Fiction or Prophesy

by Hellesponte & Kerodin
December 8, 2010

A bit of fiction with Orwell in mind, which turned out to be not so much fiction...

At the age of seventy seven, the old Patriot sat before the fire in a very remote cabin on Kodiak Island.  The warm glow washed him, and felt good upon his thick, wool socks.  Two Akita dogs were curled together in a deep sleep in the corner, worn out from chasing a Kodiak Kodiak far from the cabin earlier in the day.  The boy came home with a limp (again), and a look of mischievous satisfaction in his eyes.  Mama Patriot was up in the loft, on the phone with her niece.

He had wanted this cabin thirty years before, but The Ruckus had delayed the dream.

The republic had been under assault for more than one hundred years when it finally happened in December 2012, the greed and moral decay of the preceding century had become too much and the system collapsed.  Very few had been prepared.

The elections of 2012 had seen a sweep of promising new blood headed for Washington, State legislatures and Governor's Mansions.  Even places like California and Massachusetts trended Red.  Where 2010 had seen the rise of the Tea Party, 2012 followed with people who called themselves Constitutionalists, and even a few who called themselves III Percent Patriots. They were a hard lot.

The Collectivists of the time saw the writing on the wall.  They understood that their window was being slammed shut, they had failed to vote into place their dreams of Mao and Che and many of their achievements would soon be rolled they decided to resort to the real tools of revolution.

Chaos is the friend of the Revolutionary.

Capitalizing on the crushing failure of the Euro, which had been artificially cobbled together for years, the German people had finally demanded that their politicians let the last of the PIGS meet the fate that was destined for any Socialist economy.  Greece and Ireland had surrendered in 2010.  Portugal stumbled in 2011, and Spain could fend off the inevitable no longer.

Germany declared the Euro a failed currency, the EU a failed political construct, and began printing the Deutsche Mark once again, and asserted her national sovereignty.

World markets held their breath, terrified and trying to decide whether to panic or simply go further into denial.  In Washington, a White House official who had come from the farthest Left of American Politics, stood at a podium and declared that the Administration would call for a complete, transparent investigation into the possible financial misconduct of the three largest American banks, and suggested that they may be insolvent.

The Ruckus was on.  History can never know if there was any veracity to the suggestion from the White House, because within hours each of the three banks were depleted of cash reserves as people demanded their money.  The bank run spread, as people concluded that other banks might be in trouble as well. 

All American cash reserves were limited to what each Citizen had in his pocket or stuffed in the mattress.

The first riots started three days later as protests.

By the next week, rioters were hungry.

It was a cold winter.  There was no cash to pay bills, and homes began going dark.  Oil tanks ran dry.  Pantries became bare.  Treasury started printing money, but confidence had been shattered, and the paper was useless.

Just-in-time supply lines failed as cash became worthless.  There were not enough people with gold or silver to buy stuff, so the stuff stopped being delivered.  By Spring, people were dying of cold, hunger, disease and violence as frightened people began hunting one another for the stuff of life. 

More died every day as Government used force to maintain its power.  Those who would be our Masters controlled it all from bunkers, many drunk on the power they had been working for generations to wield over their fellow man.

It didn't take too long before even those in the employ of Government, the military manning checkpoints and the police at every level, began to wander from the reservation.  Big Uncle could feed them, and their immediate families, but mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews were dying across the land.  Soon, only the largest cities were under Federal control.

Those smart ones in the DC area realized that there was only one real target for the foreign enemies of America...Washington DC.  We left.  That fall, as the first winds blew cold from Canada, Washington DC was turned to a sea of glass.  No one really knows how, or who.  It may have been on a truck.  Maybe not.

Federal Government was no more.

Surprisingly, there was no invasion.  Our enemies were content to watch us whither on the vine, and of course we still had sailors with nukes out and about.  Our military did their job, except for the percentage who turned their weapons on their Countrymen.

The winter of 2013 was brutal.  When Spring dawned, there were not more than one hundred million of us left.  Power had been concentrated around the country in groups of former LEO, and competed with groups that had always had the hard minds needed to survive - criminals and gangs.  Of course, there was no difference between the Warlords who were once LEO and the others...they were all brutal.  Many had put people back to work in local industries, manning factories and plants to make widgets and bust sod.  There was no real choice in the matter, the Warlords would simply shoot anyone who refused to work.  A system of barter among regions had evolved.

It was all rather Soviet.

But in the Spring of 2014, Patriots began to move from their basements, cabins and bunkers.  Most worked alone.  They were driven by what most people assumed had been murdered forever: Patriotism.

Patriots started hunting.

Those who would be Masters in the new America began to die.  Hard.  Word spread, and in the hearts of those average folk who had managed to survive thus far a fire began to burn in their chests.  As Patriots hunted, their Countrymen were emboldened.  Copies of the Constitution began popping up everywhere, becoming the rallying cry for a people who still understood in their hearts that Americans were never meant to be slaves.

History recorded that in every major city across the continent there were only small numbers of Patriots who went out and challenged the Masters.  It seemed there was no coordination between cities, instead, there were simply folks tucked away in nooks, crannies and corners of the land who saw things the same way, folks who did not like bullies or tyrants, folks who would kill for their Countrymen.

The oddity was, that in each city and town, these Patriots recognized one another by a symbol, a common denominator that defied easy explanation because there was no leader of these Patriots, no organization.  These Patriots did not hide.  While they could blend with the populace they were never afraid to identify themselves once the killing started.

It had taken just two years to be rid of most of the Tyrants across the nation.  It seems that when dedicated Patriots begin to put crosshairs on Tyrants, change is inevitable. 

Within seven years of the beginning of The Ruckus, a small group of men and women from each State met on the gulf coast of Texas.  They agreed, and went home, carrying the suggestion that the 113th Congress would meet the following Spring in the new capital of the republic...Kansas City.

Why not Kansas City?

They would recognize State boundaries that had been in place before The Ruckus.  They would return to the Constitution, and do away with a few of the perversions that had lead the republic to ruin.  The Sixteenth and Seventeenth Amendments were gone.  They'd make it official later.  The Tenth would be granted the respect it deserved.

The Second was off limits.  Period. 

They all agreed in principle that any politician who violated their oath to ...protect and defend the Constitution... would face Impeachment.  The bar would be low, and the process available to the Citizens of the politicians home State, at any time during his term.

The first act of the new Congress was to dedicate a monument to the Patriots who had come hard upon the enemies of the republic in her darkest hours.

It was a simple and familiar statue, the Minuteman.

On the base, a chiseled roman numeral.

The old Patriot rubbed his feet together, enjoying the fire.

He glanced at the ball cap hanging on the hook near the door...OD in color, with a black III embroidered on the front.

That had been many years ago... 




III Percent Patriots



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.

Sons of Liberty Flag

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.

What is a III Percent Patriot

Historians consider that about 3 percent of Americans took arms and challenged the King during the Revolution.

3 percent.  III Percent.  Threepers.


We exist today.

We are that percentage of Americans who have the tools and mettle of the Militiaman who stand and have drawn a hard line for the Hard Right of the political spectrum.

We are that cadre of American Patriots who refuse to yield further.  Our fathers and grandfathers permitted the insanity of Collectivism too much latitude, and it is we that History has called upon to set the republic back to her Constitutional principles.

The diseases of Liberalism and Collectivism are murdering the republic. 

We are simply Patriots who are finished passively backing up. We are Patriots who have decided to take action...and if you are an enemy to the Liberty of the republic, stand aside, shut your mouth, or face the consequences of trying to enslave a group of men and women who have no intention of accepting the chains.

The concept of the III Percent is a matter of historical fact and state of mind.  It is not a club or private group.  No Patriot need submit an application to any Leader seeking acceptance, and no entity may strip you of the III Percent title.

If you are an American who shares the ideals of that historic III Percent of Americans who took arms against the King and took to the field when we needed serious men and women who were willing to fight, kill and die for the ideal of Liberty, you are a III Percent Patriot.

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.

If you draw a line in the sand, defend the damned line!  Do not whine and make excuses later about the better part of valor!  Your poor judgment (drawing the line) and cowardice (choosing not to defend it) colors us all.

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?


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!
