Epstein and the Democrats

The fact that Epstein's "client list" is still secret and Ghislane Maxwell is mute tells you how powerful and dangerous Epstein's "clients" are.

We'll never know who his clients were and what they did.

Justice for the abused victims will never happen and the guilty have a "Get Out of Jail" card. 

Just ask Slick Willie and the cattle trader, Cankles, his wife (partner in crime).

Melinda Gates knew, that's why she ditched Bill.

Can't you see it now?

In the not too distant future there will be a biological male who is a golfer who will want to enter a women's golf tournament.

I don't think there is enough popcorn.

That will be called DOOM PORN!!!!   

It's a crazy world out there.   Keep your wits about you.  Stay out of cities where minorities are a high percentage of the population.  Shut off television.   Talk to friends, don't text them.   Eat right.   Get your version of great exercise.

Be a good person.

American Hero, American Cowboy

Growing up I had some very good cowboys teach me about horses.    My real mentor in "everything horse" was our next door neighbor, Martin Geiser.   Martin was a horse man.  Wasn't a thing he didn't know or couldn't do or couldn't answer when asked.   Martin Geiser was pure horseman.

Others along the way were his sons, Gale, now deceased and older son Eugene.   Both good on a horse.   Martins wife, Sybil even babysat bronc-rider Larry Sandvick so something must have rubbed off him too!  Larry only made it to the National Finals 12 times!!

Living behind us was Mervel Hall.   My pal, M.J. Hall was his son.   I saw Mervel ride some of the rankest saddle horses on earth.  Horses so dam wild and strong-headed I wouldn't have gotten on them for anything.  Mervel rode them like he owned them.   He had plenty of saddles he had won bronc riding and he was put into the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame.    I still owe Mervel a catch rope, (that is a story in itself)  well M.J. probably does but son, M.J. went on ahead of his own making.

Mervel Raymond Hall was born on the family ranch near Elbowoods in 1928 and grew up on horseback. He served overseas in the U.S. Navy and has ranched and farmed near Mandaree since 1948. Ed Hall Sr. was his grandfather. He reared a family of six children.

The NDRA named him champion bareback and saddle bronc rider in 1958 and 1964 and all around Cowboy in 1964. Hall participated in saddle bronc, bareback and bull riding in rodeos from Fort Worth to Denver to Tucson. In 1961, he won the world famous Miles City Bucking Horse Sale bareback event.

Hall also participated in dozens of rodeos around North Dakota, including Garrison, Fort Yates, New Salem, New Town, White Earth and Killdeer, earning championships in saddle bronc and bareback many times during 1951 1966. In 1976, Hall was the bareback winner at the North Dakota Cowboys Reunion rodeo.

He was known by many as having one of the strongest arms in the bare-back riding event. He liked to win saddles at rodeos around home, but also found time for the All American Indian Activities Association (now the Great Plains Indian Rodeo Association) events, where he was the saddle bronc champion in 1967 and the bareback champion in 1969.

Hall is a humble man and when once asked about his rodeo achievements, he commented, “Well, I went to quite a few of them.” Not one to brag about himself, his nomination packet shows that he is entitled to toot his own horn. Events from Amidon to Wing and from Fort Worth to Tucson over 16 years outline his long and illustrious rodeo career. Merval Hall died in November 2015.

I worked for J.C. "John" Stevenson once and was forever grateful for that opportunity.   J.C. is also in the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame.   J.C. was a true cowboy --- a rancher, livestock marketer, cattle buyer, rodeo producer and stock contractor.   He was a generous man and paid me well for my work.   

In my youth, going to grade school and junior high in Mandaree, N.D. on the Ft. Berthold Indian Reservation I had a band teacher by the name of Bob Rindt.   I played the valve trombone for Bob Rindt in his band but am forever grateful for the cowboy he instilled in me growing up.   Here is a piece on Bob Rindt.   He was a hell of a guy and I am better for having had him as a teacher and band instructor.

Robert Rindt was well known in North Dakota for his more than 40 years of teaching; performing rope, whip, trick shooting and tumbling acts; and producing rodeos and other entertainment shows. His wife, Doris, was his partner in many of those acts, and they were once featured in Life Magazine for a Minot State University performance.

Rindt was so good with a whip that he could cut a small piece of paper out of Doris’ mouth at 15 feet. His riding tricks included hanging from the side of a horse by only one stirrup. Not limited to trick acts, he also rode saddle broncs and Brahma bulls and bull-dogged steers.

Living near Drake, in McHenry County, Rindt was 17 years old when he began participating in rodeos. He rode his horse 40 miles to Towner to enter a rodeo—and rode back home with the $15 he won in the saddle-bronc riding event. For the next 50 years, he worked between 10 and 15 rodeos each year. He and Doris once performed a specialty act for President Truman at a Missouri rodeo.

Both he and Doris taught school in a number of locales from 1945-‘66. Although his classroom was 6th grade, he and Doris also taught band and music. Doris was hired to teach physical education and dancing, and Rindt taught leather craft before and after school.

While teaching at Fort Totten, he was affectionately called ‘Uncle Bob’. He was 66 years old and still roping, riding and cracking the whip. Duane Howard recalled meeting him at a late-1940s Indian Fall Fair in Fort Totten. Howard says Rindt had a trailer load of the best tack he had ever seen. Rindt hosted play days and ‘mount money rodeos’ where Howard, among others, learned the basics of bronc riding and steer wrestling. His influence and magnanimity were lifelong gifts to countless kids.

After his formal retirement from teaching, Rindt spent most of his time raising horses and Brahma cattle on his B.R. Ranch west of Sawyer. He produced his own ‘Wild West Shows’ there for several years, one to two per year from the 1970s through the early ‘90s. He also enjoyed sharing his expertise with 4-H members and Boy Scouts and loved entertaining and teaching.

Rindt was a teacher, rodeo cowboy and throwback to the wild and wooly days when “cowboys were cowboys”. He is fondly remembered by many for his contributions to North Dakota’s sport of rodeo showmanship. ‘Cowboy Bob’ died in 1997.


Another North Dakota cowboy I knew was Paige Baker Sr., another inductee into the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame.  In fact in helping the Baker family put up prairie hay I remember some of the wildest rides of my life were on the dump-rake being pulled by a pickup!  How I stayed alive and hung on to that seat was a miracle.    Today, Paige's youngest son, Gerard lives on a ranch about 10 miles , as the crow flies from my Ghost Ranch in Montana.   Gerard and I were alter boys at St. Anthony's Church in Mandaree, were confirmed together and started high school together as bunk mates in the dorm at St. Mary's High School in New England, N.D.

My father, Douglas Parisian had the greatest respect for Paige.   Here is a piece on Mr. Paige Baker, Sr.:

Paige James Baker Sr., also known by his Hidatsa name as Sacred Horse, was born in Independence, North Dakota, on January 1, 1913. Born to James and Ethel (Tail) Baker, he attended school in his hometown, the Santee Indian School in Nebraska and the Chemawa Indian School in Oregon.

Paige came back to North Dakota during the depression and got jobs with different ranches and rode saddle broncs in rodeos. On February 11, 1938, he married Cora Young Bird at Manning. They had five children–Fred, Paige Jr., Mary and Gerard.

Eventually, they began to raise their own livestock. In 1945, with the help of relatives, they chopped logs and put up a log house in the Heart Butte area. They ranched there for five years, while Cora and Fred spent the winters in Independence so Fred could attend school.

In 1952, the family moved to McKenzie County on the western edge of the Fort Berthold Reservation. They built a four-room log house and a barn there. In addition to operating his ranch, Paige worked for a number of the larger ranchers who had cattle both off and on the reservation. He was on the last, big cattle drive to the Dunn Center train depot.

He loved a good horse and always had one he could trust to rope from. He enjoyed rodeos and roping and was a well-known rodeo announcer on the reservation. Paige spent many hours riding, moving cattle and preparing hay for winter feed, and he cut hay with a team of horses even in his later years.

Paige was a great believer in modern education and, along with his wife, saw to it that all of their children went on to college and earned degrees. He was active in many organizations, including a member of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, Mandaree; on the Board of Trustees of St. Anthony’s Catholic Mission, Mandaree; the North Dakota Social Service Board; the North Dakota Vocational Rehabilitation Board, North Dakota Vocational Educational Board; the Mountain Plains Education and Economic Development Program; and the Mandaree School Board for 12 years, on which he served as president.

He was also involved on the tribal council, as a tribal judge for eight years and as a court magistrate for the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation. Paige died of cancer on January 8, 1982, at the age of 69.


In Mandaree, North Dakota on the Ft. Berthold Reservation across the street lived the Chase Family.  Great family, great kids.  Emerson Chase ran the show and is also in the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame.  In retrospect I lived in the middle of Emerson Chase, Mervel Hall and Bob Rindt.   I lived within a throw of 3 guys now enshrined in the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame.   

After my family moved to Pine Ridge, South Dakota I was able to ride a bit with renowned saddle maker Dave Dahl down in Pine Ridge, S.D. when in high school.  We had moved my horse GINGER down to South Dakota and I rode fairly often on weekends.   I was a three-sport letterman in football, basketball and track so there just wasn't much time during the week to ride.   Dave knew his stuff and had just been a saddle bronc rider before he began his lifelong journey of saddle making.  Here is a bit on my friend, Dave Dahl.  Dave was honored to be put into the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame in 2018.   He left an impression on me.  He did what he said he was going to do.  One way or another.   

David (Dave) Dahl, internationally-known bronc saddle maker, was born on December 12,1945 to John and Mildred Dahl at Keene, North Dakota. The third child born in a family of eleven children, he grew up on the family farm. He attended grade school at both the Keogh School and Reservation Schools near his home. In 1962, Dave graduated from the New Town, North Dakota High School.

Dave worked on the Keogh Ranch, the Nelson Ranch, and the Figure Four Ranch and rode saddle bronc at various rodeos throughout North Dakota during his high school years. In college, he was very active on the rodeo team. He was the team captain in 1967 and won the National Intercol-legiate Rodeo Saddle Bronc Championship. In 1968, he won the South Dakota Rodeo Association Saddle Bronc Championship. Dave joined the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, winning rodeos at Wahoo and Chambers, Nebraska as well as Hudson, Wisconsin and various others. Dave graduated from Black Hills state college (now Black Hills State University) in 1969 with a Bachelor of Science Degree and a major in education, and taught for three years.

Dave’s saddle making career began when he ran into rodeo buddy, Dick Jones near Ft. Pierre, SD. Jones was making saddles, and Dave wanted to make one for his younger brother. An experienced saddle bronc rider himself, Dave took to making bronc riding saddles with ease. His hard work and self-motivation, as well as his love of rodeo, has led him to become one of the top bronc saddle makers in the nation. World Champion customers include Tom Reeves, Glen O’Neill, Jeff Willert, Taos Muncy, and Zeke Thurson, just to name a few. In 2016, six cowboys at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo rode on Dahl saddles. In 2017, eleven of the top twelve Canadian finalists rode Dahl saddles as well as ten of the top fifteen at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. Dave currently makes 54 saddles per year and has no plans to retire anytime soon. Dave is the proud father of two daughters and one son (deceased).


The greatest cowboy I have yet to meet is J.R. Vezain.


J.R. is probably the toughest cowboy in America.   I admire him and some day hope to meet him.  What an inspiration and human being.   All credit he gives to his Creator, and his family  It is his attitude and faith that are all "COWBOY".    J.R. Vezain.  American.  Christian. Cowboy.

CLOWN SHOW

America with 350,000,000 citizens and an 80 year old Dementia candidate as the President.

The circus is in it's final act.

If you HUNT here's some unsolicited advice..............

Just remember, on day 3 when that pretty 3 year old is standing there, you have more time, be patient and hunt hard.  You might get a crack at a bomber, maybe not. One thing is certain.

You can NOT shoot big bucks if you shoot little bucks.  

Spot on the absolute truth...........NEVER FORGET

The "billions of dollars to Ukraine" are mostly kicked back to the children and family members of Government here in the US.

It is just a method to steal taxpayer dollars as is most foreign aid.

FACTS from around the World!!

The fruitcakes are everywhere these days.   Look around and be amused.

You see, today the world's current population is about 8,025,787 living souls.

In the world today, approximately 8,025,787 humans were procreated and born to the female gender.

The number of humans born around the globe to men:   0

Please do your due diligence and fact check these numbers.


Political Insanity on Display!

The FED called inflation "transitory"!   That is all you need to know about the predictive ability of the Central Bank.

They also failed America on interest rates.   They failed on S & L's. They failed on real estate.  They failed on inflation.  They have failed on maximizing employment.  

For starters, 39% of Americans say they have skipped meals to afford their housing payments And among millennials, that figure rose to 44%. (Among Baby Boomers, it was 20%.)

And now they are going to predict weather?

When J. Powell walks out to a press conference to announce we can easily live with 3 or 4 or 5% inflation it will be the ultimate slap to the American way of life.  There is no credibility with these government employees.  None.

Abolish this institution please.   Just end the Fed.

Stop. Just Stop. Stop the World!

Stop the world and let me off.    After reading the Sunday paper, watching some television (which I do about 10 minutes per week) and scouring my favorite internet news outlets I can't help but think the crazies are out in force.  

It must be spring.

Here's the latest pedophile at work for the world to see.

PEDO @ WORK!!

I am not certain if that scores higher than showering with your 15 year old daughter but perhaps that question that could be put to President Joe Biden.

  

Kitchen Disco

Now it's usually busting a move in the kitchen!

Some people have it I guess.   Moving your body to the beat came rather naturally, I sure didn't work on it. 

It's been a long time since tearing up the dance floor at Danceteria, Studio 54, Foggy's Notion, Time Machine, D.O. Mills, Diego's, Scotty's on Seventh, Elephant Bar, Flannagans, Confetti and Maxi's to name a few.

Best years of my life.

Wouldn't change a day. 

Be Honest. Just try to be honest.

Snow Geese


Who doesn't love the sound of a few thousand snow geese overhead?   If you have never been under a flock of say, 10,000 birds you should attempt to find a way.   You just simply will never forget the thrill and sound!  This spring I was able to see the single largest number of snow geese ever within my vision field!  Incredible was an understatement.  It was like the Snow Goose God's were in alignment on a magical spring day in Nebraska!

Different strokes for different folks


Chased these birds across South Dakota and Nebraska during track season in high school.   Awesome for the lungs and legs in the Pine Ridge country.   It's been years since I killed one and probably never will again.   Hunting them today reminds me of ground swatting a Canadian goose.

About Dean Thomas Parisian

Growing up, his father worked for the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the family  lived on many Indian reservations across the Great Plains.  From the hills of the Sisseton-Wahpeton tribe on west to the Big Horn Mountains on the Crow Reservation were considered home.  It was near Wounded Knee on the Pine Ridge Reservation of South Dakota that Dean  Parisian spent his high school years. Only 80 years before, the Hotckiss guns were carefully trained on a group of terrified and disarmed Sioux in the hills northeast of Pine Ridge. It wasn’t a battlefield at Wounded Knee, like historians suggest, it was an assassination; as were America’s first freedom fighters; Sitting Bull, Dull Knife and Geronimo. The carnage continues today as the Indian Affairs Trust Office still can not account for  billions of dollars of Native American fund transfers.

Dean Parisian founded CHIPPEWA PARTNERS, Native American Advisors, Inc. a Registered Investment Advisor, in 1995 and closed in 2019.The firm was a manager to an exclusive clientele and was closed to new clients for many years. As a Registered Investment Advisor, their expertise developed over 35 years balanced experience, integrity and tremendous work ethic.  

Mr. Parisian founded the company to manage serious wealth for Native American tribes and tribal members who understand that casino gaming alone is not the answer to viable long-term economic success.

Dean T.  Parisian attended the United States Military Academy at West Point, the University of Minnesota and Hamline University School of Law.  His undergraduate degrees were in  Education and Economics and he began his investment career in 1982.  He trained on Wall Street with Kidder, Peabody and Co. and joined Drexel Burnham Lambert, Inc. in LaJolla, California in 1984. Prior to the formation of Native American Advisors, Inc./Chippewa Partners in 1995 he was a Trust Officer at First Union Bank (now Wachovia) in Atlanta and managed his personal holdings with significant success prior to founding the firm in 1995. For over a decade Dean was a member of the Atlanta Society of Financial Analysts. He was the first Native American mutual fund advisor licensed with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission.

He is a member at the White Earth Reservation of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe.  You are encouraged to visit www.deanparisian.com to learn about Dean Parisian's commitment to encourage a culture of philanthropy which is vital for the growth of human capital in Native America and to help break the cycle of poverty, addiction, moral courage and the suffocating absence of fathers  and opportunity in Native communities.

Mr. Parisian, for over a decade was an arbitrator  for the New York Stock Exchange and the NASD (now FINRA).  He is a member of the Presidents Club at the University of Minnesota, the Georgia Ornithological Society and has been recognized in many financial publications such as Barrons, Investment Advisor magazine , Financial Planning magazine and the Atlanta Business Journal    His greatest accomplishments include raising two sons and 32 years of marriage. 

His philanthropic interest is in Native American education he has endowed a significant scholarship for Native Americans as the benefactor of the Dean T. Parisian Native American Student Scholarship at the University of Minnesota. 

The Parisian family enjoys outdoor pursuits at Pamelot,  their farm in Tennessee, at the Ghost Ranch, their retreat on the Yellowstone River in Montana and at Casa Tule, their winter home in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico.

Ask yourself….

What crime did Trump not do that others did with either impunity or without being arrested?

Here is a sample of 20.

1) Trump did not violate federal law, as did Hillary Clinton, by destroying federally subpoenaed emails and devices in order to hide evidence.

2) Trump did not violate federal law, as did Hillary Clinton, by sending classified government communications on her own, through an unsecured home-brewed server.

3) Trump did not violate federal law, as did Hillary Clinton, by hiring—through three paywalls—a foreign national, who is prohibited from working on presidential campaigns, to compile a dossier to smear her presidential opponent.

4) Trump did not violate federal campaign laws, as did Hillary Clinton, by hiding her payments (as “legal services”) to Christopher Steele through bookkeeping deceptions.

5) Trump did not, as did Bill Clinton, use a crony to search out a high-paying New York job for a paramour in order to influence her testimony before a special counsel.

6) Trump did not, as did Bill Clinton, receive a $500,000 “honorarium” for speaking in Moscow while his wife, our secretary of state, approved a longstanding and lucrative desire of the Kremlin for North American uranium to be sold to a Russian consortium.

7) Trump did not, as did Barack Obama, promise Vladimir Putin that he would be “flexible” on “missile defense” if during his own reelection bid Putin in return would give him “space”. That quid pro quo arrangement led to the U.S. abandonment of key joint missile defense systems with Poland and the Czech Republic, and, reciprocally, less than two years later a Russia invasion, mostly unopposed by the United States, of eastern Ukraine and the Crimea.

8) Trump did not boast publicly, as did Joe Biden, that he used U.S. foreign aid monies as leverage to have the Ukrainian government fire a prosecutor who may have been looking into the Biden family’s efforts to sell influence to corrupt Ukrainian interests.

9) Trump did not, as the Bidens did, set up a family consortium to leverage monies from Ukraine, Russia, and China, on their shared expectations that he might soon run for and be elected president and become compromised. Trump is not mentioned, as is Joe Biden, in family business communications as a recipient of a 10 percent commission on such payoffs.

10) Trump did not, unlike Joe Biden, remove presidential papers—without any authority to declassify them—and leave them scattered and unsecured in a garage and various residences and offices.

11) Trump did not, as did the FBI, wipe clean subpoenaed mobile phone records.

12) Trump did not, as did interim FBI head Andrew McCabe, admittedly lie under oath on four occasions to federal investigators.

13) Trump did not, as did CIA Director John Brennan, admittedly lie on two occasions while under oath to the U.S. Congress.

14) Trump did not, as did Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, admittedly lie on one occasion to the U.S. Congress.

15) Trump did not, as did James Comey, claim amnesia or ignorance 245 times while under oath before the U.S. Congress.

16) Trump did not, as did FBI Director James Comey, summarize a confidential private conversation with a president and then deliberately leak that classified memo to the media for his own agenda of appointing a special counsel to investigate the president—which turned out to be his friend Robert Mueller.

17) Trump did not, as did Robert Mueller, claim ignorance while under oath when asked about the Steele dossier and Fusion GPS, the catalysts for Mueller’s own investigation.

18) Trump did not, as did private citizen and former secretary of state John Kerry, meet clandestinely while out of office with Iranian officials to help them resist  current U.S. policy toward Iran—or what the Boston Globe characterized as “unusual shadow diplomacy” to “apply pressure on the Trump administration from the outside.”

19) Trump did not, as did the FBI and CIA, pay clandestine money to Twitter to monitor and smother news stories deemed unhelpful to their agendas.

20) Trump did not, as did then-Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, whip up a mob at the doors of the Supreme Court by threatening two sitting justices by name to intimidate them concerning an impending judicial ruling: “I want to tell you Gorsuch, I want to tell you Kavanaugh: You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you.” In subsequent months, mobs of protestors swarmed the private homes of these two named justices to influence their decisions, a federal crime that was ignored by Attorney General Merrick Garland, but not by a self-confessed, potential assassin of Justice Brett Kavanaugh who later turned up in the neighborhood.
