Found this message this morning at Sipsey site. It was a source of many good war youtubes back in the day, and had some great articles...
"I'm spiking the guns here on Sipsey Street Irregulars A couple of days ago, I received some news that ended up shaking me to my very core. After a great deal of consideration, I have decided to close the doors of the Sipsey Street Irregulars. Effective immediately, this blog not be updated or monitored. I know this quite sudden, but I know you guys will keep on going just fine without it.
Freedom is not like a game of cards where you can pick up and walk away when you are done playing. But as it stands now, I do not know if I have any future high profile plans within the liberty movement. Time will tell. There is great potential here. Everyone sees it, which is why it attracts so many people. When you remove failure as an option, your way becomes much clearer. The movement simply cannot afford to fail. Doing so will put this country in a darkness that may take generations to come out from. You can kill the man, but you cannot kill the idea. The idea of the 3% of determined and armed men and women was universal because the idea of "liberty for all" is universal. Mike reminded everyone that a gun in your hand is a preferable option to a life on your knees. Take that lesson, and the many others on this blog and use them.
Goody bye and the best luck to you. Keep it legal. Keep it local. Support small patriot/veteran run businesses when you can. Try to have fun once in a while. And if the government is going to make of you a criminal, be the best one you can be.
Seems like there’s more of a story here. Wonder what’s not being said.
That is my question, as well.
What...the...HELL...kind of ‘news’ did he get?!
Reading further down the blog, it appears he had some unpleasant goings on with the Georgia III% security force crew...
Without Sipsey Street Irregulars hussein would have got away with F&F.
Oh wait, he did get away with it but it was becauseof boner and mcconnell.
SSI let us know about when the msm buried it.
I wonder if Matt’s mom is sick?
Hard to believe he got scared into shutting down unless it was something big. His dad got death threats on a regular basis.
Seems to me, when you have an audience, when the gummint comes for you is exactly when you start yelling RAPE.
The site is still up,which is good.
Lots of great articles,
“Aunt Jenny’s Soap Dish”.
“Hundred Heads Insurance”
No activity in several weeks.
I found this when trying to discover if Mike Vanderboegh was still alive:
Vanderboegh Advises Friends to Embrace True Meaning of the Three Percent
June 7, 2016 by David Codrea
“We started out with a health update, a day-to-day struggle for a man whose doctor gave him six months back in January and four weeks in April. Importantly, Mikes clarity of thought and strength of spirit have remained intact throughout his ordeal.”
Not sure if Mike is still alive. Mike & Dave did great work together.
??? Thanks for posting.
And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? After all, you knew ahead of time that those bluecaps were out at night for no good purpose. And you could be sure ahead of time that youd be cracking the skull of a cutthroat.

Mike Vanderboegh, husband, father of three, and founder of the III% movement passed peacefully in his beloved Alabama home today.
That my be the cause.
Mike has died
Thanks for that info.
Yes, they were very close and I am sure it is hard for Dave to continue after the loss. He will move past it eventually.
They both have done great service to the cause of freedom. Speaking truth to lies.
Mike wrote some powerful stuff. His speaking delivery at the Bundy mess was incredible.
Mike passed away ,,,
May he rest in peace and become an inspiration to others.
