(H/t Jerry Pournelle)
Heed JC’s closing graf, please:
…Either continue making excuses for doing little or nothing of substance in your preparations (“Mom, the bad man called me a child!”), or get it done! You have no one to blame but yourself if you’re not even a speed bump in the thugs movement to power.
For God’s sake, at least be a Damned speed bump – you owe your family that much. Train and Prepare yourself Spiritually, Mentally and Physically, and get your logistics in order.
Instruction for each task is here.
They seem to be related in some manner.
Related film below:
Keep track of the checkboxes FUSA has already completed.
The preceding gent stated:
“I think the writer is losing sight of the fact that conservative values and fealty to our divinely inspired constitution are non negotiable, and are worth fighting (and killing) for.”
“Should that murderous loyalty be to the ideals supposedly protected by the USC/BoR, or to the flawed expressions therein?”
Another (hopefully clearer) way to ask my question would be:
“Is the Constitution/BoR worth killing over, or is it the ideals supposedly protected by that document that are worthy of taking others’ lives?”
My premise for the question is that the USC/BoR does not and has not stood by itself for 200+ years.
What we refer to as “the USC/BoR” is not just the words of the document themselves, but also all of the words of all of the ratified amendments, plus all of the accreted ‘interpretations’ of all of those words by Federal courts (not just SCOTUS, but circuit courts of appeal and even district courts) for 200+ years.
That interpretative process has created the following monster:
all words of USC/BoR
all words of every ratified amendment
all published words of every court that has ruled on all USC/BoR/amendments since ratification of each
“the body of US constitutional law”
Now, restating my question with that info, it reads:
“Is the body of US constitutional law worth killing over, or is it the ideals supposedly protected by that institution that are worthy of taking others’ lives?”
I would argue that the body of US constitutional law, as a whole, is not worth a duck’s fart, in that along with ‘the good stuff’, it includes statements such as:
– the Feds can require private citizens to purchase health insurance
– any level of government can seize private property for virtually any purpose so long as there is some nominal adjudication process
– administrative agencies headed by appointed officials can promulgate rules that have the force of law
– laws forbidding a woman from directing a doctor to murder her baby are unconstitutional
– warrantless surveillance/seizure is acceptable in far more circumstances than a layman would believe reading the words of the 4A standing alone
– anti-sodomy laws are impermissible
– the $ taken by force by the Feds under the name of ‘social security’ ceases to belong to its original earner
– public displays of Christian symbols are forbidden on government land
– notwithstanding the ‘shall not be infringed’ language of the 2A, government at all levels can infringe upon RKBA in multiple ways as long as there are enough hoplophobes amongst the reviewing panels of judges for a particular controversy
and so forth.
This point is missed by most Constitutionalists, who without sufficient thought accept the body of US constitutional law as being worthy of bloodshed.
More importantly, those same well-meaning folks also fail to see that, as long as “The Constitution” is defined as the prize, it is very easy for supporters of the past 80 years of collectivist judicial activism to claim that they are defending the Constitution (as it is understood in reality by >50%+ of the American people) from evil white men who want to turn the clock back.
Let me repeat:
The people who will in the near future come to kill/imprison freedom-loving folks will say and believe that they are the ones defending the Constitution and the legitimate USG from those who would violently overthrow those democratic, 100% legal American institutions.
It is a huge problem that I have not seen anyone in FREEFOR address explicitly:
Is the USC/BoR/amendments/caselaw edifice worthy of our efforts?
Those are worth defending to the final extreme.
Not the verbal vomiting-forths of elitist lawyers for the past 200+ years.
Read the whole thing, along with this related post from Robert’s always-worthwhile SLL operation.
Money (heh) quote from the second piece:
…37% of the government’s total reported assets are student loans, which is now considered one of the most precarious bubbles in finance…
What possibly could go wrong?
There is a world of difference between “say” and “do”.
And there is this oldie but goodie:
The FUSA is not at peace.
Conduct yourselves accordingly.
Follow the directions given.
There is no cavalry coming to save you and your family.
There is no voting our way out of what is coming.
The only way out – and it is a way out – is to follow Admiral Stockdale’s advice and ruthlessly embrace reality:
“You must never confuse faith that you will prevail in the end – which you can never afford to lose – with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be.”
Then act accordingly.
More on the topic next week.
In the meantime, had a thorough physical (including dental) lately?
‘Commercial airliners’, hell.
How about newsrooms?
And pwobabwy waaaaacisss.
Having seen the course outline, the price is nothing for the quantity of instruction you will receive.
Contact the instructor at the link above.
Start at the beginning, and keep reading.
Gary is to be commended for his efforts at assembling an integrated account of the episode.
When cops get anonymity, any cop will be sufficient for someone seeking revenge.
That is probably not one of the effects that they intend, but likely.

Old-school wiseguy stuff.
Keeping wannabes and other outsiders outside….for years.
Use of pay phone (think burnerphones now) for most calls.
Avoidance of the phone for important topics.
Awareness of the possibility of bugging of common locations, so avoid discussing important matters at a clubhouse, etc.
Loyalty up and down in the organization.
Need to know (and awareness of what happens when you violate that rule).
“Vouching”, mafiosi style (i.e., if that guy for whom you vouched is a problem, then you’ve got a problem, too).
Take care of a member and his family when he gets pinched, but keeps his mouth shut.
Integration into and part of the neighborhood.
Food for study, thought, and implementation.

Very interesting. While we were all distracted by the funeral for Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia on Saturday the White House was meeting with members of the National Governors Association (winter meeting) to assure them that it was perfectly safe for them to ‘welcome’ Syrian refugees to their states…
You may not be interested in war.
UPDATE 0925EST 26FEB2016: Broken link fixed.
Since FDR, people have been brainwashed into believing collapse was imminent. I too, at one point, fell into that crowd. I have come to understand the drama, and its impact. I see it for what it is – Kabuki Theater.
Here is someone that obviously Reserves the Right to Become More Intelligent. He asks an excellent question:
I was listening to a discussion about counter insurgency in Iraq today.
I’m not sure if it’s a good analogy or applicable to the situation of Islamic Jihadists, Communists, etc but if the host is a person and the terrorists are ticks.
When you identify one it’s easy to remove it and monitor the host for sickness. If the head is left in and it gets to the heart of the people it can kill the host nation. In a war of a thousand or million ticks there comes a point where the host is basically dead or terminal.
My question is the correct strategy parallel construction of a new host, that is isolated from the ticks. Like the British did in Malaya?
Or is it ideological subversion – to basically equate the ticks with an ideology that is defeated by making it obsolete?
With reference to one’s own status and balance sheet – be you a pol, a K street bandit, or a .gov lifer?
Big casino, baby.
Go ahead and vote at it.
Vote it right between the eyes.
Get your friends to do the same.
And here we are.
America is dead.
Your community is your country.
