Fred Markert: Only ONE Way to Save America from Collapse

Which is imminent.  Take the hour it’ll cost you to watch the  complete video.  Time well spent.  Forewarned is forearmed.  In fact, you can listen to it while you clean your rifles and pistols after a range session.

Link works; won’t embed, so click the link.

I’m Not Going to Be Around This Friday/Saturday….

Got lots of range time worked into the schedule.  You should, too!

Current projections show I’m going to have a GREAT weekend; hope you have the same.  If I can post, I will, but I need time behind the stock of a few rifles and a couple of pistols.   Remember what the graphic says….

This is Why You Keep Shooting Until the Threat Changes Shape or Catches Fire…

As is getting more and more usual these days, H/T to Wirecutter, as he seems to find the most interesting and relevant videos to post.  Really, if you’re not going there on a daily basis, you’re missing out on some great posts and some really funny posts!

This one is about if one might survive three 5.56NATO rounds to the chest.  Now, admittedly, this is with assumed M193 55gr FMJ, which a lot of people still use.  It is NOT Federal MSR (a superb round) or M855 (which is not quite as fast as the M193) or a 62gr OTM, all of which would most likely have catastrophic results.  The point?  Hit your target and hit it again.  Until it stops moving.  Watch.

BLOAT (Buy Lots of Ammo Today)

This is NOT, “Crying Wolf”…

We don’t have a lot of time left to get our collective $h!t together.  One only needs to peruse the news on a daily basis to see our country as a whole, our state, and our local areas are about to be swallowed up by the communist agitation that is non-stop.  Most of us who watch are the ‘worker bees’, doing our jobs, raising our kids, and trying to do the ‘right thing’ by being good neighbors and quiet, law abiding citizens.

We have to discard the ‘normalcy bias’ and I mean RFN.  These are NOT normal times, these are NOT normal circumstances, and the Republic, that Benjamin Franklin admonsihed that we had, “if we could keep it,” is about to physically, culturally, and economically die a very painful death.

An aside:  Those of you who claim that Rome took hundreds of years to fall, which it did, do not take into account the speed given to events by way of technology.  We are moving at light speed in comparison to Rome regarding it’s fall.

Without fail, you must not only consider, but act.  You must stock up on anything you know (not think) you will need to care for yourself, your family, and your local AO now.  Supplies have dwindled VERY fast, and things like ammo, viable weapons, and so forth, are at their lowest supply EVER in our history.  My Glock 19 Gen 3 cost me less than $400, shipped, with 3 mags less than 3 years ago.  Try to get that price now, if you can find one.  9mm Federal HST just a year ago cost me .39 per round for 1000  rounds.  Try to find that now; you’re going to pay .90 a round or more if you can find it.  Same with .45 ACP.

Lets’ look at food – prices are up 50% in the last 5 months.  Sure, blame it on the ‘scamdemic’ because that part is true.  Guess what?  The ‘scamdemic’ is NEVER going to be over!  Not until every single American is shot up full of toxic vaccines that haven’t been proven.  That means that the supply chain for meat, poultry, pork, vegetables, and all sorts of sundry goods is going to contract, slowly at first, like it is now, and then more quickly.  In the foreseeable future, you will see people standing in line at empty stores when the government protected shipments arrive to get their ‘ration.’  Mark my words.

And I hear people worried about their sons and daughters not being able to go to the frickin’ prom!  Trust me,  they don’t need a stretch limo, a tux, or a formal gown to lose their cherry – chances are it’s loooooooonnnnnnnngggg gone!  Did that offend you?  Too damn bad!  We’re talking about surviving this revolution against our country!  If I were a parent with a ripe, 16 or 17 year old daughter, I’d be planning on how to save her from becoming a NFAC/BLM/BAMN play thing, not about her prom.  Speaking of those groups, they have plainly made their case that this is about skin color and taking what they believe is theirs by entitlement.  Just ask, “Grandmaster Jay.”

Get as much ammo as you can.  Now.  Practice.  Now.   Once it goes kenitic, all you’re going to get is OJT.  And when THAT happens, you’ll know you didn’t practice enough when you get drilled in the ass.

More and more at my range I see ‘gansta’ type blacks practicing.  True honesty here:  I also see blacks who are workers like me, worried about keeping their families and selves safe.  The gangsta types can’t shoot to save their asses, at least not yet, and don’t like seeing the old man doing head shots at 25 meters with an old M9.  Or a Glock 41. Or whatever I’m shooting that day.

So, call me a ‘racissss’ if you want, but I see the time growing very, very short, and if you don’t want to end up like the jpeg below, you need to get your ass in gear.

Just sayin’….

Me?  I’m going to the range as long as I can.  Every week.


2nd Lockdown? It Appears We’re Being Conditioned for it…

On the 28th of July, an article in SHTF Plan, here, indicated that we’re being warned about the 2nd lockdown coming soon.  This time, we might be really locked down, depending on how the remaining police and national guard troops respond to the tyrannical orders of the governors who spit and piss on constitutional rights.  This pic immediately below shows peaceful protest that may never be seen again.

An aside.  You are aware, aren’t you, that the term, ‘lockdown’ is a term coined by prison guards to ensure inmates are tightly controlled?  Just wanted to make sure as it’s now part of the lexicon used in schools, churches, corporations, etc.  We ‘lockdown’ to make sure nobody can move or do anything not authorized by the ‘aw-thor-i-tays.’  Digression complete.

This morning, as I read the on-line news, my gubernator, Gretchen Twitmer, was quoted CNN with Chris ‘Fredo’ Cuomo, saying, ” I’m trying to nip this in the bud,” says @GovWhitmer on Covid-19 in MI.

“If we want to have any shot of getting our kids back in schools safely in four weeks, our actions today are going to dictate whether or not that’s possible… that’s why we have to tighten things up now.”

— Cuomo Prime Time (@CuomoPrimeTime) August 1, 2020

They always, ALWAYS telegraph their moves.  They really are going for broke on this;  clearly, Whitmer’s mission is to destroy Michigan’s economy and make the state population of 10 million people dependent on the government.  All sorts of things can happen then.  All for the betterment of our communist masters.

This is the precursor to the American Holomodor.   It will happen by design, because the economy is being shut down by design.   If food can’t be brought in, people can be starved into submission.  Food is a weapon.

Another article by Fred Reed posted at, titled, “It’s Gonna Blow Be a Miracle if it Don’t”

Selected grafs:

“The media encourage the rioters, inflame passions either deliberately or through partisanship. They have little idea what they are encouraging. It may seem strange to say that the media do not know what is going on—it is their business to know–but they don’t. They were blindsided by the Trump because they had no idea of conditions in the country, in Flint and Gary, in Wheeling. Today they do not know what is brewing out there, or of how much they contribute to it.”

“And BLM [Antifa, BAMN, NFAC] wants to go into the suburbs to get Whitey. God help us. Then it will well and truly blow. BLM doesn’t know how many white men are sick of the chaos and destruction, sick of BLM. They quietly say, “Bring it on. Let’s settle it.” Laden words.”  (Emphasis and brackets added for clarity.)

“It’s gonna blow. Short of a miracle.”

Whether or not you are convinced these groups mean to kill whites to take their wealth for ‘reparations’, do not discard their intent.  They can learn to use the weapons they have, no matter how inept they may seem now.  Remember the clip from, “Black Hawk Down,” that showed how the SF troop was finally killed after all his ammo was expended by a man with only the training necessary to pull a trigger at about 5 feet from the target?  Expect BHD levels of violence and attacks if it does blow, as Fred indicates.

Do read the all the articles posted above.  Get your stuff together.  As the song says, there’s a bad moon on the rise.

And remember:

Looks Like BLM is Stepping Up it’s Armory…

Forewarned is forearmed.  First, stay away from crowded protest locations.  Second, go ‘heeled’ at all times, as they used to say in Tombstone, and three, if forced to engage to save your life or that of another, make sure you don’t hesitate and you hit your aiming point to neutralize the threat.  Controlled pairs in the Occular Cavity do nicely.  Remember, everybody, including NFAC, wears vests.

Black Lives Matter caught making homemade BOMBS out of fireworks, lacing them with NAILS

(Natural News) A Black Lives Matter (BLM) “protest” group in Georgia modified fireworks and turned them into nail-laced bombs that they chucked at the Atlanta Field Office of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a new document obtained by federal law enforcement officers reveals.

The commercial-grade fireworks-turned-bombs were discovered almost immediately after the “protest” ended last Sunday, prompting federal officials to investigate. What they found is that the makeshift devices were intentionally tweaked to make them deadly, putting the very lives of BLM targets at risk.

“The alert states that approximately 100 to 200 people dressed in dark clothing, backpacks, goggles, and helmets approached the ICE office in Atlanta,” writes Bob Price for Breitbart News, referring to an “activity alert” that was issued by the FBI following the incident. “The subjects reportedly carried shields, bats, and large sticks.”

Some of the fallout from the incident included 20 broken windows and the remnants of “commercial-grade fireworks with nails embedded in the mortar shell,” according to bomb technicians. You can see these embedded nails for yourself in the following image:

The incident in which this all occurred had originally been dubbed as a “Freedom Fighters” event based out of Portland, which quickly spread all the way across the country to Atlanta after organizers called on BLM “activists” from other cities to take a stand in “solidarity.”

Video footage of the incident, which you can watch on Twitter, shows some of these firework bombs going off in front of the Atlanta ICE field office.

Atlanta “protesters” used green lasers to BLIND law enforcement

Some of the “protesters” there also reportedly used green lasers to try to blind and impair law enforcement officers from trying to intervene. They also smashed windows, set fires, and inflicted whatever mayhem they could on the facility.

“This kind of device is clearly designed to maim or injure anyone who might be close when it goes off,” stated an unidentified federal official about the firework bombs, speaking on the condition of anonymity as he is not permitted to speak publicly about this investigation.

Other buildings that incurred damage and destruction include various immigration-related field offices, including an immigration court where immigrants go to receive documents and comply with the laws concerning their presence in the United States.

Federal Protective Services (FPS), along with the FBI and the Atlanta Police Department, are all looking into the matter further as part of a multi-agency investigation. They hope to determine who is responsible and hold them accountable.

Mainstream media still falsely claiming that the “protests” are all “peaceful”

Despite continued violent incidents such as this, the mainstream media, including ABC News, is still falsely claiming that BLM “protesters” are all acting peacefully and with civility, and that all reports of extreme violence and destruction are “fake news.”

In Oakland, California, as another example, where “protesters” vandalized and set fire to a police station, ABC News reported the incident as “peaceful.” After receiving a flood of tweets challenging this false claim, ABC News responded by saying that it was “a peaceful demonstration” that merely “intensified.”

“These people are not protesters, they are terrorists,” wrote one Breitbart News commenter, affirming what President Donald Trump has previously stated about these violent groups being akin to domestic terrorists.

“Use the Insurrection Act to blow them away,” wrote another, offering a slightly different perspective on the situation. “They are not protesters but traitors to the U.S. and deserve terminal sanctions.”

UPDATE: Here’s Some Facts About What’s Going On…and the Constant Contradictions by Our ‘Leaders’

UPDATE:  This ‘scamdemic’ is looking more and more like a tool being used to subdue the masses into begging for world governance and ‘relief’ from ‘the Rona’ – a virus with a 99.8% recovery rate.  Another reason is that ‘Big Pharma’ wants the dollars from vaccine development and sales.  Check these two links out.

Trump was right on Chloroquine.  “Dr. Immanuel cured three hundred fifty coronavirus patients with a 100 percent success rate using a combination of hydroxychloroquine (sixty-year-old anti-viral compound with a track record of safety and effectiveness) zinc (an immune system modulating mineral) and azithromycin (broad-spectrum antibiotic).”

“Dr. Carrie Madej, an Internal Medicine Specialist, warns that the covid-19 vaccine is nothing like traditional vaccines and will be a Trojan Horse to turn human cell lines into patent-able property. The new mRNA vaccines contain DNA-altering technology that instructs human cells to produce properties of a foreign infectious organism. In this case, the vaccine inserts genetic instructions from coronaviruses into human cells, forcing the ribosomes of each cell to create infection-causing spike proteins. This trans-humanist process will cause the immune system to attack the body’s own proteins, forcing B cell antibodies into action.

GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi, Inovio, and Moderna are all in a race to bring this new experimental technology to market, all backed by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.”


Personally, once you read the following, you might, like I do, think the writer lives in Michigan, as our guv, G.Whitmer, has followed this playbook from the get go.

H/T Irish at, The Feral Irishman.

Original posted, here, ‘In the Middle of the Right

So lemme see if I got this straight:

The people making policy that we should (now!) wear masks tell us that they will prevent infections from being passed from one person to another….

These are the people who told us that masks DON’T work, and actively discouraged the wearing of them in the early days of the “Covid-19 Pandemic”….Where they (IF they are effective) might have made a difference by preventing the early cases that led to other infections that led to other infections….

These are the experts that told us that hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine were unsafe drugs, dangerous to take, even though they have been in use safely in other applications in the US since 1955. Who discouraged the use of Remdesivir, even though it has been used as an antiviral drug since 2009 and is a well known drug which can be administered safely.

These are the folks who predicted 22 million deaths, in the US, then revised that downward…to 12M, then to 6,3M, then 2.6M, then 1.2M, then 600,000, then 420,000 ….when the real number is about 145,000…..Pretty big difference. (While no estimate is terribly accurate, being off by a factor of nearly one hundred is an “estimate” that is pretty bad).  And who predicted that hospitals would be overwhelmed as early as March 30….when they never even came close. Who told us we would need hundreds of thousands of additional ventilation assisting machines…when we didn’t even use the ones we had already….These are the folks who told us that the disease began in this country in February…when all evidence (even then!) showed that it was likely here in Novermber of 2019…..who decided that scanning people’s foreheads at airports with an infrared thermometer as they deplaned was an adequate screening in defense against travelers bringing the disease from other countries…no quarantine or other followup….

These are the folks that decided, apparently at random, that 6 feet/2 meters “Social Distancing” (with absolutely zero science or research or evidence that the chosen distance was effective, but simply picked a number) would prevent the transmission of disease (even though masks would not help) and with no regard to airflow or other environmental factors that would move the disease from one person to another….

These are the people who told us that we needed to shelter in place for 2 weeks to “Flatten the Curve”….that led to 90 days of “lockdown”…
Who then allowed the country to reopen, and were then surprised and unprepared when the rate of infection increased greatly once people began to interact again…effectively showing that the first 90 days of lockdown did nothing to stem or otherwise stop the infection, merely delay the increase for 90 days. We, under their advice, wasted the past 90 days….gaining nothing except the destruction of our economy and increased unemployment and economic ruin for a great many of our citizens.

These are the “experts” who told us we could not shop in small stores, but allowed larger retailers, like WalMart and Target and Home Depot to remain open….who told us we could not attend funerals or get our hair cut, could not attend Christian Church services (but allowed Mosques to remain open)…. Who told us that eating at a restaurant 6 feet from other patrons was dangerous, but allowed convenience stores to remain open so we could stand in line 6 feet apart to buy lottery and cigarettes, and allowed car dealerships to operate with absolutely no restrictions because they were “essential”. Who told us that bakeries and clothing stores and shoe stores were dangerous and should be closed, but liquor stores and marijuana dispensaries were “essential”.

These are the “experts” that now tell us that wearing cloth masks will greatly reduce the spread of the Covid-19 virus in our population and threaten us with fines if we don’t wear them (where were they with this information and demands that we wear masks 90 days ago…would that have not prevented many secondary and tertiary infections in our population??)….but fail to make sure that people wear them properly, negating the usefulness of those masks when they are worn on the chin or the upper lip.

I’m thinking that these experts are either incompetent or have another agenda.

If you like Reynolds Wrap as a material for your chapeau, then one might think that the agenda is more important than our economy (or the economy IS the agenda) or that Social Conditioning is more important than public health…. and that actual Public Health is secondary…

I actually prefer my “experts” to show a bit more expertise before I listen to them…..


Coming to a Church Near You….

It’s only a matter of time, and with the recent unchecked criminal events allowed to go on in our country and the corresponding movement to defund the police, I’d be willing to bet it’ll be sooner than later.

From Fox.  Short news blurb; read it.

“Police and military who responded to reports of a shooting at the International Pentecostal Holiness Church headquarters in Zuurbekom near Johannesburg found four people “shot and burned to death in a car” and a security guard shot in another car.”

Emphasis mine.

PSA: Don’t Be a Litterbug!!!

It’s never polite to leave your brass laying around after you shoot, especially when you shoot a lot!

To that end, be considerate and get brass catchers for your rifles and pistols.  Revolvers and bolt gun brass is easily managed – it’s the semi-automatic pistols and rifles that leave the mess!

Here’s a couple of very modestly priced suggestions:

Gloryfire AR Brass Catcher

Graco Pistol Brass Catcher – mounts on your hand, so it works with virtually any semi-automatic pistol.  Not uncomfortable, either!

I’m sure you can get both less expensively on other sites; the links were provided for convenience.

Remember, DON’T leave brass laying around!!!  It’s not polite!
