Had a few of these related recently and is indeed most important.

Martial fantasies of battlefield valor and guerrilla glory in shoot-outs and throat-slitting sentry neutralizations aside, the ultimate success or failure of a resistance movement does not reside solely on the tactical prowess of the scared, cold guys with guns hiding out in the forests and mountains (although they are important). All the way back, through the dim, misty curtains of time, to the Maccabees, the success of a resistance movement has depended in the long term, on its ability to maintain the support functions of an active auxiliary organization.

Regardless of the initial political persuasions of the local civilian populace, in order to be ultimately successful, a resistance must gain the willing support of the civilian populace, and be able to organize that support into a coordinated, functional effort. While the active paramilitary guerrilla force is off, freezing and starving at Valley Forge, the task of developing and organizing that civilian support falls on the auxiliary (see what I did there?)

(We who are active in the Liberty movement, especially many of us in the blogosphere, like to throw out the III% label, perhaps too quickly in many cases. The reality is, while yes, only three percent of the colonials actively took the field against the British Empire at any one time, the division of support between the warring elements was closer to thirds: one-third supported the rebellion, one-third supported the Crown, and one-third just didn’t give a shit, as long as their kids were housed and fed. After all, neither Thomas Jefferson nor Benjamin Franklin ever took the field of battle during the conflict….were they somehow less dedicated to the Cause?

The job of the auxiliary is two-fold.

Senate votes 53-46 to stop US from joining UN Arms Trade Treaty

Via Steven

In the last batch of amendment votes to the budget, the Senate voted on several foreign policy proposals.

Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) introduced an amendment that would prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty in order to uphold the Second Amendment. His amendment passed on a 53-46 vote.

Republicans have been critical of President Obama’s decision to consider the treaty, although Obama has said he would not vote for anything that would violate the Second Amendment.

The U.N. Arms Trade Treaty would regulate international arms sales. Negotiations end on March 28.“We’re negotiating a treaty that cedes our authority to have trade agreements with our allies in terms of trading arms,” Inhofe said. “This is probably the last time this year that you’ll be able to vote for your Second Amendment rights.”

Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) offered an alternative amendment that clarified that under current U.S. law, treaties don’t trump the Constitution and that the United States should not agree to any arms treaty that violates the Second Amendment rights. His amendment passed by voice vote.

 Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob *Menendez (D-N.J.) said he thought it was irresponsible to be considering major foreign policy decisions at 3 a.m. on Saturday morning.

The London Economist: “A war of conquest and not of philanthropy”!B2wd5SwEWk~$(KGrHqZ,!iwE)r3QJgOwBMjue5wLVw~~_35.JPG

The British saw the quarrel between North and South for what it truly was, and were not swayed by the high-sounding morality of abolitionists -- most of them sons of New England slave-traders and mill owners who grew rich from slave labor on cotton plantations. They also learned from Lincoln’s Secretary of State William Seward that Canada was to be a target of seizure after the South was subjugated.
Bernhard Thuersam, Chairman
North Carolina War Between the States Sesquicentennial Commission
"The Official Website of the North Carolina WBTS Sesquicentennial"

Mere Lust of Dominion and Empire the Cause of War:

“The London Economist was of the opinion at this time [in early 1862] that [James] Spence’s book [The American Union] had done more “to mould into definite form the floating mass of public opinion on the right and wrong doing of the Southern States in the matter of secession” than any other work of its kind.  In his book Spence had convincingly argued the sovereign nature of the American States and their constitutional right to secede.

With even greater force he placed before the English the fundamental difference between the North and the South which made the secession of the South inescapable. The North was industrial, powerful and constantly threatening the less powerful, rural and agricultural South. But the thing which created the deepest impression was not so much the economic differences between the two sections as the racial.  

The North, according to Spence, was composed of a conglomerate, unfused mass of nationalities – Irish, German, Swiss, Swedish, Danish, Italian, Hungarian, Polish, Russian, Jewish, Roumanian, and Turkish – an inferior, mongrel people, while the South was almost pure British. This idea stuck – and even today sticks in the British mind – and the majority of the British soon felt a racial sympathy with the South which they did not have for the North. Henceforth, the bragging, swaggering, dishonest American with the nasal twang came from north of the Mason and Dixon Line.

The initial sympathy of the British people for the North because of the belief that the South had seceded to set up a slave state and that the North stood for the freedom of the slave was soon destroyed, and a strong conviction arose that the freedom of the slave was not an issue in the war. One can hardly escape the logic of events which forced this conclusion upon the British mind. During the winter of 1861….numerous compromises of the American troubles were discussed, the most important of which was the Crittenden compromise conceding a permanent share in the territories to slavery.

The [London] Economist upon hearing of such proposals spoke of the measures as iniquitous, and was not willing to believe that Lincoln would yield to them. But the final disillusionment came when in his inaugural address Lincoln said: “I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the States where it exists,…..I believe I have no lawful right to do so and have no intention to do so.”

This was, in truth, the death knell of British sympathy based upon the moral righteousness of the northern cause. If freedom was not the cause [of the North], then what was it?

The Economist late in the summer of 1861 pronounced….[the war] was not for freeing the slaves on the part of the North or preserving slavery on the part of the South, but was for dominion and power on the part of the one and the right of self government of the other. The inevitable conclusion was that the war was “a war of conquest and not of philanthropy”…..and after all the South was “only fighting for that right to choose their government.” All were now conscious that no really noble or soul-stirring cause was in any way at issue, since the abolition sentiment had “nothing to do with the quarrel and the protective tariff a great deal and the mere lust of dominion and empire more than either.”

Then if the freedom of the slave was not the issue, asked the Economist, “on what other ground can we be fairly be called upon to sympathize so warmly with the Federal cause?”

Michigan Man Fights For Right To Display Anti-Obama Signs on His Property

 Michigan Farmer Vern Verduin Fights To Keep Anti Obama Signs On His Property

A Michigan cattle farmer is fighting for the right to display two trailer-sized anti-Obama signs on his property, according to WOOD-TV.

Authorities in Gaines Township, Mich., say the massive signs on Vern Verduin’s property violate local zoning codes, which state that all political signs must be contained to 20 square feet.

The two signs, which are clearly visible from the highway, read “Marxism/Socialism = Poverty & hunger” and “Obama’s ‘mission accomplished.’ 8% unemployment. 16 trillion debt,” respectively.
“I felt that things were going in the wrong direction,” Verduin told WOOD-TV, adding that he’s concerned about hunger and poverty.

But here’s the thing: According to the same zoning ordinances, Verduin is allowed to display a sign that covers more than 20 square feet if it for the purpose of “selling ideas.” So that’s how he plans on fighting the town.

“You can have a 32-foot advertising sign. I don’t get that,” said the cattle farmer.

“This is clearly a violation of his free speech and free exercise right,” attorney Howard Van Den Heuvel added.

Girls Just Wanna Have Guns Asks Parents to Send Her Website Pics of Their Kids with Guns

Do it, I's did.:)

Get your lawyers on speed dial, because we are about to cause chaos for the Department of Youth and Family Services.

In recent news headlines, you’ve seen where a New Jersey family had the DYFS called on them because of a photo the father posted with his son and a gun on FaceBook.  The department and a couple of policemen, who were wearing bullet proof vests, entered the home with the intention to search the premises for unlawful guns (in NJ it is not required to register your guns).

Well, thankfully the father was a quick thinker and got his lawyer on the phone with the home invaders and got the department and policemen out of there fast.

To show our support for this family and our distaste for the government officials’ unlawful behavior during this event, I would like you Girls Just Wanna Have Guns insiders to submit a photo of your child or grandchild with a firearm of their choice.

We will post the photos up on the website for everyone to see and hopefully send this message to the Department of Youth and Family Services:  if they want to pick on one of us, they’re going to have to pick on all of us.

Here is what I need you to do:

Joe Biden says Gabby Giffords was “mortally wounded”


He should have gone into comedy.

Someone get Joe Biden a dictionary.

According to the Vice President, former Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords was “mortally wounded.”

“Think about what happened out in — when Gabby Giffords, my good friend, was shot and mortally wounded,” Biden said during a gun control press conference on Thursday morning.

Biden held the press conference with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, as well as family members of shooting victims. The group was pushing for what they call “common sense” gun control legislation.

Bloomberg argued that all Americans support President Obama’s gun control proposals.
“There’s no real debate among the American people,” he said.

Bloomberg and Biden should probably get their facts straight. There is an intense gun rights debate currently raging in the United States. And, Joe — Giffords didn’t die.

Senate Democrats pass $1 trillion in new taxes


An exhausted Senate gave pre-dawn approval Saturday to a Democratic $3.7 trillion budget for next year that embraces nearly $1 trillion in tax increases over the coming decade but shelters domestic programs targeted for cuts by House Republicans.

While their victory was by a razor-thin 50-49, the vote let Democrats tout their priorities. Yet it doesn’t resolve the deep differences the two parties have over deficits and the size of government.
Joining all Republicans voting no were four Democrats who face re-election next year in potentially difficult races: Sens. Max Baucus of Montana, Mark Begich of Alaska, Kay Hagan of North Carolina and Mark Pryor of Arkansas. Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., did not vote

Vice President Joe Biden’s one-day trips to Paris and London in February cost American taxpayers more than $1 million, according to multiple reports.

Biden and his security detail rung up a $585,000.50 tab for a single night on Feb. 4 at the Hotel Intercontinental Paris Le Grand, a luxurious five-star hotel near the Louvre Museum, The Weekly Standard reports.

Meanwhile, The Daily Mail in London reports that Biden’s group spent $459,388.65 for one night on Feb. 5 at the Hyatt Regency in London, where the vice president met with Prime Minister David Cameron.

The contract for the London trip specified that Biden’s crew required 136 hotel rooms for that one-night stay, The Daily Mail reports.

ECB Enacts Capital Controls, Cypriot Savings Accounts Will Remain Frozen When (if) Banks Reopen!

Via NC Renegade

Cyprus bank freeze

Germany’s Handelsblatt reports early Friday that the ECB has informed Cypriot authorities that due to a guaranteed epic bank run of their own making that will undoubtedly begin the moment Cyprus’ banks re-open, the ECB intends to enact capital controls when (if) the Cypriot banking system re-opens next week, and that the ECB intends to enforce the capital controls unilaterally!

Handelsblatt claims Cypriot Central Bank sources have stated that the ECB intends to freeze all Cypriot savings accounts indefinitely, greatly reduce the maximum amounts of ATM withdrawals, and will require Central Bank approval for all bank transfers!

 This is sure to re-instill confidence in the banking system among Greece, Portugal, Spain, Italy and the rest of the Eurozone!

If the Handelsblatt report proves true, forget 3%, 7%, 13%, or 40% haircuts…..ALL YOUR FIATS BELONG TO US!!!!

Two teen suspects arrested in shooting death of Georgia baby

Via NC Renegade


Two teenage suspects were arrested in a small coastal Georgia city a day after a baby was killed and his mom shot, authorities said Friday.

The mother, Sherry West, told FOX affiliate WAWS-TV that she was pushing her 13-month-old son, Antonio, in his stroller in Brunswick, Ga., Thursday morning, when two boys – described as about 10 and 15 years old – came up, demanded money and shot them.

Brunswick police announced Friday afternoon that they had arrested a 17-year-old and a 14-year-old, and that they were charging them with murder. The arrests came after SWAT teams had gone door to door, searching for clues, and police had checked local school attendance and absentee lists to see if there were any students who hadn't been at school that fit the description of the suspects.

West told WAWS-TV that the older boy pointed a handgun at her during the encounter Thursday."He said, 'I'm gonna kill you if you don't give me your money,' and I said, 'I swear I don't have any,'" she told WAWS-TV of the encounter. She said they wouldn't accept no for an answer."He says, 'Well, I'm gonna kill your baby,'" she told WAWS-TV, crying. "I put my arms over my baby and he shoves me. 
And then he shot my baby right in the head."
