A Message To Young Patriots

Greeting From A Fellow Patriot,

Throughout my existence, it has always been uppermost within the furthest reaches of my mind that certain civil liberties were endeavored to be trampled upon by seditionists within the fabric of Ameri-can society. A group of individuals and corporate entities that covertly sought to dismantle the foundation of all that this nation was built upon. To trample upon the sacred constitution that which laid waste and bare the lives of so many of our brethren, to wit the sacrifice of those that gave their everything and all—to a cause much greater than themselves.

From the Lexington Green to our present battles in the Mideast territories, patriots of America entered into harms way with unparallel thought of self; yet unselfishly giving all that they espouse upon their own declaration of freedom against imperial adventurism at the hand of totalitarians that seek to bring down this nation and its way of life.

Our lives have been untouched for over 200 years, insofar as would be categorized as internal strife and revolutionary acts of guerilla warfare. Yet, there exists within this great reclamation of our con-stitutional rights, a certain rogue ideology that further enumerates that warfare is required in order to secure and solidify the principals upon the United States Constitution. An exodus from the realties that brought Americans out from under the yoke and leash of British imperial servitude. A journey into the violence filled world of war within our own borders—Americans against Americans.

I submit that revolution is both a right, and a sacred duty to every American that resides within our borders. Consequently I submit that a revolution would change the face of America and it’s zealous political agenda—but at a steep cost that far exceeds what America’s forefathers could have envisioned during their struggles. I submit that our society, our world, and our country has evolved from those days of muskets and bayonet charges, into a militaristic society that embarks upon wholesale destruction of life without pause or regard for the long-term ramifications thereof. Our nation’s moth-ers have wept and despaired for far to long upon this revolutionary principal.

With utter dismay I have witnessed the obsessive nature of a giant beast arising from the snake pit in our nation’s capitol. A pit of vipers brandishing forked-tongues that deceive the populace with their charm and pompous polished ideologies. This awakening beast feeds upon it’s own unchecked growth, hoping to claim as it’s own, the very lives and souls of its countrymen. But absent from the moral-istic fiber that so intertwines the society of America. Instead, this beast reaches out with it’s many tentacles to wrap itself among the lives of those it swore to serve and protect, and failing to do so, em-barks upon a devious glorification of itself, and seeks to shield and insulated itself from the wrath of those that are cognizant of it’s miserable failings.

I have stood on the sidelines for a great portion of my adult life, watching across the vast horizons for a sign that would bring this epic struggle onto my doorway. At times I would learn or recognize that certain events could be the precursor of that which many so feared, and others desired. The second revolution that topples the pretentious undermining vermin working against America’s founding prin-cipals.

I hear the rumblings of discontent from all walks of life, from nearly every sector, and all speak the same language of distain and malice against the beast arisen. Even then, there are many within, that actively seek to justify a war by weakening the beast through a persisted attack against the system so despised by so many. A war that they claim is both justified and victory capable within our grasp—that we must be the propagators that fire the first angry shot—thereby creating the perfect conditions conducive to further propagation that ushers in a second revolutionary war.

My friends and patriots—that is not the way, at the present time. Do not clamor for war—for the price might very well be your own children and kin’s blood that you offer. Say nothing of your own blood and lives; for a blood debt will be owed by all that tread too quickly and foolishly into this foray. Now is not the time for revolutionary acts that pit each against the other. The time for that must not be on our hands, nor will it be upon our blood. Leave that blood debt to the cronies of the beast—let them taste their own blood first.

A new war must be undertaken—a new methodology that battles from within the beast usurper. We must tear off the mask of anonymity from those hide from our wrath and piety. No more can these petty administrators be allowed to seek or hold elected positions within our political machine. They must be purged as a bad rash must be purged from an infants derriere. These socialist insects must be identified and brought into the light of public opinion—then banished from public servitude forever. America needs not another war, for we have always been at war throughout our history, as our cemeteries will so attest. We must first fight this coming battle with our political weapons—our combined and unified voices that thunder and echo across the plains of America.

Voices that shake the very steps of the national capitol, causing those inside to gaze furtively through its many windows in fear of what builds upon the streets of America.

That is true rebellion, that is true revolutionary tactics—and the cost isn’t forthwith as steep as Americans killing other Americans. I submit that our course must be as such. That we must restrain our an-gered rage, before it commits us onto the path of blood-letting and violence. For that must not be allowed to happen unless there is no other choice, until the choice is taken from us, and until the beast rises up in violence against humanity. Only then can we tread upon this path with God’s justification and mankind’s sympathies—for anything less than that would be anarchy that leads to our own doom.

Teach not angered retaliation to your children and their children—abstain from harboring mal-content hatred for a unjust system, when the unjustness lays upon the foreheads of those responsible for the beast’s awakening—for the beast’s appetite for power and wealth far re-moves itself from the eyes of God, and foolishly believes itself above God’s wrath and judg-ment.

Sharpen your wits as you would sharpen your battle knives. Razor sharp minds incorporated and united among the far-flung brethren of our cause will damage more than ten thousands knives in a single stroke. For the beast fears not our knives; yet it shuns and hides within its own hypocrisies against the rushing tide of disenfranchised angry voices.

Lest you forget; maintain your readiness both intrinsically and extrinsically. Keep company with those that have crossed the lines of illusionary propaganda to arise in defiance of the beast’s agenda. Shake hands upon the altar of kinship among the brethren that fly the flag of glory in the face of these adversities—for that is what the beast utterly fears and despises, thus make itself weak.

For who among us would be named less than a true patriot, if by action and singularity of mind—he so challenged the beast’s growing blood lust with not a clenched fist—but an open hand that points a shameful accusing finger–calling out the beast’s in its reproachful appe-tite; admonishing those tentacles that sought to appease their own greedy hunger at the cost of our enslavement and subjugation thereof. None; none upon the face of this earth can lay fault or blame at the feet of those that undertake to sheath their knives in the name of ad-dress and grievances, for that is the way the beast can be dismantled in its entirely without obliging the debt of blood inherent. Let us seek a remedy such as this, instead of killing the sons and daughters of America in order to propagate further political discord—for anything other than that feeds the sustenance of the beast, and nourishes its insatiable hunger ever-more. This we cannot more so allow.

Hold close to you heart the innocence of your youth, and clench your fist upon the hilt of your battle knives—but release them for the moment to ponder a world rife with the foul stench of blood spilled at our hands—a stench arising from the slaughtered children of our brethren and kinsmen.

In conclusion; I offer this as a means to an end. That the scales and balance of justice weigh our actions in the coming years. That our cause remain both vigilant and deliberate, and that our actions be honorable and steadfast in the face of this epic struggle for our national identity. I pray that our action exemplify those of America’s forefathers in their struggle against the beast arisen—and that our resul-tant struggles bequeath our children’s children a country basking in the light of democracy and freedom, and a nation of citizens that love their country and fear not their government as we do this day.

Survival: What it’s really like

The Pioneer Bug Out Bag

Survival: What it’s really like

 Franke Schein – April 28th, 2010

No matter what you’ve ever heard, or that you’ve ever read—survival out in the bush is a bitch!

 Many of my friends that claim to be survivalist have never really tested themselves. What they have done is spend a boatload of money on gear and supplies thinking that’s all they will need to make it through any adverse situation.

 Uh-Huh—sure thing Budro….

 The reality is that having gear does not make a survivalist. Anybody can buy gear, but true survivalism represents far more than acquiring a Bug Out Bag—it encompasses a wide range of primitive survival skills, tactical knowledge and experience, as well as having actually taken the time to hone those skills to perfection.

 One of the most basic skills that a survivalist can learn is the art of making fire when there are no matches. It’s not just good enough to read a book and know how to do it—you must be comfortable at constructing a “Fire Bow”, and building a fire from scratch. Fire is the most critical aspect of primitive survival skills. Without a fire, you are basically left out in the cold, and trying to fill your belly with grubs, snails, and berries. That’s not a good deal unless it’s forced on you.

 In my personal opinion the following skills are paramount to a survivalist:

 Primitive Fire Making

Shelter Construction

Primitive Water Purification

Small Game Traps & Snares

Animal and Human Tracking

Weather Prediction

Edible Plant Recognition

Smoking & Curing Wild Game

Primitive Herbal Remedies & Methods

Primitive Weapons & Tools Manufacturing

 These are the skills that will get you through any situation, even those situations that leave you without so much as a knife. That to me is the ultimate survival scenario. It’s one thing to get lost out in the woods, it’s a totally other situation when you have to escape and evade, or the situation is forced upon you by outside influences.

 So what’s it really like out there?

 It rains when you least want it to, or least expect it…

The going uphill is rougher than you ever thought…

The mosquitoes have quadrupled in size and appetite…

You can’t find the wild edible plants because its late in the season…

That cute little waterproof match case wasn’t really waterproof after all…

The batteries in your GPS corroded in the rain and stopped working altogether…

That expensive Cabella’s Rain suit just started leaking because your tore another hole in the shoulder…

Those Power bars and Beef Jerky just didn’t fill you up like you first thought they would…

Your rifle and pistol are covered in dirt and rust…

Your didn’t pack enough toilet paper, and now you’re wondering which expensive pants to cut up…

The fire won’t stay lit because it’s raining really hard…

Smoke won’t keep the bugs away from you while you’re eating…

You spent $350.00 on a decent pair of boots—but both of your heels have formed painful blisters…

That small cut on your right hand is starting to get infected—and you are worried about it…

You wake up in the morning to frost on the ground-and your sleeping bag is a summer bag…

It starts snowing in the middle of the night, and your high up in the mountains with no snowshoes…

You’ve just ran out of food because a 1000-Lb Grizzly Bear took it from you…

You’ve been spotted by four heavily armed survivalist—your pack weighs 50 Lbs-you can’t run…

You cross a bridge and get ambushed on the other side…

A tornado rips through the area that you’ve set up camp in…

That stream you want to cross is full of poisonous snakes and the water is brown…

There’s a massive forest wind being fueled by the wind and its heading your way…

 I can tell you from experience that things out in the bush country are rarely what you expect them to be. There’s always something that goes wrong, breaks, gets wet, falls from your pack, or stops working altogether. It’s called “Murphy’s law” and Murphy is a evil bastard that preys on the unsuspecting survivalist.

 I tried to keep warm in sleeping bags that were soaked because that “waterproof” cover wasn’t really waterproof—it was “Water resistant”.

 I’ve bought disposable lighters for my pack that didn’t work when I needed to make a fire and was counting on them.

 Boots that are supposed to be the very best become worthless when I’ve snagged and broken the boot laces. You quickly learn to keep extra laces in the pack.

 Batteries have failed when I needed them the most, as have countless so called “survival gear” that I was hoping would fill a void.

 All in all; I had to learn these lesson the hard way. It’s never been easy for me, as all of my “survival quests” that I have undertaken have been in very remote primitive settings such as the high snow capped mounts, the arid hot desert, and the steaming southern jungles.

 Each of these environments have taught me that technology is great—but it very well might leave you empty handed when you least expect it. It’s always better to learn basic primitive survival skills first. It also taught me that in order to survive, you must constantly test yourself in the most extreme conditions that are available to you.

 Sometimes it easy to fantasize about what you will do in a given survival situation. But let me tell you from personal experience that it’s rare for things to happen like we think they will. What is required is that you spend a lot of time in the most remote, the most inhospitable places that you can find—and start learning primitive skills before you will actually need them to save your life.

 One of the ways that I used, was to wait for the absolutely worse weather to hit the area—the kind that has all the news stations going nuts, and the weather alert scanner running non-stop. That’s when I would head out in the woods with minimal gear and hunker down in the bushes. You’d be surprised that the things flowing through your mind when faced with a severe winter storm, or a tornado that has touched down, or a severe drought—when you are near helpless during these events.

 The things about survivalism is this: with all of the preparations that you undertake, are you giving enough time and effort to the fact that you might not be alone out there. What I mean is the simple fact that you will probably have your spouse and kids tagging along. That changes the entire perspective of both the Bug out bag, and your approach to survival when TSHTF.

 While my children were very young—4-6 years old, I took each of them out into the woods during rainstorms, winter storms, and whatever mother nature threw at us. Each of my kids was taught that being wet and cold is miserable—but it’s survivable too. They were taught how to purify water with just wood ashes, sand, and pebbles, as well as how to build small animal snares to catch dinner.

 It paid off tremendously so far, as my kids now teach other kids basic survival skills, firearms, escape and evasion, and sometimes mixed martial arts. Skills that might one day prove useful to each of them, but let’s hope that they never have to use those skills in the first place.

 Learn some primitive skills—get beyond the rush to fill your pack with gear. In the long run it will benefit you and those around you.

Syria, Iran arm Hezbollah with improved missiles: is War With Israel Likely Soon?

Modern Day Nazi Salute

WASHINGTON (AFP) – US Defense Secretary Robert Gates on Tuesday accused Iran and Syria of arming Hezbollah with increasingly sophisticated rockets and missiles, saying the militia’s arsenal undermined stability in the region.

“Syria and Iran are providing Hezbollah with rockets and missiles of ever-increasing capability,” Gates said at a joint news conference with his Israeli counterpart, Ehud Barak.

“And we’re at a point now, where Hezbollah has far more rockets and missiles than most governments in the world, and this is obviously destabilizing for the whole region and we’re watching it very carefully.”

Gates did not say if Syria was supplying Hezbollah with Scud missiles as Israel has alleged.

Barak voiced serious concern over Syria’s support for Hezbollah but did not repeat the allegation that it was providing Scuds to the Lebanese Shiite militia.

Damascus has vehemently rejected the charge.

Barak said Syria was arming Hezbollah with “weapons systems that can turn or disrupt the very delicate balance in Lebanon.”

He added: “We do not intend to provoke any kind of a major collision in Lebanon or vis-a-vis Syria.”

Last week, the most senior Syrian diplomat in Washington, Deputy Chief of Mission Zouheir Jabbour, was summoned to the State Department to review what the United States called “Syria’s provocative behavior concerning the potential transfer of arms to Hezbollah.”

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Mouallem said it was regrettable that the United States had accepted Israel’s accusations against Damascus as true.

The Scud allegations come as the United States steps up dialogue with Syria, and US lawmakers have seized upon the accusations to argue against any rapprochement between Washington and Damascus.

Both Gates and Barak said their countries agreed about the threat posed by Iran’s nuclear program, with the Israeli defense minister endorsing Washington’s efforts to secure fresh sanctions against Tehran.

But he said Israel wanted to see sanctions with a time limit.

“We expect the sanctions to be effective and to be limited in time so we will be able to judge …what kind of results stem from the sanctions regime,” Barack said.

Amid recent tensions between the United States and Israel, both men stressed the strength of the bond between the two allies.

Gates said “our defense relationship is stronger than ever, to the mutual benefit of both nations.”

The US defense secretary also sought to clarify how the American military views the effect of the stalled Middle East peace process.

Asked about recent congressional testimony from General David Petraeus, head of US Central Command, Gates said the United States viewed the lack of progress in the peace process as providing “political ammunition to our adversaries in the Middle East and in the region.”

He said “progress in this arena will enable us not only to perhaps get others to support the peace process, but also support us in our efforts to try and impose effective sanctions against Iran.”

But he said that “General Petraeus did not say that the lack of progress in the peace process is costing American lives.”

SWAT Raids Out Of Control

America’s nightly news reports are awash with stories of horrible crimes, murder, kidnapping, and a host of other atrocious violence. Graphic images and startling eye witness accounts inundate the airwaves and printing presses-hypnotizing it’s viewers and readers alike.

 We are shown a shadowy world of street crime, gang violence, and indiscriminate killing-but what if the crimes and killings are being committed by police officers themselves?

Even more angering is the reality that Police SWAT teams have conducted Para-military raids at schools, forcing children of all ages to lay face down, all the while being threatened by gun toting, guard dog wielding police officers. Officers that point load weapons into children’s faces, yelling obscenities at them, invariably traumatizing some of these students for life.

In 2003, police in Goose Creek, South Carolina, conducted a school wide commando-style raid on Stratford High School. Police lined students face down on the floor at gunpoint while officers searched their lockers and persons for drugs. Some were handcuffed. Police dogs sniffed students, lockers, and backpacks. The incident made national news and was captured on videotape by the school’s security cameras. It’s difficult to see why such tactics were necessary.

Police found no illegal drugs, and the school was described in media reports as having one of the best academic reputations in the state.

Of 146 no-knock raids conducted in Denver in 1999,  only 49 produced charges of any kind. And of those,  just 2 resulted in prison time for the targets of the raids.

 

In many of these cases, the home owner was awakened in the idle of the night by the sounds of somebody breaking into their home. It’s a natural instinct to reach for a weapon, especially if the home has been burglarized before, or the home is located in a high crime area.

While courts have been extremely deferential to police who fire on innocent civilians, they’ve been far less forgiving of citizens—even completely innocent citizens—who fire at police who have mistakenly raided their homes.

 

There are documented examples where the home owner, thinking that he was been invaded by criminals, armed himself, and was immediately shot and killed by a fusillade of automatic weapons fire at the hands of SWAT officers. It wasn’t enough to simply shoot the victim, they poured a volley of bullets into innocent home owner.

 

A Miami SWAT team fired 122 rounds into the home of 73-year-old Richard Brown. Police found no drugs in Brown’s home.

 

Judges, Prosecutors, and the legal community alike, oftentimes praise the work of these jackbooted thugs that violate the sanctity of private property-giving little thought to the consequences of America’s 4th Amendment. Even when the evidence clearly illustrates that police officers acted recklessly, endangered lives, and without reasonable cause-illegally broke into a house, killing the home owner in the process-they turned a blind eye, allowing these para-military raids to go unchecked. Rarely have any of the police officers involved in these premeditated murders been charged or convicted for their crimes.

 Scott Bryant. On April 17, 1995, police in Dodge County, Wisconsin, forcefully entered the mobile home of Scott Bryant after finding traces of marijuana in his garbage. The officers would later say they knocked and announced before entering, but neighbors who witnessed the raid say police entered without doing either. Moments later, Detective Robert Neuman shot an unarmed Bryant in the chest, killing him. Bryant’s eight-year old son was asleep in the next room. Neuman told investigators he “can’t remember pulling the trigger.332 Dodge County sheriff Stephen Fitzgerald compared the shooting to a hunting accident.

 Every case cited above can be evidenced at {  Radley Balko: Overkill: The Rise of Para-Military Raids in America [ http://www.cato.org/raidmap. }

This book is one of the most prolific publications in exposing the abuse and corruption of Police Departments and their administrators. Essentially, most police departments are utilizing SWAT Teams to supplement their own funding, under the pretext of Forfeiture and Seizure laws.

 Admittedly; SWAT teams have their uses. They are in fact the first line of defense when it comes to potential terrorist attacks on the streets, and they certainly are a force to be reckoned with in hostage situations. But, the ever growing use of SWAT as a means to execute traffic warrants, minor drug infractions, and other misdemeanor offenses, is a judicial travesty that must be addressed.

 Judges that issue “No-Knock” warrants without first determining the necessity of the raid itself, and by failing to conduct a thorough analysis of probable cause of the raid-should be held officially responsible and accountable.

 Prosecutors that refuse to challenge the legality of such raids, or that conduct impromptu investigation that never fully disclose all the pertinent facts, should immediately be removed from their position.

SWAT teams, their commanders, and the Department that employs them, should be held accountable by a committee of non-police citizen whose job entails investigating every SWAT raid, determining if such raid was actually necessary, legal, and accomplished the result that it was supposed to. If the raid resulted in the death of a civilian, the officers participating in the raid should be placed on administrative leave, every facet of the operation investigated and where applicable, sent to prison for their actions. Dismissing these rouge officers is no longer an option, as the rest of society is expected to be punished by prison terms, sometimes the death sentence, so should Police officers that break cross the line and murder its citizens.

 Each SWAT raid should be videotaped by a non-departmental entity from the planning phase, through the actual execution of the operation. Evidence, intelligence data, and raid philosophy should be scrutinized under strict guidelines that preclude any violation of excessive force, intimidation, unlawful entry, and housebreaking.

 In each case where a police officer points a gun at a minor child, handcuffs a child, or restrains a child by force of restrains, intimidation, or actions that could harm the child-that officer should be immediately charged with child neglect, child endangerment, and where applicable-be dismissed, and incarcerated like everyone else guilty of these crimes.

 America cannot allow Police Departments, and local Prosecutors office to judge whether a raid was illegal, or a SWAT Team acted outside of its authority. Time after time, they have proven their own biases against the very people that they swore to “Protect and Serve”. The investigations must be carried out by civilian committees, watchdog groups, and the citizen themselves.

 In a country that prides itself on freedom, these para-military raids are nothing short of a well orchestrated militarization of local Police Departments. A trend that has shown America that para-military raids are home invasions that have resulted in the unwarranted deaths and murder of innocent people. A grievous situation that cannot be lowed to exists

 Police officers conducting these raids should be held accountable for their actions. No longer can the “Men In Blue´ run amok in the land of the free, acting like “the Men in Black” and not be held to the same exacting standards that citizens are.
