EXSUM Redux

EXSUM Redux

It’s been a long while since I last posted an Executive Intelligence Summary; something we refer to as the EXSUM.  They’re going to resume. First, a bit of background.  My second deployment began as a typical Intelligence analyst’s job, where Sergeant Culper worked at a desk for twelve or more […]

Redoubts: The Appalachian Messenger

(Bottom Line Up Front (BLUF) or TL;DR: Go read the first edition of The Appalachian Messenger.  Yours truly wrote a short article about an experience overseas that changed the way I thought about the future of this nation.) With the success of the American Redoubt, many of those living in […]

The Three Types of Insurgencies

The Three Types of Insurgencies

There’s a sizable number of those in the Patriot community who believe that restoring Liberty will come to violence and, of those, a great number believe that an insurgency is the way forward. Insurgencies are often how the disaffected few, be they religious, ethnic, or political/ideological groups, respond to the […]

If Only We Had Their Determination

If Only We Had Their Determination

Following members of ISIS on their social media accounts is a wealth of great information.  It’s been a worthwhile effort to see some of the propaganda they’ve been churning out.  These Daeshbags* who rape and pillage deserve to die, but I have to admire their dedication to their mission. I […]

Appalachian Redoubt from an Intelligence Perspective

Appalachian Redoubt from an Intelligence Perspective

A couple weeks ago at the NC PATCON, I moderated a very abbreviated discussion of the Appalachian Redoubt.  There was some really good input, however, we didn’t get the opportunity to finish the discussion points.  So I’d like to open the floor up to everyone’s input. From an intelligence standpoint, […]

BLUF: Download this Redoubt Intelligence Flowchart and apply it towards your collection plan. I’ll always remember former SecDef Donald Rumsfeld for a few things.  For one, he read one of my intelligence products when I was a young PFC in Afghanistan (some staff hoople head briefed it to him but […]

Radio Free Redoubt Show

Radio Free Redoubt Show

During a recent long drive, I plugged in some previous Radio Free Redoubt (RFR) podcasts.  If you’re a Redoubter and not listening, then you’re wrong.  I would even suggest that all Liberty-loving Americans, regardless of location, listen to John Jacob’s show.  He’s doing some great work in the Redoubt and […]

Political Movements

Political Movements

We’ve been going over popular support in secession/resistance/revolution movements, and I’ve received a few questions about how we build popular support, specifically from within the American Redoubt.  (This would apply equally to the Appalachian Redoubt, the Republic of Texas, and any other areas.)  There is a way forward!

Unity of Spirit

Unity of Spirit

Trudging right along in Learning to Eat Soup with a Knife (Nagl), we’re arriving at Mao’s “unity of spirit” concept that exists between his revolutionary army and the people. Whether we’re talking about secession, a resistance or guerrilla campaign, or a full-on revolution, amassing popular support is just as important, […]
