A river flows to the source of all of us!
Engineering a new lifestyle!
“Until we find the source of the seed in all of us we will forever surrender the source of Us”
My lifestyle has changed. So has yours. I am ok with that because I love to adapt to new environments. I always have. I guess this is one reason I have never had just one career.
I have been able to be involved in technology, intelligence, agriculture, metal design, entertainment, production, and travel.
I have always had to adapt and wear a different hat. In a funny way, having to wear different hats in so many different and diverse environments I have always been able to keep my true sense of me and who I am at my core. At least I think I have.
With my current work, I have decided to adapt my lifestyle into a new form of awareness and action. Most of you know that I went on harvest and wrote the “Harvest of Deception.” This has led me to take on the new #BeefInitiative. I have taken a step back and have decided to re-visit my homeland, the great state, and the Republic of Texas.
In this article, I will begin to outline how I plan to do it and how I will turn my home into my newfound paradise. It will be of exploration, adventure, new discoveries, and turning over old treasures that have been buried for a period of time.
I am going to become the river that runs through it. I am going to bring a sense of innocence and yearning to know more. I will not be stifled and I will do it with a sense of empowerment that only I know-how. I ask you to come along for the ride.
My Lifestyle is #FoodIntellignece and the #BeefInitiative
What do I mean and what is this going to involve? It means that I am diving deep into my heritage. I see a window of opportunity and I am going all in. I will explain a little bit about the cattle industry in Texas, where it came from, and how it has evolved. The dangers ahead and where I see it going and how it can become the foundation to a new lifestyle in many of our lives.
Not just because we should be consuming more pure animal protein but because you can adopt a new way of thinking and you can design new destinations and also new adventures that have been there the whole time.

Heritage and Tradition
The Roots of a Texas Ranching Tradition
The early roots of Texas ranching began with colonial conquest. In 1493, Christopher Columbus made his second voyage to the island of Hispaniola. He brought with him the first Spanish cattle and the precursors of the famed Texas longhorn.
Through the 16th and 17th centuries, cattle ranching continued to spread north
through Spanish Mexico and into the land now known as Texas. The first cattle raising in Texas appeared in the Rio Grande Valley. By 1680, there were several thousand cattle recorded in the El Paso region. The earliest ranches were those of Spanish missionaries. By the mid-18th century, these were joined by competing private ranches. Vaqueros were the first cowhands on these early ranches. Most vaqueros were from lower castas — socio-racial classes used by the Spanish government — like mestizo (of American Indian and Spanish ancestry), mulatto (of Spanish and African ancestry), American Indian, or African. They worked as independent contractors, owning their own horses, saddles, and ropes but remaining unbound to a hacienda or a patron unless they chose to be.
The Spanish crown saw an opportunity in the growing number of cattle in the region. In 1778, the crown imposed the contentious Fondo de Mestenos (Mustang Tax) on all unbranded cattle and horses. Cattle drives out of Texas also began at this time, mostly to provide military rations of beef. Written records from 1779 suggest that cattle were driven to Louisiana to feed Spanish soldiers fighting against the British in the American Revolution. The arrival of the cattle remains unconfirmed, but it would have been the first-ever drive out of Texas.
The Mustang Tax was revoked in 1795, and drives spread more rapidly to new markets. As a result, there was a major decline in cattle by the turn of the century. This was made worse by the turmoil of the Mexican War of Independence beginning in 1810. By the end of the war in 1821, the Spanish ranching economy had effectively dissolved. The war’s end also saw the establishment of the Austin Colony, led by Stephen F. Austin. Anglo-American settlers were attracted by the availability of newly “empty” land for planting and cattle ranching. Over time, their eastern cattle were bred with Spanish cattle, and the Texas Longhorn was born.
By the 1830s, settlers had blended eastern ranching techniques with those of their Spanish-Mexican predecessors. Cattle and beef were abundant in the Colony. Over the next decade, the upheaval of the Texas Revolution and Mexican-American War left large quantities of land and cattle abandoned by Mexican ranchers. American settlers began to spread into arid northern and western Texas, and the longhorn went with them. Through the ‘40s and ‘50s, the Texas ranching economy took off.
Full article here on Texas cattle and ranching I will build on the history more next week.
Looking over my shoulder and forging ahead
I have written about my boots-on-the-ground activities and the research I have been able to do by scraping the internet. I have several tools that I use to obtain a lot of my information. I do not use Google Search or most of the other search engines. I was able to gain this skill when I worked in the telecom intelligence labs. Most of the time I have been able to build an algorithm of things to come by putting different pieces of information from around the globe into a funnel of dialogue that begins to tell a story and of plans that have been laid out and are being activated. Most of these plans and initiatives that are released onto society do so while we are distracted by the MSM news narrative of the day. The planners know this and play a game with us common folk. By the time the plan has been activated, it becomes a sense of shock to most people and as they spend their social time discussing and arguing about it, the planners are into a new phase of their plan. This is happening now with the Covid narrative and what, in the long run, are the true plans.
You can read more about current developments here. The Source.
I plan to do the same. I am going to turn #FootIntelligence into a counter punch and I will do it with the #BeefInitiative.
It will be my new lifestyle based on past traditions, Texas heritage, and the evolution of where I see the state of Texas going. My lifestyle will include the following:
-It will be rugged
-Each day will have new discoveries
-It will be and give a sense of empowerment never experienced by me nor others.
#FoodIntelligence will be my leverage. I hope you use it as your fulcrum.
#Bitcoin is the pathway to a decentralized nutrition delivery system that is and will be the #BeefInitiative.
A Texas State of Mind
In the last 18 months, I have had to look deep inside of who I am and I have had the chance to re-visit my home. I have always been one of wanderlust and have had a yearning to see the world and discover new places, peoples, and things, dive into cultures unknown and music unheard.
This opportunity is right in front of all of us. It is time to re-discover where you come from. I will be re-discovering my state in a new way with a new state of mind. I will use my tools and skillsets to put my boots on the ground. I will be traveling the back roads, I will be looking people in the eyes and I will be shaking their hands. I will learn about the history of their ranches, their involvement in the cattle industry, and how they see us moving forward.
I will also be documenting all of it, I will be writing about it every week. I will take pictures and I will give you information that will allow you to start mining your own protein. This will become our #CitaldelOfTheMind that each and every one of us wants to create. We are builders, we are dreamers, we set the standard and most of us know deep down inside that most of the world will be slow to adopt and a good majority of people will never understand.
That is ok with me.
This is not a numbers game, this is a movement of truth and quality, not quantity. I believe we all are tired of the quantity game of statistics and numbers that chase the never-ending devaluation of our lives and of our spirit.
I will meet some wonderful people and I am going to do my best to let you hear their stories. I will also piss some people off. I am ok with this as well. I am getting to the Source of the Seed and I don’t give a shit if I step on toes that compromise a fiat lifestyle nor a fiat mindset.
Just this past week, I approached a feedlot rancher. At first, he was interested in my story and my observations. After a while, his gaze turned suspect. By the time I finished providing my research he asked that I not contact him again and to stay away from his feedlot.
Our beef comes from many different sources. I will be the first to admit that it is compromised in many ways. There are guys out there who are slaves to #MPAC (RootCause) and they have no escape clause, nor do they want to hear from a guy like me.
To put it bluntly, they are going to hate me and they will try to shut me up.
Too bad, this is my lifestyle - my career is my lifestyle - my lifestyle is my career.
A River Runs Through Texas
Many Rivers run through Texas. Starting with the Canadian and all the way down to the Rio Grande. Texas is a source of water and pathways most of the world does not fully understand. As the rivers flow so will my travels. I will be providing you with several different independent cattle ranchers and food producers each week. I have not met most of these people in person but I have done research on them. I will provide a small story about them and hopefully, they will be close in proximity to you and your family where you can leverage them to provide pure animal protein to your mind, body, and spirit.
This week I am going to start with the following.
A little about K & C in their own words:
Hi! We’re Cole & Kelsey Bolton. We take pride in our slogan “Austin Bred and Fed” in that we are one of the few ranches that can truly say we raise cattle in Capitol City. I’m a 3rd generation cattle rancher, having grown up on a cattle feed yard in East Texas, and Kelsey is a 2nd generation rancher, born and raised in the Austin area.
Our ranch consists of Black Angus and Red Angus bloodlines. We focus heavily on the best genetics because the pedigree controls 45% of the marbling in the animal. Our beef is pasture-raised, with no antibiotics and no growth hormones. Studies have shown that the natural environment that cattle are born in positively impacts the meat quality. We do grain finish our cattle at the ranch the last 90 days before slaughter for several purposes: marbling, efficiency, and consistency. Our ration is a culmination of grains all grown locally in Central Texas and non-GMO. We guarantee our beef to grade Choice or Prime.
Our pigs are pasture-raised and live in a natural environment where they can lay in the mud, play in the sun, or relax in the shade. Being good stewards of the land is important and we hope to be able to spread our vision and continue to grow within the industry.
They are serving and sourcing in the Austin and Texas Hill Country region. I will be meeting them in person on the first of November when I make a trip down to Austin to meet Marty Bent and we sit down to talk about #FoodIntelligence and the #TxBeefIntiative. Check out Marty’s podcast here. I am sure most of you already listen on a daily basis.
As most of you know the Colorado River flows through the middle of Texas and helps create this awesome backdrop to so many new innovations going on in the capital city. Austin at one time was called “Waterloo.”
Austin has been my home for half my life and I miss it on a daily basis.
Also, I found these guys and they are out close to Hondo, Texas. Deep in the heart of the Texas Hill Country.
They have a great story and way of doing business:
About Grassfield Farms

How are you going to mine your protein?
Take a minute to reflect on your lifestyle and how you can start bringing #FoodIntelligence into your lifestyle and make your lifestyle your #FoodIntelligence.
This has nothing to do with dieting, this has nothing to do with legacy nutrition larping plans. This has everything to do with building a legacy based on tradition, heritage, strategy, future analysis, and inner engineering.
I can not emphasize enough that being aware of the food industry and what their plans are will be crucial from this time forward. You can ignore it and have your taste buds satisfied until the cow comes home and metabolic failure shows its ugly head or you can begin to start thinking and acting in a different way. The #TxBeefInitiative has a foundation and we are moving forward. We have team players and you will begin to start hearing from them and understanding our game plan and how we are moving forward.
I spoke of a tool kit that we are working on right now, I will be providing a general outline when I am in Austin on the first of November so stay tuned.
Below is a little feedback from Lili. She will be providing a report in every piece I write so pay attention and begin to educate yourself.
Bitcoin is digitized freedom, sovereignty, and autonomy. We chose bitcoin because we understand where the world is headed; fiat is dying. It’s not a coincidence that many bitcoiners also maintain a healthy lifestyle; nourishing your body and brain leads to better decision making (like deciding to buy bitcoin vs holding fiat).
Currently, everything we want is on demand. The store shelves are full. The meat and poultry refrigerators are full. But what if our access to quality food products, specifically protein, comes under attack? Spoiler: it already has. Governments, corporations, and private organizations are engineering food shortages and pushing the narrative of a “dark winter” and supply chain problems.
More bitcoiners need to start thinking about food intelligence because sovereignty starts at the physiological level, without a healthy mind and body, riches are meaningless. It’s time for us to source our protein locally from honest suppliers, not corporate sellers.
Moving forward my intelligence reports will come out Sunday evening at 6 pm.
Lifestyle and the Texas Beef Initiative will be Thursday afternoons. I hope to catch some of you before the weekend kicks off and you are able to organize a road trip somewhere along a Texas backroad so you can see the great state, mine your own protein and follow a river to your true source.
I love all of you and I can’t wait to meet some of you in person in the coming months. Stay tuned and stay engaged, and by all means eat a freakin grass-fed steak!
