484 emails...

Is how many I had. Hmm, why so few? Seriously?

Well, I'm back, but still incredibly busy. Expect no emails or blog posts for some time, and little when they do come.

The U.N. and the Obama Administration have spoken. They are coming for your guns.

I hesitate to blow things out of proportion, but honestly, this may be the biggest piece of news I have ever given you. Only time will tell. Lord willing, this will be but a drop in the bucket. I would love to say that this is merely exaggerated hearsay. I know not. Again, only time will tell, but in the meantime, we must prepare and be aware.

The NAGR (National Association for Gun Rights) reports that:

The United Nations and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are moving forward with their plan to confiscate your guns.

The United States joined 152 other countries in support of the Arms Trade Treaty Resolution, which establishes the dates for the 2012 UN conference intended to attack American sovereignty by stripping Americans of the right to keep and bear arms.

...

If passed by the UN and ratified by the U.S. Senate (which is where we must ultimately make our stand), the UN “Small Arms Treaty” would almost certainly FORCE national governments to:

*** Enact tougher licensing requirements, making law-abiding citizens cut through even more bureaucratic red tape just to own a firearm legally;

*** CONFISCATE and DESTROY ALL “unauthorized” civilian firearms (all firearms owned by the government are excluded, of course);

*** BAN the trade, sale and private ownership of ALL semi-automatic weapons;

*** Create an INTERNATIONAL gun registry, setting the stage for full-scale gun CONFISCATION. So please click here to sign the petition to your U.S. Senators before it’s too late!

You see, this is NOT a fight we can afford to lose.


Also, I ask that you watch this video linked here on the patriot Piazza's blog (you may know him as being the founder of one of the most respected firearms training centers in the nation).

Please sign the petition, please post this on your blog, please email the article(s), and please watch this issue, here on my blog and elsewhere, and be prepared to do be engaged in some serious political activity.

I could leave you with a big fat post, or try, vainly, to write a great Churchill-esque speech. I will do neither. All I say is this:

We must stand for our faith, for our families, for our country, for our freedoms, and for our firearms. We must not back down. We simply cannot afford to back down. We have lost so much already.

Are you with me? Brethren, are you with me?

Now you might expect me to finish off with some fancy slogan or line from a pep-talk. Again, I shall do neither. How about I just use the words that have suited us so well for so long now?

You can have my guns when you pry them from my cold, dead hands.

"I shall return..."

Tomorrow I am leaving for some time, a week or more. I will not have internet access nor will I worry about it, do don't expect any blog posts, comments, or answers to emails. (At the current rate of 50 or more emails a day, I wonder how large my email folder will be?) I'm going to be more than behind on the outer world, aren't I? Those of you who have my phone number, please do give me a ring should anything huge happen. Say, like a war, or something. I'd be pretty ticked off if I missed some big war and it was over before I had a chance to do anything.... ("An entire world at war, and I'm left out of it?!!?")

Things are better than they have been in some time. Still, everything good that is happening may be temporal. It is hanging in the balance, and I know not if I will be able to keep these blessings or if they will swiftly be torn from me again. I have no idea. This is simply the way it is. The Beast is wounded, but in my weary hatred, I cannot stop until I see him die a complete and brutal death. So, please, in my absence, shower prayers. Please. I need every one I can get. This is my last shot. God bless you!

And now, in the spirit of The Watchman, I shall only leave you with this next post....

You aren't going to like this...

...but you're gonna get it! Here's one big pile or articles I've found. Troll through them, they're worth it!

Culture of violence: Gun crime goes up by 89% in a decade
Wait, what's that I hear? Hmm? Is it...silence? Silence, from the gun-grabbers? No!

The NRA has its flaws, what do you fellow patriots out there think?

Somalia to Ratify CRC, U.S. to Stand Alone
I must have missed it, when did Somalia become the standard for children's rights?

The Decline of Male Space
While this piece definitely misses the mark when it comes to the issues of the war on Christianity and the evil encroachments of feminism (as well as the positive comments towards Freemasonry), this is still one worth your while. The Lady Gaga comment is just way too funny!

Jim Wagner and Black Belt Magazine

Calling all martial artists: please read

Today I ran into a guy with a shirt. On this shirt was a large shuriken (throwing star) with words on it. In his hand, he was carrying a pack of gun cleaning pads. With the mole-ish eyesight that I have, I decided to strike up a conversation to find out what was on his shirt, and perhaps move to the topic of firearms as well.

Martial arts, I knew it. A kind I hadn't heard of (and could never repeat, it was so long and, well...Japanese), something from Okinawa? I almost said that I was a fellow martial artist, but it's been more than a year since I've actually practiced or anything. For various personal reasons, it hasn't been something I've been able to practice. So, for now, I'm what you might call an armchair enthusiast. Therefore, as I hate to pretend to be what I am not, I first delineated my own interest by stating that I read Black Belt magazine. I had never heard of his particular art, and BB is where I often hear about the styles I personally don't have a practical interest in, for the most part. So, that's the first thing I thought of. I was then about to speak of my own martial arts experiences, but he got to it first. His demeanor changed, and I realized he was one of those people. A Black Belt hater! He said, "I deal with the real people." Ok...?

So I figured out that this was not going to be an exchange-either-way conversation, and this was going to be "I'm gonna pout because I am annoyed by what you like, you plebe!" conversation. He then stated it has stuff in it that is not kosher. Okay, nothing's perfect, but I seriously do not agree (although I didn't say that). If you're going to diss this publication, then you also have to tie practically all of the big names into the pot. Kelly McCann, Stephen Hayes, Moni Aizik, Anthony DeLongis, and countless others I didn't and couldn't mention (that's not even to bring up all the MMA fighters that participate). Are they all dirty? I don't think so.

As he was walking away, he said, "If you ever see the name Jim Wagner in there, don't believe what he says!" At this I almost wanted to start laughing. Why? Well...what this gentleman did not know, is that at that very moment, I was carrying a Jim Wagner Reality-Based Blade in my pocket. Yes, I was carrying his knife!

While I seriously would never claim I know everything about something that I am still technically a newbie at (and I did say armchair), I still have a hard time buying the idea that every single one of the countless BB subscribers is stupid and we've all been brainwashed, and that the respected names of our field are to be implicated. Perhaps the German knife company Boker is part of it all too? After all, they made the knife.... Oh yes, and let's not forget the little fact that Mitoshi Uyehara started the publication. Oh yeah, what else was he? Friends with Bruce Lee. Oh yes. It's the shifu himself.

It's a Black Belt conspiracy, beware!

K, the martial arts is something enormously broad. Many different cultures from around the world are involved. You have the traditional arts (Tae Kwon Do, Karate, Kung Fu, etc.), the realistic self-defense methods (Krav Maga, etc.) and then the new MMA sporting aspect. It can be...very volatile, at times. (Since when were Asian relations easy anyhow, especially with Japan involved?) I follow practical fighting styles. In my opinion, you can forget the high-kicks. Give me the eye-gouges, please. I somewhat felt that this particular gentleman may have been too much of a traditionalist for Jim Wagner (Okinawa, remember?).

I almost always find myself agreeing with Jim Wagner's opinions, and he is one of my favorites. In fact, part of the reason I love the magazine so much is because he has a column in it every issue!

But, like I said, I'm armchair, and have never actually studied under Sgt. Wagner. Take this post as your chance to speak your opinion on his self-defense philosophies. I personally don't buy it, and on top of that I'm also open to differing viewpoints as well so this one martial artists, and this other ex-marine, and then this cop guy...I can abide them all (usually). Do you really think that the man who came up with the phrase "Reality-Based Self-Defense" is a croc?

Now is your time to speak. I open up the comments section as a forum. Please comment, and please be specific and long-winded if necessary.

Not all Darwinists were Nazis, but all Nazis were Darwinists



Some food for thought, no? It is true; Hitler hearts Darwin!

The "scholarly" side of me is interested to know where the video came from and how well it was translated, though....

A little bit of headway

Well, I didn't do a thing (you got that by now, right?) but some real headway was made today.

Still, it was less than 50% of the trouble. So I guess we will see?

Is this it?

My greetings to all of you, my dear readers,

If you have been a faithful reader of my blog over the past eighteen months, then you will know that for that time period I have been undergoing what can likely be called the most trying period of my entire life.

I have fought, worked, stressed, panicked, worried, sweat, thought, been disappointed, wanted to cry (a huge one for me), tried, prayed, hoped, swallowed pride, been driven to sheer exhaustion, and everything else you might imagine. I have been brought down to my knees (lower?) and I have had one huge lesson, at the very least. On the one hand, I have learned to lean on my Lord for anything and everything. I have only been able to see ahead in weeks, often much less (sometimes only hours, actually)--and that isn't the half of it. And, secondly, my Master has also taught me a lesson I already knew, but he reinforced this in me--he reminded me what was most important in the world to me. It is exactly that, which I am fighting for.

I was beaten back from my first line of defense. I am struggling to maintain my second. While I may have a third, I am doing my absolute best to stay where I am. Spencer doesn't just give up and displace that easily. Today, I stuck myself out onto a limb, and stuck myself out far. This is my last-ditch attempt to win. If I lose this, it's bye-bye for me. I am not accustomed nor do I like to endure defeat. This time, I want a victory. Yes, true--it will not be mine, but the Lord's. Therefore I wait on Him. I can see that this war will not be won by me. Over and over again I have not succeeded. Another part of the lesson?

The Beast cannot be killed by bullets, blades, or strangulation. (I rather wish it could be--I would have slit its throat long ago and taken its head from its corpse and held it high as I roared.) I cannot see it, feel it, or hear it, but it is there. Perhaps sent by the Beast? I know not. All I know is, the Lord my God will fight for me (Deuteronomy 3:22).

This Beast was somewhat caused by, and much aided by, mere humans. Today, I can truthfully admit that I am not only just stressed, but I am having difficulty controlling my anger and hate. I have been brutally betrayed, and I struggle daily to destroy the bitterness I feel so strongly. These emotions are all not of the Lord (another reason for me to hate emotion), but yet I still am struggling with them. If you could only see all of it, you would feel it too. And then there is the question, did such emotions cause all of this in the first place? Dangerous, isn't it?

I can only wonder, hope, and pray. Is this the end? Is all of this finally over, for the better? Or have I finally lost?

Here he comes. A roaring Beast, seeking whom he may devour. I may be weaponless, but my Lord is not. It will be a battle I wish I could see (albeit incredibly one-sided). And if I should "lose", then I will accept that as the divine will of the Almighty Father. (But to be honest, I'd rather it not be. My humanity speaks thus, however, as stated I will accept whatever he sees fit to put me through.)

What I ask from all of you are your fervent and sincere prayers, if you would be so kind. I shall be eternally grateful if you would grant them me.

Die, you beast, die. I would kill you if I could, but I cannot. So, die, you beast, die.

Gary Demar, manly man!

Required reading here on my blog, this is!

Some excerpts (but read the whole thing, please):

All it takes is a few razor blades, the panic of passengers, and the unwillingness of men to take matters into their own hands because they have been assured that the government is in control and everyone has been properly screened. I’m not buying it, and neither should you.

...

While the government has decided not to scrutinize Mid-Eastern men out of fear of verbal and legal assaults from the ACLU and Muslim advocacy groups like CAIR, there’s nothing stopping us from doing it. This isn’t to say that there may not be home-grown terrorists trying to bring down planes, but odds are that, to use Ann Coulter’s phrase, it’s going to be a group of “swarthy men.” And it will take a group of them to do it. So if you see five or ten Mid-Eastern types, probably traveling without wives and children, be suspicious. If you spot such a group, size them up physically. Could you take most of them—man to man—in a fight?

...

You have to be willing to die but put all your effort in staying alive. Without this, you can’t match the terrorists who have already made the commitment.

...

That means the person who responds to the terrorists first must tell every man what to do to defend the women on the plane.

...

There is a new battlefield. Normandy was of a different time and place. The terrorists have brought the fight to our homes. If we’re ever going to feel safe again without turning America into a police state, we’ve got to push political correctness aside and take real action.


One of the best articles I've read in some time.

The Book of Eli - Theatrical Trailer



Anyone else excited to see this? I'm a bit skeptical of what the "Book of Eli" really is (see the flash of the pages of Genesis), but an apocalyptic film with survivalist undertones, Gary Oldman, and a dude with a wicked machete is something I just have to see.
