Social Collapse: Your Only Rights Are Those You Can Defend – Imminent Collapse of American Society

massive-social-collapse

During the time period following a massive social societal collapse, law and order will break down. Some, most, or all of us may be living WROL (without rule of law) the extent of which may depend on where you live.

During this time of chaos, an individual will have rights only as long as he or she can defend them.

A devastating social collapse will smash your preconception of safety & security.

This is the subtle logic of violence. Your rights are those you can defend.

Most people may feel uncomfortable with this notion, however it’s something that you might inevitably face under collapse conditions. It’s best to understand this and prepare as necessary.

Most people have never had to defend themselves or their property and it will be difficult to grasp, understand, or accept the logic of violence. Criminals on the other hand, understand it fully.

Presently we live in a society that is quite visibly decaying into something less than orderly. While criminals are generally held in check by the police and justice system, there are obvious changes taking place before our eyes.

It feels like we have been and are being divided in irreconcilable ways that have become a danger to our societal fabric. There are organized and very well funded groups who are loudly proclaiming that they will be attacking us (physically) as they continue their attempted ‘take down’ of America as we once knew it. For those of you who’ve been following alt-news, you know the groups whom I speak of (and those who are behind them and supporting them).

Following a major social collapse the criminal element will be unleashed while the police become overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of it all. They will also be like the rest of us: concerned for their own security, their own families, their own homes and property…

Collapse will be worst in the cities (where martial law may be declared). Logically, less so in the suburbs, and even less in rural America. Though no one will be unaffected under such a scenario.

If and until order is restored,


your rights will consist of those which you can personally defend.

Defending your rights under social collapse conditions may result in physical threats to your person, your home or your property. It may lead to engagement of force, violence, or any actions thereof. It’s not a pleasant thought for most people who are used to an orderly and relatively safe & secure society.

Most people don’t have much, if any, experience with defending themselves against violence. Many or most people probably have not given serious thought to the circumstances of a major social collapse and the ensuing reality of having to defend one’s rights for real. Most people think it can’t happen…

The thing is, it has happened before, it is presently happening in other places around the world right now, and it may even happen here.

If you are reading this, then I hope you will at least think about it, and the things you might do to prepare for such a time. Don’t get stuck in normalcy bias. If you’ve thought it through, you will be less shocked and more prepared if and when it happens.

Professor of Cliodynamics Predicts Imminent Collapse of American Society

By Amando Flavio

The world has increasingly become unpredictable. When Donald Trump announced his intention to run for president of the United States on the ticket of the Republican Party, some people saw him as a comedian. The media gave him no chance of winning the primaries of the Republican Party.

In fact, the day Trump announced his candidature at his Towers, a news outlet in New York City sent an internship reporter to cover the event instead of an experienced one. The outlet thought Trump was unable to make any impact, and therefore saw no need to place prominence on his press conference. Even when Trump won the nomination of his party, the media and pollsters gave him no chance of beating Hillary Clinton.

American society

Fast-forward to 2017 and today Trump is the president of the United States. According to Western observers, Trump is now the most powerful person on Earth. This event indeed proves that the world has become uncertain.

Not only with the Trump example – even before the victory of Trump –  the United Kingdom shockingly voted to leave the European Union. Since the election of Trump, the European Union has also witnessed a surge in right-wing politics – something almost unheard of.

A professor at the University of Connecticut, United States, is raising the red flag by aggregating these recent events over this short period of time. Professor Peter Turchin studies ecology and mathematics, and is known for developing the academic discipline, Cliodynamics. Cliodynamics is a transdisciplinary area of research in academia that deals with the intersection of historical macro-sociology, economic history and mathematical modeling of long-term social processes. The objective of the discipline is to understand why things change with time.

American society

Turchin has written about the subject for some time, but three years ago he started work on predicting the future. According to Professor Turchin, the United States society is likely to collapse soon, predicting it to occur in the 2020s. Turchin says a series of instabilities would rock the United States, and claims would come as a result of political turmoil, which would shake the American society to its core. “We should expect many years of political turmoil, peaking in the 2020s,” Turchin predicts.

Professor Turchin believes negative trends seem to be accelerating, and that in three years, the path to instability will seem unavoidable for the United States. However, he clarifies that Trump’s presidential election neither accelerates nor decelerates the process, but was simply a predicted aspect of his theory.

According to Turchin, at the center of his new theory is “elite overproduction.” He defines elite overproduction as the rich growing richer while relating less and less to the poor. He explains that elite overproduction would result in ideological polarization and fragmentation of the political class.

American society

Professor Turchin uses the 2016 presidential election as a classical example, explaining that the Republican Party has shattered into different factions, consisting of Traditional Republicans, Tea Party Republicans, and Trump Populists. According to him, the same applies to the Democratic Party, with the divide between Democratic Socialists and Establishment Democrats.

Apart from this, another factor possibly playing a role in the instability is the fast-weakening fiscal health of the American nation because of personal incomes falling while living expenses rise. This has resulted in stagnation, or even deterioration of the quality of life among the middle and the lower classes in the country.

Turchin says Trump’s election campaign message of reducing taxes would not save the situation. “Drastically reducing taxes on wealthy Americans will hardly strengthen the fiscal health of the state,” he writes.

American society

Professor Turchin states that his work is purely based on prediction. “This is a science-based forecast, not a ‘prophecy’,” Professor Turchin explains.

He concludes by offering suggestions to avert the impending doom. Turchin proposes an open discussion of problems and potential solutions. He also cites the need for better science, saying that a nonpolitical, nonpartisan institute should be set up to address these issues from a scientific standpoint. These, if implemented, Turchin believes, could mitigate the impending doom.

Communism Was Created by Jews and Serves Only Their Interests

By Willem Felderhof

Judaism is communism

Jews around the world celebrated 1917 when the Bolsheviks (Communists), led by Lenin and ((((((Trotsky)))))), seized power in Moscow. The first legislative act that passed by the new legislature was the “anti-semitism act.” This law, according the traditions of men, made it a criminal offense to defame Jews and Judaism. Even a joke about the Jews was classified as a hate crime punishable by ten years in prison. What a remarkable similar environment we see today in Western societies that are completely under Zionist Jewish control, where brave people like Alison ChablozMonika Schaefer or Hervé Ryssen have to face ritual Talmudic inquisitions, which are disguised as pseudo legal constructs that serve justice. We better be warned for what is coming; today we see parasites like French Prime minister Macron calling for stricter anti-semite laws almost on a daily basis. Same trend, the same tribe, same outcome if we don’t wake up.

After the Jewish Bolsheviks took power in Russia, Jews from all over the world poured in to Russia because, once again, they had the erroneous and twisted messianic believe that their victory in Russia validated their holy law; the Talmud.

For proof that Communism was created by Jews and serves as just another mask for Talmudic Judaism we just have to look at some of the numerous quotes made by Jews themselves about the topic, as they always brag about their “constructive” contributions to humanity.

For example Rabbi Harry Waton writes in his book A program for the Jews and humanity:

“The Communist soul is the soul of Judaism. Hence it follows that in the Russian revolution, the triumph of Communism was the triumph of Judaism”

Or the following quote from the American Hebrew, September 1920 bragging about the pre Holodomor triumph:

“The Bolshevist revolution in Russia was the work of Jewish brains, of Jewish dissatisfaction, of jewish planning, whose goal is to create a new order in the world. What was performed in such an excellent way in Russia, due to Jewish brains and Jewish dissatisfaction, and by Jewish planning, shall also through the same Jewish mental and physical forces, became a reality all over the world”

I rest my case. Let’s look at one of the most powerful and most applicable quotes of the last century made by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (1918-2008), Nobel-Prize-winning novelist, historian and critic of Communist totalitarianism:

“You must understand. The leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians. They hated Russians. They hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred they tortured and slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse. The October Revolution was not what you call in America the “Russian Revolution.” It was an invasion and conquest over the Russian people. More of my countrymen suffered horrific crimes at their bloodstained hands than any people or nation ever suffered in the entirety of human history. It cannot be understated. Bolshevism was the greatest human slaughter of all time. The fact that most of the world is ignorant of this reality is proof that the global media itself is in the hands of the perpetrators.”

Indeed, the worst genocide in history wasn’t the Holocaust … in fact, it was perpetrated by members of the very same group of people who claim they were the victims of one. And it took the lives of 66 million (Solzhenitsyn’s estimate of those who perished between 1918 and 1957), not 6 million

Next is an article from 2016 by Lord Dreadnought

The Jewish Origins of Mao’s Communist Regime in China

U.S.A. and western journalists and historians are prohibited from writing about the Jewish origins of Mao Tse Tung’s Red Chinese revolution. In fact, Mao was schooled by Skull and Bonesmen and initiated into the internationalist Masonic Lodge by socialist Jews from the United States. This was done with the tacit permission of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, a 32nd degree Mason and, later, President Harry S. Truman a 33rd degree Mason. Mao all along has been a closely-controlled puppet of Jewish revolutionaries—men like ((((((Israel Epstein)))))) and ((((((Sidney Shapiro)))))), who lived in China and had the reins of power over two key areas of Beijing’s Communist Government—the treasury (money) and the media (propaganda). Interestingly, Zionist Jews hold sway over these same two essential instruments of government today in the United States and most if not all other Western countries.

The covert Jewish control of Mao and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) explains why convicted Jewish spy ((((((Jonathan Pollard)))))), found guilty of stealing thousands of classified documents from the Defense Department where he worked, gave these materials to his masters, the Israeli Mossad operating in the U.S.A. The Israelis, in turn, transferred these valuable military secrets straight to Red crypto Chinese dictators in Beijing.

Communist China was created by Rothschilds and their agents

October 1 1949, Mao Tse Tsung declared the founding of the People’s Republic of China in Tiananmen Square, Beijing. He was funded by ((((((Rothschild)))))) created Communism in Russia and also the following ((((((Rothschild)))))) agents: ((((((Solomon)))))) Adler, a former United States Treasury official who was a Soviet Spy; ((((((Israel Epstein)))))), the son of a Jewish Bolshevik imprisoned by the Tsar in Russia for trying to ferment a revolution there; and Frank Coe, a leading official of the ((((((Rothschild)))))) owned IMF. Jews were behind the rise to power of Mao Tse Tung, the communist dictator of China, who tortured and murdered tens of millions of Chinese (mostly Christians) during his brutal reign. ((((((Sidney Shapiro)))))), an American Jew, was in charge of China’s propaganda organ. Another Jew, ((((((Israel Epstein)))))), was Mao’s Minister of Appropriations (Finance).

Mao would murder sixty million innocent Chinese people under his rule mainly to destroy traditional Chinese culture in order to gain total control. As with Christianity, any practitioners of spiritual systems were outlawed, killed, and thrown into gulags, to die a slow death through slave labor, starvation and torture. The Communistic systems became the new culture of control. With China under their flag, Tibet was next on the list as being the last bastion of spiritual and historical knowledge. All the Jewish systems seek to remove spiritual knowledge from Gentiles and keep it in the hands of the Jewish elite. This is a major part of their indoctrination program. There has been a major Jewish population in China for over a thousand years such as the Jews of Kaifeng.

China has been built up into the biggest global superpower by the Jewish financial elite and every valuable Western technology has been shipped there. This was identical to what the Jews did with their USSR, turning it into a massive super state of military superpower, to wage conquest upon the rest of the earth, which they did. The only reason they were halted was the second war monkey wrenched their plans globally and led to the stagnation and fall of the USSR. There are reports that the America tactical silos are contracted to Israeli firms for certain electronics’ functions, they also have their agents all over the Pentagon and other key Western military and government networks.

The covert Jewish control of Mao and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) explains why convicted Jewish spy ((((((Jonathan Pollard)))))), found guilty of stealing thousands of classified documents from the Defense Department where he worked, gave these materials to his masters, the Israeli Mossad operating in the U.S.A. The Israelis, in turn, transferred these valuable military secrets straight to Red Chinese dictators in Beijing. Pollard, a Jew born in Galveston, Texas, sits in a federal prison today. Recently, when Israeli Prime Minister ((((((Netanyahu)))))) came to America, he visited Pollard in prison and assured the despicable turncoat Israeli spy that the Israeli government was working behind-the-scenes with Obama’s White House to pardon the convicted spy. Meanwhile, Pollard is a national hero in Israel—honored for stealing America’s most precious military secrets which Israel gave to Communist China. [Ren Ed: Pollard was released by Obama]

Even now according to official statistics Communist China again carried out more executions than the rest of the world put together. Amnesty International believes thousands are executed and sentenced to death there every year, but with numbers kept a state secret the true figure is impossible to determine.

‘Whatever the price of the Chinese Revolution, it has obviously succeeded not only in producing more efficient and dedicated administration, but also in fostering high morale and community of purpose. The social experiment in China under Chairman Mao’s leadership is one of the most important and successful in human history’.–  David Rockefeller.

Soft Power

The most under reported, however is the “Soft Power” tactic currently being implemented by the Peoples Republic of China in the United States.

It was America that showed the world how to mass produce everything from automobiles to televisions to airplanes.  It was the great American manufacturing base that crushed Germany and Japan in World War II.  But now we are witnessing the deindustrialization of America. Thanks to Jewish control over government, thousands of factories have left the United States and moved to China in the past decade alone.  Millions upon millions of manufacturing jobs have been lost in the same time period. The United States has become a nation that consumes everything in sight and yet produces increasingly little.

The United States has become bloated and spoiled and our economy is now just a shadow of what it once was. Once upon a time America could literally outproduce the rest of the world combined. Today that is no longer true, but Americans sure do consume more than anyone else in the world.

The Economic Policy Institute in Washington, D.C., estimates that America lost 2.7 million jobs as a result of the U.S.-China trade deficit between 2001 and 2011, 2.1 million of them in manufacturing. Wages of American workers have also suffered due to the competition with cheap Chinese labor, EPI says. A typical two-earner household loses around $2,500 per year from this dynamic.

Manufacturing was the hardest-hit industry, with fabrication of high-tech goods like semiconductors and electronics suffering the most, accounting for more than half of the $217.5 billion increase in the trade deficit between 2001 and 2011.

Most of the jobs lost or displaced by trade with China between 2001 and 2011 were in manufacturing industries (more than 2.1 million jobs, or 76.9 percent). Within manufacturing, rapidly growing imports of computer and electronic products (including computers, parts, semiconductors, and audio-video equipment) accounted for 54.9 percent of the $217.5 billion increase in the U.S. trade deficit with China between 2001 and 2011. The growth of this deficit contributed to the elimination of 1,064,800 U.S. jobs in computer and electronic products in this period. Indeed, in 2011, the total U.S. trade deficit with China was $301.6 billion—$139.3 billion of which was in computer and electronic products.

Thanks to the suicidal manufacturing policy in US, China GDP has risen from $350 billion in 1990 to $20 trillion (PPP) and surpassed the US in terms of GDP based on purchasing power parity (PPP). United States of America was the largest but International Monetary Fund and World Bank rank China since as the world’s largest economy. The US has been the global economic leader since overtaking the UK in 1872. Most economists previously thought China would pull ahead in 2019.

 

So if the United States continues to allow its manufacturing base to erode at a staggering pace how in the world can the U.S. continue to consider itself to be a great nation? We have created the biggest debt bubble in the history of the world in an effort to maintain a very high standard of living, but the current state of affairs is not anywhere close to sustainable. As of June 30, 2012, China held a total of $3.24 trillion in foreign exchange reserves (((((((Bloomberg)))))) News 2012), about 70 percent of which were held in U.S. dollars. Every single month America does into more debt to communist China and every single month America gets poorer.

The deindustrialization and debt of the United States should be a top concern for every man, woman and child in the country. It is not that hard to understand what happens when the debt bubble pops. But sadly, most Americans do not have any idea what is going on around them.

Because America’s debt is exploding to unmanageable proportions, the United States finds itself financially dependent on China as one of its main creditors. Americans owe The Peoples Republic well over a trillion dollars and are going further into debt, but the Communist ruling elite in Beijing are not satisfied with having the U.S. as a virtual debtor client state. China’s political elite are also using their financial power to manipulate how Americans think — or don’t think — about China. Along with computers, electronics, and house wares, a new kind of Political Correctness is also being manufactured in China.

The Communist elite which controls China wants Hollywood to portray the Peoples Republic in a favorable light to American audiences, while rewarding the hard Left U.S. film industry with hefty profits for their cooperation.

These are dangerous events which directly threaten the United States. The threats offered by an increasing powerful Communist China are already all but ignored by the zionist mass media in US, both on the Right as well as on the Left. Beijing’s elite, however, are taking no chances. Ignoring the China threat is not enough, the American people must be made to love the Peoples Republic and all its works.

Hardline

From looking at things, the Syrian conflict could be a smaller warm up to a planned global conflict. Russia has already participated in 2013 in a mass joint war games exercise with China on Eastern European soil with thousands of Red Chinese troops. They where training specifically for war against Western forces, this was kept out of the mainstream of course. This is what America and Western Europe have been prepped for over the decades, and how they planned to take Germany down into Communism during the First war, which they manipulated into existence for the sole purpose of taking all of Europe down into Communism, and they nearly did. It is a repeating set of tactics they are using.

The West is past the demoralization point and has entered into the destabilization phase. The Protest Wall St was organized by Jewish agents of ((((((Rothschild)))))) to be the start of a Communist movement, which is part of the subversion of decades of indoctrination of students into Communist ideals. At this point, one way or another, Zionists are seeking to take the West down should they start a full out Communist revolution, civil war or open war. One way or another, it seems Red Chinese troops will be on Western Soil “Liberating” us from the Fascist oppressors. This is what the Jews did with the Red Army rolling over Europe and the East, enslaving the many for the Jews.

Non-Visual Target Indicators – Stealth

This article is part of a series on the practical aspects of stealth. To see links to all of the articles on this topic, see the main page for The Stealth Fighter.

A target indicator is anything that makes your presence known to an enemy; it indicates a target (you, in this case). If you master this section, you can write the book on stealth. The purpose of camouflage is to reduce target indicators. The importance of the term “target indicator” is impossible to overstate. If you get just that from this article, it was worth your time to read it.

People spend an enormous amount of time on reducing visual target indicators. This article is on reducing your signature as a target in the domains of sound and smell. A misplaced radio crackle, or a whiff of cigarette smoke can burn you just as well as an errant movement. Let’s dive in.

Smell

In any field environment, perfumes stand out. The detergent you wash your clothes with is almost certainly scented, as is your shampoo. The simple solution is to keep your clothes for the civilized world and your field-wear separate. Wash your field wear in warm water with no detergent. It wont become rancid with stench, and yet it will not give you away. Similarly, avoid soaps, deodorants, colognes, and other such frills for a minimum of 24 hours prior to entering a field environment.

Another obvious olfactory target indicator is cigarette or campfire smoke. Don’t do it near the enemy. An unfortunate wind will leave no doubt as to your presence. Cooking food falls into the same category. You must eat, but use good judgement.

Perhaps one you didn’t consider is the food you eat seeping through your pores. This mainly pertains to situations where your potential observers are foreign. If you’d like to see this firsthand, get extremely drunk. The next morning, go for a jog. You’ll smell the booze seeping out. If you prefer not to abuse yourself that much, eat a healthy dose of curry and breathe in the same effect later.

Sound

Some sounds belong, and some don’t. The clanking of metal is sure to draw attention, as is the ringtone on your cell phone. Make sure that whatever sounds you make in a given area of operations belong, or don’t make them at all. Discipline is obviously a key factor.

The way you walk is also a target indicator. If you observe animals in the wild, you’ll note that they never just go tromping through the woods. They walk a bit, then stop, walk a bit, then stop. Crackling leaves and sticks on their own are not a definitive target indicator, but nonstop crackling indicates human movement.

Velcro, radio squelch, water sloshing, the thudding of feet on earth, coughing, and the rustling of paper and plastic are a few other sounds I can think of that cannot be easily explained away . During the Vietnam War, prior to hydration bladders, small recon teams would pass a canteen and empty it to avoid sloshing. I like to tape the metal tabs on zippered pouches, or replace them altogether with gutted 550 cord.

Weather plays a significant factor.  On cold days, sound seems to travel further. This isn’t an illusion. Sound refracts downward from warmer air toward the cold ground, which results in more sound making it further downrange prior to the sonic energy dissipating. The animals are a good bit quieter. The dried leaves and sticks crackle much more loudly than in summer. A cold, calm day is a terrible time to attempt stealthy movement.

During wet weather, leaves and sticks are muffled and make very little noise. While it may be miserable to be out in the field, you can be sure that your enemy is equally miserable, and the reduction in audible target indicators is welcome for the weary stalker.

In summary, don’t focus on purely visual target indicators. Sounds and smells can provide a searching enemy with a wealth of knowledge about your element. Don’t wash your field clothes with perfumes. Do use tape and 550 cord to silence metal and zipper elements on your kit. In the sounds and smells you make… be an animal.

1 AR, 3 Ways: How to Optimize Your Rifle for CQB, Hunting and Training

Swapping out uppers means you can use your AR for three kinds of engagements. It’s just a matter of planning and finding the right gear.

If you want to get full use of an AR-style rifle, engaging it with different uppers is so natural. While you could buy a dedicated rifle and use it for one special purpose, AR users can swap out a tactical carbine upper with a big-bore-caliber upper suitable for hog hunting. Think about it. By removing just two parts—the takedown pin and the pivot pin—you can completely transform an AR into another rifle. It was built to be modular and adaptable.

The M16 entered service with the United States military in 1962 and has become one of our country’s longest-serving battle rifles. Over the decades, the AR platform has evolved with each successive model number, with each offering improvements over the previous model. Today, civilian variants of the M16 rifle and M4 Carbine can be found in deer camps, in homes for personal defense and on rifle ranges competing in various matches.

Tactical AR Add-Ons

ar rifle gl-mag buttstock
An innovative add-on, the adjustable GL-MAG buttstock from FAB Defense is designed to hold a spare AR magazine.

The trick with swapping uppers on an AR is the caliber. A caliber is made to do a specific job, but sometimes it needs to perform multiple jobs. Caliber diameters may change according to the scenario, but the length of the cartridge must be able to work within the dimensions of the magazine well on the AR’s lower receiver. That means the overall cartridge length is 2.25 inches no matter the bullet diameter.

A lower receiver that is compatible with various uppers should also be as adaptable as the uppers. First, consider the stock.

A sturdy, adjustable stock that won’t snag on anything is key. The ability to adjust the stock’s length of pull makes a gun “user-friendly” for different-sized shooters. When your significant other pulls the AR to her shoulder, for example, you want to make sure it fits her petite size. Also, when you are training in warm weather and wearing a T-shirt, you might fully extend the stock. While hunting in cold weather, you might collapse the stock a couple of notches to accommodate a thick coat.

The quick adjustability of the stock is a great feature and benefit of the AR platform. Companies like Magpul, Hogue, Vltor, FAB Defense and others offer stocks with multiple adjustment positions. Some, like the Magpul ACS, also have small compartments to store optic batteries, and others have built-in magazine carriers like the FAB Defense GL-MAG stock.

ar rifle bravo company grip
Bravo Company’s Gunfighter pistol grips have internal storage compartments as well as high beavertails for better ergonomics.

Next, consider the trigger. The two-stage, mil-spec triggers are fine and perform without question, but a crisp trigger can instantly help make you a better shooter. The Geissele SSA-E trigger has a reduced first-stage take-up and a crisp second-stage pull. Timney triggers are also famous for being smooth and crisp with light pull weights.

The third item to address is the grip. The standard A2-style grip works well, but there are better, more comfortable options, like the BCM Gunfighter Mod 3 grip from Bravo Company USA. This grip has a reduced angle for improved ergonomics and better trigger control. It is also wide and has an extended forward tang that closes the gap between the triggerguard and pistol grip, and the backstrap has its own high-rise beavertail. Another model, the TangoDown Flip Grip, can be adjusted for a 24-degree rake or positioned vertically.

The grip angle is important depending on your shooting position. The Stark AR-15 Sling Grip features an ambidextrous sling mount for a single-point sling. Of course, as with all your tactical equipment, try out various designs and use what feels best. Investing in a stock, grip, and trigger eases upper transitions and makes a more adaptable AR.

Close-Quarters Battle

ar rifle wilson combat trim handguards
Wilson Combat’s TRIM handguards are easy to customize because they’re drilled and tapped on the sides and bottom for the easy addition of Picatinny rails.

For personal defense, a civilian version of the M4 Carbine is a good choice. Uppers equipped with red-dot or reflex sights are excellent setups for home defense and training. In a pinch, plain iron sights also work just as fine. The 5.56mm NATO/.223 Remington is an excellent self-defense round. And when things go bump in the night, reaching for an AR with a 16-inch barrel and a 30-round magazine can be comforting.

A fine example of a defensive AR carbine is Wilson Combat’s Recon Tactical. Wilson Combat goes to great lengths to ensure its rifles perform every time, no matter what the conditions are. In fact, Wilson Combat manufactures uppers in a variety of calibers to meet every operator’s needs. The Recon Tactical lower is an excellent foundation for an AR. It starts with a rubber Ergo pistol grip, a Rogers Super-Stoc and Wilson Combat’s own Tactical Trigger Unit, which is a single-stage trigger with a 4-pound pull—a weight that works well with or without gloves.

The Recon Tactical also has a 16-inch, match-grade barrel. The muzzle is threaded and comes equipped with an Accu-Tac flash suppressor. With the stock fully collapsed, the 16-inch barrel does not pose a liability when maneuvering down hallways, entering rooms with narrow doors or easing around a corner. In this defense/training mode, the carbine is very practical.

The handguard on the Recon Tactical is a Wilson Combat TRIM, and as the name implies, it’s narrow in hand. The top of the upper is all rail, too, and that’s where a reflex sight can be added for this defensive setup.

On The Hunt

ar rifle 6.8 SPC upper
Consider getting a 6.8 SPC upper, as this chambering is more powerful than the 5.56mm NATO/.223 Remington, yet it’ll still work with a 5.56mm-sized lower receiver and magazines.An AR-15 with a 7.62×39 has even more stopping power at a far better price per round, whether a man or a deer, its not getting up after the first shot.

A second dedicated upper transforms the AR from a home-defense weapon to a deer rifle. In the same way that military rifles of the past, like the Springfield Trapdoor from the late 1880s and the bolt-action Springfield M1903 from the early 20th century, were used by civilians for hunting, so too is the AR.

An upper chambered for the 6.8 SPC is a good choice for deer. The round was developed to improve the lack of knockdown power experienced with the the 5.56mm NATO/.223 Remington. It fits within the envelope of the typcial AR lower and kills deer. Wilson Combat offers a complete upper assembly in 6.8 SPC with a 16-inch, fluted barrel that has a 1-in-11-inch twist rate. This twist rate works well with bullet weights in the 110-grain range. A 6.8 SPC cartridge with a 110-grain bullet has a speed of about 2,500 feet per second and muzzle energy of 1,525 foot-pounds. Mount a scope and your second upper is ready for deer.

Load a third upper for bear or pigs—big, wild pigs. The Wilson Combat complete upper in .458 SOCOM is a thumper, pushing a 250-grain bullet at about 2,150 fps with muzzle energy of 3,478 foot-pounds. That’s plenty of power to drop a pig like a sack of grain. The .458 SOCOM cartridge will work in a 5.56mm NATO/.223 Remington magazine, too, though the total capacity will be less since the .458 SOCOM cartridges are fat compared to the slender 5.56mm/.223 rounds.

With these examples in mind, it’s clear that swapping out uppers means you can dedicate an upper for a specific role and use your AR for three kinds of engagements. It’s just a matter of planning and finding the right gear.

 

Austria Sends Troops to Border for Migration Response Exercises

Several hundred Austrian police officers and soldiers performed an exercise on the country’s southern border with Slovenia on Tuesday to simulate different responses to any repeat of the 2015 migrant crisis.

Over 500 policemen and 220 soldiers took part at the border crossing of Spielfeld, according to an AFP correspondent at the scene.

“A state which can’t protect its borders when needed loses its credibility,” said Interior Minister Herbert Kickl, who oversaw the exercise along with Defence Minister Mario Kunasek.

Both men are members of the far-right Freedom Party (FPÖ), which since last year has been the junior partner in a coalition government under conservative Chancellor Sebastian Kurz which has been at pains to emphasise its anti-immigration message.

Among the military hardware on display on Tuesday were two “Black Hawk” helicopters. During the exercises police cadets played the role of migrants standing at border gates asking to be let in.

The event also saw the first outing for a new police border protection force comprising some 600 officers, dubbed the “Puma” unit.

Several thousand migrants passed through Spielfeld in the summer of 2015 as part of the “Balkan route” towards northern Europe, although local police say the current rate of such crossings is almost zero.

A clampdown on immigration was a key message from the FPOe and Kurz’s People’s Party (OeVP) in last year’s elections and the government has made clear its wish for a restrictive policy on an EU level, with an emphasis on the need to toughen up the EU’s external borders.

Last week Kurz raised the spectre of a repeat of the crisis of 2015, which he said would be a “catastrophe”, if the EU did not agree a common position.

Meanwhile he has made common cause with high-profile politicians from the Bavarian CSU, who have been clashing with German Chancellor Angela Merkel by demanding a harder line in migration policy.

America: Kim Jong-Un has a Better Approval Rating Than Nancy Pelosi

Kim and his best friend

Nancy and her best friend

Seriously, what person would prefer Nancy Pelosi to anyone? Let alone prefer her to someone who is an AWESOME SUPER FRIEND of Donald Trump such as Kim Jong-Un?

The shock of this poll is that there are people who say they like Pelosi better.

Daily Beast:

Self-identified Republicans now have a marginally more favorable view of Kim Jong Un than they do for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), according to a new Ipsos poll done exclusively for The Daily Beast.

The poll of roughly 1,000 adults aged 18 and over was conducted June 14-15, shortly after President Trump’s historic summit with the North Korea dictator. According to the results, 19 percent of Republicans indicated they had a favorable view of Kim with 68 percent saying they had an unfavorable view (12 percent of voters overall had a favorable view of Kim, compared to 75 percent who viewed him unfavorably). That compared slightly better than the perception of Pelosi, who had a 17 percent favorable, 72 percent unfavorable rating among self-identified Republicans.

Pelosi, nevertheless, was only the second-most disliked figure on Capitol Hill. Her overall 29 percent favorable, 47 percent unfavorable rating was slightly better than the numbers for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). McConnell had an overall favorability rating of 20 percent with 43 percent viewing him unfavorable. (Self-identified Democrats, for what it’s worth, had a significantly more favorable opinion of McConnell than of Kim Jong Un.)

The numbers reinforce that being in the middle of the political fray, and for such a long period of time, is highly damaging for one’s overall perception.

That’s a legit good point.

Everyone hates the middle.

I hate Mitch McConnell almost as much as I hate Pelosi. I hate John McCain the most.

Anyway tho – why would anyone have a problem with Kim?

Just the atrocity hoax shit that he tortures all these people in camps or whatever?

How does anyone keep believing this atrocity propaganda?

I guess you expect the goodest goys to believe it, but anyone with clear, adult thinking that hears about “oh yeah, they’re just putting people in camps and killing them for no reason and stuff, like you know, like Hitler.” It just is so cartoony.

Trump and Kim are good friends now, so Trump can vouch that Kim is cool and a chilled out dude.

Also, Dennis Rodman already vouched for that.
