My Militia Standards and Practices - Bylaws
WE PRESENT THE FOLLOWING MILITIA S&P BYLAWS AND DECLARE THEM TO BE ACCEPTABLE GUIDELINES FOR WHICH ALL UNITS SHALL CONDUCT THEMSELVES.
 
MY MILITIA IS NOT ANTI-GOVERMENT NOR ARE WE AN UMBRELLA ORG. WE ARE A NETWORKING, SELF RELIANCE AND EDUCATION COMMUNITY. WE HAVE DEVELOPED THESE BYLAWS AS A STEP TOWARDS THE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF OUR GOALS.
 
The following communication surveys the presence of the Unorganized American Militia movement as to be depicted on the internet and explores how the Militia movement uses My Militia website to build a networked community. The adaption of My Militia from a tool of the elite to a mass consumption commodity for everyone shall increase the potential to improve social organization and strengthen the movement within. This transformation also allows for new conceptions of the community and improves the way relationships based on our shared identities are built. My Militia helps its members improve upon themselves and expand.
 
My Militia has allowed locally-based groups and isolated individuals to connect with one another and create a shared identity. This identity, based on the connections mediated by My Militia gives the membership a bridge by converting users from individuals to being a part of their local Militia organization.
 
This is by no means a comprehensive list of all standards held by various elements of the Militia movement. However, it is indicative of the common strands that we feel militia groups should operate. The exact manner in which these three beliefs are verbalized differs from group to group but there are some widely shared interpretations.

My Militia vs Social Media
This month, the team have been discussing the role of My Militia in the social media age.

The perspective we have shared among the staff follows.....

Aside from you owning your data completely with no "Big Brother" to worry about, the main advantage to building your militia, (Recruitment, Events, Communication and Management etc...) on the My Militia platform is allowing yourself and your members to become relatively anonymous.

With social media (like Facebook), it only takes a few clicks to discover more about you. It's easy to look at your political leanings, which area you live in, what your favorite films are and so on. Next thing you know people are looking at your family photos and private things that more than likely shouldn't be shared so openly or freely.

All that information comes with you when you join a community like Facebook whether you like it or not.

With My Militia, you can create your own personality unique to us. You don't need to reveal your real name, or photo. Try that on Facebook and you will be asked to prove who you are.

My Militia puts the privacy back in your hands.

We really like that. No one will be more responsible with your digital footprint than you are.

We will be digging into this in more depth this month. We came across some fantastic research which supports this and has some lovely quotes such as "Facebook is being alone, together and My Militia is being together, together."

I'll leave you with that thought. There is nothing Facebook can do (that matters) that we can't do better. That's how we feel, why we remain independent and that is why we are here. for you.

8 Essential Qualities That Define Great Leadership in the Militia
#MILITIA #MYMILITA

https://www.mymilitia.com/topic/55309-8-essential-qualities-that-define-great-leadership-in-the-militia/

1. Sincere enthusiasm
2. Integrity
3. Great communication skills
4. Loyalty
5. Decisiveness
6. Managerial competence 
7. Empowerment
8. Charisma

Every one of these qualities is absolutely essential to great leadership. Without them, leaders cannot live up to their full potential. As a result, their team members will never perform as well as they can either. Because of this, Militias must learn the best ways to identify and also to develop these necessary traits in existing and emerging leaders.

The Things You Miss
One of the things I miss most about Iraq, or even the military life in general, was just sitting around smoking and joking after work. 
 
Before I deployed, most of the time it was us getting off of work, heading the club, telling women we were pilots or special forces. We'd sometimes fight with the locals or any unfortunate Marines who wondered too far from their club. 
 
Then, while in Iraq, I'd get off of work sometime in the wee hours of the morning. I'd hang out at Green Beans, drink coffee until the sun rose or a mortar came in.

How to Disappear without Committing Pseudocide
How to Disappear Completely And Never Be Found

 
I wanted to move into a homeless shelter because I thought that girls who were homeless would be more likely to go out with me.
I had this fantasy version of what a homeless shelter would be like. We’d sneak around to each others rooms as if they were dorm rooms. It would be romantic. Lots of giggling. And crack smoking. Heck, I’d try it. For love.
I had a job and wasn’t really homeless. I had a place to live. But my girlfriend at the time hated me I was pretty sure of it and I needed a change.  Plus the homeless shelter was right next to my place of work. I could’ve lived at the shelter and it was about a 20 second walk to work.
How great can life be? I ask again: How great can life really be?
The homeless shelter director said “no” to my request. He called my references. I had said I wanted to write about the experience. My boss, my ACTUAL boss at the time, said I was probably mentally ill.
I didn’t have that job for too much longer. Nor did I move into the homeless shelter. But they did let me give chess lessons there.
All of this to say, there’s something primal in me that wants to disappear. To mix with what I view as the lowest of the low, to forget about my past, to sign up for a future that is meaningless, to think only about right now and give up everything else.
When I was a kid I bought the book “How to Disappear Completely  And Never Be Found.” 
I don’t know if any of the techniques still work but here was the author’s plan:
Look at old newspapers from around the day you were born to find the names of babies that died that day. Ask your state government for their birth certificates.
This isn’t unusual. Many people lose their birth certificates.
Use the birth certificate to get a social security card (say you’ve been a permanent student up until now). Use the two forms of ID to get a bank account, credit cards, driver’s license....

Boeing AH-64 Apache
The Boeing AH-64 Apache is an American twin-turboshaft attack helicopter with a tailwheel-type landing gear arrangement and a tandem cockpit for a two-man crew. It features a nose-mounted sensor suite for target acquisition and night vision systems. It is armed with a 30 mm (1.18 in) M230 chain gun carried between the main landing gear, under the aircraft's forward fuselage, and four hardpoints mounted on stub-wing pylons for carrying armament and stores, typically a mixture of AGM-114 Hellfire missiles and Hydra 70 rocket pods. The AH-64 has a large amount of systems redundancy to improve combat survivability.
The Apache originally started as the Model 77 developed by Hughes Helicopters for the United States Army's Advanced Attack Helicopter program to replace the AH-1 Cobra. The prototype YAH-64 was first flown on 30 September 1975. The U.S. Army selected the YAH-64 over the Bell YAH-63 in 1976 and later approved full production in 1982. After purchasing Hughes Helicopters in 1984, McDonnell Douglas continued AH-64 production and development. The helicopter was introduced to U.S. Army service in April 1986. The first production AH-64D Apache Longbow, an upgraded Apache variant, was delivered to the Army in March 1997. Production has been continued by Boeing Defense, Space & Security; over 2,000 AH-64s have been produced to date.
The U.S. Army is the primary operator of the AH-64; it has also become the primary attack helicopter of multiple nations, including Greece, Japan, Israel, the Netherlands, Singapore, and the United Arab Emirates; as well as being produced under license in the United Kingdom as the AgustaWestland Apache. American AH-64s have served in conflicts in Panama, the Persian Gulf, Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Iraq. Israel used the Apache in its military conflicts in Lebanon and the Gaza Strip; British and Dutch Apaches have seen deployments in wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

M4 Sherman
Medium Tank M4 Sherman

The M4 Sherman (named after the famous American Civil War general William T. Sherman) is one of the few really iconic fighting vehicles of the Allies during World War Two, and one of the most famous tanks in history. But while this historic status was gained partly thanks to its intrinsic qualities, but also due to the sheer numbers in which they were provided, only surpassed by the Soviet Union’s T-34, with a staggering 50,000 total delivered. It remains by far the most widely used tank on the Allied side during the war. It was derived into countless derivatives and had a very long postwar career which lasted well into the Cold War. It has been largely compared to the T-34, and had the occasion to confront some during the Korean War.
However, the Sherman was not as successful as it seemed. Derived in a haste from the previous and controversial M3 Lee/Grant, it was the first to bear a fully-traversing turret with a 75 mm (2.95 in) gun. It was designed from the very beginning for mass-production. Cheap and relatively simple to build, easy to maintain, reliable, roomy, sturdy, fast, well-armored and well-armed, it was the good-all-around armored vehicle the Allies had sought for until 1942, when it first arrived on the North African front.
It literally soldiered in every corner of the globe, under many colors, from 1942 to the end of the war. These theaters included (in WWII alone) most of North Africa, Russia, most of Europe, the Eastern Indies, the Philippines, many Pacific islands and China.
Genesis and context until 1940

A-10 Thunderbolt II aka Warthog
Service: USAF
Armament: 30 mm GAU-8/A cannon; up to 16,000 pounds of mixed ordnance on eight under-wing and three under-fuselage pylon stations, including 500 pound Mk-82 and 2,000 pounds Mk-84 series low/high drag bombs, incendiary cluster bombs, combined effects munitions, mine dispensing munitions, AGM-65 Maverick; AIM-9 Sidewinder.
Power Plant: Two General Electric TF34-GE-100 turbofans
Speed: 450 kts (Mach 0.75)
Range: 2580 miles
Affectionately called the “Warthog” for its aggressive look and often painted with teeth on the nose cone, the A-10 Thunderbolt II is the U.S. Air Force’s primary low-altitude close air support aircraft. The A-10 is perhaps best known for its fearsome GAU-8 Avenger 30mm gatling gun mounted on the nose. The GAU-8 is designed to fire armor-piercing depleted uranium and high explosive incendiary rounds.
The A-10 Thunderbolt II has excellent maneuverability at low air speeds and altitude, and is a highly accurate and survivable weapons-delivery platform. The aircraft can loiter near battle areas for extended periods of time and operate in low ceiling and visibility conditions. The wide combat radius and short takeoff and landing capability permit operations in and out of locations near front lines. Using night vision goggles, A-10 pilots can conduct their missions during darkness.
Thunderbolt IIs have Night Vision Imaging Systems, or NVIS, goggle compatible single-seat cockpits forward of their wings and a large bubble canopy which provides pilots all-around vision. The pilots are protected by titanium armor that also protects parts of the flight-control system. The redundant primary structural sections allow the aircraft to enjoy better survivability during close air support than did previous aircraft. The aircraft can survive direct hits from armor-piercing and high explosive projectiles up to 23mm. Their self-sealing fuel cells are protected by internal and external foam.

USS Texas - BB-35
USS Texas (BB-35), the second ship of the United States Navy named in honor of the U.S. state of Texas, is a New York-class battleship. The ship was launched on 18 May 1912 and commissioned on 12 March 1914.
 
Soon after her commissioning, Texas saw action in Mexican waters following the "Tampico Incident" and made numerous sorties into the North Sea during World War I. When the United States formally entered World War II in 1941, Texas escorted war convoys across the Atlantic and later shelled Axis-held beaches for the North African campaign and the Normandy Landings before being transferred to the Pacific Theater late in 1944 to provide naval gunfire support during the Battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa. Texas was decommissioned in 1948, having earned a total of five battle stars for service in World War II, and is now a museum ship near Houston, Texas. In addition to her combat service, Texas also served as a technological testbed during her career, and in this capacity became the first US battleship to mount anti-aircraft guns, the first US ship to control gunfire with directors and range-keepers (analog forerunners of today's computers), the first US battleship to launch an aircraft, from a platform on Turret 2, and was one of the first to receive the CXAM-1 version of CXAM production radar in the US Navy,
 
Among the world's remaining battleships, Texas is notable for being the first US battleship to become a permanent museum ship, and the first battleship declared to be a US National Historic Landmark., and is the only remaining World War I–era dreadnought battleship, though she is not the oldest surviving steel battleship: Mikasa, a pre-dreadnought battleship ordered in 1898 by the Imperial Japanese Navy is older than Texas. She is also noteworthy for being one of only seven remaining ships and the only remaining capital ship to have served in both World Wars

Independence Day 2018 - A Message From My Militia
As we celebrate our nation’s independence day, let’s remember our past leaders who lost their lives in the battle for the freedom we are enjoying today. It did not come so easily. We are greatly indebted to these heroes.
 
Just a little consideration on a very special day...
As patriotic citizens, let’s put extra effort to perform our own civic rights and responsibilities. We ask that everyone celebrates in a way that does not cause our living heroes, anguish.  Fireworks can be a trigger for difficult memories for combat veterans for the many dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder, the sound of the fireworks popping is all too similar to the sound of bullets. Be Aware and Be Respectful.
 
Your contribution towards moving the country forward is very important. We need to be mindful of how our actions and in-actions affect other people’s well-being.
 
We wish a safe and wonderful independence day to you and your family.

Almost One-Third Of All Americans Think Civil War Is Coming
Remember when talking about a potential civil war in this country meant getting fitted for a tinfoil hat? It was either that or people figured you were actually hoping for it. One or the other, generally. It wasn’t enough to say, “I see this coming.” No, it had to be either that you were nut or you were hopeful.
Considering how many people seem to think that’s in this country’s future these days, that has probably changed a good bit.
In other words, most people don’t think it’ll happen, but less than a third are convinced it’s not going to happen.
Realistically, I’m not sure how probable this is. I tend to think we’ve got a major blow coming. We’re way past due, in my opinion, which means we should all be a little conscious about that going forward.
But I do think no one is going to be let down by being ready. We’ve already seen groups of people in this country resort to violence in an effort to foist political change on people. The Antifa riots, for example, were nothing more than low-grade domestic terrorism. It’s not a leap for them to take it a step further, now is it?
What else was the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise but domestic terrorism? This was someone who resorted to violence to cause political change, the very definition of terrorism.
Is a civil war the same as domestic terrorism?
Well, it can be. It’s a matter of scale, though. It’s about numbers. The lone wolf domestic terrorist isn’t part of an army trying to change the United States government. It’s a schmuck who thinks his way is the only way.
But if you get enough of those schmucks together, the potential for ugliness increases.
I can already see the comments. “We’d win. No problem,” and other variations on that theme. Honestly, we probably would. We’d have the police and military on our side, most likely, and we’d have plenty of armed individuals ready to fight back as well. We’d hold the edge in most instances.
That doesn’t mean it won’t get ugly, though. Fighting in our streets, assassinations, bombings, all things we’re used to seeing on the news…in other countries.
Frankly, I hope that 31 percent is wrong. I really do.

Marital Law is being enacted soon and U.S. Military has been ordered to enforce it. - coming in two Months. Additional reports of military buildup confirmed by other reporters
I had been informed by my buddies in U.S. Marines that President Trump had ordered U.S. Military to enact a Martial Law and FEMA camps for homeless people two months later. I don't have full specifics nor details of this operation, but it does seem to confirm unusual buildup in zones across United States where we are seeing more military presence here as opposed to homeless crisis that has been ongoing since 1990s.
 
Plus to confirmed reports, here are confirmed sightings of Japan military has begun building up its military size, so are the German Military as well other nations doing same. It does seem that it is happening much more sooner than expected.

Gun Review: Meridian Defense MDC-47 Volk AK Rifle
In the world of guns, the AK-47 has always been the equivalent of “sensible shoes.” While not bedazzled with the latest accoutrements that its AR neighbor enjoys, it has proven itself to be a dependable firearm in pretty much every corner of the world. Its reputation as a reliable weapon is legendary. For all intents and purposes, the gun has gone along with very few real upgrades outside of what a few hardcore users have done. Essentially, the belief in this particular corner of the gun world is “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
While this is a sound principle in most cases, the venerable AK can indeed stand for some improvements. This thought has been shared by many AK aficionados, but one company in particular has put this classic gun under the knife to produce a truly fantastic rifle. Say hello to Meridian Defense Corp. (MDC) and its MDC-47 Volk.

Apple Makes A  Stand Against FBI
February 16, 2016

A Message to Our Customers

The United States government has demanded that Apple take an unprecedented step which threatens the security of our customers. We oppose this order, which has implications far beyond the legal case at hand.

This moment calls for public discussion, and we want our customers and people around the country to understand what is at stake.

The Need for Encryption

Smartphones, led by iPhone, have become an essential part of our lives. People use them to store an incredible amount of personal information, from our private conversations to our photos, our music, our notes, our calendars and contacts, our financial information and health data, even where we have been and where we are going.

All that information needs to be protected from hackers and criminals who want to access it, steal it, and use it without our knowledge or permission. Customers expect Apple and other technology companies to do everything in our power to protect their personal information, and at Apple we are deeply committed to safeguarding their data.

Compromising the security of our personal information can ultimately put our personal safety at risk. That is why encryption has become so important to all of us.

For many years, we have used encryption to protect our customers’ personal data because we believe it’s the only way to keep their information safe. We have even put that data out of our own reach, because we believe the contents of your iPhone are none of our business.

The San Bernardino Case

We were shocked and outraged by the deadly act of terrorism in San Bernardino last December. We mourn the loss of life and want justice for all those whose lives were affected. The FBI asked us for help in the days following the attack, and we have worked hard to support the government’s efforts to solve this horrible crime. We have no sympathy for terrorists.

When the FBI has requested data that’s in our possession, we have provided it...

MRAP & Roll: Why Police Need Armored Military-Surplus Rigs
According to most definitions, armor is anything that can be used as a protective covering. It’s a defensive tool that has and can save lives.
Unfortunately, recent anti-law enforcement political rhetoric has turned the term “armor” and law enforcement’s need to use it into a cause de celeb for those whose political agenda lines up with chants of “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon.”
That misguided political activism has emboldened some to target and attempt to kill law enforcement officers. Since January 1, 2016, law enforcement fatalities have seen a record 129-percent increase, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. That included an attack by a self-proclaimed ISIS disciple in Philadelphia who attempted to kill Philadelphia Police Officer Jessie Hartnett. Thankfully, the officer was saved by his body armor. Armor saves lives, and the better the armor, the more good-guy lives can be saved.
Saving Lives
In late 2015, in San Bernardino, California, officers engaged in a running gun battle with two other self- proclaimed followers of ISIS. In the final gun battle, the terrorists fired more than 80 rounds of rifle-caliber ammunition at responding police officers. Of course, most types of rifle rounds will penetrate a standard patrol car like Swiss cheese. At one point, when some officers were pinned down, the local SWAT team moved in with an armored vehicle. That armored vehicle provided the necessary cover from the terrorist onslaught and helped saved officers’ lives.

Beofengs and their Ilk-Banned
Beofengs and their Ilk-Banned
 
 
Yes, but not like you think.
 
As most here who have spent time reading this site know I hate these things. They transmit out of band, they are not certified for anything they can transmit on. The antennas are trash from the factory and they break with annoying regularity.
 
However, a repeater system has banned them
 
 
Apparently as technology has spread for Digital Mobile Radio another issue has come up which has caused the operators of DMR-MARC series of repeaters to ban the use of Chinese radios which have been repeatedly shown to cause harmful interference
 
Baofeng DM-5R test results
 
By Chris Hamilton | 01/03/2017 | Filed under: Uncategorized
 
Rocky Mountain Ham Radio continues to investigate alarming problems with recently released low-cost DMR Tier II radios. This article focuses on the Baofeng DM-5R Plus and Baofeng DM-5R with Tier II firmware update. A later article will examine the Radioddity DM-55 / Tytera MD-398.
 
 

 
Performance of three DMR Tier II radios compared. From left to right: Tytera MD-380, Baofeng DM-5R, Motorola XPR 6550. The Baofeng has the Tier II update applied, making it equivalent to a DM-5R Plus.
 
 
Our tests find that the Baofeng DM-5R is unfit for DMR use and degrades the repeater network. We will continue to forbid the use of it on our systems.
 
Here are our findings.
 
The short version:
 
“Does the DM-5R transmit a legitimate digital voice signal on timeslot 1?” Yes.
 
“Does the DM-5R transmit a legitimate digital voice signal on timeslot 2?” Uncertain. Baofeng says no, but we have been able to activate talkgroups which are only carried on timeslot 2. This requires more research. The radio transmits a copy of the TS1 signal on TS2. It is not supposed to do this. (Updated Jan 5 2017)

How To Survive Indefinitely Without Modern Medicine
1. Address Current Health Concerns
 
Many of us are on medications. We need to plan how to go without to the extent we can do that. In some cases, there is no way to go without. If you have type 1 diabetes and require insulin or need dialysis for a kidney, the 19th century approach is not for you. This reflects the powerful reality that modern medicine, though much maligned, has saved countless lives.
 
The hidden secrets of making herbal medicines…right at your fingertips!
 
Many people, however, can take positive steps to reduce or eliminate some of their medications. Of course, don’t do this without talking to your doctor!
 
A lot of health conditions can be improved without medicine. For example, one of my friends was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Before she knew it, she had been prescribed two drugs to reduce glucose levels and another for blood pressure. However, through a strict diet and exercise regimen, she was able to lose enough weight to reduce her glucose levels and blood pressure. She didn’t “cure” the diabetes, but she got her glucose level and blood pressure down to more acceptable levels. If she can maintain this, she may not need the prescribed drugs for years.
 
Losing weight not only can slow the onset of type 2 diabetes, in can prevent other health conditions as well, such as heart disease and cancer. In other words, good habits now can prevent future health conditions that may suddenly debilitate you in a future without modern health care.
 
On a similar note, if you have a medical condition that can be corrected but is not yet serious enough for immediate attention, reconsider. For example, if you have poor eyesight that laser surgery can repair, or a failing knee joint that can be replaced, talk to you doctor about doing it sooner rather than later.
 
2. Look into Alternatives to Modern Medicines

Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?
Their story…
Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died.
Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned.
Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured.
Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.
 
They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.
What kind of men were they?
Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists.
Eleven were merchants.
Nine were farmers and large plantation owners; men of means, well educated.
But they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.
 
Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.
 
Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.
 
Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton , Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.
