Repost 2014: Pointers on Learning Snipercraft

 Via Oleg Volk 

Pointers on Learning Snipercraft 

So you want to learn sniping for its utility in a survival situation. Very good. A competent rifleman is quite a force, especially since we the people generally lack heavier arms than rifles these days.

Third-world tribesmen have heavier weapons but not free Americans, no Sir! So sniping it is. That worked well for the Boers…until the British went into a full-contact fight.

 The first question is: “What kind of sniping?” Police sniping doesn’t seem very relevant: it’s usually done at ranges under 60 yards for the purpose of instantly stopping hostage takers. Legitimate police sniping, that is. There’s also the Lon Horiuchi variety that follows slightly looser rules of engagement. Hunters are snipers of a kind as well: the term itself comes from wingshooting particularly fast birds. But hunting variety isn’t quite right either, as most game animals don’t shoot back. That leaves us with military sniping, the kind where the practitioner stays well away from the opponents and settles for delivering a debilitating hit without worrying about instant incapacitation. An enemy soldier or enforcer with a wide hole through the torso is out of the fight even if he eventually recovers to draw a disability pension back in the Fatherland.

Monuments According to Pliny the Younger


We will as Jeff Davis uttered before his death contend once more. The monuments; secondly, were not meant to immortalize the people though they were in retrospect people worth remembering. It was the deeds, honour, and character that the monuments bore, in which we should all strive to be and accomplish.

“To those who are ignorant of the jurisprudence of their country can have no taste for reasoning…” ~~Pliny the Younger

Gaius Plinius Caecilius Secundus was born roughly 61 A.D, to Lucius Caecilius Cilo and Plinia Marcella in a small village in Northern Italy called Como. Pliny became a Politician, a judge, an author, and a revered sage amongst the many Roman historians who have been spoken of by those who have written modern commentaries on the origins of the government that was originally intended by the American founding fathers. Constitutional historians of Americas early republic like Forrest McDonald in his “Novus Ordo Seclorum,” and Mel Bradford in his “A teaching for republicans: Roman History and the Nation’s First Identity,” have recognized the crucial importance that these figures from Roman antiquity had to the framers based on what they knew and studied. Neither reason nor experience could be challenged, because of the long history already written before them. Bradford so eloquently put, “For the gentlemen of the eighteenth century, Rome was the obvious point of reference when the conversation turned to republican theory. The Swiss, the Dutch, the Venetians and (of course) the Greek City States sometimes had a place in such considerations. And in New England the memory of the Holy commonwealth survived. Yet Rome has been the Republic, one of the most durable and impressive social organisms in the history of the world.” Rome had so much significance to the American Founders that one could have written the past, present, and future of our own republic, according the Rise and Fall of Rome as seen by Polybius in Books I and II.

Cubans Used Homemade Radios to Avoid the Internet Shutdown. Now They Are Being Jammed Too

 A man holds a sign reading "Communism is evil" during a protest showing support for Cubans demonstrating against their government, in Hialeah, Florida on July 15, 2021. - Unprecedented anti-government protests broke out in Cuba on July 11, which the single-party state leadership blames on a Twitter campaign orchestrated by …

Communist Cuba has engaged in a massive campaign of radio jamming this week in response to protesting Cuban citizens taking to the airwaves – often with homemade radios – to get news in and out of the country after the regime turned off the internet.

Cuba’s state-run telecommunications firm severely constricted the access of ordinary citizens to swathes of the internet in recent days, with social media and messaging apps all impacted. As Breitbart News reported this week, the anti-information move comes amid a rising tide of anti-government protests on the island, which are being violently repressed by the regime.

Director Oliver Stone Slams the Cancel Culture ‘Witch Hunt’ and Twitter for Banning Trump: ‘It’s Shocking!’

Former president Donald Trump has an unlikely ally in his fight against social media censorship — Hollywood director Oliver Stone.

The two-time Oscar-winning filmmaker has lashed out at Twitter over its decision to ban Donald Trump, calling the move “shocking” while also criticizing the country’s growing trend toward censorship, which is being carried out by social media companies.

Oliver Stone was responding to a question about cancel culture during an interview with Britain’s The Independent at the 74th annual Cannes Film Festival.

“Of course I despise it,” the Platoon filmmaker said. “I am sure I’ve been cancelled by some people for all the comments I’ve made…. it’s like a witch hunt. It’s terrible. American censorship in general, because it is a declining, defensive, empire, it [America] has become very sensitive to any criticism.”

He added: “What is going on in the world with YouTube and social media. Twitter is the worst. They’ve banned the ex-President of the United States. It’s shocking!”

Keeping Score: Is Fun Or Winning More Important To Youth ...

For those keeping score, this has not been America since Randy Weaver’s Ruby Ridge home was invaded by the FBI and/or U.S. Marshals in 1992, killing his wife Vickie and son Sam. For which, the U.S. Government, i.e., the U.S. taxpayer, paid $3.1 million dollars in damages. The settlement signaled that government agents were liable for the unwarranted deaths, but no one was held responsible.

The fabricated excuse was that Weaver had agreed to sell a sawed-off shotgun to a federal agent. To turn the gun-grabber narrative on its head, selling a sawed-off shotgun does not warrant execution. Shooting an unarmed woman and a boy however, does, but not where government agents are guilty.

Inflation X8: [Bacon Hits Highest Price Ever!] Now, that's Serious......:)

WATCH: Man Killed On Bicycle as Shootings Surge 29 Percent ...       

The clearest thing established by the White House's attempt to downplay the swift rise in inflation is that the Biden administration is increasingly out of touch with the American people. One of their principal arguments for not worrying about inflation was that a large portion of the rise in the Consumer Price Index was driven by just a few items related to the reopening and the big drive up in used car prices. And then, if you control for "base effects" and ignore food and energy, core inflation was just 3.1 percent, the Council of Economic Advisers tweeted this week.

Well, yes. We could do one better. If you ignore all the things that went up in price, there's no inflation at at all. Prices are falling if you ignore all those that held steady as well.

Local Chinese Communist Officials Share Video on Nuking Japan if the Country Attempts to Defend Taiwan

A video shared by official social media accounts of local Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials this week argues China could “use nuclear bombs continuously” against Japan if the country attempts to defend Taiwan from Chinese military aggression, Newsweek reported Wednesday.

“Still live on the YouTube-like platform Xigua, under an account run by the Baoji Municipal Committee of the Communist Party of China, the video calls for Beijing to launch nuclear strikes on Japan if Tokyo intervenes in a Chinese invasion of democratic Taiwan,” the U.S.-based news magazine reported July 14.

Xigua is owned by Bytedance, the same Chinese company responsible for the short form video network Tiktok.

Jesse James: American Outlaw

“We are not thieves; we are bold robbers. I am proud of the name, for Alexander the Great was a bold robber, and Julius Caesar, and Napoleon Bonaparte.” -Jesse James

Jesse James did not want to be called a thief. After all, General Ulysses Grant and his Union troops were the real thieves, having stolen everything from James’s beloved South, and Jesse did not want to be associated with the Union Army’s kind of thievery.

After the Civil War ended in defeat for the South, James began building a myth of himself as a Robin Hood. Helping his fellow Missourians who were being crushed by Northern indignations. With the help of a Southern sympathizer and publisher, James was able to build his reputation and make his claims publicly:

Destroying Our Military From Within

 Via Hal


How can troops in combat know their fellow warriors have their backs when they have been taught to distrust each other on the basis of race?

President Joe Biden and the left are doing what no adversary has ever accomplished: destroying America’s military. What has never happened from without is now happening from within. Our armed forces’ ability to deter war and conduct military operations in defense of our nation is being undermined by those responsible for readiness to accomplish these missions.

In 1986, President Ronald Reagan signed into law the Goldwater-Nichols Department of Defense Reorganization Act. It requires, inter alia, that orders for military operations must pass from the president, through the secretary of Defense and then directly to the commanders of our 11 unified combatant commands. The Joint Chiefs of Staff — the generals and admirals who head each branch of our armed forces — are not in this “chain of command,” but they are responsible for ensuring combatant commanders have adequately trained personnel, weapons and equipment to accomplish their geographic and functional missions. They are also required to provide advice to the president and Defense secretary on strategy, policy, training and readiness.

Dear Cultural Enrichers

Via Bob


We read the opinion lately from certain quarters that you think you'd like to treat whites in America like they're being treated now in Zimbabwe, and whatever South Africa eventually calls itself when the smoke clears.

Since those of you ascribing to BurnLootMurder are all mostly not even Common Core grads, just Common Core dropouts, we feel it is the White Man's Burden to explain to you, like the illiterate tribal children most of you apparently are, why exactly it was that MLK et al went with Gandhian non-violence as the only way out of Jim Crow, back 60 years ago, when it actually existed in the US.

It's because, unlike you, they'd passed 4th grade math. 

And they didn't want to be slaughtered.

Sorry to be so harsh, and hurt your pwecious feeeeeeeeewings, Snowflakes, but there it is.

You're outnumbered about 7:1. Not the other way around.
