    The Lull Before the Civil Unrest Storm Politics / Social IssuesNov 07, 2012 - 03:49 AM By: Jack D Douglas Vast social revolutions and wars are often preceded by periods of giving up on reforms, despairing withdrawal from public life by the best and brightest,(Going Galt) and even peacefulness which seems to have become the normal condition in spite of deep conflicts and growing crises beneath the surfaces of public life. Often, earlier periods of intense conflicts and crises have been overcome and resolved, so it comes to look like that is the normal in life. This lulls most people...

    Turn Them Over: Feinstein Moves To Ban ALL Assault Rifles, High Capacity Magazines, and Pistol Grips Mac Slavo November 7th, 2012 The agenda no longer needs to be hidden from public view. With President Obama winning another term and democrats taking control of the Senate, the move to fundamentally change America from within has begun – with a vengeance. We’re all aware of the restrictive gun laws in the State of California which require low capacity magazines for handguns, fixed magazines for “assault” rifles, and a whole lot of running around just to be granted the right to carry a...
  • Talk about secession all you like, but there isn't going to be a Civil War.

    I'm seeing a lot of comments today along the lines of, " The red states should consider secession", and "Civil War 2 is coming". To those saying such things: I can only hope that you're self-aware enough to realize that you're simply venting. There isn't the slightest chance that the US is going to break up in the next 4 years because of the re-election of Obama. On the off-chance I'm wrong, please contact me in advance of your attack on Fort Sumter.

    I was inspecting an industrial company my group is thinking about using to supply oil rig parts. It's located in a bad neighborhood of a major, major city. As an event, we went to shoot some sporting clays and get some rifle practice in (not at the location linked, but in the same vein). Well, the ranges were filled with Korean groceries getting the cobwebs off, making sure everything works, and buying lots of 10 round magazines (largest they can get). Apparently they've been at Home Depot buying plywood, too, as their trucks were full up. I view this as...

    ALTA LOMA (CBS) A case of campaign vandalism is under investigation Friday in Alta Loma. Someone keyed the word Obama into two cars and slashed seats in another outside a residence that had Mitt Romney campaign signs. CBS2 and KCAL9 reporter Rob Schmitt spoke to Ken Slown, owner of one of the keyed vehicles. Slown actually supports President Obama! He explained to Schmitt that he and his wife both currently unemployed are staying with her parents and its her parents who support Romney. I dont know if they were trying to get a point across, to vote...

    Trapping Feral Pigs and Other Parables of Modern Life by Matt Bracken Professional trappers don't catch fast-breeding and destructive feral pigs using hunting dogs and guns, or in little traps one or two at a time. The wily pigs quickly learn to evade humans after such fleeting contacts. So how do the pros trap entire feral pig herds, eliminating them all, from granddads to piglets, in one go? They feed them, most generously. They kill them with kindness. First, in a clearing in the woods, the trappers build an enclosure about twenty feet on a side and four feet high,...

    Not only is the U.S. economy in shambles, violent crime is at an all-time high and new federal statistics show that 2011 saw the biggest increase in criminal activity in nearly two decades with a large boost in the rate of violent victimizations for whites. The rate of violent crime increased by a whopping 17% last year, according to the Department of Justices (DOJ) Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), marking the biggest jump since 1993. Property crimes also went up 11% last year. That means that in 2011 there were nearly 6 million violent victimizations and more than 17 million...

    American Thinker ^ | October 23, 2012 | Rick Moran
    I'd say it will depend on how close it is. If Romney wins 4 or 5 states by less than 1% - a real nightmare of a possibility - my guess is there is a possibility of rioting. Both sides could see fraud and vote stealing if the election goes against them. In fact, it is almost a guarantee unless one candidate or the other pulls away decisively in the final days. There is no organized group of conservatives wedded to violence who would start a riot, but scattered incidents of mayhem would be possible. But for the moment, all...

    As precursors to my analysis, take note of the following inconsistencies and contradictions. First, Dr. Steve Metz, Professor at the U.S. Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, in response to Sharia is coming, left this comment: Should we worry about the creeping influence of the Boy Scout laws? More people follow that in the United States than sharia. Note well. Steve is comparing Boy Scout law with Sharia law. This Boy Scout law compared to this sharia law. On the other hand, because of political correctness, in the Spring of this year, US Army Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Dooley was...

    According To This Army Document, Tea Partiers And Twitter Users Are Potential Terrorists Geoffrey IngersollOctober 3, 2012 Words like 'terrorist' can always be turned around depending on who is the "authority." In the case of documents acquired by Spencer Ackerman of Wired's Danger Room, the U.S. Army takes a very liberal approach to it's definition of possible insider threats. As Ackerman said about the Army's Asymmetric Warfare Group's "Threat Indicator Card": [The document's] indicators of radicalization are vague enough to include both benign behaviors that lots of people safely exhibit and, on the other end of the spectrum, signs that...

    America is on the verge of fragmentation and civil conflict because its citizens have lost control of their government and lost faith in its political institutions. Nineteenth century political satirist Ambrose Bierce once described Washington D.C. as a strife of interests masquerading as a contest of principles and the conduct of public affairs for private advantage. Indeed. Not much has changed one hundred years on. The August 27, 2012 Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just eight percent (8%) of likely voters think that the US Congress is doing a good job. Most Americans agree that the Democrat and...

    St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 28 September, 2011 | Kurt Hofmann
    A professor at the United States Military Academy (generally referred to simply as West Point) has recently published an article about "far right violence," naming "anti-federalists" as one of the "three trends of far right violence in the United States." Professor Perliger explains that the "anti-federalist trend" to which he refers is "usually identified in the literature as the 'militia' or 'patriot' movement." In other words, he is teaching our military cadets that anti-federalists--the ideological descendants of George Mason, Patrick Henry and other "extremists"--along with militias (that which the Bill of Rights identifies as being "necessary to the security of...

But in the midst of all of this political wrangling, the Obama administrations war on gun owners in the name of the war on crime, the war on drugs, the war on gun trafficking to Mexico and what used to be called the war on terror rages on.

    The Perfect Day and our terrorist opponents possible plans for future attacks I have been told (by those conducting interviews with captured enemy combatants) that when we ask them What is coming next? they sometimes refer to the Perfect Day. You cannot understand what they are talking about if you do not understand the historical reference. The Sepoy Mutiny in India, in 1857, is an example of a Perfect Day. This was a spontaneous uprising by Muslims (and Hindus), with everyone giving the British their best shot. Nannies killed the kids, cooks poisoned the food, and shop owners murdered the...

    n the morning hours of August 5, 2012, the Sikh temple at Oak Creek, Wisconsin, was crowded with children and mothers engaged in preparations for the Langar, a traditional Sikh communal meal scheduled to be held later that day. At around 10:00 AM, Wade Michael Page, a 40-year-old from nearby Cudahy, Wisconsin, arrived in the temple parking lot and started firing at the temples inhabitants using a pistol purchased several days earlier. He then entered the temple and continued his killing spree until he was gunned down by police forces that arrived to the site. At that point, he had...

To the list of recent unsettling developments at DHS and other federal agencies -such as FEMA camp expansions, massive DHS ammo buys, a creepy new biometric surveillance system just being rolled-out by the FBI, and drones buzzing our backyards with cameras- we can now add the appearance across the country of not just heavily-armored military grade Humvees, but 'GLS' armored personnel carriers (APC's) such as in the picture above- 2500 of them to be...

    American Thinker ^ | September 19, 2012 | Lee DeCovnick
    The Department of Homeland Security has purchased 1.4 billion rounds of ammunition- that is not a typo -- during the last six months. This includes 450 million rounds of .40 hollow point, 200 million rounds of .223 rifle ammunition, and 176,000 rounds of .308 168-grain hollow point boat tail (HPBT) that is used almost exclusively as ammo for sniper rifles. From beforeitsnews.com we read: Why is everyone all up in arms about the recent purchase by Homeland security of 1.4 Billion rounds of ammunition? Our undeclared Foreign War in Iraq Consumes about 70,000,000 (70 Million) Rounds of Ammunition Each Year,...

    Surprise! The DHS Immigration and Customs Enforcement have requested more ammunition. However, it is the type of ammunition and not necessarily the quantity that is troubling. First on the agenda is the .223 rifle ammunition. Just a measly 40 million rounds in the first year, and another 160 million rounds in the following four years. 200,00 million rounds in total. You know, just enough to make you cringe thinking that some government office that is not military has more ammunition than you do. The .223 caliber round is a decent hunting round, but that is not the rounds to be...
