Is it time to increase your personal DEFCON Alert Level? While deciding what to post this morning, I just read a comment on the blog that resonated with me… The more I look at the state this Country is in at present, the more I agree with you that the SHTF quite awhile ago, it just hasn’t filtered down enough for the prepping community to take heed. It will probably take a TEOTWAWKI to get people to activate their defense/preparation plan when today is the day it should be implemented or at the least a increase in your personal DEFCON

image source: ZeroHedge I came across an interesting statistic, one which somewhat surprised me. The number of FBI firearms background checks for the month of May have set a new record. Why was I surprised? Because since Trump was elected, the fear of “gun-grabbing” politicians has subsided. So what is it that’s causing even more […]
Anti-gun hysteria found its way to East Manatee, Fla., on Thursday when a school was locked down because a history teacher brought a replica of a Civil War rifle — that does not work — to class.
Braden River Elementary School and Middle School locked down after somebody saw the teacher with a replica of a flintlock rifle and called 911, EAGNews reported. The gun cannot shoot and has a musket.
“All clear Braden River Middle School,” the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office tweeted after the incident. “Turned out to be a teacher with antique rifle for class. Kudos to public for see something say something.”
Middle school principal Randy Petrilla said the incident was a misunderstanding.
“A teacher at our school brought in a Civil War era rifle for a demonstration in their class,” Petrilla told the Bradenton Herald newspaper. “This teacher had previously notified the school [resource officer] that he would be bringing the rifle to school. As he was bringing the rifle into the school this morning, someone saw him and reported it to law enforcement.”
Petrilla continued, “Law enforcement responded immediately and began searching the school and during that process it was established that the alleged threat was actually related to the teacher with the rifle.”
Parents were split on the incident. Some said that common sense was needed, while others said it’s better to be safe than sorry.
“In 1966 the Cadet Training Rifle was big,” Bill Gage wrote on Facebook. “Bolt action with wooden bullet. We’d bring our realistic looking wooden M1 to school and play ‘war’ at recess. Times have changed.”

I recently received an email from the American Redoubt outlining the possible and perhaps likely scenario that would take place following a Trump assassination. I have thought about such consequences myself, particularly given some of the vocal left who are actually publicly calling for his assassination (why are they not being prosecuted?!). While I do […]

It is a politically charged week for certain as we are truly living in historical times right at this very moment. Following yesterday’s heated discussion surrounding the question “Will Planned Chaos At Inauguration & US Streets Spiral Out Of Control?”, we will ask a new question “Will the furious actions to delegitimize Trump (an ongoing […]

Stonewall Jackson Black Sunday School
There was a lively discussion the other night and it ended with the knowledge of Stonewall Jackson Black Sunday School. One of my treasured friends is a Civil War buff and very intelligent about the subject. Another dear friend there is from the south. Imagine the surprise when he admitted he was not aware of the efforts by Thomas Jackson.
For those others that may not know. The background on Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson is a pretty good tale. The man came from very humble beginnings and his leadership traits should be emulated more often as we have talked about before. One of his core beliefs was in predestination.
One wonders how someone could be a man of God and believe in slavery. Stonewall Jackson believes were that a slave was destined to be a slave. Only God could change that. There is little doubt that Mr. Jackson treated his slaves in a Christian way. He went further than others of his time.
Stonewall Jackson Black Sunday School was started at the Lexington Presbyterian Church sometime around the fall of 1855 and May 1866. Not only did he teach slaves and freed black men about the scriptures he also taught them how to read and write, which was a forbidden thing at that time, so they could understand their destiny.
Leave no doubt as a Godly man he also would have taught them about their role as slaves or freed men. He took this class upon his shoulders and engaged his wife. He was a large financial contributor to the Sunday School class. The joy in this effort was reflected in letters home while away at battle.
Many of his letters mention to his wife Anna mentioned the Sunday schools class and often included money to ensure that it kept going. This was standard procedure for something that Mr. Jackson cared for.
I’m throwing this question out there for your discussion and opinion: What is it going to take – to trigger the next civil war? Note: I am NOT advocating a civil war. I am asking a question. With that said, here’s more clarification: Stop the Coming Civil War: My Savage Truth OUR NATION IS […]
155 years ago North Carolina Seceded
The flag above was adopted in 1861 after the state of North Carolina seceded from the Union. This was a special day as 155 years ago North Carolina seceded. It shows two dates that are very important in North Carolina History. You can tell that May 20th is a big day in the history books of the Old North State.
The date reflected on the top is from the Mecklenburg Resolves. That is where the Committee of Safety declared all laws from the King or Parliament were null and void. This was a pretty big step and not one that was taken lightly.
The decision to secede from the Union and join the Confederate States of America was another big step. Once again North Carolina was rebelling against authority from outside the Old North State. This one was telling the Federal government was middling in matters that should be settled by the State.
This day marks 155 years ago North Carolina seceded. It is a big day and one that should be remembered. It seems like 155 years later we are still facing the same issue. It remains to be seen how the current crisis will be resolved.
North Carolina has shown in the past that it will make hard decisions. 155 years ago North Carolina seceded and joined in what was a losing cause. Even during that war you could tell the North Carolina troops as our boys were generally supported very well.
On this Friday we should remember the bravery and sacrifices that we have made in the past. Stay strong for our beliefs and values that we hold dear. Make sure we embrace our history and the flag pictured above depicts that.

America is commemorating the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War this year, but the commemoration has been anything but civil. With debates over heroes, statues and flags, the Civil War seemingly has divided America once again.
Meanwhile, many Americans still don’t know their Civil War history, having bought into myths and legends that apparently never die.
On this week’s edition of Off The Grid Radio we discuss Civil War “off-grid” history that you won’t get out of public school textbooks or from the mainstream media. Our guest is historian Bill Potter, an author, teacher and lecturer who also gives tours of American and European sites, telling the story of God’s providential hand in history.
Potter tells us:
- Why it’s wrong to view the Civil War simply as the “good guys” vs. the “bad guys.”
- How the issue of racism in the South was far more complex than what we’ve learned.
- What really tore the states apart, and how churches played a key role.
- Why Lincoln’s views on slavery are more complicated than the conventional narrative.
- Whether the Civil War truly was a necessary war.
A century and a half after it ended, the “War Between The States” continues to captivate our imagination. Listen as one of the nation’s leading experts on the Civil War explains its history in ways you’ve never heard!

Some are seen in Russian uniforms, some in American uniforms and others in civilian clothing. Some have been seen with military vehicles and aircraft and some with DHS vehicles.
