May FTX will commence at 0900 on the 20th and run until 1600 on the 21st.  Training items will cover the revised three-day pack packing list and the revised Area of Operations map, in addition to the regular Map Reading and Compass work.  Also please review the 10 minute video from Max on Range Safety.




One topic of note is the pair of North Korean satellites, KMS-3 and KMS-4, that are commonly speculated to be EMP devices.  In a report from this time last year, James Woolsey,  former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, and Peter  Fry, executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security commented:


“Senior Russian generals warned EMP Commissioners in 2004 that their EMP nuclear warhead design leaked “accidentally” to North Korea, and unemployed Russian scientists found work in North Korea’s nuclear weapons program.”


And before that, in 2011 the U.S. Army War College released a report entitled, “In the Dark: Military Planning for a Catastrophic Critical Infrastructure Event”.  That document for-told of North Korea’s ability to send just a simple, inefficient, low-yield type nuclear device our way to detonate somewhere in that magic 30 – 100 mile region over (preferably) the Eastern Seaboard.  The resulting EMP wouldn’t directly kill anybody but the resulting societal and economic collapse would be witness to possibly millions of deaths.  Details in the story from The Hill here.  Check on the satellite positions here.  Hope you have your gardens in already.







Back on this side of the globe, the Left is still working hard to perfect their brand of street thuggery, in hopes of destabilizing the government and otherwise causing so much chaos as to make the country ungovernable.  Not sure why this is not seen clearly as sedition, and dealt with accordingly.  But make no mistake, this is not just another lefty blight on the left coast.  These groups are in every state and on a lot of college campuses (ground zero for free speech and thought – not any more)  and make extensive use of social media to promote and promulgate their ideology.  (Maltego users take note…)   Progressivism might be considered Communism Lite, but these guys read more like RFB Communist instigators in the latter days of the  Weimar Republic and even have borrowed some of the symbolism from that period.  If only those same colleges and universities still taught Western Civilization 101.







This flyer is not atypical of these people.  It does lack even the smallest attempt at wry wit or sarcasm.  Could mean they’re a bit deficient in the humor department.  Schadenfreude coming up in 3…2….1.






You can always check with Oath Keepers for updates on these activities.  Won’t be any links to follow back to the “hives of scum and villainy” from here, but there is this one document that you should have a look at, not so much for what it says about group, but as a lesson towards what they might have in common with some militias as far as objectives and training go.  Could have stole some of that from here.  Who knows.
