SOF Soldiers at Bundy Ranch?


There is no hard information on whether this guy is the same guy in America's Secret Soldiers (scenes from the documentary at the end of the embedded video). However, nothing would surprise me. If the BLM used former (or even active) SOF, that means the regime was expecting and possibly wanting a fight.

No-Win Scenarios

From The Captain's Journal (a radio host, not the captain)

Well, Andy, with a handful of minutes to spare, I have complied with your law.
Your hateful, unconstitutional affront to my rights.

After a year of thinking it over, of going back and forth, of deciding where duty and honor called me to be, this is where I am.

I am ashamed to say that fear was one of the factors in my decision. I am a public person, it is well known that I own an AR-15. I wrote a newspaper column about it when I bought it 20 years ago. I have talked about it on the radio, on television and in web broadcasts ever since.

Further, I’ve got a Democrat district attorney – whose election I opposed – and half the cops in town hate me. So if I don’t register today, there’s a good chance I get arrested tomorrow.

And with five kids still at home, I can’t afford to be the test case.

I’d be a felon, I’d lose my job, I’d lose my house, I’d lose my right to vote and own guns.

And you’d win.

The radio host says he will draw the line at confiscation. But when they start doing that, they will have set the terms of engagement simply by knowing who has the guns.

The regime is very good at giving the impression of a no-win scenario. This illusion is not just their greatest strength, it is their only strength. The solution: don't believe in a no-win scenario.


The Startfleet Academy made the Kobayashi Maru on the belief that cadets would attack the problem head on, fighting on the developers's terms of engagement. Kirk changed the terms of engagement in a way not even his best friend (Spock, who conceptualized it) could foresee.

Our enemies in the real world believe that everyone will cower under threats, or fight under their terms of engagement (fighting a minority resistance in isolated pockets). The regime is no doubt changing their strategy (which will have to be large scale) after the united front they met at Bundy's Ranch, but there is always a way to win.

Harry Reid calls Bundy supporters "Domestic Terrorists"






From Infowars.

During a ‘Hashtags & Headlines’ event at the Paris Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Reid referred to Bundy supporters as “Nothing more than domestic terrorists,” adding, “I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.”


Harry Reid, you need to gaze at yoursself in the mirror. You are the terrorist. Terrorism is using fear to push a political agenda. Your attempt to intimidate a family failed miserably.

Law Flows From The Barrel Of A Gun

The assault on Cliven Bundy's ranch, the assault on the Branch Dividian compound, and the assault on the Weaver's property are extreme examples of a situation that is so common we all experience it. Every law is enforced through the threat of violence.

Don't obey the law, then you get arrested or pay a fine. Those who refuse are either fired at on the spot, tased (those who have heart conditions are at extreme risk from electrocution), or a team of mall ninjas armed with weapons of war bust into their home at night, generally trigger happy enough to fire at anyone even remotely perceived as a "threat." Even minor infractions are ultimately backed up by a class of people whose sole job is to inflict harm on whatever is deemed to be a "threat," whether that "threat" is an unarmed elderly, or a small dog, or a real criminal.

What is law exactly? It is supposed to be a code of conduct to ensure civilized discourse in a group of people, so that no one may be deprived of rights, property or their own bodies. Today, that is called natural law.

Unfortunately, the term "law" can be rationalized to mean anything, just as "freedom" is. Think about it: many on the left see freedom as freedom from debt, poverty, uncertainty, and ultimately responsibility. Well, law has been twisted the same way. Instead of being a neutral set of rules, it has become the lethal enforcement of a group's moral view. The prevailing moral view around the world is that everyone's behavior must be regulated, and their property annexed (wealth is property too) to serve a common good. This view is not just restricted to Marxism. Fascists believe the state comes first. The majority of Muslims believe Allah comes first. Across the political spectrum are those who would censor the arts, believing that "decency" comes first.

This social contract fails because not everyone has equal needs and not everyone is altruistic. Unfortunately, this fact is not lost on those who believe that the common good comes first, and the solution is to use violence. Ranchers and "sustainable" power require a lot of space. Solar power, as feeable as it is compared to more traditional power, brings in more revenue than a single family ranch. From the view of the environmentalists, the Earth has more rights than people. So the troops march in.

Even natural law needs to be enforced from the barrel of a gun. That is why we have a 2nd Amendment. The only question is, are we so indoctrinated into servitude that we won't use it? The ending of the siege on Bundy's ranch gives hope that we are not.

Harry Reid: "It's not over."



The harder their jackboots stomp, the more the ice cracks beneath their feet. There's a lot of cold water down below.

Captain America: Winter Soldier

I went and saw this movie after seeing the praise by libertarians over the theme of out of control government. That theme is very strong in this movie, with the majority of SHIELD personnel turning on Steve Rogers (Captain America) and Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow) when they discover a surveillance drag net eerily similar to the one revealed by Edward Snowden (there is more to the villain's plot than just surveillance, but I do not want to post spoilers). Yet this does not displace the characters as many political films do; their pasts, flaws, motivations and struggles are told well enough that it could have stood on its own.

Natasha finally gets more than just a small role as well.



I am truly surprised Hollywood even greenlighted this movie.

Clive Bundy wins, BLM retreats


The good news is here. This was just a battle though. The regime is still waging a war. A cold war, but as demonstrated by this standoff, can very easily go hot.

More on the BLM-Harry Reid Connection


Kit Daniels
Infowars.com
April 11, 2014
The Bureau of Land Management, whose director was Sen. Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) former senior adviser, has purged documents from its web site stating that the agency wants Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s cattle off of the land his family has worked for over 140 years in order to make way for solar panel power stations.
The first segment of the document pulled by the feds from BLM.gov.
The first segment of the document pulled by the feds from BLM.gov.
Deleted from BLM.gov but reposted for posterity by the Free Republic, the BLM document entitled “Cattle Trespass Impacts” directly states that Bundy’s cattle “impacts” solar development, more specifically the construction of “utility-scale solar power generation facilities” on “public lands.”
“Non-Governmental Organizations have expressed concern that the regional mitigation strategy for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone utilizes Gold Butte as the location for offsite mitigation for impacts from solar development, and that those restoration activities are not durable with the presence of trespass cattle,” the document states.

Another BLM report entitled Regional Mitigation Strategy for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone (BLM Technical Note 444) reveals that Bundy’s land in question is within the “Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone and surrounding area” which is part of a broad U.S. Department of Energy program for “Solar Energy Development in Six Southwestern States” on land “managed” by BLM.
“In 2012, the BLM and the U.S. Department of Energy published the Final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) for Solar Energy Development in Six Southwestern States,” the report reads. “The Final Solar Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement assessed the impact of utility-scale solar energy development on public lands in the six southwestern states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah.”

Dana Loesch: The Real Story Behind The Bundy Ranch Harrassment

By now you’re familiar with the standoff between the federal government, i.e. the Bureau of Land Management, and 67 year-old rancher Cliven Bundy. (If not, check the backstory and my radio interview with him here.) The BLM asserts their power through the expressed desire to protect the endangered desert tortoise, a tortoise so “endangered” that their population can no longer be contained by the refuge constructed for them so the government is closing it and euthanizing over a thousand tortoises. The tortoises, the excuse that BLM has given for violating claims to easements and running all but one lone rancher out of southern Nevada, is doing fine. In fact, the tortoise has lived in harmony with cattle in the Gold Butte, Clark County Nevada for over a hundred years, or as long as Cliven Bundy’s family has lived on the land as ranchers. In fact, the real threat to it is urbanization, not cattle.

A tortoise isn’t the reason why BLM is harassing a 67 year-old rancher. They want his land. The tortoise wasn’t of concern when Harry Reid worked BLM to literally change the boundaries of the tortoise’s habitat to accommodate the development of his top donor, Harvey Whittemore. Whittemore was convicted of illegal campaign contributions to Senator Reid. Reid’s former senior adviser is now the head of BLM. Reid is accused of using the new BLM chief as a puppet to control Nevada land (already over 84% of which is owned by the federal government) and pay back special interests. BLM has proven that they’ve a situational concern for the desert tortoise as they’ve had no problem waiving their rules concerning wind or solar power development. Clearly these developments have vastly affected a tortoise habitat more than a century-old, quasi-homesteading grazing area. If only Clive Bundy were a big Reid donor.

Militias are moving in to support the Bundies.

The BLM has been receiving reinforcements of its own.

Depending on where this goes, I guess we will see whether those billions of rounds of government ammunition are used.

The timing of the Nevada situation

The timing of the fed's siege on Clive Bundy's ranch is very suspicious. Indeed, there are only 9 days left until April 19th.

April 19th is a special day to constitutionalists.
The first shots of the War of Independence were fired on April 19th, 1775.
The first shots fired between the Confederacy and Union occurred on April 19th, 1861.
The siege on Waco lasted from Feburary 28 to April 19th, 1993. 
 On April 19th, 1995, Timothy McVeigh bombed the federal building.

It is possible that the endgame of the siege on Clive Bundy's ranch has been pre-planned to end violently on the 19th, possibly as a deliberate provocation or false flag. That does not mean it will, and that does NOT mean Clive should be abandoned, but any possibility should be considered.

School stabbing spree

But, but, the progressives said that banning guns would improve safety!

A 16-year-old boy swinging at least two knives went on a stabbing and slashing spree at a high school near Pittsburgh Wednesday morning, leaving as many as 19 classmates and one adult injured.
A 60-year-old staffer and seven of the injured teens suffered serious wounds, and many were undergoing surgery by noon, officials said.

A gun would have deterred this from happening. Will the politicians start legislating knife control? It is 100% possible. The UK already has strict knife laws. The progressives, who believe that every inanimate object is a corrupting influence, won't stop until they have dragged everyone back to the stone age.

Serene Sunday

I do space art occasionally. The TV show The Universe is my main source of inspiration.
   The Great Cycle

 A new solar system forms, rising from the ashes of a supernova. Gases from the resulting nebula collapse to form a new star, which in turn pulls in additional gas and dust to a disc. Mutual gravitation between grains and rocks slowly coalesce into planets.

                                   
Vanadis
A work in progress of a 3D scene that will have moons and asteroids, the set piece of a story. Vanadis is a Gas Dwarf, an intermediate planetary class between Super-Earths (2-5 Earth Masses) and Gas Giants. The blue color largely comes from Rayleigh Scattering (which produces the blue color of the sky and water), though the presence of methane also contributes (by absorbing red, leaving green and blue).

Spatial Tension
Two of several comet fragments, pulled to pieces by tidal forces, careen toward the planet Iodes, to produce explosions equivalent to ten million megatons. Tidal forces exerted on the moon produce geothermal effects, including vulcanism.
Uusi Maa
Inspired by the discovery of Kepler-22b, the first planet that is believed to be similar to Earth.

Rule 5 Marina Corina Machado

Marina is Venezuela's anti-socialist leader. She was recently charged with treason by the ruling socialist government for "anti-constitutional activities" and "inciting civil war" (I guess jackbooted thugs shooting innocents on government orders is not an act of civil war, socialists live in a bizzaro world), but has not been apprehended so far.

From Wikipedia:

Personal

Machado was born 7 October 1967[1] as the "eldest of four daughters [of] a steel entrepreneur and an accomplished psychologist".[3] She acknowledges a "childhood protected from contact with reality" in a "conservative, staunchly Catholic family", that included education in Venezuelan private schools and U.S. boarding schools, and trips to Europe.[4] Her ancestors included the author of the 1881 classic Venezuela Heroica and a relative who was killed in an uprising against Venezuelan dictator Juan Vicente Gómez.[4]
Machado has a degree in industrial engineering from Andrés Bello Catholic University and a Master's degree in finance from Instituto de Estudios Superiores de Administración (IESA, business school) in Caracas.[3][5][6]
In 1992 Machado – a mother of three – started Fundación Atenea (Atenea Foundation), a foundation using private donations to care for orphaned and delinquent Caracas street children; she also served as chair of the Oportunitas Foundation.[5][6] After working in the auto industry in Valencia she moved in 1993 to Caracas.[3] Because of her subsequent role in Súmate, Machado left the foundation so that it would not be politicized.[5]

Carmona Decree

According to The Christian Science Monitor, she also faces treason charges for signing the Carmona Decree during the 2002 coup attempt in Venezuela.[4][15] Machado says she wrote her name on what she believed to be a sign-in sheet while visiting the presidential palace.[4][15] The charges carry a penalty of more than a decade in prison; the trial was suspended in February 2006 because of due process violations by the trial judge, and has been postponed several times.[16]

2014 Venezuelan protests
Machado has been one of the most visible leaders of the opposition demonstrations against President Nicolas Maduro that have unleashed the country's worst civil disobedience in a decade. Machado helped turned sporadic student demonstrations that began in January into a nationwide protest movement. Venezuela's Congress on March 18, requested a criminal investigation of Machado for crimes including treason in relation to her involvement in anti-government protests.[38] On March 20, Machado responded to legal accusations made against her saying, "In a dictatorship, the weaker the regime is, the greater the repression".[39]

Anti-gun democrat ran guns for Chinatown mafia

But, but, weapons of war don't belong on our streets! That's what Obama said! Of course, it depends on who has those weapons of war. Criminals, whether they occupy the shadowy underworld of a city, or hold public office, never want their victims to have guns.




This guy had been on Piers Morgan campaining for gun control. Below is a screenshot from Twitchy.

DHS-FEMA exercise portrays "Free Americans against Socialist Tyranny" as enemies


This exercise covers the imposition of martial law after and Earthquake but starting on page 125, discusses combating a group called Free Americans against Socialist Tyranny. As evidenced by the screenshot above, being against Socialism is now unpatriotic. Anyone who is libertarian and any government employee who places their oath before their career is an enemy of the state (PDF here).

Police shoot WWII veteran for refusing medical care

I'll admit, it's getting less fun to blog because the negativity seems to be accelerating at the equivalent of multiple Gs. But, someone has to spread the news, and its the blogosphere who spread what both the establishment media (the alphabets) and the controlled opposition (fox, rush, hannity) censor.

So, the latest in bad news. Three cops shoot a WWII veteran for refusing medical care. The claim is that they thought he was pulling a knife, but there is no hard evidence of that. The cops that did it are not even punished. Silence from cops all around the nation as usual.

Rule 5: Purim

Yeah, I know I am three days late and three Berneke Bucks short on the timing of this post.

There are a fewmisguided pseudo-religious leftists who cite religious text as reason for citizen enslavement gun control. Yet, the theme of armed citizens can be found there too, in the Book of Esther. Queen Esther was born as a Jewish orphan, and became the consort of King Ahaseurus of Persia. After a plot by the country's prime minister (known as Haman) to inflict a holocaust was known, she was influential in getting the Jews to arm themselves.

Well, she didn't look like that, but this is a rule five post after all ;)

Officer Peterson admits he would follow any order, including orders to round up Jews

The money quote right here:
Just wanted to thank you for the very fair article on the Police officer in CT. While yes, the conversation got very heated, once he [Officer Joseph Peterson] was seen as a cop, he should have stepped WAY back. A lot of news articles are putting my quote in of me saying he would put Jews in Ghettos as the reason he went off. He actually went off well before that. I literally asked him if a law was passed to put Jews in the Ghettos, would you? He literally said "Now you are being silly...but if its the law, I enforce it; I don't make them."

Be very careful what you wish for, Peterson. In this country, the oppression of the Jews is not forgotten, and neither are the events that enabled it. Including and especially gun confiscation. Americans will not passively accept their fate. The very fact that so many gun owners are refusing to comply with your stupid and crazy law is proof of that.

As for the rest of the thin blue line. His own precinct did put him on paid leave (while anyone else who made a similar threat would have been arrested), while the silence from police nation wide is deafening.

Hardship Exemption: Obama dictates that EVERYBODY is exempt from Obamacare

In a tacit concession to Ted Cruz's prediction that this "law" would never work, HHS has added on the administration's orders a "hardship exemption." This a creates a loophole that allows anyone to opt out.

In another tacit concession to accusations that he is becoming a dictator, Obama has threatened to veto bills that would force him to obey his own laws (credit: EatGruelDog).

Crack propagation accelerates continuously. All those people who are not signing up, don't sign up! Regardless of what concessions Nero throws to fend off the opposition. You are the unwilling wedges in the arch of the socialist state. If even one stone fails, the whole thing comes crashing down.

Democracy in action

Kim Il Sung was reelected as president of North Korean with 100% of the vote.

100% of the vote for only one candidate. It IS called the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, so it must be a democracy, right?

To the hard left (increasingly the majority) of the Democratic Party, this must be exactly what they think of when they mention democracy. Well, it IS the same party that enforced slavery and segregation, and formed the KKK, so no surprise there.
