Nothing has changed
during the last 48 hours.
Only time will tell
if those new politicians that we are sending to
Washington and our local offices will begin to turn
the battleship, or even try. Obviously, any
Tea Party candidate who compromises or trades
votes in the spirit of cooperation has been
lost to the cause.
Ours is a republic.
We have delegated tasks to those who will represent
us for the next political cycle, now let them do
their thing. We shall see...
Your reality has not
changed, nor will it change in the immediate future.
You have chores.
polygonal battlespace, our attention has
been on the political realm recently. Now it
is time to shift focus back to the other fronts of
this relentless attack that moves upon us from all
directions. Ideally, you did not permit
politics to consume all of your energy over these
past few weeks and months. To survive a
multidimensional conflict, you must keep your head
on a swivel and your mind processing on several
levels at the same time.
If the elections have
demonstrated anything to us, it should be a rising
foreboding that the economic stresses challenging
the nation will find no relief from the Political
Class. It is likely beyond their control, even
if they chose to take real action. Keep an eye
Denninger for the latest real information.
The only action
available to Washington that would make an immediate
difference in our economic reality will not be taken
until a collapse. The fix is to immediately
stop spending on every extra-Constitutional agency
and program, cold turkey.
They will not do it
until the facade of civilization has been ripped
away. So be it.
Remember the basics.

Food, Warmth and Medicine. These are the
basics, our sine qua non. Electricity

should be built into your lifestyle. Often,
the line between offense & defense is muddled, and a
strong moral argument can be made for many actions
that, on their face, might appear to be gratuitous
aggression and beyond the scope of defense.
Most readers of this
column are well read in TEOTWAWKI matters, so I will
not explore them deeply, but for offense & defense.
budget is the prime consideration and
limiting factor as you prepare. While
every Patriot would be well served with a
Steyr SSG 08 across the back for any
urban ruckus, the reality is that dropping
$6,000 on a rifle, before optics and spare
parts, ammo and magazines is beyond reach
for many folks.
The reality is
also that such a rifle would be imprudent
for many folks as they design their battle
kits for practical reasons that go beyond

must realistically assess your environment,
and consider the most likely circumstances
that will confront you, or your family, or
if you conclude that the likelihood is 90%
or greater that you will bug-out of your

24 hours of

rice stockpile in the condo isn't the best
Likewise, if part of
your contingency plan revolves around a cabin in the
hills, and you don't own a 4x4...
Most of you are
already beyond these considerations, having thought
about the most likely challenges you may face, as
well as the realistic limitations of budget and
other relevant circumstances. But, if you have
not, then take some time and survey the landscape of
our little piece of the world, and your place in it.
What are the most
likely events that may lead you to action? How
do you plan to participate? Will you be a
Ninja Patriot leaving home & hearth to the wife and
kids as you go hunting for Restoration? Will
you draw the line at your doorstep, and engage in a
fight only when they come to your home? Will
you pack up and head for the hills?
If you do not answer
these basics, honestly, you can not be
prepared when the balloon goes up. Such
matters must not be simple mental diversionary
escapes for you from the cube in which you are
working 9-5. These are serious matters, and if
not given proper consideration, you and yours will
become fodder for the worms, the buzzards, or the
animals who will become Masters.
Of course, there are
variables that will determine which course one may
take. If X happens, then Y is the proper
response. But, if Z happens, then Y2 is the
proper course. But if you have not identified
and defined the battlespace and the potential
variables, you can not respond prudently. This
is a mental exercise, and fortunately, most
preparations will overlap, so there will be very
minimal wasting of resources.
Example: No matter
what happens, the ability to fill your hands with a
strong, reliable battle knife is fundamental.
Whether circumstances demand contingency Y or Y2,
your knife is essential. If you start from a
well thought-out premise, waste and redundancy will

done a thorough analysis, take pause and begin now.

Economic collapse, by

comes a time when civility is no longer appropriate
as the only option on the table. Dare we not offend the
sensibilities of Liberals, Socialists, and Communists in our
midst who are ruining and destroying our republic? Are we
to cower and sheepishly genuflect when we are scolded for
the tone or choice of our words in the face of ruin,
poverty, tyranny, and death?!
we so frightened of chastisement from insignificant men and
women of the political Left with stained and darkened souls
that we turn from our duties of Patriotism and shun our
sacred obligation to support and defend the Constitution of
the United States of America? We ask you, is not our
republic worth the risk of being castigated? Is the soul of
our mighty nation no longer worthy of our fortunes, our
lives, and our Sacred Honor? Have we lost so much of our
heritage, our courage, our mettle, and grit that we will
stand idly by and permit the foolish and the stupid, who
work hand-in-hand with evil people in our nation, that we
will permit them to send us into eternal slavery and tyranny
as the world has never before witnessed?
Excerpt: You are a
fool if you do not believe that elements of the Left would
use force, if they could, to compel you to comply with many
of their edicts. In drafting healthcare reform, they use
the threat of financial fines, felony conviction and
prison if you refuse to buy health insurance!
How is that not only a
degree or two removed from a pistol to the head? We are
undeniably heading toward the same tyrannies known to
Russians, Germans, and the Chinese. It starts with
Liberalism, advances to Socialism, and ends with Fascism,
Communism, or some other tyranny…and death.
We have a
culture of people whose first response to a physical threat
is to dial 911, or worse, a lawyer. We have a nation of
people who will dump hot coffee on themselves, then sue the
restaurant – and win! We have a nation of educators
who suspend children for drawing a picture of a handgun or
for bringing a Boy Scout knife-and-fork kit to show and
We have a nation of
people so removed from the food chain that many would starve
to death if the local supermarket closed. We have a nation
of people who cannot truly grasp the hardships faced by most
of the people in the world every day, and as a result we
have a nation of people who have lost fundamental common

of Rights articulates the natural rights of man, rights that

ours as human beings. These rights may not be taken from
us. These rights were written in plain language so that no
clever interpretation and manipulation of the intent was
possible. These rights may not be restricted, narrowed, or
infringed. Any attempt to do so is a violation of the

restriction, infringement, and clever interpretation imposed
upon us in the years since our Constitution was ratified is
simply a violation of our natural rights.
We hold that every
violation of the Constitution and Bill of Rights by those in

unjust, undermining the fundamental foundations of our
republic, breaking the pact between citizen and government,
and desecrating the relationship between Man and Creator.
Any man or woman who enforces these unconstitutional laws on
behalf of government is a treasonous soul and an enemy of
Liberty and humanity.

Current political leaders are only the face of the problem

eating the American Soul is Liberalism. But for your
Liberal neighbors, Liberal politicians would never be
