Purpose: Our purpose is to serve the Resistance/Patriot Movement as a weekly gazette providing news and commentary favorable to our cause in a format accessible to the general public.
The news from e-mail listings is shown in preformatted text. This news will be attributed
to its authors/editors and is entirely the opinion of that particular author/editor.
One of the reasons for this is to cut down on the spamming and foolishness inherent in raw e-mail in order to provide a forum for discussion of Resistance Movement issues.
Commentary is in regular format and is solely the opinions of the Editor and Staff of Modern Militiaman Internet Gazette.
Editor Martin Lindstedt
Usually I would place such a commentary at the back of
this issue, letting people make up their own minds as what
to make of the past few weeks in the aftermath of the
Republic of Texas outcome and the arrest of some open
militiamen for explosives and gun violations. However, the
back is presently allotted to working on some loose ends
from Modern Militiaman #5. Besides, I want people reading
this issue to reflect on the past week or so in light of
what I have to say in this column.
The very first thing we must do is to learn from the mistakes caused by our weaknesses in how we handled the situation and to identify the root causes which made those mistakes inevitable. Having learned from those mistakes, we must then take measures to prevent from making those mistakes all over again. As a smaller, more flexible cadre of the New Elite, we have an advantage over our enemy, the federal Leviathan, but only if we choose to learn from our mistakes. In war it is the side which makes the last fatal mistake which loses.
And what was the inevitable root cause of the mistakes made the past few weeks? I attribute it to the open militia organizations and their militia generals. The penalties for the inherent problems caused by such faulty militia ‘organization’ were wholly visited upon such offenders against good sense. Practitioners of "leaderless resistance" were wholly exempt from such penalties -- unaffected by foolishness, safe from the wrath of FedGoons who are unaware of their existence.
Consider the foundation of the open militia organization over three years ago. "No More Wacos!" was the battleyawp behind their professed formation. Uneasily ignored was the pertinent question, "But what if there are more Wacos? What then?" The past week or so of mini-Wacos leading in the murder of one man who would not bow down to the state-god has resulted in the surface of the water alongside the 9/10th of the iceberg churned up to a high froth with recriminations of cowardice and lawlessness. "What then?" came to pass. It split the open militia movement apart, revealing deep divisions between loveless egotists who never much cared for one another in any case.
The excuse seized upon by both sides was to find fault with other open militia organizations under attack. The leadership of the main Republic of Texas faction condemned the McLaren faction as lawless kidnappers who were now on their own as mere criminals subject to arrest by de facto Texas State officials. Most of the militia generals and their out-of-state open public militia organizations hastened to sign 'declarations' concerning how since the ROT was wanting to secede from the gubbnmint, that they were no longer under the paper protection of the Constitution, and hence on their own. Some other militant-keyboard militia generals in turn used that as an excuse to call the rival militia generals with a few troops "cowards" and in turn wipe their hands of the entire situation. They didn’t go to Texas either.
The worm turned when after the McLaren faction was rounded up or scattered, then murdered, the cowardly Leviathan pressed federal charges against the McLaren faction and the de facto Texas regime proceeded to crack the other half of the ROT nut. Using what the Texas regime’s kkkourts called a writ of attachment, (A bill of attainder whose effective purpose is to treat rebellious slaves as pieces of property to be stored with their papers and effects indefinitely under color of pretend legality.) some of the ROT leadership was detained so that the Texas regime could draw up an extensive enemies list from ROT papers. This problem would have been negated if the ROT people had organized as a cellular structure, not a hierarchical political open organization.
In the meantime, a few more militia generals got rounded up with their entire organizations and their goodies last week. They were under the impression that big talk and heavy weaponry and explosives are compatible. The police forces disabused them of that notion -- and now these fools are in jail. Survival of the fittest took place in this case. If you are going to be a talking militia general, then perhaps you should not be associated with weapons you have no idea of how to use. If you are going to be a action militia corporal, then you don’t want the gubbnmint to catch you and your action cell. By all means, let the gubbnmintgungoons arrest the militia general who is not guilty of anything and who would probably piss in his pants at the thought of a few dead pigs wallowing in a pool of their own blood for once. That’s what militia generals are for -- to deflect the heat. To spend some time in jail for stuff they didn’t do while you run wild. To whine about gubbnmint injustice while you rectify those injustices on a case-by-case basis.
THE EVENTS OF THE PAST TWO WEEKS affected only the open militia organizations and their idiotic leadership. A cowardly, incompetent government learned all the wrong lessons and now believes that escalating a situation to a violent conclusion as soon as possible is the best way to deal with increasing dissent brought out into the open by its degenerative social and financial policies. The vast mass of Bourbon Amerika learned nothing, but did get their massive appetite for blood and violence briefly whetted. The modern militiaman relearned that which he already knew:
So watch and wait in silence --
Do not blink and do not run --
But plan your countermeasures as
The wronged have always done.
From "Campus Unrest, 1991" by Arch O’Lochus
The modern militiaman understands where the government and society is headed -- he approves of such a just development. He is not out to save modern society from itself -- he is out to save himself and his own from modern society. He no longer runs for political office; chances are he is no longer registered to vote, and if registered, only votes against the latest tax increase. His moral sense is developed highly enough so that he will not engage in the gamble of "Pick the Least Degenerate Politico" to rule over himself or others. He has banished the television set from his house and only reads the newspaper in order to figure out what the System wants him to believe. He doesn’t store up automatic weaponry and the massive amounts of ammunition necessary to feed such poodle-shooters. He has a 30/06 or .308 caliber semi-automatic or bolt-action rifle he says is for deer hunting, a .22 rifle, a 12 gauge shotgun, maybe a .22 or .38 caliber revolver. He has adequate ammunition and spare parts for these three or four weapons. He probably knows how to reload ammunition for these weapons. The wife and children know how to shoot the family weapons. He certainly doesn’t store up explosives in his house. He probably has access to information so if he needs improvised weaponry, he will be able to make it out of common household goods or gasoline.
Such a modern militiaman by definition does not appear on any government enemies’ list. He is a solid citizen. He might have briefly shown up, once, at a militia meeting asking for information. Hopefully he was told to go home and form his own cell, for the good of himself and his family, and to not ever show up at another militia meeting ever again. Even is such good advice wasn’t given by the local militia general, he was smart enough to figure it out for himself and is on nobody’s mailing list.
By such a militia soldiery shall the current regime receive its coup de grace after its rondevouix with destiny. Upon such solid foundations shall a new civilization, purged of parasites and predators, arise from the wreckage of the old.
THE EVENTS OF THE PAST TWO WEEKS? Mere foolishness practiced by fools acting like fools in a fool’s world. Irrelevant to the modern militiaman.

Date: Sat, 10 May 1997 22:38:23 -0400 (EDT) To: email@example.com Subject: piml] Man Killed After Standoff Recalled The Associated Press DALLAS (AP) - The Republic of Texas sympathizer killed after the group's standoff ended was willing to die for leader Richard McLaren but was duped into believing the group would never surrender, the dead man's older brother said. "It must have been the nightmare of his life when McLaren told him that he would give up,'' said Mike Matson' older brother, Ralph Matson. "He left my brother hanging," Matson said. "My brother said, `I will never again spend a minute in jail. I will fight to the death with anyone who tries to arrest me.'" Mike Matson, 48, died Monday in a shootout with authorities. He had fled the faction's encampment outside Fort Davis after McLaren, the self-styled Republic ambassador, agreed to go into state custody Saturday. Ralph Matson, 54, said his brother was not a member of the Republic of Texas but sympathized with the group and was committed to protecting McLaren on the condition that he not surrender. "He duped my brother into thinking he was a freedom fighter," Matson said Thursday in a telephone interview from Alpine, near the site of the standoff. Matson, a resident of Colorado Springs, Colo., said his brother's remains would be cremated and his ashes taken to Chicago, where they have five sisters. Mike Matson's ex-wife recalled him as a man obsessed with the military who joined up with the group only because he needed a cause. Matson was medically discharged from the Marines just before he would have gone to Vietnam, Carolyn Matson told The Associated Press in Friday. "That was part of his frustration, I think. He wanted to be a part of that," she said. The Matsons were married in the San Francisco area in 1991. Their marriage lasted seven months. Richard Frank Keyes III, 21, who fled the group's encampment with Matson, remains a fugitive. Keyes faces several state charges stemming from the April 27 hostage-taking that sparked the standoff between McLaren's group and some 300 law enforcement officers. McLaren and his wife, Evelyn, are jailed along with four of his followers. McLaren faces state charges and has been indicted along with his wife on federal charges accusing them of issuing $1.8 billion in phony financial documents. AP-NY-05-10-97 0115EDT.
From: SafanNews@aol.com Date: Sat, 10 May 1997 17:41:30 -0400 (EDT) To: SafanNews@aol.com Subject: SAFAN NO. 442 The Murder of Mike Matson STOP ALL FEDERAL ABUSES NOW!!! S.A.F.A.N. Internet Newsletter, NO. 442, May 10, 1997 THE MURDER OF MIKE MATSON by Norman Olson (firstname.lastname@example.org) Bob Cronkhite (the guitarist who sang and played Patriot Down) talked to Ralph Matson about Mike's murder. Ralph said that Mike's arm was blown off by what appeared to be a highpowered blast. Mike body also had a small caliber wound directly in the heart. If you'll remember, the early claim was that Mike had fired on a chopper and that he had killed two dogs. Considering the wounds, I have to conclude that he was hit by a large bore rifle, perhaps even a .50 cal from the chopper or a shotgun from very close range. The second is improbable. What I think happened is that Mike was cornered by the dogs and killed them. Then, with a chopper hovering nearby, he pointed his weapon at the chopper and may have even shot, (Mike was a marine marksman and could have hit the chopper if he had wanted to). By that time, Corrections enforcers on the ground had radioed that the dogs were dead and with that the chopper returned fire and severely wounded Matson. Matson lay bleeding, his arm torn off, unable to steady his rifle and probably near unconsciousness from loss of blood (remember that he had been on the run for hours AFTER being on alert for six days...he was at the end of his physical strength)... Now the dog handler approached and deliberately dispatches Mike Matson with a final round to the heart. We still don't know about young Richard Keyes. Perhaps his body lies in the Davis Mountains. My thought is that the search was called off because the enforcers blasted him to shreds and buried the body somewhere, not wanting his next-of-kin to know the brutal nature of his death. Why did they call the search off so quickly when it was Keyes and not Matson who had charges against him? You bet it stinks! As far as Paul Mitchell trying to work something through the courts, I personally don't think the courts are going to buy it. With recent activity in California, my thinking is that the Domestic Terrorism Act together with RICO and other Federal laws have kicked into action. Although restraining the state MAY be likely, it wouldn't surprise me if the FEDS move in with heavy firepower and force. I certainly appreciate Paul Mitchell's offer of legal help, but I tend to be more realistic with respect to military action and see armed confrontation and mortal combat coming very soon. What we have NOT seen are several men with the character and backbone of Mike Matson who WILL NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, cave in. I fear that the course is set. The militia has grown virtually unimpeded over the last three years. Groups that sprang up are heavily armed. It is not surprising then, that arrests will uncover caches of weapons, explosives, night-vision gear, gas masks, etc. After all, the American arms and equipment merchants have made a lucrative business of supply frightened people. But no matter how many "automatic" weapons they confiscate, they only represent the tip of the iceberg of what is out there... All of this presents a scenario where the flashpoint will be found. We still have not had the Lexington/Concord event that will kick the frustration up to a level of retaliation thus plunging us over the edge and beyond the point of no return. The "critical mass" is very unstable and the meltdown soon may occur. I urge all patriot and militia people to secure their caches and remain vigilant. We have perilous road ahead, but a road which we MUST travel. Kind Regards, Norm Olson \\\\|//// ( o o ) --oO0o------U------oO0o--- "Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God."

Since than there was a Siege men and women have been arrested, one man has been killed and another man will be killed. Before that in Texas you had 100 plus men, women and children killed and nothing has been done. I have seen better results at a high school football game when neither team had the foggiest idea of what was going on. I have watched a so called cluster fuck with better results than anything in Texas. I have informed my commander that the women in Texas have larger testicles than any man that walks on the grounds of Texas. Also that the eastern half of this country will no longer support any breathing coward in the so called Texas or Republic. The people in Texas can not have the responsibility nor the privilege of being neither a Republic or a State.

The agents of the STATE OF TEXAS then raised the flag of the STATE OF TEXAS in place of the flag of the Republic of Texas. We saw a similar act just four years ago in which the flag that flew over the Branch Davidian home/church was taken down by the ATF and FBI and replaced with their own. Today the flag pole at McLaren's home lays bent completely over to the ground. Those worriers that have fought in battle know the significance of taking down the "enemy's" banner and replacing it with that of the "conquer." It is a symbol of conquest and defeat. Is this the message the STATE is sending to the Republic? Part of the agreement of the "cease-fire" was that the flag would continue to fly. Cox, spokesman for the STATE, stated that the flag would be left alone and further assured everyone that it was on private property and would remain untouched. ---------------------------------- > From: firstname.lastname@example.org > To: Mzs > Subject: Re: The Flag of the ROT: Failure to Fight = LOSS o > Date: Thursday, May 08, 1997 8:17 AM > > > (mesage cc'd to your cc list) > On 7 May 97 at 21:24, Heaven's Messenger 777 wrote: > > > > Well, I hope that you people all now realize that the > > De Facto Gov't Agents and Agencies are after your > > butts and that they LIE and DON'T KEEP THEIR WORD > > when given, even in WRITING. > > Everybody already knows that.

This 'law enforcement' group imprisoned Secretary Kesterson on orders from a judge in Travis county, Texas, called a 'writ of attachment' (an unconstitutional bill of attainder). He is apparently charged with contempt of court, even though a proper plea at bar had been entered in his defense, and even though he had timely responded to the judge's demands in a lengthy letter, both of record. Attorney General for the de facto STATE OF TEXAS Dan Morales asked and Judge Hart apparently signed an order demanding that "regardless of the outcome of [such] show cause hearing, Kesterson should remain in jail, without bond...until such time as he submits himself to deposition and produces the documents which he has previously twice refused to produce." Amoung those documents are lists of citizens of the Republic of Texas, private email correspoondence, and names of every contact Secretary Kestereson has had, personal or otherwise. This order stands in clear violation of the natural right to privacy, a right which has been many times upheld by superior courts in the de facts system. It appears that Hart and Morales have conspired to subject a sworn officer of the Republic of Texas, who will not comply with the unlawful demands of these foreign agents, to a life sentence. Secretary Kesterson has been neither indicted nor convicted of any crime. He is being held at an unknown location and has been denied a hearing to date. President Archie Huel Lowe unequivocally condemned actions taken against Secretary Kesterson and other leaders and citzens of the Republic of Texas by foreign agents operating unlawfully on the soil of Texas, in clear and direct violation of the de facto STATE OF TEXAS constitution at Article I, Sections 2, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, 16, and 19. He expressed grave concern for the conquences of these actions against the citizens of a neutural, non-aggressive nation, and demanded that every citizen abducted in recent weeks by foreign agencies be immediately turned over to the proper venue and jurisdiction under the laws and constitution of the Republic of Texas. He stated today that "The people are greatly incensed and it is impossible to perdict their response to this outrage. Secretary Kesterson has requested that he be granted the time and oppertunity to address the unlawful actions of the STATE OF TEXAS in their own court. The General Council has issued a strong protest to the UNITED STATES and its corporate subdivision concerning the dangers inherent in creating an interenational incident of the magnitude." Secretary of Defense Roger Erickson, in cooperation with other factions in Texas and support groups in the united States, has placed the Republic of Texas Defense Forces on Orange Three alert status. Yesterday his office issued a plea for supplies and resources to provide for the influx of concerned patriots, as well as assistance from individuals with patherfinder, recon, and medical experance. Items listed as most needed are food, water, shelter, generators, gas, communications equipment, transportation, and financial support. ------------------------------ Here is a message from Kesterson: >Greetings!

Others Sought in Explosion Case Police probe militia ties to cache found in Yuba City Bill Wallace, Chronicle Staff Writer Yuba City Investigators are looking for more suspects with links to militia organizations in connection with a cache of explosives found in a trailer here last week that already has led to six arrests. "The evidence indicates that there are other possible violators located outside the jurisdiction of the court," said Yuba County Sheriff's Lieutenant Steven Durfor in an affidavit requesting a high bail for two men in custody. Three of those arrested have petty criminal records, according to court records in Yuba and Sutter counties. All pleaded not guilty last week and remain in custody with bails ranging from $70,000 to $150,000. William Goehler, 34, the man who touched off the investigation when a homemade bomb exploded outside his house in Olivehurst just south of Marysville on April 27, has been arrested at least six times since 1991 on charges ranging from drunk driving to failing to register as a sex offender. Goehler, a convicted rapist, rode his motorcycle to Jordan, Mont., last year to demonstrate his support for extremists from the "Freemen Movement" during the group's three-month stand-off with FBI agents. Vernon Weckner, 66, who owns the house where detectives found a quarter ton of gelatin dynamite, was arrested for traffic violations twice last year and appealed his convictions on both charges, claiming the court had no authority "to prosecute a Freeman under a Flag of military jurisdiction or Marshal Law." Both appeals were rejected. Jason Fox, 20, has been arrested several times on drug charges, most recently in February when he was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine. Fox was arraigned in that case Monday and pleaded not guilty. The other three men arrested, Kevin A. Quinn, 37, Robert Scott Deaver, 33, and Edward Whitlow III, 20, have apparently had no previous run-ins with the law. Authorities say that Quinn formerly worked for a Montana mining company that may have been the source for the explosives and that he was believed to have been at Goehler's house when the bomb exploded last month. Agents from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms are attempting to identify the composition of residue from that explosion and are also tracing the explosives seized last week. Law enforcement sources say they believe that Goehler, Weckner and Quinn were members of the Militia Movement while the other three suspects were not directly involved. "They are involved in the sense that they ended up in possession of the explosives," said Yuba City Undersheriff Gary Finch. "What they were going to use them for, we don't yet know.'' Finch confirmed that investigators, including sheriff's detectives from two counties and the ATF, are trying to identify other possible suspects. He added that it is not clear whether authorities had seized all the suspects' explosives. "There could be a tube (of explosives) or two out there," he said. "It's hard to tell. I'm not going to say we're sure we got it all." ----------------------------------- Mini-militia hit by charges By Peter G. Chronis Denver Post Staff Writer May 7 - Three alleged militia members from Aurora, in whose rented home authorities reportedly found a stash of illegal machine guns and explosives, were indicted Tuesday on eight federal felony counts each. The indictments came about four hours before their preliminary hearings were to be held. A federal grand jury returned the indictments against Ronald David Cole, 27; Kevin I. Terry, 24; and Wallace Stanley Kennett, 33, all of 2439 S. Kittredge Way, at 9:24 a.m. The three then made a brief appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Richard Borchers at 1:30 p.m., during which Terry's attorney denounced the government's handling of the case. "I can tell you these boys are not terrorists," Terry's attorney, W. Lee Hill of Jamestown, said after the hearing. "They're idealists, and if the U.S. government were at least half as interested in justice as they are, they should be released soon.'' When the defendants appeared before Borchers, he said that because of the indictment, they are no longer entitled to a preliminary hearing. The question of their detention remains unresolved. Hill and Dave Conner of the federal public defender's office, who represents Cole, also complained about conditions under which the three were being held at the Federal Correctional Institution in Jefferson County. Conner said the three were being "held in the hole at FCI Englewood" and it was "unclear why they they were originally placed in the hole." Hill complained to Borchers that he had been denied "ready legal access" to his client, including phone calls. "The thing that alarms me most of all," said Hill, "is that confidential attorney-client communications in sealed envelopes - three envelopes - were taken out of view for over 45 minutes and returned open." Borchers gave the defense until Thursday to file a motion on the complaints. Additionally, Hill said, the three men couldn't shave to look presentable for their court appearance. Kennett does not have an attorney. Maureen Cruz, spokeswoman for the correctional institution, said that the U.S. attorney's office would respond to the allegations for the prison. "However," she noted, "since they've been housed at FCI, they've had media visits, legal visits, and have had access to the phone." They were put in "special housing," which doesn't include "unlimited access to the phone," Cruz said. "It's not unusual in a case where you have limited information on an individual coming in with serious charges against them, for security reasons, to go ahead and place them in the special housing unit," Cruz said. Hill later reported that the men's conditions of incarceration had been downgraded to a "more comfortable" level. The men, allegedly the only three members of the grandly named Colorado First Light Infantry militia, have been in custody since being arrested Thursday, the same day a federal search warrant was executed on their home. The government is asking the defendants be denied bail. The three asked for and received a continuance of their detention hearings until Monday. Hill said he has a "very well-qualified team coming together" for all three defendants. "The scenario is each young man will have his own lawyer, but we'll be working cooperatively." Cole, who became a Branch Davidian and wrote a book entitled "Sinister Twilight" about the government's siege of the Branch Davidian compound at Waco, Texas, is an outspoken critic of the government. He also has handed out pamphlets outside the U.S. Courthouse Downtown where Timothy McVeigh is on trial in the Oklahoma City bombing, which the government alleges was revenge for the Waco deaths. The indictment charged each of the three defendants with one count of conspiracy, five counts of illegally possessing machine guns, and two counts of illegally possessing destructive devices. If convicted, the conspiracy counts carry a possible prison term of five years and fine of $250,000. On Nov. 1, the three rented the home on South Kittredge Way in the names of Cole, Terry, and Mark Hollingsworth, which the document said was an alias Kennett used. They stored machine guns, destructive devices, and large quantities of ammunition at the home, in addition to rigging a grenade booby trap to the front door, the narrative said. Among the weapons enumerated in the machine-gun counts were a 9mm Heckler & Koch HK 94 assault-type rifle; a .308caliber Heckler & Koch Model HK 91 assault-type rifle; a .223-caliber Olympic Arms Model PCF assault-type rifle; a 9mm Action Arms Uzi machine pistol, and a 5.56mm (.223-caliber) Norinco Model MAK90 assault-type rifle.

From: E Pluribus Unum (email@example.com) Date: Thu, 08 May 1997 20:01:29 -0400 Subject: My Resignation There comes a time when people must make personal decisions in their life. After long reflection, I have decided to make this choice in my own best interest. Recent situations in Texas, Colorado, California, and other places now forces the Militia Movement to look upon itself for a sense of direction. Regrettably, I will no longer be part of that movement. My 3 1/2 year "Tour of Duty" with the militia is over. It's easy to say I'm leaving the Militia movement, but I feel the Militia has left me. The militia that I helped create has lost it's identity. True, the press can be blamed for most of the public relations problems, but some can be laid at our own doorsteps. Today, any project, even having the best intentions, is tarnished when the word "Militia" is attached. If the Militia were to save children from drowning in a river, they would be blamed for throwing the children in the river in the first place. Like it or not, it's reality. Militia leaders will have to face these issues, or "stand down " all together. For those who will celebrate this resignation, the Militia is "their" problem now. And "they" may be the militia's greatest problem. But this is no time for character assassination. I will no longer speak on behalf of the Militia. I will no longer accept calls from the press , law enforcement, or anyone else concerning the Militia movement. Any issues between the Militia and any other party is no longer my concern. I have not been threatened, bought off, compromised, shamed, or frightened into quitting. I'm simply "burned out" , and have other things to do with my life. As abuse of government power continues, so does the need for citizens to monitor their activities. Many believe there is no political solution. Perhaps the correct solution hasn't been applied. Last week, I was told that a tax revolt was waiting to happen. Here in Columbus last Tuesday, a handful of people successfully campaigned against a tax increase for a new sports complex despite being out spent over 250 to 1 and having every local media source against them. A lesson can be learned from this. My position on the Second Amendment (as well as the rest of the Bill of Rights) has not changed. I will be taking some time for myself this summer, preparing for political battles ahead. There is simply no magic bullet the will restore this country to a Constitutional government. There is no way out of the hard work of running canidates for local elections, building broad coalitions around popular single issues. I have found many friends during this "tour of duty". Thank you all. I'll carry the memories of meeting you forever. In Liberty, J.J. Johnson.
From: Gary Hunt (firstname.lastname@example.org) To: Martin Lindstedt (email@example.com) Date: Sat, 03 May 1997 17:56:36 -0700 Subject: The Courage of our Founders? The Courage of our Founders? Gary Hunt Outpost of Freedom May 3, 1997 Sunday, April 27, 1997 was a day that could have been recognized by history. Instead, it has become another blemish on the face of the Constitutionalist community. Robert Scheidt had stopped by the Rowe home. What occurred in the home, we do not know. What may have occurred after Scheidt left, however, is the beginning of a drama that has played out these past six days. Shortly after leaving the Rowe home, Scheidt was picked up by local authorities, his van searched and firearms found. It appears that these firearms were nothing more than semi-automatic, but they landed Scheidt in jail. Having heard that Scheidt had been arrested, McLaren directed other members of the Embassy of Texas, Defense Force, to 'secure' the Rowe's, in retaliation for the arrest of Scheidt. After some negotiations with the Sheriff, an agreement was reached that the Rowe's would be released in return for the release of Scheidt. Soon, Scheidt was back on the embassy grounds, and the then twelve or thirteen 'dug in' to wait for the imminent attack. After all, we now have five or six people charged with kidnapping, and one, although released, apparently having firearms charges against him. Within hours, hundreds of primarily Texas State Police and Sheriff's Deputies, had surrounded the Embassy grounds. As verbal shock-waves echoed throughout the Internet, radio and television broadcasts, a siege of unique circumstances begin to form. For the second time, a siege wass laid because the 'under-dog' (non-government) side of the incident was charged with a sort of financial crime. Not that the Freemen or the Embassy people are wrong, for the dollar is worthless, and how can you be charged with stealing nothing? However, unlike Waco and Ruby Ridge, the players are people who have become aggressive, and by their acts, have created difficulties for others. The dilemma that arose, for the Constitutionalist community, was whether it would be proper to defend against the government, when those you would be defending were acting morally below the higher standard we would prefer to support. Should assistance be offered, or not? was the continually discussed question on the Internet. Many answered yes, and a nearly equal number, to the contrary. Verbal attacks were made against those who would go to Texas, and attacks against those who wouldn't stand behind their brother. Probably a true hey day for the government. The division had reached proportions unheard of in past events. On Friday, May 2, Robert Scheidt was allowed to leave the Embassy grounds and turn himself in on charges of "engaging in organized criminal activity." Wait a minute! Wasn't Scheidt the one that the others were willing to risk all for? And, what else did those inside surrender when they surrendered Scheidt? All of a sudden, the count of the defenders was reduced from the previously reported 'twelve or thirteen' to seven remaining inside, Mike Matson, Robert "White Eagle" Otto, Greg and Karen Paulson, Richard and Evelyn McLaren and Richard Keys. Suddenly, the Texas State Police backed off of their threat of imminent attack. Why, there were nearly half of the number originally estimated, and now, down by one. Surely, these loose lips had sunken the ship of state for the Embassy. There can be little doubt that Scheidt told all, including armament, location of escape routes, booby-traps, defensive information, contacts outside, etc. The entire integrity of what was purported to be a military operation was now unable to be sure if there were any secrets un-revealed. Friday night resulted in apprehension, not only at Fort Davis, but all over the country. In a short-wave broadcast, McLaren put out a plea for support, "Mayday! Mayday! Mayday! Hostiles are invading the Republic of Texas embassy. "We have hostiles in the woods. This is a Mayday call for any nation in the world. ... We are being invaded!" This final act of requesting assistance, however, was not the first. It was with reliance upon the need and determination of those at Fort Davis that others acted and reacted, around the country. Although most of those who might have gone to Texas were adamant that, unless there were federal involvement, there was no call for 'our intervention', there were others who were outspoken over the events, or even willing to go in support of the Embassy. On Wednesday, seven men were arrested at the Flying K truck stop, near Pecos and Interstate 20. They were armed, and according to first reports, their moves were reported by an informant [see http://www.azi.com/opf/okc0508.htm ]. Seven men, willing and courageous enough to attempt to help their fellow man in a time of need. How many others were on their way, or had arrived in the area? Surely, the government, whose intelligence gathering is better than ours, was aware of many. On Friday, the Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife announced that it was temporarily closing the Davis Mountains State Park near Fort Davis and the Balmorhea State Park in neighboring Reeves County during the day and was restricting overnight camping. It began to appear that the line had been drawn. Another group of outspoken Constitutionalists, the First Colorado Light Infantry (Ron Cole, Wally Kennett and Kevin Terry) were arrested in Denver. Perhaps as a result of the government's apprehension over the events at Fort Davis. It appears that an informant was involved in this arrest, as well. Government was surely braced for disaster. All over the country, a heightened tension was prevailing, on both sides, similar to what happened after the Oklahoma City Bombing [see http://www.azi.com/opf/okc0427.htm ]. Instead, we have at least eighteen people in custody, and we have been set back another step. Our progress since Waco can be measured only in the negative. Why? Because, the courage of those who find themselves in a confrontational situation are lacking one of the major elements prevalent some two hundred years ago. Words, rather than actions, have become the mainstay of the 'patriot' community. Verbal bantering, expressed strength of conviction [see http://www.azi.com/opf/GL940528 ], and, ultimately, absolute denial. The result? Those that, though not in a position to prove their worth on the front line, are willing to defend their neighbor find that the cause they were willing to take arms in defense of, has let them down -- and, now, they, too, are gone. -- Gary Hunt, Outpost of Freedom firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.azi.com/opf -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Gary: Thank you Gary. You have brought out in the open a divisive question which has haunted the Resistance movement since Oklahoma City, and which our Cause has been able to duck by finding fault with the messenger. We could duck when it was the Manchurian Oswald McVeigh because we said that he shouldn't have bombed a government building with children in it. When it was Starr, Looker, Viper Militia, Kemp, we said that they were stupid and brought it upon themselves. Now we are uncomfortable because McLaren has intentionally brought the government down on himself because of his filing all them liens against gubbnmint and gubbnmint-lovers and because he allegedly 'kidnapped' somebody to protect his own. We are uncomfortable because we are going to see the government kill some people to protect the interests of government power and because some of us ran our mouths off in the past about how we wouldn't allow it any more. But we did. I will republish above letter in the Modern Militiaman's Internet Gazette after events have reached their culmination with the murders of the Ft. Davis holdouts. As I look at it, this is another small step leading up to total civil war in America. This time the rebels have identified themselves as legitimate combatants in accordance with the laws of war and the Geneva Convention and demand to be treated as such. Instead they shall be murdered under color of law when for all such practical purposes there is no law other than the law of the jungle running riot in the land. So what am I going to do about it? That is the question that each of us have to ask and answer in our hearts. Nobody else can answer it for us. In the solitude of our own hearts we must each grapple with the truth, and then live with our decision. It is a divisive question only because each of us improperly and fearfully asks, "Well, what is somebody else going to do about it?" Why should what someone else does, someone who lives under different circumstances, and with different talents and abilities really matter? We live in a world wherein each of us enters alone, and so we shall depart this life. So there is no necessity to validate each of our lives as meaningful as to whatever others did or said. The McLarens and their small group have chosen to do what they have as individuals chosen to do. We know what will happen. So does the government. Another one of lines supporting a decayed civilization will snap, and then another and another until there is no going back to what was before. So what am "I" going to do about this? I'm not saying. Let the government live in fear for what I might do. It is potential energy which cannot be dissipated and is counteracted far too late. Listen up, government agents. In the civil war you caused and have been waging against us since we won the last one 220 years ago, there will be no front lines. Conversely there shall be no rear areas, no safe places to hide. You will never learn who your enemy is. You shall never see the hands that strike. A thousand eyes shall see your evil, and 500 tongues spread it to the winds. You will not dare to venture out of your enclaves, and all of your cowardly nightmares shall come true a hundred-fold. Pleasant dreams! Such are the positive results I expect from the upcoming murders of McLaren and company. --Martin Lindstedt Editor, Modern Militiaman's Internet Gazette 8:22 am, May 4, 1997.
Frankly, I enjoy this aspect of publishing the most. I have a rather combative nature which I enjoy keeping in fine form. Besides, I do enjoy teaching lessons in logic and some people are in dire need of lessons.
So step right up and have your turn by sending me some e-mail and giving me a good whack. And like Sir Gawain in his dealings with the Green Knight, you shall receive one in return.

Some by an assortment of "militia generals" and one by a re-revisionist historian of the type I have been urging that the "constitutional militias" recognize. I am of course pleased to know that I have done something right to have made both sides squall, as they have nothing in common except an inability to think their professed beliefs through to an end conclusion.

But now I feel like sallying out and bonging some head of nitwit. Unlike most people, I have a reason for everything I do. Modern Militiaman #5 was most certainly no exception, especially given the date of April 19, 1997. During the past year, I have seen the open militia movement cut open by the corrupt courts from the outside, and torn apart by strife from the inside. As a result, the militia movement has gone underground because it had to. As Managing Editor and Founder of Modern Militiaman, I have consistently advised reality by publishing the need to pursue "leaderless resistance. I have also shown how "constitutions" and "laws" are by themselves worthless when not obeyed or enforced by decent people. In fact, such scraps of paper can become death-traps and snares for the unwary honest man who ends up becoming the only one obeying the law, on trial for his life, liberty and property, judged by thieves, murderers, liars and parasites. I have published articles by Louis Beam and Lysander Spooner, when they covered the subject matter far more thoroughly and definitively than I could do so myself. So what is the purpose of Modern Militiaman, A Journal of the Resistance Movement, put out about every two months? It's avowed purpose is to be THE magazine of Patriot Philosophy that everyone who is someone in the Resistance movement reads first thing right off. If the general public or the government-enforcement community wants to observe it as well, then fine. Perhaps with understanding the coming bloodbath to restore civilization will not have to be as deep or wet. If you read Modern Militiaman and say, "This lunatic's ravings are not for me," then you are absolutely right. Such is definitely not for you, and you have as much right to be perusing it as a deacon, aroused but dishonest, wanting to rant and rave about smut pages on the Internet. Secondly, by opening up a forum open to the best thinking of the Resistance Movement, it is my hope that the best of the Resistance can form the basis for true understanding of each other, and thus work independently towards forming a limited confederacy as the basis for a renewal of civilization after the current decaying democracy destroys itself. I have seen, during my 2 1/2 year observance of the open militia movement, people buying militia uniforms complete with officer's insignia, a whole PX worth of ribbons, strutting around while not knowing how to handle a new SKS out of the box with only 20 rounds of ammunition. And I wondered just how long they would last. And they were looking down on me because I cannot afford anything more than blue jeans and flannel shirts, but I do have a 30-06 deer rifle firing reloaded ammunition and scrambling after used brass. Well, the guys with the SKS's and $100 uniforms with no rank lower than 1st Lieutenant are long gone. Probably their SKS's are sitting in the closet, with a rusting bore, and with 5-10 rounds left in the Norinco box. Maybe they are today's keyboard Kommandos. I don't have time to waste on these fools. I don't care what they think, if they think at all. I knew full well, when I wrote about the need for the Modern Militia movement to recognize the Christian Identity, White/Black Nationalists, and even the Skins and Neo/Non-Neo Nazi militias, that I was stepping right into a shitstorm from the Politically Correct militia generals. But somebody had to recognize reality. I estimated based upon what I saw at Gadsden Alabama last May that between 1/3 and 2/5 were Christian Identity or White Nationalist. What with events of the past year, I strongly suspect that the percentage is much, much higher today. Arguing with reality is an exercise for the irrational. I am not irrational. Nor am I going to argue with the irrational or the cowardly. The only thing subject to debate is whether or not it was wise of me to have let that particular cat out of the bag or not. As I look at it, our enemies have been telling everyone that ALL of us are CI or racists. Might as well make ALL of these con-men's nightmares come true and make them wonder if all their past lies paved the way for the current reality. Patricia Neill informed me about a conversation wherein some militia nitwit had a conversation about how what I was writing made militiamen look like racists. Then, toward the end of the conversation, he admitted that he was a racist himself! What an idiot! Next thing you know, he will be filing with the IRS to form a non-profit militia group with tax-exempt status as a 501(c)(3) corporation. Come to think of it, for the sake of mischief, maybe I ought to file such papers myself and rake in some bucks from fools instead of having to fight for free. Patricia Neill brought up the valid point of what should we do with such allies after we win. And of course, we shall win, because we can rebuild a civilization and our enemies are only able to parasite off what we build. But many of us will not be around to see that day. So why worry about the future when we may not be around to dictate terms on that date? Also, are we not facing an evil present, with a evil government out to utterly destroy us, without any need to look down on others who are facing a similar peril? When we do win, are we prepared to fight another civil war with the other partisans who have different religious beliefs and are not as 'tolerant' as we profess ourselves to be? And what leverage will we have with those people whom we have always professed to despise? The time is now to recognize reality. The time is now to forge loose alliances against the common enemy. While we might very well have differences with some of our allies, our enemies share the common goal of further enslaving all of us that they do not kill. When faced with such an alliance of evil, should we mindlessly cling to our past indoctrination? No. When the coming war is won, and the only ones left standing are the former rebels, and the social parasites, predators and their human herd animals are dead and unburied, then by the very nature of the struggle there shall be no more monolithic anarcho- tyrannies left. Instead of a "New World Order" there shall be "No World Order." The wary survivors are not going to establish an EEOC first thing right off. The natural order of things will kick in and people will tend to live with like attracted to like. No government enforced segregation. No government enforced integration. There won't be any lawyers or courts to protect some criminal who has so little sense as to infringe upon the rights of others. The survivors will be a pretty hard-bitten lot and will enforce a rough, raw sort of justice. Does anyone really believe that they will have an inclination or spare time on their hands to enslave other hard-bitten heavily armed survivors? I would prefer to tend my own fields and sleep in peace at night rather than worry about my throat getting slit by some disgruntled slave who used to be a freeman. As Mr. Kurt Saxon and Mr. Robert Heinlein observed, Survivors tend to be very well-behaved ladies and gentlemen. ----------------------------- Mr. JJ Johnson was offered the post of Roving Editor for Modern Militiaman Issue #6 because I reckoned -- rightly -- that it would be a plus for the e-'zine. Mr. Johnson runs his own newsletter, and is quite literate. He is an excellent orator. I met him at Gadsden Alabama last year. He is a proven militia leader. When he went before the panel of U.S. Senate on 'terrorism' several years ago with other militia leaders, the closest thing to even a glimmer of understanding was between Mr. Johnson and Senator Thompson. So with the two rules that MM#6 must publish at least 2 articles from the managing editor (me) and at least 1 article from the other roving editor(s) (Patricia Neil) between May 20 and June 19th defined, I am happy to say that JJ accepted. I have always been fortunate in my selection of Roving Editors. By the way, I am quite aware that Mr. Johnson has a black skin and a white wife. Any bellyaching about this to myself is a guaranteed way to be placed upon my "shithead list" for thorough ridicule. A man of Mr. Johnson's abilities is an asset to Modern Militiaman. I have published some of Mr. Johnson's material before, and after his stint as a Roving Editor he will have the right to have published at least one article in every issue after #6. From the very first issue of Modern Militiaman, I recognized the need to get outside talent to edit at least every other issue. I do not want an inbred, parochial e-'zine. The Modern Militiaman is always seeking people of merit and ability. Every Roving Editor has pulled his/her own weight and that tradition will continue. There are no figureheads or deadwood allowed to accumulate around here. What we worry about is how do we top the last issue. Lastly, I have never heard of this Dennis Clark fellow or any other of the mediocrities who want to bitch over what they read that gave them an itch in Modern Militiaman. I never heard of them writing anything worth reading. Probably should not have even mentioned his name, as it has all the relevance to me of a dog yapping. As the proverb goes: "The dogs may bark, but the caravan will continue." But I will wish Mr. Clark well in his career as a militia general or as a militia general's government informant. It is one hell of a deal to have to run around in life with a case of terminal stupidity. Thank you, Patricia for holding the fort for me until I could get out my favorite axe and come out swinging. Please get in touch with the idiots I neglected to insult and tell them that what I said goes for them as well. I'll print this in my Modern Militiaman's Internet Gazette. --Martin Lindstedt, Managing Editor, Modern Militiaman *************************************************** * The Patriot Coalition at URL: * * http://www.geocities.com/CapitolHill/Lobby/1076 * ***************************************************.

If one writes anything of value, it is to be uneasily expected that there are all sorts of people who will proceed to put themselves into whatever is written, using it to justify whatever dogma, point of view, or random piece of paranoia they may have. My article, Dangerous Liaisons" in Modern Militiaman #5 was predominantly aimed at the open, so-called "Constitutional militias," informing them that reality should dictate for them to stop acting like a bunch of politically correct wusses, and to realize that it is time to stop whuppin’ up on people who are our de-facto allies. I expected criticism from the Tory element and the militia generals -- and I received it. I then chided them for their foolishness. But then who should enter the fray but a re-revisionist "historian" named Michael Hoffman II. Mr. Hoffman comes from out of the Christian Identity, White Nationalist, Neo- Nazi alliance that I argued that the modern Militia movement should recognize as allies. Regardless of Mr. Hoffman’s schizoid "review" of "Dangerous Liaisons," I still feel the same. Reality doesn’t change just because a different dog barks at the caravan. In fact, money can’t buy such a review. Especially since I do not have any. While I admit I think it is a plus for a re-revisionist "historian" such as Mr. Hoffman to disparage my article, let me hasten to assure the terminally paranoid that no, it wasn’t a plot between Mr. Hoffman and myself. Of course, if I am "a conscious or unconscious agent of the System" as Mr. Hoffman alleges, then such an assurance is rather worthless, isn’t it? First of all, let me agree that there are numerous agents provocateur running around, anxious to provoke violence so that the gubbnmint (and maybe even Jews) have a rational for imposing an open totalitarian system. Let me hasten to agree that Timothy McVeigh was a mere Manchurian Oswald, and that his puny truck bomb was indeed the signal for the feds to detonate shape charges bringing down the federal building and killing a lot of "innocent bureaucrats" and their children. Without a doubt, a significant level of violence and barbarism have been fomented by federal agents provocateur. With a rising spread of 'terrorism' it is highly likely that a large portion of the American people will demand more totalitarianism in order for the government to 'protect them' from the awful right-wing extremist threat. Given all these facts in common, what are Mr. Hoffman’s 'solutions?' One is to "educate and organize" the American people to withstand this steady erosion of freedom. The other is to concentrate people who feel like Mr. Hoffman in one place, say in Northern Idaho, where Mr. Hoffman’s first 'solution' can be implemented. Mr. Hoffman’s first notion is foolish. The Amerikan people in the mass want less freedom and more 'security' which ‘their government’ is supposed to provide for them. Mr. Hoffman ignores the fact that both nature and nurture are against him. There has been a steady increase in social entropy over the past century and it is speeding up well past the point of no return today. As a public service, I have scanned and transcribed much of Dr. Lothrup Stoddard’s 1922 classic "The Revolt Against Civilization" for free on a number of my WWW sites. Dr. Stoddard, an early eugenicist writer, ascribed most of the coming decline in Western Civilization to "inferior germ-plasm," i.e. heredity. However, looking at Dr. Stoddard’s masterpiece, I must conclude that Dr. Stoddard was an optimist. Dr. Stoddard didn’t account for over four generations of planned and promoted social entropy delivered via the government school system. Anyone who really thinks it is now a mere matter of simply reversing the process by working within the established political, legal, or financial system is a fool. These systems, while in a state of drift towards Armageddon, were not set up and imposed by 'accident.' There is a state of war between such social systems and what little remains of healthy tissue within the body politic. So will there be more violence, about 99 percent of it of either government origin or caused as a reaction to government misconduct? Of course. And yes, it will get worse. But is this awful? Not unless you yourself are unlucky or foolish to be caught up within it. Look, why should anyone get annoyed about the sight of lower-class bank-robber criminals and police state criminals fighting it out and killing one another while a moronic majority looks uneasily on like a cow watching a fight between packs of wolves? Sooner or later one faction of criminals of the top or bottom will prevail and promptly destroy their diminishing means of survival. What difference does it make to you which gang of criminals wins if either way you will be predated upon by the winners? Wouldn’t you be better off if all the criminals were to thoroughly exterminate one another? Better get out from under this mess and make sure you have the means for eliminating the last predators after they eat the last head of their human herd animals. Where do you think this government gets its support from? From whence arise these gangs of informants, agents provocateurs, and criminals? Why cry over parental idiots who raised a pair of dangerous criminals who put them to death? Why cry when thieving banks get robbed by amoral criminals? By all means, give cowardly police thugs more firepower with range sufficient to reach downtown, or even to suburbia. Why should anyone worry about inner-city minorities running riot, killing social workers and bureaucrats, looting and burning government buildings? The point I am trying to make is that there no innocents anymore. Mr. Hoffman’s trying to somehow educate the vast masses who are about to reap the consequences of their foolishness is absurd. I have always tried to identify with my audience. It is an audience of quality -- not a mass of people whose only qualification is that they have money to buy books which they will drool over like social pornography, showing only to other people who can appreciate Mr. Hoffman. I have asked these people of quality to prepare for the day when they will have to defend their lives and property against the hostile masses. To let the society and civilization fall apart in its process of decline and fall. But to not seek a fight with other people of quality who merely happen to believe in Christian Identity or seek to form their own society based upon homogenous racial or social characteristics after the collapse arrives. Whether or not it is an intelligent idea to concentrate people who think like Mr. Hoffman in one general area, such as Northern Idaho will be determined by a pass/fail grade in survival. I found Mr. Hoffman’s article schizoid in its conclusions of whatever facts he presented. To my way of thinking, he has no idea of whatever the true situation is like today. If Mr. Hoffman cannot figure out the political, moral, social, legal, cultural situations of a time in which he lives, is it not absurd to think that as a historian that he has a better understanding of similar events which happened years, decades, centuries ago? Secondly, I myself left a long paper trail of writings easily available upon my numerous WWW pages. Did Mr. Hoffman read any of past issues of Modern Militiaman, wherein I advocated the splitting of militia organizations into cells based upon ties which the government would find difficult to infiltrate? And yet, according to Mr. Hoffman, I am either "a conscious or unconscious agent of the System." If Mr. Hoffman would have done some further research, he would have found that I myself have spent some few trifles of time in political activity, running for governor, sheriff, state legislature, municipal judge. I did so not because I had a realistic chance of being elected, but to have a forum to say that which I thought needed to be said. If Mr. Hoffman were to run for political office himself, what would he tell the general public? What is on his own particular WWW page? If so, I bet he would find that he has even less support from the masses than what little I have been able to get from the voting public. Which brings me to my second conclusion as to Mr. Hoffman’s ability as a historian. It is quite obvious to me that Mr. Hoffman wrote above article concerning my motivations without doing any research on my previous writings or stances on the issues as a political candidate. I, on the other hand, looked at his free writings posted, and can now definitely state that I will not be paying money for Mr. Hoffman’s 'histories.' In addition to not being able to analyze the facts, Mr. Hoffman doesn’t seem to bother with collecting any facts which negate his preconceived conclusions. While I have no problem with churning out my own opinions and distributing them openly and freely as revolutionary propaganda, I do have a problem with spending what little money I have on purported 'histories' by Mr. Hoffman. While I was initially annoyed with being imputed a Bolshevik and a federal agent by Mr. Hoffman, still, Mr. Hoffman has done me the favor of sparing me the company of people who think Mr. Hoffman is a competent historian. Those of you who want to run on out and pay good money on a re-revisionist history by Mr. Hoffman should do so.

Since the issue in question concerned what I originally wrote, then perhaps I should be the best judge of my original intent. Secondly, what were your main points -- other than the time being ripe to get the masses to vote favorably for policies they have been indoctrinated from day one to despise? Lastly, calling someone a Bolshevik and government stooge is usually the best and quickest way to invite a response in kind. Tell you what. Let's go back to my original premise, which was for the "constitutional militia(s)" to stop trashing the Christian Identity, White/Black Nationists and even the Neo/Original Nazis and Skinheads, and accept them as allies for the upcoming revolution. In spite of their ideology -- not because of it. I still think the same way, even with youself added to the mixture, because I actually meant what I wrote in MM#5. Love or respect between adherents of differing ideologies has nothing to do with forming mutual alliances for the common defense against the common enemy. Sincerely yours, Martin Lindstedt Managing Editor, "Modern Militiaman" P.S. How would you like to be Roving Editor for "Modern Militiaman" several even issues down the line? Perhaps you would like another crack at setting me straight? -- M.L. > >Yours sincerely, >Michael A.
