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

Only Losers End Wars

Dovetailing nicely with the post I published yesterday, the brilliant John Green, in American Thinker this morning, published his own piece regarding how the conflict with the America-hating left will be won or lost solely on patriots’ willingness to give up or stand strong. Titled “They Can’t Win If We Won’t Surrender“, it succinctly lays out how the war in this country is currently being fought, and how vital it is that America-loving patriots remain firm in their resolve–especially in our own heads–to defeat the menace that presently threatens all we hold dear. Like everything else Mr. Green writes, it is required reading for anyone calling himself a patriot, particularly those of the traditional American mindset.

I said precisely the same thing, albeit far less eloquently and with much greater bombast, in “Time to Reclaim the Patriot Mantle“.

I won’t rehash the entire piece because you truly need to read all of it and take it’s wisdom to heart, but here are a few of the more powerful bits that resonated with me (highlights are for the most part mine):

  • The objective of war is not to kill people and break things, but to break the enemy’s will to resist.  That is precisely what the Left has been doing to us — attempting to break our will.
  • War is only ended by the loser, not the winner.  That’s why the pessimist faction of conservatism bothers me the most.  They’re ready to concede, and they’re playing into the Left’s hands.
  • Corporate media functions as the Left’s propaganda ministry to hide the subversiveness of the Left’s efforts and promote their narrative.  Peaceful protests are now insurgencies, while riots are “mostly peaceful.”
  • Propaganda only works as long as it’s credible, and theirs no longer is.
  • The Left is at its weakest position of the past 15 years.
  • The Left doesn’t want us to realize that our strategic position is stronger than theirs.  The vast majority of Americans value our founding principles.  The Left is scared because patriotic Americans are waking up.  They’re starting to realize that they’ve been played, and they’re getting very angry.
  • The pandemic has shown us how important and fragile liberty is.  I’ll never take it for granted again.  I suspect a great number of patriots feel the same way.
  • Now that we’re awake, we have the advantage for one simple reason:  We are Americans and liberty is in our blood.

and finally

  • Our republic is not lost for one simple reason. They can’t win if we won’t surrender.  Thankfully, the majority of Americans are angry and in no mood for surrender.

We’ve ceded enough ground to the bullies, and that’s exactly and all that they are. They are throwing their weight around because we’re not punching back. We’re on the ropes because we’re allowing ourselves to be pushed there without a fight. But as with every bully who ever lived, these are weak and terrified little people who will fold like seven deuce offsuit at the smallest raise of the stakes. It’s time we push a few more chips into the pile.

Continuing with the poker analogy, the fact is we don’t even have to go “all in” just yet. We merely have to make it clear that we’re in for the long haul, and double-dog-dare them to try to hang. Remember in doing so that you’re dealing with the participation-trophy crowd that believes they’ve somehow “won” something and mistakenly walk around feeling entitled to the spoils of the victory. They act like Babe Ruth but they’ve never hit a homer; in fact, most of them never even bothered to swing the bat.

I have. Have you?

It’s not time to gather up the gear and pack it in; this is the time when we raise our fists and voices and declare that the game hasn’t even started yet. They’ll know the game is really underway when they hear us belting out the National Anthem.

Then we pick up the Louisville Sluggers and get to work.

I gotta tell ya–they better tie those cleats on extra fucking tight, because I’m bringing my “A” game. You?

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?
