  1. The Fantasy Green Deal is more like it. Wonder how big a carbon footprint Cortez has? She wants to get rid of cows for farting, you know.
  2. I believe that would be the Indiana Guard Reserve.
  3. Personally speaking, I'd rather have a helmet than a plate carrier. If I get tagged in a vital organ and bleed out, it's done. If I get a head wound/brain injury and live... I guess it boils down to a "quality of life" issue.
  4. There are all kinds of factors to consider when evaluating a weapon... No doubt the S&W Sport 22 is a nifty, light weight, sharp looking, tacti-cool little rifle, but. Extra 10 rd. magazines are about $24 each. You can get a Ruger 10/22 for quite a bit less, and there's all kinds of "optional equipment" available for them, including 25 rd. aftermarket mags for around $15. As a strictly survival rifle, a .22 might be okay, but a better all-purpose rifle (I think) would be a 223. From all I've read since leaving my beloved AK platform... the Smith-Wesson M&P Sport II in 223 is about the most reliable entry-level AR on the market. It's commonly available for less than $500, and while it doesn't match a high-end rifle, it is accurate and combat worthy right out of the box, and has an excellent warranty: buy it, put it to work. I know; you can build for a lot less (if you are so inclined) but then you need to consider/research all the components, then make multiple purchases etc. Just my two cents on the subject.
  5. Welcome aboard Crash. If you look at the list of units, you'll see most are either defunct or have a facebook page. That leaves it pretty much open, as far as developing your own unit, depending on your location. I think the ICVM might be state-wide, but I'm not sure. In any case, welcome.
  6. I did a little checking and here are a couple of numbers that illustrate how helpful our allies are to "the cause" of protecting world democracy. At it's peak the US had roughly 100,000 soldiers in Afghanistan. The British peaked at about 9,500 and the Dutch a little under 2,000, while the French had approximately 4,000. A pretty niggardly showing if you ask me... considering over 330,000 American soldiers died in Europe, bailing them out TWICE. The importance of our allies indeed.
  7. Here's how I see it. Secretary Mattis is an excellent Secretary of Defense: knows his stuff front to back... He is, however (as we all are) a product of his experiences. If you tell him to do XYZ that's exactly what he will do. Now we get to his personal mindset. I don't know the man personally, but his mission for the last 30+ years has been to aggressively engage the enemy and destroy him. He's conditioned to confront an enemy. I believe now is the time when we need to re-evaluate our "global commitments". Remember that no foreign country really cares about the USA. If they join us, it's to further their own interests. We have been the strongman/world (military) superpower for over 70 years. We are facing some major challenges right here, right now. A civil war with communist/anarchist Antifa for one (but includes socialist members of deep state and Congress): sponsored in part, I believe, by an educational system that has betrayed our nation's ideals. Sanctuary cities which don't recognize Federal laws. An economic war with China, Russia and others who would love to see our economic might crippled or destroyed. An invasion (UN sponsored?) of illegal immigrants that could literally re-make our country. Crumbling infrastructure (which we will need if there's a real war). The real possibility of a shooting war on several fronts (Iran, Baltic countries, Ukraine, Pacific/China etc.). And if I spent a little time thinking about it, I could add more. I believe we need a Sec. Def. who can re-focus on the military problems confronting a nation on the downturn: juggling political and economic priorities as well as our military objectives. Remember, the Roman legions were winning wars in far off lands when the city fell to the Barbarians. Our power is not unlimited and we need to take care of our own interests. Do you honestly think 2000 men at an installation (Syria, Poland, Estonia etc.) can hold against a serious assault by several armored divisions with air support? If victory is possible in Afghanistan, why haven't we achieved it after 17 years? Time to start thinking about which fights are worth fighting.
  8. Strictly my opinion here... but the bottom line seems simple to me. For over two hundred years, the American people bought, sold, collected and carried guns. Nothing much happened, except eeeevery once in a while, there would be a wacko/villain who would go off the deep end and commit an act of extreme violence. These were truly "isolated incidents". Basically, I'm talking about the period of 1890's (the end of the wild west) until 2006 or so. Today we have a school shooting or night club massacre seemingly every week... although if you'll notice carefully, these events cease when a bigger event, like the border caravans, government shutdown etc. comes along. Setting aside a rigid statistical analysis, we can draw a couple of fairly obvious conclusions. 1. These mass shootings are possibly being "managed" for some purpose... to further the UN Small Arms Treaty, influence public opinion in regard to changing firearms laws in the country, destroying the Constitution and our national sovereignty, or, as Congressional Bills are so fond of stating: FOR OTHER PURPOSES. 2. There has been a profound change in the way people think/view the world. For the last 40 years or more, there has been a night-and-day shift in the way we raise and educate our young people. There is little if any respect for anything: even the value of human life. There's a laundry list of issues, but the bottom line is; without a solid foundation, kids grow up to be adults; delicate snowflakes who think they can do anything they please... other folks be damned. Of course, we will always have the mentally challenged among us, but what have we done about their care during the last 40 years? 3. As a society/culture we tolerate things today that would have been punished swiftly and harshly 40-50 years ago. Chief among these is the belief that we need to restrict the entire population for the actions of a few. Logic is as dead as the Dodo bird. People who are intent on doing what they want to do (perform criminal acts) won't care two whits about whatever laws we make, new or old. Punish the offender, don't hobble the entire population.
  9. Agreed... with this understanding. The militia has suffered from "bad press" for over twenty years now, and public perception can be quite negative. Also note, your local Police Dept. is there to ENFORCE the law (as directed by the Mayor, City Council etc.): not to serve and protect the people. The SCOTUS has confirmed that they have no obligation to protect anyone. Gen. Mike Flynn trusted the "police" (FBI) and they betrayed him... it could happen to your group. Same goes for the Sheriff of your county. He, however, is elected by the people and MAY be more in tune with them. Before disclosing to any law enforcement agency, much of anything about your group, check to make sure they really, truly support the Constitution and won't "inform" on you, put you under surveillance, or take you in to custody for exercising your civil rights. My first contact would probably be with the Sheriff, without much concern for the local police.
  10. Great article!! The US has the best logistics in the world. 20 or so people supporting each infantryman. That's what gave us the edge in WWII. In contrast, the Japanese had 3 supporting 100 infantry. They could pack a punch...but couldn't sustain the drive: always running low on food, ammunition, boots, fuel etc. Never underestimate the value of support, and definitely something to consider when organizing your militia unit: who, how and when will your unit get re-supplied (right down to dry socks)?
  11. Historically, virtually all communist militarized forces have used "red" in it's title, thus denoting their communist origins. This begins IIRC back in 1917 when the Bolsheviks (red flag for communist revolution) took over the Russian government and began their civil war (Red against White armies) and is pretty much accepted as such around the world. I don't think you'll have much luck getting American patriots to join a "Red Army" of any kind. Antifa might line up to join. May I suggest Continental Army of (your state/county etc.) as a name?
  12. I'm down with pretty much everything that's been said. Now, with the situation being what it is... where is the line that we will not tolerate being crossed? A guy in Indiana might not be inclined to take action over a concealed carry restriction in Oregon, for example. Who will make the call on when the balloon goes up (will it be nation wide)?

Who we are

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect..... Respect for our past, respect for our future and respect for each other. In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
