So, get inside the loop.

Propaganda spin here.

Your answer to said tyranny here.

Guys, I’m here to tell you. I went from zero to 80% autonomous with about $600 and five working days. Figure out how to get that production cost down to even half of that and you have just out OODA’d dotgov by millions of dollars.

Guess what? Your ROI is way shorter.

The possibilities are endless.

Resistance is the Path of Least Resistance

Like Mike said, opportunity:

As for me, I also see opportunity. Personally, I would like to thank the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations for spreading out all this military hardware into the hinterland where, in an emergency, the armed citizenry can get its hands on it without having to trespass on a military base.

Listen to Deacon fellow III. Bob the local deputy will forget to put the lock on the armory, but that really doesn’t matter because his response to you taking it won’t be much of anything as it will likely take them days to figure out that it walked out on a Tuesday when the moon was full.

Imagine the disruption. Imagine the cover up as the local constabulary would be remiss to tell the truth that the suppressed and full auto G36 they got from dotgov up and disappeared.

Macro Manuvers Part II

Wow. Two Iran posts in one day.

From Zerohedge, via Bloomberg headlines.

My key takeaway:

This as Germany, Italy, and now France also call back their Ambassador from Iran.

That’s just special. All this while SB 1867 launches itself into the lexicon of US law with the fanfare of the Lee Greenwood crowd.

Wisdom

Thanks for posting AP:

In fifty words: Granted mobility, security (in the form of denying targets to the enemy), time, and doctrine (the idea to convert every subject to friendliness), victory will rest with the insurgents, for the algebraical factors are in the end decisive, and against them perfections of means and spirit struggle quite in vain.

-T.E. Laurence

 

Political Observations

Not a political blog. Never will be, though I believe that the following will have drastic impact on FREFOR/OPFOR going forward.

A few predictions and opinions:

  • Romney will emerge as the clear Republican lead and get the nomination. This is based on my suspicion that he already has it sown up and this debate cycle with the rest of the crowd is merely theater to show the populace that they do indeed have some kind of say in big party politics.
  • Obama will win in 2012. Not by the same margin as before, but will eek out a victory and spin it as a crystal clear mandate that he is indeed the chosen one who will in the soon to be immortal words of Chris Rock, “Get his real gangster shit on…”.
  • #gunwalker, while horrible and infecting dotgov across the board, will fizzle and be replaced by something just as bad that will also be ignored by 99% of the Fourth Branch of Government.
  • To distract from the #depression, dotgov will launch some kind of offensive on Iran. This will happen in the next 12 months. Whether it will be initiated by the Israelis is of no consequence. The engagement will eventually become a US operation.

Merely opinions. YMMV.

Covert Operations

So, you’re in shape. You can carry your rifle, reloads, med kit, water, food, & shelter through driving snow/rain, up hill (both ways) for twenty miles without shortness of breath.

Ever wonder when you would ever have the chance to actually do this?

Practical application…

How adept are you with observing people, places, and events? How sharp is your ability to observe and report. How detailed and accurate can you be? How good are you at looking just like everyone else?

PT is always a good idea. Mad skills with implements of destruction as well.

However, when it comes to observe & report, where are you in the great ineffable plan? How unobtrusive can you be while still being effective?

Collapse: As in, wait for it.

So go read AP’s latest.

I hear many voices among the cacaphony of Occupy.  What I do not hear are the voices of those who put liberty above all else.  That is a shame, because, were I a betting’ man, I would wager that something is gonna come of this.  Maybe good, maybe bad.

I wish more people on the “FreeFor” side would really and seriously read Mein Kampf.  Scary and unrealistic/realistic Hitler analogies and demonizations aside, one can learn a lot about politics and group dynamics in a democracy from his book, life, and methods.  Hate him if you like, but he was a political genius.

Same with Che, Machiavelli, and Alinsky, to name a few more.

Not a lot of literature from the FreeFor (Team Freedom) perspective on resistance (short of war). So, we take what we can get.

This…

Stop whining about your lack of Constitutional rights and do something. Waiting on the end of the bloody world is only going to get you killed.

I have read Mein Kampf. AP is right about the political ability of history’s biggest villain. Knowledge is indeed power – even woefully politically incorrect knowledge. While you’re at it, get of copy of The Prince and read some of Mao’s stuff. Believe it or not, you will not, all of a sudden like, turn to the darkside for ingesting this stuff.

For all that is holy and sacred, reading this stuff is reading your enemy’s playbook! Take advantage of the fact that it’s out there and get inside their decision cycle!

After you finish this, go spend some quality time with Musashi, Sun Tzu, and especially, John Boyd.

Go forth and DO!

Rallying AP’s meme – #RESIST

A Selection Event

Much has been bantered about recently regarding what FREFOR is not doing in light of the #OWS crowd and their antics.

I mentioned a while back that I had some thoughts on this. It’s taken a while for me to pin them down into something that would resemble my usual ranting and raving. Here goes.

I commented at WRS about where I thought we were in relation to events and tipping points. My opinion today, is exactly where it was when I made that comment on 10/12. I waver. I waver every day about where we are and where we will be 12 month from now.

There, to this date, has not been one single momentous or defining event that would lead FREFOR into taking action.

Why should we? We have no ground to stand on. Ours typically is a reactionary stance that is fueled by outside events seeking to deride our personal liberty. We can harden and strive to Clean Our Hats all we want, but it is the nature of what we face that our response will be reactionary and inside OPFOR’s decision cycle.

Listen, I agree with AP:

Many of these “flaws” exhibited by our society aren’t merely symptoms to be treated.  Trying to treat them is likely as vain as prescribing Motrin to a psych patient with a gun in his mouth.  Likewise, “fixing” many of them would kill the patient.  My father watched a man become locked and crushed between two railroad car couplers.  Crushed and already terminal, he smoked a cigarette on borrowed time.  They called his wife.  He told his family goodbye.  The crew uncoupled the cars, and he died instantly.  Problem solved.  Patient dead.

I maintain that until there is some event or trigger, that we, as FREFOR, will stand fast, prep, & maintain what is left of our liberty.

The tribe must be built, the walls erected, and fortification and defenses readied.

We stand on the edge – there is no doubt to this. It’s how we prosper through the darkness to emerge as the leaders of the new world with it’s new set of rules. Denniner always talks about how we will (and have needed since 2008) to hit the wall. Make no mistake: THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO MOVE FORWARD. Without a systemic collapse or failure, we will be doomed to slide ever so slightly downward as a society year after year as tyranny creeps in further.
