Ran into an old friend while at the grocery store today. I hadn’t seen him in about two years. He is a teacher who used to work at my old school. He is even more into guns and self defense than I am. He is no poser. He paid his way through college as an MMA fighter and holds black belts in at least two different martial arts.

He owns more AR patter rifles than anyone else I know, and has an extensive collection of cans. His favorite shooting is distance shooting, and he loves shooting .300 Blackout. He has a couple of sweet shooting rifles.

We caught up a bit. He just graduated a school in Georgia in CQB, and we made promises to get to the range soon.

In the times we are facing, it is a good idea to have like minded friends. Ones that you have known for years, that you trust, and know aren’t Feds. We are soon going to need all the friends we can get.

You have an ally in a high place that holds the keys to hell and death.
Only those you have known for decades can be trusted in the devil’s playground or earth.

Always meet up with those an “Ally” deems important in their life.

Benedict Arnold was a proper Gentleman and trusted ally of Geroge Washington and thus was given a critical job to command an important fort.

However, Arnolds WIFE was a proper British Loyalist however quiet she was about it. Her discussions with her husband went like this “Dear, the rebellion is a fine thing and all BUT the Colonial Dollars are not accepted as pay the bills and the bill collectors are about to take our home, farm and chattels”.

You know the rest of the story. If the British has won the little war Arnold would have been a Respected General in the British Army, not a traitor.

I had an old buddy I thought kindred minds and trustable but happily I met up with his drunken wife and heard enough to make me question that trustworthiness. He had a hidden drug and money problem and was working with Feds as a part time narc.

The time is coming where betrayal will have a terrible cost.

Pray for wisdom. Proverbs 29:22 An angry man stirs up dissension, and a hot-tempered man abounds in transgression. An angry person stirs up conflict, and a hot-tempered person commits many sins. An angry person starts fights; a hot-tempered person commits all kinds of sin. A man of wrath stirs up strife, and one given to anger causes much transgression.

My trusted old buddy was that angry man and got himself into Fed troubles and sold his soul to avoid prison.

    Hear, hear! I don’t think I can top that for the best advice you’ll read on the internet today.

    Typical. Communist government putting good people in an impossible position, expecting them to self-sacrifice themselves for the greater glory of the government.

    BUT the Colonial Dollars are not accepted as pay the bills

    Meanwhile, George squashed honest money in the Whiskey Rebellion. Benedict should have killed George for treason on his way out.

      And that is why I never ascribe honorable motives to any politician. They may do something I find beneficial and agreeable to my own objectives of furthering liberty, but then they always turn around and fuck it up. It’s almost as if the things they got right were mere accidents. Almost as quickly as I might give them credit for something, I have to reacind it and level criticism instead. I no longer bother to let myself be lead into thinking “(insert random political figure) isn’t such a bad guy, maybe we can work with him.”

      Besides, most of the highly regarded members of the founding elite had something that knocked them back down a notch, or a several. Washington, Adams, Jefferson and Franklin (among others) all did things that can be justifiably and strongly rebuked.

      Then we get into later shitheads like lincoln, that pituitary dysfunctioned, constitution wrecking sumbitch. And yet people still worship him as a hero and maintain monuments in his honor.

      Real allies are hard to find, and even harder to trust.

I am, and shall remain, a lone wolf.

I may take a .gov position that contrary to what I actually will be doing, will officially make me a Fed Police boyyo, get 3 weeks of training at Quantico (1 week each of pistol, carbine and shotty) and hopefully plenty of training ammo. I might be eligible for special teams – looking at HRT as sub MOA to 300 yards when in tune but my contract may say otherwise. As things get worse, the .gov armory may be source for home defense ammo. Do not judge a book by its cover… there are likely other .govs who can be sources of intel…. Kith and kin for safety; lone wolves tend towards marauding….
