GroundRod Level One Course in Montana

We will be having a GroundRod One course in Bozeman, MT September 7-8.

As I am sure everyone has noticed, there have been many developments in the last few months in the internet space, much of it not good. Free speech is under heavy and constant attack. Those in the patriot/conservative community are being deplatformed and silenced at an alarming rate. The Marxist left is trying desperately to control the information space and so far is doing a pretty good job of it. The skills learned in the GroundRod digital tradecraft series are more important now than ever. Things are changing rapidly, don't get left behind.

Improving Your Pistolcraft... (repost)

Between the rifle and the pistol, I will generally spend more training time on the pistol. There are a couple reasons for this...

1) All things being equal, it takes more skill to be consistently accurate with a pistol than with a rifle - the rifle having the benefit of a longer sight radius (or optics) and the inherent stability that comes with a stocked firearm. (Not to mention the weight-to-trigger pull ratio disparity with a pistol).

2) Unless you are a rifleman deployed on the battlefield, you are going to spend the lion's share of your time armed with a pistol. Walking through the local supermarket with a rifle slung across your chest tends to get the locals excited.

3) Pistols fire a relatively weak projectile compared to rifles in general and thusly, may require more follow-on hits to get the job done; making recoil management, sight tracking and reload skills a must.

Here are some of the key training factors I always try to hit on every time I train:

1)Engagement speed. In it&…

Welcome To The Panopticon, or "How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love Information Warfare"

So it's 2019......and so far we have:

- Twitter, Facebook, Youtube and the like, de-platforming or censoring any content that leans towards the right or conservative side.

- Amazon, Google, Apple, Microsoft, et al, doubling down on collection of people's data.

- The US intelligence apparatus convincing major hotel chains (Marriot for one) to collect information and report on hotel guests (for the most trivial of "abnormalities", if one can call them that).

- Amazon working with law enforcement to implement widespread facial recognition gathering.

- Those nifty DNA/ Heritage testing sites have been caught giving your DNA to Uncle Sam.

- Cellular providers selling your real-time location to anyone who wants to buy it.

- The proliferation of "smart" devices such as Alexa that is always listening.

- Web browsers screening the news you search for and only letting the "leftist" slanted news through.

I could go on for pages and pages, but you get the …
