Are you on a
happens, whatever it may be, do you expect to
be one of the first Patriots visited by Team Tyranny
for a seat on the buses heading to the camps?
Depending on the
national SitRep, the first engagements will be the
most difficult for Patriots to recognize as a
coordinated move by Government. If there is no
precursor that puts Patriots on a heightened state
of alert, it is likely most Patriots won't see it
coming. It will just be another day.
Kids go to school. Parents go to work.
Chores are typical.
Then LEO kicks in the
door with a full tactical sweep at 4am. Or,
even worse, the Patriot is approached by a single
officer out in the world somewhere far from his Go
Bag. The nice officer simply greets you with
the muzzle of his weapon and tells you to be cool
while others swarm from hidey spots.
The worst scenario
involves getting a phone call from the local LEO
shop on your cell phone. Officer Friendly
explains that your wife and kids have come for a
comfortable visit, and you should join them all.
Make no mistake, it
will be LEO who comes for you during the
first wave. He may be in uniform, or
plainclothes. He may even be a mercenary under
Government contract. No matter the details, he
will come under the color of law, with paperwork in
order, in force, and with safety off.
During Katrina it was
the first wave of firearm confiscations that were
the most successful, because folks had not yet
received the memo. In the III Community, once
it is known that Government is making a move,
everyone will be on alert and the game of
confiscations gets exponentially more ugly.
There are certain
skill-sets in which every Patriot should strive to
achieve a level of proficiency. There are
uncountable variables along the spectrum of SHTF &
TEOTWAWKI scenarios. But there are fundamental
skills that will serve the Patriot well and help
prepare for the ugly possibilities in the world.
Many skill-sets require considerable time and energy
commitments to attain proficiency. Decide your
timeline and invest your resources, whether time,
energy, money or other, accordingly.
Liberty is yours from
birth. You are the only human being ultimately
responsible for maintaining your Liberty. If
you die enslaved, it is your fault.
The most important
facet of survival is your common sense and judgment.
Just because you have a slick and tricked out 1911
or black rifle doesn't mean you should employ either
inappropriately. Begin to incorporate a higher
state of awareness to your everyday routine.
Also, begin to incorporate a higher state of
preparedness, be ready to counter LEO even when in
the most inconvenient environs.
Should you begin to
carry your pistol concealed even though you do not
have a permit? That's your call, not mine.
One consideration: When you are in line at the
convenience store and the astute beat cop spots the
bulge and begins to make his move, if you are not
prepared to kill him and move on you'd better be
prepared for years in prison. One or the other
will happen...even if your LEO is an Oath
Keeper. Then you'd better be ready to live the
rest of your life as a hunted man. You must operate
on the assumption that video and witnesses will
ensure that LEO will hunt you until you are dead.
CQB: When in
close quarters with bad guys who intend to have your
submission, you will be faced with two immediate
choices: Fight, or Submit.
If you choose to
fight you will be armed or unarmed.
Unarmed: If you have
decided to invest years to learning unarmed combat
and you can afford the time, I strongly recommend a
foundation of Aikijutsu with a strong dose of BJJ
(Though I prefer GJJ). LEO likes to swarm,
grab and tackle. Aiki will help you defend
swarms and grabs, and GJJ will help you kill from
the ground where you will often find yourself in a
If you are looking for
more immediate results and feel time is against you,
find a Krav Maga class in your area. Six
months of serious Krav Maga work will leave you
better prepared for the realities of physical combat
than 95% of your Countrymen.
The true key to
unarmed combat is to reconcile yourself to the fact
that it is messy, close and hard work. Get
used to being grabbed and making contact. You
will get punched and kicked in a real fight.
Take your first hits in a good Krav or BJJ/GJJ class
so that when it happens in real life, you'll have
been there and done that.
If you go for BJJ/GJJ
do not be afraid to explain to your instructor that
you want to focus on finishing holds for the first 3
months. (Aiki dojos will not be interested in this
approach). These are the chokes and locks you
can use to break and kill an enemy. Once you
have a decent arsenal of fight-ending techniques,
you can begin to fill in the blanks with escapes and
maneuvers. Even if you train in Krav Maga,
there is no substitute for the raw reality you will
learn in a groundfighting class.
Blades: Every Patriot
should own at least two serious knives. A
three or four inch folding knife should always,
always be just inches from your grasp. Do not
underestimate the lethal potential of a dedicated
man and his folder. Get close and slice.
Get close and drive it into eyes, ears or any other
vulnerable spot that your enemy presents. The
key is to get close and be rid of any inhibitions.
Do not put your
folder in a pocket! That knife is useless to
you when you unexpectedly find yourself beneath a
240 pound bad guy intent on cuffing or killing you.
Make sure you can get to the blade and deploy it
with one hand.
A real combat knife
should be with your gear.
proficient at hitting a pie plate at 25 feet with
your chosen caliber. If you are just starting
out, begin by using a Ruger or Browning .22 and work
up to your preferred caliber. Note: If you
never "graduate" to a caliber beyond the .22, don't
think yourself vulnerable. Learn to put that
.22 slug where you want it, and you will be a

shots. Body armor is an obstacle. Remember, there
are only 3 targets that ensure an immediate end of
forward motion to an advancing enemy: Brain, spine,
femur. A brain shot will turn the lights off 99 out
of 100 times, allowing you to engage the next
A spine shot will
always result in an enemy who drops
immediately. But, depending on where he is hit, he
may still be able to pull a trigger. The same
obtains with a femur that gets busted by a bullet.
The leg will not work, and the enemy will go
down. But he can still pull his trigger, so an
immediate double-tap to the head is a requisite if
you put your target down with a spine or femur shot.
Become proficient at
engaging targets out to 25 feet in poor light
conditions. Learn to use cover, and think
about what is good cover in your home. Drywall
will not even slow down LEO's lead.
CQB is ugly business.
Unless you get dead in the opening moments you can
expect a few up-close and very personal experiences.
In the real world CQB engagements become bloody,
sweaty struggles. Handguns can run empty with
no time for reloads and suddenly you have to pull a
blade or beat the enemy to death.

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
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.
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.
Treason & Tyranny
ad bellum: There is a moral obligation on the part
of any Patriot who decides to engage in violence,
before you cross the Rubicon and plunge yourself and
perhaps your republic into the horrors of civil war.
Killing an enemy is always just and proper in the
face of an existential threat. Whether the
Liberal comes to your home to kill you, or
sends armed Government thugs to kill you, or to
interfere with your ability to provide for your
family, he poses the same existential threat to you and
your family as does the liberal who pulled that
lever in the voting booth. Dead is dead,
whether by violence or poverty and starvation caused
by Liberal policies, and both are morally sound
justifications for war.

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
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?

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.
