  • Watch: “Anti-Fascist” Militia Training Video Shows Leftists Are Preparing For Armed Confrontation

    05/03/2017 9:04:56 PM PDT · by blam · 112 replies
    Following the Berkeley protests last month, where numerous Anti-Fa(scist) activists complained of getting a beatdown after they attempted to intimidate peacefully assembling Trump supporters, we learned that the left-leaning organizations are taking their organization efforts to the next level. Among other things, they have called for more combat training, better equipment, and even guns in an effort to scare those who disagree with their message of forced tolerance, equal rights and inclusion. Today, we get a better look at what that means, with somewhat hilarious results. The Conservative Tribune explains: Poorly-regulated militias, it seems, are good for only one thing:...
  • Iraqi palace of mirrors: Kurds block aid to Christian militia

    The Christian town of Qaraqosh, Iraq, located on the Nineveh Plain, is in ruins. It is far worse than its appearance, which is bad enough. Other than a handful of volunteers to clean up the streets, and the 300 or so members of the Nineveh Protection Unit, or NPU, the town is deserted. The Christian town has enemies other than the ruthless Islamic State, or ISIS, which left it in ruins. Currently the Kurdish militia, the Peshmerga, is blocking aid to the NPU that guards the town, because the NPU is the Assyrian Christian militia. It is the only armed...

    Local armed militia in a small US town forced a council meeting to be cancelled following growing security concerns over their presence. The violent group of right-wing protesters carried guns into a local square to demonstrate against "the presence of Muslims" in the country The meeting, which was expected to lift a ban on new places of worship, was called off amid growing tensions in Newton County, Georgia. Five weeks ago a local Muslim group laid out construction plans for an Islamic cemetery, mosque and school - but it was met with anger from a loud minority of the town.

    The current Standard Form (SF86) required for submitting for a federal background investigation, now requires applicant to disclose any participation with militias. This was never included in any previous edition. Here is the question: Q: Have you EVER participated in militias (not including official state government militias) or paramilitary groups? This is unprecedented. It says it is a revised July 2008 form: but I did one in 2011, and this question wasn't included. This represents the first time an otherwise legal activity, is now under federal scrutiny in the background investigation process.

    Testifying before a judge in a bail hearing, the lead FBI invertigator draws a blank when it comes to facts about the so-called "Hutaree militia": An FBI agent who led the investigation of nine Michigan militia members charged with trying to launch war against the federal government couldn't recall many details of the two-year probe yesterday during questioning by defense lawyers. Even the judge who must decide whether to release the nine until trial was puzzled. "I share the frustrations of the defense team … that she doesn't know anything," U.S. District Judge Victoria Roberts said after agent Leslie Larsen...
  • FBI sees little chance of copycat militia plots(FBI)

    FBI officials see little chance the arrests of nine suspects in an alleged Christian militia plot will spur other anti-government extremists to launch their own violent attacks. Suspected members of a group that called itself Hutaree were allegedly plotting to kill police officers. The suspects were captured over the weekend in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana. The FBI issued a bulletin to police departments saying they have picked up Internet chatter among other militia groups — including some expressing sympathy for the suspects — but few signs of criminal copycats.

    Alaska State Troopers are investigating the actions of a pair of vigilantes alleged to have made forcible citizens arrests of two young fugitives accused in a series of burglaries in the Anchor Point area over the past two months. The fugitives, a boyfriend and girlfriend duo, were served up for troopers, who found them bound with zip ties and disarmed of the weapons they were believed to have stolen during at least nine burglaries perpetrated since December. Items stolen from the cabin of Mark Cocke, who would later be involved in the citizen's arrest on Monday, included a Ruger .44...

    STOCKTON - A retired truck driver and Vietnam War veteran said Monday that he is forming an armed militia - mostly men with rifles and armbands, four to a car - to patrol Stockton this summer, when at least 43 police officers are to be laid off. Alan Pettet, 66, said he has recruited 18 men, most of whom are ex-military. He said the militia will train at a firing range and "activate" if the city lays off any officer, as it intends by July 1. The likelihood of an armed militia materializing is uncertain - there are legal concerns,...

    "... A second task we can take on together is to design and establish a volunteer Civilian Reserve Corps. Such a corps would function much like our military reserve. It would ease the burden on the Armed Forces by allowing us to hire civilians with critical skills to serve on missions abroad when America needs them. And it would give people across America who do not wear the uniform a chance to serve in the defining struggle of our time."

    Somali militia group 'surrounded' Mogadishu is full of weapons and people are reluctant to disarm Somali troops backed by Ethiopian forces are fighting about 600 Islamist militiamen in the south of the country, says an interim government spokesman.

    Somali militia orders Ethiopians out MOGADISHU, Somalia, Dec. 16 (UPI) -- The militia that controls much of Somalia has given Ethiopian troops until Tuesday to withdraw peacefully or face all-out war. But Ethiopia says its troops will not leave unless the Somali government explicitly rescinds its invitation allowing the troops in the country. Somali lawmakers in the nation's capital Mogadishu say parliament did not "invite" the Ethiopian troops. They say instead, some top Somali officials unilaterally invited Ethiopia to deploy ground troops into the country without parliament approval, Somalia's independent Garowe Online news service reports. Meanwhile, the parliament became fractured...

    DOUGLAS - The leader of an Arizona militia group says he is drawing the line when it comes to a planned monthlong operation by a Californian to bring in hundreds of volunteers to Cochise County to secure the border. Casey Nethercott said the Minuteman Project led by Jim Gilchrist has been infiltrated by skinhead, neo-Nazi, white supremacists and if any of them trespass on Arizona Guard property he and his soldiers will react and take them into custody. However, Chris Simcox, one of the co-organizer of the Minuteman Project, said it sounds like Nethercott is missing the media spotlight and...

    Police state: Iran grants sweeping new powers to Basij militia goons Iran has expanded the authority of the widely despised Basij militia to include police, defense and relief operations. The Basij, said to have about 1 million members, has been designated as the shield of the Islamic regime and its principles. Over the past few years, the regime has used the Basij to quell pro-reform student demonstrations and enforce the Islamic dress code in and around Iranian universities. Officials said the new government of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad approved a plan to enhance the role of the Basij Resistance Force. Under...

    The Militia of the Immaculata (MI) is a worldwide evangelization movement founded by St. Maximilian Kolbe in 1917 that encourages total consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary as a means of spiritual renewal for individuals and society.

MIs also immerse themselves in apostolic initiatives throughout society, either individually or in groups, to deepen the knowledge of the Gospel and our Catholic Faith in themselves and in others. Marian consecration is a formal act of self-giving that does not stop...

    Mugabe's boy militia flee after murders By Basildon Peta Southern Africa Correspondent 15 March 2003 Hundreds of President Robert Mugabe's notorious youth militia – nicknamed the "Green Bombers" – are fleeing to South Africa because they say they are tired of "killing for nothing" and are being starved. Fourteen boys and men aged between 15 and 28 have provided testimonies about life in the youth wing of Zanu-PF, Zimbabwe's ruling party, to The Sunday Independent newspaper in South Africa. They say they were taught how to kill people in ways that "would be quick and silent and leave no evidence"....
