Here at the III Percent, we try to undertake important, large-scale endeavors only after allowing you to weigh-in and help shape the discourse and direction.
No man alone is the III. We are all equals. We share our successes and our challenges.
- You helped us tailor the message we put on radio stations across America.
- You helped us decide Idaho was the proper place to settle the Citadel. You now are actively helping us establish a safe place – for III Patriots, for Tribe – to settle in Idaho.
- You helped us launch III Arms, a firearms company helmed by one of the most trusted, talented, and patriotic men I have ever had the honor to know – Jim Miller.
- You helped us travel the country offering CQB training to groups from coast-to-coast and border-to-border, all the while deepening ties among the Patriots we met along the way.
- Through III Gear, you helped us provide patches, caps, shirts, tactical gear, and much more to thousands of Patriots, all to build cohesion and IFF (the ability to identify friend from foe).
- You helped promote and make Brock's PatCons incomparable events for Patriot gatherings.
- You helped us host the first Citadel PatCon in Idaho last year - with the next already scheduled for this August.
- III Patriots were there last October in DC so our WWII Veterans could visit THEIR Memorial.
- III Patriots were there when Barry-cades were dropped at the front and rear gates of the White House.
- III Patriot allies helped us plant roots in the Western Redoubt and helped us prep to open a III business.
- III Patriots, and the work WE are doing as a group, is the only reason the Kerodin name has been featured in nearly every major media outlet in the Western World. Granted - that media has been, shall we say, unkind ;)
- It is also because of you that several of us were featured for a full hour on Beck's TV show. That does not happen unless you are playing at a dangerous level.
There is much, much more!
You have been responsible for every significant step forward made by the III community.
Now it is time, once more, to ask you to lend your voice, your wisdom, your support, and your cautions as you see fit.
It is imminent that future Bundy-type confrontations will occur. The consensus is that OpFor will be far more prepared next time; they may even bait as many Patriots as possible onto the field, before unleashing Hell upon them all. The Regime must save Face. The Regime must remind the masses that the Regime must be obeyed.
Are you and I to tremble at the prospect of Regime Forces with standing orders to murder us at the next event? Are we to yield the field and simply allow Regime Forces free reign to shoot down, beat and Taser fellow Americans who dare stand tall on behalf of the next Cliven Bundy? Are we to hide safely in our homes?
If you and I are as we claim to be - American Patriots, American Militia worthy of standing alongside Captain John Parker – then we have but one course open to us. You and I must charge TOWARD the sound of gunfire. Throat-punch Regime thugs who seek to infringe the Liberty of our Countrymen.
You and I must never be the good men who do nothing. May God himself smite us all if we fail to do our duty.
At the PatCon this past weekend we fleshed out the basics of our strategy and tactics on this front. We concluded that the most critical tactical element of all future Bundy Events is to collect audio, stills, video (including interviews) and Intelligence on OpFor from the ground and get it out to our allies to disseminate that information to the world. We must deny the Regime and their MSM Propaganda Bureau sole control of the message. Images like the line of Cowboys and Patriots facing-off in the wash against BLM, the now iconic image of the Patriot on overwatch from the bridge, the images of BLM using Tasers and dogs against unarmed Americans, the images of the "First Amendment Areas" - these media elements made it impossible for BLM and the Regime to win at Bundy.
Yes, the Regime could have won the physical confrontation at Bundy. But they would have lost the first fight - BLM would have been slaughtered. Then the Regime would have had to go hard with Militia and singular Patriots using overwhelming ground and air assets - and they would have "won" - but only after slaughtering hundreds of Americans. Over cows and unpaid fines.
Next time will be different. You know it. We know it. The Regime is already preparing it.
So what does the III intend to do about it?
This post is already long enough, so I am going to close with a very quick thumbnail that I will flesh out over the coming days.
The Mission (the Commander's Intent) is very specific: Arrive-on-scene and ensure the truth gets out of the AO in audio, and video, including interviews, to off-site allies who will be responsible for disseminating that Intelligence to deny the Regime the ability to lie to the American people.
FIRST: We are establishing a special nationwide unit of III Patriots. We are calling this unit our "Liberty Support Team." (This unit stands independent of our III 300 - though III 300 Patriots are welcome to join the Liberty Support Team.)
SECOND: I think Holly and I have proven that – for the sake of the III – we are willing to take point. Taking point also means we take the heat. We are about to do it again. We have put ourselves in Harm’s Way before. But we do so knowing we are not alone. Holly and I purchased a school bus that is in excellent condition. We bought this with our own money, to ensure we put our money where our mouth is, as it were. We have skin in the game. Most of the seats have been removed to allow for gear. It has a hydraulic lift & diesel drivetrain. It's an International. We will re-purpose this bus for use by the III Liberty Support Teams. This vehicle must be outfitted with the gear and supplies necessary to accomplish our Mission, as well as provide logistical support to the Patriot forces that congregate at events - from radios to showers to water, etc. For now we are calling the bus the T.S.C. - Tactical Support Center. (This is WIDE open for change as we discuss these matters in coming days.)
THIRD: When a Bundy-type event occurs that we agree requires our presence, we will deploy the Tactical Support Center to the scene, set up our center, introduce ourselves to the Patriots and Militia on the ground, and begin our primary function – getting the truth out to Americans. AND, we will provide support to the units already on-site as needed and as requested.
NOTE: We are NOT on-scene to assume command. Our task is laser-focused - get Intel out of the AO. With any additional resources made available to us, we will provide support to our allies on the ground. Maybe that's a run to Wal-Mart for a pallet of water. Maybe it is a stand of showers for troops who have been in the muck for weeks. Maybe it’s a place to give exhausted allies a place for some rack-time and to provide first-aid as needed. Whatever...
Our primary role is collection and dissemination of INTELLIGENCE.
Our secondary role is providing SUPPORT to our Patriot allies on the ground.
FOURTH: The Intelligence that our on-the-ground Liberty Support Team assets gather, in audio, video, stills, interviews, etc. - will be relayed to III bloggers, web experts, etc. who will make sure that the information from the ground gets pushed out on social media, gets emailed to MSM & politicians, and to everyone else we trust to bring pressure on the Regime.
The TRUTH is the most powerful weapon FreeFor will ever have in this fight for Liberty.
We intend to go into Harm's way to get that truth. Our allies beyond the AO, such as WRSA, The Steel I-Beam, Free North Carolina, Wirecutter, NCRenegade, etc., will be risking their hides just as much as they push that intelligence out for the masses.
That's the synopsis. Feel free to weigh-in on anything - stream of consciousness. There is a LOT of detail still to be released, but it is never too soon for you to jump in and help guide us. This is another serious III Project that is designed to chip away at our Enemies' ability and their will to use violence. We must delegitimize them at every turn. We MUST get the truth to the world.
You and I are RIGHT. You and I have the MORAL HIGH GROUND.
As the saying goes - being right when the government is wrong is dangerous. Make no mistake, if you volunteer to be part of this project, you will be climbing the ranks of whatever FedGov lists on which you may already be listed.
Thus far we've broken the Liberty Support Teams into two primary parts: Ground Teams - anyone going to the event. And Web Teams - everyone involved in disseminating the flow of data coming out of the event. These two categories are too simplistic, obviously. We'll further delineate team designations as we go. For instance, I have already been in touch with a few Patriots around the country who are willing to work as HAM relays if we get comms jammed on-site. It is going to take many of us to make this work.
Personally, I can't see a higher RoI project currently available to FreeFor - until Total War is loosed on us all. Please think how you can help, where, when, and even why. In time we will need gear to outfit the Tactical Support Center (TSC). In some cases we will need cash. In other instances, we will need some of our Patriots to look through the gear you have at home and see if you can donate anything we'll need - such as command tents, military-styled cots, medical supplies, radio gear - you get it.
Sorry this is so long. It's a big deal.
And if you are wondering how this project concept was received at the PatCon amongst the Patriots there - I am very, very proud that a good part of Saturday night was spent discussing this project and how to make it work. I asked this question after laying out the idea to an invitation-only debrief on Saturday morning: Is there anyone here who thinks this is a bad idea or a waste of resources?
Not one Patriot thought this was a bad idea. So folks, I am going to charge hard...
I welcome any insights you may have,
