“And God said unto Noah, ‘The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth. Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms though shalt make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without pitch.’”
– Genesis 13:13-14 KJV
Let us give you a little background about ourselves. X. Liberal is a man with athletic build who played ice hockey in college, where he was educated with a master’s degree in accounting, and is a CPA. X. Liberal’s wife, China Doll, is the only thing in our home that is “Made in China”. She is educated with a PhD, serves as the family anchor, and is scripturally rooted, a prayer warrior, God fearing, speaks three languages, knows advanced calculus, and keeps an efficient household in order while cooking healthy meals. Both of us are Christians, love life, love each other, and love the Lord.
A Marine once corrected me when I asked, “So you’re an X. Marine?” He quipped, “No, an X. Marine is someone who served and that wants nothing to do with the corps, its creed, or brotherhood. Once a Marine always a Marine… I’m a former Marine!” Enough said, “I’m an X. Liberal.” As for my wife, China Doll, it should be self explanatory.
In 2011, after reading JWR’s book How To Survive The End Of The World As We Know It, I had a stark realization when he contrasted moral relativism to God’s moral code written in stone—the 10 Commandments. I was searching. I had just witnessed my career field in accountancy yield unattainable results that my father and grandfathers’ careers yielded: That is, I wasn’t going to be able to retire, provide for a family, have family medical benefits all as my forefathers had. The American Dream I realized, for my generation, is now unattainable.
There are two primary catalysts for this societal debacle, and this will offend some, so get ready.
Reason #1- Feminism
[I’ve written on this site before, but here’s the recap and some added text.]
In 1960: female employment rate was 10%, and the divorce rate was 10%; Today: the female employment rate is 60%-70% as is the divorce rate at 60%-70%. By men providing for their wives and their wives not wanting to toil in a man’s field, the American family is secure.
In 1960, abortion was illegal. Today, 60,000,000 baby murders have occurred legally by the woman’s right, which by law is not a man’s right to choose.
Gender Equality; It’s Not Equal
Over $1 trillion USD has been sued out of corporate American for gender equality, discrimination, sexual harassment, offense, slander, liable, and sexism initiated by women. Men have not in the past sued the employers that feed their families. 91% of child custody cases are won by women. No Fault Divorce is associated with large wealth transfers.
Domestic violence/stalking/harassment are almost exclusively filed by women against manhood. Domestic button-pushing usually is never in those legal proceedings. Consented unmarried sex is now used to topple manhood many decades later. Sexual harassment is now construed as women liberating themselves from their marriage bed. Men have longer prison sentencing for the same crime. Welfare, healthcare, education, medical research, and abortion tax dollars are almost exclusively doled out to women. Women are labeled the minority but are the majority in high paying, high prestigious managerial career fields.
According to the IRS, women do not support a stay-at-home spouse but 30% of American women do not earn a wage and are supported by wage earning men. Ninety percent (90%) of the military is comprised of men. Ninety-one percent (91%) of patents are granted to men. All buildings and roads are constructed by men, and sewer lines, electrical, and plumbing has all been laid by men. Men do the most back-break, life-shortening, and riskiest careers. Men have designed everything, built everything, and fight all our wars, including the next war. Women have only entered into their husband’s toil when men made weatherproofed buildings with defined comfortable cubicles. Women have weaponized human resource departments to go to war with the family provider—men. It’s not been equal.
Okay anyone offended yet? Ladies!
Example From To Kill A Mockingbird
I always like to give this example from the novel To Kill A Mockingbird. If Atticus Finch had a wife and she went to law school [on Atticus’s dime, of course], then she nails a shingle up, Atticus’s clientele would be cut in half. Now she’s happy that she’s earning money—exactly equal to her husband except without supporting the stay-at-home spouse configuration. However, something is bothering her, because she realizes she is not being fulfilled as a woman, created by God to be cared for and provided for by her loving husband.
Her income now has to go to pay for the family bills, as her husband’s income is now cut in half [because she took half of his defined number of clients in the small town of 5000]. She feels equal enough, showing up the same time as her husband and drinking the same morning coffee, so, she does what her woman’s intuition tells her about a man not pulling his own weight in providing for the family, she files for divorce.
After that bliss wears off from that immediate solution, another stark realization is spurred– she’s all alone now. So she wins a child custody battle by implementing domestic button pushing and obtaining a domestic violence charge on Atticus. Now, after that bliss wears off, another stark realization occurs– that she’s on her own now and in order to capture a full 100% household income to support her because she wants to be equal to a man, she sues and obtains child support until the children are age 21.
Once that bliss wears off, her heart tells her she’s in need of a companion now. She realizes quickly that she can obtain multiple boyfriends per week to buy her things just for sleeping over a night here and there, because the town is replete with sexually starved men now that she and her girlfriends toiled in their husband’s field inadvertently sexually harassing men by liberating themselves from marriage—the marriage bed.
Her pay-to-play scheme isn’t working for her. She’s not satisfied any longer. Reflecting on the bad morals of men residing in the town, hopping from bedroom to bedroom due to having no wives and no sexual outlet, she has a few meetings with her corporate HR Director and fires men in the role of family patriarch from her law firm. Now her job is secure as the senior attorney of the firm.
She Will Not Give Up the Notion of Being Equal To Manhood
She’s stressed, but she will not give up the notion of being equal to manhood. She looks into her grim future of earning an entire household income, each day, paying insurances, mortgage, autos, utilities, food every month, and doing this for the next 50 years up to and including grabbing benefits and retirement for herself. Her stress is at a level beyond belief and she’s now pregnant again, out of wedlock. She knows that will cost too much money and become such a great burden to her, so she finds immediate relief from her problems at the local Planned Parenthood office.
Her children no longer call her blessed, as she threw their father out of the home, so she files a restraining order against him to blacken in the name of their father and hopefully win the appreciation of her children back. Their father is incarcerated through her accusations in a court of law.
Feeling overwhelmed and extremely stressed out, she conjures up an early retirement plan, through which she will wave her worries goodbye from her self-inflicted wounds that have come from refusing God’s role of a matriarch settling her spirit under her husband’s spiritual authority. So she files a sexual harassment lawsuit after seducing her boss over a course of a few months. From those court winnings, the law firm is bankrupt and all patriarch are on unemployment.
However, now she’s home full time, with a lifelong income, with her children, and erasing her memories each day from having divorced, aborted, sued, incarcerated, and terminated men, sexually harassed, stolen children from their father, taken tax dollars in the form of governmental handouts, tarnished men with police records, and utterly destroyed human society. But in the aftermath, she calls herself equal and elated that finally she has peace of mind of having obtained gender equality!
Now no one woman has conjured up this much societal destruction. But on the whole, the feminist movement has!
My wife will point out, “I wonder how many divorces, abortions, lawsuits, terminations, incarcerations, harassment, child custody battles, corporate bottom lines ruined, new corporate policies implemented, sexual harassment on manhood, and essentially families destroyed just to place that woman on that billboard smiling in a man’s role?”
The Proverbs 31 Woman
She also illustrates the Proverbs 31 woman who owns/manages a field to supplement her husband’s family income. This illustration includes her loving husband in her picture of family rather than “single Momhood”. The Bible doesn’t illustrate that the Proverbs 31 woman fires all the patriarch family providers in her field, files lawsuits for defamation of character, and hurt feelings, murders babies in her womb, divorces her husband, incarcerates the men in the community by legislating laws in a woman’s favor, and then sets traps, and finally liberates herself from the marriage bed. Feminists always bring up the Proverbs 31 woman to a conservative woman as why they are allowed to work. Are feminists working or dismantling God’s functioning society?
Get ready for TEOTWAWKI, because taking women from God’s blessed role of matriarch and placing them into the role of patriarch—[the Left’s made-up gender equality plight to destroy human society for none other than to illustrate that Christian principles and that Christian principled U.S. Constitution needs to be thrown in the trash], will only incur God’s curses, not God’s blessings.
Reason #2– California
According to a NY Times article, tens of millions of American families have been displaced from California to other states. Liberal, anti-American, and outright Communist policies set into motion through the far-Left run Sacramento legislature have caused sever upheaval in human affairs.
The Bennington Flag flies over our property in the American Redoubt. We will not allow the American flag to wave with the California star [#31]. Unlike California Snowflakes, we’ll not desecrate the American flag by an act of tearing that star off.
Ongoing California Exodus
Everyone in this ongoing California Exodus, such as us, left for some reason. Below are a few:
- The People’s Republic of California (TPROC) has the most number of citizens locked up in jail [America has the most per capita locked up than any nation of the world, which places TPROC as the top state/area on the face of the planet for people in prison per capita].
- Personally, they have the most harassing and damning law enforcement on the world canvas, with zero tolerance for anyone not adhering to their Communist manifesto written into law daily.
- Freedom of Speech [1st Amendment] is gone with their Silicon Valley social media corporations silencing Conservative speech and promoting Leftist speech throughout the world.
- Right to Bear Arms [2nd Amendment] is now gone with harassing/menacing gun laws [no suppressors, no assault rifles, small magazine sizes, can’t transport without permit, must register guns, background checks on ammunition, et cetera].
- Workforces are so hostile that Human Resources are weaponized and employees are terminated on a worker’s word alone. There is no due process of law; you’re just fired.
- Habeas Corps is now gone along with Miranda rights.
- TPROC held the highest divorce rate in the world [Orange County held a 90% divorce rate] until they implemented “shack up” laws—hundreds and even thousands of sexual partners without ever a trail of divorce.
- TPROC blatantly violates federal laws for sanctuary cities, infringement on 2A and 1A-free speech.
- 9th Circuit court holds the most radical Leftist Federal Judges legislating laws from the bench instead of interpreting the Constitution, as the Founders had intended.
- TPROC boasts of writing the most laws, red tape, policies, fines, levies, penalties for any crime imaginable, such as in starting a new business, driving a motor vehicle, obtaining a library card, renting an apartment, or walking down the beach.
- Homeowner’s associations are on board with harassment constantly to homeowners.
- Smoking cigarettes in public is banned in all areas of public space in Orange County. [Founders had tobacco plantations and the Left wants them punished for being Christian.] On the other hand, they want to legalize marijuana.So much for second hand smoke, where they won their billions in punitive damages.
- TPROC has the highest taxes per capita, including sales and property, though it has the most illiterate in public schools.
- They are the highest debtor state.
- TPROC has the most militarized law enforcement agencies with the least armed citizenry.
- TPROC has the most harassment granted to homeschooling parents than anywhere in the world.
I’ll stop right here, as this is beginning to look like the Declaration of Independence with all the Founders’ grievances.
TPROC is building a massive surveillance infrastructure between California and Nevada, but it won’t build one between Mexico and California. I’m afraid that the cliché will take root, “So goes California, so goes the nation.” This is a true Communist state on American soil with so many displaced families, numbering in the tens-of-millions, and common citizens just like us, injured beyond repair. Many families, such as ours, have become broke financially and gutted spiritually by TPROC.
Both the state of California for its assault on Christian principles and U.S. Constitution and Women’s Rights/Feminism for incurring more devastation than all Americas foreign/domestic conflicts combined should be on the Domestic Terrorist Watch List. At least they should be highlighted as a threat to national security with this much destruction in their wakes.
Why anyone would want to live in the inner cities is beyond comprehension. Liberals are requiring their “controlled citizens” to be arranged inside of carefully mapped and planned city infrastructures under the role of City Planner. The public schools, libraries, police stations, parks, dog poop parks, fire departments, stores, office buildings, roads, and warehouses are strategically placed for the benefit of camera surveillance to give oversight by the state. Public schools, governmental buildings, and city gathering spaces are all to be absent of God or else fines, lawsuits, or incarcerations are enacted.
The only place for God is inside the carefully planned city church and God or His word is no longer allowed outside those four church walls. Otherwise, there is contact/apprehension by the police. Waving Old Glory inside the city boundaries is also a no-no and regulated by law enforcement and homeowner’s associations. Why anyone would want to live in a public “concentration camp” brings wisdom to JWR’s words, “Don’t get on the bus.”
Due to OPSEC, my wife and I felt it would be best if we didn’t show actual footage/pictures of our build, location, design structure, background mountain ranges, or soil composition. You-all would disown us if we did. The photos herein are from un-copyrighted sources off the Internet.
Well, you’ve guessed it. The federal government isn’t confiscating beachfront property down at Laguna Beach, TPROC, because apparently it isn’t worth preserving for future generations. It must be those post card picture scenes inside the American Redoubt as why the U.S. government is conserving/confiscating so much land.
The American Redoubt
It’s so beautiful here in the American Redoubt, breathing mountainous crisp clean air, surrounded by low population density, low crime, teeming wildlife, fish/fowl, fresh water sources, open expanse of skies with galaxies almost at your fingertips nightly, historical museums/battle fields, law enforcement which upholds the constitutional rights of U.S. citizens, judges who don’t legislate from the bench, conservative legislatures, second amendment without infringement, homeschooling galore, and, yes, plenty of conservative hard-working Christians of all colors, nationalities, backgrounds, and political affiliations [where liberal/Democrats are the minority].
Resembling the Pilgrims
As our family, resembling the Pilgrims whom were run out of their homes through religious/political persecution in England/Holland, we’ve entered into a land of plenty and beauty. But this newfound freedom we’ve come into, due to Liberals in TPROC purposefully run conservatives/Christians from their homes, is not without trials/tribulations to overcome, which is to be expected.
The American Redoubt is not for the pampered, latte drinking, latest fashion dressed, metrosexual, nark to law enforcement regarding your neighbors’ conduct, and utmost conformer to liberal edicts seasoned with the latest social justice cause. Our diaries are chocked full of adventures, overcoming, and nonconforming to the liberal high society.
Our pastor once illustrated, “The only thing you take to Heaven with you are relationships.” After becoming a student of this Prepper way of life, we’ve stepped up our game with the Lord and are living a life of no regrets. Thanks JWR/family for making the sacrifices and setting the example!
Tomorrow, we will share about our move finances/budget, the property, and begin detailing our building process.
