It's the Constitution, Stupid!

by Hellesponte & Kerodin

Any citizen who supports using the force of Government to advance and impose Liberal ideals in contravention to the letter and spirit of our Constitution is an enemy of Liberty and an enemy of the republic.

III Conflict
by Hellesponte & Kerodin
July 19, 2010

There is considerable confusion and hesitancy in the III Community.  When do we fight?  Whom do we fight?  Who are our leaders?  How do we fight?  Ballots or bullets?  AO or MO?  Small Unit Fire Teams?  Do we create Sniper Teams?  Do we create Special Ops teams of Saboteurs and Provocateurs to harass and deny the enemy?  Or, do we go Ninja and work independently, with no coordination, indeed, no knowledge, of others working in your AO?

There are numerous voices within the III Community.  Several, including Mike at Sipsey Street Irregulars and David over at War on Guns are outstanding examples of Patriots who work very hard to keep the community informed and provide commentary, and offer to share their expertise on matters.  There are many others.

Every individual is ultimately responsible for himself and his family.  When the SHTF, whatever circumstances may obtain, it is your reasoning, your consideration, and singularly your decision how to respond and act. 

There are many viewpoints within the III Community. 

As I have explored the III Community on the web I have found that the common thread among the most adult and serious minded is that conflict is inevitable.  Most have moved beyond the academic contemplations of if and why, and moved into the practical contemplations of recourse.

The Event is inevitable.  It is imminent.  The Political Class will either create a crisis or take advantage of a crisis as a means to put their "Plan", whatever that Plan may be, into action.  It is not if...but when.  If you disagree with me about this, please do not bother to write.  I simply can not be bothered to spend energy on you.  I have connected the dots and I understand what is coming for us.

When we consider the Trigger Event that may begin an event or chain of events leading to SHTF scenarios, the variables are many.  Earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, economic blips, a coup in the nation of WhoCaresWhere.  Katrinas, Wacos, Ruby Ridges are a dime a dozen.  Many are spontaneous.  Some...not so much.  The Trigger Event is a detail, and probably an insignificant detail.

It is the response from Government that will force you to consider your contingency plans and, perhaps, engage in a protocol.  Government takes many forms in America.  Regulators, city councils, city inspectors, bureaucrats of many flavors from the smallest cities, towns and villages up to the most sophisticated of their ilk, the Federal Bureaucrat. 

LEO has a similar organizational structure.  Living just 8 minutes from Washington DC I have hundreds of LEO shops within 20 miles of my home.  Where you live there are probably fewer groups and overall numbers of boots on the ground, though the same structure applies.  You will have your city/town cops.  You'll usually have County police and the Sheriffs department.  State Troopers.

Depending on the nature of the Trigger Event, the damage being wrought, and the brazen nature of the Political Class, you may find US Military in the mix.  As someone who was in DC on 9/11, understand that the Political Class has tremendous resources at their disposal.  It did not take very long to put the Nation's Capitol on lockdown, including Stinger Anti-Air units on the National Mall, Hummers with M2 Browning's stretching from Georgetown through Capitol Hill on most corners.

Whatever it may be, when it happens, you are alone in your actions.  Most of us will simply do as the nice men and women with overwhelming firepower tell us to do, leave the area as quickly and safely as possible and get to our children and families.  Once they are safe, we can settle in for a while to let events unfold.

Once you are home and safe with all family members accounted, you must assess the situation and determine your course of action.  Many people in the III Community are networking today and developing contingency plans and protocols.  Intel is the order of the day in the early hours and days of any event that brings Government into action.

Here is where the variables fill our considerations and the sheer number of what-ifs becomes daunting to wrestle.  So, you prioritize.  What are the most likely challenges that you will face?  Firstly, is it safe to stay where you are or has the situation devolved to a point that you need to boogie to a safe house?  Are you on a list, and relatively certain that Government will be coming to your home to take your weapons, or you?  No one can answer any of the questions for you.

There are three points that are of vital importance as regards this column. 

     ~ First, you must  embrace the concept that Government will at some point seek to impose its will upon you and yours at the muzzle of a weapon.  If you do not believe this is likely to happen, do not waste your time. 

     ~ Second, you must decide how you will meet this challenge.  If you choose the path of the Patriot, then commit to the decision.  Research what you need to learn.  Acquire the tools you will need to possess.  Train yourself and your family members the basics.  Do not become a Keyboard Commando.  Do the business of preparing yourself and family to survive and prevail.

     ~ Third, It is of the utmost importance that Patriots from every corner of America share the same End Game.  There must be a singular goal, easily articulated and comprehended.  Every single Patriot must risk his life, his fortune, and his sacred honor to achieve the goal.

What is the goal? 

Respect for the Founding Documents of the republic. 

That is all.  We must demand that when we defeat those who seek Socialism and worse, we will elect people to offices based on the methods outlined in the Constitution.  Those people will serve, faithfully, within the bounds of the Constitution as intended by our Founders, Framers, and every soul who struggled to help defeat the British.

Nothing fancy.  Our goal must not be to re-invent the wheel.  Personally, I am convinced that no group of men and women today could write a Constitution better than the one we have.  Of course we have evolved to embody that all men possess equal opportunity, as was the will of the Founders and Framers, though the political realities of the day demanded less-than-ideal solutions for blacks and women.

The states are free and independent.  The Federal Government is tasked with limited responsibilities.  Our Economy is a Free Market, unencumbered with devices such as the Fed and paper money.  No state may pass a law countering the Natural and Innate Rights of Americans.  Americans say anything they wish, to whom they wish.  They may do so while armed, concealed and otherwise, no matter where they may be in this country.  They may associate with anyone they choose, and they may not associate with anyone they choose to ignore.  They are once again secure in their persons from "Stop & Frisk" silliness.  Taxes are left to the Constitutional limits of excise and tariff (and States that choose to tax)

Gun Control applies to all Government Employees.

If, in our struggles to return America to her proper place in the world of Men, we Patriots focus on the return of the Constitution and the ideals embodied in it by our Founders and Framers, we will have armed ourselves with the most noble justification for our actions.

It's the Constitution, Stupid!

Later columns will explore tradecraft, doctrine, strategy, tactics, weapons, targeting the cogs of power, and the other matters of vital importance to the Patriot.


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: 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, 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

Conservative Victory: Defeating Obama's Radic...

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!


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.
