The reality is the ruling elite fear the citizenry still and because the citizenry is armed, they cannot just massacre ideological dissidents at will. Instead, they have to get crafty and do it through things like an experimental vaccine and call it something scary like COVID. Those with real power and in the national government do not represent us. They hate us and seek to return humanity to serfdom under their rule and undo centuries of progress made by the average citizen to have a better life. This is all by design, it is not an accident.

Keep your powder dry, because it is the only thing that keeps them partially in check.

God bless you and God bless Dixie.

The Minuteman’s Guide to Thermal Camouflage

Von Steuben Training & Consulting

Warfare, be it foreign or domestic, is changing. The modern battlefield is saturated with sensors of all types from drones to night vision to electronic warfare. As this technology becomes more and more available/affordable to civilians, even irregular warfare is evolving. In order to survive the ever-changing nature of war, we must adapt along with it.

Particularly impactful is the common availability of thermal optics. Thermal optics, which read heat signatures, are incredibly potent tools. Although somewhat cost-prohibitive, they are no longer as unobtainable as they once were and can be had for under $2000 in some cases. It is safe to assume that any large-scale civil conflict will see at least some use of thermal optics on both sides, so we must be prepared for this reality.

In order to learn how to deal with a thermal-equipped enemy, we must first understand the technology we are dealing with.

Mitchell WerBell

Know Your History.

Scattered Shots

By Kurt Allemeier

A veteran of the Office of Strategic Services, master of marketing, soldier of fortune, Mitchell WerBell was subterfuge and conspiracy personified. He is also the designer of the modern silencer with an early company called Sionics.

Mitchell WerBell was a “wheeler dealer” according to some government documents. He was a mercenary at one time and also ran a counter-terrorism training center, giving the world the Cobray.

WerBell served with the Office of Strategic Services in the China-Burma theatre in World War II before becoming an advertising executive. He decided to become a mercenary of another kind in the 1960s, designing silencers and working to topple foreign governments with involvement across the Caribbean, Southeast Asia, and Central America. Documents allege WerBell to have been in Dealey Plaza when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated and supposedly supplied silencers used by the gunmen in Dallas. That information didn’t come…

Attack on Poland – German and Soviet Rearmament

Know Your History.

History and War

Introduction

Throughout history, Poland shared the fate of many Central European nations in being a playground of various great powers. While Poland had, through Middle Ages and especially in 16th to 18th centuries, achieved status of a great or at least regional power, it always had to fight to preserve its independence. Poland eventually disappeared from the map after being divided between Prussia, Austria and Russia in divisions of 1772., 1793. and 1795. Poland would – with the exception of short-lived Grand Duchy of Warshaw – only regain independence after the three empires collapsed following the First World War.

As Russia collapsed in the 1917. revolution, the new Provisional Government in Petrograd issued a proclamation of Polish independence on 31st March 1917. But Germans had occupied Poland in its entirety, and so independence had to wait. Only in Autumn of 1918., with defeat of Germany close at…

What is Military History

The popular (mis)conception of the military history is that it is all about armies, battles and generals. But while these are undoubtably a significant part of military history, battles are only a fraction of what military history is about. Psychology, administration, logistics, biology, environment, climate… all these areas, and more, are crucial for understanding and studying military history. In fact, military historians talk more about food than anybody other than dedicated food historians, simply because without logistics, you cannot have an army.

Three major areas of study of military history are technological, social and organizational. This of course does not mean that the traditional campaign history (“drums and trumpets” history) has been or should be abandoned; it has however been mostly left to amateur historians. Technological approach sees the changing technology – be it military or civilian technology – as the main motivator of military change…
