A “perfect storm” is on the horizon. Part 1 of a series.

This series of posts will address the conditions that have, will and are occurring in America, they are in no particular order, all are important. Some will be based on fact. Some will be based on possibilities. Some will be based on opinion. Some will be based on my life experiences. Some will be based on my interpretations of events. Some will be based on a combination of all. If you are reading this post, you will have to decide which is which and you must arrive at your own conclusions. Some of this post and subsequent posts in this series will cause you to do some research on your own.

We begin with the continued erosion of and constant attacks on the Bill of Rights. The Fourth Amendment concerning search and seizure, the requirements and limitations.
The recent ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court upholding traffic stops by Law Enforcement based on anonymous tips about reckless or drunk driving. Allowing and then upholding this practice removes the long-established practice of the accused not having to prove his innocence, but the state having to prove the guilt of the accused “beyond a reasonable doubt”, now the accused will be forced to prove his innocence. This practice is being touted as a useful tool in the arsenal to protect the public, but it has a “dark and sinister side”, when does promoting public safety turn to endangering the public. As to the matter of an anonymous tip about an alleged reckless driver, it could be true but it could be also “someone with an axe” to grind, possibly as simple as a bumper sticker that they disagree with or take offense to. This was obviously a “politically motivated” ruling as there are lingering and still unanswered questions. How much of the available resources will be used to investigate the tip? How many will show up? What could possibly go wrong? Let’s just suppose that a gun hating environmental loving liberal is driving down the road in their hybrid car behind a big gas guzzling truck with a big NRA sticker in the rear window. The liberal has just encountered in one place at one time everything they hate, a person that is pro-gun, obviously hates the environment as demonstrated by what is being driven and most likely a conservative. The liberal does the right thing, at least in the mind of a liberal, they call in an anonymous tip just to teach the pro-gun environment hating conservative a lesson. What they report is a reckless driver, give the tag number, and just for good measure to insure a response from law enforcement they also report that the driver was brandishing a firearm, but will say “gun”, and just for added insurance of a response they will say they heard the driver shouting slurs and threats out of the window. You can rest assured that the response from law enforcement will be a large effort after all the public must be protected areas will be locked down the time of day and the area will determine that and how many could be effected. If the DMV search of the tag number reveals a local address law enforcement may just go there and wait for the driver to show up at his address. If the DMV search shows a distant address in the same state more resources will be needed, some to look for the vehicle and some to wait for his arrival at home. If the tag is out-of-state the matter becomes more complicated. Now throw in a political rally or that a national politician is in the area. For arguments sake, I will say that a police helicopter spots the suspect truck on the highway, and radios the information to the patrol units looking for the truck. The driver of the truck sees all the flashing lights coming from all directions, glances down at his speedometer, not speeding, and quietly says “they are not coming for me, I wonder what is going on.” But he doesn’t know about the angry liberal and the anonymous tip. They are coming for him. The vehicle stops, law enforcement is everywhere with weapons drawn and trained on him, rifles, handguns and shotguns he is confused, he has done nothing wrong. Traffic is stopped in all directions. Helicopters are circling above. Noise and confusion. The driver is ordered to exit the vehicle, he does, he has always been a law-abiding citizen. The law enforcement officers begin shouting orders at him, he is trying to obey the orders, but there are too many and too fast further confusing him. The confusion overwhelms him and he stops complying. You know what happens next. The fact that he had broken no laws has little meaning. Another bit of America is extinguished.

As to the matter of the alleged drunk driver it could be true or not. A neighborhood “do-gooder” sees a car leaving a bar full of obviously drunk and rowdy people and calls in an anonymous tip. The tipster doesn’t know that the vehicle is being driven by a designated driver who had not been partaking of the adult beverages, or that one of the revelers may have called a friend to come pick them up and take them home. Going down the road the “revelers” soon start falling asleep, the driver quietly says “quiet at last” and continues on his journey feeling good that he had a part in preventing his friends from getting into trouble, doing jail time, not to mention the embarrassment and expense of getting a DUI. The driver sees the flashing lights approaching and glances down at his speedometer, not speeding, and quietly says “they are not coming for me, I wonder what is going on.” He doesn’t know about the tip from the “do-gooder”. They are coming for him. The vehicle stops, the officers approach, there is the strong odor of alcoholic beverages. The driver is ordered from the vehicle, he complies, the “passed-out revelers” begin waking. You know what happens next. The fact that the driver had broken no laws has little meaning. Another bit of America is extinguished.

The ruling by the Supreme Court will have far-reaching and dire consequences for America. Will we as Americans be forced to spend the remaining days of our lives proving our innocence? How can a person even accomplish proving their innocence every day and from every accusation? Like so many ideas, proposals and practices introduced for public safety they all began with good intentions, but as we all know the road to Hell is paved with good intentions. This is only the beginning of the things to come. If you are still with me, you may be wondering what the hell all of this has to do with the Fourth Amendment. If you have not read the complete ruling I encourage you to do so, then consider the following, mere suspicion and probable cause.

The ruling will have no effect on the Justices. No one will call in an anonymous tip on their car and their behavior, they will never see the flashing lights approaching glance down at the speedometer, not speeding, and never have to quietly say “they are not coming for me, I wonder what is going on.” They have a “special” tag and even if someone had the nerve to call on them, the tag makes them immune. Another fine example of the “Privileged Few” never having to live under what they say is okay for the little people. Good job on this one what will you force on us next, can’t wait for you to rule on the rest.

DHS and the “See something Say something” campaign may be greatly effected by the “anonymous tip” ruling. Look around the surrounding area, you may find yours like mine. Homes going up for sale for many reasons mainly the piss-poor economy or people reaching the age where they are just ready to move to a retirement community. The people who are buying the homes and moving into my area are seeking an escape from the city life and all of its problems, even if it is only a week-end home. They are more than welcome, but they sure do stand-out, given time they may even fit-in, some of the things they do I find odd to say the least. We call them “come lately’s” I was even one once. But I am also sure they think the same of me. My getting up early during hunting season, wearing camouflage and loading guns into my truck is NOT unusual behavior. Coming home late in the evening, wearing dirty camouflage, unloading guns from my truck and “cussing” is NOT unusual either, some times I come home empty-handed. When I do good you are invited to supper. I truly hope that going to my favorite hunting spot I never see flashing lights approaching, because I won’t be speeding and they can’t be coming for me.

Think for yourself.

Every time the results of an “opinion poll” are released I “bust a gut” laughing. Every news outlet and newspaper have “polls” on every subject imaginable. The results are based on a “sampling” of voters, likely voters and man on the street and the questions always have a “margin of error” disclaimer. The one thing they never reveal is the format of the question asked, some formats do not leave any choice and some do. If you ask the question in the format of do you like, there is only a yes or no response. If you ask the question of how much do you like, the answers would be of great variance unless you limit the responses to none, some and much. If you limit the responses you manipulate the poll and the data. Limiting your choice of response only serves to “steer” opinion to the results that were intended. Still I do not understand how a “sampling” of a few Americans represents the rest of American opinion. I find it truly amazing that people earn a living at being a “pollster”, well maybe not a lot of people earn a living deceiving America, “politicians and pollsters”. Lies on top of liars on top of lies. I wonder who works for who? The truly sickening thing is that the politicians base what they do based on polling data, they will even state that the majority of Americans want this, that or the other based on polls, or if the polls are in disagreement with their actions they will simply state that America jus does not understand. One more thing about these “polls” no one has ever asked my opinion and that is probably just as well, my response would most likely be unprintable. I have some tips for the pollsters, (1)I am an American (2)I have an opinion (3)I matter and I vote (4)But all of this does not matter to you and your numbers because I choose to live in as they say the “sticks”, not the large cities (5)I am perfectly capable of arriving a my own conclusion after gathering the facts (6)I do not need you to attempt to change my mind with your numbers (7)your numbers are meaningless (8)I am not a part of any herd and do not find myself following the so-called popular opinion, if there is such a thing. No one thinks for me.

When ever the government releases numbers it leaves me scratching my head. The unemployment numbers always have “seasonally adjusted” attached to it no matter what season it is. What the hell is seasonally adjusted? I work year-round not just one season or another. Another thing why is it always a rounded number such as 171000 new jobless claims or 171000 new jobs added, is there no way it could have been 1710001 or any other number but a rounded number. Recently BHO gave his victory speech regarding the Obamacare numbers, then it was 7.1 million, but was it and who knows what it is now. The numbers for Medicaid, Medicare and who has actually paid the premiums were not released. It seems that they only know how many signed up not what they signed up for or if they paid. The government also knows how many illegal aliens are in America, again a rounded number, yet are wanting them to come out of the shadows. If you know how many there are, they can’t be hiding in the shadows. The numbers on housing starts are released but no foreclosure numbers. Have the foreclosures stopped? New car sales are released but not repossession numbers. Have they stopped also? If the economy is doing so well why are the numbers on food stamps and other forms of assistance increasing instead of declining? It is all deceptions and lies. Getting a true number out of the government and this administration would probably be as hard as pulling hens teeth. With the exception of how many people were shot or knifed in the latest attack in a gun-free zone. They always release those numbers.

With the advent of cable and satellite we have been blessed or cursed with 24 hour news channels. The problem is that news is not happening 24 hours a day, they are forced to try to make news out of non-news events, like reporting on “polls”. What I find disingenuous is the fact that they fell the necessity of bringing in an expert to repeat or clarify what some politician or public figure just finished talking about. I either just heard what was said and understood it without the experts repeating or clarifying what was said or I chose not to listen and would read it later on my own, most often the latter. There are even times when a news event is occurring and there is a lull so they resort to speculating as to what has possibly occurred, especially during the lost airliner and more recently the tragedy of the ferry in South Korea. They even bring in so-called experts to assist in the speculation in an attempt to give speculation some glimmer of validity. You know it is especially bad when the news networks re-run programs, but will interrupt for some breaking news or non-news event. Rumors, speculation and gossip are not news, but when presented on a news program people will believe it, after all it was on the news. There are also more opinion programs than there are news segments, even the news segments inject opinion, and they all “tout” their ratings and how long they have been on top. These channels, all of them need to re-designate themselves as opinion channels, interrupted by news as it occurs and stop reporting without all the facts or just report the news with the facts they have, or would that have an effect on your ratings.

The so-called experts never get one thing right, the results are always worse than or better than the experts predictions. The ironic thing is that they never publish or state what their expectations are, they simply wait until the results are in to make their expectations known. The weather people are better at guessing weather that changes constantly than the experts are at guessing the economy which most times is flat. Then the stock markets react to the experts statements. This is just another way to deceive America and manipulate the market.

Here is one “poll” that could be used as it is factual. The poll could ask the question do you have your own “rectal orifice” natural or surgically created? Everyone would answer “Yes” as there was only a yes or no response allowed by the poll. The government could report factual numbers for once. The report could read the number of “rectal orifices” equals the number of people in America. The news organizations could report with “breaking news” the latest poll numbers are at 100% with no margin of error every citizen of the nation has a “rectal orifice”. The expert expectations would at last be correct by reporting that as expected every citizen has a “rectal orifice”.

The thing about “rectal orifices”,is everyone has one and they all stink, some just smell worse than others. My Opinion on this, in case anyone should ask, is that the “liberal rectal orifices”, those on the left and right, smell the worst. This is because of and is demonstrated by them seeming to have only one opinion making the “combined and collective” odor akin to an open air waste water treatment site.

Amen, General

Freedom and Liberty could be a flourishing crop, but instead you planted the seeds of a Democracy, you reap what you sow.

What you should have been spreading and supporting was the establishment of Constitutional Republics, but no you had to spread and support Democracy. The United States began as a Constitutional Republic, meaning that the founding documents were drafted and approved before the people were elected to fill the Constitutional Offices. The words Democracy and Democrat are not mentioned once in the constitution or any of the other founding documents. As a matter of fact the U.S. Constitution even goes so far as to guarantee each state a Republican form of government. The Pledge of Allegiance even refers to America as a Republic. The word Republican used here does not in any shape, manner or fashion mean the Republican Party, it simply means a Republic and that manner of government. The word Democrat used here does not in any manner, shape or fashion mean the Democratic Party, it simply means a Democracy and that manner of government. The Founding Fathers went to great lengths in speech and writing to avoid the establishment of America as a Democracy or anything even close in resemblance. They distrusted a Democracy and any one that was labeled a Democrat even less than they trusted a full-time standing Army. Calling someone a Democrat was akin to the usage of a “racial slur”, and as they used to say “them was fighting words”. Why does the Constitution only authorize and allow an army to be funded for two years at a time, yet has no time limit on a Navy to be funded? Simple, No trust of a full-time standing army and the Navy can be sent away. That mistrust lies with Great Britain(England), the King and the British Army and rightly so.

The idea and ideals of a Constitutional Republic is that is a Government of, by and for the People. The Founding Fathers recognized that there would even be a time when the unlawful(meaning those that would not obey the laws of God and nature)would be of great number in the Republic that would only obey the Law of Man and will only do that as long as they want. Congress was given the authority to write laws for the good of society, not the President, not the Courts and not the various Agencies of the Federal Government. The President and the various Agencies have in a role in the faithful execution of the Law. The Courts only have a role in the interpretation of the Constitutionality of the Law. Nowhere in the Constitution is the President or any Agency authorized to arbitrarily change or enforce one or any part of a Law, only the “faithful execution of” the entire Law. If arbitrary change, selected enforcement, or imposition of the will of the President or the Courts were to be the case what would have been the purpose of the Revolutionary War? What the U.S. Constitution does do is state in plain language the “duties and responsibilities” of the three branches of government and the powers allowed. The Constitution makes very few things a criminal act, it was intended to be that way. Laws in this Republic were not written to make acts or things legal, they were written to make acts or things illegal. The more laws there are the less Freedom and Liberty there is for the people to enjoy equally.

The idea and ideals of a Democracy is that is a Government of, by and for the Majority. The Founding Fathers never intended any form of government that was “Dictated” by the Majority, as it did not and would not represent the idea and ideals of a Constitutional Republic. In a Democracy laws are written that reflect what the majority believes should be lawful or unlawful. Freedom and Liberty are not equal, the majority enjoys the most of both, as a matter of fact nothing is equal in a Democracy nor can it be. If there is a Majority then there must be a Minority. The usage of the words Majority and Minority here in no shape, manner or fashion has any thing to do with race. This again is used for the manner of government. This is illustrated by the fact that the Constitution is drafted after elections in newly established Democracies, whoever wins gets the honor and privilege of writing the Constitution. Oh, they have a draft of a proposed Constitution before the election, but the “finished product” is “massaged” by the new president or prime minister or both and the parliament and then passed. Will they write it in their best interest or that of the people? That answer is provided by all the “Democracies” around the world. Those that call themselves a Democratic Republic are the biggest joke on the world. They are a government of the majority of the people, meaning the majority is represented first, then the people if at all. They will have a Dictator or a President that receives 100% of the vote, or a rigged election designed to fool the world into believing that they really are a Democracy, and they actually are, the majority rules even if it is only one person.

The time where America degenerated from a Constitutional Republic into a Democracy started immediately following the death of the last of the Founding Fathers and was completed with the ratification of the 17th amendment to the Constitution. The 17th amendment cleared the last obstacle in the path to Democracy, the Majority was now in control of the greatest nation on earth. Now the President represents the political party and its agenda nominating political party members of his party or the like-minded of the other political party to cabinet level positions and nominating Justices and Judges that represent and reflect the parties views, not the country. The Senate is now free to represent the political party and not the State, and uses this power at every opportunity. All three branches of the federal government are politicians and represent the majority, if the majority is the majority that they want to support. Most of them remain as “remnants” of the last majority, waiting for the time when they will once again represent the majority not the People. America only exists to this day due to the fact that it began as a Constitutional Republic with limits on government powers, but the majority is now and has been chipping away at the very foundation of this nation.

When the “monster” that you have attempted to build around the world acts or starts to act as it is intended to be, a Democracy, the rule of or the vote of the majority the America government gets upset. When the Crimea held a referendum ballot to remain with The Ukraine or rejoin Mother Russia, the American government objected, even calling it illegal and unconstitutional. When The Crimea voted to rejoin Mother Russia, the world screamed in objection. Russia had a ceremony and welcomed The Crimea back into the fold. The Crimea acted in a totally Democratic fashion and yet the world screamed. The Majority spoke at the ballot box and the wish of the majority in a Democracy got their way. Now the violence is once again raging in The Ukraine, the world is once again screaming. The Ukraine may even erupt in a “civil war” because of Democracy not in spite of it. If that happens the world and the media will call it a “civil war” but it is only “Democracy” in action. The Ukraine may even attempt to put a ballot referendum in place whether to remain a Democracy or rejoin “Mother Russia”. The world will surely scream if the Majority vote to rejoin Mother Russia, but once again it will be Democracy in action. The world will object claiming it to be unlawful and unconstitutional. Russia will once again have a ceremony welcoming a lost “child” home. The Ukraine may even find itself divided and once again it will be because of Democracy not in spite of it. It will only get worse in Europe and around the world. The “Democracies” that have been set up or established in Europe and around the world will continue acting like a Democracy, (majority rule) and the people(in the minority) will reach a point where they want and demand to be heard. The world will have little choice in the matters and affairs of the Democracies around the world, as it should be, each country should be free to choose its own path. Russia is winning this confrontation with the world, and is rebuilding itself to what it considered its greatest times this time it is not with violence and oppression, but is using a tool we gave them, Democracy, the will of the Majority inflicted on all. All of the former states of the former U.S.S.R. may well voluntarily rejoin with Mother Russia in a purely Democratic form, a vote where the Majority gets its way. Maybe it should be called “Mob Rule”.

When FDR famously said that America would be the “Arsenal of Democracy” a more fitting and a better definition of America’s role would have been if he had instead said, that America would be the “Arsenal of Freedom and Liberty”. Maybe if America would have spread or attempted to spread Freedom and Liberty the world would be a much better place for the People and not the Majority.

To the Republic for which it stands.

To the Republic for which it stands.

A Donkey mated with an Elephant the result was America got screwed

The true culprits in this mad experiment are the liberal position of “evolution” and “mad radical scientists”. The government laboratories were the site of this project. The donor subjects were gathered, the scientists harvested the needed materials from the “donors”. The mad radical scientists knew that the new “creature” would be not only ungainly even possibly unable to move or care for its own self, it would also be easily recognized. Deception would be needed at this juncture. The further aid of science was needed because the new “creature” must look exactly like an elephant. The science of DNA came into play. The “mad scientists” arrived at the conclusion that they would also need other “donors” to complete the task. The other “donor” subjects were gathered they were a chameleon, an ant and a termite. The needed materials were harvested from these “donors”.

The chameleon was chosen because if its ability to change to fit the surroundings. The new “creature” must be able to change quickly to fit the surroundings or opinions of others nearby. A true liberal position of being all things to all people.

The ant was chosen because they are industrious. The new “creature” must at all times appear to be busy working for America and the American citizens interests.

The termite was chosen simply because of its ability to eat and destroy.

All the harvested materials were then mixed together in a petri dish then injected back into the donor elephant. This could not be a “test tube operation”, that would reveal that science had created the “creature” and it was not a product of evolution. Live birth was needed, giving the illusion that an elephant had given birth to an elephant not a “creature”. No liberals called for the abortion of this creature and it was protected. The Creature was born and it sure looked like an elephant.

Time passed and the “creature” grew up to become a politician. It gave its self a name, it became a “compassionate conservative”. The outward appearance of an elephant, the inner workings of a donkey, the ability to change appearance like the chameleon, the busyness of an ant and the destructiveness of a termite.

The liberals chose the path of science to create the compassionate conservative, evolution takes too long. No known attempts have been made to mate an elephant with a donkey, probably would not survive any way. But if any attempts are made leave the termite out of the mix, our country has suffered enough destruction.

Anyway happy Tax day, mailed the crooks another “pound of flesh”.

She saw the offspring, and they are hideous.

She saw the offspring, and they are hideous.

It matters, it all matters

The U.S. government is out of control and is now testing the resolve of the nation. Recently we saw the BLM thugs backdown from a rancher holding his ground and a group of brave patriots by his side. BHO never addressed the standoff or do anything to lessen the tensions, but he did find time to give one of his speeches to a group of voters at an event hosted by Al the race baiting, alleged Reverend, in New York. Seems to me that BHO will only associate with a Reverend that has a deep and undying hatred of America, as they say “birds of a feather stick together”. I did notice a stark contrast between the Patriots at the Bundy Ranch and the cheering and applauding audience at Al’s event. Do not think for a minute that will be overlooked by the liberal media. They will not mention the audience make-up(would not want to offend), but they will mention the Patriot make-up(do not care if they offend), of that you can be sure.
I know that I am not the only one who sees this but, BHO and his minions only stick their noses in and interject any thing if the alleged victim is a minority and the perpetrator is white or appears to be so. If it had been a group of illegals surrounded by militia he would have mobilized the federal law enforcement agencies to hold the militia at bay for enforcing a law the federal government, will not and does not but is supposed to be enforcing. Instead of arresting the illegals the Federals would point their weapons at the Militia. Then he would have hopped on Air Force One(his personal tax-payer funded taxi), and been there as they say “in a New York minute” to personally handle the situation or at least given the illegals a welcome to America speech, again rewarding illegal action and punishing good and lawful action. But he would have screwed that up as he has done every time he stuck his nose in things he does not understand. Then we would have to endure another beer summit, or a speech saying that could have been him as a teenager. Give me a freaking break!!!

One has to wonder why after all the time that has passed, why now did the BLM thugs become so aggressive. The administration knew what would happen in fact they hoped for it. This(remember the promise)”most open and transparent administration ever” must have needed time to hide something up their sleeve or needed a distraction to pull something from their sleeve, after all isn’t the BLM a part of the federal government. No government agency can take action without someone issuing “marching orders”, someone in the District of Criminals had to give the order. This goes for all government agencies IRS, DOJ, NSA, DOI, BLM and all the rest, no freelancing is allowed, this goes for all secretaries no matter what department they head. If BHO is allowing each department, agency head or underling to take independent actions(freelancing)we as a nation are in more serious trouble than anyone could imagine. If this is happening BHO gave the order to do what you feel is needed or warranted or what you might think I would want. As I see it everything that has happened, has happened because BHO allowed it an encouraged it, no action to stop an abuse of power is in fact condoning the act.

This latest federal government threats and the actions that were taken may well just be just a taste of what is to come. BHO and his minions will try another stunt, again to test the resolve of Patriotic Americans and they will continue to push until the push-back stops or until they have the resources at hand to attempt to crush all opposition. The law enforcement agencies at all levels are being armed and equipped with some of the same equipment that our Military uses to wage war. I look at the city and county law enforcement today and can’t believe that they have become so militarized both in equipment and dress.

Even some departments with-in the federal government that one would normally never assume has any law enforcement powers has an enforcement arm hidden somewhere in the department. Look at the break down of the department, those of us with experience commonly refer to these as “wiring diagrams”, you will see how many have something called an enforcement division or a protection office. Even the supposedly independent agency of the FCC has an enforcement division, are they armed, I don’t know, but they are tied to Homeland Security, and Homeland Security is armed, they are armed to the teeth with some pretty neat equipment. The Department of Homeland Security has a rather large umbrella, anything could be hidden under it.

There are times that I truly believe that BHO gives his speeches just to stir-up the “dumb masses” which causes even more animosity and strife. He does this knowing sooner or later the more extreme and radical in attendance at his rallies will interpret it as a “call to action”. I also believe that BHO will continue on the path he has chosen and taken, and will also recruit millions of “disenfranchised” loafers to do his bidding in continuing the division of America. An outbreak of violence in the country, anywhere in the country, will give him the go ahead to destroy the rest of the Constitution or at least begin to use it. Habeas Corpus will be denied, citizens could be arrested and held indefinitely without any charge or on trumped-up charges, martial law would be imposed, elections would be postponed, BHO could be president for life. All of the Bill of Rights would be suspended, police and the military would be loosed upon society with no protections from the protectors.

The most recent episode with Federals being out of control was not the first and will not be the last:
Kent State University May 1970
Ruby Ridge in 1992
Waco Siege (Branch Davidians) 1993
There were many before and since, and as pointed out someone somewhere had to give the go ahead. I believe that the order came from the top. These events serve to illustrate the lawlessness of law and the enforcers.

Bunkerville the new Yorktown

Was Bunkerville the new Yorktown? If it was then this is not over, “not over by a long shot”. The British army along with the Hessian mercenaries surrendered having been defeated on the battlefield, the Royal navy at Yorktown was also surrendered by the British commander. The British were busy fighting wars in other parts of the world. The British underestimated the resolve of the Colonials but could not “invest” any more resources in the war with the Colonies. The British Army was beaten, not Britain we again had a war with Britain in 1812. The War of 1812 was fought simply because the victory of the Revolutionary War and the British Army’s surrender did not settle all the issues causing that war. When Britain was defeated every matter was settled. When you engage in a war with a nation not only do you beat them on the battlefield, you must defeat both the military and the country. If fail to defeat the country you will surely fight them again, they will just get a new military. But more than that by not defeating the country you have actually aided them. This is especially true if the same leader is still in power, he saw how you defeated his military the first time. When you engage in war the second time he now has, if he is worth his “salt”, learned your tactics and will use them against you.

As the events in Bunkerville were unfolding I realized two things, first wrong place, second wrong time. The reason I came to this conclusion was this no intelligence, and I don’t mean no sense, on behalf of the Federals. They knew exactly what they were doing but they needed information. They were required to have strict “rules of engagement” and could only react outside of normal law enforcement duties if certain conditions were met. The Federals had a long time to prepare for this. Though they deployed large numbers of BLM rangers they had no intention of provoking. This fact is evident in the videos that were posted. Look at them carefully. One video I found especially interesting was the one with the BLM ranger that came up to the barricade to talk, he had a really nice camera mounted, recorded everything including sound. He was there to identify any suspected leaders, listen to the tone of the people and check for types of weapons that may have been visible. Dark glasses hid the eyes. Facial hair makes supposed professionals look like common thugs. He was not there just to talk if he had been, he would have said what he came to say and backed away. Another interesting moment in the video was the way the rangers left, one in particular just turned and starting walking with his back to the crowd. He either realized it or was told of his mistake and turned to face the crowd and backed away in a defense posture. He probably has an “ass chewing” coming his way. He by his own action admitted the crowd was no threat. This was only an intelligence gathering operation. They are not ready to fight yet.

Watching this unfold brought back memories of my days in the Army. On FTX’s(field training exercises)at company and company plus levels I got to play both parts defender and attacker. In the role of the defender I along with 25 other soldiers were the “advance party” we would secure the bivouac site, but we had the additional responsibility of being the Rapid Reaction Force. Being the defender is basically waiting to be attacked while planning and implementing ways to prevent and counter assaults, but it was fun. Being the attacker was even more fun, though the force was smaller. In the early stages it’s all about intelligence gathering. We would watch the “enemy” for hours or days, daylight and dark to establish their routine and give them time to get comfortable and complacent. I would lead or send out a small party to probe the perimeter of the defending company daylight(highly irregular but effective) and dark, the idea was to tire them out and keep them awake and on edge. But never more would go out than could be afforded to be lost. It takes more resources to defend than to attack. In pretty short order I was able to determine who was coming to repel the attack, how many would come and where they would come from. When I had all the intelligence needed a small probe would draw out the defenders and a full assault in another area would meet with little resistance the objective could then be accomplished. Being the attacker made me a much better defender. I learned much about logistics and most importantly to never to commit all my resources against a ploy to draw out the entire force. Concerning logistics never take more than you can carry in a hurry if you have to, but have more supplies close by if needed. You may be there a while if they are only trying to wear you down and tire you out. On conservation of resources never reveal your true strength, but stage them close by if needed they can respond to assist. The attacker will only continue the attack if the objective is with-in reach, the defender is in it for the long haul.

As to the information gathering operation that just concluded in Bunkerville, the BLM was only “probing”, they had time on their side. They had time to place sophisticated audio and video devices at strategic locations around the ranch, they may have even used drones to locate stragglers. Everyone who was there was photographed for identification. You also were video taped every time you stopped for gas or food. Did you know that most fueling stations and convenience stores have an agreement with local, county and state law enforcement agencies that allow the officer, deputy or trooper to watch live video of the inside and outside of the building. Most people today use credit or debit cards for every purchase, every purchase is traceable back to origination, including card holder and user. The card purchases and video recordings reveal where you came from and how long it took you to get there and how many came. You can bet that some sniveling government bureaucrat is in some little space at this very minute sorting through all this intelligence. They now have gathered all this intelligence, who you are, where you came from, your bank account number and your family and where you work and who you work for. These are pretty powerful tools to use against a person. But it will sit idly by until the next intelligence gathering operation takes place. Who knows it may even be the same place. They will be checking the faces to see who has come back and if any new faces are present where they came from and how long it took them to get there. And again someone will come to talk and he will be sporting a fancy camera doing the same thing the last one did. The government counts one the one thing they can be sure of if the people think they have won they will go back to their everyday lives, they simply wear down and tire out the resistance. Another interesting video with a man responding to a comment about hoping you have a gun with you was, his response was priceless, no they will fire the next shot heard around the world, we will fire the rest. He understands.

Stand tall and watch everything not just the frontal assault.

My home, my furniture, my clothing and my life

My home and my life are simple, my furniture and clothing are also quite simple.
First is my home.
Integrity provides the foundation. Truth provides the walls. The Flag provides the roof. Tranquility provides my windows. The precious blood of the patriots provide the paint inside and out. Honesty is my door. My door is locked at night for your safety not mine.

Second is the furniture in my home.
My bed is the U.S. Constitution. The Declaration of Independence provides my pillow. My blanket is The Bill of Rights. My night stand is provided by The Declaration of Arms. The Holy Bible, King James version, words written in red, provides my light and sits on the night stand, it also provides my map and compass. Diligence provides my table. Virtue provides the chairs. Hard work provides my sofa. Customs and courtesies provide the rest of the furniture.

Third is the clothing I wear.
Freedom provides my pants. Liberty provides my shirt. Self-Reliance provides my coat(I keep one with me year-round). Self-Determination provides my boots(I don’t wear shoes). Honor provides my hat(I always wear one). My under garments are Privacy.

Fourth is my life.
Duty to God and Country. Courage at all times. Accept responsibility. Everything in Moderation. Respect to those that deserve it, none to those that do not. Ever vigilant. Gallantry in actions. Thankful for what I have, and all that I have, jealous of no one. Loyal to my family and friends. Expect no one to do for me, what I should do for myself. Live within my means. Lead when I should, follow when I should, get the hell out-of-the-way when I should and know when to do each. Never tolerate the intolerable. Stand for what is right and just, reject what is not. Protect myself, my family and my home with a vengeance. I choose not to conduct commerce with those who would deny me my Constitutional rights. Accepted the Lord, Jesus Christ as my personal Savior, and pray for forgiveness when I come up short.

Yep, this is me clutching the Bible, the Constitution and my Gun.
