Schindler: Why The Emails Matter


It’s not just Hillary-bashing (as fun as that is).

The emails and their storage matter not only as a measure of US intelligence damage, but as an indicator of what remains of the rule of law.

On the likely outcome (no indictment, no resignations), anyone who cares will understand that the entirety of Federal, state, and local law and regulation is now simply a tool by which to cow the peasants.

Which in turn provides actionable possibilities.

Sic transit gloria mundi.

Bracken: Maoris, Moors and Migrants


Maoris, Moors and Migrants: a history lesson for civilized humans facing an Ork invasion.

This section is copied from this link:

“Hundreds of years ago the Moriori, of the Chatham Islands, took a solemn vow of peace known as Nunuku’s Law. The decision to uphold this sacred law in the face of aggression in 1835 had tragic consequences. They were slaughtered, enslaved, and dispossessed of their lands. The Moriori lived on Chatham Island and Pitt Island, two islands in the Chatham Islands group, about 700 kilometers south-east of Wellington.

“Nunuku’s Law: Isolated from mainland New Zealand, the Moriori developed a unique culture based on a law of peace. This was called Nunuku’s Law, after the ancestor Nunuku-whenua. After seeing bloody conflict between the Hamata people and later arrivals, he banned murder and the eating of human flesh forever. After 1791, when the British ship Chatham called at Rēkohu, Moriori came into contact with Europeans and Māori who came as crew on sealing and whaling vessels. Some settled on the islands and lived alongside the Moriori. This relative peace was shattered in 1835 when Maoris from two tribes, both from Taranaki, arrived in the Chatham Islands in search of new territories and resources.

“In 1835, 24 generations after the Moriori chief Nunuku had forbidden war, the Moriori welcomed about 900 people from the two Māori tribes. Originally from Taranaki on New Zealand’s North Island, they had voyaged from Wellington on an overcrowded European vessel, the Rodney. They arrived severely weakened, but were nursed back to health by their Moriori hosts. However, they soon revealed hostile intentions and embarked on a reign of terror.

“Stunned, the Moriori called a council of 1,000 men at Te Awapātiki to debate their response. The younger men were keen to repel the invaders, and argued that even though they had not fought for many centuries, they outnumbered the newcomers two-to-one and were a strong people. But the elders argued that Nunuku’s Law was a sacred covenant with their gods and could not be broken. The consequences for Moriori were devastating.

“Although the total number of Moriori first slaughtered was said to be around 300, hundreds more were enslaved and later died. Some were killed by their captors. Others, horrified by the desecration of their beliefs, died of ‘kongenge’ or despair [often suicide by leaping from cliffs]. According to records made by their elders, 1,561 Moriori died between 1835 and 1863, when they were released from slavery. Many succumbed to diseases introduced by Europeans, but large numbers died at the hands of the Maoris. In 1862 only 101 remained. When the last known full-blooded Moriori died in 1933, many thought this marked the extinction of a race.”

The Maori and the Chatham Islanders

This section is from this link:

On Chatham Island, 800 kilometers east of New Zealand, lived the Moriori, who were related to the Maori. They were hunters and gatherers, sparse in population and, perhaps because they were few in number and isolated, they were unpracticed at warfare. In late 1835 about 900 Maori from New Zealand landed on Chatham Island. The Maori were armed with guns, clubs and axes. They announced to the Moriori that they were their slaves. Moriori chiefs conferred with each other and drew from their religious heritage. [Nunuku’s Law.] They offered the Maori friendship and a share of the island’s resources. The attempt to appease the Maori failed. The Maori began killing the Moriori, including women and children. The Maori put people in pens and feasted on the tender meat of Moriori children. A Maori conqueror described it:

“We took possession, in accordance with our customs and we caught all the people. Not one escaped. Some ran away from us. These we killed, and others we killed – but what of that? It was in accordance with our custom.”

The lesson of Chatham Island is that people who live in comfortable circumstances, for enough generations to forget the horrors of anarchy and total war, will often let down their guard to a fatal degree. The examples I will compare are Chatham Island in 1835, the Island of Plenty from my Alienork Way allegory, and Europe today. It is my observation, that in a well-calculated series of defined steps and expected responses, that alien Orks (taken from The Alienork Way) can overcome and subdue even an outwardly more affluent, powerful and successful society.

By the time the native people on Chatham Island (or on The Island of Plenty, or in Europe today) realize what mortal peril they are in, they have let in so many vicious Orks that they automatically present a grave threat to the native population at large. I would point to the widespread sex attacks in Cologne and across Europe on New Year’s Eve, as just one recent example of the threat posed by the Orks.

At the early and emerging point of danger in my Alienork allegory, the Orks can still be confronted, but the will of the public officials cannot be raised sufficiently high for them to order their forcible ejection. Politicians are natural delayers and compromisers, and the invading Orks exploit both weaknesses. When the peaceful islanders realize that three more young Ork males have arrived without asking permission, the islanders accept their presence as a fait accompli. The Orks simply show up, declare themselves to be refugees, and demand to be fed, parasites cynically exploiting the islanders’ own laws concerning the sharing of their bounty with anyone who has a need.

At that juncture, the Ork elder Amok and his three “nephews” could still have been defeated by the peaceful islanders, but only with an acceptance of the fact that doing battle would incur injuries and even deaths on both sides. But in the story of The Alienork Way, after the next moon, thirty more armed male Orks have arrived unbidden, and they are not long in giving the orders to the native islanders. Their code, defined as The Alienork Way, is enforced at sword point. The least sign of defiance or resistance is answered with beheadings and the taking of native women. Thus the larger and more affluent and outwardly more successful society of peaceful islanders can be subdued and enslaved by a smaller number of savagely vicious Ork invaders via a carefully plotted series of incremental steps.

Europe is now at the point in The Alienork Way when everybody agrees that the three “nephews” of Amok are a serious problem, and it looks like at least thirty more armed male Orks are on the way. With each fresh arrival of refugee “reinforcements,” local defensive measures will require even greater levels of violence to be successful. The difficult decision to forcibly eject the invaders is continually delayed. The “peaceful islanders,” today being played by the Europeans, keep putting off the inevitable, as thousands and thousands of male Orks arrive every day from the failed states comprising Orkistan.

Today, the European secular religion of multi-culturalism acts like Nunuku’s Law did on Chatham Island in 1835, disallowing a realistic appraisal of different cultures, and forbidding the adequate defense of Europe until it’s too late. The European version of Nunuku’s Law also prohibits ordinary citizens from owning suitable means of self-defense in the form of personally owned firearms, rendering them virtually helpless against Ork attacks.

At this writing in January of 2016, anyone who speaks of mass deportations of the Orks from Europe simply cannot be taken seriously. It’s far too late for that. Just watch the January 24 videos of the Calais migrant mobs sending the French police running in disorder. Multiply that street riot by a thousand when migrant violence breaks out simultaneously in dozens of Europeans cities in the form of a mass “Ork Rising.”

To see another infamous Ork Rising, you could watch the many security camera videos taken on New Year’s Eve in Cologne, directly in front of the train station and cathedral, but the German police erased all of them. Just like on Chatham Island, it’s much easier to ignore painful reality than it is to effectively confront it. Keep in mind that New Year’s Eve was only a warm up and a pep-rally for the Great Jihad of 2016. [Tet, Take Two] Like hive insects exuding chemical pheromone attack signals, these preparatory Ork Risings act as mass social signals, reinforcing the common Ork feeling of their own invincibility when massed in groups, as well as the complete inadequacy and inability of their European prey to stop them.

Now please imagine flash-mobs of hundreds or even thousands of male Orks, even if they are initially armed only with iron bars and knives. Each mob action seen on television sparks an even greater street turnout among the Orks as the wireless pheromone signals are transmitted among the collective Ork hive-mind. Jean Raspail wrote of this dynamic in ‘The Camp of the Saints’, and he asked, when will the European leaders give the order to open fire in defense of their culture? The answer is, never, and Europe is overrun by savages.

Like Nunuku’s Law on Chatham Island, the Law of Multi-Kulti-Uber-Alles will spell Europe’s doom.

My guess is that Europe will be lost to the Ork invaders, or at the very least, Europe will suffer a prolonged civil war on the measure of Lebanon, the Balkans and Syria at the height of those wars. Some cities will look like Sarajevo or Grozny in their very worst moments before this is all sorted out, that is, if the Orks are going to be defeated. The Moors invaded Spain in 711 and controlled the entire Iberian Peninsula by 788. It then took 700 years, (let that sink in, seven hundred years), for the Spanish reconquista to eject the Moors from Iberia. And the Spanish did it under the banner of the Christian cross, which was then a socially potent European rallying symbol.

Today, secular and virtually atheist Europeans will not have that rallying banner out in front to unite them in a common cause and to spur their desire for reconquista. The Europeans will lose badly when modern Middle-Eastern urban warfare tactics are employed against them with increasing frequency. These tactics will include car bombs, human bombs, IEDs, random sniper and even knife attacks, with some Mumbai, Beslan or Paris attacks thrown in.

Even today, very few Europeans have any idea of the total shit-storm directly ahead of them. In this type of vicious war, the Orks will exploit even temporary tactical victories to maximize the immediate slaughter. For example, if a squad of Orks takes over an office building for even a few hours, they will kill every male prisoner out of hand. (Sometimes giving quarter to those among the captured who can recite the Shahada prayer in Arabic.) Then they will rape the women, even if they have only a few hours left to live. By doing so, they are gloriously living out their sick fantasy of holy jihad. If they die, they are vaulted straight into their promised perpetual orgy with seventy-two virgins in Ork heaven. If they survive, they will attack again and again, until they are put down like rabid hyenas.

When these types of attacks become a weekly or a daily event, and when even the life-saving first responders are massacred with delayed-action bombs, will the first responders stop responding? The police and the military will suffer high attrition, and personnel burnout will come fast. Who will respond to bomb scenes when another bomb might go off in fifteen minutes or two hours? I am only relating the standard tactics now in use across the Middle East, the home of many of Europe’s so-called refugees.

The absence of rapid police or military response means that every European in any type of structure must be ready for local self-defense without expecting outside help or rescue. Europeans in isolated buildings and homes will be susceptible to what may be thought of as savage Comanche Indian raids launched anytime, anywhere, against anybody. Consider that a typical encounter will consist of ten Orks armed with (at least) knives and iron bars attempting to force a home invasion against a barricaded French or German family. Can the family keep them out? Even if they can, for a while, what about follow-up arson attacks, such as the one used against the Benghazi consulate’s “safe room?”.

This dreadfully unhappy picture is Europe’s future, due to the unbelievably misguided European policy of inviting millions of savage and barbaric Orks to live among them. History will regard the once-avoidable Great Jihad of 2016 as the predictable result of one of the most colossally stupid series of decisions ever taken by any group of leaders, anywhere, ever. At least the peaceful Chatham Islanders did not actively seek to invite the bloodthirsty Maoris to invade their homeland. Today’s European political leaders have invited this great catastrophe upon their own people. History will not forgive them for launching the unnecessary slaughter that is ahead for Europe.

Roberts: Organization II


Organizational Considerations II
Bill Roberts

I mentioned in the first Organizational Considerations that I intended to use the U.S. Army Infantry model for organization. With perhaps some minor modifications early on, that will hold true from here out. Also, this will not be a Ft. Leavenworth Command and General Staff course. Just another overview but with some added specific detail to guide your developmental process.

Essentially, the unit of Infantry that most people are familiar with is the Squad. Doctrinally this is composed of a Staff Sergeant and 8 – 12 soldiers. The Squad however, is actually composed of Fire Teams. These are 4 man elements with a Sergeant as the leader. We will start this organizational build at this level. Now, if right out of the gate you have more than 4 members of your group, GREAT! Build a second or third Fire Team. If you have less, recruiting to the magic number of 4 will be helpful.

As previously stated, 1 of these 4 is the leader, the rest followers. You may choose to follow the Infantry rank structure or use other titles. I don’t recommend Comrade but to each their own. The other benefit of having 4 or more individuals it that our real focus is to build a cadre/staff to support the growth of the unit. With 4 individuals you have the Leader, an S1/4, an S2/3 and another, who at this point, I would include with the S2/3 as there is going to be a lot going on in that arena.

If you do not have much in the way of doctrinal resources it would be good to procure them at this point. These will take the shape of Field Manuals, Technical Manuals and the like that focus on the main issues of the cadre/staff. While most of these can be found in a .pdf format on line, having a printed copy or copies is a much better solution. Maybe you have someone with access to a printer and can simply print out the .pdf and put it in a binder. That is a satisfactory solution. Much easier to flip from page to page and tab the hard copy than try to sort through screens on the computer. Don’t forget about that whole electricity/dropping the computer thing.

What manuals should you have? I would consider the following list to be a start and definitely not complete or all inclusive. Also, don’t be too concerned about when the manual was published. Anything from the early 1980s forward is going to fine for your purposes. FM 6-0, Commander and Staff Organization and Operations; FM 34-3, Intelligence Analysis; FM 34-130, Intelligence Preparation of the Battlefield (IPB); FM 101-5-1, Operational Terms and Graphics; FM 101-5, Staff Organization and Operations (can be used in lieu of FM 6-0); ADRP 5-0, The Operations Process (not high priority but useful); from here you will be able to determine what addition manuals you would like in you library. There are some non-military manuals that are a compilation of several military manuals and are quite good. The cost in the neighborhood of $30.00 each. The 3 I would recommend are: The Battle Staff, The Army Operations and Doctrine, The Small Unit Tactics; all are authored by Norman M. Wade and published by Lightning Press.

Regardless of what references you choose, they will allow you to develop a unit and staff/cadre without reinventing the wheel so to speak. Do not get overwhelmed by the volume of information. I will be stepping through it from this end and you can follow that lead or go your own way. The choice is yours.

What do these folks that compose the staff/cadre do? What is their function? In a large organization the Leader will have a Primary Staff or Coordinating Staff, a Special Staff and perhaps a Personal Staff. While most explanations of staff functions are quite lengthy, this will be a synopsis. I will only be dealing here with the Leader and Primary Staff. For the full blown explanation of each area refer to one of the manuals I cited above.

I’ll start with the Leader. His function is very straight forward. He is the seat of Command and Control. By whatever virtue he became the Leader, he gained the Authority to command. Of course with that comes the Responsibility and Accountability for his actions and the welfare of his people. The Authority he can delegate to a member(s) of the staff if he is so inclined. The Responsibility and Accountability remain always with the Leader. The saying was: A Leader is responsible for everything his people do and fail to do. That is paraphrasing of course. The Leader should provide leadership and guidance to the staff, cadre or unit. As the unit expand there may be the addition of an Executive Officer or XO. That position is just a number 2 leadership position in most units and is available to take the primary leadership role in the absence of the Leader. Most usually this individual fills the role of Chief of Staff in a staff and coordinates all staff functions for the Leader.

The S1 (Personnel) could also be referred to as the Director of Personnel. This position is responsible for all matters concerning human resources to include personnel readiness, personnel services and headquarters management. Some specific examples would include recruitment, retention and replacement of unit personnel and advising the Leader on all matters concerning personnel.

The S2 (Intelligence) is the principal staff position for all matters concerning intelligence, counterintelligence, security operations, and intelligence training. These will include but are not limited to: collecting, processing, producing, and disseminating intelligence and supervising the personnel security program.

The S3 (Operations) could be titled as the Director of Plans, Operations and Training. From the title you get a pretty good idea of what the duties of this position entail and just how critical it is to the success of the unit.

The S4 (Logistics) is responsible for coordinating the logistics integration of supply, maintenance, transportation, and services for the unit. This includes advising the Leader on the quantity of each class of supply required to sustain the unit for a specified period of time, the maintenance necessary to sustain unit equipment in operable condition and the transportation requirements necessary to move the unit.

The importance of beginning the organization with a basic functioning staff cannot be over emphasized. The staff will allow the unit to function and grow in a planned and orderly manner. Even a Special Forces Detachment overlays the basic staff functions on members of the team. It allows for easier planning and coordination with higher staff sections.

Now that we have looked at the very basics needed for the staff/cadre we must revisit these same individuals as the first unit or if the numbers hold, the first fire team. Here the staff takes on a different role. Previously they were the planners and now they have put on their other hats and have to be prepared to execute the plans they developed. This is where you will see if the Intelligence prepared by the S2, the Plans, Operations and Training the S3 developed and the Supply and Maintenance structure the S4 came up with actually works. Let’s hope the work was put into the planning that was needed.

This is where we are going to determine if the various levels established across the supply classes is enough, not enough, or too much. I imagine the first action is to identify the Classes of Supply.

Class I – Food, rations, and water
Class II – Clothing
Class III – Petroleum, oils, and lubricants
Class IV – Fortification and barrier materials
Class V – Ammunition
Class VI – Personal Items
Class VII – Major End Items
Class VIII – Medical supplies, minimal amounts
Class IX – Repair Parts
Class X – Miscellaneous supplies

All of these may not be initially required but most all of them will be eventually required. At what levels these will be stocked for the unit is a decision only the unit can make. For example, everyone’s favorite Class V – Ammunition. What is the unit’s requirement for ammunition? Depending on what the unit is preparing for it may be a few dozen rounds of “guard” ammo or it may be several hundred per individual. This same rationale applies to all the classes of supply. Quantity will be incumbent on mission requirements/plans.

This has been a simplification of the Staff/Cadre necessary to successfully begin a unit. In addition to all the “things” a unit needs the most important one is probably knowledge. Get the resources I sited to begin with, get intimately familiar with them and then start building. I am available off line for questions.

Until then be safe.
