SEAL Training & Trained Seals
by Hellesponte & Kerodin
November 20, 2010

Consider: Anyone familiar with BUD/s knows that one mental and physical technique used to weed out the weaker minds and bodies is to put Sailors in the cold pacific surf until they reach the very limits of physiologic ability, skirting hypothermia.  A physician is on-hand to monitor core temperatures and enable Instructors to push and push and push, right to the edge. 

At the right moment the Sailors are called from the surf and allowed to circle a fire...just beyond the warmth.  They can see it, they know that a single step nearer the fire will provide some comfort.  They stand there, shivering uncontrollably, teeth chattering, minds screaming for warmth and respite.  As their bodies creep a bit back into the safe-zone of core temperature, the call is made and the order given - back into the surf!

The lesson here is that Government, in this case US Navy SEAL Instructors, understand just how far they can push before something snaps.  If you do not push hard enough, you will end up with weak links in the Teams.  Push too hard, and the organism fails - sailors die in the surf.

Push just right...you end up with a Navy SEAL.

Look across our society and see if you can find that same pattern being employed by those who would be our Masters.

Taxes: They take enough to ensure that you and your family must work constantly.  We do not have the time or energy to march on Washington.  We are too busy to even pay attention, most of the time.  They do not dare man-up and just admit that they are going to take 70% or more of every dollar you earn, but they get it anyway.

The taxes that come out of your check are only the chunk they are bold enough to take from you, daring you to do anything about it.  They get the rest of it every time you buy a good or service.  Buy a loaf of bread, the Government gets a cut.  Buy a meal at a restaurant, the Government gets a cut.  Put gas in your tank, fix a leaky toilet, install windows in your home, hold a yard sale, and Government gets a cut.

Die, and Government gets a cut of everything you leave behind.

They constantly fiddle with the flame under the pot.  They add a bit more heat (taking more money) when we'll tolerate it, and they turn the heat down a bit when we start to get grumpy.  Remember the Sailors running to and from the surf?

Same same.

Fuel: When I was courting my wife in 2002, gas was $1 a gallon.  A few summers ago it shot to $4.50 in the DC area.  I was driving my dream truck - a black Chevy Dooley 4x4 with the 8100 engine.  Not at $4.50 per gallon!

Americans threw a fit, and prices eased, and have now crept back to just about $3 per gallon.  There was no legitimate market force driving gasoline to $4.50/gallon.  The Instructors were running us to the surf and the fire, determining just how much they could charge for gasoline.  They wanted to find that sweet-spot just before we revolt.

It seems to be about $3/gallon.

TSA: Our Masters want to know everything.  Knowledge is power.  Right now we are in the surf and paying $4.50/gallon as regards the Fourth Amendment.  They are putting their hands on you wife's rack!

They'll back off, but you'd better believe the line marking the New Normal for Fourth Amendment encroachment will be leaps and bounds past where it was just a week before TSA started going knuckle deep.

Americans will settle for the New Normal, and Government will enjoy a net gain in power and knowledge about Americans, who will settle for almost anything, so long as it isn't knuckle-bumping the mons.

Patterns.  Look for them, and you will see them.  Then you can begin to counter.

But you will be swimming upstream, because the majority of Americans won't understand or care.  Most of them agree with the violations, with only shades of gray between them as to just how far is too far, or how much is too much.

Government always advances in power.  That is the pattern.

America is doing to itself what no power on Earth would be able to force upon us.

We are running, full speed and with abandon, into the arms of what History will one day record as the most efficient Police State ever to exist on the planet.

Codrea exposes just one facet of what our Masters have planned for us in his Gun Rights Examiner column here.

Snitches are a tool used very effectively by Government.

Snitches often ply their trade covertly, though the most successful are often right out in public, for everyone to see, wearing camouflage and singing the song you want to hear.

Snitches get paid by Government.  Sometimes it is with cash or by check.  Sometimes it is through favors. 

Look for it, you'll see the payoff, even if you don't want to admit it.

Perhaps the height of success in our lifetimes as regards Citizens snitching on one another was under the legendary Mischa Wolf and his Stasi

Those in America who would be our Masters know the tools and methods of State oppression and subjugation.  They know too that to bring America under control is a generational endeavor.  They have been at it for many generations, and they are near their end move. 

Government serves as a generation-spanning tool in their efforts, for it provides institutional memory.  Today's newest Federal LEO is taught the techniques of running snitches by the retiring class, and they will refine and improve the art, recording it in training manuals, and handing off the methodology to the next generation.  But it is not restricted to snitches.  Every tool of Collectivist encroachment advances in parallel.

Control is not simply a matter of trained seals (Americans) following laws, regulations and taxes...it is also $4.50 gasoline.

The next time you are offered the lesser of evils, for instance: Pat-down or x-ray, take a moment and examine the premise of the offer.

Is there a third option?

There is always a third option...

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.

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.

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

Get your head on straight, Patriot!

Following the counsel of idiots and hollow heroes regarding SHTF circumstances will get you dead...and if you can't tell the difference between serious men and hot-air machines, you're already half way to a mass grave.  Growling on blogs about how you will not yield one more inch, or one more of your gun rights, then letting LEO have your pistol during a traffic stop makes you a pathetic joke, not a Leader worthy of serious consideration. 

Hyperbolic proclamations about what you will do to any Alphabet Agency team making a dynamic entry to your home is hardly helpful to the Patriot cause.

If you draw a line in the sand, defend the damned line!  Do not whine and make excuses later about the better part of valor!  Your poor judgment (drawing the line) and cowardice (choosing not to defend it) colors us all.

Man up and think for yourself, or you are wasting perfectly good air, and feeding those who depend on your intellect and common sense false hope.

"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?


Excerpt:

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!
