In my last post, The American Insurgency, I discussed how we are witnessing the rise of an insurgency in America in real time.
The first thing we did was orient you to the rising threat by describing what an insurgency is and how they operate. In coming messages, we will lay out the players, their goals and objectives, and what we as patriot citizens can do to fight against this.
Despite the gloom and doom from some media outlets and the outright misinformation from others, we don't take this like helpless victims. You get in a vote in this. Are you ready to take action?
The first step is establishing security.
Security is more than just guns and ammo. For now, we start with the home front. In my post, Riots, Covid, and Your Security, I suggested 4 things you should do - at a minimum- to begin preparing. In short, I suggested you should:

For training, having a gun or a carry permit is not enough. You need to learn both the skills and tactics necessary to defense yourself and others. You can always train with us. As you know, we run training in several states. If that's not an option, seek out a knowledgable and qualified instructor to help you with your training.
Now let's talk about supplies, namely, food. I typically keep some ready to eat meals from My Patriot Supply. They offer great storable food solutions at affordable prices. When I first started out, I stocked piled 3-days worth of food supplies. After that, I gathered one week, it grew from there.
I like having the base of my food supplies in storable form like this because it's easy to access, easy to maintain, and easy to transport if I have move. How much should you store up?
Well, that depends on your location, size of the your family, financial resources, and other circumstances. Starting out can be overwhelming, so start small. Try getting one week's worth of supplies together. If that's too much, try 72 hours. Just start somewhere. There are other great options to source your storable food, but My Patriot Supply is what I use. I've a good experience with them.
Remember the toilet paper shortages? Remember the truckers saying they were going to make their routes in areas where politicians had opted to "defund the police?" I have no idea if a food shortage will ever occur. But I know this, these last few months have shown us just how fragile the supply chain is. It doesn't take much to cause a panic.
So, get to work and let me know you're progressing. If you have any questions, just hit us up on email. I'll help you any way I can.
