Some Simple COMSEC Measures

For the uninitiated, COMSEC is military jargon for Communications Security.  COMSEC is widely practiced in the military and is becoming more and more important for civilians who have privacy and information they’d like to protect. I recently made contact with a militia organization in my new state.  I was altogether […]

French Resistance Organization: the Maquis

French Resistance Organization: the Maquis

Today we’ll discuss the French Resistance against Nazi occupation and what made it particularly effective.  I think we can boil it down to a few points, on which I’ll elaborate.  I’ll also draw comparisons between the French Resistance and the potential American Resistance. Beginning with the month-long collapse of the […]

Army Downsizing A Boon for Patriot Recruitment

Marines to cut 20,000 active duty personnel in five years.  Army to cut 30,000 troops to meet budget cuts; possibly as many as 100,000 over ten years. One of the most glaring errors of the Iraq Campaign was the culling of the Sunni-dominated Iraqi Army.  Virtually overnight, thousands of Iraqis, […]

On the Coming Civil War

(Thank you for bearing with me and these posts.  Last night I finished the last 4,000 mile round-trip of moving the rest of my belongings to the new Fort Partisan. Timely posts should continue with regularity.  I’ve also updated what I’m currently reading.) People like this are why it’s coming.  (Links […]

The Guerrilla Myth

The Guerrilla Myth

One of the first things David Kilcullen points out in his book, Counterinsurgency, is that, despite the popular knowledge and what we’ve been told or taught, irregular warfare is pretty regular.  In fact, he says that 80% of all armed conflicts since 1815 have been “irregular” -  non-state actors against […]

On National Unity

On National Unity

One of the major problems I have with talk of a “revolution” is that of national unity. Gangland. The nation as a whole is lost, folks.  There are large swaths of this country where, in a time of revolution, the rule of law would cease to exist; areas which would […]

On the Viability of a Leftist Revolution

On the Viability of a Leftist Revolution

I recently stumbled upon a copy of On Guerrilla Warfare (Mao Tse-tung), with an introduction from Brigadier General Samuel B. Griffith, USMC (Ret.).  With all this talk of resistance, revolt and revolution, I fail to see how we’re out of the woods with the current leftist revolution taking place right […]

22 JAN: The First D-Day of 2013

22 JAN: The First D-Day of 2013

On 22 January 2013, Senator Feinstein’s Assault Weapons Ban bill will be introduced into the US Congress. This is truly a monumental time in the course of our future liberties and this nation.  I reckon that 2013 is going to hold for us many D-Days – events which will change […]

Sources and Reliability, Part II

Sources and Reliability, Part II

Reliability. I drop into a specific militia website from time to time.  I’m in no way affiliated with them – I’m not even in a militia – but I’m naturally curious and just want to see what they’re saying.  They have an ‘Intel’ forum where they share information.  A lot […]

More Thoughts on Gun Control

More Thoughts on Gun Control

I read a pretty interesting article over at Bob Owens.  He provides a lot of food for thought concerning what comes after a nationwide gun ban (or similar restrictive legislation), and although I don’t agree with everything he writes, his piece is worth a read. Owens oversimplifies a good deal […]
