Lawson Sends: Alexander Solzhenitsyn And The Collectivist Killer Archetype

From one of the authors of A Failure Of Civility:

Read the words attributed last year to perhaps the most important and influential person in President Obama’s life. She’s been a mentor to Obama and his wife for years. No decision is made by Obama without it first being approved by Valerie Jarrett…

“After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.”

– Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor to President Barack Hussein Obama

The above words come from a woman who is most likely “the power behind the throne” in the Obama administration. Obama makes no move without her approval. She’s a committed communist and a very intelligent, angry and vindictive woman.

You need to understand what is in store for you if you are an American who believes in our Founding Father’s Constitution, gun rights, individual liberties and freedom… and if America is totally lost to the control of people like Jarrett who will push to disarm us violently if necessary.

For those who haven’t read Matt Bracken’s essay and watched the video:

‘Democide: Socialism, Tyranny, Guns and Freedom’

…Concerned American has posted it again… read Matt’s essay and watch his video.

It’s critical to know what’s at stake besides just our ideals…

The authorities of many ideologies have employed brutal killers to deal with their ‘competition’ and opposition. But the following is an example of a particularly cold and calculating collectivist killer who orchestrated the mass murder shown in Matt Bracken’s video. Matt Bracken speaks for the souls of those Poles who can no longer speak for themselves.

A look at this killer will also give you a glimpse into the mentality of Marxists, socialists, communists by whatever name you use to describe… collectivists. We focus on collectivism as this is the ideology that is the greatest threat and the ideology that is presently being forced onto Americans… crammed down our throats.

Collectivists are intent on exterminating all competition to their doctrine.

The collectivists had many in their ranks like the following in-humane and vicious scumbag who doesn’t even rank amongst the human species. There are people out there in America like the following freak of nature who will become apparent if collectivists disarm the citizenry and gain total control of America. Every society has people like this… even ours.

Do not make the mistake of ‘Projecting your values on collectivists.’ Don’t look at them as people who have the same values as you. When they come for you… they will not care how much education you have struggled and sacrificed for and scrimped to obtain in your hopes to better yourself and society… they will not care how lawful you have been… you will not be able to reason with them. They will only understand that you have been selected for removal from the society they intend to create.

If you are intent on protecting yourself and not dying as a fool you must confront them not as if they’re people… but as inanimate objects… as they see you. Meet them head on just as you would face a machine intent on mindlessly exterminating you. DO NOT project your values on them and think they share the compassion of your character.

Do not be defeated by these powers before the battle begins. Collectivists are not super beings… they bleed like all people. Stand up for your neighbors… or you’ll be standing alone when they come for you.

If you’re going to go out, make your actions count. Fighting and bleeding out is better than standing handcuffed at the back of a truck, in a line at the buses or at the boxcars waiting to be loaded and taken to your fate.

Never surrender your firearms… never go quietly…

Read about the devil, Vasili Blokhin:

…Born to a Russian peasant family in 1895, as a young man he quickly earned a reputation for “chernaya rabota”, or “black work”, while serving in the Tsarist army during World War I- gaining recognition from Stalin himself for his covert assassinations, torture, and executions. Blokhin quickly rose through the ranks of Russia’s secret police at the time—the NKVD—eventually becoming the head of the Kommandatura department.

The members of the department were approved by Stalin and took orders directly from him. Under the guise of other positions, Vasili Blokhin was officially a commandant of a prison- the department carried out black work missions specific to furthering Stalin’s cause. Blokhin oversaw many mass executions and executed several high-profile individuals himself, including Mikhail Tukachevsky, Marshal of the Soviet Union, and two of the former NKVD chiefs under whom he had previously served.

But Blokhin’s most infamous deed was performed at the bloody Katyn Massacre. In 1939, just over two weeks after Germany invaded Poland, Soviet forces entered the eastern side of Poland. Though they didn’t officially declare war, they captured over 20,000 Polish officers and detained them in Soviet prison camps. On March 5, 1940, Stalin himself ordered the executions of all Polish officers, who would then be dumped in mass graves.

Over a twenty-eight day period, Vasili Blokhin personally performed over 7000 of these Polish executions at Katyn. Usually, the executions would take place from dusk til dawn, with Blokhin preferring to work at night for these types of tasks. Blokhin would work nearly uninterrupted each night, reportedly killing a prisoner about every three minutes, averaging around 300 executions per night.

The executions would go like this: after signing identification papers, officers were led with their arms bound into a small room that was equipped with soundproofed walls, a drain, a hose, and a door or hatch- it was a room designed for executions. Forced to their knees, a member of the Kommandatura would deliver a single shot to the back of the prisoners’ heads, killing them instantly. Their bodies would be dragged through the second door or hatch in the ceiling, the room would be hosed down, and the next prisoner would be brought in.

Blokhin favoured the 7.65 mm Walther PPK pistol, a gun which was being used for all the mass executions. For Blokhin, it didn’t have as much of a kickback as other guns, which meant less pain in his wrist after performing hundreds of executions every day. The pistols also rarely misfired, which meant the victims could be killed with one shot nearly every time someone pulled the trigger. For the Soviet government, the pistols were favoured because they were the make carried by German officers. In the event that the mass graves were discovered, the bodies would contain bullets from a German-style pistol and the Soviets could deny responsibility for the deaths.

On April 27, 1940, Blokhin was rewarded with the Order of the Red Banner for carrying out this amazingly bloody organized mass killing. The Order was traditionally given to military personnel who displayed “exceptional courage, self-denial, and valour during combat”. He was given the order secretly in order to protect the secret nature of the killings…

If you don’t believe people like this exist in America…

… and if you don’t think events like this are possible in America… you need to get out more often.

Then go into your bedroom, close the door and lie down on your bed. Get comfortable. Close your eyes… concentrate for a moment and imagine yourself as one of the victims of this killer.

Imagine yourself having no concept of what would be your fate thinking that this was routine prisoner processing as you are led step by step through the “Leninist Room” on into the execution room to meet steely eyed Blokhin… and for a split second… the terror that you feel as you’re pushed face first against a log wall and a small pistol is pressed to the back of your head… your brain is turned to jelly before it can even process the sound of the pistol shot… and your world goes dark.

If you still have a difficult time imagining a person like Blokhin exists in America, how about our good doctor Gosnell of Philadelphia who has been snapping the necks of newborns for years like it was part of an assembly line. If an educated ‘doctor’ can do that to babies… imagine what they’ll be willing to do to you.

There will be plenty of volunteers to permanently remove you from the planet simply based on being told to do so… because that doctor is an example of the “Blohkins’” in America. Really… a woman gives birth to a baby that is left in a toilet. That baby instinctively swims desperately trying to survive… and then is “dispatched” by this type of person.

These people lie dormant and are the likes of the BTK killer, Jeffrey Dahmer and Ted Bundy who live quietly around you.

What creates this type of person? We might say first… that socialists are simply junior communists who have yet to come to fruition… to change into the calloused, dogma spewing and hardened people that they become. In this process they shed all decency and compassion as human beings.

They strive ruthlessly and robotically for their illusionary society and a necessary part of creating it is to completely remove all people who oppose it… even those who simply remind the new generation of collectivists of an alternate type of government and way of living… as compared to the new collectivist society. Simply not thinking like them condemns you as “The Competition.”

Ironically, once collectivists gain control and after they have eliminated all opposition to their control, this process of ‘securing the revolution’ requires collectivist leadership to also exterminate the “Old Guard” …those who put them in power. The Old Guard are removed because the society promised them by collectivist leadership and that they fought so desperately and frantically for never materializes… it turns out that it is just a mirage. This Old Guard has the capability to turn on the collectivist leadership and remove them from power… just as they put them in power.

Both of us have seen this type of ‘beast in the human’ as portrayed above in some of the third and fourth world potholes we’ve been in around the world… and we guarantee you that these people are also right your back yard. EVERY society has them and they just need the proper atmosphere in which to thrive… but most governments, societies and laws suppress their true nature.

The Kaytn massacre in Poland haunts us simply by the magnitude of its evil. The thought of it has never left either Author’s head since we first read accounts of it. This ‘Democide’ mass murder in Poland was of the government, military and religious leadership that opposed the Soviet communists as portrayed in Matt’s video.

These were people that the communists knew they would not be able to ‘reeducate.’ If these people remained alive they would be a threat to the Soviet’s plans to change Poland into a communist State. The same parallel applies to those of us who believe in the Framer’s Constitution, individual rights, Second Amendment rights and America in some basic form of its creation. These Americans will be a threat to the collectivists and will be singled out to be the new target for a present day ‘Democide.’

If collectivists should succeed in totally controlling us… the Kaytn Forest will come to America… especially if Americans are disarmed or refuse to stand up for each other. Make no mistake… the collectivists will not have the inclination nor will they spend resources on trying to re-educate those who they consider “Incorrigible” people. They will exterminate them. They will work them to death, simply execute them or let disease and lack of medicines run their course amongst them.

The groundwork for the ‘American Blokhins’ to rise up here has been laid. Valerie Jarrett is thick as thieves with Bill Ayers of Matt’s video. Do an Internet search of Bill Ayers and the FBI transcripts from the ‘wire’ the FBI’s informant was wearing that Matt has in his video… frightening.

Bill Ayers, jackass, ghost writer, puke and obama pajama’s best friend has already stated in discussions… discussions devoid of emotion and in a cold and calculating tone held with a number of other highly educated “Ivy League” people… that “25 million Americans who cannot be reeducated will have to be exterminated” when his collectivists take control of the United States.

Obama virtually grew up in the front room of Ayer’s house in Chicago. Ayers was one of Obama’s primary mentors and Ayers was allegedly the ‘ghost writer’ of Obama’s ‘tear jerker’ books. That’s how close Ayers is to the power in America. Ayers flashes that disarming smile and says he’s a communist… “with a small ‘c’” …an impossibility for a fraud of his caliber.

Along with the likes of Ayers and Jarrett come the cold and calculating “Blohkins’” …restless for Supreme State Authority to give them the green light for their ‘talents’ to be put to work.

The recent defeat of the gun ban means only one thing… it’s not over… it’s JUST STARTING. Each of us needs to make certain that America never gets to be a disarmed populace desperately using “axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand” as Alexander Solzhenitsyn describes in “Gulag Archipelago” that was their only choice of weapons. The communists immediately confiscated all firearms from the Soviet people after taking control of Russia… “for the safety of the people.”

Put yourself… as a believer in the Founding Father’s vision of the United States Constitution, or as a gun owner, gun rights believer or individual freedoms believer… as a dissident… into the world of the following people not that long ago…

These Dissidents… shopkeepers, doctors, railroad workers, university professors, artists, lawyers, carpenters, store clerks, those caught with firearms and just common housewives… were condemned and labeled as ‘convicts’ and ‘criminals’ by the communists.

The number is estimated at 60 million… maybe 70 million… no one knows or longer cares. Frozen bodies were buried in icy ground… graves hacked out during blizzards by those prisoners who would soon be joining them.

Some names weren’t recorded… some lists of the dead were misplaced and lost to eternity. It’s a past that no one cares about much except to name a road in the frozen wastes of Siberia as “The Road of Bones.” Mute testimony to the millions killed building it and who are buried under its surface.

Most were convicted just for their previous occupation, past activities and beliefs or maybe just by a simple verbal statement they made critical of the State… but heard by the wrong people.

These ‘’convicts’ were sent out in forced labor gangs into 40 degree below zero weather, barely clothed. They slowly starved, froze to death or were executed, worked to death or died of numerous diseases in the Siberian forced labor camps… or were tortured to death by guards for their amusement.

The entire essence and being, of over 300 years of a country… was gone within a few years. From this icy hell on earth, one of the few survivors… Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Nobel Prize winner for Literature… recalls how all of them lamented and mourned their lack of preparation and resistance to the Soviet take-over. Quoting Solzhenitsyn from his Nobel Prize winning book “Gulag Archipelago” these words…

“…And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Soviet Security Operative (communist secret police who were gradually arresting those Russian people who resisted communism), when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family?”

“Or, if during periods of mass arrests… people had not simply sat there in their lairs, filled with terror at every bang on the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush (against these secret policemen) of a half dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?”

Do you understand now?

  1. Mr. Lawson,

    That’s an outstanding summary of the situation. Unfortunately, we have known all that for more decades than I care to count.

    Don’t you think it is time to actually do something?

  2. Don’t you think it is time to actually do something?

    Sure. What, where and when?

    • Uh, I could help you with that.

      Do you happen to have a platoon?


      • That’s the problem, isn’t it, Alan.

        Platoon, company, battalion etc….. No have.

        Army of One, that’s me.

        But the question was rhetorical, calling upon Mr. CP to put up or, well, you know.

        • I know what you’re sayin’ brah.

          I am slowly pulling a squad together though.

          We’re going to Max’s place in March. I got an opening. Wanna go?

          • I wish I could, Alan, and thank you. I’ll not list the reasons. One man.s reasons are another man’s idea of excuses but mine are numerous and pretty insurmountable for me.

            I’d be happy to meet you and Max and take his instruction. There’s just no way at this time. Let me know how it goes…..

  3. As has been featured here before;

    Socialist Terminators. They will not stop. Ever.

    So, what are you going to do about it?

  4. just read any 100 pages of the gulag, its 1800 pages; and you’ll see that the reasons for being detained have no reasoning and the brutalities are unmeasureable. the usa has a serious financial and social fall coming, only question is, is it past the point to where a usa gulag is imminent.

  5. That’s the most chilling thing I’ve ever read.

  6. Andren Essen

    There are many such executive and administrative policies with people who truly believe they are doing what they are doing for the greater good, so what of it. The candle of the only nation that could have withstood such an endeavor was taken from within. The US is built on economic policies that primarily are supplicant to what is termed the first corporate welfare theorem. Understanding the First welfare theorem is also a trip to understand the two ideologies of communism and capitalism as an enmeshed outcome. They are ultimately no different, Antonio Gramsci describes the method well as he does the means. Both have conversations with economic policies and both have their respective chosen members or those that do not qualify often described as a disease for eradication.

    The principle of economics is a complex one, it is multidisciplinary but driven by futures and goals. It is also a science that requires the denaturization of humans on an incredible industrial scale. A scale unseen in history but in many presentations paralleling many former cultures outcomes on a macro scale.

    Perhaps for reasons better yet to be fully understood by the consumer policy makers decisions. Most consumers actually care little and sadly understand even less a direct result of economic policies and their outcome incentives.

    We are in some quarters led to believe that the impending doom and gloom merchants or science philosophies contribute to what are known as economic coercive policies in the West. The state is the very vehicle necessary to hedge such bets. While In the rest of the world the experiment on hard democide continues with a view that anything beyond the east or West coast to the general US population is no mans land and occupied by heathens.

    The UN in its regional presentations has already had conversations with the millions of the fated unborn as a matter of ethical policy not a moral one, even from way back to WWII. In fact the economic strategy and methodology is researched and discussed by the bankers and its affiliated or funded research.

    Economic research derived policies discuss all these things and the plain history of Democide. This is available at a website called Powerkills, in addition to discussing the various models, methods and type of state that endorse those doctrines.

    There are fundamentally two types of democide, hard and soft. The US practices soft democide on it’s own populations. The increasing use of weapons which kill and leave no trace for example tazers are well tested as I assume are others including microwave, sound and biological technologies. A death to be brutal to US citizens requires the spattering of blood and blowy uppy things otherwise it is not news. Which is what has been alleged to have been said of Rumsfeld’s statement, when analyzing the quagmire of Afghanistan In summary ‘We can’t be seen blowing up rocks, the public won’t buy it, we need to be blowing up something the US public likes and get them value for money.

    Softening the population to be inert to suffering of others is stage one, using females and children is stage two. Both of these methods are interchangeable, but the two lead to the third. The US is beyond these stages as we increasingly no longer question the new god in town, with many religious, scientific and governmental organizations just as in the past doing their duty for the state without question and more importantly as a duty for earning their federally funded opinions enacted on the willing public.

    More often these Governmental endorsed organizations are financed on the federal reserves nipple, even if, as they have been doing for decades of unprofitable operations beyond even common sense. An entirely UnAmerican and unaccountable venture, to what end ?. They are all over the place and it would appear endorsed by the elective franchise and that is not by the vast majority of US munchkins.

    Sadly I believe that the world is led by ideological doogniks on the economic jugular of global finances. These central bankers determine the fate of nations these days, as do their respective policies. The US is replete with third generation refugees from the Easts former communist blocs in executive and administrative capacities who are still carrying out the business of their forebears

    Do visit Professor R.J. Rummel’s site to learn what real democide is, just look up Powerkills and the Guys name. There are lots of analysis and history.

    Do look at the research of the federal banking organizations archives and find works related to policy making, or the research on populations themselves. For those who have a wit and understanding of Mathematical economic concepts it will be enlightening, for those who try, and do not give up trying to understand seek wisdom. For those who cannot get past the first few paragraphs’ just continue what you are doing and best at.

    As a member of the consumer herd it is in your interests to understand better what economic policies are all about. It is further up to many to understand that asymmetric policy warfare is not your old school stand up type of engagement. One of the most profound doctrines and practices of warfare is ‘no prisoners or witnesses’. There is good reason for this. The other in active communal style theaters is separating men from their families, and women and children from men. Get it.? or at least think.

  7. Josh A. Kruschke

    Are we to become just like them, no better than them, to fight on their terms? Do we realy think we will build something better after based on a foundation treating them as inhuman as they would treat us.

    You want to know how you get to gas chambers, and Gulags and Josef Mengele? You first must other them and think of them as inhuman. You must feel justified to do so.

    I will fight on my terms not theirs. I will turn their use of their tactics against them. If we are seen as no better than them, why side with us and not them? How will we keep the moral highground by put them agaist a wall a shooting them, just because they would us? Do we treat all that disagree the same way?

    “He did it first and Bobby’s doing it” are excuses children tell their parents to justify bad behaviour.

    Pity them, but do not hate them. Remember to become cold and callous is to risk becoming them. 

    Terror only works on the weak of will. Those that don’t really want to fight. All others it will strengthen their resolve & make them feel more justified, “See I was right all along.”

    How did terror work out for Osama Bin Laden. Did 9/11 cow us or piss us off?

    As a line in the sand; if they start coming for us, we will need to fight back with everything we have without hesitation.

    But let us not help them, by giving them a reason to crack down before we are ready. Continue using the time to prepare. You’re going to be to busy after and wish you had more time.

    I’m not sure why some seem to be in a rush to get things started.

    • Kruschke….still believe in one should bend over and grab their ankles, eh ? BTW….try spellcheck. It won’t help with your discombobulated grammar but, it would be a start.

      • “a reason to crack down” ??? As if they need a Reason or need to justify their actions in any civil, rational manner to anyone, least of all you?

        This rush to get things started is because the sooner we get started the sooner the decay is halted and the repair begins. I hate to break this to you Krushke, but the cold hard reality is that it’s going to take killing. Win, lose, draw, otherwise… killing is in the recipe. Sane, reasoned discourse is not. Just plain old violence, with a whole lot more of that “fake halloween blood” as seen in the earlier airport shooter photos. More than you would care to believe, but that’s the bitch kitty. Your belief is not not required, it’s the lowest common denominator. And if those pricks decide to up and divide by zero, that’s what it will be on the bottom line, your best and noble intentions mean di di.

        Pound away on those keyboards, lard asses. You know who you are! The slow dance is ending, the lights are going to brighten and the freakin disco is about to crank up. The sooner the better, we’ve waited far too long already and that’s why we’re in this damn mess.

        • that was meant for Josh, not you Dan… I’m having a little spell with tech this morning.

          • Mr. Mayor….thank you for your gracious consideration of me. However, I was aware of who your intended recipient was for your remarks.

            BTW….I can’t agree with your posted comments more.
            Oh….and a bit off topic…..please consider going to Gun Owners of America’s website ( and see the offering by them of the movie “AGENDA”. It is currently available for viewing without cost. Please watch the movie. It will provide you with more information for the fight.

        • Josh A. Kruschke

          At what fuck point did I say that killing wouldn’t be involved.

          Just try not to lose soul.


          You asked me the other day, if I really thought I needed to push this message on here.

          From the responses the answer is, Yes more than ever.

          • Or, alternatively, you are becoming more and more irrelevant.

            Think of a Social Democrat in 1918 Russia.

            Or 1934 Germany.

            Or a freedom-supporter in contemporary FUSA.

            Not being cruel; just asking you to consider who is out of step:


            • Josh A. Kruschke

              Me being out of step with the group is not in question. You do realize that in the anology it was the minority that felt they were in right to be out of step with the rest of the larger group.


              Funny thing is I wasn’t trying to talk anyone out of anything. It’s just a warning to be careful you don’t do anything you want be able to live with yourself after. A gas chamber is a gad chamber doesn’t matter which side uses it.

              And for individualist we sure get tribal, and the only difference between a tribe and a state is scale.

      • Josh A. Kruschke

        Dan III,

        Ad Hominem…. Are you  13? I get the feeling that you still think we are in middle school where this kind of response was common.

        At no point have said do nothing. Unless you have unlimited time and resources you can’t fight every battle. Plus the law of adverages can catch up with you. Death is not glorious. It’s piss, blood and shit. It’s regret that you don’t get to tell your loved ones goodby or that you love them one last time.
        You need to be smart about what you do. If you’re killed, I sure you have in place plans to take care of your family, so it doesn’t mater if you go out in a blaze of glory. You must have this detail well in hand to have such cavalier attitude towards death.

        Dan have read ‘A falure of Civility’? The whole point of the book is how to protect yourself, family, freinds neighbors.

        Can you answer this question? What will happen to the twenty percent of admited socialist?

        Education camps teach them how to take care of themselves?

        Trials & executions?

        Purges, of the homeless into shelters. (For theirown goo )

        Walled off slums and barios?

        If you feel the need to give your life, sell it dearly.

        • Kruschke….sorry pal but, when you decide to start writing comments with something resembling maturity, I’ll consider entertaining myself by answering your questions. In the meantime, you need to go back to 2nd grade and learn how to spell simple words. Then,move up to 3rd grade for learning the rules of grammar. Suggestion….don’t go to a .gov school. Go to a private one.

          I’ve dealt with morons who are 20 years old and don’t know the answer is when multiplying 12×5. I’m certainly not interested in dealing with your immaturity and questionable intellect. As it is now I have some reservations about your common sense.

          Start using spell check….or go back to school.

    • ” Did 9/11 cow us or piss us off?”
      Uhm, let’s see – have you witnessed the herds at any US airport?

      Need any more examples?

      • Josh A. Kruschke

        Let no crises go to waste was not the point.

        Yes, we gave up liberty for perceived safety. How does this negate or support terror only works on the of week will?

        PS. Going to sleep now, up to long this morning, work nights, need sleep.

      Anything that does not fit the program is nullified, watch the news. What is marketed is insular and specific. As is the entire product of media and media enhanced social thinking engineering.

      The strangest and most innocent appearing weapon is the idiot box, it has a way of bypassing all morality, common sense or conscience, even entertainment or the quality of it. Malthus without an inkling of current day social tools described the method in a simple argument adopted by yesteryear industrialists. The goal was to provide states with a well spring of metrosexual workers who rent their way through life and woe unto them that cannot afford to pay their rent..

      I suggest people or consumers of the cool aid continue to keep focusing on the coerced and refined marketed target while ignore the puppet masters. There is method in madness. As for a foe, it would appear that no matter how intelligent or indoctrinated the position taken is. The criteria for qualification is as the educational systems output has created, effete individuals who are emotional cripples to the thinking of the magic serendipitous age of wonder through media. That would be the eighth grade school yard, particularly for males. The newer class of informant is an interesting one, the rewards are entirely based on that premise.

  8. Ironic that the “Terminator” turned out to be a raving Collectivist.

  9. Sucking Chest Wound

    The problem is is that you don’t know when it is coming. You could have a taillight out and wind up being NDAA’d to some hole in the ground. If you read this blog along with others, you are marked. The only thing to do is to never give up your weapon or be without one and to make taking you as costly as possible if the situation justifies it.

    • …and to organize.
      Is it time to be a credible threat yet?

    • Semper Fi, 0321

      Many have already said this, accept the fact you are already dead. But make them pay dearly for collecting the body.

      Just got in an argument on another blog with a apologist for the system, he trying to explain I have no morals because I wish ill on the Gestapo. Most of these guys are nothing but merit badge chasers; I’m a III%, I’m Tea Party, I’m an OathKeeper, etc, etc, but haven’t the heart for the fight. They sit on their massive collections of guns and tactical gear, and when the first bullet flies, run around screaming “wait, wait, that’s not right, you can’t do that….”
      Anything to come up with excuses on why it’s not the right time, or we don’t legally have the right to resist fedgov…. We’re pushing them into something we shouldn’t be doing,…… you know the list.
      A very few of us understand the fight is to be fast, hard and ruthless, the rest will die clutching their badges, reminders of the resistance movement that left them behind.

        Semper Fi,

        If this true what are you wating for. Your line to be crossed what ever that line is? You wating for cover of others? What was your excuse for not doing anything the last time one these incidents with bullets flying happened.

        Seems you where making excuse with the rest of them. Or was it just not the right time????

        • Semper Fi, 0321

          you’ve arrived here very late. We’ve had all these discussion with trolls before, we’ve all read the books like “A Failure of Civility”, and argued til we’re all blue in the face.
          I don’t need to prove my credentials to you, I’ve lived a fairly danger filled life already. Yes, I know what fear is, I live with that every time I go in the woods here. Last Wed. night I was elk hunting in the snow, walked up on a fresh set of huge grizzly tracks, a fresh gut pile nearby, right before dark and in the thickest of forest, but I dealt with it and got home safe. Until you’ve been there, you can’t understand how frightening something that simple can be. Hunting is like walking point, an ambush behind every tree here.
          The same with my daily life, I do not need to leave my home and travel hundreds of miles to go looking for trouble in some big city, trouble will find us all soon enough. But it’s knowing that you have the courage to stand up to whatever gets in your face, whenever, wherever, that make you able to deal with a life threatening circumstance, and that’s what the issue is about today. This constant whining about ethics and morality, when combat is staring you in the face that shows you are only looking for the next excuse, anything to delay the inevitable, over and over again, hoping it will go away. You choose to debate you way thru life, soon that won’t be an option.
          Lead, follow, or get the fuck out of the way.

        • Josh,
          Isn’t it true though that wating for the line to be crossed is the Christian thing I think that’s whats importent.

        • Sucking Chest Wound

          Its a bit unfair to jump on a guy like that. It can be time to act and also not time to act at the same time. Crazy. I know. But it is this way. And to jump all over some dude on here and basically call the man a coward is a little out of line in my unsolicited yet humble opinion.

          It was time to act about 100 years ago. Many would argue before that even. And with every day the need becomes more urgent.

          But… We cannot act first. Period. If the fight comes to us on individual levels, then so be it. Do what you have to do. A Ruby Ridge or Waco today would and probably will be the last straw. Do what you have to do. But as a whole, to just start the war before a flagrant act of violence upon the people would be suicide.

          The Feds have fired first. They have crossed lines in the sand that should have provoked a response from us. That is true. But the thumbsucking public doesnt know it. Not that we even need public support to a certain extent. But we would be in really bad shape for things to kick off now.

          It is a bad deal for us to have to wait. But it is even a worse deal to act before the proper time. We have to take one on the chin hard to have a response seem remotely justified. Sucks. But it be what it be.

          So, Semper Fi 0321 is most likely not some loud mouth coward. The guy was ranting about loud mouths. lol. He can say what he said and not have to run and go get himself killed immediately to be legit for the critics.

He ignored my suggestion. He continues to write like a flaming imbecile….poor spelling, poor grammar, very poor composition.

          Given JK’s fetish about having the moral high ground & fighting honorably, I wonder how he/similar ‘noble warriors’ would handle such as the NKVD, the Waffen SS, or Mao’s Red Guards. The latter would be particularly problematic for such ethical purists since the RGs were primarily children & especially so if they were unarmed. Imagine the spiritual consternation a ratpack assault by them would generate in the pseudo-Galahads & their terrible shock at the realization that their own virtuous code was abetting their ignominious demise.

          Perhaps it’s just my barbarous nature, but I don’t see how going out like that bestows the aura of holiness on the deceased. Nope, I’d rather be scorned by ‘decent’ folks like JK/similar for being alive & intact after rendering unto such murderous munchkins what they’d surely render unto me than be the dead object of their approval. Odd thing, SF, the latest episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead addressed this very subject & is well worth an eyeball by you/everyone else as it may help clarify things.

            If you truly believe that the ends justify the means join with the like of Christy, McCain and their ilk. It’s the easest lie to tell oneself, “I’ll just compromise my principles, just this once, for the greater good. There is no grey area.

                You are correct. My mistake.

                When a lot of people use honorably they mean fairly (that you have to give the other guy a chance), and that is how I readed it.

              • Josh A. Kruschke

                When living around people there has to be a reasonable expectation that the guy next to isn’t just going to kill you and take your stuff.

  10. All I know … the one who shoots first .. loses. Read the history of Lexington and Concord… or Ft. Sumpter .. or Pearl Harbor … most of the time . the one or group or country that shoots first .. loses. I keep thinking of the TV series Jericho … where a false flag event by the shadow government and corporate entities that fund it .. end up creating a further divided country under a type of fascist corporate control . .. in our own situation the shadow government .. the ‘continuity of government entities in place for decades have been ramping up since the end of the Cold War .. they have a plan .. and unless you play the same chess game and anticipate their moves . including understanding WHO and WHAT the enemy really is .. its not all about communists like Obama . its also about the entities that FUND HIM . if you do not understand THAT … you will lose. Any ,movement that challenges them will be significantly hurt if the TRUE nature of who the real enemies are is not understood. But HOW it’s all going to go down . I have some idea.. in any event I spend my time reading military tactics.. even the leadership and tactics of Joan of Arc .. William Wallace OR Gen. Giap .. are helpful . ALL three in their own way excellent commanders who knew how to fight a superior force with sometimes demoralized or rag tag troops ….use the weakness and superior weaponry against the enemy …. and win . or at least ensure the other side does .. in the end they lose because they become worn down. We can bitch and moan but it might be a very good idea to read as much about how THEY will operate .. it can be found in Army Training Manuals and on you tube if you have a mind to it. understand \how to use their own technical superiority against them. What I see happening even now .. you have a lot of various groups who can not .. or will not unite in common cause.. everyone has their OWN way of going about ‘fighting’ the enemy . and in that case .. the enemy will win. Happens every time . unless their can be a DROPPING of egos and competing plans.. the forces of liberty will bleed out .. Who fires the first shot .. will lose.. but once that is done .. as the Gladiator said .. on my command . unleash hell.

      That is not the way things are done these days. Why waste your resources when you can get your enemy to waste it’s own. Based on many opinions and the old come and get me or in my cold dead hand attitudes, I fear that the method is already in progress, and the die hards repeat history. The only thing left is politically correct harsh language and understanding possession in nine tenths of the law. The federal government owns and controls that very number. After all consider this, at least thirty percentile of the US population directly benefits by working for the government or associated contracts or franchises. Another 37% rely on the services that those thirty percent provide or administer. At least eight percent of the population is controlled directly by the judiciary in service of the incarceration and probate system. The welfare system, medical system and insurance industry is controlled entirely by the judiciary in place of government under a franchise in each state. What is left, as communities as the old thinkers understood them are gone by the wayside.

      Today’s America is not the apple pie of yesteryear that offered a family a future, along with its manicured lawns and 2.2 children and that is self evident by the tip in the balance of what constitutes a family today. These have been happily turned out by family court equity judges acting under policy and ideologies. Gone are the days of nuclear families, with social permutations that rekindling that old notion is still possible. It is not, the damage has already been done and will continue for generations. ‘Grey beard’ a recent science fiction novel by Brian Aldiss expounds one scenario. Where one nation becomes entirely Floridian with all the necessary tools. Can we base a future on the notions or ideations of people who really have grown up in a different world yet act to preserve a future that no longer exists.

      Today it is not just the Joe public husband working. It’s the Joe public husband and Jane public wife who work hard to make ends meet. That is not untypical of today’ US family. More than 60% are single parent matriarchal families now, divorces, remarriages, blended families and everything in between. And guess what: In ’96 the American workers despite productivity outshone the corporately loyal Japanese because of lowering wage costs by capita.

      Today family members who are working have pretty much doubled their hours spent slaving at their job every week, but they’re still not making enough. You can have all the education you want and a reasonable JOB which still really means you are just or almost one paycheck away from the street kerb, and your neighbors will probably help you get there. They don’t want the helpless on their doorstep, nor in their world views.

      Along with this orchestrated change in what constitutes a family, communities and income dynamics, adjusted wages are falling. We’re not making as much as our forebears did or have since about the late 70’s. The soviet union failed because it could not sustain its own economy by printing money like we do. It also failed for the lack of men it squandered for it’s own ideology. The females could not train men, even today the result is a drug and alcohol ridden social structure, a fate already determined for the indigenous Indian populations. A slow death and one not unfamiliar to the needs of the great central planners. Whom in stalinistic like fashion will swap spreadsheet numbers and move objects on maps, just like a war map. Who cares what the affects are, who comes and who goes, as long as the objective is reached, it is then considered successful and as one of our great leaders stated ‘ mission accomplished’. while wearing a six pack in their shorts to endorse the moment and woo the elective franchise by their virility. then to go off and kiss babies.

      As far as global strategies, we should consider that the Irish or Scottish experience in austerity programs even from medieval times is not a method to be repeated not dissimilar of the potato or food famines, or the causes of mass migrations, nor that of third world inhabitants who despite an abundance of food and arable resources, starve or are rendered helpless by commerce. Well certainly not enough that we should care or even consider the point..

    • Really…I wonder if the the Jews think they won against the Germans…I wonder if the Poles thought they won against Russia…I wonder if the Chinese thought they won against Mao…I could go on and on with more examples of those that fired first winning…We are not talking about armies against armies…We are talking about liberty standing up against tyranny…

Is it just me, or did you also note a tone of disingenuousness, more than a bit of uninformed certitude, & a remarkable lack of focus in her ‘manifesto’? Her signature statement seemed to me similar to ‘violence never solves anything’ in its automatic assumption of validity despite it being provably untrue. First it was that guy awhile back (can’t remember the name) who told C.A. to bite himself, then it’s Josh Kruschke & Ms. Alden.

      It is my proposition that your namesakes forebear, Nero was not as insane as claimed. After all the coin shaving to a value that made it worthless, wars and administrative costs in serving a very entitled and gregarious citizenship. He took an autocrats decision with guidance and torched his liabilities. Perhaps our enlightened masters do indeed need the natives to squander and squabble themselves into oblivion. The oldest political trick in the book is getting natives to fight among themselves,amintaining the clean hands doctrine. Apparently some of the natives even believe in the old school final solution with pride.

    When the ballon goes up my motto for dealing with collectivists will be: “Kill them all and let God sort them out.”

  14. Let me run this past you. Sorry for the length. Couldn’t condense it and have it still make sense.


    It’s all about ideas.

    Ideas are the precursors to behaviour.

    If I know the ideas that you carry in your head, I can confidently predict your behaviour in a given situation. The ideas that you carry, will determine whether you resist or submit. The ideas in your head are what shape your character; they are YOU. The meat and bone are relatively unimportant … only there to turn ideas into actions.

    Given the volatility within Western societies, you can see how it might be advantageous to predict the behaviour of neighbours, friends, policemen, soldiers and such-like.

    But, how to discover the ideas which they carry in their heads? There are only really two ways. We can infer from past behaviour; or, we can simply ask. (trusting that the respondent speak truly)

    “Oathkeepers” have made an attempt at doing this … by asking people to reaffirm their oaths to the Constitution. After all, the Constitution is just a set of ideas, documented in the form of a Contract. If you truly abide by the ideas within the Constitution, then we would expect there to be certain boundaries to your behaviour

    But, “Oathkeepers” adopts a somewhat passive stance. I would suggest that a more active stance be adopted. The internet affords us some great opportunities, if we can muster the tech skills to exploit them.

    Let’s suppose that we could construct an internet database into which you and I could formally attest our willingness to abide by the Constitution. It’d be like signing a Contract, binding all the signatories. So, I would sign this Contract, and provide my name and address; all of which information would be freely accessible.

    Now, my neighbours would be able to search the database and discover whether “the guy at number 28” holds similar beliefs to himself. If he finds that he does, then it might behove him to pay me a friendly visit.

    I’d suggest that the Constitution be used as a jumping-off point … despite its imperfections, …. because it will be hard for the PTB to openly oppose those who support it.

    Alternatively, I might search the database to discover whether “the policeman at number 19” holds any allegiance to those ideas. That could be useful information to have, in some scenarios.

    I’d argue that, anyone who fears to attest to such a document … because they fear for their jobs/pensions/whatever … has already shown his hand. If he won’t lift a “pen” in your defence, then he surely won’t lift a weapon. He is bought-and-paid-for, “a King’s man”.

    Clearly, the concept would be an open invitation to “pick your side”. You might decline to attest, but that would speak volumes, in itself.

    This strategy might meet the needs of the many whom I see asking, “What do we do? … how do we begin to resist?” Well, it seems to me that the very first act of resistance is to stand tall and say, “No”…. just as the Founders did when they rejected the governance of the King, with their Declaration

    Now, it may be that you can come up with some document or Contract which would serve better than the Constitution. I dunno. I’m just chucking out this idea to see whether it stimulates your brains.

    I suppose that you might fear the loss of anonymity … though Snowden’s revelations should tell you that your anonymity is already compromised. Anyone of ill intent, already knows you. Intimately. But, this might afford you the chance to identify them.

    • Andren Essen

      The acts of enablement nullify the Bill of rights or indepedence, but you can go and pay to look at the document you refer to. Apparently according to some it is manifestly organic and we may construe solar penumbra’s to enact new laws as a result of that reach. it would also pay to look at the original style of governance it endorsed. In as much as democracies are concerned, history reveals by studying the concept from whence it came in its true status. it is and always will be an idea, a mission statement. The original version from the Pax Logoma also known as the great Rhetra followed the same lines, as did the revolutions and social contracts of the French, the British and the last one for the US.

      So what did the original Greeks and particularly the Spartans and their slaves call this new way of thinking. To be politically correct and literal, they knew it as ‘Crooked speech’, in modern day terms if we knew what we were talking about we too would call it what it is ‘Bull shit’. Man has not changed much other than his technologies and neither has the belief in a democracy, it is an idea that never was.. When people talk of fair and equal and a chance for the lowest common denominator to determine the fate by the voting franchise of law, we should at that point have been arming ourselves. When they talk of these things it is one thing, when they bring them into law by statute or municipal law, we should have had lynching parties ready for those who would profit from such ventures at the expense at cost to their respective voting franchises or the very object they determine to help.

      Alas, we have the serendipitous thinker who believe we can turn clocks back or rewind. Democracy 3.1 as you envisage is not something you can just dream up. The idea of citizenship was all equal before the law, not as in animal farm and the fact that some are more equal than others. Our law makers are no longer the lawmakers we understand, the are revenue makers and all things derived to the making of profit.

      Perhaps you should consider running for office, but then again how could you, you are not a lawyer or a member of the judicial class. Check it out, count the composition of your legislature. Not a Jack man or citizen among them, unless you count the judicial proxy as a voter. Change needs to happen by taking back the voting franchise. It was not more than five decades ago, that ordinary men worked and took their place in the legislative bodies. Today, we employ others to do the heavy lifting for us and probably the worst type of human to have at such a level of control.

      By the way, the internet has three switches, on , off and slow and you do not control that either.

    • “…. our willingness to abide by the Constitution.”

      This doesn’t make sense.
      Point out an aspect of the constitution that applies to me.
      The 2nd?
      Doesn’t apply to me.
      Because I am not a gov’t employee.
      My natural rights are inherent and it doesn’t matter whether anyone else believes it or not.

      • I’m in absolute agreement with you.

        Your rights are independent of any Constitution.

        My own view is that the US Constitution is a poor document … BUT, it is nonetheless widely regarded; and it remains the basis for the existence of the whole governmental machine. I’m searching for some concept which will unite people.

        The 2A makes formal recognition of that right which exists naturally.

        From an English pov, though, your Constitution has one big thing in its favour. It appears to have functioned as a sort of philosophical anchor. Our English written Bill of Rights is weak and very largely unknown. Few people even know of its existence. Our Constitution, if it can be said to exist, is not gathered together in one document. It has to be inferred … the job of specialists.

        The result is that, whenever a politician makes a pronouncement, it is impossible for the ordinary man to say, “Hang on, that is not permitted, according to the Constitution. The result is that “everything is permitted”. There really is no check upon the State.

        Such behavior is the opposite of liberal, SF, as a genuine one while caring for the welfare of others wouldn’t force them to ‘do what’s best for them’ involuntarily. From what I’ve read here & at some other sites, that description fits a whole helluva lot of FreeFor including (no doubt to your joint horror) you, awm, & oughtsix. And, obviously, myself. That attitude, however, doesn’t mean that one’s a libertine which is what those who claim to be libertarians actually are once you examine their beliefs. Don’t fall into the mentality behind that semantic trap, SF, it’s a tar pit w/ blue ringed octopi as lifeguards.

        “We have……of course.”

      I’m not “telling” you to do anything. My suggestions to you are free … and worth every penny, some might say. Criticise them, or ignore them, as you please.

      As it happens, I’ve done exactly as I suggest … on a personal level. I have delivered my own Affidavit to both the PM and several MPs, telling them that I reject their governance. I did that alone.

      I would dearly like to organise a similar intellectual revolt in my own country. If I can find the appropriate tools, I will try to do so.

      As to risk. Well, I’m not beyond the reach of your jackbooted thugs, you know. It’s not unknown for Brits to be deported. Now, that “everyone is a terrorist”, all it takes is an accusation.

      Taking a broader perspective, “your problems ARE my problems”. What happens in America, will resound throughout the world. If there is armed rebellion there, it will spread to Europe. Similarly, if there is a New Reich … as is looking likely … then no-one is safe.

        Yup, but unless I’m mistaken, your assessment’s more of a confirmation of America being ‘the indispensible country’ & doesn’t necessarily mean that it’ll be we who (despite the paranoia of a great many who should know better) will take over the world but rather that once the American ‘cop’ is no longer ‘on the beat’ it’ll be Katy, Bar The Door planetarily. At the risk of being labeled a flaming chauvinist, IMO the outbreak of a general revolt would be less dangerous for us than for you & the rest of Europe assuming, of course, that our military doesn’t go full-tilt Soviet or engage in fratricide & start tossing nukes around.

        Barring either of those scenarios, our biggest worry would be from non-native kibitzers who figure that such an occurrence would keep our SNF sufficiently distracted & therefore be the right time to make some moves as per the absent cat/festive mice saying. If that happened, things really would go sideways & Oz might emerge as ‘the last man standing’ & thereby the de facto successor ‘World Cop’. It’s also worth wondering if Ivan & Chang might either have a go at each other &/or their neighbors, or divvy up Europe & Asia between them (& some of Latin America & Africa as well) & then join up to ‘reduce’ the Islamics & remove that threat once & for all. And dem damn Jooz would likely get cauterized too, strictly collateral damage of course, nuttin’ poysanul, wrong place an all dat ya know.

        If Ivan decided to ‘incorporate’ Poland & Bulgaria as buffers for Greater Russia & leave the rest of Europe alone, there’d be one helluva nasty continental inter-ethnic/religious shindig given Europe’s ancient/current internal animosities w/ England well & truly betwixt & between w/ a bunch of internal worries (Muslims, Welsh & Scots secession, a southern Erinese ‘reconquista’ of the north, calls for aid/refuge from America/Europe/Africa) of its own to deal w/.

        Wouldn’t it be cosmically ironic to see a Swiss-style federation of regional American polities (composed of the West/Plains/South) emerge from America’s (hopefully brief & not too debilitating) 3d Civil War & be called upon (i.e., begged) to yet again ‘assist’ (i.e., save) ‘Mother England’ & the Euros? Imagine, the very people you ‘sophisticates’ regularly revile as ‘uncouth, uncivilized, violent religious fanatic gun nuts’ being the ones you/they desperately need. Ouch! Conversely, it’d be interesting to see your/Europe’s reaction should the residents of our Leftist enclaves find themselves on the losing end of the aforementioned conflict, unable to flee to Canada as the Tories did due to its breakup, & therefore ‘requested’ (i.e., begged & pleaded) entry over there on humanitarian (i.e., political/cultural) grounds. Now THAT would be a VERY toasty tater indeed, YOWZAH!

        Whatever happens, it’s a certainty that somehow/someway it’ll end up as our fault that things went to hell……& dem damn Jooz too!

    Dan III,

    Ad Hominem attack fallacy is?

    I do use spell check. Most the words are just misused not misspelled. I’m slightly dyslexic, and because of this I am really poor self editor. I’m also, lazy in my editing I will admit, because this is a blog, and I’m not really emotionaly invested in if you actualy agree with me. FYI: Words like right and write have the same weight of meaning in my head, so when I do read over what I wrote I just don’t see it myself. This realy gets bad when I should be a sleep, and I’m just babbling. I’m sorry that you think english and how well you speak is an indication of how intelligent you are. If what you say was true, you would think English majors would rule the world.

    Oh, wait! We do have the Speaker in Cheif Obama, so maybe it’s true and more important how you say something then the ideas behind it.

    Just declaring, I’m stupid is not a defense of your position. This is what I expect from the intelectualy dishonest left. The left has racist when they want to silence the opposition.

    Our side just yells, “Apologist!!!”

    “Give Me Liberty, or Give Me Death!”

    – Patrick Henry

  22. Josh A. Kruschke

    March 23, 1775
    By Patrick Henry

    No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the house. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The question before the house is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at the truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.

    Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the numbers of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth, to know the worst, and to provide for it.

    I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves and the House. Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received?

    Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with those warlike preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlement assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us: they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne! In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation.

    There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free–if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending–if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained–we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us! They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable–and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.

    It is in vain, sir, to extentuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace–but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”

      The part starting w/ “Mr. President” & ending w/ “provide for it” is, imo, a truly magnificent bit of philosophy that’s mandatory for achieving maturity. Would that it was drilled in to everyone at an early age for if it were, the amount of magical ‘thinking’ & the unnecessary BS it creates would likely be reduced to an easily manageable level.

  24. Josh A. Kruschke

    There is only oneway, but forward.

    I do fear that we will loose ourway, but that is no excuse to do nothing.

    So, all I can ask is we lookout for each other, so that we don’t become just like them.

    We will not all see eye to eye, but as always the answer to questionable speach is not silence, but more speach. This tendence to try to silence, gives me pause. If we can’t even get this Right…. right, what else will we screw up in the ended? If we turn to the tactics of Alinsky, How far are we willing to go… Vasili Blokhin.

    Yes, I have fears, anyone that doesn’t at a time like this is an idiot. I try not to let my fears rule me, but I do not ignore them or pretend that everything will just magicly turnout for the best.

    These are my thoughts and I will continue to speak them freely. To do other wise would make me a traitor to all I hold dear.

    • All well and good, Josh – but remember this is not a public green.

      You are a guest in someone else’s establishment.

      Try not to make yourself look foolish; time itself will do enough of that for you.

    PS. My Silencing comment wasn’t directed at you but Dan III and others that think Ad Hominem is a valid responce in an discussion.


    • Josh, for the record. Henry, while a very polished and emotional speaker was taken apart by Madison during the Virginia ratification convention in 1788. He essentially stood alone in opposition to the Constitution after it was ratified. Using his position in the Virginia House of Burgesses he did his best to fuck over Madison and prevent his election to the first House of Representatives. Fortunately, his plans were derailed. Madison won election and was the foundation for our Bill of Rights.

      All men have good attributes as well as bad.

      We as a people are tasked to determine the good from the bad.

      Just sayin’.

      • And the fears of Henry and the other Anti-Federalists have been borne out, ja?

          Concerned American/5Nov13@23:20,

          The way things have turned out, the AFs should’ve been a LOT more ‘paranoid’ about govt & a LOT less trusting about the wisdom of the people. Imagine what things would look like if they could’ve had a confab w/, say, H.L. Mencken &/or Robert Conquest, a collection of all the anti-2A/pro-thug/pro-dictatorship cult’s machinations & a copy of the Kelo decision by themselves would probably be enough to vastly change the Constitution & BoR.

          If people thought Sam Adams & Henry were insufferable THEN, the mind boggles at how they’d be w/ that info & Conquest available.

          Cassandra (of Troy)

          • That’s why WE are here, Cass. Klein as well. Baugh, and several others.

            Someone’s got to take up the cry of “Permanent (as opposed to ad hoc/project basis) leadership structure leads to abuses, followed by mass murder of their own, unless the dirty SOBs always have a gun pointed at their heads.”

            As I have said, I will stand, fight, and die next to a committed Constitutionalist such as Alan and others.

            No one can ask for more.

            I just hope afterwards there’s a little piece of the North American Republic carved out for the MYOBs.

  26. Josh A. Kruschke

    1775 to 1788: 13 yrs between different events, also…

    Alan you might want to check your facts. Madison was not a strong suporter of the bill of rights, had to be talked into suporting it.

    “On September 12, George Mason of Virginia suggested the addition of a Bill of Rights to the Constitution modeled on previous state declarations, and Elbridge Gerry of Massachusetts made it a formal motion.[4] However, the motion was defeated by a unanimous vote of the state delegations after only a brief discussion. Madison, then an opponent of a Bill of Rights, later explained the vote by calling the state bills of rights “parchment barriers” that offered only an illusion of protection against tyranny.[5]”

    If it wasn’t for Ant-Federalist like Henry, Madison would have tried ratification without a Bill of Rights. 

    “Following the Philadelphia Convention, some leading revolutionary figures such as Patrick Henry, Samuel Adams, and Richard Henry Lee publicly opposed the Constitution, a position known as “Anti-Federalism”.[10] Elbridge Gerry wrote the most popular Anti-Federalist tract, “Hon. Mr. Gerry’s Objections”, which went through 46 printings; the essay particularly focused on the lack of a bill of rights in the proposed constitution.[11] Many were concerned that a strong national government was a threat to individual rights and that the President would become a king. Jefferson wrote to Madison advocating a Bill of Rights: “Half a loaf is better than no bread. If we cannot secure all our rights, let us secure what we can.”[12]”

    “Supporters of the Constitution, known as Federalists, opposed a bill of rights for much of the ratification period, in part due to the procedural uncertainties it would create.[16] Madison argued against such an inclusion, suggesting that state governments were sufficient guarantors of personal liberty, in No. 46 of The Federalist Papers, a series of essays promoting the Federalist position.[17] Hamilton opposed a Bill of Rights in Federalist No. 84, stating that “the constitution is itself in every rational sense, and to every useful purpose, A BILL OF RIGHTS.”[18]”

    Those that are impressed with Ayn Rands predictive ability should read the Anti-Federalist Essays.


    From Wiki Articke “Bill of Rights, section background. (Yes I know… It’s well sourced, and by my recollection accurate.):

    P.S. If you like your history told as a narrative read “Tempest at Dawn” for a intersting account of how our Constiution came to be.

  27. I think if you took a group of men from the founding fathers era and transported them to our time, they would be shocked and outraged at what has happened to America. I’m sure, to a man, they would grab their muskets and march into the capital to arrest pretty much everyone in government.
