Gettysburg Remembrance Day Parade, 2017. The Show Must Go On

Gettysburg Parade 2017-05

So most of you have read about a number of the threats that have been directed at a number of Civil War reenactments or other events involving memorials or parades, and yesterday’s Remembrance Day Parade in Gettysburg was no exception. A credible threat was received a little while ago, and the Law Enforcement agencies responsible for Gettysburg made sure they were prepared for any possibility.

Various Federal agencies (it is a National Park), the Pennsylvania State Police, the Gettysburg PD, and the Adams County Sheriff’s Department were all in attendance, and the show of protective force on display was enough to make any person in attendance feel as safe as is possible in that type of atmosphere.

Ironically, local moolisha types are claiming they “kept all of us safe” after they “coordinated” with the local Law Enforcement and deployed for their “Op”. Funny thing is, I was there, and there were no militia to be seen (and I can ID most of the guys that were supposedly there, and family that was on the sidelines said they didn’t see any of them either, and they walked the whole route). Well, that is except for the Civil Air Patrol Cadets that I saw while in one of the shops. Wanna hear something ironic, the moolisha is sayin’ they didn’t deploy with uniforms on this “Op”. LOL.

The only ones who “Stepped out and put it on the line” at the parade were LEO’s and those who marched. You guys didn’t do jack.

OK, so let’s review,

You’ve got a ton of uniformed and plain clothes LEO’s in a relatively small area. The LE contingent includes a number of PSP Troopers on horseback, about three to four times that number of Officers on foot (a number of them were actually checking the trash looking for IED’s and other threats). I saw a number of K-9 Officers patrolling with their dogs, and last but not least, there were a number of snipers in several elevated and tactically sound positions.

Now you have a guy claiming he is coordinating the use of his untrained and unidentified (no uniforms, remember) group with the local law enforcement to respond to a credible threat of attack. I don’t buy it, and I’m gonna call “Bullshit”. What self respecting Law Enforcement Commander would allow any of those moolisha morons to be involved in anything to do with the safety and protection of this event? The answer is “None of them”.

The point of this post isn’t to point out that there are a bunch of wannabe LEO’s posing as moolisha trying to make themselves look like they are the “protectors”, when they are nothing but attention whores. The point of this post is to show that it is important for people to stand up to the assholes making the threats. The point of this post is showing that there are some law enforcement agencies that are stepping up and doing the right thing to protect the people of their area.

As one of the marchers, I was grateful that the people who lined the march (more than normal) route were very vocal and very supportive. The support that was shown was even more than the years past that I’ve attended and It was a thumb in the eye to anyone who wants to intimidate Americans who value their history, and want to honor those who have come before us.

Ironically, in this situation, many of the marchers were better armed (and I’m not talkin’ about muskets with bayonets) and ready for a response to anyone trying to hurt us than any group of wannabe’s who say they inserted themselves into a serious situation. All the moolisha group did was prove they just want to get into a fight (like all the other times they’ve been present at protests and rallies), and not actually protect anyone.

Anyone who was there that had an ounce of common sense and a “clue” about the tactical deployment of troops would understand that using your guys in that over saturated and uniformed LEO environment would be tantamount to employing the polish firing squad technique. But of course we’re not talkin’ about guys with common sense and an understanding of the tactical, operational, and strategic deployment of troops, so it’s a moot point.

In summation, all I can say is this. Thank you to those that stood on the sidelines and gave encouragement to those of us who marched. Thank you to the Fed LEO’s, PSP, GPD, and the ACSD for your support and cover in a less than optimal situation. Thanks most of all to those that stepped up and marched, even with an unknown threat hanging over your heads. To the moolisha who only came to play “Protector” here’s a thought. Next time, why don’t you come to support what we were marching for, not just come to try and get your name in the paper.

Brushbeater’s “First Call”

Brushbeater hits the nail on the head once again. Anyone who has served knows what “First Call” is, and what it means. You better get you’re ass up double quick and in a hurry because you don’t want to be the guy that the “Platoon Daddy” says, “WAITIN’ ON YOU!” to. It’s gonna be a long day.

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Reveille in America

reveilleFirst Call, Americans. Out of your bunks. For a good portion of you out there, a year ago you went to sleep. That attitude driven by a very real fear of government out of control over eight years produced diamonds. For many, it meant getting serious about preparing yourselves, family and neighborhoods for uncertain times. And then, you went to sleep. Your guy got in, and he’d make it all right. Everything would be fixed, time to rejoice and rest on those laurels. He’ll undo all the wrongs and the lever pullers of power would truly yield to vox populi. And then, you went to sleep.

While you were sleeping a lot went on. The Left in America, pushed into a corner, has armed up. Keep telling yourself you’re better…after all, it’s entertaining to watch a kid posture in front of a camera with a half-cocked Nagant. Keep in mind, that same kid has all the fire you had 2008-2016, except that he’s half your age and has none of the aversion to violence that you do. That’s right. He has no social capital; no mortgage, no three kids and an SUV. All he has is a lifetime of debt and little hope for any future. Socialist revolution seems good, because after all, the same institution which holds the keys to history groomed him.

antifa-thugs-armed.png
Symbology tells a story. Tell yourself again they’re not serious.

Those with no hope often make great suicidal fighters for a cause. AntiFa and all the little fingers of the Communist Party is not quite there yet…give it time. And while you might look at the traveling street show as a joke, understand that the losers posing on front of the cameras are only one arm of a much, much larger body. The media and entertainment arm is busy grooming the minority blocks based upon the ‘social research’ of academia, upping the ante nearly daily and reinforcing the notions that their way is the only way. There have been no ramifications, so why would they stop?

A country music concert was mowed down and we have no plausible story. None whatsoever. Two churches have been shot up. The first one was a blip on the ticker for a day, because it fit no useful narrative. The second is being diverted as a ‘mental health incident’, grossly overlooking the reality that the guy was a militant and virulent atheist, with a Facebook page that listed him as more than a passive supporter of several Lefty causes. Of course, you’ve heard nothing of ‘Together We Rise’, a Socialist group he was a member of, amid the standard talking points. In each case, as a man who judges terrorism by the target, I’d say the story is that one group, Conservative, White Christians, is wanted dead. Before the last shooter became a non-person and online presence scrubbed, his social media indicated that he was at least a passive supporter of Bernie Sanders and CNN. sutherland-springs-t.jpgAnd sure, his ex-inlaws may have went to the Church once or twice, but that’s hardly an explanation for the calculation and callousness exhibited aside from being an easy target. It took two armed observers to stop him. Where are the demands for real answers? Where are the boycotts, the rallies, the riots? Why is the CNN sign not being torn down in Atlanta? Why is there not a demand for Senator Sanders to relinquish his seat for his rhetoric and link to the shooter? What are the ramifications for a Left that cannot accept anything short of revolution? What has been gained by ‘compromise’? The list of ‘celebrities’ who spared no opportunity to mock not only Christianity but the victims themselves based solely upon ethnicity, long being the rally cry of the Left itself; what of them? They are a reflection of a social faction which explicitly wants us dead.

They are not going to stop. They have no incentive to do so. The power structure which exists should be vibrantly apparent to you now, as it understands the challenge to which it faces.

ayers.png
William Ayers told you what they planned to do. Did you not listen?

depugh.jpgIt will not go quietly; when such a challenge is issued, an exertion of force must be applied to re-assume control. And the Republicans would abdicate any and all power to restore the hands which feed them. How quickly are they folding on nearly every issue? They serve not your interest or mine- no purpose but a foil for the advancement of the Communists. And where does that leave you, American?

Rekindle that fire you had a year ago. Your five minute breather is over. Pick up your rucks and start walking again. You don’t have enough food or ammo for what’s coming. Prep harder, train harder. Go back to your Churches. And while your at it, seek out training from experienced folks even if you think you know it all- because I promise you, that outside viewpoint or different opinion may make a big difference. You can’t learn it by only reading a blog; you have to go and do. Your enemy is training, and they want you dead. Reveille is sounding, American.  Do you hear it?

Two Shooters? Here’s A Valid Analysis

I’m not going to get into what a number of experienced Infantry Vets believed they heard in the video footage concerning the type of weapon, but this is a reasonable reason to believe that there was more than one shooter present. If there was more than one shooter, the theory behind what was used and by whom comes into play. After watching this, the only thing you’ll believe is a conspiracy, is the “Lone Wolf Geriatric Millionaire” theory.

Thousands of Vets would heed the call. The inexperienced and Korny Kernals need not apply for this task. It is real not a fantasy photo op with a cigar and your AR.

Dear President Trump

Dear President Trump:

I’m writing you this public letter to provide a solution that would prevent further violent incidents such as the recent Las Vegas shooting and out-of-control protests that have occurred across the country. This solution would require neither you nor congress to pass any further laws. This solution would also limit the infringement of civil liberties against the citizenry, and help the veterans in this country who are facing financial difficulty, joblessness, and potential homelessness. But before I do that, let me detail how the Las Vegas shooting could have turned out if this solution was previously implemented.

My former employer, BBN/Raytheon, has developed a gunfire detection and tracking system called Boomerang (http://www.raytheon.com/capabilities/products/boomerang/). It enables the user to locate the source of small arms fire. From there, a skilled observer such as a veteran trained and experienced as a Calvary Scout or Fire Support Specialist would be able to identify the exact location of the shooter, at which a point a counter-sniper team would be able to suppress the shooter’s (or shooters’) activity long enough for he or she to be either apprehended or otherwise neutralized. This is not fantasy or science fiction. The technology is in place here and now, and the United States military has trained thousands, if not millions, of men and women to do this exact job function, and gave them plenty of experience doing it. Many of us would be more than happy to go back to doing it to help preserve the Republic.

As you may be aware, Mr. President, you have the authority under 10 USC 333 to call forth the militia to suppress domestic violence. Here is the relevant statue as pulled from https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/USCODE-2011-title10/pdf/USCODE-2011-title10-subtitleA-partI.pdf:

§ 333. Interference with State and Federal law
The President, by using the militia or the armed forces, or both, or by any other means, shall take such measures as he considers necessary to suppress, in a State, any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy, if it—
(1) so hinders the execution of the laws of that State, and of the United States within the State, that any part or class of its people is deprived of a right, privilege, immunity, or protection named in the Constitution and secured by law, and the constituted authorities of that State are unable, fail, or refuse to protect that right, privilege, or immunity, or to give that protection; or
(2) opposes or obstructs the execution of the laws of the United States or impedes the course of justice under those laws.

I should also point out, Mr. President, of the different types of militia you have access to in order to preserve domestic tranquility, as detailed under 10 USC 311:

§ 311. Militia: composition and classes
(a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.
(b) The classes of the militia are—
(1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and
(2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.

Please pay particular attention to section (a) and section (b,2). With the National Guard (organized militia) engaged in federal missions outside the United States, they are often unable to engage in domestic support missions. However, you have at your call thousands, possibly millions, of trained and experienced veterans who are now members of the unorganized militia. Many of us could use, and would appreciate, a decent job and a stable place to live. Most, if not all, of us would be happy and honored to continue serving our country and protecting the republic in its time of dire need. Quite a few of us are already self-equipped to various degrees, and would require minimum logistics support to become operationally effective.

All you have to do, Mr. President, is declare a state of emergency and act as Commander in Chief to call forth the unorganized militia, specifically those experienced defenders of the republic who have honed their skills on the field of battle. Most of us would be honored to serve again, and would faithfully, expediently, and efficiently defend the republic and the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. No more laws need be passed. No more infringements against citizens’ constitutional rights. Just one simple declaration, and we’ll do the rest.

Sincerely and Respectfully,
Just Another Veteran

Men Of The West On “Taking A Knee”

“Men of the West” nails it to the wall in this piece! People that want to get into the minutia of “Why” those guys shouldn’t take a knee, are missing the big picture. The big picture is that our culture is one of honoring and respecting our ancestors. Our culture is one of showing those who have sacrificed everything for us, the respect they’ve earned and greatly deserve. Our culture is one of respecting the right of someone to disagree, but never allowing our cherished history, the representations of that history, or those under our care and protection to be disrespected.

I am ashamed to see all the “entitled” little, sycophantic, troglodytes who come out to protest something they’ve never experienced, don’t know the actual history of, and honestly, don’t care about. You know, every day is “opposites” day to them, and they do it generally because ………”Social Media”. Social Media is not just a societal cancer, it is a blood poison that is racing towards the “Heart” and is shutting down all the important “organs” along the way.

Do I use social media? Yes, I use Face Book (it’s part of the PACE commo plan if nothing else). Would I have an issue with giving it up tomorrow? Not in the least. Our Damned education system has become a top down progressive/socialist/communist cesspool that defines the immoral, unethical and just plain societally disgusting as “normal”. We see now the “Educated” Imbeciles that are coming out of “higher learning”, and they make their own sterilization look like the only option to save our society.

The Author of this post mentions “The Hard Right” (and no, I don’t consider National Socialist to be part of the “Right” at all, they are socialists) at the end of the article. Although I don’t necessarily identify myself that way when asked about my political leanings, I usually do not like saying I am a “conservative” anymore either (as a good friend says, they’ve never conserved anything), because most prominent conservatives haven’t showed the intestinal fortitude of a helium balloon.

The fact that this conversation has to even be taking place in our society means we are on borrowed time, and you had better get your mind right concerning where we are at, and what needs to be done. If “conservatives” are considered to be the majority on “The Right”, I guess we really have no choice but to say and identify that we are the furthest extreme away from the center ( and those “mainstream” conservatives) as possible, and I guess that makes us “Hard Right” doesn’t it.

THE REAL REASON TAKE A KNEE IS A PROBLEM

There has been a lot of digital ink spilled over the past couple of days regarding the NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem.  There’s clearly a lot of people that are very offended by it, but this article isn’t going to be about that directly.  Sure, it was the intent of Colin Kaepernick to do something that many people would find exceedingly vexing to draw attention to his cause (which was the whole Black Lives Matter movement, but that has also been lost in the whole kerfluffle).  The First Amendment says that the government can’t make you salute the flag.  The NFL could enforce their rules, and they probably should, but that’s not what I want to talk about either, because it’s not even been a week and that’s been done to death.

The real reason this is a problem is because it’s an assault from the political left on our culture as Americans.  The SJW’s have invaded yet another space and are demanding that everybody virtue signal for the right causes or else.  No matter how you feel about the US Flag and the US Anthem, it’s an important part of the national culture.  And this has all been kicked into overdrive since Trump made his opinion on the matter known. And now, we’re seeing a never ending series of people dropping to their knees to virtue signal that they hate Donald Trump.

Couldn't Even Conserve The Ladies Room

And here’s where we get to the heart of the matter. Conservatives and Christians have been losing the culture since the 1960’s.  Every time there’s a new front that opens, we fall back.  Churches lose their tax exempt status if they say something that upsets a politician, and it’s just accepted, and we fall back. Abortion is shoved down our throats, and we fall back. The government taxes us to pay for abortion, and we fall back. Prayer gets thrown out of public schools and we fall back. Christmas becomes a hateful word, and we fall back. The government takes over health care, demands we pay for abortion and abortifacients, and we fall back. Marriage – a sacrament of the Church – is taken from us and perverted in ways that the Church can only consider to be heresy, and we fall back. Lets face it, our backs are to the wall. Barack Obama wanted to “fundamentally transform” the United States, and this is the sort of transformation he was talking about. We are looking at the very realistic possibility of a Post-Christian America, where the history that we had, that tells us who we are and where we have come from, is wiped out and the shiny new Secular Utopia comes into being. Confederate statues being wiped out, our national symbols and traditions ceasing to matter, the left is actively trying to wipe out our cultural memory so that they can reshape us into something new.

And sometimes, cultures die.  Sometimes, I look around, and I certainly feel like maybe I’m just a relic of a time long since passed.  I see “Conservatives” taking shots at Donald Trump when he says something right, but just in a way that they don’t approve of, and that’s why we keep losing these fights.  “Conservatism” is dead in the United States, and it’s because it has become infested with Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys who would rather go down to a glorious and noble defeat than push back against the enemies of western civilization for risk of offending them.  But here’s the thing – if you’ve felt the despair at seeing your culture thrown away and thought you were the last man left who cared, it turns out that you are not alone, there’s more of us than we get credit for.

And that is why the time has come for the Hard Right.  Conservatism is dead, and while we may continue to use the term “Conservative,” the movement that used the name has become so infested and overrun with quislings looking for a communist to surrender to, that it is no longer salvageable.  The way forward is The Hard Right Manifesto.

So, why does the whole taking a knee thing matter?  Because we aren’t willing to fall back anymore.  Welcome to the Hard Right.
