Responses To Texas’ New Laws

The Texas legislature has managed to pass several new laws that the Republican/Conservative voters who elected these jokers to Austin have been demanding for quite some time.

Texas has passed “Constitutional Carry,” which allows anyone who is legally able to purchase a firearm to be able to carry it, open or concealed, without a special license. It is about time. For all the impression people have of gun rights, this is an area where Texas does not lead. At least 20 other states have enacted such legislation before we did here in the Lone Star state. So far, there has been little reaction to this law from the Federal government or other states.

The Texas Heartbeat law, which makes illegal to perform or assist in the performance of an abortion after a fetal heartbeat has been detected (sort of) on the other hand has resulted in a firestorm. At least one CEO has been terminated for having the gall to share his support for the law. Ride share service Lyft has promised to cover the legal fees of any drivers who are taken to court for assisting in an illegal abortion. Hollyweird, of course, is calling for protests, bans and boycotts. The wonderful city of Portlandia (formerly known as the city of roses but now better know for rioting) is looking to ban travel to and the trade of goods and services from Texas by city government and employees. The reaction from the Federal government has been most threatening. Joe Biden who couldn’t care in the least about abandoning Americans to the hands of the Taliban has promised the full weight of his ruling junta will be brought to bear on Texas for passing this law. His STASI Department of (in)Justice is already moving to use a 1994 law that protects those seeking or providing abortions from obstruction or threats of physical harm to attack the law and anyone who enforces it. They are attempting to classify this new law as “violence” against those seeking to obtain or provide reproductive health services.”

Today, Governor Abbot signed the Election Integrity bill, making it law. This is the law that drove Demonrat representatives out of Texas to avoid a quorum and the passage of the law (sort of). In actuality, this is a different law by the same name to bamboozle voters into thinking they are getting what they asked for. I haven’t seen any responses on this one but after the firestorm that the Georgia law generated, I am sure it is coming.

All three of these new laws and the reactions they have engendered are indicative of the increasing divide in this nation. There is less and less common ground between the left and the right. Either this nation will split (relatively) peacefully or one side or the other (maybe both) will be destroyed. The left can not coexist with the right. They will not be satisfied until their woke, communist vision of this nation is fully implemented. Those who disagree with them will be silenced; through coercion (bullying), through governmental force or through violence (Antifa, BLM or government agencies). We can protect ourselves by separation, we can submit, or we can fight and many will die. Those are the only choices left.

Stay alert, stay prepared and stay safe.

God bless.

One Of The Few Supporting The Many

According to the newly release figures, 61% of Americans didn’t pay income taxes last year. With the COVID unemployment rates and such the ranks of non-taxpayers increased by 40% last year!

Being one of the 39% carrying the load for the rest of the country is not something I have ever aspired to…

How much longer can the few continue to carry the load for the many?

Stay alert, stay prepared and stay safe.

God bless.

Timothy Hale-Cusanelli – A US Political Prisoner

Timothy Hale-Cusanelli has been an  army reservist for eleven years and is a contractor at the Naval Weapons Station in New Jersey. He has no criminal record.

He was arrested on January 15th of this year for participating in the occupation of the US Capitol on January 6th. He has been held without bail since then and transferred between several jails/prisons in multiple states during that time.

It is reported that many of the January 6th prisoners have been subjected to beatings and torture while being held without bail. There are no specific reports of this man being treated in that manner at this time.

None of the charges against him are for violent crimes. He is not accused of vandalizing or stealing anything. None of the charges include weapons possession or use. The charges he faces are for trespassing, obstruction, disorderly conduct and “parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building.”

The US Department of Justice prosecutor has requested that his trial be delayed until 2022 in order to give them time to build a case against him stating that “the government cannot meet discovery obligations until early 2022. That’s a conservative estimate”

In the meantime, he stays in jail.

The justice department is also accusing him of being a white supremacist and supporting Nazi ideology. No official complaints have ever been filed on him either at his place of employment or in his Army reserve unit. The primary basis for these accusations by the US DoJ, which are not crimes by the way, are the memes found on his phone.

I know what I believe but I would like to hear your thoughts, is this man a political prisoner?

Stay alert, stay prepared and stay safe.

God bless.

You Ain’t Really Serious About…

I hear this over and over again…

You ain’t really serious about prepping (or self-defense) unless you (fill in the blank).

One of my favorite YouTube channels recently posted a video about prepping where he basically said that if you aren’t homesteading in the back country, living off the land and driving a 3/4 ton truck you’re not really serious about prepping.

It’s not just one guy, this type of attitude is prevalent in the prepping community. It is equally, if not more prevalent in the self-defense community.

I have heard self-defense instructors give a laundry list of classes and gear that are “required” if you are serious about defending yourself and your family. To listen to some of them “you’ll get kill’t in the street” if you don’t carry a full sized service pistol, three spare magazines, a backup gun, a fixed blade knife, folding knife, trauma kit, and a flashlight. Oh, don’t forget the rifle, body armor, helmet and a 200 rounds of ammo in your vehicle. Plus, you need advanced training with each along with earning a black belt in at least one martial art.

I admire and respect preppers who can live off the grid in a community of like-minded individuals. I am envious of preppers who can afford to buy and outfit a hardened missile silo for themselves and their family. I also admire people who have invested in becoming so skilled with firearms and martial arts that they are a walking incarnation of John Wick. When the fecal material hits the rotary device I hope and pray those guys are on my team.

But let’s face facts:

    1. Not everyone can afford (or even wants) to live in their very own nuclear bomb-proof bunker, off the grid.
    2. Not everyone can afford the ammo, training and time investment required reach John Wick skill levels.
    3. The vast majority of us will probably never need either one to survive.

For the vast majority of us, having some extra money in the bank for “rainy days” will handle all the disasters we will ever face. Having some extra food on hand and the ability to prepare it when the power goes out will take care of almost every other disaster.

Keeping our eyes out of our phones and being aware of our environment will keep 99% or people out of life threatening encounters. Staying away from bad places at bad times will take care of most everything else.

I choose to be a little more prepared than that and I encourage others to be as well but if you ever hear me falling into the “You Ain’t Really Serious About” mindset please call me out for being an arrogant jerk.

Stay alert, stay prepared and stay safe.

God bless.

It’s About Control…

A wise man once said:

Gun control is not about guns, it’s about control.

Control is what The Party, AmSoc, wants over the people of the US. Removing the threat of armed resistance is only one aspect of an agenda designed to increase dependence on the government and remove the will and ability to defend our freedoms and oppose their “benevolent” tyranny.

Fear is a tool of control. Fear of the Russians, fear of the the white folks, fear of crime, economic fears, climate fears and fear of disease are all used to drive compliance and dependence.

Fear is used to divide us. Fear is used to create dependency. Fear is used to control.

The powers that be, the forces of darkness, AmSoc, want us all to be good little proles, easily controlled and marching in step with their agendas.

Wake up!

Resist that control…while you still can.

Stay alert, stay prepared and stay safe.

God bless.

Private Police And Security Forces

Magen Am team

I came across an article today on a private security force being developed to protect predominantly Jewish neighborhoods in Los(t) Angeles. The group, Magen Am which means “nation’s shield” in Hebrew, is a privately funded non-profit that recruits former military men to provide security patrols and guards. They respond to calls from citizens of any faith within those neighborhoods (read more on Magen Am).

Last month I came across an article that showed that the company behind the crime tracking app Citizen was working on an idea for an upsell opportunity providing private police response for subscribers to the service. Once word leaked out the company denied the plans and quickly dropped the idea (read more here).

Several neighborhoods around me have already contracted with off duty police officers to provide extra patrols during high crime periods.

As our nation continues to spiral into chaos I see this trend becoming ever more prevalent. Those who can afford private security forces will remain untouched by the chaos while the rest of us will be left to pay the consequences.

As the chaos grows, more informal and less well trained groups will arise to provide protection. Some of these groups will be good folks. Some will not, search for Altamont and Hell’s Angels, for an idea of the kinds of things that can happen.

Remember Matt Graham’s Kill House Rules and start thinking about how they will apply to you and yours as we slide into the darkness and chaos:

1.  NOBODY IS COMING TO SAVE YOU.  Whether an event lasts a few seconds, a few hours, or even a few days – you have to work as though nobody is coming to save you.

2.  You are your savior, so start working because EVERYTHING IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.  You are your security, you are your medic, you are your rescuer.

3.  You are your own best resource to SAVE WHO NEEDS TO BE SAVED.  Nobody wants to save your life more than you, so set yourself up for success by having the simple tools and knowledge to do so: do what you can with what you have.  Recognize that nobody is in a better position to start saving your life than you.

4.  Sometimes saving lives means you have to KILL WHO NEEDS TO BE KILLED.  It has been almost 15 years since I first wrote “the more effective you are at taking a life, the more successful you’ll be at saving one” and nothing in the intervening time has changed my mind.  Be swift, be decisive, be final.

5.  Mostly, ALWAYS BE WORKING.  There is always something you can be doing to improve your position.  Always.  Because nobody is coming to save you.

Stay alert, stay prepared and stay safe.

God bless.
