4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. 5 Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9

Utilizing Resources: Using Deer Tallow Video

I've sensed an urge to learn more about utilizing natural resources. Maybe it's the state of the national and global economies. Any way, here is a great video on using deer tallow from The Pathfinder School.

Here's one on making candles!


30 This God—his way is perfect;
the word of the LORD proves true;
he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him.
31 For who is God, but the LORD?
And who is a rock, except our God?—
32 the God who equipped me with strength
and made my way blameless.
33 He made my feet like the feet of a deer
and set me secure on the heights.
34 He trains my hands for war,
so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
(Psalm 18:30-34)

Minute Men

This American Minute article from yesterday was so good that I wanted to share it. Wouldn't this be a better option than federal TSA police forces harassing American citizens and violating the constitution?
On OCTOBER 26, 1774, the Provincial Congress of Massachusetts reorganized their defenses with one-third of their regiments being "Minutemen," ready to fight at a minute's notice.

These citizen soldiers drilled on the parade ground, many times led by a deacon or pastor, then went to church for exhortation and prayer.

The Provincial Congress charged:

"You...are placed by Providence in the post of honor, because it is the post of danger... The eyes not only of North America and the whole British Empire, but of all Europe, are upon you. Let us be, therefore, altogether solicitous that no disorderly behavior, nothing unbecoming our character as Americans, as citizens and Christians, be justly chargeable to us."

The Provincial Congress issued a Resolution to Massachusetts Bay, 1774:

"Resistance to tyranny becomes the Christian and social duty of each individual... Continue steadfast, and with a proper sense of your dependence on God, nobly defend those rights which heaven gave, and no man ought to take from us."

Boston patriot Josiah Quincy stated:

"Under God, we are determined that wheresoever, whensoever, or howsoever we shall be called to make our exit, we will die free men."

Long Bow

Doing a little research on Long Bows and Long Bow strings in particular and wanted to compile my notes and share them of course.
The longbow is where the history of archery begins. Originally, archery wasn't only a sport, it was a way of life and a means by which to provide for one's family. Though today's designs have many improvements to provide better arrow speed, durability, and comfort, the design basics of the longbow are pretty much the same as they were 11,000 years ago: the stick and the string. Historically, a fine bow was among a person's most treasured possessions. Many kings were entombed with their bows...

The draw weight of standard traditional bows is as measured at 28" draw. A good rule of thumb is 3-5 pounds removed for every inch under 28" and 5-7 pounds added for every inch over...

To measure your draw length, determine the length of your arm span in inches. Stand with your arms out and palms facing forward. Don't stretch when measuring. Just stand naturally. Have someone else help you, and measure from the tip of one middle finger to the other. Then divide that number by 2.5. The result is the correct draw length in inches for your body size...

[Lot of good information here:]Hunter's Friend
Boy Scout instructions for making a long bow string: How to Make a Bow String for an Archery Merit Badge

MAKING A FLEMISH TWIST BOWSTRING by Ron Harris

That's a good start to my research. I'll add and update over time...

8 Cush fathered Nimrod; he was the first on earth to be a mighty man. 9 He was a mighty hunter before the LORD. Therefore it is said, "Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before the LORD."

unreasonable searches and seizures [Updated] New World Order is Upon Us - We need a constitutional freedom fighter

I never thought the day would come when there were roadblocks and check points in America, land of the Free and home of the Brave... I guess George H.W. Bush's "New World Order" is upon us [video of his New World Order speech].

Amendment IV
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Bill of Rights: Fourth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America

Tennessee Becomes First State To Fight Terrorism Statewide: TSA agents are deploying to the interstates and bus stations to fight terrorism with Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR).

So we now have federal police officers manning check points on American interstates. To supposedly fight terrorism. Supposedly. I can't help but think this is just progress toward the complete control and repression of the people. "Do you have your papers sir?"

Here is an excelent interview with Ron Paul. He gets it!


Learn more: Ron Paul for President 2012!

"Disarming the highways and filling them full of jack-booted thugs demanding to see our papers is no way to make them safer. Instead, it is a great way to expand government surveillance powers and tighten the noose around our liberties."
Ron Paul Rocks!

Thomas Jefferson, the principal author of the Declaration of Independence (1776), the third President of the United States (1801–1809), and and founder of the University of Virginia, once said the following… “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” “When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”
Quoted from a must read article "Has Our Government Become Tyrannical?"

Debate Hightlights and BlackThisOut Promo [Updated!]

BlackThisOut Promo Video!


blackthisout.com

In the past I have not supported Ron Paul. He has some libertarian baggage. However, there are only two of the Republican candidates that I feel are NOT establishment, globalist, elites, and they are Ron Paul and Herman Cain. I am leaning toward Ron Paul because he has the will to make the hard choices to turn this country around!

Just as a matter of disclosure, I am not a Republican Party member. I am a member of the Constitution Party.

Occupy Chicago and the Communist Party Legacy

The video below is stunning. Many of the Occupy Chicago protesters proudly show their Red (communist) colors, and participating is Rep. Jan Schakowsky (Democrat from Illinois). One protester proudly names Chairman Mao (at about 1:25)... here is Chairman Mao's legacy:

During Mao’s Cultural Revolution in China another Christian community faced a hostile empire. Red Guards, mostly university and high school students, flooded into cities, towns and villages and systematically persecuted anyone they believed in violation of Mao Tse-tung’s Thought. As many as 100 million people were victimized through torture and imprisonment in forced-labor camps; one million were executed. To be caught in possession of a Bible meant torture and imprisonment at the very least. . .

In 1949 when Mao came to power, there were about 4 million Christians in China. Today, there may be as many as 100 million. Henan Province, once considered an ‘atheistic zone,’ was said by the authorities to have caught ‘Christianity fever.’ . . .

I asked a China expert why Christianity took its genuine great leap forward during the darkest days of the Cultural Revolution. He said, ‘Light shines in darkness.’
"The Faith: Given Once, For All: What Christians Believe, Why They Believe It, and Why It Matters" by Charles Colson, Harold Fickett


His rule from 1949 to 1976 is believed to have caused the deaths of 40 to 70 million people.


Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) marched in the Occupy Chicago rally with members of the Communist Party USA.


Here's a fun video, enjoy!



From: Gary L. Bauer [End of Day Report 10/14/2011]
Company Caves; Protestors Attack

The private company that owns Zuccotti Park backed down from its demand that the Wall Street protestors clear out so the park could be cleaned. And how did the protestors respond? Just as Iran or the jihadists in the Palestinian territories do -- at the first sign of weakness they attack!

Emboldened by their victory in occupying the park, the protestors decided to take their mops and brooms and "go clean up Wall Street." Chanting "The Whole World Is Watching," the mob attempted to breach the police barricades that had surrounded the park. And that wasn't the only lawlessness.

A Fox News affiliate in Boston reports that the Coast Guard has warned its members to avoid the Occupy Boston protestors while in uniform. Why? According to the report, one female Coast Guard member was spit on twice, verbally harassed and had a water bottle thrown at her.

No one in the great American middle class would be so disrespectful to a uniformed member of the Armed Forces. But these are the kinds of folks attracted to the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Unfortunately, there is more. Click here to watch a video from the Emergency Committee for Israel showing the anti-Semitism on display at the Occupy Wall Street protests.

Big Brother Watch [updated!]

Just wanted to keep a watch on a troubling trend here in America...

Update 10/20/11: I never thought the day would come when there were roadblocks and check points in America, land of the Free and home of the Brave... I guess George H.W. Bush's The New World Order is upon us [video of his New World Order speech].

Tennessee Becomes First State To Fight Terrorism Statewide: TSA agents are deploying to the interstates and bus stations to fight terrorism with Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR).

Update: A while back I reported about the FBI profiling Americans in the post "Are you a terrorist threat to our government?" Now a follow up to that issues highlights the incompetence, ignorance, and apathy of our elected officials. An Oath Keepers Member Writes Senator Expressing Concerns About FBI Targeting Preppers for Surveillance and Senator’s Staff Reports His Letter to the FBI.

The Federal Reserve Plans To Identify "Key Bloggers" And Monitor Billions Of Conversations
"The Federal Reserve wants to know what you are saying about it. In fact, the Federal Reserve has announced plans to identify "key bloggers" and to monitor "billions of conversations" about the Fed on Facebook, Twitter, forums and blogs... it turns out that the 'authorities' don't like it too much when Americans try to actually exercise free speech in America today... What the 'authorities' want is for us to shut up, sit in our homes and act as if nothing wrong is happening."

EXCLUSIVE: Libertas Sees the ‘Uncensored’ Version of MGM’s New Red Dawn
"the film – which features the communist Chinese invading the mainland U.S. – is currently being re-edited and digitally altered by MGM’s new management team in order to make North Korea into the primary invading force. References to the Chinese military are, according to the LA Times, being minimized wherever possible... Needless to say, we find this kind of political re-editing of a film appalling – as well as unprecedented. In the case of Red Dawn, it’s also perversely ironic, in so far as the basic premise of the film involves the Chinese invading American in order to ‘collect’ on an economic debt America owes to them – a debt that in the real world, as it turns out, China will now be ‘collecting’ by MGM’s film simply being re-edited... So in the interest of informing the public, we’ve decided to disclose what we saw in the original, ‘uncensored’ cut of MGM’s new Red Dawn – the version that featured the Communist Chinese as the villains... It’s important that America, and world audiences, not be deceived about the repressive, totalitarian nature of the communist regime in China. The ‘uncensored’ version of Red Dawn offers us a vivid warning about the Chinese government. We’re sorry to learn that MGM will now be participating in this general whitewashing of China’s regime, in order to preserve its corporate profits. MGM’s profits here are coming at a very steep price for the rest of us: that of free speech."

Book Release: "Survivors: A Novel of the Coming Collapse"

Book Release: "Survivors: A Novel of the Coming Collapse" by James Rawles

WHAT IF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT ENDED TOMORROW?
The America we are accustomed to is no more. Practically overnight the stock market has plummeted, hyperinflation has crippled commerce, and the fragile chains of supply and high-technology infrastructure have fallen. The power grids are down. Brutal rioting and looting grip every major city. The volatile era known as “the Crunch” has begun, and this new period in our history will leave no one untouched. In this unfamiliar environment, only a handful of individuals are equipped to survive.

Andrew Laine, a resourceful young U.S. Army officer stationed overseas in Afghanistan, wants nothing more than to return home to Bloomfield, New Mexico. With the world in turmoil and all air and sea traffic to America suspended, Laine must rely on his own ingenuity and the help of good Samaritans to reach his family. Andrew will do whatever it takes to make it home to his fiancée, no matter how difficult the circumstances.

Major Ian Doyle is a U.S. Air Force pilot sta-tioned in Arizona with his wife, Blanca. Their young daughter, Linda, is trapped in the North- eastern riots. Three teenage orphans, Shadrach, Reuben, and Matthew Phelps, have no choice but to set out on their own when their orphanage closes at the beginning of the Crunch. Then there is Ignacio Garcia, the ruthless leader of the criminal gang called La Fuerza, who will stop at nothing to amass an army capable of razing the countryside. And over everything looms the threat of a provisional government, determined to take over America and destroy the freedoms upon which it was built. The world of Survivors is a terrifyingly familiar one. Rawles has written a novel so close to the truth, readers will forget it’s fiction. If everything you thought you knew suddenly fell apart, would you survive?

About the Author
Former U.S. Army intelligence officer and survivalist James Wesley, Rawles is a well-known survival lecturer and author. Rawles is the editor of SurvivalBlog.com—the nation's most popular blog on family preparedness. He lives in an undisclosed location west of the Rockies. He is the author of the bestselling Patriots: A Novel of Survival in the Coming Collapse and a nonfiction survival guide, How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It.

Red Dawn Coming

This week Radio Free Redoubt re-aired a previous show called "China's Trojan Horse" (click here to listen), it's important to listen to this episode!

It's scary how much land and infrastructure China is buying in mainland United States. The premise of the new Red Dawn movie is an invasion by China to collect on bad debts. Hmmm, must have been way to close to true because they have been coerced into self censoring and editing the movie so that North Korea is the invasion force instead of China.
