February 29 2016



February 2016  was a bitch of a month, I hope I never have to live  through anything like that ever again.

I am still sick today  (flu/cold)  but I went for a walk in the winter woods, while the snow was falling.








Memo To The Elite: Forget About Assassinating Donald Trump

Memo To The Elite: Forget About Assassinating Donald Trump

Video Rebel’s Blog
Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy
And the following advice came from Don Vito Corleone in the Godfather movie as a warning to Mafia chieftains at an organized crime peace summit:  
“But let me say this. I am a superstitious man, a ridiculous failing but I must confess it here. And so if some unlucky accident should befall my youngest son, if some police officer should accidentally shoot him, if he should hang himself while in his jail cell, if new witnesses appear to testify to his guilt, my superstition will make me feel that it was the result of the ill will still borne me by some people here. Let me go further. If my son is struck by a bolt of lightning I will blame some of the people here. If his plane should fall into the sea or his ship sink beneath the waves of the ocean, if he should catch a mortal fever, if his automobile should be struck by a train, such is my superstition that I would blame the ill will felt by people here. Gentlemen, that ill will, that bad luck, I could never forgive.”
Anyone with the intelligence of a toad can figure out that one of the primary reasons why the world’s economy is entering the worst Depression in 500 years is because we have phenomenal levels of corruption.
We can see widespread condemnation of Trump from people who defend Open Borders and illegal immigration. We know that $8.5 trillion in Defense Department spending cannot be accounted for because the DOD has failed to implement proper accounting procedures. Donald Rumsfeld had promised us a new accounting system on September 10, 2001 on the CBS Evening News when he had announced a mere $2.3 trillion in government spending had vanished into the ether. This organized pilfering of taxpayer money has been allowed by both Republican and Democrat Presidents, Senators and Congressmen. And people inside Washington D.C. wonder why we do not like them.
Hillary is the personification of corruption. She has collected billions in bribes through her Clinton Foundation. She is so arrogant that she had her daughter Chelsea run her operation exposing her only child to criminal charges. Hillary is unlikely to ever be jailed for her many crimes because she knows enough about Washington deals to send thousands of Republicans and Democrats to jail. President Obama will have to pardon the Clintons including Chelsea or face a lengthy jail term after he leaves office.
The Dream of the Corrupt Ones inside the Republican branch of the sewer that is our nation’s capitol is to have a brokered convention and nominate Mitt Romney for President. The Rothschild owned Economist magazine has told us that Trump must be stopped. But everyday Gentiles just aren’t willing to take orders from the Rothschilds The Romney 2016 candidacy won’t fly. People are catching on to the corruption.
The elite have a Fail Safe plan they have used before. They killed President Kennedy for a variety of reasons. Organized corruption and the Jewish Lobby allowed them to cover up JFK’s assassination. The murder of Robert F Kennedy was even more blatantly a conspiracy run from the inside. Sirhan was standing in front of RFK. The Senator had just won the California primary and was to be the 1968 Democrat nominee for President. The LA Coroner’s report said he was shot in the back at an upward angle with one of the bullets coming from no more than 3 inches away. That rules out Sirhan as an assassin. Martin Luther King Jr was not around to demand a real criminal investigation for RFK’s murder because The Powers That Be had already killed him on April 4, 1968.
On June 18, 2013 the FBI murdered journalist Michael Hastings with a car bomb in Los Angeles. He had been critical of the Obama administration’s policy of using surveillance state techniques to intimidate the press. Killing one more reporter did not stop Seymour Hersh from printing an article in the London Review of Books detailing the US military’s resistance to Obama’s Syria policy. Obama had armed, funded and trained ISIS. ISIS used to be known as Al Qaeda in Iraq. Al Nusra was known as Al Qaeda in Syria. When it came time for ISIS to invade Iraq, Secretary of State John Kerry gave 400 white pickup trucks that met US Special Forces modifications. They gave them to ISIS. Obama refused to bomb ISIS when they could have easily been stopped on the road to Mosul with Air power alone. Iraq had been promised planes from the US but they did not arrive until after Mosul fell. The US has repeatedly bombed Iraqi forces fighting ISIS and also dropped supplies to the terrorists.
Both houses of Congress and the President have passed appropriations for Al Qaeda. The President, both Secretaries Clinton and Kerry and the majority of the Senate and the House have committed treason. How so? The government or should I say the Occupation Group in Washington claims Al Qaeda did 911. It has been against US law since 9, 11 2001 to give aid to Al Qaeda. That means that the President, his administration and the majority of the Senators and Congressmen are traitors. It also means that the mainstream press are guilty of covering up treason.
Americans were lied into a war in Iraq by false intelligence directed from Israel through the Jewish front group, Project for a New American Century. George Bush had decided to invade Afghanistan prior to 911 because he wanted to corner the world’s opium market.
$6 trillion later we as a nation are a lot poorer for the lies the the elite had told us. They want to up the ante and failure to believe known government lies a criminal act.
Donald Trump for whatever reason has in 2016 become the conduit for the justifiable wrath of the American people. If he should die, things will not go well for the elite. Americans own 315 million guns. Wall Street knows we are headed to financial ruin. We could soon have Nationwide Food Riots. The Uber Rich want us to have a Racial Civil War so we destroy each other and not them. But even if only 500,000 armed men go looking for the elite, our oppressors won’t live long.
Just take what you have stolen and run. Though I want the US military to seize the assets of the Bankers and their friends in offshore tax havens.

How Tyrannies Implode

I will let others figure out for themselves what this has to do with the united states in the days of the Obama -- and, next -- Administration (if there is one).

How Tyrannies Implode


By Richard Fernandez February 27, 2016

From a Comment: 

First, I have to comment on the Ceaușescu video. The first frame before you hit play. And not the dictator, but the Security Services goon behind him. Look at his face. You can tell that he is several seconds ahead of his boss in realizing that the game is up. The Romanian equivalent of gou3shi!3 is going through his mind, jammed up with consideration of escape routes. When you start seeing those with a bit more perception beating feet out of there like the smart emigres left France in 1789; it will be telling.<<<<<Snip

Snip>>>>

In a world where all is collapsing, both wings of the Bipartisan Governing Party are collapsing too.
Turning and turning in the widening gyre

The falcon cannot hear the falconer;

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;

Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;

The best lack all conviction, while the worst

Are full of passionate intensity.

We are past the point where things can be restored to what was considered normal. There is a burning time, literal or rhetorical, that must be passed through first. And what is restored may well not be what was.<<<<<snip 

https://pjmedia.com/richardfernandez/2016/02/27/how-tyrannies-implode/

Snip>>>>
Flash back to 1986 before we knew what was then the future.  The same things might have been said of Ferdinand Marcos and Nikolae Ceaușescu (about more later) in 1989. They were outwardly strong yet both were doomed.  Their regimes would collapse like a house of cards  in ways we are still struggling to understand. One of the theories (hat tip commenter Edie_VA)  put forward to explain the implosions was  preference falsification.

In his book Private Truth, Public Lies, social scientist Timur Kuran argued that people, under pressure to conform by culture leaders, often told public lies to get the pollsters and thought police off their backs, even as they nurtured largely undetected private resentments  inside them. Over time, two divergent perceptions would emerge: the public lie would determine how the regime thought about itself while the private truth contained the real, but hidden data.

These two contradictory perceptions can coexist for as long as they don't meet, living in a kind of superposition much like Schrodinger's Cat.  But eventually some event occurs which makes the public aware of the private truth which is really what everybody is thinking.  That observation collapses the political wave function and causes all hell to break loose.  Perhaps the clearest and most dramatic example of such a cascade was Nicolae Ceaușescu's final speech on December 21, 1989. When the speech started, Ceaușescu appeared to be in total control.  By the end of it, he was literally running for his life.
In the wake of growing tension over an uprising in Timișoara in which thousands were reportedly killed, Ceaușescu decided to give a nationally televised speech ...Thousands of workers were bussed into the square under threat of being fired. They were given red flags, banners and large pictures of Ceaușescu and his wife. ... The crowd, now totaling up to 80,000, were given orders on where to stand, when to applaud and what to sing. The front rows of the assembly were made up of low-level Communist Party officials and members who acted as cheer-leaders. ...
So far so good.  Then it all fell apart.  It was a fantastic reversal of fortune.
However, he had badly misread the crowd's mood. ... Eight minutes into the speech, some in the crowd actually began to scream because there was a shooting that occurred in the background. Workers from a Bucharest power plant started chanting "Ti-mi-șoa-ra! Ti-mi-șoa-ra!"—a chant that was soon picked up by others in the crowd. In response, Ceaușescu raised his right hand in hopes of silencing the crowd; his stunned expression remains one of the defining moments of the end of Communism in Eastern Europe. After many people began to exit the square, Ceaușescu shouted over the public address system for them to "remain seated". He then tried to placate the crowd by offering to raise workers' salaries by [the usual Romanian socialist pittance] ... At that very moment, many everyday Romanians saw the weakness of Ceaușescu's regime for the first time.


By the next day the rebellion had spread across the country and Nikolae and Elena Ceaușescu would be shot 3 days later still wearing the same overcoats they had donned on the occasion of their triumphant speech.  In this incident the mystery of the Color Revolutions is reduced to its essentials.  To the question: why couldn't Ceaușescu or Marcos see it coming, the answer is: they only saw the public lie.  The private truth remained hidden until some galvanizing event forced it to the surface.
It's becoming evident that the European elites failed to understand how explosive the migrant issue was until it detonated full in their face. Now it is in the midst of a crisis which could literally bring down the European Union.  Why didn't they see it coming?  Because they believed their own Narrative, even when they should have suspected it was a lie of their own making. If the PC Western elites are overtaken by a cascade similar to that which collapsed the Soviet Union, the ultimate irony will be that the very migrants which they had counted on to create the Curley Effect will turn out to be the engine of their own destruction.<<<<<Snip

Yup. And whatever the common end goal is, it needs to be “back of the pickup truck” simple – a la the following draft talk to a bunch of scared, pissed-off folks trying to figure out what to do next (from a screenplay that will never be completed):
“Listen up. These bastards think they get to control every damned bit of every damned thing that every damned one of us does or wants to do. Well, bullshit.
It’s this simple:
Nobody – and I mean NO-BODY – gets to mess with me, my family, my property, or my principles. Period. End of story.
I don’t want to do any of that to anyone else, and I won’t tolerate anyone who does.
Anyone who tries is gonna get the fight of their lives, and only one of us is gonna walk away. Guess who that’s gonna be?
There’s a bunch of them up the road, and they’re planning right now how they can come over here and finish us off. Well, fuck them. Fuck them to death.
I’m goin’ up there, along with anyone else who wants to come, and put an end to this shit, right now. No bullshit, no prisoners, no nuthin’.
This shit ends now.”

......and They've had Total Control of Our Government .....

But necessary.
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?

The specific details of how you were defrauded – by Judge Anna von Reitz, Alaska

The specific details of how you were defrauded – by Judge Anna von Reitz, Alaska

Maine Republic – by David Robinson
Your time-line (road-map) to explore the fraud and deception for yourself!
  1.  1754-1776: The “United Colonies” take shape as a loose political association, and the First and Second Continental Congresses result.
  2. 1776: The Colonies declare independence.
  3. 1781: The Articles of Confederation bind “States” — political subdivisions of the United Colonies – together in a “perpetual union”, creating a confederation of States to operate in the international Jurisdiction of the Sea.   [Why a “confederation” instead of a “federation”?  –Because the original States gave up some of their natural jurisdiction to the new political entity, the Union, they created.]
  4. 1783: The Treaty of Paris and Treaty of Versailles cements this arrangement  splitting the land and sea jurisdictions between the States and the Federal Union and places King George III as Trustee of American interests on the “High Seas and Navigable Inland Waterways” —which means he kept control of  American international commerce.  The new “Union” entity operating in the international Jurisdiction of the sea  was always controlled by the British and it has always been the British Monarch’s responsibility as International Trustee to manage it and guarantee its proper operation.   It has instead run amok for 150 years.
  5. 1787: The Supreme Perfected Republican Declaration of the United Colonies creates the National Trust owed the Continental United States.
  6. 1789: Two years later, “The Constitution for the united States of America” splits off the sea jurisdiction and creates the new Federal United States.  A year later (1790) the Federal United States forms a commercial company doing business as the United States (Commercial Company) to provide the nineteen enumerated services agreed to by the subscribing States.
  7. 1812-1814: The British try to horn in again and are beaten back. This skirmish results in the Treaty of Ghent, where the British interests in American shipping and commerce are reaffirmed and lasting peace is promised in return.
  8. 1845: The British Monarch and Pope secretly agree to undermine the American System of government via the Treaty of Verona.  The British Monarch breaches the Treaty of Ghent and both the Pope and the King secretly breach their trust as International Trustees.  They set out on a covert action and issued Letters of Marque and Reprisal to the members of the Bar Associations, allowing them to act as Foreign Agents on American soil and as privateers free to plunder American commerce.
  9. 1860: Thanks to the efforts of the Bar Associations a member of the Bar, Abraham Lincoln, is elected to serve as President.  Note that he is ineligible serve as President of the united States of America, by the Titles of Nobility Amendment to the actual Constitution— but is eligible to serve as President of the United States (Commercial Company).   This is the same situation we have with Barack Obama who is ineligible to serve as President of the United States of America, but is able to serve as President of the United States (Incorporated).
  10. 1861: The Civil War begins.  Congress adjourns for lack of quorum and without a date to reconvene. Lincoln organizes a Delaware Corporation and the remaining members of Congress begin functioning as a Board of Directors.
  11. 1862: The “Corporate Congress”—a body of men no different than the Board of Directors of IBM, change the meaning of a single word —only and explicitly for use within their corporation.  That word is “person”.  From then on the word “person” is deemed to mean “corporation” for federal government purposes.  (37th “Congress”– Second Session, Chapter 49, Section 68.)
  12. 1863: Lincoln signs the Lieber Code as Commander in Chief and puts the Union Army, the Grand Army of the Republic, in charge of the nation’s future and money supply.  A day later, he bankrupts the original United States (Commercial Company).
  13. 1865: Lee’s Army surrenders to Grant and a general armistice is declared.  The Southern States are in ruins and under military occupation by the Union.  The original Northern States are bankrupt.   Foreign banks are in control of the new “United States of America, Inc.” and the Union Army reigns supreme. Over the next two years President Andrew Johnson will three times publicly declare peace on the land jurisdiction of the Continental United States, but peace is never declared in the international  Jurisdiction of the Sea controlled by the Federal United States under the trusteeship of the British Monarch.
  14. 1868: The Corporate Congress writes itself a new Corporate Constitution, called “the Constitution of the United States of America” and palms off this look-alike, sound-alike  private corporate document “as if” it were the actual Constitution.  This is  fraud on many levels.  The Constitution of the United States of America purposefully sought to confuse and delude people into thinking it was the actual Equity Contract obligating the States to receive services and subrogate their international jurisdiction to the federal government.
  15. 1871: The Corporate Congress begins to set up shop for itself by creating a separate government for the District of Columbia.  The initial effort fails but seven years later the Washington DC Municipality is created as an independent international city state run as a plenary oligarchy by the members of “Congress”.   Also in 1871, the Corporate Congress claimed to own all United States corporations— 41st “Congress”– Third Session, Chapters 62, 63, 64, and 65.
  16. 1874-1885: All the actual States on the land are reorganized and at the same time completely new “Federal States” are created and new “State Constitutions” are written for them.  The original States on the land are renamed in this process.  The original State of Ohio operating the land jurisdiction became the Ohio State, while the usurping “Federal State”— merely a corporate franchise of the United States of America, Inc. operating in the international Jurisdiction of the Sea—took over the name “State of Ohio”.
  17. 1900-1904: Still lusting after more power for itself, the Corporate Congress set up a second shop for itself and obtained permission to do it from the Supreme Court in a series of cases known as The Insular Tariff Cases.  As with setting up the Washington DC Municipality as a foreign city-state on our shores and running it as their own little oligarchy, the “Congress” now took the “federal territories and possessions” and made a new “union” of “American states”—-Puerto Rico, Guam, et alia—and began calling it “the United States of America (Minor)”.    They just forgot to add the (Minor) part of the name from then on, and let people assume that all the repugnant laws they passed governing this “Constitutional Democracy” also applied to the Continental United States.
  18. 1912-1913: A private association of European and American banks calling themselves “The Federal Reserve” bought the governmental services corporation known as “The United States of America, Inc.” and its “State” franchises as a business venture, and began operating such familiar agencies as The United States Department of Agriculture and The United States Department of Transportation as private, for-profit businesses—without telling anyone.   They exercised the “government powers” they didn’t really possess in a vast fraud scheme in collusion with members of “Congress” to institute a fiat monetary system and misused their position of trust to put competitors out of business, set up monopolies, rig commodity markets, and commit other acts of blatant self-interested criminality and fraud.
  19. 1917: Engaging in a war for profit, Congress and their Banker Bosses passed the War Powers Act and the Trading With the Enemy Act, and numerous other illegal and repugnant “Acts” pertaining only to the Federal United States and the international Jurisdiction of the Sea, but presented them to the public as if this claptrap pertained to the actual States and People on the land of the Continental United States.  Deceived by this venal and purposeful fraud, millions of Americans complied with what they believed to be the “Law” passed by a legitimate Congress acting as deputies of the States and the People.
  20. 1918-1933: Once in control of the monetary system the “Federal Reserve” increased the monetary supply exponentially, causing the “Roaring Twenties”.  They built the house of cards and on October 29, 1933, they collapsed it—deliberately.   This enabled them to put thousands of competitors out of business, allowed them to buy commodities, land, and labor for dirt cheap, and to manipulate the value of the dollar to their benefit.
  21. 1933-1940, The banks took full advantage of the “national emergency” they created and the Congress did everything the bankers required:  The Sheppard-Towner Act, the Buck Act, the Alien Registration Act, the Social Security Act(s), the Emergency Banking Act, and more.   The purpose of all this was to lay claim to the labor and the assets of the States and People of the Continental United States by securing “private contracts” with them, enabling the perpetrators to “represent them” and to set up corporations “in their names”.    Hundreds of millions of Americans were told that they “had to” sign up for Social Security and have a Social Security Number in order to have a job, that it was “the Law” and that “Congress had passed it” and so, believing it to be a lawful government mandate—when in fact it was a corporate fraud scheme— they were subscribed en masse.  Remembering now the actions of the Corporate Congress in 1862 redefining the word “person” to mean “corporation” for federal purposes, and their later claim made in 1871 to hold ownership interest in all United States corporations and seeing that their actions from 1933 to 1940 resulted in redefining the estates of living Americans as public trusts—that is, as a form of corporation— you can see that the “Corporate Congress” has claimed to own living Americans as assets belonging to their corporation and has also claimed to control and own their private assets — in flagrant violation of the Geneva Convention Protocols Volume II, Article 3, and in equally flagrant violation of the 1926 International Conventions on Slavery, and in violation of every lawful and moral duty, commercial contract, and trust indenture owed to the Continental United States and the American People. It is also apparent that all of this – every claim, every salvage lien, every title to land and property held under color of law—being held against the Continental United States and the living civilian inhabitants of the Continental United States, is pure, self-interested commercial fraud created and perpetuated under conditions of semantic deceit, constructive fraud, misrepresentation, and mischaracterization by the management of the Federal United States, the various governmental services corporations doing business as some form of “United States”  and the British Government.
  22. 1940-present:  Among the first actions to be taken by the criminals was to “register” all live births.  This established a claim of ownership on the baby and his or her estate, benefiting the “State of Ohio” or other “Federal State franchise”.   This act of identity theft exercised via an undisclosed and forced contract with the Mother of the child, allowed each ”State” franchise to control the name and the property of the baby.   The perpetrators promptly set up new “State franchises” benefiting themselves using names styled like this:  “Joseph Quincy Public” and new “Municipal franchises” set up under the auspices of the Washington DC Municipality using NAMES styled like this:  “JOHN QUINCY PUBLIC”.
The only purpose for creating these franchises structured as various kinds of trusts—was to act as a means for the privately owned governmental services corporations to hypothecate debt against the labor of the living people and their private property assets and to exercise control over them amounting to slavery.

Oath Keepers -- 2016 Game Plan



I didn't go on this call, 

because I was indisposed at the time, 

and so far, I don't find an audio replay yet 

but a general outline is below. 


 Oath Keepers Members Only Conference Call Tonight with Stewart Rhodes

Snip>>>

Stewart Rhodes and others will be discussing the 2016 game plan, some of
which is posted below.

We are scheduled for two hours but it could go longer if there is enough
interest. Most of the question and answer time will be handled at the end.

Access information will be provided when you register.

Space is limited to the first 500 people to join (though we will increase
that if the response is overwhelming).

Before reading this list of goals/gameplan for 2016, please go read the two
Matt Bracken pieces I posted here:

https://www.oathkeepers.net/forum/sh...ad.php?t=51190
<https://www.oathkeepers.net/forum/showthread.php?t=51190>

Please read Bracken's piece, Tet Take Two, and also his "What I Saw at the
Coup" as critical background and then we can have a "chat."

https://westernrifleshooters.wordpre...ean-offensive/

https://westernrifleshooters.wordpre...w-at-the-coup/

And as further prep, some "big picture" things to keep in mind regarding
our strategic weaknesses and our target audiences.

*STRATEGIC WEAKNESSES: *

Our greatest weaknesses as a people are:




*1. No local security (no militia). We have no real militia, capable of
preserving life, liberty, and property in a serious emergency, such as a
grid down situation, or economic collapse. See Argentina and Bosnia for how
it goes, security wise. 2. No strategic food reserves. We have no way to
feed our population in a grid down event, or in the wake of a catastrophic
economic collapse. *

Those are "extinction level" systemic weaknesses we need to fix or at least
minimize, before the "perfect storm" of manufactured destruction hits us
(economic collapse, power grid collapse, unleashing of ISIS terror cells,
gang warfare, etc).

During the Cold War, this nation had a three year strategic grain reserve,
capable of feeding every man, woman and child. Before that, the majority
lived in rural areas and on farms.

Now we have NO grain reserve, and most of our population is urban, not
rural. We cannot feed our population during a catastrophic collapse. For
example, if the grid goes down, such as in an EMP attack or even a cyber or
physical attack, millions could die in a great die off.

You can't resist if you are dead from starvation, and your food storage and
gear does you no good if you are overrun and killed by some gang for your
supplies. You *must* have food, and you *must* have security.

And your community will not survive without food, and they will not survive
without security. They must have both. Nor will they resist the temptation
to accept martial law unless they have food and security.

So, food and security are elemental needs. They are primal, and have always
been there throughout history. You can't escape them. You need to eat, and
you need to be able to protect your food, shelter, land, your children,
etc.

And as part of security you must have INTELLIGENCE since you need to know
what is going on (who is a threat, and who is doing what) before you can
act to defend or to attack the enemy. There can be NO effective security
without intelligence. And that is why I brought Sam Culper of Forward
Observer Magazine onboard. He will be developing our Security elements and
standards for CPT, and he will be assisted by Jerry and others who are
experienced in intel and/or interested in Intel work (we are already
talking and working on it).

*So, consider intelligence to be a new, sixth prong of CPT skillsets. *

And, of course, you need communications, and you need power, clean water,
fuel, etc. And you need medical support and supplies. In other words, all
that is in our CPT program.

That is why I started the CPT Program. But I fear we are running out of
time, and I think we may in fact see that perfect storm hit within the next
six months.

*So, we should presume, and plan, and act, as if we only have six months to
act before the crap hits the fan. If it doesn't, then we regroup and do
another six months sprint. Rinse, repeat. *


*OUR CORE TARGET AUDIENCES (THE ELEMENTS OF THE AMERICAN WARRIOR CLASS): *

The three most critical audiences out there who we MUST have on our side
are:

*1. the active duty military. *That is where the conventional military
force of this nation is. A secondary, but increasingly important segment is
the standing professional police forces. They are becoming part of the
standing military. If the military is on your side, you win. Period. If
they are against you, then you either lose, period, or you are in for a
long, bloody, hellish fight. Just a reality. There is no more important
audience, or ally. Even if all cops are against us, if the military is for
us, we win. And if both are for us, all the easier. Now, I am NOT saying
"resistance is futile" if the military is all against us. But it will be a
whole lot harder to win, right? It's a no-brainer.

*2. the military veterans, first and foremost, and then the police
veterans. *That is where the unconventional or "irregular" military force
of this nation is. So far as the trained elements of it. The great mass of
American veterans are the second most important audience because of their
training and experience. And now, thanks to the wars over the past fifteen
years in Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere, we have a massive pool of combat
veterans. Critical audience.

*3. The gun owners, the hunters, the rural Americans.* Basically, the
"traditional Americans" who are the great mass of potential unconventional
military force and support for any resistance, and support for any
political change or activism. I won't write off the city folks, but the
fact remains that it is the rural folks who are more resistant and capable
of resistance, and who are stronger (see the above noted "extinction level"
weakness of no strategic food reserves).

These folks are the ones us veterans need to train, organize, and equip.
They are our great force multipliers.

All of the above can be called the American Warrior Class. it is the
military force of the nation, in a very real sense, but also the force of
resistance, if harnessed properly. Yes, criminal gangs, cartels, and
terrorist cells, and radicalized Islamacists are also military forces, but
they are on the other side, and will remain there, so they are not a target
audience for us.

Now, again, I will not give up on the city folks, because some of them will
side with us, but the rural/urban divide is real, and is being made worse
by enemy design. We should strive to counter it, but I don't consider the
urban populations to be critical audiences. They are secondary.

Most of the infantry still comes from the country. Most gun owners are also
in rural areas, though that is changing with the popularity of concealed
carry for self defense.

The enemy has to try to turn that American warrior class against itself, to
get it to fight itself. And that means cops and active duty military
fighting gun owners and fighting veterans. And it means veterans fighting
each other. That is what the enemy MUST do.

What we must do is counter that agenda, and to do that, we need credibility
in the eyes of that warrior class.

If we try methods that they just don't see as credible (like Ammon Bundy
did) we lose. Period. Doesn't matter how many sincere activists think those
methods are right. It is what the warrior class thinks that matters most.

With that in mind, and also while keeping in mind our need to counter the
relentless demonization campaign against us and against all patriots, here
is our 2016 game plan:


*2016 GAME PLAN (SO FAR): *

*1. Anti-ISIS/anti-Active Shooter. **Standing up anti-ISIS/anti-active
shooter "Minuteman" Quick Reaction Forces in each community *(made up of
volunteers from the community whether Oath Keepers members or not), with a
special focus on protecting schools, and teaching active shooter response
to the public, in general. This will help address the very real security
threats of radicalized islamacists coming in among "refugees" from Muslim
countries as well as the threat from radicalized American Muslims It will
be a tough balance to do that right, but we need to do it (not be 100%
anti-all Muslims, but also recognizing the reality of the threat). Focus
will be on the very real terrorism threat, after San Bernardino. We can use
that to get people off the couch and forming up the community defenses they
will need in the coming economic collapse. Many refuse to see that economic
reality, but they do see ISIS, so let's use that. And, this will also focus
on the more general threat of active shooters, and school shootings in
particular.

And the ultimate goal is, as always, a true revitalization and restoration
of the militia, which would be all of the able-bodied people in the
community, all organized, trained, and equipped to work TOGETHER to protect
the lives, liberty, and property of the community. And, on the way there,
we will continue to train and organize neighborhood watches, church
security teams, community civil defense, sheriff posses, etc That has not
changed.

But the anti-ISIS QRF is a way to turbo-charge those goals and make it
happen faster. It is a real threat, and this is a real solution.

And along with it, an individual commitment to be a "minuteman" who will
run toward the sounds of the gunfire at his local school rather than away
from it. And a commitment to have the weapon, ammo, chest rig, body armor,
IFAK, etc handy at all times. It is an important mental shift.

*2. Anti-cartel border operations, starting in TX. *We will be holding a
Texas Veterans Summit on April 10 in Dripping Springs, TX to launch a much
anticipated Oath Keepers Texas border operation. The call will go out first
to Texas veterans (military and police) first. The call out will be
formally issued by Retired Texas General Brown (US Army and Texas National
Guard). After it is launched, it will be opened up to veterans and patriots
from across the country, but we want it to be launched first by Texans so
it is a Texan lead and driven operation with longevity. The mission will be
to guard private ranches and ranching families along the Texas border, to
prevent the cartels from taking those ranches over as has been done on the
Mexican side. The US government has failed to keep the border secure, and
Obama essentially ordered the Border Patrol to stop doing their job. Again,
this is an issue that most Americans on our side of the fence can see and
understand, so let's use it to get them off the couch, especially in the
border states.

*3. Operation Backstop. Backing up good cops, with overwatch while they get
gas, coffee, etc. *Our SC chapter is already doing this and have been very
successful. They started doing that after the TX cop was shot in the back
of the head while getting gas. Now we will take it national. This is a
great hearts and minds winner in our local community, as well as being
great for our image nationally. it makes it harder for the radial left to
demonize us a "anti-government extremists" or "domestic terrorists" when we
are out there protecting cops from cop killers. And we will have more
credibility when opposing Orwellian police state activities and
unconstitutional and abusive police actions if we are also out there
protecting the good cops from assassination.

*4. Family Safe and Missing Veterans Search and Rescue (and other Search
and Rescue). *

*Family Safe* is a program we launched years ago but it never really got
off the ground because we lacked the structure to implement it. Well, now
with CPT, we have enough structure to get it done. It is a standing offer
in our community to protect the families of current serving military,
national guard, police, fire fighters, EMTs etc while they are out doing
their jobs during emergencies, or if their family is threatened, such as a
specific terrorist threat to kill the family of military (including
veterans) or police. We have already seen Muslim males paying "visits" to
the homes of military servicemembers, scaring their wives and children, for
example. Even if your local military, police, fire, etc don't take you up
on the offer, just making the offer wins hearts and minds. Another closely
related aspect is to plan for the protection of our own families during
disasters and civil strife of any kind. And that is where the "Home Guard"
aspect of CPT and neighborhood watches comes in (where the older and less
fit serve as guards over homes and non-combatants while the more fit go out
to do field work, such as disaster relief, search and rescue, and security
operations).

*Missing Veteran Search and Rescue*. See www.missingveterans.com and also
their facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/missingveteranscom

Oath Keepers should assist this org in finding lost veterans (such as vets
with Alzheimers) across the country, working with local Search and Rescue
and law enforcement, and even doing it on our own if no one else is willing
in our area. That is an excellent "hearts and minds" mission, and also gets
us involved with search and rescue in general, which is also very worthy,
and all of that gives our people excellent training and experience in land
navigation, man tracking, back-country medicine, wilderness survival,
incident command structure, etc. that can be useful across the board. This
is a good fit with CPT, but also incredibly valuable for our overall PR and
image, as well as our hearts and minds campaigns in our communities.


*5. GUN RIGHTS, and fighting the threats to our gun rights.* This is the
single most unifying issue among conservatives, libertarians,
constitutionalists, rural Americans, "traditional" Americans, etc. Nothing
else comes close. A good example is the very successful Priest River, Idaho
standup where we helped to get the VA to back off on trying to disarm an
Idaho Army veteran. That is the single most useful and positive example of
us standing up against government abuse that we have in recent history. Way
more useful for us than Sugar Pine Mine or White Hope Mine. And a similar
situation is likely happening right now somewhere. That whole issue of the
VA violating veteran gun rights on trumped up bullshit is golden for us. It
involves violation of the Second Amendment and also violation of due
process. It is a golden winner. We need to be THE org standing up for those
veterans, including with protests right outside the offices of any VA
official or doctor who sends out those disgusting letters to veterans. And
we see similar plans to use government watch lists to arbitrarily strip
people of their right to bear arms without a conviction, in violation of
due process. We need to focus on all of those issues, and stand against
them.

*6. College Oath Keepers. *And college student memberships. We will be
forming college student groups and offering free training for students on
the Constitution and also self defense training with a focus on defense
against active shooters (our S.T.O.P. Program - Students Taking Over
Protection). We will be directly countering the absurd and Orwellian "Safe
Spaces" and PC driven violation of free speech and assembly we have seen on
many campuses. Here is just one example:
http://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/02/17...ntcmp=obinsite
<http://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/02/17/melissa-click-justifies-her-actions-in-controversial-videos.html?intcmp=ob_article_sidebar_video&intcmp=obinsite>

The college groups will be vital in countering the brainwashing and
conditioning those young minds will have gotten to be passive victims, to
submit to violence, and to think that the Constitution is some ever
changing, "living" document. We will infuse the American warrior values
into them along with timeless constitutional values. And these chapters
will also help us recruit the returning veterans who are going to school.
And they can educate those who will go on to be police or military
officers. It is a win both ways.

*NOTE: *All of the above presents us as the certified good guys in white
hats. Anti-terrorist, anti-cartel, pro-cop (at least pro-good cop) in a
very direct way by protecting cops, and protecting military families,
anti-active shooter, pro-veteran, and pro-free speech. That makes it harder
to demonize us, and therefore also harder for the DOJ to justify going
after Oath Keepers who were at Bundy Ranch. It all fits together.

*7. A Trucker Division for Oath Keepers. *We will have a special membership
for truckers, and will train them in gathering intel, and integrate them
into our intelligence program. VITAL eyes and ears on the road, and also
vital personnel in hard times. We will, in return, plug them into our
support network to aid them if they need help while traveling, and to
protect their families when they are on the road, or if they are stranded
away from home.


*8, The Economy. *It is becoming clearer every day that the economy is on
its last legs, and people need to prepare to ride out that storm. Even
people who did not see it for years, while Brandon and others screamed in
their faces, are now starting to see it. We need to use that to again get
them off the couch and doing something productive, like storing food for
themselves and others, forming up neighborhood watches, etc. We need to
teach people to grow "liberty gardens" and support resilient local
economies and farmers. But first they need to see the danger, and the
systemic risks.

*9. Strategic Food Reserve. *This is, really, the hardest one on this list
to make happen. We can form up ad-hoc security on the fly if we have to,
but it is hard to improvise food. So, how do we go from a nation with NO
strategic food reserves, to one with a strategic food reserve, in six
months? Is it even possible? if so, then how? This is the one where I am
most at a loss. But let's roll up our sleeves and figure it out. Of course,
making food storage a vital part of each and every other project is part of
the answer, but there has to be something else we can do. Let's brainstorm
on it.

*10. General Preparedness, CPT, and training. *The full range of CPT topics
should be ALL OVER our site, but they are not. Let's fix that. I will have
Larry give Rick Moon posting access so he can start posting up training
videos, articles, etc. but that is also open to all of you. Just be sore it
is credible and legitimate information. Any questions on that, bounce it
off of Rick Moon and me. But let's get more "how to" articles up on our
site on general preparedness, food storage, and the full range of CPT
topics.

*11. Exposing Government corruption and standing against violation of
people's rights. *The more we point out the very "clear and present danger"
of government abuse of our rights, violations of the Constitution, and the
rampant corruption at every level, the better. That attacks and undermines
their legitimacy and also builds up our image as a watchdog org in defense
of civil liberties. And that has to go for any such abuse, whether done to
"conservatives" or leftists. We will have to tread carefully when going
into police abuse, but we do need to do that too. But let's keep it
balanced with "good-cop" stories.

12. Direct outreach at military bases, right out front of the main gate,
and holding meetings outside those bases. And especially outside of Spec
Ops bases. And that will include more billboards.

Justice Scalia Spent Final Hours With Members Of Secret Society Affiliated With Bohemian Grove

Justice Scalia Spent Final Hours With Members Of Secret Society Affiliated With Bohemian Grove

Free Thought Project – by John Vibes
Cibolo Creek Ranch, TX – Since the recent death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, there has been a great deal of suspicion about the details surrounding his death. First, the fact that an autopsy was not performed on Scalia raises suspicion, but then after it was reported that he was found with a pillow over his head, many began to suspect foul play.
This week, another interesting fact has been reported by the mainstream media, which adds an additional layer of mystery to the story.  
According to the Washington Post, Scalia spent his final moments with members of a secret society which has ties to the Bohemian Grove. The group is called the International Order of St. Hubertus, and they are an Austrian secret society that dates back to the 1600s.
The Post pointed to public records which show that Scalia was at the ranch with a number of men that he was connected to through the International Order of St. Hubertus. Scalia had met with these same men on numerous other occasions, and once at this specific ranch.
The Post reports:
Members of the worldwide, male-only society wear dark-green robes emblazoned with a large cross and the motto “Deum Diligite Animalia Diligentes,” which means “Honoring God by honoring His creatures,” according to the group’s website. Some hold titles, such as Grand Master, Prior and Knight Grand Officer. The Order’s name is in honor of Hubert, the patron saint of hunters and fishermen.”
elEscorial
Cibolo Creek Ranch owner John Poindexter admitted in an email that members of the group were, in fact, at the ranch at the time of Scalia’s death, but he claims not to be aware of any connection between the two.
“There is nothing I can add to your observation that among my many guests at Cibolo Creek Ranch over the years some members of the International Order of St. Hubertus have been numbered. I am aware of no connection between that organization and Justice Scalia,” Poindexter said.
However, records show that Scalia has met with these men on numerous occasions, so there obviously was a connection.
The group began in Europe hundreds of years ago but opened their US chapters in 1966, during a ceremony at the famous Bohemian Club in San Francisco, which is one of the most elite and secretive places in the country, and is infamous for hosting meetings for secret societies.
The group documents this fact on their website, which says that “George Wood was appointed Grand Prior and founded the American Chapter in 1968. The first Investiture of American Knights took place at the Bohemian Club in San Francisco. The ceremony was presided over by then Grand Master Karl Messany.”
While the group claims to be a humble organization for hunting enthusiasts, the creepy costumes and rituals, along with the Bohemian Grove connection has certainly caught the attention of many people who are following the case.+

Militia Members Balk at Shackles in Oregon Jail

Militia Members Balk at Shackles in Oregon Jail

Courthouse News Service – by Karina Brown
PORTLAND, Ore. (CN) – A family close to the Bundys harmonized on religious songs in the lobby of the federal courthouse while a handful of the erstwhile Oregon militia challenged the dissonance of being held in shackles while presumed innocent.
The seven siblings of the Sharp family sang about finding your way in the dark guided only by a flashlight. The eldest, Victoria Sharp, was in the truck driven by militia member LaVoy Finicum just before he was gunned down by the FBI. 
In the courtroom, five of the 26 defendants charged with conspiracy to keep federal employees from doing their jobs during the 41-day occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge groped their way through objections to U.S. District Judge Anna J. Brown’s description of their rights.
“You are presumed innocent,” Brown said at the arraignment hearing on Wednesday. “That can only change in one of two ways. Either the government can prove that you are guilty of a crime or you can voluntarily and knowingly give up that presumption of innocence by pleading guilty. But I don’t expect any of you to choose the second option.”
One by one, Brown asked all of the defendants how they answered the charges against them and whether they understood their rights.
They all pleaded not guilty and most answered Brown’s questions with either a curt “yes ma’am” or a nod of their heads.
But five defendants – Ammon Bundy, his brother Ryan, David Fry, Ryan Payne and Jason Patrick – took issue with the fact that, despite Brown’s assertion that they are innocent until proven guilty, they’re locked up.
Montana electrician and militia member Ryan Payne was the first to speak on that point.
“It’s difficult to understand the presumption of innocence when I’ve spent the last month in jail, led around in chains,” Payne told the judge.
“I understand your point,” Brown said. “Thank you.”
Next up was Ryan Bundy.
“We are being treated as guilty, so I don’t understand the presumption of innocence,” he said.
Jason Patrick was more pointed in his criticism.
“I understand I have no rights at all because the federal government can do whatever it wants,” Patrick said to a smattering of applause.
Final Malheur Refuge holdout David Fry echoed the other defendants’ concerns.
“I understand my rights,” Fry said. “It’s just weird to be presumed innocent while I’m shackled up.”
After everyone had confirmed their understanding of their rights, ringleader Ammon Bundy asked if he could address the court. His lawyer, Lissa Casey, explained that he wanted to make a statement about his belief that his continued custody violates the presumption of innocence.
“No,” Brown said, denying Ammon Bundy’s request to speak.
Casey said Bundy wanted to be released from jail so he could walk his lawyers through the crime scene at the refuge. The FBI will escort attorneys of all defendants through the refuge between noon on Thursday and 5 p.m. on Friday.
Brown also denied that request.
The current charges carry a maximum of six years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
But U.S. Attorneys Ethan Knight and Geoffrey Barrow said Wednesday that more charges were on the way, now that the FBI has wrapped up its processing of the crime scene at the refuge.
That chapter of the investigation may be over, but there is still a lot of work to do before the government will be ready for trial, Knight told Brown.
“The investigation is ongoing,” Knight said. “There are firearms to process, hundreds of sensitive cultural artifacts to review and dozens of electronics to process. This is unprecedented in terms of the volume of information at the crime scene.”
Knight said the new indictment, which will consolidate all 26 defendants and introduce new charges, would likely be ready by mid-June.
Brown wasn’t having it.
“I don’t believe I can compel the government to bring charges against the defendants, but I can say that it had better do so promptly, especially with the assertion that people who are presumed innocent are in custody. Ninety days is simply unbelievable to me. You need to get your resources in line.”
The trial is set to begin April 29, but the government has asked Brown to waive the defendants’ right to a trial within 70 days of their initial appearances because of the complexity of the case. In fact, the feds have suggested the government may not be ready for trial until the spring of 2017.
Brown balked at such a long delay, but asked for guidance on the decision.
“We are certainly not going to wait until the early months of 2017 to begin. But I do want to hear about relevant case law, especially from the Ninth Circuit. Is there precedent where the judges found error in a decision to declare complexity in cases similar to this one?” Brown said.
As the hearing ended, a woman in the gallery stood. Dressed in a pink sweatshirt emblazoned with Minnie Mouse, who was wearing a dress printed with the American flag, the woman held a sign overhead.
“Release our people,” the sign read.

A Warning To The Feds On Incremental Prosecutions Of The Liberty Movement

 

 I have bolded and emphasized several key passages,

and will leave it to the reader to underscore other key passages

as to what this voice speaks to you.  

A Warning To The Feds On Incremental Prosecutions Of The Liberty Movement

Alt-Market – by Brandon Smith
At the very onset of what would become the Soviet Empire, Vladimir Lenin decreed the creation of a national internal army called the “Cheka.” The Cheka were handed very broad police powers and tasked with the disruption and elimination of any form of dissent within the communist system. Lenin launched what would later be known as the “Red Terror”, in which nearly every Russian population center had an established Cheka office of operations using surveillance, infiltration, nighttime raids, imprisonment, torture and execution to silence opposition to the authority of the state.  
Some of these people were active rebels, some were outspoken political opponents and journalists, others were merely average citizens wrongly accused by neighbors or personal enemies. The Cheka created a society of fear and suspicion in which no one could be trusted and little criticism was spoken above a whisper anywhere, even in one’s own home.
It is important to note, however, that the dominance of the Cheka was established incrementally, not all at once.
Agents of the state began their “cleansing” of the Russian population by targeting specific groups at opportune times and worked their way through the citizenry at an exponential pace. The most intelligent, effective and dangerous activists and rebels were slated for destruction first, as they represented a kind of leadership mechanism by which the rest of the population might be mobilized or inspired. More innocuous organizations (like Christian churches and rural farmers) were persecuted as background noise while the political mop-up was underway.
Through this incrementalism, the communists were able to intern or eradicate vast numbers of potential opponents without the rest of Russians raising objections. The general populace was simply thankful that the eye of the Cheka had not been turned upon them, and as long as it was some other group of people unrelated to their daily life that disappeared in the night, they would keep their heads down and their mouths shut.
I would point out that the communists were very careful and deliberate in ensuring that the actions of the internal police were made valid through law and rationalized as a part of “class struggle.” Such laws were left so open to interpretation that literally any evil committed could later be vindicated. Man-made law is often a more powerful weapon than any gun, tank, plane or missile, because it triggers apathy within the masses. For some strange reason, when corrupt governments legalize their criminality through legislation or executive decree, the citizenry suddenly treats that criminality as legitimate and excusable.
Incremental prosecution and oppression is effective when the establishment wishes to avoid outright confrontation with a population. Attempt to snatch up a million people at one time, and you will have an immediate rebellion on your hands. Snatch up a million people one man at a time, or small groups at a time, and people do not know what to think or how to respond. They determine to hope that the authorities never get to them, that it will stop after a few initial arrests, or they hope that if they censor themselves completely, they will never be noticed.
In fact, corrupt governments issue warrants of arrest for a handful of dissenters and initiate imprisonment in a very public manner in the beginning with the express purpose of making examples and inspiring self censorship in the masses so that the authorities do not have to expend large amounts of resources to fight a more complex rebellion.

I bring up the historic example of the Cheka and incrementalism because a trend is brewing within our current establishment by which I believe a similar (if not more sterilized) brand of oppressive action is being planned against the liberty movement. 

After the debacle in Burns, Oregon during the refuge standoff, federal officials immediately began a subtle campaign in the media promoting internal police powers that when examined in an honest light, are truly anti-liberty.

It remains my personal position according to the evidence I have seen that the refuge standoff was likely influenced by at least one if not more federal provocateurs and that Ammon Bundy was “encouraged” in his choice of actions and location by this person or persons. The goal? I can only guess that the intent was to trap the liberty movement in a Catch-22 scenario; either we join the poorly planned and executed standoff on some of the worst defensive ground possible and risk everything on one centralized event, or, we refuse to participate in the strategy and watch helplessly as a group of people, many with good intentions but little tactical sense or training, are arrested or killed. Either we gamble everything on the worst possible terms, or, we avoid the gamble and watch as the entire movement is made to look weak or incompetent by association with a few.

The majority of the movement chose the latter action, rightly I feel. Burns was no Bundy Ranch — everything about it felt rigged. And though there were many angry anonymous voices calling us “sunshine patriots” and “keyboard warriors” because we would not participate, apparently none of those loud mouths ever showed up in Burns either, so I am assuming they finally saw the wisdom in our decision.

It would seem as though the feds did not get exactly what they wanted out of the refuge standoff, but they have decided to squeeze as much advantage out of the event as possible.

Cliven Bundy was arrested after arriving by plane in Portland, Oregon, not on any charges relating to the refuge and his son Ammon, but on charges stemming from the Bundy Ranch standoff of 2014.
These charges include a strange and very broad legal measure relating to “interference with the duties of federal officials.” This in particular should be disconcerting to all of us, for “interference” could be any number of activities.
Any duties of federal officials that are not moral or constitutional should be interfered with in a tactically intelligent manner whenever possible. Such charges are a deliberate anathema to civil disobedience designed to counter immoral actions by government authorities. For any opposition could be deemed “interference” given a twisting of precedence, and thus treated as illegal.
In my recent article “Liberty Activists And ISIS Will Soon Be Treated As Identical Threats,” I examined statements made by the Justice Department’s chief of national security, John Carlin, in an article published by Reuters. Carlin and the Justice Department have made it clear that they intend to apply rules of prosecution used for foreign terrorist organizations to “domestic extremists.” The Oregon standoff was specifically mentioned as an example of such extremism.
Carlin claimed that domestic extremists represent a “clear and present danger,” alluding to the “Clear And Present Danger Doctrine” allowing the government in “times of national crisis” to prosecute almost any citizen giving “material support” to enemies of the state. “Material support” in the past has even included verbal opposition to government policies. Meaning, Carlin is testing the waters of material support laws and such tests may target liberty movement speakers and journalists along with anyone involved in physical opposition. As with the Cheka, no one is really safe.
These charges are also being brought in a retroactive manner, long after the supposed crimes have been committed as we have seen with Cliven Bundy. Meaning, the feds plan to retain warrants and prolong charges, only arresting people later when they think they can get away with it. This is where the incrementalism comes in…
Rumors of further indictments have surfaced possibly including dozens of people involved in the Bundy Ranch standoff. And because of the nature of the incremental game the government is playing, verification is difficult until the arrests are activated.
It has come to my attention from personal sources that there may be a lot of truth to the rumors of pending or retroactive indictments, and that the FBI in particular may be biding its time and waiting to bring charges when particular people are at their most vulnerable and when the movement is less likely to react. These sources have indicated that the federal government is seeking to work around the public relations problems of standoff scenarios like Ruby Ridge, Waco, and Bundy Ranch. The feds may claim that they have “seen the light” in terms of avoiding outright mass murder, but I believe they have just found a better way to sneak past public opinion.
If they can manipulate the liberty movement into participation in poorly planned standoffs like Burns, Oregon, they will. Such standoffs are doomed from their inception and can even be controlled from within by agents provocateur. They are not a real threat.
If a standoff occurs organically, as it did at Bundy Ranch in Nevada, and public support is on the side of the liberty movement, then the establishment will simply back off and pluck activists from their homes or at the airport months later.
It is incumbent upon me to offer a warning to federal agencies in the event that incremental prosecution of liberty activists is truly a strategy they are planning to carry out: It is the general consensus of many in the liberty movement that ANY further arrests predicated on activism at Bundy Ranch or similar opposition events in the past to Bureau Of Land Management abuses of power will result in further and expanded engagements by activists. That is to say, such arrests and indictments will not be allowed to continue.
This is not a threat, this is fair warning to government agencies that they are walking a razor’s edge. Incremental prosecutions and dismantling of the liberty movement will not be tolerated; they represent a non-negotiable line in the sand. The feds may or may not care what the consequences will be for crossing this line. They may even think they want such consequences. Regardless, consequences there will be.
While the refuge occupiers essentially handed their heads to the feds on a platter, and the movement was not able to salvage the situation in any viable manner, this does not mean that liberty activists will not take measures during future events depending on the circumstances. Federal agencies may be quick to forget the massive response at Bundy Ranch. This is a mistake. They should probably expect a similar response, if not a more aggressive one, if further arrests are undertaken.
With the ethereal nature of criminal charges like “material support” or “interference with federal officials,” due process becomes a bit of joke. You see, federal agents and agencies, you have to take into account the reality that the liberty movement is well aware of the government push to remove due process altogether. With the AUMF and the NDAA, among other executive actions, we realize that the friendly mask of due process is worn by government today, but not necessarily tomorrow.
If the movement gives ground and does nothing while dozens or more are retroactively imprisoned one case at a time for opposing federal abuse, then how long will it be before the rest of us are imprisoned on even broader charges? How long before the mask comes off and the rendition and indefinite detention provisions of the AUMF and the NDAA come into play? Do you really expect the movement to put faith in due process given the circumstances? Of course you do not.
I would venture to guess that the feds think that any opposition that does arise during the execution of warrants against liberty activists will be “easily managed.” This would be a mistake.
We have seen this all before in the passive sublimation of past societies. We recognize the signs of trespasses to come. And if such trespasses are brought upon the liberty movement or the population at large, then many of us will adopt the attitude that there is not much left to lose.
Personally, I do not look forward to this kind of fight, but I have no illusions that it can be avoided given the course our country has taken. Federal agencies have deemed it a matter of national security to watch us all very closely. They should keep in mind, though, that we are also watching them.
