Be back very soon.

Haven't blogged much lately, but we've been sort of "winterizing" the property lately, and have a small out of town vacation this weekend.

Be back shortly.

Hurricane Michael is close.

When Michael was expected to hit us as a Category 1 storm, I was thinking "this will be a good test run for our preps".

Now it's only a few hours away and it's a Category 4. So this isn't just a test, it's what we actually primarily prepare for as a family.

It's all fun and games to prepare for the eventually economic downfall and the next civil war and all that grandiose crap, but it's much more important to prepare for the things you KNOW will happen, because they happen all the time.

For my family, that's a hurricane.

Granted, we haven't been hit since Ivan and Dennis in 2004 and 2005, but that's an anomaly to have such a long break. What it means is that our area has a whole lot of young adults who weren't old enough to help with the preparations or the cleanup after Ivan and Dennis, and therefore didn't get to learn from experience how to deal with it.

A whole lot of young people (and older ones who simply forgot over the last 13 years or so) are about to get a hard lesson on the dangers of normalcy bias.

As for us, our windows are boarded up, water is stored, food is stored, etc. Time for Michael to show us where are gaps are.

Hopefully in not too harsh of a manner.

"Letter to the CivNats" from ZMan.

Letter to the CivNats will get you up to speed on some of the reasons why the "right" in the US has so far been unable to counter the left on a lot of fronts.

If Trump is President, the republicans have the House and Senate and the SCOTUS generally leans right, and the republicans have most of the Governor seats and most of the state legislatures... Then why is the decimated democrat party such a massive force in the US, so powerful that they can still call the shots on so many things, even to the point of stifling wall funding, preventing the total dismantling of 0bamacare, shutting down all efforts to pursue national reciprocity for gun rights, forcing a seventh FBI investigation on Kavanaugh, keeping Hillary out of prison, etc.

It's because the furthest the "right" in America is willing to go is Civic Nationalism. CivNat is not strong enough to combat the left, in fact, CivNat is often the tool of the left.

Musings about being a "law abiding citizen".

Even if you're not breaking the law, the law still has ways of breaking you if "they" don't like what you're doing.

Even a law abiding man can find himself on the wrong of the line, because it's a line that never stops moving.

Ignorance of the law is no defense for breaking the law, right? That means you're responsible for knowing the law, right? Yeah, try quoting the law to the next cop that gets something wrong, and let me know how you like those additional charges he drops on you.

My thoughts on the Kavanaugh circus.

So many people out there asking how the democrats can bring themselves to smear a good man based on such a transparently false set of accusations.

Anyone who asks that question, despite all of the behavior that we've seen from the left over the last ten years, has utterly failed to grasp the nature of the people that we call "liberal", but are better described as being "post-modernists".

Those of you who fail to understand them will say "they're smearing an innocent man", and imagine them all sitting in some smoke-filled room talking amongst themselves and planning, and a few of them remorsefully acknowledge that while Kavanaugh may be an innocent man, his reputation must unfortunately be attacked for the good of the nation, in order to prevent Trump from achieving another nomination to SCOTUS before the democrats have a shot to take the senate in November.

But that's not what is going on. Whether he is guilty of a sex crime is irrelevant to them. They don't see him as a good man. They don't see him as being innocent of any specific crime. They view him as a "deplorable". They seem him as "irredeemable". He has indeed committed a crime in their eyes, a deplorable crime so heinous that he can not redeem himself. They see him as a conservative and as a white male. Those traits are CRIMINAL ACTS in the mind of a post-modernist. The destruction of his reputation, the stress on his family, the demand for a drawn out investigation, these are all justifiable actions because he has committed the unpardonable sins of being a white, conservative Christian male, and therefore all actions taken against him are warranted. All actions and punishments given to Kavanaugh are warranted.

This is how the left plays the game today. This is how an insurrection is conducted.

What happens between now and January are pivotal in our nation's history, and make no mistake that the post-modernists are pushing as hard as they can for a shooting war. That is no exaggeration.

The Ultimate Inversion

"We are fast approaching the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission."

"If, before undertaking some action, you must obtain the permission of society, you are not free, whether such permission is granted to you or not. Only a slave acts on permission. A permission is not a right."

The Non nationalist, nationalists

Call it what you will civic nationalism, nationalism lite, fat free nationalism but the new conservative civic nationalism is starting to wear thin.
Personally I have never been opposed to civic nationalism and still hope some form of it can work.
Many Americans can relate to civic nationalism because we all have close non white friends, co workers and people we have shared deep bonds with in military experience or in difficult situations for us who work in EMS ect.
I feel that there are many non European descended Americans who have earned their place in the USA and are just as much a part of the USA than anyone else but so often I find civic nationalists extremely apathetic to the existence of western culture and identity or European cultural identity.
Ben Shapiro for example is someone who slanders ethnic nationalism and jumps to the Nazi card quicker than a antifa member at a conservative rally.
However Shapiro is keen on promoting Jewish cultural heritage and preservation within Israel and globally. Interesting how that works.
The majority of the popular conservatives follow this stance from Milo to Alex Jones and the politically ambiguous Jordan Peterson who tells the masses at his lectures that nationalism is " senseless and idiotic! feeling pride in a race or nation is asinine"  However Peterson has expressed his support for the preservation of the first nations of Canada and their "proud culture" repetitively.
Far too often we see racial nationalism devolve into thuggish, primitive and anti intellectual authoritarianism so rightfully so there are people with an obversion to it but does that mean that ethno nationalism is inherently evil and destructive?
When I was in Iraq I spent time with the Yazidi community many of whom have a great sense of ethno nationalism but I had never encountered a more kind and gentle people who treated me with nothing but love and kindness.
When I was visiting an Assyrian town in Iraq I expressed my want to stay with them as they continued their fight against ISIS and I was told very politely by a local soldier/ intellectual in the community that " we need to fight for ourselves and this community is for Assyrians only"  However I was welcomed into his community several times and I was treated very well by the people.
I lived with Iraqi Armenians who were also very ethno nationalist but still to this day I am referred to as a brother to the leaders and people of one of the Armenian village of northern Iraq.
My point to this is yes we can be nationalists both civic and ethnic nationalists and we can temper our nationalism with rational thought, intellectualism and kindness.
We can accept and help Americans of all creeds and nations beyond our borders.
I am not rejecting civic nationalism but I am rejecting the cultural, racial and ethnic relativists that see western society as nothing more than a capitalist haven of wealth and commercialism.
Their bias and hypocrisy says it all.

The Wrath of the Awakened Saxon

It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy -- willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the Saxon began to hate.

Their voices were even and low.
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd.
It was not taught by the state.
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not suddently bred.
It will not swiftly abate.
Through the chilled years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate.

-Rudyard Kipling

The most important link Samuel Culper ever dropped.

Here it is.

Your one stop shop for building and maintain an intelligence collection and analysis cell, something you will really wish you had when our version of Sarajevo circa 1994 comes around.

The US needs a Nationalist Party.

I really wish the US had other parties that were not held at a disadvantage. Europe has dozens of parties in their countries that are all playing on an even field, but in the US, we have only two and the rest are all handicapped by laws (that the Rs and Ds passed) that restrict the amount of attention and funding they receive, and sometimes even block them from ballots completely just because they didn't raise the right amount of money.

You have nationalist parties rising up all over Europe, such as "Alternative for Germany", Jobbik and "Golden Dawn" in an effort to protect their cultures from the majority parties that seek to dilute and replace the European cultures, but in the US, any party that isn't Republican or Democrat is called "fringe" and marginalized and kept off the playing field altogether.

What we need is a good, strong, liberty based American Nationalist party that will preserve our culture of European heritage and Western Civilization. The Republicans and Democrats are both against that.

I don't know if we have any chance for that though. The rules are rigged against us and we insist on playing within that set of rules, even as those rules are wielded against us like a weapon. Heck, most "conservatives" actually recoil at the word "nationalist". We were all raised in a school system that taught us that nationalism is a bad thing, a thing that only "Nazis" support.

We must overcome this inclination to live inside the box that our enemies have put us in, to play within a set of rules that are specifically designed to bring about our defeat.

To paraphrase a friend: "You can't win with Napoleonic tactics in the Arghandab Valley, friend."
