   Then the U.S. Listing, which was a complete farce along with the 10 for 1 reverse stock split.

Adding to my big gains was the sale of call options.

I was driving in the early morning across western Kentucky when I got the news from an old friend on the merger.

My biggest day ever in a single stock.  Ever.

70% was a thing of beauty.   

Remember, it is the sitting.  In good times and bad.

ATT, wake up!

CNN currently has the infamous ZOOM masturbator, Jeffrey Toobin analyzing the Andrew Cuomo sexual harassment allegations as their "legal expert".

Mr. Stankey, please, step in and put an end to this madness.
