Restoration & Genocide
by Hellesponte & Kerodin

January 14, 2011

The word friend is not one I use very often.

Never have.  I have too much self respect to use the word just to make someone else feel better.  I have lived a unique life, filled with the pursuit of the martial and living by my own code that has very little place for typical male adventures of chasing women and drinking with the guys.  How many men or women in your daily circle of human contact feel as passionately about the republic as do you?

Meeting people with my interests and passions in the average world is not a common occurrence.  I've always preferred my own company.  My wife and I click on 99 out of 100 topics.  I still have not found that 1 where we don't see eye-to-eye, but I'm leaving the option open.

Interesting that it is with the internet that I have found a few people with whom I have enough in common that I find myself using the word friend.  I met TL in person a few weeks ago when he was in town prepping for the Siege.  Most others I have not yet met in person.  I was looking forward to meeting Bill at the Siege, but he's changed plans.

TL and Bill are on a short list of folks I have met online who would need but ask and I'd head in their direction if they needed help.  I'd go to Alaska, and Georgia in a heartbeat.  There are a few others, though I have no idea where you live.

One, I call Brother.  Not sure where he lives these days, but I'd be there to offer any help I could manage if he needed it.  I think this man and I have, in many ways, walked through life on parallel tracks.

What does any of this have to do with Restoration?

Forget III Percent.  It simply doesn't exist.  The mentality exists, to be sure, but not the quantity.  As I was discussing with the man I now call my Brother, any fight for Restoration will not be a fight of groups.  It will be individuals, and damned few at that, who decide one day that they have had enough, and move into their AO and start a Ruckus.

Will they inspire enough people to follow their lead, or not.

Most likely, they will be successfully defined as Domestic Terrorists and snitched out by the slaves of the nation who will endure any insult and injury so long as their status quo is not interrupted. 

When I use the phrase those who would be our Masters do you understand that I am not merely speaking of your Countrymen who would like to continue using politics to lord over the masses?  I also speak of the tyrants of the world who will invade CONUS and butcher every man and boy child if they ever thought they could pull it off.

Don't think for a single moment that they can't pull it off.

The only thing on this planet standing between the Kremlin and the Forbidden City and world domination is the American people.  Not the American Government, for a strong case could be made that our Political Class would bend knee and permit the genocide of our Countrymen if they were offered the right incentive.  A strong case could be made that we are witnessing, right now, the ground being prepared for precisely such a genocide.

Do you really think this Government would retaliate with a full nuclear spread across China if Los Angeles were suddenly turned into a sea of glass by one of those contrails witnessed a few months ago? 



Do you think we'd take Moscow off the map in the face of a Chem/Bio attack that killed hundreds of millions, even if we could prove they released it?

Our Government has neither the spine or the incentive.  They agree more with the ideology of our enemies than the ideology of our history.

Our Political Class is dominated by Marxists, and those who are willing to suckle Marx's teat.

As you consider Restoration, Patriots, I hope you are looking beyond merely the County Cop and potential ATF Stack.  I hope you have the mental ability to understand how many chapters in a book of history about our world represent genocides of tens of millions.

A genocide of the American people would only be one more chapter of a history book written in Chinese or Russian, with but a paragraph or two allotted to the Traitors in our midst who permitted it to happen.

Restoration is not merely about the death of Liberty.

It is about the death of us all.

Resist.  Reinforce.

Communism: Ground Gained

We too often fail to cut through the PC misdirection offered by our enemies within, so let us remind everyone right now: Liberalism is Communism in a cloak.

Below are the 10 points laid out by Marx.

Consider them and consider where the nation is today in reference to each.

Then, consider for each of the points which of our political parties advocate for policies and programs to achieve the stated goals.

1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of  land to public purposes.

2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.

5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.

6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State.

7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

8. Equal liability of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.

9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the populace over the country.

10. Free education for all children in public schools.

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.


WESTERN RIFLE SHOOTERS

Every day I strongly recommend everyone who comes to my site: Take a moment and visit Concerned American at Western Rifle Shooters.  Have you taken a good look at the time and effort that has been invested there to build such a utilitarian collection of practical knowledge? There is no wasted effort: Every resource is useful, and worth your time to investigate.

He also posts a few topics of the day, but he has a unique twist that is supported by a knack of finding relevant material from which one can learn.  The other day he posted videos from an old experiment that must be watched and understood by every person who hopes to survive whatever may come our way.  Milgram.  Click it.  Study it.  Burn it into your psyche and reflexes...here.

He does not fall into the blog trap of posting a story, then shaking his head...his 2 cents are worth more than most...

Kerodin Glossary

Ruckus: This is when the conflict between Left and Right devolves into the realm of the physical.  Government may or may not be involved.

Verbal Ruckus: Discussions between Left and Right that have dropped the facade of civility, but not yet crossed the physical barrier.  Once they put their hands on you, welcome to a genuine Ruckus.

It: A Ruckus.  It may be started from any number of potential events. When it is on, the Ruckus is on.  The most important consideration when it is on: There are no rules.

Left:
We use this word as the easiest label for the enemies of the Constitution, including: Collectivists, Liberals, Progressives, RINO's, Establishment Republicans, the Political Class, Lobbyists, Global Warming peddlers, and more...

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.

Patriots.

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.

Sam

Every single law on the books, ultimately, is enforced with the muzzle of a weapon.  It does not matter if the charge is failing to pay your property tax or jay walking, hosting a yard sale without a town permit, or murder, if you resist the punishment in any of these cases, Government will escalate until you yield or...the final step results
in the discharge of firearms. 
You forget this at your peril.

"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!
