Enemies of Liberty are ruthless. To own your Liberty, you'd better come harder than your enemies..

Thursday, April 30, 2015


Police are a curious bunch of folks. There is little question as to what my fate would be, if I violently abducted a man off the streets and he died before I had released him. Collect a paycheck funded by coercive taxes, slap on a badge, and magically this behavior earns you a paid vacation instead of a lengthy prison sentence.


One thought folks: If Baltimore, Philly and NYC light-up and stay lit for any length of time exceeding 10 days, you should seriously consider taking your remaining FRNs and all-in to the lead market, immediately.  If Chicago, Boston, DC or ATL join-in, you really should consider activating whatever protocols you have in place for that SHTF moment.

IRS May Be Trying to Stop Tax Exemption of Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS

Why does this matter?

We already know the IRS is being used as a weapon against we untouchables (the Indian sort, not the Chicago sort) - the Lerner episode proved that to everyone.

This matters because Karl Rove is no average citizen starting a Tea Party office in East Butt Pimple, Flyover USA.  Like him or not, Karl Rove is about as heavyweight as it gets in American politics.

Every agency and branch in the Federal Government is now openly partisan, dismissive of all 'optics', and hunting political enemies with the threat of violence and force of law.

Item One: That the Enemies of Liberty (D and R and corporate, et al) are using the bureaucracies and branches as weapons.

Item Two: Not one agency is refusing to do the dirty work of enforcing these acts.

You will note that the Maryland National Guard stepped in to do violence when they were told.  You will also note that Baltimore PD stood down from doing violence when they were told.  The only conclusion an adult can reach is that those who take the King's shilling will do as the King commands.

If your IFF targeting matrix has not sharpened over the last week, you aren't paying attention, or you aren't planning to engage, anyway.



Every time I see lines of Riot LEO like this, I wait for the report that three or four guys at the front of the protester line opened their coats and started sweeping knees-to-boots with chatterboxes, one in each hand.

It is going to happen.  It will happen in these Liberty Games.  I'll bet you a nickel.

What - you think dangerous Right-Wing types
are the only folks who know how to make one of these things sing?

Sugar Pine Update: That didn't take long...

2:13 PM CST     The Oath Keepers at the mine in Oregon have transmitted a distress code.

3: 01 PM CST UPDATE from source: Unconfirmed report is that there was an attempted breach at the mine. BLM enforcement teams had been spotted surveying the site yesterday. Possibly secure. Waiting for confirmation from site commanders. One is an hour out from the mine, and they’re having trouble reaching their “man on station.”

3:20 PM CST “Last word from Joseph was that they are still doing a sweep to ensure that they are clear. No details yet on the breach. I don’t want to speculate. Teams are scrambling in the NW to get on-site and beef up the security presence.”

3:28PM STAND DOWN REPORTED: It appears that an aircraft touched down inside the perimeter, and took back off. Incursion was suspected, but it has been determined that it was a civilian bird doing touchdown practice at the wrong place and the wrong time. Site is secure.



Sugar Pine Distress Call...

The blog at Tactical Shit is reporting OathKeepers and BLM 'Enforcement Teams' have made some sort of contact at the Sugar Pine mine.  They also report that the OKs have issued a "Distress Code".

We shall see how this plays out.  I, personally, will be watching from here.

Way too much about the entire Sugar Pine gig screams "Orchestrated Bullshit" to me.  I reached out for confirmation of the "Surveillance Team/Private Contractor" reports beginning early yesterday.  Crickets.

I will not be surprised if there is shooting.  I will not be surprised if there is escalation.  I will NOT believe this is an organic event.  Bad People are playing games with this one, and there are agendas not yet revealed.  I am no conspiracy guy - but I do not, for one second, think it is impossible for upper echelons of OK to be in bed with more obvious Enemies of Liberty on this one.

The Liberty Movement needs a black eye, from the perspective of our Red Enemies.  A Patriot smack-down that results in a win for BLM would be a powerful recruiting tool for less-than-serious "Patriot" groups, all the way to NRA.

I'm not buying it.  Whenever possible, fight on your terms.  You will NOT find favorable terms at this gig.  Too many people with questionable motives have had way too much time to lay the ground on this one, with almost ZERO reliable intel coming from inside.  Now there is a sudden "Distress Call" so Patriots will have a "Fools rush in" moment.

Bad stuff, man.

In an apparent reference to gun control opponents, the former Secretary of State, who is protected around the clock by armed Secret Service agents, had this to say.

Criminalizing viewpoints.

CPX Jackson: May Day

May 1 is known to Red genetic waste as 'May Day'.  

Sparks31 offered a way to send signals to our Domestic Enemies that they are not alone, they will not be unchallenged.  The signal is subtle.  It will be missed by most of the Red mouth-breathers among us.  But deep in their caverns of Police State gear, some will hear the blip.  Some will know that nothing in life is free - especially if what you want to do is murder Liberty.

Some men will make you pay a heavy price.

CPX Jackson is a rattlesnake giving one more soft warning, before you step into the range of his fangs.  The beauty is, to those in OpFor who will hear the blip, or be told of the blip - they already know they are within range of the fangs and venom.

When we will strike is our decision.  And in the deepest part of their primal Lizard Brains, they know it, and they fear, even if their Ego will not permit those fears to bubble into the consciousness.

WaPo: Prisoner in van said Freddie Gray was ‘trying to injure himself,’ document says

Let me explain how this works.

Dude in the van gets pulled aside.  It is explained what he "needed to have seen".  If he plays ball, his charges get reduced or eliminated or they plead him out.  If he doesn't play ball, he gets hit with a stack of charges.  He gets threatened with conspiracy charges for his wife, mom and little dog, too.  He gets put into the worst possible spots while waiting for court, and his fellow convicts learn that he is a snitch who snitches, when he isn't fondling puppies and babies.

If you think I am exaggerating, you really have no idea how our "Justice System" really works.

WaPo, here.

The same WaPo that condemned the mother (post is below) who slapped her son all the way home from the riots as a bad parent who abuses black children - here.

I hope your IFF targeting matrix includes the 4th Estate.  If not, you are leaving way too many Red Fucks on the field.


Google is SkyNet - HK Birthday

It is HK's birthday (Happy Birthday, H!) - so she told me Google gave her a special header this morning.

She says it has happened in years-past.  I checked - Google gave me the standard header.

I know many of the ways they keep tabs.  I know they tailor ads based on searches and content you consume.  I get all that.

This one creeps me out.  Will we break the internet if we kill Google?  ;)


Washington Times: Interesting Gun Snippet

The Washington Times put together one of those slide shows naming the "21 best guns for home defense".

4 interesting points:

1) 2 ARs made the list - the Tavor and the AR15

2) The list did not include any .45 ACP firearms

3) The #4 selection was the S&W Model 41

4) Not one version of the 1911 made the list.

If I had to bet, I'd say it was an advertiser-driven list.

But I'm a cynic.


7th Circuit : Need to feel safe trumps Constitutional and Natural Rights

"If a ban on semi-automatic guns and large-capacity magazines reduces the perceived risk from a mass shooting, and makes the public feel safer as a result, that's a substantial benefit," the 12-page majority opinion says.

Here's the link.

This is one more reason violence in America is imminent.


Missouri Senate Yea's Con-Con

Is it possible that the Enemies of Liberty intend to try and maintain a semblance of legitimacy through a Con-Con?  Is it possible we are not in store for an Iron Fist?  Is it possible the Bad People think it necessary not to absolutely dismiss the USC and declare it "void", but to continue to have it - distorted as it may be - as their primary weapon for a few more generations?  Is it possible they mean to have a Con-Con in order to "legitimately" amend the USC to drop the perceived barriers to their absolute tyranny?

Maybe so.  Maybe no.

I'm not certain much discussion on this topic is relevant to III Patriots.  My position remains as it has ever been: Con-Con means War-War.  If I am still on the porch on the day it is officially announced, that is the day I will step off.  I will no more tolerate Mark Levin & Company in that room than I would tolerate Van Jones and Valerie Jarrett. 

But I will not be on the porch on that day.  Every instinct informs me that I will be dead before that ever comes to pass.  Because a Con-Con is meant to be nothing more than a rubber stamp to the infringements already taking place - infringements that offend my Soul.

Here's the piece on Missouri.

They Have Been Warned

Therefore, as much as my soul laments against the harsh truth before me, I make this declaration to my enemies who press me into this battle, that none shall be able to afterwards say “I did not know, you did not warn me”;

I do not care why you took that job with the government, or why you continue to hold it. I only know that you have become Judas and sold yourself to an oppressive state – your government office buildings and vehicles are part of the battlefield, and as a soldier I shall act accordingly. - LT, here.

Maryland Guard recently rec'd Riot Control Training w/LEO

Many of the Guardsmen are trained for a situation just like the one in Maryland. 

It's called "civil unrest training," and it was recently completed in Tennessee with a local police department. 

Troops have also trained in Maryland and Colorado. 

"It really helped put it into perspective the person we are going to be up against - the rioter, the unruly person," said one National Guard official.

The training includes gas mask training and practice with shields and batons. 

"If we have to use it in the outside world... we are ready for any task possible," said another National Guard official. 

Troops plan to remain in Baltimore to help until order in the city returns, or until Maryland is no longer under a "state of emergency."  - [Emphasis added - K]

Here's the piece.

Note that the Guard member emphasized above seemingly has no problem putting his skills to work wherever he is told.  

If you are a suspicious type, you might just think the riots in Baltimore were deliberately stoked (not necessarily started, but goosed) as a means of testing the training of the Maryland Guard.

But, that's just conspiracy-thinking, right there.

Move along, Citizen - before the Guard gives you a fresh thump on your noggin.

**UPDATE** Re: LEO Black Bag on Baltimore Activist

CNN is making no mention that the HumVee was - or was not - LEO or Guard.

Interesting omission, if you ask me.

Here's the update.


You will embrace Counter Value - or Slavery.

The Kerodin Doctrine:

Take no action that does not degrade the will or the ability of your Enemy to wage war.

Take every action that degrades the will or the ability of your Enemy to wage war.


Here's the original discussion from WRSA.  Hard Things, indeed.

Takeda Sokaku
My analysis is simple: Advocates of Liberty will perish or prevail in the North American Liberty Games based simply upon their willingness to attack the will and ability of Team Tyranny to wage war.

Make it too expensive and painful to be a Tyrant, and they will die or leave the field.

Breaking their Spirit and Will to fight is as effective as breaking their spines.

Sadly, your time for deep philosophical deliberation on the matter is, essentially, at an end.

Ushanka Logic 101:

Cui bono? Baltimore Chaos & Corporate Sponsorship?

Received this email from a serious and astute Patriot:

Caught just a bit of the news from Baltimore last night and found something curious:

  • Mayor's afternoon news conference, she was wearing a new baseball cap with the Under Armor logo big and proud
  • Governor's news conference - he was wearing a polo shirt with word "Governor" and perhaps a state logo of some sort on right breast - Under Armor logo big/proud on left breast
  • US Congressman Elijah Cummings (#2 on Darrell Issa's Congressional Oversight Committee) - media caught up with him walking streets last night talking to protestors - wearing what appeared to be new jacket, with Under Armor logo on left breast
  • All occurred yesterday afternoon thru evening
So - is Under Armor the new official corporate sponsor of the Baltimore riots, or for the various governmental entities in Maryland?

Oddity - they bother me. Once accident, twice coincidence, three times enemy action.


Anyone else out there noticing anything similar?

Cui bono, indeed.

Yeah - those exercises in Florida were training for work in "...other countries..."

Decapitation practice gets a live-fire training run in Baltimore.

The next time you think about heading to a protest, you'd better not zip-tie your rifle or carry empty magazines - unless they are merely props you never intend to use anyway.  You'd better make certain your will is squared away.

Also: - 10:53 p.m. ET: Baltimore police said credentialed members of the media may continue covering events in the city after curfew, the department tweeted Tuesday night. Earlier, authorities in a helicopter told the media to move or possibly face arrest. [Emphasis mine - K]

April 19, 1861 in Baltimore

The Baltimore riot of 1861 (also called the Pratt Street Riot and the Pratt Street Massacre) was a conflict on April 19, 1861, in Baltimore, Maryland, between anti-War Democrats (the largest party in Maryland), as well as Confederate sympathizers, and members of the Massachusetts militia en route to Washington for Federal service. It produced the first deaths by hostile action in the American Civil War.

Interesting, that.  Especially if you don't believe much in coincidence...

Sent by an ally.

* Just an FYI - Pratt Street today is just a few blocks from Camden Yards, and stretches both east and west, where much of the current action is taking place.  As the image on my sidebar mentions: Of course history repeats itself - MotherF*ckers don't listen...


Texas Governor Orders State Guard to Monitor Jade Helm

North American Liberty Games: Dangers of Jumping the Shark

We recently received a report from FireHawk at WRAM that turned out to be dangerously bad information.

Dave Hodges at the Common Sense Show appears to be doing the same.  Here is his report on the Midland, Texas WalMart, closed recently for 'plumbing repairs'.  He claims extraordinary .Mil & .Gov presence, frightened 'sources', and so forth.

Information I have received from a Patriot to whom I would entrust my life, who has decades of personal ties in Midland, refutes the above report.  Indeed, the video featured in the Common Sense 'report' does not even feature the correct WalMart store.

Some of you are self-aware enough to realize you are susceptible to hyperbolic and gratuitous assertions, that you may be hard-wired to accept the worst-case in many instances.  Some of you are not that self-aware, but just as susceptible.  That doesn't mean you are in any way less patriotic or dedicated - it simply means you are hard-wired in a fashion that may make you vulnerable to speculation.  (I am hard-wired to be too trusting.  It bites me in the ass routinely.  Go figure.)

The Liberty Games are not games.  I am sad to say that I become more convinced with every headline that CONUS will soon see violence related to Liberty and Tyranny on a level that saturates every neighborhood.  The quantity of violence in our 1860's Liberty Games, whether measured in raw numbers or percentages, will be seen by historians as modest by comparison - and that is saying something profoundly disgusting.

America is about to be Fundamentally Transformed from what we have known Her to be - one way or another.  Liberty will prevail, or Liberty will perish completely.  There will be no middle-ground, at least not for anyone alive today.

I am going to plead with everyone reading this post to consider Roger's Order #4: Tell the truth about what you see and what you do. There is an army depending on us for correct information. You can lie all you please when you tell other folks about the Rangers, but don't never lie to a Ranger or officer.

Live by that order and hold even your closest allies to that standard.  

And when you come across some "ally" who is jumping the shark, for whatever reason, put him down.  Whether you do so figuratively or literally is your call.  Just remember - people will die because other people peddle bad information, knowingly.  Weigh that as you will.

I have no tolerance for it.


Salon: Burning police cars and destroying private property is a legitimate political strategy

If any Patriot disagrees with Salon on that premise, please turn-in your card.

We may disagree with Salon-fucktards on who may be targeted with such tactics, and why, but we agree that the tactics are legitimate.  At least if you accept the CV & LGoP models of Resistance.

Americans kicked a King and his minions to the curb using those very tactics.

Here's the piece at Twitchy.


Orchestrated "Conflict" ramping up with Iran

I hope everyone is able to easily connect the dots regarding what is taking place with Iran.

Recent State-level talks.  Many opportunities for back-room discussions between a US .Gov that is sympathetic to the Iranian Regime and ideals and unsympathetic to America.  Everyone leaves the talks in a huff.  Suddenly, Iran moves warships into an area they have no real interest, on a matter that doesn't affect them - then they "fire on and capture" a US-owned cargo ship, with crew.

Instant casus belli.

End Game?  Beats me, I don't often try to get into the heads of insane narcissists with compound-megalomania and decipher the minutia circulating in their dangerous and deluded minds.  

But I remember my Churchill, and find it fits: I cannot forecast to you the action of Russia. It is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key. That key is Russian national interest.  

Change ...national interest... to ...whatever sick-twisted-fuck-personal-goals that might be in the diseased mind(s)... and we can probably take a WAG and get close.

War. Extirpation of all remnants of Western Civilization in North America.  Fundamental Transformation.  It isn't like they tried to keep it all a secret.

Here's the piece on the cargo ship.

Folks, it's on.  The Enemies of Liberty intend to be done with us before November 2016.

Prepare to defend yourselves.


Because it's a very special anniversary day in the neighborhood

Monday, April 27, 2015

Police said Gray was arrested after he made eye contact with officers and ran away.

Police said Gray was arrested after he made eye contact with officers and ran away. 

Officers held him down, handcuffed him and loaded him into the van. While inside, he became irate and leg cuffs were put on him, police have said.

Gray asked for medical help several times, beginning before he was placed in the van. After a 30-minute ride that included three stops, paramedics were called.

Authorities have not explained how or when Gray's spine was injured.


"Probable Cause" as defined under the "Stop & Frisk" paradigm.

Examine the premise.

Everyone out there looking at Baltimore and NOT seeing the Evils of Tyranny in play - are wrong.

What if YOU ...made eye contact and ran away...?  Or your kid?

I think you'd be hunting LEO, too.  With friends.

Looting?  Destroying your neighborhood?  Not so much.

But you'd better understand that what future FreeFor/OpFor "Candid Exchanges of Ideas" looks like, is on your screens, right now.  Colors may change.  But not the essence.

State Regulation and the Necessary and Proper Clause

“Certainly no such universal power was meant to be given them. It was intended to lace them up straightly within the enumerated powers and those without which, as means, these powers could not be carried into effect. It is known that the very power now proposed as a means was rejected as an end by the Convention which formed the Constitution. A proposition was made to them to authorize Congress to open canals, and an amendatory one to empower them to incorporate. But the whole was rejected, and one of the reasons for rejection urged in debate was, that then they would have a power to erect a bank, which would render the great cities, where there were prejudices and jealousies on the subject, adverse to the reception of the Constitution.”  - Jefferson
