Great Read and Advice.
Stay Alert, Armed and Dangerous!
“The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”
― Art of the Rifle
“To conquer a nation, first disarm its citizens.”
As a weapons owner in America you are a negro living in the Democrat-dominated south at the turn of the twentieth century and that is quickly metastasizing into a variant of the Jew [Slav, homosexual, gypsy, on and on] in National Socialist Germany or aUkrainian farmerin the 1930s USSR.
The red flag laws are now allowing the badged Orcs to seize your weapons before you have committed a crime. Miss McConnell is…

Won’t here this on any of the Fake News Cartel stations…why?
Besides SOF training drills, they are also sharpening up for a critical domestic incident such as mass civil unrest, rioting and looting.
Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
Stay Alert, Armed and Dangerous!
I have always said when the metal meets the meat regarding enforcing unconstitutional gun laws and “gun confiscations” it will all boil down to your local County Sheriff, so elect wisely and form relationships now, it WILL matter in the upcoming storm.
Washington state recently introduced bills for some of the strictest gun laws in the country but they have some very important opponents: the sheriffs.
Long thought to be the last line of defense between authoritarianism and freedom, sheriffs are in a unique position. As elected officials, basically nobody has authority over them – not the judges, not the Feds – no one except the people who may or may not choose to re-elect them.
What are those new gun laws in Washington?
In November, Washington voters passed a ballot initiative, I-1639. To purchase a semi-automatic rifle, buyers must be over 21, undergo an enhanced background check, must have completed a safety course, and need to wait 9 days to take possession of their weapon. And that’s not all. A gun owner who doesn’t store his or her weapon “properly” can be prosecuted.
And that was just the beginning of the unconstitutional momentum.

Not a bad primer to help get your mind in the right direction when it comes to preparing for when the Hammer drops. Remember, in Prepping, just like in Firearms and Combat Training, it is Software before Hardware. The Mind is the Ultimate Weapon, all else is Supplemental. -SF
I have been reading the excellent book, Logavina Street: Life and Death in a Sarajevo Neighborhood, by Barbara Demick, and thinking about other places like Ukraine, Egypt, Venezuela, Syria, Argentina, Turkey, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Japan, Chile, Haiti, France, Zimbabwe, Iraq, Russia, Libya, Israel, Liberia, Yemen, Mexico, and my home state of Texas. This has caused the paranoid part of me, a part that is apparently immune to normalcy bias, to consider how one might spend some spare money and time, apart from buying sovereign bonds and attending DSK’s quarterly sex parties, to prepare for TEOTWAWKI as experienced by the people in the aforementioned nations. What follows is not a shopping list, but rather a list of questions to assist in creating a working inventory of mind, body, and equipment for living in dangerous or uncertain times. These are mostly things one would want to get squared away while one has time for consideration, before one’s life, or another’s life, depends on it.

Good News America…One of the Most Elite Branches of the Armed Services responsible for your National Defense and Security is being slowly DESTROYED from the Inside by Politically Correct numb-nuts in Washington D.C.
Now, not only can transgender and “Non-Binary” people join the ranks, but also fat women. That’s right, in the new “progressive obama military”, physical fitness standards are a thing of the past; Forget about being in “War Fighting” shape, in this new PC “Everybody is OK” universe, you can actually be a jelly doughnut eating sack of goo and still be considered a Marine!
I think Gunnery Sergeant Hartman would have something to say about this load of crap!
Disgusting Fatbodies…Thousands of them. That is what the Ranks of the USMC will soon be FILLED WITH.
Now don’t you FEEL BETTER About this Nation’s National Security?
I Know I don’t.

Last summer the state of Texas was ablaze over concerns surrounding the Jade Helm military drills held across the state prompted some to speculate that the Federal government was preparing for either a local insurrection, secession planning contencies for the Lone Star state or even a “Texas takeover.”
Similar confusion returned earlier this week when dozens of McLennan Community College students posed as unruly protesters as part of a Federal Emergency Management Agency training program. This“first of its kind” three day exercise in Waco, Texas was overseen by the Department of Homeland Security, during which police officers from fifteen different departments took part in drills on how to deal with riots and conduct mass arrests.”
Officers from the Waco Police Department, McLennan County Sheriff’s Office, Killeen Police Department, Lorena Police Department, DeSoto Police Department and troopers with the Texas Department of Public Safety, among others, participated in the three-day training program.
As Waco Tribune reports, citing training coordinator Jay Fonville, “this type of training has never been in Texas before.”
