Former Sheriff Mark Kessler Admits To Being An Agent Provocateur

COLMES: Were you working for the federal government?
KESSLER: Yes, I can’t say what agency.

Be careful who you trust.

Selco: The Cost of Violence


If you survive the violence, can you survive the mental aftermath? There's always a price.
For all this that I wrote here, people have name, they label it with words PTSD. But real point is that once violence enters your life, once it becomes part of you, you belong to that violence. To the rest of the life. In the famous US series Dexter he calls this “his dark passenger” and this dark side will stay with you.
 

Nothing romantic about it. And every time when I see on TV or wherever some anniversaries of military events, and when I see those guys under the banners and old flags, no matter what country and what war they have same expression on their face.

Mosby: The Reluctant Partisan, Volume Two: The Underground


News on Mosby's new book.

Volume One of The Reluctant Partisan focused on the rural guerrilla skills needed to establish security for retreat locations and rural communities. Volume Two follows the doctrinal construction of an insurgency by covering the underground.
 

This volume focuses on urban skills needed for surviving the continuing collapse of the socio-economic and political/legal order in our world. According to the US Census Bureau, over 80% of Americans live in areas defined as “urban.” The rest of us have to go to town at least occasionally, to buy groceries (and take the wife to a movie!).
 

Absent an epic, immediate event, such as an EMP event, or sudden nuclear exchange with the People’s Republic of China (PRC), it is unreasonable and unrealistic to expect a) everyone to move to the country, giving up high-paying jobs for subsistence wages in the boondocks, and b) to quit going into town for groceries and other needs and desires.

With the events occurring in Ferguson, MO and other urban areas, the importance of community defense organizations that allow people to rely on themselves and each other for survival are all too obvious. Whether you’re fighting cannibalistic San Franciscan rioters in order to get home from work, or trying to escape the urban madhouse, from direct-action defense to intelligence collection and assessment; from building resilient, cellular networks of trusted associates, to developing an autonomous economy within—and outside of—those networks, to communications concepts and other tradecraft, Volume Two of The Reluctant Partisan picks up where Volume One left off, and keeps swinging from the floor.

Read more here to learn about what this book will contain, what improvements have been made in the physical book over Volume 1, and how to pre-order the e-book.

Mid-Term Elections - What To Expect Now


So the Republicans have seized the Senate, giving them control of Congress. What do these election results mean for you?

Not much.

Ă˜bamacare won't be repealed. Your taxes won't be cut. Alphabet Agencies won't shrink. The debt won't get fixed. The wars won't end. LEO's won't stop conducting No-Knock warrant raids on the wrong homes. You'll still go to jail for selling raw milk. You still don't 'own' your home. You'll still have to pay for welfare. TSA will still violate you when you fly. The border is still wide open. Your assets can still be confiscated. Etc....

In my own state of Colorado, the Republicans have gained control of the state Senate, but Democrat Governor Hickenlooper still keeps his seat by the skin of his teeth (I'm highly suspect). What can I expect from this? Not much. Will the 15 round magazine limit be repealed? I doubt it. Will the mandatory background check for private gun sales be repealed? I doubt it. Will anything of significance change in favor of liberty and freedom? I doubt it.

So, again, the speed at which our liberties and freedoms are being eroded has only been slowed. They're still eroding. In 2 more years, we'll be fighting to elect 1 of 2 people who want to rule over you.

Do you understand yet?

Voting for Vandals: The Tyrant and the Ballot - by Bill Buppert


Being on this dirt pile long enough to vote in many elections, I've realized that the only thing that changes is the speed at which we're being enslaved. Some election results slow it down, others speed it up. But the destination is the same.

Excerpt:
A quick review of why voting is tyrannical:
 

Voting is violence.
 

If voting could change things it would be illegal.
 

Candidates are behaving in the extraordinarily narrow constraints of both legal and government approved standards.
 

Two party systems incentivize monopoly.
 

Increased suffrage across sex lines and socioeconomic strata correlates to an increasing size in government.
 

Voting is an illusion of granting legitimacy.
 

Have you ever wondered why obviously tyrannical regimes like China, the USSR and Cuba hold elections even though the results are a foregone conclusion? There are only two likely answers: legitimacy and a “voice” in law enforcement. The former is obvious to the casual observer but the latter not so much.
 

How many times have you heard the usual suspects crow on about the importance of a voice and that you may not like the behavior of the regime but you have a choice in which creature you select to “represent” you and they carry the philosophical water?
 

Strip any government of its policing and law enforcement function and no one will comply with the edicts issued by the elected mandarins and in the US, the venal and corrupt executive that lords over the land like an occupying force. Whether it is the land of the free or a Russian gulag or a Chinese labor camp, cops make governments work; they are the sociopathic pointy business end of all collectivist endeavors.

Read the rest.


Do you get it yet?

When it comes down to it, are you voting for your own oppression?

There are other ways to vote. Use them.

Many Circumventing Colorado High-Capacity Magazine Ban (No-Duh!)


Did Hickenlooper and the Commierado gun grabbers really think their stupid little arbitrary  'law' would work?

Even the Sheriff's opposed it.

A CBS4 Investigation has found Coloradans are circumventing the state’s controversial ban on high capacity gun magazines in numerous ways both basic and clever.
 

“I’m not surprised at all,” said Weld County Sheriff John Cooke, after viewing the results of the CBS4 Investigation.
 

Cooke has been a vocal opponent of the 2013 law which bans gun magazines that hold more than 15 bullets.
 

“People are going to find a way around it,” said Cooke.
 

He said four high capacity magazines, purchased by a CBS4 undercover producer in the last four months, were all usable.

Continue to resist. This law has no teeth.
Sheriff Cooke told CBS4 that since the passage of the law banning high capacity magazines, there has not been a single arrest in Colorado of anyone suspected of violating the law.

New Tactical Medical Device - The TopClosure 3S TMS


This is a pretty neat new product that addresses the issue of open wound closure without or with the addition of sutures. I can see this being used in the field until the casualty can be evacuated to a proper care facility. Much easier than trying to suture in the field.

TopClosure® Tension Relief System (TRS) - an innovative new technology for the management of simple and complex wounds is now available for skin stretching and secure wound closure. The TopClosure® TRS is easy to apply, safe to use and leads to excellent results by providing simple solutions for complex problems. The TopClosure® TRS is intended to temporarily stretch skin tissues to aid closure and healing of post traumatic, surgical, acute and chronic skin wounds.
  • The TopClosure® TRS is an important innovative trauma management device that can be applied in combat applications for temporary primary wound closure while complying with basic trauma guidelines.
     
  • This new device can be used in battalion First-Aid stations and field hospitals by surgeons, non-surgeon physicians and military medics.
     
  • TopClosure® TRS should be applied as a new methodology for the military Combat Casualty Care (CCC) protocol and be included in Combat Casualty Response Kits.


You can read more about this product at the manufacturers website.

If anyone has a source for these, chime in here. This are something that we should all have in our preps.

Ax Wielding Jihadi Attacks 2 NYPD Cops


Here we go again. Sudden Jihad Syndrome.
Zale Thompson has been named as the ax-wielding maniac who tried to kill four NYPD officers in Queens on October 23. Thompson managed to injure two of the cops before Thompson was shot dead on a Queens’ street after he attacked a group of cops with an 18 inch ax. Officer Kenneth Healey received a wound to the head in the incident. Another cop, Joseph Meeker, was injured. Both are rookies in the NYPD. Thompson attacked them without saying a word, according to witnesses.
Videos and more about his radical Islamic connection can be found here. Read this before you read the one below. It connects the dots whereas the network touting itself as "the most trusted name in news" does not.

The first paragraph in CNN's report stresses that there is no Islamic link. Of course the source is an unnamed Sr. LEO.
Based on everything authorities have seen so far, there is no indication that Zale Thompson, the man accused of wounding two New York police officers with a hatchet, was tied to any radical Islamist groups, a senior law enforcement official told CNN Friday.
"The lady doth protest too much, methinks."

Is this the start of more?

Stay vigilant.

Stay armed.
