We are the new media, bloggers, news aggregators (like Drudge), columnists, etc. We have seen David Codrea and Mike Vanderboegh break one of the biggest scandals in American history, a devastating scandal that would have brought down any lesser-protected president than Barack Obama. Nationally known alternative media (Info Wars, The Blaze, etc) are capable of reaching millions and millions of like-minded citizens and bringing information and inspiration to the masses.
Through years of defamation by the major media outlets, the militias have survived to now present a positive image to patriots across the land as a result of their actions in the Bundy Ranch affair. Though, it was also the actions of those citizens who rallied to the cause, willing to stand their ground and put up a fight that led to, at least, a moral victory.
The most important aspect to victory is a person on whose behalf these weapons can be deployed. That is vital. If these resources are brought to bear only to have the victim go queasy and give in to government extortion, it demoralizes the troops and damages the effort, causing those who would support it see it as a useless sacrifice of their time resources. With Bundy, the operation worked because he and his family had the backbone to stand behind those who came to his aid and demand the appropriate concessions from the government.
But, all of this depends on communication, even when the particular government agency blocks normal modes such as the Internet, phone service and even electric power.
As the Cold War turns hot these are some important issues to keep in mind. Developing the avenues of communication and distribution are key. Being trained in tactics, supporting militias, supporting average citizens engaged in the action are important. Intelligence info from the front is something that needs to be better worked out.
The trouble with communication is that the federal government is in control of it, or can exert its influence over it. We have seen this in the way the Obama Administration has kept the Bundy Ranch affair out of the major news networks, how they dictate the message they want to get out through the major media outlets. This is a less and less important factor as the major media is suffering a debilitating credibility deficit. But, that only exposes the fact that there, right now, is no effective means of getting news from the front lines to the broader public with confidence in the quality and integrity of that message.
Perhaps, I just don't know about it. My question to the militia organizations out there is: Is there a way to use radio to radio communication back to a viable outlet to supporters around the nation? I realize that any attempt to arrive at common portal only makes it easy for the feds to focus on it. These are logistical issues that need some attention.
The war is hot. We need to start (should have a long time ago) get these resources in place and in use. I would love to work on this project with whomever might be interested, or at least point me in the right direction.
Bundy is not the only Bundy out there. This will come into play in Connecticut, in Utah, in Colorado, in Texas anywhere any government agency acting against the Constitution, using tyrannical and deadly force against citizens seeking to exert their God-given rights is present. Retribution for those actions should cause more mobilization, we have to be able to manage it.
In this war of restoration of these rights all are participants, either in support or in opposition. Getting our act together is a duty I take seriously.
I am at your disposal.
