25 Years Ago Today the Federal Govt Changed its Rules to Launch a Sniper Attack on Off-Grid Family

Ruby Ridge

Randall and Vicki Weaver and their children wanted nothing more than to be left to live an isolated life in peace in their cabin enclave on a northern Idaho mountaintop called Ruby Ridge. Untrusting of the federal government and of the belief society had taken an insurmountable turn for the worse, the Weavers — as many residents in the remote and breathtaking area — taught their children to be self-sufficient and defend themselves with firearms from unwanted intrusions onto the family’s property.

But the Weaver’s seemingly idyllic life came to an appallingly violent end over several hours from August 21 to 22, 1992, in a horrendously botched federal raid that would also profoundly alter perceptions about the U.S. government in the minds of even ordinary Americans.

My friend Ken M  was in charge of security for FS rally Saturday, he standing for MA-Oath Keepers.  MA  AP-III  (American Patriots III%, which he and I are both affiliated with, as well as MAOK) had given the stand down order last Monday, based on the previous weekend and the expected turnouts and response.

AP-III was correct in doing so.

It was a complete shit show.

Ken made the call to pull the plug about an hour early for security reasons, ie there wasn't any.  Those on the band stand (Free Speech) numbered about 40.  They were outnumbered 1000 to 1.  The crowds were closing on them and BPD was not going to be able to stop them.   They coordinated with BPD, who then EVAC'd them in vans to a safe location.  Vans were attacked en route out of area (pounded on, hit, etc - but not disabled)

There was a large contingent of violent "counter protesters" mainly BLM & ANTIFA, but the bulk of the crowd was ordinary Moonbats who of course do not believe in Free Speech.

The rally had nothing to do with White Supremacy  or Nazis or whatever, but simply to stand for Free Speech for ALL.

I did not go into Boston, as it went down about as I expected...  I had monitored on Zello app, MAOK channel.   I can be found on .....................  It is a pretty good secondary COMS option.

There will be an AAR forthcoming and if I get permission I will send that along as well.

A Warning to Trump and the Nation

Via Iver

 http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/jojo7.png

The coup against President Trump has been developing for months and can be seen on the nightly news. Yet few talk about what it really means for the country and what can be done to avert this fate.

Fortunately, we have the bulwark of the Constitution and protracted process inherent in the rule of law. But the urgency and clarity of mind to prevail and prevent the ouster of the President can certainly be heightened by grasping the goals and temperament of the power brokers who seek his destruction and the subsequent reordering of the country.

Suffice it to say that removal of Trump without sufficient cause would likely have dramatic and lasting repercussions. At a minimum, the power brokers involved in a successful coup would feel entitled to a big role in reordering the nation. At the other end of the spectrum, a more dramatic maximum type response could come in the form of a civil uprising of armed constituencies that voted for Trump, who might well feel there is no other recourse from the fundamental betrayal of the ballot box and disenfranchisement by their government.

If You Could Only Own One Rifle: Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle .450 Bushmaster — Full Review

 

Ammo is expensive.

I don’t usually put much stock in marketing slogans, but in this case, I think Ruger nailed it. Their new Gunsite Scout Rifle in .450 Bushmaster is a fantastic all-around firearm, offering the power to take down large game and the maneuverability to carry in the thickest brush.

The .450 Bushmaster is one of three “thumper” rounds most commonly chambered in the AR-15 platform (the .458 SOCOM and the .50 Beowulf complete the trio). The quest for the perfect AR-15 cartridge is ongoing, but that hasn’t stopped manufacturers from implementing these powerful rounds in other platforms.

Ruger currently offers two models chambered in .450 Bushmaster: an iteration of their American Ranch series and the one I tested, the Gunsite Scout.

Atlantic: The Eclipse is Racist, Solar System has Implicit Bias

Can't make this crap up.

Stop watching the eclipse. It's racist.

If you want evidence that the American leftist cult has reached a point of fanatical unreason every bit as bad as the darkest of dark ages, here's a sentence from the Atlantic's piece on the eclipse.
On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will arrive mid-morning on the coast of Oregon. It has been dubbed the Great American Eclipse, and along most of its path, there live almost no black people. Presumably, this is not explained by the implicit bias of the solar system.

NASCAR: Camping World Asks Fans Who Agree With Donald Trump To Shop Elsewhere

Don't worry that won't be a problem.  I thought I had posted on this before, but don't see it.

Close followers of NASCAR know Lemonis, CEO of Camping World, is a major player in the sport. 

His brand is the title sponsor of the truck racing series, while its subsidiary Overton’s has sponsored multiple races and cars this season. With that in mind, NASCAR chairman Brian France — a vocal Donald Trump supporter — might want to watch his words. Amid the flood of CEOs rushing to distance themselves from Trump after the U.S. president’s wishy-washy denunciation of white supremacy last weekend, Lemonis issued some of the harshest remarks yet. In an appearance Wednesday on CNBC’s “Power Lunch,” Lemonis invited people who supported Trump’s comments to shop elsewhere.

Monument madness a leftist cover to crumble America from within

Don’t for one minute think this past week of Charlottesville-tied mayhem has been over a statue of Robert E. Lee.

It’s not. It’s about power, control and the political course our nation will take as we head into the future.

Don’t see the connection? Walk with me.

The clashes in Charlottesville, disgusting as they were — fatal as they proved — were quickly seized upon by a committed far-left that wants nothing more than to A) remove this president from office and B) change the constitutional nature of America’s society for one that’s ruled by whim and mob voice, rather than law and order.

Charlottesville was the perfect confluence of hot emotion and irrefutable evil. The neo-Nazi mindset is ugly and white supremacist beliefs, wicked. The torch-bearing protesters angry at the idea of the whitewashing of history that comes with the removal of the Confederate statue didn’t help their cause by — well, bearing torches.

The Antifa fascists, Black Lives Matter types and communist-socialist-anarchist thugs who came to Charlottesville weren’t exactly innocent players in the clashes that followed; they came to the community with violence on their minds.

Judge to IRS: Start naming names

Via Billy


Think the IRS targeting scandal had dissipated? So did the IRS, but it got a very unpleasant surprise on Thursday in federal court. Judge Reggie Walton ordered the agency to start identifying the employees who took part in the targeting of conservative non-profit groups and to provide specific explanation for the delays in approval of that status for dozens of them. “Why hide the ball?” Judge Walton asked (via TaxProfBlog):
