It Boils Down To The Allowance Of “Mental Marijuana”

mdt-patches1-1

Recently we have seen an uptick in the amount of “In your face”, blatant attacks on conservatives, whether it be attacks on our beliefs, or actual physical attacks on us, whether a citizen on the street, or someone who we elected to represent us in Congress. Why now? There are a number of reasons I believe the physical stuff is happening, and there is most definitely a reason why there are so many different types of attacks on our beliefs. Simply put, we are breaking them.

Attacks on our beliefs are nothing new, but the ferocity of the rhetoric being espoused has escalated, and the numbers of these attacks has gone through the roof. The desire here is to so overwhelm you senses to fight back, as to make any response from you seem futile simply due to the sheer number of responses you’d have to give. The Soviets were planning on doing this to our intel gathering apparatus back during the cold war, and the present day commies are doing it now. IT IS POLICY!

As to the actual or fantastical attacks on our persons, whether it be “Joe Snuffy” or a State or Federal Rep, the communists (and that’s what every one of those scum sucking leftists are in their hearts) are trying to desensitize your “Give a Damn” to the point where these things are not only common place, but that you think only “Glad it wasn’t me or mine.”. “Calculating” is definitely something that can be attributed to the commies, but here’s something they have not calculated correctly, “GUNS”. I guess to be more specific, “Those not only unwilling to give up their guns, but actually are prepared to use them when they think they are in a ‘do or die’ corner”.

Weapons, specifically in this case “guns”, are tools that can be used to make someone a slave, to keep someone from becoming a slave, or can help set a slave free. Jeff Cooper said this about rifles (the rifle is the most powerful and capable of hand held, personal firearms for protecting someone in a violent encounter). “The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.” Willingness to use a gun to protect your life and freedom is something that separates the men from the boys. Personally, I’m not a”Meme Cowboy”, but I do deal in lead friend.

Ask yourself these questions, “Why are they making actual physical attacks on conservatives now?”, “Why are they making threatening pics and plays depicting the murder of our President?”, “Why are they faking news footage of protests?”, “Why are they chasing accusations of misconduct that have already proven to be dead ends, then trying to perform a re-engineered “2.o” of the same investigation?”. The answer is simple. FEAR! They know President Trump is our last, best hope at turning some things around (I know, scary right?). They know if they do not control the narrative, not only will “narrative control” be lost to them, but they will be held to account for ALL the things we have proof that they did.

I’m not just talking about Hillary Clinton, and her crooked cabal of murdering, sociopathic, communist elites. I’m talking about the whole wreckin’ crew! From the elite scam artists in Congress and the Courts, to the embedded Bush/Clinton/Bush/Obama bureaucrats in all levels of government. I’m talking about the media moguls and their minions that have been instrumental not only in forwarding their agenda but thwarting ours at every turn. I’m talking about the elites in Hollywood who actually believe their opinion about politics is not only valid, but warranted, and haven’t figured out that they are only there for our entertainment. Finally, this extends to the academics that have purposely indoctrinated our children of all ages to believe that communism is good simply to make them even more willing slaves when the time comes.

What “side” am I talking about being the good guys? I’m talking about the side that has and has had an historical precedent that started with the predecessors of the founders of this country. I’m talking about the ideology that was the foundation of the Western world. The Christian beliefs that spawned the establishment of a civilized society which brought about all the advancements we enjoy today. By all means tell me what any of the third world societies have advanced other than Aids, and the “AK around the corner” firing technique. Hell, if you got rid of everything else, just hygiene would be a big step up for all of them.

I’m not talking about “republican” or “democrat” (is there really a difference anymore?). I’m not talking about “Conservative” or “Liberal” (seems to me there’s too much emotion on either side in a lot of the issues). I’m not even talking about “left” or “right” (That’s a side of the aisle, not a belief) . I’M TALKING ABOUT “RIGHT” OR “WRONG”! I’m talking about having convictions that are based on moral guidelines which are well defined in the Bible.

This isn’t a diatribe about why you need to be a Christian to be a good person, but here’s a question, “If you do not believe in a higher power, and you believe there is nothing after your time here on earth, how can you say something is ‘right’ or ‘wrong’? How can you even say you have free will if your decisions are only based on your genetic makeup and the external conditions you exist in?” That’s not free will at all, because you can only make one decision in that case, and it’s already made for you. The video below breaks it down.

Here’s some points brought up in the above video. If there is no God, things like rape, theft, and murder are all subjective concerning whether they are wrong or not. “Not only if there’s no God, is there no objective right and wrong, there’s also no free will. remember if there’s no God, the only reality is material, it’s called “materialism”, that’s the only, you and I are just a bunch of neurons, nerves, and you know, a brain that is a purely physical thing, there’s no such thing as a mind, it is all brain so if we act bad, it’s not because we made a choice, it’s because of either our physiology, our genes or our environment. In either case, I didn’t choose, there’s no “I” in the secular world. “I” is a euphemism for environment and genes, that’s it. That’s the reason, by the way, the folks who believe that don’t really want to punish criminals, because in their heart they don’t believe they are responsible for what they did.” Well that makes understanding a bleeding heart commie a little easier, doesn’t it?

“Secularism is great for government, but in every other way, it is the termite of society. It eats away at the foundations of society.” Secularism is the gateway drug for socialism then communism. Basically, secularism is “Mental Marijuana”.

“With all of it’s mixed bag history, Christianity has at least given, I mean not at least, has given us Western civilization and, there have been eruptions of evil, but it is the best thing that has been made yet. It is the only place that has established the idea that human rights come from God, that freedom comes from God.” I’ve said many times that I do not need a constitution to advise me of my God given right to own, train with and use weapons for personal or common defense. I don’t need a constitution to tell me I have the God given right to responsibly speak my mind. I do not need a constitution to tell me I have a God given right to personal privacy.

“And this very much goes to the marxist argument that dysfunction, I guess what they would call immorality, but dysfunction arises from a lack of resources, you know Wow, if you grow up poor. They completely ignore the Appalachian mountains which are very poor and have incredibly low crime rates.” Saying poverty causes crime goes back to the “Spoon made Rosie O’Donnell fat” mindset. Bad choices cause crime. Lazy people choose crime. Jealous people choose crime. Hateful people choose crime. I know too many people who grew up in abject squalor and poverty, and in spite of that, made a moral, ethical choice to do the right thing with their life choices and became successful, to even consider that it’s about poverty.

“The smaller the God, the bigger the government, that is the state of the Western world. I’m not talking about the muslim world. In the Judeo-Christian world the bigger the God, the smaller the government.” First off, I believe that Islam is an ideology, not a religious endeavor. In a nutshell, their “higher power” isn’t a God, and to those of that group who are not the “live and let live modern islamic” types (they are out there) it is an excuse to conquer, rape, and steal from those who are not of their group, or group members who are violating the rules. While I am big on treating everyone as an individual, I also realize that it is in the best interest of any nation to think long and hard about allowing this group into their country, because I see what it is doing here (even to the chagrin of the “Live and let live” types), and how the secularist/socialist/communists are manipulating their absorption into every social group.

A good quote they mention in the video from G.K. Chesterton is this, “When people stop believing in God, they don’t believe in nothing, they believe in everything.”  Why is this? Because nature abhors a vacuum.

A Biblical point that was made was that secularists will never advocate the line, “Those of you who love God, hate evil.” If they did, they’d have to make a stand that appears…..religious, wouldn’t they? Think about a commie calling something “evil”. If the reality of communism wasn’t so tragically sad, that situation would be funny.

There are a number of other things that are talked about in that great video that span from “The Traditional Family”, marriage, taking a stand and sacrifice, to environmentalism as a religion, and “cause and effect” of things like minimum wage. What should those of us that believe in  a standard of objective morals, ethics, and personal/civic responsibility do in the face of all the different types of attacks we are seeing on a daily basis? Below is a brief list I’ve compiled.

  1. Identify the local threats to your personal, family and group well being. Who cares about a play in D.C. if you have local BLM, BAMN, or Antifa’s acting out violently in your area, right? The play isn’t a direct threat, but those local groups are.
  2. Identify those who are funding the threats against those of us that believe in Western values, and the principles that established civil society.
  3. Identify the entities that are advocating violence against those like yourself. An “advocate” today is a probable future member or leader of that group tomorrow.
  4. Determine where your “Line in the sand” is, and what objectives will need to be accomplished once that “line in the sand” has been crossed.
  5. Determine what skills are necessary for your survival and the #4 “objective” accomplishment in all scenarios you think could occur based on your threat assessment.
  6. Determine what logistics are necessary to survive and also accomplish your #4 “objectives”.
  7. Begin gathering those of like mind together to train and prepare for the scenarios you’ve determined are a priority.

I’ve talked about how you can start out in a number of posts, but here and here are good places to begin. Get ready, because it’s just going to get worse, they will see to that. By the way, of all the things listed above, determining your actual (not some fantastical idea about being a tough guy) “Line in the sand” is the most important. Without this being defined, the rest cannot be realistically planned and trained for Continue reading

The Requirement For, And Application Of Standards

stand·ard

[stan-derd]

NOUN
1. something considered by an authority or by general consent as a basis of comparison; an approved model.
2. an object that is regarded as the usual or most common size or form of its kind: We stock the deluxe models as well as the standards.
3. a rule or principle that is used as a basis for judgment: They tried to establish standards for a new philosophical approach.
4. an average or normal requirement, quality, quantity, level, grade, etc.: His work this week hasn’t been up to his usual standard.
5. those morals, ethics, habits, etc., established by authority, custom, or an individual as acceptable: He tried to live up to his father’s standards.
 Over the centuries, society has had many standards of which one of the big ones was “Conduct”. Many will dispute this, but the fact remains that Western society is based on the standards of conduct that are espoused in Christianity. Look at Europe. Why are they having the issues they have now? Europe has gotten away from the standards by which their societies lived for centuries. Without the standard that Christianity originally provided, they are at a loss for where to turn now that they are under attack by others that not only have a standard, but apply a standard that goes against everything Christianity (their original standard) stands for.
 Starting at a young age, I was required to comply with a standards of appearance, conduct, and training. In school, in the military, and in my LE career, I was expected to comply with standards of appearance (uniform, personal grooming), standards of conduct (rules of conduct and discipline in school, the Uniform Code of Military Justice in the Service, and codes of conduct as a law enforcement officer), and standards in training (State and private institution educationally required standards, training requirements for different Military Occupational Specialties and the ever present physical fitness requirement in the Service, and the Federal and State training requirements as a law enforcement officer and a LE training instructor).
Societal standards consist of everything from what is considered proper etiquette when a man takes a woman on a date, all the way up to what is considered criminal in the eyes of that society. Not only have the standards of interaction between those of the opposite sex, and what is legal or illegal (and the punishment for breaking that law) in society become less regimented or strict, they have also come to practically mock the Christian heritage from which a lot of them were first derived.
 “Malum in se” law is Latin referring to an act that is “wrong in itself,” in its very nature being illegal because it violates the natural, moral, or public principles of a civilized society. An example of this would be murder, rape, burglary, and robbery. Although they are still on the books as “Malum in se” crimes, the standards and punishments these days for things like murder, generally do not reflect what would have been the punishment 200 or even 100 years ago. Death for murder was the standard back then. These days, it is unusual to see someone get the death penalty even for 1st degree murder (premeditated), and thus shows a lessening or lowering of the standard that society uses to judge those within it.
 “Malum Prohibitum” is Latin meaning “wrong due to being prohibited,” which refers to crimes made so by statute. Speeding, running a red light, using illegal drugs (alcohol legality or illegality in the 18th and 21st amendment) fall under the category of societal prohibitions. If you’ll notice, most of the regulatory violations used for community revenue enhancement haven’t been reduced in severity like the malum in se violations have (I wonder why?).
 I was recently made aware of a situation at a local private Christian school that in a number of ways, shows how society really doesn’t understand the purpose of standards, especially as they apply in an educational environment. At this school, the high school students and their parents sign a pledge that the student will, among other things, not participate in premarital sex, or the use of illegal drugs, tobacco, and alcohol. A female student became pregnant, and through her Father (the President of the Board), made the principle and the Board aware of it back in February.
 The student was placed on suspension during the period that the Board decided (two days) what punitive action would be taken, and after two days of talking it over, the parents and the Board came to the decision that the student would step down from her leadership position in the student societies that she was a member of, and she would not be allowed to walk on graduation day. The student, who has a 4.0 GPA, was not being expelled or barred from graduating, she was just barred from walking across the stage during the actual ceremony.
 Then the liberal news finds out, and all “Hell” breaks loose. The school is being vilified for trying to “shame” the student because “Who in their right mind would punish a high schooler for getting pregnant?” right? A few of the things I’ve seen people say are “Jesus said, he who is without sin, let him cast the first stone.”, or “Mary and Joseph (the parents of Jesus) had to stay in a stable when Jesus was born because she was pregnant and unwed.” OK, for the record, “Google Scripture” is not the place to get your come backs for this type of argument. In the first place, Jesus was stopping men from STONING TO DEATH a woman for committing adultery (because that situation is so similar to this student, right?), and second, Jesus was born in a stable because the Inn was full, due to it being tax time (No room in the INN).
 A number of people have made ridiculous statements like, “Well, you know the other students in her class are having sex too they just didn’t get caught, so none of them should be able to walk.”. That is one of the most asinine displays of “Logic” I have observed in this situation. Because we “Know” other kids are or have violated the rules, they should be punished just like the girl who got caught.
 Tell you what, think about your own life and the multiple times from childhood on that you got away with something, whether it was a rule violation, or a crime. Now tell me how it should have been handled if the world was “Fair”. I am no saint, and have made many mistakes in my life. I have gotten away with breaking the rules, and I have been caught violating the rules. The difference between being a responsible adult and being a juvenile is accepting responsibility for your actions, and THAT is what this school has taught for decades.
 The whole point of enforcing the rules with children is teaching that for every choice in life there is a consequence. Choose to follow the rules and you generally will reap the rewards. Choose to violate the rules and you run the risk of getting caught and being punished. That is what the student in question did. She chose to violate a rule she was well aware of, and she will now have to comply with the consequences the institution imposes on her due to her violation. It’s not about whether you agree that they should or should not have had that rule to begin with. The time for dealing with whether the rule was fair or not was at the moment of signing the pledge, not after violating it.
 The main stream media is trying to vilify this school for enforcing a standard that everyone involved was aware of, and also signed that they agreed to. The only reason the MSM is attacking them and making it a headline is because it is a Christian school. If this was a military prep school that had a similar incident in which a student signed a pledge and then violated it (no matter what the act was), it wouldn’t even make a news story, let alone one of national significance.
 I keep hearing people screaming “The school needs to show ‘grace’ to this student.”, or “Yeah, but if it was a guy, the school wouldn’t have done anything.”. The irony of the situation with this Christian school is that I know for a fact that if the school had followed precedent, they would have expelled the girl. I believe they did show “grace” by not expelling her and I think they did it for two reasons. First, her parents and her told the administration about it early on (they didn’t try to hide it), and Two, she is obviously a very conscientious student, having a 4.0 GPA. I actually know a guy that was kicked out of the school as a Junior because he had gotten a local public school student pregnant, so there goes your “Discrimination” against her ‘because she’s the girl” scenario.
 This situation isn’t about Christianity, it is about having standards that are adhered to. The student and her parents knew about and said they’d comply with the standards in the pledge they signed for years (this wasn’t her first year there). If they didn’t like or agree with them, they should have spoken up then. The Christian school in question has maintained a high standard for decades, and shouldn’t be vilified for continuing those standards simply because people that are not Christians don’t “Get it”. Even as recent as 30 years ago, public schools didn’t allow pregnant students to walk in the graduation ceremony, so get over your perception of how archaic this Christian school’s rules are. They didn’t deviate away from the “Norm” society has, out of convenience and expediency.
 Allowing our society to fall away from it’s Christian heritage and rules for societal interaction is going to be the death of our civilized society. We are seeing it now in spades in Europe, and we are starting to see vestiges of it here. No one is saying you need to be a Christian, but I will tell you that if our society gets back to what Western society was founded on and follows a number of the basic Christian principles that are laid out in the Bible, non-believers will be far and away better than the chaos that will ensue if something like sharia law or the “Rules for Radicals” becomes the norm.

 P.S.
This weekend is the time we remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice for our nation. It matters not whether you agree with what our nation has, does, or will stand for. The bottom line is those that have died in the service of our great nation at the least, deserve our respect, if not our gratitude and affection.

Red Team Thoughts?

I saw this quote on Facebook this morning and thought there was some interesting analysis at work here,

“Former red team planner for the government here. If there was a revolution in the US, the rest of the world would get involved, fast. Depending on the type of uprising, there is a large chance that it would not be a quick affair. It would be brutal, it would be bloody, and the US government could start a global scale war. Here are the top ten issues that came up.

1) The US power grid can be taken down by a series of “surgical strikes” with the exception of the Texas grid. By surgical strikes, I mean a few marksmen (US army-tier Marksmen–the minimum requirement) hitting certain spots on the grid would fuck a lot of the military and government because they need the grid more than Bubba and his friends do. Additionally, while all government agencies have backup generators, they will be hard pressed dealing with the resultant looting and other madness that would come with power outages. This would effectively create another front for the military. It would also turn the people against the government more quickly and paralyze the government’s propaganda machine. Worse still–the key points of the US power grid are publicly obtainable information, and not only are the points too many to be effectively guarded, they are not guarded anyway.

2) The estimated desertion rate in case of a civil war is 75% in the case of a left-wing president. 50% of that would be assumed to immediately betray the president. The remaining (treasonous) military would be fighting its own. Yet another front created in the war. Additionally, there is an assumed 25-50% desertion or outright betrayal rate in three letter government agencies (FBI, CIA, NSA, ATC, TSA, etc.). Additionally, it is assumed that 5% of the initial 50% betrayers would stay in their job and become saboteurs. 10% of that 50% would contain key information that would be of critical danger to the US government. Of that 10%, 1% would be able to deliver that information to the US’ foreign enemies. What you should get from this is that the second the United States government declares war on its own is the second it ceases to exist as the state we know it.

3) “Tea baggers,” “right-wing extremists,” and “oath keepers” which are considered untrained racists who aren’t “good with a gun” often are A) veterans who now have more time to have fun at the range, sometimes more than some Army units or Marine units. In addition to previous military training, B) often camp and do other outdoor activities–more than many in the military do, as the focus has gone away from field exercises, and C) often have better equipment–outside of armor and heavy weapons–than the military. However, C) is kind of irrelevant because many of the places in which these people could hide would make the kind of war the US fights with the equipment they use pointless.

4) Outside influence is a huge problem. Russia has already stated they would back a Texas separatist movement, and right now we already have enough problem keeping Islam in check. The second the US has to fight in a “civil war” is the second it becomes a proxy war between NATO and whoever wants to mess with America. While America has amazing nuclear and air defense, if it comes to a civil war you have to assume that in a best cast scenario the US military is going to be operating at 50% capacity at best. Shit would go down. Hard. And fast. And if Russia–spoiler alert: one of the best militaries in the world at fighting in an urban environment–sent trainers and helpers to rebels, you can reliably bet that they would also possibly deliver weapons to them. So instead of fighting “Timmy TeaBagger,” you are fighting “Timmy TeaBagger who is buddies with Vlad.”

5) A civil war is not just the US versus the rebels. There will be looting. There will be rioting. Cities will burn. The National Guard cannot fight both the rebels and rioters in a city that would also cut off their supplies. Additionally, if you don’t think that the rebels will send in instigators into the cities–or worse, stand alone actors (A Lone Wolf on steroids. Think Timothy McVeigh, but instead of one van they have a whole fleet of them. A good movie example would be Bane)–you would be mistaken. If the US government cannot even help its own people, why would its own people support the remaining (treasonous) military? Worse yet, if someone emptied out prisons (There are more prisoners in the US than there are people in the entire Chinese Army), you would have more crime than the police could ever handle.

6) Logistics and infrastructure in the US are crumbling and failing. Any war fought against a rebellion in the US would be a logistical nightmare, even before the rebels started going full Al-Qaida and putting IEDs in the road. A retired general who was contracting with us on the team said, “The only thing holding together the US’ infrastructure is duct tape and the will of the Department of Transportation. And often enough, there isn’t enough duct tape.” Your most loyal cities to the US government, as we polled, are also the most logistically easy to cut off. NYC? San Fran? L.A.? D.C.? Baltimore? Most of them require crossing water to enter, from certain directions. Most of them have critical airports. Some of them have critical ocean ports. If anything happened to just TWO of the cities on the list, it would create a logistical clusterfuck.

7) Your “Johnny Reb” and “Timmy TeaBagger” states (i.e., “red” states) all have something most of your “oh so progressive,” “Aren’t we so European,” “Oh my god, we are just like Sweden,” blue states don’t. Blues are mainly consumer states. Reds are producer states. Urban areas don’t have farms. The second that shit goes down, realize a lot of those blue areas are likely to starve. In a civil war scenario, we predicted that at least 10,000 people would die of starvation if the war was not finished in a year. The numbers get worse after that. Or better, rather, for the country after the war.

8) The US has way too many choke points, and the government forces would often be on the wrong side of them. This ties into the logistical nightmare, but it also has to do with an odd phenomena. Liberals like to live near the ocean. Many of the dividers of the country, like the Rocky Mountains, the Mississippi River, Appalachia, the Missouri River (fun fact: the biggest choke point for the US government is in Missouri) are red state areas. Sure, air travel is a thing, but a majority of the US government’s needs would have to travel by ground. Even still, many of the major airports are outside of the city. Of course, the US would use military base air fields, but if civil war did break out… which bases would be safe? Which ones would have fallen to the deserters?

9) PR Nightmare. Every rebel killed on CNN would be spun as “the US government killed X Civilians today in a strike” on foreign news and pirate media not owned by the government. That is–as pointed out earlier–if the US media could even function in a civil war or uprising. Your “rebel scum” know that the main thing that holds together the US–nay life in the US as we know it–is the 24 hour news cycle and the media. The second it’s gone, you are going to have urban anarchy. If you are from America, can you imagine a day without TV, newspaper, or Internet? Your average urban youth can’t. If you don’t think that isn’t going to cause rioting, you must have a real high regard for how much restraint they have. Assume in a civil war that your ability to talk to the people is compromised. Also assume that in the case of a civil war that rebels may know how to monitor conversations like the US does, as there are manuals online on how to do so.

10) This one is either 1 or 10, depending on who is asked. The US will never nuke its own. The second it does, they have lost the civil war and other countries will come to “liberate” the US from its own “repressive regime.” Additionally, if any general, minuteman, nuke tech, or nuke sub captain decided to side with the rebellion, the US government is immediately SOL.

In short: The second that a “civilian uprising” or “extremist group terrorist attack” turns into “civil war” is the second the US loses. As a result, you will never see a civil war. You will see Waco, you will see Bundy Ranch, you will see all sorts of militant group confrontations and maybe even some skirmishes. But the US government fears its own people way the fuck too much to ever start a civil war.

As an American, I want all other Americans here to remember this. The government is against you, almost openly now, but they also know that they cannot win if it comes to open war. We have a trump card they cannot match. If it comes to a fight, THEY WILL LOSE, so there are elements in the establishment who will do absolutely everything in their power to prevent it from coming to that. The US Government is not in support of its people, and the people are not in support of the government.

It is within the means of certain interests to start World War III simply as a distraction to avoid an American Civil War, because, by their reckoning, it is better to ruin other “lesser” nations like Syria and spill the blood of patriots than lose their own grip on power. ***********YOU HEARD RIGHT. WORLD WAR III ITSELF COULD BE A DELIBERATE FALSE FLAG TO PREVENT A POWER CHANGE IN AMERICA. REMEMBER THIS.*********** “

Whether this guy is right or wrong, he’s at least doing some critical thinking. What are your thoughts?

Aesop Nails It

Only a fool would escalate a situation when they can’t realistically envision the logical outcome. We know something is up, and we know there is nefarious intent by not only the Soros crowd who is openly supporting Antifa, but by our own deep state players who are disguised as benevolent politicians.

Obviously they will use what ever outcome manifests itself to expand their power. The only choice now is to determine which outcome is less numerically tragic for our side, since attrition is probably the form of victory they truly desire the most. Any way you look at it, we are about “To be boarded”. Plan accordingly.

And Then…?

“At some point they will be bringing bike locks to a gun fight.”

Yes. Yes, they will. And then…?

I’ve pointed the same thing out several times.
But in most contexts, as a bug, not a feature.

The point of things is to dissuade them from going that far, if such is possible.

“Stop, or I’ll shoot!” only works until someone is brave enough to call that bluff (or, in Antifa’s case, like many home invaders, stupid enough to think it is just a bluff), and then it’s time to switch from conflict de-escalation to sight placement and trigger squeeze.

Generally nifty, in net terms, for you in your own living room. In the public square, not so much.

Because once you start shooting people in the streets, that’s not the end, it’s the beginning.
The minute you go to guns, TPTB jump in with both gorilla feet.
You win your battle with the pawns – the Bike Lock Guys, Moldylocks, and poisoned little dwarves like Yvette Felarca, et al.
But unless you’re ready to march on the nation’s capitol, you lose the war with the state, both the one you live in, and the State you live under.

So, on a bare satisfaction level, their like will die, as they always do, with a surprised look on their faces, and an extra anus or three. That outcome hasn’t really been factored into the cake, for them.

But what about at the level of those who’re funding their escapades (outside of taxpayer subsidies for student loans, and public institution tenure for faculty Reds, I mean)?
D’ya think George Soros hasn’t been pushing for exactly that response from Day One, as an excuse to push his agenda?
Do you figure that Chuck You “Blood In The Streets” Schumer won’t dance in the blood while it’s still warm, with a “SEE? I TOLD YOU SO!” moment, which will be simulcast on ABCNNBCBS 24/7/forever? That it won’t become the reason to roll back the last 35 years of CCW and Constitutional Carry progress? Anti-gunners were cheerfully willing to sacrifice MLK and RFK to pass the Gun Control Act of 1968. They roistered and capered in the blood of schoolchildren to get the Assault Weapons Ban(s) passed. Think they’ll bat an eye over sacrificing a few mouthy teachers and porn stars to roll back Heller and McDonald?? Srsly???

They’re waiting for that moment. Most of them are probably salivating at the prospects, and all it’s going to take is a few thoughtless amped-up assholes to hand it to them on a silver platter, with an apple in its mouth. If rabid shiftless gender studies students get shot within a country mile of any campus, “school shooters” is the nicest thing they’ll call you and anyone like you, for years.

And the nutless, gutless RINO Congress and Senate (ptui!) will shit themselves passing it. And Pres. Trump will sign it, because it’ll pass with a veto-proof majority (if not unanimously in both houses), and no sense fighting a battle you’ve already lost. And John Roberts will cry about it, but then Pelosi or Schumer or whomever will wave around the midget/clown/donkey porn pictures they have of the Chief Justice, and it’ll lose in SCOTUS by 5-4 or worse. Game. Over.

Leaving you right back in the fight of your lives for civilization itself, against everything.
You ready for that fight, now? Or next month?

Then throttle back, boys and girls. It’ll come, soon enough. No need to rush it.

In the meantime, no one’s saying you need to take it in the liver if the public anarcho-communists want to get sporty.

But nota bene, you can’t retaliate in public, on YouTube, and 57 cable channels, and then spike the ball in the end zone, unless you like everything I laid out above, in spades.

Everyone knows who Bike Lock is. His entire pathetic life is now on the Internetz, to the 97th degree. Everyone knows Yvette Felarca. And Moldylocks. And with about 7 seconds, the entire Phoenix John Brown Gun Club. These @$$tards have a flippin’FaceSpace page, fer cripes sake. This is how you can tell you’re dealing with Useful Idiot pawns, and not players. MS-13 is gonna whack ’em any minute, just to get their shooting hardware without a waiting period or background check.

For the rest, who can say?
In the event of foul play, the police would only have 100,000,000 suspects with a motive.

And just for informational purposes, imagine the hijinks that would ensue if one or more of them were found one morning not only whacked, but beheaded, with an ISIS flag nailed to their doors. Or their headless torso(s). Just saying.

Everybody thinks they want to poke the bear. Think it over.
If you don’t want to end up playing the bitch in a bear porno, like Leo DiCaprio in the godawful @$$load waste of celluloid The Revenant,

then you’d damned sure better have some marshmallows to throw down to keep his attention focused on not eating you.

And then your own side, and the reasonable but undecided middle, are going to start to wonder aloud whether you did everything reasonable, prudent, and goddamed possible to thwart the other side six ways to Sunday before resorting to night letters, and midnight calls.

War is a continuation of politics by other means.” taught von Clausewitz to the ages. So you sure as hell had better have tried and exhausted every political solution in the attic, garage, and basement before you go all John Brown at Harper’s Ferry, and try to hatch the next war all by your ownself.

You can’t grow crops by pulling on them, and a noose is a tough necktie for anyone to wear.
Especially out of season.

Thus endeth the lesson.
