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.

Sometimes, You Have To Fight

We are at war. Just because there are not fire fights in the streets does not mean that a war is not raging all around us. This is a cultural war, a globalist vs nationalist conflict, but the resistance to that depiction does not change a single thing. Many do not want to be labeled "nationalist" and they don't believe "globalist" is the right term either. But, like any math problem, the terms need to be defined down to their essence and then the problem can be worked. It is this lack of distillation that has kept everyone in their respective corners for so long.

I would describe myself as an individualist. I claim the territory of myself and willingly suffer the consequences of my actions, enough to turn myself in, even. I believe in personal responsibility. I undertake nothing that I have not figured the consequences into the equation. Now, I suspect that speaks for a lot of us, but it is not an ideology; principled perhaps, but not actionable. The whole idea is to be left alone and for that sort of society to work, the vast majority of the people would have to subscribe to it and no greater crime could be committed than to evade capture or lie to avoid the punishment for one's actions. But, in this war, that makes me a sucker, a victim, a fool, because the enemy believes in none of this. This is what makes it a war, because one culture cannot survive in the presence of the other, like matter and anti-matter. Oceans are good for keeping them separate.

A lot of attention is now given to the threat from Islam and many European nations are suffering from the lack of ocean separateness, but that is not the primary threat to our culture, that is coming from the Marxists in our institutions. It is the long war that has now co-opted Islam and globalism into the fight. The foe remains totalitarianism, but labeling it globalism is easier to identify, especially when placed in proximity to nationalism. So, neither definition is accurate, but it never is. It is the weakness of the individualist that they are often intransigent and will not fight until their boar is gored. Sometimes, you just have to fight the evil for whatever reason you can devise.

The challenge is to overcome decency to defend decency. The Constitution worked for about six weeks, until everyone started trying to get what they thought they were going to get out of it. The Supreme Court took upon itself the right to "define" it. No one had claimed that territory and so they did, to give them purpose. Now, there is no need for a Constitutional Amendment when the courts can rule what is and is not permissible. It undermines the entire Constitution. It allows for the government to make rules for itself, thereby destroying the whole concept of the Constitution as written. The government, what people call "the deep state," the bureaucracy, the government service level, who do not leave when a new president is elected, or a new congress seated, or a new Supreme Court seated, are actively working against any control the people might have to limit its power or protect their rights. They are on the side of the globalists, whether they consider themselves as such, or not.

This is the danger of a large federal government and why the Constitution was written to leave most powers with the states, excepting international powers to make treaties with other nations, which is why dealing with the Indian nations were included in their power and not the states.

This is a declaration of war and it started the minute an unruly, uncompromised man was elected president, before the inauguration, when it became apparent that he might restrain government power and relinquish some of it to the people. Now, who knows how long this illusion will last? How long before they find a way to co-opt him? But, this is a war, they have moved against their enemy and all that is left is for the nationalists, or whatever, to decide to fight back. Maybe a few more boars will have to get gored, first, but that does not change the fact that the war has begun, it only determines when it will be engaged.

Barack Obama and his shadow government might attempt a coup, nothing would be better than that, because the danger is that there is no unified understanding of when to respond and so all of the individualists wander about waiting for their moment, when they understand the conflict and know who to engage to counter it.

The one thing that is not generally discussed however is: what comes next? The Constitution has been a failure and maybe it took a while to recognize that fact, but there it is. The question actually comes down to what would one fight for, recognizing that putting the genie back in the bottle is not going to happen. Any Constitutional convention now would not look anything like the one in 1787. It would be a rabble, a mob, with protests in the streets and SJW's flocking the corridors. It would start the next revolution. In that sense, I might encourage it. That might make one think that I want a war, with all of the horrors turned to glory, but I assure you that is not the case. The undeniable fact is that war has begun. That will not change if I sit home on my couch, it will just make it that much easier for my enemies to win. So, yes, it is time to engage the enemy, because they have been engaging us for a hundred years.

The Story No One Else Will Tell

This nation is at a crossroads. There are many indications that there is a significant push by Marxists to step out of the shadows and claim title to our institutions, pushing the idea of capitalism out of the public square the same way they pushed God out of the schools. Swirling in the air of social media is the idea that to resist capitalism is to resist all of the ills of society, as if capitalism caused them. Unfortunately, this shows a determined lack of intelligence, reinforced by Marxist professors.

Here's what I know: no one is telling the story, no one is standing up for the America we should have. Republicans use the Constitution to get elected to continue the Ponzi scheme of government programs. Democrats want to replace the electorate in order to get the election results they want to in turn continue the Ponzi scheme of government programs. None of them will ever have a reason to look backward at individual freedom as anything other than a threat to their power.

We elected Donald Trump, because he was neither of them and we all knew that. The protests against him are just temper tantrums by minorities (numerical, not racial) who are accustomed to dictating to the rest of the populace how to act, what to think and what to say through judicial fiat. Trump threatens their hegemony and he must be put down. They are guided, encouraged and sometimes hired by the Marxists, who want it all.

Who is fighting for America and Americans? We are, we have no other dog in the fight. We don't serve a political party, we don't owe allegiance to any PAC, or organization, we don't even have any "big investor" to manipulate our message. We have you and you have us.

Lies of Omission is more than just a film. It is more than just some entertainment. It is the start of a weapon against the lies and deceit of both political parties, the media and the universities. Now that Barack Obama is out of office and it is acceptable to distrust government again, Lies of Omission and 12 Round Productions have a chance to reach thousands of misinformed, ill-informed and misled citizens of the nation with a different message, one of righteous suspicion; of skeptical disbelief in the way government is dispensed.

I cannot express how critical this film could be. Having now edited the substance of it and allowing for the talent to make it beautiful, I can say without equivocation that it is turning out to be everything I hoped it would. It is the type of film that gets into ones head, where quotes come back time and time again to reaffirm certain truths. The power of this film is that it can do the work of any number of books one might read. Because the people who appear in it, who have a dedication to freedom, who have spent their lives in this struggle, know how to communicate complex ideas and present them with clarity.

If we stand a chance to change the discussion, to invigorate the passion for freedom, to enlist others to our cause, it starts with this film.

We, despite the generosity of our supporters, many of them readers of this and other blogs and despite the thrift of our expenditures, are still a little shy of the goal. We need to budget for creation of the DVD, shipping and we need to advertise to get the word out to get the widest possible audience. We will be applying to several film festivals and trying desperately to obtain a distribution deal, but we have to plan to do most of this ourselves. If so, that is much more expensive. So, I would ask a few things: If you have an "in" with a radio show, or local paper, anything where we might be able to present Lies of Omission to raise awareness and demand we would be happy to have a representative give an interview. Media requests can be sent to tld@tldavis.com We are in the final leg of this project, where things like this matter.

Already, we have dates March 2nd for the Andrea Shea King Show and March 7th for The Hagmann Report, but momentum is important.

The film is still scheduled to be out in June and that is coming quicker than it seems.

Thank you all for all you have done and please understand that we recognize none of this would have been possible without everyone's help. It makes me proud to be a part of this community.

The Only Option

We walk through this world as if the past hundred years have not happened, that there is some semblance of the world we used to revere. Over that hundred years we have been exposed to the horrors of globalism. Except now the globalism isn't the idea of one nation conquering the entire globe, but a few powerful people in any number of nations that can sell the masses on their vision. Many of whom are complicit in the idea that control is better than freedom, that looting the treasuries for them and theirs is perfectly reasonable. They have come softly, as Gramsci instructed, the worst of humanity has seeped into everything that made the world decent. They perverted it. Now, as that same horror expresses itself in the streets of California and Missouri, we wonder how long we will be allowed to watch, without taking part, one way or another.

It still doesn't matter, because they are waging war on us from every nook and cranny of society. It has been allowed to grow and now we see how far.

The take down of Michael Flynn was a shot across the bow. It was the leviathan raising its ugly head above the surface. This was the integral cooperation between the media and the deep state. There is no point in drawing lines between Republican/Democrat, even Conservative and Liberal, just erase those lines, they no longer matter. There are those who seek your death and those who might benefit from your life. Unfortunately, those who seek your death massively outnumber those who might benefit from your life.

When one starts to count up the bodies attributable to the deep state, it looks more and more like the first few moments of the Bolshevik Revolution. The apparatchiks are the only ones who really understand the battlefield, because the elected officials are transient and will not last. What the deep state cannot accomplish with rules and regulations, they accomplish through federal storm troopers. Any lousy warrant is good enough to start a Waco. It is a death cult, like all globalist endeavors.

These riots that periodically arise are stage plays, acted out by fools, dupes or paid insurrectionists. They are merely evidence of the machine working. It is easy to divorce oneself from the conflict by imagining that there is some grievance that might be resolved, but there isn't. Only the deaths of those who remember freedom will suffice. The average Joes among them might even believe that it is better to establish order, or structure than to tolerate the risk of freedom. Look how effective that notion has been over the past several decades. The intent is not to save our lives, but to delegitimize freedom.

Forget all of the old political prejudices, there are only two sides now in this global struggle, those who would kill you for your disobedience and those who would kill to disobey. It may not have come to a struggle, yet. There is no open warfare, but the war has been ongoing for a century and they have been winning, because they come through our institutions. There is no way to reverse it, it is too pervasive. The only option is to confront it.

When This Gets Ugly

Several interesting interactions over the past couple of days have led me to put forth this post. When one looks out over the past several years, even decades, some of the wildest things I have written about have come true and even gone farther than I suggested they would. Now, I have no special insight, or abilities, but what I do have is an interest in the truth and when that is ones motivation, they learn how to discern it from everyone they meet.

I have been fortunate to have interacted with folks who could see further down the line than I can and, yes, I have doubted them at first and let the truth reveal itself as time goes on, because someone who is willing to wait for the information to surface, when those holding it down sense the lapse of interest allows them to release it, the seeker will ultimately find it. Over time, a pattern develops that repeats again and again. The trouble is, by the time one develops this sense of discernment, they are often past the age where they can influence the next generation.

The following generations, if they care about the truth at all, are forced to follow the same method of discernment. If they don't follow this method, they are often revealed as gullible and quickly discredited or co-opted to serve as an agent of disinformation. This gives the forces hiding the truth plenty of time to work on new egregious acts. This is how society devolves into the soup we have now. My work on LIES OF OMISSION is an attempt to leap over that divide, to bridge the gap.

We are headed for a reckoning that is unavoidable at this point. The forces of globalist Marxism have made up too much ground to be denied now. The Nationalists are defensive and passive, still waiting to get the "go ahead" from someone, they aren't even sure who that "someone" is or should be. But, history teaches that there will be some act too egregious, too inflammatory to be ignored and that will be the trigger. Maybe it is when they stop burning down their own institutions and come after ours, I don't know, but it is bound to happen.

We are in a race right now to get this film done and out and into the hands of people who will be able to use it protect their nation, however one frames "their nation," whether that is a family, a tribe or a larger group. But, to be able to reach out to the younger generation with a tool designed to prove the credibility of the speakers, to embrace the principles that have allowed us all to be armed and ready for the coming conflict, is invaluable. The war has already started, it started a long time ago, but it will turn hot and recruits are important, intelligent recruits invaluable. They will be forced to choose a side, but right now they don't even know they have a side or how that is defined. They are playing basketball, thinking they are going to get a scholarship. They don't know they are about to get drafted by one side or another when this gets ugly.

Motel 8

While editing the footage for Lies of Omission, I have been privy to many very salient points and points of view, from Mike Vanderboegh, Matt Bracken, David Codrea, Claire Wolfe and Larry Pratt. There is a wealth of information and discussed in concise (after the edit) and understandable ways. This will be a film of immense value and one that I am even anxious to see in its fully edited form.

Because many of these people are only known to the public by particular stances, or stands they have taken, their depth of understanding of particular issues important to the readers of this blog and others like it, are immeasurable. I watch and wonder how many times I have said, or thought the exact same things? But to compile all of this into a 90 min film is an education.

I believe that this is a film that will differentiate one level of understanding from another, that there is before this film and after this film in one's comprehension of the forces and obstacles we face in the enduring struggle for freedom. Even being present at the filming of these interviews does not offer one a true perspective on what is being said and the value that it might have on all of us who struggle for some way to communicate our point of view to our friends and children.

I am here in the belly of the beast editing what is a wholly subversive film to the radicals in the government of every political party. The truth that shines through with almost every participant is the rejection of party politics, of even thinking in a Democrat/Republican paradigm. I am proud and honored to have been able to be a part of this and I know that those who have helped to fund it and continue to support it will be very proud and pleased to have it in their video library, or perhaps on their coffee table, like bait for their liberal friends and relatives.

Where I am most honored is to be in possession of Mike's interview. It is an honor and a responsibility that I take very seriously. I have just taken a short break from constant editing at the Motel 8 to let all those who have contributed to this effort that it is going along fine and you will be happy to have participated.

By Force, By Us

The riots in Berkeley were described as "peaceful" until about 150 masked anarchists arrived and began to commence violence. That is the "fake news" lie being pushed on the American public. The riot was planned and attended by protesters until their violent wing could arrive, it was not a coincidence and it was not organic. These are not even riots, they are para-military movements, they are anti-government terrorist acts.

There is a vast difference between protesting the illegal and unconstitutional acts of your government and rioting to shut down free speech. What few genuine protesters were in the crowds, either the Women's March or Berkeley, are misguided and should be ashamed of what happened to their "peaceful" protest, but largely they are not ashamed and feel justified in their hatred for America and Americans with different views. I heard none of the "peaceful" protesters coming out today to denounce the actions of the anarchists.

There is no correlation to the Tea Party, who were constantly described as "anti-government" which always seemed a bit odd since most of them were carrying copies of the Constitution in their pockets, whereas these rioters hate the Constitution, hate free speech, hate free assembly, hate the Second Amendment. Some of them just hate for the sake of it and riot for the thrill of unbridled violence.

This is a little of what I was writing about in the pervious post. There must be a counter to these acts of violence to protect the people who would have otherwise attended the speech. Yeah, I know, so what am I doing about it? Well, nothing, so far. I recognize that there needs to be an interdiction, an engagement with these punks. There needs to be a rapid deployment of supporters to flood the area and stand between these rioters and the venue.

The trouble I have is this is mostly taking place in liberal zones that I would just as soon watch burn to the ground. I am right now in the middle-ground between watching to see how bad all of this hurts the left and whether pushing to have federal funds removed from sanctuary cities, public universities and such will have the impact that it should. I guess, in other words, it is the government's role to defend itself and its laws. How will the federal government react to this illegality? But, I also know that there is something beyond what the federal government will do and what I am willing to do.

One must also understand that Milo is doing this on purpose. His college-tour is to expose the violent intolerance of the left. It is, to some extent, a PR stunt. Again, letting this play out a little is probably the wiser move, but I am not willing to sit back and watch innocent people harmed because of their belief in this nation, because it is more than that. It is a resistance to the forces of globalism who have planned this strategy of constant riots (I will not dignify them with the pretense of a protest).

My point is simply that at some point it will come down to what we are willing to do to defend the society that has led us to the prosperity and strength that we have enjoyed over the past couple of hundred years. It is a defense of Christianity against Islamism. It is a defense of freedom against collectivism. It is a defense of liberty against imprisonment. This nation is coming apart, because the Republicans in the House and Senate were too weak and too traitorous to defend the Constitution when it needed to be defended. Now, it is nothing more than an expression of natural law, without the ability to enforce it. That will have to happen by force, probably by us.

The Great Social Earthquake

For those who have not understood the events over the past few days, who do not understand why radicalized liberal women would team up with Islamists, the answer is: we are in a cold civil war and you now see the enemy and they see you. Just like putting on uniforms, the sides have been identified. The Women's March was really a demonstration of cooperation, led by Muslims to show how far they have gone in co-opting the liberal agenda and the dedication of their allies.

There are only two sides in this fight, the nationalists who believe in America and the principles on which it was founded, regardless of any document and the globalists, who have mobilized the Jihadists and their snowflake allies as their front guard. But, this is not only a civil war, but it meshes with a global war to enslave mankind.

There can be no more clear delineation of the sides than the airport protests started by Soros, who is using Islam and Jihadists to help destroy nationalism. One has to discard any other previous political affiliation. Being a Republican does not make one a nationalist, being a Democrat does not make one a globalist. Those terms are not even relevant. This is different, because it is simultaneously a civil war and a global war.

Russia, in this war, is not an enemy. They are not necessarily an ally, either, but if they handle their business and we handle ours, nationalism will win. But, this is the fight we have all felt coming, we just didn't see Trump as our leader, but, as many predicted, (not me) a leader will reveal himself when the time comes. Right now, though, we are not exactly offering our support to Trump. He is alone out there standing up for what he thinks is right while protests rage all around. In 2009, Obama had union labor out there counter-protesting the protests by the Tea Party. While they are not exactly analogous, because the Tea Party was not paid and the counter-protesters were, the sides have just flipped, but the Tea Party is not counter-protesting, but someone needs to.

This is where I usually throw myself to the wolves and go out to stand in front of the protesters and try to antagonize a response. I am holding off on that right now, because I have other people's money placed in my hand to accomplish a recruiting tool for the next generation. This film, Lies of Omission, I think will be a very valuable tool in the hands of Team Freedom, but it bugs me to sit on the sidelines, when I know action is called for and appropriate. I know there will be other opportunities to engage the enemy, so it is not a question of action or inaction, but one of timing. And, it is not an "all or nothing" proposition, either. One might edit a film and act when appropriate, but that is something I would not reveal here at any rate.

What is important is that we see clearly how this is going to happen. It is only a matter of time before a false flag calls down the whirlwind on patriots like us. Listen to Bracken on Alex Jones for a better understanding of how this is inevitable H/T WRSA. We have to be ready to mobilize ourselves. Trump supporters need to get out in the streets and support him and the rest of us need to be ready to support them.

The fight we all saw coming was one where the government would turn against us, but that is not what happened and we need to understand the changing dynamic and recognize our role in this war. It is a war, it is no longer posturing. The globalists have come out strong and while I think the government can handle it for the time being, it is only a matter of time before the Marxists and/or the Jihadists take our caution for cowardice and make a direct assault. This is where police forces are divided, cities, towns and states are divided along hard lines. It is only a matter of time before the great earthquake shakes it all apart. Sally Yates committed nothing other than open treason and it was a bold move that no one in her position would make if not to signal others that this is no drill, it is the real thing. Even though she was a temporary AG, she used her actions to maximum effect.

The opposition is led by Barack Obama and George Soros. They are busy hiring their army and stockpiling arms. The hinted at training camps in the US are theirs. They will sew discontent until they think the time is right to make a direct assault to overthrow the government and install Barack Obama as dictator. I wish is wasn't so easy to imagine. What a coup for Islam that would be.

Steel yourselves.

Thank You

This is just an open Thank You to those who have contributed to Lies of Omission. We will be shutting down the Fundrazr site in a few hours, primarily so we can work on getting perks to the people who have been patient with us on that aspect, so far. Due to a lot of complicated issues I don't know exactly when they will go out as I have to be in LA for the editing during most of February, but solidifying amounts and etc will help us have a plan of attack when I get back.

A lot of people have helped us to make Lies of Omission a successful product. The biggest hurdle still to be cleared is one of distribution. Distributors generally pay to obtain the rights for things they know will sell, but something like this, well, it's the same old story. There aren't that many outlets for a conservative documentary, but we are beating the bushes to see what jumps out at us. None of them are going to give us the time of day until we have been through a few film festivals and come away with positive remarks, at least.

So, a lot of the distribution will have to be done by us through whatever outlet we can find. We are working on a website with a store function to sell them directly. I personally hate YouTube, but few other sites are as well known or visited. Vimeo maybe. Make no mistake as relentless as we have been about funding this film will be mirrored in trying to get it out to the public. Yes, some of this has to do with being able to fully pay those who are working for us, but as much is in trying to get the voices of our interviewees before the public, especially Mike Vanderboegh.

The establishment is corrupt, the only conservative voices loud enough to be heard are the same old voices we have been hearing for decades and they all have the same message "America is what we say it is and all you Patriots out there are nuts." Well, I wholeheartedly disagree with that sentiment. The voices heard on Lies of Omission are not generally paid to speak, they do so, because there is no one saying what we all know to be true. I want Lies of Omission to break through that sound barrier and let our strident voices be heard. Maybe, even kick up a few new controversies to shake the snowflakes out of the belief that they run something in this nation other than their mouths.

Anyway, thanks to all who have helped. Many have come through WRSA and the spirit over there is invaluable to this effort.

With ISIS Flags Waving

The coalition of the American Left and Islam, long-known to those paying attention, was on full display during the Women's March in Washington DC. The insanity of it seems vexing: how could women, the most oppressed and victimized of all people in Islamic nations, support Islam? It boggles the mind. That is, until one realizes what has been taking place. It is a matter of the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

The American Left will side with anyone against Christian Whites, even though many of them are Christian Whites. They think, stupidly, that by getting out in front of the issue of cultural change they will save themselves from the Islamists when the beheadings begin. The truth is, they will probably be first, because the rest of the Christian Whites are armed.

But, it is not limited to Islamists. Democrat leadership wants to destroy and murder Christian Whites. To get up to speed on the topic, if you haven't already, you can go to WRSA and read Matt Bracken's take, or you can go to Grabien News, but I suggest both. In both cases it becomes immediately clear that you, if you are a Christian White, you are the enemy.

This formalizing of hate by the DNC is the fifth or sixth step along the path toward a truly civil war, a war of civics, those against these. Identification is the most crucial step since one must first identify the enemy. Beyond that, there is intelligence on where the enemy is located; where the enemy is vulnerable; when the enemy will be present on favorable ground; the method of attack; the equipment necessary to support the attack; the attack; the escape; the reformation behind friendly lines. Sometimes, like at the Women's March and the Deploraball, many of these questions are quickly answered and the attack is imminent.

The biggest problem the Left has now is that the government is not behind them, at least not the Justice Department. Not long ago I saw a post put out by one of the rioters at the inauguration complaining that he was facing 10 years in prison and a $25k fine. He was blaming the instigators for exposing him to punishment and lamenting how they had carried out numerous actions without facing charges at all. With an AG like Sessions, the weaklings emboldened by Loretta Lynch will fade, but who will replace them on the front lines?

The mistake is to think that there is an amicable end to any of this. The true enemies of this culture will use the idiots to maximum effect, but eventually the real power behind the attacks will have to stand out front, because they have the will to make the change where others are more akin to window dressing, to make it look like a true split between the people rather than an Islamic attack on the West.

We are about to understand the weakness of the police force. It has always been effective where mostly law-abiding citizens were the norm, but it is wholly ineffective when encountering the sort of enemies we have today. Don't expect them to be there when the going gets rough. In every riot situation, the police take a "containment" role, not an interdiction role, but even a containment role is inadequate to address a truly hostile force like we are about to see. The election of Donald Trump may have given our side a few more weapons in the form of a friendly Attorney General (if they will ever confirm Sessions, but that is part of this war, too. The Left's delaying tactics are designed to give cover to their forces).

The problem the cultural preservists have is that they have no identity and no formal mutual defense agreements. They have also distanced themselves from the urban centers where the battles are likely to be fought. Yeah, if they come out to the country the Leftists might have a problem, but as long as they contain their assaults to the cities they will probably have free rein. Success breeds converts and by the time they do decide to move out from the urban centers they will be much stronger and much more organized.

So, as long as we refuse to engage the enemy when they are weak and disorganized and therefore easily defeated, we are just asking for a much more difficult fight. But, we don't even think offensively. We are all waiting for that assault in our AO as a signal to mobilize and I don't have a problem with that. It just is and it is something that will either work, or not. Just knowing you are in a fight and that the enemy is gaining strength and you can mark that strength is part of combat intelligence.

For now, I guess, I am in the role of intelligence gathering and dissemination. This is where we are, this is where it is going and these are the people who are doing it. The one thing that makes this much easier is they have thrown off the disguise and are coming right at us with ISIS flags waving and fake vaginas flapping in the wind.

Monday Morning In America

There are a lot of things to consider today. There are a lot of cross-currents of momentum. The warriors for freedom have been given a day off after fighting back against the Obama Administration's efforts to silence and defame them, to distract them with egregious actions. Okay, so it is Monday in America again and there are things with which to deal. Disrupt J20 was an assault on middle America that elected Donald Trump. Trump is more of a symbol than a man, or a president. We are Trump, whether you agree with the symbol or not, the Disrupt J20 crowd have targeted him as a proxy for us. They do not hate Trump except as he represents us. This is the most important thing to understand.

I did not devote myself to Lies of Omission, because I wanted to do a movie, or I wanted to help my daughter in her film career. In fact, my daughter would rather not do it at all. She has a pretty good career making short films and doing interviews for her church. She freelances doing music videos for bands in the LA music scene. Lies of Omission is as much a favor for her dad than anything I am doing for her. In fact when this project is done she may no longer be involved with 12 Round Productions at all. But, that means we will have to hire and pay someone else to do what she does.

I did devote myself to Lies of Omission, because I understand that we need replacements, reinforcements from the younger generation that is not being taught the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights, Natural Law, Individualism, Capitalism, or even American History in school. They will not get the message of American Freedom without films like Lies of Omission. I know this movement is skeptical and derisive of things they imagine will make someone money. Heaven forbid someone might make a living out of their efforts. And, we have gotten a lot of help, that is not in dispute here, but Lies of Omission is a big thing, a big thing for everyone, all of us. We have asked for your help, because we do not want this to turn into a Freedom Works takeover of the Tea Party. We do not want it to be a NRA production. We have asked for your help, because we want it to be of US and us alone. This is why we have chosen to interview the people we have interviewed, because they are not likely to be selected by the MSM as a spokesman for us. They speak from their hearts, their convictions, but none of us are wealthy.

This is important, because if you understand the forces aligned to deny Trump (in other words US) his successes to rid the nation of the stain of Obamaism so evident in this video h/t Matt Bracken then you must understand how important it is to establish a voice amongst the youth of today and that is exactly what Lies of Omission is designed to do, to fight for the Millennials who will ultimately decide our future and the future of this nation.

None of this is going away, because Barack Obama left the White House. He doesn't even intend to leave DC. Obama will forever be an obstacle to freedom and to our way of life. I say this, because I am speaking to those who read this blog for a reason, because they understand the necessity of freedom, the things that ensure it and the things that deny it. Disrupt J20 has just gotten legs and will spread in different forms as persistent as a plague. We have no way to counter this sort of organization. We don't have the money to do what Soros can do.

Yes, I understand being local and taking care of your own tribe and being self-sufficient, all of us do that already. I will ask you the question we asked Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America: "What are you doing to reach out to the Millennials with your message?" Ten years down the road we will be re-fighting the wars against gun control, no matter what Trump does to ensure them, if we do not make warriors of the next generation, we are lost. Lies of Omission, in the current environment, can reach out to them and offer substantive and informative arguments for making freedom an important political issue again. A generation down the road and they won't even have anyone to ask the question: "What was freedom like?"

One last thing any potential donor might ask is: "Why should we help you make a film by which you will be made rich and successful?" First, that won't happen. We will be lucky to get back a portion of what we have personally invested. But, even if this turned out to be a boon way beyond expectations, it would only fund other efforts to accomplish a resistance to the efforts that are making little dictators of our children. At best, it would give us a platform by which we might support all manner of other endeavors by this community. Our success is your success. I did not get involved with this movement for personal gain and have lost tens of thousands trying to secure the blessings of liberty for myself and my posterity. Lies of Omission is no different and I am willing to sacrifice it all for the cause of liberty and freedom. I have been through my inheritance doing this and have drastically destroyed my retirement and I have no regrets (my wife might disagree). But, I have done it, because I know that freedom hangs by a thread and most of the things I have been trying to save have already been lost.

As we step into the next Administration, I recognize that Trump (US) will need more support, not less. The cry for freedom must become louder and more pervasive than ever before, because as the millions of little snowflakes populate the nation and target Trump, their real target is middle America that gave the nation Trump and believe in things like borders and cultural preservation. I am not asking you to do anything FOR me, but WITH me and the others involved in 12 Round Productions. I have stepped out front of this effort, because I had to, not because I wanted to, but now that it is here, let us make it into something that can support the whole of our mutual goals as we go forward. Consider 12 Round Productions an engine that might be adapted to any cause in the future. It is a force multiplier more than anything else.

Please click any of the links and help us finish this film and get it into living rooms of the next generation.

Epic Road Trip

The last round of interviews for Lies of Omission were undertaken from the 5th of January to the 13th. I left Colorado in my old Toyota 4Runner with 345,000 miles on it. Yes, it would have been better to rent a car for the journey, but being January and not knowing the condition of the roads and the added expense of trying to rent an AWD or 4WD, I opted for the cheaper, more fiscally responsible option, which was to drive my old 4Runner.


The first interview was David Codrea on the 9th, but I left on the 5th after receiving the lighting package through FedEx. I didn't know if I would encounter closed roads, or massive delays due to icy roads. Since the first step was to cross both Vail Pass and Loveland Pass on Interstate 70, I wanted to start early, thinking that 1st, I would drive through most nights and not need a motel and 2nd, that if I got to David's early I could get B-roll to be intermixed with the interviews to provide that "film quality" documentary that we are dedicated to achieving.


I signed up to Twitter for no other purpose than to promote the film and drive views to the fundrazr page. (yes, that's how they spell it) So, I started a thread for the "Epic Road Trip" and took some poorly photographed shots for the tweets. I had just put a new water pump in so I wouldn't have any problems as it was getting weak and weeping a bit. There was a little bit of traffic and icy roads near the summits of the passes, but nothing engaging 4Wheel wouldn't handle. By morning I had passed through the long expanse of I-70 through Kansas and found myself in St. Louis, MO.


I have a friend who lives in Illinois, so I stopped by and pressed him into service to obtain B-roll in his hometown. We had dinner, but by then I had been up for 48 hours and driving for most of it, so he encouraged me to get some sleep. Planning on getting more B-roll in Indiana and Kentucky, I knew I had to set out early. I got about 2 hours of sleep before I decided to set out. About an hour into the drive, with the temperature hanging around 0 degrees, I noticed the battery light had come on. I pulled over and checked it out and figured my alternator was on the fritz, so I wanted to get further down the road (this was early Saturday morning) where I might find a Walmart, a repair shop and a hotel. It took another hour and I found what I wanted. I got a room as cheap as I could and slept for a few hours, maybe two, by the time I figured someone might be open.


I called around to all of the repair shops, who could maybe get to me on Wednesday, so I knew I would be out in the cold for an hour or so replacing the alternator. Now, anyone who has done this, and I have done it a lot in my life, it seemed like nothing, a couple of bolts, but this was a 4Runner and it was the model that has the alternator below the valve cover. Fortunately for me, I had my old oil field coveralls (North Dakota winter) coveralls and I pulled up to the NAPA and started work. Yes, as is often the way, I went through every tool in the box and even had to go buy a couple. As I have said, I've done this before and know to fix a vehicle in the NAPA parking lot if possible.


Back on the road and out of the hotel before I had to pay for another day, I set off toward Indiana, getting some prime B-roll in the small town of Corydon close to Louisville, KY. By this time, it was dark and I still wanted to get to Midway, KY, where there are some interesting buildings and scenes. I wanted to get the shots at dusk, but that was hampered by the alternator, so I wound up getting a cheap room in Georgetown, KY, got caught up on a few things on the internet and planned to get up at 5am. I have always had a hard time getting to sleep at night and that Saturday night was no different. I finally slept at around 2:30 and got up at 5 and set out.


Midway, KY is a beautiful little town right in the middle of horse and whiskey country, not far from my ancestral family land going way back to 1787. I got some decent shots and set out for Ohio to pick up the director (my daughter) flying in to Columbus, OH. I had a room we could share already booked and was just arriving at about 11:00 am when, in traffic, the transmission let go and I nearly had to cause a multi-car pile-up as I swerved to get out of traffic and off the road.


Keep in mind, this is a 16 year old 4Runner with, by then, 347,000 miles on it. I was expecting it to blow up, just not then and not particularly there. But, I was in Columbus and I was early enough to sort things out before the director's flight arrived, but I spent a lot of time sorting out what to do with the vehicle, getting all of my tools and renting a car from the airport. By then, it was time to meet up with Concerned American of WRSA. We had dinner, talked about the project and the next day's schedule with David Codrea. My daughter's flight didn't arrive until 1:30 in the morning, so I went back to the room and continued the conversation with CA, who was staying just a ways down the road from our hotel. I picked up my daughter, no problem, went back to the room, got her settled, while I decided to write a post. Now, we are dealing with three different time zones here and when I sat down to write the post, I thought it was 2am, it was actually 4am and we had plans to meet back up and head out at 6am. A few hours later, I looked at the right time and realized it was nearly 5am. So, I got about an hour of sleep and got ready to meet up with CA.


This is going to be a very long post, so if you need to get a bite to eat, this would be a good place.


At 6am we headed out to the final destination to be arrived at by 9am. Now, this is where the continued issues and lack of sleep threw a wrench into the plans. I don't like GPS navigation and use it only as a last resort. When one is basically lobotomized by lack of sleep and stress, is a very good time to use GPS navigation. I can say this, because I missed the same turnoff that I was actively looking for TWICE. I will say that I can go for long periods with very little sleep and I can drive during those times without much worry, but at some point judgment takes a vacation and I exhibited lack of judgment numerous times until, Monday night at Gettysburg, PA when I finally got a full night's sleep.


David Codrea  was an excellent interview. He was gracious enough to help overcome some of my mind-addled mistakes and I know he probably has a very negative impression of me, but regardless, he had plenty of interesting perspectives to offer the project and contributed a great deal to it.


The next day, Tuesday, we visited the Gettysburg battlefield and took a few shots for the B-roll and set out for VA. We had to stop in York due to there not being any light stands in the lighting package I waited for on the 5th. We did not open the package until arriving at David Codrea's, which was my mistake, but I purchased it online, studied the photo to make sure there would be stands and umbrellas as no good lighting package is minus either of those two things. We bought some lightstands in York and continued on to VA.


Wednesday, we set out early to arrive on time at Gun Owners of America headquarters to meet up with Larry Pratt. We put all of our gear together in the parking lot of a shopping center and on time we arrived, ready to set up and do the interview. Mr. Pratt was delayed doing another interview, but that just gave us time to be ready to roll when he arrived. The folks at GOA were wonderfully accommodating and generous. They were quick to help out and let us move the conference room around to get the best angles. Larry is a practiced interviewee and helped the process along by knowing what we were after and providing us with some valuable insights into the Second Amendment and freedom in general.


From there, we split up. CA went on to his final destination and myself and the director went into DC to get some B-roll. That was interesting with the whole front of the capitol building covered up with stadium seating apparatus. We finally found a parking place and walked around to get it.


The next stop was Mississippi where a very generous donor awaited our arrival at 6am. Another hotel bill avoided by driving through the night. This, I am accustomed to, but my director daughter was not so keen on the practice. We did arrive at Phillip's house, which was magnificent, and directed to our rooms to get a little sleep. I stayed up for a few hours to discuss the project with Phillip and to chat. When my lids gave me away he sent me up to get some sleep. 2 hours later I came back down and talked to Sammi about getting some additional B-roll, but Phillip suggested we talk to the folks down at Boondocks Firearms Training Academy. In conversations with Kyle the instructor and Kim the co-owner, we realized there was some value there for the documentary and set up an impromptu interview. After that, dinner at a seafood place, then back on the road.


It was about an hour or two into the journey to Bill Buppert's in the Southwest that we got a disturbing text. It was my wife saying she was about to go into surgery. Surgery? What surgery? After some frantic moments and texts, we discovered that my wife had been taken to the hospital for an emergency appendectomy. A few more phone calls later and we were headed back to Colorado instead. I am grateful to Bill Buppert for his understanding and to CA for his understanding. It is a testament to my wife that she only contacted us by orders of hospital staff, or she would not have mentioned it to us until after the trip was over. While I appreciate her willingness to sacrifice for the cause, that was one step too far. There is nothing more important to either myself or my daughter than my wife's health.


Yes, we still have to get the Buppert interview, but with Sammi in California and me in Colorado, this is something that can be done after my wife's recovery.


So, if you have kept with me through all of that, I would ask for whatever help you might be able to give this project. We have done a lot with very little and have been conscious of all of the hard work every donor must do in order to help us out. This trip alone cost me a vehicle and the cost of a rental car to continue the effort. I can wipe all of that away with a shrug, but we are down to what must be done with paid editors, paid cinematographers, paid actors (to fill in the "real people" aspect of our B-roll) and there is advertising and making time to promote this film in order to make it what I think all of us want to see. Please go to LIES OF OMISSION and do what you can. We are into the nut-cuttin' time right now. We can mess around with this for a little bit, but in order to meet the deadline, we have to have this a completed project no later than June.
