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 →


MORE TO LEARN FROM DALLAS

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 tonight...it 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. http://handguncombatives.blogspot.co...n-current.html 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 →


Last night, over a course of a couple hours as I was working on the computer, I had a text conversation with another like-minded law enforcement supervisor. All the while, my Facebook feed was post after post about the 7 law enforcement officers from around the country killed within a week of the first fallen officer, Seaside Police Sgt. Jason Goodding, about 1 1/2 hours away from me. First off, I am not writing to criticize anyone. In conversations, I am the first to point out that I think Law Enforcement eats their own. It is bad enough there are groups who instantly criticize us just for the fact that we wear a badge. Yet, as soon as a Youtube video hits or a new story breaks on the 5 O'clock news, our thin blue line starts talking at training classes, on social media posts, you name it, condemning the officer on how we can't believe they did "this" or why didn't they do "that". These are the same officers who should understand from their own experiences and training, things... Read more →


On my forum are several threads discussing the underlying theme and intentions of the liberals. I posted this AM and the short response turned into quite an essay. Having lived in communism (which is liberalism without a tie) I can speak with some authority and knowledge. The sad fact is most Americans are totally ignorant of anything "not American". That includes culture, customs, languages, and political systems. In Europe it is rare to see someone that only speaks on language...here, it is common, as just one example. So if you tell them that liberalism is communism, they think, "No, communism is a Russian thing and it died at the end of the Cold War". If they studied world affairs and history, they would realize that while Communism may have been conceived and birthed in Russia, it is an international ideology, and hardly dead. But Americans are so in love with the idea of democracy that they, not only don't want to hear such things, but fight wars in order to infect every land they visit with that political virus. The...
