  • Some thoughts on how we might get from where we’re at now to a Second Civil War

    Lt. Col. Robert F. McTague, U.S. Army (Ret.) Best Defense office of Second Civil War affairs If we have a second Civil War, trying to understand what is happening will feel more like Ukraine in 2014 than Virginia in 1861. Our first Civil War was primarily about slavery, but that was in the context of social and economic models in the South that were ripe for extinction. The South’s reaction was to launch a last-ditch effort to maintain and prop up its way of life at all costs, so it was visceral and violent. Likewise, Trump’s election was an angry,...

    The takedown of the Puerto Rican power grid by Hurricane Irma will, we hope, provide a teaching moment. The United States power grid is vulnerable, and the consequences of a widespread failure, especially if lengthy, will be a disaster of monumental proportions. This should not be a new realization. Serious analysts such as the Foundation for Resilient Societies and the EMP Commission have been warning us for a long time. The warnings have been ignored or even actively opposed by the electric power industry. America's electric grid can be brought down by sabotage or by natural forces, such as the...

    US survivalists stock up as disasters roil planet; nuclear war threat looms By Reuters - September 23, 2017 @ 10:01am NEW YORK: Two earthquakes, three monstrous hurricanes and the North Korean missile crisis have US survivalists convinced that the end of the world is nigh. And they are clearing store shelves to stock bunkers in anticipation of Earth's final chapter. Sales of freeze-dried food, gas masks and other survival equipment have spiked in recent weeks as so-called "preppers" get ready to ride out any disaster, whether natural or man-made. Inspiring their actions: images of people helpless against floodwater from Hurricanes...

    Far Left Watch ^ | August 29, 2017 | Far Left Staff
    The Austin based Anti-fascists group, Red Guards Austin, has been gaining prominence in the Texas Antifa movement. As we have previously reported, they are a self described autonomous Marxist-Leninist-Maoist collective and their website contains multiple reports on their confrontational and often armed demonstrations. They also openly advocate for violent revolution against capitalism. “we must seriously take up the task not only of self-defense on the personal and community level, but we must also struggle to unite all genuine antifascists behind the necessity of revolution. Revolution means the long fight for communism and nothing less.” In a recent blog titled...

    If you consider buying a farm or you already have some field and want to use it for this purpose, you would need to know about 10 easiest goat breeds to raise. First of all, you need to know why to choose goats instead of cows, pigs, or sheep? They give the same product as these three breeds, but products of cows, pigs, and sheep are more in demand. Well, that is true, but, when you look at the numbers, you will see that raising goats is more profitable and better in every matter than keeping these three. First of...

    I either read or dreamed that I read in one of the SHTF preparedness manuals that one of the religious orders usually has a canning facility set up in their halls so members can get ready for the future and save via economy of scale. Was that the Jehova's Witnesses? Can nonbelievers use their facility?

    On Friday, Michael Savage -- conservative talk show host and Berkeley Ph.D. in nutritional ethnomedicine -- referenced Nathaniel West's classic 1939 novel about the burning of Los Angeles, The Day of the Locust, to describe what will occur in the USA should Trump be brought down by his assorted "Globalist" enemies. People will “resort to mob violence” when they “are finally aware of the fact that they’ve been tricked by their society, and that no matter how hard they work as middle class people” they are denied.“That is what’s going to happen in this country,” Savage said. “You have not...

    President Trump may be chief of state, head of government and commander in chief, but his administration is shot through with disloyalists plotting to bring him down. We are approaching something of a civil war where the capital city seeks the overthrow of the sovereign and its own restoration. Thus far, it is a nonviolent struggle, though street clashes between pro- and anti-Trump forces are increasingly marked by fistfights and brawls. Police are having difficulty keeping people apart. A few have been arrested carrying concealed weapons. That the objective of this city is to bring Trump down via a deep...

    The Federalist ^ | June 5, 2017 | Clifford Humphrey
    Kathy Griffin’s recent ISIS-like outrage against President Trump justly sparked condemnations from both the Left and the Right, despite her subsequent attempts to transform herself from aggressor to martyr. Sadly, such a violent statement is simply par for the course these days. Yet if Trump really is the tyrannical fascist the Left believes him to be, then why should they not want to kill him? Sic semper tyrannis! Indeed, the American revolutionaries often declared that “Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God.” But using violence as an appeal to heaven is a last resort, a sign we have reached the...

    We all know a guy. You know. That Guy. The one who 'has a plan' when the Zombie Apocalypse' happens (it won't). That plan usually consists of holing up in a mall or a grocery store, brandishing ridiculous weapons, and may have taken a martial arts class once. There's a survival variant, too, and I'm gonna tell you all about it. You might find that you're a That Guy. There's no shame in it. The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem. I was a mall ninja once, and I'll admit it, I still like overly complicated...

    Once again, the left has attempted to show outrage over the rights of the American people being used to have credible debate. Our political class, along with the violent protest groups that they support have attempted to serve notice that those of us who believe in the American way must be silenced, and must be forced to keep our opinions and beliefs to ourselves. Between the progressives/ socialists dinosaurs called the Democrats, the socialists throughout our academia and the media, and the basement dwellers creating chaos in the country, it is going to get worse before it gets better.

    “Civilization has been aptly called a ‘thin crust over a volcano.’ (Liberals) are constantly picking at that crust.” -- Thomas Sowell After Hollywood jackass Jimmy Kimmel was criticized for exploiting his son’s illness to push his political agenda and incorrectly insinuating that surgeries for newborns weren’t covered before Obamacare, he did a follow-up on the subject where he said, “I would like to apologize for saying that children in America should have health care. It was insensitive, it was offensive, and I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me.” Drop dead, Jimmy Kimmel, you colossal ass....

Donald Trump’s campaign was taking an unprecedented turn, with the candidate baiting gun-rights supporters to exert their influence and suggesting that a loss in November would be evidence of a rigged system....

    TEL AVIV – While the international community and news media focus on North Korean missile tests and the country’s nuclear program, one expert warned on Sunday that North Korea may be secretly assembling the capability to take out significant parts of the U.S. homeland via an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack. Dr. Peter Vincent Pry is executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security and is the chief of staff of the Congressional EMP Commission. Speaking on this reporter’s talk radio program, Pry pointed to two North Korean satellites that are currently orbiting the U.S. at trajectories he...
