Do not give in to Evil, but proceed ever more boldly against it

Advance to Contact

Mike explains some of his motivations here.

My thoughts?

When the enemy is out there somewhere, and the tactical and/or strategic situation does not allow one to sit at home, one must go and find where the enemy is.

"Find", after all, is the first element in the classic "find 'em -- fix 'em (in place) -- and f*ck 'em" formula of warfare.

The efforts of open-air freedom fighters are, in large part, designed to force the opposition to react.

The fact that the BATFE is merely the low-IQ simpleton brother agency of the much more dangerous Federal Bureau of Investigation doesn't change that reality.

Remember -- the ATF starts fights, and generally gets their tails whupped.

The FBI then comes in and kills enough people to declare victory. Read "Cold Zero" by Horiuchi-comrade Christopher Whitcomb if you have any doubts.

Both agencies are simply different faces of the exact same apparatus, with each element answering to the Attorney General, Eric Holder -- who in turn answers to President Barack Obama.

So when you see articles like this one in yesterday's USA Today, know that the OpFor is sending a hard ping in your direction:

Feds try to detect 'lone offenders'
By Kevin Johnson, USA TODAY

Federal authorities have launched an effort to detect lone attackers who may be contemplating politically charged assaults similar to the recent murders of a Kansas abortion doctor and a Holocaust museum security guard.
The effort, known as the "Lone Wolf Initiative," was started shortly after President
Obama's inauguration, in part because of a rising level of hate speech and surging gun sales.

"Finding those who might plan and act alone, the so-called lone offenders ... will only be prevented by good intelligence, the seamless exchange of information among law enforcement at every level, and vigilant citizens reporting suspicious activity," said Michael Heimbach, the FBI's assistant director for counterterrorism.

Secret Service spokesman Malcolm Wiley said the FBI is sharing information with his agency.

Agents from all of the FBI's 56 field offices have been dispatched on a range of assignments, said two U.S. law enforcement officials who were not authorized to speak publicly about details of the program. Among the duties:
• Reviewing records in domestic terrorism investigations that may point to more suspects.
• Analyzing records for suspicious purchases at fertilizer or chemical suppliers whose materials could be used in bombmaking.
• Checking rolls of prisoners scheduled for release or who have been recently released for past links to extremist groups.

One of the goals, FBI officials said, is to develop more comprehensive information on possible lone attackers to disrupt plots before they are launched.
ACLU policy spokesman Michael German, a former FBI agent, said the government effort resembles a form of "predictive policing" that can sometimes result in the improper profiling of people based on race, ethnicity or political leanings.

Yet former Homeland Security secretary Michael Chertoff said the lone attacker has been a "persistent problem," primarily because information about those plots is very closely held.

Federal investigators spent years chasing Unabomber Ted Kaczynski and Olympic Park bomber Eric Rudolph before capturing them.

Hate groups have multiplied across the USA, from 602 in 2000 to 926 in 2008, reports the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks extremist groups and works to limit their activities. Mark Potok, director of the center's Intelligence Project, said the lone attacker is an extension of the "leaderless resistance" concept of activism advocated by white supremacist Louis Beam.
Potok cites the attack by James von Brunn, an elderly white supremacist charged with fatally shooting black security guard Stephen Johns at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in June. That attack came 10 days after abortion provider George Tiller was shot to death at his church. "No one in the world would have expected an 88-year-old man would do that," Potok said of von Brunn.


What you, as a free American, decide to do in response, if anything, to such pings is entirely up to you. Just understand that it most likely won't be the incontinents at BATFE who come after you.

And for the Federales who are reading this post, you and your fellow agents would be well served to remember this excerpt from Mike's letter to AG Holder:

...And Eric, not to put too fine a point on it, but you and I both can make an educated guess about what mischief will likely ensue if ANY high-profile Second Amendment activist "has an accident". Best to tell your lads and lasses to stick to those nice safe paper cases (you know, the ones with the 4473s completed with a "Y", rather than "yes") and confine their wet-work fantasies to their off-duty reading. There's still lots of vicious drug gangs, murderous career criminals and real terrorists out there to keep them busy without picking a fight with honest American gunowners who merely want to be left alone...

If "the bad thing" starts in this country, there will be no rules.

No rules at all.

Food for thought and wise choices, one hopes.

Sic semper tyrannis.

Sounds like the Fed's are getting John Q Public ready and accustomed to "preemptive" strikes, to take out the "home grown terrorists".

What the heck, no need for search warrants, arrest warrants, or any of the other legal paperwork, that they probably put into the same category as the Constitution, ya know, that "G-d piece of paper.

Here they come......

Lock and load.

"No Rules"

Beg to differ. There will be rules.

Waco rules: No hands-up retreat allowed.

Serbian rules: Authorized Media is a legitimate target.

Romanian Rules: A quick trial to verify that these are the ones, then execution without fanfare in the square.

Of course, real soldiers under legitimate command get professional consideration.

In Pakistan, there is a place called the Kimber pass. There guns are built with blacksmiths tools. These guns are built out of whatever metal they can get their hands on. They are of a low quality, but they work. Just think about what the creative minds of Americans can build in machine shops, weld shops, garages, and home work shops that are in every town in this country. This does not take into consideration the guns and ammo that have been bought over the years. The government has been ignoring the Constitution for too many years, law enforcement agents should walk very lightly in these times of public outrage.

Rudolph let himself get caught and Ted was turned in by his brother, neither were captured through excellance of police work.

How would a "lone offender" plot an attack? Plan, maybe, but not plot. A plot requires two or more persons.

"No rules" Anon:

Agree with yours; submit also one other, as a child of the Pacific conflict:

Pacific Theatre Rules: Every enemy asset -- combatants, materiel, transportation, production, communication, and support for each -- is to be engaged with fire, steel, and lead until all enemy assets are destroyed or until unconditional surrender.

Why? Who do you think will be commanding them? Is having your rights infringed by an "official" army better than having them infringed by someone else?

At a rifleman training session I learned that some of the militia on April 19? 1775 had made their own firearms and gear.

So right on Anonymous.

Good article, thanks. I missed this USAToday article altogether.
