They have an ad attempting to recruit American veterans to join the Wagner Group hyping the idea that a small number of families decided what countries we have invaded during the War on Terror and Russia alone is fighting evil.  It ends with sort of a threat of American cities getting nuked if Russia does not win.  Great way to get patriotic Americans on your side.

War Factories

by Clayton Cramer in Clayton Cramer. at 16:01, Saturday, 04 February

Great series.  This video about Soviet war factories is really worthwhile.   They discuss the amazing relocation of 1500 factories to the Urals away from German troops.  Even the biggest war factories were built in the U S. in the 1930s, disassembled, shipped to Soviet Union and reassembled by American engineers.


You can also see strong parallels to modern Russian incompetence in Ukraine. 

Nice explanation of how Soviet starvation of its population and U.S. and British aid persuaded Socialists in the West (such as the British Labour Party) to take the command and control model for economic development with horrible results.

From the same article:

Conservative MP Glen Motz said comments by both the prime minister and Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino suggest the two men know little about firearms or the legislation that currently regulates their use.

“If the prime minister and Liberals were actually serious about public safety, they would be focusing on criminals, sentencing with the use of firearms for the commission of offences, or gun smuggling,” he said.

AR57: Fun Times with a Tiny Carbine (aka FSS Hurricane)

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 08:27, Saturday, 04 February

Thanks to MagPul for sponsoring this video! I was happy to use one of their new Daka Grid rifle cases today – it’s a very cool system that will be of great use for me both because of its modular configurability and its excellent security.

The AR-57 is a system developed by Rhineland Arms in the early 2000s which uses the FN P90 magazine (and its 5.7x28mm cartridge) in an AR upper. The magazine mounts on top of the barrel, and it ejects downward through what would normally be the AR magazine well. Any standard AR lower can be used, although the company (AR57; a separate firm spun off for this product) sold complete guns using OEM receivers form Aero Precision.

The uppers were made in three barrel lengths, and I have here an example of a first generation ...

On February 4, 1945, the Yalta Conference opened with Franklin D. Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and Joseph Stalin meeting to plan the final defeat and occupation of Nazi Germany. Roosevelt was reportedly weak and ill at the conference. There, they conspired to carve up Europe by marking new boundaries on a National Geographic map. This set the stage for the Cold War, and the statist globalism of the early 21st Century. — We are in need of some entries for Round 105 of the SurvivalBlog non-fiction writing contest.

It’s not clear whether the Fed should become more dovish or hawkish – and that impacts gold. The flash US PMI Composite Output Index registered 46.6 in January, up from 45.0 in December. It implies that the decline in business activity softened to the slowest in three months. But it was a further fall, as each number below 50 means a decrease …

Quote of the day:

With the right technology enforcing gun control and safety would be an easier task for Law enforcement.

Currently All guns manufactured have a serial number on them, this process takes much longer when trying to identify who owned the gun, who sold the gun, etc. This is where an app for a smartphone could truly make a difference. Of course this app would be available to law enforcement only and not the general public. With this mobile app, Law enforcement would have the ability to tag guns in real time. Such as when a gun is purchased the name of the owner, and the store from where it is sold is put in to the system, as well as the date and time.

With this information, a recognition system could be used for guns. Maybe along with the serial number etched on the gun, NFC (Near Field Communication) chips could be embedded in the metal. Thus Law enforcement could simply wave their device (smartphone) over the gun and would immediately receive data to aid in the case.

Yugoslav M72: The Early Balkan RPK

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 08:27, Friday, 03 February

When the Yugoslav Peoples’ Army began AK development, they produced the M64 infantry rifle and the M65 support weapon. The M65 had a longer and heavier profile barrel and a bipod – and in its very early experimental iterations a quick-change barrel mechanism and a folding carry handle. By the time it entered regular service it was the M72, the carry handle was gone, and the barrel was fixed in place.

The internal parts of the M72 were interchangeable with the standard M70 rifles, and they could also use the same magazines – although a drum was made specifically for the M72 to allow more sustained fire. Note that like the M70, the M72 originally had an automatic hold-open for empty magazines, but this was removed to allow compatibility with standard AK pattern magazines. The original M72 used a distinctively shaped milled receiver like the very first...

Immune erosion

by Midwest Chick in Non-Original Rants at 06:30, Friday, 03 February

Immune erosion is apparently the 'accepted' term for Vaccine Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome.  

Seriously, try to look up VAIDS or Vaccine Immune Deficiency Syndrome and you'll get articles like 'we asked the experts and there's no such thing' or articles trying to conflate VAIDS with HIV or articles that blame immune deficiency on covid, not the shots.

Looking up immune erosion, and there's a wealth of info.  Because the covid mRNA shots program cells to continue to manufacture the covid spike protein, the cells are damaged and the immune system is compromised.

From the New England Journal of Medicine:

Ab2 antibodies also have the potential to bind the same receptor that the original antigen was targeting (Figure 1). Ab2 antibodies binding to the original receptor on normal cells therefore have the potential to mediate profound effects on the cell that could result in pathologic changes, particularly in the long term — long after the original antigen itself has disappeared.

So Biden & his lackeys have decided that allowing a suspected Chinese spy balloon to hover over the United States, to potentially spy on us and our defenses, is safer for America than shooting it down.

As I’ve pointed out before people, in this case it is mostly women, are really weird:

Brittney J Hislope on her Facebook page has released multiple posts, pronouncing her admiration for Bryan Kohberger. She also apparently has sent several letters to him.

There is some sort of strange psychology going on here. This not a rare occurrence.

I have personally known two different women who married prison inmates. They did not know them prior to their incarceration, but were attracted enough to them to overcome the obstacles and marry the...

Opinion here. Now, the defendant was someone who ought to be behind bars, for a long time, and fn. 4 suggests that he will be behind bars for a time on state charges. Given that, I wonder why the federales brought charges, over what was the least of his offenses. Maybe looking for publicity?

The Fifth Circuit notes that, under Bruen, the test is text, history, and tradition, and the analogs the government advanced were either inappropriate (the Militia Act of 1662, which was part of the basis of the 1688 Declaration of Rights) or simply stretching things too far.

Should Tom Brady have (stayed) retired?

by Borepatch in Borepatch at 17:25, Thursday, 02 February

Tom Brady is the greatest football player in history, but did this last disastrous season hurt his reputation?  Or is his career so impressive that it really didn't hurt him?

He originally retired a year ago, and then came back for one more season.  If he had stayed retired then everyone would have thought "Of course he could have played longer; he went out at the top."  Now it's pretty clear that while he is still a great quarterback, he's not what he was a couple years ago.

Candlemas Eve by Robert Herrick, Sung by Kate Rusby

by JDZ in Never Yet Melted at 11:18, Thursday, 02 February


DOWN with rosemary and bayes,
Down with the mistleto,
Instead of holly, now up-raise
The greener box, for show.

The holly hitherto did sway;
Let box now domineere,
Until the dancing Easter-day,
Or Easter’s eve appeare.

Then youthful box, which now hath grace
Your houses to renew,
Grown old, surrender must his place
Unto the crisped yew.

When yew is out, then birch comes in,
And many flowers beside,
Both of a fresh and fragrant kinne
To honor Whitsontide.

Green rushes then, and sweetest bents,
With color oken boughs,
Come in for comely ornaments,
To re-adorn the house.
Thus times do shift; each thing his turn does hold;
New things succeed as former things grow o

From Robert Chambers, The Book of Days, 1869:

From a very early, indeed unknown date in the Christian history, the 2nd of February has been held as the festival of the Purification of the Virgin, and it is still a holiday of the Church of England. From the coincidence of the time with that of the Februation or purification of the people in pagan Rome, some consider this as a Christian festival engrafted upon a heathen one, in order to take advantage of the established habits of the people; but the idea is at least o...

Journalists believe objectivity prevents them from accurate reporting, as it bars them from channeling their background and beliefs, the survey found.

Mary Lou Masters
January 31, 2023
Major News Outlets Say They’re Ditching Objectivity In The Name Of ‘Diversity’

Their “own truth” is more valid that “the truth” or even there is no absolute truth. If they believe something, it is just as valid as any other “truth”.

This reminds me of something daughter Jaime observed and found life changing. It is closely related to, if not the same as, Peterson Syndrome where the person does not have a process to determine truth from falsity. Some people are totally oblivious to a distinction between the truth and beliefs. They lack the mental processes to understand...

From Claude Werner:

Since it’s a recent theme in the training community, let me reinforce the principle that going outside your home to confront thieves and other criminals is a bad idea. Stay inside and let them come to you. Conduct a Defense not a Movement to Contact. A military axiom is that the defense has at least a 3 to 1 advantage over the Offense.
As has been said several times here at VFTP, heed the advice of the great warrior poet, Chef, from Apocalypse Now: "Never get out of the boat."

Just from talking to detectives who get to respond to a reasonable number of these incidents, it became apparent that even inside the house, the won-loss ratio for people who posted up and waited versus the ones who found themselves in a surprise meeting engagement is much higher.

Groundhog Day

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 09:39, Thursday, 02 February

 This morning, as is tradition, Puxatawney Phil emerged from his burrow on Gobblers Kob to predict the weather.  He saw his shadow, and we're in for another six weeks of winter.

He wouldn't have seen his shadow in my front yard.  Three days of miserable, misting, cold weather have everyone in a grand funk.  Belle  and I have to get out today, to attend a military ceremony.  Grandson Quinton's unit is taking the first step on a deployment.  They are leaving Camp Beauregard to meet the main body at Jackson Barracks in New Orleans, thence to Fort Hood for pre-deployment training. Eventually, heading to Kuwait.

I am more concerned about him being at Fort Hood during February than I am about him going to Kuwait.  Fort Hood can be miserable this time of year.  Still, he is off on a grand adventure and I wish I were going with them.

Schadenfreude

by Clayton Cramer in Clayton Cramer. at 10:53, Thursday, 02 February

2/1/23 San Francisco Chronicle:

It’s not generally prudent to criticize the umpire before the start of a ballgame, or the judge who’s expected to consider the constitutionality of the new law you’re proposing. But Gov. Gavin Newsom didn’t mince words Wednesday in referring to U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez of San Diego, who is likely to have the first look at gun groups’ challenge to a bill that would restrict the carrying of concealed firearms in public.

He is also whining that he expects Beneitz to strike California's assault weapon and regular size magazine law, and the article points out that the Supreme Court is on the same side.

I have been helping with this and my mass murder expert declaration has not even been filed with the court.  This will blow a Imperial Cruiser sized hole in their we need bans on these icky guns to prevent mass murders.

The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

by James Wesley Rawles in SurvivalBlog.com at 02:01, Thursday, 02 February

“Christian Americans should see themselves as under a sort of occupation. Forces largely from outside your communities suppress that natural drive, confirmed by grace, for public religion. The ruling class is hostile to your Christian town, to your Christian people and to your Christian heritage. The occupation universalizes their ideology, forcing your Christianity to exist only in the walls of churches, denying any civil and social ordering to God and to Christ’s kingdom. The top-down and foreign imposition of secularism is evident in Supreme Court decisions, though these are only the tip of the iceberg and most visible to us.” …

This is what they think of you

by Joe in The View From North Central Idaho at 23:14, Wednesday, 01 February

This was a voicemail left by a reporter who worked for the New York Times:

“Again, I am from The New York Times, and I’m letting everyone in The New York Times know what kind of fucking assholes you are. Congrats on being a laughing stock,” Marquis said, calling the group “f*cking ghouls” and saying she hoped “there is a God in heaven, so he who judges you when you die.”

I’m more than a little surprised the NYT fired her for this. But a cursor investigation indicates they actually did do that. She left jalopnik.com in July of 2021 to work for the NYT, then appears to have got her job back after the Times said good-bye.

I doubt that she has changed her beliefs even if she probably will be a little less candid about them. Sort of like the racist who knows they will get in trouble of they say the ‘n’ word out loud so they whisper it to themselves when they are in public.

Prejudice is such an ugly thing.

Appeals court upholds restraining order on Illinois gun ban

An Illinois appellate court on Tuesday upheld a temporary restraining order on enforcement of the state’s three-week-old law banning semiautomatic weapons, enacted largely in response to the mass shooting at an Independence Day parade in the Chicago suburb of Highland Park.

A three-judge panel for the 5th District Appellate Court affirmed the restraining order issued Jan. 20 by a circuit judge in Effingham County.

Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul, a Democrat, plans to appeal the ruling to the state Supreme Court.

The Protect Illinois Communities Act prohibits the manufacture or possession of semiautomatic handguns and rifles. Those who owned them before the Jan. 10 effective date of the law must register them wi...
