Preparedness Notes for Monday — January 18, 2021

Kevin Costner, who starred in Open Range, was born on this day in 1955.

Today, another review article by our redoubtable Field Gear Editor, Pat Cascio.


    1. Fear lots of fear:

      First this: “Biden’s transition team claims there is a very real fear that members of the national guard who support President Trump might kill Biden during the inauguration so they’ve asked commanders to confiscate all ammo and magazines from the soldiers.”

      Now this: Defense officials in Washington, D.C., are concerned about an insider attack from service members deployed to Washington, D.C., for President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, prompting the FBI to vet all 25,000 National Guard troops in the city, Fox News has learned.

      Now they are running for cover “from an external threat” a homeless camp fire lol
      Literally running. What a joke from the most loved and voted

      1. The threat has precedent. I think, in just the last fifty years, Anwar Sadat and Indiira Gandhi were assassinated by people entrusted to protect them. I’ll have to look that up and get back to you.

        Carry on

        1. Some search results…
          Assassination of Anwar Sadat

          On 6 October 1981, a victory parade was held in Cairo to commemorate the eighth anniversary of Egypt’s crossing of the Suez Canal.[1] Sadat was protected by four layers of security and eight bodyguards, and the army parade should have been safe due to ammunition-seizure rules. As Egyptian Air Force Mirage jets flew overhead, distracting the crowd, Egyptian Army soldiers and troop trucks towing artillery paraded by. One truck contained the assassination squad, led by Lieutenant Khalid Islambouli. As it passed the tribune, Islambouli forced the driver at gunpoint to stop. From there, the assassins dismounted and Islambouli approached Sadat with three hand grenades concealed under his helmet. Sadat stood to receive his salute; Anwar’s nephew Talaat El Sadat later said, “The president thought the killers were part of the show when they approached the stands firing, so he stood saluting them”,[14] whereupon Islambouli threw all his grenades at Sadat, only one of which exploded (but fell short), and additional assassins rose from the truck, indiscriminately firing AK-47 assault rifles into the stands until they had exhausted their ammunition, and then attempted to flee. After Sadat was hit and had fallen to the ground, people threw chairs around him to shield him from the hail of bullets.

          Assassination of Indira Gandhi

          Operation Blue Star left a deep mark in the thinking of Beant Singh and Satwant Singh, both part of the Indian Elite Forces who served as bodyguards for Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. Satwant Singh always worked the late shifts and Beant Singh worked the early morning shifts as the Prime Minister’s security. On 31 October 1984, Satwant Singh faked a stomach illness and swapped duties with another guard so that they could work together to execute their plan.[citation needed]

          That morning, at approximately 9:00 AM, as Gandhi walked from her house, Singh drew a shotgun and fired three shots into Gandhi’s abdomen. As she fell to the ground, Satwant Singh fired all 30 rounds from his Sten submachine gun into her body.[6][7]

          So, the DC folks may not be paranoid, after all. No matter what happens out there, we must stay in the saddle. Our work is close by with those we love.
          Carry on

    1. Quoted from the article:

      FCC Enforcement Bureau Sends:
      Posted by NC Scout
      Jan 17, 2021

      ”Specifically, the Bureau reminds amateur licensees that they are prohibited from transmitting “communications intended to facilitate a criminal act” or “messages encoded for the purpose of obscuring their meaning.” ”

      The FCC is clearly falling in step with the rising tyranny. What constitutes a ”criminal act” as defined by a tyrannical government.? Answer: Any activity or speech their appointed guard dogs, in this example the FCC, defines or suspects as a potential crime against the state. We are unlikely to beat a federal charge, but if you do beat the ‘rap’, you would not beat the ‘ride’, and the enormous legal fees. Threatening to revoke licenses in an attempt to control patriots. It is akin to threatening to take registered guns. And now radios, because you may speak or act in such a way that the bureaucracy finds suspicious. Amateur radio operators would naturally self censor on all occasions least their comrades, or closet ‘commie-rats’, might contact the FCC with a report of suspicious activity. As one might have an unpapered rifle elsewhere, I would have spare radio equipment elsewhere. Credit card purchases of radios, and an Amateur license is like registering your radios, and your capabilities. Let them take your license only.

      Yes, the FCC is currently busy with regulating cell phone, internet, and other digital traffic, yet as deemed necessary to control patriots, they would likely be given billions of FRN’s (Federal Reserve Notes), and install a new set of teeth. The ‘demon-rats’ know that without commo, there can be no coordination. As a registered radio operator, you are potentially more of a threat than an ordinary patriot who only has a rifle. Potentially, a knowledgeable and motivated radio operator, could do more damage with the radio than a rifle. At some extreme point, licensed radio operators of any kind, or those in known to have purchased radios, could executed or jailed, as those suspected to be intellectuals during the Maoist Revolution were on the mere evidence that they wore glasses. In this comparison, procession of a Technician Class license or a Boafeng, might make one a candidate for similar treatment.

      As of Jan 20, 2021, the Republic is dead. I would make purchase of spare radio equipment and related supplies with cash only. And I would become a regular reader of N.C. Scout’s articles at before that information is deemed subversive. If I were a ‘demon-rat’, I would be going for the guns and radios simultaneously. This threat announced by the FCC at this time, foreshadows a future and aggressive campaign to control the air waves. While they know they cannot easily get the guns, they could go for the radios in any convenient manner as targets of opportunity present themselves. We could be pulled over on an infraction, and then be vulnerable to full a full on search and seizure, at the time of the infraction, or in the future as a subversive patriot with a history deemed as ‘unreliable behavior’. The thinnest pretext can and will be used against us, and well outside of a court of law. Ask the 10’s of millions slaughtered during the cultural revolution that created the current CCP.

      The FCC guard dog clearly wishes to please it’s master, and become fatter. Do not assume that all fellow Amateur radio operators are patriots, and do not hear this whistle blown by the FCC. Power is intoxicating. And power corrupts. The depraved seeks absolute power. And that is what being a ‘commie-rat’ is all about.

      Tunnel Rabbit out.

    Probably will be taken down fast. RF Wargames this morning started at 10:00. For the first time they will be done remotely. If you go on google maps and look at Washington you should be able to see the expanding red zone. The natives are getting restless as they don’t like being on lockdown. Fights at checkpoints with military and police.

      We can learn much by watching this video. As a radio guy, I found it very instructive to know that military jammers are selective, powerful, and can be preposition, and operated remotely at a future date. This is why it is important to be able to operate radio across the radio spectrum, and to have a primary, alternative, contingency, and emergency communication plan. I suggest those with the radio equipment learn about N.V.I.S.

      My summary is based upon this report. Video begins at this point.

  2. With the forthcoming installation of a fraudulent gov as well as the continuation of the deep state whose strings are controlled by the globalist cartel, and the soon to be recognized 4th branch of gov, being the media/communications branch, controlling speech and communications throughout the country. They will be tasked with only authorizing speech and thoughts that are approved by the “state”.
    We find ourselves smack dab in the middle of 1930’s Germany.
    Welcome to History 101.2 “The Repeat”.
    Our economy and country soon to be returned to “World Made By Hand”, the series of books by J H Kunstler.
    Thankfully for peppers, we are half way there already.

    Never give up – never obey – never co-operate – never comply.
    Long Live Our republic – Remember the Alamo

  3. Finally some good news – here’s what just changed and why it matters
    Mike Adams
    I hope you’re ready for some good news today. The situation may look dire, but today I bring you details on why it may yet turn out in our favor.

    The military buildup in DC isn’t about protecting Biden from protesters, it’s about turning DC into a holding facility for upcoming military tribunals against the traitors who tried to overthrow America with rigged elections.

    The US Marines are even being deployed there now, and 2,000 National Guard troops were just deputized today as US Marshals with arrest power.

    My Situation Update for today brings you the full details.

    1. i hope Adams is right. i will hate to see it happen but sometimes making things right gets messy….

      however i have a sinking feeling the republic is over and it went with barely a whimper….

      1. It is an emotional roller coaster for sure. There is simply no way to know exactly what is happening. If Trump and the military is be successful, then we shouldn’t be able to.
        And because we can not, then it is possible. To balance your sinking feeling, I will say, that it is not over until it is over. Keep praying. We may get a few more years before the country collapses. There is simply no way to escape our black hole of debt and sin. The country will eventually be judged.
