Idaho - Light Foot Militia

Statement of Ethics -

It is the duty of the citizen’s Militia to protect and defend the unalienable Rights of all members of the community. Under no circumstances will the Militia tolerate those who advocate acts of criminal violence, terrorism or a change away from our republican form of government; nor will it support any specific political party or candidate, nor espouse any particular religious denomination or doctrine. All members must understand the duties and obligations of both citizens and government under the United States and their State's Constitution.

TWIN FALLS • An Idaho militia is searching for recruits in Twin Falls, asking for help to create a unit to defend the Idaho and U.S. Constitutions from “foreign and domestic enemies.”


The Idaho Light Foot Militia sent an email blast to 36 potential Twin Falls members Wednesday. As of Thursday, however, no one had responded, said Craig Campbell, a member of Ada County’s Light Foot Militia.


“There’s nobody in Twin Falls right now,” he said, declining to comment further.



The militia is most active in north Idaho. It has 11 active units throughout the state and 13 “interested” units, according to a map attached to the email sent to potential members.


“In time of peace, we train and assist our community in any way that may better us all. One of our primary goals is to work and train to be an asset and not an issue for the Sheriff’s Office,” its mission statement reads.


The Light Foot Militia requires members to be at least 16, a legal citizen, participate in training and attend monthly meetings. It also urges members to acquire at least 2,000 rounds of ammunition, six magazines per rifle, a cleaning kit and spare parts.


The militia also demands that members obey the laws of war and cites zero tolerance for racism and criminal violence. Women are allowed to join but banned from the “combat units.” They must be trained in firearms and basic combat skills, though.


During the 1990s, militias started forming after several controversial standoffs resulted in multiple deaths.


Most notably, the 1993 raid of a religious compound in Waco, Texas, led to a 51-day siege and ended with more than 80 deaths of the leader’s followers and four federal agents. In 1992, in northern Idaho, a federal dispute with Randy Weaver and Kevin Harris ended with the deaths of Weaver’s wife and son and one government agent.


Twin Falls County Sheriff Tom Carter said he hasn’t been contacted by any militia members but supports any group wanting to protect constitutional rights as long as they stay within the confines of the law.



“I certainly have no problem with anyone who wants to uphold the constitution,” Carter said.


He said the only other militia in Twin Falls County he could remember was in Filer in the 1990s. He said the group is likely no longer active.


When militias start up, they usually contact the sheriff first, Carter said, because they believe the sheriff is the true authority, not the federal government.


Idaho law classifies the militia into three categories: the National Guard, organized militia and unorganized militia. The Light Foot Militia has no authority in Idaho but could become organized if requested by the governor.

I understand the need for information. But into todays fractured nation lies a division which words on pages cant repair. even the internet once used by the Militias of the past have been circumvented by past administrations with agents of destruction. Only the Patriot Cells of Americ have withstood these times. When the time comes for men to be heard and for actions to be taken you will find communication through ham Radio 10 meter band no cell phones no record of patriots conversations. This is the new Militias of patriots within a structure emulating the past in most instances because of intelligence which we use to spread intel and collaborate with Military Intelligence. Who are we? i would say we are those who are ex-veterans,  all ranks and purposes with strengths of silence and humbleness as well as a purpose. Want to join form up into 7 to 12 person groups be apart of civilian needs aspire to tactical and logistical abilities to help the over 1,000,000 cells that dot this nation. Communicate through the 1-0 meter to 20 meter range there are people waiting to hear from you. I Am a Constitutionalist my job is to keep the Constitution as it is not as you would like it to be or your enemies wish to end it.

"Life Is a Gift from God.
We hold from God the gift which includes all others. This gift is life , physical, intellectual, and moral life. 

But life cannot maintain itself alone. The Creator of life has entrusted us with the responsibility of preserving, developing, and perfecting it. In order that we may accomplish this, He has provided us with a collection of marvelous faculties. And He has put us in the midst of a variety of natural resources. By the application of our faculties to these natural resources we convert them into products, and use them. This process is necessary in order that life may run its appointed course. 

Life, faculties, production--in other words, individuality, liberty, property , this is man. And in spite of the cunning of artful political leaders, these three gifts from God precede all human legislation, and are superior to it. 

Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place.”  FB
