What Does Resistance Look Like?

In a previous post I was explicit that when we encourage resistance we are not calling for violence. Many folks out there seem to think that the only two options available are acceptance/compliance or violence. That is most definitely not the case. It may get to that point at some time in the future but, hopefully, by resisting now we can avoid the horrors and tragedies that will come from a violence.

So, what are we advocating? Let’s take a look.

Voting/Political Activism

Since the 2020 election it has become painfully obvious to most anyone who is actually paying attention that in certain parts of the country and certainly at a national level the fix is in. Those behind the current regime are far too adept and willing to commit fraud in order to retain and solidify their hold on power for us to be able to affect change and deliver the nation from the usurpers through the ballot box. So, why should we bother with the political process at all including voting?

As the recent results in Virginia and the Presidential election of 2016 show, every once in a while the tyrants underestimate the level of cheating required to win and we are able to elect someone who will throw monkey wrenches into their machinations. Even if we are not victorious, the more of us vote the more they have to cheat. The more they have to cheat the more obvious their actions become. The more obvious their actions become the more people will see the truth of what is happening. The more people who see the truth the more people will join The Resistance. By staying involved politically, or better yet, becoming more involved politically we expose them and what they are doing to this nation.

Don’t Submit/Don’t Comply

We are seeing more and more people standing up against the illegal and immoral orders issued by the powers behind the current regime. Whether it is airline pilots calling in sick or students walking out of schools that cover up rape accusations in the name of political correctness people are starting to make a stand. Join them!

American patriots are, for the most part, some of the most law-abiding members of our society but when those laws are immoral, unjust or illegal we need to make a stand and ignore those laws. Do not give in, Do what is right.

Will there be negative consequences for such actions?

Most likely, yes.

It will not always be easy. It may even be difficult or uncomfortable.

But…if we do not make a stand and win this fight peacefully we may be forced into a level of conflict that is even more difficult and dangerous. If we cannot win this fight now we will unleash one of two horrors. The horror that the heroes of our adversaries, like Mao and Stalin, unleashed on their own people (don’t forget Hitler was also a Socialist) or the horror of an actual civil war.

Keep Your Sense of Humor

It is very easy to let the weight of what we are dealing with drag you down. It is very easy to become so single focused on the fight that we forget about real life. Work to maintain your sense of humor. Work to ensure that we do not miss the wonderful moment life gives us. These are the things that make life worth living.

Show Your Humanity

Make sure that despite the factionalization/Balkanization of our nation we do not lose our humanity. Prove the names they are using to “other” our side to be false. Show the nation that we love others, that we are not racists, that we are not terrorists…

 

For now, these are my recommendations to begin our resistance. I will add to them and expand on them as time goes on. Do you have more ideas? Awesome! Share them with us and we will add them to our list.

Be alert, get prepared, fight the good fight!

God bless and God save the Republic.

Dear Virginia, Welcome to the Resistance! Love, Florida

This was a tweet from Christina Pushaw, spokesperson for Florida Governor Ron Desantis in response to the Republican sweep of the Virginia elections. At that point I decided to go ahead and release my own post Welcome To The Resistance and to retitle the blog to match. I had been toying with that title change and had the “Welcome” post written and sitting as a draft for several weeks but when I saw her tweet I knew the time had come to quit thinking about it and act.

Now, let’s take a look at what happened in Virginia.

Republican candidates swept the state-wide offices including Governor (Glenn Youngkin), Lieutenant Governor (Winsome Sears) and Attorney General (Jason Miyares).  While this is a victory for the Resistance, it is hardly the “red wave” or “crushing defeat” the propagandists on our side are claiming. The difference between winning and losing in a state of 8.6 million people was around 67,000 votes. Youngkin’s opponent received more votes (real or forged) than any other candidate in history. In any other year he would have won. Also please note, that although the race has been called and the leftist candidate has conceded, there are still votes being counted and those are in areas that lean heavily to the left.

If these results stand then it is definitely a victory for The Resistance. However, if they can not use this opportunity to pass laws to ensure the integrity of future elections it will be a short lived victory. Those who hate everything this nation stands for and was built on will not underestimate the number of fraudulent votes needed next time around. Patriots will not surprise them a second time.

We have won a minor victory in the war to take back our country from the tyrants who have stolen it from us and are determined to loot and destroy it. We have a long fight still ahead of us and, truth be told, it has only just begun. However, it does show that the tyrants in charge may not be as “in charge” as they believe and the power of the vote can still be a powerful weapon in the arsenal of The Resistance.

Be alert, get prepared, fight the good fight!

God bless and God save the Republic.

Portland: This Is My Surprised Face…Really

I prayed it would not be so…but it was.

God granted us free will and many in Portland have freely chosen violence. The planned protests by “right wing” groups were countered by Antifa and the Democratic Socialists and the results were unfortunately predictable.

I will hand it to the organizers of the planned violence by the left, using milkshakes laced with quick dry cement to hide their violent intent was pretty clever. Someone out there spent some time thinking that one up and maybe some money too.

The renegade Republican legislators are still on the run. If they are smart they are all hiding in other, less violent states.

As I mentioned in a response earlier. Don’t expect the violence to go away. As we head into the Presidential election cycle we will see more and more of this. Depending on the outcome of the election, we will likely see it escalate even further.

Be aware, be alert and be prepared for it.

Take care and God bless.

Oregon: Saturday Could Be The End Of The Non-Violent Protests

While magazines like Rolling Stupidity Stone freaks out over working class Americans protesting in their state capital:

Keep in mind this is the same magazine that tried to make heroes of Flash Bang and SpeedBump (the terrorists responsible for the Boston Marathon bombings).

Tomorrow (Saturday) holds a real threat of violence as not one but two “Right Wing” protests are scheduled in Portland Oregon (link). Last year these same groups attempted to exercise their Constitutional rights and the result was violence and mayhem as “Anti-Fascists” showed up in mass for their own “counter protest.”

Maybe the mayor or Portlandia will allow the police to do their jobs and keep these groups apart. I pray this is true bit based on that particular elected official’s history he will be fueling the flames instead of trying to keep the peace.

Prayers for all those involved and for peace…

Oregon: Anti-Republican Walkout Protests Planned For Tuesday

Two groups, Pineros y Campesinos Unidos del Noroeste (a farm workers union) and Causa (an Immigrant Rights Organization) are organizing a protest in the state capital on Tuesday to show their displeasure at the walkout by Republican representatives over a climate bill.

Supporters of the Republican legislators who walked out have been protesting in front of the capital since the walkout happened. No word on if the two groups will both be protesting at the same time or how they will be kept separated.

Pray both of these protests are peaceful.

Oregon: Both Sides Protest Peacefully

Protesters in support of a Republican walkout to prevent the passage of a climate bill gathered outside the State House both Saturday and Snuday (link). Protesters in favor of the bill forced a road closure and the closure of the Portland city hall (link).

No reports of violence from either protest, thank God. Keep this situation in your prayers. It is a powder keg and lots of folks on both sides like to play with matches.

 

Oregon State House Shut Down Due To “Militia” Threat

When it appeared that “anti-government groups” might attend a scheduled protest inside the capital by local republicans the president of the senate closed the statehouse due to the “threat” (link).

Was there truly a threat of violence from the “anti-government” groups? Was the threat for violence actually from the risk of Antifa deciding to crash the party? Or, was this a convenient excuse to shut down the voice of a minority in the state?

The real risk, in my opinion, is a clash between Antifa and conservative groups. It would not take much for such a confrontation to turn into a bloodbath and if it does will it set off a chain reaction of violence outside of the capital and outside of the state.

Another risk would be for one of these protesting Republican lawmakers to be found by Antifa supporters and attacked or killed. That too could set of a chain reaction of escalating violence.

Pray for peace, pray for the state of Oregon and pray for our nation.

Pay Attention To Oregon…

While most of the nation is focused on Iran and the threat of (more) war the in Middle East keep a close eye on Oregon and keep the state in your prayers.

Conservative state representatives have walked out of the legislature in protest of proposed environmental legislation that they feel would destroy the economy of the rural portions of the state. The Governor has called on the state police to round up the absentee reps and force them to return to the capital. One conservative representative (Boquist) was quoted as saying that if the police were sent after him, they should “send bachelors and come heavily armed. I’m not going to be a political prisoner in the state of Oregon.”

Some of this is being reported in the national media but the more incendiary rhetoric is not. Like the Bundy Standoff and the Occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge (also in Oregon) this has the potential to be a real flashpoint. One side has already shown a propensity for violence and the other has has shown an unwillingness to be pushed much further. With a presidential election in the near future the likelihood of outside agitators becoming involved is also very high.

Guest Post: The Basics Of Prepping by CC Cooper (Part 3)

Here is the third part of this series of guest posts from reader “CC Cooper.” More good insights:

“You can ignore reality, but you cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.”

If we have a definite need, it is to be aware that things happen without advance notice. That knowledge gives us the small advantage to be ready BEFORE danger arrives. It also necessitates the need to be brutally honest with yourself. Accepting the personal responsibility for your own happiness, health, and well-being.

But there’s a price.

A price for inaction that will far outweigh any price you may pay for preparedness or mental awareness.

So, which price are you going to pay? And will you pay with the (fiat) currency in your pocket, the sweat of your brow, time invested in knowledge, or the most precious, your life or that of your loved one’s?

Will you set aside time? Will you “invest” time rather than “spend” time? Will you commit resources that will assist you in your journey or continue down that rut towards oblivion?

Decisions must be made now while you still have the freedom to do so. Procrastination at this point may have dire consequences and impact you and those that rely on you in a verybad way.

Hope that the above snaps some people awake and gives others the determination and assurance that they are on the right track.

God Bless
