Forward Observer Podcast: Round Table On Where We Go From Here
Sam Culper, of Forward Observer Magazine, asked the following people to be on his podcast this week to discuss where the Liberty/Patriot Movement is and where do we go from here. The participants are:

I think this was a very interesting and productive discussion, with lots of great ideas and insights. I encouraged Sam to do it again soon.

Sam sent us all some questions to answer as prep for the podcast round table. I will be posting my written answers, hopefully later today, and I will also post/link to any written answers the other participants give Sam.
In addition to listening to the podcast, I highly recommend – urge – that all of you read the following superb piece by Matt Bracken:
Read that, and reflect on what it means for us here in the U.S. (think of cascading effects, consequences, and fallout) and also think about what a “Tet, Take Two American Style” would look like here, given our near parallel problem of intentionally wide open borders, a “walking dead” zombie economy, and ticking time bomb of jihadist cells, increasing influx of military aged male Muslim “refugees” who are not vetted or sorted to preclude ISIS adherents, increasingly radicalized street gangs, etc.
Think on how we too have a very large “Progressive” Marxist block that is all too happy to get in bed with anyone who also hates Western Civilization, and how we also have an equally dangerous block of “useful idiots” and knowing traitors within the G.O.P. (John McCain? Lindsey Graham? I rest my case). And think on how that all fits in with the worldwide designs of the international banking elites who want to destroy our sovereignty and independence just as they wish to do in Europe. Clearly the game-plan is the same.
Europe may enter the maelstrom first, as Bracken predicts, but we Americans will be right behind them.
And then reflect on our Community Preparedness Team (CPT) program and why I started that back in October, 2013 – in a nutshell to take active steps to prepare our local communities to weather the coming storm, and in particular to focus on the systemic, “extinction level” risks of no local security and no strategic food reserves during a “perfect storm“(skip ahead to the 17:55 mark).
And keep those two critical deficiencies (no local security, no strategic national or local food reserves) in mind as you listen to this podcast, and as you read Bracken’s piece. Then read this latest piece on community security from Sam Culper.
I will have more to say on that shortly, and where Oath Keepers will be going this year. We have some critical work to do, and some strong plans for 2016. Let’s get back and track, and get it done.
