KILLDOZER: One Man’s Rampage Against The System

Have you heard of Killdozer Day? It’s June 4th.

And today just happens to be the 20th anniversary.

Do you know what Killdozer is?

Settle in and let me share a story with you.

It’s a story of 1 man who was pushed to his limits, an armored modified bulldozer, and his battle against the local bankers, town hall and the local newspaper.

Let’s just say this man had had enough.

So back in 2004, there was a man named Marvin Heemeyer.

He found himself in a heated zoning battle with Granby, a small town next door.

You see, they wanted to put up a concrete plant.

This blocked the road to his auto repair shop.

No problem.

Just create another short road to the shop. Problem solved!

Seems the powers that be didn’t want a road to his shop.

Customers will just have to carry their car on their backs if they wanted them fixed.

And on top of that, they decided to fine him.

Now he happened to have a Komatsu D355A bulldozer on his property.

His new problem was that it wasn’t armored.

So he spent two years fixing that and covering it with steel and concrete armor plating.

It was practically indestructible.

And once it was ready, he decided to drive it into town and let those that were against him know that he wasn’t happy with how poorly they were treating him.

What occurred next made headlines, and the media gave the story the nickname “Killdozer.” (No, he didn’t kill or hurt anyone.)

Denver Gazette reports:

One day in 2004, a man did major damage in the Colorado town of Granby while operating a homemade armored bulldozer capable of withstanding explosions and gunfire. Here’s a look at what happened, why it happened, and where the story stands today.

Before we take a look at the day the destruction went down, it’s important to consider a few events leading up to June 4th, 2004.

Marvin Heemeyer had been living in Grand Lake, Colorado for more than 10 years, owning an auto repair shop in nearby Granby. During this time, Heemeyer was involved in an ongoing zoning battle with the town – something that eventually became a factor in his attack.

To set the scene, Granby is the definition of “small-town” Colorado. The population hovers around only 2,000 full-time residents, but the area is a popular hub for outdoor recreation tourism year round. Located in Grand County, Granby is filled with rolling hills of green and is very close to Grand Lake, which is home to the western entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, as well as Colorado’s largest natural body of water.

The slogan for the Granby is “The Heart of Something Grand,” which is fitting, as the town can serve as a centralized jumping point for everything awesome in Grand County, from Winter Park Ski Resort to destinations like Devil’s Thumb Ranch.

Granted, some have also claimed that ‘small town politics’ have been present in the past, with this sometimes blamed as a factor in Heemeyer’s frustration due to an ongoing zoning battle with the town.

A fight between Heemeyer and the town had been lasting for years prior to his assault, with this conflict reaching a boiling point in 2001, when Heemeyer purchased a bulldozer for what’s still believed to be legitimate construction purposes meant to help solve his ongoing zoning issues. This resulted in another disagreement with the city, after which he converted his bulldozer into a killing machine – eventually dubbed the “Killdozer” by media.

For the next two years, Heemeyer spent time modifying his bulldozer in attempt to make it as impenetrable as possible. He installed armor plating on the sides – most of which was a foot or more thick and filled with a concrete mix for additional strength. It would go on to withstand a reported three explosive blasts and more than 200 rounds of ammunition, according to NBC News.

The armor wasn’t the only modification Heemeyer made. He also installed cameras protected by ballistic plastic that would allow whoever was inside the bulldozer to monitor their surroundings without adding gaps to the protective shield itself. Gun ports were also added to the bulldozer, allowing someone inside the bulldozer to shoot out of it without losing much of their guard.

These events leading up to that fateful June day show that Heemeyer’s attack was the result of a plan that was years in the making.

By the time June 4th, 2004 rolled around, Heemeyer was as ready as he would ever be to execute his assault on the Town of Granby.

Seemingly with the goal of causing as much destruction as possible, Heemeyer started his assault by bursting through the walls of his muffler shop, unveiling his deadly creation to the world. This muffler shop was where he is believed to have modified the machine.

From there, Heemeyer moved on to plow into a concrete business that he blamed for his zoning pain. He rammed the building again and again until the roof collapsed.

It’s around this point when the first gunfire coming from inside the tank was reported. Officers on the scene returned fire, but found their bullets did nothing to slow the mechanical beast.

Heemeyer was, however, quick to notice the return fire. At this point, he used the bulldozer to charge law enforcement on the scene. He began to destroy barriers and police vehicles that surrounded him.

One man, undersheriff Glen Trainor, was bold enough to clamor onto the machine as Heemeyer turned onto the main street of the town.

Unphased by the brazen attempt, Heemeyer plowed into the Granby Town Hall, ripping away much of the outer facade. He continued on to damage the building of an electric company where two former town board members were said to have been employed. He damaged a local construction company’s building by pushing one of their vehicles through their building’s walls. Heemeyer then returned to the town hall to do more damage before targeting the local bank.

Then, at that point, Heemeyer set his eyes on another building that represented a facet of the town that he despised – the local newspaper, Sky-Hi News, a media source he didn’t always agree with. According to this news source, which still operates today, a collision with their securely bolted printing press stopped his vehicle in its tracks. He quickly moved on to other targets.


There Is A Limit On How Long People Can Be Pushed….And That Limit Is Tipping

I’ve been planning to write this article for a while now….

It’s been swirling around in my head and I’ve been meaning to get it down on paper, and when I saw this post from my friend AwakenedOutlaw, I knew now was the time.

Because this is so spot on:

If you don’t instantly know what that means by the image, allow me to explain….

First, before I start I want to make clear at the onset of this article everything in this article is what I am seeing and experiencing right now as I interact with society.

I see it…

I feel it…

I bet you do too.

So I am reporting on what I see, hear and feel out there and I’m writing this more as a warning and a reminder to REMAIN CALM rather than any sort of call to action.

I’ll reiterate that at the end of my article too.

I’m writing this because I can feel tensions boiling and I fear we are extremely close to a breaking point.

So I’m writing this to say REMAIN CALM America.

Joe Biden has pushed this Nation to the brink, and they WANT the MAGA Patriots to melt-down and do something stupid.

Don’t let them.

Back to the image above.

That is Michael Douglas in the iconic movie Falling Down.

“Falling Down” is a 1993 drama film directed by Joel Schumacher, starring Michael Douglas as William Foster, a recently unemployed defense worker. The movie follows Foster as he experiences a mental breakdown during a heatwave and traffic jam in Los Angeles. Frustrated by the societal and personal challenges he faces, he embarks on a violent and chaotic journey across the city. His actions and encounters reflect his disillusionment with modern life. Meanwhile, a retiring police officer, played by Robert Duvall, tracks Foster’s increasingly erratic behavior, culminating in a tense and thought-provoking confrontation. The film explores themes of alienation, anger, and societal decay.

I remember seeing this movie when it first came out.

I must have been a teenager if I remember right.

And I remember not really getting it.

What is this guy so angry about?

But now?

40 years later?

After 4 years of absolute misery and hell unleashed on America by the Biden Regime?

Now I get it.

No, I’m not on the verge of going all Michael Douglas on the world.  Not at all.

I’m calm, cool and extremely collected.  Calm as a cucumber baby!

But I can just feel the tension out there from people in ordinary, every day life.

Things that 5 years ago we would just shake off are rattling people because they are becoming the proverbial “last straw” that is breaking people’s backs.

Inflation at record highs….

You can barely afford to buy even the basics at the grocery store….

Wages are down, many people now work 2-3 jobs just to stay afloat — and they all suck.

All the life and all the humor and all the fun has been sucked out of life.

They even ruined comedy, have you noticed that?

That’s not just my opinion, that’s Jerry Seinfeld who told you that recently:

Jerry Seinfeld Admits It: The “Extreme Left” Has Ruined Comedy

So 10 years ago when you had a bad day at least you could come home, "veg out", and throw on a funny sitcom.

Can't do that now, they literally don't exist!

They LITERALLY did not greenlight one single new sitcom this year on any major TV network.

Not a single one.


Because "woke-ism" has ruined comedy.

Everyone is too afraid to write a joke anymore, and the new younger generation that was raised on being "woke" physically doesn't know how to write comedy.

Because they are devoid of humor.

Devoid of humanity.

A never-ending stream of simply being offended by everyone and everything.

So I fear we are becoming a nation of Michael Douglas's from Falling Down....a powder keg ready to blow.


Help is on the way....

Trump is back in November.

We will right this ship.

But we do it peacefully, lawfully and PATRIOTICALLY!

I hear you America.

I feel it.

I sense it.

Hold on.

Hang in there.

Let Michael Douglas blow off some steam in a movie and live vicariously, but in real life you stay CALM and PEACEFUL.

We will ride this thing out and we will take back America.

We WILL Make America Great Again, once again.

And now for a message I have printed no less than a dozen times here on this website.


Because I feel it's that important.

Keep reading:

IMPORTANT REMINDER: Stay Calm, We Do NOT Support Calls For Violence

As President Trump has just been unfairly and Unconstitutionally impeached twice and indicted four times, persecuted and prosecuted, attacked to no seems like a very good time for me to remind you of this: we do NOT support violence or calls for violence.

Keep your calm.

Keep your cool.

And keep your head on a swivel, because I'm starting to think they might try to stage another J6 soon.

You know, Team Khaki Pants.

So I want to be as clear as I can: we do not support violence.

We do support your Constitutionally-protected right to protest and assemble (seems like I've read something about that somewhere, maybe in the First Amendment?) but we must do so peacefully and lawfully.

So please allow me to reiterate this FULL Public Service Announcement...

I think you're going to like this one and I'd sure love to hear from you in the comments after you read it.

Our mission here at WLTReport is to research and print the truth, wherever we may find it.

The truth the MSM likes to ignore...

The truth the MSM likes to cover up...

The truth the MSM likes to twist.

We correct the record and just like a lion, we set truth free because it can defend itself.

So that's our mission.

NOTE: our mission does not and never has been to call for violence or to support violence.  

You may think it is absurd I even have to print that, and I would agree...

Of course, we are the people who constantly decried and called out all the violence, looting and burning down of cities during the summer of 2020.

That kind of behavior has NO PLACE in America.

So we want to be absolutely clear where we stand.

We also stand for the Constitution.

We stand for free and fair elections.

We stand for truth and justice.

Oh, and let me also clear this up...

While we stand for peace, justice and truth, here's what the Democrats stand for -- in their own words:

"Fight Like Hell" -- Democrats EXPOSED In Their Own Words

If President Trump can be impeached and indicted and persecuted and prosecuted over something as innocuous as saying "Fight like Hell", then perhaps it's time we look at the Dems?

Take a look at their own words?

Big thanks to my man Kyle Becker for posting this.

Exactly right sir!

If your argument is that Trump incited the Capitol riots because he said "fight like hell," you might want to watch this.

Be sure to be sitting down, because it will blow your mind.


That all sounds WILDLY violent to me, but that's not how we roll here.

Ok, so I hope we cleared that up, now you know where both camps stand.

One wildly violent, one peaceful.

One wants destruction, one wants peace, justice, truth and law & order.

You know which is which.

So in case there was any confusion or question out there, I hope this clears it up!

Your humble correspondent at your service!

BUT....A DISCLAIMER: I cannot be responsible for what God's Angel Army may choose to do.

Speaking of the Bible, there is a verse that says "As for me and my house..."

So that's what I can speak for -- Me (Noah) and my house (WLTReport).

I can't speak for God's Angel Army or what they may choose to do.

They kind of have a mind of their own and they don't tend listen much to what man wants to do.

What am I talking about?

Just this...

Just a little story taken right out of 2 Kings Chapter 6 from the Bible.

Do you know that story?

Perhaps you need to hear it right now.

I'll summarize...

Elisha is trapped in Dothan.

The King of Aram surrounded the city and Elisha's assistant panics thinking all is lost.  He thinks they have no way out.

And then Elisha says those famous words: "Those who are with us are more than those who are with them."

To the person who is only looking in the physical, that looked to be 100% wrong.

To the people who are looking right now and thinking "nothing has ever happened", they think the all prayer and prophecies have been completely wrong.

But Elisha was looking in the spiritual world and he could see that although King Aram's armies were surrounding the city, there were actually Hosts Upon Hosts of Heavenly Angels surrounding the King.  Completely outmatched.  Horses and chariots of fire ridden by Angels filled the hills around the King's army!

And that, my friends, is where I believe we stand at this very moment.

I can see it, can you?

Read it here, I've bolded my favorite part:

Now the king of Aram was at war with Israel. After conferring with his officers, he said, “I will set up my camp in such and such a place.”

The man of God sent word to the king of Israel: “Beware of passing that place, because the Arameans are going down there.” 10 So the king of Israel checked on the place indicated by the man of God. Time and again Elisha warned the king, so that he was on his guard in such places.

11 This enraged the king of Aram. He summoned his officers and demanded of them, “Tell me! Which of us is on the side of the king of Israel?”

12 “None of us, my lord the king,” said one of his officers, “but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the very words you speak in your bedroom.”

13 “Go, find out where he is,” the king ordered, “so I can send men and capture him.” The report came back: “He is in Dothan.” 14 Then he sent horses and chariots and a strong force there. They went by night and surrounded the city.

15 When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?” the servant asked.

16 “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”

17 And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

18 As the enemy came down toward him, Elisha prayed to the Lord, “Strike this army with blindness.” So he struck them with blindness, as Elisha had asked.

19 Elisha told them, “This is not the road and this is not the city. Follow me, and I will lead you to the man you are looking for.” And he led them to Samaria.

20 After they entered the city, Elisha said, “Lord, open the eyes of these men so they can see.” Then the Lord opened their eyes and they looked, and there they were, inside Samaria.

21 When the king of Israel saw them, he asked Elisha, “Shall I kill them, my father? Shall I kill them?”

22 “Do not kill them,” he answered. “Would you kill those you have captured with your own sword or bow? Set food and water before them so that they may eat and drink and then go back to their master.” 23 So he prepared a great feast for them, and after they had finished eating and drinking, he sent them away, and they returned to their master. So the bands from Aram stopped raiding Israel’s territory.

So there you go.

As for me and my house, we stand for truth, justice, the Constitution, freedom, liberty, free and fair elections, the American dream, life, liberty and the pursuit of justice...

...and we do not stand for, or call for, violence.  Period.

But as for the angels I see surrounding this country on its metaphorical hillsides -- I do not speak for them. 😊
