Wild times we’re living in. And a lot of uncertainty coupled with real reasons to prepare. A big part of that is being well informed. There’s good stuff out there and a lot of well meaning people, and then again there’s a lot of throwback fear mongers and blatant disinformation that people should really know better than to pay attention to. Don’t believe most of what you read and only about half of what you see. Pretty good rule, right? One of the reasons I started this blog, all the way back to the beginning, was to point out some simple codified ways for Right-leaning folks to a) collect & verify information and b) share it sans-grid. In fact one of the first things I wrote was how to do so for Sparks31’s old blog [a re-run of that post can be found here] So naturally, as its gained attention over the past couple of years, things come across my desk that inspired the whole reason for me to begin writing in the first place. Case in point:
Objection #1: I thought we were past the ‘UN troops hidden in the cave’ meme but I suppose not. In years past, every summer there’d be rumors of a UN takeover replete with EVIDENCE! of such through pictures of Reserve or National Guard units going to Annual Training events. These were spread by the usual suspects and spread far and wide on a lot of ‘constitutional militia’ outlets, who are far better at damaging their credibility than a government ever could. They’re not driving through the woods to get to the training sites, folks. Part of the reason Eisenhower commissioned the US’ version of the autobahn, the interstate system, is for efficient movement of military equipment. They have unit numbers painted on the front and rear bumpers and every Unit has a web page and social media presence. A little research, after you construct a good SALUTE report, just might go a long way.
So when I see a ‘UN command vehicle’ that looks an awful lot like a US Forest Service mobile communications hotspot truck, in a place prone to wildfires in wildfire season, I get a little salty. It’s far from EMP proof, by the way. The truck is nothing more than a big fancy repeater for fancy public service radios used by Hotshot firefighter teams. A little investigative research would do one well, like I dunno, GETTING A ZOOMED IN SHOT OF THE LOGO ON THE DOOR. When I see UN painted vehicles staged for inspection, with no current-generation turret provisions or other standard MRAP equipment (and I would know) staged outside a publicly known State Department Warehouse, I get a little more salty and I label the person conveying this information a moron. Not even ten seconds into a search, folks. Because we build these trucks to send to sunny places like the whole continent of Africa to protect window-licking NGOs from being the next gore-porn matinee. We fund humanitarian missions in nearly all of the usual suspect basket cases, and these flower children staff tend to get kidnapped while helping the poor starving children of warlords who defecate in their own wells. There’s A LOT of actual MAT-Vs and MRAPs and even Strykers and Bradleys on US soil [GASP!] that could quell a city far faster than what is pictured in white.
Objection #2: AntiFa is a communist insurrectionist movement. [All you self-labeled ‘anarchists’ out there, educate yourselves on the roots of your alleged movement- Bakunin and a quiet place- he and Marx disagreed minorly only in how things were to be managed post-revolution; neither sought to conserve anything you want] They tend to not be so police-friendly; the police are an institution of control, or so they’re conditioned to believe, and serve only to repress the proletariat class from revolution. These are their terms, not mine. Do you really think they’re gonna be using military equipment? Their current incarnation is much more akin to Carlos Marighella’s failed Brazilian street party, and this ‘4 NOV’ threat, if it manifests, would look similar. They’re Henry Rollins-wanna be street thugs with really shitty ink who won’t wander far from the Ivory Tower which breeds and feeds them. Fly over country is a scary proposition and suburbia is easily intimidated. BLM, WWP, etc are a little more credible, being mostly white bougie champagne liberals whipping hood rats who’re just smart enough to be indoctrinated to Marx, but understand they’re all arms of the same losers, and keep in mind they have zero clue what sort of consequences they conjure; they’ve largely never faced more than a few nights in jail much less a third world fingernail factory.
Objection #3: Military Auxillary Radio Service, or MARS, is a group of amateur radio operators that serve to aid the military in times of crisis. Originally it was a final fallback communications plan in case of nuclear war, and utilized to make phone calls from deployed troops via phone patch relays. Since that’s obsolete, they’re back to the ‘last line of commo’ mission. They do interoperability exercises regularly, some monthly, some announced, some not. That it falls on 4 NOV is what it is- a coincidence. Believe it or not not everything in life is a giant conspiracy. Many MARS guys read this blog (they tell me so) and several contribute gems of wisdom from time to time. To suggest any of them, deeply patriotic, many vets themselves and more often that not Republican and Right-leaning, would be willingly allied with any leftist insurrection is absurd and speaks to egregious levels of ignorance or fear mongering. While I jab a lot at the ARRL for their PC-friendly stances, they’d never be a party to such a thing, and the coordination just ain’t there. Sorry to burst that bubble folks. But..but…the .gov scheduled it and they’re doing it and don’t even KNOW!!! Yeah right. Folks spewing that crap talk way more than do. End of story.
Credible Threats and You
We’ve debunked the doom-porn. The Obama years are somewhat over folks, quit paying attention to this kind of crap. There’s a large number of real threats, and since a swath of you have taken a year off, it’s time to get your heads back in the game. Although I think very low of ‘AntiFa’, their allies mentioned above and a few others are more dangerous. ELF/ALF [militant offshoots of Earth First!, themselves leftist eco-terrorists inspired by Edward Abbey] wage war through sabotage, and I seek to remind you reader, many of these go unnoticed or uninvestigated as anything other than accidents. If you think they’re not active, you’re dead wrong, and keep in mind they can attack the real institutions of capitalism rather easily, and for them, coal power plants are an even more lucrative target now than before after 8 years of Democrat demonization and climate change religious indoctrination. The Soviets actually preferred green party groups [according to Viktor Suvrov] as they could recruit, indoctrinate and operate rather easily. So much so that they derogatorily called them ‘watermelons’; green on the outside and red within.
North Korea’s rapid and aided advancement in missile technology is a very real threat. The KN-08 has the ability to target most of the continental US as it is a three stage solid fuel rocket. How do we know this? Because the engines were built in Ukraine. Er…I mean, ‘copied’ from Russian designed rocket engines built in Ukraine that DPRK just magically found the blueprints, manufacturing sophistication, and advanced chemistry to produce fuel for in a timespan of less than a year. One ponders if the Clintons had any undisclosed speaking stops in Pyongyang. So will rocket man do it? I’m not willing to say he won’t. But based on the map which is reflective of our own analysis, I would say the threat is indeed both clear and present.
The current legal coup going on in Washington is a very real threat and should be at the top of everyone’s list. They are leaving no stone unturned, real or imagined, and have been caught red-handed falsifying information from a foreign proxy (yes, Brits are indeed foreigners), in an effort to nullify the election. The Republican mainstays appear to be just as culpable in running protection for the egregious lawlessness of the previous administration as their own coastal party of identity politics. The levels of corruption would be banana republic-style hilarity, were they not sad. There appears to be limited if no rule of law whatsoever at the top for those insulated few. C. Wright Mills was correct in one respect- there is indeed a Powered Elite. And when the veil is pulled from the man behind the curtain, normally something bad happens to the pullers. No free trip back to Kansas, Dorothy.
So where then does that leave us? If you’re not prepared to take care of your own, do anything in your power to become so. It is not too late. Static Infantrymen always improve their positions. No matter how good you think you are, you’re not good enough. Stock more food. Stock more ammo. Get square with your neighbors. Work on your relationships- with your significant others and the Lord. Seek training- you’ll need it. If you’ve been on the fence about that one class or you’re fuzzy on a topic, there’s no time like the present. And believe me, it’s more real than it’s possibly ever been. Lose the silly notions and for your own sake, don’t believe the doom-porn…he time for that as an entertainment medium has passed. There’s too many more important (and real) things to be concerned with.
