Short list to get you ahead of the game.

It's been said that simply coming to the realization that you need to prep will put you ahead of 90% of the population. That's probably true, or at least the sentiment behind the saying is true, even if the actual stat is not. But being ahead of 90% of the population just because you know you should prep isn't necessarily good enough. You have to put that into action.

When I started this blog a few years back, most of my posts we based on helping readers develop a beginner's "list of lists", something that the average person could find and afford to get them ready for disasters.

While the items on that list are easy to find and generally affordable, the list itself is still a bit long. So I am going to give you a shorter list, a list that is NOT meant to be comprehensive or get you through the end of the world... But you can consider it a part of that "get ahead of 90% of the population" idea. You'll need to KNOW that you should prep, but you'll also need these things.

I will go down the line according to the "SWFS-CIMT" model.

Shelter - You need a stable place to stay in an area that itself is not a disaster already. Pretty abundant in the US.

Water - A Sawyer Mini Filter will allow you to drink almost any water source. Get one for every member of the family, and maybe an extra or two. A Berkey water system is nice to have also. If you want to store water as well, use this rule: One gallon of water per person, per day. Water in jugs at Walmart is cheap.

Food - I have demonstrated already that storing rice and beans is cheap and easy. Look at this post to see my storage of pinto beans. You can use the exact same process for white rice and lentils. You can use the same process for salt and sugar, as long as you substitute moisture absorbers for oxygen absorbers. Don't put oxygen absorbers in salt or sugar. Mountain House #10 cans are great as well.

Security - This is where you get the guns. Look here and here and pick out what sounds good to you. Don't forget ammo, mags and TRAINING. This general security list will help too.

Communications - It's much more important to listen than to transmit, so I'm just going to keep it simple. The GP-5 SSB shortwave radio and the Uniden Home Patrol II police scanner will allow you to listen in on any relevant broadcasts you need to. A set of two-way radios from Cobra or Midland will allow you to talk with group members at short distances. Cell phones and chargers are obviously good to keep.

Intelligence - In the military, intelligence drives the mission. In the prepping world, information needs to drive your actions and decisions. Building your "all-source collection element", or ACE, is key to gathering intelligence. Take a look at this guide to get started on your own ACE.

Medical - You need a first aid kit and some additional medical supplies. Take a look here and get started filling out your medical supply list.

Transportation - Lastly, you need to be able to get from point A to point B, and you need to have adequate tools to maintain that vehicle. You'll need more than a Prius. Here is a pretty basic list to help you maintain your vehicle. Cars are ok. Trucks and Jeeps are usually better. It all depends on your terrain and needs, though.

I may very well end up with commenters adding their 2¢ (which is always welcome) on which things to add to this list. This list is not made to be the end all be all, nor is it nearly adequate to you through TEOTWAWKI. It's a barebones list that I am making for the people who have heard the phrase "if you realize you need to prep, you're already ahead of 90% of the population", and are wondering if that's really true. Yes it is, but only partially. You need some tools and some knowledge. So with that, I'll also leave you with this list of books to grab...

Short wisdom, fighting vs violence.

Knowing how to fight is one thing. Having the tools to fight with is another. Knowing how to be violent is entirely different. If you don't have all three, you're missing a piece of the puzzle.

ISIS founder and leader believed to be dead

Al Baghdadi has most likely been killed in one of the latest Russian air strikes. There have been many false reports on his death in the past so authorities are making sure this time around before making it official.

This is a true cause for celebration, but the left wing maniacs only celebrate when they think Trump is going to be impeached or when conservatives are shot or attacked. Little credit for this victory can go to the US, sadly. Russian forces, Kurdish forces, Syrian military, Syriac and Assyrian defense forces deserve the majority of the credit.

Most Americans wanted to be a part of the fight against ISIS, but we were denied. To the US troops and volunteers who did fight against ISIS, I salute you.

Looking forward to ISIS being wiped out from the borders of Syria and Iraq within the year, God willing.

15,000 views.

Thanks to the readers and commenters who have provided this blog with 15,000 views. I appreciate the time you've all taken to read my content.

Message to Fathers and Future Fathers.

Happy Father's Day. Enjoy the day with family and relax, but take some time to think, really think, about what today is and what it's for. It's not just a day for your kids to make things for you or take you out to dinner or buy you something nice. Those things are great, but if you understand what today is, then you understand that today isn't just your day. It's a day where you remember and reaffirm your role and responsibility to your family

Remember your role as the head of the house and family. For those who do not read this with an adult level of understanding, I will be nice and caveat this statement: Being the head of the house and family does not mean you get to swagger around and boss around your wife and kids, it doesn't mean all decisions are made by you, it doesn't mean your family is there to serve you (Your role as a leader demands that it is YOU who serves) it doesn't even mean  that your name is on every title of every car or loan or credit card. It means that when hardship comes, when help is needed, when strength (moral, personal, cultural, physical) is needed, you are available and able. When a hard decision is required, you take that burden from your family and make it your burden. You will not always be right, but you must have the courage and ability to shoulder that. Your house and family are a ship, and while you will not always dictate how much sail to use, or how fast to go, or how to run the deck, you are the one at the wheel steering in a morally sound direction. Do not be that dad you see in the commercials or in the TV shows, that inept, childish, immature oaf with the stupid looking grin on his face when his wife catches him acting like a toddler or says to the kids "Daddy did a lot of stupid things before he met Mommy".

Remember your role as the defender. The world is not safe at all times. No matter where you live or how you're set up up, you and your family are not always going to be safe from harm or coercion. You don't have to be the strongest or fastest or be a black belt in any martial art. However, you SHOULD have the knowledge and ability to stand courageously between your family and whatever or whomever means to do them harm, whether that harm is in the form of a burglar breaking in, a mugger pulling a knife, a drunk grabbing your wife's butt or a slick salesman trying to rip off your 16 year old at the dealership. In those situations, you must have a resolute mindset and have conviction in your purpose. Getting punched doesn't really hurt that bad, and a man is nothing to be afraid of. A father protecting his family is a different animal. If you lack something in this regard, send me a PM, and I'll help you out. And yes, I will be nice. I will actually help you. And no, I will not try to make you carry a weapon. Again, this is not about martial arts or guns (I do love my guns). It's about a resolute mindset and the courage that comes with full conviction.

Remember your role as the provider. I know that in 2017, not every household pays it's bills and buys the food with the paycheck of the man. I get that, and that's fine. If your wife is a full-time pharmacist and you are a part-time mechanic, I understand there is going to be a difference in dollars. If your wife has a master's in engineering at MIT and you've got a bachelor's from the school of hard knocks, the mortgage might come out of a check with her name on it. I get it, but the role of provider does not always require a paycheck. The role of provider can include that, but it also includes the ability to steer your family out of hardship when a paycheck (regardless of who makes it) isn't quite enough. It includes the ability to obtain whatever resources your family requires for basic survival, or PRODUCE those resources otherwise. This includes shelter, water, food and security at the most basic level. Those things might require a paycheck, but they also require more than that. Also, when your wife does the thing that wives do, which is to get pregnant, the man needs to become even more of a provider. Regardless of the "advancement" of society, the man must always maintain his ability to provide. The woman should not always have to maintain that ability to provide forever. Women have other natural roles, and I really don't give a damn if anyone thinks that is sexist.

Remember your role as the loving father. Make time to spend with family. Your kids are only little once. Sometimes you'll have to be stern, sometimes you'll have to be hard and cold and logical, sometimes you'll have to be the disciplinarian or authoritative presence, but no one in your family should ever have an ounce of doubt that you love them. You will not be perfect, but perfection is not required. I most certainly am NOT speaking from a pedestal of perfection. I am certainly not pontificating from a position of moral authority. I, like you all, have and will make mistakes. Perfection is not required. Love is what is required. The outside of you might sometimes need to be hard, but the inside softness must be shown on the outside sometimes. And your family must know that the hard exterior (In times of protection from harm, or discipline for kids, or hard decision-making) is a product of a soft, loving interior. When we go to a hard job as an insulator in a power plant or running heavy machines at a newspaper company, when we go to war in a far away land or walk a cop's beat in the ghetto, we maintain that hard exterior with a soft interior of love for our families.

A father's roles are numerous and I can't possibly cover them all, but these are a start. The importance of a man fulfilling his roles appropriately in the home is constantly demeaned and diminished in today's society. I have my thoughts on why this is happening but I'm not going to get into that right now. Resist this. We are seeing the terrible effects of fatherless homes on our society and culture everyday. Whether you grew up with a father fulfilling his roles or not, it is imperitive that you, as a father or future father, learn your roles and how to fulfill them, and that you do so when the time comes.

Happy Father's Day. It's called Father's Day, but it's not just about you (us). Remember your roles today.

D.C. Shooting, Original Story.

Here is an original story of the Washington D.C. shooting that left Representative Scalise in "critical condition".

The "leadership" of the left (Democrat politicians like Tim Kaine, Hollyweird celebrities like Kathy Griffin, fake news anchors like Don Lemon, "clergy" like Al Sharpton) have encouraged their followers to "disrupt" and "fight in the streets", "get in trouble" and "resist". These statements whether meant literally or not, have been taken quite literally. All over the country we have riots and violence committed against anyone who supported Trump or identifies as "conservative". We see mock acts of violence (a play in Central Park depicts Trump's assassination, while Kathy Griffin poses with a fake severed Trump head) progressing to real violence, as you can see in the Washington Post story I linked. There are also acts of violence against people just for displaying MAGA paraphernalia.

Drudge Report, the most influential news aggregate site in the world, is posting multiple stories of media members reporting that we are on the brink of a "civil war" between the ideological "left" and "right".

Ann Coulter and Michael Savage, regardless of how you feel about them, are spreading the idea of civil war. Like it or not, these are influential people, and they may not be wrong.

Arm up and stack the ammo. Carry a defensive weapon, even if you're not licensed. If someone busts you over the head with a brick, would be rather have left your weapon at home just because you weren't "licensed" to defend yourself adequately?

Surely you can see that things are going from bad to worse. Can you explain why it will suddenly get better sometime soon? I'll wait.

Link back to the New York Times report on Clinton/Russia

With all of these investigations into Trump and the Russians, I find that it's relevant to keep going back to this report, a New York Times article detailing the sale of 20% of the US government's uranium production to the Russians.

The sale of the uranium production had to have the approval of the Secretary of State, who was Hillary Clinton at that time.

Around the same time, numerous donations were made to the Clinton Foundation by Russian officials, and despite Hillary's promise to disclose the identities of all Clinton Foundation donors, she failed to disclose ANY donations made by Russian offcials.

Where is the investigation into these dealings?

Bernie Sanders supporter opens fire.

Yesterday a man opened fire with a SKS rifle at a baseball field in Washington DC. Republican members of Congress were there practicing baseball for a charity baseball game. The shooter approached someone and asked if the people on the field at the time were republicans or democrats. When he learned they were republicans, he went back and retrieved his SKS and a 9mm and opened fire, hitting at least three people, including Representative Steve Scalise from Louisiana. He's in critical condition. The shooter was killed by police.

The shooter is a hardcore democrat and socialist who worked in the Bernie Sanders campaign. His Facebook was full of violent statements about republicans and conservatives in general.

The democrats have encouraged their supporters to "resist" and to "fight in the streets" since Trump was elected. After the election, there were dozens of riots in major cities and violence in others. AntiFa and their parent group, BAMN, now attend every conservative event for the purpose of using violence to shut the events down. They chant "punch a Nazi", but of course, a "Nazi" is anyone who disagrees with them. We see some of these groups and their members showing off their guns and posting videos of them going to ranges and shooting targets painted with "conservative" symbology.

And now we have a republican lawmaker gunned down at a baseball practice.

Democrats are constantly claiming that the things Trump says are causing people to commit violence, though they are unable to point to any specific acts of violence routinely committed by Trump supporters or conservative groups. So will they be willing to admit that their calls to "action", their calls to "fight in the streets" have stirred actual violent action?

When fighting really starts, what will it look like? Will it look like this? Is this the start?

MD Creekmore - 21 Item Walmart Prep List

A nice little list to get you ahead of most people. Only 21 points!

I love prepping lists that the average person can understand, acquire and use with ease. This list is by no means comprehensive, but when you read it, you'll see how it will get you ahead of the vast majority of the population. Even I have use for a list like this.

North Korea and the EMP threat.

I notice that anytime the subject of an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) is brought up, anyone within earshot is likely to give the thought an eyeroll.

I myself have commonly avoided discussing EMP possibilities with non-preppers because it immediately turns them off to the discussion. They simply do not consider it to be a possibility. Problem is, they don't really consider ANYTHING to be a possibility. So when I discuss prepping with non-preppers, I usually stick to hurricanes and other things they may have actually already experienced.

But, it might be time to start thinking about EMPs again. A while back I mentioned that North Korea may be fairly close to being capable of hitting the US with a nuke. But you know what's even easier than actually hitting someone with a nuke? Hitting them with an EMP. You don't need such a large device and you don't actually have to score a direct hit.

The North Koreans will probably be capable of an EMP strike before the year is over, if they're not already.

An EMP strike is not one of those gradual SHTF scenarios. It's a "here and now" situation, where everything stops right then. Water, power, medical, food, radio, cars, etc. Have a gun safe with an electronic lock, like I do? Replace the lock or leave the safe open when you're at home (be watchful to keep your kids out of it).

SWFS (Shelter, water, food, security, in that order).

CNN forced to correct fake news story, Comey/Trump.

This isn't overly important, but is important to save for posterity and for future debates. We don't necessarily need more evidence that CNN is fake news, but since they insist on providing more and more evidence, we'll gladly accept it.

And here it is.

Prior to testimony by James Comey, CNN specifically reported that Comey was going to dispute Trunp's claim that Comey told him three times that Trump was no being directly investigated.

In the testimony, Comey did nothing of the sort, and CNN was forced to retract and correct.

In other fake news, um, news... CNN fired one of their on air hosts for publicly calling the President a "piece of shit" and "an embarrassment to humanity."

Again, we don't have to add to the increasing pile of evidence that CNN is biased fake news. But then again, here we are.

Suarez on fighting knife attacks.

Gabe Suarez at Suarez International sends us the real solution to knife attacks by jihadis.

The cookie-cutter martial "artists" probably aren't going to be overly happy to learn that with all of their TaeKwonDo and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Kung Fu mastery, they will still probably get cut when one of these guys sprints into the restaurant or bar with the intent of killing people until they themselves get shot and sent to whatever amazing afterlife they think is waiting.

I have a first degree black belt in TKD myself, plus some training in BJJ, Judo and US Army MACP, and I am at least self-aware enough to understand that if you find yourself facing an opponent with a knife, you're not only probably going to get cut, you've probably already BEEN cut. That goes for me too, even with all of my AMAZING (heh) martial arts skills.

When you're finished with that article, read the one for vehicle borne jihad attacks

And then add Suarez to your daily checklist.

Herschel on Preparing for Jihad in the US.

Preparing for Jihad in America, from Herschel.

A good article to have your friends read, even better if they are one of those misguided Christians who believe they're called to invite the wolves to becoming members of the flock.

You are not morally obligated by Christianity to help Muslim refugees if it's going to get Christians killed.

In Europe, it's getting Christians killed.

The three instances Comey told Trump that they were not investigating him.

Donald Trump has insisted that former FBI director Comey told him three times that he, Trump, was NOT under any type of FBI investigation.

Here are three times where Comey said exactly that, that Trump was not under any FBI investigation.

The article also shows how CNN got their own reporting totally wrong. As if we needed more examples of that.

What I find strange, is that the left seems to believe that simply BEING UNDER INVESTIGATION constitutes a major mark against a candidate or politician. But when it's Hillary who is under multiple counterintelligence investigations... It's no big deal to them.

The left in America... The progressives, communists, democrats, socialists, whatever you want to call them... Are some of the most intellectually dishonest and hypocritical people the world has ever seen in the political realm.

Intellectual consistency the left wing bugaboo

As I look back at the body of works I have produced confronting left wing propaganda and mindsets, I realized something. Almost everything I have ever done as a film maker, author, public speaker, satirist and comedian has been an attempt to expose left wing intellectual inconsistency.  I am not saying that conservative views are exempt from hypocrisy. All people can be hypocritical at points, but the political and social left wing is brimming with blatant, non-stop intellectual inconsistency.

That is what every conservative commentator spends ninety percent of their time confronting. George Orwell described in his works "1984" and "Animal Farm" how institutionalized hypocrisy was going to become the norm within society.

"All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others!"

"War is peace. Freedom is slavery".

Orwell showed how people could be engineered to disregard all forms of intellectual consistency and hold two contradicting philosophies at the exact same time and switch back and fourth from one to the other instantly. Hypocrisy shows a blatant flaw in human intellect or morality, and that is why we have traditionally found it frustrating in western society. But this is changing. Our society is embracing moral and intellectual insanity.

Here is a video of a so called "Nigerian intellectual" telling the BBC that Trump is racist for telling a judge that he could not make proper judgement within the US courts because he is Mexican. A false statement to begin with but when Emmet Tyrell confronts her statement, she says only seconds after her statement that Mr. Tyrell has no right to make judgements about race or racism being that he is a white male. One moment we are not allowed to judge someone's judgement based on national, ethnic or racial background, but then we are able to judge someone based on their racial/ethnic background.

As Orwell said, "all animals are equal, but some are more equal than others."


Ladies and gentlemen, 1984 is upon us.

The Left blames ISIS attacks on white christians

Too often I am forced to confront pro Marxists and anti-Christian leftists about their lack of concern and response pertaining to ISIS and their violent attacks. There is a common retort and narrative they have formulated in response. They seem to believe that the violence of ISIS is a result of US and Western powers within the middle east. They seem to think that if the United States never had any military presence within the middle East, then there would be zero, or at least minimal, violence within the Middle East.

The violence between Sunni and Shia Muslims has existed for over 1,500 years. Violence against Christians at the hands of jihadists has existed for over 1,500 years and there are literally thousands of examples of mass genocides and oppression of Christian peoples through out the history of Islam.

The mass slaughters are nothing new to the region and any myth that the Middle East was ever a region of love and unity needs to be debunked and exposed for the revisionism and lie that it is.

Of course, the left will use examples of nations within the Middle East embracing secular ideals and "democracy". They will site time periods in our recent history and harp on about times of great economic prosperity and peace within places like Iran, Iraq, etc.

Simply ask these people who excuse the violence of jihadists what the Yazidi children did to merit the violence of ISIS? Ask them how US policy lead to the slaughter and attack on Armenian, Assyrian and Syriac Christians throughout places like Syria and Iraq. Ask them why the Belgian people have faced repeat attacks at the hands of Islamic extremists when Belgium has had nothing to do any military action within the Middle East and has welcomed in massive droves of refugees. Ask them why it is wrong to condemn massive numbers of Muslims for the actions of jihadists but completely politically correct to condemn all Americans, Europeans, and Christians for the actions of the US government?

We need to know that our opposition only embraces one of two things; Pure hatred of Western society and its people, or ignorance.

Frankly I am sick of the EU and the US government bombing Middle Eastern countries and controlling them, but I am also sick of those same countries swinging their doors open to massive numbers of hostile people after the fact, regardless of how valid or invalid those peoples' grievances may or may not be.

Few Americans want their resources and troops in the Middle East but the idea that the common citizen should suffer for the actions and decisions of a wealthy, well secured oligarchy is insane and stupid.

CNN staging "peaceful" Muslim demonstration.

After the attacks in London, large groups of peaceful Muslims gathered in the city's streets to show solidarity and unity and love and rainbows and all of that crap. They had their hashtag signs, and they even had a child with them. They showed us that Islamic terrorism has nothing to do with Islam.

Or did they?

Seems CNN staged the whole thing, and even failed to admit it when they were caught, calling the footage "nonsense". CNN says that police allowed the demonstrators through the barricades to show their signs.

Problem is, the same group of people, no more than a dozen, were photographed in at least three or four places. Yes, the same group.

Were they paid?

As Paul Joseph Watson pointed out, CNN refuses to play soundbites where the attackers can be heard yelling "this is for Allah", but is staging "peaceful demonstration" photo ops to show that Islam itself is peaceful.

As he said, "we are being conned".



Load your magazines. I like Black Hills 5.56, 77gr OTM. But that's just me.

Another week, another jihad attack in Britain.

Two nearly simultaneous attacks in London yesterday, one at London bridge. At least seven are dead according to the last sources I read.

As usual, you've got all of the heads of Europe proclaiming figuratively to be "standing" with London or whatever such stupid platitudes they spout off with.

Are the hashtags out in force yet? Is everyone changing their profile pic to whatever emotional bullcrap is trending today? How long before the social media attention whores get tired of changing their pic to something that isn't them? At this rate, your profile pic is never going to be anything but a support pic for whoever the jihad victims are this week.

"We are Paris."

"We are London."

"We are Manchester."

"We are London, again."

"We are London, again, ten minutes later."

Who's next?

When is Europe (or all of Western Civilization) going to drop this multiculturalism death wish?

Secure your borders and disallow everyone who tries to get in if they're not offering an obvious benefit to you society.

And I'm sorry, but being brown and exotic is NOT inherently a benefit to your society. Being a REFUGEE is not inherently a benefit to your society. Having no skills and no education is not inherently beneficial to your society.

Western Civilization is not morally obligated to absorb the entire third world.

Is the press making it impossible for Trump to negotiate with Putin?

In this Zerohedge article is transcribed an interview between a Slate reporter (yes, I know Slate is a leftist rag) and a professor of Russian studies. The professor is making an excellent point that this fake "RussiaGate" scandal being fueled by the American press is making it nearly impossible for Trump to negotiate with Putin for the purpose of "tamping down" the "New Cold War" that we are in with Russia.

I have to agree with what the professor is saying. He gives an excellent example of an equivalent: What if JFK had been constantly accused of being a Russian agent (instead of a Vatican agent, like he  was wrongly accused of being) during the Cuban missile crisis? How could JFK even begin negotiations with Nikita Khrushchev in that type of press climate? Impossible.

So how can Trump possibly sit down at a table with Putin and hold fruitful, statesmanlike negotiations with Putin when the press and a large part of Congress is pursuing this ridiculous Russian hacking conspiracy nonsense? Trump has to take an adversarial stance toward Putin just to have some credibility, which is counterproductive at this point.

Still, there has been no evidence found to support the media narrative against Trump.

Congress has made almost no progress on gun liberties.

The Hearing Protection Act has almost 200 sponsors in the US House of Representatives and almost a dozen in the US Senate. Yet, despite being introduced in January (or maybe February) the bill has had absolutely zero movement whatsoever.

National reciprocity also has some support, but again, no progress has been made on that cause either.

Despite gun liberties being part of Trump's agenda, and part of Republican congressional agendas for years, the republicans have not made a single move.

Some have said that simply getting elected and not enacting gun control measures is good enough, as "Hillary would have already passed gun control laws in her first month".

I'm sorry, but if Hillary can "pass" gun control laws in her first month, then why can't a republican congress and White House even bring a gun Liberty bill to a congressional committee for debate?

Why is no progress acceptable as long as we aren't taking steps backwards?

The time to strike the iron is NOW. We have both sides of Congress now. We have the White House now. We sort of have the SCOTUS now. So why wait until we don't? Why wait until we've lost one of those pieces? It's going to happen at some point, possibly next round of elections. The republicans hold the by TWO VOTES. Two. Why not make this a priority now, while we've still got those two votes?

One wonders if gun liberties are actually a priority to the republicans at all. Maybe gun liberties are just a convenient rally cry to get the base to vote them into office.

Still no evidence of Russian connections.

There isn't much else to say. Nothing to link to. There hasn't been a single piece of evidence linking Trump to the Russian government. How long are We the People going to be patient with a law enforcement investigative apparatus wasting our time and tax dollars trying to dig up evidence of false connections between Russia and our legally elected administration?

So far, that's what it looks like. A waste of time and money. This "investigation" began before Trump even won the election, with the intelligence collection against the Trump campaign. He's been in office for five months. We can safely say that information on any possible connection between Trump and the Russians has been collected and analyzed for at least the last 8-10 months.

After 8-10 months, no evidence has been found connecting the Trump campaign or the Trump White House to Russia.

How much longer do they need? If you recall, Hillary was claiming her email scandal was old news and not worth discussing after just a few months. Less than a year after Benghazi she was saying THAT was old news, and people actually DIED in that event.

So when does the lack of evidence and the time and money wasted make this story old news?

Probably never. The media and the democrats will string this along for as long as possible. Delegitimization of the administration is the goal.

Techniques for softening "hardened" pinto beans.

Poster "Altoidian" at Survivalist Boards gives some real world advice on how he softened nine year old pintos:

"The oldest pinto beans I could find were 9 years old. I kept them exactly as they came from the grocer shelf in a 5 lb plastic bag. They were not in an air tight container and the storage was my unairconditioned garage. We have hot summers but mild winters and our climate is desert - dry most of the year. So, reading some about the "Hard to cook old bean" stories I tested them. I know the probable reason the beans go hard is an internal reaction - rather a kind of "oxidation" within the bean itself. I suspect it has to do with acidification between the proteins and some loss of moisture. 

So, I decided the proper approach was as follows:

I took 12 ounces of the 9 year old beans, and scanned and rinsed them. I boiled 6 cups of water with two table spoons of baking soda and two table spoons of salt. I "heat shocked" the beans dumping them into the scalding water, brought them to a steady simmer in the brine for one hour (covered), took them off the fire and left them to soak over night (about 9 hours). This morning the water was dark red. I drained it and rinsed the beans which had become chewable but certainly needed more cooking - but no "crunch" at all. Instead they had a rather "hard chocolate" texture... Like the inside of an M&M. I then covered the beans in fresh water, brought them to a boil, and then back down to a steady simmer- tossed in two chicken bullion cubes, and three TBSp of dehydrated onion flakes. Covered and simmered for one hour. Result - Absolutely perfect, delicious pinto beans. Texture is, in fact, a bit over soft. I like my beans with a little resistance to the bite. But, these will do very nice with a few ounces of fried salt pork. There is no after-taste, nor bitterness to them and no taste of too much salt or even a hint of baking soda taste. Absolutely NO crunch at all. Cooked really as well as any other beans I've made - and I love beans with cornbread. Also notice, no pressure cooking at all."

Two Presidents.

Today Donald Trump, elected President of the US, is arriving at NATO HQ for a NATO summit. He has asked NATO member nations to live up to the pledge to spend at least 2% of GDP on NATO defense costs. The US spends double that already.

At the same time, former president 0bama is on a trip in Europe meeting with leaders, including German chancellor Angela Merkel. He talked about how Islamic jihadis have been marginalized and mistreated, driving them to violence. He is also talking about migrant refugees.

The timing of 0bama's trip is not coincidental. Neither is the content of his discussions.

The two trips perfectly highlight the differences between the two, and also show a conscious effort by 0bama to undermine the legitimacy and effectiveness of the elected Trump administration.

There are still many bureaucrats in the government who were put in place by 0bama to be loyal to his administration. Then once he left, they were to be loyal to Hillary. Instead, they're now in place to undermine Trump.

The US has two presidents. One is the legally elected president of the republic, Trump. The other is the former president, now the behind-the-scenes leader of the "deep state", shadow government.

How well can a president run a country when a large amount of the bureaucracy is actively working against him under the unspoken orders of a "resistance" led by the former president and his ordained successor (who lost the election)?

This is the struggle we are seeing. And make no mistake that the mainstream media, "MSM", is part of the deep state. Hillary's and the DNC's emails show this collusion without a doubt.

The political left wants Western children dead!

Another bombing from Islamic extremists in England, this time targeting young girls and children. When we discuss the black demographics of Europe and North America and the high incarceration rates and death tolls they face at the hands of police, the political left will always insist that this is a result of " systemic racism".

When christians refuse to bake cakes for gay weddings, the left insists that this is a result of "systemic homophobia" within Christian/American culture.

When Islamic adherents bomb, stab, behead, shoot, rape, and molest women and children, we are told that any discussion of this is islamophobia.

We are told by our leftist media outlets, academics and political organizations that we can not address Islam as a religion and its adherents because that would be bigoted, racist and oppressive. The left wing will not allow discussion or condemnation of the cultures and mindsets that promote death and murder of western people.

It does not matter how many murders and attacks take place abroad or in the USA, the political left will defend Islamic culture tooth and nail but quickly condemn Christians, European people and their societies.

I recently met with my girlfriend's mother, who is a neo-liberal, Jewish supremacist. Her mother told me that Islam is a peaceful religion and that white America needs to learn to accept it because soon this will become an Islamic country, and that is good. I asked her how many Islamic nations she has resided in and I encouraged her to take a long residence in one if she felt that way. She replied "I know as a Jewish woman that I would not fair well in an Islamic country!"  I asked her then why she was so eager to import Islam into Western society where those ideals where incompatible with American and Western society and culture. She responded "What's American or Western culture?! There is no such thing as American culture there is no culture here!" Later in the conversation she admitted that she hated the Christian faith and that European white people needed to pay for their crimes against the Jewish people and other minorities.

Through out the conversation she condemned Christians, Europeans, Germans, Americans and White society but then acted as if there was no such thing as European or Western society. European, Western and American society only exists when it is time for them to find wrong doing, but never exists when there is a time for praise.

I pulled my rosaries out from under my shirt, the same ones that I wore in Iraq, and told her that Christians, Americans and Western society has a culture and that I fought for this culture and it's values.

I kissed the crucifix, and this woman began to laugh.

I learned all I needed to know about Jewish supremacism and leftist marxists with that conversation.

FISA Court: 0bama Admin, "serious" Fourth Amendment Violations.

In April, the FISA court ruled that widespread spying on Americans by the 0bama admin is a "serious fourth amendment issue".

Trump's 2018 budget cuts 66 federal programs.

Trump has proposed cutting 66 government programs for his 2018 budget, that would apparently save over 26 billion dollars.

I looked at the list in the article, and I heartily agree that all of those should be cut. In fact, I think the list should be much, much longer, but it's a good start. I understand that not everything that needs to be cut can be cut immediately, but it needs to happen ASAP.

The Department of Education and Health and Human Services are both getting cut to the tune of almost $5 billion each, with HUD losing about $4 billion. The State Department/USAID is having over $4 billion in "development aid" cut. Development aid is the money we send to other countries so they can "develop". We need to keep that money.

Importantly, the Green Climate Fund and the Global Climate Change Initiative would be cut, saving taxpayers over $1.5 billion.

I would have liked to see the ATF and DEA lose a bunch of money, and the IRS as well.


So what do we need? We need the waffling Republicans to grow a pair of balls and ram this budget down the Democrats' throats. It's our turn now.

Storing Pinto Beans, Long Term.

I've talked about this in the past, but it's important to come back to this from time to time.

Food storage. You can't eat bullets, and using bullets to take someone else's food isn't a good way to go. It's a good way to come across the wrong person just one time and get killed.

So store your own. I'm doing pinto beans today. They are capable of being stored for long periods of time and are very versatile with cooking. They do not have oils to worry about going rancid.

Go to Sam's Club and get you some pinto beans:

Then go online and get you some one gallon Mylar bags:

Get some 300cc oxygen absorbers:

Get your wife's flat iron. Or your own:

And the rest is easy:

To seal the bags, it only takes a few seconds of the flat iron. Make sure there are no wrinkles, or if there are, it's sealed well. One 300cc oxygen absorber per gallon bag. I have about six pounds of beans in each bag. Leave some space in the bags, and only seal the top inch or so. If you have to cut it open, it can be resealed.

Finished product:

Use a sharpie to label contents and date. My research tells me these beans should be useable for 25+ years of packaged correctly, like above.

Storing white rice is exactly the same steps. Salt and sugar are the same, EXCEPT YOU WILL USE DESSICANT MOISTURE ABSORBERS AND NOT OXYGEN ABSORBERS. Why is that in all caps? Because oxygen absorbers will turn your granulated salt and sugar into a rock.

One 300cc oxygen absorber (you can see one sticking out of the pinto beans a couple pictures above) is good for a one gallon Mylar bag. You'll need 5gm of dessicant moisture absorbers for the same size Mylar bag of salt or sugar. Either a single 5gm dessicant packet, or five of the little 1gm packets. I've done both.

I prefer to then put the sealed Mylar bags into HDPE2 five gallon buckets with sealing lids. That will protect the bags from damage.

Note: After some years, maybe 12, pintos can become hard to cook. Literally, they'll be a bit hard and crunchy. Pressure cooking with some baking soda should solve that issue. Also, making refried beans is a way around that eventual hardness.

I've also been informed by IamZeke at Survivalist Boards that lentils can be put through the exact same packaging process described above, with "softer" long term results.

Rutherford Institute: Police "Knock and Talk" Tactics.

Police often use so called "knock and talk" tactics to coerce individuals into allowing the police to enter their homes and conduct warrantless searches for whatever can be used to incriminate the people inside.

The Rutherford Institute has an excellent Q&A on police "Knock and Talk" tactics.

Found this at WRSA. And also, this video, made by a defense attorney AND a longtime police detective, on exactly why you should never talk to the police.

Manchester bomber identified.

The Manchester suicide bomber has been identified as 22 year old Salman Abedi. He was born in Manchester after his parents fled Libya as refugees during the regime of Muammar Qaddafi.

The religion of peace, again.

Now they are questioning whether he acted alone or with assistance.

My word: He had assistance. A ball bearing suicide vest is a sophisticated explosive device. Was Abedi an expert bomb maker? I doubt that.

Return of Kings: Why White People are Dying Off.

Why White People are Dying Off, posted on Return of Kings.

Reasons?

Feminism, materialism, liberalism (neo-liberalism, not classical). RoK explains each in detail.

Suicide bomber detonated outside Manchester arena.

Hours ago, a suspected suicide bomber blew himself up outside of a concert arena in Manchester, England. As of right now, they're saying 19+ are dead and at least 50 are injured.

Terror attack outside of Manchester arena.

Sorry, it's a link to NBC, but they're currently only reporting what the authorities are telling them. They haven't yet decided how to lie to you about it. So I think the article is ok, for now. Surely, they at NBC and other MSM outlets are desperately hoping it was a white guy who did it.


This attack, if what we are hearing is true, shows another evolution in terrorist tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs). We have gotten used to heavy security measures at arena and stadium entrances, and inside the venues during whatever show we are there for. But what about the massive crowds that pour out after the show? Not everyone will arrive at the same time, but generally speaking, they do leave at the same time. It's not easy to get a suicide vest loaded with ball bearings into a major venue of they've got any sort of security protocols happening, but it's REALLY easy to simply wait around for the end of the show for the mass exodus.

IDPA clubs and events.

Have you taken a look at the IDPA? They hold fun defensive pistol competitions all over the country, and there is sure to be one near you.

Wondering if it's for you? The IDPA is for the AVERAGE pistol carrier, with an average rig, regular everyday pistol setup. It's not meant for the pros with all of their gear and fancy rigs and sponsors. It's meant for the average Joe with his normal clothing and everyday concealed carry setup.

It is for you. The purpose isn't winning (though there are "winners"). The purpose is having fun and improving yourself.

Front Page Mag: The left doesn't want to secede, it wants to rule.

The Left Doesn't Want to Secede, It Wants to Rule.

Excerpt:

"There is no form of legal authority that the left accepts as a permanent institution. It only utilizes forms of authority selectively when it controls them. But when government officials refuse the orders of the duly elected government because their allegiance is to an ideology whose agenda is in conflict with the President and Congress, that’s not activism, protest, politics or civil disobedience; it’s treason."

Z Man: American Vendée, a French Revolution comparison.

Z Man puts words to something I've said in the past, that maybe the US is experiencing it's own version of the French Revolution.

Pay close attention to the fact that the French Revolution was not a peasant uprising against the King. It was firstly a political action of the well off Jacobins.

Pay attention also to the fact that the Revolution went too far in the wrong direction.

After all of the events of the French Revolution, they ended up with Napoleon Bonaparte.

Investigator: Murdered DNC staffer sent 44k DNC emails to Wikileaks.

A federal investigator working on the murder case of Seth Rich, a DNC staffer who worked for the DNC during the primary campaign season, has revealed that Rich's computer shows he was in contact with Wikileaks. Rich was discovered to have sent them over 44,000 DNC emails showing that the DNC was actively sabotaging the Bernie Sanders campaign in order to ensure that Hillary Clinton would win the party's nomination.

Seth Rich was found murdered on a sidewalk in Washington D.C. in July of 2016, having been shot from behind at point blank range. Nothing was stolen from him.

Cyber attacks and ransomware attacks.

Last week the... Entire world... Was hit with a Ransomware attack that cripple computer networks all over the world.

A ransomware attack is basically when a hacker encrypts all of the files on your computer, rendering it useless. The hacker demands a ransom in exchange for giving you unlock key. Usually a low ransom, $300-$500 is most common. After you pay (The FBI does suggest you simply pay the ransom. Heh.), the hackers almost certainly give you the key. If they were known for not doing so, no one would pay. If you don't pay, your computer files are lost forever, unless you've backed them up and are willing to reconfigure the entire machine after having it reimaged. Either way, a headache.

Well, back to events. The world's largest ever hack attack, and it's a ransomware worm called "WannaCry" that is using an exploit called "Eternal Blue".

Eternal Blue is an exploit in Microsoft's OS that was discovered (Created?) by... You guessed it... The NSA. Now the NSA has a choice like it always does when it "discovers" and exploit. It can notify the company so they can fix it, or they can keep it secret for themselves for their own use. You guessed it again. They kept it secret.

Hacker group "Shadow Brokers" was able to glean this info from the NSA, either by hacking their networks or getting it through some anonymous source. They've turned it into a ransomware worm and are encrypting files on networks in at least 150 countries. A worm is a self-spreading computer virus.

The group demands $300 paid within three days for the unlock key, but if the amount isn't paid, they increase it to $600 to be paid in seven days. If no payment, no unlock. Done. The payments are demanded in the cryptocurrency, Bitcoin.

The attack has managed to cripple healthcare networks all over Great Britain and wreaked havoc across Europe. Some companies in the US have temporarily suspended use of their email systems in order to prevent infecting their networks.

The attacks slowed over the weekend but are expected to start up again... Today.


If healthcare networks are crippled easily by this, then why not other networks?

Automated train routing systems? Dam flow rate control systems? Stock market networks? Nuclear plant emergency cooling systems? The power grid? Telecommunications systems? Food distribution hubs? Water companies and other utilities? Sewage treatment plants? What about your "smart" cars and TVs?

Did I mention the power grid?

The last two largest hacks of all time, "Flame" and "Stuxnet" were both created and implemented by state actors (The US created both, possibly assisted by Israel). We already know this one was created/discovered by the NSA. What are the odds that it's being used by a state actor, as well? China? Russia? The US again? Or maybe it "escaped" like the Flame virus did. Or maybe it really is being used by non-state hackers. It's certainly possible today.

Christian churches in Iraq being reclaimed

According sources on the ground within the Christian militias, the war against ISIS is nearing an end. Some estimate that the conflict will continue for another 4-6 months before the country is rid of this horrific threat. Murad, the leader of of the Christian ethnically Armenian and Assyrian village of Havresc in Kurdistan, took us through a recently liberated church. 
It has been horrifically damaged, but the rebuilding process has begun.

How to talk to the police.


This is not "anti-police", it is not disrespectful.

It's logical.

The police are legally allowed to lie to you. You are NOT legally allowed to lie to them. They are legally allowed to twist your words and trick you into incriminating yourself, they call it "verbal judo" (look that up). I've been told this by actually LEOs and my research supports it as well. This is not my opinion. This is a fact, and this fact does not care about your attitudes toward police or how you worship them or hate them or any of your other emotional reactions to hearing it. It is a fact, and it is immovable.

You can "support police" all you want, put "blue line" decals on your car, wave your flags, use the "one bad apple" defense, whatever. But the logic is unassailable that you probably should avoid talking to someone who has the "legal authority" I just described.

This is not a post related to any specific police officer's behavior or any news stories about cops doing this or that. It's just a simple, unbiased, factual statement.

I did not say to insult them. I did not say to attack them. I didn't say to disrespect them or hate them. I simply said, do not talk to them if you can ever help it. Say as little as possible. Saying nothing is preferable.



"If you're not breaking the law, you have nothing to worry about!"

Wrong. You don't get to decide if what you're doing is "breaking the law". They get to decide that.

Boston Free Speech Rally, May 13th.

May 13th, Boston Free Speech Rally.

Seeing as AntiFa is inherently anti-free speech, I expect them to be present. AntiFa's Boston chapter has an active website and forum, so I expect they have some numbers. Don't forget the busses of them that apparently rolled into Pikeville and NOLA.

AntiFa's stated purpose is silencing opposition through violence. No free speech for... Pretty much anyone who opposes their principles.

Details for the event in the link above. Oathkeepers will be present and have assisted attendees with movement to locations at other events. Possibly they will be doing the same here.

No word on how the police will respond to violence. Berkeley PD received complete stand-down orders. NOLA PD received stand-back orders, but were arresting skirmishes on the outskirts of the crowd line. Pikeville LEOs held the line separating the groups. No telling yet how Boston PD and the Massachusetts State Police will handle any violence.

Left wing preppers and survivalists. Should we work with them?

The prepper and survivalist community/individuals are most often social conservatives, right wing within their politics or libertarian in nature.
Many are apolitical, but culturally right-wing in the eyes of the far left.

I have read several articles recently discussing how the left has been embracing survivalism since Trump took office.

They think that the world is going to end because of Donald Trump, so now there are left wing elements that are embracing prepping and survivalism. AntiFa and other marxist, hard left groups are embracing gun ownership and taking up arms.

Most prepper/survivalist forums take an apolitical stance and shun overt political discussion.

The time for being Mr. milquetoast on the fence is over.

If we share our knowledge with people who will use it to destroy us, then we are fools. I believe we should embrace freedom of information, but we should not yoke ourselves with elements that will use our skills and passions against us and ultimately hinder our gun rights and survivalist practices.

This is an opinion piece, but I feel that anyone who disagrees is not interested in the concept of survivalism or gun rights. If we remove our ideals from our survivalism then we will lose both.

How did Anarchism become Authoritarian?

My first interest in politics came from an anarcho-philosophy.

When I was about 12 or 13 I would always notice the big "A" symbol my favorite punk bands would have on their album covers and T-shirts. I asked an older kid in his teens what that symbol meant. He explained "It means a society with no government where everyone can do whatever they want". I found this concept shocking but interesting. As a child I was living in a town and going to a school that was run by extremely leftist, authoritarian teachers. I was constantly in trouble for questioning their propaganda. I was suspended multiple times for everything you can imagine that an extreme leftist would suspend a child for... And that is just about everything that is normal to a rational human being.

When I was in the 5th grade we were told that we could not sing certain Christmas carols, especially if they had any Christian reference. During Christmas we could only sing songs that had "holiday season" themes.

We then were being taught about Hanukkah soon after being instructed that all blatant Christian reference was not to be allowed in school. I saw the hypocrisy in this and brought this up as the teacher was giving us the history of Hanukkah. Many students agreed with me and we protested verbally. I was suspended for being disruptive and insensitive to the Jewish students.

These kinds of people and authoritarian mindsets made me only more rebellious and angry. So when I heard about this Anarchist concept, of course it intrigued me. I began researching it and found out that it was not as simple as "do whatever you want". It was a philosophy that focused on building a society based on freedom and egalitarianism. Some people may describe Anarchism as an anti-authoritarian ideal that combines libertarianism with socialism. It is a political concept where governments, oligarchs, wealthy elite, media, corporations or lords and kings have no right to control or dictate laws and ideals. The masses and individuals are free to think what they want and work together as a collective to build a better society through voluntarism.

Now of course, this is a utopian idea and it is very difficult to get such a society to function on a massive level for any extended period of time, if not impossible. But I found it inspiring.

As I became an adult my political ideals shifted but I always had a fondness for anarcho ideals and I have always seen myself as someone who is anti-authoritarian, but things have changed drastically and the people who support anarchism now are much different. At one time liberals were people who supported freedom and liberty, but now they are most often ultra-authoritarians who often are marxist sympathizers. Anarchists are now moving into the same boat as the liberals. AntiFa seems to be dominated by Anarchists and black lives matter as well.

These people hate freedom of speech, freedom of association and support authoritarian tactics to achieve their goals. Ironically there is nothing anarchist about them.

Now I see so called "anarchists" claiming to be "anarchist-marxists"! Seriously, how can you be an anarchist-marxist? That is like saying I am a violent pacifist or a satanist-Christian. Anarchists have a history of supporting and aiding communists and not realizing that the true Marxists will put them on the chopping block when they are done with them.

In Orwells book, "Homage to Catalonia", where he journaled his accounts fighting in the Spanish revolution, he describes how the anarchists formed militias and supported the Marxist militias against the government in hopes of building an egalitarian society.

The Anarchists were later rounded up and imprisoned, and often killed.

And so it goes, the cycle keeps going on and on.

Leftists hate white males but love Che Guevara?

The left seems to think white, "cisgender", heterosexual males are the bane of mankind's existence. Who can forget the left wing "activist" caught on camera who became a meme known as "Aids Skrillex" screaming his lungs out "you're a fucking white male!" trying to silence a man who was debating his views.

Left wing authors, talking heads, activists and leaders have constantly been stigmatizing white males, especially those who are heterosexual.

Then why is it that the left loves people like Che and Castro? They were cisgender, heterosexual  white males. Yes, both Che and Castro were white, meaning fully of European derivation.

Ernesto Guevara was half basque Spanish and half Irish.

Both of Castro's parents were from Europe. He was white.
I recall back in Haiti a young man telling me that he loved Castro, and I asked him why. He said "because he makes white people afraid and stands up to white society." I mentioned to the young man that Castro and Che were both white. He laughed and told me I was ignorant, that they were "Latino."

I have had the same conversation with people all over the the world, including the USA. Few people in Che's fan club seem to grasp the fact that Cuba was and is run by white males.

There was a film made about the life of Che and the actors they used were non-white actors to portray Che and Castro.

It is interesting how the twisted leftist mind works.




Why our society has lost its mind

Why is it that so many people in western society have lost their minds? Why is it that people who claim to be liberal are against the best interest of themselves and their own nations?
Why is it that our governments create polices that will only serve to harm the general public and our security rather than aid?
Yuri Bezmenov a former KGB defector was warning the public about this since the 1980s.
Here is a video of one of his lectures.  His warnings have come to fruition as far as I can tell.

Small progress for gun rights in Florida.

The Florida State Legislature wrapped up the 2017 session a few days ago, and unfortunately, all but three of the nearly two dozen pro-gun bills were killed in committee. The major hurdle for pro-gun bills in the Florida legislature is the Senate Judiciary Committee. The republicans maintain a technical 5-4 majority in the committee, however there are two republicans on the committee who have promised to side with the democrats on all future gun bills.

They are Anitere Flores (R-Miami) and René Garcia (R-Hialeah). This gives the democrats an unofficial 6-3 majority against pro-gun legislation. I personally contacted Senate President Joe Negron about the stonewalling, to no response. I also contacted my own senator, Doug Broxson, also to no response. The only person I could ever get a direct, personal response from was my Representative, Jayer Williamson, who assured me he supports open carry, campus carry and every pro-gun bill in the House.

It came to my attention that the possible reason that Anitere Flores changed her position on gun rights is becausethe lines in her voting district were redrawn to include the very left wing Florida Keys. I suppose she has gone into a sort of "survival mode" and has decided that left wing voters in the Keys are more important to her political survival than gun owners' rights. I predict she will pay for that mistake in next year's election, and it will serve her right.

As far as the gun bills that DID make it to the governor's desk:

SB-128 places the burden of proof in self defense cases back on the prosecution, where it belongs.

SB-1052 fixes a drafting effor by staff on a 2014 Castle Doctrine bill. The error has been interpreted to mean that a person must be under a physical attack before using defense in their own home.

HB-467 lowers the price of a new Florida CWL from $60 to $55, and a renewal CWL from $50 to $45.

Riots at Berkeley, Pikeville and NOLA: Who are the players and what dothey stand for?

Some of you may have heard in the news about the riots and demonstrations taking place in various spots in the country, such as UC Berkeley, New Orleans and Pikeville, Kentucky.

Who is involved in these events and what are they for? Most of these events originated as a demonstration by groups that either support or oppose President Trump and his policies. But what has happened recently is that at many of these demonstration events, opposing groups are clashing, resulting in violence.

The groups involved are many, and some of the people involved are only loosely associated with these groups. As these violent events are political in nature (what isn't?) the groups can be roughly divided along the single axis spectrum of "right" vs left".


First I'll talk about the groups on the "left".

One major group on the left is called "AntiFa", short for anti-fascist. AntiFa claims to be anti-fascist, but the purpose of their existence, according to them, is the violent suppression of "Nazi" speech and action. Their definition of what is a "Nazi" seems to be FAR reaching, to include anyone with a conservative point of view. If you are for secured borders, they consider you to be a Nazi. If you are against affirmative action, you're a Nazi. If you're proud of being white, you're a Nazi. If you give them any reason to call you a racist, and that doesn't take much, you're a Nazi. If you voted for Trump, or any republican anywhere ever, you guessed it, you're a Nazi. AntiFa is an inherently anti-First Amendment group. They are the muscle that will show up to a peaceful protest and turn it violent in order to get it shut down. They've been heard chanting "punch a Nazi in the face" and have been seen with signs that say "no first amendment rights for Nazis". They never show up unarmed. Their signature weapons are sticks/batons and pepper spray, but some of their members have been seen weilding large bicycle locks, skateboards, stones and various pyrotechnic weapons, including the explosive M80. AntiFa members dress in all black, to include black bandanas or masks to hide their identity, and group together enmasse in a tactic referred to as the "black bloc". AntiFa has engaged in violence against groups on the right at nearly every event AntiFa members have attended.

AntiFa is supported by a group called "BAMN", short for "by any means necessary", which is actually even shorter for the official group name, "The Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration and Immigrant Rights and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary". BAMN is much easier to say. All of the participants of AntiFa are also participants of BAMN, but the reverse is not necessarily true. Think of it this way: AntiFa is mostly made of college kids who only barely understand what they're doing or why. Most AntiFa kids don't actually know what real fascism is or that they are the true fascists. BAMN provides leadership and direction for those clueless AntiFa kids. AntiFa kids, like this girl nicknamed "Moldylocks", need direction from leaders like Yvette Felarca. BAMN provides that direction, as well as funding and oftentimes, bus transportation to events. BAMN members have either engaged in violence or incited AntiFa members to conduct violence in every event that BAMN members have attended.

Associated with BAMN is the National Lawyers Guild. They provide cheap/free legal assistance for members of AntiFa and BAMN. The NLG is founded and funded by none other than globalist billionaire George Soros. Fun fact: The NLG also provides legal assistance for Black Lives Matter and their many similar  shadow groups.


Now for the groups on the "right".first let me start by saying that the majority of the people who show up to oppose AntiFa are not really firm members of any group at all. They simply seem to be there because they're participating in a rally or demonstration, or are attending a speaking event, like the one held by right wing personality, Milo Yiannopolous. So, onto the identifiable groups.

It seems that at least one event was attended by members of the "Oathkeepers" (OK). OK is an organization of military veterans and and police officers who have pledged to disobey all orders that violate the US Constitution. I know for a fact that OK members have been to at least two events in New Orleans, but some reports are saying that they attempted only to keep peace and did not engage in violence. Members of OK can be paying members, or can be loosely affiliated. As far as I've heard, the OK members who attended these two events were in a sort of minor leadership role, directing right wing participants to locations where the demonstrations, for example. As far as I've leaned, OK members have not engaged in violence against AntiFa.

A group involved in at least the events in Pikeville is the Traditionalist Worker's Party (TWP). The TWP seems to be a white nationalist political organization. The mainstream media has portrayed this group as having neo-Nazi political leanings, but please understand that white nationalism is not synonymous with white supremacy, nor is it inherently neo-Nazi in nature. The group claims that they do not wish harm on any race, nor do they hate any race. As far as I've learned, the TWP has not engaged in any violence against AntiFa or BAMN.

The League of the South (LS) is another right wing group that was seen at the Pikeville and New Orleans events. LS is best described as being anti-Marxist, anti-political correctness, pro-Christian, pro-free market, pro-2nd Amendment, anti-income tax, Southern separatist organization. The groups favors tight immigration laws, which is the most likely catalyst for LS coming into conflict with AntiFa. It's unclear if any members of LS have engaged in any violence against AntiFa.

As far as other groups on the right, I am unaware of any major players. As I stated above, the vast majority of people showing up to actively oppose AntiFa are not firm members of any groups. The members of the right wing groups I've listed have shown up generally unarmed. Some of the non-affiliated participants have started showing up with weapons, such as sticks and pepper spray. One participant, nicknamed "Based Stickman", has emerged as a defactox leader after he was recorded defending his comrades with a long stick and shield from attacks by AntiFa members at UC Berekely.


Obviously the police in these areas are involved in the events taking place, but so far have mostly been impotent and useless. It appears that only at Pikeville were they effective in preventing any violence. However, I'd almost prefer they stayed out of it all. They'd probably end up arresting and charging the wrong people anyway. We know for sure that the Berkeley PD were given stand-down orders, which resulted in numerous fires and massive destruction on campus at the hands of AntiFa. I was in New Orleans on the ground near one of the events myself and the rumor passing around the streets of the French Quarter was that police had received stand-down orders and were advising people in the area to arm themselves and get indoors.


It seems all of the major violent engagements have resulted in AntiFa being chased from the AO, many of them injured. It also seems that AntiFa has initiated violence in all of these engagements, which is not surprising, since that's their stated purpose for existing as a group.

AntiFa does not currently appear to be skilled in any sort of hand to hand combat, and it's severely hindered their ability to have the effect they're going for. With that said, reports have surfaced of AntiFa members seeking out and organizing training sessions. Additionally, it has been reported that AntiFa members have taken up firearms and are training (albeit for now, poorly) to use them.


Now for my thoughts: AntiFa and BAMN are inherently anti-First Amendment and are supported by George Soros and others like him. They have threatened violence against anyone who opposes them and have shown themselves willing to travel and fight in large cities, small towns and college campuses. I can not rule out that they are supported by various US government elements. They certainly are supported by faculty members of various American universities that receive federal monies, and those universities are doing nothing about it. The mayor of Berkeley apparently has his own ties to BAMN.

I firmly believe that AntiFa and BAMN must be opposed wherever they appear, in person and with defensive violence if necessary. They are backed by foreign interests at least (Soros), and are inherently opposed to the basic Liberty of free speech, and are using violence to deprive traditionalist Americans of that right through intimidation.

Captain's Journal: Armed thugs burst into home posing as SWAT.

This piece written by Herschel should be read by everyone. This, along with this, is a good reason that law enforcement departments need to stop doing home raids except in the most necessary cases (hostage rescue, pursuing murderers/rapists, pursuing FBI's most wanted). There is simply not a good enough reason to kick someone's door in if all you're doing is looking for evidence or trying to catch a thief. That's not sufficient to risk the life of an officer or risk the possibility of making a mistake and killing or harassing an innocent person.

The police are not the military. They need to stop behaving like the military.

But doesn't it say something about our police culture when the criminal thugs on the street now find that IMITATING police behavior is a method for victimizing people?

Hm...

Aesop on the potential aftermath of retaliating against AntiFa in front of a thousand cameras.

Planning on going armed at the next FreeFor vs AntiFa scuffle?

Aesop suggests to dial back that mindset.

I agree. Go armed, because it's your right. But be aware of the consequences of shooting someone in front of a thousand cameras and millions of sets of eyes. No matter how justified you are, like the article says, once you start shooting people in the streets, it's not the end. It's a beginning.

White people in South Africa are in grave danger.

White South Africans are on the verge of being Africa's next genocide victims.

The President, Jacob Zuma, is pushing for land owned by white farmers to be confiscated and redistributed to blacks. Many white South Africans (Afrikaaners) believe that the anti-white sentiment is coming to a head, and may result in the total removal of all whites from the nation.

One group, the Suidlanders, has a mass evacuation plan that may help some of the whites, but as of yet the group has not taken up arms.

Stay turned. The US isn't the only country where whites are targets.

Should "center of mass" be switched to "center of face"?

An interesting viewpoint on switching from "center of mass" to "center of face".

The author argues that it's time to stop shooting at the CoM and start shooting at the "CoF". The rationale is that we now have assailants wearing vests, either explosive or armored. A hit scored to the CoF would defeat both vests.

I would say that choosing shot placement depends on your assessment of the situation, or as we said in the Army, what you do is determined by METT-TC. METT-TC is more detailed than what is required here, but METT-TC is sort of a catch-all term for "your situation will dictate your actions".

I can't find fault with the practice of shooting for "CoF" if you're threatened with great bodily harm or death (or if someone around you is), but IF you've got the opportunity to assess the situation and you feel that shooting for the torso is adequate, then I encourage doing that, since it's obviously a larger target. But if you assess that the target is wearing a ballistic vest (or an explosive vest) then you're not likely to defeat it with a pistol or even a rifle. You're likely to set off an explosive vest.

Disclaimer: You are obviously more likely to encounter an unarmored target in most cases, and your odds of encountering a suicide bomber are pretty low.

51% of murders take place in 2% of US counties.

This county by county map showing the distribution of murders in the US is very telling.

Can you spot the pattern?

Hint: Take a look at a county by county electoral map.

Heh.

Herschel revisits post-Katrina gun confiscations.

In this article, Herschel at The Captain's Blog revisits the gun confiscations in New Orleans during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Make no mistake, these confiscations were 100% unconstitutional and illegal, and the holders of the firearms would be totally morally justified in gunning down the law enforcement officers and soldiers who were attempting to take away their arms. After a large scale disaster, the government does not have the rightful authority to force you from your own home and remove your means to defend yourself.

The people in New Orleans were often allowed to remain with their homes, and many chose to do so. But the government agents and law enforcement officers still confiscated their guns.

I will say this again: The holders of those weapons had the full right to resist with gunfire those confiscations.

Never forget that the people in charge will not hesitate to order their henchmen to remove from you your weapons, and never forget that those henchmen will follow those orders.

There is not a single example of any event that would give the government the right to take away your weapons. When they attempt to do so, it would behoove you to resist with everything you've got.

I've already posted a video on pistol shooting from Jerry, and now I'm posting his video on rifle shooting. Watch both and use them as a foundation, if you need that.

Many things happening the President doesn't know.

Read and heed. The words of a US Army Special Forces soldier, on the shadowy goings-on behind the scenes that the President doesn't know about.

These are called the deep state and/or shadow government, and it's active.

The "gender pay gap" is not a result of sexism.

Next time some perpetually victimized individual starts shooting their mouth off about sexism and the "gender pay gap", show them this article, or any one of the hundreds (if not thousands) of others just like it that show the pay gap is not based on sexism at all. Rather, it's based on some people (in this case, women) placing a higher value on things besides wages alone in the workplace.

My response to Scott Adams (The Dilbert Guy).

Scott Adams, creator of the comic "Dilbert" (one of my favorites), is a well known conservative, and has his own blog, of course.

He made some points about the Trump presidency so far and I'm inclined to respond:

The economy? Sure it looks decent to us right now, but our national debt is insurmountable, so let's admit that. The government is still too heavily involved in the criminal enterprise that is our healthcare system, and that is over 20% of our economy. Not a good outlook.

North Korea? Right, China does seem to be involved the way we want them too. I'm glad to see some real action on NK for a change. I consider them to be a legitimate national security threat in the near future.

Syria? It's a mess. It was a mess before and after the cruise missile strike and I'm still not sure what our role is or why we should be there.

Illegal immigration? A 70% reduction on illegal immigration sounds great but I'm still looking for some stats to back that up.

Supreme Court? I like Gorsuch for now and I can't imagine him betraying the Constitutionalists on any major issue.

Healthcare? Already commented a bit on healthcare. I'm not optimistic. The last bill he pushed was 0bamacare lite, and that's not acceptable. Hopefully he will brush that aside as a plan that didn't work and will get behind something that will get the government out of the healthcare industry.

Tax reform? We shall see. Here's hoping for some sort of grossly simplified tax system.

Climate change? I hope he approaches this from a business perspective, because if so, he will quickly realize that political demand for renewable energy is still vastly outpacing the technology. Also, the climate change push is heavily politicized. Anytime a politician tries to tell you something is "settled science", make a mental note: They are not to be trusted.

RIP WeaponsMan...

I just found out that WeaponsMan has passed away.

His real name was Kevin O'Brien. He was a former Ranger and former Special Forces soldier. He was a member of the freedom movement and had a very informative and valueable blog. I hope that his family leaves the blog up or archives it or something.

Bomb Damage Assessment (BDA) on the Syrian Airfield shows that Russia Lied.

Russia and Syria claimed that only 23 out of 59 US Tomahawk Cruise Missiles actually impacted their targets, and the rest landed somewhere in the desert. No evidence was provided to back up this assertion, but many, I'd say most, people (on the Internet) were more than willing to believe it.

I stated on many Internet forums and blog comment sections that while I didn't necessarily support the action or see a need for it, I was very surprised that our targeting systems would fail at such a rate. I also asked why we would be inclined to believe a BDA from Russia or Syria any more than our own BDA. I suggested they were lying and that our Tomahawks probably had an accuracy rate of more like 99%. The Russian government has a history of lying that trumps our own government's.

Turns out I was correct. Or rather, 98.3% is correct. Wouldn't you know, someone who's job it was to know our own capabilities vs the enemy's capabilities and who's job it was to detect lies, didn't just jump on the "America sucks at everything" bandwagon. And don't think I wasn't ridiculed a bit for not just believing everything Russia said about our strike.

A satellite photo available to the public for your own BDA:



Enough patting myself on the back...

Apparently, we can see from public satelitte technology that at least 58 of the 59 cruise missiles did in fact hit their targets. The relative lack of damage to the airfield wasn't caused by the missiles missing their targets, but by the fact that a Tomahawk cruise missile, being a surgical strike weapon, doesn't have that big of an explosive warhead at all, the warhead weighing less than 250lbs. Yes, that is a SMALL explosive warhead. It's not going to penetrate earth, it's not going to wipe out double hardened aircraft hangars, it's not going to permanently destroy an entire airfield.

They're simply not made to do the things that the public apparently expected them to do.

In this case, I suppose they really were used to send a message, even if I don't necessarily support the action or the location of the action.
