Patriotic and resolute until the very end, Sipsey Street Irregulars' Mike Vanderboegh died on Wednesday, August 10, 2016 at the age of 64.
He wrote this back in January:
I beat the odds of my first cancer diagnosis for five years through the grace of God, who evidently wasn't done with me yet. In those five years, we broke the Fast and Furious scandal story ... and generally became a thorn in the side of the empire[.]
In December 2010, the Obama-controlled media complex desperately wanted to ignore an illegal government-sponsored gun-walking operation known as Fast and Furious.
And it would have, if not for a stubborn blogger/patriot/gun rights activist named Mike Vanderboegh.
The fearless defender of a citizen's right to bear arms latched on to a story coming from ATF street agents at CleanupATF. org.
Accusing an ATF official in Phoenix of purposely approving more than 500 untraceable AR-15-type rifles to be "walked" into Mexico, the agents asked if anyone out there could confirm a rumor that one of the rifles was linked to the death of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.

Rest in Peace, Mike.
You inspired many and set the Standard.
You ol’ Smuggler.
I’m sure God needs you and other good people for his army against what is coming
Hopefully some of us won’t drop the ball.
May the angels sing him home
He will be missed.
One of the good guys.
Rest in peace Mike. Now we got a voice in heaven above. Thank you for your tireless work.
I am proud to have had Mike as a friend. I already miss him and his profound, tireless efforts to educate and resist the tyranny rising all around us.
He deserves tremendous credit for his efforts, but Mike only saw it as undoing damage that he had done when he was a communist. Mike and I were only born a year apart. A great man, a scholar, a patriot.
I just revisited “Aunt Jenny’s Soap Dish”
I believe Mike gave Harry Reid a”Soap Dish” from
the Bundy Ranch.
