Kill coal, then what?

Kill coal, then what?
Boom Boom – Out Go The Lights:
And the home of the brave:
Thanks be to Gaia for the ascension of the Lightbringer, who has healed us all at last:
Watch Publius eviscerate the Article V “false friends” and understand why the statists and their stooges are pushing so hard:
As some corrupt Chicago politician once said:
Punch back twice as hard.
Understand that these people despise you and your values.
And that they will not stop until you are destroyed.
It’s what’s coming.

You’ll even see him mentioned in this arcane but eminently useful read, titled “Security and Coordination In A Clandestine Organization”.
He is also an influence here; I recommend this for cascade resilience in underground organizations:
Esoteric but insightful.
Focus and resilience are two primary factors to come out on top in conflict in self-learning mechanisms such as undergrounds and guerrilla forces.

You Constitutionalists remember:
Juan Martín Díez sends, via this classic:
“…But Napoleon’s famous maxim, ‘the whole secret of the art of war lies in making oneself the master of the communications’, is truer than ever and the lines of supply, on which [vehicles] rely for fuel, constitute the Achilles’ heel of all [vehicular] forces. To harass and army’s lines of communication is to paralyse its moral strength; to destroy its means of intercommunication-by which orders and reports pass-is to paralyse the sensory connection between brain and body. The destruction of radio stations and telegraph installations makes an [army] deaf and dumb…”
Attack the PD motorpools, repeater sites, and follow with night letters to garages, gas stations, and radio repair businesses.
Don’t fight the MRAPs.
For use against you.
The Bad People believe they are untouchable.
Things will need to get much worse than now before people will get more serious.
On this thread from Tom Baugh:
Oathkeepers is learning from its past experiences and is becoming more effective at each engagement in its role as a FreeFor PR arm.
Don’t like the word PR? Well, the simple fact is that OK is a political, mindspace outfit. It is NOT a militia, nor does it have a military role, and if it, as an umbrella organization, tried to do both it would succeed at neither. The Ferguson (http://starvingthemonkeys.com/articles/OathkeepersDefendFerguson.html) defense is a great example of how they adjusted from previous mistakes to make that a PR win by combining the best mix of national and local assets. And, if they can do a good enough job with their PR role, the military side of things will keep gathering dust in the closet.
Fine by me, even if it means I don’t get to participate in their thing.
As a note for the newbies, Stewart Rhodes of the Oathkeepers wouldn’t piss on me to put me out if I was on fire, nor would he, because of my associations and stated objectives, want me within a hundred miles of any of their activities, and has, without reservation and in public, distanced himself from yours truly, individually.
In the past, I have had specific, objective criticisms, which they have now addressed, not as any deliberate reaction to my input, but as a refinement of their place in the FreeFor complex. What is more important to me is that Oathkeepers, after a few bumpy years, is now doing important work along its axis, especially among, and with, the rank-and-file membership, and deserves my support, and the support of anyone I can rally to their cause, completely independent of whether they might rally to mine.
Via Captain Capitalism.
But at least their ignorance is matched by their inflated senses of achievement and entitlement!
Detailed AARs to follow, but a few key points:
– Many thanks to all who participated
– Special thanks to those who tried to get through on HF; my Buckmaster 7-bander antenna was just too damned low; that will not be repeated
– The OpPlan had too many freqs for the available staff; another key lesson
– Alt comms made the day
– Our 2m net control did yeoman’s work on making that mode the most successful of the day
– Thanks again to all
