Organizing patriots in the face of government informants
There is a simple fact that must be understood when it comes to the fight for liberty: Such a fight cannot be won alone. Freedom requires organized resistance, and it does not matter how many millions of people stand against an authoritarian regime, if they are isolated from one another they will lose. It's a guarantee.
This is why a considerable portion of establishment money, energy and propaganda are directed at defusing or sabotaging any semblance of conservative organization. This includes engineering false flag events and creating potential terror attacks from thin air so that they can be blamed on constitutionally minded groups. This is not conspiracy theory; this is conspiracy fact.
As we now know according to court documentation, the supposed scheme by a Michigan "militia" made up of anarchists to kidnap Governor Gretchen Whitmer and "try her as a tyrant" was heavily infiltrated by at least a dozen FBI agents and informants. The group was so infiltrated, in fact, that the entire plot for the kidnapping was essentially planned out by the FBI. This is the very definition of a false flag. The corruption and entrapment involved in the operation was so egregious that even the leftist media has reported negatively on it.
I recall a very similar situation that occurred during the Malheur incident when Ammon Bundy (son of Cliven Bundy) and a group of patriots decided to annex the wildlife refuge and its obscure ranger buildings as a launching point for a revolution. Though I was a supporter of the efforts at Bundy Ranch, I was vehemently against Malheur because the whole situation seemed grossly suspect. The strategy made no sense, the rationale made no sense, the site of the standoff made no sense, and the public optics were terrible. It was an anti-Bundy Ranch; a situation in which all of the dynamics were in favor of the feds and against the liberty movement.
And, not surprisingly, Malhuer had also been influenced and in some cases was arranged by federal informants and agents. These people were whispering in the ear of Ammon Bundy the entire time while the FBI authorized them to commit criminal acts. There were so many paid employees of the FBI at Malheur that jurors decided to drop all charges against most of the defendants involved.
And what about the latest "J6" rally in Washington D.C., which was planned by a virtually unknown former Trump aid and was quickly exposed as a potential "honeypot" designed to lure in conservatives. The army of plain-clothes undercover feds was so prevalent that riot cops accidentally arrested an armed FBI agent thinking he was a protester.
Now, there are many people in the alternative media that are breathing a sigh of relief that almost no one showed up for the J6 protest or "fell into the trap." In fact, there were far more reporters and feds there than actual activists. However, I think we need to look at the bigger picture of why the government is staging such events in the first place, and it's not just to catch conservatives in honey pots.
If you think about it, the entire strategy is high cost/minimum reward if we only look at it in terms of actual arrests. If the idea is to catch and prosecute patriots, then they could infiltrate groups and engineer criminal actions for decades and achieve little to nothing. Obviously, this is not the purpose of informants. Rather, the strategy is not to invade groups unnoticed; the strategy is to be noticed, to make sure the whole of the liberty movement believes that if they ever try to organize in any way the feds will be there to set them up. In other words, the primary goal of the FBI is to instill paranoia and fear among patriots and ensure they never effectively organize to resist.
So, when we cheer the "failure" of J6, we need to keep in mind that the establishment does not care. Getting people to show up was not their main intent; making people afraid to show up for any other events in the future is what they want.
The issue presents a Catch-22. If conservatives organize there is the chance that some groups will be infiltrated or set up and used to make the entire movement look bad. If we don't organize, then we have lost the fight. It will be over before it even truly begins (and no, the real fight has not started yet). What is the solution?
I think it's odd but maybe not surprising that the standoff at Bundy Ranch has been memory-holed by the media and is rarely mentioned even among conservative activists. Yet, it was probably one of the most successful patriot actions in the past couple of decades. There are a number of reasons for this:
1) The action was spontaneous, not pre-planned and was in response to criminal activity by the FBI (including assaulting women that were protesting and the use of sniper positions to surround the Bundy property similar to Ruby Ridge). The movement took action to remedy a government trespass rather than creating a standoff out of nothing.
2) There was no single person in charge. Groups showed up from all over the country; some of them squared away and some of them screw-ups. This might sound like a bad thing, but in terms of rebellion, it is often better to avoid streamlined top-down leadership. Frankly, I am usually suspicious of anyone that tries to anoint themselves the "leader" of the liberty movement or the sole leader of protest action. Cult of personality is the most useless thing I can think of when it comes to battling tyranny, and top-down leadership can be easily manipulated or controlled.
3) Because of the decentralized nature of the response to Bundy Ranch, the feds had no way to influence or predict the outcome, and they really hate that. Without informants in key positions, the feds did not have the ability to adapt to the quickly changing circumstances. Contrast this with Malheur, where the feds were basically in control from the very beginning. The site itself was so isolated and ill-conceived that the FBI was able to dictate every movement of patriots in and out of the area. It was pointless for any militia to occupy it, but it was a great spot for the feds.
4) Patriots arrived at Bundy Ranch peacefully, but with the will to fight if necessary. The Bundy Ranch response had a clear objective – To stop the FBI from harming the Bundy family and to retrieve the stolen cattle if possible. Both of these objectives were accomplished and with no shots fired. A complete success. Without a clear objective, there is no purpose to any action.
It is important to understand the difference between a Lexington Bridge moment and a Fort Sumter moment – During Lexington Bridge, the revolutionaries took action to stop a British detachment from arresting colonial leaders and confiscating rifles and powder stores. The British were in the midst of an undeniable attempt to disarm and snuff out the resistance. At Fort Sumter, the Confederate attack was in response to an attempted resupply of the fort itself, which made sense strategically but looked like an act of pure aggression to the wider public. The concept of states’ rights (more prominent in the minds of the confederates than the issue of slavery) fell by the wayside.
Eventually, tyranny has to put boots on the ground. A totalitarian system can function for a time on the color of law and implied threats, but it will crumble unless it is able to establish a physical presence of force. Once those jackboots touch soil in a visible way and the agents of the state try to expand oppressive measures, rebels then have a free hand to disrupt them or bring them down. But this only works if there are objectives and enough decentralization to prevent misdirection of the movement.
Organization is essential. It cannot be avoided. All the "Gray Men" and secret squirrel preppers out there that think they are going to simply weather the storm in isolation and pop out of their bug-out locations to rebuild are suffering from serious delusions. I can't help but think of that moment in 'Lord of The Rings' when the Ents refuse to organize to fight against the orcs. Pippen suggests to Merry that the problem is too big for them and that they should go back to the Shire to wait out the war. Merry laments:
"The fires of Isengard will spread. And the woods of Tuckborough and Buckland will burn. And all that was once green and good in this world will be gone. There won't be a Shire, Pippin."
If this fight is not pursued now, there will be no world worth coming back to, even if one was able to successfully hide from it. There will be a "new world order" as the globalists like to call it. There will be nothing left of freedom.
So, organization must be accomplished, and it should be built at the local level. This is far more important than any dreams of national organization, at least for now. There is no one I would trust to lead such a nationwide revolt, and that includes political leaders like Donald Trump.
Will federal intrusions happen? Of course, but at the local level it is much easier to vet people according to their behaviors and root out bad actors. Hold your local meetings to discuss current events and create a place for people to network and get to know each other. Talk to local businesses or your county sheriff to see where they stand on issues like the vaccine passports and Biden mandates. Put things in motion now or you will regret it later when your community is completely disjointed and paralyzed by fear during a crisis or government subjugation.
And, what about the first guy at your meetings that starts talking
about building bombs, drafting "kill lists" or kidnapping
governors? Kick his ass out promptly and make sure everyone knows why you
did it. Most likely he is a fed or he is on an informant payroll. As our
national composure breaks down and the manure hits the fan, fed informants and
agents will suddenly disappear from these groups without a trace. They are not
going to stick around for what happens next; the government doesn't pay them
enough for that. And knowing who the patriots are will not help the federal
government if the patriots are organized to defend themselves. This is the
reality which they do not want us to wake up to.
To truth and knowledge,
Having a large food stockpile is one of the main goals of every prepper. Unfortunately, many newbies think that all they have to do is run to the store and fill a cart with canned foods. This is a costly mistake. You need to take some time to figure out what foods to store and exactly how to store them.
Most of my readers already know the basics of emergency food storage, but I also have quite a few readers who are just getting started—people who have never used any food storage methods other than their refrigerator. This guide is my attempt to help them get started, and it’s also a good refresher for more experienced preppers.
By the end of this guide, you will know the basics of food storage so you can start stockpiling the right foods in the right places to ensure your family has something to eat after a major disaster. ..

Fire, flood, hurricane, tornado, earthquake, snowstorm, power grid failure, civil unrest, and pandemic. You can take your pick of these and other reasons why you should have an emergency stockpile of food for your family.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency recommends storing a minimum of one gallon of water per person for at least three days and a three-day supply of non-perishable food. And has a list of suggested foods to store in your emergency pantry.
But over the past year and a half, most of us have realized that a three-day supply is not nearly enough to get us through some emergencies. Building a stockpile of food for the future while feeding a family in the present can be expensive. How can you get the most bang for your buck on the stuff you need...?

Answer: A quality power bank can hold a charge for up to 6 months.
The thing is, most power banks will slowly lose charge over time depending on the temperature the power bank is stored at.
In addition, lithium-ion, and lithium-polymer batteries used in power banks eventually lose their capacity (typically between 200 up to 1000 cycles depending on the battery cell quality.)
The bigger the battery is, the less cycles you will need to charge it and the longer it will last. But, I would check them every 6 months if I were you.

It may come down to a revolution against the socialist bastards undermining our Republic...
America has become like a scene from the movie 'One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest.'
Things are bad. Supplies are short. There are no replacement parts. We're backordered through to Fall 2022. Meanwhile equipment breaks and can't be repaired. Elevators, buses and HVAC systems are failing. Construction is in crisis. Fridges for medicine and food are failing. Car manufacturing has stalled. Even grass seed is in short supply. There aren't enough truck drivers. There are too many container ships in too few ports with far too few longshoreman, truckers and berths.
How long before it all snaps? Not long. Read this blog & prepare. And never mind shopping for the holidays - you need to think survival: Food, heat, self-protection and barter goods.
