The American Redoubt: New Byzantium

The American Redoubt: New Byzantium

For several years, astute Patriots have pondered the likenesses between the late Roman Empire and America’s future  – or should I say, present.  There are striking similarities between the two but to say that our courses are parallel would be far from accurate.  More interesting to me than any parallel […]

Modern Militias and The Battle of Brooklyn

Modern Militias and The Battle of Brooklyn

Far too often do I see blog writings and social media posts where “Patriots” and militia members espouse to be “ready” to face the stormtroopers.  Anyone who now says he’s ready to take arms against them is a fool.  Think of the enormity of what you’re saying.  This post is […]

Liberty & Tyranny

Liberty & Tyranny

I bought Mark Levin’s Liberty and Tyranny a handful of years ago and read the first few chapters.  It was as far as I went until recently.  Liberty and Tyranny is essentially ten essays on the topics of tyrannical Statist Progressivism and its assaults on Liberty.  It’s a great book […]

Reflections on Secession

Reflections on Secession

Sure, I signed my state’s petition to secede.  (Coincidentally but not at all comparable, an ancestor signed the Ordnance of Secession of Georgia.)  Most people correctly realize that these petitions are  symbolic of our frustration with and desire to reject federal statist policies affecting all 50 states.  Still, there are […]

Counter-Drone Revolution

Counter-Drone Revolution

Drones are the perfect spy machine.  In short, they have an outsized influence over the battlespace and are destroying (or will soon destroy) individual privacy. Don’t want your daily telephone conversations to be “heard”?  Get VOIP encryption or don’t talk on the phone.  Don’t want your purchases followed?  Use cash.  […]

General Petraeus and Moral High Ground

General Petraeus and Moral High Ground

After returning from Iraq in 2009, General David Petraeus was a real hero of mine.  Old Devil Six, himself.  I recall the story of him, many years previous to 2009, being hospitalized after being shot during a live fire exercise.  The details are fuzzy now but he spent a short […]
