What is a Government Shill?


In this episode of The Liberty Brothers Show, Host Jason Van Tatenhove and Guest Co-Host Frank Castle welcome Allen Lardieri back to the show. We discuss the groups of people that are calling for the arrest and detention of certain lawmakers. We have seen a push like this in Kentucky and now it also appears that there will be another group going to Michigan to do the same. We discuss just how dangerous this scenario could be with the very real possibility of death and at best a mass arrest. We discuss the role of a government shill, or someone who tries to get stupid (or even well meaning, unaware) people to do stupid things. We know that the powers that be use this and infighting against the Patriot community as much as they can. Allen gives us some back ground about the people who are involved in the Kentucky situation and what they are calling for. We also discuss the conference calls and videos that have been going back and forth. We would very strongly encourage everyone to really think things out and do a bit of research before jumping on the band-wagon with these groups. We end the interview discussing ways that the Patriot community can better safeguard itself from government provocateurs and crazy loose cannons. There may come a time for an armed confrontation but that can only be after all peaceful options have been exhausted and we are literally taking up arms to defend our lives. Much like the minute men who would not fire unless fired upon, we must be patient and really pick our battles (both of the mind and body.)

  1. I’m only 11 minutes in to this video interview and will have to finish it later, But I will offer a few of my thoughts so far. Firstly, I’m not up to speed on exactly who and what is planned for arresting government officials, but these guys are denouncing it based on nothing other than they don’t like the idea, while they admittedly do not fully understand it.. They have not educated themselves on what the plan is or whether it is legitimate. They are just spouting resistance to it because it involves things that don’t sound good to them. Larderi talks about how it is not good to whip people into a frenzy and get them doing things that are not good for them, but he makes his own profanity laced videos, brandishing guns, silencer, and gear, saying he will stealthily hunt down muslim terrorists in the night and kill them. Not only is he inflaming other people into possibly over reacting with their guns, he appears like the government’s idea of a stereo-typical gun toting nut job. He could have made the same video, without the guns, silencer, gear, and profanity, perhaps in front of an American flag. Much of America is angry about something, so it is easy to have such a video go viral as people react with their emotions, identifying with the frustrations that many of us are feeling. I think Mr. Larderi is riding high on his 15 minutes of fame, fueled also by his own frustrations. Anger is a dangerous thing, and he displays plenty of it, then he tries to appear as a front running patriot of our time. He would serve himself and his country better if he would temper himself. He talks about measured resolve, and then admits he made another firey, profanity laced video. Apparently, Mr. Larderi has cornered the market on what is best for everyone. From what I have read, there are people who want to serve arrest warrants on rogue government officials. Mr. Larderi says that requires physical action and we should try everything else before we get physical,…but he offers no suggestions,…other than hunting down terrorists in the night, and boasting that they will not see or hear him coming. This guy is more than a walking contradiction. If you read him very carefully, you may even suspect he is a government shill. I’m not saying the other group is correct, but Mr. Larderi doesn’t fully explain their plan, just that he was turned off to it because of certain aspects that didn’t sound good to him. Sounds like a move from the liberal playbook. Discredit and defame without any real substance. How did this nut job make the front page of Oath Keepers? I have a fire in my belly too, but I’m not making videos that feed into the stereo type of Oath Keepers the government wants to portray to the public. And if I were going to discredit another movement, I would bring some facts instead of vague generalizations.

  2. @Cherokeeman

    Hey I hear what you said, yet IMO it’s about time someone get fired up. What is there such a thing as a PC (Politically Correct) Revolution?

    Lets see, a paraphrase; I watch a dangerous snake slither towards me and feel no harm will come of it. The snake stops and coils, ready to strike, yet I feel no harm and I can not harm the snake as he is guarding himself. Last thought I have is when I feel the bite of the snake and while taking my last breaths wondering if I should have shown concern and reacted out side of PC.

    1. @ Ron, If you are intent on protecting yourself from a snake, is it necessary to strut and squawk about it first? Regarding my main point, is it fair to spend 40 minutes accusing someone of being a government shill, just because you don’t understand, or even want to understand what they are doing? Not one shred of evidence was presented to disprove the legitimacy of Thomas Deegan’s efforts. We have also seen BS articles written about Oath Keepers without a shred of evidence. Generalizations are disingenuous. Lack of knowledge about something is called ignorance, which is different than being stupid. Perhaps Mr. Lardieri is ignorant about Thomas Deegan’s efforts. Calling Thomas Deegan a government shill while refusing to learn about his efforts would be a better example of stupid. “That’s where he lost me” is where Mr. Lardieri lost me.

  3. Good interview here and some great questions & topics touched on. I have seen Mr. Lardieri’s video to the US Citizens & can understand his disdain & frustration for a government gone rogue with absolutely no respect for it’s citizens or humanity for that matter. Sometimes the use of rough language is more like a slap in the face to get someone’s attention especially when emotions are running full speed, I think we are all guilty of this, but the same message can be conveyed without seeming like you are a kettle ready to blow the lid. IMHO, his call to arms seems to me more like telling all those that are unprepared or still half asleep to get prepared and take a stand for your personal safety and those of your family unit, friends and neighbors. There will come a time when we ALL will have to take a stand for the defense of our Constitutional Freedoms & Rights, with violent actions, because history shows that it is so. We all hope that this would not be the case, but we know better. Something evil is among us and a greater evil comes our way. We are the guardians of the Republic as outlined in the founding documents and as mentioned before from the leadership of this great organization, we have to exhaust all the available means to us for the removal of rogue/criminal politicians & judges. Everyone should be reading up @ the FIJA or NLA websites about the process involved to do the job required of us as vigilant and active citizenry to hold accountable those that have been elected to represent us. With so much mis/disinformation going on, it is hard for many to get a fix on the truth and TRUST has become more difficult to grasp. The majority of the people in our nation feel disenfranchised one way or another and that is a bad recipe for peace & stability, something has got to give, but we must stand united with one common goal to help each other and save the Republic. All we can do is, keep trying.

  4. I just a site that said now the balance of power has been shifted to the East, Would be Putin Russia,
    So we have been handed over to them, China on a silver platter. WWIII to break and we are disarmed missiles etc. Now UN has a few cities in US to go along with other countries to go after terrorism here but they never call them out as the ones that we Americans know who the real terrorist are.
