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...

On Business Be bold and take chances. Boldness will never replace skills, but boldness and skills can help create opportunity. Don’t take unnecessary risks, but do step outside your comfort zone. The old adage is true “Nothing ventured; nothing gained”. It can pay to be first, so always look for the shot to be first. Learn your subject matter better than anyone else. Don’t just learn it, but practice and polish your delivery. There is a difference between arrogance and confidence. Weaker men may not be able to tell the difference; ensure you do. My clients are all adults and like to be treated as adults and with respect. You choose your clients; you have to know what direction you want to go and who you want as a client. My career in the United States Air Force was the same as many others; the difference was in my approach and application. USAF Service I entered the USAF in 1988 as a Security Policeman/Security Specialist. I was trained in Industrial Security, Air Base Ground Defense, and Anti-Terrorism. I qualified with...

Last month, three Americans while on vacation in Europe, helped stop a terrorist from killing the passengers on the train they were riding in. The first American charged the terrorist and wrestled him to the ground, luckily the AK 47 jammed and the terrorist wasn’t able to fire it because he did not know how to clear the jam. Once the American wrestled the terrorist to the ground, it should have ended quickly with a choke hold or neck break. The problem was the terrorist was also carrying a box cutter, the terrorist stabbed the American multiple times in the head, neck, and almost severed his thumb, the American had no choice but to let go, luckily there were two more Americans there to kick his ass. I know many of you carry a knife, but not all of you. So this article is just a reminder to those who do carry to continue to carry and to those who don’t, you need to start. Realize that just carrying a knife in your pocket, and knowing how to use a... Read more →


If you look at any youtube video, there’s more than enough proof you need to continue to train to protect yourself from danger, threats, and violence as it’s part of life. That’s why you are here, to learn and then take action. In this post I’m going to talk about gear, two of the three pieces of equipment I'm going to talk about you probably are already carrying on you at all times, if your not, then you should. You should never use the excuse of it being too inconvenient or uncomfortable. When your life depends on your training and your gear, its not about comfort, its about what needs to be done, I’ll go deeper into the Combat Mindset/Killer Instincts in another post. The first piece of equipment is of course your Glock or whatever pistol you decide to carry. The second thing is a knife, you don’t have to be a knife fighter, but if you ever get caught off guard and the criminal/terrorist takes you to the ground, I doubt many of you’ve spent the years needed...
