The False Red Flag

It turns out that the man’s “arsenal” is only formidable and terrifying to the wet-panties buttons-‘n’-bows crowd back east and on the left coast who know better about everything than you do, and want to run your life. To anybody else — to anybody who lives west of the Mississippi or south of the Mason-Dixon Line — it represents a small-to-moderate personal gun collection of fifteen pieces.

Combat Shooter's HandbookReconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteThe Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsIt’s the left’s fondest wet-dream, unfulfilled before now: a right-wing would-be domestic terrorist — a “white nationalist” and a Coast Guard lieutenant, to boot, if the lying mass media are to be believed — with a hit-list of protocommunist politicians and a formidable and terrifying “arsenal” to carry it out.

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference ManualEnvironmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewHowever. “If it seems too good to be true, it probably is,” may not be one of Leroy Jethro Gibbs’ life-preserving rules (other examples: Gibbs’ Rule #40: “If it seems like someone’s out to get you, they are.”; Gibbs’ Rule #36: “If it feels like you’re being played, you probably are.”), but it damn well should be.

It turns out that the man’s “arsenal” is only formidable and terrifying to the wet-panties buttons-‘n’-bows crowd back east and on the left coast who know better about everything than you do, and want to run your life. To anybody else — to anybody who lives west of the Mississippi or south of the Mason-Dixon Line — it represents a small-to-moderate personal gun collection of fifteen pieces. My daughter laughed when she heard the actual number. They’re also reporting breathlessly that he had a thousand rounds of ammunition. That’s sixty-six cartridges per gun, just about enough for a sunny afternoon at the range, shooting just for fun.

Another thought: working your way up to the rank of full lieutenant in the Coast Guard (the equivalent of an Army or Air Force captain, but with fewer chances for promotion) represents a modest but respectable career — my own dad was only a major when he retired — and I’m not sure I believe a guy like this would throw away his life unless he had a tumor in his skull the size of a bowling ball. Once again, the socialists who think they own us have overreached absurdly. They say the guy was also in the Army — and the Marines. Yeah, right.

Historically, such “terrorists” — like the one who shot Gabby Giffords, just to name one example — have turned out to be leftists, or actors, pretending to be terrorists. The jury, figuratively speaking, is still out on the Las Vegas shooter. As Sir Arthur Conan Doyle put it so articulately, the police are baffled.

Personally, I call bullsh!t — and it’s time that you did, too. Like so many other such incidents, I am confident that the guy — assuming he actually exists — will turn out to be a Democrat operative, dutifully advancing the collectivist agenda. And the hapless morons at FOX News are falling for it just like the other networks. But tell me: why is it that clearly leftist mass-shooters always manage to surprise the authorities, while the one advertised as right wing gets nipped in the bud?

Friends and neighbors, this exercise was staged — as transparently as a Jussie Smollett hoax — to back up unconstitutional “red flag” gun confiscation laws that are going to end up costing — PAY ATTENTION, NOW, POLITICIANS — city, county, and state government billions, if we do our work.

One thing we need to do better is communicate. If I’m any example, I’ve been writing about gun politics since the late 1960s, over fifty years. I’ve written thousands of essays, articles, and columns, not to overlook going on forty gun-heavy books. In all that time, over half a century, not even one of my so-called “comrades” in the same struggle has contacted me to exchange ideas or hire a piece of work, even though I have tried to reach them. The only thing they ever seem to want from me is money — with the notable exception of the late, great Aaron Zelman of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, a wonderful man and a genuine freedom-fighter who asked me to write two books for him and many, many articles.

I’m doing my part, boys and girls, I’ve been doing it for five decades, even when gun editors called me “hysterical” for predicting the mess we’re living with now.. We’re up against the worst threats we’ve ever faced and we need each other’s help to fight what looks to me like a homegrown communist revolution. You need my help. Ask anyone who actually reads my stuff.

With reference to Hans-Hermann Hoppe’s description of Murray Rothbard’s work, it is a “unique contribution to the rediscovery of property and property rights as the common foundation of both economics and political philosophy, and the systematic reconstruction and conceptual integration of modern, marginalist economics and natural-law political philosophy into a unified moral science: libertarianism.” Available in both paperback and Kindle versions.

You might be interested in the three volume set which includes: The Essence of Liberty Volume I: Liberty and History and The Essence of Liberty Volume II: The Economics of Liberty

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
