Oath Keepers

Oath Keepers

Yesterday, Oath Keepers announced a change in emphasis of their mission. Up until this point, Oath Keepers was primarily about reaching out to active-duty law enforcement and military to get them to reaffirm their oaths to the Constitution, with a secondary objective of preparing local communities for any sort of disaster—natural or man-made. These priorities have now been swapped, and a revamped effort to prepare citizens and their communities for disastrous eventualities is now job #1 of Oath Keepers.

The rationale behind the change in focus is due to the conclusion reached by the OK board: The American people are in an extremely prone position right now, and the goal of destroying the Constitution and eliminating what few freedoms remain for American citizens is all too readily achievable by any group(s) with the desire to do so. Therefore, we should prepare for this eventuality ASAP.

The scenario drawn up by the OK board is not dissimilar from what has been discussed here on this blog in the past (see, e.g., here):

  1. Allow the economy to collapse, most likely as a result of the dollar losing its reserve currency status;
  2. Let the country descend into chaos;
  3. Ride “to the rescue” by imposing martial law, and promising to restore order by eliminating the former system of government (Constitutional Republic) with an autocratic, socialistic technocracy.

The new OK formulation is to form small teams (12 – 14 people) out of local Oath Keeper chapters to get up to speed (in a hurry) on combat, survival, first aid, engineering, communications, etc.—and then cross-train citizens on these skills. If and when SHTF, the citizens properly trained can then rely upon each other, instead of needing to run into the tentacles of Fedzilla for survival.

At least that’s the plan in its current form. The OK leadership is actively soliciting feedback.

Frankly, I’m skeptical I’ll be able to get much traction on this in NYC. But I’m sure around the rest of the country they’ll find citizens increasingly eager to learn some basics of self-sufficiency as it becomes more and more glaringly obvious that our government is not on our side.

If you’re not a member of Oath Keepers but might have something to contribute, now’s a great time to get involved.

  1. Hmm this idea seems very familiar.

    Wait I know where its from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S.....ical_views

    Robert A Heinlein foresaw the problems our country is facing today about 60 years ago.
    In his novels that are set hundreds of years from now the characters often talk about how the society of the 21st century failed because the politicians kept brainwashing people about “rights” that were never outlined in their constitution which cost the government untold fortunes to supply (IE handouts to buy votes).
    Then when the handouts became unsustainable & the government collapsed due to debt the people rioted & pillaged till the veterans declared martial law and created a new government.

  2. I remember that book, the only way to be a Citizen or to be able to cast a vote, was to have served in the military. Hienlein was a visionary genius.

    • In his later stories he admired the concept of paying a positive tax being a requirement to vote. –That is not being able to vote if you were on the dole. It helps prevent the vote buying of idiot voters.

    Thanks for bringing this up. I just posted a link to OK a few days ago in a comment. http://angrywhitedude.com/2013.....g-hot-air/

    I have a daughter in her middle twenty’s that’s a deputy sheriff and I introduced her to Oath Keepers. I don’t know if she followed up on it or not, but I sure hope she at least looked at it. I urged her to be on the correct side of the constitution and to up hold her oath to it. I felt bad as her father saying this to her, but I told her that if she’s not, that when things hit the fan and the big push to take away guns comes and she becomes a part of it, that she likely will not survive because the people will not stand for having their guns taken without a fight. I do know she believes in the 2nd amendment and she is for conceal carry. I printed some of the fliers from the OK web site and pinned them up on bulletin boards for others to see. I know one thing is for sure. I will not just give up guns up like a sheep.

  4. Well, i think oath keepers is correct in their analysis of the situation. We are going to have to form groups in all areas around the country to be prepared for the inevitable collapse. Remember the old saying, “together we stand, divided we fall”


    Just about what all communists monsters want to do allow a nation to colapes into chaos impose Martial Law round up all distence into Gulags/Concetration Camps and Obama the Stnks names himself DICTATOR with the sinister UNITED NATIONS controling and monitoring everything including the Internet and all other forms of communications

  6. Red, thank you for posting about Oath Keepers I have always wanted to get involved but thought I couldn’t because I wasn’t Military or Police. Oath Keepers has a big presence in Killeen. I found out that people without current or prior service can join as an Associate member. I will get involved any way I can.

  7. No comment: this is a monitored site

    “I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do. I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.” — Robert A. Heinlein

    Words to think on. We are bound by our own chains till we die.

    Equality with respect to Veteran dioxin exposure presumption for all Veterans. Many are seniors, some are offspring and spouses, and too many have already died or will die younger than they should! No more new wars, finish the ones we have at home!

    Dioxins are from Agent Orange / Rainbow – Tactical Herbicides, some PCB’s and insecticides. They were used to defoliate fence lines around bases and TAC sites, prevent fires, hydraulic fluids, electrical equipment and control insects. Currently many vets are not getting these benefits as many exposed units are not listed for many locations, countries; poor, destroyed, classified and lost records

    If an effected vet make sure you add your statement in comment area too!

    As always, should you or any of your OK Force be caught or killed, the MSM will disavow any knowledge of your actions. This tape will self-destruct in ten seconds. Good luck, Red


    And the message that srlf destructs in five seconds

  12. Great. A first step in the right direction. The next step is for all the conservative groups out there to come together with OK in a grand coalition to form a kind of shadow government at all levels of society, especially at the local level, and to be ready when chaos hits the fan to rebuild social order and maintain our freedom under the Constitution.

  13. 9-11…..

    should be…..

    “The Day of National Patriotic Civil Disobedience.”

  17. I am a USAF veteran – a retired law enforcement officer with 33 years in the business and I am a member of Oath Keepers. I love my Country and I am ashamed of my Government ! I am firmly convinced that Obama is a Manchurian Candidate – sent to to destroy us from within – by the communist dirtbags and media maggots. We are being overrun by liberals who believe that surrendering to any 3rd World Parasite is the proper thing to do – along with Politically correct racial BS – where If you are white you are supposed to feel bad for those poor black people who don’t get enough welfare- free cell phones and the opportunity to burn-loot-rape and kill whitey. Of course I am lucky that I live where I live – no dirtbags black or white nearby . when the Civil war comes to the US – I will be ready – plenty of firearms and ammo – and the wherewithal to defend my family – better the judged by 12 then carried by 6 !
