Pay particular attention to the Government/Crime Nexus mentioned.
“Crime becomes a tool of political power rather than a question of morality.”
Our nation is at an impasse- a question of direction, going far beyond singular issues such as firearms ownership, personal privacy or economics- but one that encompasses those who see America as a thing to be preserved and another who see it as a thing needing to be destroyed. It was said by a number…
Civil War 2 appears to be the new buzzword among both sides of the brewing conflict in the US, no longer considered some fringe notion. The Right and the Left find themselves at an impasse, and its rapidly becoming apparent that one side is not only readily engaged in the early fighting but is actively…
A Good, practical read in a day and age when more bad guys are likely to be armored up.
I look at it like this: If Center of Mass is not working, try something else.
A head shot in the real world under stress is a low percentage shot from any distance so I would lean toward pelvis.
Point being, keep putting rounds into him/her until they are not a threat.
Stay Alert, Armed and Dangerous
The recent mass killer in Dayton was wearing a bullet resistant vest. While he was quickly neutralized by the police (disappointingly, there appears to have been no armed citizens nearby) this raises the question of how an armed citizen (or an on- or off-duty officer) can best deal with this situation. The issue is that if their rounds are stopped by the BG’s armor then he can continue to kill until 1) the good guy figures this out and 2) goes to plan B. So we have two issues.
How do we figure out that the BG is wearing armor? I’ve harped a lot in these pages about the fact that we shouldn’t shoot any faster than we can assess what’s going on in front of our muzzle. (This tactic has been picked up and come to be called “not out-running your headlights” lately in the shooting community.) If…

(By The Tactical Hermit)
Since Donald Trump was elected President in 2016 and the left-tards started throwing public temper tantrums akin to five year-old’s who do not get their way. The general consensus in the Conservative Patriot Community was “What do we really have to fear from a group of people with purple hair who don’t even know which bathroom to use?” But recent tragic events at the ICE Detention Center in Washington State requires all of us to prudently re-evaluate the REALISTIC THREAT LEVEL these people and their organizations really pose.
Sun Tzu tells us in The Art of War that in order to be victorious against an enemy, we must “Know the enemy as we know ourselves.” So in keeping with that wisdom, let us briefly outline the birth of radical left-wing militancy in the United States.
In the book Days of Rage: America’s Radical Underground, The FBI and the Forgotten Age of Revolutionary Violence, by Bryan Burrough, several militant left-wing so-called “revolutionary” or urban-guerilla groups were discussed including: The Weather Underground, The Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA) (Who kidnapped heriess Patty Hearst) Fuerzas Armadas de Liberación Nacional or Armed Forces of National Liberation (FALN), The United Freedom Front, The Black Liberation Army (BLA) and The Mutulu Shakur Group or “The Family.”
Although it is beyond the scope of this article to go into any real analytical depth on any one particular group regarding their history, tactics and strategies, I do want to briefly discuss The Weather Underground. Simply because they share many characteristics with ANTIFA and their affiliates. The most obvious being their willingness to attack U.S. Government installations. But the most notable is the name of the group ICE Detention Center terrorist and really bad songwriter, Willem Van Spronsen (pictured above) was a member: The Puget Sound John Brown Gun Club. A name influenced from the latter history of The Weather Underground.
When the Weather Underground split up in 1976, several members (including Barrack Hussein Obama mentor Bill Ayers) decided to start a “publishing arm” called the Prairie Fire Organizing Committee, also called “The John Brown Book Club” by core members. It is no coincidence then that the Puget Sound John Brown Gun Club shares the same name as this notorious organization of domestic terrorist and criminals. The difference being the word “Book” has been replaced with “Gun.” Read into that what you will dear readers.
In the following three paragraphs I have listed three common-core traits that all of these groups share so we can better understand their motivations and beliefs and how those influenced modern day groups like The John Brown Gun Club, ANTIFA, Black Lives Matter (BLM) and the Democratic Socialist of America.
Social Justice Warriors
We have all heard this term time and time again in the main stream media, but the real genesis of the word comes from counter-culture peaceful protest groups that began in the 1960’s and who eventually morphed into the urban-guerilla/domestic terrorist groups of the 1970’s. These groups are characterized mainly by marxist/socialist utopian fantasies rooted in anti-capitalist/anti-imperialist sentiment. Currently third and fourth wave feminist organizations like One Billion Rising and Reclaim the Night along with movements such as #METOO have joined in with the SJW movement and phrases such as “Toxic Masculinity”, “Evils of a Patriarchal System” and “Misogynistic Mentality”are now common place in their rhetoric.
Revolutionary Violence Justified
To see the origins of left-wing violence in America one has to go further back to the 1920’s and 30’s when the Communist Party was beginning to gain traction in America via the Labor movement. Violence and subversion were seen as necessary evils to advance the cause of communism, with the Russian Revolution of 1917 as a shining example of what could be accomplished when comrades banded together for a common goal. During the Depression era we saw humanity at it’s most vulnerable and weakest. It was at this time that the Communist Party bolstered it’s membership ranks into the tens of thousands by exploiting peoples hardships by blaming all of society’s ills on the “Capitalist” Industrialist system. Sound familiar? Fast forward to the 1970’s where groups like The Weather Underground, the FALN and the BLA claimed responsibility for over 2,500 bombings in an eighteen month period between 1971 and 1972. These bombings (in which less than 1% accounted for any fatalities) were always followed by some type of public statement that denounced the “evils of the capitalist system” of Democratic government. Again, sound familiar? Yes, nothing really ever changes with these folks.
Use of Propaganda via Main Stream Media (MSM)
These groups were very adept at using various forms of propaganda to further their cause. In the 1960’s, with the advent of television news at it’s zenith, public protest became a very popular way for these groups to get publicity and notoriety. In the 1970’s it was standard operating procedure for groups like The Weather Underground and the FALN to issue “communiques” after their bombings which more often than not acted as “exploding press releases.” These messages always denouncing some form of the “American capitalist condition.” Fast forward to today with the heavily biased leftist media enclaves like CNN and MSNBC giving these groups validity and publicity with biased anchors supporting their violent actions. While at the same time social media giants like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are obvious allies bolstering the leftist ranks. It can be said without exaggeration then that the left has the upper hand when it comes to “controlling the narrative” with their propaganda. While at the same time silencing the opposition’s viewpoint via censorship and false labels like “hate speech” and “racist.”
So after seeing the common traits these organizations have always had regardless of the time period in which they operate, what is the bottom line as far as violence goes with today’s left-wing groups? It can be said with some certainty after perusing the websites of some of the leftist groups in operation today, that VIOLENCE is certainly on the menu and is being prepared for with VIGOR.
For the DIY type of 21st century leftist revolutionary, there is the aptly named “Warrior Up” website which by it’s own description has “Techniques for sabotaging capitalist infrastructure and extractive industries.” For those of us old enough to remember when you could buy a copy of the Poor Man’s James Bond via mail order for $5.00, in comparison, websites like these are pitiful substitutes to be honest.
To get a sense of where the average leftist is at regarding violence, there is this overly biased article from the Guardian. In which members of the the Puget Sound John Brown Gun Club stated that they were willing to be armed and get violent if need be to “Provide Security and Protect themselves from Right Wing Aggression.” This is classic deflection (blame) rhetoric. Since in most every video I can find of ANTIFA, it is THESE morons that start the fights, not the Trump Supporters or “Right Wing” groups.
The PSJBGC go on to clearly state on their website that they believe in “ACTIVE RESISTANCE” and that they train in Defense which includes the right to own, carry, and train with tactically useful rifles, pistols, and body armor. Not sure what “tactically useful” means here, but it is clear, at least to me, that they are trying to be better organized and sound more martially active or “warlike” if you will than other groups you typically find in this ilk which look and sound downright effeminate and weak.
In closing, it would behoove all of us in the Conservative and Patriot communities to keep an eye on these folks. While most of the rhetoric I found was mostly defensive in nature, there is no doubt these groups are attempting to take a harder edge, get better organized and talk and train more like their Conservative enemies. There is no doubt, at least in my mind, there will be more attacks like the one on the ICE Detention Center and as the 2020 Presidential debates and election approaches, more attacks on Conservatives and Trump supporters as well.

“Diversity Visa Lottery” is One of those Orwellian New Speak Words which really mean “One way Ticket for Terrorist”. Be sure and mark that one down.
A man charged with joining the Islamic State (ISIS) as a sniper and firearms instructor originally came to the United States through the “Diversity Visa Lottery,” a program responsible for bringing more than half a million randomly chosen foreign nationals to the country in a single decade.
Ruslan Maratovich Asainov, 42-years-old, was charged last week in a Brooklyn, New York, federal court for aiding ISIS in 2013 when he allegedly traveled to Turkey and Syria to fight for the terrorist group.
Asainov, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agency has confirmed, first arrived in the U.S. through the Diversity Visa Lottery in February 1999.
The Visa Lottery randomly gives out about 55,000 visas every year to foreign nationals from a multitude of countries, including those with known terrorist problems — such as Afghanistan, Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, and…
