The Real Deal
by Hellesponte & Kerodin
December 13, 2010

Some men will never get closer to a deathfight than the keyboard.

For those of you who anticipate a Ruckus I commend to you James G over at Death Valley Magazine.  The man is a Professional Operator and there is considerable real-world information for your edification available on his site.

Whether you anticipate a 3 Meter War, or 300, or a combination, there is no better preparation than experience.  If you do not have first-hand experience in such conflict, or your experience is limited, the next best thing is to seek out men and women who have been there and done that, and learn as much as possible.

If you do not enter a Ruckus with the proper mindset, you will lose.  Martial skills, whether empty hand or double-tapping with your P35, are useless if you are not mentally in the fight.

Have you started a martial art yet?  Have you enrolled your spouse?  You do not want your First Contact to be for real, where second place is dead.  You'll want to take a few elbows and knees in a serious training environment before squaring up to a man who is trying to kill you.  If your wife has never been handled roughly, do her a favor and make it happen in realistic training so that she does not get stunned into the shock of inaction if you suddenly have a few Zombies in the living room who need the snot stomped out of them.

Krav Maga.  Six months.  Train hard.

...or...

Box.  Six months.  Train hard.

...or...

Whatever fighting art you can find.  The goal is not so much mastering technique as it is conditioning your psyche to hit and be hit without getting a brain cramp and locking up.

OK, I'll stop preaching the martial arts topic.

In a 3 meter fight, one of your most effective options is to close the gap and get very, very close to your enemy.  Getting close is counter-intuitive, as most people want distance from the men trying to kill you.  The simple act of closing the gap will unsettle most of your enemies, giving you the first edge.  Secondly, his buddies will be hesitant to bust caps if you are securely in his grill, for fear of hitting their guy.  Third, it is hard to miss with your double-tap if you jam the muzzle in his torso or neck before pulling the trigger.

Get comfortable being close with your enemies.  Bump bodies, use your shoulders and knees, push and shove, grab and hold and guide him where you want him, stealing his balance, press the muzzle of your weapon into him and fire.  Let his body take the slugs and the muzzle blast.  As he begins to fold, push through him and right into the face of the next man in the stack.  With a pistol in your strong hand and a battle knife in your weak hand, you are much, much more than they want to handle in a routine Patriot raid for $60k a year.

Repeat until you are dead.

One of the tactics you will want to cultivate for use in conflict is the element of surprise.  Your enemies have certain expectations about how you will act, based on their general experience in similar situations coupled with whatever specific intel they may have about you.  If you can confuddle him, upset his expectations, there will be a lag time as his brain is forced to leave the paradigm and consider potentials. 

This opportunity will most often be very brief, sometimes as little as a portion of a second.  But in a deathfight when you are close enough to smell his adrenaline, a portion of a second can be all the opening you need to separate his Soul from the husk.  Use surprise when you can.  Of course, you will want to prepare the ground long before the conflict if possible.  Build in your surprises, such as a hidden stairwell that leads you to high ground, so you can take advantage with calculated intent, rather than relying purely on the circumstances of the moment. 

A trap door in an unlikely place in your floor can allow you a Houdini-esque escape at a critical moment.  The ability to literally drop a section of floor from under the feet of a Zombie coming into your home will SNAFU their paradigm.

Your brain is your most lethal weapon.

Make sure you disengage the safety.

The First Lady is doing her part to ensure that the republic is subjugated to banana status, with all decisions taken in DC.

This brief video very clearly articulates Us versus Them.

Our thanks to Breitbart.

Flashback: Are You Serious?!

 

Yes, Madam Speaker...we are serious.

TL Davis is coming to press the point.  We are sending a few new faces from the Right side of the aisle to help you understand, beginning the 21st of January.  We'll send more next election, too - providing you folks don't manage to implode the economy before 2012.

It is my most sincere hope that our Political Class comes to understand just how serious we are...before we have to stop speaking with our mouths.

Our thanks to CNS News for the audio.

Rosie says Oprah's not Gay:

Does anyone care?


 

 

 

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...


 

The Constitutionalist

The Constitutionalist, written by TL Davis

 


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.

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.

III Percent Patriots
A book examining the philosophical and practical challenges facing Constitutional Restoration, and a few of the key personalities
in the III Percent Movement.
By Hellesponte & Kerodin


Mr. Kerodin is an Author, Columnist, Speaker & Speech Writer, and Patriot.

"This is Washington DC, my friend - when you play at a certain level in this town, you will be elected, or convicted.  Sometimes, both.  The order of events is irrelevant." - Kerodin

"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!
