I received a couple of jpgs over the transom and thought, taken together, they provide a quick and simple way to demonstrate what happens when you disarm a country or a people. No long diatribe, just a couple of pics loaded with facts.
Right now, today, we have general election candidates and serving politicians (who are, in fact, communist) shouting from the rooftops to begin the wholesale disarmament of the American nation. Well then, let’s see what these same actions have accomplished over the last……oh, say 119 years across the world.
Now let’s take the latest example, Venezuela, and examine it just a bit more closely:
Let’s see…..socialist president, check. Socialist medicine, check. Free college, check. Ban gun ownership, check. Opposition to socialist government imprisoned, check. Food and healthcare become like ‘dark humor’ – not everyone gets it, check. Constitution and elections suspended, check.
UNARMED CITIZENS (who most likely voted in the crap they’re getting) MASSACRED BY THEIR OWN GOVERNMENT, check.
The narrative hasn’t changed in over 100 years. Show this to your left supporting friends and relatives and ask them to disprove it. They can’t.
Then, go get yourself another AR or AK, a couple of cases of ammo, and get to the range. And then, of course, do the other things you need to for preparation of the next few years. If you think the unrest of the 60’s was severe, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Just pay attention to Venezuela. Maybe look at what happened in Bosnia.
Oh, and voting for Trump? If you want to stave off what’s coming, you might want to consider it, unless you’re one of those sick bastards that wants to see this country devolve into its own hellish war.
One last thing: A socialist is a communist who hasn’t found his/her AK-47 yet. Mike Vanderbeogh said that, and it was right on the money.
Posted at AP on 15 May 18.
Here’s a list compiled in 1958 by W. Cleon Skousen, in his book, “The Naked Communist” and revisited in the book, “The Naked Truth: The Naked Communist – Revisited,” by James C. Bowers, of 45 communist goals that must be accomplished before the US government could be overthrown from a free state and transfigured into a communist state.
Examine it. And once done, please describe any of these that have not yet been accomplished. Then judge as where we are as a people and nation. I’ll be interested to read any comments on this post.
First, what IS ‘EEFI’? As most things military, it’s an acronym, and stands for, ‘Essential Elements of Friendly Information,’ and when enough is known and/or collected, allows an aggressor to piece together a picture of you and your operation, that while not secret or protected, leads to an understanding or a more complete picture of what you’re about, what your plans are, what you may have, what you’re thinking about, and most especially, where you might be vulnerable to an attack. Most folks don’t realize when they’re having a great conversation about various subjects that they’re giving away a treasure trove of essential information that will help an enemy out. Social media has raised the collection of EEFI to an unheard of level. Think about it: how many people post when they’re away from home, what weapons they have, when their kids are home alone, etc, etc, etc?
Any enemy, such as a home invader or kidnapper targeting low hanging fruit (those kids who’s parents tell everything about them on social media including where and when they go to school), communist organizations who don’t like you (ANTIFA, ISIS, BAMN, SPLC, etc), and so on can get a treasure trove of information about you on social media or simply by listening to what you say while chatting with a friend in a restaurant or on a park bench divulging facts really not relevant to anyone but you.
Besides Social Media, the commentary of countless blogs and forums are great for EEFI mining. Someone wanting to target a particular person only need find where they post items, and sit back and take notes. Additionally, most EEFI is provided innocently with pure intent, in discussions between, ‘like minded people’ (mostly on-line, but FTF as well) when others are listening. When everyone’s having dinner at the same time, and the table next to yours (that you have no idea of their leanings or core beliefs) has a few hard core libtards having tofu and hear you start to talk about your ‘armory’ to a good buddy who’s just waking up to what’s likely to go down, and they mention it to a good friend who’s into arming Antifa….you could have an issue.
Don’t think it isn’t happening? Think again.
“But DTG,” you say, “It COULD be disinformation being put out!” Sure it could. Live and on-line. But most likely, it’s accurate information, because the people flat out discussing or posting the EEFI are looking for validation from their meat space or on-line ‘friends’ on what they’re doing, what equipment/weapons/preps they have, and so on, and most importantly, are not trained INTEL folks who know how to sew disinformation.
Example: Someone wants you dead for whatever reason, or more realistically, someone wants to pin point those in their immediate proximity who might be able to provide re-supply of ammo, weapons, food, clothing and such, should things, ‘Go South.’ All that person has to do is find out what username or ‘nom de guerre’ the person of interest uses, and what blogs, web sites, and forums they frequent, and simply sit back and take notes.
The following image applies to those who cannot help ‘blabbing’ everything they have, know, and are doing to prepare for hard times. The enemy follows this dictum closely:
Field exercise: Go through comments on any blog or forum you frequent, and you’ll see folks talk about how many and what type of weapons they have, how much ammo and what type, how much food, and so forth. Then go to other like minded blogs and sites and read what people tell you about themselves. It’s not hard to find them. Really.
Bottom line? When it comes to telling unknown people about what you could do to either survive a bad situation or repel marauders, there’s only one thing to say:
Not. A. Good. Idea.
It’s so prevalent and goes on so much, that when I was training a survival groups, I’d give homework assignments based on certain news articles on first responder organizations and ask them: “What can you tell me about ‘X’ department’s capabilities based on what is in this news article? For the next month, based on the first article, there should be at least two follow up news articles. Whoever puts together the most complete capabilities description wins.”
In one department, we found out how many radios they had, what type they were, what the members thought about them, what a typical response time was, and so on. If we had been ‘bad actors,’ we’d have had a great amount of information based on an ‘open source.’
I also gave an assignment for, “Predict the Probability of an Easy Home Invasion,” by people you know on Social Media who post everything in their lives on the various social media sites. The group was able to find out who wasn’t home, who left their 17 year old daughter alone at home while they went on vacation, where certain families were going to be, when they would be leaving and when they’d return, who had dogs, who had dog sitters, etc, etc, etc, etc.
If you were a bad person, wouldn’t EEFI be your, “Bestie”? Dang Skippy it would.
Now, I’m not an INTEL guy by any stretch of the imagination. However, I was trained to observe, listen, and read what an OPFOR put out as ‘news releases.’
Consider doing a couple things: 1 – When someone posts an article or question on things you might want to have, DO NOT post comments on what you have compared to the article. 2 – When doing your own preps and observing your own AO, actively listen to what those around you say and do. Write it down for future reference. Should something bad happen, you’ll have a better picture of what the folks who might be like minded have to help you help them. If they’re not like minded, and are basically OPFOR, you’ll have a better idea of their capabilities and intent.
Remember, “Trust, but Verify”?
That’s something we should all do before we start giving everything away.
If bad people out there want information, make them at LEAST work for it. Don’t make their jobs easier. And make no mistake, there are people out there watching this and many, many, many other sites who wish everyone else in the readership very, very, very bad things, up to, and including death.
Remember that innocent discussions can be gleaned of valuable nuggets of information. Essential information. About you and yours.
In an email Tuesday night, former Congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul released an ominous statement claiming that a source they have in the Senate revealed Democrats are teaming up with Republicans to push through a massive gun control bill.
According to their source, as Paul explained, “Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) are teaming up with Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) to ram through one of the worst nationwide gun confiscation schemes ever devised.”
The gun confiscation bill, according to Paul, is designed to disarm Americans without any due process. The senators are using the recent tragic shooting in Texas as the impetus behind the law—in spite of the fact that this law would not have prevented the shooting at all.
As the Free Thought Project has previously reported, some states have already begun implementing laws like this one. Using mass shootings as a their ammunition, states have enacted “Red Flag” or “Risk Protection” laws which allow police to confiscate a person’s weapon before they are ever given a chance to defend themselves.e two men were suspected of committing a crime, nor had they committed a crime.
Under the fifth and fourteenth amendments, due process clauses are in place to act as a safeguard from arbitrary denial of life, liberty, or property by the government outside the sanction of law. What’s more, neither of the men were granted their sixth amendment rights to be confronted with the witnesses against them. In both cases, simple orders—under new laws—were issued, arguably arbitrarily, which stripped these two men of their property.
In spite of what officials and the media claim, when a person is stripped of their constitutional rights, albeit temporarily, without being given the chance to make their own case based on what can be entirely arbitrary accusations, this is the removal of due process.
As Ron Paul explains, this removal of due process could soon be a federal law.
Under so-called “Red Flag” or “Risk Protection” Orders, anti-gun family members, neighbors, or associates could have your guns taken away based on mere accusations without any real due process or trial.
In secret court proceedings, where only your accuser is present, judges could determine that you pose a “significant danger” to someone, including yourself.
Imagine your surprise when a heavily armed SWAT Team arrives to seize your lawfully owned firearms.
It would then cost you tens of thousands of dollars in court costs and weeks or even months to try and convince the court they made a mistake.
To be clear, no one here is advocating for people determined to be mentally unfit to be able to possess firearms. However, they need to be determined to be mentally unfit before they lose their rights.
To those who may be in favor of such laws, consider the following: There is no way to stop an estranged spouse from calling police repeatedly and telling them their ex is threatening to cause harm to others. While the man in Florida had his guns taken for being psychologically unfit, the man in Seattle simply open-carried a pistol and looked out of windows and his guns were taken because his neighbors thought it was strange.
Anyone, any time, now has the ability to claim someone else is a threat and have police take their guns. One does not need to delve into the multiple ‘what if’ scenarios to see what sort of ominous implications arise from such a practice. What’s more, police in some states now have the power to deem you a threat at any time and legally disarm you—due process be damned.
This is the exact scenario that Donald Trump advocated for in February.

As Ron Paul explains, this is entirely unconstitutional.
The words of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution are so easy to grasp:
“. . . the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
There were no asterisks and no footnotes. There are no sentences that follow which start with the words “unless” or “however.” The right to defend your life and property shall not be infringed by the government.
Paul’s Campaign for Liberty has set up the Defend the Second Amendment Directive where citizens can sign a petition to demand their Senator not pass this blow to freedom and self-defense. You can sign it here.
Please share this article to let your friends and family that saying, “they are coming for our guns,” is not a conspiracy theory.
It came first with a tax and a set of laws. The Ottoman, seeking to further cement its Iron fist from the Sultanate, fearing growing issues in Europe and desiring a means to motivate the growing social revolutionary youth class, found their savior in creating the long thorn in their side- the holdouts of a conquered culture, the remaining scaffolds of the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Eastern Roman Empire among the Armenian minority population. Islam had tolerated them though repression, but as the winds of change began to blow with a new generation, so did the attitude towards the Dhimmi.
Among the youthful Marxist-inspired revolutionary class, an unholy marriage of marxism and Islam was created. The Young Turks, as they became known, sought solidarity throughout the Ottoman Empire. Dhimmis were thus not allowed to own any new property, and what property was owned could no longer sit on higher elevations than their Saracen counterparts. Ethnic schools began to be first heavily taxed then put out of business, and those which refused were killed quietly. As word began to spread, awareness among the oppressed grew. But as the proverbial boiling pot analogy goes, there was little escape.
By this time, in the second decade of the Twentieth Century among the meat grinder of World War I, a final solution to the cultural dilemma was realized based upon the model created first in the progressive United States and then in British South Africa with the Boers; the Concentration and mechanized extermination of those who refuse to submit. The Turkish model differed however; instead of the creation of camps, outright murder would prove a method more palatable.
Prisoners of another minority class, the Kurds, were released and armed, told they’d be exonerated if they killed on behalf of the Ottoman, not unlike the Saracen Janissary of yore. And kill they did. Wanton murder became the norm, and the press created a sensation of this brutal gang running amok in the countryside senselessly targeting the Christian minority. Under the auspices of protection, the Ottoman Gendarme was invited into the holdout villages. They soon joined in the destruction as two pincers of a machine.
Pictured above was often the result- crucified women and children in a profane offense to their religion, while the men were forced to watch and later executed. The Ottoman, like most things coming from the Islamic world, was brutish and incompetent; a good number escaped despite their best efforts. The much maligned Kurds of Northern Iraq, some of which complicit in the genocide, also protected the fleeing Armenians and secured passage to other parts of the world.
It is not there that this tale ends; although the Ottoman Empire was broken and the remaining Armenians in the far eastern regions created a new nation and aligned with the Warsaw Pact for protection, this history is still being written today. While any Western school child can tell you anything about the Nazi’s plan of WWII, none are taught anything about the models by which it was built upon, or the other populations which suffered under the boot of tyranny. They are not taught the propensity for violence inherent in both Islam and Marxism; conversely praise is offered along with derision for those cornerstones of Christianity which have moved mountains. Our president refused to acknowledge the genocide on it’s hundred year anniversary in 2015- a terribly significant act but one which went unnoticed by a complicit press and a rabidly ignorant populace. A false coup in Turkey further cemented the power of a man seeking to recreate the glory days of the Ottoman Empire Caliphate, as he says as much. We have a generation of young marxists who see little issue with Islam or the evil at it’s root; as long as it’s profane to the righteous, it matters not by which means control is gained.
To survive, the Lassiez-faire attitude of certain “Libertarians” towards religion must end. Though controversial, this statement is irrefutably true through every historical example. Islam is utterly incompatible with the West and any free people. And Christianity is that which cements and galvanizes a culture. Look about the regions which currently see the greatest cultural siege and tell me this is not true. Although not an essay on dogma alone, this fact cannot be ignored; however anyone refuting such should be, thus. I seek to remind you who disagree, that in the absence of a rooting or unifying culture no movement can or will ever gain traction.The left has it; the right simply has reaction.
This has been an incredibly difficult article to write; I buried my Grandmother yesterday. This story was hers, of a people whom history forgot, and at a time where those reigns seem to be re-forming. She lived to see the Coup of Ergodan, and despite her increasingly frail state, knew the larger plan at work. The faces may change but the people do not, and might I remind you all, the groundwork here at home has already been laid. Don’t say it can’t happen.
Listen to what the man says….
This needs to go viral….here’s the link.
Heads up, boys and girls:
Virginia – (via Ammoland.com) Last weekend, while doing what seemed to be a regular interview, I discovered that a movie is being made with the intent to discredit gun-rights leaders across the country.
No, this is not a joke, it is real and we need to get the word out to other gun-rights organizations, gun-rights leaders, and prominent firearms trainers across the country and we need to do this FAST.
Back in 2014, alleged Hollywood sexual predator Harvey Weinstein said he was going to make a movie “that would make the NRA wish they weren’t alive.” (All gun organizations are the NRA in his mind.) And he was dead serious. Michael Moore has been attempting to discredit gun owners and leaders for years by tricking people and using creative editing techniques to make them look foolish or idiotic.
Who’s behind this effort isn’t clear, but they are EXTREMELY WELL FUNDED PROFESSIONALS.
Think a Leftard version of the Veritas Project, by way of Borat.
As the 15-minute interview terminated, the interviewer asked me if I, as an English-speaking firearms trainer, would help him make a “gun safety” training video for children of various ages. This had to be the “kicker,” I thought.
I was right – it was a set up – and it was much worse than I could have imagined. If you’ve seen the 70’s movie, “The Sting,” it was much like that. It was a well-orchestrated, well-choreographed, psychological manipulation, with a production cast of at least 10 people, to slowly lead a person down the primrose path.
We went step-by-step with a ready, and seemingly logical, answer every time I balked at some crazy part of the training. They seemed to have thought of every thing that a person might question. All I can say is that these people were extremely good at deception and manipulation. And no matter how stupid the things the interviewer and I were doing (we were side-by-side the whole time), no one else cracked a smile or laughed once, and I was watching. The professional actors were keeping up the appearance that this was a serious project.
The end goal was to get the victim to make a “training film”teaching 3 and 4-year-olds how to shoot guns hidden in toy animals at “bad” people, to sing little songs and make gun noises during the training to make it “fun for children,” and even teach little kids how to shoot a rocket-propelled-grenade or a squad automatic weapon at an approaching suicide bomber vehicle!
It all sounds unbelievable. But everything was elaborately and expensively staged; every contingency planned for, with explanations that make unbelievable things seem plausible (fake documents and videos about how Israel handles security in their schools, for example). The interview moved along at a pace, designed not to give the “mark” time to reflect on where things are going. The craziness factor very gradually got more extreme, like cooking a frog by slowly heating up the water so he doesn’t realize what’s happening until it’s too late. It’s a con game, a sting, plain and simple.
I don’t know if they have other scenarios or they will use other company names to continue concealing their identity, but anyone doing an interview dealing with gun rights where they sense something odd should terminate that interview. Or, better, bring a recorder and tell the other party you are going to make your own recording of the interview. If they say “no,” then walk out. I am going to make that my own policy going forward to protect against any future fake interviews. BTW, they had me leave my cellphone in an office “because it might interfere with the recording devices,” but I think it was so I couldn’t take any photos of them or make any video or audio recordings on that phone.
I’ve worked in production for A-list movies and TV for over 20 years, kids. There’s quite simply no way in hell a cellphone would “interfere with recording devices”. On an average set, there are 100 cellphones within 50 feet of the camera and sound cart 24/7/365/forever.
There’s more at the link, incl. screenshots of their WhoIs lookup, their LLC filing papers shielded as a WY corporation, their business address maildrop at a UPS Store in West Hollywood, and multiple Craigslist posting trolling for crisis actors and marks.
And pass the word on every pro-gun and 2A-friendly site you visit, and to any and all firearms trainers and spokesperson you know about.
These @$$holes have a bone to pick, and a serious dose of the red-@$$ with guns, the NRA, gun owners, and the whole crew of Trumpist MAGA Deplorables. So based on the info at the link, I don’t doubt for a moment that somebody with deep pockets is ginning up a BS hit piece, exactly as described, and probably far worse.
Warn off the good guys, try to dox the bad guys, and let’s burn these mofos down.
And FFS, remember:
THERE IS NO ONE IN THE MEDIA – NEWSPAPERS, RADIO, TV, DOCUMENTARY, WHATEVER – WHO IS YOU’RE FRIEND, UNLESS YOU KNOW THEM AND THEIR PUBLIC PRO-2A POSITION PERSONALLY, INTIMATELY, AND EXTENSIVELY.
Write that on your hand in laundry marker in case you forget.
