Your country is calling. It's time to get involved!

Every American Patriot as a role to play in the saving of our great nation. If you love this country and hate watching it slip away, you must get involved now.

In the fight for America, there can be no bystanders.

We believe this wholeheartedly, which is why we created the Civilian Defense Force with everyone in mind. 25 and physically fit? Fantastic! 75 and confined to a wheelchair? There’s plenty for you to do, too. Military veteran? High school student? Housewife? You have something of value to contribute.

What if you don’t have a lot of time, or your job makes identifying with “Patriot” groups problematic? There’s still a way you can help us to save the nation! A true American Patriot will always find a way to do something to help us achieve our mission, even if it doesn’t mean attending meetings or standing the wall when the burning and looting starts in your area.

But what kind of something?

There are three primary avenues by which Patriots can support our cause. Two of these are active-participation opportunities, with their own side-streets and areas of specialization. These are the “lifeblood” of the organization. The third avenue, however, is just as important as the first two; that’s the financial support that we desperately need to keep the whole operation afloat. We’ll start with that.

Freedom-fighting ain’t free.


The Civilian Defense Force is comprised of Patriots who’ve made it their mission to help keep American citizens safe and free. But freedom-fighting comes with costs, and these costs include the type you pay with dollars. Our expenses include everything from the cost of web hosting to the price of additional security. We operate on a shoestring, and we always will–we refuse to be beholden to anyone because of money (or we’d be no better than our sellout politicians)–but the reality is that operating an organization like this requires real cash. If you can find no other way to help, your cash donation will go a long way toward ensuring that our efforts succeed.

The CDF does not require payment from anyone. We don’t charge membership dues and we don’t ask units to pay any kind of registration fee. We demand patriotism and good character–that’s it. We also don’t pay salaries or other compensation to anyone. Everything that everyone does in the CDF is strictly voluntary. Because we ask our members to freely give so much of their time and talents , we don’t feel right asking them to pay for the privilege.

Maybe you can’t assist us with boots on the ground. Could you perhaps help with dollars in the wallet?

Sustainer Track participants can donate in two ways; either with a one-time contribution, or with a monthly “sustaining” donation arrangement.

Please visit our Donation page for more details. We accept donations by credit card via PayPal (you don’t need a PayPal account) and soon, we’ll accept cryptocurrencies as well.

Donate through PayPal

It’s fast, easy, and safe…and you can use a credit or debit card even if you don’t have a PayPal account.

Defense is our strength.


This is the group within the Civilian Defense Force that trains for and carries out defensive activities, rescue missions, and community assistance in times of emergency. These are our true “citizen soldiers”. They fill sandbags during a flood, pound the bushes during search-and-rescue operations, and stand guard with rifles when the looters arrive. These are the folks on the street for the local neighborhood watch, and will be the folks in the trenches if (Heaven forbid) shooting ever starts. This is our front-line, “core” group. They receive heavy training in everything from combat tactics to first aid, weapons safety to shelter-building. They learn tactical planning, equipment maintenance, physical fitness, and leadership skills (among many, many other things).

To be a part of this track, you should be strong of mind, body, and character. You should be able to equip yourself with the basic tools (including firearms, communications equipment, and other tactical gear). And of course you must be willing to put yourself in harms way in defense of your community and your neighbors.

Warrior Track participants can earn recognition as members of the Order of the Sword, known as Paladins. Paladins can further earn accolades within other, more specialized Sword orders.

Warrior Track participants can qualify for special “Paladin” recognition within “The Order of the Sword”.

We can’t all be fighters.


Not all members of the Civilian Defense Force are ideally suited physical or “combat” positions. Their contributions are nevertheless equally important. Support Track members fill roles that keep the organization and our citizen soldiers functional.

These roles can be in the clerical, administrative, legal, political, or financial fields. They could be public relations or information technology positions. Or they could be more traditional roles like cook, gardener, seamstress, armorer, or gunsmith. There are people who can shoot bumble-bees out of the air, but can’t boil water. Someone has to prepare meals for them, or mend their clothes. Someone else has to transport them to their duty areas, or repair their vehicles so they can transport themselves. There are many jobs that must be done to help us be successful, and none are too small or unimportant.

Support Track participants can earn recognition as members of the Order of the Shield, known as Guardians. Guardians can further earn accolades within other, more specialized Shield orders.

We want you to commit to the cause of America.

Money isn't our goal; locating and activating patriotic Americans is.


Hello patriot. My name is Jeff Cole, and a year or so back I founded the Civilian Defense Force. I'd like to quickly tell you a little bit about why we exist and why, I think, you're here. Those two "whys" are one and the same.

America is in trouble. Anyone who has lived in this country for more than a few years knows this. Our nation--and the world, because if America falls the world tumbles along with it--is under attack from enemies without and within. These evil bastards are Hell-bent on tearing down the legacy of freedom and responsibility this nation was founded upon and has represented for two and a half centuries. They're well organized, well financed, ruthless, and relentless...and they're inside the gates. All of the protections we've traditionally depended on to hold off their manipulations are at perilous risk right now, because too many good people have stood by silently while the enemies of America took control of the machinery.

The Civilian Defense Force was created to help stand in the way of all that, and to give awakening American patriots a place to step up and finally do something. That's why you're here, isn't it?

While the goals are broad (because they have to be), our mission is simple, direct, and vital. The Civilian Defense Force exists to gather American patriots together within their own communities; train them to defend themselves and those communities; and by extension, give them the strength and knowledge to reclaim the systems that have been usurped to indoctrinate our children, propagandize our media, and pervert our way of life.

The simple fact is that we're Americans. We bend the knee for NO ONE. The whole world knows this, so our enemies set about to infiltrate the country and destroy our heritage and will to be free. Through the corrupt media/entertainment complex, complicit "news" operations, compromised educational systems, and a far-too-complacent public, they weaseled their way in like parasites and now they infect the minds and bodies of too many of our countrymen. This makes it seem as if fighting them is fighting ourselves. We bend for no one out there, but we'll roll right over when it's our own who are doing the damage. They counted on this very phenomenon, which is why they implemented these programs in the first place. In the summer of 2020, they set their mindless minions loose upon a few test cities, and we watched helplessly as they burned those cities to the ground. This was just the beginning.

They've followed this with a puffed-up "pandemic" designed to allow them to pervert our election process and keep us under control, restricting everything from our movement to how or if we work and demanding, with little scientific backing and utterly ignoring the many viable alternatives, that we turn to a "vaccine" that will keep us bound to them forever. They've begun the process of punishing those who push back against them, and will continue that process right down to the classroom where your children are sitting right now.

Your town will soon be facing this relentless assault, if it isn't already. And if you think the black-clad minions of evil won't eventually show up with their molotov cocktails, bricks, and bike locks...think again. This is all coming to you sooner or later, especially if you and your neighbors offer any resistance to the established plan.

But we're Americans. We bend the knee for NO ONE. And as liberty-loving, patriotic Americans awaken from our induced complacency, we are indeed beginning to resist. This means they're going to have to bring the fight directly to our doorsteps.

And they will.

That's why the Civilian Defense Force exists. Our safeguards are being stripped away as we speak. Police are being defunded or targeted for violence; prosecutors are being replaced with anti-Americans who willfully ignore laws or apply "justice" unevenly; schools are being subjected to asinine mandates, held hostage by self-serving anti-American teacher's unions, and forced to indoctrinate our children with a curriculum straight from Hell itself; and even our military, once vaunted and still honored as the pinnacle of American might and right, has been gutted of any America-first attitude, it's leaders proudly wearing their latest medal--a "Joe Biden" campaign button.

Facing such an onslaught, it's hard to see how anyone can stand against it. But we--you and I--are American patriots. We bend the knee for NO ONE and personally, I sure as Hell don't intend to start now. Do you?

Here's the good news...there are lots and lots and LOTS of us, and we're all getting awake. And boy, are we PISSED! You know it--you talk with your neighbors every day. You hear and feel their anger. You know this dam is about to burst.

The time has come for that anger to be collected and directed.

That's what we exist for. Our goal is to gather the growing patriot crowd and whip them into "fighting" shape. That is as much metaphorical as it is literal; we will be ready to stand in the gap when the minions come to spread their lawlessness and mayhem, but in the interim we're also intent on helping our fellow citizens survive the hard times to come. We do this by organizing our resistance while creating community-based paths to self-sufficiency. When no one else is, we will be there for our communities as they desperately seek someone strong to turn to. In the process we will slowly but pointedly make every effort to retake control of the mechanisms of government, from the ground up. We'll start with our school boards, town councils, and county commissions. We'll take over the political parties, if necessary, by captaining precincts. We'll remind the enemies of America that ours is not a top-down dictatorial affair, but rather a nation of, by, and for the people.

To do all of this, we need your help. I don't want your money--you already have enough of that soaked out of you. What I want is your commitment to your community and your country. I want your effort. I want the patriot blood that flows through you, to intermingle it with mine and that of millions of other America-loving folks just like us who have seen enough, heard enough, had enough.

That's what we're here for.

That's what you're here for, am I right?

So let's get to it, shall we?
