A national police force…..

From Wirecutter’s site, here.

“The administration must quickly establish a national commission to review existing police policies and practices,” the letter reads. “And identify the best policies and practices that can prevent more Fergusons and vastly improve policing in communities across the nation.”

Police Draw and Shoot

The letter calls for the appointment of a federal czar within the Justice Department to monitor and oversee local police departments that receive federal funding.

They will end up bullying and abusing local police.

The CBC claims they want to stop the militarization of police while they are actually demanding nationalization of the police in all states, a move that would ensure the U.S. would one day be a police state.

The letter claims “systemic racial bias”, using the Ferguson case as an example and while also acknowledging the facts in the Brown case are unclear. They want control over hiring and firing in the local police organizations by implementing national standards. The czar would constantly oversee local law enforcement and new rules and regulations would be passed non-stop. It would be another uncontrollable and overly-large and powerful executive branch agency.

Don’t let a good crisis go to waste. It sounds like a new pen and phone action by Obama is coming our way.

If you were worried about the U.S. becoming a police state, you should be terrified now. Central control over our police organizations will lead to exactly that.

The people who want this said it would be meant to “prevent more Fergusons.” These are the same people who would readily hang Officer Wilson without evidence and without a trial.

The DOJ is doing that now. Instead of prosecuting real criminals, Holder is involving himself, at the behest of Obama, in the local police affairs of Ferguson without cause. There is absolutely no evidence that the St. Louis police won’t thoroughly and effectively investigate the case of Officer Darren Wilson.

Holder has no business being involved in the case and now the CBC wants it to be done consistently.

There will be no state’s rights if they have their way.

From Leon’s Blog.

Here are five wilderness survival skills that could help you survive this urban emergency.

Shelter: The first decision might be to get out of the elements. Do you know how to tie effective knots? Can you make a shelter out of the available materials?

It could be the best place to find shelter materials is in the nearby dumpster. Look for anything that can insulate you from the elements: plastic sheeting, newspapers, cardboard etc.

Check out the trash can – if it has a 55-gallon liner, you can make a quick shelter out of it.

Water: Any water you might find should be suspect, unless it is bottled or otherwise sealed from contamination.

Fire: You should know how to build a campfire using whatever flammable materials that might be available. Many of the people in the parking lot might need a place to get warm, and light as it gets dark will be really appreciated. Also, boiling water is usually the quickest way to purify it. Make sure to get any containers from the dumpster – you may need them later.

Obviously, if you smell gas or the situation seems dangerous, don’t play with fire!

Navigation: If you have to leave the area because staying would be dangerous, do you know where to go, and which way to take to get there? Can you read a city street map and use a compass? During a storm, or in the darkness, you may not be able to determine directions. Be able to orient a map and know how to read it.

First aid: Everybody should take a basic first aid class. You don’t have to reach EMT expertise, but a rudimentary knowledge is important. After any sort of disaster, somebody will be hurt, and you may be the only one available to help. This is not the time to look around frantically and wonder what to do.

The Feds Let Go of Dozens of Convicted Murder Illegal Immigrants, See Where They Are on This Map

Socialism is not the Answer

NRO

The Center for Immigration Studies has used information provided to the office Senator Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa) to map out the locations of where convicted killers were let go by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials in 2013. The killers were booked out in 24 states and were associated with 96 different cities, according to the CIS report. The following map shows with red dots the ZIP codes where they were released and with blue squares the ICE centers where they were booked out:

The state where the greatest number of illegal immigrants with homicide-related convictions were reportedly released was California. CIS says the city or town with the greatest concentration of convicted-killer illegal immigrants was Miami, followed by Los Angeles and the Bronx.

The Purpose of Physically Difficult Training for YOUR NPT

Tiger

FACT: OPFOR will not have any mercy on you because you’re ‘just a regular guy’ or because you’ve put a lot of income into preps. They have a thing for ‘regular guys’ because typically, they don’t fight back, or they make it very, very easy for OPFOR to take them apart because of the, “I’ll die on my front porch” mindset.

Lately, one faction of OPFOR, ISIS, has a penchant for cutting heads off of journalists with a 6 inch dagger. You know….sawing through? With the pain of a knife that causes the victim to scream until his or her vocal chords are cut?  Sawing through the neck tendons, arteries, esophagus, and spinal cord, with the victim able to feel everything until losing consciousness, even after the vocal chords are cut.  Don’t make the mistake of thinking the other factions of OPFOR won’t do things similar or worse. Don’t make the mistake of thinking the things happening into the Middle East can’t happen here.  Don’t make the mistake of thinking we don’t have ‘home grown’ barbarians every bit or more savage in their intent and actions as the most fervent ISIS member.

BEST OPTION:  Your best option is to get into the best shape you can get into, without excuse, and within your physical limitations, and take the hardest training you can get. From us, JC Dodge, MaxSierra 12, Sam, or Mosby.  Sure, you’re going to have to pay for it.  Putting on training costs money.  And the there’s always the bottom line fact:  You get what you pay for.  Go all ‘Wally World’ and try to get it free by reading it and then applying it, you are in definite ‘hit or miss’ territory.  Obviously, cost of training v. ROI (Return On Investment) is a consideration, but DTG and JC offer discounts if you’re a III Percent Society for America member.  You might consider joining to take advantage of the perk.

Once you schedule some essential training, make sure you’re doing everything you can to not be sidelined by physical issues, then embrace the physical discomfort willingly. Mind over matter. Make your body understand your mind doesn’t matter how much it bitches, and that you won’t quit. The instructors can throw you out, they can use your lifeless body for a floor mat, but you won’t quit. Mindset, it’s what gets you through the hard times. And hard times are coming. But you know this. You read Pete’s offerings; you read Sam’s. You read all of the legitimate sites, and probably some on the ‘fringe’.

Don’t make the mistake of taking the ‘marshmallow ride’ and expect to come out of it actually being able to bring fear and death to an enemy in a SHTF situation, when you and yours have been targeted by seriously evil people.  It’s not a realistic expectation.

There’s only one way to do it right, and that’s through as much intensity (read, ‘physical discomfort’) in your training that you can take (and only you can determine where your limitations are, and then how/when you can push through them), whatever level that may be, every single time you train, until you know what you need to know and can do what you need to do. And then, you need to maintain the level of ‘hard core’ you’ve achieved. It’s perishable. Believe me.

Honesty, both personal and interpersonal comes in here. Not everyone can do the physical things required of a roving NPT patrol; not everyone can shoot at the level one needs to attain practical accuracy, and not everyone has the resolve to do what a NPT might be required to do in the field when engaged by bad people.

During the training phase of the conflict, ie, ‘now’, you, dear reader, need to be brutally honest with yourself (a type of adversity in and of itself for some) and then with your NPT. If you can’t hack it, say so, and do something to support those who can. Be the supply guy/gal. Be the admin. Be the static location medic. Be the cook. Be the communications guru. Be the intel guy/gal (but learn how properly from someone like Guerilla America or Information Operations.  Be the ‘guy’ who’s doing what he can with what he’s got.

Shared adversity brings out the best/worst of people’s inherent traits during training, and have no doubt about ‘real world’ SHTF/WROL situations.

Adversity forges camaraderie among participants; it’s why you’ll see people give greater training discounts to 4 person teams registering for various seminars/training courses.  The team actually receives more intangible benefits than the lone participant.

Always keep in mind that for the NPT, UW fits the bill much better than ‘door kicking’ or ‘CQB’ (though important as well) and as such, requires more capabilities from the student to think independently and be part of a team at the same time, because you’re most likely going to be operating without support, without replacements, and without resupply (except for that which you receive after a successful engagement with OPFOR).

Anyone up for some strenous training 18 -21 September?  Go here for details.

Jihadist Murders Four Americans INSIDE US… Media Totally Silent

Well…isn’t THIS special?? Got training??

Socialism is not the Answer

Conservative Tribune

Unlike Israelis who face the threat of Hamas rocket attacks from Gaza every day, Americans like to think that they are safe from radical Islamic terrorists at home. But that safety may be an illusion.

20110802_BeheshtiAIR

The barbarians of the Islamic State have already threatened to conquer America and raise the Islamic flag over the White House. Benjamin Netanyahu has warned America that radical Islamic terrorists have the United States in their sights, and Texas Governor Rick Perry has put the nation on notice that radical Islamists may already have crossed into the country illegally over the nation’s porous southern border.

But these warnings overlook a potentially enormous threat to Americans–attacks by radical Islamic terrorists who are also American citizens, like the mass murders allegedly committed by Ali Muhammad Brown that the American media has completely ignored.

Oh, Canada!

Wow….and they said it could never happen where it might affect ‘Murika’…..hmmm….well, if they’re recruiting in Canada, you can be your last round they’re in the US and actively planning things to kill YOU.  So…might want to get out from behind that keyboard and get some training in.  Maybe register for our next class on 18 – 21 September….details here.

Good luck trying to learn all that small unit tactics stuff from your computer chair…..

JPFO to be Merged with SAF?!?!?!?!?! Say it ain’t so!!!!

Don’t let this happen, folks.  It’s not for the better.  I’ve been a member of JPFO over other so-called ‘2nd Amendment organizations’ for a long time now.

JPFO takes action!  Join.  Renew.  Donate.  Don’t let SAF water down JPFO’s message or actions.  We will be weakened even more if the merger does occur.

And if it does, I’m taking my ball and going home.  I will not support Alan Gottlieb and the 2AF.  I’ll terminate my membership immediately.

Lives.  Fortunes.  Sacred Honor.
