Most survival literature presumes that regardless of the disaster scenario, you will be either in a wilderness or rural area. This is fallacious simply because not all emergencies involve an absence of urban or even suburban locales; at minimum, you’d have to bug out through such areas. By the same token, there are those disasters where you’d be located within an urban and/or suburban context for the entirety of the emergency; therefore, it would behoove you to not just learn about wilderness survival or off-grid homesteading, but also the unique intricacies of surviving the urban jungle.
As the author of Mantrapping, Rangar Benson offers a unique perspective when it comes to survival. Why does he think that urban survival is more realistically practical than wilderness or even rural survival when the Schumer Hits the Fan? Continue reading
The following is a mirroring of Gary Hunt’s articles about political prisoner Jesse Newsom. Originally indicted for being a felon in possession of a firearm, Newsom has since been convicted. He is currently serving a 2 year and 10 month sentence, and is expected to be released sometime in 2018.
I. Jesse Newsom & Writs of Assistance [7/22/15]
There is little doubt that the government knew that Jesse Newsom was on the road when they chose to serve a search warrant, not on him but on the premise and a vehicle. This will be explained in a subsequent article dealing with his arrest. Continue reading
“Those comparatively few law students of those comparatively few law schools who do learn to recognize the great gap between worldly problems and legal principles – and who do not later fall prey to the propaganda of the trade they are practicing and forget all they once knew – can become extremely useful citizens. They have been trained to look at every legal problem as what it really is – a practical problem in the adjustment of men’s affairs. They have been taught how to throw aside the entangling trappings of legal language in seeking a fair and reasonable and workable solution; and then, having found such a solution, how to wrap it up again in respectable legal clothes and work for it in terms of principles of Law. In short, they have learned how to treat the whole of The Law as a technique, as a means to an end, as Pleading and Procedure. And, more than that, they have learned something woefully rare among the modern medicine men. They have learned to concentrate on the end, which is the practical solution of a human problem, instead of on the means, which is The Law.”

Legal interstices, briefly defined, are grey areas within the law that can be used to violate the spirit of the law while simultaneously keeping the letter of the law. A “rules lawyer” can engage in the “sharp practice” of exploiting legal technicalities in order to game the system so as to advantageously benefit himself or his client. This “legal opportunism” can be frequently observed by the variety of constitutional interpretive schemes as well as the “malicious compliance” observable in many corporate workplaces.

Kevin “KC” Massey is an American political prisoner who has been convicted of being a felon in possession of firearm, as documented at length in Gary Hunt’s “Camp Lone Star” series. While rotting away in a government dungeon, Massey has decided to write letters from prison so as to exercise his freedoms of speech and of the press. Be sure to read, “Caged Arbitrarily: KC Massey on Government Dungeons,” and “Letters from Massey (No. 1 – 5),” before perusing this selection.
VI. Letters from Jail #6 [7/14/15]
I am writing this letter to explain what I have seen and understand by reading the word of God. I want to start this off with a quote from Jesus Christ to his disciples before his crucifixion – John 10.25-26 “I have told you and you do not believe. The works I do in my Father’s name testify to me, but you do not believe because you do not belong to my sheep.” Continue reading
“You have certain rights, period; and what the government does cannot change that. The government is a thug and a thief; be on your guard, watch it with caution, for it is powerful. But do not be awed by it. Do not grant it respect or moral sanction. Treat it as you would any villain…this, rather than political action, is the course I would recommend to libertarians. And the likelihood of its success is no less than the prospect of dismantling the government from within. Granted, it lacks the flashy trapping of political campaigns. There would be no campaigns and media hype. It would be a quiet revolution and one that is largely decentralized. It would entail dozens of different strategies. It would take a long time, and it wouldn’t be glamorous.”
– George Smith
Tyranny itself could be described as institutionalized coercion. Given that the State is a territorial monopolist in the provision of law, then legal abuse (aka, lawfare) becomes a fait accompli. As such, it is folly to think that controlled schizophrenics and political crusaders would be able to shrink the power of Leviathan through reformism. If vulnerability to coercion is the foot in the door for authoritarians, it becomes self-evident that reducing vulnerabilities might just provide a way out; how could this be accomplished, though?

I. Letters from Jail #1 [6/27/15]
As I sit here in this hell hole, wondering what has happened to me, and our country. I have been spending a lot of time reading the Bible and reflecting on my life. Continue reading
“There are many paths to freedom (true) and each individual should choose the one he or she thought most workable…[t]he libertarian analysis superbly explained the political history of the world and – combined with free-market economics – analyzed depressions, modern warfare, and revolutions, describing their causes and predicting the futility of political solutions…[u]sing political means to achieve free-market ends is self-destructive and self-defeating.”

Welcome, all brand new subscribers! As many of you are aware of, I’ve recently written primers on Ron Paul for Donald Trump supporters, Gary Johnson acolytes, and former Bernie Sanders believers. I did so because I felt that these irrational voters ought to be warned about their naïve political crusading, yet I couldn’t shake the feeling of the enthusiastic authoritarianism that I’ve witnessed from voters every election cycle without fail. Continue reading
The following is a partial mirroring of Gary Hunt’s series about political prisoner Kevin “K.C.” Massey. Currently, Massey is serving a three year and five month sentence because he was convicted of violating 18 USC § 922(g)(1) for the victimless crime of “felon in possession of firearm.” Please read,“Camp Lone Star (No. 21 – 25),” before reading this selection.
XXVI. The King Can Do No Wrong, or Can He? [9/13/15]
At the last hearing, Judge Hanen had told KC’s attorney, Sorola, that the Motion to Dismiss Indictment wasn’t written correctly. That motion had been denied in, which is discussed in Act II – A Kangaroo Court – Scene 1 – How Case Law Subverts the Constitution. Judge Hanen allowed that Sorola might submit a supplemental motion, and said that he was willing to hear a jurisdictional argument. AUSA Hagen was not pleased with the decision; however, dates were set for both the motion and opposition to be submitted to the Court. Continue reading

Corporate media is dying. Gallup found that 60% of Americans possess scant trust in the mainstream media to report news in 2012, and this trend has continued through 2015. Pew Research Center found last year that 65% of respondents viewed the news media negatively, and this was only superseded in terms of negativity vis-à-vis the federal government and Congress at 67% and 75%, respectively. Interestingly enough, this same Pew study also found that percentages of respondents who thought the national news media had a positive effect dropped from 31% to 25% from 2010 – 2015.

Today’s “document” REVEALS that something vaguely sinister is going down next month, which might effect the outcome of the GENERAL ELECTION!!! My “source” IMPLIED that this New Standing Order #1 was really just 1 out of 5, but he wasn’t able to secure it before he was captured by the Pentagon’s Super-Ninja-Robot-Zombie-Nazis! Much like what Diane Holthaus and Daniel Jackson have EXPOSED thus far, it is now time TO BE AFRAID, VERY AFRAID!!! Don’t believe naysayers like Cope Reynolds for being skeptical, because the “truth” is that THE SKY IS ALWAYS FALLING!!!
Click the image below to read this astounding DOCUMENT, which you must believe to be true, because if you don’t accept this PABLUM, then you’re no AMERICAN PATRIOT!!! Militiamen are advised to HIDE in their bunkers and WET THEMSLEVES IN FEAR at this time!!! YOU CAN BELIEVE ANYTHING THAT’S SAID IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS AND MULTIPLE EXPLANATION POINTS!!!
