The surrender of the Confederacy was indeed a sorrowful event. It allowed the radical Republicans, who were the ‘big govt.’ advocates of our day, to turn our nation into an empire. Read “The Real Lincoln.”
At least you mentioned tax day, the day millions file forms they’re not legally required to file for an amendment that was never ratified by enough states to become law:
FK – Funny how they started pushing ‘democracy,’ another manipulative lie, and not Liberty.
“Establishing democracy is the first step in the revolution.” – Karl Marx
Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on lunch. Liberty is a well-armed sheep contesting the vote.
Was the NSA really passed to fight the cold war when we were funding and selling grain to the Soviets and our banksters had financed their revolution?
Supposedly the affects of the Wells broadcast has been over-hyped over the years but the fact remains the average sheeple, even with mild distrust of ‘officials’ and govt. still usually blindly believe what they’re told by them and dis-believe any ‘fringe’ info they get from those who aren’t in positions of authority, aren’t wearing a suit or aren’t wealthy or in some other way ‘approved.’
One reason for the Nazis’ success in Germany was their opposition to the Bolshevik Jews who were working to communize Germany, Europe and the world. They succeeded in Russia with help from our banksters.
Is the CIA behind the ‘flat earth’ psyop or the ‘young Earth creationists’ or the ‘global warming’ alarmists?
It’s all about sewing confusion to prevent real organization among the ‘grassroots’ who are now so divided they can’t even agree on who their real enemies are, from fascists in the woodpile to brown-skinned ‘terrorists’ hiding in caves on the other side of the world to communists posing as liberals and progressives, all of whom firmly ‘believe’ in their version, sub-version or subversion of reality or someone’s ancient tribal propaganda, and all very willing to kill each other over it.
The sad reality is that the ‘elites’ are right about the common sheeple, in that most of them would rather die than think. Yet we still have a shadow of the system the Founders created and if enough would understand we’re supposed to be truly free here, not existing under statism or some interpretation of ancient tribal propaganda that wasn’t even written for us and act on that knowledge by shutting down the phone lines and email servers of our elected public servants much could be done to restore the Bill of Rights, the document that makes us exceptional.
FK – Just watched this last night. It’s several years old. Don’t remember all the interviews with locals from any other vids I’ve seen before but I’ve seen a lot. I don’t put a lot of faith in the ‘autopsy’ vid at the end. More recent claims/admissions are that it’s a hoax.
There’s a lot of things our ‘scientists’ don’t understand:
Lot’s of ignorant 19-year-olds die in wars because they are able to fight. If you don’t believe me try to carry a 50 pound pack and 200 rounds of ammo and a 10 lb weapon while doing double time after you turn 50.
During amerika’s not-so-civil war both governments, and the Confederacy was an official ‘legitimate’ government, had to resort to conscription. Whether either side was ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ in doing so I won’t get into it here if for no other reason than most wars are usually both ‘just’ and ‘unjust’ for various reasons. Search the ‘New York draft riots.’
If several state governments finally grew a backbone, which many claim will be necessary to restore Liberty here, and decided to defy some edict of our beast system or of one of our elected tools in the now red house or a ruling by a commie SCOTUS you can bet there’d be conscription again, on both sides.
I didn’t come from a ‘military family’ except for my father who ‘served’ in the 50s during the Berlin Crisis and some ancestors who fought in the War for Southern Independence. One of them came from a slave owning family and my relatives want to think he fought for the Union, which he may have.
I voluntarily joined the military back in the 80s before it was ‘cool’ for the average mush head to do so because the stink of the Vietnam fiasco(from which we should have kept our troops home and had them kill our commies here first) and vividly remember a female cousin asking me if I could somehow ‘get out’ of being activated for what became Desert Storm. I also remember the looks one would get if the sheeple thought you were military. There were no yellow ribbons around trees in pre-gulf-war days.
The meaning of her question still haunts me. Do we ever fight for a ‘just cause?’ Is the petrodollar, which goes a long way to providing the standard of living we enjoy here a ‘just cause?’ Again, maybe that’s a question for another time. But my cousin’s reasoning, I’m sure, was not because of any great political understanding, because at that time I was not really ‘awake’ and I know she’s still politically oblivious after all these years, at least beyond voting for a candidate based on whether or not it meets her standards of ‘morality’ which come not from years of thought or education but from years of mindlessly attending church.
I don’t remember if I attempted to explain to her that it would be wrong to try to ‘get out of it’ if for no other reason than that would be grossly unfair to my fellow Marines and to some sense of camaraderie that all people in such situations should feel on some level. I really think I just stared at her in disbelief, and disgust.
But then our American individualism may be too far advanced for that. The zombie apocalypse that’s on our doorstep and in Europe’s living rooms due to our failure to hunt our white “Liberal”(commie) trash to extinction may prove this.
The point of worrying about what she asked me is this: There are real monsters in this world and sometimes we do have to band together to kill the cave bear. This will likely never change no matter how often moronic, dangerous, real and false pacifists claim so.
I vividly remember a fellow Marine reservist saying one day, way before the 9/11 ‘false flag’(to whatever degree), that there’d never be another ‘conventional’ war and the next one would be nuclear. Such was the propaganda of the times. Our drones, satellites and aircraft carriers and other assorted tech exist on a slender thread of electricity that is not guaranteed to continue to flow.
There are many memes floating around that remind us of a Japanese General saying how dangerous it would be to invade America because “There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.” On Parris Island there are airstrips that were built during WWII because during that time they had reduced boot camp to six weeks and were flying them straight out to war. But they were still training them.
From my time in the militia I can tell you that the average patriot is not ready to go to war at the drop of a hat. If you get ‘American men'(very loosely defined) to volunteer and show up overnight to fight some true organized force they would die like flies. During the American Revolution there were times when the militias fought admirably and won the day and others when they ran screaming like little girls. That is war.
From my time in the military I can tell you how hard it is to maintain discipline and readiness among those who have been trained. Before the first Gulf War we received some training but when we were actually over there I saw many issues that had not been addressed.
During our time in Saudi Arabia serving as Combat Military Police one of our sergeants told us a female Marine had been caught sending 50 grand in cash and checks home in a sea bag. I’ll leave how she earned that up to your imagination.
That ‘Intel’ could have been a product of the rumor mill that always exists in such situations but it wouldn’t surprise me. There were times when female Marines certainly distracted me. Ignoring human biology and the communist propaganda that uses it is not only childish but dangerous.
I constantly see morons(trolls) online claiming we could never stand up against the ‘modern’ military. The same liars will claim the empire lost in Vietnam because they couldn’t fight an organized guerrilla campaign when a Vietnamese general allegedly said after the war that it was won over here where our real enemies have always been. Even if he didn’t make the statement it’s certainly true.
Guerrilla warfare is the oldest form of killing our fellow kind in an organized fashion. The fights over waterholes or shelter or hunting grounds were carried out in such a fashion. They didn’t likely stand back with flags and diplomats and have gentlemanly discussions before or after. That came later.
A constant meme among ‘pro-gunners’ and Second Amendment activists is more or less ‘what would the holocaust have been like if the Jews had been armed and fought back.’ A tiny ‘volunteer’ force did fight back in the Warsaw Ghetto. It was too little too late.
But then as now too many fail to understand, because thinking is the hardest work to be done and most avoid it at all costs, that sometimes humanity’s back is thrown against the wall and there is no other choice but to kill or be killed.
As I used to write in comment sections: ‘Millions will dig the ditch that they’re told to dig then wet their pants as the machine gun bolts slam home and die stupidly wondering “How did this ever happen to me?”
Common sense, something in severe short supply nowadays, tells us that not everyone can or should be ‘on the front line.’ There are many ways to fight, with or without advanced technology. We used to learn in school how Betsy Ross sewed the flag. Now they walk and spit on it and we’re stupid enough to call them our ‘fellow Americans.’
Stars and Stripes responded to the letter with a July 22 headline that read, “Army To Recruiters: Treat Armed Citizens As Security Threat.”
According to Stars and Stripes, the letter came at the beginning of a week in which citizens were organizing to stand guard at recruitment stations throughout the country: “Armed citizens — some associated with activist groups and militias — were standing vigil outside recruiting centers in Wisconsin, Georgia, Tennessee, Idaho and elsewhere this week, saying they want to provide protection to service members barred from carrying firearms on duty.”
The volunteerism follows last week’s heinous attack on military offices in Chattanooga, Tennessee, whereby Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez allegedly drove up to one office and opened fire from inside his car before going to a second military center, where he was able to fatally shoot four Marines and one sailor. News quickly spread that the military personnel were unable to defend themselves via policies mandating gun free zones on U.S. military bases, recruitment offices, etc., so citizens stepped in to fill the gap.
The military blog This Ain’t Hell published the USAREC letter in full; here is a pertinent excerpt:
Recruiters will not acknowledge the presence or interact with these civilians. If questioned by these alleged concerned citizens; be polite, professional, and terminate the conversation immediately and report the incident to local law enforcement and complete USAREC Form 958 IAW USAREC 190-4 (SIR)
A similar posture has been struck by Marine recruitment offices in some parts of the country.
FK – We need “Liberal”(commie) trash season. We desperately need it now…
Act politically but prep for what history shows will have to be done. It’s way past time to prep for what will be required.
FK – I knew what the Marxist mutt would do: Sell more guns and ammo than the klintons ever thought about, wake lot’s of sheeple up and piss lots of people off, and maybe, just maybe, do something so arrogant that even the most pathetic and cowardly ‘conservative’ or ‘libertarian’ or ‘pro-gunner’ would finally accept and prepare for the reality of what will be required.
Governments will always be able to get guns so we must always be better armed than them.
War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.
I believe in adequate defense at the coastline and nothing else. If a nation comes over here to fight, then we’ll fight. The trouble with America is that when the dollar only earns 6 percent over here, then it gets restless and goes overseas to get 100 percent. Then the flag follows the dollar and the soldiers follow the flag.
I wouldn’t go to war again as I have done to protect some lousy investment of the bankers. There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket.
FK – The Bill of Rights is what makes us exceptional. If it’s not OK for the government to treat us like jackasses then it’s not OK for the corporations to treat us like jackasses. Memorial day was created for Yankee soldiers who died while participating in the plunder and rape of the southern states.
