OpSec: Snitches
by Hellesponte & Kerodin
November 1, 2010

In a Zero Sum universe, how many people would you trust standing behind you with a pistol or blade and one million dollars in gold?

This is not a How To lesson for anyone who is misbehaving.  If you are into anything that is morally wrong, I hope you get caught, gutted and eat dirt before an innocent gets hurt...and in the now classic words of Morgan K Freeberg at WashingtonReb, I hope a polar bear eats you!

Every Patriot who is, or thinks he may be on the radar, needs to approach every interaction with new people cautiously.  And, you must manage every established relationship with an awareness that every human being will, almost always, behave in a manner that is consistent with their own interests.

The important thing to recognize when dealing with OpFor Infiltration Operations...or that it need not be one million dollars at stake to provide sufficient motivation for a punk to make a run at you, or for an ally to betray you.  The prize could be your woman, or depending upon the circumstances, a can of peaches.  It could also be as simple as a plea deal on the table for some player who has been compromised by OpFor.

It also may be that you have been drawn into a group that is covertly headed by an agent of your enemies, set up and supported just to see who shows up!  The goal is to identify & make a list of Patriots for later use...

The rules of Total War are simple: There are no rules. 

You will live or you will die.

The Other Side will use any deceit, any False Flag, any device or deception, to make you vulnerable, compromised, impotent and dead.

If you are a Patriot who believes that it is coming, and it will be ugly, you'd better already be playing by these rules. 

Right Now.

Look at your relationships.  Who is in your life?  With whom do you chat online?  To what blogs do you post comments?Is everyone who claims to be your ally really motivated by the same passions that drive your decisions?  How do you know

You can not begin to account for all of the potential self interest motivations of the men and women around you.

Don't try.

Instead, put yourself in prudent and defensible positions with as few trusted allies as possible.  Imagine yourself at the center of a series of concentric circles.  The only person in the same circle as yourself, in a ruthless world, is you.  If you choose to include a spouse and children, ok.  The next ring outward would be siblings and parents...yours, not necessarily the spouse's!

Get it?

If you must make yourself vulnerable, consider the Risk/Reward equation, consider the person you are letting into your defenses, and be ready to defend yourself.  But do not fool yourself: You can rarely ever know what is truly in another man's heart.

From an OpSec perspective, it is the single Operator who is safest from the predations of the genetic filth known as snitches.  If you are working alone, there is no way to be infiltrated.

Depending on the circumstances of it, and your local realities, or your personal preferences, you may opt for a Tribe.  Of course, Tribes can range in size from a small family unit to a village, or larger.

The easiest snitch to identify is the new guy who approaches you from nowhere.  Next is the person you have known for a while who suddenly takes a deeper interest in you and your business.  The new boyfriend or girlfriend hanging around one of your kids needs a set of eyes-on for several reasons.  Your spouse's new boss, or co-worker, hairdresser or friend.  Tougher is the member of your near or inner circle who gets flipped, or becomes disillusioned with you for some reason.

The hardest snitch to identify is the one you chose to approach on your own.  You think that person is X, because he says all the things that an X should say, curses at all the right people, agitates and calls for actions that you'd expect from an X.  This might be a mayor in a post-it setting, or a self-anointed General or Leader, a Sheriff...

But what do you really know about this person?  Really?  Who does she owe?  What are her true principles?  Is she a born-again rebel to the cause?  Whether Tigers or Leopards, stripes or spots, they don't change...not 180 degrees. 

Where does her money come from? 

Many a follower of television Evangelists has ended up disappointed as the true nature of their hero became known.

Trust your instincts, but only if your instincts are suspicious of everything.  When your instincts tell you that X is ok...doubt yourself and keep an eye on X.  Controlled paranoia is your ally.

Total War. 

No rules. 

Second place is death. 

The moment you are dead or out of action, every person you cherish is vulnerable to the predations of wicked men.

It is a Zero Sum game.

Defending against a snitch begins with common sense privacy.  Get in the habit of keeping your business to yourself.  Tweeting your toilet habits is the wrong direction.

Become a jerk regarding your business and obfuscate on your opinions.  The reflex answer to questions such as What are you doing after work or What is your favorite color is: Why the hell do you want to know?

Be certain to control the flow of information.  Ensure that those closest to you are just as greedy with private information.  Your children probably have the Facebook disease, with few inhibitions regarding details.  Handle that.

It is standard procedure to come at you with what you like.

If you like girls, be wary of the saucy little Betty who is suddenly interested in your pudgy, 45 year old smile.  If you like to be strong, they will cower.  If you like to be King, they will worship. 

Whatever your vice or need, they'll try to exploit it. 

Want an XYZ Widget?  Well, the snitch knows a guy who knows a guy...

When it comes to snitches, routine active measures should be employed to test your security.  Suspect someone?  Whisper a juicy detail for their ears only, and see what happens.

What should you do with an identified snitch?  That is entirely dependent upon circumstances and goals.  Keep in mind that the only human creature more filthy than a snitch is a traitor to one's nation.  You can never trust a snitch, except to trust that he will be true first to himself.

In some cases the immediate removal of the snitch is warranted.  Buh-bye!

In some cases you may use the snitch to misdirect his handlers.  Feed him some bad information.  Keep in mind that this activity has an expiration date.  A snitch who continually feeds bad information back up the line will either be removed as ineffective, or his handlers will know he's been compromised.  It is often best to burn your snitch on one action, then cut him loose.  For instance, if you are planning an action at X, let the snitch pass information about Y, giving you room to operate. 

Your disposition is the key to avoiding the perils of snitches.  Your guard must always be up.  Your suspicion must always be set to High.  Trust, but verify...everything

That is the hard part, keeping yourself switched On.

If you become mentally lazy, you become vulnerable.

Begin right now.  Examine every single person that you consider to be a part of your it sphere, from your spouse, to the guys you consider to be part of your Tribe, to the blogs you follow, to the guy who sells you ammunition.  Examine each and every person, and judge each person based on one criterion: In a Zero Sum universe, would you trust this person behind your back with a knife?  Before you put that person in the Yes category, ask yourself Why you trust him.  How has he proven himself to you? 

Scratch the surface and go deep.

You only need to slip once, and they win.

You die.


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.

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.  If you are trying to get their attention and you have not yet caught a Federal case, it's still amateur hour.

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.  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.

Then your options are put on the table: 2 if you take the deal, or 20 if you fight...and we'll add a Conspiracy 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.

Do not make the mistake of thinking you are a tough guy just because they have not yet chosen to come for you...

Every Patriot in America should read the book The Tyranny of Good Intentions: How Prosecutors and Bureaucrats Are Trampling the Constitution in the Name of Justice  written by Paul Craig Roberts.

I just ordered The Constitutionalist by TL Davis.  I read the first chapter online, and decided I needed the entire book.

Check out the site, and think about buying a copy.

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.

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!
