Dealing With Aggressive Violence – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 24, 2018

As I have noted in the past, the best place to start in preparing yourself for self defense is Principals of Personal Defense by Jeff Cooper. It is short, sweet and, if you are lucky, a free PDF on somewhere the web.

As in most things, don’t rely on government for protection. Just the opposite.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2018/02/jim-campbell/674072-2/

This, then, is the practical solution for dealing with aggressive violence:

1. Accept that it is impossible to eliminate the means to inflict harm.
2. Accept that some people will seek to harm others.
3. Create in yourself and other decent people the ability to respond to predators with overwhelming counter violence.

History shows us that when people do not have the means to defend themselves, they will eventually suffer atrocities.

The moral argument is more cut and dried:

A human being is the absolute owner and sovereign over their body. As such, they have an absolute and inalienable right to defend themselves from aggression by others, by ANY means available or necessary, as long as those means do not harm other innocent people around them.

Chung Kuo | International Man

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 24, 2018

http://www.internationalman.com/articles/chung-kuo
The Chinese absolutely resent the U.S. government parading its aircraft carriers off the China coast as if it owned the place. The U.S. government is not showing strength, it’s displaying arrogance and stupidity by antagonizing a sleeping dragon. And the thought of American politicians—which is to say an assortment of insular lawyers, eggheaded wannabe social engineers, and refugees from Arkansas trailer parks—negotiating with people who’ve been through what the Chinese have, is just scary.

Fix Bayonets! – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 24, 2018

So you don’t understand war…oops defense policy-Follow the money.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2018/02/eric-margolis/fix-bayonets-lets-attack-china-and-russia/

Which brings us back to General ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis. He is quite right that so-called terrorists (that’s anyone who actively opposes the Lex Americana) pose no real life or death threat to the US mainland.

But if so, how then to maintain the $1 trillion US military budget? Well, of course, trot out those good old ‘Reds Under Our Beds.’ Actually, the Pentagon has been planning a new war with China for the past three years, a mainly air and naval conflict to dominate China’s coasts and seas. The Pentagon is loading up on new aircraft, missiles, satellites and naval craft for the next Pacific War, and trying to enlist India as an ally against China.

7 Reasons to Shut Down Public Schools Immediately and Permanently | The Daily Bell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 23, 2018

http://www.thedailybell.com/news-analysis/7-reasons-to-shut-down-public-schools-immediately-and-permanently/

Students plan to walk out of schools to protest gun violence. They say they won’t return until lawmakers do something to address school shootings.

The students should walk out and never return. Being sitting ducks for gun violence is one reason, but it is far from the only one.

1. Students Are Left Defenseless

It’s not just crazy gunmen students are left defenseless against. Some schools put cops in the school, which sounds like a good idea. But if they aren’t stopping school shootings, they are generally handcuffing non-resistant elementary school students. Other “resource officers” assault the students, or taze them while the Principal holds them downRead the rest of this entry »

Illinois governor drinks chocolate milk to demonstrate his commitment to diversity

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 23, 2018

 

This guy is dumb enough for a dozen normal persons, or one Illinois politician.

There aren’t many people that make Joe Biden look like a genius.

http://www.sacbee.com/news/politics-government/national-politics/article201589004.html

In an awkward onstage appearance this week, Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner drank a glass of chocolate milk to demonstrate his belief in diversity.

“It’s really, really good,” Rauner said after taking a sip of the sugary drink. “Diversity!”…

Report: Police Were Warned That Nikolas Cruz Allegedly Used Guns Against Others Prior to School Attack

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 23, 2018

Are we really expected to look toward government, at any level, for our safety?

The PBCSO took no action against Cruz. Much like the school’s resident sheriff’s deputy who took no action against Cruz.

The bottom line is the cops just didn’t want to be bothered. The progressives don’t want us to be able to protect ourselves. This is their grand, elegant solution.

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/02/22/police-warned-nikolas-cruz-allegedly-used-guns-others-prior-school-attack/

CNN reports that the day after Thanksgiving 2017, PBCSO was called and told that Cruz had allegedly hidden a gun in the backyard of a family with which he was staying. Deputies conducted a search, then wrote up the incident as “domestic unfounded.”…

Nobody Wants to Talk About What Many Mass Shooters Have in Common

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 23, 2018

http://theantimedia.org/mass-shooters-common/

Written by 

 In the aftermath of yet another mass shooting in the United States, the internet and broadcast news alike are inundated with commentary about why this keeps happening in America. Some blame guns, others blame mental health, and still others confidently blame false flag events and crisis actors.

 But one commonality among numerous mass killings in the United States remains absent from these conversations. It is always reported when details of the shooter are published, but the widespread connection is rarely acknowledged: A mounting number of mass shooters have ties to the military, including Nikolas Cruz, who was a member of his school’s military prep organization, JROTC (Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps).

Should Teachers Be Armed? – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 23, 2018

WARNING! Free market, Austrian-Libertarian economic analysis.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2018/02/michael-s-rozeff/should-teachers-be-armed/

Should teachers be armed? This question is premature. In today’s monopoly law enforcement systems funded by forced extractions of money from taxpayers, lawmakers will answer this question. There will be public debate, such as is now occurring. Lawmakers will hear the arguments and they will decide. Their decisions will, however, not be according to criteria that relate directly to the welfare of the children of their citizens. The incentives faced by lawmakers will not create such a connection in the clarity that the citizens demand. The system is bound to frustrate the citizens. Read the rest of this entry »

Cop Was Present During Entire High School Shooting and Did Nothing

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 23, 2018

What is the difference between this and rolling up in an APC dressed in a soldier wanna-be suit and “securing the area” until the shooting stops?

http://theantimedia.org/cop-present-high-school-shooting/

Written by 

An armed officer on campus during last week’s mass shooting in Florida “never went in” the building to confront the killer, the Broward County Sheriff told reporters at a news conference on Thursday.

 Sheriff Scott Israel said Deputy Scot Peterson, the resource officer at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, opted instead to take up position outside the building for “upwards of four minutes.” Read the rest of this entry »

A Common Culture – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 23, 2018

For many immigrants to the US the only common culture they care about is theirs. The US is to be remade in their image.

That is why we must suffer La Raza and CAIR.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2018/02/linh-dinh/a-common-culture-makes-the-nation/

A people can endure any travails if they still have a common culture and history. With these snuffed out, there’s no nation left to save. Just ask yourself, Who have the means and desire to hollow out America? What are their final aims?
