Bracken Sends

Just over the transom:

Dear Enemies Trilogy readers,

In a minute I’m sending out my first message about Operation Enemies Foreign And Domestic.

Please take a few minutes to read it, and if you want to join the op, let’s roll.

UPDATE 0859 EST 23 FEB 2012:

Operation “Enemies Foreign And Domestic”

First Communiqué: D-Day Minus Seven

Want to join a beat-up old ex-Navy SEAL, ocean sailor and book writer on a real-world covert cyber operation? I knew you did. So here’s the deal.

The idea is a national clandestine psyop, using my first novel as a vehicle. On next Thursday, March 1, Enemies Foreign And Domestic will be put into Amazon Kindle’s free library, for a period of up to five days.

Where EFAD’s free download promotion will be different from those of the thousands of fantasy/romance/vampire novels currently offered on Kindle, is that I’m simultaneously coordinating a mass plan to ensure that Operation EFAD goes hyper-viral on all constitutionally-oriented, freedom-loving, and Second Amendment websites and blogs at the same time.

Or on at least on as many as I can reach, and that is where you come in. There are literally hundreds of patriotic websites and blogs, and I can only reach a few. You can reach them all, every last one. And then some. More about this in the next communiqué on D Minus Six.

Despite its many limitations, Twitter will be useful for rapid tactical coordination. Operation Enemies Foreign And Domestic will be code-named #EFAD, in order to use Twitter as an always-open back channel for project updates and participant feedback. By typing #EFAD into the Twitter search field, you will find every new message related to the operation. I am @MattBracken48 on Twitter, I am Matt Bracken on Facebook, and I can be reached by email at steelcutter48 at

My goal is to make the spike in the number of free Kindle downloads for Enemies Foreign And Domestic so dramatic, that the national media will notice the passionate interest in this “dangerous and seditious” novel among the bitter clingers. But this is just the first step of a jiu-jitsu move. The light thrown on EFAD’s sudden nationwide surge in popularity will then be mirrored back onto the federal government’s most egregious usurpations and abuses, and on the mainstream media itself.

The idea is to force open a long overdue national conversation that the elite MSM very much wants to ignore. In large strokes, it is about our federal government morphing into a socialist tyranny before our eyes, a tyranny that is no longer soft, but getting harder with every passing month. Which is it to be: freedom, or tyranny?

The first step in forcing open this dialogue will be to explore the mainstream media’s active collusion in the cover-up of a scandal that is demonstrably orders of magnitude worse than the worst previous scandals, such as Watergate, which was “a third-rate burglary” where nobody was killed. To date, the DOJ’s Operation Fast And Furious has resulted in hundreds of murdered Mexicans and at least two dead U.S. federal agents. But instead of providing real news coverage, the MSM feeds America the pabulum of celebrity worship and an artificially-contrived debate about artificial birth control.

Imagine for a moment if President Nixon’s men, when called before the congressional committees invistigating the Watergate scandal, had provided nothing but thousands of pages of fully blacked-out paper. In effect, a giant, bored, “F—k you, what are you going to do about it?” to congress. Then imagine if the Washington Post, the New York Times and the television networks never mentioned Watergate or the hearings, except rarely, and then only to call the congressional investigators partisan hacks who were bent on destroying our beloved President Nixon.

Reverse the party polarity, jump forward through the time warp, and you have the current reality, where gangsters rule the federal government from the White House, the Fast And Furious congressional investigators are impotent buffoons, and the MSM is fully in on the cover-up. Nobody died at the Watergate, but recall what the hysterical 24-7 news coverage of the Watergate scandal and hearings accomplished: the end of a presidency, pronto. And an Attorney General in prison.

In the modern case of Operation Fast And Furious, hundreds of Mexicans were murdered as the result of a diabolically evil plot laid with the sole purpose of discrediting the Second Amendment, by deliberately funneling semi-automatic rifles to known drug cartel killers and assassins. Their goal was to bury our Right to Keep and Bear Arms beneath a mountain of Mexican corpses.

Folks, it doesn’t get much more evil than that.

And we know why these socialist dictators-in-waiting want us disarmed.

In 2012, the fictional premise of Enemies Foreign And Domestic, that a small clique of senior BATFE officials might conspire to arrange a mass shooting into a packed football stadium (also with the intention of discrediting our Right to Keep and Bear Arms), suddenly seems much less far-fetched.

So here’s the plan: on Thursday, March 1, we will engineer a stratospheric spike in the number of free Kindle downloads of Enemies Foreign And Domestic, and continue this operation for up to five days, the max allowable under the terms of the free download program. We will watch the MSM explore this sudden and frightening phenomenon erupting among the unwashed gun nuts and wild-eyed Constitution fanatics. When they predictably condemn EFAD for its fictional assassinations of government officials, and the rest of the story that they will pretend to find so abhorrent, we will shine their own spotlight right back on them, and yell Fast And Furious in their faces!

“Really? Enemies Foreign And Domestic is a terrorist manual? Well, I’ll see your fictional stadium massacre, and raise you a real-world conspiracy to murder hundreds of Mexicans. If you would ever cover the story, instead of covering it up!”

And this can all happen by getting a million or so gun owners and other freedom lovers to download EFAD, totally for free, beginning on March 1st. This will be a coordinated “time-on-target” fire mission. Further communiqués will be forthcoming from EFAD HQ. Search keyword #EFAD on Twitter for other operational updates, including links.

If you email me (steelcutter48 at, please include #EFAD somewhere in the subject line, so that I will know that you have been briefed to this point and are up to speed. And keep in mind that while you are all my patriotic friends and loyal readers, at various time I may know you by a screen name, a real name, a website name, or an email address name. It gets mighty confusing, so forgive me if I can’t keep all of your various handles straight.

Matt Bracken—Out.

  1. OK, I do ot have a Kindle so where can I download it too? Is there a program available for a laptop?


  2. Pingback: #EFAD – Go Bracken! | Deaconmatson's Blog

  3. Yes, there is a free Kindle app to download. And aside from Op’n EFAD, you will be able to download thousands of free titles from Kindle, including almost every old classic (out of copyright) that you can imagine, from the ancient Greeks to Moby Dick and beyond.

  4. I’ve shared this with about 1000 people, via Facebook and a private forum on which I’m an administrator.

    More if any of the above share it.

    I’ll do a reminder the day before.

  5. To reinforce, the free Kindle software is available in versions that run on PC, Macintosh, iPad, iPhone, smart phones running Android operating system, and probably more. And, of course, on the Kindle machines too.

  6. Mr. Bracken: Will you follow in the future with FOREIGN ENEMIES AND TRAITORS? After I read that novel, the agenda of the globalists and their useful idiot Kenyan puppet became as clear as glass.

  7. Pat, I will be putting out a daily communique leading up to D-day, March 1. Intermediate updates I’ll post on Facebook and Twitter at #EFAD. Please include #EFAD in any Facebook friend requests, so I’ll know you are part of the covert Operation EFAD Army.

  9. I just shared this with several of my 2A groups on Facebook

  10. JM, I am only putting EFAD into the “Kindle Select” program for now. This allows anybody in “Kindle Prime” to download books in “select” for free. It also allows authors/publishers to put their “select” program titles into the free promo deal for up to 5 days out of everny 90. But one serious downside of putting titles in “select” is that you are guaranteeing mass-piracy and loss of control of the work. So for now, I’m just putting EFAD into select.

  11. I’ve got all 4 (Castigo on Kindle), and will definately get this Op passed around. Should be a very nice spike. Breaking up the MSM logjam would be major.

  12. Who is the audience Bracken is trying to convince/move with this publicity? The same audience of voters who have voted for bigger government for 50 years? They will see fast and furious as evidence that big government is doing gun control to keep them safe from the ‘terrorists’ and ‘illegal immigrants stealing their jobs’. They’ve voted for these policies all these years because they wanted them.

    Yes, Virginia, there really are Bad People in the world. 90% of German adults voted to make Hitler dictator, and they were Bad People for doing so. The majority of US voters are Bad People. Dear reader, you will not achieve liberty until you accept that voting majorities are usually Bad and invent some plan to counter that.

      Because the masses are idiots, we small band of patriots need suffer?
      Unless we see a great die-off soon, we will become the proverbial dodo bird ourselves, thanks to our stupid prole neighbors. They don’t know the difference between slavery and security. Seeing 1,000,000 fedcops patrolling the streets keeps them safe from ‘terrorists’! And gives them a warm fuzzy feeling too. The perfect thing for an emasculated society.
      Just remember folks, vote NRA and Republican, and all will be saved!!! A public service reminder from Faux News and the NRA.

        “Because the masses are idiots”

        They aren’t idiots – they are voting intelligently as individuals. They vote to maximize their share of free stuff from the government teat, and to spread the load as wide as possible, thereby minizming their proportionate share of the bill. Yes, that comes with some cost in liberty, but that cost is largely at the margins, and mostly in connection with liberties they have no real interest in utilizing. On an individual level, Leviathan provides them with more benefit than burden, so why would they ever willingly step away from that? Leviathan offers the average person food, shelter, entertainment, and more, and it doesn’t ask for that much (on paper). The liberty movement offers them nothing (at least nothing tangible), and its members often insult them at every turn. Not really the best recruiting strategy ever….

        Boy, I guess I won’t use bad words anymore.
        I need to remind myself that there are intellectuals who read this too.

    • Counter-Anonymous

      Well, I guess us non-intellectuals will just have to be satisfied that Idiocracy ( will be our future-vision. Either is plausible, and it’s not going to be pretty either way.

  13. WOOOTTTTT . . . count me in.
    I am a huge Matt Bracken fan and will be join the spyops with glee (sounds so gaye!! . . hahaha).
    I will post on my own FB page, as well as all other forums I am a member of.

  14. Great idea. posted

  15. D/Led two of your Kindle books so far, including EFAD. Got Castigo Cay, also. Was going after the other two in the trilogy (wanna make them free, too?). This is a great idea, and I’ll push it on my blog with the link as soon s you put it on the “KIndle free” area.

    Now I only wish that Mike would get “Absolved” in print. You guys are gonna get blamed for a “Turner Diaries” outbreak. And I DO hope that the regime gets the hint.

    Lock and load!

  16. You’d never know how long I’ve wanted to read Matt’s novels, held back only by being a po’boy. Thank you, Matt, for this extraordinary opportunity.
    I’m on board.

  17. I will download and post on my blog

  18. Went to Kindle and unless you join Amazon Prime it is a $6,99 charge. Is there a link????

  19. Thanks to all who pointed me in the right direction on downloading the Kindle Software. I prefere reading paper copies of books and already have the book but will download it and pass the word around.

  21. Shared on Twitter and FB. I have the Trilogy and CC (Autographed!). Read them twice – so far. (Got a crush on Ms. Bardiwell, fellow Virginian). Glad to help!

  22. Even ancient PowerPC Macintosh computers can read Kindle e-books using the Amazon “cloud” e-reader, when they can’t use the Kindle Simulator App.

    “no charge” is a very good price.

  23. WV/VA forum on has been notified, millerized out

  24. No kindle app to download for a linux desktop operating system. That’s going to leave out a lot of us. But I’ll pass the word anyway.
