  1. So what is the boundary of "Capital Grounds"? Can you still get close enough to hear the speakers, etc., if you remain off of these "Grounds"?
  3. I'm getting kids off to school right now but I will call you asap.
  4. Do you think such a thing would be beneficial? Or would we be better off just to recruit our own network? Recruitment and coms are going to be top priorities after I get this Richmond thing done...
  5. Now I'm not familiar with all these handguns... But this Glock I have is a favorite of mine because of it's simplicity. You can field strip the thing with eyes closed in seconds without worrying about small parts flying off never to be found again... and I can drive nails with it at 30 yards easy and pop a man sized target at I don't know how far away...
  6. I wonder if they would be interested in assisting the Mercer County 1st in coms only? As a network of emergency communications? They could help incorporate our members into the communications network if they would be interested in doing such a thing... Everyone in the Mercer County 1st could join if need be and they would have us. Everyone in the Mercer County 1st will have to have training, I know. We'll get to that shortly also...
  7. It's going to take some doing. That's for sure. I'm thinking about running an ad in the trading journal. Tell me, Radio... Is there a ham radio club anywhere around here in Mercer County?
  8. I swear... Before I scrolled down and saw your reply, I was going to make a post saying the same thing, lol. I want one too!
  9. First, I'm assuming you are asking that question as it pertains to the decision of whether or not to go to Richmond, Va. on the 20th. At the helm of what personally motivates me, first and foremost, is a personal responsibility I can no longer ignore. I say "no longer" because "ignore" everything politically is exactly what I did for most of my life. I know for certain that the reason this country is so f***ed up is because of way too many people that are just like the way I used to be. That said, for the last 15 years I have been deeply engaged and have been most outspoken in my Constitutionally Preservatist viewpoints. So... Manning up to that I have to ask myself: Am I going to be content to run my mouth and hope it will influence the way people think, actually giving them maybe the other side of these perspectives they may have never heard before? That certainly is a big part of what I do. But when it is POSSIBLE for me to WALK THE WALK... do I? Or am I just going to TALK THE TALK? My conscience no longer allows me to convince myself there's a great reason NOT to do something that is well within my ability to do. SO. I have full intentions on being in Richmond on the 20th. I have full intention to stand in support of a Constitution that nearly half of all Virginian voters neglected when they stayed home during their last elections. I will do my best to convince a tyrannically-minded legislative body NOT to pick the fight that MIGHT come their way if they choose to TRY and make CRIMINALS out of LAW-ABIDING Citizens. But that's not all that motivates me. Firearms is a way of life in my area, my county, my state, my community and my family. I cannot imagine not teaching my children how to handle, care for and operate a firearm. I cannot imagine not having a firearm to defend myself and my family. But most of all, I cannot imagine my own government wanting to take so much from me just because they are afraid of me. That means they MUST be planning something very bad FOR me. Those are the high spots of what "guides" my decision to protect our rights, in this and every other issue.
  10. That's the norm now on all the big tech social media sites. My twitter reach was shut down a long time ago permanently. That's where you keep your account but your tweets aren't seen. Facebook has had me go through this bs verification 3 times concerning my American Rear Guard news page, photo id of licence, verification codes sent through snail mail, verification codes sent to your cell, blah, blah, blah. Now they just shadowban me everytime I violate political correctness that lasts for weeks at a time, never an explanation. Never even a notice anymore. The post reach just goes to ZERO. And I'm small time. If they do that to me, they have clamped down on free speech on EVERYONE that speaks from a Constitutional, conservative, preservative perspective. Until Congress (the House AND the Senate) and the President change the laws making these social media websites PUBLISHERS so they can be held accountable when they edit or restrict speech, there's nothing we can do about it.
  11. I've sent you an email that probably never made it to you then. I'll correct it in my file. And it looks like we are going to have to go on a damned hunting expedition to find any other active militias in WEST VIRGINIA. The low participation is nothing less than startling.
  12. The Sig Sauer MG 338 machine gun. (Sig Sauer/Released) The U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) has completed its safety certifications of Sig Sauer’s latest machine gun offering, the MG 338, and has begun purchasing the weapons systems. In a press release, the firearms company confirmed it had passed the certifications and delivered the first of its machine guns to the U.S. military’s elite military command on Wednesday. The new machine gun is touted as a lightweight new weapon that can bridge the gap between the U.S. military’s current M240 (7.62x51cal) medium machine guns and its Browning M2 (.50cal) heavy machine guns. Click the video below to watch: The MG 338 was approved along with Sig Sauer’s new .338 Norma Mag Ammunition and a new suppressor system. According to Sig Sauer, the certifications represent the first time in decades that the U.S. military has approved a new machine gun, ammunition and suppressor at the same time. “For the first time in decades the U.S. military certified a new machine gun, ammunition, and suppressor at the same time, bringing new innovation, portability, and increased lethality to our ground forces, with all components coming from one company,” said Sig Sauer President and CEO Ron Cohen.

On top of its M240 predecessor, Sig Sauer claims the MG 338 has increased range the .338 ammunition can deliver greater lethality. The MG 338 touts an effective range of 2,000 meters, a distance of over 1.2 miles. The weapon’s proprietary recoil mitigation system, and free-floating barrel are meant to further assist the accuracy of the weapon, while reducing the fatigue a user may experience from heavy and repeated weapon recoil. The new machine gun is also designed with ambidextrous controls, allowing both right-handed and left-handed users to easily operate the weapons system. Further, the machine gun has a quick change barrel, allowing operators to easily remove a damaged or overheated barrel. The machine gun also has a built-in folding stock.

(Sig Sauer/Released) The new suppressor system, described by Sig Sauer as the Next Generation Suppressor, “drastically reduces the impact of harmful toxic fumes and signature, making the operator less vulnerable.” Sig Sauer won another U.S. military contract in 2017, to produce the Modular Handgun System. The 10-year, $580 million U.S. Army handgun contract conferred Sig Sauer the right to produce the services’ replacements for its existing Beretta M9 pistols. Article online here. #SigSauerMG338
  13. *There have been numerous threats of "#FalseFlag" events and conspirators trying to infiltrate the ranks of those that are gathering to rally and protest against Virginia's new sweeping gun confiscation legislation. These people want to "blend in" with law abiding citizens in order to hide themselves, perpetrate crime, and have it BLAMED on the law abiding assembly. To learn more about this and the REAL American Militia, visit www.MyMilitia.com .* (story below of three such individuals) This undated photo provided by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police shows Patrik Mathews. FBI agents on Thursday, Jan. 16, 2020, arrested the former Canadian Armed Forces reservist and two other men who are linked to a violent white supremacist group and were believed to be heading to a pro-gun rally next week in Virginia’s capital. The three men are members of The Base and were arrested on federal charges in a criminal complaint unsealed in Maryland, according to a Justice Department news release. (Royal Canadian Mounted Police via AP) COLLEGE PARK, MD – FBI agents on Thursday arrested a former Canadian Armed Forces reservist and two other men who are linked to a violent white supremacist group and were believed to be heading to a pro-gun rally next week in Virginia’s capital. The three men are members of The Base and were arrested on federal charges in a criminal complaint unsealed in Maryland, according to a Justice Department news release. Tuesday’s complaint charges Canadian national Patrik Jordan Mathews, 27, and Brian Mark Lemley Jr., 33, of Elkton, Maryland, with transporting a firearm and ammunition with intent to commit a felony. William Garfield Bilbrough IV, 19, of Denton, Maryland, is charged with “ transporting and harboring aliens.” The three men were believed to be planning to attend the pro-gun rally planned for Monday in Richmond, according to a law enforcement official who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity to discuss an active investigation. In encrypted chat rooms, members of The Base have discussed committing acts of violence against blacks and Jews, ways to make improvised explosive devices, their military-style training camps and their desire to create a white “ethno-state,” according to an FBI agent's affidavit. Mathews and Lemley were arrested in Delaware and Bilbrough was arrested in Maryland, according to Marcia Murphy, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s office in Maryland. All three men were scheduled to make their initial court appearances Thursday afternoon in Greenbelt, Maryland. Court papers say Mathews illegally crossed the U.S. border near Minnesota in August and investigators allege Lemley and Bilbrough then drove from Maryland to Michigan to pick up Mathews before the three headed to Maryland in late August. Mathews was a combat engineer in the Canadian Army Reserve. Lemley was a "cavalry scout" in the U.S. Army, according to a court filing. U.S. and Canadian authorities had been searching for Mathews after his truck was found in September near the border between the two countries. He was last seen by family members in Beausejour, northeast of Winnipeg, on Aug. 24, according to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The Canadian military’s intelligence unit was investigating Mathews for “possible racist extremist activities” for several months, according to the Canadian Department of National Defence. Authorities say Lemley and Mathews built an assault rifle using several parts, including an upper-receiver that Lemley had ordered and shipped to a Maryland home. In December, the three men gathered at an apartment that Lemley and Mathews rented in Delaware, where they discussed The Base and its activities and members, passed around the assault file and tried to make the drug DMT, a hallucinogen, according to court papers. A few days later, Lemley and Mathews bought 150 rounds of ammunition and paper shooting targets and Lemley was spotted by an FBI agent at a gun range in Maryland. Court papers say federal agents heard the gun firing in rapid succession and authorities allege that Lemley later told Mathews: “Oh oops, it looks like I accidentally made a machine gun.” Federal agents appeared to be tracking the men's movements and set up a stationary camera near the gun range, which captured video of Mathews shooting the gun there on Jan. 5. Court documents say Lemley had also ordered 1,500 rounds of ammunition and he and Mathews visited the gun range as recently as Saturday. Lemley also is charged with transporting a machine gun and “disposing of a firearm and ammunition to an alien unlawfully present in the United States.” The Anti-Defamation League said members of The Base and other white supremacist groups have frequently posted online messages advocating for “accelerationism,” a fringe philosophy in which far-right extremists “have assigned to their desire to hasten the collapse of society as we know it.” “The term is widely used by those on the fringes of the movement, who employ it openly and enthusiastically on mainstream platforms, as well as in the shadows of private, encrypted chat rooms,” the ADL says. In recent months, FBI agents have arrested several members of a different far-right extremist group, the neo-Nazi Atomwaffen Division. Atomwaffen has been linked to several killings, including the 2017 shooting deaths of two men at an apartment in Tampa, Florida. Report can be found online here.
