Preparedness Notes for Saturday — October 31, 2020

As Christians, our family does not celebrate the pagan Halloween. Since October 31st is also Reformation Day, that is what we celebrate, here at the Rawles Ranch.

The Clock is Ticking: The big Pre-Election Sale at Elk Creek Company will end in just three days. Consider this: Pre-1899 guns are the last bastion of firearms ownership privacy, since they are entirely outside of Federal jurisdiction. These are guns that you can buy and that you can later simply hand to your children or grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or whomever, across state lines, with no paperwork whatsoever. (Whether it is a gift, sale, or trade.) Most of the guns in our inventory are both collectible and practical shooters. If the Democrats prevail, then the current rush of sales will probably turn into absolute panic buying. So, don’t hesitate. Order soon! is now advertising that they will have another batch of my latest book The Ultimate Prepper’s Survival Guide on or about November 14th. (They’ve been sold out since October 21st.) They are now taking orders for their second batch of the First Printing. This may be their last batch until the Second Printing arrives January or February, so don’t hesitate to place an order for your gift copies.

Round 91 of our nonfiction writing contest ends on November 30th, so get busy writing and e-mail us your entry. Remember that there is a 1,500-word minimum, and that articles on practical “how-to” skills for survival have an advantage in the judging.

    “I would encourage all American Partisan readers to study the two Daily Mail articles linked below very carefully. The millions who are fleeing Paris, and the millions who are preparing to flee London, do not all have standing invitations from rural cousins to come out and stay a while. They have no plan other than “get to the country, then figure something out.” This tweet from the Daily Mail article gives you one idea of an evacuation plan: “Take over a mansion.””

  2. A BLESSED Festival Day of the Reformation to you, J.W.! We celebrated here, by installing a new Pastor to serve a couple of LCMS congregations in western MD this afternoon. 😉

  3. Violent Rioter or Peaceful Protestor? – Critical Mas(s) Ep. 02 [Massad Ayoob]

    In this episode, Mas talks about the evolving nature of mob violence, the co-opting of legitimate political protest as cover for rioting and criminal behavior, and the role that popular rifle platforms such as the AR-15 should and should not play in civil defense against societal breakdown and invasions of private property.

    1. I just read this article, giving you the link and first paragraphs.

      I wonder how it relates to your link.

      WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump portrays the hundreds of people arrested nationwide in protests against racial injustice as violent urban left-wing radicals. But an Associated Press review of thousands of pages of court documents tells a different story.

      Very few of those charged appear to be affiliated with highly organized extremist groups, and many are young suburban adults from the very neighborhoods Trump vows to protect from the violence in his reelection push to win support from the suburbs.

      Attorney General William Barr has urged his prosecutors to bring federal charges on protesters who cause violence and has suggested that rarely used sedition charges could apply. And the Department of Justice has pushed for detention even as prisons across the U.S. were releasing high-risk inmates because of COVID-19 and prosecutors had been told to consider the risks of incarceration during a pandemic when seeking detention.

      Carry on

      1. I never believe a thing that AP puts out. As far as I’m concerned if they are out there participating they are radicals. And they may live in areas President Trump is claiming to protect, their mommas just don’t know where they are.
        A lot like your pet cat which kills wantonly at night when free from you, and you never know.
        Or the wild dogs in Iraq which are never petted or cared for, but live all over the cities and take a child now and then. What say you?

        1. Thanks for your note, Batteau. Were you with First MarDiv in Iraq? Or, maybe I should start by asking if you were in Iraq.

          I always assume First MarDiv since that’s who I was with part of my time in fifty years back.

          I hope you’re well, brother.

          Carry on

          1. Your comment seems to be a challenge. What I will tell you is what I’ve posted previously. I served in Iraq during OIF as a DOS/DOD contractor.
            My 2nd EOM, after 24 months in country, nearly all of which was outside the wire, was August, 2009. There during “Surge of 2007.”
            My group was embedded with several USMC units, as well as with several US Army units, depending on assignments. Most of final year I worked Sadr City.
            Yes, I served 4 years in the Corps.

          2. No challenge, Batteau. I had forgotten what you posted before. Perhaps I missed something in my tone. Please let me know where you saw challenge.

            You are home and safe, I assume. That is what counts.

            As I posted the other day, I hope you’re well, brother.

            Carry on

    1. A wonderful video. The man admits to his internal struggle in slaughtering livestock.

      The comments are also open about that. Many pray before slaughter. Wondering what you each do to prepare for slaughter.

      Carry on
