Militia's
vanity | 01/06/2013 | chuckles

Posted on 01/06/2013 3:00:45 PM PST by chuckles

Has anybody spoken about starting to form some sort of organizations for the SHTF day on gun control? I know there are some already out there called preppers, but I find most of them a little off. I would gladly follow someone like Allen West, but I'm not to keen about following some produce manager down at WalMart. We need to start vetting our local ex military, Oath Keepers, or cops so we don't end up in total chaos on day one.

How many think it may wake the pols up that we are serious or it may piss them off even more? I remember Waco and Janet Reno using militia's as a whipping boy. OTOH, we might put the fear of God in them if a wide movement started. A good start might be some sort of Tea Party connection to get members quickly. Sorta like putting out a trial balloon. If the movement flops, at least we would know we are on our own. I just don't want to wait till the last minute. It's too late then.

It would be a good idea to know who our friends are and who the enemy is before the firestorm. Also, plans to block off the city you live in would help with food distribution and other strategic plans.

No apostrophe needed. To form the plural - just add s. i.e. militias.

The militia movement, and most likely the Patriot movement, is thoroughly infiltrated by the government. They know who’s who, they got ‘em on a list, and they’ll take ‘em out with a Hellfire missile or a Barret .50 shot from half a mile away when they’re going to store to pick up some bacon and Cheez Wiz.

Hell, I’d bet you a militia movement meeting is a bunch of FBI agents standing around trying to figure out who the real militia member is, and who’s the other FBI agent.

It has to start off with you and your neighbors. Under no circumstance should it be officially organized else it may violate the Hatch Act. If you live in Lancaster County Pennsylvania, you can join up with the Marrieta Militia.

So you think Freepers aren't on a watch list?

So you think they don't have your yellow form for your AR15 from 1997?

If the SHTF, they will already have a list when they come to your town. You have to start somewhere.

Its a fair bet almost every single militia has either FBI agents inside, drones outside and a constant surveillance of who logs on to their web sites, on their property or associations.

Avoid any militia save your own.

Do not follow the Judas goats.

I could say some may be totally free and are well positioned to join.

But I for one prefer to the man that can disappear in a crowd of two.

The strategy will be to pick us off one at a time.

Would submit that they have the re-education camps in the planning for those who object, as well as plenty of body bags in inventory for Homeland Security for those who fight back.

I hope we are not like Germany in 1935 right now, but O has nasty ambitions for us thanks to Hitler, Alinsky, Stalin, etc.

If you try to start a militia, I can guarantee you that at least 2 of the members will be government agents.

Sorry dude, spelling errors lead to miscommunication. Miscommunication leads to confusion. And on the battle field, that can be fatal.

The correct use of language is as important as any weapon you field.

“Whatever” doesn’t work AT ALL. BureaKaRatz have an expression: “close enough for government work.” And it explains why Ratz eff things up beyond all recognition.

Spelling IS important.

...."Join this militia".... Already belong.( very concise piece,BTW) Also, one with children might consider homeschooling their children if they have the ability. What we've lost is love of country and fear of God from decades of public school secularism.

I belong to this "miitia" along with my wife and daughter, but we are outnumbered 100 to one. We are losing,(IMHO, we have already lost) our country. Time for political action is fading and the time for real action is very near. I don't know where that invisible line is, but one has to know it is closing in quickly. I know many friends and family that will not be pleasant when the door is kicked in and their guns are removed.

I guess you'd know, having high-tailed it out of the country to 'safe' ground.

You're not standing here with your ass on the line like the rest of us, so your opinion is worth approximately zero. Especially given the fact that you appear to be trying to frighten people away from organizing.

There is only one militia per state in these United States of America. The organizational breakdown then is typically by county, and therein by town.

For many years in our history, “the town militia” would drill on some weekend of a month, and thus demonstrate as well remain refreshed in being well-trained to Arms.

A militia unit may muster for drill and training, but it has no power to exercise martial power, unless authorized by the town’s duly-elected legislative body (typically a town council), or at the county level (the county’s duly-elected legislative body, whatever is its legal name), or at the state - the state legislature.

*Only* a duly-elected legislative body has the power within a state, to authorize the exercise of martial power.

This does not prevent you from forming a gun association, gun club, and/or gun organization, within which you may drill and train and even “play at” soldiering ... but again, such an association has no authority to exercise martial power.

If you are dedicated to upholding liberty, and you seek to reinforce the ability of the people of your state, to resist government tyranny, or there is a matter of urgency regarding the common defense of your town, or of your county, or of your state, you certainly, can petition one of the aforementioned government jurisdictions, or the sheriff, to Call for The Muster.

Now, if you do that, and the Call for The Muster goes out, then you are have taken on a military obligation to be present and perform military service.

There is a little latitude in the command structure of the militia. If your jurisdiction allows it, you may elect your own officers. They would fall under the chain of command throughout the entire militia of your state ... as would *you.* Yet, by now, it is more than likely that the election of officers is set by your state legislature via statutes in your state or orders issued by the legislature.

In a nutshell, you are signing up for military service for the duration of the muster. You may be required to bring, or not bring, your *military grade* weapons. You could be *ordered* to store your *military grade* weapons in the town armory, in the county armory, and/or in the state armory.

As a member of the militia, you are subject to being well-regulated.

At any time, the state legislature can pass orders and overrule whatever commands have been issued by your town or county.

Your state legislature has the power to order you to comply and enforce that.

Personally, I think that town level and county level mustering for the purpose of drill, inspection, and training, are over-due; I believe that we need to demonstrate the proper and safe use, maintenance, and storage of particularly *military grade* weapons. So that young people see, ‘this is how you do it and why’ versus ‘that is *not* how’ - they need to see the importance of these traditions that *respect law and order* as General Washington and our Founding Fathers also expected.

Do it right. Do it like the war’s already started, because they have already declared us the enemy, and they’re watching and listening and formulating contingency plans.

LOL,

We could have a whole discussion on this one! Is it punctuation, or just poor spelling?

I’ll step away from the keyboard now.

With any kind of thought, the best collusion for this sort of thing, is to do the same tactic that obama is using.

What is that?

The informal gathering of neighbors! It worked for Tupperware. It worked for Avon. It worked during the American Revolution. Why not now?

The good ol’ American ‘coffee klatche’!

The free exchange of ideas between free men, unfettered by governments of any kind, is a display of Freedom.

I’d say that a neighborhood watch is the best place to start. Actually, that’s probably the best place to finish too. After that, if you want to be part of a bigger militia, my vote is with one of these groups:

http://www.marines.mil/
http://www.navy.mil/
http://www.army.mil/
http://www.af.mil/

Or you can compromise with a state militia.

...."Dude google the official militia in your state"....

I agree that the FBI probably started it. Kinda like leaving a Corvette on the side of the road with the hood up. Takes about 17 minutes on average for someone to stop and take a look. They put taxidermy deer in fields also. Advertize the local militia and get a few dudes with tats and no teeth. We got several bites advertizing a van full of C4 in local Mosques.

That's sorta why I brought it up. I think it's pretty obvious what's coming. If it's not needed, even better. Buchanan brought it up today on the tube. The libs suggested taking guns, not regulation. I certainly don't want any of this, but if it comes, we won't be able to hide very long, IMHO.( I know there are retired Seals and such that would disagree, but I'm talking about the average weekend shooter).

I thought it might be advantageous to get as an example, someone on the order of Allen West,( he's not busy at the moment), as a leader. There are patriots back from the ME in every community and have experience in tactics and insurgency techniques. I don't think watching Red dawn 12 times will do the trick.
