    At the tiny Talisheek Grocery in rural northeastern St. Tammany Parish, James R. Moore Jr. was a regular, coming in twice a day to buy as many as eight 12- to 16-ounce Red Bulls for his own consumption. Many suspected he also had a drug problem, according to store owner Tracy Moore, who said she is not related to Moore but has known him since childhood. Still, she and a friend said they were shocked to learn that Moore, 46, had been arrested by an FBI-led SWAT team and accused of being major methamphetamine dealer and militia leader with access...

    Casualties sustained during the terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, could have been much higher if it was not for the work of a mysterious CIA officer, according to an official report from the House Select Committee on Benghazi. The report, released Tuesday, noted that U.S. military support did not arrive to aid the small contingent of U.S. personnel defending the consulate during the attack. Instead, it was a militia made up of former Gaddafi loyalists known as Libyan Military Intelligence (LMI) that would come to the rescue of the U.S. officials several hours...

In a conversation on his Gun Owners News Hour, Larry Pratt, executive director emeritus of Gun Owners of America, interviewed Robert Knight, a fellow at the conservative American Civil Rights Union, who said a Democrat taking the White House and replacing the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia would pose great peril to gun rights.

Law enforcement officials call them dangerous, delusional and sometimes violent, and say that their numbers are growing amid a wave of anger at the government that has been gaining strength since 2008, a surge that coincided with the election of the first black U.S. president and a crippling economic recession.

At the time, Ritzheimer called it a "freedom of speech" rally to "push out the truth about Islam," and encouraged participants to "utilize their Second Amendment rights" while at the gathering. When local government and civil rights groups overwhelmingly denounced the rally, Ritzheimer declared "I can't let my kids grow up in...

    Ammon Bundy has been arrested and his brother Ryan was wounded in a shoot-out with FBI officers that left one of their militiamen dead, reports claim. It is the climax of a tense stand-off between federal agents and the activists more than three weeks after they took over a government building in Burns, Oregon, to protest two ranchers being jailed. They were driving to a community meeting with eight other activists on Tuesday afternoon when they were stopped by traffic cops, according KATU. Within minutes, shots were fired, wounding Ryan Bundy and killing an unidentified militiaman. It is not clear

This is exactly what an armed white militia did when they took over the headquarters at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge headquarters in Burns, Oregon. Known in some circles as #YallQaeda, who are waging #YeHawd, they reportedly took the action to protest the government control of land in the West and the punishment of two local ranchers who refused to sell their land. Specifically, Dwight and Steven Hammond, father and son, were convicted of arson on federal land. A...

    Don’t confuse this as a defense of the Bundy family or their team of armed militia members who have occupied an abandoned building located on a federal wildlife preserve in Oregon. Any rational-thinking American should be horrified at the amount of land the federal government has confiscated, especially in the American West, but once you use or threaten violence to further a cause, you have lost me. Their cause is just. Their methods are appalling and un-American. Also un-American is Jonathan Chait of New York Magazine openly hoping these militia men end up dead.

Furthermore, the colonists had virtually no history of cooperating with one another, even in the face of danger. In addition, many in the cabinet were swayed by disparaging assessments of American soldiers leveled by British officers in earlier wars.

In the obvious interest of knowing the quantity and quality of arms available to the militia's purposes, all members should be required to inventory all of their personal arms. Failure to do so should also warrant significant jail time.

    In a July 23 interview published in the New York Observer, actor Richard Dreyfuss said he would like to rewrite the 2nd Amendment to make it clear it applies to the militia rather than individual rights.

    The New York Times ^ | 16 June 2016 | David Schanzer and Charles Kurzman
    This month, the headlines were about a Muslim man in Boston who was accused of threatening police officers with a knife. Last month, two Muslims attacked an anti-Islamic conference in Garland, Tex. The month before, a Muslim man was charged with plotting to drive a truck bomb onto a military installation in Kansas. If you keep up with the news, you know that a small but steady stream of American Muslims, radicalized by overseas extremists, are engaging in violence here in the United States.But headlines can mislead. The main terrorist threat in the United States is not from violent Muslim...

    TALKEETNA David Luntz grilled steaks Friday evening as the summer sun lit up a broad meadow fringed with canvas tents. A few people sitting in camp chairs sipped gin and tonics, getting to know each other before the weekend got started. Rick Ford and Jon Droska walked up with unloaded hand-built machine guns. Ford, in head-to-toe camouflage, shouldered an AK-47. Droska, a bearded, burly U.S. Navy veteran who now conducts emergency medical instruction, carried an AR-15. Around his legs rippled a charcoal-gray Elkommando kilt made by Mountain Hardware. Welcome to the fourth annual Prepper, Survivalist and Militia Rendezvous.The gathering...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)VAN ZANDT COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Van Zandt County has been inundated with the Texas State Guard conducting rescue operations, but it was only a drill. Officials say they are simulating search and rescue missions to prepare for hurricane season. They use Boy Scouts to play victims of a natural disaster. Somewhere in the woods of Van Zandt County, Boy Scouts playing tornado victims await aid. Back in Canton, the Texas State Guard has taken over the Van Zandt County Sheriff's Department briefing room. Lt. Colonel Wendell Sadler says all that military is under the county emergency operations coordinator's control...

    Republican presidential candidates gathered last month at the Oklahoma City Cox Conference Center, just a few blocks from the site of what was the Alfred R. Murrah Federal Building. Two decades ago, anti-government militia sympathizer Timothy McVeigh blew it up in what he called an act of war against the U.S. government. It was the worst crime of domestically bred terrorism in American history. McVeigh was executed in 2001, but since then, some of his militia ideals have gone mainstream and even been introduced as laws in many states, including Oklahoma. Legislators in dozens of states have submitted proposals to...

    The thing that always irks me about their "water the tree of liberty" types is their sheer stupidity. Seriously, you think you and your buddies are going to play Red Dawn against the full might of the U.S. government? Where do you suppose all that defense budget money went, folks? And now we have Ted Cruz, egging them on. Dear sweet Jesus, this man has no conscience. Via Talking Points Memo: WASHINGTON It's a given that every Republican presidential candidate will run for president as a strong supporter of gun rights. But Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is arguing that...

    New Zealand is frequently mentioned as an emigration destination by American freedomistas* fearful of being trapped between our burgeoning federal police state, and the intertwining forces of social disintegration. Locations from the Bahamas to Patagonia are named, but I hear New Zealand in everybodys top three. And in the present era, New Zealand does indeed have many desirable qualities. But what will keep New Zealand both safe and free when global conditions turn Macro Mad Max, or World War Three breaks out? Certainly not its own military forces, which independent of outside help, could not repel an invasion from Liechtenstein....

    There have not yet been any arrests, or description of suspects, in this weeks shootings of two Ferguson, Missouri police officers, but one black activist says he has a hunch who is responsible. Martin Davis, an author and activist, appeared on Tim Constantines D.C.-based radio show Thursday and said he suspects the shooter was part of some type of white militia trying to cause chaos. What Im thinking is it was either somebody who was some type of great sharpshooter, some type of militia, some type of, you know, just person who wanted to see chaos that night, Davis said...

    Mandatory steps in securing our nation and our homes and neighborhoods from Islamic Terrorist attacks: 1) Quit pouring money down the federal drain to use in setting up unconstitutional restrictions on the people (shutter the DHS). 2) Enforce the immigration laws. Secure the borders! 3) Quit trying to disarm the people. Abolish all so-called "gun-free" zones which are in reality killing fields by invitation. 4) We the people need to enforce our second amendment rights: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not...
