There is a saying in spanish that describes insurgency combat - "tira la piedra y esconde la mano". Loosely translated it means "throwing a stone and then hiding the hand that threw it". Inherent in the act is concealment, and the expectation of going unnoticed, specially when surrounded by a crowd or mob or people. Preferably a mob that had no involvement, directly in throwing the stone. So the recipient of the stone has no idea which individual in the mob threw it, but he damn sure knows it came from that particular crowd. And the stone thrower, like Mao's fish, keeps swimming along unidentified. But the people in the mob...you can bet that they know who he was as they were standing right next to him, or heard his friends discussing the procurement of stones, or something along those lines. I think we all see it. The problem is that the west cannot successfully deal with the dynamics of that mob and retain its own egalitarian self-image. But soon, its self-image will not be the most important thing. But... Read more →


The Terrorist - Uzbekistani Muslim ISIS Advocate on a Green Card The weapon - a Truck like we have seen nearly a dozen times in Europe. More dead innocents - victims of the Jihad - that didn't think we lived in a time of war. So what is your mission? Are you prepared to fight for your homes and your families and your lives? We live in a time of war...that much is undeniable by any rational American. Read more →


Photo of costumed person holding a gun at Oak View Mall, Omaha Halloween event prompts swift social media reaction I posted this image with the "WHAT WOULD YOU DO?" caption on Facebook as well as on my forum. The responses are - well - somewhat amazing. There are arguments that "anyone would be able to tell that is a fake weapon" and that some of us are too quick to shoot. So here is the point of this discussion - to get the readers to think. I have seen this thought process before and we can divide it into two sides. One side takes what they see at face value, makes decisions based on that and then takes action. The other side doesn't really want to take action and will look for any "out" to justify them not taking action. So lets look from the first perspective - Context - this image is what you see. Can you at first glance tell whether that is a fake weapon? I can't. Sure if we get closer and examine it it becomes... Read more →


What does this have to do with anything today? Because what you are seeing in St. Louis is not really about race regardless of what the media are saying. Kareem Abdul Jabbar got a couple of things right. It is about “class warfare”, and its being created and fed by the Communist Movement in America. Read more →


REMINGTON 870 AMPHIBIAN 12 GAUGE (NP3) Introducing the Suarez International 14" Amphibian Remington 870 pistol grip firearm. The Amphibian is 26.5" long with a 14" barrel, and is an extremely small, light, and portable weapon. And finished completely in NP3 it is suitable for maritime duties or for service in any wet environment that would otherwise harm a weapon with a standard finish. This weapon is built on Remington Model 870 that came from the factory with a pistol grip mounted and classified as "Other Firearm". This is a NON-NFA, Completely Compliant and Legal 'Firearm' (technically not a shotgun). Transfers as "Other" on 4473. The Remington part number for these is "81187". As long as these Pistol Grip Only (PGO) firearms remain longer than 26″ in overall length, and have never been equipped with a shoulder stock, they are perfectly legal with a barrel that is less than 18". Do not change the pistol grip on the firearm, nor shorten the barrel in any way, nor carry the weapon concealed. If you do any of these things you may be... Read more →


I have been doing this for a long time now. My teaching career began in 1977, teaching Karate at the Burbank YMCA. It was great gig for a 17 year old and it paid for gas and for the cost of dating the girl that would become my wife. I know how to teach people to do violence. I doubt there are many men on earth that have done so as long or as diversely, or as widely as I have. In fact, I am sitting at the hotel bar right how pondering the lessons from my last class here in Texas. My job as a teacher is not to stroke the student's ego...as so many do today. My job is to show them truth. If they suck...it is my job to patiently show them...but also to show them how to overcome that. Many of my students have killed bad guys. Some as private citizens...others on the payroll of city or nation. I have done this on five continents. One might say I know a few things. So this can... Read more →


This from Spencer's Jihad Watch. Islamic State insists Las Vegas was jihad, says shooter converted to Islam six months ago "Most people believe the Islamic State is lying in claiming any connection to this, and that Paddock was not a convert to Islam. But ISIS continues to claim the attack anyway, and does not have a history of claiming credit for attacks for which they were not responsible. Maybe they’ve started doing so now. Maybe not. They don’t seem to be afraid that Stephen Paddock will turn out to be a white supremacist neo-Nazi or some such. They don’t seem to be worried about being definitively exposed as grandiose liars." This coupled with the following - 1). The clear and secretive way the investigation is being handled. 2). The between the lines statements of Lombardo (listen to the interview) 3). The application of Qui Bono (who benefits) by the confirming or denying it was a Jihad attack. 4). The absolute incongruence between Paddock and all other "Lone Crazed Angry White Old Guy" mass murders. 5). Lack of published motives (which... Read more →


I have written a piece on every major terrorist event in America for the past five years. Tragically, it is almost as if I can reuse much of what I said in my past posts. Usually the articles conclude with something along the lines of – “carry your gun everywhere regardless of the rules, keep your level of alertness high, and always remember that we live in a time of war.” Still very valid advice but this attack, while brilliant as well as it was evil, was not anticipated. Who would have thought of such a thing?! And that is in part why it was so successful. We said the same when a terrorist drove a truck into a crowd in Nice, France and killed masses of people crowded together. We said the same thing in Mumbai…and what seemed like a lifetime ago in September of 2001. But evil is clever and resourceful, and we must anticipate its moves lest we fall to its plans. I will divide this piece into the motivations of the bad guy, his tactics and... Read more →
