    Under the ideology of cultural Marxism and the framework of Marxist “Woke” ideologies, power must be taken from a majority population. Firearms, as noted by the Marxist and Chinese mass murderer Mao, are a form of political power. Mao wrote: Every Communist must grasp the truth: Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.What Mao meant was only the Communist Party should be allowed to have guns. For a Marxist revolution to succeed, the people must be disarmed. The left in the United States has long pushed for the disarmament of the population. Recently, the left has primarily...

    An Israeli ship named “Galaxy Leader” has reportedly been hijacked by Yemen’s Houthi militia in the Red Sea. The ship had 22 people on board, according to reports. Israeli sources said that the Houthis seized a vessel partially owned by Israel in the Red Sea. No Israeli nationals were on board the ship, according to the sources. Earlier on Sunday, Yahya Sarea, a spokesman for the Iran-backed Houthis, said that the group would target all ships owned or operated by Israeli companies or carrying the Israeli flag, according to the group’s Telegram channel.
  • Holton Township, Michigan establishes its own MILITIA to protect second amendment and declares it will not enforce new red-flag laws restricting gun ownership

    A Michigan township has established its own militia to protect the Second Amendment rights of its 2,500 citizens. Holton Township, in Muskegon County, passed a Second Amendment Resolution on Tuesday night establishing itself as a 'Second Amendment Sanctuary'. The resolution included an addendum establishing their very own militia. Under the changes, all legal residents with primary residence within Holton now have the opportunity to join the militia but must adhere to federal firearm checks. The town said they are adopting policies 'necessary for the security and rights of Holton Township residents.' 'The people of Holton Township, through their duly elected...
  • Terrorist Attacks in Israel Show the Threat of a Disarmed Populace

    The horrific terrorist attack on unarmed Israelis near the border of Gaza shows how useful and effective militias can be against lightly armed and armored raiding forces.Local militias are an innate response to existential threats. They are well-fitted to the nature of man.When men lived in small communities, every man was expected to aid in the defense of the community against outside forces, which amounted to everyone outside the tribe or nation. A militia is simply local men working together to protect against the threat of others who want to kill, rape, loot and destroy. Militias can band together to...

    Emerging details suggest that the recent attack against Israel didn’t just take months to plan, but years—Reuters even reported that the assault “followed two years of subterfuge” to lull Israel into a false sense of peace and safety—and after all that scheming, Hamas terrorists didn’t seek to destroy critical infrastructure, they didn’t attempt disrupt supply chains, they didn’t prioritize the obliteration of the “occupying” government’s buildings, and they didn’t go for strategic points like airfields and energy depots. They specifically targeted ordinary citizens, spreading absolute terror and brutality. [ SNIP ] Many of these civilians were caught completely off guard,...

    It will now be easier for Israelis to carry firearms for self-defense in the wake of the worst terror attack in the nation’s history. Israeli Minister of National Security Itamar Ben-Gvir announced on Sunday he has ordered officials responsible for issuing gun licenses to broaden its standards. As the death toll inflicted by terror group Hamas grew to over 600, Ben-Gvir said he wants more Israelis to be able to legally arm themselves. “Today I directed the Firearms Licensing Division to go on an emergency operation in order to allow as many citizens as possible to arm themselves,” he posted,...
  • South Africa: Using Only Pistols, Local Militia Stops 15 Armed Robbers with AK-47s Who Blew Up Armored Truck

    On Thursday, 9/21, local farmer militiamen in South Africa stopped a gang of 15 armed robbers armed with AK-47s who had just robbed an armored car, killing the driver. The local volunteers apprehended the fugitives after a high-speed chase, including a dangerous Mozambican criminal wanted for murder of a police officer. The robbery took place in Hoedspruit (Hat Springs) outside Polokwane in Limpopo Province, which were named Pietersburg and North Transvaal by the original settlers before the campaign to ethnically cleanse the Afrikaner language and culture from South Africa. Heavily armed attacks on armored cars are so common in South...

    U.S. Naval Institute ^ | February 2023 | Commander Jennifer Runion, U.S. Coast Guard
    While every coastal state has contributed to the decline of fish stocks to some degree, none surpass China’s impact. The 2019 IUU Fishing Index, which ranks coastal countries worldwide based on their vulnerability to, practice of, and response to harmful fishing practices, listed China as the top global offender, scoring 40 percent worse than the worldwide average. Furthermore, the United Nations found China’s distant-water fleet to have been underreporting their global catch size by a factor of 12. Countries in the Indo-Pacific region have lost patience with these illegal practices and have begun to push back.Many Chinese-flagged fishing vessels and...

    MARIPOSA, Calif. — Nearly 3,000 firefighters and first responders have flooded the Sierra foothills of Mariposa County battling the explosive Oak fire, but it’s the guys in camouflage fatigues and surplus war vehicles that have most alarmed some evacuees and monitors of extremist groups. As fire crews made headway Tuesday against a blaze that has roared through 18,000 acres, destroyed 25 homes and forced thousands to flee their homes, the presence of a self-described militia whose members handed out food and offered help to evacuees has raised concerns among some.

    The appearance of camouflage-clad militia members in the small Sierra foothills town of Mariposa as the Oak Fire raged nearby has sparked a furor in Mariposa County, with the local sheriff’s department praising the group for its help while some residents accused the militia of exploiting the disaster. The California State Militia 2nd Regiment — whose website features pictures of men in military fatigues, helmets and assault-style rifles preparing for “the unrest yet to come” — set up a mobile kitchen trailer from Saturday evening through Monday morning in the parking lot of a lumber store in Mariposa, just southwest...

    WASHINGTON, July 20 (Reuters) - A Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives panel on Wednesday began debating legislation to ban certain assault-style rifles such as those used in recent mass shootings, and another bill allowing lawsuits against firearms manufacturers.The bills face slim odds in the Senate, where they would need at least 10 Republicans allowing them to be brought up for debate. Republicans in the past have rejected similar bills, citing the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution dealing with the right to bear arms.

    May 20 (UPI) -- A proposed new Russian law doing away with soldier age restrictions suggests the country is struggling to sustain military troop requirements for its war on Ukraine. Two members of the United Russia Party introduced the proposed law. Andrey Kartapolov, head of the Russian state Duma, co-authored the bill with his deputy Andrey Krasov to allow people over 40 to join the military. Russians aged 18-40 and foreigners aged 18-30 can sign up for military contracts now. Russians older than 40 would be able to sign up for first military contracts under the proposed law, according to...

    A "Special Military Operation" vs a "Peoples War" Russia is not fighting a war, but a Special Military Operation, as its government calls it. This has severe implications as to the actual force it can bring to bear. Add to that its conscription system is only a limited version of historical conscription systems. Ukraine however is fighting something much closer to a 19th-20th century total war, a whole-society resistance. It is not perfect in this, but given the public will, which seems to be present, they can and almost certainly have raised larger numbers than Russia has or can, unless...

    More than half of Americans view right-wing militia groups as a threat to the U.S., with a third saying they pose an "immediate and serious threat" to the country, according to a poll from The Economist/YouGov. The poll was taken following the first anniversary of the Jan. 6 insurrection, when Trump supporters stormed the Capitol in an effort to prevent Congress from certifying the results of the 2020 election. Members of known right-wing extremist groups including the Oath Keepers, the Proud Boys and the Three-Percenters, have been charged in connection with the attack.

    Is this Field Day?” I asked through my car window on a chilly, rainy April morning in central Michigan in 2008. A lone man dressed in head-to-toe camouflage, whose hand was casually resting on an AK-47 rifle strapped across his chest, nodded and stepped aside on the narrow road. I drove ahead to a parking area next to an old, red brick farmhouse and several acres of soybeans. About 50 people were gathering at a spot where the fields met a wooded bog. I was outside the village of Bancroft, at what was indeed the Michigan Militia’s annual Field Day...
