North Korean Nuclear Suicide Bombers? Translator Needed

Okay, who here understands Korean? A translation would be very much appreciated to find out what's in the radioactive chest packs. Thanks.

Devil at the Door : A Lights Out Saga Short Film

Looks like the book Lights Out by David Crawford is in the process of being made into a three part movie.

If you haven't read the book yet, do it. You won't be disappointed.

Lone Survivor - Movie Trailer

Well, it looks like Marcus Luttrell's book, Lone Survivor, will be hitting the big screen soon.

Really not liking the fact that Mark Wahlberg, (aka Pokey Poke) is playing the part of Luttrell. If you don't know what I'm talking about, David Cordrea has written extensively about him.

IRS Now Has More Agents Than German Army

The Internal Revenue Service includes an estimated 106,000 agents and employees.

The Treasury Department allocated $11.522 billion to the agency for operations in 2009. Thanks to Obamacare the agency is expected to hire from 11,800 to 16,500 new agents.

That means the IRS will have from 117,800 to 122,500 after Obamacare is implemented.

The IRS has more agents than the German (62,279), Spanish (75,000) and Canadian (68,250) armies.

The Family Research Counsel also points out these shocking facts:

** The IRS has its own SWAT team.

It has its own intelligence unit.
** And it has more agents than the armies of Canada, Spain or Germany have soldiers

Don’t you feel safe now?
 Ah, yes. The Wealth Thieves have their own army. Must be why they need so many guns.

Foreign Troops In Denver Training with National Guard (HazMat Drill)

Troops from Slovenia on the left in downtown Denver
From The Run Down Live:

American National guard is working with foreign military. Colorado is teamed with Slovenia and Jordan. He also revealed a major drill at Pepsi Center next week involving hazmat. The man speaking is the one on the left in the picture on my profile. This absolute TRUTH and PROOF that we have foreign troops working in cooperation with our NATIONAL GUARD!!!! FOREIGN TROOPS ON AMERICAN SOIL!!!
Outside Coors Field, Slovenian troops admit the partnership between National Guard troops and foreign military.
-Kris Custer

A HazMat drill occurred this week at the Pepsi Center with foreign military troops in conjunction with domestic troops?

I wonder if it will be another military night training event like we had in Miami, Chicago, and Los Angeles last year.

Keep your eyes and ears open.


Dear Friends in America…

Some observations and warning on the current state of America from Bart ”Sergei” Norman, a Poland-based firearms instructor and security consultant who also serves as a Polish Army reservist.

Dear Friends in America…

…I think I should bring your attention to a few recent facts that naturally escape the limelight of glory in the mainstream media. Facts of obviously lesser importance than The New Royal Baby, Zimmerman’s trial and Justin Bieber’s new hairdo, or are they really…

The events that we have all seen in the past months have drawn my inquisitive nose over the great pond and into your part of the globe. And I must say, what I see happening is giving me the creeps.

I do see a significant discrepancy between what you people take for granted yet allow to be step by step taken away from you, and what life is really like here in Europe and the rest of the world. It amazes me how easily people in your country let go of the strings of liberty still in your grasp for a promise of the illusive security and prosperity. Well, sorry ladies and gentlemen, security is only as impenetrable as you make it for yourself, and prosperity only as lucrative as you make it grow with hard work. And it is the same everywhere in the world. The only difference is the amount of difficulties imposed by third parties that make achieving security and prosperity tougher.

As for now, you are all pretty much well off compared to some other parts of this planet. Most of you probably never experienced the strife of living under an oppressive dictatorship or an extremist regime, and the rest probably do not even give a damn about this topic whatsoever. Ignorance is the key to any man’s demise and, sorry to say this, most of you have reached master level in ignorance and I-do-not-give-a-damnism. If it concerns other nations, sure, why should anyone be bothered by problems halfway across the globe! However, if those same problems start to arise in your back garden and you still remain ignorant as if nothing was happening, well in that case, you might as well dig your own grave and just lay down inside the hole because you are on a direct route to ending up there in the near future anyway.

< snip >

You think it is not that bad over there where you live? Well what are you doing to make it stay that way? You people have a unique gift that was bestowed upon you by your founding fathers. Once you broke the chains of his majesty’s divine right to rule you, the guys that came after did not serve you the very same cake under a different name. They recognised YOUR divine right of freedom. Recently it is becoming more and more obvious that you have to be reminded that what you still have as a commonly accessible RIGHT, somewhere else it is a PRIVILEGE available to but a select few.

He's right.

If someone half-way across the world can see it happening, why can't the rest of our countrymen?

Too deep in the forest to see the trees?

Too deep into the idiot box?

Panem et circenses.

Keep training. Keep preparing.

Gun Buyback Canceled Because of New Gun Laws

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Organizers have canceled a gun buyback at the request of Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle, who says Colorado's new gun laws would make it nearly impossible to comply.

Pelle says a strict law that went into effect July 1 requires buyers to go to a licensed firearms dealer and undergo a background check.

The computer systems are not portable and could not be used at the sheriff's compound where the buyback was planned next month.

The Boulder Daily Camera reports the group would have to find a licensed firearms dealer to hold the event and then pay the dealer for each transaction, which would be too expensive and too difficult. Together Colorado -- a group that bills itself as a nonpartisan multi-faith organization -- had planned the event.

In an e-mail announcing the cancellation, Sheila Dierks said: "Sheriff Pelle has stood strong for this event, has done tremendous work to make it happen and he is as disappointed as we are."

Event organizers had planned to give gift cards or tickets to sporting events to people who turned in firearms. Students raised nearly $8,000 to purchase the incentives.

The idea was to collect guns and then immediately hand them over to the Sheriff's Office for destruction. Some of the remnants of the destroyed firearms would then be passed along to Boulder-area metalworking artist Jessica Adams to use for a sculpture aimed at creating gun violence awareness.

A fine example of unintended consequences.

The 51st State Initiative Blog

Progress Now Colorado's attempt at mocking the 51st State Initiative for North Colorado.
The 51st State Initiative to create a the new state of Northern Colorado has a blog.

No, it isn't a joke.

Yes, people are serious.

If you're curious or supportive about the effort or just want to learn more, head on over and start reading.

The 51st State Initiative

Colorado has been hijacked by liberals and the good folk are fighting back with recalls, drone hunting permits, magazine swaps, open carry marches, business's leaving, State Sheriffs suing, and so on.

I think there's a good chance that the Red-Blooded Americans of Colorado can take their state back. They're putting up a pretty good fight.

The New Life Saving Inflatable Abdominal Tourniquet

This is pretty cool. The CAT tourniquet is great for limb wounds, but for abdominal wounds, there wasn't much you could do other than pack the wound, apply direct pressure, and hope that advanced medical treatment could be rendered in time.

Now there is an inflatable abdominal tourniquet that has already proven to be a lifesaver.
The invention solves a problem that has long haunted combat medics and emergency room doctors. When a patient suffers a junctional hemorrhage—severe bleeding from the groin, pelvis, shoulder, or base of the neck—he or she often dies because it is impossible to tie a conventional tourniquet tight enough around the torso to cut off blood flow.

Croushorn and co-inventors Richard Schwartz, the chairman of the emergency-medicine department at Georgia Regents University and a former combat medic, and Ted Westmoreland, a former medic with U.S. Army Special Operations, became all too familiar with junctional hemorrhages during their deployments overseas. Enemies would often target the pelvis and upper legs because body armor doesn't always cover that area, (Mosby's Maxim #231: Hips and Heads) and the U.S. Army cites junctional hemorrhage as one of the most common causes of death on the battlefield.

This new tourniquet stops heavy bleeding with a clever, yet incredibly simple, mechanical design: A medic buckles the device around a patient's abdomen, over the belly button, and then tightens it by twisting a windlass. A hand pump inflates a wedge-shaped bladder, which displaces the bowel and compresses the patient’s aorta against his spine, halting all blood flow to the lower body. According to a recent Army report, a device like this tourniquet could have prevented an average of three military deaths every month between October 2001 and April

Selco: Self Defense in Survival Situations

Selco's thoughts on SHTF self-defense based on his personal experience.

Lots of people wrote about George Zimmerman case that followed the shooting of Trayvon Martin.

To sum up story, Zimmerman was local neighborhood watch volunteer and followed Trayvon Martin who he considered suspicious. Then they got into fight and Martin was shot by Zimmerman.

There is much more to this of course but reading about this gave me idea for article today. About what my understanding of self defense is and how it changed throughout my year in war.

If Martin was beating Zimmerman and smashing head into ground then what should he do? Wait until his head opens up?

I think world is going to hell very soon, and most of people are kinda idiots, brainless media blinded puppets.

I cannot see any sense in following big headlines and news about what some "famous reality star" said about shooting and who is right and who is wrong.

When exactly we started to wait for statements from empty celebrity heads like some kinds of messages from Messiah?

Am I supposed to form my opinion based on her or his opinion just because she has public videotape of having sex with someone, or he can rap about throwing money in the air?

We have some wrong idols, and s. gonna hit the fan very bad, and if you look at humankind mostly we are deserving it.

Every lost life is tragedy, especially young life. Being in war I have seen many many people killed, young and old, innocent and guilty.

Some things never gonna change, there is always gonna be violence and stupid people.

Self defense for me was when I did not have any other option left and when only option was to shoot and kill. For example if I could not run away, or hide very good not to be seen. I would use any other option first, last option was to shoot.

Attacking them meant when I shoot first, even if I had other options to use first. In reality if I wanted to confront them I would attack them, if I did not want I would use any other option (go away, hide, or sometimes negotiate) then use force as a last option (self defense).

Real life example was two (drunk and high) guys going from house to house and killing and setting houses on fire, clearly self defense (as I understand it) because there is no sense of talking with them and leaving house was no option too. If you hear or see them murdering others, you are not going to be first person to talk sense into them.

When you shoot and kill the man, later you always think "Did i have to do it? Was there any other option?". But yeah, in the beginning period, I mean when you are driven mostly by fear and adrenalin you tend to shoot too much. Like "shoot first and then ask" stuff.

But man in my neigbourhood put like 20 bullets in his own brother just because his brother wanted to scare him (as a joke) while he was guarding their house. That is joke gone very wrong.

When you are new to survival situation most people do not understand all options they have. After some weeks and months you get familiar with your options and shooting is just one of the options.

Self defense changed troughout my year fighting for survival in two ways. First when people realized that SHTF for real, and there is no law it was like if you are smart and practice "self defense" you would stay home, hidden and shoot at anyone who comes to you. That was self defense.

People on street were practicing something like "fun" with weapon, like shooting and having fun, so nothing like real reasons for attack or self defense. Later when folks realized that it is becoming easy to get killed, and hard to survive, more people tried to stay "put" and move out of way of other folks.
Read the rest here.

Do you have the proper mindset to pull the trigger or plunge that knife?

Better get it now.

USDOJ Holder Sets Up Tip Line To Help Prosecute Zimmerman

Yes, I previously said I wasn't going to talk about the Zimmerman / Trayvon issue after this post.

And I still won't.

This is now about a corrupt DOJ and their attempts to go after an acquitted man on a race-baiting witch hunt.

This from the Orlando Sentinel:
The U.S. Department of Justice on Monday afternoon appealed to civil rights groups and community leaders, nationally and in Sanford, for help investigating whether a federal criminal case might be brought against George Zimmerman for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, one advocate said.

The DOJ has also set up a public email address to take in tips on its civil rights investigation.
They want tips to "build a case" against Zimmerman "for either a civil rights violation or a hate crime" in the justifiable and legal shooting of an armed thug who was inflicting bodily harm upon him.

That email address, which is now in operation, is

I suggest we follow David Codrea's lead and submit 'tips' that are more practical and pertinent to the duties that the DOJ is SUPPOSED to do.

Colorado Town Proposes Ordinance To Allow Drone Hunting Permits

HA! Looks like one Colorado town isn't going to allow further liberties to be infringed upon  without a fight.
The tiny town of Deer Trail, Colo. — barely more than a wide spot on Interstate 70 about 55 miles east of Denver, population 546 — is considering an ordinance that would authorize licensed bounty hunters to shoot down unmanned aircraft violating its “sovereign airspace.”

A six-page petition circulated by a resident says that the threat of surveillance from drones — regardless of who is piloting them — is a threat to “traditional American ideas of Liberty and Freedom” enjoyed by Deer Trail’s “ranchers, farmers, cowboys and Indians, as well as contemporary citizens.”

Therefore, drone incursions are to be seen as acts of war.
The proposal will be considered during the town council's next meeting on August 6th. The fee for a 1 year hunting license will be $25. The proposal goes on to address the bounty for the downed aircraft:
Proposed bounties will be $25 for those turning in the wings or fuselage of downed aircraft and $100 for mostly intact vehicles. To collect the bounty, the wreckage must have “markings, and configuration … consistent with those used by the United States federal government.”

Such “trophies” then become the property of Deer Trail.
Also spelled out in the proposal are the ROE:
Shooters must use shotguns, 12-gauge or smaller, firing lead, steel or depleted uranium ammunition and they can’t fire on aircraft flying higher than 1,000 (a determination made using a range finder or a best guess). No weapons with rifled barrels allowed, and no tracer rounds. 

An “engagement” is limited to three shots at an aircraft every two hours. Being unable to bring down the drone within those guidelines, the petition notes, “demonstrates a lack of proficiency with the weapon.”

Drones can become targets if the bounty hunter feels the aircraft is stalking them, if they maneuver as if they’re following someone, or if they display any weaponry.

But if anyone accidentally shoots down a remote-controlled toy airplane, the proposed ordinance warns, “the owner of the toy remote control aerial vehicle shall be reimbursed for its full cost by the shooter.”

Unless, that is, the toy aircraft was flying over the shooter’s property.
Considering how small Deer Trail is, it is highly unlikely that there will ever be much, if any, drone activity in the area. However, the chances of this ordinance passing are very good.
Because the ordinance doesn’t limit the licenses to only Deer Creek residents, the town could raise money from people in other states who want the novelty of having an official drone-hunting license.
So for a mere $25, you too can have an 'official' drone hunting license and poke your finger in the surveillance eye of the govt.

And if you just happen to get lucky and be the first person to shoot one down, you're going to be an American hero.

AAR: July 4th Westcliffe Colorado Open Carry March

My apologies to George. I received this email just as I was leaving on vacation for some good family camping time in the hills of South Dakota.

Below is his AAR report on this excellent turnout.

July 4th, Westcliffe, Colorado

To the dismay of the few local liberals in our conservative rural county, over 500 armed Patriots showed up at the annual Custer County July 4th Parade to show support for the repeal of the unconstitutional gun laws passed this year in Colorado.

A week before, in a premeditated, organized attack, the liberals on the Chamber of Commerce (who had the permit parade), voted to CANCEL the parade because the local Southern Colorado Patriots Club had decided to use its section of the parade as a 2nd Amendment Rally.

The county was in an uproar. It is the biggest event of the year and our merchants depend on it for a major part of their income. 

The Town of Westcliffe Board, who issued the permit, decided to have an emergency meeting about it. About 150 county residents showed up (the town has only 795 residents total). The libs were outnumbered 10 to 1. The usual lib arguments were heard first: I'm scared, my children will be traumatized, it is political (the July 4th parade!!!), etc, etc.  Then the Patriots spoke up like it was 1774. Enough, is enough. This is OUR county, not yours. The Town Council voted 6 to 0 to have the parade and no gun restrictions! Victory for liberty.

The rest is history. The largest spectator crowd in Westcliffe history. Aproximately 5000 people showed up (normally it is about 500 - 600). 500 Patriots from Wyoming, Texas, Kansas, New Mexico and Arizona made the pilmagrage. Screaming, crying, clapping spectators the whole way. Local merchants were overwhelmed. 

Please note on one of the pictures, left side, man with red shirt, white hat. Crippled with a cane. His deer rifle slung on his shoulder. Walked the entire mile and a half (and back). Spectators were crying and clapping as this great Patriot showed what a true American is all about. God Bless America.

The Southern Colorado Patriots Club section stretched for almost a mile. Also, during the parade, to the liberals dismay, we launched a new conservative, Christian weekly county newspaper, The Sangre de Cristo Sentinel, to drown out the evil voice of the current county liberal rag.

Thank you Patriots for coming. Wait till next year.

We will not stand for tyranny.

A great day for Westcliffe, Colorado and American.

George from Westcliffe
George informs me that other similar parades are in the works in other locales. One as early as August 10th. More info as it becomes available.

How to Avoid Getting Shot and Killed by George Zimmerman

I haven't chimed in on the Zimmerman / Trayvon issue yet.

Why? Because I was over it. It was a justifiable case of self-defense. Nothing more to see here. Move along. But the media kept dragging it out. Obama and Holder kept it on the forefront. Glorified court jesters (celebrities) kept crying out for 'Justice for Trayvon'. Blah. Blah. Blah.

Well I came across this blog today that I completely agree with and it's all I'm going to say on the matter because like I said, I'm over it.
On July 15, 2013, thousands of protestors in Times Square chanted:

“Trayvon did not have to die. We don’t know the reason why.”
To those thousands of protestors, as well as to the millions of other people who share their point of view, I would like to present the following simple, handy dandy, step by step guide on how to avoid getting shot and killed by George Zimmerman. I follow these steps every day, and the results speak for themselves. If you follow these simple and easy steps, then you, too, can avoid getting shot and killed by George Zimmerman.

Step #1: Don’t pin George Zimmerman down on the ground.
Step #2: Don’t break George Zimmerman’s nose.
Step #3: Don’t give George Zimmerman two black eyes.
Step #4: Don’t repeatedly slam George Zimmerman’s head on the pavement.

That’s it. Just four simply, easy steps.

It works for me.

And if you follow these steps, it will work for you too.

Mosby - Square Range Drills for OODA Cycle Acceleration: The PRA 1-5 Drill

Whether you are a police officer, a soldier performing COIN operations in Afghanistan, an armed citizen in every day carry self-defense, protecting your retreat property against armed incursion by cannibalistic San Franciscans, or are an insurgent trying to effectively counter the security forces of a totalitarian regime, you HAVE to discriminate your targets. Killing the neighbor’s kid, because he was in your pasture, sneaking over to talk your daughter into a hayloft visit is a non-starter. Killing the local commander’s 8-year old daughter, because she was next to her daddy, and you missed a shot, will not win friends and influence people amongst the local populace.

One of the drawbacks to the way a lot of guys teach/train for discrimination shooting is that it stays pretty predictable. “Shoot the guy with the guns.” “Shoot the white IPSC targets and not the brown ones.” The problem is, while there can be some discernment built in to this, there’s no ongoing conscious decision-making and thinking going on, as there will be in an actual encounter.

Target discrimination is much more than just “shoot/no shoot,” although it quite often gets dumbed down to that level in shooting courses. It’s also a matter of understanding basic geometry and physics.Think about the rule of “know what is downrange. Know what is between you and your target, to either side of your target, and beyond your target.” A solid hit to the hips is great…unless it over-penetrates his pelvic cavity and punches into a kid’s head six feet behind him…Realistic combat shooting is not a simple binary decision-making process. You have to train to streamline the rest of the OODA cycle in order to speed up your binary matrix aspects.
In an actual fight, there are always going to be changing factors shifting around within the battle space, requiring your OODA Cycle to accelerate if you want to be successful. Just seeing the right target is not enough. You also have to orient to how that target affects your decision-making process, based on the METT-TC conditions. Do you have a clean shot, or do you need to move to change angles, in order to get a clean shot that doesn’t involve punching holes in good guys? Are you capable of looking at multiple targets, and not only deciding which ones are threats, but which one is the most dangerous threat at any given time?
Good information to consider and an even better drill.

Read the rest here.

If practiced and done correctly, you will also be able to quickly and effectively follow Gun Safety Rule #3 - Always Be Sure Of Your Target And What Is Behind It!

Remember, innocent casualties are never acceptable.

Mosby - Going to Guns: A Critical Introduction to the OODA Cycle

I would hazard the guess that most people involved in any level of “tactical” shooting today have at least heard of the term “OODA loop.” Whether they are liberty-minded, Constitutional Patriots, Jack-booted Stasi wannabes, or power-lifting, door-kicking, military special operations gunslingers, you can’t spend much time studying gunfighting and not come across the term. If you are completely unfamiliar with the term, I can confidently say, you are NOT ready to be in a fight.

Unfortunately, as I discuss the OODA Cycle with people, in classes or outside of them, I discover that, regardless of how much they talk about “interrupting his OODA loop,” or “getting inside the OODA loop,” and more, too many people legitimately do not understand what it actually means, nor how to train it to improve their response times to stimuli

If you’ve learned and practiced your decision-making matrices, and know HOW to think critically under stress, you can accomplish this without having to shoot anyone, unless it’s on your own terms. If the other dude gets inside of your decision-making cycle though, and you’re stuck playing catch up, you’re going to find yourself crammed into a position you don’t want to be in, and fighting your way out, against undesirable odds….perhaps even unbeatable odds.

Read the rest of Mosby's discussion here.

And if you find yourself in one of his classes, ask him to share the story about the gorilla suit when he starts discussing the OODA loop.

Improvised Homemade Shotgun From Stapler

This guy puts new meaning to the term 'Staple Gun'.

Did he get the idea from similar ones in Bahrain or did he come up with it on his own?

For the sole purpose of liberating real guns from your oppressors.

Now don't go making one yourselves. Wouldn't want to be breaking any laws now, would we?

Commierado Mag Swap Successful On Day Law Takes Effect

Well, WyoThreeper and myself arrived at the State Capitol today to take part in some good ol' fashion civil disobedience. The news crews were already there interviewing people. A Noon, the organizer of the event, Ryan Teluja, started speaking, making his point on why we were doing what we were about to do.

He 'broke the law' first by accepting a 9mm pistol mag that held more than 15 rounds with another gentleman. Then in return, he gave the same gentleman an AR15 magazine for his rifle.

Then he offered a magazine for sale, and someone offered him $10 for it. Sold!

The question was posed if anyone had any magazines they wanted to exchange. WyoThreeper handed him about a dozen 30 round magazines and I handed him my three 20-round mags, in front of the news cameras.

Media interviewing the event organizer
Then we were asked to form a circle, and the media was crowding themselves in the middle to get the mass civil disobedience that was about to happen on video.

Everyone was asked to pull out their magazines and start passing them the the left. With each pass of a magazine, we were breaking the law. We passed magazines for about a minute and when told to stop, we were informed that magazines we had in our hands now belonged to us. We broke the law about 15 times within a minute. State Troopers and city cops were visible but stayed quite a distance away.

No arrests were made. No 'high-capacity' mags injured anybody. And nobody was victimized as a result of our civil disobedience, except for law abiding citizens by the passage of this unenforceable and asinine law.

Resistor and WyoThreeper relieved they didn't get new matching bracelets.

We'll see how this all plays out. The lawsuit to overturn this law is being headed by 55 of the 64 Colorado State Sheriffs.

In addition there is a drive to put an "Ammo Amendment" on the 2014 ballot.

The fight's not over yet.
