Secure Your Cards

Uncategorized Jun 18, 2018

As technology plows ahead it's easy to see that just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should or that it's a good idea. When it comes to money, the first big issue we faced as America was central banks, which are unconstitutional. Then came fiat currency. Then came digital products like credit cards and debit cards. These all had their own problems. Then a few short years ago the banking system decided to put chips in credit and debit cards, allegedly for security. What the consumer immediately noticed was that transactions now take four times longer than before. What security minded people knew long before was that was that chips are not more secure, they're less secure. 

The issue with data storage on cards we carry on us is that it can be accessed. You might pint out that this is the whole point of having cards. But the problem is that if the wrong person gets access to that information, you're in for a world of hurt and instant poverty. Cards have just made it...

The Primacy of Natural Law and Universal Morality

Uncategorized Jun 16, 2018

 

The picture above illustrates the amount of power and influence each level is supposed to hold. It does not represent the primacy of government. 

One of the most common fallacies surrounding morality is that morality comes from "god" and religion, especially the Abrahamic religions of the Middle East (Judaism, Catholicism, Christianity & Islam). Catholicism in particular, to include the Anglican sects, is perhaps the greatest and most vociferous offender. Their argument is very straightforward: Without the god of Abraham as interpreted by their particular religious sect's interpretations, there can be no morality because people will not have been taught morality; because they claim there is no other way to know what is right or wrong. According to these folks, humans are so flawed, stupid, and incompetent that they simply must have these teachings or they will be murderous savages and chaos will reign. This of course, is not, never has been, and never will be...

The Moral Standard

Any serious student of humanity knows that the root of all is natural law, and that when we seek to define how we should act in this world, universal morality, otherwise known as nature's morality, is the answer. The reason for this is that when we look out into the world and seek to solve the problems of war, slavery, equality, and so on, only morality can solve these problems. But why?

The root word of morality is moral, and according to Webster's 1828 dictionary it is: 

"In general, moral denotes something which respects the conduct of men and their relations as social beings whose actions have a bearing on each others's rights and happiness, and are therefore right or wrong, virtuous or vicious; as moral character; moral views; moral knowledge; moral sentiments; moral maxims; moral approbation; moral doubts; moral justice; moral virtue; moral obligations, etc. Or moral denotes something which respects the intellectual powers of man, as distinct form his physical powers....

Gold On The Run

Uncategorized Jun 10, 2018

If you've ever done any substantial work in the SERE field you know that at some point money becomes a necessity. During the WWII and the cold war pilots and special operations forces sometimes carried little packages of gold coins. The picture below shows an old Navy SERE kit component consisting of gold coins and rings. The idea is simple. Trade gold for food, goods, accommodations, silence, assistance, etc... 

Of course... This didn't come without some problems, especially that of "lost" gold. The problem got so bad that the practice was restricted to only the most dangerous missions where the chances of becoming isolated and unrecoverable were better than average. Another measure put in place was survival kits were sewn into harnesses and inspected before and after any flight. This way no one could claim that they must have "misplaced" a couple thousand dollars in gold. 

The practice faded out, probably for good reason, and was replaced by the blood chit program which...

What Does It Mean To Be An American?

Uncategorized May 28, 2018

This morning a close friend asked me to tackle the question, “What does it mean to be an American?” It seems he encountered a leftist woman on the offense in Southern California, and this made him realize that he lacked the civics knowledge to properly respond. It’s a critical topic for American Defence to tackle, so here we go!

In the technical sense, to be an “American” is to be a citizen of the republic of the United States of America. Noah Webster, founder of Webster’s dictionary, was one of the authors and signers of the US Constitution. In his 1828 original dictionary the word citizen is defined as:

  1. The native of a city, or an inhabitant who enjoys the freedom and privileges of the city in which he resides; the freeman of a city, as distinguished from a foreigner, or one not entitled to its franchises.
  2. In the United States, a person, native or naturalized, who has the privilege of exercising the elective franchise, or the qualifications...

The Times, They Are Changing...

Uncategorized May 25, 2018

The past couple of months have been stunning to those of us old professional soldiers. We have seen more changes in the DOD over the past 2-4 months than we have seen since WWII. Obviously the overt difference is not yet as profound as going from the P-51 to the F-22, but on an institutional "deep state" level, it's very much that significant and more. 

One of the things we are seeing is a flood of new weapons and calibers that very much restore lethality to the warfighter. I personally spent 20 years crusading for these sorts of changes only to run up against the DOD bureaucrats again and again. In short, I lost a great deal of my sanity going absolutely nowhere. Being so intimately familiar with the process, it stuns me now to see the DOD adopting and buying new weapon systems literally overnight. The Army has a new pistol, SOCOM has picked up the 6.5mm Creedmoor, the big Army and SOCOM are playing with a .338 Norma Magnum machine gun, the Marine Corps just bought the M27,...
