The Truth About the NY and NJ Bombings (and the Minnesota Mall Attack): We Are At War

Paul Joseph Watson with Infowars does a spectacular job exposing the media absurdity in response to the bombings in NY and NJ and the stabbing attack in MN, which all happened yesterday, September 17, within a twelve hour period:

The Orwellian bias and naked propaganda of the leftist media, such as refusing to call acts of terrorism terrorism, and criticizing Trump for calling a bombing a bombing, really has jumped the shark and gone full retard.  Which is why they have lost nearly all credibility among the great mass of the people. It is so ridiculous that even the average formerly asleep “bread and circuses” distracted sheeple are now able to see it. That is a good thing.

But the “mainstream” media, and the SJW communist fanatics that infest the Democratic party (same thing, really) refuse to see how they are killing their own credibility and legitimacy. So be it.  Let them keep responding to radical leftist and jihadist terrorism by ignoring it or by trying to blame it on “racism.” That only helps us wake more people up.

In response to these attacks, and the MN mall knife attack in particular, which follows close on the heels of San Bernardino, Orlando, Dallas, Baton Rouge, etc., Americans need to come to grips with reality staring them in the face, that there are internal enemies inside our gates who are at war with this nation, who will target men, women, children indiscriminately, and therefore, Americans must GO ARMED AT ALL TIMES, because an attack from either a radical leftist or jihadist can come at any time, in any place. The people in that mall were fortunate that an off-duty cop happened to be in the mall, and was able to shoot the knife wielding jihadist to the ground. What if he hadn’t been there? That mall, no surprise, was a “gun free zone.” So, a “law abiding” concealed carry gun owner would have left his or her gun in the car, and would have been artificially disarmed and made incapable of shutting down the attacker with some well administered lead therapy, unless they ran all the way to their car and then ran back.  That is a fail.

The right response to this absurdity is what noted cutting edge firearms and tactics instructor Gabe Suarez wrote today:

The Crossroads Mall I am told is posted as a Gun Free Zone. from their website, it mentions – “No firearms or illegal weapons”. Well that is all very nice, but that didn’t seem to stop the terrorist, so since the other side refuses to obey the rules, so shall we refuse to obey such silly rules. Carry your weapons everywhere…well concealed but ready at hand. Ignore the sign. The sign will not protect you…that much is clear.

Spot on. Go armed at all times, in all places, and ignore idiotic signs and rules. I also highly recommend that you read Suarez’s recent books Killing the Active Shooter and The Final Weapon.   Get your mind right, get trained, go armed, and be ready to be a protecting warrior when faced with evil rather than a bleating sheep, running away in terror, as this sad society conditions people to be.  If you are present at such a terrorist attack, you are the first responder.  We are at war.   Act like it.

For the Republic,

Stewart Rhodes

  1. Mr. Rhodes: We have been “At War For a Long Time.” The Evil Media will Never Acknowledge This and neither will Congress or the Senate. This is NOT NEW. What Are We Going To Do About It? We are in a Revolution and therefore, We Must Act As Warriors – We Cannot Wait! We Must Unite – Possibly with Our Purged Military. I am asking you, Mr. Steve Rhodes, Are We as We The Patriot American Leaders Ready to ‘Remove Obama and His Evil Administration?’ This is NOT about Trump or Hillary – It Is About Getting Obama Out Now – She Must Be Tried for Treason and He MUST BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE. Please contact me: Rhoda Gelman – rhodag4@gmail.com

    1. Rhoda4 is stating it as it really is. I post similar comments frequently and I have the same feeling that Rhoda Gelman does. I can not see any way that a confrontation can be avoided. Soetoro Sobarkah and his hand picked “soldiers”, the UN and the Socialist Global Elite are already “circling the wagons” and can not be far from making their move. I have no idea how the millions with like mindset can unite and prepare, however, some greater organizing effort must be implemented……and as far as what you can do in New Jersey Frank is do what you think is best to protect yourself and your family……I don’t even go out and pick up the morning paper without protection in my pocket. Where ever I am, I am always self protected. I’m an American Veteran that took the Oath many many years ago and it remains valid until my last breath. I simply refuse to be “herded” by a Kenyan Islamo-Marxist and bogus criminal Administration right here in our Sovereign American Republic.

    2. I totally agree with this comment! We are at WAR with ISLAM, period! We can’t tell the difference between ISIS, ISLAM or MUSLIM, hell, they are all in the same. This CORRUPT, anti-America government has been against , we, the American people, ever since this UNKNOWN ISLAMIC TERRORIST Obama was illegally put in OUR White House!

    3. Ma’am, Stewart Rhodes formed this organization because the Constitution, and the rule of law, was being ignored and trampled on by our own political leaders and government. Uniting with our military to remove a duly elected sitting president is called a “military coup” and is in direct contravention to our laws, and the stated goals of Oath Keepers. Just as I will not follow an unlawful order, such as to disarm the American public, I will not participate in a military coup.

      I know how frustrating this is, for all of us that treasure the freedoms of our country. However, no matter how impatient we may feel, we cannot allow ourselves to fall to that level. That treasonous #@)%& will be out of office in four months–surely we can hold out that much longer. You must remember also that, should Obama be removed from office, we would still have one almost as bad, to step into the void left.

      1. And if the election is stolen? What would your attitude be then? There has to be a line in the sand otherwise there is no end to this.

        1. FormerWAC is correct so far as Obama is concerned. Spot on. He is gone in four months.

          Now, if the election is stolen, obviously we cannot accept that result. But the point about the danger of a military coup still stands. A military coup would be jumping from the frying pan into the fire. We don’t want to see the military try to step in as the “savior” because, even if well intentioned, that will result in a military dictatorship, which will also destroy the Constitution just as surely as anything the left has planned.

          In fact, I can see the “powers that be” behind the curtain setting up just such a scenario – prompt patriotic Americans to push for, advocate, and support a military coup, and then when the generals take over, we are under a military junta, and guess who will pull the strings of that junta, from behind the curtain? Those same elites.

          The US military has no authorization to take over the reigns of government in this nation. But what institution is tasked with executing the Laws of the Union, suppressing insurrections and repelling invasions? The Militia. And who is the militia? We the People. Think on that.

          And when Jefferson and Madison lead resistance to the unconstitutional Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798, they did not appeal to the standing Army or Navy to step in, then instead organized resistance within the states, and wrote up the Kentucky and Virginia Resolves, making it clear that it was the duty of the states to stand up.

          Remember, the Founders did not trust standing armies, and saw them as a danger to liberty, and so they would not, and did not, look to the standing army or Navy to be the remedy for abuse of power and tyranny. They saw the states, and the people of those states as the militia, as the remedy. Think long and hard on that, and resist the temptation to support a military coup, which would itself scrap the Constitution.

          I will write more on this topic, as it is a vital one.

          1. Some say already done. From WH.gov
            Executive Order on August 12, 2016
            Executive Order — Providing an Order of Succession within the Department of the Treasury
            Executive Order on August 12, 2016
            Executive Order — Providing an Order of Succession within the Department of Veterans Affairs
            Executive Order on August 12, 2016
            Executive Order — Providing an Order of Succession within the Environmental Protection Agency

          2. I agree. With this last attack and the political correct attitude demanded to just describe what we observed with our eyes nationwide is too 1984. This is the double-think and too surreal.
            My greatest concern is what I understand AG Lynch, DOJ said regarding giving an invitation to the UN to come on American soil to deal with “Extreme Terrorists”. I assume these “extreme terrorists” she calls are conservative constitutionalists, military, vets and christians?
            Does anyone have any thoughts on that? I would appreciate that.

            Thanks

          3. Any UN force, on US soil is an act of war. Nowhere in the US Constitution was “AG” Lynch, the DOJ, etc delegated the authority to proclaim such a thing. Nor, btw, was anyone else who SERVES WITHIN our government. The Militia has the right, the constitutional obligation to defend their homes, community, county, state, and this nation.

            Remember that the Militia has as its constitutionally assigned duties to:
            — Enforce the US Constitution and each state’s Constitution,
            — Enforce and keep the “Laws of the Union” (which are constitutional laws ONLY),
            — Protect the country against all enemies both domestic and foreign, and
            — “to suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions”
            Per Article 1, Section 8, Clause 15. Just because the domestic enemies or traitors who serve within our governments – state and federal – do not do their duties to the Militia no way cancels out the Militia.

            It is critical for as many as can be be trained as the congress requires the military to be trained, and to also be EDUCATED in the US Constitution and their own state Constitution. Why? Because those two documents tell them exactly what they, and what those who serve within our governments are authorized to do. Because the Militias are BOUND to those documents FIRST and foremost, even though they are REQUIRED to be used by both the state and the federal governments for those above listed things – state governments can use them for more.

            Daniel Webster: “We may be tossed upon an ocean where we can see no land – nor, perhaps, the sun or stars. But there is a chart and a compass for us to study, to consult, and to obey. That chart is the Constitution.”

            Richard Henry Lee, 1788, Initiator of the Declaration of Independence, and member of the first Senate, which passed the Bill of Rights: “Whereas, to preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them; nor does it follow from this, that all promiscuously must go into actual service on every occasion. The mind that aims at a select militia, must be influenced by a truly anti-republican (lower case “r”) principle; and when we see many men disposed to practice upon it, whenever they can prevail, no wonder true republicans are for carefully guarding against it.”

            George Washington: “It may be laid down, as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every citizen who enjoys the protection of a free government…, but even of his personal services to the defence of it, and consequently that the Citizens of America (with a few legal and official exceptions) from 18 to 50 Years of Age should be borne on the Militia Rolls, provided with uniform Arms, and so far accustomed to the use of them, that the Total strength of the Country might be called forth at Short Notice on any very interesting Emergency.” (“Sentiments on a Peace Establishment”, letter to Alexander Hamilton; “The Writings of George Washington”)

            Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers 28: “The militia is a voluntary force not associated or under the control of the States except when called out; [when called into actual service] a permanent or long standing force would be entirely different in make-up and call.“

            John Adams, A Defense of the Constitutions of the United States 475: “To suppose arms in the hands of citizens, to be used at individual discretion, except in private self-defense, or by partial orders of towns, countries or districts of a state, is to demolish every constitution, and lay the laws prostrate, so that liberty can be enjoyed by no man; it is a dissolution of the government. The fundamental law of the militia is, that it be created, directed and commanded by the laws, and ever for the support of the laws.”

            That is why, I believe, that veterans are under attack by those serving within our governments.

            BTW, IF the military was honest and trustworthy this would have been stopped long ago as they would have kept THEIR Oaths to SUPPORT AND DEFEND” the US Constitution BEFORE the orders of any superior of any rank, and before the duties of the position they occupy. They did not. But since a permanent military is banned here in the USA, many in the “higher” ranks would have lost careers and then lucrative positions with those who supply the military. IF the military steps in any manner except to bring charges, then they are committing a coup which we also do NOT need.

      2. “You must remember also that, should Obama be removed from office, we would still have one almost as bad, to step into the void left.” Negative. Rhoda4 wrote “‘Remove Obama and His Evil Administration.” That means arrest all traitors – those that openly promote anti constitutional regulation and laws. I volunteer Rhoda4 to be the judge. We’ll need some executioners. Any volunteers?

    4. I fully agree.if we wait to long they will purg the civilian population down to a bunch of hypnotized, brain washed soft bellied idiots.so when do we rally and draw the line?

    5. I’ve been at this a long time. As a young boy back in the 50’s I watched my father be ridiculed for predicting what is taking place today.
      I long ago gave up the illusion that there is indeed a legitimate patriot community, banned together and exercising the authority of the People “to execute the Laws of the Union” as recognized in the Constitution.
      We will write articles, stamp our feet, and proclaim that when the time comes we will be ready, but long before that time comes we want to remain “unorgainzed”, complain, and cite victories where none exist.

  2. Calling this a bomb before the dust has a chance to settle isn’t so much insightful as it is an educated guess. Your not needs to have a bit more restraint lest he become unlucky and bomb the wrong country. Just sayin

    1. And the sound that sounded like a bomb (according to witnesses) turned out to be what?

      It was an EXTREMELY educated guess!

        1. I think what he means is carry anyway. And that is what plenty of people do. I myself have done so, while attending college in Vegas, and then Yale Law School in CT. When I felt I needed to, I ignored silly laws just as much as silly rules and signs. Yes, it risks prosecution, but if you are unarmed, you are significantly reduced in your capacity to save your own life and the lives of others. Even when in class at Yale, I always had some manner of weapon on me -usually a blade (but I am trained in how to use a blade and empty hands far more than the average Joe). Weapons are tools, and necessary when facing armed terrorists.

          I do not let idiotic laws stop me from being able to effectively defend myself and others any more than I let idiotic rules and signs.

          But that is a personal choice. And you have to make that choice yourself.

          Stewart

          1. “Yes, it risks prosecution, but if you are unarmed, you are significantly reduced in your capacity to save your own life and the lives of others.”

            This in fact, is a “Bill of Attainder.”

    1. You CAN carry a condition yellow, combative mind set. You should, as a part of condition yellow automatically spot exits and potential improvised weapons. You can regardless of state, carry something. A cane? Knitting needles? A very bright Tac light. Something.

          1. While I certainly advocate the carrying of weapons, even unarmed a person can take out a terrorist, if they have no choice for some reason. It can be done (provided you can get close before he shoots you, such as ambushing him from the side, from behind, or while he comes through a door). These jihadist jackasses aren’t that well trained, usually. But it certainly is easier with a weapon.

    2. When the powers that be determine that people in New Jersey may go to the grocery store only between the hours of 2:00 PM and 4:40 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays and those happen to be the hours when you’re on the job and cannot leave work to shop for groceries. Would you plan to just say okay, and starve to death? Do you really believe that the powers in NJ give a damn about you?
      [W3]

      1. Of course not, but if you get caught with a weapon on your person, it’s off to jail. I have two kids at home dependent on me, so I just can’t say F U to the police.

        1. Frank…it’s okay to be part of the 80% that will not stand for what is right in fear of unconstitutional prosecution. The rest of us will carry (pun intended) the burden…for ourselves first, fore which you will benefit.

        2. Frank, I’m sure people have told you this before but, you need to move away from NJ if you want to protect your family with a firearm ‘legally’. Its hard to hear I know and even harder to do. I would be willing to help you find employment if possible. If you move to Louisiana I could try to help you with this What do you do for a living?

        3. Frank,

          I think this is the perfect time to marshal support to get those laws repealed. I know it can be hard, and I know that its a process, but I think that now is the time. Strike while the iron is hot. Get with like minded people, find a state rep who will carry the banner. Someone with military are LEO experience is preferred. Avoid shock tactics and educate people. Whether you are at Mills mall and are confronted by a terrorist, or you are walking the streets of Scranton and are assaulted by a gang banger, your right to protect yourself is inalienable and must be addressed in Jersey.

          Its time to take the New Jersey 2A movement to the next level.

          1. Agreed. It is always a good idea to go on the offensive against the rights-violating oath-breakers who try to disarm people by “lawfare” against the innocent. But, he also needs to deal with the reality that is in his face right now, and that is that he needs to go armed in defense of his own life, period. And in New Jersey, sad to say, it may take a very long time to turn the tide politically, if ever. It is worth trying, but best to not put all your eggs in one basket. Meanwhile, go armed. See it as a matter of public duty.

        4. When was the last time you were searched by a cop? Note what Suarez said:

          “Carry your weapons everywhere…well concealed but ready at hand. Ignore the sign. The sign will not protect you…that much is clear.”

          WELL CONCEALED. And if you carry it well concealed, the odds of you being searched by a cop are minimal. I have carried for years in non-permissive environments without it being seen by anyone. Yes, there is a risk, but it can be done.

    3. It’s very simple Frank, be Constitution abiding and adhere to the Second Amendment. I would rather face a judge than be in a casket.

    1. The native-born American population is being replaced by an evil elite who want Agenda 21 (now changed to a higher number, I believe) to be implemented. One of those goals is to get rid of most of the people on the planet, so jihadis make the perfect partners for the Agenda elites.

      America is apparently still thought to be a serious problem for the Agenda elites; they have to get rid of us before they can totally implement their Agenda, thus the deliberate financial devastation of non-elites. This has taken several forms, some of which are: forced support by American taxpayers of elite-imported foreigners with extremely high birthrates, and high rates of crime and disease; banks bailed out by taxpayers; Obamacare with free insurance and health care for Muslims (ICE is allowing multiple wives into the US), paid for by American taxpayers of whom many can’t afford insurance or health care for themselves, etc.

      It’s going to be interesting to see how much cleanup Trump can actually achieve.

      1. “t’s going to be interesting to see how much cleanup Trump can actually achieve.”
        It is our responsibility to stand up to tyranny and send a message to Trump that our expectations are a return from the ruling English BAR and their bankers. Resume sovereignty for property owners. Sever that chord again!

        1. I meant that the corruption is so massive and permeates so much of “our” government that it’s hard to see how he (or anyone) could clean up a very high percentage of it.

          Build the wall, reform the tax system (which would involve firing thousands of excess IRS employees); reforming the education system (firing thousands of non-performing instructors and school staff members); investigating and reforming all government agencies and departments, and firing unnecessary or criminal employees, and in some cases getting rid of the organizations themselves; reforming our situation with the U.N.; reforming our relationships with friendly nations (which are not paying their way); rebuilding and re-launching our military against ISIS; finding a way to oust open members of the Communist Party USA from the House of Representatives; … I could go on and on.

          Although Trump will have lots of world-class help, it seems overly optimistic to think that he (and they) can get more than some of it done.

    2. I see this mess as groups that are at war and have declared war against our freedom, liberty, and justice. Therefore, in defense, we are to take action! Each to their ability.

    3. Absolutely, as I have been saying for years, and as “Navy Jack” has written about extensively for the past year. That is why I started the Oath Keepers Community Preparedness Team (CPT) program three years ago.

      We are being set up, intentionally, for a perfect storm of chaos and manipulation. But the answer is still the same – unite with your neighbors, unite with your local police and other first responders (as much as you can, depending on their level of awareness and commitment), and organize as a community for community defense and mutual aid. That is what CPT is all about.

      And ultimately, the real solution is a true revitalization of the militia of the several states, as Dr. Edwin Vieira has written about extensively. And that is the ultimate goal and purpose of our CPT Program. We will get there one step at a time. But it starts with you taking responsibility for your own protection and then the protection of others wherever you go. And then the next step is a neighborhood watch with teeth (armed and trained) in your neighborhood. Got one?

      Then, a town watch (which preferably works closely with the town PD) and the a county watch, which can in fact be the county Sheriff’s posse, if that can be arranged.

  3. The main enemies facing American citizens are the political ruling class and their media minions. All of them seek the destruction of the nation and the rise of the satanic new world order. They should be hanged for treason, all but a few in Washington DC (De Cesspool)

  4. Hell, since the 1950’s I have been aware that the “Commies” were a threat to our Country and enlisted at 17 years old in the USAF, That was in 1955. I got out of the Service in 1959,…… the COMMIES were STILL gaining status in the world, so I re-enlisted in 1963, during the Cuban “Bay of Pigs” debacle, and was sent to SEA and VIETNAM in 1964-66. In spite of our ability to have “WON THE WAR”…..” Johnson, McNamara (and his Band) did everything possible to make VICTORY an IMPOSSIBILITY !!! The LAWYERS in Washington DC started imposing “RULES OF ENGAGEMENT” upon us and it started going down hill around 1967-68 !!!! Our “Mainstream Media” (under (covert) instructions from the KGB in the KREMLIN) convinced the American People that the WAR was UNWINNABLE, IMMORAL. and ILLEGAL !!!! of Course in America…. ACADEMIA, HOLLYWOOD, 85% of the Mainstream Media, and “OUTSPOKEN MARXIST CHEERLEADERS” from every PRO-COMMUNIST Organization in the Nation (along with Closet Communists within our Government) took EVERY opportunity to put DAMPERS on the WAR EFFORT and make it POPULAR to support the COMMUNIST EFFORTS in ALL of Southeast Asia. You will NOTE HERE; That KOREA and VIETNAM were the ONLY WARS WE LOST in our History. It was because we were FIGHTING COMMUNISTS !!!! WE WERE NOT ALLOWED TO BEAT THE BASTARDS ! When we had every advantage in doing so. Thanks to DEMOCRATS/COMMUNISTS in America, through their SUPPORTING of THE COMMUNISTS, we took SECOND PLACE. Explain that to the loved ones of the 58,4897 who died there and the Millions who suffered wounds and Chemical exposures, and will be scarred, physically and Mentally for the rest of their lives !!!!!

    So anyway, we ARE AT WAR TODAY in our “OWN BACK YARDS”….LITERALLY…….. and the DEMOCRATS ARE “STILL” ROOTING FOR THE “BAD GUYS: in the fight !!!! I TOTALLY AGREE with our Leader “STEWART RHODES” in his assessment of this ‘WAR ON OUR OWN TURF, AGAINST the ENEMY MUSLIMS AMONG US !!! And our PARTICIPATION in DEFENDING AMERICANS, and our SOVEREIGNTY against ANY ENEMY who threatens our NATION, by REMEMBERING and BELIEVING in the OATH WE TOOK AS SERVICEMEN AND WOMEN when we ENLISTED in our Nation’s MILITARY !!!! “That OATH is as VALID as TODAY as it was when we took it so many years ago.!!!! So “Let’s GITTER DONE !!!!

  5. Thank you Oath Keepers for being the Keepers of justice and truth in what we used to call America the land of the Free and surely it is the home of the Brave men and women who continue to fight for what is right, our Freedom and our Constitution. Our Freedoms and Individual Rights started going out the window when Bill Clinton entered the White House and really before then. The injustices have escalated at an alarming rate in the last 20 years and it is time for it to stop. Past time! Our right to vote is even corrupt now so how can we continue to call this a Free Country when it is not. Our basic human rights are taken away from us every day we allow those to stay in the White House or in any seat of Government who has these “Evil Standards” of living and laws. I don’t understand why this country has stood by and allowed Obama to remain in the White House and Hillary and Bill to remain in any decision making position. If people do not start standing together against these who have corrupted our country, we will have not country to hold on to or live in freely. If it takes literally taking hold of the White house by force then so be it done by Patriots and people who will stand with them. America has been in an internal War for almost 20 years and if it takes militia force to bring Truth and Justice back then so be it.

  6. It seems the kick-off to the “October Surprise” is underway with the latest attacks on U.S. soil of which the mainstream media (MSM) is (still) under careful watch and obedience to avoid giving Trump “his day in court,” since he warned America of what could happen with Obama’s increased refugee invasion. And of course, Hillary’s plans to increase the refugee influx by 550% will backfire on her if this is a true act of Islamic terrorism.

    Currently, MSM has only gone so far to say….. “it appears NOT to be a ‘terrorist act’ bombing in New York, but (someone) has taken credit on social media,” but will not say what group or individual. Gee….I can’t wait to see who they want to blame the New York attack on, and of course….the new Jersey (pipe bomb) incident “is not related,” according to media (and how do they know that?)

    AND…..”we found a pressure cooker with wires and a timer 3 blocks away!”

    When you know the government’s m.o., it’s easy to see a game plan in place so far. Like the 9/11 hijacker’s passport, un-scathed and found 3 blocks away from target zero, but what really stands-out for me is the pressure cooker found 3 blocks away.

    What does a pressure cooker have in common with this latest attack?

    A pressure cooker was (supposedly) used by the two Russian brothers involved with the Boston event, including the pressure cooker (supposedly) thrown out the window of a vehicle by one of the brothers….followed by a Martial Law style crackdown on an entire Boston neighborhood, forcing people out of their homes at gun point, no search warrants, no catch by law enforcement, but a concerned citizen found the suspect in his backyard in a boat.

    If you recall, there were many videos and pics of the Boston event where men in khaki pants and black shirts, all wearing hats from “Ze” (Black Water) mercenaries, were seen leaving a backpack at the same location that exploded, and of course they accused the Russian patsy, carrying a different style backpack, as the bomber. Most important, authorities were telling watchers (before the explosion) that there was an “exercise” in action at the same location where the bomb went-off.

    After the bombing, law enforcement were instructed to tell the public “NOT to refer to videos or pics that are NOT authorized,” basically the same m.o. as the Sandy Hook school shooting, staged event….along with an “school shooting exercise” 2 miles away.

    The Oklahoma City bombing was initiated in-order to blame White supremacists while creating a diversion for Bill Clinton’s Monica Lewinski scandal and his facing of impeachment proceedings. Sandy Hook was specifically for blaming the 2nd amendment and we might see the New York bombing used to demonize Trump and/or his supporters. But…will they go after the makers of pressure cookers now? I don’t think so….that’s why this could be a false flag.

    The New York bombing this weekend has ushered-in the National Guard, because the attacks may not be finished, or Obama is showing us the beginning actions of a civil war….depending upon how Washington wants to spin this. And it will get a spin…..

    If authorities are not curtailed from the truth and they see a Syrian / Islamic connection, that will be a plus for Trump, since he has said “there will be attacks by radical Islamic terrorists (ISIS) already in this country,” plus we know for a fact, ISIS agents are crossing the U.S. / Mexican border. We know that at least one ISIS camp is located just southwest of the Mexican border city of Juarez / El Paso, thanks to Infowars Sergeant Joe Biggs and his team, later debriefed by the FBI with a big “thank you.”

    The Hillary camp would have to make some drastic changes to calm fears, if it is an ISIS attack…. but don’t be surprised if the “spin” is in their favor.

    The attack could be authentic and the placement of the pressure cooker three blocks away might be part of the “spin” diversion they will use to blame Russia and to blame Trump for being cozy with Putin, or they could go as far as blaming patriots that wanted to stage an event to suggest ISIS was involved, but what counters that is the knife attack in a Minnesota mall by a man yelling “Allah Akbar.”

    Folks…..we are two steps ahead of all the games they have played on us since the Oklahoma bombing, which fertilizer was (supposedly) the only detonation….of which fertilizer suggested that White (Militia) extremist could easily obtain from Coop’s, like a pressure cooker from a department store. Both appear to be too close to home and will likely be used accordingly

  7. Stewart your words were right on target. As a disabled and retired law enforcement officer I have always tried to stay within the law and play by the rules. That has not been possible for quite a while now. It is sad that our country has gotten to this point. I had an employer at a local retail store owned by a very large corporation rhymes with Mart. This employee actually told me he enjoyed the security of his job because he knows no one can ever come in the store with a weapon. I asked him why he felt that way. He said because the signs outside tell them not to. I started laughing as I bought my ammunition and informed him that lettering on a flat panel stuck to a window has never prevented a person bent on evil from entering a building. It is not a Magic Shield it is not a barrier on any sort. He responded with but they’ll get in trouble. When I finished laughing informed him I don’t think getting in trouble is their first concern if they come in the building to kill you. I personally feel much safer carrying my own terrorist stopper and crazy person Eliminator. I also hope that a fellow Oath Keeper might be nearby to help ensure the protection of my family with myself and the protection of the Sheep around me. When the wolf comes calling the shepherd is responsible for his sheep.

    1. Thanks Retired Law Dog. Well said, and a good example of the foolish thinking that is out there. I had a similar experience with a self-defense student who had a restraining order against an abusive ex-boyfriend. She thought that piece of paper was actually going to stop him from attacking her, and I had to point out examples of men who had walked through restraining orders and beaten, hospitalized, and even killed the woman who got the restraining order.

      Same goes for signs. A homicidal/suicidal attacker doesn’t care about signs, laws, legal or even physical repercussions. He will not stop till physically stopped.

  8. Yes, go armed, but be aware of the consequences if you are caught. I prefer to NOT GO TO GUN FREE ZONES… but if I MUST go there, I carry anyway. Alternatively, if I simply can’t get the gun in, I carry the knife, tac light and pepper spray that I always carry, even when I have my gun. Most importantly, I carry a combative, condition yellow mindset, regardless of where I am. In almost any situation there are also improvised weapons, and escape routes. The chances of being involved in a terrorist or criminal attack and needing a gun are very small, but so are the chances of needing a seat belt, fire extinguisher, or smoke detector. For those who DO need that piece of safety equipment however, the need is 100%.

    1. Well stated Mike I agree. My son is current law enforcement. He has came across a few people carrying in restricted Zone and only asked them to leave instead of arresting them. Of course this was after he made sure they were not felons or wanted felons. He had to do his job which also includes discretion when necessary.

      1. Amen to that. An officer has discretion for a reason, and needs to use it. I can tell you that I personally know of several good “Oath Keeper” cops who used their discretion to let a citizen go free after finding a gun on them in anti-gun jurisdictions, including one of our own members in NYPD. They used their discretion to side with the right of the people to keep and bear arms. Period.

    2. Exactly. I’ve carried my entire life. It is our culture. People are more civil when they “know” others may have weapons to protect themselves. Firearms are the equalizer. We see clearly that communities with anti-carry laws have substantially higher crime rates. I disregard “no gun” zones except airports and certain “agency” buildings with search mechanisms. I have never had to use a fire arm, but on several occasions have revealed I had one to settle or dissuade a misguided perpetrator. My advice is always carry, and carry smart; As Mike states: 100% of the time.

      1. I’ve had the same thing happen, twice. Didn’t have to shoot, but would have done so if the would-be attackers had not left immediately.

  9. I have asked on other sites, can someone do a fact check to see how many muslim brotherhood people Obama has put in departments in our government that have to do with national securety,Or departments that have high national securety clearance.

    1. You can start by listening to Phillip Haney (former DHS and Border Control Guard) youtube videos and he has also written a book See Something Say Nothing. He lays it right out there for people to see. The Agenda has been in play for quite some time, and it will be so easy for Muslims with an ulterior motive to step up and into government control when the time is right. Michelle Bachmann has been quite verbal all along and mocked – it scares the heck out of me how far this administration is willing to go and how no one has stepped in to stop this traitorous administration.

  10. Check your state laws. Most of the states don’t consider it a criminal act to carry your weapon in a “gun free” zone unless you refuse to leave when asked. I live in Missouri. I conceal and carry my weapon everywhere I go. I don’t actually believe that anyone has ever seen my weapon, but if someone did, the laws in Missouri are as follows:

    “A ccw permit does not authorize any person to carry concealed firearms into the 17 locations summarized below. (See statute for full details on each.) Doing so is not a criminal act under Missouri law, but may subject the permit holder to denial to the premises or removal from the premises. If the individual refuses to leave after being asked and the police are called, he or she may be issued a citation for an amount not to exceed $100; a second offense within 6 months is a $200 fine and suspension of the ccw permit for one year; a third offense within 12 months is a $500 fine and the loss of the ccw permit for 3 years.”

    So if you carry in Missouri and are asked to leave the premises, simply leave. No harm no foul.

  11. Until we come up with an order of battle against the media, we will continue to fail. The media enables and makes all of our nightmares come true. It needs to be brought into line or extinguished. They have weaponized the First Amendment and are using it to terminal effect against us. There has to be a way.

    1. I would urge you to support James Jaeger’s current film (in production) about the mainstream media and Hollywood movies, and how both are promoting the globalist agenda. James is trying to raise money to get the film finished, so any help you could offer would help get a very important movie completed, and would help you know that you were doing something positive to assist the resistance.

    2. Best way is to boycott them, spread alternative media to people, and help the mainstream media dig their own grave. They are losing legitimacy in spectacular fashion. Let’s help them do so, while also denying them our money, and encouraging their advertisers to drop them.

  12. Something squirrley is going on ; At the 911 memorial concerning Hillary , with her sudden emergency health problem , the way she was taken and removed from the seen and all the rumors following her departure too some dubious location and the lack of information concerning her condition along , with egregious amounts of disinformation coming from the Lame Stream media and the timing , with the election in play , that could cause the process to spin out of control ; Should be very concerning ! Now there’s these bombings , that are being betrayed as murky but common sense say’s it is terrorism . There’s something , that appears too be intentionally blurring reality ; I say head’s up something’s about to happen ! I’m trying too connect the dot’s and I can’t !!!

    1. We are also discovering many peculiar appearances with “green screen” theatrics to suggest that Hillary has a huge following. The latest videos from citizen journalists / bloggers are proving that many people in a scene/event, are not actually there, because they are pointing their video phones at the podium when Hillary is supposedly speaking, but she is NOT on any of the phones seen in the videos…nor is the flag seen in the background of their phones !

      Other peculiarities involve her campaign handlers NOT allowing Hillary to be taken to the nearest hospital, but instead she was taken to Chelsea’s apartment at 21 E. 26th St. 4th Floor, of which each floor has only one apartment. The Clinton’s paid $10.5 million dollars for floor apartment…..

      Well….it just so happens, the apartment is actually a private hospital under the corporation called, MetroCare Home Services. The corporate address listed on their website…is Chelsea’s apartment.

  13. After the recent events in rural Normandy, France, O-K. put out an article alluding to a body of evidence in possession of our intel community about current & ongoing extant Islamic terrorism threat(s) to a number of specific domestic U.S. targets – primarily “soft” civilian targets in nature. The uproar was & is, that those charged with “keeping us safe” have continued NOT to make that information officially available to those of us whom it most concerns – those targeted, & their immediate circle (family, friends, co-workers), and local L.E.O.s…

    Clearly they care more about living in “C.Y.A.” mode, and protecting elite &/or “high profile” targets than other lesser considerations. As Stewart points out above, we are on our own & cannot/should not count on ANY in government to fulfill their (Constitutionally enumerated) obligations to protect us.

    The OK story I mentioned addressed men coordinating & keeping watch over their respective churches. It’s high time to very seriously revisit that specific threat/vulnerability paradigm! After an attack will be too late for someone whose loved one (s) get up of a Saturday to attend Temple, or a Sunday to go to mass, or Sacrament meeting, or worship service…only to have that be the last time they kissed them goodbye at the door.

    Don’t let this be any of us – don’t let it go down, unchallenged in any of OUR faith communities, any of our holy places! For a time, I reassured myself, “Oh, that could never happen here, because…”
    My litany of “reasonable” reasons included “oh there’s no mosque here in my little area…the nearest one is about 45 miles away in a university town”, & “why would they even want to go so far…”, & “what have the farmers & millworkers & so on, in my rural area ever done to merit attention/effort from jihadists…” But those are excuses of convenience. They “allow” me to conveniently duck responsibility for acting on what I know – & I am in a position to know more than many, if not most.
    Are YOU saying the same things…making the same excuses? Leaving YOUR church, your community vulnerable without your input, your actions? Can you live with the regrets & recriminations should something happen? Because – guaranteed, something WILL happen! Sooner rather than later. Right now each of us has the opportunity to insure a better outcome – one that could run a cold chill up the back of other potential jihadists – namely, their compatriots lying cold, bloodied, & full of copper/lead on a stainless steel exam table, the ONLY casualties of an attempted attack on a “target” they previously thought “soft”, helpless, prone to panic, & easily cowed and terrorized.

    Weigh the psychological value of the jet taken down outside Shanksville, PA to fellow Americans …BECAUSE PASSENGERS ON BOARD WENT DOWN FIGHTING WITH ALL THEY HAD…thus preventing those jihadi murderers from reaching/acquiring their desired target! Now weigh the value of a FAILED attack on a carefully selected “soft target” that turned out not to be such a ‘soft target” AFTER ALL!

    In a word: “DETERRENCE”!

    After brief further consideration I saw that there are definitely targets of fairly high strategic value in my area. I won’t do any of “them” the favor of offering up free intel, but Stewart R. & Sheriff Mack have both been here & they know…

    No more excuses. My area is NOT “too remote/too rural”, my church is NOT necessarily too far off their “jihadist radar”…I’m Catholic – so, how well did the “too rural/too remote” thing work out for Father Jacques Hamel, age 80 ish – now named specifically as a martyr by Pope Francis?!

    This week, I will speak with fellow parishioners…men who are Doctors, ranchers, pulp millworkers, mechanics, insurance sales reps, retired/”no-load” military, electricians etcetera…I will reason with them, point out the continuing string of recent events through this weekend, & without hyperbole or fear-mongering, appeal as best as I can to their sense of duty, responsibility, and hopefully, their grasp of the reality that this threat may come to our door & “ready” is better than “grieving”.

    If I only get 2 or 3 other men who will agree to come to Mass “packing”, alert, and ready to randomly get up from their pew & go circulate in the narthex or along the wall of windows in our social hall (or any soft, unsecured entry points…), then – I need to improve my “approach”, but 2 or 3 are better than none…Far better than 10, 20, or 30 casualties.

    There is my challenge – what will YOU DO…because it WILL HAPPEN. The questions to be answered are: when, where, & who will be among the dead – jihadists, innocent civilians, both?! “They” hold the plans as to the when, & the where; YOU/WE are charged with determining ‘who’.

    “They” (muzzie scum) WANT to die for, & meet with “allah” – let’s ALL be prepared to arrange that hasty meeting for them, for the low cost of a little lead/copper & brass!

    Vivat Jesus!

    1. I agree that the CYA mode is the predominant mind set. It was that way in 1776 as well. There are a lot of people that stand for nothing. They have no idea what to stand for so they go with what is easy and appears safe. Nazi Germany is a good example of CYA group think. I have few friends, but the ones I have know where I stand.

    2. No more excuses. My area is NOT “too remote/too rural”, my church is NOT necessarily too far off their “jihadist radar”…I’m Catholic – so, how well did the “too rural/too remote” thing work out for Father Jacques Hamel, age 80 ish – now named specifically as a martyr by Pope Francis?!

      This week, I will speak with fellow parishioners…men who are Doctors, ranchers, pulp millworkers, mechanics, insurance sales reps, retired/”no-load” military, electricians etcetera…I will reason with them, point out the continuing string of recent events through this weekend, & without hyperbole or fear-mongering, appeal as best as I can to their sense of duty, responsibility, and hopefully, their grasp of the reality that this threat may come to our door & “ready” is better than “grieving”.

      Well said. Thank you.

    3. “The OK story I mentioned addressed men coordinating & keeping watch over their respective churches. It’s high time to very seriously revisit that specific threat/vulnerability paradigm! After an attack will be too late for someone whose loved one (s) get up of a Saturday to attend Temple, or a Sunday to go to mass, or Sacrament meeting, or worship service…only to have that be the last time they kissed them goodbye at the door.”

      Again, well said. And we are going to do just that. Expect a call to action for our members to help protect churches and synagogues under threat, and to offer to help train them to protect themselves. ISIS has made it very, very clear that they intend to attack churches and synagogues here in the U.S. It is going to happen, so let’s get ready to administer that lead therapy when they do. I published some preliminary advice for church security teams, but I will ask our military and police experts and instructors to expand on that. Ditto for a threat assessment you can take to your church.

      1. Thanks very much. I’ll take one of those threat assessments! (You’re welcome to email me directly.)

        I may be Catholic, but I know & affiliate with people of many other denominations. I will gladly share/brief, in hopes to see them create & prep their own teams at their respective churches. They can then do the same with friends who are part of yet other churches, etcetera…

        It would be nice if this “goes viral” as fast as humanly possible…I have a bad feeling the Islamic Statists in America will not wait – not long. #NoMoreSoftTargets

  14. There are only 4 qualifiers in the 2nd Amendment; “Well Regulated, Necessary to the security of a free state, Right of the People, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.”
    I see nothing in there about their Unconstitutional Codifications, do You?

    1. And note the focus on public security, and the very public obligation and duty to step up and defend your state, not just personal self defense. Yes, you have a natural right to defend yourself, but in this nation, in this Republic, you also have a civic duty to step up and defend others. The Second Amendment is about both – rights and duties.

      1. Big 10-4 on that Stewart! Somehow we tend to leave out the “Duty” portion when discussing the 2nd Amendment. There is a huge demographic (men of working age) that is being disenfranchised from the workforce. In fact, I just read a story that the “Percentage of working age males is similar to the Great Depression.” Somehow, someway we need to bring them into the fold and get these militias established. God knows our Progressive counterparts will try to enlist them (twist their mental focus) for something……

    2. Add to that the Preamble to the Bill of Rights which makes it very clear that it is those who SERVE WITHIN our governments that are forbidden to infringe upon the RETAINED rights to have, own, and carry arms – actually the US Constitution REQUIRES that we carry.

      I use a lot of quotes here (and everywhere), but the real eye opener should be the first one, please read it carefully.

      Tench Coxe, Delegate to the Constitutional Convention of 1787: Tench Coxe: “Who are the militia? are they not ourselves. Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American…The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.”

      Richard Henry Lee, 1788, Initiator of the Declaration of Independence, and member of the first Senate, which passed the Bill of Rights: “Whereas, to preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them; nor does it follow from this, that all promiscuously must go into actual service on every occasion. The mind that aims at a select militia, must be influenced by a truly anti-republican principle; and when we see many men disposed to practice upon it, whenever they can prevail, no wonder true republicans are for carefully guarding against it.”

      George Washington: “It may be laid down, as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every citizen who enjoys the protection of a free government…, but even of his personal services to the defence of it, and consequently that the Citizens of America (with a few legal and official exceptions) from 18 to 50 Years of Age should be borne on the Militia Rolls, provided with uniform Arms, and so far accustomed to the use of them, that the Total strength of the Country might be called forth at Short Notice on any very interesting Emergency.” (“Sentiments on a Peace Establishment”, letter to Alexander Hamilton; “The Writings of George Washington”)

      George Washington: “A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies.”

      William Rawle, whose work was adopted as a constitutional law textbook at West Point and other institutions, and was United States Attorney for Pennsylvania, describes the scope of the Second Amendment’s right to keep and bear arms: “The prohibition is general. No clause in the constitution could by any rule of construction be conceived to give congress a power to disarm the people. Such a flagitious attempt could only be made under some general pretence by a state legislature. But if in any blind pursuit of inordinate power, either should attempt it, this amendment may be appealed to as a restraint on both.”

      James Madison, Federalist 46 wrote: “Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation…”

      The New Hampshire ratifiers called for a guarantee (the Second Amendment) that: Congress shall never disarm any Citizen…”.

      Joel Barlow, Revolutionary War veteran, wrote “Advice to the Privileged Orders, in the Several States of Europe”, clergyman, theologian, popular poet, successful diplomat, and American whose political writings were debated on the floor of Parliament said of the US Constitution: “… not only permitting every man to arm, but obliging him to arm.”

      Cockrum v. State: “The right of a citizen to bear arms, in lawful defense of himself or the State, is absolute. He does not derive it from the State government. It is one of the high powers delegated directly to the citizen, and is excepted out of the general powers of government. A law cannot be passed to infringe upon or impair it, because it is above the law, and independent of the lawmaking power”.

      “Arms restrictions – even concealed weapons bans – are unconstitutional, since arms bearing is an individual right and the legislature may not restrict any aspect of such a right.” Bliss v. Commonwealth

      Nunn vs. State: ‘The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.’ The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, and not such merely as are used by the milita, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree; and all this for the important end to be attained: the rearing up and qualifying a well-regulated militia, so vitally necessary to the security of a free State. Our opinion is that any law, State or Federal, is repugnant to the Constitution, and void, which contravenes this right”.

      Andrews v. State explains, this “passage from Story, shows clearly that this right was intended, as we have maintained in this opinion, and was guaranteed to, and to be exercised and enjoyed by the citizen as such, and not by him as a soldier, or in defense solely of his political rights.”

  15. “But the “mainstream” media, and the SJW communist fanatics that infest the Democratic party (same thing, really) refuse to see how they are killing their own credibility and legitimacy.”
    Two things wrong with this sentence. Please stop referring to them as “mainstream” media. They are anything but. How about left wing media (LWM)?
    Second, it is not the Democratic party. It is the democrats or democrat party, but they are a long way from democratic.
    Start calling them what they really are.

  16. Can anyone tell me why nobody has talked about LSS (Lutheran social services) Catholic Resettlement Services being involved heavily in refugee resettlement? Look up the websites. A lot of the policy there sounds ?. Its time to ask our churches and councils to find out if your donations to the church of your choice are being funneled into these programs and to put pressure on LSS and Catholic Resettlement Services to use more discernment when bringing muslims to settle in US! The intentions of churchs may be for good. However there is a need to have more accountability to your parish and congregation for the actions of its outreach programs.

    1. Exactly! A good example of the sheeple taking control of an otherwise sound doctrine that should shape society with their doctrine, rather than allow society to shape their doctrine. It’s upside down thinking and insane.

      This aspect of the story needs to be posted here.

  17. Please don’t use the term “retarded”. It is offensive and ignorant and takes away from the message.
    My Down Syndrome grandson is smarter than every liberal I know.

    1. I was instructed to descend, so I “retarded” the power. The ignition timing needed to be retarded. Get real….promoting political correctness and getting snowflake butt hurt over the common use of a term is itself retarded. Excuse me, but a person who lost a limb in battle is disabled, as in lesser than the whole person; so we can’t refer to someone as disabled because some PC snowflake might get butt hurt? Hillary has brain damage, she is now retarded in some realms of thought and brain function. My IQ is lower now than when I was younger. I am now retarded by comparison.

    2. Actually, the term I used was “full retard” which is a reference to the movie, Tropical Thunder, where Robert Downey Jr.s character (he plays a white Australian actor playing a black soldier, in full makeup) does a humorous bit about how actors who go “full retard” go too far, and how they kill their chances of an Academy Award when they do that, and advises “never go full retard.” It is very funny. Check it out.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6WHBO_Qc-Q

      “Never go full retard” has become a meme, and is now often seen as a morale patch.

      It is humor, and I used it in much the same way as “jump the shark” as describing someone who is going to far for their own good.

      So, not meant as any insult to people with actual disabilities.

  18. Almost all large indoor malls are GFZ’s. Even the local mall is a gfz, but at least it isn’t a weapon free zone, they have a Chinese gift shop with swords available for purchase, or in a case similar to the MN incident, defense. And a sword reaches out farther then a knife… Pretty sure they have spears too…

    1. Well, I suppose that may be helpful if you happen to be attacked by a Jihadist with a knife rather than an AK, and if you happen to be standing near the sword/spear shop. I’d prefer to have my tools on me, ready to go, and that includes both a blade and a gun.

      My usual daily carry is:

      1. A Glock 23 with 2 spare mags (yes, I know many guys now prefer the slightly higher capacity of a 9mm, but I live in the woods in MT, where we have four legged predators, including Mountain Lion and Bear, so I like a bit heavier bullet). Around my property and at the local feed store/gas station, I carry open. When I go to the “big city” of Kalispell, MT, it is concealed under an untucked T-shirt.

      2. A Fred Perin Street Bowie or Perin designed Spyderco Street Beat, carried up front, near the buckle where either hand can reach it. Again, concealed under an untucked T-shirt.

      3. A Comtech “Stinger” on my key-chain for less than lethal situations (such as some drunk wanting to fist-fight).

      4. A Streamlight Pro-Tac 2L or other small tactical flashlight.

      5. A folding knife with a pocket clip, on my non-dominant side, carried with the clip visible in a pants pocket. I use that for opening packages, and I figure if some idiot is trying to size people up, he may see the clip knife and decide to find someone who is not armed (and, that is a “show” knife, and is not the one I would go for first anyway).

      I am now also giving a Shivworks “Clinch Pick” a try, and also a Spyderco “Reverse” (which can be reconfigured for standard, blade down use, or reverse, edge in, ala Craig Douglas of Shivworks fame. I am trying that out for my non-dominant side hand.

      I know many guys also like to carry a backup gun, such as a hammerless .38 airweight, and I have done that too in the past. Not a bad idea in case your main sidearm takes a dump on you.

      I suppose a truly prepared man would have two handguns, and at least one knife, but whatever you do, make it a daily habit and be consistent, so your “tools” are always in the same place, and you practice drawing them often, from all kinds of positions, including on your back, on your stomach, and when your dominant arm is pinned/grabbed/disabled. Be sure that both your main gun and knife can be reached with either hand. And/or have a backup on the “non-dominant” side. Get training guns and knives that fit your holster and sheaths, and integrate drawing and also retention into some force on force training. Airsoft also works great for that.

      Do a search on Youtube for Craig Douglas (aka “Shivworks”) and also for Gabe Suarez on force on force, and see what realistic training really looks like.

  19. The easiest and possibly the quickest, and certainly the least expensive, way to get rid of Islam in America is to get it redefined from religion to cult.

    Religions don’t practice human sacrifice; groups that do that are called “cults.”

    A coven of witches caught in a human sacrifice would be identified as a cult without question. Why is it that the Muslims openly do the same thing (calling to their god to witness and approve the murder of a human being/human beings), but have not been given the label that they have so richly deserved for about 1,400 years?

    Today, it’s because western civilization is politically corrupt and doesn’t have the backbone to voice the truth.

    I take every possible opportunity to point this out, in the hope that it will reach a critical mass.

    1. Uhm, just a thought for you. I really doubt that the Wiccans practice human sacrifice. I understand that the Muslims will murder women at times, but I am not aware that they do “human sacrifices” as some sort of ritual. Can you elaborate please?
      Salute!
      Elias Alias, editor

      1. I believe she used the word “witches” Elias. Wiccans are generally considered good, peaceful, harmonious. All Wiccans are Witches, but not all Witches are Wiccans…if that helps.

        1. I do grok the difference. It may be over some readers’ heads, so I just wanted to push her for a bit of clarification. I have some wiccan friends who are outstanding good people, lovers of Nature, and possessed of very high moral standards in their personal lives. Those I know would never be involved in “human sacrifices”. Wish I could say the same for everyone working in the federal government, right? 😉

          Salute!
          Elias Alias, editor

      2. Calling to a “divine” entity to witness and approve a murder is human sacrifice; the human is being sacrificed to that entity.

        The Muslim jihadis always call to Allah to approve their atrocities.

        Perhaps “satanist” would have been a better choice of word for my example.

        Islam also meets the other qualifiers as a cult: Severe penalties for leaving (death in the case of Islam); forced conversion (sometimes at sword point in the case of Islam); repression and extreme control of women, often violent; obsession with sex and/or death; charismatic, violent leaders; polygamy … there are more, but I can’t think of them all now.

        Not all cults display all of the qualifiers, but most have more than a few. Very few cults practice human sacrifice.

    2. I understand why you say that, but who, exactly would do the redefining? Congress? The President? Some unelected Judge? Some bureaucratic weenie in Washington DC? And once you open the door to the government redefining what is and is not a religion protected by the First Amendment, what is to keep them from redefining your religion as a “cult” and removing First Amendment Protection from you and your faith? See the problem there?

      And look at the facts before us – we currently have a federal government that is dominated by people who are allies of radical Islam, and who do all they can to shelter and protect it from even mere criticism, let alone any real action against it. You want them to decide what religion is a cult and can be banned? Obviously not a good idea.

      Like I said, I understand your sentiment, and I agree that there is an inherent problem with Islam. It was, afterall, founded by a mass murdering (putting entire towns to death), child molesting (“married” his child bride, Aisha, at age 6 or 7 and consummated (had sex with her) at age 9 or 10), a mas rapist (he ordered that captured enemy men be put to death in front of their wives and daughters and then he and his men raped those same wives and daughters that night), robber, and looter. A stark contrast to Christ or Buddha, who, to my knowledge, never raped, murdered, or robbed anyone.

      Mohamed acted no differently than depraved Japanese soldiers during the notorious rape of Nanking. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nanking_Massacre

      And yet, Muslims the world over are told to emulate him and his examples.

      So, it is no wonder that many take him literally and emulate him to a “T.” So there is a very real problem with Islam.

      But we have to address it without destroying our own Constitution, and without handing our enemies another weapon to turn against us, as they have already turned the DOJ, FBI, and DHS against us.

      The only constitutional and safe way I can see to do that is to amend the Constitution to specifically designate Islam to be a totalitarian ideological system that is specifically removed, by name, from the protections of the First Amendment. And I think the odds of that happening in our current political environment are slim to none.

      1. Hopefully our current political environment is going to change soon.

        Why would the Constitution have to be amended so that a system that is not a religion could be treated as though it is not a religion?

        1. It doesn’t. “All Men Are Created Equal” is a cornerstone of our government. just listen and see if it does not make sense to you.

          1. What does all men being created equal have to do with the difference between religions and cults parading as “religion” to get benefits and protections that they wouldn’t get as cults?

  20. Get a keltec 380 and keep it in your pocket. any firearm is better than none. Even a 22 cal pocket pistol in hands of marksman can stop a threat. Think tactically.
    We need more people to challenge state laws that restrict 2nd amendment rights. we need to use the recent 14th amendment ruling they twisted for same sex marriage to override states rights. we need to use same twisted form to deny the commie states laws that severly restrict 2nd amendment. We just need lawyers and plantiffs to flood courts with this effort.

    1. Well, while any gun is better than no gun, and such small handguns can work at very close range, if you are cool enough to put one in the brain, it is better to carry a more effective weapon (which means one with better sights, more accuracy at range, and a more powerful cartridge). You may have to take a shot a longer range, when the AK wielding terrorist is looking the other way.

      Watch this video by Suarez on this topic:

      You can carry an effective 9mm or .40 with good sights, such as a Glock 19 or 23 or other comparable handgun, concealed. It can be done. I have done it for years, and usually under no more than an untucked T-shirt.

      Carry the .380 or .22 as a backup. When faced with potentially heavily armed, armored (with body armor) terrorists, and also possibly more than one, you need the most accurate, powerful, and highest capacity handgun you can carry. As Suarez says in that video, the day of the 2 inch snubnosed .38 as a primary carry weapon are over. It is a good backup, but a damn poor primary in such a situation.

      1. And, if the terrorist is wearing body armor, as many of them do, you will have to go for a head shot, or at least a shot to the pelvis to put him down and then a head shot to the “computer.” But expect to have to do a head shot, and you may have to do that at a distance. And a .38 snubby, a small pocket .22, or .380 usually has crappy sights and a very short sight radius, and that adds up to it being hard to do head-shots with such weapons. And many of them also have lousy triggers. Again, not good for precise shooting, like a head shot at distance. Watch the Suarez video and heed his advice. This is not a standard “self-defense against street thug” situation. This is war.
