Do Not Fear

Watch what is going on in the world so you can plan and act to protect those God has entrusted us with. That is why he gave us the capability to understand and plan, however, DO NOT FEAR.

He is in control, what is happening is in accordance with His plan and no matter what we will have eternal life in His house and with Him.

Be alert, get prepared, fight the good fight!

John Lovell Of WPS: Silent NO LONGER

John Lovell of the Warrior Poet Society shares why we can stay silent no longer, why we need to resist and the costs of doing so. It is ten minutes well worth watching:

Resistance – DeSantis Calls For Creation of State Militia

Last week Florida Governor Ron DeSantis proposed spending an additional $100 million on Florida’s military and defense. The majority of that funding would go towards the Florida National Guard. The funding would add three new National Guard Armories and provide needed maintenance for existing armories. The most controversial aspect of this proposal would provide $35 million to (re)create the Florida State Guard.

The State Guard would be separate from the National Guard and would not fall under the control or influence of the Federal government. State Guard troops could not be called up for national service. In the governor’s own words this force would:

“not [be] encumbered by the federal government,” DeSantis said in a press conference. He said the civilian force would give him “the flexibility and the ability needed to respond to events in our state in the most effective way possible.”

Immediately, The Beast’s propaganda arm (the so-called new media) lost their collective minds and began screeching from the balconies:

WOW: GOP Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis wants to form a personal militia like the “political” leaders in Iraq have. It would be a militia that only answers to him. This is the beginning of a “Red Army” as the GOP prepares for war. Literally.

The fact is that 22 other states, including “deep blue,” communist states like New York, Washington and California, already have such organizations as does US territory Puerto Rico:

Alaska (Alaska State Defense Force, Alaska Naval Militia)
California (California State Military Reserve, California State Military Reserve Naval Support Command)
Connecticut (Connecticut State Militia)
Georgia (Georgia State Defense Force)
Indiana (Indiana Guard Reserve)
Louisiana (Louisiana State Guard)
Maryland (Maryland Defense Force)
Massachusetts (Massachusetts State Defense Force)
Michigan (Michigan Volunteer Defense Force)
Mississippi (Mississippi State Guard)
Missouri (Missouri State Defense Force)
New Mexico (New Mexico State Defense Force)
New York (New York Guard, New York Naval Militia)
Ohio (Ohio Military Reserve, Ohio Naval Militia)
Puerto Rico (Puerto Rico State Guard)
South Carolina (South Carolina State Guard, South Carolina Naval Militia)
Tennessee (Tennessee State Guard)
Texas (Texas State Guard, Texas State Guard Maritime Regiment)
Vermont (Vermont State Guard)
Virginia (Virginia Defense Force)
Washington (Washington State Guard)

Additionally, Florida had a State Guard up until 1947 when it was disbanded for a variety of reasons including budget.

While this is all quite normal and not out of the ordinary in any way. I still recognize Governor DeSantis standing up to federal overreach and establishing an alternative force in the state of Florida. This could become the blueprint for other states (looking at you Oklahoma) to limit federal overreach and mandates related to the National Guard.

Resistance Update – Oklahoma National Guard

A few weeks ago I published a post about the Governor of Oklahoma standing up to the vaccine mandate issued by the Pentagon, Resistance – Oklahoma National Guard. The Pentagon has responded.

They have officially denied Governor Stitt’s request to rescind the mandate and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin also threatened individual Guard members with loss of pay and credit for time served. If members are not fully vaccinated they will not get credit for time served or for training. They will be marked as absent without cause and will not be paid or credited for time spent on duty or in training.

Now we wait and see how the governor responds to this threat.

Be alert, get prepared, fight the good fight!

God bless and God save the Republic.

Oh, and welcome to the Resistance.

This Pivotal Moment

The Beast, that collection of un-elected bankers, bureaucrats, technocrats and their pet politicians who have taken over this country are hell bent on destroying it and crushing true American Patriots in order to remake the nation to meet their own objectives. The world as a whole has their own versions of these usurpers. This video makes the case that the vaccine passport could easily become and enforcement mechanism for the same sort of social media scoring currently being employed in China.

I think this video is worth the 17 minutes of your time to help you understand the risks of the vax passport and how it could easily be used to eliminate freedom and liberty:

Make A List And Check It Twice…

No, sweetie this is not about Santa’s list. Nor does it have anything to do with Christmas. This is about resistance.

Time and again I hear of folks on the Left, those siding with the current ruling Junta, talk of “making list of people; people who supported Trump, people who oppose teaching Critical Race Theory (CRT) or gender fluidity, etc. Basically, anyone who don’t toe the line should be on a list. Why would they need a list unless they plan something nefarious for those they would place on the list? Some of the plans that have mentioned out loud include reeducation camps, having their children removed, being denied healthcare, facing higher taxes, and even violent attack or murder.

The latest news of enemy list making comes out of Scottsdale, Arizona where a leftist school board president was compiling lists of parents who opposed his leftist plans for indoctrinating their children. He not only collected names of the opposition he began compiling dossiers on them including Personally Identifiable Information (PII) such as Social Security Numbers, addresses, and marital status. He also began stalking and spying on them taking photos of them and their children.

Fellow blogger Divemedic described the activities of the man and his parents this way:

Local apparatchiks are doing what communists always do- they are making lists of the enemies of communism so, when they are finally let off the chain, they know who to target.

There is also a link in there if you are unfamiliar with the situation.

Divemedic goes on to encourage members of The Resistance to begin making thier own lists:

Keep your own lists. Know who the enemy is before things get sporty.

As abhorrent as the idea may seem, we need to be doing exactly this. This is part of what Sam Culper of Forward Observer refers to as an area study. Which is, in essence, increasing your understanding of the threats, challenges and opportunities in your area. Why would we want to do this? In Sam’s own words it is to:

Increase your situational understanding, make better decisions, and reduce your uncertainty about the future.

Sam and his company teach classes on how to prepare an area study and they even have a video on the subject posted on YouTubes:

I encourage you to watch the video or sign up for a class and begin your own area study.

Resistance – Oroville, California

In a 6-1 vote the northern California city of Oroville has declared itself a sanctuary city from state and Federal government overreach. Modeled on declaration in Beast controlled San Francisco passed to block executive orders by President Trump, the city will not enforce “any executive orders issued by the state of California or by the United States federal government that are overreaching or clearly violate our constitutionally protected rights.

There was concern in passing the resolution that the city could lose some of all of the Federal funding it receives. City attorney, Scott Huber, said that would be very unlikely especially since no Federal funding has yet been denied to cities and states who have declared themselves “sanctuary” with regard to Federal immigration laws.

It is heartening to see The Resistance gaining strength but there is a tremendous amount of work to be done to win our nation back.

Resistance – Oklahoma National Guard

Here is an interesting situation that could define the course of the nation moving forward.

The Governor of Oklahoma Kevin Stitt (R) removed the state’s adjutant general, who had directed troops to comply with the Pentagon’s vaccine mandate. He then replaced him with a new commanding general who issued an order allowing guard to skip the vaccine no repercussions unless they are put on Federal duty.

So, we have an interesting situation. The National Guard reports to the state governors unless they are called up for Federal duty and are acting within the orders of their senior commanders to skip the vaccine. Punishing troops for following lawful order by superior officers could be a very sticky and dangerous legal precedent. One could also argue that un-vaxed troops do not meet the requirements for Federal duty and cannot, therefore, be activated or forced to be vaxed. I am not an attorney, I am definitely not a expert in military legal matters nor did I stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

However, there must be some validity to these arguments because one defense department insider was quoted as threatening stating:

…if the Oklahoma National Guard doesn’t comply with COVID vaccine requirements, they will no longer be “maintaining national recognition,” thus, state will no longer have a Nat Guard, but rather a militia…

Several states including Texas already maintain a state militia separate from the state’s National Guard units, however, funding will become an interesting question should the Oklahoma National Guard be excluded from the National Guard. The federal government foots the entire bill for Guard units when they are called to active, Federal duty. If the state governor activates them for an operation, the state foots the bill. However, peacetime training and equipment costs are split between the state and Federal levels. Is Oklahoma prepared to foot the entire bill? Would the Junta-backed Pentagon try and take possession of planes, tanks, weapons and other equipment provided to the Guard units? What would happen if they tried?

This is a very interesting act of resistance…and we’ll keep an eye out for additional updates.

Be alert, get prepared, fight the good fight!

God bless and God save the Republic.

Oh, and welcome to the Resistance.

Paradigm Shift – Awareness

Normalcy bias is one of the most disastrous of human mental traits in a dangerous situation. Normalcy bias leaves people sitting in their seats during an active shooter situation because that just has to be a car backfiring or a movie right? Normalcy bias means people continue to walk towards a burning World Trade Center until it begins to crumble. Normalcy bias lured yours truly into complacency until it was too late to do much towards saving many of our possessions during a flood. Normalcy bias probably kept most Germans, even Jewish Germans, from seeing what was to come about under NAZI rule.

Like 1930’s Germany, we are in a time when normalcy bias could cost us our way of life and possibly millions of lives.

The current mess we find ourselves in is confusing and makes no sense, while we operate under a normalcy bias that says it is just politics as usual in the good ole’ US of A. However, if we remove the veil of normalcy bias and look at the current situation under a different paradigm, it may begin to make a little more sense. It has for me.

As author, war correspondent, and former Green Beret Michael Yon states:

“We must adjust our collective paradigm until we are no longer surprised, and can predict what The Beast will do next. Because either we beat The Beast, or it will kill us.”

(Note: I like his term for those currently running our nation, The Beast, and I will likely steal it from him but please don’t tell him as I am sure he could kick my tail up and down the block without breaking a sweat.)

If you change your point of view and accept that The Beast, that collection of un-elected bankers, bureaucrats, technocrats and their pet politicians who have taken over this country are hell bent on destroying it and crushing true American Patriots in order to remake the nation to meet their own objectives, things begin to make more sense. If we adjust the paradigm and things suddenly begin to make more sense then it is probable that the new paradigm is correct.

“Keep adjusting your world view until you no longer are surprised like, “This has nothing to do with health. The Beast is using information warfare to destroy our military. And more. Defund the Police. Is a hostile takeover. Opening the borders is a hostile takeover. Breaking the economy is a hostile takeover. The Beast is setting conditions for authentic genocide.”

“If you try my current paradigm for just a week, you be unsurprised at ships off the coast unable to unload, [and] forced jabs with untested chemicals into children’s arms.

-Michael Yon

The consequences for the US if we continue to be blinded by normalcy bias are dire. We will lose our nation and the founding principles of justice and liberty will also be lost. More than that, those who do not agree with, or fit in with The Beast’s new vision of America will likely find themselves the victims of yet another “Final Solution.”

Re-read this quote:

“We must adjust our collective paradigm until we are no longer surprised, and can predict what The Beast will do next. Because either we beat The Beast, or it will kill us.”

…and this one:

The Beast is setting conditions for authentic genocide.”

If we do not act, if we do not change our thinking we will probably not live long to regret it…more importantly, neither will our children.

Be alert, get prepared, fight the good fight!

God bless and God save the Republic.

Stand Up And Resist, Another Point Of View

A few days ago I reviewed how I believe we should be resisting the tyrants who have stolen our country in my post What Does Resistance Look Like?.

Today I would like to share some snippets from a similar article posted on The American Spectator titled It’s About the Culture War, Stupid: Enlist as a Culture Warrior. The subtitle of the article was “Enough already! Backing down is for losers” and I have to say that I like that so much you might see it here in the future.

The author does an amazing job of encouraging American Patriots to stand up and resist the leftist mob:

If only conservative men would man up, conservative women would woman up, and we all would just stuff it right back in their faces. That’s all it takes. The War on Culture must begin — yesterday. We have the numbers, need the guts.

He goes on and explains that we should not shrink down and apologize for our beliefs:

When MSNBC and CNN call a politician a “racist” for opposing Critical Race Theory, the response should not be: “Well, uh, I’m, c’mon, I’m not really a racist, like, really, you shouldn’t say that about me.”

That is not the answer. Rather the answer should be: “Stuff it! You are the racist!”

While I applaud the tone and intent of the article I do have one criticism and warning. The author make it seem like if we all just start standing up we will win the country back and it will all be rainbows and roses. He paints the opposition forces as mere paper figures:

Conservatives are intimidated by Whoopie Goldberg? By Joy Behar? By a Twitter mob? By Joy Reid? By Nicolle Wallace?

These people are paper. Dust. They are nothing — here today, gone tomorrow. Keith Olbermann?  Ed Schultz? Chris Matthews? Dylan Ratigan? Dust in the wind.

This is absolutely not the case. While they may not be as powerful as some of us give them credit for. How many conservative leaders have faced prosecution on trumped up charges? Not all have won. How many actors and everyday citizens have lost their livelihoods for daring to post opinions contrary to the mob? Quite a few. Aaron “Jay” Danielson, Lee Keltner, Ashli Babbitt and others have already paid the ultimate price for daring to oppose the powers that be.

While it may be difficult, dangerous or even deadly it is still time for us to stand up and resist the overthrow of our nation by the woke mob and their puppet masters.

Be alert, get prepared, fight the good fight!

God bless and God save the Republic.
