Truth, Reconciliation and TRUMP - Understanding the Depth of Anger in the USA - The Prequel

The Trump phenomenon has caught the chattering classes by surprise, and that makes THEM angry.  Very angry.  The self-professed "smartest people in the room" have been wrong, time and time again, when it comes to distilling the meteoric and cross-party rise of Donald J. Trump.

 "Trump is angry", "his supporters are angry" became the latest arrow in the quiver of indignance worn by the corporate press.   


Included in the post are some suggestions for questions you may wish to ask in your FOIA request as part of your search for the truth and to expose the lies and web of connections.

Given the level of rancor and suspicion that is coming to a head in America between large and loosely affiliated tribes characterized as "coastal elites", Progressive/Communists, transfer payment adherents and crimmigrants versus what can appropriately be described as "White, Christian, Phallic Oppressors" and those who love them, it is apparent that something needs to be done RIGHT NOW.

How to write a FOIA request for the State of Oregon

The writing of a Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) request is fairly straightforward, it just involves a little digging as to who you address it to, and coming up with a succinct request.  Before contacting any entity in Oregon, please read the guide.

Many people with military experience can attest to working for a Commander who states words to the effect of "give me everything you have on [fill in the blank]".  As you know this is insanely wasteful of resources and you rarely get what is wanted, but you eventually get what was asked for with that approach, it is best to parse it down.  Get specific.  Here is an example:

Friday Night Thought: All the King's Horses, and All the King's Men .....

My co-blogger, Partyzantski, usually posts his inspirational "Friday Night Thought" about this time.

Tonight, I want to co-opt his space to share a "Friday Night Thought" of a different kind.

SHTF Self-Education Series: A Prepping E-Book to Avoid?

We have received a lot of e-mail requests here @ StopShouting blog.  Among them were requests to review and critique some of the "Prepping" books on the market today, with an eye to practicality and whether the advice is sound.

What does the mass crimmigration mean?

As Europe continues to be swamped past the limit with all manner of crimmigrant flotsam and jetsam, it is useful to take a few minutes and think about this situation and what it means.  Sure, there are numerous voices raging against the wind, such as the Visegrád Hungarians, the Poles and the Czechs, among a few others... they are like modern day Diogenes, whose lantern is fading.  But consider if you will if we turn this global issue around 180 degrees.

Creative Home Security Ideas ... Defeating the Criminal and the Potentially Dangerous

Creative Alternative Uses for items at your local hardware store.....

The world of home security remains an exercise in creativity and staying ahead of the criminal and dangerous.  Quite often, you see something that is listed for a given purpose, but you realize quickly that it is "dual purpose".  Using your creativity can save you some coin as well as provide a degree of security through the unusual that a common criminal may just not want to mess with.

As in previous posts, we will only touch on three ideas per week to keep these posts simple and succinct:

DOOMSDAY... or something else?

Doomsday or something else?

Readers may have picked up that I am not a proponent of the Biblical level TEOTWAWKI type event.  I think things will get worse (perhaps much more so) before they get better.  One of the books I had read previously that triggered my musing was "The Coming Anarchy" by Robert Kaplan.

Rivers of Blood - Prophecy Realized ?

Enoch Powell's "Rivers of Blood" speech as prophecy realized

 In April, 1968, British politician Enoch Powell gave the speech of his lifetime.  Based upon what he saw as the purposeful destruction of Great Britain by the rot of "multiculturalism" (what he terms "integration" in the speech), he gave the long term political weather forecast for England specifically and the West in general of 100% chance of blood showers with occasional crimson downpours.

Beginning a Preppers "SHTF" Garden? Avoid the hidden hazards - Here's some important safety info you need to know.

Many prepping advice sites discuss in addition to long term food storage, the need to have an ongoing, long term food source you control, such as a garden or aquaponics setup. There are many excellent blogs dedicated to planning, setting up, growing and organically managing a SHTF prepper's garden.  This is not "that" type of post.

This post is about some basic safety information you need to know before you venture out and commune with the land.

Taqiyya, Kitman, Maqama oh my! ... Self-Education Series to disarm the Liars defending Islam

Blogger Baron Bodissey has been fighting in the trenches against Islamic encroachment for years, and part of his self-identified mission is to help educate others so that they can effectively join in the battle in beating back the very real, and existential threat that the current assault of Islam on the West presents.

ISIS self-proclaimed 10 year plan for invasion and conquest
Just recently he battled with a silver tongued and rhetorically agile muslim, who had shown up at his site to engage commenters in an effort to deceive and deflect from the true beliefs of Islamic adherents.  Baron Bodissey cogently lays out the back and forth with the "Maqama Troll" and informs the Reader how Taqiyya is practiced to disarm critics of Islam.  Tellingly, like other movements that operate by exploiting fear over appealing with reason, "guilt" is often invoked by muslims as a tool to browbeat their critics into submission and capitulation (reference to the crusades, jewish pogroms, etc).

Friday night thought - 15 January 2016 AD - The Discipline to Confront

Friday night thought, 15 January 2016 AD - The Discipline to Confront

As we get into the swing of this new year, and stop signing checks with "2015", it is time again for some moto to get us into this weekend.  Perhaps one of the most stone cold, rock solid things that I have ever read is what has been termed "The Stockdale Paradox". It is a term coined by Jim Collins in his book, "Good to Great".

The nature of Totalism

This post is about totalism and totalitarianism.  I was thinking about this this morning while driving on a ring road of a growing city.  Traffic had developed to the point where I had a chance to reflect and develop a few themes that have been percolating.

First off, the entire drive towards "political correctness"... have you considered that it really does not matter WHAT the forces of evil PC drive people to believe, it is that they are all believing the same thing.  In math, the process of simplification allows you to divide both sides of an equation by the same thing, reducing the answer.  PC works in the same way... as long as both sides of the equation believe the same essential elements, it is quite easy then to work on what is left.

VBIEDS (Vehicle Borne IEDs) and Security Architecture

Matt Bracken has postulated that VBIEDs (Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Devices) will be a feature of the coming disruption.  While it is a statement that will jar a normal civilian who is drenched in normalcy bias, I would suggest that VBIEDs will become a part of life here in America.  They already have, and I will show you why.  Understanding how to adapt commercial style Force Protection measures against VBIEDs to your own location should be an integral part of your personal security planning.

Survey Course on 4th Generation Warfare for the Prepper Civilian - An Army Colonel's Perspective

The following essay was submitted to us by a loyal Reader and professional military officer - we'll call him "Kilo-6".

Generations of warfare are not specific to any particular time or conflict. We can mark certain shifts in how war is fought based on strategy, tactics, techniques, and weapons used. Elements of newer generations of war-fighting are always present in the past generation as they establish the need to move forward in how we fight wars.

Cryptography and You - A basic introduction to the tradecraft

Cryptography is an interesting subject that touches on every one of our waking days. Your bank ATM transactions, point of sale visits, internet... all use crypto in a seamless way to give you a modicum of security in your transactions.  However, how do you get your hands around crypto, where you decide the parameters? How do you begin to understand what crypto is, and how you can deal with it?  This short post is a "toe in the water" survey of the subject.

The True Price of "Cheap" Oil - Iran, Saudi Arabia, Russia and the Final Countdown

The falling prices of oil at the retail level in America is considered a happy circumstance, a windfall, manna from heaven that allows Americans to keep on shopping and driving like there is no tomorrow. I posit that this is a "calm before the storm" event.

SATURDAY ENCORE: Most Read Posts of the Week

"Unexpectedly", many of the "most-read" posts for this week were older pieces, but apparently the desire to learn more about the history of Islamic terror and the tools they use to inflict their terror has hit a high interest point. We've also seen a big uptick in visitors from Europe.

Friday Night Thought ~ Jan 8th, 2015 AD ~TRUTH

Friday Night Thought

I would like to begin this short article with the above quote in an attractive slide format.  soothing, isn't it?  This quote and the sentiment behind it  falls directly in line with the attributed writings and works of Confucius, who is credited as saying

“The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their proper name.”

4th Generation Warfare and the Reluctant Suburbanite, Part III of III - Conclusion

4th Generation Warfare and the Reluctant Suburbanite
What it means for you and yours
A Three Part Series - Part III of III

In Part I, I opened up this series by saying this applies to you and your suburban enclave, as well as your charges. It does. As that foreign dysfunction is now being imported directly here, it matters to YOU. That dysfunction, with Federal subsidies, payments and benefits that you do not even know about or are even eligible for (yet, YOUR tax dollars fund), are now going to compete with you and yours for jobs. It is as if the Romans made Christ pay for his own crucifixion. 
We last left off at the end of Part II by discussing the "M" in the acronym DIME.

When Bugging Out is NOT an Option #3: Perimeter Security, Part II

You have Questions, we try to Answer.  The following post is part of a series of Tuesday Prepping posts in response to Reader Questions about what basic steps should anyone new to prepping or first becoming aware of their own home's vulnerability should take to prepare and secure themselves should the security situation in the USA begin to decline more precipitously than it is now.

This is the third post in this series.  #1 discussing doors, windows and other points of entry can be read here and #2 (the first on basic perimeter security) can be read here. #3 continues with additional basic perimeter security measures.

Perimeter Security Management and You, Part II
by Partyzanski, Certified US Military Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection Officer

In my previous article regarding household perimeter security management, I mentioned shrubbery, lighting and observation (peephole for the front door, some options there). As perimeter defense and awareness is a complex topic, in part 2 I will discuss other methods to detect and deter the criminal element from your home, a place where you should be safe and sound. Remember, YOU have a RIGHT to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”. Most suburbanites and exurbanites find that place is their home, with your hearth and honey.
In keeping with prior articles, I will address only three items in an effort to keep the information short, timely and easy to digest and act upon.
