Sparks31 at Idaho PatCon!


The Planning Committee for the 2015 Idaho PatCon in July has announced that Sparks31 will be in attendance!  If you have radio/Comms questions, I urge you to attend the PatCon and get your answers.  Opportunities to meet experts like Sparks face-to-face will become nearly impossible once SHTF.

I don't know about you - but I'm going to ask him to sign my copy of Grid Down.

If you don't have Grid Down yet - here are the links:

Hard Copy here.  eBook (PDF) copy here.

Here's the announcement from the Planning Committee.

If you live west of the Mississippi, I encourage you to find a way to join us in July.  Take your vacation.  There are many outdoor activities for the entire family in the area, including water sports on the lake.  Bring your ATVs, trail bikes, fishing gear, hiking/camping gear, shooting gear - we are planning one heck of a week!  You'll meet great people, share the company of serious Patriots, and have many opportunities for some great family R&R.

MVT: AAR CTT/Mobility Texas Feb 2015


An AAR from Max's Texas class.

Instructional Break Contact Video: “Contact Front!”

When you seek training, I would suggest you find a trainer who trains for a living - not part-time on the occasional weekend or online in a chat room.  If you are serious about prevailing against Evil and keeping your women safe and un-raped, then you'd better be serious when you spend your hard-earned dollars and limited time with a trainer.

Max is the real deal.  He will help you learn to prevail.  Wherever you are in your training progression, Max can help you get to the next level, if you are willing to put in the work.

All you have to do is show up and give it 100%.

This ain't no game.  There will be a simple Pass/Fail test, graded by Enemies of Liberty.

Liberty or Death.

III 300 Workout

   THE "ORIGINAL" 300 WORKOUT  

All exercises are done without scheduled rest between moves.



  1. PULLUPS (25 reps)  


Grab the pull-up bar with an overhand grip that's slightly wider than shoulder width apart, and hang at arm's length. Pull your chest to the bar, pause, and then lower your body back to the starting position.



  2. DEADLIFTS WITH 135 LBS. (50 reps) 

Load the barbell and roll it against your shins. Bend at your hips and knees and grab the bar with an overhand grip, your hands just beyond shoulder width. Without allowing your lower back to round, pull your torso back and up, thrust your hips forward, and stand up with the barbell. Squeeze your glutes as you perform the movement. Lower the bar to the floor, keeping it as close to your body as possible.

  3. PUSHUPS (50 reps)  


Get down on all fours and place your hands on the floor so that they're slightly wider than and in line with your shoulders. Lower your body until your chest nearly touches the floor. Pause at the bottom, and then push yourself back to the starting position as quickly as possible.


  4. 24-INCH BOX JUMPS (50 reps)  

Stand in front of a sturdy, secure box that's high enough so that you have to jump with great effort in order to land on top of it. Your feet should be shoulder-width apart. Dip your knees. Jump up onto the box with a soft landing. Step down and reset your feet.


  5. FLOOR WIPERS
 (50 reps)  

Holding a 135-pound loaded bar above your chest, bring your feet up together to the left plate, down to the middle, and up to the right plate before putting them down in the middle. That's one repetition.



  6. SINGLE-ARM CLEAN-AND-PRESS WITH 36-LBS. KETTLEBELL (50 reps) 

Stand shoulder-width apart with a kettlebell between your feet. Bend at the knees and grab the kettlebell with an overhand grip. Drive your hips and legs through the floor to bring the kettlebell up to your chest (note: your arm should be tucked in close to your body with the kettlebell resting on the outside of your forearm.) Push overhead before lowering it to the ground in a controlled movement.

That's one rep. Make sure it touches the ground before each rep. Perform 25 reps per arm.



  7. PULLUPS (25 reps)  


Grab the pull-up bar with an overhand grip that's slightly wider than shoulder width apart, and hang at arm's length. Pull your chest to the bar, pause, and then lower your body back to the starting position.

Waco


An ally reminded me that Waco began on this date, twenty-two years ago.

To date, not one of those murderous bastards responsible for the deaths of the Davidians has been held to account.  In fact, many have climbed to very high places in our government.

To borrow a bit of counsel from our Jewish friends - Never Forget.

The Evil that is coming has been on the march for decades - indeed, centuries.  When Go Time is upon us, there are many Evils that must be set right.

Think about the Davidians today, and over the next 7 weeks.

When you go to the Green, remember them.

National III Organizational Template Suggestion


I use counties as AOs.  Personally, I think every county should have its own III organizational structure, with alliances to surrounding counties.  Yes, there are variables.  For instance, my AO does not end at the county line, because threats will not respect mere lines on a map.  From a pragmatic perspective, I have concentric circles on a map that delineate various areas of my responsibility.  For instance - I have a circle drawn on a map around my house at 400 miles in all directions - a respectable reflection of how far the average (newer/fuel efficient) car can travel on a full tank of fuel.  I have another concentric circle at about 1/2 that distance - a marker that roughly denotes Bingo Fuel from my home.  At this line I need to turn around and head home, or I will run out of gas (unless I have some means to re-fuel.)  My personal maps have many more lines, circles and sticky notes - but those are not really for public consumption.

Using county lines for demarcation is not a clean and precise system - but it is practical and functional for organizational purposes.  Obviously there are many areas where an AO will encompass more than one county, or bits of several counties.  This applies especially in and near major metropolitan areas.  But these realities do not complicate the overall organizational system - it simply means Patriots in counties that make up functional AOs either decide (amongst themselves) to create a single operational entity, or those entities must work closely together.

For instance: Spokane Washington is at the eastern edge of northern Washington State.  Immediately on the other side of the state line is Kootenai County, Idaho.  Many people living in Kootenai have a direct and personal interest in what happens in Spokane when SHTF.  They also have their own modestly-sized city with which to contend - Coeur d'Alene.  My suggestion is that every III Patriot work to stand-up an organizational infrastructure in his county of residence and consider that piece of land to be his personal AO.  Then, if you happen to live in an AO that has direct concerns on your borders, such as Kootenai and Spokane, liaise with the III organizational infrastructure on your borders.

Within your county you can organize your allies in any manner you see fit.  If you are a relatively rural county with a few small towns sprinkled here and there, perhaps you assign each to a member of your team, making it his AoR.  Perhaps your team chooses to operate on a .mil or similar rank system - all those details are for each Patriot and team to work out for themselves.

But here is the reason it is important to actually stand-up some sort of functional organizational infrastructure: In the event of SHTF/WRoL, there will be Patriots like me who travel, at least regionally, for Intel purposes, to lend aid and support where possible, to help coordinate supply runs and other logistical needs.  When a Patriot from outside of your AO arrives, in order to be of any utilitarian value to you and your team, he will need to make quick and covert contact with all of your Leaderless Resistance Leaders.  In order for you to make use of whatever aid & support he is able to provide, you will need infrastructure to ensure that widgets and supplies get where they need to be. You will need to provide your out-of-town ally with a safe place to be, a safe place to phone home, a safe place to heal (perhaps).

All of those needs are satisfied by the mundane, boring infrastructure that you should be setting up now, while you can.

The only cavalry coming is you and me.  Let's make certain we can find one another when we must, but also that 3B gets where needed in an efficient manner.

Begin by standing up infrastructure in your county.  Repeat in neighboring counties as necessary.

Here's a pretty good interactive map of Counties, brought to you by your tax dollars.  At the lower-right corner of the map you'll see a red floating banner - click it.  Then you can drill down to your area of interest.  Do not forget hard copies - of sufficient size and detail to be useful.  Here's just one link.

How can you connect (initial contact) with other Patriots in your AO/Region?  Start at the III Society - then get together offline.  We all have work to do, and we are all behind schedule.

Your Combatives Reality


I know many of you think your Combatives skillset is sufficient.  Some of you are correct.

Most of you are mistaken.  If you don't think you are going to have to share punches and kicks with Bad Guys in this counter-revolution in the name of Liberty, you are not being realistic.

Too many of you put way too much faith in that steel (or Tupperware ;) you carry.

The guy above is the Mayor of Jerusalem.  I don't think I need to explain the caliber of his security detail.  Shin Bet and Mossad are among the best in the world in many martial skills - and I can tell you from personal experience, tangling with any of those folks will test every martial skill you've got as well as your martial spirit.  If you have an ounce of quit in you, it will surface in a ruckus with a Shin Bet or Mossad pro.  One day I may tell a few of you about a former Mossad lass who taught me a few lessons in Colombia.

The Mayor of Jerusalem and his high-quality team are always on alert - and a single Palestinian with a knife was able to breach the cone.  The Mayor had to defend himself as his security detail clicked into action.

If he has to be prepared to personally handle a surprise blade attack by a Bad Guy, while at the center of concentric rings of security by the professionals who have his back, you'd better believe you need to be ready for the same.

Shoot.  Move.  Communicate.  Resist.

I hope you read between the lines and understand just how important it is to learn how to break a bastard with your hands - or at least stay alive long enough to deploy your weapon.

Combatives matter.

Patriots on the Couch

Some people in our community are full of shit.  Full Stop.

Many are sincere - serious as a heart attack.  These men and women will go to the Green when it is time.  If you are sincere about going to the Green, please stop procrastinating and get yourself some more training.  Max can teach you the basics if you are an absolute cherry, and he can take you to high-speed, low-drag levels of excellence as your progression warrants.  Here's his 2015 training schedule.  Sparks can get you the same level of training in Comms.  Here's his schedule.

But there remains another portion of our community, a much larger portion, who are also as serious as a heart attack about contributing to this fight for Liberty.  And I would contend they are every single bit as important as those men and women who will go to the Green - they are the Auxiliary.

These are the men and women who will stand as aegis for the Patriots in Harm's Way.  They are the men and women who will hide us, feed us, clothe us, heal us, give us Intel, and look after our families when we are away.  These are the men and women who will, hopefully, one day write the history of how Liberty was preserved on Planet Earth for just a bit longer.

Max and others are helping teach the tip of the spear.

In my opinion, and it is an opinion shared by many of my allies, not enough is being done on a large-scale to help prepare the Auxiliary for what Evil this way comes.  You can expect the III Society and other allies to begin focusing considerable energy and resources on helping our Auxiliary get prepared - in knowledge and materiel.

Resources: This is a big issue for me, and I have mentioned it many times.  I will keep hammering it until we achieve some level of parity with the Enemies of Liberty.  The Left - those bastards who want you DEAD - are very well financed, with Soros and Bloomberg money, just as 2 examples.

Where are our benefactors - not those of you who often help when and where you can - I mean, where is our Beck, our Koch, our pipelines of real resources so we can actually make a run at securing Liberty?

If you have any suggestions regarding how we bring a pipeline online, I am all ears.

As for the Auxiliary - speak up.  Let us know what you need, what you want, so we can pre-position supplies and teach skills you will need in our imminent future.

Personally - I have no time and ZERO patience for circle-jerkers.  Liberty was NEVER handed to anyone - except the 75% or so of American Colonists who were able to enjoy Liberty because of the sweat, blood, tears, lives and Sacred Honor of the III Percent who went to the Green and that small percentage of Auxiliary who supported them.

Let's get to work.

April 19


April 19th has a history in America.

Patriots are proud of 1775.

1993 was a turning point in America.

1995 was an outrage for other reasons.

April 19, 2015 is coming fast, and Enemies of Liberty are already lining-up the hammers to swing at us all in just under two months.  The Enemies of Liberty have all the resources, including the microphones. They intend to do us harm.

Have you considered how you intend to respond this year?  Are you going to lie back and think of England?  Are you going to merely grumble online and be grumpy around the house and family because you are being maligned by your ideological enemies - enemies who intend and work every single day of their miserable fucking lives to eradicate all you hold dear?

No - it is not yet time to shoot the bastards.

Nor is it time to sit and pop Xanax while merely pounding the keyboard.

We have serious Patriots all across America.  Some of you have one serious buddy.  Some have two or three.  Some of you have more, or militia.  I am not going to tell you what to do on April 19.  That isn't my place.  But I am going to tell you this: DO FUCKING SOMETHING.  DO FUCKING SOMETHING in every state, in every county.

Do SOMETHING that lets the Enemies of Liberty know you are NOT responsible for Timothy McVeigh.  Do SOMETHING that tells the world you ARE John Parker, NOT some some victim who will EVER be Waco'd.  Do SOMETHING that makes it clear to the world you will NEVER bend knee and lick the hand that offers to feed you.

You MUST do SOMETHING that telegraphs to the world you mean it when you say Liberty or Death.

You have to decide what that SOMETHING will be.

While you consider your course in life, while you consider what that SOMETHING may be, read and consider the plan being offered by CA & Co., here.

Freeman or Slave/Subject.  The choice is yours.

If you choose Slave/Subject - do us all a favor and eat a bullet.

III Chaplain at Maine State Senate


Prepping Preacher was invited to open the State Senate.  His comments below.

February 24th, 2015
127th Maine Senate
Session opened: 10:00AM

(Recognition of important persons and general declaration of appreciation for my invitation; gratuitous joke about Baptist preachers being long-winded and my assurance to act contrary to the norm.)

"So, to my point today.  In keeping with the expectation of a non-sectarian address, let me point out then from our own State's Constitutional Preamble the position of our State's founding fathers and authors of the founding documents this quote, "...  of the goodness the Sovereign Ruler of the Universe.."  Expressing just a few phrases beyond the continued need for His aid and guidance not just for our State's founding but for it's continuance.

Now, allow me to suggest and encourage this body to emulate the character of our Sovereign Ruler and God as it applies to this body's function.  As His Hand was publicly recognized, so let me very briefly and humbly present that while His Sovereignty does indeed continue unbroken even until now and beyond, He also allows men free course to choose and to live as each may determine.  And that is not inconsistent with His Purpose.

Even with regard to His greatest Provision for His creation - that being Salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ by faith - He forces none to accept that high and Holy sacrifice.  Rather, while being Sovereign over the affairs of men, He does not micro-manage any one particular person nor group.

Freedom of that choice and action as well as all others in this life is left to the individual.

Read the rest, here.

Being a Natural Law Violating F*cktard is a CHOICE

Good Communists & Good LEO are becoming synonymous
There is a common phrase thrown around by intellectual midgets on many "Patriot" blogs: Your skin color is your uniform.

I can't be bothered to argue down to that level of Stupid.  In all honesty, I don't think I could even try without permanently fouling my synapse-firing widgets.  But this post isn't about the brain-damaged Souls who like to blame their own inabilities to navigate the world on the color of some other person's skin.

This is a post motivated by a commentor who dropped by recently and took exception to his perception that this blog, and me in particular, are anti-LEO.  Someone sent him here, apparently commending this blog to him as a resource.  I think someone was having fun with him - but that's another story.  He commented here.  Murphy - I am not mocking you - you simply wandered through the looking glass.

All snark aside: I am not anti-LEO.  I am anti-asshole.  Not every man and woman who wears a badge and gun for a living is an asshole.  I know this to be fact, because I have met a few.  Do I think they would absolutely refuse to enforce unconstitutional laws at all times?  Nope.  Do I think they use as much discretion as they find possible, when they are able?  Yep.  Would I prefer they refuse to enforce any and every unconstitutional law?  Of course.  But I am a realist.  I'll take what I can get until the paradigm changes.  I am simply one man among many who are working to change that paradigm.

"Defending the Natural Rights of fellow Citizens" isn't really the mandate of LEO in America any longer, is it?  For every LEO that I personally would consider a fellow traveler, I shudder to think how many other LEO stack charges on people, even lie to stack charges on people.  How many find it acceptable to flashbang a baby in a crib?  How many share the Gabe Suarez worldview?  And every man and woman wearing a badge and gun who remains silent while their fellow LEO behave that way can not, under any circumstances, be put into the fellow traveler category.  It is not enough to handle such bad actors "in-house".  For any decent Human Being currently wearing a badge & gun - unless you are willing to slap cuffs on your fellow LEO when they break a law for which you would arrest a civilian - you are part of the problem.  You are guilty.

Until recently I had an ally who self-identified as LEO.  I let him closer than I let most people.  One day he began to reveal his true nature behind the facade he presented to the public.  He revealed himself to be simply another taxpayer-funded, Thin Blue Line defending, back-stabbing PoS who in the Us-vs-Them reality in which we live, chose to be Them.  One excises such cancers, ruthlessly.

He has been excised.

Extirpate - it is a Lifestyle.

Bottom Line: Do not judge any individual based solely upon any factor that is beyond his control.

Your behavior is your identifier.

Your skin is never your uniform.

Your uniform is your uniform.  The uniform you put on every day is a choice.

If you are currently wearing a badge & gun for a living, prove to us that we shouldn't immediately IFF you based on that uniform in our current reality.

The time is coming when even the most reasonable Americans will take IFF decisions through a scope, without a conversation.  And they will not take responsibility for your failure to have proven yourself a fellow traveler when you were able to do so.  That's on you.

New Website: Rightful Liberty Report


We are proud to announce the launch of a new website for the Liberty Movement: Rightful Liberty Report.

www.RightfulLibertyReport.com

We have launched a companion site in blog format where Patriots can discuss particular stories. You'll see a [Discuss] link next to select stories that will take you to the blog for comments.

Bloggers: We could use your help spreading the word about the new site.  I hope you'll consider a post as well as adding us to your blogroll.

Editorial Focus: Stories relevant to the Liberty Movement will be featured.  No weather reports, celebrity goofs, or extraneous bread & circuses stories.  Politics matter to the Patriot and will be covered from the perspective of Lexington Green.  Stories from Leftist Useful Idiots will be featured as warranted to keep everyone informed of their latest propaganda and lines of attack.

Fair Warning: This site will be far more time-intensive than even a blog, in order to keep current.  It will need to be updated several times each day, and of course as there is breaking news.  That means we will need help.  We will need the help of III Patriots who can send us relevant links to news stories that deserve to be read by your fellow Patriots.  So as you go through your daily reading lists, please send us a link if you think a story is important to Liberty.  And don' take it personally if your submissions don't always get linked.  Not every story will make the editorial cut, and many stories will be featured on several outlets, and we'll only be linking one.  Let's keep the conspiracy stuff limited - conspiracies exist, but not every event is the byproduct of a grand scheme.

Patriot bloggers & Businesses: If you think your blog should be included, drop us a note.  (Link is on the page)  If you own a Patriot/Liberty business and would like to be considered for a link, also drop us a note.

III Comms: KX1 for your AO


You need a comprehensive Comms infrastructure.  I know most of you have voice comms covered.

Consider the value, under certain circumstances, of having particular members of your Tribe outfitted with radios like the Elecraft KX1.  This little radio is CW only.  It lends itself to comms duties that need to be a bit more sneaky-sneaky.

Here's the link to the gear.  Here's a link to the KX3 - a sneaky-sneaky radio with much more capability.

Think about it.  If you think something will help you and your Tribe not only survive, but prevail, and reduce the incidences of relocation, boots-on-necks, rapes and disappearings - get those widgets now, while your FRNs still have some utility beyond the outhouse.  On the day that the camel's back snaps - and it will happen suddenly, with little or no warning - your ability to use PayPal to get widgets overnighted to your house will be nil.

III Craftsman


We chose the Spartan Helm as the logo for the combatives side of the new studio.  It conveys the right message, and it ties-in with our other III work.  Bill has been doing some excellent work with the helm, and he came up with this key chain.  We'll be selling them in the studio for our students, and III Patriots can order them directly from Bill.

You know what the helm represents - it doesn't need any sales pitch from me.

You can see the quality of Bill's product - that doesn't need my help either.  It is awesome in design and finish.  And it is functional, too - more than just a place for keys.  I'll let Bill explain that for you.

Drop by his shop and order one (or 10 - for your Patriot friends), and while you are there, explore his full line of offerings.

Fear


Fear is a bitch.  It comes in many forms.  It can sneak up on you, or it can telegraph itself.  Fear of failure strikes many people.  Fear of pain can make most people change their mind about doing X. Fear of death, believe it or not, is often less stark than many other fears, such as failing to protect one's children or spouse.  Fear, and the related stress that comes with it, can kill you as dead as any bullet.

When one permits fear to prevent doing what is necessary, fear wins - as do your enemies.  Many of you have faced real fear on the battlefield in the military.  For many of you, I suspect it will be easier to go to the Green when the time comes than it is to sit in this limbo we are all enduring now.  Why? Because you have been there before, and while it may still scare the hell out of you when bullets begin flying your way again- you've probably conditioned yourself to the point that you may suffer the fear, but not inaction.

Most people in the Liberty Movement have never had anyone shooting at them in anger.  Few know what it is like to have angry men (or worse - calm professionals) try to gut you or break you at buckle-to-buckle range.  You will probably not face your most intense fear - terror - at a convenient time or place.

One can pontificate ad nauseum on how to overcome fears.  You can read books, listen to lectures, and try to convince yourself  'it is all in your head'.  Fear isn't just in your head - real fear twists your guts.  Let me give you my short & sweet 2 cents on the topic, based on a life in the martial arts and using those skills professionally at various times in my mis-spent youth: You can't rationalize or reason your way through fear.  You can't do anything but meet it head-on, then find whatever mechanism lies within you to push through the worst byproduct of fear - inaction, or as Max calls it, the freeze - and go to work.

I can't tell you how many seriously proficient martial artists I have known in my life who could whip most people on the mat on any given day, yet froze when challenged outside the dojo.  I have seen it too many times.  These are people who are bigger, stronger, faster, and physically tougher than most. These are people who know - intimately - what it feels like to get an eye swelled shut or a nose turned into a crimson gusher.  Yet outside of 'their element', fear won.

If you fear getting hit in the face, go to a dojo or boxing gym and train.  You'll get hit in the face, and slowly that fear will fall aside as a paralyzing fear.  If you are afraid of being choked-out - get your choke on and work past it.  I can't tell you how to prepare for that granddaddy mutha that will come at some point so that you won't suffer horrible consequences.  All I can say is get used to facing fears, get used to the process of facing fears - so that when that humdinger gets in your grille, you'll at least have a chance.  Do not let the fear of fear prevent you from tackling the issue now, when the stakes are lower.

Just please do not lie to yourself and assume you'll not be afraid.  Fear is an equal opportunity S.O.B. and there is no shame in admitting that it is real, and must be handled.

Wait - What???


We have to win with reason, logic and ideas!

Wait - WTF?

No, we don't.

Why must I take the time or energy to educate the plurality of the people sharing my world that it is wrong for them to take my stuff by force or threat of force?  Why do silly people insist I must use only my words to end predations upon me that are usually not manifest with a gun in my face?  You tax my bread from hundreds or thousands of miles away and think my only recourse is my words?

Sorry.  I was taught at a young age how to deal with parasites - and 'coexistence' wasn't even in the top ten most effective options.

Examine that which you are willing to tolerate, folks.

Just stop it...

Every one of those scurrying fucktards is an embarrassment - I demand we hold a meeting and revoke their 'American Citizen' cards.

Patriot Calendar & Thoughts


I've looked, and can't find any central repository of upcoming events that should/may be of interest to Patriots.

So, Item One: If you have an upcoming event in your AO or greater AO that either has national scope, or is relevant to Patriots on at least a county-level, send it along and I'll create a dedicated page so we can all have an idea what is happening across the country.

Item Two: I do not have time to devote to keeping such a project going, though I think it is important for us all.  So, any current bloggers or Patriots who want to undertake the responsibility, let me know and I'll help you get set up.

Item Three: I think it is important for Patriots to build a network *beyond* our secret squirrel SHTF Doomsday smoke signal protocols - something less intense and less formal, yet with real potential for keeping us in contact.  I don't recommend re-inventing the wheel.

What are your thoughts about using the current network of gun shows across the country as a place where local and regional Patriots can get together, either with a booth or simply "Meet at the hot dog wagon at 0900"?  Patriots may decide to fly III IFF to help build awareness in a not-so-much-in-your-face manner, or not. Once in a while a booth could be set up and Patriots could hand out free lists of III/Liberty sites. You get the idea.  If we decide to do such a thing either nationally, or regionally, there should be some structure so it isn't the same few guys getting together all the time, while others watch football or take care of Honey-Do lists.

Thoughts?

III Bloggers


This is for III Patriots who have blogged in the past and may have drifted away from the work, and for those Patriots who have dared to break cover by commenting on various Liberty blogs - consider returning to the work of blogging, or starting a blog.

This blogging work is not glamorous. It is real work. It raises your profile to the Enemies of Liberty. It sucks at times. But the value to the Liberty Movement is immeasurable.  Every single Patriot who accepts the burden of standing and adding his or her voice to the discussion is doing serious work against tyranny.  Don't think you are articulate enough? That isn't the measure. What matters is the number of people willing to stand and add to the volume of the Liberty conversation.

Start pecking at your keyboard - again or for the first time.

You can do it.  We need you to do it.

Think about it.
