Pikeville This Weekend

As June closes in, we at 12 Round Productions are in the final stages of edits for Lies of Omission, bringing together music, sound and B-roll to meet the deadline. The deadline is NOT June 1st, it is IN June, that timeframe has not changed.

But, aside from publicity and the like, I have seen my role diminish to the point that I can do something else with my time, which brings me to Pikeville, KY this weekend. In the post I wrote a few weeks ago, here, I mentioned that I thought this was necessary. It will be an important skirmish in the war on the First Amendment. These Antifa(s) are outright Communists and are dedicated to the disruption and disintegration of the United States as a republic. It can be summarized as nothing less and it is up to us, to show that we are not afraid of them and are, in fact, anxious to engage them, because we know that they are paid-for muscle and anti-American agitators.

America may no longer be what it once was, or, at least, what I thought it was, but no matter how it is politically diminished, it is still full of Americans who hold the principles it claimed to promote close to their heart and at the forefront of their minds. This is a war on the street-level between those soldiers who are willing to place themselves in danger to stand up for the principles of liberty and the globalist-collectivist left.

Those gathering in Pikeville, KY do not all have the same ideology, or the same perspectives, they might even be at each other's throats in a normal context, but when it comes to the defense of our individual rights, they align close enough to center to be effective.

This is not a fight that we have chosen, this is a fight that Antifa wanted, that they planned in order to disrupt an annual gathering of the Traditional Workers Party, something I probably would not normally support, but in this context, when Antifa has targeted them for a beat down, I will be there. I am traveling a great distance to be there, because I believe in, whenever possible, backing up my rhetoric with action. I will also be there with a camera to document this for the film. To show those who view our work an illustration of all of the dangers of continuing to ignore the issues before us today.

So, whoever might read these words and think of participating in this event, look for me and if you can, help me get some footage. At least, should the worst happen to me, take the card out of the camera and secret it away before it is destroyed or confiscated.

As some of you know, Kentucky is my ancestral homeland, so I do not feel as if I am intervening in a fight that does not concern me. My family held land in and around the Georgetown/Frankfurt area on Miller's Run where it flows into Elkhorn Creek. I have a copy of a deed dated 1787. I am proud of my Kentucky heritage and that is what I am going to defend this weekend.

Who Will Make The Call?

There are bigger things to think about than Lies of Omission, though strategically it makes a great deal of sense, especially in these times while the Marxists are exposing their aims and tactics and they are being met with less and less support. The American public is being treated to a good dose of anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-white, anti-family and anti-law behavior from those high up in government circles. They are in open revolt against these values and more and more Americans are recognizing that those who are supposed to be upholding the law are more and more frequently defying the law. The message of "obey the law while opposing the law" is being lost and all the better.

As I have often pointed out, this is a war. It might be a soft war, a cold war, but there are battles being waged, skirmishes at least and the fruits of the Marxist message are pulsing through the Antifa  crowds. They have identified the enemy as the "white guy" an easy target, who they can label with all sorts of evil intent, whether true, or not, but it is a premature action in which they are engaged. Average Joe does not want to fight with Antifa anymore than they want to fight on our side, the side of the republic. They don't want to fight at all, for anything or anyone.  "Fight, fight, fight" is a sports cheer, not a philosophy.

But, I don't want to focus on anything as casual as Antifa, they are just the goons hired to incite riots, but it is interesting to note that the feds were observing these actions at the Berkeley protest unbeknownst to the mayor or the police chief. The police have sanctioned this sort of violence against patriots. We have seen it before and it is now out in the open. A cop turns his back just when it looks like a Marxist thug will do damage to a "patriot" and I use that term loosely in this context. An average Trump supporter is not necessarily a patriot. But, it extends past Trump. As I have tried to explain before Trump is a symbol, a totem for all of us, white, Christian, heterosexual, conservative believers in individual rights. They see us and they point at him. They hate him as a means of hating us. The fact that Trump neither speaks for us nor does he have the same principles or ideals is irrelevant. We are operating in the world of symbols, something a Marxist understands a heck of a lot better than those of us who consider each person an individual instead of a representative of a larger group.

This is the essential battleground. The Marxists only see us in the collective sense. We are at a bit of a disadvantage, because we do not see them in the collective sense, but in the individual sense. I don't hate anyone as a representative of a group like they do. I might hate a Marxist, but it is much harder to come up with hate for an individual until I am convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are indeed a Marxist instead of just a useful idiot. Pity is all I have for a useful idiot. That doesn't mean that I don't recognize that the useful idiots will have to pay the biggest price for being either useful or an idiot.

I explained to our Music Director Rob Wallace that we are a nation in transition from a democratic republic to a soviet police state. I don't know Rob's politics. Having been in the film industry for most of his life, a lot of it in LA, I assume that he is not friendly with everything he is seeing on the screen of Lies of Omission  as he sets it to music and corrects the flaws in the sound, but he is smart and he is polite. His take will be interesting when he has a chance to view it as a whole. But, this nation is in transition. It is obvious that short of a nuclear holocaust there will be no outright day of reckoning here in the US. We are not even able to heap the sort of scorn and derision on the Clinton cabal who ensured that North Korea would be able to place this nation in the danger that it is today. And, this is only a preview of what we will be dealing with in a few years when Iran perfects their delivery system. Nuclear war, at this point, is almost a given and it is due solely to our own politicians.

I have watched several milestones pass by that should have caused a counter-revolution against the forces of Marxism that have marched through our institutions until we are discussing whether we can talk about this aspect of our lives, or not, this idea or not, whether or not we are able to make a simple observation or not. These are things that should not even rise to the level of consciousness where individual rights are placed in primacy. All the while North Korea and Iran plot our demise with weapons we have provided. Who will call for the rope for those who are responsible for the deaths of millions?

A Man In The Clouds

I visited with a friend today, George, at the Sangre de Cristo Sentinel, named after the Mountain Range, but nonetheless translates as the "Blood of Christ." And, we had the typical, yet completely engaging sort of conversations I tend to have with folks in the "doer" column. If, by the way, you have not heard the story of George and his huge "open carry" 4th of July contingent in the annual Westcliffe, CO parade, you should look into it and take out a subscription to his local paper in the right side bar, because it has plenty to entertain a national audience. Have you ever seen a weekly community newspaper with a Second Amendment section and a weekly column by a local pastor? The Sangre de Cristo Sentinel has them both.

George Gramlich is hated by his liberal, i.e. Marxist competition and none of the local Marxists will advertise in his paper, but he has found like minds in the rural parts of the county and a few more in the neighboring counties, so he is making a success of the paper, but a little help never hurts.

Anyway, that was all preamble to the main gist of the conversation, during which we delved into the topic of Marxism, the futility of the Constitution in the hands of men devoid of character and where the subject of faith was brought up as wholly necessary for a government such as this to work. Okay, I know this has been gone over a few times, but bear with me.

A little later on, I was listening to Glenn Beck, for whom I have lost a lot of respect, but it's better than NPR on a long drive to get more B-roll for Lies of Omission, though it is nearly complete, at least in the roughcut sense, so we will be looking for screening locations in the near future. I don't have a fundrazr campaign running right now, but when I do it will be at https://fundrazr.com/liesofomission3 I need to put together another trailer over the weekend.

Okay, getting back to it, I was listening to the squishy Glenn Beck and he had a guest on, a former KGB agent who lived in the US during the '70s as an atheist and a spy named Jack Barsky, who has a book out. He was talking about how he was a rabid atheist and could not be a conservative and a communist, so he cloaked himself as a liberal. Right there, it tells you a lot about the liberal mindset, if you didn't already know, which, if you are reading this, I suspect you do.

They got around to talking about his life as a spy in the United States. He talked about the loneliness and how he had a relationship with a woman who was a Christian, who persisted in her testimony and he had met Christians whom he had grown to like, so he indulged her here and there, but could not get over the idea that he was trained as a chemist and believing in some fantasy man in the clouds just wasn't working for him. And then, she asked him to listen to a favorite and famous preacher who approached Christianity in a way Barsky could handle.

Where these two instances today line up is that both George and myself and Beck and Barsky arrived pretty much at the same place. There is no morality without God. Barsky claimed to think of himself as a generally "good" person as an atheist (and yes, I know Atheists read this blog and will be fruitful in the comment section. I can handle it) but, when he looked at his life he had done some very bad things, hurtful things to people, but was still able to carry that generally "good" moniker, but came to realize that one might be "good" as an Atheist, but without any sort of dedication to being good. They just sort of wander around and try to be good as a choice between that and being "bad," but it is a sort of personal choice, not a requirement, or a duty the way it is with Christians. But, this is his story, not so much my own. And I know the Atheists who read this blog are "good" people, that is not the issue. The issue is that the government does not function without God. The Constitution relies on such things as oaths and integrity and it works so long as those things mean something to the people who write the laws, but, and this was all I was trying to get at:

Where God is not present, one is capable of being a Marxist, because it is all about the allegiance to the state, or in this case, the government and there is no sense of what one is doing is wrong, if it benefits the government, whereas a Christian might be instructed to do something that goes against their faith and will refuse.

Yes, one might be an Atheist and still be a great patriot to the cause. I am not challenging that. But, a betrayal would simply be a betrayal to an idea, or a piece of paper, or a cause, it is not a betrayal to one's God like it is to a Christian. The point being, that in a government where people are sworn to uphold the Constitution, if they don't believe in God, there is no punishment for violating their oath. Is there?

This is the point Barsky was making, that he could only be a Communist while he was an Atheist, but when he became a Christian, he could no longer be a Communist. It didn't mean he had to be a federalist type of republican/capitalist, but he could not be a Communist. While he was wavering he began to read about Lenin, thinking that it would give him power against Christianity and therefore embolden his Communism, but when he read the truth about Lenin from Western sources he was appalled at what he discovered and the whole ruse of his life began to crash down around him.

So, the really interesting part of this whole discussion was that he had, at one time, believed that Christians were ignorant and foolish to believe in some man in the clouds, but eventually came to see that he had been doing the same with Lenin and was just as ignorant and foolish as he once believed Christians to be. Now, if you are a Christian, you see the hand of God in that. I did.

This Is A War

In reference to my previous post, if you look at the comments.

Are we not yet done with this quarreling over what is legal and not legal, Constitutional and not Constitutional and whether the Constitution was a flawed document? What difference does it make? It is not in use, but if the shell of what it was can be used as a tool to hammer the Marxists that have co-opted it for their own use when it serves them and ignore it all together when it is not useful, do we really have to have this argument?

Let me spell it out. There is no Constitution. The fact that it exists on paper somewhere is wholly irrelevant. Why do you think I have largely (not completely, but largely) refused to reference it over these past few years? I used the Constitution, not as a shield as some seem to think, but as a reference point to demonstrate that our government was no longer bound by it. It was in the vain hope to give some courage to those who thought our government was somehow still legitimate. Everything I have written on the Constitution, even when I wrote the book, was to illustrate the fact that it was not in use by our government and that all of the machinations of the Supreme Court were, if not designed, at least instructive, that they knew how to get around all those pesky words.

The only thing the Constitution is good for now, is to bludgeon the Marxists, to make them violate it, to explain their violation and watch them make logical fools of themselves when they try to justify their illegal actions. That's all. Nothing more.

I have been called a "statist" for suggesting that the federal troops take into custody those Mayors protecting criminals, harboring felons and abetting further crimes against the people. Trust me, I am no statist. I recognize the Constitutional right for the federal government to "faithfully execute the law" nothing more. I agree with the law that says immigration laws should be enforced. There was a time when these laws were passed to protect the people from criminal gangs and invading troops. Yeah, I support that. I do not support many functions of the federal government as it has been reprogrammed to endorse and support Marxism. I don't support the Patriot Act. I don't support Roe v Wade, or any other Marxist law designed to establish the federal leviathan as ruler of all things, but there are a few good ideas in there to be supported.

But, none of this gets to the heart of the issue. We are at war for the very survival of liberty and we are losing badly. Would I pick up a Constitutional club with which to strike at the Marxist rule of mayors? Yeah, I would. Do I think that makes the Constitution some sort of, as Claire Wolfe recently said "some magical document that will restore liberty?" No, I don't. It is just paper, but if paper can be used to damage a Marxist, okay, I'll use it. I'll use any manner of weapon against the people and system that has robbed us all of the lives we should live.

All too often this "community" engages in intramural battles over terms and ideas and choose to label one this thing or that, when we should be focusing all of our attention on just one thing, destroying the Marxist rule we have allowed to take control of our lives. It is a long, hard fight back to just a semblance, a shadow of the liberty we have ceded to the government by our inaction and it is a fight during which I will use any weapon that comes easily to my hand.

We need every fighter we can recruit. Perhaps, I am wrong. Please, God, if there have been formations of patriots taking place every Saturday in parks across the nation to embolden and inspire recruitment, let me know where that is taking place and I will jump in line to take my position along with my brothers and sisters, but I don't see it. I've never heard of it.

We are long past the time when we could cull out the undesirables by a litmus test on certain ideas. We are at the point where we face extinction, obliteration, or complete disregard by other stronger and more supportive groups like Black Bloc, or Black Lives Matter, or some other group by their very actions inspire recruitment, because it really seems like the patriots aren't doing a dang thing for recruitment. Marxists are in the universities, recruiting young minds and bodies and on some campuses where the Army can't even recruit.

Lies of Omission is a recruitment tool and should be used as such and disseminated as such. That's what I have been working all these months to produce, me and others. I certainly am not alone in this effort, but it is what I have focused all my energy on, because I see it as a chance, a longshot, perhaps, but a chance to reach those minds that are being coveted by the Marxists in every institution.

Do you realize that all of the Millennials have been raised in Soviet schools, universities, churches, cities, states, counties? Do you realize that they have actually been Soviet citizens all this time? Do you really expect them to shun what they have always known without cause? Without instruction? Do you think that they will come to some sense of national pride and reverence without exposing this Marxist hell for what it is?

We have not done our duty and now we have to yell harder, bargain more, use whatever device is left to us to convince this generation not to abandon everything good about this nation in order to comply with the Marxist dictate. In the end, we may have to fight a war against our own children to preserve anything of what made this nation great so that subsequent generations might live in liberty.

To that end, I am up for anything.

If There Be Lawlessness

Things are proceeding so fast toward cultural and political meltdown that it is difficult to keep up. City states such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York and Chicago have declared their independence from the union and are in open rebellion. Call it what you will, take the MSM meme of protecting illegal aliens if you choose, but it is nothing less than secession by disobedience. It is a flagrant act of rebellion against federal authority and should be met with armed troops on the steps of these city halls.

Typically, as a Constitutionalist, there is the 10th Amendment to be considered here, except that national security is a delineated power of the federal government and a "uniform rule of Naturalization" is among the powers of Congress, not the purview of random city councils. It is also the duty of the president to ensure that all laws are "faithfully executed."

But, here is another prime example of the corrupt media hiding, through lies of omission, the true fact of this rebellion. It is none other. It is a direct threat to the stability of the United States and the rule of law, which has been under constant assault for decades. Federal judges openly disregard clearly Constitutional acts of the duly elected President and we are expected to wait for the legal processes?

There are hearings being held to discover that for which there is no evidence ever presented to suggest that the President colluded with a foreign power to rig the latest presidential election. This is being held up as the most important news of the day. While, at the same time and totally ignored, it has been discovered that there was "incidental" surveillance of the Trump campaign by the previous administration and subsequent dispersal of that illegally obtained information throughout domestic and foreign intelligence agencies at the direction of the former president. These are crimes, felonies, indictable under federal law. There is now an open admission of this surveillance and dispersal of illegally obtained and disseminated information by the previous administration by Evelyn Farkas, Deputy Secretary of Defense, on the Morning Joe show on MSNBC aired in early March. Her arrest and waterboarding should be imminent.

All of this begs the question: What laws will you openly disobey?

We are being shown, by political leaders across the nation, heads of their state, that it is perfectly acceptable to refuse to obey laws with which one disagrees. It is a showdown that will either result in the arrest and trial for treason of these leaders, or it will signal to everyone that this is perfectly reasonable behavior to pick and choose which federal laws will be obeyed and which can be shrugged off.

Now, I know it doesn't work the same way for us lowly citizens, but isn't that the mark of a failed nation? Where political leaders can flout and violate any law without fear of reprisal? Does this not make us a "banana republic" and therefore subject to open rebellion? It is when the people are oppressed by unjust laws, wrongly imprisoned for crimes only selectively prosecuted that open rebellion is justified. That is a founding principle of this nation, supported and encouraged by those same founders.

Let us start in the towns and cities and disregard the National Firearms Act, trample and run amok in the National Forests and National Parks across the West. If they will not arrest these few, how can they arrest the many? Is it not, then, a reasonable defense to declare inequality before the law? But, who will go to jail first? That is the real question is it not? Are we not capable of raising funds for a legal defense fund for just such willing participants? Do we not have the legal resources equal to that of a city or a state that declare their willingness to take these issues to trial?

Where do we decide to put up a resistance? It is going to cost some of us our lives. Is that not yet clear? I don't know what bail is for ripping up National Park Service tickets for trespassing, or rule violations, but is it that onerous? Do they put you in Park Jail? Are you held along with criminal cows, who have eaten of the sacred federal grass?

If there be lawlessness, what reason do any of us have for obedience?

Soviet Sytem, Or Not?

I was going to reply to a comment in the previous post by Anonymous Ray, who accused me of "milking the conservative sheep" to which I took great exception. Lies of Omission is not about me, for me, or us. We might be doing all of the hands-on work of making a film, which includes a lot of late nights, a lot of coordination and equipment to be rented or purchased, etc., but this film is something much different than he can imagine in his limited "everyone's corrupt" mentality. So be it, but his comment did highlight something else that I thought deserved a response.

Ray's claim was that the U.S. Government has always been corrupt and that I am just starting to figure that out. Well, not really. When I look at the issue of government corruption, it doesn't matter to me how long it has been corrupt, or whether it was founded on a document that primarily served the purposes of the rich and powerful. What some people never take into account is that at the time of the Revolution most people were living a wealthy lifestyle, much like they are even today. Wealth cannot accurately be estimated from a rich nation, because "corrupt" or not we are all living lives of  opulence of which is only found in the West. Go to Africa, the Middle East, North Korea, much of China and you find destitution on a scale unimaginable even from a lower-middle class standard.

But, that is sort of a side-issue. It does not matter how long the U.S. Government has been corrupt, it only matters how long I have had to endure its corruption. It is not my duty to go back in time and fix it from the founding. It is my duty to try and fix it where I find it is corrupt. It is under my watch that it transformed from a relatively free state to a surveillance, Soviet-style state. That is what I have spent the past 30 years, since the passage of the seat belt law in Colorado, trying to fix.

I have come to understand that I am not enough, that thousands of me (and there are) is not enough, that millions of me might not be enough. Those who have wrecked our country have wrecked our economy, too. Our wealth has prevented us from taking oversight seriously. We have lived lives largely oblivious of the machinations of government behind the scenes. Some of us have been able to raise families, accumulate wealth and retire to play golf all without ever having to consider the economy or government malfeasance. That is true wealth, to be free from the intrusion of corruption.

All I am pointing out is that the wealth of this nation has been squandered, the government is corrupt and it is all about to cause you and me a lot of problems, problems that cannot be glossed over by a new golf club, or a trip to the city for a ball game. To look backward and say: "it was always thus," is ridiculous, because it was not always thus. It might have always been working its way toward this point, but it was not always AT this point and it is now.

The film is just a way to convince those working through the rubble that when they establish order, there was a means of producing wealth and freedom that should be given a chance to work again, perhaps with some stringent punishment for violation of the rules BY government officials, instead of focusing all of the punishments on the people. Maybe that little tweak will help.

What I do know about political systems is it doesn't matter whether one starts with perfection or a slightly flawed good idea, Man will corrupt it until it becomes something easily manipulated by the smallest number of individuals. Whether that is through the dominance of corporations and their ability to buy off representatives of the people to do their bidding at the expense of those supposedly represented, or whether government grows to a point of being able to partner with those corporations in order to reap the benefits without the investment. Corruption is a normal process, but it is us, the scattered masses that either tolerate it, or not. Who let is pass or stop it and start the process over again at the beginning. This is why Jefferson said: "the tree of liberty must once in a while be visited by the blood of patriots and tyrants." It is a continual process of revolution that secures liberty. A reset is required and more often than it has been utilized to this point. More than likely the last time it should have been exercised is at the turn of the 20th Century.

One thing that cannot be ignored much longer, is it is time again. We have let it go too long and it has only gotten worse. So when this economy collapses, we will fight and die and pursue a different system. Will that be a Soviet system, like we have now, or will we look into our past and give representative government another shot? This time with some lessons learned and more vigilant execution of public officials? We'll see.

Russian Roulette

I spent some time today on the Southern Sense radio show and discussed Lies of Omission, but more importantly, we discussed the issues of the day. I can only be a marketing whore for so many hours in a day, then I revert back to the fact that we did this film for a reason, several reasons, but they all come back to one thing: the government is operating outside of legitimacy and is likely to do whatever is expedient for them. It is a government turned on the very people who sustain it, because we no longer sustain it. They have spent themselves into a debt outside of the American people.

One might frame the issue any way they choose, but it is consistent on one issue, the government is broken and flailing with both arms (Republican and Democrat) at their own shadow, against the evil they have fostered, that is inevitable whenever a government functions with no oversight, with no accountability, with no discipline. The very idea of high-level government officials going to jail is not even considered despite the open, obvious and brazen crimes committed as a matter of "doing business." We nearly elected a candidate for President of the United States under active FBI investigation for, in effect, selling state secrets to fund her campaign and half the country still clings to that candidate as a savior and a blessing.

The dead and rotting corpse of the United States of America is stinking up the public square and people continue to walk by, look the other way and pretend there are no consequences for ignoring it. The only remedy is some very strong antiseptic and vigorous elbow grease. The only question is "When?" It is clear that indictments need to start arriving on the doorsteps of senior Obama officials over any number of scandals, starting with Fast and Furious. Of course, the second Clinton Administration was supposed to cover up all of Obama's dirty deals and appoint a new AG that would forever keep the details of Fast and Furious and numerous other scandals secret until the public no longer cared.

So, maybe we have been a banana republic for some time now, but it has never been so obvious and incontestable. Never has there been such proof of government corruption and outright lawlessness (except perhaps in the days of the Kennedy assassination). One step further, without some sort of decisive move to hold the previous administration accountable and all bets are off. Perhaps it is just a free-for-all at that level already, but Trump will never get away with it, the press is not on his side. They will take him down and pin everything on him if he does not act and act swiftly and decisively to bring senior administration officials under investigation.

We are witness to a time in American history when the Director of the FBI and his deputy have come before congress and lied. No matter how they couch it in technicalities, they swore they would know if there was surveillance on the President-elect, his transition team or any other administration officials and they said there was no evidence of such surveillance. No tapping of Trump tower. Meanwhile, Obama is signing an Executive Order releasing that intelligence to not only every US Government intelligence agency, but some foreign intelligence agencies as well.

I grew up in the era of Watergate and watched it all on TV one summer and thought, well, this proves that our government will not tolerate corruption. Ha! Well, what I didn't realize is that it only proved that when a Republican is president corruption will not be tolerated. Now is the time to prove that it works for Democrats as well. Failure to do so is to condemn this nation to chaos. I have felt many times that we, as a nation, were at a breaking point, Ruby Ridge, Waco, Oklahoma City, the corruption and Machiavellian methods used to pass Obamacare, Fast and Furious and nothing, no reaction, looking away, pretending that there are no stakes to this game of Russian Roulette. Yet, deep in my gut, I know that one of these times there is going to be a round in the chamber and this nation is going to get splattered against the wall. So, you want to know why I am not out in the streets, there ya go. I would have been there at every instance, but after getting sold out enough times, I learned to look back once in a while to see if any of those chanting for someone to do something were still there and have always been disappointed. So, I will follow, but I will not lead.

Lies of Omission: Update

We are quickly approaching a time when the fa├žade can no longer be maintained. I don't know how it has held up as long as it has. The very idea that judges, black-robed Marxists, can reject a perfectly Constitutional action of the president, an explicit duty of the president, is not just a shame, or an abuse, it is the spear-in-the-ground type of challenge. It is a call-out, a challenge to the very legitimacy of the Constitution. \

While I have felt this way any number of times in the past, it is much more pronounced now that Trump is the President. I was never very sure about Trump, but I will tell you one thing, this guy brings out the worst in the leftists, he makes them absolutely drop the pretense of sanity. Nothing warms the heart like that. Now, I'm still not sure where Trump reveals the worst he has, but in his budget he defunds PBS, the National Endowment for the Arts and Humanities. Okay, he probably did that as a warning shot to the Marxists, let them fight for those things and give him other things. I know how the game is played, but do you have any idea how many brown underpants were created by that budget proposal?

Keep in mind, these are the people who make it necessary for me to come with my hat in my hand and beg for money to finish our film. I looked at those websites and our film didn't even have a category, much less a chance for funding. But, y'all can be proud of the fact that we are going to pull this film off and it is going to be something that will get some tongues wagging. There are things in there that sounded a little "conspiratorial" at one time, but now have been proven accurate and it is a warning that rings that much more pertinent.

I wanted to announce to those who have been visiting her site for a while, that we have contacted and enlisted the help of Kit Perez of The Order of the White Rose and the Patrick Henry Society to the effort. We will be doing her interview shortly. Currently we are at 42% of the goal on our latest fundraiser for Lies of Omission  and are close to finalizing the film's contents as soon as we get Kit's interview "in the can." But, that sort of raises another issue. I went through the film and compiled a "shot list" that we need in order to make this a truly stunning film. I came up with about 70 pieces of B-roll.

Since so many of the readers of this blog and Western Rifle Shooters Association have funded this effort, I feel I can discuss some of the finances with you all. To date, we have raised about $50,000 for this film; most of that from ourselves and the rest from all of you. No one other than the principles have donated more than $1000, which I take to mean a lot. It means a lot of people have helped out with what they could. Which, no matter how much it is, is dear to the people who have donated it.

But, and you knew that was coming, those 70 pieces of B-roll come at a dear price. They are shots we can't get by ourselves, they are either historical or owned by others. When you put them into a "commercial" documentary they want a mint for each one. A picture of Michael Isikoff goes for between $170 to $250. One lousy picture of someone I don't even care for. And, we might get by without that, but you have to be extremely careful when you put these things into a documentary. You will spend the next six years in court, if you aren't sure of who owns it and that they have been paid to use it. Shutterstock wanted $2300 for 30 clips of video.

So, here we are with an outstanding film that can go either way. It can be a film interesting to those who already hold these views, or it can be a stunning film that will get a lot of interest, even from groups who disagree with us. For instance, I watched a documentary called "Shadow of Liberty" that was filmed by the folks from "Democracy Now!" a highly leftists program. But it was beautifully shot, even if they did use the same B-roll over too many times, it was remarkable and artistic and I watched the whole thing. I didn't agree with their conclusions or their solution to the problem of a corrupt media, which they blamed on capitalism and their solution was for the news to be government funded, but as far as photography and cinematography, it was outstanding. That's what this film needs to be to make any real headway.

So, once again, with hat in hand, a thing I never have or would do for myself, I ask for one last push. I have done a few radio programs and that has helped to raise a few funds, but I would have to be on the radio every day to get where we need to be. Unless of course, Hannity or someone put me on. I am looking to finish off this campaign and maybe get 100% of the goal, which would pay for the B-roll and fund some initial PR and advertising. All of these things I have arranged for, but cannot give the go-ahead on until we can pay for it.

We are going to do a few more things on this campaign. I already uploaded a picture of the T-shirt available (be sure to note your size) and I will put up Matt Bracken's book Enemies Foreign and Domestic and Claire Wolfe's Rebelfire: Into The Gray Zone, but those are limited.

The war is underway and I am hoping this film will help us recruit some reinforcements. I know it can do it. I have watched a lot of documentaries looking for what works and what doesn't and we are fortunate to have such engaging personalities to speak for all of us to the next generation. It comes at a great time. It is possible that they will re-open the Fast and Furious investigation, the media is imploding and shedding believers everyday. Thanks Rachel Maddow! The time is right, the people are right, the message is right, the only thing left is to finish it and we need B-roll to do that.

This might be one too many times to the well, but I look at the price of the things we need and we don't have quite enough to pull it off, not in the way it needs to be done. Do what you can and know that our gratitude is immense for all of you who have brought us this far. LIES OF OMISSION. I even had to get a Facebook account to get a hold of Brian Terry's brother for pictures. God help me.

Waiting and Prepared

The Vault 7 release by WikiLeaks shows us that everything we knew was possible and feared was true, was true. That all of those accusations of the "extreme right-wing conspiracy theorists" were nothing but cover for the real bad actors in the government. But then, it was Obama's government for which they were covering up. Now that Trump is in office, the Marxists envision the same tools they were happy to have in the hands of one of their own, now in the hands of an enemy and the incredible power of destruction that represents.

Vault 7 reveals a nation wholly unloosed from its founding, not just on the corners, or around the edges, but its whole purpose now is to control, monitor and dominate a population. Only a strident Soviet could appreciate the system we have today. They had to do the hard work of manually tapping phones with wires and listening with headsets. The Soviets couldn't record everything said and file it away for when someone's name popped up on their radar screen, so they could go back, dig through their conversations until they came up with an actionable admission and prosecute with their previously accumulated evidence.

But, we are the United States! No, we are not. Not anymore. We are the Soviet States. Now, a lot of people will have no problem with that. They have been raised in Soviet America, with Soviet parents, educated in Soviet schools, but for the rest of us, it makes the blood boil. The thought that two planes could hit two buildings in New York City and destroy our nation seemed insane, but they did it, or rather, we did it to ourselves. We tore down any semblance of the United States when we allowed the passage of the Patriot Act.

I'm not saying that it was not well on the way already, or that without that event, we would not be in the same exact position as we are now, but the Patriot Act was the moment of surrender. It was when the cards were on the table and the people folded; gave up the pretense of Americanism. We all knew it then, but it was accepted, tolerated and that proved to the Marxists that it was time to go full-steam ahead.

We have been led along this path, brought to Marxism gently, step by step, but now the whole beast is visible. Of course, I don't expect anything to come of it, we are settled now in our Marxism. References to the Constitution have been almost laughable for a long time, at least since the Patriot Act was passed. As a Constitutionalist, that is difficult for me to admit, because I still believe in the ideals espoused within, but there is no interest in enforcing those ideals. Because the only way to enforce them now is with a rope and a lamppost.

Individually, of course, we might still cling to the law. We might practice individual liberty and make the courts rule unconstitutionally in order to convict us of some trumped up charge or other, but as an effective defense it lacks the power of the state. It is just a talking point, not for serious consideration.

If I had my way, ten million people would descend on Washington D.C. on April 15th and just loot the place, gut every federal office building and drag anyone with a title out into the streets. They don't represent us, they have violated their oaths and they have subjugated and imprisoned the population. A prisoner in a federal penitentiary has more privacy than we do walking the streets of America. But, the most dispiriting aspect of that notion is that no one will do it. We are not that upset. We console ourselves that some worse thing has not happened yet, for which we are waiting and prepared.

This is not America, this is something else. While any number of people might have said that happened a long time ago, well, it did. I know as well as anyone how long this has ceased to be what it was designed to be, or at least advertised to be. At least now, it is unavoidable to recognize it.

Even If Alone

This is where I am going to get sideways with a couple of folks, some of my favorite folks, but I don't write this blog to make friends. I write it because I think there are some things to be said. So, here we go.

I am not interested in the general protesting sort of stuff, but I do believe in showing a presence, in putting out a signal of what is to come if things continue toward Marxism. I have been to a lot of Tea Party things, but almost always as a defender of the people doing the protesting. I recall one event in Denver and I was watching for aggression against the Tea Party gathered there. I don't believe in signs and all of that, but as a show of force, I do. So, some union thug had cornered a black Tea Party guy and was giving him the liberal line on why a black man should be in the Tea Party. This union thug was big and had done some enforcing before, he had the marks, so I intervened and his friends, seeing how this was going to go with someone who could and would fight back, dragged him away before the cameras caught his Marxist nature.

Despite the fact that one must go "full retard" as it is called in the piece, there are some very good suggestions for those who feel the same way I do. I am always willing to engage the Marxists, wherever they present themselves. I don't know how to explain to people that we are engaged in a WAR that should be fought by our police and our military, but if one has not been paying attention, they are not or will not ever be on our side of things. They have already bought into the power of the Deep State. They are the Deep State.

Here's the fact, if you are not willing to go out and put yourself between the Marxist thugs in black and do battle in the streets to protect those pro-Trumpers out there, I just don't get it. We cannot always take a defensive position. The war will not be settled anywhere, but in the streets. The Tea Party, for all of the degradation it receives, changed the last three elections. It may not have changed the stripes on the tiger, but it changed the tigers, it changed Democrat house seats to Republican and it revealed the extent to which the Republicans were just Democrats with better talking points. It changed A LOT. I say this, having distanced myself from them for a long time, and not out of admiration, but to say that it changed nothing is unadulterated nonsense. At least as much as could be changed politically. It also taught a lot of us that it had no ability to actually change anything, except letters associated with some politicians. Okay, lesson learned, I moved on to people I thought understood the battlefield and would be willing to engage the enemy.

Perhaps I was wrong.

I guess, if one considers themselves a "general" then there is no reason to go out into the streets and stop the Marxists from "punching a Nazi" which, if you haven't been paying attention, is anyone not a Marxist piece of garbage. But, if you are a "soldier" and consider yourself a "bullet-catcher" the way I do, then it is perfectly reasonable to get out there, get a little bloody, go to jail for the night, but do not cede the streets your mothers, wives and daughters walk to those thugs. It is someone's mom out there doing what she thinks is politically relevant. It doesn't matter if she is wrong, or right, but not to stand between her and the Marxists so she can have her say is wrong, dead wrong and to some extent cowardly.

I understand the "local, local, local" mindset and that is all well and good, but if the Marxists are shoving people around in your AO and you think it is none of your business, that's where we part ways. I'm not saying one should drive cross country, but an hour or two from you is your AO. Let me spell it out for you. The mobs coming into your direct AO are going to form in the cities and by taking the head-in-the-sand posture, you are only letting them gain power, influence and funding with which to do it. In my opinion, they should be engaged anywhere they raise their ugly scalps. I have driven hours and hours to be there when I thought they would show up, just to be there, just to stand between the pro-Trumpers and these thugs. That is my duty. If it isn't yours, fine. I will not judge, but neither will I tolerate being called a Retard, because I recognize my duty and am fully willing and determined to do it. Even if I am alone.

This is, to me, the crucial difference between us and them. They go out to bust people in the mouth, we are the defenders, the protectors of our people, or at least the defenders of liberty, other people's liberty, not just ours. And, we don't have to agree with them to defend them. The ugliness represented by these Marxists is what I am wholly against, in every form and if I am not willing to oppose it at great personal risk, then I don't really care about it at all. I might as well just sit in my little hole and wait for the knock, so I can shoot through the door. But, that is not me.
