Monday Mania – 5.16.2016

Welcome to another week of Monday Mania!

I’m starting this week out with an interesting idea that I have been tossing around in my head for a long time.

I have been a guest on a couple of podcasts but I really would like to start one of my own. The thing that has been stopping me is the fact that I would like it to be interactive, meaning at least having one other person to discuss topics with. I would even love it if it became a round table type discussion.

That said, I have no candidates in mind so I would like to open up this opportunity to you all. As readers of the blog here, you probably have a bit of an idea of what I am about. My vision is to do a podcast that is an hour or less, once a week. We can record at a mutually beneficial time (hopefully) like the evening or weekend. I’m game either way!

If I seem like someone you could work with, and this seems like something that you are potentially interested in, please shoot me an email at tom@thepreparedninja.com with the subject “podcast.”

As far as the last week has been, it seems like we are spending a lot of time at my house just trying to get by. It is almost like we never really gain any ground because we are always just spinning our wheels trying to keep up with today.

When the opportunity presents itself, I am determined to adjust my lifestyle to live more intentionally. Instead of living to work, I want to work to live. As long as my basic needs are met and I have a secure foothold on life, why is there a need to do more at work? Unless I am working on my own project, why would I continue to put my health, my family, etc. on the line?

That sounds good right? We will see what happens but I know that I can make it happen. It’s just a matter of how soon I can do so.

Thank you all for your support! I appreciate all of you who continue to read and show an interest in what I do. Even if it is only once in a blue moon. More than anything, I hope that my work at least helps someone become more prepared for a difficult time.

I hope y’all have a blessed week!

-Tom

MY FINDS FOR LAST WEEK:

Stuff Worth Sharing

This week I stumbled upon some great information that I felt was worth sharing. Some of it is prepping related while some of it is political in nature. Whether you lean one way or the other in the political arena, it is important to know what is going on in the world.

Food Storage Basics Plus A Super Food Storage Giveaway

Jennifer from Are We Crazy, Or What? has put together a great post on the basics of food storage including the differences of long term and short term storage as well as things to consider when storing food. The full article can be read here.

Anti-Surveillance Mask Can Hide You From Biometric Face Scanners

Mac over at SHTFplan.com posted a story about a new rubber mask that would allow the wearer to hide their true identity from facial recognition software. Check it out here.

No Knock Raid Results in Multiple Cops Shot – One Killed

Freedom Outpost outlines the scary epidemic of no knock raids executed by the increasingly militarized police forces around the country and how it has led to increased fatalities of both law enforcement officers and citizens. Read about it here.

USDA Puts Out a Request for .40 Cal Sub-Machine Guns

For those that haven’t heard yet, the United States Department of Agriculture is the latest federal government organization that is looking to add military grade weapon systems to their inventory of equipment. Their request is not for any run of the mill sub-machine guns either, the solicitation specifically outlines the need for,

Submachine guns, .40 Cal. S&W, ambidextrous safety, semi-automatic or 2 shot burst trigger group, Tritium night sights for front and rear, rails for attachment of flashlight (front under fore grip) and scope (top rear), stock-collapsible or folding, magazine – 30 rd. capacity, sling, light weight, and oversized trigger guard for gloved operation.

Read the full account here.

Finally….

How I’d restore Ronald Reagan’s vision for America

LTC Allen West outlines how he believes that we may be seeing what he calls the first light of the “dawn of a new America.” Personally, I hope he is right. Read his take on things here.

I hope that everyone had a great week but don’t stop preparing for the tough times that may lay ahead.

What I Will Do When They Come To My Door – Guest Post

Last weeks manhunt in Boston for the suspected marathon bombers has America spinning. Freedom loving Americans are upset at the implementation of martial law while the liberal side of the United States (and ironically, those who still do not realize martial law was occurring) want to know why more wasn’t done. This creates the perfect environment to implement peaceful resistance and attempt to create accountability should the government try to oppress the citizens of the greatest nation on the earth again.

Thank you to our guest author for having the intestinal fortitude to put into words, what many of us are thinking.

What I Will Do When The Police State Arrives At My Door

Those of us who value the Constitution, as well as the inalienable freedom that is all of ours as a native birthright, have watched in horror as barely restrained paramilitary-style police squads, complete with light tanks, locked down much of the city of Boston over one – admittedly dangerous – teenager with a gun (and perhaps a few pipe bombs). Many have seen the videos of people being herded out of their homes that – truth be told – is reminiscent of what was seen as Germany descended into chaos in the 1930s. If you missed the video evidence, it is here:

or

These are just two examples. The truth is that if the blue state Boston populace had been more fully armed (and come to think of it, an AR-15 just might have been the perfect weapon for family defense, had the bombers attempted to perhaps take a family hostage), or if the Boston population had had the same courage as their forebears 200 years ago, the two bombers would not have made it very far at all. And as a matter of fact, ultimately, the fugitive was discovered by a citizen, in any event!

I am not here disparaging the police or military one iota. My nephew is a Marine. I believe in a strong Constitutionally-based national defense. It just so happens that my immediate neighbor is a former Marine and recently retired State Trooper who is a staunch Constitutionalist, and one of the most honorable, upright, common-sensical people I have ever met (as well as a very good friend), and also an exemplar of all that is good and right with the military and police. Rather, my concern is the political culture above them that is forcing many of these individuals to violate what is still the law of the land, as well as violate their consciences. I am not advocating violation of any law or statute – in fact, as you will see below, I am advocating a strict adherence to the law as it is written.

As our absentee father, relative ethics oriented, ends justify the means culture continues to devolve into a coarse parody of what the Founding Fathers envisaged, the Constitution – which is still the law of the land, and which our elected officials, military and police all take an oath to uphold – I think there are things we can do. Things that are creative, intelligent, and effective. Here is one suggestion for your consideration. Of course, consult your local laws to make sure everything you do is legal, non-fattening, and politically correct (e.g., you would not want to attempt the below in NYC, especially while holding an illegal 16 oz. Big Gulp in your hand!)

First, when another Boston situation “goes down”, I am going to make SURE I have deputized neighbors to be filming (as in the first video noted above), or have someone in the house with a cell camera that automatically uploads as it films. This is key, otherwise this process won’t work.

If the military or police come to my door, I will raise my hands high in the air, proving I am not a threat (this is for your safety, as well as the officer’s who also may have a family at home waiting for him), while at the same time informing them that I do not consent to a search, citing my 4th Amendment rights. I will not be confrontational or in-your-face with my attitude, but calmly ask for their name, badge number, and to speak with their leader. I will also let them know that any act of unprovoked violence on their part may possibly constitute a crime – or if the military, a war crime, a la My Lai. I do indeed have a very deep respect for law enforcement – however, the key is that law enforcement must remain within the confines of duly legislated laws, as determined by the democratic process – and of which the 4th Amendment is still a part. Otherwise, they are no better than, say, the badged thugs who harassed the civil rights marchers in the South half a century ago. 

I will then – enunciating my words so people videotaping this can lip read, if necessary – turn my back to them, while continuing keeping my arms raised. And – assuming I have the guts, which I pray I will, I would then tell them to “shoot me in the back” if they wish, but I do not consent to a search, based on the 4th Amendment. I will also let them know they are in violation of their oath to uphold the Constitution, and by shooting me in the back, they, themselves, may well be found guilty of murder, and jailed.

I may volunteer to let one of them in, just to out of courtesy, if I am so inclined. That is if they are concerned some “bad guy” may truly be in there, but it will be MY choice. I will let them know I am not trying to be recalcitrant at all, but rather concerned about the erosion of our freedoms, which in fact these terrorist acts are attempting to take from us as one of their primary objectives. 

The ACLU – which is a bad organization 95% of the time – does have a smart phone app that uploads video as it is being filmed, but there are other apps out there that do the same thing.

The iPhone software can be found here and for Android operating systems, go here.  

As for using the ACLU app, why not use evil against evil? About time they did one thing of value for the country. I would let the police know this real time video is being conducted, so they are on record. Or to quote the leftists, who have done so much damage to this country, they need to know, “The whole world is watching.” Doing the above would ensure authorities can’t mysteriously “lose” (see “Jon Corzine and $1.6 billion dollars” if you need further clarification for the word “lose”!) the camera, or it is taken from you. In sum, I am being non-violent, co-operative (hey, I truly want the bad guy caught too!), but also protecting my rights and the Constitution.   

 

Look, I am a dual US/Canadian citizen, so I am only half “free and brave” – where are the rest of those who are “full bloods,” who speak about the “land of the free and home of the brave?” But my goal is not even mildly precipitous. Rather, the above allows us to address a looming darkness in the land, yet be in full compliance with the law. Or, as we were advised 2,000 years ago, we need to be wise as a serpent, yet gentle as doves.  Here is a way to do exactly that. Think of doing this as “Saul Alinsky anti-matter” or Kryptonite to the left. As the late Christian rock artist Larry Norman once said, “Why should the Devil have all the good music?” Similarly, why should evil get to use all the creative ideas? Here’s one that does just that. And you can amend, mix and match, alter, modify, or whatever else you want, to my suggestions. Just get active, get creative, and communicate with others.

Recruiting Civilians For The Police State

Who wants $500??? In today’s economy it would be hard to find someone that would say no to that offer, and that is exactly what the state of New York is banking on. A memorandum from the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services that was recently leaked, outlines a new program that would reward snitches with $500 cash for informing on anyone who possesses an “illegal” firearm according to the newly passed SAFE Act. The Facebook page of the Troy Record states that,

NY State has established a toll-free tip line – 1-855-GUNSNYS (1-855- 486-7697) to encourage residents to report illegal firearm possession. The tip line also allows for information to be submitted via text – individuals can text GUNTIP and their message to CRIMES (274637). The New York State Police staff the tip line 24 hours a day. Upon receiving a call, troopers will solicit as much information as possible regarding a firearm tip then contact the appropriate police agency with the lead to initiate an investigation. If the information leads to an arrest for the illegal possession of a firearm, the “tipster” will be awarded $500.

It almost seems as if this campaign borrows a page from the Department of Homeland Security’s, “See Something, Say Something” propaganda machine. Now you won’t just have to worry about your government coming after you, but your neighbors and friends too.

Other sources have reported:

WRGB in Albany has a breaking news story posted to their Facebook page, claiming that the state of New York is offering up bribes for people to rat out those possessing illegal firearms – an interesting development considering the adoption of the new anti-Second Amendment SAFE Act legislation. In other words, a firearm that may have been obtained legally could become illegal under the SAFE Act, and anybody who knows you possess said firearm can report you and earn themselves a cool $500.

In addition to the Facebook page, Pat Bailey, a reporter from at CBS 6 in Albany, tweeted that he has a letter from the NYS Division of Criminal Justice Services explaining the reward program. According to Bailey, the Governor’s Office is claiming that the program is well over a year old. But the head of the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association says that if that is accurate, “it was a well kept secret”.
