Gov SWAT Teams Target “Rugged Individuals” Who Grow Their Own Food, Produce Their Own Electricity


This article was written by Mac Slavo and originally published at

The dream of many Americans is to get out of the hustle and bustle of the daily city grind. And what better dream to have then to move your family outside of city limits to the countryside so that you can grow your own food, produce your own electricity with solar power, and live outside the purview of an ever expanding government apparatus?

That was the goal for hundreds of residents living on the outskirts of Los Angeles. Many own their land outright and have been living on it for decades without so much as a peep from their local government. They’ve built their homes using whatever means they had available to them. They planted their own fruits and vegetables. They even set up their own personal power production stations using solar panels and miniature wind farms.

And they’ve lived peacefully without violating the rights of those around them and leaving a very small “carbon footprint” to boot. For all intents and purposes, they achieved a life of independence and freedom.

But the tentacles of tyranny are everywhere and no one is protected from their grasp.

Recently, agents of the Los Angeles county government started paying visits to these rugged individualists. They claimed they were “here to help,” as one resident puts it. But, as is generally the case when the government comes knocking, they were there for exactly the opposite.

What was once a dream come true for many quickly turned into the new American nightmare.

Code enforcement agents for the county showed up in droves. But they didn’t come alone. Along with them came heavily armed “Nuisance Abatement Teams” who raided the homes and land of these peaceful residents as they would those of a terrorist.

(Pictured: Armored Nuisance Abatement Team – similar vehicles are in use across the United States)

The collection of rugged individualists who [want to live here] are being chased away.

Last year the county began performing unannounced inspections on his property.

Gallow says he cooperated with the county – clearing brush, then moving his shed, then getting rid of his motor home.

Finally, the county made a demand that shocked him.

“They told me… you have to get off the property. I said get off the property?’ They said ‘yeah, you can’t live here.’ ”

Gallow says county officials told him that neighbors, whom they would not identify, had complained about unsightly structures on his property.

He could keep his land, they told him, but would not be allowed to live on it.

“I said, for what? My closest neighbor is half a mile away. We’re not living in Beverly Hills here, this is my home. All of sudden you got police at my front door – bullet proof vests, guns, and then they surrounded the place. Everything I worked for was just melting away from me.”

“I don’t know where I’m going to go.”

Mr. Gallow is not alone. County enforcement officials with militarized Nuisance Abatement Teams in tow have made similar threats to other residents, ordering them to destroy everything on their properties and to get off their own land.

Watch this shocking, yet unsurprising account of the plight of these Americans who want nothing more than to be left alone:


In the new America, everyone is criminal.





  1. I would tell them to make me move. And to be sure to bring all the armored vehicles they can find in addition to a lot of body bags…

  2. Whatever happened to Officer Friendly and the property rights
    of free Americans.

    If Americans think that there is any shortage of individuals
    who will dress up in full battle gear and show up in front of
    their houses in armored vehicles they should think again.
    And before coming to your house with their sun glasses on they
    probably will pump up their brain cells in the gym to their
    maximum testosterone levels, since that is what they operate
    on. But maybe they should also borrow some of the main battle
    tanks from Fort Hood that were brought to Waco, TX to use on
    the women and children at David Koresh’s Compound.

  3. Sooner or later the American people will wake up on a large scale then the tyrannicals will figure out to late they have awakened a sleeping giant

  4. I don’t believe my brother Oath Keeper’s aforementioned comments are useful.

    So . . . what’s the plan guys?

    “How’s the County of Los Angeles intending to enforce its claims on the God-given private rights of property?”

    The picture above shows a City Police Vehicle. Does the Sheriff of Los Angeles know about this aggression by the County?

    What County code/law/regulation says you cannot live on your own land?

  5. The “Officials” want everyone on the electric grid.
    Then they can spy on you with your wireless internet cable modem,
    electric company smart meters, cell phones, mail service.
    They want you in the city so they can tax you.
    They don’t want you to feed yourself because they can’t make money
    off of you.
    Officials want you in town with house numbers so they can harass, fine, tax.
    and round your ass up easily.
    When you are in a city and they shut down the roads and trucks, a city
    becomes a death camp. Very few assets required to contain. Secure perimeter.
    Shut down electric power. Shut down water. Shut down sewer. Shut down roads and trucks.
    Contain the perimeter for a few months, 3/4 of population wiped out. Mop up or just wait
    a few more months.
    Our country has already been taken over. You folks just can’t accept the obvious.
    Criminals are in charge.
    US Generals are being purged by Obamunista regime.
    Nuclear weapons have been moved without following standard protocol.
    False Flag planned? Then martial law?
    The enemy is systematically preparing for genocide.
    They are forward deploying ammo, equipment, armor vehicles, setting up surveillance
    technologies. They are preparing to control, round up, then murder.
    Americans are their enemy. They want absolute control. Then genocide.
    Yes it can happen here. China, Russia, Ukraine, Nazi Germany, Cambodia.

  6. @ Fubar905210

    You’re preaching to the choir here pal.
    Your condescending and demoralizing missive is neither useful nor helpful. You’re not asking the right questions and nor are you providing any creative remedies or means to resist.

    So what’s your point?

  7. Regarding:
    “Fubar905210 Says:
    They are preparing to control, round up, then murder. Americans
    are their enemy. They want absolute control. Then genocide. Yes
    it can happen here. China, Russia, Ukraine, Nazi Germany, Cambodia”

    Thanks for remembering the Ukrainian genocide, or democide, or
    whatever “label” one wants to put on the murder of millions of people.
    But then we all know that it was a natural famine in the country
    that was once known as the “Bread Basket of Europe”. The “natural”
    famine, starvation, didn’t just happen without the aid of thousands
    and thousands of “individuals” who were just following orders. It’s
    all really very simple –just get enough people to follow orders.

  8. Mr. Bozarth,
    First Step: Recognition of a problem. People must ADMIT Problem.
    Second Step: Once recognition has occurred, THEN an effective solution can be found.

    We have a problem. The enemy is in control of the command structure.
    There is a real reason Obamunist is purging US military officers.
    Problem must be brought to Light and Recognize. ACKNOWLEDGEMENT.
    Then hopefully by waking up the masses to the problem.
    A Collective solution can be found.

    It is IMPOSSIBLE to FORM up, RESIST, and fight an enemy
    if people fail to recognize that they have been over run.

    Third Step: We MUST FORM up. Take it upon ourselves.
    We can NEVER surrender arms or be REGISTERED.

    Obamunista is the commander in chief at the top.
    This man and the ones that control him are destroying our NATION.
    They are putting into place systems to control masses, then eliminate.

    My Intent is NOT to demoralize. But to Recognize.
    Then Organize meaningful countermeasures.
    *Not Registering Firearms or Obamacare Registration
    is one “Remedy to passively Resist.”
    *Being a town crier and attempting to wake up the masses is another “Remedy.”
    Remedy: Passive Resistance does work: Poland. East Germany. India. Recently Iceland.
    All used passive resistance SUCCESSFULLY. Doesn’t that BOOST your moral?
    But this requires an awakening of the masses
    and peaceful non compliance on a BROAD scale. Do Not Obey.

    Mr. Tom: Is correct. Inform. Unite. Stand together against the enemy
    as our Founding Fathers in 1776.
    Connecticut MUST resist.
    NY must resist.
    California must resist.
    All must Resist the so called gun registration laws.
    Do not stand in those lines. Do Not Register. Do NOT Obey.
    Remedy: Protest LOUDLY as a LARGE GROUP. Why do you people go along?
    Remedy: Obamacare registration must be resisted by ignoring it and IMPEACHMENT.

    Several representatives pushing the gun control agenda have been recalled.
    We have won a few skirmishes. When we Fight Back we can and Do win.

    We are Not Demoralized.
    Remedy: We prepare. At the same time we organize and FORM up.
    Remedy: We Stand Together. Together we have a good chance of Victory.

    Now for your solutions, remedies?

  9. Fubar905210 is correct and I would add it’s way past time to starve the beast.The list of usurpations is long and only going to get worst. The stuff that is coming out is outrageous, my family and most friends are still a sleep. I’ve got a small group that I trust and we have been very busy preparing.God bless the Oath Keepers for all that you do.

    “…my family and most friends are still a sleep.”

    As far as I am concerned the NUMBER ONE issue is to
    wake Americans up. We don’t need to wake all Americans
    up, but we need to wake a lot of Americans up.

    Americans need to understand that “THEIR” future and
    “THEIR” liberties are disappearing as the Constitution
    and the Bill of Rights are going the way of the
    dinosaur. They need to understand that there is no
    “running room” — none, zero, when the Constitution
    disappears. They need to know that THEY are not any
    different from other peoples of the world that have
    lived and gone into slavery, and that it can and will
    happen here if they stand aside as their Constitutional
    rights are being taken from them day by day by a
    dictatorial government.

    If you feel discouraged come to Seattle and try talking
    to some Seattle residents.

  11. @ Remember the Alamo
    Thanks for the words of encouragement and frustration detection. I agree with you on we need to wake up a lot of Americans and not all. I’m running out of ideas on how to break through the propaganda machine. I have come to the conclusion that people just don’t care or want to face reality. These people ( family members included) scare me as much as the traitors do. How do we get through to them?

    Molon Labe!!

    “How do we get through to them?”

    All of them? –You can’t. As you say they either
    “don’t care”, or won’t “face (the hard) reality”.
    Or they are just plain ignorant of what’s coming,
    if they do nothing.

    Some of them? –Yes.

    We give our fellow Americans the truth in the
    simplest terms possible and explain to them what
    the “consequences” of their indifference and inaction
    in defending their freedoms and liberties will be
    for them, their families, and their fellow Americans.

    We have to, unfortunately, accept the reality that we
    can’t “get through to them” all. –Be we should keep
    trying, and never give up.

    Best regards.

    Probably the biggest enemy of liberty is indifference by
    those who already have it. –They take it for granted.

  13. Oregon as most states have the same laws
    Takes three people to complain
    Then you must leave your home
    Apparently if property is owned by

    Single female any adult age the rules do not apply

    County agent kept asking are you married . At least 7 times in two years this action finaly stoped
    All because she is “SINGLE” female .property owner and never later paying her property TAX .

  14. Wow…Shocking but not even remotely surprising. I know what I would do in this situation and I would certainly be dead for doing it. At what price liberty..???

  15. I have been listening to this since NDAA 2012, and it gets worse every month. You guys that say that most don’t care are right, I sure know I have tried. THEY WILL CARE WHEN THEY GET RUN OVER!, but then it will be to late for them. I am not getting any younger and if I am to be of any good I am ready to get the show on the road. PROBLEM, WE HAVE NO LEADERS.

  16. I am currently in the military, and I am telling you guys, they will need to bring in foreign troops to physically harass the American people. As an O3, no orders are comming from me to rip apart Americans in half with 50 calibur rounds. My O4 plus brethren can respectfully go straight to hell where they belong if they order this of me. Not going to happen. I would rather join my fellow country men in the camps. Death before evil.

  17. “Death before evil.”

    From a man who went to the camps:

    “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”
    ― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

  18. Respectfully to above post. No one deserved the horror.
    Most good people are just child like and do not
    understand what they are facing. They can’t believe
    that Maniacs could do such a
    horrible thing as Genocide.
    The current jester in chief and those
    who pull his strings are fully capable of Genocide.
    As a student of history you see patterns evolve.
    All the signs are there for the intent to mass murder.
    What other logical explanation is there?
    Please prove me wrong. I want to be wrong.
    Impeach while we can. Impeach.

  19. Regarding Post 21:

    “Please prove me wrong.” –I can’t, and I too want to be wrong.

    “No one deserved the horror.”

    I agree with you!

    And I really don’t know what Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn meant.
    But what befell the Russian people under communism was an
    unbelievable, hellish, horror beyond any nightmare that a
    person could ever have.

    But I suspect that he was faulting himself for not doing
    more and not resisting to a much greater degree what Lenin,
    his followers, and successors brought to the Russian people.
    Solzhenitsyn certainly had a “very” “great” “love” for Russia
    and his fellow Russian people. –He returned to the Russia
    that he loved, even though he could have remained in the U.S.
    and had a very comfortable and honored life. I am sure that
    his last years in Russia were not pleasant ones for him. –For
    a man who had already spent years in the Gulag. And Solzhenitsyn
    had to relive his years in the Gulag again and again as he wrote
    about it in his voluminous writings.

    Best regards.

  20. Saw Red Dawn yesterday for the umpteenth time, first things I noticed was the commie commander ordered the gun sales slips be picked up. (gun registration and confiscation) and then they were sent to re education camps.(FEMA) thought it interesting since it was made in 1984.
