If the Government is Planning on War – Shouldn’t You?

The President, the Speaker of the House, the Department of Homeland Security, and the FBI have all made announcements this last week about a “War on Domestic Terror” and the threat of “Domestic Violent Extremists” and “Homegrown Violent Extremists”.  

Politicians are giving speeches about “all-out war”, “declaring war”, “seditionists”, and “re-education camps”.

There are literally thousands of combat troops deployed to Washington, DC, and, exactly as I predicted, they aren’t going home.  Probably ever.  I know, they said until March.  But before that they said until after Inauguration.  Same people who famously said “just 15 days to stop the spread”.

If everyone in the federal government is ramping up for a domestic conflict, shouldn’t you?  This applies no matter which side of the political spectrum you fall on.

Here’s some guidance from the Ultimate Tactical Handbook on this:

Let the wise hear and increase in learning,

And the one who understands obtain guidance.

Proverbs 1:5

In other words, listen to what they are telling you, and learn from it.  Prepare according to exactly what they tell you.

People interested in preparedness should certainly worry, because YOU are on the DHS watch list, according to their bulletin.

According to the DHS Bulletin, anyone who is angry over COVID restrictions, the 2020 Election Results, and police use of force may be a Domestic Violent Extremist.  That covers both the right and the left.

Interestingly, it also indicates that anyone who disagrees with the official government positions on these issues is a potential terrorist.  That should indeed scare you.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Amendment 1

Constitution of These United States

The Bulletin also mentions specifically the threat of attacks against critical infrastructure, including the electric grid, telecommunications, and the healthcare sector (that one has me scratching my head).  Listen and prepare for disruptions to these areas.

The began their war first by announcing charges against an obscure troll-poster, related to charges stemming from the 2016 election.  The alleged crime: Putting out a post that directed Democrats to vote by text.  They are alleging that he hindered voting.  Keep in mind that they have had 4 years to charge this person, but charged him instead the week that a Democrat administration was sworn in.  On my Twitter feed, I have shared a tweet from a Democrat from 2016 doing the exact same thing to Republicans…she hasn’t been charged.

My point in bringing up this story is to warn you.  The administration is charging anyone who disagrees with them with anything that they possibly can. They know the charge will be thrown out, but it sent the message to the masses.

Look at the deluge of people being arrested for the alleged Capitol Riot.  They are charging them with improper entry and making a public spectacle of the charges.  Now, they know that these charges will NOT stand up in court, since there is video of these people walking past police on the way in, and the police not stopping them.  

The point in arresting and charging these people is to warn you that if you step out of line, you’ll be charged federally.  

“Portable Wall Hanger”

Another component of this new “War on Domestic Terror” is the “Portable Wall Hanger Company” incident.  The incident revolves around the online sale of “portable wall hangers”.  Now, you might be wondering what that has to do with anything.  Well, these wall hangers are 3-D printed parts and one piece can be dropped into an AR to make it fire full auto, according to the ATF & FBI.  (Dear FEDS – I wouldn’t know).  

People went online and purchased these wall hangers, and, lo & behold, the FBI & ATF started showing up at people’s doors and arresting them for using 3-D printed parts to modify their AR platform rifles.

If I was interested in proving that 3-D printing was dangerous and could be used by extremists to modify their guns, I might be tempted to set up a company and sell 3-D printed parts to do just that and then arrest anyone who buys the part, right?

Well, when you dig through a couple of shell companies, you’ll find that the address that the “Portable Wall Hanger Company” is actually registered at is INSIDE THE PERIMETER FENCING of an FBI field office.  Weird, right?  What are the odds?

If I wanted to push the narrative that right-wing extremists were gearing up for domestic attacks by modifying their firearms to fire full auto, this is how I would do it.  Arrange for a bunch of dumb people to do exactly that, arrest them, and then make an announcement.

Advice:  Don’t buy things on the internet that could be used for illegal activity.  Better yet, don’t engage in illegal activity.  I know, many of you (me included) think that the National Firearms Act and most gun laws are unconstitutional.  Yes.  Agreed.  But don’t break them, while giving your name, address, and credit card number to some random person who turns out to be a federal agent.  “HONEYPOT”…It’s a thing.

The Portable Wall Hanger Company incident is nothing more than a modern version of the police leaving a car with keys in it & the door open in a bad neighborhood.  And some of you fell for it.

But, what can we do to prepare?

The first thing you can do is avoid being caught up in the dragnet by remembering that there was even an informant amongst Jesus’ 12 closest friends.  I say that tongue-in-cheek, but here’s a another piece of Tactical Wisdom:

Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue

Keeps himself out of trouble.

Proverbs 21:23

Don’t say things, especially online, that will bring you to the attention of the federal government.  I know, you aren’t saying or doing anything illegal.  But, we are living in a very dangerous time, where suddenly free speech isn’t so free.  Legislators are calling for the criminalization of speech, and there is currently a bill to make mentioning “Stop the Steal” a basis for denying or revoking security clearances.  The First Amendment is no more, get used to it.

Second, heed the warnings in the Bulletin.  Make plans and gather the supplies to weather disruptions to the electric grid, the telecommunications system, and the healthcare sector:

  1. Keep the car full of gas.
  2. Have a good supply (twice what you think ) of batteries.
  3. Portable solar panels are never a bad idea.
  4. Have food and water for 2 weeks on hand.
  5. Have an alternate communications plan (radios of a few types).
  6. Make sure all your data is backed up to things like a Survivor USB drive.
  7. Double check and restock all first aid kits.
  8. Update your security plan.

Should large-scale violence break out wherever you are, have a plan.  While many of you plan on “bugging in”, make sure you put an asterisk on that…bug in until bugging in becomes too dangerous.  Have at least three escape routes out of the immediate area planned.

Difficult times are ahead.  As I predicted, ANTIFA is still out there demanding a violent socialist revolution.  The federal government is declaring anyone who disagrees with them an extremist, and is openly planning a “War of Domestic Extremism” (that means you).

The best thing you can do is prepare, and try to stay under the radar.
