Survival bloggers, and businesses within the Survival Industry in general, are the perfect example of “alternative” or “alt” media. We’re a rebellious bunch who don’t swallow the “party” line about anything.
We may be the first to believe the elections are rigged. We most certainly see the potential for undemocratic nastiness from our own government. And we know we’re already on a number of watch lists.
So, with an historic presidential election coming up in which the probable winner will not be liked by the survival blogosphere, it’s only natural that she will not like us either…and it’s only natural that a part of our survival plans include surviving the new president and her expected attacks on dissenting voices.
Enter James Wesley, Rawles.
Rawles is as close to a founding father of the modern survival movement as you get. His website, SurvivalBlog, is one of the most read and respected prepper blogs on the Internet. Many credit Rawles’ book “Patriots” as their first prepping textbook even though it is disguised as fiction.
The fact that Rawles fears a Clinton presidency is no secret to anyone reading his blog. That he has divulged a couple of plans for surviving a Clinton presidency should not be a surprise either. In this reposting of a Rawles Clinton plan, we see how he expects a Clinton Administration to attack the 1st Amendment and stamp out dissent to the progressive globalist agenda.
Some readers may recoil at the thought of a U.S. president attacking the Freedom of Speech, but all they need to do is read about Canada, England and many other “free” and democratic countries that now have full limits on what citizens can say by calling it “hate” speech.
This should not be taken lightly.
For those in the Survival Industry, especially bloggers, this is your call to action. For preppers in general, this may not apply, but it is well worth your consideration even if you don’t have the resources or desire.
Trigger Warning! For beginning preppers, you need to take a deep breath and cogitate on this information but not necessarily take action. It can and will be overwhelming, especially if you’re still grappling with the basics of food, first aid and self defense. While this material is important, it takes a back seat to the basics.
Now that Hillary (“Hitlery”) Rodham Clinton (HRC) has received the Democratic Party nomination for president, there is a strong likelihood that she will win the election in November and then be enthroned as president in January of 2017.I predict that she will waste no time in launching an onslaught of punitive new policies via executive orders, presidential memoranda, and policy directives promulgated through her cabinet and Federal agencies to eviscerate our Constitutional rights (most notably the 1st and 2nd Amendments).A key goal this campaign will be silencing dissent in the alternative press and the American blogosphere. Given HRC’s history in government “service,” her outlook on life, her socialist agenda, and her vindictiveness, I anticipate that any or all of the following measures will be undertaken by the HRC Administration:
- The Department of Justice will be used to selectively prosecute dissenters for “hate speech.” For instance, simply objecting to illegal immigration or state sponsored relocation of Muslims will be called “evidence of hate.” They will also declare blogs, news sites, and podcasts to be “public accommodations” and hence saddle them with a long list of new restrictions that would effectively muzzle them from making any comments opposed to HRC’s agenda and “protected” classes. Even the use of “trigger words” could be restricted.
- The Securities Exchange Commission will be used to target dissenters who make any comments about any corporations, mutual funds, or banks, for “operating as unregistered investment advisors.”
- The Federal Election Commission will be used to target Libertarians and other dissenters for “unlawful campaigning.”
- The Federal Communications Commission will use their newly-assumed powers over the Internet to enforce a new radicalized version of the moribund Fairness Doctrine upon bloggers, vloggers (video bloggers), podcasters, as well as newspapermen, magazine writers, and talk radio hosts. Under this new and improved fairness policy, any media outlet that is deemed a public accommodation will be forced to free of charge provide equal space to assorted perverts, leftists, and Social Justice Warriors. Failure to do so will open up these news outlets to both criminal prosecution and costly civil lawsuits.
- The Internal Revenue Service will be used to selectively audit tax filings, levy bank accounts, garnish wages, and refer criminal prosecution of anyone who voices dissent of HRC’s statist/collectivist agenda. Lois Lerner’s group was just the precursor!
- The Environmental Protection Agency will be used to target dissenters who own property with seasonal puddles that could be deemed “wetlands” or creeks that could be arbitrarily declared “navigable waters.”
- The Department of Homeland Security and the Customs and Border Protection agency will be used to target dissenters living within 50 miles of the Mexican or Canadian borders for harassment and intimidation, searching their homes without warrants.
- The Bureau of Indian Affairs and associated Tribal Police will be used to target dissenters living within 100 miles of any Tribal Reservation for harassment and intimidation.
- The Federal Trade Commission will crack down on any bloggers who make posts that might be construed as a product review or product endorsement.
- The Transportation Security Agency will be used to limit the travel of anyone deemed by HRC’s cronies to be an Enemy of the State (through expansion of the No Fly List, Terror Watch List, and Selectee List).
- The U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration will crack down on producers of raw milk and nutritional supplements (and also on the bloggers who promote them).
- The Federal Aviation Administration will prosecute anyone operating unlicensed drones weighing more than just a few ounces.
- The Federal Bureau of Investigation will use both its own agents and paid (or coerced) surrogate agent provocateurs to infiltrate militias, patriot groups, and secessionist organizations. There, they will foment schemes that can be prosecuted under loosely-worded Federal conspiracy laws. (This is precisely what was done with the Bundy Ranch and Malheur Wildlife Refuge protestors.)
- Working in conjunction with the FCC, the U.S. Coast Guard will board any ship within Territorial Waters that they suspect of operating an unlicensed transmitter.
I can see all of this coming, and I refuse to be muzzled. I aim to misbehave. If need be, I will relocate so that I can still blog freely. In anticipation of HRC’s possible upcoming coronation, here are some possible countermeasures for my fellow bloggers to seriously consider:
- Contract for the use of an offshore server in a country that has minimal influence from the United States government, and move your web pages there.
- Get set up for encrypted e-mail. (The free GPG software installed on your local PC works quite well. And for those who are less tech savvy, the paid Unseen.is service in Iceland works fine.)
- Post provisos on your web site that are similar to my own. (Most importantly, these provisos must declare that you do not operate a “public accommodation.”)
- Buy an Iridium satellite telephone and a set of Iridium international power adapters. (Unlike cell phones or other sat phones, calls made from Iridium constellation phones can be traced only to a particular oval satellite “footprint” that measures hundreds of miles across.)
- Buy several inexpensive prepaid “burner” cell phones. Pay greenback cash for these phones, and use an assumed name when you eventually activate them.
- Buy a nondescript camping trailer or RV and quietly (via face-to-face contacts only) develop a “hospitality list” of like-minded families who own parcels of land that you can bounce between, in the event that you need to take refuge.
- Buy a spare laptop computer (preferably one that is ultra-reliable, such as a Panasonic Toughbook), a 12 VDC car adapter, and a set of international power adapters.
- Buy a USB external long range Yagi wireless antenna to use with your laptops. (The standoff distance that these provide will make it harder to pinpoint your location when using a public wi-fi hotspot.)
- Buy a batch of at least 40 inexpensive 2 GB USB memory sticks that you can use to physically mail (or courier) digital content, to keep your locale secret.
- Make sure that your passport is updated.
- Do some research to develop a short list of countries where you would consider relocating. Ideally, a country should have respect for the freedom of speech, minimal taxation, minimal influence from the United States government, and NO rendition (extradition) treaty with the United States.
- Establish an offshore bank account.
- Beyond just offshore residency, if you can afford it, then buy a second passport. (Typically, this is done with a “Citizenship Through Investment” program.)
- Via encrypted e-mail, develop contacts with foreign bloggers, and get their tentative agreement to post your ghost-written articles, if circumstances change.
- Pray hard.
I don’t mean for the foregoing to sound alarmist. Consider me a realist. – JWR
