Are you on a Government list?

When it 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 real fight.

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.

Handguns: Become 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 formidable adversary.

Pie plates = head 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 target.

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.

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.

Liberalism is Treason & Tyranny

Jus 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.

"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!
