It’s Time for Slovenes to Arm Up

Janez Janša is a former three-time prime minister of Slovenia, and a staunch conservative anti-communist. He has observed the recent deterioration of the security situation in southeastern Europe, and has come to the conclusion that citizens of Slovenia need to arm themselves.

His statement posted on social media has been published by the Slovenian magazine Demokracija:

Janez Janša: The Situation Is Serious. Arm Yourselves. Legally.

Janez Janša has posted an extended post on the social network X about why he thinks the average Slovenian citizen should legally arm himself. The President of the Slovenian Democratic Party (Slovenska demokratska stranka — SDS) believes that the current government is incapable of protecting Slovenia and its citizens.

“Thank you to all those who have spread the appeal. And also to those who have inadvertently done the same. I am thinking of the radicalised media stars who, during the time of the Covid-19 epidemic, daily called for illegal actions or promoted those who did so, but are now horrified when someone warns people of the danger coming in time, and calls for legal actions,” the former Prime Minister wrote on the social network X.

We are publishing the full text of his post below.

“The wise understood my call. Those smart and responsible will heed it. The rest will trust Golob, Poklukar and Šarec (or even Jenull, Kovac, Muki and the “pride” parades) to be able to protect Slovenia and to protect them personally in the event of terrorist attacks. Which is a bit like believing in 1991 that Školc, Jakic and Aksentijevic could protect Slovenia in the event of the Yugoslavian People’s Army’s aggression. These are officials of the current government of the Republic of Slovenia who, since June, have ignored calls from the SDS party to convene a meeting of the National Security Council to discuss measures to curb illegal migration and manage security risks. They have been tearing down the fence on our southern border, and so now, when in a panic they are reintroducing border controls with our neighbouring countries (although only yesterday Golob was claiming that such controls were of no help), they are merely diverting the flow of illegal immigrants from the roads to the cart tracks.

Prime Minister Golob even said recently that the only solution to the problem of illegal migration is to make it legal! Migrants understood that similarly to Angela Merkel‘s statement in 2015 that they are welcome in Germany. Interior Minister Poklukar said a few days ago that the police have proved their competence by processing more than 40,000 illegal migrants in the asylum procedure in Slovenia this year!? They did not prevent their entry, but instead enabled it! The current Minister of Defence is running his department like a reality show. At the same time, the current Golob government is richly financing the so-called NGOs who, at a recent rally in Ljubljana, directly called for the destruction of the State of Israel and threatened the “infidels” with a “holy” war.

We believe that Slovenian police officers would rather prevent illegal migration than play the role of taxi drivers from the borders to asylum houses. But as the African proverb says: An army of lions led by an elephant will always be defeated by an army of elephants led by a lion. Minister Poklukar is not even able to set up a police station in Ivancna Gorica, so the people of Suha Krajina have had to set up village guards.

The world has changed a lot in the last decade. In the Euro-Atlantic area, mostly for the worse. Western civilisation has been seriously undermined from within in its value foundations. Once again, unpunished evil from Moscow is physically threatening our eastern neighbourhood. The pressure of mass illegal migration is radically dismantling the existing way of life in the European Union and strengthening militant, pro-terrorist nuclei across European metropolises. Once safe and prosperous cities are experiencing an unprecedented increase in crime. Unfortunately, this includes Ljubljana.

The latest incursion into Israel by Palestinian terrorists (once trained en masse in Pancevo in the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia) has reaffirmed the importance of people being armed — legally and well. In many places, armed individuals in kibbutzim have successfully prevented even greater slaughter of women and children.

Report From Sderot: Day 15, and Hamas is Winning

MC sends the latest grim news from the border with Gaza.

Fortifications at Kibbutz Revivim

Report From Sderot: Day 15, and Hamas is Winning

by MC

Sad to say, Hamas is wining. They are winning because whatever Israel does, the world hates Jews and regards them with deep, deep suspicion. They will say nice words, and do all they can to make sure Israel cannot win.

The Lutheran Church openly despises Jews and supports Hamas’ atrocities because they believe Israelis have kept Gaza penned up for decades (they forgot to tell us that the Egyptians too, have closed their border with Gaza). Martin Luther hated Jews, so it is inevitable, I suppose.

The Ivy League hates Jews, and will take no action against students and faculty supporting Hamas terrorism.

The Roman Catholic Church, and especially its revolutionary Pope, appears to have a very ambivalent attitude towards Jews. Even after Vatican II declared that the Jews were not “Christ Killers” that doctrine persists. One must asked oneself why Jesus was tried (by the Herodian ‘Jewish’ elite in the middle of the night). Was it to ensure that the average ‘Jew in the street’ who supported Yahushua (Jesus) was presented with a ‘fait accompli’ come the next morning?

And those awful left-wing Jews who are so arrogant and ignorant. Do they not realize that they are next on the butchery shopping list? The DNC needs their money, and it is probably the only reason that Brandon is making a lot of noise (and screwing the process through his inaction).

Hamas is winning because of the hostages. They are the ace of trumps, providing a lever that can be twisted and turned to squeeze White House policy any way but win.

My son has now been at the Northern Border for two weeks, all of it on the front line. In civilian life he is one of an elite squad clearing mines, of which there are many in Israel going back to 1916. Sometimes he brings back little bits of military antiquity.

But two weeks in the front line without relief is not good news in military terms, and Sleepy Joe seems to be insisting that Israel hold back on its proposed invasion of Gaza. Ostensibly this is to enable further hostage negotiations. With 200+ hostages, that could mean that he never needs to authorise the invasion, and we all sit comfortably and do nothing.

President Jefferson was faced with the same problem. The Barbary Pirates (also Muslim fundamentalists) were commerce-raiding and taking hostages/slaves in exactly the same way as Hamas (they had read the same book, of course). But President Jefferson was a man of integrity and action. He created the USMC and put them ashore at Tripoli. The Barbary Pirates quickly surrendered. Muslims have no stomach for a real fight against hardened troops. Martell and Sobieski demonstrated this.

The Muslim way is to attack a soft target and brutalize the victims in a way that will intimidate all those in the immediate area, such that they will surrender without a fight. This is all chronicled in the Koran. The book of war, occupation and submission.

Happy Revolution Day

Given the grievous state into which our once-great Republic has fallen, wishing everybody a happy Independence Day just doesn’t seem appropriate. How independent are we when the federal government intrudes into so many aspects of our lives, and forces us to do so many things we don’t want to do?

Thus it seems more fitting to honor the revolutionary aspect of the events of July 4, 1776. The relevant excerpt from the Declaration of Independence is this:

“…whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

So here’s to Revolution Day!

There are times when things just need to go BOOM.

Think Bosnia, Not Gettysburg

A reader who goes by the nom de guerre fred333 sends the following observations on the current Culture War underway in the USA:

The US is NOT headed for Civil War!

However, we’re definitely on a crash course for armed conflict, just not one separated by a geographic dividing line. Think: Bosnia, not Gettysburg.

During the US Civil War, the country was severely divided over three principal issues: states’ rights; the right of individual states to secede from the union; and “Bleeding Kansas” — whether new states would be permitted to choose whether to implement slavery or not. On virtually all other issues of law and morality, the country was in complete — Judeo-Christian, constitutional — lock-step.

Today, however, hyphenated and non-hyphenated Americans can’t even agree on the definitions of “victim” and “victimizer” — the basic building blocks of law and morality, and the foundational moral and legal tenets around which healthy civilizations must coalesce. And therein lies the difference… and the great danger. When civilizations forced to live amongst one another lack any shared foundational understandings — with radically contrasting and, on one side, ever-”evolving” views of right versus wrong, good versus bad, success versus failure, legal versus illegal — they must inevitably and unavoidably find themselves confronted with three options: Assimilate, Separate or Assassinate (i.e., go to war). History offers no other solutions that I’m aware of.

With one side armed with the Bill of Rights and the rule of law, and the other actively working to erase them, I fear we’re on a divisive and chaotic carnival ride that isn’t likely to end where it began.

Watch this space…

(PAA = President Affirmative Action, paraphrasing Thomas Sowell’s description of former President Obama)

Obfuscation Erupted in the Media

For many years the legacy media have identified firearms as the major social problem, one that has to be dealt with by restricting the rights of law-abiding citizens to acquire and retain guns. Whenever some criminal, terrorist, or lunatic blows people away using a gun, politicians and TV talking heads belabor the populace with diatribes about “gun violence” — as if guns made the decision to kill innocent people, rather than maniacs and thugs.

In recent days, however, the issue has moved up a notch to the next level of abstraction. Whenever somebody starts spraying bullets into a crowd, the media reports tell us that “gunfire erupted”. In other woods, there is no agency whatsoever involved in the slaughter — the gunfire just kind of happened, like thunder on a hot summer afternoon.

I’m not sure when “gunfire erupted” became the stock media phrase, but I first noticed it a few days ago. And this morning, while going through items for the news feed, I ran into it twice. First, from NBC News in Alabama:

Four people were killed and 32 injured in the gunfire that erupted at the celebration.

And then NBC News again, in Texas:

Payton Washington, 18, was shot in the leg and the back in the gunfire that erupted around 12:15 a.m. Tuesday in an H-E-B parking lot in Elgin, her father, Kelan Washington, said.

Maybe the phrase is in NBC’s current style book.

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

That pesky gunfire just keeps erupting! It’s like cosmic rays — it just happens. The only way to keep people safe is to take away their right to own firearms. That’ll fix it.

Now that I’m aware of the phenomenon, I’ll keep an eye out for more “gunfire erupted” news stories. If I get a large enough collection of them, I may need to do another post.

Resistance Begins With “I Will Not Comply”

The last time I wrote about the larger issues of the culture wars I talked about coercion. Not just coercion by the state — although that looms ever larger these days — but also coercion by employers against employees, by private corporations against their customers and vendors, and by various institutions such as schools and universities against their charges.

My thesis is that the real ideological divide nowadays is between those who want to coerce others to do their will and those who don’t. It’s true that the coercive impulse is more likely to be found on the left than on the right, but the division is not uniform. There are leftists who stick their necks out for libertarian principles, and there are right-wingers who are itching for the chance to force progressives to abandon their utopian efforts.

Coercion came to the fore during the Corona hysteria in 2020. Governments at all levels implemented draconian new restrictions on businesses and citizens. The new measures lacked the force of law, but were pushed through via the ramrod of nebulous “state of emergency” declarations issued by the executive. Businesses and private institutions simultaneously imposed their own rules, ejecting customers who violated social distancing and expelling students who refused to wear face masks.

It soon became clear that certain political leaders reveled in their new authoritarian powers, and enjoyed setting arbitrary rules that ordinary citizens were required to obey. Nurse Ratched types came into their own in hospitals and doctors’ offices all over the country. Ordinary citizens with authoritarian tendencies ordered complete strangers around in stores, restaurants, and other public places. Indignant apartment dwellers snitched out their neighbors to the police for violating lockdown rules. My first encounter with the zealots of the New Normal came when the guy ahead of me in line in Whole Foods screamed at me for not standing far enough away.

Then came the vaccine mandates. A huge number of people were presented with the choice of getting the needle or losing their jobs — or not being able to return to college, or not being able to get an indoor seat in a restaurant. I had to miss out on attending a performance of Beethoven’s Fifth because I was unable to present proof of vaccination.

The situation has eased somewhat in the last year or two, but the stench of coercion still hangs thick in the air. A state of emergency is even now in force in some jurisdictions, and it’s obvious that there are numerous political leaders who would welcome the opportunity to issue new totalitarian ukases if a new emergency were to arise and present them with the opportunity to roll out COVID 2.0.

The world is now divided into liberty-minded people on the one hand, and people who like to coerce — along with their willing subjects — on the other. The latter category is exemplified by those earnest citizens who wear a mask when they are out alone on the sidewalk walking their dog, or driving by themselves in their car.

Liberty-minded types are harder to spot. They don’t wear masks, even when prominent signs are posted reminding them to do it. They ignore social distancing rules. They never wipe down the handles of their shopping carts with sanitary wipes. If they have symptoms or are worried about getting sick, they stay home and drink plenty of fluids, rather than ordering others to behave in a certain way to accommodate their anxieties.

In other words, the only way we can be distinguished is by our failure to obey. That’s not always obvious now that masking is optional, so we tend to fade into the background.

At times like this, when coercion is all but universal, how do we resist?

If we don’t resist, those who coerce us will be emboldened, and impose ever-stricter limits on what we are allowed to do. The Corona Psychosis was just the beginning — it’s been a sort of trial run of authoritarianism, a mild version testing the waters in advance of the more serious totalitarian program that is planned for us.

COVID-19 was the rationale for the test, but the big push will use the “climate” to justify absolute control over every facet of our lives, implementing universal surveillance, digital currency, and artificial intelligence to monitor us and keep us in line. Eating the bugs. Fifteen minute cities. Social credit scores. Facial recognition on every corner, with every lamp post an eavesdropper. And all to Save the Planet.

How in the world we will be able to resist that? Where do we start?

Resistance begins when you say: “I will not comply.” With whatever it is — wearing the mask, eating the bugs, showing your vax pass, climbing into the cattle car.

Each act of resistance is a deliberate decision not to go along with a demand for compliance, however small the required behavior may be. Wearing a mask and staying at home are obvious examples from the COVID madness. New ones, more draconian ones, will undoubtedly arise as the “climate crisis” sets in during the run-up to 2030.

But not all of them will be that clear-cut, and not all of them will be easy. Refusing to drive a car with a “kill switch”, for example, may force you to travel by bicycle or on foot. Refusing to present a vax passport (or whatever the new digital pass is) may keep you from being able to buy groceries. Refusing to use digital currency may keep you from buying anything at all, except on the black market.

Part of “I will not comply” is the acceptance of the consequences of non-compliance. Refusing to pay your taxes, for example, is likely to invite severe consequences. If hundreds of thousands or millions of people do the same thing, enforcement will be dicey, and you may be able to skate by. But if you’re the only person who burns your 1040, and you get caught, you will be made an example of. You have to accept that.

Saying “I will not comply” means not waiting for your elected representatives to pass a law that prevents the government from issuing this or that diktat. It means remembering that your constitutional rights exist, regardless of any blatantly illegitimate state legislation or executive order that attempts to countermand them. As tyranny descends upon the land, your liberty may be taken from you, but not your freedom, which is God-given. Freedom lies between your ears and behind your eyes. Even a rifle butt in the back of the head cannot take it from you.

Non-compliance is a difficult habit to learn. Most of us are polite, and would prefer to go along with whatever civil society expects of us. Saying “I will not comply” goes against the grain, especially when the consequences for doing so are severe.

You’d rather wait for that law to be passed, or for the governor to have a change of heart, but in the meantime you get a kill switch in your car, your kid gets “transitioned” in school, and your credit card won’t let you buy any more meat if you exceed your monthly limit.

Widespread non-compliance is the only way to forestall tyranny. If enough people in enough places say “I will not comply,” then the coercion will fail. There are far more of us, the non-compliant, than there are would-be tyrants.

Shootout at an Indiana Mall

There was a shooting at a mall in Indiana yesterday evening. The gunman managed to kill three people before a mall patron with a concealed carry permit took him out.

It turns out the mall was a gun-free zone. So if the guy who neutralized the shooter had been a good, obedient citizen and left his gun in the car, the perp might have killed 25 or 30 people before armed LEOs took him out. Or maybe more, if those cops were Uvalde-type “heroes”.

Then the story would have earned screaming headlines all across the country, with a national outcry for stricter gun control.

The identities of the perp and the Good Samaritan have now been released. The shooter was a 20-year-old named Jonathan Douglas Sapirman, and the guy who took him out was a 22-year-old named Elisjsha Dicken. Both of them are white, so this story will probably die fairly quickly.

Disarming the AfD

The following report from Germany is a reminder of why a clearly-written fundamental right to keep and bear arms is so important in a constitutional republic.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Junge Freiheit. The translator’s comments are in square brackets:

Interior Ministry wants to disarm AfD members


Thuringia’s Minister of the Interior Georg Maier (SPD) is apparently planning to withdraw the gun license from all AfD [Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany] members in the Free State [the official status of Thuringia], Der Spiegel reports, citing an internal letter. Accordingly, the ministry has informed its employees about the establishment of a working group on “Weapons and Extremists”. [I’m pretty sure that Antifa is exempt from this, and that they are getting some of those weapons the Ukrainians are selling on the black market.]

The “AG WaffEx” is to be located at the state administration office and help local authorities “in the processing of relevant cases”. Specifically, it is used against AfD members who, for example, legally own weapons as hunters or marksmen. The letter says that “appropriate revocation procedures should be initiated against these in principle.”

Sharp criticism from the AfD state spokesman

As justification for this rigorous approach, Maier uses the assessment of the Thuringian Office for the Protection of the Constitution that the state association of the AfD in Thuringia is “proven to be right-wing extremist.” AfD Thuringia is suing against this classification in the report for the protection of the constitution.

AfD state spokesman Stefan Möller criticized the actions of the interior minister. He accused him of using “the specially-adapted weapons law” “as a substitute criminal law against law-abiding hunters and marksmen in the AfD.” Maier is thus continuing what he started with an “abuse of service law to destroy the existence of officials close to the AfD.” “Maier chooses this method because his SPD sees no chance in a fair political debate against AfD Thuringia.”

“We only abide by the law and implement the weapons law,” Maier told Spiegel as a justification. Since the law was tightened in 2020, authorities have had to query the “reliability” of a gun owner with the respective constitutional protection agency, in this case with the Office for the Protection of the Constitutional Protection of Thuringia, which is part of the Ministry of the Interior.

Lies of Omission 2021

TL Davis has updated his important documentary “Lies of Omission” for 2021. The full movie may be watched on Rumble; see the links below.

Lies of Omission 2021

by TL Davis

Due to a technical problem with the file stored with the distributor we had to do an update on Lies of Omission. In review, there was so much good information still relevant on the film, especially in the wake of the 2020 election and the pandemic (plandemic/scamdemic), that we decided if we were going to go through the headache, why not update the film?

A “director’s cut” so to speak. We called it Lies of Omission 2021 and added, never-before-seen footage from the original interviews. At the same time, we went to a studio and enlisted the help of their staff to increase the production quality.

All in all, though a bit shorter, Lies of Omission 2021 is a better film with a cleaner storyline and smoother, better graphics. It tells a slightly different story from the original, too. What was relevant in 2017, is no longer, and what was not readily apparent, like tyranny and communism, is.

This issues are now openly recognized by a greater share of the world’s population. Governments worldwide have made Lies of Omission 2021 more relevant and with a much wider market than it ever would have had independently. It wasn’t until the governments demonstrated every aspect of communism and tyranny that it came into its own.

Just before the last quarterly report, Lies of Omission had been seen in 12 countries on 5 different channels. An increase in countries and channels from before. We think, with your help, it can finally be used for the red pill film it was intended to be.

It’s free on Rumble, but let the ads run to help us recoup a little bit of what is still in the red on this project. If you watch this version and agree that it’s much more polished than the original and equally as valuable, push it out to friends and family, share it on social media everywhere. Link it on your sites and help us get the word out.

The more views it gets and the longer the ads run, the better it is for us, but really, this is the sort of film right now that can truly make a difference. Of course, people still have to stand up for their rights, but we feel this offers enough of a consolidation of thought that it edges them ever closer to that position.

A Handgun Against an Army

The original version of following essay by the late Mike Vanderboegh was written before the turn of the millennium. Ten years later, when he wrote this revised version (posted at the old WRSA site), he noted that it had stood the test of time. Another thirteen years have passed since then, and as Spicy Time draws closer the relevance of his words is even greater.

At the suggestion of WRSA, I am reposting the entire essay here. To see the rest of the illustrations and the embedded video, visit the WRSA post.

A Handgun Against an Army — Ten Years After

by Mike Vanderboegh

July 29, 2008

Almost a decade ago now, I penned “A Letter From Hagood’s Crossroads, Alabama,” subtitled “What Good Can a Handgun Do Against an Army?”

Over the years it has proven to be the single most popular piece I have ever written. To this day, I get emails and snail mails from folks who have stumbled across it for the first time, thanking me for writing it. It is a humbling experience for a scribbler such as myself to realize that he has struck a chord in his audience — humbling and gratifying.

Still, I have always meant to rework “Handgun” to correct some of the minor errors and irritating flaws that always occur whenever you whip out a topical opinion piece, as I did this one. For example, one of the things that always bothered me was that I was forced to paraphrase Hopper explaining the facts of life to his marauding gang of ATF/biker/bandido grasshoppers in “A Bug’s Life.” In the re-issue below, I correct that. Indeed, thanks to technological advances in the intervening years, I am now able to give you the YouTube link so you can HEAR Hopper’s presentation of the dialectic of tyranny yourself with just a click of the mouse.


Another area requiring work was the wolf-sheep metaphor, which if I had just hewed to the wisdom of my grandpa imparted to me years ago would have more properly been (as I have corrected it below) a wolf-sheep-sheepdog metaphor. Don’t ask me why I did it that way the first time. I wrote it, as most of my pieces back then and since, at one sitting in the wee hours of the morning.

And equally importantly, without the steadying hand of a good editor. (Here, I tip my hat to my friend David Codrea.)

In truth, for something that has been so well received for so long, at the time I gave it no more thought or care than any of the other many things I wrote during the Era of the Clintonista-Militia Cold War. Yet it is “Handgun” that has, apparently, stood the test of time. I will explore why I think this is in the afterword to this reissue.

For now, let me present again, with slight updated revision, “What Good Can A Handgun Do Against an Army?,” with many thanks to my friends — Peter at Western Rifle Shooters Association and Chris at Mindful Musings — for the firm nudge prompting me to do so. — MBV

“What Good Can A Handgun Do Against an Army?”

A friend of mine forwarded me a question a friend of his had posed:

“If/when our Federal Government comes to pilfer, pillage, plunder our property and destroy our lives, what good can a handgun do against an army with advanced weaponry, tanks, missiles, planes, or whatever else they might have at their disposal to achieve their nefarious goals? (I’m not being facetious: I accept the possibility that what happened in Germany, or similar, could happen here; I’m just not sure that the potential good from an armed citizenry in such a situation outweighs the day-to-day problems caused by masses of idiots who own guns.)”

If I may, I’d like to try to answer that question. I certainly do not think the writer facetious for asking it. The subject is a serious one to which I have given much research and considerable thought. I believe that upon the answer to this question depends the future of our Constitutional republic, our liberty and perhaps our lives.

My friend Aaron Zelman, one of the founders of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, told me once:

“If every Jewish and anti-nazi family in Germany had owned a Mauser rifle and twenty rounds of ammunition AND THE WILL TO USE IT (emphasis supplied — MBV), Adolf Hitler would be a little-known footnote to the history of the Weimar Republic.”

Note well that phrase: “and the will to use it,” for the simply-stated question, “What good can a handgun do against an army?” is in fact a complex one and must be answered at length and carefully.

It is a military question.

It is also a political question.

But above all it is a moral question which strikes to the heart of what makes men free, and what makes them slaves.

First, let’s answer the military question.

Most military questions have both a strategic and a tactical component. Let’s first consider the tactical.

A friend of mine owns an instructive piece of history. It is a small, crude pistol [see the image at the top of this post], made out of sheet-metal stampings by the U.S. during World War II. While it fits in the palm of your hand and is a slowly-operated, single-shot arm, its powerful .45 caliber projectile will kill a man with brutal efficiency. With a short, smooth-bore barrel it can reliably kill only at point blank ranges, so its use requires the will (brave or foolhardy) to get in close before firing. It is less a soldier’s weapon than an assassin’s tool. The U.S. manufactured them by the millions during the war, not for our own forces but rather to be air-dropped behind German lines to resistance units in occupied Europe and Asia. They cost exactly two dollars and ten cents to make.

Crude and slow (the fired case had to be knocked out of the breech by means of a little wooden dowel, a fresh round procured from the storage area in the grip and then manually reloaded and cocked. It was so wildly inaccurate it couldn’t hit the broad side of a French barn at 50 meters, but to the Resistance man or woman who had no firearm it still looked pretty darn good.

The theory and practice of it was this: First, you approach a German sentry with your little pistol hidden in your coat pocket and, with Academy-award sincerity, ask him for a light for your cigarette (or the time the train leaves for Paris, or if he wants to buy some non-army-issue food or a half-hour with your “sister”). When he smiles and casts a nervous glance down the street to see where his Sergeant is, you blow his brains out with your first and only shot, then take his rifle and ammunition. Your next few minutes are occupied with “getting out of Dodge,” for such critters generally go around in packs. After that (assuming you evade your late benefactor’s friends) you keep the rifle and hand your little pistol to a fellow Resistance fighter so he can go get his own rifle.

Or, maybe, you then use your rifle to get a submachine gun from the Sergeant when he comes running. Perhaps you get very lucky and pick up a light machine gun, two boxes of ammunition and a haversack of hand grenades. With two of the grenades and the expenditure of a half-a-box of ammunition at a hasty roadblock the next night, you and your friends get a truck full of arms and ammunition. (Some of the cargo is sticky with “Boche” blood, but you don’t mind, not terribly.)

Bury my Heart at Howard Springs

Update: A reader in Australia sends the following clarification about Howard Springs:

Howard Springs is not a ‘quarantine camp’ but rather an evacuation camp in keeping with a long held strategy to remove certain elements of society to safety in the event of war, civil unrest or in this case, disease. These plans have been in place in one shape or form since the close of WW2.

Over the last two years a large concentration health camp has been established in Howard Springs, Australia. It was constructed as a facility to quarantine Australians who returned from overseas during the early days of the COVID-19 lockdowns, and has been expanded since for the internment of unvaccinated citizens and those who test positive for the Wuhan Coronavirus, plus their families and contacts.

Most recently the Australian army (ADF) has been tasked with rounding up people who have been identified as risks and transporting them to Howard Springs.

A longtime reader who uses the handle “the lone rider” sends this brief summary of what is happening at the Howard Springs camp, and its larger ramifications:

I thought people should know of the potential connections with Howard Springs. This goes beyond Covid to the whole central planning/climate agenda and is very worrisome.

Recent news that 38 people were taken by soldiers to the Howard Springs camp in Australia is alarming.

What is more alarming is the puffy prose surrounding the ‘sustainability’ and ‘stylish’ and ‘innovative’ nature of this ‘village’. The group that runs the Howard Springs camp for the Australian government, AECOM, has business interests from Dubai to California ports. Their website touts “delivering a better world through program management” and “Delivering sustainable legacies, our environmental, social, and governance (ESG) strategy.” This company is on board with Agenda 2030 for sure, and the buzzwords of that top-down central planning agenda are front and center on its website. They specifically support and are involved in the COP26 climate summit Biden just attended recently.

It should be worrisome that the President of the United States is attending a summit supported by a corporation which manages concentration camps.

This should not only be worrisome, it also makes one wonder: are these camps are merely detention centers to threaten people with for purposes of control during the Covid situation, or worse, are they a model which the government — in Australia or elsewhere — intends to foist on society at large and everyone outside the camp walls, leaning on the excuse of climate change? The explicit touting of COP26 and the ‘sustainability’ agenda on the website of the corporation who runs the camp makes this link even more clear and alarming.

Michael Gunner is the premier of Northern Territory, the Australian state where the Howard Springs camp is located. Mr. Gunner has made a name for himself as the most dictatorial and fascist of Australia’s premiers, and that’s quite an accomplishment in a country where so many pocket Hitlers are currently terrorizing their captive citizens.

In the following video Mr. Gunner makes it clear that anyone who is pro-freedom must be considered anti-vax.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for uploading this clip:

On multiple occasions Michael Gunner has spoken about the co-operation of members of the aboriginal community in Northern Territory, who are the ostensible beneficiaries of his forcible relocation policies.

In the following video (hat tip Conservative Tree House), a spokesman for a group of aborigines begs to differ with Mr. Gunner. He maintains that the ADF is not just relocating people against their will, but is also coercing them into being vaccinated. Furthermore, he asserts that foreign soldiers and police officers are included in the squads that roust people out of their homes and take them to the camp:

I don’t need to remind you that what is currently underway in the totalitarian dystopia that Australia has become is a dry run for what will eventually happen in the country formerly known as the United States of America. One important fact to take note of is that Australians are by and large unarmed, but the same is not true of American citizens.

This is a distinction which may eventually make a difference when Spicy Time arrives in earnest.

What Would Vladimir Ilyich Do?

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post about FedGov infiltration in advance of the “Justice for J6” rally in D.C. on September 18. As it happened, fortunately, not many people participated in the rally. Some of those who attended said it looked like the media, the feds, and the Capitol Police outnumbered the actual protestors.

Donald Trump helped discourage his supporters from showing up by telling them they were being set up, which of course they were. A hilarious photo of a group of look-alike “undercover” federal agents inspired hundreds of memes. With their shorts, their shades, their haircuts, and their identical watches, they looked like they had been 3D-printed using the same template.

This wasn’t the first time the feds have massively infiltrated a “deplorable” event in an attempt to set up the patriots, and it certainly won’t be the last. However, it’s encouraging that the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy seems to have wised up about what’s being done to them.

The responses to my post on infiltrators prompted further thoughts on the topic. However, before I get to the meat of this essay, I’ll post a selection of the comments from that earlier post, followed by expanded versions of my replies.

Charley Waite said:

Reminds me of Gen Joseph Johnston facing the Union advance at Richmond. He retreated and retreated and retreated because the circumstances were not favorable until he found himself “at the gates of Richmond” about to lose. At what point does “cool heads” keep waiting until it’s almost too late?

Our problem is that we can’t assemble the troops into a force large enough for a general to command. Anything above squad size has been infiltrated.

Any operation that we plan is known in advance to the enemy. Every detail of strategy and tactics is passed back to Leviathan, which then marshals all its immense resources to counter us.

And Leviathan is very skilled at psychological warfare. That’s what we’re seeing now. The heavy-handed push for a forced vax is a deliberate psy-ops strategy designed to bring the patriots onto the field bearing arms, with every fifth man being a federal government plant.

Any general — if one ever arises — will have to take those facts into account. He will have to design his operation knowing that every detail of the plan will immediately be relayed to the leaders of the opposing force, which is much better funded and supplied and has been wargaming this situation for decades.

I have no idea how a successful operation might be organized under such conditions, but I do know that any plan that does not take the above into account is doomed to failure.

This hypothetical general has a handful of trusted subordinates that he knows are not enemy agents. Below that level in the chain of command, he is certain that he is riddled with informers. How does he deal with that fact?

I realize I’m being a broken record, but COUNTERINTELLIGENCE must be the primary focus. No large, concerted, coordinated action can be undertaken successfully without addressing this issue.

If I might ask, because I see this advice a lot — that is, wait, it is not yet time for armed resistance — when will it be. It is like Picard and the Borg — they advance, we fall back. When will it be time? Will it be too late? At some point patriots will need to do things that make them look evil — they will have no choice.

The time for action is when the infiltrators have been identified and neutralized. By “neutralized” I don’t mean killed; I mean rendered harmless by feeding them nothing but innocuous information — or better yet disinformation — to be reported back to their superiors.

Until you neutralize the informers, planning meaningful action that has even a remote chance of success is simply impossible.

A corollary to all this is to stop using smart phones and similar devices for communications, except for sending false information as a diversion. Over the last few years it has become abundantly clear that all standard forms of electronic information are fully available to federal intelligence agencies. You might as well just phone it in to the FBI.

I consider cell phones to be baby monitors. If you have one, and the battery is in it, it can report your location and relay audio, even if it’s turned off. Those features are highly prized by the CCP. When Chinese dissidents meet, they not only turn their phones off and leave them in a separate room, they take the batteries out.

WRSA frequently posts links to detailed resources on the use of more traditional forms of communication, which may be cumbersome to use, but are far more secure.

The Bundy Ranch stand-off is a situation which shows what happens when FREEFOR surprises FED/LEVIATHAN. NO ONE on the FED side expected the numbers of FREEFOR people that showed up. YES, they were infiltrated, but most of the infiltrators were eventually neutered.
LEVIATHAN was COMPLETELY taken aback at the numbers.

MANY of the FED troopies had never seen opposition and CERTAINLY were HIGHLY unfamiliar with the view from the OTHER end of the scope when FREEFOR folks zeroed in on them.

We need to keep FREEFOR actions to be a surprise every time. A surprise of SOME sort, whether of numbers, or character, or venue or design. GOTTA keep them on their toes.


The events at the Bundy Ranch took the feds by surprise. However, they learned their lesson that time, and planned the next one carefully. That’s why the Malheur Wildlife Refuge fiasco happened the way it did.

From the first-hand reporting at the time, I remember that the groups at the ranch knew they were infiltrated, and had sussed out at least some of the plants. The infiltration wasn’t thorough enough to allow the feds to control the situation.

By the time we got to January 6, 2021, however, the FBI had learned to play the patriot movement like a fiddle.

After thinking about these issues for a while, I realize that I’ve been doing a disservice to all those groups who have dealt with the issue of infiltration shrewdly and effectively. I’m certain they’re out there.

Since I’m a lone operator, I don’t know any of them. I’m acquainted with a few patriots here and there, but I know nothing about their groups. And that’s the way it should be — I don’t want to know. If they’re any good at operational security, they’ll keep such information from me, which is what I prefer. That way, when the sunglassed operatives from the Bureau for the Protection of the Republic show up and drive the bamboo shoots under my fingernails, I won’t be able to tell them anything.

Moreover, if skilled patriot groups are thoughtful about what they do, they’re invisible. They blend into the background of the communities in which they live. They don’t show up at the Capitol and do stupid things. They just train quietly and methodically, preparing for the grim time they know will eventually come. Why would they expose themselves by saying, “Hey, Baron, you’re wrong — we’re not infiltrated by the feds.”?

So here’s to the pros, who know how to do the job right. Skol!

Book Review: Tactical Wisdom

Tactical Wisdom

by Joe Dolio

Reviewed by Jack Lawson
author of the Civil Defense Manual

Rarely does a book catch my attention like Tactical Wisdom. It could have been authored by my alter ego. But the author, Joe Dolio, has created what I consider a companion and must-read book to my book the Civil Defense Manual. His book Tactical Wisdom TW-01 Baseline Training Manual has almost every procedure in it that my book has… presented in a concise and superb manner. He also has a great writing style.

The man clearly must be a genius, if by his definition of the word, we think alike. For those unaware of what I’m talking about, you’d have to read Joe’s opening line in his review of my book. But Joe and I, regardless of our level of intelligence — and I’m definitely not a genius — agree on the way to preparedness, survival and organizing with others for strength through numbers for protection.

This review is not a ‘trade off’ knee-jerk evaluation of the Tactical Wisdom Series from me because Joe wrote a generous review for me… because anyone who knows me well, knows that I won’t praise a poor presentation, incompetence and/or misinformation for any reason. The fact is that this Marine Corps Veteran has written a classic in the Tactical Wisdom Base Line Training Manual.

I know that Joe is more intelligent than I am by one item, as he quotes The Ultimate Base Line Book — the Bible — in his book. That incredible Guidebook that I seemed to have wandered away from, despite being brought up by it. Some people that know me would say: “Lawson, you reading the Bible!?”

Well, I am drifting back to the Bible and Christianity… probably from the insanity to which illogic is bringing our society. I am not reading it because “I’m looking for a loophole” for my transgressions, like W.C. Fields said when one of his friends questioned him, astounded that he was reading the Bible on his deathbed. I have a pretty good idea where I’m going — and it won’t be pretty — but I still hold out hope for Valhalla.

That being said, I believe our exclusion of God, his Son and the Holy Spirit by many ‘enlightened’ and ‘elite’ people is the basis of the ongoing destruction of the fabric of society, decency, the family, free enterprise (instead of fascist corporations), individual rights and Constitutional America.

When the huge egos and twisted values of those who become legends in their own minds represents the aggregate essence of a world of peoples, in lieu of the righteousness and principles of an Immortal and Benevolent Higher Power, mankind is well on the way to catastrophe — if not extinction.

I have read just about every survival book out there. Good ones… and bad ones. Fiction and non-fiction, handbooks, manuals and riveting fiction plots, some with excellent common-sense survival information and storylines. And then there are those with the ‘expert’s fantasy’ on how to survive.

What started me off was the late British author John Christopher’s 1957 science fiction novel No Blade of Grass, first published as The Death of Grass, and made into a movie in 1970. A post-apocalypse story where food crops fail, and the world descends into chaos.

But novels cannot convey to you all the necessary methods and explain all the critical information on preparedness and survival, no matter how good a story they are. However, novels will get you thinking in the right direction, and sometimes point out stark issues that the imagination cannot conceive of in normal civility.

You Have Less Than a Year

Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan sends this follow-up to his previous essay about the dystopian regime that now governs the Former United States since the Investiture of the Puppet last month.

You have less than a year

by H. Numan

Ladies and gentlemen, you’ve just witnessed a coup. I wrote about it a few days ago. Plenty of people still don’t understand that the rules of the game have changed. Permanently. So I’ll expand on my previous essay, in the hope that the message gets through. You have less than a year to correct the situation. This is a grim and very dark essay. If you can’t tolerate it, sorry. Better read something else. Don’t continue reading.

Let’s start with the coup. It certainly wasn’t a revolution. Revolutions are usually more violent or come with force to some extent. The Democrat Party didn’t do that. They planned, many years in advance, a fraud to gain full control. It was no accident that mail-in votes and harvested ballots gave Biden, now president for (the remainder of his) life, the presidency. The vote, in general terms, has been diluted for many years. You should have seen this coming — but nobody did. It’s not a coincidence that the DNC, wherever possible, wanted no ID checks and more ways to vote. Not because voter ID is racist, but because more people can vote the ‘right’ way. They have fought with success to give everybody they need a vote. Including dead people. The trick worked. Suddenly the bombshell exploded. Now it is too late.

Not really too late, but you have to act. Fast. REALLY fast! You do have an advantage over Nazi Germany, but a very small one. Biden and his DNC are not Hitler and the NSDAP. Hitler didn’t hesitate for a second to use extreme force, and built many concentration camps. As quickly as possible. Given their background, that is something Biden and the DNC will hesitate to do.

Why this coup? Well, despite my dislike for your Democrat Party, they are not Nazis. Socialist in some way? No doubt. But not — yet — true international socialists. At the moment the old party hacks control the party. All they wanted was to be in power forever. Now they are. Their major problem is to remain in power forever. And that requires a real socialist, or — as they will describe it — democratic policy. You have less than a year to stop it.

Biden is now in full control of your parliament, both houses. That means he can — and bloody well will! — write any kind of legislation he wants. Biden himself is not a Hitler. More like one of Hitler’s more slippery henchmen, like Martin Bormann. Always hovering in the background, filling his pockets. Just enough in the limelight to be noticed and to be powerful enough to hand out favors. But he definitely is no Hitler. Like Hitler, Biden will have to consolidate his power. That is a process he can complete in about one year. That’s all the time you have left. Less than a year. After that, better sign up for DNC membership. If they will still accept you.

Please don’t parrot empty meaningless slogans, such as: they can pry my guns from my cold dead hands. Very few people will actually do that. Pretty soon a new mass shooting incident will happen. No need to arrange for one; mass shootings happen several times every year in the USA. All the DNC has to do is wait for the next one. Then Harris Biden will act decisively and ban most handguns. Just about everybody will hand in their guns, without a fuss. That’s what happened in Australia in 1996. The government said: That’s enough. No more guns! It was enough, and there are no more guns in Australia. Why is it an empty slogan? Because most people like to live. Given the choice between handing in firearms or facing at least a very lengthy jail term, they choose handing in their weapons. If only because they have a family to take care of.

That is exactly what will happen, in a few months’ time. What about those ‘pry my gun’ people? Well, America is not Australia, and no longer democratic. America is now a Democratic Republic. Which means your police will simply send in a SWAT team, and blast them to kingdom come. Live on TV. It will be all over the media. Not as martyrs, but as brave police officers getting rid of dangerous hysterical fascists. The remainder of the pry-my-gun people will get the message and quietly turn in their guns. Willingly even, as the media will go apes**t about really dangerous fascists refusing to obey Big Biden the law.
