If it Walks Like a Duck….

You know the old saw – “If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and swims like a duck, IT’S A DUCK!”

I found this post to be very telling regarding the purpose of BLM.  It’s a known fact their leadership is Marxist, and proud about saying so.  Now we get some much better indications of what they really are about.  Leadership forms and guides the policy of any organization.

This is from Freedom Headlines.

It speaks for itself.

Training – It Does a Body Good!

Besides your daily dry fire and ‘routine PT’, here’s a few things you can do that will pay HUGE dividends when things get sporty.

Carry your piece where ever you go, all day, every day:  Notice the lady above looks as if she’s just having that morning cup of coffee, and is dressed up for the pandemic.  It doesn’t necessarily mean rifle; a concealed or openly carried side arm does nicely to get you in the habit of having a weapon on at all times.  Also, carry at LEAST 2 spare magazines with you.  Remember you need to have a holster that will retain the pistol and a mag holder that retains the mags during vigorous activity.  And while you’re at it, do your PT with your sidearm and mags on.  Yes, that means you need to have your belt on, too.

Practice taking your rifle/carbine down…..blindfolded:  Old school?  Most certainly; the objective is to know your rifle/carbine inside out.  It’s a confidence builder with benefits.   Let’s say you’ve been defending hearth and home and you get a really good malfunction.  You’ve run sports, and during the Observe, you see something’s not right.  You’ve also got a competing need to observe the area where the bad guys are.  So, knowing your rifle/carbine that you can quickly field strip it to be able to clear the malfunction,  situation with a malfunction, you can keep your eyes on your primary field of fire while you get set to take care of the malfunction.

Take Advantage of the Time to Walk Long Distances:  Not to discuss the completely illogical ‘grounding’ rules most states are adopting, even though we’re supposed to stay home except when we’re outside exercising, use it!  A couple times a week get out there and hump a ruck, or just hump a few miles.  Fast as you can!  Dividends will be paid, all things being equal.  I’m at twide a week now, high end 7.5 miles, today 6 miles with a very light ruck.  I’m a little tender in the knees and hip flexors, but in a few days, I’ll feel normal again, and be able to go longer with a bit more weight.

Review your LBE (load bearing equipment) set up and modify as needed:  It’s probably been a while since you may have worn it, or maybe you’ve got it, but have never fitted it you, or maybe you have, but you have it sized for winter.  As it’s mid-May, time to adjust it for summer/fall.  Remember not to over-load it, too.

Touch up the Paint on your Rifle/Carbine and your magazines:  I’ve done two so far, and next week when it is warmer, I’m doing another paint job.  Remember not to get to intricate on your designs; it’ kind of will turn into a smudge at a reasonable distance.  Large swaths of earth tones in diagonal curves will work.  If you want your brands visible, take a small piece of painters  tape and cover it.  After the paint has cured, go back and pull the tape.  I do this religiously on things like power indicators on my optics.

Wash , dry, and otherwise clean all your ‘sporty time’ clothing:  I don’t mean just the latest and greatest camouflage uniforms, either.  Old coats, hoodies – the more faded the better!  Trim fit tailoring is not your friend, either!  You’re not going to want to be noticed if we get to that point.

Set Up Your Comms Network:  The old saying, “If you ain’t got comms, you aint got jaaaaaaaaccck!” comes to mind.  Enough said; there’s lots of good sources out there.  Once it’s set up, start using it!  Just don’t broadcast anything important!  Think EEFI, OPSEC, INFOSEC, and PERSEC,  Every single thing you say can and will be collected to put into the jigsaw puzzle that paints a very, very clear picture of your strengths and weaknesses to those who don’t wish you well.

 

 

Virginia – WRSA Post Comments

Really interesting commentary there – looks as if there’s going to be ‘some doins’ on 20 Jan 2020.  I hope the day is peaceful, but reading the comments at WRSA, there are definitely some provocateurs looking to start something…anything.

Or as Phil from, “The Vulgar Curmudgeon,” in the comments about half way down (when I checked) ‘Two words:  Pig. Trap.’


The Results of Communists Acting ‘For the Greater Good’

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.

 

What Specific Goals has the Communist Party NOT Achieved in the USA?

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.

  1.  U.S. acceptance of co-existence as the only alternative to atomic war.
  2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
  3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament by the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
  4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
  5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
  6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
  7. Grant recognition of Red China.  Admission of Red China to the UN.
  8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the Germany question by free elections under supervision of the UN.
  9. Prolong the Conferences to ban atomic tests, because the U.S. has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
  10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the UN.
  11. Promote the UN as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the UN as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other.)
  12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
  13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
  14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
  15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the U.S.
  16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
  17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum.  Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in text-books.
  18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
  19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
  20. Infiltrate the press.  Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.
  21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
  22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings; substitute shapeless, awkward, and meaningless forms.”
  23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaning-less art.”
  24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
  25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
  26. Present homo-sexuality, degeneracy, and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
  27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social religion.”  Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”
  28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
  29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to co-operation between nations on a worldwide basis.
  30. Discredit the American founding fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
  31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of “the big picture.”   Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
  32. Support any Socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture — education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
  33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
  34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
  35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
  36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
  37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
  38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies.   Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand or treat.
  39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
  40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
  41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents.   Attribute prejudices, mental blocks, and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
  42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use “united force” to solve economic, political or social problems.
  43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
  44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
  45. Repeal the Connally Reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction over domestic problems.  Give the World Court jurisdiction over nations and individuals alike.

Happy Wednesday….
