Election Day +1
by Hellesponte & Kerodin
November 3, 2010

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.

Considering the 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 on 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.  If the SHTF, you will need: Defense, Water, Shelter, Food, Warmth and Medicine.  These are the basics, our sine qua non.  Electricity would be very nice. 

Offensive capability 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. 

Obviously, your 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 the financial. 

Before you spend a single dollar on preparations you must realistically assess your environment, and consider the most likely circumstances that will confront you, or your family, or your Tribe.

For instance, if you conclude that the likelihood is 90% or greater that you will bug-out of your inner city condo within

24 hours of it, then buying and storing your entire rice stockpile in the condo isn't the best plan. 

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 be minimal.

If you have not yet done a thorough analysis, take pause and begin now.  Even if you have already gathered many preparations and tools, revisiting the ever-changing battlespace is prudent.

Today the most likely cause of it is an economic collapse.

Any such collapse will be swiftly followed by a heavy-handed response by Government.

Count on it.

Economic collapse, by definition, ensures a major disruption of just-in-time supply lines.  Shelves at the stores will empty, and prices will skyrocket.  Banks will shutter, and if you do manage to get any of your paper from within their vault, it will be essentially useless.

Use these criteria as a starting point, and ponder the essentials today.  See where your thinking takes you.

Let another part of your brain begin working on this combat tip: Never discount the value of fire in a fight for your life.  How can you make it, how can you direct it, how can you kill your enemies with it?

Excerpt: There 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?!

Are 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.


Excerpt: 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 tell! 

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 sense.


Excerpt: The Bill of Rights articulates the natural rights of man, rights that are not bestowed by government, but rights that are innately 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 relationship between Man and Creator. 

Every narrowing, 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 Government is an act of Treason, as these violations are 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.

Try not to make it to the Big League before it begins.

How do you know when you have made the Bigs?

You catch a Federal case.

When you earn real attention from our Masters, you'll know it...usually after it is too late.  Our Masters will tolerate quite a bit from folks, even Patriots who are rabble-rousing.  They really don't care if you are stocking up on rice and beans, even rifles and bullets.  They don't care if you call them names or incite a few misdemeanors or send them snarky little letters.  If you are trying to get their attention and you have not yet caught a Federal case, it's still amateur hour...or maybe you are valuable to them...

It's when you start to have an impact on the flow of dollars that you will earn real interest.  Write a report that negatively impacts the stock value of a few Fortune 50 companies, and you will soon have a genuine understanding of the term Lawfare. 

You may also be schooled on Constructive Possession.

There are many lessons you may be taught.  Right Now.

You will learn inside baseball details about the US Code that will make you ill. 

The world begins to move very, very quickly. 

You will be faced with stark choices that have never entered your mind, because you think you understand the rules.

You do not understand the rules, until you have been inside the machine.

Then your options are put on the table: 2 years if you take the deal, or 20 if you fight...and we'll add a Conspiracy case for your little dog, too...

You will learn that the power of a US Attorney is crushing.

Do not make it easy to take you out of play, Patriot.

And, it is oh, so easy...if they ever decide to do it.

The choice is theirs...not yours.

Truth, Justice & the American Way?

Not so much.

The DOJ conviction rate is 95% in a bad year, and pushes above 98% according to some stats.  The deck is not only stacked in their favor, they own the deck.  And the card table.  And the casino.  Do you understand?

Can you name any Federal bureaucracy that runs at a minimum 95% efficiency rate?  What does that tell you?

Do not make the mistake of thinking that you intimidate them just because they have not yet chosen to come for you...

The Point: If you are trying to incite Big Brother to notice you, go for it!  But, man up and roll bigger dice.

If you would prefer to make your preparations for it with relative impunity, just go about your business and avoid taking actions that will make it easy for Them to take you out of play, and do not give them a reason to take you out of play.  Don't telegraph about the details of your preparations or defensive measures.  Don't put a pistol in your belt, against your local laws, unless you are willing to use it when LEO spots you in the convenience store.  Avoid gratuitous violence.

Do not draw hyperbolic lines in the sand.  When you draw lines in the sand that you do not defend, it reveals you for what you are deep in your Soul...and some of that bad energy splatters on us, too.

There will be plenty of opportunities for a fight, if you want one, soon enough.  Be smart, stay off the radar, so that any fight you engage will be on your terms.

Simo Häyhä: One Man, One Rifle

262,000,000 people were murdered by  governments during the 20th Century.


I just ordered The Constitutionalist by TL Davis.  I read the first chapter online, and decided I needed the entire book.

Check out the site, and think about buying a copy.

Get your head on straight, Patriot!Following the counsel of idiots and hollow heroes regarding SHTF circumstances will get you dead...and if you can't tell the difference between serious men and hot-air machines, you're already half way to a mass grave.  Growling on blogs about how you will not yield one more inch, or one more of your gun rights, then letting LEO have your pistol during a traffic stop makes you a pathetic joke, not a Leader worthy of serious consideration.  Hyperbolic proclamations about what you will do to any Alphabet Agency team making a dynamic entry to your home is hardly helpful to the Patriot cause.

Man up and think for yourself, or you are wasting perfectly good air, and feeding those who depend on your intellect and common sense false hope.

"Liberalism, and Liberals, are ruinous to the republic, and must be marginalized if America is to survive.  Patriots must step to this challenge and risk the wrath of the Politically Correct, and do the work that must be done to honor our Fathers.  Liberals must be stopped, at any cost." - Kerodin


"No, I apologize for nothing.  I know the truth, regardless of what may be in the press.  I know that when I stand before Saint Peter, I will be granted passage.  If I am ever granted audience with God, I have nothing to fear.  I have lived the life He chose for me, and I still have much work to do..." - Kerodin


"No man looks forward into life when young and can imagine for himself the life I have lived.  But I am better for it.  I have been places never anticipated.  I have had experiences never dreamed.  I have met people who would have never otherwise been in my social or professional circle.  I have, many times, leaned upon the words of Winston Churchill - 'When you are going through Hell, keep going!'" - Kerodin


My family continues to promote my values where I can not.  They are Patriots.  If you ever meet my wife, you will meet the most loyal wife and Patriot in America.  She is brave, brilliant, and bold.  We fight Liberal stupidity together through the First Amendment.  Laws change - and one day I will stand with her again in the Second Amendment fight that she carries on when I must stand aside."  - Kerodin


Current political leaders are only the face of the problem confronting America today.  The underlying cancer eating the American Soul is Liberalism.  But for your Liberal neighbors, Liberal politicians would never be elected to office.

It is not sufficient to simply defeat Liberal politicians at the polls.  Liberalism must be defeated in our society and Liberals must be marginalized, or this disease will kill the republic.

Every patriotic business owner should immediately fire every Liberal on staff and hire an employee who respects the nation and our Constitution.  Why should any business owner suffer an employee who will simply vote for politicians who further ruin the company?!

The Liberals in your community must be ostracized and denied entry into your social circle.  These stupid people are responsible for the insanity that affects everything from your property taxes to the curriculum taught to your children.  Why would you break bread with them, when they are the reason your bread costs too much?  Why would any parent permit them access to their children, when they are responsible for ruining your child's future?


Excerpt:

This book may not be for you.

If you consider yourself to be a Liberal or Progressive, go away. You are not permitted to buy this book. This book is written by patriotic Americans for patriotic Americans. This is a discussion among ourselves, and if you are a Liberal politician or you vote for Liberal politicians,
(Of the genus Stupidus Liberalis)  you are not invited to participate.

First, we will demonstrate that all politicians, judges, and government employees at the Local, State, and Federal levels who support federal Healthcare Reform, the Assault Weapons Ban, TARP, Stimulus I, Free Trade Agreements, PATRIOT Act, the new “Jobs” bill, or a host of other such Federal programs or initiatives, are guilty of Treason against the United States of America.

Secondly, businesses, multi-national corporations and special interest groups that support Liberal politicians and/or Liberal programs, Cap & Trade, Global Warming legislation, et cetera, are committing Treason against the United States of America.

Finally, we will demonstrate that those private Citizens who support or vote for any of these politicians—once the nature of the politician is known to the public—or programs are equally guilty of Treason by knowingly lending material aid and support to a Traitor.


Excerpt: The five most expensive parts of our national budget are:

1.      Social Security

2.      Medicare

3.      Medicaid

4.      Defense

5.      Interest on the National Debt

Numbers 1, 2 and 3 are wholly unconstitutional and brought to us by Liberals. 

Number 5 is wholly a result of numbers 1, 2 and 3!
