Though I am not a Machine Gunner I am knowledgeable enough to be dangerous and when it comes to talking about the big and the bad well you come to me. Today I’m going to talk to you about the concept of a base of fire and how the machine gun fits into that. In describing this roll of the light and medium machine guns with the hope that you can understand the concept and see how you can apply to your situation and even talk about some low tech training.
Today Sarah and I go over the latest installment in the Iron Man franchise. It was fun action packed and a good time. Do enjoy because the next time you get your fix of Marvel Comics action hero will be in November of this year. I am very disappointed that the up coming Avengers lineup includes old go-tos such as Cap, and Thor but where the hell is my Hulk movie… Anyway though it’s not a mention of this in the episode there are rumors that Agent Coulson will be part of a new ADC series The Agents of Shield.
What can you expect today… well Sarah and I talk about our favorite billionaire superheros, guess who likes who and even join in the debate in the show notes if you are so inclined. and also you can see which female lead you prefere adn if you agree with Sarah
The tragedy of Boston is starting to fade quickly from the American consciousnesses there are still some bits of it that are sticking in the craw of folks like me and Glen. From Marandizing, the NDAA, WMDs and warrents to a little something about hookers. To that end I have included a few addition links that Glen and I reference so please enjoy.
(Be Advised! This is explicit!) This episode is a supplement to The Survival Podcast Episode 1122. I did this because Jack and I go stuck on a point and there were a few things that I wanted to get to but we couldn’t. As my regular listeners know I will occasionally burn the midnight oil and get a show out at the sacrifice of my sanity and that is what I did here. From the basic premise of compulsory national service I will go through the hyper sensitive nature of our new American culture and the impact of zero tolerance and what a POG is. There is a deadly impact of the lack of parenting and adequate community in our society and it is costing lives. The hard questions of what is missing and who are our leaders needs to be addressed and it needs to be done so with urgency and attentiveness. Yes, this ties back to the militia and yes I did all night on it but I hope the picture comes out clear for all of you.
The loyalty to the M-14 is as old as the argument about 7.62 versus 5.56… well in fact just as old since it was started when the M-16 replaced the 14. Though the M-14 was the shortest lived service rifle of the 20th century and in fact the shortest lived service rifle of the U.S. military it none the less is important to the story of the military’s development over the last fifty years.
I am not a fan of the term “False Flag” because it is way too broad and anything can fall under it. Another reason that I’m not too quick to believe the whole “False Flag” knee jerk response is that it gives a bit too much credit to the government for having foresight. I will say that there is a lot that needs to be answered for with Boston still and anyone that remembers back in 2009 when Air Force one did a low fly over of New York. The official pictures of that event still have not been released. As with many things of this administration and those of the past, even the smallest bit of transparency would help to alleviate some issues. But today as write this my concern is not about the federal government but a local one.
Last week the state of Massachusetts was in an uproar, and understandably so after the bombing that took place at the Boston Marathon. This, however, is no excuse for the behavior that has been shown now worldwide. As many who are long time listeners know, I am often critical of Alex Jones and some of the work done by Info Wars, but I also acknowledge when they get it right and this is one of the things that they got right.
In the attached video police can be seen brazenly violating the 4th Amendment of the people living in Watertown, Massachusetts. Though I am someone that would tell you to cooperate with police when asked for your concealed pistol license (CPL) as an act of good faith; this on the other hand is over the line. Police on official business should be given permission to search your home or place of residence when they have a warrant, never without one. This is not only advice of many attorneys but also past and present police officers. So, how do we split the difference? That is a hard question. The obvious answer being; don’t answer the door. But then what if the police make an illegal entry into your house with you in it? What recourse do you have? This is not a road I am comfortable walking down but the question needs to be asked. How to we protect our rights and keep a civil relationship with law enforcement at the same time?
The simple answer is that police need to respect the rights of the citizen more than they have demonstrated in these videos and in the incident that occurred in Temple, Texas recently. There is a mentality in some departments, especially urban departments, that the law does not apply to them or that the rights of the citizen are suspended in a time of emergency. It is our responsibility to reach out to police now, when there is no dilemma, and help them to see the type of people that live in their city. Likewise it is the job of every police officer, every Soldier, Sailor, Marine, Airman and Guardsman to think about their oaths when an order such as the one that precipitated these illegal searches is handed down and have the courage to say no.
You want the truth, and yes, you can handle the truth. We are all human and make mistakes, but law enforcement and government need to be held to a higher standard. In the movie, A Few Good Men, two Marines are convicted of “Conduct Unbecoming a Marine” for following an illegal order. The Marines are held to a higher standard and expected to question these orders. We, as the people they are sworn to protect, need to hold them to that standard. Please use this as an opportunity to talk with local law enforcement and to have a frank talk about how they view the prosecution of the searches.
Like it or not police are an important part of our communities and it is much better to count them as an ally in the happenstance that something like this occurs in your town and it is an outside agency looking to bully its way in.
Today we start of looking at the lessons that we need to learn from last week. The reality is that what happened in Boston is a glimpse into the everyday of places like Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan and Syria. America has been very fortunate when it comes to acts of terror. As those that carry weapons to face evil we also need to carry implements that can begin the healing process and help to preserve life. This is new kind of show incorporating your calls as well as emails so I hope you all enjoy.

In the last hundred years four manuscripts have been dictated through blinking. The authors used an intermediary and either used Morse code or some other form of code that was then used to create the manuscript. more famous that a book like The Diving Bell and the Butterfly is something more popular like a Brief History of Time . Stephen Hawking hasn’t spoken a word for almost three decades and yet has managed to publish more that twenty papers and challenge the notion that matter cannot be destroyed.
That said why is there a question as to whether or not Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will be able to answer questions. I have full faith in the medical community being able to make this person able to tell the world all.
We’ve overcome the Gun Dudes jamming and have made contact with the ever elusive Glen Tate. The author of the 299 Days series is a close friend and someone who’s perspective on the world I’ve come to respect a great deal. With all that has happen this last week i thing that we could all use a little bit of Glen. Now keep in mind that Mr. Tate does not have the most… sunny of dispositions today but that might have something do do with where he’s calling from but that would be a guess.
