A Time to Kill

Here’s something I got a while back from a student that I thought expressed the stances & convictions of those I know:

I am a soldier.  I know what war looks like, what it sounds like, smells like, what it feels like in my soul.

I stand today in the twilight of my nation’s grace, looking into the darkness of impending war.  

My sleep is troubled, knowing what awaits, yet the ignorant and the ‘true believers’ sleep easily in their delusions, and I am saddened by it.

Daily, I see the Blackhawk and Apache helicopters flying over my city, the military vehicles which appear so frequently now on our roads, often with ‘guns up’ in violation of Posse Comitatus, and I know why they prepare, that it is not far off.

Nightly I hear the report of gunfire near my home, the noise angry men make as they prepare to boil over.  These are not soldiers – they are but angry men.  And though I share their well-justified anger, I am cautious with them, for they are not disciplined, and they know not the face of war, nor the burdens it imposes upon mind, body, and soul.  Because of this, they are dangerous, and I am saddened by this – that dangerous men should roam the streets near my home, full of anger and the lust for vengeance.

All about me are the ceaseless murmurs of soulless politicians and media propagandists, who wear their agendas on their sleeves as a badge of superiority, and the boundless echoes of their contrived ‘message’ assaults me from all sides, even repeated from the mouths of dear friends, and I am saddened by it.

I bear witness to the fact that throughout my lifetime, the lifeblood of my republic has been drained away by greedy and self-serving men, from high to low, who contrive nought but deception against their neighbors and countrymen, and who fail to consider that their children and mine shall share the same fate, the same future, and I am saddened by it.

But I am a soldier, and I know what must be done; and so I shall put away my sadness and I shall harness up the bitter steed of war, and gird myself up for the battle; and I shall ride out to meet the enemies of Liberty; not in rage, not for anger sake or the hope of vengeance; but because I swore an oath before God, to jealously guard our Republic and its Constitution against all enemies; Him I shall not disappoint, for He is my Hope and my Trust.

Therefore, as much as my soul laments against the harsh truth before me, I make this declaration to my enemies who press me into this battle, that none shall be able to afterwards say “I did not know, you did not warn me”;

I do not care why you took that job with the government, or why you continue to hold it.  I only know that you have become Judas and sold yourself to an oppressive state – your government office buildings and vehicles are part of the battlefield, and as a soldier I shall act accordingly.

I do not care why, as a journalist, you choose to spin and corrupt the news, rather than report the plain truth and let the people judge for themselves.  I only know that you have violated the public trust in the most vile and seditious manner, and thus your homes, offices, studios, vehicles, and any other place you may find yourself are part of the battlefield, and as a soldier I shall act accordingly.

I do not care why you signed that union card.  I only know that you pay dues to a communist organization which conducts treasonous works against my Republic daily – and so your union hall and your work-sites are part of the battlefield, and as a soldier I shall act accordingly.

I do not care that you only voted for the traitor because you are elderly/disabled or otherwise dependent upon government largess.  Are you so ignorant and/or disinterested that you could not see through their propaganda, to the fact that your sustenance was assured either way?  What have you gained now that the public housing areas you live in, and the public facilities you depend on are part of the battlefield?  Though I am a soldier, I can afford you little protection, for you have placed yourselves on the battlefield.

I know that all of these places and all of these people are part of the battlefield ,not just because I am a soldier, and have experienced a few battlefields in my day; but also because our President declares that even our own homes are on the battlefield, whether we wish them to be or not, and I have no choice but to believe him; it’s not just that the NDAA passed – a battlefield is not defined by law; it’s the profound build-up of martial power and resources across my once-great nation which tells me a battle is being prepared here.  Over two billion rounds of ammunition procured by DHS and its sub-agencies in the past 18 months, plus machine guns in the tens of thousands, armored vehicles, combat aircraft, drones, and other implements of war being staged throughout our nation, our home – how do you explain that except as the preparation for battle?

I will fight not because I desire it, but because I cannot justify any other course of action – when the enemy attacks, you must fight – you must kill or you will die.

I smell you, my enemy; I can feel the ambush you have laid for me and my true countrymen, all about like a sticky spider’s web, yet we will not back down, and though you will kill some of us, you will not get us all before we have finished with you.

I stand here, ready, on the eve of battle, and I ask God why I have been brough to the threshold of this battlefield, about to be thrust in, when I though my soldiering days were through; and I am reminded that there is by His decree, a Time to Kill, as well as a Time to Die…  who am I to question why?

Saddle up, boys, it’s time to ride out and meet them.

For those who are willing, simply comment with the words “I will stand”, that the enemies of Liberty may know what they face, and perhaps relent – it is our duty first to serve peace, even if to do so we must make war.

~Those who abuse Liberty sentence themselves to Death~

Pretty much says it all for me & most of my students.

  1. I WILL STAND-for my country, to restore the republic, for the sake of my grandchildren, and their children in generations to come. I WILL STAND in any way that I can fill a need. Saddle up!

  2. I will stand against our common enemies, but the attack on union members goes a bit too far for me.

    “I do not care why you signed that union card. I only know that you pay dues to a communist organization which conducts treasonous works against my Republic daily.”

    Unions were formed to prevent people from being enslaved and killed by rich bosses who usually controlled local police forces too. There’s nothing wrong with Americans joining forces to preserve their lives, and why you call them “communists” and their work “treasonous” is beyond comprehension. I’m a union carpenter. How is that treasonous?

    There were unions that were formed by communists (I.W.W.), but that’s no different than any other form of political infiltration, and it’s silly to project that same image to millions of hard-working Americans who stuck together in a battle against an oppressive power.
    Most unions are no more “communist” than your militia group, and to suggest that we’re all doomed to fighting powerful evil forces as individuals is as stupid as you taking up arms by yourself against an army.

    Unions were formed so workers could join forces against the same people we’re fighting today, only now the enemy has become more powerful, and union-busting was one of the tools that gave them that power, and also gave millions of Mexicans more incentive to come here. (bone-head)

    1. Labor unions are socialist by definition and have never been necessary in this country except to the extent that our people have been ignorant as to who they are and where their power lies.
      If we the people realize that we are the owners of this country and all of its resources, our entrepreneurship and the free exercise thereof, being financed by our resources, would insure that any one of us that worked for the other would enjoy the highest standard of living.
      I guess it comes down to being able to think for oneself and act accordingly. If we all are of the mind that we will have our rights absolute, we can absolutely accomplish that, as individuals. But we have to do it, instead of looking for someone else, or paying someone else to do it for us.
      Remove all the foreigners from within our borders and return the stolen wealth and the socialist unions are no longer necessary. Communism is always built upon dependency, as in getting someone else to do your fighting for you.
      It can be argued that labor unions have held our standard of living, such as it is to date, but even at that, the whole system is a fraud and over all the years of the labor unions, we have not received a drop in the bucket of that which belongs to us.

      1. Well isn’t a militia just as “socialist by definition” because your fellow soldiers are fighting for you?
        Unions were founded by the rank and file doing the actual fighting, and it was the same type of fighting we’ll encounter again.
        I understand how unions were corrupted, and that happened exactly how our government became corrupted, basically by the members not being “eternally vigilant” as to where the money was going and how it was being spent, but that’s like saying our constitution is bad because Americans became lazy.
        And unions were definitely necessary for anyone to be paid a fair price for their labor, work in a safe place, and have a day off at the end of the week because there was no other recourse at the time.
        It was labor unions that ended slavery in this country, and unity is the only weapon people had against it, just like unity is the only weapon we have today in our present struggle. No amount of awareness regarding who owns this country is going to stop what our government is doing now unless this awareness is coupled with a united front, and labor unions were up against the identical battle a hundred years ago.
        Saying we didn’t need unions then is like saying we don’t need militias now. United we stand, divided we fall. Who wants to take on the army alone?

        1. No, the militia is not socialist in the smallest degree, that is the people’s militia. And no, I do not expect anyone to fight for me. What I do expect is for them to fight for their own rights or get out because to fail to fight is to acquiesce, to aid and abet.
          Now, just to keep this conversation in perspective, my mom grew up in a coal camp with company script that could only be spent at the company store. My grandfather fought in the Union Wars and he did so, like the rest, because he was too f#@king dumb to realize who he was and how to act as an individual.
          We own this country, lock, stock, and barrel, but if we follow your line of reasoning, once we have reacquired our Republic and our resources, we should go to work for labor unions for whatever small portion of our wealth they will offer us. Thanks, but I’ll pass.
          How many Americans have acquiesced to infringements via labor union contracts? When was the last time you were told to prove your innocence by pissing in a bottle?
          If our Bill of Rights is enforced absolute, there can be no collectives with any power over the individual, as the very idea is repugnant to that of individual freedom and liberty. And of course if we as individuals enforce our rights, labor unions would be impotent and absolutely unnecessary as we would possess our resources as individuals and thus set the terms as individuals for their extract and manufacture. As we individuals would control the wealth of this nation, we would purchase whatever services we desired and absolutely nothing more.
          I hold you in high esteem, yet I tell you, to say we have to have labor unions is to say we have to surrender some of our sovereignty as individuals to prosper.
          As for the corporations stealing our resources and labor, make them stop stealing and punish their crime, which is a simple feat for an individual to accomplish in a common law court. You see a corruption causing a deprivation and your answer is surrender a little liberty and let someone else deal with it.
          Trotsky, in 1917, was right here in America pushing for a socialist revolution and the labor unions were his foothold because, by God, they are socialist by definition.
          There is a 1981 movie called, “Reds” which is a pretty accurate depiction of the system you are defending.
          Now I will say to remove labor unions without having regained our individual control first would be foolish. I guess what has to be considered here is just how absolute our we going to be about this matter of inalienable rights. I cannot take another person’s rights and no one can take mine, though I can surrender or fail to enforce my rights in compliance with a collective opinion that it is the best thing to do. But of course no surrender would be necessary if the problem were eliminated.
          Unions do not eliminate the problem, they just leave a situation wherein a portion of a man’s sweat goes to another man to buy off another man in order to make the problem a lessor one.

  3. I understand what most unions have become, and members’ apathy is largely the reason, just as that same apathy has destroyed America. However, when they were formed they were doing the exact same thing the militia movement is doing, and they were doing it against the exact same enemies. They were banding together to fight a powerful enemy, and banding together was the only chance they had of success, just as none of us can take on the government by ourselves.
    My ancestors also fought in the union wars, and if yours eventually joined the united mine workers union, they probably knew some of mine.
    But look at the situation we’re in right now. We’re not too dumb to understand what we own and who we are as individuals, and neither was your grandfather, but there’s not much any of us can do to change our situation unless we work together (form a union).
    I’ll concede that most modern labor unions are very socialist, but that’s a problem of socialists infiltrating the labor movement, and using it toward their own ends. Without unions, you’d probably be working in the same mine as your grandfather, but for less pay now that the Mexicans are here.
    I also don’t say that we have to have labor unions, only that they were necessary in their inception, and the only means of survival for many people a century ago. They exist today just as the US government does; they’re a perverted form of what was once a good thing, but as they’ve been destroyed for the most part, we also see the return of people having to work longer hours, no overtime pay, sacrifice their weekends off, and generally submit to more of their bosses tyranny.
    The fact of unions being far from perfect is no reason to open fire on union members, and modern labor unions have only fallen victim to the same corruption that will always be found wherever there’s money and power, but the militias today are banding together to fight the same enemies the unions did a hundred years ago.
    Back then the bosses controlled local governments, just as many of the same corporations now control our national government. We’re in a continuation of the same battle, but since the corporate powers are also seeking to destroy the constitution to enslave us, it’s become a Patriotic war as well as a labor struggle.

    1. The only true reason there has ever been for unions is ignorance. It has always been the few oppressing the many. You are right when you say the people originally united as individuals. And you are also correct when you say that as soon as their power was realized, they were corrupted and taken over. We will never have true freedom until we have complete enlightenment.
      My grandfather was a member of the United Mine Workers’ Union and when last I spoke to him, many many years ago, he told me he was seeing the present generation ceding all that had been gained.
      Kind of like after our Revolution. Those who do not fight for something do not hold it at as high a value as those who do. What we are going to have to figure out is that the war for freedom and liberty never ends. There are lulls in the firing but the state of war stands as the psychopathic parasites who believe they can own other human beings are relentless, hence, teach your children well and never let any government get involved in that education.
      We must stand as individuals for as long as humanly possible and let our natural leaders emerge in battle if we are to stay uncorrupted, at least until the next cease fire.

      1. yep… “eternal vigilance is the price of freedom”
        It does never end. That’s why we’re here, I guess. One thing we have to teach the next generation is to never take their eyes off anyone controlling money or power.

        “he told me he was seeing the present generation ceding all that had been gained” — he was probably looking at the corrupted version of his union selling out the members.


    Since its creation, one of FEMA;s main functions has been to oversee the construction of underground bunkers. Hundreds of these things have been built across the nation, many are also connected through networks of underground tunnels.. These bunkers are typically located just outside of population centers. Coordinates of their locations are fairly easy to find on the internet. I recommend identifying these locations in your area ASAP. It may not be possible to locate these areas if you end up loosing internet access.

    Those who plan to make war on the American people have used our tax dollars to construct and stockpile these refuges with food and supplies. After creating civil unrest, they intend to hide out in comfort and safety, leaving the general population to fend for themselves.

    These “continuity of government” locations are not intended for the continuity of OUR government. They are intended to provide safety for the criminals who are currently controlling our government. Once the dust settles, they plan to slither out of these bunkers and establish authoritarian rule.

    These locations are the true battlefields.

    1. Mark, do you have any links to these bunkers (D.U.M.B.’s) to make our searches quicker. I have seen plenty of maps but they just seem to be closed military bases with no actual proof of a underground base or a FEMA Camp. I mean here in Yuma, we are home to one of the Japanese interment camps, and supposedly there are underground bases. But, I never see proof. I can’t even find a local who can actually show me “Exactly” where the old Jap camps were, especially since they have supposedly been rebuilt. Not that I doubt it at all. Like, I used to live by Denver International Airport and you could see the piles of dirt that was coming out of it when they built it.

  5. As far as I know, the Japanese internment camps from WWII have nothing to do with this issue. I believe that most of those camps were located on Indian reservations (which were essentially internment camps as well)

    The following camps were located in Arizona:
    Gila River, which was divided into Canal Camp and Butte Camp.
    Poston (aka Colorado River), which was divided into three separate camps — I, II, and III.

    There was also at least one temporary detention center in Mayer. This site was previously occupied by the Civilian Conservation Corp.

    Most of these sites are clearly identified with historical monuments. For more information, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poston_War_Relocation_Center#Poston_Today

    Regarding the FEMA camps. The camps that everyone seems to want a physical address of so they can see for themselves. Several of these sites have been positively identified, and they look pretty much like the average state prison. Visiting one of these places will not “prove” anything. The proof is all around you, just open your eyes.

    Most people also fail to realize how rapidly a detainment center can be established. Using modular assemblies, an experienced work crew can easily transform an empty field into a prison camp in a single day.

    RE: Denver international airport. One of the main COG sites is located under this airport. This is the reason for the dedication plaque in the airport lobby that states some rubbish about the location being the western sector of the new world order.

    I believe the document at the following location will help you find what you are looking for:

  6. I once had a list of the previously mentioned locations, however that was several computers ago and no longer have a copy of it. I first read about this in the mid 1990’s, so it did not seem all that important at the time.

    Most of the locations were published by Harry Martin of the Napa Sentinel back in 1992 . I was able to find one of those articles here:
