Resisting the Elites: Armed Resistance?

In my previous article, I wrote about Peaceful Resistance. But what about armed resistance? They are certainly individuals who seem to be calling for violence or even civil war in response to our ever-more tyrannical and fascist government. Frankly, I believe many of those individuals are actually outside agitators - federal agents or civilian activists - intentionally causing trouble to embarrass or discredit our side, and even to harass and arrest patriots. Anyone remember Jan. 6th?  Also, the resulting publicity gives them more excuses to push new laws and regulations further limiting freedoms and entrenching their power.

If you haven't yet read it, please read my article Spotting Federal Agents and Other Infiltrators

Armed resistance may become necessary under certain conditions, but is an absolute last resort, as it is extremely difficult with deadly consequences. Most of us are not prepared to become guerrilla fighters, and likely would only get ourselves and probably our families killed. And lone wolf attacks accomplish nothing, except to give the media some wonderful propaganda to spin and to give government an excuse for yet more restrictions to our freedoms. 

I strongly believe in the right to self-defense, but I also strongly reject the unprovoked or unnecessary use of violence, including threats of violence, to achieve our goals. My advice for now is to concentrate instead on resisting in safer and more effective ways.

Resisting the Elites: Peaceful Resistance

Peaceful resistance can be an effective if enough people are willing to do it, and do it consistently. Here are some tips for engaging in peaceful resistance:
  • Educate Yourself: Understand the issues at hand and the reasons behind your resistance. What are you resisting, and why?
  • Educate Others: Knowledge is power, and the more people who understand the issues, the stronger the Resistance will be. Do everything you can to "red-pill" your family, friends, neighbors, fellow church members, and even co-workers.
  • Stay Informed: Keep up to date with current events and developments.
  • Use Peaceful Tactics: There are many non-violent methods of resistance, such as protests, marches, boycotts, and even strikes. The key to peaceful resistance is to stay peaceful. Self-defense is always allowed, but never initiate force or commit unprovoked violence. Never threaten violence. And never, ever threaten a politician or law-enforcement officer, even in jest. You don't  want that kind of attention.  
  • Respect the Rights of Others: Acknowledge and respect the rights and opinions of those who may disagree with you, even if you do not share their views. We have the right to free speech, and our opponents also have that same right. 
  • Communicate Your Message: Use various platforms to spread your message, including social media, flyers, townhalls, newspaper editorials, and public speaking events. Of course, this is predicated on knowing your message and what you want to accomplish. 
  • Organize and Collaborate: Join or create groups of like-minded people to amplify your message and create a larger impact.
  • Nonviolent Civil Disobedience: This can involve actions like sit-ins, protests, marches, boycotts, and even strikes. Always ensure these are peaceful.
  • Boycotts: Refuse to buy or use products or services from companies that are actively working. I see a lot of talk on social media in this area, but little action. When athletes began taking the knee years ago, and sports leagues openly supporting the LGBTQ+ agenda and embracing their ties with the CCP, so many fans decried these developments and said they would never watch again. Yet, week after week, they would sit their asses in front of the TV to watch yet another game. Hypocrites! Same goes for you parents who decry Disney's very open LGBTQ+ agenda, yet still subscribe to Disney+, still take your kid's to Disney theme parks, and still buy Disney toys and videos. 
  • Use Social Media: Social media can be a powerful tool for spreading your message and organizing peaceful resistance. Sure, your account might get "cancelled," but in most cases you can create new accounts anonymously. Better yet, have your real account, which you keep clean from politics and controversial issues, and one or more anonymous accounts which you use for resistance activities. 
  • Be Persistent: Change often takes time, so remain committed and consistent in your efforts. It took us years - make that generations - to get into this mess. It will take an equally long time to dig our way out of it. Be in it for the long-haul, not just an election cycle. Their is no going back to sleep if we want to prevail.

Resisting the Elites: Tips For Being A Resistance Fighter

By Tim Gamble 
Join the Resistance! Subscribe by email (click this link)

Being a Resistance Fighter doesn't equate to grabbing a gun and heading into the streets. It is not about fermenting civil war, committing violence, or threatening violence. Self-defense is always allowed, of course, but violence is an option of last resort. Instead, being a Resistance Fighter is about not yielding to the system being forced upon you. It is about living your life free and well, despite the forces trying to impose their will upon you. 

Click to enlarge.

Here are some tips for being an effective Resistance Fighter:

1) Start with yourself. Build your resilience, self-reliance, and preparedness. In doing so, you will be less dependent upon the system, removing much of the power the system has over you. This includes working hard to improve you health and fitness, overcoming addictions, improving your mental health and attitude, learning practical skills, and building solid relationships (spouse, family, community, church, tribe).

2) Think in terms of concentric circles. 
  • The  bullseye circle = YOU (This is the one circle you have the most control over)
  • The household circle = spouse, children, and other family members living with you (probably the circle you can influence the most)
  • The tribe circle = those you "do life" with. May include close friends, extended family members, fellow church members...
  • The community circle = those living or working in you immediate geographical area, such as neighbors, co-workers...
  • The local circle = Typically your city, town or county.
  • The state circle = The state (or province) where you live.
  • The national level = Most folks will have little actual influence at this level.
  • The global level =  Most folks will have little actual influence at this level.
The idea is that the smaller the circle, the bigger impact you can have. The bigger the circle, the less influence most folks will have. Spend most of you time and effort in the smaller circles. But don't completely ignore the larger circles. 

3) Stay informed. Keep up-to-date with current events at all levels. The more you know, the better you can strategize. Pay attention to both the corporate media and alternative sources. The corporate media will reveal what the Elites want the narrative to be, in both what they cover and don't cover. The alternative media will reveal much about what is actually going on. Be aware that all alternative media are not created equal. Many alternative media sources are also heavily biased, overly emotional, or just plain wrong. Gather information from a variety of sources, compare it with what you are seeing with your own eyes, and always think for yourself

4) Learn survival skills. Learn basic survival skills like self-defense, first aid, gardening, raising chickens and livestock, hunting, fishing, foraging, and starting fires. You will need the skills if society collapses for whatever reasons. Also, learn modern survival skills like situational awareness, money management and personal finance, employability in an age of technology and AI, and dealing with an intrusive government, HOAs, landlords and busybody neighbors. (I've written many articles on these topics, so please check out my Dystopian Survival website!)

5) Learn self-defense. Knowing how to defend yourself could save your life in a dangerous situation. This means learning to avoid bad situations to begin with (situational awareness, being the gray man, etc.), and learning how to defend yourself by both lethal and non-lethal means. 

6) Be discreet. Protect your privacy. In the context of a resistance movement, secrecy is important. Don't share sensitive information with people you don't trust completely (operational security). Be conscious about how you (and your family/tribe) use social media. Protect your online, and real world, privacy. Finding a balance in this area is difficult, and will vary from person to person depending on your own circumstances and concerns. 

7) Build a network/tribe. Connect with like-minded individuals who share your beliefs, values, and goals. Be cautious (see #6 above), but don't be paranoid. This could be the foundation of your resistance movement.

8) Be prepared for the unexpected. Always have a go-bag (bug-out bag) ready with essentials like food, water, first aid supplies, a change of clothes, extra cash, etc. Have physical maps of your area and region.  Wear sturdy shoes/boots that are comfortable for walking. If you must wear dress shoes or high heels for work, carry a spare pair of sneakers with you, or at least have them in your car so you can change into them if needed. (lots of article on bug-out bags and bugging out on my Dystopian Survival website).

9) Know your rights. Familiarize yourself with the constitution and your rights. This will help you navigate interactions with law enforcement and other officials. Yes, they may ignore your rights, but you don't have to make it easy for them by not knowing your rights. Consider keeping a pocket Constitution in your go-bag. (Amazon link: https://amzn.to/2OgaatY)

10) Be ready to adapt. In a rapidly changing environment, flexibility is crucial. Be prepared to change your plans and strategies as needed. Be prepared to move if your location becomes untenable or dangerous for whatever reasons.  See my article Urban Survival - Adaptability Is Key (also appropriate for small towns and rural areas). 

11) Know how to identify federal agents, undercover police, and outside agitators. My article Spotting Federal Agents and Other Infiltrators is a good starting place.   

12) Live your life normally! This is the most important thing you can do. Ignore the insane political correctness and wokeness going on around us. Don't fall for whatever rhetoric the authorities and "experts" are pushing. Use your brain. Don't follow the herd, or fall into the pit of "group think." Always think for yourself. 

If religion is important to you, go to church, pray, read the Bible daily. What if your church has gone "woke"?  Many have. In that case, find a new church or start a home church or Bible study with like-minded folks from your old church! 

If you enjoy hunting, go hunting. Like to eat meat? Eat meat! Are you pro-second amendment? Join GOA. Tired of the LGBTQ+ agenda and celebrations? Teach your kids to be Real Men and Real Women. Join the PTA. Vote in the school board elections. Make your voice heard at school board meetings. Homeschool, or send your kids to a good private or parochial school (but beware, woke is creeping in there, too). 

Don't let the Elites and their system intimidate you into submission.

Resisting the Elites: A "How To" Starter Guide

By Tim Gamble 
Join the Resistance! Subscribe by email (click this link)

How do we resist the elites trying to destroy America and Western Civilization as we know it? 

The foundation we must build on is resilience, self-reliance, and preparedness, as individuals, families, tribes, and communities. 

Be able to think, and do, for yourself as much as possible. The more self-reliant you and your family are, the less you will be affected by what is coming, and the more you'll be able to resist. Do everything you can to build as much self-reliance and resilience as you can while there is still time (but, the clock is ticking).

My article, A Quick and Easy Outline of Preparedness, is a good place to start. If you want more in depth info from a much more expert voice, check out Pastor Joe Fox's book, Survivalist Family. Fox, a former Green Beret, has written what I consider to be the best guide to beginner and intermediate preparedness and survival. Highly recommended.  

How To Resist?  The best way to resist is to do the the opposite of what they want. 
  • They want open borders, so fight for secure borders and controlled immigration.
  • They want to end national sovereignty, so fight for national sovereignty and a strong military. 
  • They want endless wars to prop up the military-industrial complex, so fight for peace. (Peace through strength, with a non-interventionist foreign policy).
  • They want to ridicule and belittle patriotism, so be patriotic, and encourage others to be patriotic, too. (Celebrate the idea, and ideals, of our nation's founding, not our current wayward path.)
  • They want to end private property rights, so fight for laws protecting private property rights.
  • They want to restrict inheritance, so fight to end restrictions and taxation on inheritance.
  • They want to take away our guns, our means of self-protection, so fight to protect the Second Amendment. 
  • They want a cashless economy, so insist on using cash. 
  • They want to end traditional Christianity, so be a traditional, Bible-believing follower of the Messiah. This definitely means getting out of liberal/progressive churches.
  • They want to end the traditional family, so fight for it. 
  • They want to end traditional ideas of gender, so teach your children to be Real Men and Real Women.
  • They want control over your children's education, health, and bodies, so fight for your kids. 

Other Ideas for Resisting:

  • Honest elections matter, so fight for election reform, voter ID laws, transarency in counting, and an end to ballot harvesting.
  • Control of the Judiciary is critical. Judgeships matter deeply.
  • Be very active in local politics and talk to local officials. Local efforts, where our "leaders" must deal with us face-to-face, can be very effective.
  • In reality, local politics are more important than state politics. And state politics are more important than federal politics. 
  • Influence your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and fellow church members. Don't be cowed by political correctness or wokeness. 
  • Make use of alternative media sources to stay informed. But always think for yourself. 
  • My opinion: the best source of real journalism today is The Epoch Times.  
  • Learn about Technocracy, which is a primary tool the Elites are using to change our world. 
  • A great introduction to Technocracy is my article Technocracy, The Power Elite, and the Transformation of Human Civilization
  • The best source of news regarding technocracy is the website Technocracy News & Trends.
  • Men: Provide for, protect, and lead your family. Don't give in to worldly ways, modern sensibilities, wokeness, and political correctness. Be a Real Man. 
  • Parents: you are responsible for your children's welfare, not schools, teachers, or even the government. Teach your children, and stand between them and the dangers of political correctness and woke ideologies. 
  • Start building networks and communities of like-minded people you can trust. This takes time and effort, which is why it needs to be done now, not later. (Lots of community building articles on my Dystopian Survival website.)
  • Be especially wary of polices and laws that can be used as a "backdoor" to limit or take away our Freedoms. Hate speech laws allow the government to define "hate" however they wish, destroying our First Amendment rights. School anti-bullying policies more often are used to prevent your children from wearing a patriotic shirt ("bullying" immigrants) rather than stopping a real bully from taking your kid's lunch money. Red Flags laws have "gun confiscation" written all over them, especially in light of the APA's willingness to define traditional masculine traits as harmful.
Next up in my series on Resisting the Elites is "Tips For Being A Resistance Fighter." It will post early next week, so check back soon!

Ukraine: The Zelensky Problem

By Tim Gamble 
Join the Resistance! Subscribe by email (click this link)

On X (formerly Twitter), @DC_Draino made a post which has garnered a lot of attention, including from me. His post (see the image below) makes a very valid point about what I call the Zelensky Problem - the fact that the Ukrainian leader has literally become a dictator, cancelling elections and jailing political opposition. 

Here is the text to @DC_Draino's post:

Zelensky cancelled elections in his country

He arrested his biggest political opponent, banned dissenting media, and shut down opposition political parties

Now he is targeting 350+ Americans with an enemies list

Why the HELL are we sending more money to this little dictator?!

To this list of Zelensky's misdeeds we can add:
  • Jailing American journalist Robert Gonzalez, who died in a Ukrainian prison
  • Threatening American journalist Tucker Carlson for interviewing Putin
  • Banning the Russian Orthodox Church
  • Apparently stealing millions dollars worth of US aid and spending it on expensive luxury homes and cars, and lavish international shopping trips by his wife
A close examination of Zelensky's actions reveal him to be a corrupt dictator, not unlike Russia's Putin. One that the US and the West are spending hundreds of billions of dollars, and risking World World III, to support. Hence, the Zelensky Problem.
