  1. "The efforts of today's globalists (from many different places upon this earth) are aimed at taking America down from within. It seems that literally 2% of the people have all of the voice while the 98% are silent. That is the result of globalist control of our national media in the United States. So if you're just flipping on your televisions, your laptop or phone and are not paying much attention to where you gather your facts, you will be told a great many lies and they will tell you those lies often enough that you will begin to believe them until you reach a point that you're just someone sitting and screaming at your tv. They will get you hook, line and sinker. The globalists right now, this year in 2020, are doing their very best to re-write American and select world history. Somehow, some way, we must become one of the world's worst tyrants, BE one of the world's worst tyrants, so that there is justification to bring our foundations down before a dumbed down public with an intentionally damaged attention span. The globalists have those gifted to write busy at the task of warping and altering history to better suit their own hidden agendas. But before that can be effective, they must 1st erase and replace the history we do have. They haven't specifically got around to Independence Day yet. But it's coming. Who knows. They may even already have a plan to disrupt our celebrations THIS year with their domestic political street-terrorist/mercenaries. But the silent 98% will not forget. Not this year. Not any year I'm still drawing breath." ~ Matt In WV The Fourth of July—also known as Independence Day or July 4th—has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution. On July 2nd, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. From 1776 to the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with festivities ranging from fireworks, parades and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbecues. The Fourth of July 2020 is on Saturday, July 4, 2020. A History of Independence Day When the initial battles in the Revolutionary War broke out in April 1775, few colonists desired complete independence from Great Britain, and those who did were considered radical. By the middle of the following year, however, many more colonists had come to favor independence, thanks to growing hostility against Britain and the spread of revolutionary sentiments such as those expressed in the bestselling pamphlet “Common Sense,” published by Thomas Paine in early 1776. On June 7, when the Continental Congress met at the Pennsylvania State House (later Independence Hall) in Philadelphia, the Virginia delegate Richard Henry Lee introduced a motion calling for the colonies’ independence. Amid heated debate, Congress postponed the vote on Lee’s resolution, but appointed a five-man committee—including Thomas Jefferson of Virginia, John Adams of Massachusetts, Roger Sherman of Connecticut, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania and Robert R. Livingston of New York—to draft a formal statement justifying the break with Great Britain. On July 2nd, the Continental Congress voted in favor of Lee’s resolution for independence in a near-unanimous vote (the New York delegation abstained, but later voted affirmatively). On that day, John Adams wrote to his wife Abigail that July 2 “will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival” and that the celebration should include “Pomp and Parade…Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other.” On July 4th, the Continental Congress formally adopted the Declaration of Independence, which had been written largely by Jefferson. Though the vote for actual independence took place on July 2nd, from then on the 4th became the day that was celebrated as the birth of American independence. Early Fourth of July Celebrations In the pre-Revolutionary years, colonists had held annual celebrations of the king’s birthday, which traditionally included the ringing of bells, bonfires, processions and speechmaking. By contrast, during the summer of 1776 some colonists celebrated the birth of independence by holding mock funerals for King George III as a way of symbolizing the end of the monarchy’s hold on America and the triumph of liberty. Festivities including concerts, bonfires, parades and the firing of cannons and muskets usually accompanied the first public readings of the Declaration of Independence, beginning immediately after its adoption. Philadelphia held the first annual commemoration of independence on July 4, 1777, while Congress was still occupied with the ongoing war. George Washington issued double rations of rum to all his soldiers to mark the anniversary of independence in 1778, and in 1781, several months before the key American victory at the Battle of Yorktown, Massachusetts became the first state to make July 4th an official state holiday. After the Revolutionary War, Americans continued to commemorate Independence Day every year, in celebrations that allowed the new nation’s emerging political leaders to address citizens and create a feeling of unity. By the last decade of the 18th century, the two major political parties—the Federalist Party and Democratic-Republicans—that had arisen began holding separate Fourth of July celebrations in many large cities. Fourth of July Fireworks The first fireworks were used as early as 200 BC. The tradition of setting off fireworks on the 4 of July began in Philadelphia on July 4, 1777, during the first organized celebration of Independence Day. Ship’s cannon fired a 13-gun salute in honor of the 13 colonies. The Pennsylvania Evening Post reported: “at night there was a grand exhibition of fireworks (which began and concluded with thirteen rockets) on the Commons, and the city was beautifully illuminated.” That same night, the Sons of Liberty set off fireworks over Boston Common. Fourth of July Becomes a Federal Holiday The tradition of patriotic celebration became even more widespread after the War of 1812, in which the United States again faced Great Britain. In 1870, the U.S. Congress made July 4th a federal holiday; in 1941, the provision was expanded to grant a paid holiday to all federal employees. Over the years, the political importance of the holiday would decline, but Independence Day remained an important national holiday and a symbol of patriotism. Falling in mid-summer, the Fourth of July has since the late 19th century become a major focus of leisure activities and a common occasion for family get-togethers, often involving fireworks and outdoor barbecues. The most common symbol of the holiday is the American flag, and a common musical accompaniment is “The Star-Spangled Banner,” the national anthem of the United States. article online here
  2. "We need to ban together and become one united force to deal with whats coming... scary times ahead and I know so many like-minded but organization is what needs to happen now." ~ @ Laura O'Melay Slater Hello Ms. Slater and WELCOME to the Three04 in Wetzel county! I agree with your every word above. It's as if we are starting from scratch in building our local and community militias and they onle way are going to succeed is to organize our people specifically to location... So that's the work I've begun here under the Three04 and also all the states in America attempting this same thing. Please feel free to introduce yourself. You appear to be our only member in Wetzel, but I don't think it will be long if you wait for others to join in. My trouble is, we have multiple countries with multiple members that are still reluctant to explore founding a unit. If you have any questions, please feel free to write anytime.
  3. All members from Wetzel County, West Virginia, please answer here. Please give your name, location, and your experience if you are comfortable with doing so. We definitely need your name and location as it enables us to gather members from the same location for the purpose of forming a new militia in your area. Thank you very much for your time and work to develop our community militias.
  4. "Looking for militia to join, I'm located in Boone Co. WV. , 40 yo, I'm a general class lic. amateur radio operator, 15yr class A truck driver, very proficient with electronics and computer ops, firearms training limited to hunting and sidearm training, I'm not ex military, just a dad and husband that has a bad feeling of what the future holds for our country Would really love to start a militia in my area." ~ @ Richard Bishop Hello Mr. Bishop. Thank you very much for your observations and sense of responsibility requiring you to take action if at all possible. I was kind of surprised that I had to create a thread for Boone county because it seemed like to me we should have already had a couple of members from there. But I was mistaken. You must be the first. But people are registering with the Three04 almost daily. If you will, give this some time and let another sign on from your location. It only takes one to create an active unit, but more the merrier. We've got a long way to go to get the participation we need for our local militias. Thanks you and welcome!

  6. "I’m so confused right now. I see signs all over saying black lives matter. I’m just trying to figure out which black lives matter. It can’t be the unborn black babies. They are destroyed without a second thought. It’s not black cops. They don’t seem to matter. It’s not my black conservative friends. They are told to shut the **** up if they know what’s best for them by their black counterparts. It’s not black business owners. Their property does not mean anything. It’s not blacks who fought in the military. Their statues are destroyed by the black lives matter protesters with disdain. So which black lives matter again? I can’t keep up. I just can’t. I’m exhausted trying to figure out what we’re all supposed to do, believe, and be offended and outraged by next. Two months ago, First Responders were all the rage. In fact, they were heroes. We gave them free coffee, meals, and cheers as they drove by. Today we hate them and want them defunded because they can’t be trusted. Two months ago, truck drivers were the heroes, as well, for keeping America moving and the grocery stores stocked. Today we block the roads with protesters, drag them out of the cabs and beat them half to death. Nurses and Doctors are still cool for now. But they may be unemployed. They too are heroes, unless of course they truly believe all lives matter. Then they’re filled with hate and are part of problem like so many others. Just 45 days ago protests weren’t “essential” and were considered criminal, selfish and a murderous activity. Today they are gloriously critical and celebrated. All of the obvious criminal and murderous activities are simply ignored. If you protest about lockdowns for freedom, you are selfish and you will spread a virus. If you protest, loot, and riot for social justice, you are a warrior and the virus cedes. Trust the experts. No, not those experts. Don’t wear masks ... wear masks, but only good ones. Wait, don’t wear masks, wear anything as a mask. Never mind on the masks. Not sure, but if you don’t, you hate people because you could be an asymptomatic spreader. Wait. That's not a thing anymore? For 3 months, NOTHING was more important than social distance. In fact, we gave up all of our liberties for it. We canceled schools, medical and dental procedures, yet allowed the murder of babies, canceled activities, closed businesses, eliminated every spring rite of passage from prom to graduation, denied people funerals, even at Arlington, and we wrecked the economy for it. Then came social justice, and social distance was no more. Now things are more cut and dry though. A thousand people at three memorials for someone they never even met. It's a matter of "respect". But you can only assemble 100 or less people. Black Lives Matter. Of course they do. Then multiple black police officers and individuals were killed during the “peaceful protests”. I don’t see any outrage. Black individually owned businesses burned to the ground. Silence. Deadliest weekend in Chicago. NOTHING!! I’m really confused now. Look at the data, NO, not that data. Do the math. No, you can’t do the math like that. Only the experts can understand the data and math. What do you mean other cities/states/governors are interpreting the data differently? Pools are safe in Indiana, but not Michigan? Playgrounds are safe in your town but not mine? Amusement parks are safe in Florida but not Ohio, nor Michigan. Just listen to the black community leaders. No, not them. If you are silent you are part of the problem. If you speak, you are part of the problem. If you have to ask, you don’t understand. If you don’t ask, you don’t care. It’s all so predictable, tedious, and exhausting. Nothing adds up. It’s one gigantic common core Math life problem, with ever changing denominators that I’m sure the media and politicians are eagerly ready to solve for us....until the next "crisis". So for now I pray. I pray God will heal our land and bless the United States of America. So just keep it simple. None of the above really matters. It's all about changing an election, past and future. Period. The Democrats have backed themselves into a corner like a badger with Joe Biden. They know their way of thinking, gravy train and party will be in great peril if Trump is reelected. A badger is a very dangerous animal if cornered. They will burn everything and destroy everything they can so that even if Trump wins, it won't be much of a prize. And their leaders don't care, they are all 80 or older. This is just a last chance to save their legacy. Jokes on them, this will be their legacy!" ~ Mike Carlson

I live in the area code 304 close to Lakin Prison by Wewt Columbia, WV but more the direction toward the Point Pleasant high school. I am in close distance to lakin, Leon, pretty much all of Mason county, but closer to Point would be best. I am a Veteran 68W from the U.S. Army. Out of the 232nd Med. Battalion in Fort Sam Houston, TX. I am looking for a unit that is well prepared and Training on a frequent basis. When it comes to God, my Family, the constitution I take VERY personal and serious when someone tries to infringe upon those things. Foreign or Domestic as this case seems to be. I will say this I Do Not take any joy absolutely none whatsoever in killing any of my own countrymen . But, with my Bible in my right Claw and my Arrows in my Right. But, if need be I WILL DEFEND THE constitution of the United States and do it with Honor and With Integrity.

  11. Hello and welcome to MyMilitia!

    How is this site panning out for you? If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

    I couldn't help but notice your within flirting distance of the WV line. If you don't have an active unit in Ohio at the moment, it might pay to keep an eye out in the WV Three04.

    Have a great day and thanks for your interests and passions concerning restoration of our community militias.

  16. Hello Gentlemen, There are three signed on in this group with @ R.Cox , @ Tim Hays and @ John0011 . It looks as if Tim and John are chomping at the bit to start a group. Cox may be also. I'll continue to try to raise him to let him know there are others in the area now. If I can offer some advice, maybe you Mr. Hays and you Mr. Marling (@John0011) can just get together for a meet and greet, maybe some shooting, and if you so decide, it takes no more than either one or both of you to found a group. It may just be two of you in the beginning, but there are advantages to that as you get to think things through as needed as your membership grows. If you decide to start a group, word of mouth usually travels well through circles like this and I also have in instruction I can pass your way concerning how to start a facebook and/or Parler page for your new unit. The advantage to the facebook page has advantages because of it's advertising and ability to target already like-minded people within your own county. This is necessary to let people know you are now there. Get together, Gentlemen. It excites me to know there may be a THIRD active unit soon in the Three 04. And thisn one could be in Ohio County! Matt Thompson Wv Three04 Oversight
  17. I just sent you an invite to the Three04, Sir... with an invitation to introduce yourself in the Ohio County thread. There are plenty enough of you to get together for a meet and greet to start your own unit in Ohio County. Please join, and WELCOME!

  20. Note to @ Charles davis , @ Shawn Stark , Maybe you two can meet up for some breakfast and some target shooting. Eh?
  21. Note to: @ Roy Edwards and @ Jason(grizz) Scott, Perhaps you two could do a meet and greet, grab a meal, do some target practice and talk a spell. Eh?
  22. Hello and WELCOME to our newest member in WOOD county, @ Shawn Stark . I appreciate your interest, passions and service with 12 years in the Navy, Sir! I see another member here in Wood county. Perhaps you two can connect for some breakfast, a little shooting practice and some good conversation. Who knows. Might even end up starting a unit right there in Wood! Nice having you, Sir.
