Yes, I am happy about it just as a Jew would be happy at the demise of Hitler or Arafat. Some history... Fulgencio Batista, Castro's predecessor, was a dictator. A brutal one just as bad as any in Latin America...a region renowned for its lack of democracy. Batista was a smart man and allied himself with US business interests. And he used his position to enrich himself and oppress any opposition. Castro's revolution was not always billed as a Communist one and there were several other actions fighting Batista that were not aligned with Castro. But in the chaos of the final days of the revolution, Castro came out on top. The USA had plenty of opportunity to intervene, and Eisenhower had developed a sound plan. A puppet installed by the USA was far better than Castro. But as is so common, even today, with US foreign policy, when Kennedy inherited the presidency, he allowed the anti-Castro operation to fail and solidified Castro's hold on Cuba. JFK, IMHO, was as much responsible for Castro's lengthy rule as anything else. Think... Read more →

Continuing with the "More Guns = Less Terrorism" series, and having shown that the vast majority of so-called gun crime are thug on thug, or thug on citizen. And that the majority of these murders and assaults take place in cities with a high population of low income, racially diverse populations, and high incidence of gang and drug activity. Those are facts. The reason of why those facts exist is for another time and others to discuss. That being the case, why does it rail the socialist so much for a man in Texas to have an AR-15...or for a woman in Arizona to carry a pistol on her belt? Why do they want such people, in fact, ostensibly, "everyone" disarmed? Read carefully my historically challenged, Pokémon-chasing American as you are about to get an education. Firearms and other weapons convey to the wielder the ability to magnify his will. In and of themselves, weapons are benign artifacts. Give a good man a pistol, and it is the pistol that saves life. Give a bad man a pistol, and it... Read more →

It was just last week that I was watching an online video of the crushed bodies of children in France. And the week after that was Istanbul, and then Orlando. It is as if these scenes are blending into one another, and old memories, you only partially remember. There are common threads of course, and for those who have not been paying attention I will go over them again: 1). A man either directly or indirectly inspired by Islamic Terror is involved. We know their descriptors for a number of reasons. One is the social-ethnic heritage. A man’s birthplace is absolutely irrelevant today. A rattlesnake born in Afghanistan is the same as one born in Paris, France. Ideology and culture trump nationality. 2). A soft target is always selected. Many soft targets exist because of arbitrary rules and nice people that elect to go along with them. Sometimes an entire nation is a soft target because the belligerence has been socially engineered out of its inhabitants. In Germany the only hard target is perhaps GSG9 HQ, but elsewhere, where even... Read more →

All over the internet we see the usual “Je Suis Nice”…or “I am Nice”. While my heart burns with anger at the scenes from the terror attack, I think that sentiment is a waste of energy. The usual timeline: Terrorism by Islamic Jihadists – Shock and tears – prayer – back to normal until the next time. So rather than “I am Nice”, we should ask “OÙ EST MARTEL ?” When the ridiculous French Obama tells his people that they have to get used to having their sons and daughters crushed to death by a muslim driven truck, or blown up, or shot, or eviscerated, the French and the rest of us should ask - “OÙ EST MARTEL ?” Charles Martel for those who don’t anything of events before their birth was a French hero that crushed one of the early Muslim invasions into Europe in the 700s. And yes, this notion of Islamic Terrorism has been going on for a while now. “What would Martel do?,” one asks. Well I don’t think he would tell his people to get... Read more →


I confess that in the last few days I have had a burning anger in my heart over what happened. I am long gone from the profession but I still teach those guys and what I am going to write here is going to be controversial as hell. Some will say "its too soon". Look...I have my people out in harm's way is never too soon and we discuss this not to castigate a man, but to point out what happened...and most important...why I think it happened. Watch the video, then watch it again and again. I read a confidential debrief on the Terrorist Micah Johnson. And yes, that is what these BLM-motivated killers are. A criminal is a robber, or a rapist. Guys like this along with Mateen and Farooq and their like are Terrorists. In any case, while he did some marksmanship work none of his shots were anything remarkable. It is being speculated by "officials" that what Johnson had spent most of his time on was MilSim. MilSim is a martial version of Paintball. In essence...force... Read more →

I AM ASTOUNDED - BUT NOT ABOUT HILLARY I am astounded that so many people actually thought the system was fair, laws were equally applied and all of that Ozzie-Harriet stuff. Wake up kiddos and smell the espresso. This is how the real world works, and how it has worked here in the USA long before anyone heard of Hillary's emails. The system works and is fed by politics and money.And nobody cares what is right or wrong. I saw all of this back when I worked for SMPD. And now my friends, you see it. Do you still feel like being the good citizen...the guy that always gets screwed over following the rules that nobody else seems to follow? Laws Don't Apply To The Rich? Clinton case to be closed and sealed with no charges Some have been saying that July 5 was a momentous date in the fall of something. I disagree...I think it is the date where we begin to finally see the rise of the Outlaw American. And its about time. Related articles Attorney General Meets... Read more →

The Orlando Jihad Murders are proving to be another pivotal event for the American people. We see the legislature blaming aspirin for headaches, we see Obama telling everyone that the killers don't really want to kill anyone and that it was the gun's fault, and the usual crocodile tears while searching for a band aid by the Eloi of America. I find it ridiculous, but I don't laugh about it anymore than we laugh at the same joke told for the tenth time. After the comic element wears off it is simply tiring, predictable, and annoying. An Islamic Terrorist, inspired by a Terror organization motivated around religious goals and facilitated by Obama's policies, murdered 50 unarmed people. Anymore elaboration on this is simply irrelevant. I believe completely that today every man and woman is a potential counter terrorist. And since do not know who the terrorist is, or when they might strike, prudence demands that we take a war footing in America. Nobody will come to help us in time so we must accept that we are our only real... Read more →

1). We know who did it - a muslim terrorist Omar Mateen, 29, appeared to be a follower of ISIS propaganda and referenced the Tsarnaev brothers, who carried out the Boston Marathon bombings in 2013, at the scene, sources said. 2). We know the target. And before anyone else says anything off color, let point out that I will not allow such posts here. Just so we are clear on this - I have met homosexuals that were as hard working and capitalist as anyone else. As well I have met "believers" that have been neerdowell thieves and charlatans. If someone says, "Hey that guy is a homosexual", I will shrug and ask, "Yeah, but does he pay his own way and stay out of everyone else's business?" I really do judge people now on that and not on anything else. How we learn. 3). Target - another presumably soft and unarmed target. At last count a fairly good score 50 dead and 53 injured. death toll expected to increase. "The attack, which claimed at least 50 lives, is considered... Read more →

I don't normally post links to blogs, but this one created a good amount of discussion at my forum - Warriortalk. I found this on good friend Michael Bane's Facebook page. Read it and tell me what you think the message is. My perspective is below - I think there are some truths there, but they are endemic to modern America and can be seen anywhere one looks. I think the biggest issue however is that most instructors have not developed past the basic level themselves. Not only that but are woefully unfit physically. How the hell are you going to teach fighting (which is ostensibly what we are studying with the firearm) when you are so overweight you can't get up out of your chair without someone helping you? Moreover, all sciences develop. Nothing is ever frozen in time. And while what worked in 1976 will still work, there are a myriad of things that work far better today. All of these instructors bemoaning the internet and plastic guns and optics on handguns should ask themselves if they... Read more →
