2011 National Gang Threat Assessment – Emerging Trends

The FBI estimates there are 1.4 million gang members in the USA today, supporting 33,000 organized gangs. Thats equal to about 120 Army Divisions
from a hostile army invading the US. When TSHTF are you and your small circle of trusted associates going to be able to fight off even one of these gangs? Not likely unless you have planned and organized well in advance. And how many times can you succeed? Can You keep it up for the long term, likely years? Have you trained and prepared better than they have?
I personally am going to have a hard time telling people who were average citizens who failed to heed the warnings, to keep moving and don't come back, when they show up expecting me to share my home and security with them, but thats what I will do to protect myself and family. After the dust settles and most of the MZBs (and unprepared citizens) are dead, we will start aligning with other prepper groups and rebuild our community.
If that sounds too grim for

you to even comprehend then you are one of the "unprepared citizens" I am refering to.
Its coming folks, alot sooner than anyone realized.
Graviora Manent Semper Paratus

"Gangs encourage members, associates, and relatives to obtain law enforcement, judiciary, or legal employment in order to gather information on rival gangs and law enforcement operations. Gang infiltration of the military continues to pose a significant criminal threat, as members of at least 53 gangs have been identified on both domestic and international military installations. Gang members who learn advanced weaponry and combat techniques in the military are at risk of employing these skills on the street when they return to their communities.
Gang members are acquiring high-powered, military-style weapons and equipment which poses a significant threat because of the potential to engage in lethal encounters with law enforcement officers and civilians. Typically firearms are acquired through illegal purchases; straw purchases via surrogates or middle-men, and thefts from individuals, vehicles, residences and commercial establishments. Gang members also target military and law enforcement officials, facilities, and vehicles to obtain weapons, ammunition, body armor, police gear, badges, uniforms, and official identification. "

Who Wants to be the Last?

Believe it not, the subject does come up. None of us minded getting our number called when there was no end in sight; hey, people die, they get shot without even knowing it: quick, gone before they ever knew what hit ‘em, known far and wide as the “Express Ticket” home, in a pine box, sealed, not suitable for viewing. Well, someone has to be the last.

In high school I used to run track and I did it for the admiration of the fairer sex, as in “He’s on the track team” and “He’s an athlete.” I never finished first and the guys I ran against, in the back of the pack, were just like me, and we always had our own little race within a race. So the next time you see such an event you won’t have to wonder why the finishers who weren‘t last are smiling, even if they didn’t finish first.

There used to be a separation of powers between business and government. Government should not be in the business of business: the business of government should be governing; in our case, overseeing rules and regulations to protect the consumer from greedy monopolies (does Ma Bell ring a bell?), safety issues (tires delaminating) and health concerns (Love Canal), and others. The government is not in the employment business, although you’d never know it by the thousands of the newly hired in government jobs.

The government is purposely destroying the small business entrepreneur so the private sector can no longer compete in the marketplace. Laissez faire works, but it doesn’t work for those who are too lazy to work, or learn, or contribute to the common good. A government employee does not contribute to the wealth of a nation; on the contrary, all government jobs are parasitic and include such necessary responsibilities of guarding and protecting (military), maintaining the transportation system (navigable waterways, roads, airways), and libraries. Those are a few examples of the necessary evils that burden the taxpayer.

But now the taxpayer is being burdened with unnecessary debts from the government’s bailouts, payoffs, and kickbacks (erroneously called “stimulus”) and hiring personnel for meaningless government jobs whose responsibility is not to provide assistance to their employers (taxpayers) but rather to shield and protect the illegal Muslim immigrant in the White House.

It’s gone too far for too long to turn back time and to ignore all of the transgressions that government employees (law enforcement and judges) and elected representatives have committed. It’s now too late for anyone to say they didn’t know about the fake birth certificates, the numerous aliases, addresses, Social Security numbers, and bogus Selective Service application information. In short, we all know, and they all know, that Obama is a two-bit felon and, had the Attorney General Eric Holder had a smattering of honesty, he would have arrested, shackled, and taken Obama to jail, there to await, among other things, a deportation hearing.

So here’s my question: Who will be the last member of Congress to get on board, which Republican candidate will be the last to cry out for justice, which sheriff will be the last to investigate the fraud that masquerades as our president? And where will you be? Will you be the last in your church to see the light, or maybe the last in the hood to figure out that this Obama clown is not only taking you to the cleaners, but all of America? My advice is to get on board now and don’t burden yourself with the regret of being the last.

A Direct Challenge to the U.S. Secret Service

A Direct Challenge to the U.S. Secret Service
When is the U.S. Secret Service going to investigate to find out who made and put the forged long form birth certificate PDF document regarding Barack Obama onto the White House servers on 27 April 2011 instead of investigating SSgt Daryn Moran?

After all, the Secret Service has the experts in their organization for investigation of forged items. They are charged with investigation counterfeiters, are they not? They have the perfect tools and skilled experts to investigate and find out who was the person who made the forged PDF file long form birth certificate and who placed it on the White House servers on 27 April 2011.

When will they do their duty to protect the putative president Obama from document forgers forging his birth certificate? The evidence of forgery in that PDF document long form birth certificate is obvious and can be reviewed here.

The forger needs to be found and prosecuted. The protection of the putative president Obama demands it. The Secret Service cannot permit forgers to fabricate documents about the putative president Obama and put those forged documents onto government owned servers.

So it is time the Secret Service investigated and finds that forger and brings him to justice. Also, when will the Secret Service agents look to their prime directive of their oath of office, to support and defend the U.S. Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic? An inquiring American public wishes to know.

Winston Churchill

"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery."
-Winston Churchill

Due Process With a Bullet

A GI in the hills of France takes aim through a rifle scope at a German soldier. Snow cakes the ground and a few bare trees cling to the ground like bony fingers. At the last moment, the German soldier sees his attacker. “Wait,” he cries out in a passable accent, “Ich bin an American citizen.”
The scenario isn’t a particularly implausible one. Any number of Germans did leave to fight on behalf of their country in the first and second world wars. And there was no question of due process on the battlefield. Members of enemy forces who fought against the United States were killed and any precedent set in that regard was set long ago.

Critics of drone attacks call them “assassinations”, but there is no difference whatsoever between a soldier sighting an enemy officer through a computer monitor or a rifle scope. There is also no legal distinction between firing a bullet or dropping a bomb or launching a missile. The nature of the projectile or delivery mechanism matters in the tactical and strategic sense, it doesn’t matter in any other way. War is war and dead is dead.

If knowing the identity of your target ahead of time is assassination, that is a subjective difference on the battlefield. And Al-Awlaki was not the first enemy officer targeted for death. Excessive nitpckers may raise legal questions about the legality of targeting enemy officers under the rules of war, but anyone who thinks the rules of war apply unilaterally and unequivocally to a terrorist group that does not abide by any rules is a hopeless case anyway.

Anyone who objects to the Al-Awlaki strike on due process grounds should also ask themselves if they would have objected to the strike on Admiral Yamamoto, the man behind Pearl Harbor and the strategic visionary of Japan’s naval war, if Yamamoto had managed to pick up American citizenship while in this country.

Should the United States then have practiced a hands off policy on Yamamoto until the war was won and he could be brought to trial? Had we done that, we might not have won the war at all. And if we try to arrest every enemy fighter on the battlefield who ever lied through his teeth while taking the citizenship oath, we’ll lose this one too.

Until the Warren Court began making up its own Constitution, there was no question about any of these scenarios at all.

An American citizen who defected to join an enemy army, or simply defected or even deserted was denaturalized. Denaturalization stripped him of his status as an American.

Roseanne Barr advocates reeducation camps, beheadings of capitalists in America

The lovely (ugh), annoying, and washed up former actress/comedian Roseanne Barr was a guest on Russia Today where she claimed that capitalists should be sent to reeducation camps and, if that didn’t work, sentenced to beheadings via the guillotine. Apparently she’s a big fan of a Tale of Two Cities and the indiscriminate bloodlust of the French Revolution as calls for a repeat of history on the streets of New York City.

” So you know, Russia Today is ‑‑ it’s Putin’s playground. It is an anti‑West, anti‑American network carried by your cable companies, and let it ‑‑ it just spills into your home. Russia Today is a propaganda machine exactly the same as Al‑Jazeera,” Glenn Beck said.

“Well, they had Roseanne Barr on,” Glenn said. “Don’t dismiss her as being a funny lady here because she’s dead serious.”

Barr said, “It’s part of ‑‑ the part of my platform is that the guilty must be punished and that we can no longer, you know, let our children see their guilty leaders getting away with murder because it teaches children that, you know, they don’t have to have any morals and as long as they have guns and are bullies that they’ll win and I don’t think that’s a good message. I do say that I am for the return of the guillotine and that is for the worst of worst of the guilty.”

“I first would allow the guilty bankers to pay ‑‑ you know, the ability to pay back anything over 100 million personal wealth because I believe that a maximum wage of $100 million and if they are unable to live on that amount, then they should, you know, go to the reeducation camps and if that doesn’t happen, then be beheaded,” she continued.

“I receive e‑mails and messages and letters from all over the world, especially Israel and Turkey and even Iran, everywhere. I see it all, and I just encourage everybody. Get together as fast as you can. Stop all that lefty factioning stuff that leftist men love to do. Women, come together, and it’s ours and we’ll take it and we’ll fix it.”

“They’re dead serious. There are extraordinarily dangerous people within this movement,” Glenn warned.

Russia Today Stokes Revolutionary Fires Across America

Just as its KGB controlled forebears did in the Cold War, Kremlin propaganda channel Russia Today stokes class hatred and revolutionary ferment inside “The main enemy,” the USA.

As Americans continue to lose their jobs and homes to the socialist economic policies coming out of Washington, Russia Today and other pro-communist media outlets will do their best to encourage violence and anarchy on the streets of New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago…….

They want to see an “American Spring” overturn what’s left of American capitalism. The American education system has given the Russians and their American Marxist allies hundreds of thousands of ‘useful idiots’ prepared to tear down their own country.

How is this any different from what Barack Hussein Obama, Michael Moore and scores of other leftist are doing in America?

It Is Liberalism That Has Failed the Blacks

Saturday, October 1, 2011

It Is Liberalism That Has Failed the Blacks
I long for the days when men were men. I long for the days when this nation meant more to people than just a residence, just a job, just a position within their community. I long for a day when the promises of liberty were more than just words on marble monuments.

I don't think I am alone in this, but it vexes me that when I stand I stand largely alone. That when I lay down my life and treasure that only a few are willing to stand next to me and do the same with theirs. I can recount several over the Guardians of Liberty time, but where have they gone, what have they done since I have been surveilled, harassed by the IRS and lost my business? Have they moved the ball? I question not their willingness, nor their devotion to liberty, only their effectiveness. There are those, Kerodin and Pete and if you know those individuals you know that I hold them in great regard, that they are brothers in liberty. I have seen Mike pursue and take Gunwalker, along with the other Mike, to the very brink of catastrophic scandal that the Obama Administration so greatly deserves. I have seen others like Brock continue to beat the drum. There are many in the Second Amendment movement who do as much as they can to raise awareness and demand liberty, RTC (either one), Dudley from Rocky Mountain, Arctic Patriot, Alvie, Green Mountains Homesteading, etc, etc.

Do I have to name them all? We know who the action folks are, but where are the others? For so long we have hammered away at the wall of government, we have paid the dues of those who risk everything for liberty and yet there is little being accomplished. I am no better. After beating the drum with Guardians and the lack of accomplishment that organization produced I burrowed in and worked to make my world safe for my family. I ventured out and was distracted by my own pursuits. I will come back when needed, I tell myself.

I hear of Van Jones raising the stakes. The minorities will rattle the cages this election, which is code for intimidate white voters so Obama can be re-elected. Is this ultimately America? Is fear the true enemy of liberty? Do we sacrifice everything to save our skins, or do we pony up? Do we know what that means? Is it time for the racial minorities to overcome the largely white-dominated culture and if so, is that only possible through threats of violence? Look, if minorities seek to band together to accomplish something politically, what could be more American? But, if the implied threat is to another race, is that somehow noble? Minorities are often trampled in a popular election, that is just how it works, it is not racially motivated, it is a numbers game, it is a motivation game, but like so many Cinco de Mayo parades, it is a "sticking it to the man" mentality that pervades.

Were America the racially antagonistic place some minorities would like to project, there never could have been a President Obama. I like the fact that a black man has been president. I like the fact that as a nation we are capable of choosing our president based on eloquence, even, rather than race, that the Obama Administration has largely been a failure, even to his most ardent supporters tells one more about the man and his ideology than the color of his skin. The fact that he enjoys making his race a bigger factor than it has ever been shows the shallowness of his soul, not the legitimacy of his claim.

We are Americans and part of us are from a different race, that is a fact. But, we are all Americans. We select from Americans to lead us, regardless of race, or of ethnicity. I like Herman Cain, but blacks will call him every name they can to suggest that he is not "right," that somehow his views make him less black. I don't like Herman Cain because he is black, I like him because he is conservative and that most of his views are my views. Liberal blacks hate him because he intimates the unspoken truth that his color has nothing to do with his popularity among whites. It destroys the narrative that they have so carefully nurtured. He is proof that the racial factor is truly no factor in our decisions or our support.

I would like to see every race embrace the values and principles of the Constitution and I think blacks are being poorly served when they are asked to support Democrats on the idea that somehow they will deliver the spoils to them based on race. That is a cynical view of America that only liberals would advance, only those among us who do not see value in all that we have been through as a nation struggling with the evil of slavery over these many decades and now closing in on centuries. We cannot change the past, we can only seek to overcome the mistakes of our forebears and forgive me for believing we have come a long damn way from those policies and practices that ever allowed it. The truth of history is that America never wanted slavery, that is was imposed upon us by the British, who reaped great financial rewards in its employ by shipping and delivering those souls into bondage. I have read enough wills in my time to recognize that most slaves were given freedom. I know that at the time of the Civil War there were more free blacks in the South than in the North. But these are lost facts to those determined to keep the myth of racism alive.

There are racists. I do not mean to imply that there are not, but the ratio is minuscule. Obama is proof that we have put that issue aside and were he conservative, his policies would have worked and he would have already been hailed as one of our greatest presidents, not the successor to the Carter legacy. It is liberalism that has failed the blacks, not America.

Were this not true liberty would be on the minds of all races. Were this not true we would be brothers in arms to demand our rights and to stand aside one another as brothers against tyranny and oppression. The spoils of a great nation cannot be delivered unto one race or another, it must be earned by diligence in the pursuit of happiness, i.e. liberty. The label of racism is granted to anyone struggling against the power of the federal government as a reflex. But, even to proffer that insinuation is to admit that minorities are dependent upon the government and unable to stand apart from it, a racist declaration if ever I heard one.

Let not Van Jones be right, let us all seek liberty and aid those who are engaged in the fight this very day. Together we can reap the rewards of ambition, divided we are but a weak and unworthy people.
