January 5, 2011

If you happen to be in a particularly vulnerable emotional space and need a hug...this is not the column you want to read right now.

The average human man does not spend enough time contemplating his utter insignificance.

You are one of about 6 billion like you, living on a common planet circling a common star in a universe with billions and billions like it.  The National Science Foundation estimates there are between 5 million and 100 million other species on our single little planet.

Our particular species hasn't been around very long, relatively speaking.  We've been here a few hundred thousand years (Homo Sapiens) on a planet that we have put at about 4.5 billion years old.  We are merely the most recent dominant species on this particular spinning rock. 

Our existence is a brief moment in historical terms.

We only started farming our food about 10,000 years ago and we are still hard wired as Hunter-Gatherers who have the thinnest veneer of civility draped silkily over our ruthless barbarity.  Can you name one single species that would not benefit if humanity were to suddenly disappear?

What about you?  How many people really care about you?  Of 6 billion, how many would take your place in front of a speeding bus or offer to take your terminal cancer?  Two hundred years from now, how many people will know you existed?  Probably not even your posterity!

For the most part a human only earns enough notoriety  to last a few generations in our discourse if he is an outstanding murderer or ruler of men.  Jesus is just about the only human whose name we know thousands of years later for good deeds rather than evil, and it could be argued that he had an advantage over most men. 

We are surely the most self-important species ever.

Yet we have a life span that is so short as to be meaningless when placed into perspective...except to us.

As you consider the weighty philosophical nuances of Restoration and find yourself risking an anxiety attack considering that ATF is run by an anti-gunner, take a moment and remember our true place and value in the larger scheme.

It may also help your blood pressure to remember that the human species is utterly, ruthlessly, disgustingly violent.  We kill one another for pleasure.  We kill one another for sport.  We kill for personal gain, water rights, hunting grounds, and we'll kill in blind rage over a breeding partner.

Violence is an essential component to everything that we do.  Our religions are militant.  Our politics are violent.  Our sports are all based upon conquest.

Raise a hand to a strange child and see if Mama doesn't try to rip your head from your shoulders.

We are violent beings.  Understand it.  Accept it.

Use the knowledge.

So, Patriots, if you think there is any way that you will ever live in a state of peaceful Liberty without violence, you are ignoring everything that we know about the species.

Restoration will see violence, from some quarter.

It's what we are...

...and in the big picture, it doesn't matter a whit...

Because violence is as insignificant as are we.


III Reloads to Liberty

by Hellesponte & Kerodin

January 4, 2011

I have had this column for about 9 months, and chose not to post it.  I considered using it in a book project I have coming soon.  I have been hesitant to put it out there for consideration for several reasons.  But all things have their moment, and the moment is now.

Concerned American offered a serious piece last night on the topic of Countervalue targeting, which makes this the proper moment for this column I have been holding.

It has long been my contention that the Liberal/Collectivist who enters a voting booth and pulls a lever in support of Liberal/Collectivist politicians and policies is un-American and an existential threat to the republic.  Whether he is motivated by good intentions or Marx matters not, for the end result is the same: The subversion of our Constitutional and Founding Principles injures every American.

So, the Leftist in America who votes for the Leftist agenda is as responsible for our ruin as is the Leftist politician who votes the laws into existence, the bureaucrats who write the regulations and facilitate enforcement, and the badges and guns who enforce the diktats through violence. 

The LEO who takes your firearm or tells you that you need a permit to protest, or puts his hands on you before you board an airplane is as treasonous to the Constitution as is the Politician who wrote the law, the bureaucrat who facilitates your prosecution, and the voter who pulled a lever for the politician in the first place and who sends money to anti-gun groups, and the Judge who let it all happen on his watch.

If we accept this premise as outlined in the previous three paragraphs, and we accept the premise that we are already in a real revolutionary war for Liberty (a war brought to us by the treasonous Left), does it not follow that your neighbor the Liberal voter and anti-gun supporter is as guilty as were Loyalists who worked on behalf of the King in support of his Armies and Navy killing Colonists?

If we accept all three of these points, we blur the line between CV and CF ever so slightly, but only insomuch as we accept that an unarmed Leftist voter is fighting for the revolutionary overthrow of our Constitutional Republic as is the armed LEO in the Stack coming over the threshold of a Patriots home.  In simple terms, they are equally evil as you exercise your Right to self defense.

If we agree on these points, the rest is simple arithmetic.

It is also genocide in the name of Self Defense.  Let us not hide from the brutal realities of the discussion.

The arithmetic:

For the sake of this discussion let us accept that the III Community, those who would actually follow in the footsteps of our Countrymen who met at Lexington and Concord with the arms of the Militiaman, is comprised of 3 million Patriots. (I am not sanguine the real number is anywhere close to 3 million)

Quantifying the number of OpFor is trickier, but we can paint with a broad brush and get close enough for Government work. 

There are about 225 million adults over 18 in the country.

As of April 2010, Gallup says 28% support the Tea Party.

So, for the sake of our discussion, 72% of our Countrymen do not support the ideals of the Tea Party, which are Constitutional ideals, so I think we can lump all 72% of our adults into the OpFor category.

That's 162 million.


III = 3 million (at most)

The quota per III Patriot works out to 54.

If III Patriots choose violence as a means of Restoration, or have no means left to them but violence, the arithmetic is simple.  If the workload is spread evenly (it won't be) then every III needs to take the fight out of 50+ people who stand in opposition to the Constitutional ideals of the republic.

In a straight Balkans/Africa type genocide, every III will end up running a few magazines through the average pistol or a couple magazines through the average AR to meet the quota, assuming aimed fire and not spray & pray.

In a Sherman-esque campaign tailored to the realities of a modern 4GW and 5GW environment, one could expect a lower emphasis on body count with a subsequent uptick of action against infrastructure and necessities, such as displacement as a result of house fires or winter disruptions of heating energy, to satisfy the quota of taking 50+ OpFor from the fight. 

The morality of a Scorched Earth variant and CV targeting is another matter, though I outlined my thinking on the matter as we opened the discussion.

If politics fails (or succeeds) and widespread violence is thrust upon the republic, it will simply be a furtherance of the existential war being waged right now as our economy is ruined, our freedom raped from us, our wealth and health stolen, our cultural values cast aside like rubbish and Patriots are murdered one at a time by Masters intent upon denying Liberty.

Our own professional war fighters today, in certain circumstances, advocate the mass killing of civilians as a strategic deterrence to wider war.  Some of our past military leaders have executed such battle plans.

Some would call that murder.  Others call it victory.

In war, your tribe will live or die.

In war, your wife and children will live or die.

You will live, or die.

In war, there are no rules.



Pop-up Targets are Easy

by Hellesponte & Kerodin

January 4, 2011

Have you ever hunted woodchucks?

The proper whistle will have the little furballs stand up, providing wonderful little pop-up targets.

Hunting woodchucks is not much of a challenge, it is an exercise of marksmanship rather than hunting prowess.

When TSA bumps knuckles against your wife's mons, they are whistling.  When you have the audacity to take issue, you are the little furball standing up for the crosshairs.

Comprehensive pat-downs are just one of your opportunities to self-select out of the Ruckus.  Our Masters have provided several ways for you to opt-out.

Do not make it that easy.  Watch for the pattern.  Government tends to use the same Training Manual across agencies, fine-tuned for the particular mission.  But the broad brush strokes are the same, and you can recognize the patterns if you simply look for them.

Prison Guards run a snitch the same way ATF and DEA run snitches.  The LEO Honeypots in the Patriot Community are the same as the Honeypots baiting kiddie porn perverts and tree huggers who believe in violence.  US Attorney's turn an informant the same way CIA turns an informant (though Intelligence Agencies have a larger toolbox that extends beyond brute force).  All LEO uses the same playbook for running surveillance ops, and a Stack is a Stack is a Stack.  The only real variables are determined by which version of the Training Manual was used, and the level of professional execution by the players on the ground.

Use your head and save your energy for the real conflict.

It will come, initiated by either Right or Left, or by collapse, but it must come for the status quo is not sustainable.  We are in one of those few places where all options on the table lead to the same place: Violence.

You are fighting, right now.

Fight smart.


The States

by Hellesponte & Kerodin

January 4, 2011

We spend quite a bit of time railing about the encroachment upon our Rights by the Federal Government.

Jefferson & Company knew that those who would be Masters would congregate in Government at the Federal level and try to pervert the system.  They addressed the matter in the Constitution proper, and reinforced the remedy in the 10th Amendment.  We sometimes spend so much time and energy complaining about the assaults from FedGov that we forget to look to our proper defenders: StateGov.

Remember that the Federal Government was created by the states to perform certain tasks that were best handled by a central body, and otherwise leaving each state free to run its own affairs.  Each state is, for lack of a better phrase, a nation unto itself, bound together with other states through the construct of the Federal Government that is a creation of the states, with no more power than the states choose to permit.

When the Feds reach too far into your cookie jar, the natural first defender of your Rights should be your State.  Ultimately you are responsible for your Rights, but the reason we even created the State is to serve as a defender of the tribe.  So, where is your Governor and Secretary of State in this fight against the FedGov beast that claims the power, and exercises the power, to regulate your life?

Gary Marbut's Firearms Freedom Act is a magnificent weapon in the war for Liberty.  Using firearms as the vehicle, the true issue being argued is States Rights.  The first battlefield, ironically, is the Federal Courts, where the States are essentially asking permission to exercise their Rights under the Constitution.

Once the process finishes in the Federal Courts, which will almost certainly be a necessary fail, then it will be up to the individual states to choose: Comply with FedGov's demand to be subservient, or nullify and be prepared to fight...literally.

Wyoming is the one State that actually wrote a penalty into their version of the FFA.  State LEO is authorized to arrest and prosecute Federal Agents who come into Wyoming and attempt to enforce Federal firearms laws upon Wyoming Citizens who are abiding Wyoming law and dealing with firearms that do not fall within the scope of Interstate defined by Wyoming, not FedGov!

Talk about a potential Ruckus!  For you folks in Wyoming, does your Legislature, Governor, and assembly of LEO have the grit to back up their law?  If FedGov decides to spank Wyoming, will your Governor use LEO and the Guard to stop a literal invasion?

Will other States come to the physical aid of Wyoming if things get to this point?

For you folks in Wyoming, I think it is very clear just how important politics is in this fight for Restoration.  If you vote the right people into your Governor's Mansion, Legislature, and County Sheriff offices, Liberty has a fighting chance.

Elect the wrong people, and they will fold either from lack of courage or for personal gain.

Politics matters.


Comfort in Knowing
by Hellesponte & Kerodin

January 4, 2011

I'm one of those guys who would like to know the hour of my death.  For me, there would be a particular comfort in knowing the when of it, if not necessarily the how. 

Denninger explains what we all know intuitively: The economy will not survive the status quo through the end of 2012.  Please read this to arm yourself with his educated insight.  In fact, I encourage every reader to send his link to at least ten people who you'd like to survive the Ruckus.

It is that important. 

Would you live differently if you knew when you would die?

While this is not new information for Patriots, I would suggest it helps define the battlespace.  As explained in yesterday's column (see below) this is a haymaker aimed at our head, and we may still duck, but you can only bob and weave for so long before you either counter-attack and win, or you get tagged and lose. 

The status quo is the only non-choice.

As Arctic Patriot points out lucidly, they are tightening the clinch and systematically taking away options.

They want a fight.  As I have pointed out before, when a serious fighter gets you in a good choke, you only have moments and you'd better make every one count.

Patriots, that means if you use Col. Cooper's color codes, you are in Yellow right now, and ready to shift into Orange.  You are adding to your prep, and you may not have much more time to load-in. 

Everything we do now must advance Restoration.  There can be no wasted energy.  Every move must make your position more defensible.  The easy years of your life are now behind you.

If ever there was a time to be rid of civility in your discourse with those who are responsible for our ruin, that time is now.  Do you know their names?  Will you remember?

Restoration will only happen one Patriot at a time.

Nothing has changed since yesterday, except that we are a day closer.

And, perhaps for some, our circumstances a bit more real.




Communism: Ground Gained

We too often fail to cut through the PC misdirection offered by our enemies within, so let us remind everyone right now: Liberalism is Communism in a cloak.

Below are the 10 points laid out by Marx.

Consider them and consider where the nation is today in reference to each.

Then, consider for each of the points which of our political parties advocate for policies and programs to achieve the stated goals.

1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of  land to public purposes.

2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.

5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.

6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State.

7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

8. Equal liability of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.

9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the populace over the country.

10. Free education for all children in public schools.


III Percent Patriots



Excerpt: There comes a time when civility is no longer appropriate as the only option on the table.  Dare we not offend the sensibilities of Liberals, Socialists, and Communists in our midst who are ruining and destroying our republic?  Are we to cower and sheepishly genuflect when we are scolded for the tone or choice of our words in the face of ruin, poverty, tyranny, and death?!

Are we so frightened of chastisement from insignificant men and women of the political Left with stained and darkened souls that we turn from our duties of Patriotism and shun our sacred obligation to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America?  We ask you, is not our republic worth the risk of being castigated?  Is the soul of our mighty nation no longer worthy of our fortunes, our lives, and our Sacred Honor?  Have we lost so much of our heritage, our courage, our mettle, and grit that we will stand idly by and permit the foolish and the stupid, who work hand-in-hand with evil people in our nation, that we will permit them to send us into eternal slavery and tyranny as the world has never before witnessed?

Excerpt: You are a fool if you do not believe that elements of the Left would use force, if they could, to compel you to comply with many of their edicts.  In drafting healthcare reform, they use the threat of financial fines, felony conviction and prison if you refuse to buy health insurance! 

How is that not only a degree or two removed from a pistol to the head? We are undeniably heading toward the same tyrannies known to Russians, Germans, and the Chinese.  It starts with Liberalism, advances to Socialism, and ends with Fascism, Communism, or some other tyranny…and death.

Excerpt: We have a culture of people whose first response to a physical threat is to dial 911, or worse, a lawyer.  We have a nation of people who will dump hot coffee on themselves, then sue the restaurant – and win!  We have a nation of educators who suspend children for drawing a picture of a handgun or for bringing a Boy Scout knife-and-fork kit to show and tell! 

We have a nation of people so removed from the food chain that many would starve to death if the local supermarket closed.  We have a nation of people who cannot truly grasp the hardships faced by most of the people in the world every day, and as a result we have a nation of people who have lost fundamental common sense.

Excerpt: The Bill of Rights articulates the natural rights of man, rights that are not bestowed by government, but rights that are innately ours as human beings.  These rights may not be taken from us.  These rights were written in plain language so that no clever interpretation and manipulation of the intent was possible.  These rights may not be restricted, narrowed, or infringed.  Any attempt to do so is a violation of the relationship between Man and Creator. 

Every narrowing, restriction, infringement, and clever interpretation imposed upon us in the years since our Constitution was ratified is simply a violation of our natural rights.

We hold that every violation of the Constitution and Bill of Rights by those in Government is an act of Treason, as these violations are unjust, undermining the fundamental foundations of our republic, breaking the pact between citizen and government, and desecrating the relationship between Man and Creator.  Any man or woman who enforces these unconstitutional laws on behalf of government is a treasonous soul and an enemy of Liberty and humanity.

Sons of Liberty Flag

Try not to make it to the Big League before it begins.

How do you know when you have made the Bigs?

You catch a Federal case.

When you earn real attention from our Masters, you'll know it...usually after it is too late.  Our Masters will tolerate quite a bit from folks, even Patriots who are rabble-rousing.  They really don't care if you are stocking up on rice and beans, even rifles and bullets.  They don't care if you call them names or incite a few misdemeanors or send them snarky little letters.  If you are trying to get their attention and you have not yet caught a Federal case, it's still amateur hour...or maybe you are valuable to them...

It's when you start to have an impact on the flow of dollars that you will earn real interest.  Write a report that negatively impacts the stock value of a few Fortune 50 companies, and you will soon have a genuine understanding of the term Lawfare. 

You may also be schooled on Constructive Possession.

There are many lessons you may be taught.  Right Now.

You will learn inside baseball details about the US Code that will make you ill. 

The world begins to move very, very quickly. 

You will be faced with stark choices that have never entered your mind, because you think you understand the rules.

You do not understand the rules, until you have been inside the machine.

Then your options are put on the table: 2 years if you take the deal, or 20 if you fight...and we'll add a Conspiracy case for your little dog, too...

You will learn that the power of a US Attorney is crushing.

Do not make it easy to take you out of play, Patriot.

And, it is oh, so easy...if they ever decide to do it.

The choice is theirs...not yours.

Truth, Justice & the American Way?

Not so much.

The DOJ conviction rate is 95% in a bad year, and pushes above 98% according to some stats.  The deck is not only stacked in their favor, they own the deck.  And the card table.  And the casino.  Do you understand?

Can you name any Federal bureaucracy that runs at a minimum 95% efficiency rate?  What does that tell you?

Do not make the mistake of thinking that you intimidate them just because they have not yet chosen to come for you...

The Point: If you are trying to incite Big Brother to notice you, go for it!  But, man up and roll bigger dice.

If you would prefer to make your preparations for it with relative impunity, just go about your business and avoid taking actions that will make it easy for Them to take you out of play, and do not give them a reason to take you out of play.  Don't telegraph about the details of your preparations or defensive measures.  Don't put a pistol in your belt, against your local laws, unless you are willing to use it when LEO spots you in the convenience store.  Avoid gratuitous violence.

Do not draw hyperbolic lines in the sand.  When you draw lines in the sand that you do not defend, it reveals you for what you are deep in your Soul...and some of that bad energy splatters on us, too.

There will be plenty of opportunities for a fight, if you want one, soon enough.  Be smart, stay off the radar, so that any fight you engage will be on your terms.

Simo Häyhä: One Man, One Rifle

262,000,000 people were murdered by  governments during the 20th Century.


Every day I strongly recommend everyone who comes to my site: Take a moment and visit Concerned American at Western Rifle Shooters.  Have you taken a good look at the time and effort that has been invested there to build such a utilitarian collection of practical knowledge? There is no wasted effort: Every resource is useful, and worth your time to investigate.

He also posts a few topics of the day, but he has a unique twist that is supported by a knack of finding relevant material from which one can learn.  The other day he posted videos from an old experiment that must be watched and understood by every person who hopes to survive whatever may come our way.  Milgram.  Click it.  Study it.  Burn it into your psyche and

He does not fall into the blog trap of posting a story, then shaking his head...his 2 cents are worth more than most...

Kerodin Glossary

Ruckus: This is when the conflict between Left and Right devolves into the realm of the physical.  Government may or may not be involved.

Verbal Ruckus: Discussions between Left and Right that have dropped the facade of civility, but not yet crossed the physical barrier.  Once they put their hands on you, welcome to a genuine Ruckus.

It: A Ruckus.  It may be started from any number of potential events. When it is on, the Ruckus is on.  The most important consideration when it is on: There are no rules.

What is a III Percent Patriot

Historians consider that about 3 percent of Americans took arms and challenged the King during the Revolution.

3 percent.  III Percent.  Threepers.


We exist today.

We are that percentage of Americans who have the tools and mettle of the Militiaman who stand and have drawn a hard line for the Hard Right of the political spectrum.

We are that cadre of American Patriots who refuse to yield further.  Our fathers and grandfathers permitted the insanity of Collectivism too much latitude, and it is we that History has called upon to set the republic back to her Constitutional principles.

The diseases of Liberalism and Collectivism are murdering the republic. 

We are simply Patriots who are finished passively backing up. We are Patriots who have decided to take action...and if you are an enemy to the Liberty of the republic, stand aside, shut your mouth, or face the consequences of trying to enslave a group of men and women who have no intention of accepting the chains.

The concept of the III Percent is a matter of historical fact and state of mind.  It is not a club or private group.  No Patriot need submit an application to any Leader seeking acceptance, and no entity may strip you of the III Percent title.

If you are an American who shares the ideals of that historic III Percent of Americans who took arms against the King and took to the field when we needed serious men and women who were willing to fight, kill and die for the ideal of Liberty, you are a III Percent Patriot.


Every single law on the books, ultimately, is enforced with the muzzle of a weapon.  It does not matter if the charge is failing to pay your property tax or jay walking, hosting a yard sale without a town permit, or murder, if you resist the punishment in any of these cases, Government will escalate until you yield or...the final step results
in the discharge of firearms. 
You forget this at your peril.

III Percent Patriots
A book examining the philosophical and practical challenges facing Constitutional Restoration, and a few of the key personalities
in the III Percent Movement.
By Hellesponte & Kerodin

Mr. Kerodin is an Author, Columnist, Speaker & Speech Writer, and Patriot.

"This is Washington DC, my friend - when you play at a certain level in this town, you will be elected, or convicted.  Sometimes, both.  The order of events is irrelevant." - Kerodin

"Liberalism, and Liberals, are ruinous to the republic, and must be marginalized if America is to survive.  Patriots must step to this challenge and risk the wrath of the Politically Correct, and do the work that must be done to honor our Fathers.  Liberals must be stopped, at any cost." - Kerodin

"No, I apologize for nothing.  I know the truth, regardless of what may be in the press.  I know that when I stand before Saint Peter, I will be granted passage.  If I am ever granted audience with God, I have nothing to fear.  I have lived the life He chose for me, and I still have much work to do..." - Kerodin

"No man looks forward into life when young and can imagine for himself the life I have lived.  But I am better for it.  I have been places never anticipated.  I have had experiences never dreamed.  I have met people who would have never otherwise been in my social or professional circle.  I have, many times, leaned upon the words of Winston Churchill - 'When you are going through Hell, keep going!'" - Kerodin

My family continues to promote my values where I can not.  They are Patriots.  If you ever meet my wife, you will meet the most loyal wife and Patriot in America.  She is brave, brilliant, and bold.  We fight Liberal stupidity together through the First Amendment.  Laws change - and one day I will stand with her again in the Second Amendment fight that she carries on when I must stand aside."  - Kerodin

Current political leaders are only the face of the problem confronting America today.  The underlying cancer eating the American Soul is Liberalism.  But for your Liberal neighbors, Liberal politicians would never be elected to office.

It is not sufficient to simply defeat Liberal politicians at the polls.  Liberalism must be defeated in our society and Liberals must be marginalized, or this disease will kill the republic.

Every patriotic business owner should immediately fire every Liberal on staff and hire an employee who respects the nation and our Constitution.  Why should any business owner suffer an employee who will simply vote for politicians who further ruin the company?!

The Liberals in your community must be ostracized and denied entry into your social circle.  These stupid people are responsible for the insanity that affects everything from your property taxes to the curriculum taught to your children.  Why would you break bread with them, when they are the reason your bread costs too much?  Why would any parent permit them access to their children, when they are responsible for ruining your child's future?


This book may not be for you.

If you consider yourself to be a Liberal or Progressive, go away. You are not permitted to buy this book. This book is written by patriotic Americans for patriotic Americans. This is a discussion among ourselves, and if you are a Liberal politician or you vote for Liberal politicians,
(Of the genus Stupidus Liberalis)  you are not invited to participate.

First, we will demonstrate that all politicians, judges, and government employees at the Local, State, and Federal levels who support federal Healthcare Reform, the Assault Weapons Ban, TARP, Stimulus I, Free Trade Agreements, PATRIOT Act, the new “Jobs” bill, or a host of other such Federal programs or initiatives, are guilty of Treason against the United States of America.

Secondly, businesses, multi-national corporations and special interest groups that support Liberal politicians and/or Liberal programs, Cap & Trade, Global Warming legislation, et cetera, are committing Treason against the United States of America.

Finally, we will demonstrate that those private Citizens who support or vote for any of these politicians—once the nature of the politician is known to the public—or programs are equally guilty of Treason by knowingly lending material aid and support to a Traitor.

Excerpt: The five most expensive parts of our national budget are:

1.      Social Security

2.      Medicare

3.      Medicaid

4.      Defense

5.      Interest on the National Debt

Numbers 1, 2 and 3 are wholly unconstitutional and brought to us by Liberals. 

Number 5 is wholly a result of numbers 1, 2 and 3!
