Outdoor Editor Says NRA Easy Target For Media Media cliches find the NRA an easy target, noted Rich Landers, outdoors editor of the Spokane, WA, Spokesman-Reviews in a Nov. 24 column. "The National Rifle Association is the nation's favorite stereotype," Landers said. "Political cartoonists like to picture the NRA as 'Bubba,' the burly goon with a gun. National reporters approach virtually every gun-related story assuming the NRA is the villian. "But the public deserves more than the cliches the media seem to relish. "For example, a Washington Post wire story, published in this and numerous other papers, reported that the NRA had supported certain candidates in the Nov. 3 elections. The story said that the so- called 'gun lobby' gave $1.8 million to political candidates. "The story is objective and factual. But it's ludicrous when you consider what stories did not run in newspapers across the country. Real Estate "Here's some perspective. "In the 1988 elections (complete figures aren't available yet for 1992), the national associations representing real estate agents spent $3 million to lead the nation in contributions to candidates, according to the Federal Elections Commission. "The NRA was No. 32 on the list, with contributions totalling $772,000. "The real estate lobby spent another $5.9 million for political purposes not directly connected to candidates. "Yet, when was the last time you saw a national story about the 'real estate lobby' and its influence in land-use decisions that affect everything from homeless people to wildlife habitat?" Landers added, "Extremists are delighted that the media are gullible for cliches. "Consider the letter that appeared in Sunday's sport section from Chris Bowers of Liberty Lake. (His name should be familiar because he and his housemate, Kerry Masters, average nearly a letter a week devoted to trashing hunters, medical researchers and all meat eaters.) Cliches "Bowers launched into a litany of anti-NRA cliches, virtually every one of which is either a lie or a sensational misrepresentation. "For example: "--Bowers said the NRA defends the sale of cop-killer bullets. "Fact: In the early '80's, the NRA opposed legislation that would have banned the use of teflon-coated bullets, which can pierce through bullet-proof vests. But the ambiguous legislation also would have outlawed about 85% of the bullets commonly used for deer hunting. "In 1983, the NRA, working with law enforcement groups, supported a bill that zeroed in on the issue by prohibiting the sale of teflon- coated bullets to the public while allowing them to be used by law officers. "Nowadays, they're called 'cop-saver' bullets. Plastic Guns "--Bowers said the NRA defends the possession of plastic handguns that don't trigger metal detectors. "Fact: The so-called plastic gun issue came up several years ago after Glock, an Austrian gun manufacturer, introduced a handgun that incorporated plastic in its metal construction. The media dubbed it the terrorist's gun of choice, claiming it could not be detected in airline security systems. "The gun, however, has plenty of metal to be detected. "The NRA opposed legislation to ban the Glock, but supported legislation that specifically prohibits the sale of firearms capable of evading airport security systems. Armed Felons "--Bowers said the NRA fought to allow convicted felons to apply to the government to rearm themselves. "Fact: On May 5, 1992, the NRA testified before a U.S. Senate subcommittee that it supported laws that deny restoration of firearms rights to felons, especially in cases where guns are used in crimes involving drugs or violence. "However, the NRA suggested that the law provide some avenue to review applications, considering that the definition of a felon differs from state to state. "--Bowers said the NRA promotes contest killing of wildlife, such as prairie dog shoots. "Fact: Wilflife biologists have promoted the shooting of prairie dogs in some areas to help control the growth of prairie dog towns without wiping them out. "Previously, pairie dogs were controlled with non-discriminating poisons that killed everything from ravens and eaglkes to snakes and ferrets." -------------------------------------------------------------------- The preceeding was transcribed from The New GUN WEEK for Friday, February 19, 1993, page 7, in accordance with GW's standard reprint permission clause.

Final Notes -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= I. What is the Patriot Guidebook I wrote this guide a few weeks after the bombing incident in Oklahoma City. I am a member of several militia and right-wing groups, and realized the lack of any real complete guide to a small-time militia member with ideas and information for him to do locally. What you are about to read is a document based on various groups, individuals, and articles that definitively explains what the role of a right-wing extremist is, and how to accomplish that role. I did *NOT* write this guide for White Supremacists. Let me use this temporary soapbox to explain the intense hate i hate for nazis and the klan. The real Right Wing does not embrace or accept nazis or white supremacists as valid members. To me, they are only fringe lunatics who really dont know what they are fighting for. In order for us to succeed in our goal, we must unite all the people of the United States, because as Abraham Lincoln once said, "A divided house cannot stand." This guide was written for sane, well-minded right-wingers who are tired of the status quo and who are looking for a change. If I have offended you so far, i suggest you stop reading now, and save yourself further annoyance. II. The Organizations of the Right Wing "...March on, march on, Keep us forever free... ...Fight on, Fight on, And keep our nation free. And let them see our motto be, 'Don't Tread On Me.'" - Right-Wing protest chant "Join or DIE." - Motto from a Revolutionary Propaganda page by Benjamin Franklin. The first thing one needs to know, is the various groups within the right wing. If i was to list every single organization within the right-wing, i'd be wasting my time. Here are a few that a good conservative/extremist SHOULD know, if nothing, for basic knowledge. If you know of any specific groups you think i should add to this list for later versions of this manual, please email me at email@example.com with the appropriate information. - The John Birch Society - Phone # : 1-800-JBS-USA1, 414-749-3780 Address : The John Birch Society P.O. Box 8040 Appleton, Wisconsin 54913 Membership Dues: $48 plus an optional subscription cost for The New American newspaper. The John Birch Society has been a major facet of the right-wing since its creation in 1958. It is a non-militant, ultraconservative anti-communist group that supports termination of all relations and trade with communist countries and urges the maintenance of a strong U.S. military. It describes itself as an educational group that seeks less government and "more responsibility." The JBS advocates FREE ENTERPRISE, LOWER TAXES, and complete U.S. withdrawal from the United Nations. It publishes two newspapers, The JBS Bulletin, and The New American. The JBS accepts any ethnic or religious minority so long as they put America over their background. If one orders information with them, they send very clear and fact- based literature about their positions, and why they are valid. For instance, one pamphlet details 12 well backed reasons, why we must "GET OUT" of the United Nations. Birchers are known for their political vigilance, and their credibility. - The Minutemen - Phone # :[[category:Politics]]
Address : Current Membership Dues: Little has been heard from the Minutemen since the late '70's. I am 99% sure that they still exist, it seems they have just slipped from the limelight. The Minutemen were one of the most publicized militant groups of right-wingers in the '60's and '70's. Robert DePugh, their charasmatic leader kept the Minutemen active and vigilant, throughout this period. The Anti-Defamation League several times conducted covert espionage activities on them, trying to discern that rumors concerning wether the Minutemen were anti-semetic were true. Those rumors proved false, when the On Target Newsletter of theirs called neo-Nazis "tin-horn Hitlers" and various other derogatory terms. The Minutemen stress non-communism, non-socialism, and non-facism. They horde weapons and doomsday material for the "Day". They can be contacted through publications distributed by the JBS, and other groups. - The Freemen - I have no information on joining or addresses for this group. However, they are extremely similar to the Minutemen, and have been featured in various magazine and newspaper articles with the Michigan Militia and other highly publicized right wing groups. - Local Militias - Local militias can often be contacted through various right-wing national groups, like the Minutemen, or through electronic bulletin board systems, national or local. If you intend on joining a local militia, be sure to know the following: 1.) How many members does it have? (It should have 100+) 2.) Does it conduct armed training sessions? (It should) 3.) Does it have any links to other groups? Which ones? 4.) Is it a white supremacy group? (If they are serious, the answer should be a firm NO) 5.) What are the requirements for joining, and how much does it cost (if anything)? Here is a base list of several militias in active states. This info was found in an ADL (Anti-Defamation League) report, and had to be edited extensively because of intense political bias, and because of several listings of white-supremacist (illegitimate, in my opinion) groups. Arizona Efforts have recently begun in Arizona to create a militia movement. David Espy, who portrays himself a latter-day American Revolutionary captain, has attempted to organize militia meetings over the last several weeks. An advertisement he placed in the September 11 and 25. 1994 issues of the Prescott Courier announced a meeting in Paulden, Arizona of the "Association of the Sons of Liberty and the Volunteer Militia." The purpose of the meeting was to discuss plans for action against the federal government which, in his words, "continue[s] to pass legislation that weaken our unalienable, private property and Bill of Rights (sic)." The formation of a militia is an integral part of Espy's plan: "So, everyone out there, who thinks that taking pride in owning firearms, is being fanatical or nuts, should remember where you are living and how we all got here to begin with. It wasn't by just sitting back and letting the government run our lives and usurping our fundamental rights as free people. So forgive me, if I see a clear and present danger with what is happening in our country today, and that I feel a genuine and rational need to form a volunteer militia force. If for no other reason than to [let] Washington know that there is still a large group of us out here that have inherited revolutionary DNA and are willing to fight for it until our dying breath." Another aspect of his plan is a demand for "the legal cessation (sic) of Arizona from these federal United States." Also active in Arizona is Gary D. Hunt, a man obsessed with the Waco Branch Davidian incident. Hunt himself was present during the siege in Waco and wrote about the event at the time, comparing the Branch Davidians to the original revolutionary Minutemen: "I understand why [the Minutemen] were willing to stand and face portions of the greatest military force in the world. And I understand why David Koresh and the other brave defenders of Mount Carmel stand fearlessly defending their home and mine." More recently, Hunt has distributed a flier dated July 2, 1994 and labeled "Sons of Liberty No. 3." The flier describes the effectiveness of militias in the Revolutionary War and suggests that militias are again needed now. At the bottom of the flier, written in by hand, Hunt announced: "March on Phx FBI 8-25-94 5-6 p.m. to release the Branch Davidians. Bring legal signs + guns. Tell a friend." The FBI and Phoenix Police paid close attention, but the planned march never materialized. Colorado Militias in Colorado have benefitted from the support of a number of right-wing groups. Most active in the movement are so-called Patriot groups that proliferate throughout the state. Others showing support for militias in Colorado are the Constitutionists, The Guardians of American Liberties (GOAL), and state representative Charles Duke. Militias, calling themselves Patriots, are being formed across the state and are currently operating in Lakewood, Longmont, Boulder, and Greeley. The Patriots propaganda promotes the view that the federal government has betrayed the people and the Constitution through laws regarding home-schooling, abortion, taxation, freedom of speech and religion, and, most importantly, gun control. While calling on citizens to take political action (for example, write their Congressmen, attend meetings, etc.), they also urge that people prepare to resist the government by forming militias and stockpiling weapons, groceries and other necessities for survival. The Patriots publish a newsletter and sell tapes and videos through "The Patriot Library." Among the titles for sale are "The New World Order, Communist groups supported by Hillary Clinton," as well as tapes describing black helicopters said to be scrutinizing the actions of citizens in the western states. Guardians of American Liberties, a multi-slate organization centered in Boulder, is attempting to take a leadership role in the militia movement. It describes itself as a national grassroots network of American Citizens formed to insure our government is free of corruption, that it is actively aligned with the will of the people and to safeguard the Constitution of the United States of America from all forms of corruption." GOAL has some 40 to 50 members in Colorado as well as claimed chapters in Texas, Arizona, California and Nevada. It has established a militia committee, although it is not clear what degree of success it has achieved in organizing militias in Colorado or elsewhere. GOAL literature lists these additional committees: a "Federal Reserve IRS Committee." a "Political Prisoner Committee," and a "Sovereignty Freedom Committee," beneath which is printed the slogan, "Kick the Feds out of the Counties." The Constitutionists, a Kansas-based extremist group whose leadership includes Evan Mecham, the impeached former governor of Arizona, has received support in its promotion of militias from Colorado State representative Charles Duke (not related to David Duke). Duke spoke at the group's June conference in Indianapolis and promoted the formation of militias as an effective way for citizens to protect themselves from the government. At a Patriots meeting last July, Duke demanded that "We need some ability to get some firepower to protect the citizens. I would like to see a militia...[the type] that functions as a sheriff's posse and has sufficient training." Radio station KHNC in Johnstown has offered its facilities to the Patriots and other groups active in the militia movement. KHNC broadcasts continuous Patriot programs and talk on "conservative issues." In addition to using the radio to air their views. Colorado militias also disseminate information on computer bulletin boards that reach readers across the country. The Colorado Free Militia and Boulder Patriots, for example, are promoted on the New Age Electronic Information Service, a Colorado bulletin board. Florida A Key Largo-based group calls itself alternately the United States Militia and the 1st Regiment Florida State Militia. Making a specious claim to legitimacy from such documents as the U.S. Constitution, the Federalist Papers, the Florida Constitution and Florida statutes, this group has been attempting to recruit members at "patriotic" and anti-gun control gatherings in Florida. Mimicking the style of the Declaration of Independence, its literature speaks of a "Train of Abuses" perpetrated on state and local governments and the citizenry by the federal government. "Just as our Founding Fathers of this country shook off their shackles of bondage," the group declares, "so must we." The militia's regulations state that "County units will be organized in each county of the state." Militia members are told to expect to spend one weekend a month engaging in unit activities including rallies, shooting events and fund raisers. A list of suitable equipment is provided, which includes one thousand rounds of ammunition per weapon and six 30-round magazines for each militia member. While the group's regulations state that "The unit may not be used against the police or governmental authority within the state of Florida," an exception may be made when such an "entity" commits "crimes of violation of their oath of officer and "of "sections or articles of the Constitution of the United States of America and of this state." The United States Militia's material was distributed at a U.S. Constitution Restoration Rally in Lakeland, Florida, on October 1, 1994. Attended by 1,000 to 1,500 people, the event was sponsored by Operation Freedom, an outfit created by Charles and Ruth Ann Spross of Maitland Florida. The Sprosses describe their effort as a "for profit partnership," and, indeed, they offer for sale scores of video and book titles, such as "The Planned Destruction of America" and Linda Thompson's "Waco, The Big Lie." Featured on the schedule at the October 1 gathering was a speech by M. J. "Red" Beckman, of Montana, who has been influential in the militia movement in his home state. Distributed along with the speakers program at the rally was a sheet bearing the heading: "Paul Revere Rides Again." It proclaimed: "A strong and growing Underground Patriotic Movement with state-wide militia groups exists against The Sinister Ones that is unreported by the monopolistic and controlled establishment media." Stockpile food, water, guns and ammo. Never surrender your weapons.... Form or attend meetings with other spirited patriots.... Consider yourself warned!" Also distributed in large numbers at the rally was a flier urging that "All Gun Owners Should Fire A WARNING SHOT As A Signal To The New Congress" on November 11 at 11:00 pm. "Congress has failed to safeguard the Bill of Rights," it reads, "especially the 2nd Amendment." It further declares: A warship will fire a warning shot across the bow, a rattlesnake will sound off: these warnings are never ignored. It is time to warn politicians that if they do not respect the Bill of Rights they should at least fear the wrath of the People. Congress is forcing the country into a civil war. A group in Tampa that claims alignment with a national "patriot movement" has ordered four judges and several Hillsborough County officials, including the tax collector, to give themselves up for arrest to the group's "Constitutional Court". Founder of the group, Emilio Ippolito, and his daughter, Susan Mokdad, reportedly said they have an unarmed militia composed of volunteers to execute the Constitutional Court's orders. Subsequently, Ed Brown, an activist with an armed militia group in New Hampshire, contacted Florida law enforcement authorities, prosecutors' offices and the Florida Bar Association to express support for Ippolito's court. Idaho As in other parts of the country, the recent rise of militias in Idaho can be linked to four events: the Randy Weaver siege, the Waco disaster, the passage of the Brady Law and the federal anti-crime law. Idaho militias identify particularly closely with the Weaver incident because it took place inside the state and because some key militia figures in the region were allied with Weaver and indeed participated in the events surrounding the siege. Samuel Sherwood, an Idaho militia leader, has recruited hundreds of Idahoans into his United States Militia Association. At a July meeting in Blackfoot, Idaho, Sherwood reportedly told potential recruits that President Clinton's crime bill authorized the government to hire 100,000 former Royal Hong Kong police to come to America to enforce gun control laws. As of August 1991, Sherwood's association has organized militias in at least a dozen of Idaho's counties. Sherwood's recruitment campaign has met with opposition from law enforcement officials. The Tri-County Sheriff's Association, representing 16 eastern Idaho counties, has passed a resolution against the formation of militias. Greg Moffat, Madison County Sheriff and the leader of the association, has asserted that they would "give absolutely no support to the idea of a militia." Indiana Indianapolis is the home base of Linda Thompson, an influential figure in the militia movement nationally. Thompson is a lawyer and chairman of the American Justice Federation, which describes itself as "a group dedicated to stopping the New World Order and getting the truth out to the American public." Thompson claims to have contact with militias in all 50 states. She appears frequently at militia gatherings and gun shows, to lecture and sell her videos "Waco, The Big Lie," and "Waco II - The Big Lie Continues." The latter, she claims, "proves conclusively the government murdered 100 men, women and children at Mt. Carmel in April, 1993." She also sells other propaganda material such as "The Traitor Files," which purport to link "Bill and Hillary Clinton to a Marxist-Terrorist network." On July 13, 1991, Thompson was arrested in Indianapolis for using her vehicle to block a bus carrying supporters of President Clinton's health care plan. She was charged with obstructing traffic. At the time of her arrest police officers seized from her person a .45-caliber pistol and a .22-caliber Derringer pistol. They also found in her vehicle an assault rifle with 295 rounds of ammunition. Her case is pending. Thompson had an even more controversial message to be delivered to the government. The ultimatum commanded members of Congress to initiate legislation immediately that would, among other things, repeal the 14th, 16th and 17th Amendments to the Constitution, and the Brady Law and NAFTA. Designating herself "Acting Adjutant General" of the "Unorganized Militia of the United States" Thompson ordered all participants to come "armed and in uniform." She announced that, besides delivering the ultimatum, "The militia will arrest Congressmen who have failed to uphold their oaths of office, who will then be tried for Treason by citizens courts." Realizing after several months that support for her march was lacking, Thompson called it off, yet her standing in the militia movement apparently remains undiminished. The John Birch Society, troubled about Thompson's influence on its members and staff, found it necessary to warn them against her. On May 12, 1994. the Society, issued an official "admonition to all members and a directive to all employees" to "stay clear of her schemes." They said: "Linda Thompson's call for the arrest in September of members of Congress and the President of the United States by an armed militia is not just insane, it is contrary to all understanding of the nature and identity of the enemy." It appears that even by the standards of the John Birch Society, Thompson is very radical. Meanwhile, Thompson continues to appear at rallies and conferences around the country, and on radio, promoting the militia cause and calling down thunder upon the American government and its law enforcement agencies. A rally to form a militia in Indianapolis took place in September 1994, at a union hall in the south central part of the city. In attendance were some 200 persons, filling the hall to capacity, while an overflow crowd was turned away. A smaller militia is believed to be functioning in Switzerland County, in eastern Indiana. Michigan The militia movement has gained a following in Michigan. The most visible such group in the state has sprung up in northern Michigan. Spokesmen there make the (probably exaggerated) claim that militias have 10,000 members and that brigades are operating or are currently forming in 66 of the state's 83 counties. Meetings reportedly draw 50 to 100 attendees. The issues animating Michigan's militias are the same as those fueling the movement nationally. Chief among them is a belief that gun control legislation is but a prelude to a complete ban on firearms ownership in this country. An essential additional ingredient, though, is their conviction that the government intends to wage war on citizens who refuse to give up their weapons. They cite as evidence for this view the tragic assault on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas, and the 1992 raid on the cabin of Randy Weaver in Idaho, in which Weaver's wife and son and a federal marshal were killed. They also contend that this same federal government is acquiescing in the surrender of U.S. sovereignty to the United Nations and other international bodies. The militia's aims are to "stand against tyranny, globalism, moral relativism, humanism and the New World Order threatening to undermine these United States of America." Norman E. Olson, 47, a Baptist minister and gun-shop owner in Alanson, is the Commander of the 1st Brigade, 2nd Division, Northern Michigan Regional Militia. After a few months of discussion and recruitment, the group was established in April 1994. It conducts training exercises twice a month. At a recent session, weapons reportedly included Chinese SKS semi-automatic assault rifles, shotguns and deer rifles. Olson strenuously denies that the Northern Michigan Regional Militia is racist or anti Semitic. He claims some Jewish ancestry, and professes admiration for Israel. In reference to the aborted march on Washington promoted by Indianapolis militia leader Linda Thompson, Olson has written: "Many thousands are prepared to go to Washington in uniform, carry their guns, prepared to present the ultimatum to the President and to Congress. This may be the beginning of a Concord-like confrontation." A militia pamphlet distributed at a May meeting in Petoskey attended by some 55 people reportedly asked: "What force exists to prevent a state or federally orchestrated massacre like the one in Waco from occurring in Michigan?" Ray Southwell, a real estate agent who is the group's information officer, has said: "I'd guess that within the next two years, you will see the Constitution suspended." His further prediction: "Christian fundamentalists will be the first to go under fascism this time. Just like the Jews were the first last time." Southwell speaks as though he regards confrontation with law enforcement as inevitable. His militia is preparing for the day "when martial law is declared." "We are taking a stand," he says, "and are prepared to lose everything." Other militia activists in Michigan have had their own encounter with the law. Police in Fowlerville (Livingston County) arrested three militia members on September 8, 1994. Loaded rifles and handguns, as well as gas masks, night-vision binoculars and two-way radios, were found in their car. At the men's scheduled September 14 hearing, at least two dozen uniformed supporters staged a protest in front of the courthouse and stomped on a United Nations flag. The suspects failed to appear and are considered fugitives. They were described by their supporters as security aides to Mark Koernke (a.k.a. "Mark from Michigan"), a former Army intelligence officer whose "America in Peril" video and speeches have helped to recruit members to militias around the country. Missouri Militias are active in Missouri but do not appear to be as well-organized as in other states. They operate in at least five southern Missouri counties: Crawford, Green, Barton, Dade and Cedar, and number collectively approximately 130 members. The militias hold irregular meetings to view training videos, discuss paramilitary techniques and exchange literature reflecting right-wing views. Missouri's militias are attempting to organize themselves for political action by, among other things, running candidates for local office. In keeping with their political aspirations, they have attempted to avoid any public identification with more extreme groups, although some members also belong to the John Birch Society and the Populist Party. Montana Militias have been forming in Montana since February 1991. The rhetoric of these groups focuses mainly on gun control and other familiar militia causes. Meetings have been held across the state, drawing as many as 800 at a March 10 meeting in Kalispell. Two other meetings there also drew over 150 participants. Similar gatherings held in Hamilton, Eureka, Big Timber and Great Falls drew over 200 participants each. Smaller numbers attended meetings in Sanders County, Billings and Troy. While the crowds at initial meetings have been large, they have tended to fall off somewhat at subsequent gatherings. Montana militias often dwell on the state's history as an independent outpost of freedom. A recent militia newsletter quoted, with approval, Gary Marbut, president of The Montana Shooting Sports Association (an anti-gun control group) in a call for rejection of all federal control over the state: "Montanans are fed up with the federal government dictating to Montana and the people of Montana and we are through with Congress's increasing encroachment on the Bill of Rights. We have a thirst for freedom in Montana, and we simply will not subsist under the boot heel of federal tyranny. There may be some debate about what the Second Amendment means to the U.S. Supreme Court or the people of Peoria, but there is no question about what the Second Amendment means to the people of Montana. 'The great purpose' as Patrick Henry said, 'is that every man be armed.'" New Hampshire New Hampshire law provides for an "unorganized militia" made up of all citizens over the age of 18 who are not in the national guard or state guard. Militia enthusiasts in New Hampshire have pointed to the state's legislation (as well as the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution) to explain and justify their seemingly oxymoronic organization of "unorganized militias." New Hampshire is the home of the Constitution Defense Militia, a well-organized group with at least 15 members. It is not known if the group engages in paramilitary training or the stockpiling of weapons. New Mexico As in neighboring Arizona, the organization of militias in New Mexico is in the nascent stages. Thus far, the most visible manifestation of pro-militia sentiment in New Mexico has been found in The Free American, a monthly newspaper published privately by Clayton R. Douglas and his wife, Jan Douglas. The September 1994 issue contained an advertisement declaring: "It's Time To Take Matters Into Our Own Hands, It's Time To Protect Our Constitution! Join The New Mexico Unorganized Militia." The accompanying phone number for more information was the number of the newspaper itself. The militia movement appears to be taking hold in Catron County, an area that in recent years has experienced much anti-federal government sentiment among some residents. Among the groups attempting to organize a local militia are "Concerned Citizens" and the "Patriots of Catron County." Finally, literature from Linda Thompson's (see Indiana section) "Unorganized Militias of the United States," has been distributed through gun shops in Albuquerque. North Carolina North Carolina's militia movement has been fueled by an alarmist vision of a U.S. government bent on the destruction of American liberties. A Monroe-based group called Citizens for the Reinstatement of Constitutional Government has coalesced around Albert Esposito. He denies that he is preaching revolution, but his rhetoric includes clear overtones of preparation for battle with the enemy. He urges the group to amass caches of the "Four B's": Bibles, bullets, beans and bandages. Many members own semiautomatic weapons, including AR-15's and AK-47s. The group's program is a mixture of anti-government, religious and conspiratorial ideas. It aims to "make the Holy Bible and the United States Constitution the law of the land," and it vows to "resist the coming New World Order (one world government)." To accomplish its goals, it promises to "Remove treasonous politicians and corrupt judges from positions of authority, and return authority to the people." Citizens for the Reinstatement of Constitutional Government meets twice a month, alternating between Monroe, in Union County, and Matthews, in neighboring Mecklenburg County. At one meeting, Esposito, a 43-year-old contractor, reportedly repeated G. Gordon Liddy's alleged statement about the new crime law's assault weapons ban: "He said. If they pass it, don't obey it. And if they come after you, meet force with force." The group has distributed application forms for the "National Free and Sovereign Civilian Militia, North Carolina state Division." The forms ask applicants whether they are proficient in the operation of handguns and rifles, "reloading ammo," and a variety of survivalist skills. Esposito has espoused his views on guns at Union County commissioners' meetings. He also railed against federal encroachment in announcing his support for a nonbinding resolution passed by the commission in support of school prayer. Holding a copy of the Constitution in the air, he declared: "We control the county. Not Washington." Consistent with such anti-federal government views, Esposito says he has refused to file federal income tax returns for three years running because he regards the tax as unconstitutional. The group he leads split off from a tax-protest group in Charlotte called the Carolina Patriots, three of whose leaders were convicted in October 1994 of conspiracy to help people avoid their tax obligations. Esposito's group has attempted to distance itself from the Carolina Patriots. In addition to their views on guns and taxes, members of the Monroe group have expressed ideas and conspiracy theories that are characteristic of some other militias around the country. These include charges that the Federal Reserve system has enriched a tiny elite (the group's literature advocates the abolition of the Federal Reserve), and that some government employees have been implanted with computer chips in order to monitor the citizenry. Another claim made at one of the group's meetings, that the government cannot require private citizens to obtain a driver's license, echoes the stand of an earlier extremist group, the Posse Comitatus. A separate North Carolina militia group has been formed in Greenville, in the eastern part of the state. Led by Scott Brown, the unit is part of the Idaho-based United States Militia Association. Brown reportedly has said his group worries that government representatives "don't really understand what the Constitution means and stands for, and they're voting away our unalienable rights." It is not known whether the Greenville unit is engaging in any more incendiary rhetoric or activity. A computer bulletin board in Alamance County, called "The Spirit of '76," has served as an area recruiting point for the militia led by Linda Thompson, the Indianapolis woman who is a leading figure in the militia movement nationwide. Another bulletin board system that made Thompson's computerized materials available has referred individuals interested in joining the militia to The Spirit of '76. For its part, The Spirit of '76 has declared itself off limits to police and other government authorities by posting a warning that states: "This BBS [bulletin board system] is a PRIVATE system. Only private citizens who are NOT involved in government or law enforcement activities are authorized to use it." Ohio A militia-type group called "Patriots" meets in Cincinnati and conducts paramilitary exercises in rural Clermont County. Another group, the Ohio State Militia has been featured on television several times. They are also paramilitarists, dedicated to opposing gun control, the United Nations, and the like. For a period, some of their membership were scanning and contacting persons with similar viewpoints over a mailnet called FidoNet, but it is unknown if this link still exists. Virginia On July 27 of this year, James Roy Mullins, a founding member of a militia-like group called The Blue Ridge Hunt Club, was arrested and charged with the possession and sale of a short-barreled rifle and unregistered silencers and with facilitating the unlawful purchase of a firearm. Ultimately, three other members were also charged with firearm offenses. Federal officials said that Mullins had formed the club to arm its members in preparation for war with the government. The cases are pending. The group, formed earlier in 1994, has had as many as 15 members. They are said to have met three times before Mullins' arrest. While members of the group say that their purpose is to lobby against gun control laws, federal law enforcement officials describe it differently. An ATF official who investigated the case said that "Mullins is organizing a group of confederates, to be armed and trained in paramilitary fashion, in preparation for armed conflict with government authorities should firearms legislation become too restrictive." Evidence of such preparation is substantial. In searches of members' homes and storage facilities, federal agents found a stockpile of weapons. In Mullins' home, agents found 13 guns, several of which had homemade silencers. They also found explosives, hand grenades, fuses and blasting caps in a separate warehouse. Even pretrial incarceration has not stopped Mullins from threatening violence. While in jail, he wrote a letter to a friend saying that he wanted to borrow a machine gun in order to "take care of unfinished business" with certain prosecution witnesses. The strongest indications of the group's goals was the draft of a portion of its newsletter found on a computer disk obtained by federal agents. On the disk, Mullins had written: Hit and run tactics will be our method of fighting... We will destroy targets such as telephone relay centers, bridges, fuel storage tanks, communications towers, radio stations, airports. etc... human targets will be engaged ... when it is beneficial to the cause to eliminate particular individuals who oppose us (troops. police, political figures, snitches, etc.). There are various other militias in other states. There is even an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) Militia that engages in sabotaging left-wing and seditious channels. These can most easily be contacted through other militia/right-wing/gun buff groups. - Committees of Correspondence - Phone # : (615)856-6185 Address : Nick Hull, secretary Committees of Correspondence 2702 Kimbrell Rd Lenoir City, TN 37772 The time has come for liberty minded people to begin to talk about how the anti-liberty trends of this country can be reversed. For this purpose, we need to form Committees of Correspondence in each community. Note that these Committees are not oriented towards subversion or revolution - far from it! They are meant as forums where people will discuss how this country is off track, and how it can be gotten back on track. While discussion of such theoretical possibilities is not barred from such groups, it is not the central factor - discussion is. These Committees have greater benefits than stimulating discussion for their members. They provide a method by which like minded people can meet each other, thus developing a known community of such people. By doing so, the foundations are laid for a true citizen's militia, should such a body ever become necessary. Please volunteer to be a member of such a committee! There are no requirements, except that you be willing to meet others in your community, who, like yourself, believe that this country has departed from the ideals of the founding fathers, and has moved towards being a totalitarian state that you would not wish to live in. - The People's Phrunt - Address : TPP c/o RevWilson 427 E. 13th Street Eugene, Oregon 97401 This is a new group that i was told about over Internet Relay Chat. They stand for basically the same thing as the JBS and Minutemen, and are firmly against white supremacy. I cant tell you too much, because i havent had a chance to talk in depth with the creator. But i encourage you to get more info. III. Sabotage/Espionage/Harassment Techniques - BASIC LOCK PICKING - At home you can take your time picking a lock, but in the field, speed is always essential. A lock picking technique called scrubbing can quickly open most locks in a pressure situation. The slow step in basic picking is locating the pin which is binding the most. The force diagram suggests a fast way to select the correct pin to lift. Assume that all the pins could be characterized by the same force diagram. That is, assume that they all bind at once and that they all encounter the same friction. Now consider the effect of running the pick over all the pins with a pressure that is great enough to overcome the spring and friction forces but not great enough to overcome the collision force of the key pin hitting the hull. Any pressure that is above the flat portion of the force graph and below the top of the peak will work. As the pick passes over a pin, the pin will rise until it hits the hull, but it will not enter the hull. The collision force at the sheer line resists the pressure of the pick, so the pick rides over the pin without pressing it into the hull. If the proper torque is being applied, the plug will rotate slightly. As the pick leaves the pin, the key pin will fall back to its initial position, but the driver pin will catch on the edge of the plug and stay above the sheer line. In theory one stroke of the pick over the pins will cause the lock to open. In practice, at most one or two pins will set during a single stroke of the pick, so several strokes are necessary. Basically, you use the pick to scrub back and forth over the pins while you adjust the amount of torque on the plug. You will find that the pins of a lock tend to set in a particular order. Many factors effect this order (obviously), but the primary cause is a misalignment between the center axis of the plug and the axis on which the holes were drilled. If the axis of the pin holes is skewed (non-aligned) from the center line of the plug, then the pins will set from back to front if the plug is turned one way, and from front to back if the plug is turned the other way. Many locks have this defect. Scrubbing is fast because you don't need to pay attention to individual pins. You only need to find the correct torque and pressure. 1.) Insert the pick and torque wrench. Without applying any torque pull the pick out to get a feel for the stiffness of the lock's springs. 2.) Apply a light torque. Insert the pick without touching the pins. As you pull the pick out, apply pressure to the pins. The pressure should be slightly larger than the minimum necessary to overcome the spring force. 3.) Gradually increase the torque with each stroke of the pick until pins begin to set. 4.) Keeping the torque fixed, scrub back and forth over the pins that have not set. If additional pins do not set, release the torque and start over with the torque found in the last step. 5.) Once the majority of the pins have been set, increase the torque and scrub the pins with a slightly larger pressure. This will set any pins which have set low due to beveled edges, etc. ADVANCED LOCK PICKING Simple lock picking is a trade that anyone can learn. However, advanced lock picking is a craft that requires mechanical sensitivity, physical dexterity, visual concentration and analytic thinking. If you strive to excel at lock picking, you will grow in many ways. Mechanical Skills Learning how to pull the pick over the pins is surprisingly difficult. The problem is that the mechanical skills you learned early in life involved maintaining a fixed position or fixed path for your hands independent of the amount of force required. In lock picking, you must learn how to apply a fixed force independent of the position of your hand. As you pull the pick out of the lock you want to apply a fixed pressure on the pins. The pick should bounce up and down in the keyway according to the resistance offered by each pin. To pick a lock you need feedback about the effects of your manipulations. To get the feedback, you must train yourself to be sensitive to the sound and feel of the pick passing over the pins. This is a mechanical skill that can only be learned with practice. The exercises will help you recognize the important information coming from your fingers. The Art of Lock Picking In order to excel at lock picking, you must train yourself to have a visually reconstructive imagination. The idea is to use information from all your senses to build a picture of what is happening inside the lock as you pick it. Basically, you want to project your senses into the lock to receive a full picture of how it is responding to your manipulations. Once you have learned how to build this picture, it is easy to choose manipulations that will open the lock. All your senses provide information about the lock. Touch and sound provide the most information, but the other senses can reveal critical information. For example, your nose can tell you whether a lock has been lubricated recently. As a beginner, you will need to use your eyes for hand-eye coordination, but as you improve you will find it unnecessary to look at the lock. In fact, it is better to ignore your eyes and use your sight to build an image of the lock based on the information you receive from your fingers and ears. The goal of this mental skill is to acquire a relaxed concentration on the lock. Don't force the concentration. Try to ignore the sensations and thoughts that are not related to the lock. Don't try to focus on the lock. Analytic Thinking Each lock has its own special characteristics which make picking harder or easier. If you learn to recognize and exploit the "personality traits" of locks, picking will go much faster. Basically, you want to analyze the feedback you get from a lock to diagnose its personality traits and then use your experience to decide on an approach to open the lock. These are very much the same tactics a right winger would use in other situations, such as evaluating a target. People underestimate the analytic skills involved in lock picking. They think that the picking tool opens the lock. To them the torque wrench is a passive tool that just puts the lock under the desired stress. Let me propose another way to view the situation. The pick is just running over the pins to get information about the lock. Based on an analysis that information the torque is adjusted to make the pins set at the sheer line. It's the torque wrench that opens the lock. Varying the torque as the pick moves in and out of the keyway is a general trick that can be used to get around several picking problems. For example, if the middle pins are set, but the end pins are not, you can increase the torque as the pick moves over the middle pins. This will reduce the chances of disturbing the correctly set pins. If some pin doesn't seem to lift up far enough as the pick passes over it, then try reducing the torque on the next pass. The skill of adjusting the torque while the pick is moving requires careful coordination between your hands, but as you become better at visualizing the process of picking a lock, you will become better at this important skill. Pick Shapes Picks come in several shapes and sizes. The handle and tang of a pick are the same for all picks. The handle must be comfortable and the tang must be thin enough to avoid bumping pins unnecessarily. If the tang is too thin, then it will act like a spring and you will loose the feel of the tip interacting with the pins. The shape of the tip determines how easily the pick passes over the pins and what kind of feedback you get from each pin. The design of a tip is a compromise between ease of insertion, ease of withdrawal and feel of the interaction. The half diamond tip with shallow angles is easy to insert and remove, so you can apply pressure when the pick is moving in either direction. It can quickly pick a lock that has little variation in the lengths of the key pins. If the lock requires a key that has a deep cut between two shallow cuts, the pick may not be able to push the middle pin down far enough. The half diamond pick with steep angles could deal with such a lock, and in general steep angles give you better feedback about the pins. Unfortunately, the steep angles make it harder to move the pick in the lock. A tip that has a shallow front angle and a steep back angle works well for Yale locks. The half round tip works well in disk tumbler locks. The full diamond and full round tips are useful for locks that have pins at the top and bottom of the keyway. The rake tip is designed for picking pins one by one. It can also be used to rake over the pins, but the pressure can only be applied as the pick is withdrawn. The rake tip allows you to carefully feel each pin and apply varying amounts of pressure. Some rake tips are flat or dented on the top to makes it easier to align the pick on the pin. The primary benefit of picking pins one at a time is that you avoid scratching the pins. Scrubbing scratches the tips of the pins and the keyway, and it spreads metal dust throughout the lock. If you want to avoid leaving traces, you must avoid scrubbing. The snake tip can be used for scrubbing or picking. When scrubbing, the multiple bumps generate more action than a regular pick. The snake tip is particularly good at opening five pin household locks. When a snake tip is used for picking, it can set two or three pins at once. Basically, the snake pick acts like a segment of a key which can be adjusted by lifting and lowering the tip, by tilting it back and forth, and by using either to top or bottom of the tip. You should use moderate to heavy torque with a snake pick to allow several pins to bind at the same time. This style of picking is faster than using a rake and it leaves as little evidence. Bristle Picks The spring steel bristles used on street cleaners make excellent tools for lock picking. The bristles have the right thickness and width, and they are easy to grind into the desired shape. The resulting tools are springy and strong. Keep reading to find out how to make tools that are less springy. The first step in making tools is to sand off any rust on the bristles. Course grit sand paper works fine as does a steel wool cleaning pad (not copper wool). If the edges or tip of the bristle are worn down, use a file to make them square. A torque wrench has a head and a handle (all do, not some). The head is usually 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch long and the handle varies from 2 to 4 inches long. The head and the handle are separated by a bend that is about 80 degrees. The head must be long enough to reach over any protrusions (such as a grip-proof collar) and firmly engage the plug. A long handle allows delicate control over the torque, but if it is too long, it will bump against the doorframe. The handle, head and bend angle can be made quite small if you want to make tools that are easy to conceal (for example, in a pen, flashlight, or belt buckle). Some torque wrenches have a 90 degree twist in the handle. The twist makes it easy to control the torque by controlling how far the handle has been deflected from its rest position. The handle acts as a spring which sets the torque. The disadvantage of this method of setting the torque is that you get less feedback about the rotation of the plug. To pick difficult locks you will need to learn how to apply a steady torque via a stiff handled torque wrench. The width of the head of a torque wrench determines how well it will fit the keyway. Locks with narrow keyways (e.g., desk locks) need torque wrenches with narrow heads. Before bending the bristle, file the head to the desired width. A general purpose wrench can be made by narrowing the tip (about 1/4 inch) of the head. The tip fits small keyways while the rest of the head is wide enough to grab a normal keyway. The hard part of making a torque wrench is bending the bristle without cracking it. To make the 90 degree handle twist, clamp the head of the bristle (about one inch) in a vise and use pliers to grasp the bristle about 3/8 of an inch above the vise. You can use another pair of pliers instead of a vise. Apply a 45 degree twist. Try to keep the axis of the twist lined up with the axis of the bristle. Now move the pliers back another 3/8 inch and apply the remaining 45 45 degrees. You will need to twist the bristle more than 90 degrees in order to set a permanent 90 degree twist. To make the 80 degree head bend, lift the bristle out of the vise by about 1/4 inch (so 3/4 inch is still in the vise). Place the shank of a screw driver against the bristle and bend the spring steel around it about 90 degrees. This should set a permanent 80 degree bend in the metal. Try to keep the axis of the bend perpendicular to the handle. The screwdriver shank ensures that the radius of curvature will not be too small. Any rounded object will work (e.g., drill bit, needle nose pliers, or a pen cap). If you have trouble with this method, try grasping the bristle with two pliers separated by about 1/2 inch and bend. This method produces a gentle curve that won't break the bristle. A grinding wheel will greatly speed the job of making a pick. It takes a bit of practice to learn how make smooth cuts with a grinding wheel, but it takes less time to practice and make two or three picks than it does to hand file a single pick. The first step is to cut the front angle of the pick. Use the front of the wheel to do this. Hold the bristle at 45 degrees to the wheel and move the bristle side to side as you grind away the metal. Grind slowly to avoid overheating the metal, which makes it brittle. If the metal changes color (to dark blue), you have overheated it, and you should grind away the colored portion. Next, cut the back angle of the tip using the corner of the wheel. Usually one corner is sharper than the other, and you should use that one. Hold the pick at the desired angle and slowly push it into the corner of the wheel. The side of the stone should cut the back angle. Be sure that the tip of the pick is supported. If the grinding wheel stage is not close enough to the wheel to support the tip, use needle nose pliers to hold the tip. The cut should pass though about 2/3 of the width of the bristle. If the tip came out well, continue. Otherwise break it off and try again. You can break the bristle by clamping it into a vise and bending it sharply. The corner of the wheel is also used to grind the tang of the pick. Put a scratch mark to indicate how far back the tang should go. The tang should be long enough to allow the tip to pass over the back pin of a seven pin lock. Cut the tang by making several smooth passes over the corner. Each pass starts at the tip and moves to the scratch mark. Try to remove less than a 1/16th of an inch of metal with each pass. I use two fingers to hold the bristle on the stage at the proper angle while my other hand pushes the handle of the pick to move the tang along the corner. Use whatever technique works best for you. Use a hand file to finish the pick. It should feel smooth if you run a finger nail over it. Any roughness will add noise to the feedback you want to get from the lock. The outer sheath of phone cable can be used as a handle for the pick. Remove three or four of the wires from a length of cable and push it over the pick. If the sheath won't stay in place, you can put some epoxy on the handle before pushing the sheath over it. An alternative to making tools out of street cleaner bristles is to make them out of nails and bicycle spokes. These materials are easily accessible and when they are heat treated, they will be stronger than tools made from bristles. Torque Wrenches A strong torque wrench can be constructed from an 8-penny nail (about .1 inch diameter). First heat up the point with a propane torch until it glows red, slowly remove it from the flame, and let it air cool; this softens it. The burner of a gas stove can be used instead of a torch. Grind it down into the shape of a skinny screwdriver blade and bend it to about 80 degrees. The bend should be less than a right angle because some lock faces are recessed behind a plate (called an escutcheon) and you want the head of the wrench to be able to reach about half an inch into the plug. Temper (harden) the torque wrench by heating to bright orange and dunking it into ice water. You will wind up with a virtually indestructible bent screwdriver that will last for years under brutal use. Bicycle spokes make excellent picks. Bend one to the shape you want and file the sides of the business end flat such that it's strong in the vertical and flexy in the horizontal direction. Try a righ t-angle hunk about an inch long for a handle. For smaller picks, which you need for those really tiny keyways, find any large-diameter spring and unbend it. If you're careful you don't have to play any metallurgical games. For perfectly serviceable key blanks that you can't otherwise find at the store, use the metal strap they wrap around bricks for shipping. It's wonderfully handy stuff for just about anything you want to manufacture. To get around side wards in the keyway, you can bend the strap lengthwise by clamping it in a vice and tapping on the protruding part to bend the piece to the required angle. Brick strap is very hard. It can ruin a grinding wheel or key cutting machine. A hand file is the recommended tool for milling brick strap. That's about it for lock picking. Its an important talent to have, especially for espionage/sabotage. If this explanation didnt suffice your quest for knowledge, there are various premade tools and manuals available through mail-order or in a "Spy" store near you. TAPPING A FONE LINE Equipment Needed First thing you need is an audio tape recorder. What you will be recording, whether it be voice or data, will be in an analog audio format. Most references will be towards voice recording, but it is also possible to data record. Most standard cassette recorders will work just fine. However, you are limited to 1 hour recording time per side. This can present a problem in some situations. A reel to reel can also be used. The limitations here are size and availability of A.C. Also, some reel to reels lack a remote jack that will be used to start and stop the recorder while the line is being used. This may not present a problem. The next item you need, oddly enough, is sold by Radio Shack under the name "Telephone recording control" part # 43-236. Connecting the Parts The Telephone recording control (TRC) has 3 wires coming out of it. 1.) Telco wire with modular jack. Cut this and replace with alligator clips. 2.) Audio wire with miniature phone jack (not telephone). This plugs into the microphone level input jack of the tape recorder. 3.) Audio wire with sub miniature phone jack. This plugs into the "REM" or remote control jack of the tape recorder. Now all you need to do is find the telephone line, connect the alligator clips, turn the recorder on, and come back later. Whenever the line goes off hook, the recorder starts. It's that simple. Why is recording important? Recording of evidence against communists, recording information, and recording important personal info about the enemy. BUGS The government often uses bugs, or electronic sound surveillance devices to spy on extremist groups, and use the evidence they get against them. They also use them to intercept plans and foil them. It is extremely important to search for these devices... UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES DO YOU DESTROY THEM!!! If you destroy it, the government/enemy will just find a way of putting a new one in. You must fix it so the person on the other end of the line still thinks he is listening to something... some ideas are: - Keep it where it is, just be careful what you say. - Leaving it in an unclassified meeting room of a business. - Putting it in a closed environment with a taped conversation of you talking about fake plans and information. - Leave it at an airport/bus station bathroom. But how do you scan for bugs? Room bugs are miniature radio stations. As such, anyone can tune them in. This rarely happens, though, because the range is limited and the frequency is known only to the person who placed the bug. In practice, most bugs transmit by frequency modulation, on or near the standard FM broadcast band (88 to 108 MHz). There is a toy called Mr. Microphone that is, in effect, a bug shaped like a large hand- held microphone. The user speaks into the microphone, and others may hear his voice on their FM radios. Clandestine bugs work similarly but are more likely to transmit just off either end of the FM band -- from 86 to 88 MHz (which infringes on a band allocated to television channels 5 and 6) or 108 to 110 MHz. In that way, the chance of accidental interception or of someone complaining to the FCC is less. The Watergate bugs was to have transmitted at 110 MHz. You can check for bugs using a FM radio. Turn the tuner to the extreme left side of the dial, as far as it will go, and turn the volume up. Although 88 MHz is the lowest frequency marked, most receivers have enough "overcoverage" to pick up 87 or 86 MHz. No FM stations are assigned below 88 MHz, so anything you may hear there is suspicious. Slowly move the dial to the right until you come to the first commercial FM station. Sweep over the FM band proper, and then check the overcoverage region above 108 MHz. Any bug you hear will be in your immediate neighborhood: typical transmitters use a few milliwatts of power and have a range of a few hundred yards. If you suspect the bug is in a nearby room, have someone talk or play music while you scan. A few bugs can be picked up only with special shortwave receivers. The frequencies from 48 to 50 MHz and 72 to 75 MHz are sometimes used. Several shortwave operators have reported conversations that seem to be from room bugs at 167.485 -- an FBI frequency. If you really want to get back at the person at the other end of the bug you might want to consider building a blast box. All a blast box is, is a really cheap amplifier, (around 5 watts or so) connected in place of the microphone on the transmitting device/bug. If you cant figure out how to do that, you might just place the bug in a massive amplifier at a music concert, and you'll have basically the same effect. You'll not only blast a hole in the eardrum of the listener, but you'll teach snooping government agents a lesson that they wont soon forget. HI-TECH BUG DETECTION For high technology bugs, the radio trick wont work. You'll need to either buy or build a high class detector. If you wish to build one, follow these directions... What you will need for your bug-detector: (the numbers in brackets is a reference number which matches the number in parentheses on this list.) (1) 1n34a crystal diode (2) 2 2n107 audio transistors (ge-2 or equivalent) (3) 3k ohm variable resistor (4) 560 ohm 1/2 watt resistor (5) 15k ohm variable resistor (6) 500 ohm variable resistor (7) .002 Uf capacitor (8) 1.5 Volt aa battery (9) aa battery holder (10) 0-300 microammeter (lafayette 99-g-5028 or equivalent) (11) 10 millihenry choke (ohmite z-50) (12) single-pole single-throw (spst) toggle switch (13) project box (radio shack) (14) antenna (either from an old transistor radio or a stiff piece of wire will also work) (15) 2000 ohm headset (or a mini- ature earphone like most tv and radios use) These parts can be purchased from Radio Shack or any other electronics store for less than $20. This is a very good high-gain meter-type bug detector. It has a crystal diode with 2 amplification stages to boost the power of the meter. This produces a broad-band, battery-powered, receiver that can sense radio-frequency transmitters up to a mile away. Unfortunately, it will also pick up a commercial am or fm station up to 3 miles away.... Bug detector schematics (these may seem complicated, but if you are building the device, you'll understand what they are showing):   (*)-----+------\<---+------+----\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \-/ ( /  \ \ v )  \ --- \  ( / ^^^ \  ) --> \ \ \ \ \ / \ \ \ \ \ \-/ \ \-/ \ \ v \ v ----+ \ \  \  \ \ \-/ \ v \ \  \ \ \ --------------------------------------- \ /----\ \ ( /--)-----------\ --->>b<< \ ( \/ ) \ \ ------(---\ ) \ \ ( \\ ) ----+---\ ( <--)-----\ \ \  \----/ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ / \  \-/ \ \ v / \  \ \ / \ \ \ \ \ >>a<< \ \ \ --------------------------------------- \ \  [8&9] \ ____ <-><+> \ / \ ---------() ()-----\ \---->>c<< \  >>a<<--------\/\/\/\/\----->>c<< ---------------->>d<< \  /---\-----\ ( \ ) ( \-\ ) >>c<<----(---\ \-----)----\ ( \-->-\ ) \ ( ) \ \---------/ \  \-/ v  >>b<<-------\/\/\/\/\--- ^ \ \ ------------>>d<<  >>d<<-------/\/\/\/\/-- ^ \ \ CAR TRACKER Another useful "bug"-type tool is a device known as a "bumpbeeper." It attaches to the under side of a car with magnets and then sends out a signal that can be heard on a radio. This enables you to be able to track the enemy's automobiles and location.

At one point, they were prosecuted by the federal government for attempted murder of communists. The key prosecution witness was a man named Jerry Brooks. Brooks claimed that Robert DePugh (leader of the Minutemen) had handed him a vial of strychnine and a $99 Greyhound Bus ticket around the country, and was told to kill as many communists as he could. When asked to respond afterward by a reporter, DePugh replied that, like much of what Brooks testified to, there was a glimmer of truth in this. Brooks had allegedly been given the $99 ticket, but ordered to go around the country pretending to be a possible recruit for various communist organizations. He would get inside the various organizations offices and take note of what they looked like, and any peculiarities about them. Then, as Robert DePugh described it, "We were going to wait quite a little while, so they would no longer associate it with his visit and then write to them in such a manner they would think for sure that recently someone had been inside their office. You know, like for example, we were going to write to Elizabeth Gurley Flynn [American Communist Party chairman at that time] and tell her, 'Why don't you wash the windows in your office? They're so dirty we can hardly see through our telescopic lens.'" According to notes taken at a later Minutemen training session, "We must win through Psychological Warfare." The notes mention such ideas as: * Sending boxed scorpions to left-wing radio announcers. * Telephone Harassment (Look up a local communist party chapter, and start prank calling, and hate calling.) * Physical Harassment : Find a communist's house, go there late at night, and shine a few lights in the windows. * Mail Harassment (sending bloody letters, violent letters, tampering with their mail, burning their mail, etc.) * Blackmail and Bribery * Burglarize and Vandalize a communists house. For instance: Use hydroflouric acid on his windows. Then, when the window is nice and brittle, you can literally punch out a section of the window without setting off an alarm. From there, you can steal and pillage to your heart's desire. Knocking on the door, and nailing him with paintballs when he comes to the door, and subsequently paintballing his house. Egg his car, his house, and whatever else you like. Paint his house red. Nail a Declaration of Independence, or a Constitution to his door. Burn a stake/cross/hammer&sickle on his lawn. Take target practice on his front door. Stalk him, and chase him down. * Buy things with stolen credit card #'s and send them to his house. - ENCRYPTION/CRYPTOGRAPHY - Cryptography (secret codes) are essential for security. The basic rule of security for right-wing militant groups is summed up in the statement "One of the set rules of Guerilla Warfare is don't operate with a set pattern or plan." However, for definite agendas, there are certain precautions that must be taken with ALL documents. For electronic material, PGP or another cipher key program must be used. For written documents, ciphers are more difficult to do, but they can also be more imaginative and creative. The Number Code Out of the various codes one can make, a number code is easiest. The simplest number cipher is simply to assign a certain letter as one, and keep numbering up. So, for example.... A = 5 B = 6 C = 7 D = 8 E = 9 F = 10 G = 11 H = 12 I = 13 J = 14 K = 15 L = 16 M = 17 N = 18 O = 19 P = 20 Q = 21 R = 22 S = 23 T = 24 U = 25 V = 26 W = 1 X = 2 Y = 3 Z = 4 So if you wanted to say, "Minuteman was here", you would write: 17-13-18-25-24-9-17-5-18 1-5-23 12-9-22-9. The problem with a code like this is that an experienced cryptographer by a simple combination of trial and error and analysis of sentence structure can determine very close to the exact code. A better code is a more original, less standardized code. The first example of this would be a Freemason type code. A „ B „ C \ J / N „ O „ P \ W / ŸŸ‰ŸŸŸ‰ŸŸ \ / ˜ „ ˜ „ ˜ \˜ / D „ E „ F \/ ŸŸŸ‰ŸŸŸ‰ŸŸŸ \/ ŸŸ‰ŸŸŸ‰ŸŸ K /\ L Q „ R „ S X˜ /\ ˜Y G „ H „ I / \ ˜ „ ˜ „ ˜ /˜ \ / M \ ŸŸŸ‰ŸŸŸ‰ŸŸŸ / Z \ T „ U „ V ˜ „ ˜ „ ˜ For that same message, "Minuteman was here", you would write: /\ ŽŸŸŸ „ ŽŸŸŸø ŸŸŸø ŽŸŸŸø /\ „ „ / \ „ ˜ „ „ ˜ „ ˜ „ „ „ / \ „ ˜ „ / \ „ ŸŸŸ „ „ „ ¿ŸŸŸ / \ ŸŸŸ ŸŸŸ \ / „ ŽŸŸŸ \˜ / „ „ ˜ \/ ŸŸŸ ¿ŸŸŸ ŽŸŸŸø ŽŸŸŸø ŽŸŸŸø ŽŸŸŸø „ „ „ „ „ ˜ „ „ „ „ „ ¿ŸŸŸ ¿ŸŸŸ ¿ŸŸŸ However, the most effective cipher by far is a cipher that uses a renaming type motif. That being, certain phrases and certain words mean exact things. This method eliminates much of the possibility of a cryptographer doing anything but blindly guessing what the message you send might mean. For instance John = Minuteman Ivan = Polaris "contact" = connect 5:00 PM = High Noon Someone wants to tell someone else that Minuteman will contact Polaris at 5:00 PM. "John will connect Ivan at High Noon". If you dont know the code, its easy to see how little one can derive from such a statement. What happens if you dont use encryption? Federal agents use whatever documents they can find from your group to implicate and arrest members of it for illegal acts that they probably didnt commit, or at least with a just cause. Remember, without any evidence and with a good lawyer, the government will have a much harder time trying to stop you. You must also, however, protect your normal mail, with certain techniques to insure absolute security. If not, the communists may use the very same harassment/espionage tactics against you. SEALS Wax seals are not a guarantee against unauthorized opening of a letter. According to the CIA Flaps and Seals Manual (available from Paladin Press, Boulder CO), there is a way to remove and replace seals. First the opener takes a plaster of Paris cast of the seal. This is set aside to harden. The wax is gently heated with an infrared lamp. When soft, it is rolled into a ball and set aside. The flap of the envelope is steamed open, and the letter is taken out and photocopied. After the envelope's contents are replaced and the flap resealed, the same wax is used to recreate the seal. It is heated till pliable and pressed back into shape with the plaster of paris mold. One type of seal is secure, even according to the CIA manual quoted before: one made of two or more colors of wax melted together. The colors inevitably come out different on the second secret pressing. But a color Polaroid of the seal must be sent under separate cover so that the recipient can compare it with the seal on the message letter. None of the other common seals are reliable against unauthorized opening, assuming that knowledgeable letter-openers may want to open your mail. Scotch tape across the flap of an envelope comes off cleanly with carbon tetrachloride (applied wiht a brush or hypodermic needle). If you suspect that someone is opening your mail, the manual suggests sending yourself a letter containing a sheet of carbon or wax paper. The heat and mechanical treatment of the letter opening will smudge the carbon and melt the wax. Otherwise, you have to examine letters carefully to detect prior opening. A torn flap, smudging of the flap glue, flattened ridges in the flap, or concave (from the back) curling due to steaming are evidence of opening. A more sophisticated test requires steaming part of the envelope near the flap for fifteen seconds. Then place the envelope under an ultraviolet lamp. If there is a difference in fluorescence between the steamed and unsteamed part of the envelope, then the envelope paper is suitable for the test. If so, examine the unsteamed part of the flap under the ultraviolet lamp. If it shows a different fluorescence than the other unsteamed parts of the envelope, it indicates that the flap may have been previously steamed. The ultraviolet lamp is also useful in detecting invisible writing. An effective ultraviolet ink need not fluoresce brightly, as the silicate stamp inks do. Any substance that changes the fluorescence of paper in ultraviolet light yet is invisible in ordinary light will work. Prisoners have used human urine as ink. Salt water, vinegar, milk, fruit juices, saliva, and water solutions of soap or drugs also work, with varying degrees of legibility. IV. The Tools and Tactics of the Militants "... The true guerrila is never beaten. He will never negotiate away his freedom. He will never compromise his ideas. He will never surrender. History offers many examples of far larger and better equipped armies that were finally defeated by guerrillas. They can fight on for years, even generations. Guerrilla bands can fight in the cities country, forests, swamps, deserts, or mountains. They are everywhere and yet nowhere. They strike without warning and vanish without a trace. They take away with them the arms, food, and ammunition they will need to fight again another day. The guerrilla is a grim fighter and a terrible foe. His strength is in his heart--in his love for his country--in his hatred of the enemy. His chief weapons are stealth, cunning, endurance, and most of all, an intense belief in the righteousness of his own cause. He will fight to the death with a fury that makes his enemies cower before him." From "Principles of Guerrilla Warfare," copyright 1961, Robert B. Depugh -- a booklet "The Pen is mightier than the Sword. The Court is mightier than the Pen. The Sword is mightier than the Court." - Rey Barry - "Walk softly, and carry a big stick." - Theodore Roosevelt - This is probably the section half of those reading this manual have been waiting for: the firearms. I would stress to those reading this my earlier warning that the information provided is for INSTRUCTION ONLY. Should you do this, its your own fault what happens. I would also stress that in several cases, action can be taken without involving serious violence. Please explore all alternatives before shooting anyone. - GUNS AND RELATED WEAPONS - There are several important things you must know about guns (being their types, specifications, and how to use them.) However, there is other information that is perhaps even more important. First of all, you need to know what guns to buy for who. Although slightly outdated, the April 1, 1964 issue of "On Target" has some interesting suggestions for firearms: Adult Males: 30-06 Garands, 7.62 NATO FNs, 30-06 bolt-action Springfields or Enfields, high-caliber sporting rifles as desired, 12-gauge double barrel, pump or semi-automatic shotguns. Adult Females: Winchester Model 100 in .308 caliber, Remington Model 742 in 30-06 caliber of 30-caliber military carbines. Older Children: Sporting rifles in 6mm., .243, .270, .222 calibers. Younger Children: Semi-automatic .22 rifles. I also suggest newer productions, namely the TEC-DC9, the CAR-15, the AR-15, and any Kalishnikov rifles (or their Chinese variants) that are available. Necessary additions to these weapons would be silencers, clips, laser-targeting scopes, night-vision scopes, and/or shoulder supports. In addition to buying guns, one can also produce makeshift guns if one knows how they work. HOMEMADE STUN GUNS Materials --------- - 1 camera flash (rip this out of a cheap camera or buy a seperate one, get the flashes that run off of a couple of double A's) - 1 hobby box (large enough to fit your disassembled flash in, get one WITHOUT a metal base plate!) - 2 stainless steel nails - 2 1.3 volt AA batteries (for the flash) - 1 soldering iron and solder - 1 tube of super glue - 1 pair of wire cutters 1.) First of all disconnect any batteries from your camera flash. 2.) Take apart the camera flash and chuck out all the excess plastic container. 3.) Locate the flash tube (the bit that flashes, duh!), and cut the two wire that lead to it. 4.) Taking these two wires and solder each one to a seperate nail. 5.) Now prepare your hobby box buy cutting two holes large enough to slide the point of a nail through (the nails should be about .5 cm apart), and cut a whole for the switch that was hooked up to the flash originally. Super glue all the parts in place. Carefully connect up your batteries (the battery compartment should be still intact if you didn't butcher the camera flash too much when you were taking it apart). Ensure there are no exposed wires touching each other. The finished hobby box should look like this: ŽŸŸŸŸŸŸŸŸŸŸŸŸŸŸŸø „ „ <====„ ÐÐ „ <====„ „ <==== - nails „ „ ŽŸŸŸø - hobby box ¿ŸŸŸŸŸŸŸŸŸŸŸŸŸŸŸ ÐÐ - switch 5.) Screw on the base plate and you're ready. To use it just flick on the switch and you should hear a high pitch squeal starting to get louder. Turn the switch off (the longer you leave it on the greater the shock will be) and holding the box touch someones skin with the tips of both the nails. HOW TO MAKE A PSEUDO-GUN To do this, you first need to know how a gun works. A gun is simply a bullet, in a type of vise, that has a sharp object shoved up its back very quickly, and explodes. So basically, to build a pseudo- gun, take a vice type device, and make it an easy close/open vise operation (like a gun hammer). Then, attach a mechanism that allows the operator to swing a nail, or other sharp object, into the back of the bullet quickly. And there, you've got a gun! SILENCERS " The advantages of a gun that makes no noise when fired are obvious. In underground warfare the availability of such weapons would be invaluable to individuals or small combat teams forced to operate against a superior enemy force... The time may come when citizens may profit from a knowledge of how to construct such devices... Telescopic sights are often helpful. Some companies make mounting rings that hold the telescopic sight well above the barrel of the rifle. This may be sufficient for a silencer that is about two and one-half inches in diameter. Special scope mounts may be purchased or constructed for silencers having a larger diameter..." - From Minutemen pamphlet on how to build your own gun silencer. HOW TO MAKE A ONE-USE SILENCER This is a simple way to make a one use silencer. It only works once, for obvious reasons, as you will see. Take an empty 12 ounce plastic soft drink container, and tape if firmly to the end of the gun/pistol/ rifle. Then, go ahead and shoot! Keep in mind, this is not perfect, and it only works once, because once the bottle has a hole in it, it no longer will work. HOW TO MAKE A MULTI-USE SILENCER Silencers made for multi-use for improvised small arms weapons can be made from steel gas or water pipe and fittings. Material Required: Grenade Container Steel pipe nipple, 6 in. (15 cm) long - (see Graph 1 for diameter) 2 steel pipe couplings - (see Graph 2 for dimensions) Cotton cloth - (see Graph 2) Drill Absorbent cotton Procedure: 1.) Drill hole in grenade container at both ends to fit outside diameter of pipe nipple. (see Graph 1) -> /----------------------\ / | | 2.75 in | ) ( <-holes dia. \ | | -> \-----------------------/ |-----------------------| 5 in. 2.) Drill four rows of holes in pipe nipple. Use Graph 1 for diameter and location of holes. 6 in. |-----------------------------------| _____________________________________ ___ | O O O O O O O O O O O O O O O O O | | C (nom. dia.) ------------------------------------- (size of hole) | \ / (space between) B (dia.) A 3.) Thread one of the pipe couplings on the drilled pipe nipple. 4.) Cut coupling length to allow barrel of weapon to thread fully into low signature system. Barrel should butt against end of the drilled pipe nipple. 5.) Separate the top half of the grenade container from the bottom half. 6.) Insert the pipe nipple in the drilled hole at the base of the bottom half of the container. Pack the absorbent cotton inside the container and around the pipe nipple. 7.) Pack the absorbent cotton in top half of grenade container leaving a hole in center. Assemble container to the bottom half. 8.) Thread the other coupling onto the pipe nipple. Note: A longer container and pipe nipple, with same "A" and "B" dimensions as those given, will furthur reduce the signature of the system. How to use: 1.) Thread the silencer device on the selected weapon securely. 2.) Place the proper cotton wad size into the muzzle end of the system (see Graph 2) 3.) Load weapon 4.)

Here they are: - RPG's (Rocket Propelled Grenades) - Self-Propelled Miniguns - Mortars - Anti-Vehicle Weapons and mines - If you can get your hands on them, AAA guns and anti-aircraft missiles Improvised Artillery: There is a simple way to make a small artillery device for home defense use. The easiest way to build it is described, and anyone with any knowledge of weaponry can make obvious substitutions if necessary. Take a thick and mediumly wide metal pipe. Take a metal cap, drill a hole in it, and weld it on to one side of the metal pipe. Now, take a firecracker (an M-80, or an M-100), and carefully drop it in the bottom of the pipe, putting the fuse through the hole in the cap. Now, place some tissue paper/toilet paper in the pipe. Now, pour (NOT STUFF) some BB's, or metal pellets into the pipe. Stuff some more toilet paper into the pipe. Now pour some more bb's/pellets, and another layer of toilet paper. Basically, now just prop this up against a tree or something, and you'll have a working artillery piece/mortar that can be very deadly if accurately aimed. To make this weapon much more deadly, take heavy rocks, or the like, and place them in the pipe. You can substitute black powder/gun powder/blasting powder and a fuse for the firecracker. The firecracker just makes the business easier for the slow at intellect. Another type of artillery are Model Shrapnel Rockets. Basically, fill the cone and the very upper portion of the rocket with gunpowder/black powder/etc. Lead a fuse (judge the length of the fuse based on the range to target) from the cone to the engine. Then pack the rest of the middle and inside of the rocket with lightweight materials like shards of glass, and fiberglass, nails, and whatnot. Basically, just fire the rocket slightly above your target. When it explodes, the "shrapnel" on the inside will shoot out and maim/kill your target. Other types of model rockets can also be extremely useful. Experimenting with them firsthand is the best solution, because it will enable you to determine what kind and what design is best for your uses. Another home-design type artillery device is a sprinkler hooked up to a pump-bucket filled with a gasoline/gunpowder/blackpowder mix. Then, start the pump, and have the sprinkler start going on the target area... when the bucket is nearly empty, strike a match and throw it. You'll a homemade HADES type weapon. Basically, the air around the sprinkler, and everything touched by the spray will go up like spontaneous combustion. FLARES If you would like to make a flare, there are several ways. But the most original and interesting way would be the following: Take an Erienmeyer flask (the kind with the fat bottoms and thinly necked tops), and dump some Antimony powder at the bottom. Then, while holding your nose, funnel some Chlorine Gas into the flask. FOOM! You'll have a flare gun for a few minutes. The reaction is quick and bright. The flask also gets warm, so be careful. - BOMBS AND PARAFANALIA - The Minuteman journal "On Target" continually stresses that if you are going to build bombs, build simple, easy to test and construct ones. In fact, in notes from one training session, it reads "Black Powder is the best. Put it in a 2" pipe, drill a hole in it, insert fuse, light the fuse, throw it, and run." How do you make Black Powder? The recipe followed directly afterward. Black Powder Place 5 pints of alcohol in a bucket. In another bucket, put 3 cups of granulated potassium nitrate, 2 cups powdered wood charcoal, and 1/2 cup of powdered sulfur (can be obtained from match heads) into the bucket. Add 1 cup of water and stir well with a wooden stick. Place the bucket on a heat source and add 2 more cups of water and wait for it to bubble but don't let it boil. Remove the bucket from the heat and pour it into the alcohol while stirring well. Let the alcohol stand for about 5 minutes. Strain the liquid through cheesecloth to remove the powder. Wrap the cloth around the powder and squeeze out the excess liquid. Place a piece of screen on top of a bucket. Place a workable amount of black powder (That black muddy looking stuff) on the screen and begin to work it through. Spread the end result on a piece of newspaper and let it dry in the sunlight. The notes go on to describe another explosive that should be used under doors or entrances to sensitive rooms/buildings, called Ammonium Tri Iodide. To make it: Mix solid Nitric Iodine (or take the liquid form, and evaporate the liquid off) with household ammonia. Wait overnight and pour off the liquid. You will be left with a muddy substance. Let it dry untill it hardens up. To use it, put it in a bottle or can and just drop it or throw it at something. Other types of powders and the such that are useful to know how to make: Gun Powder: 1.) Pour 10ml of both Sulfuric and Nitric acid in a beaker. 2.) Add come Cotton with the mixture of th acids. 3.) Let it dry and crumble it into powder. Easy Gun Powder: 1.) Put 100 grams of Potassium nitrate in beaker. 2.) Put 100 grams of Sulfur in beaker. 3.) Put 100 grams of charcoal in beaker. Flash Powder (Another useful ingredient for homemade flares): 1.) Add 1 ounce of Sulfur in beaker. 2.) Add 2 ounces of Sodium chlorate in beaker. 3.) Add 1 ounce of 400 mesh aluminum powder in beaker. Greek Fire (A popular home explosive): 1.) Add 100 grams of Potassium Nitrate in Beaker. 2.) Add 100 grams of Charcoal in beaker. 3.) Add 50 grams of Sulfur in beaker. 4.) Add 50 grams of Sugar in beaker. Thermite (An extremely useful diversion weapon, as well as for destructive purposes): 1.) Ground aluminum mesh into a powder. 2.) Mix the powder carefully into an amount of Iron (III) Oxide. 3.) When you wish to ignite the reaction, take a strip of Magnesium (other heat sources can be used, but this works best), and quickly place it in the mixture (back off very quickly). 4.) The reaction is quick, explosive, and dangerous. You must be very careful how you place the ignition source, and a fuse type design works best. The reaction is so hot that the iron turns molten. Other bombs suggested by these notes, and other sources: Homemade Grenades During the Winter, or in a wet area, you can use a piece of a simple chemical that can be procured from any chemical supply store for a hand grenade. Take a piece of potassium or rubydium (potassium is more stable, and easier to handle), and just throw it at water surrounding your target. You will be more than suprised at what a small piece of chemical can do. BOOM! Carbide Bomb This is EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. Exercise extreme caution.... Obtain some calcium carbide. This stuff can be found at nearly any hardware store. Take a few pieces of this stuff (it looks like gravel) and put it in a glass jar with some water. Cover the jar tightly. The carbide will react with the water to produce acetylene carbonate which is similar to the gas used in cutting torches. Eventually the glass with explode from internal pressure. If you leave a burning rag nearby, you will get a nice fireball. Exhaust Bomb (for a car) Install a spark plug into the last four or five inches of the tail pipe by drilling a hole that the plug can screw into easily. Attach a wire (this is regular insulated wire) to one side of the switch and to the spark plug. The other side of the switch is attached to the positive terminal on the battery. With the car running, simply hit the switch and watch the flames. The Hearts and Diamonds Bomb, A.K.A. the Pipe Bomb Take an old-style, non-laminated hearts or diamonds playing card, and stick in in a pvc or metal pipe. Glug some glycerine hand lotion in it, and add a few shakes of potassium permanganate (snake-bite medical formula in most medical kits). Let it sit and absorb for a few hours, and then place it upon a hot radiator, or flame. The Mayonnaise Bomb Take an empty mayonnaise jar, and pour a few drops of gasoline in it. Roll the jar around to create a thin layer of gasoline inside the jar. Add a few shakes of potassium permanganate (snakebite formula), and cap the jar. Now, leave it out in the sun for a few hours to evaporate the gas into the jar. Then, throw the jar at something. Turn Signal Bomb (for a car) Detach the plastic running light (or turn signal) cover on someones car. Break the bulb. Test the bulb with a voltage meter to make sure it is not live. Pack the bulb with Flash Paper and replace the cover. When the person starts his car or goes to turn, a quick burst of flame will pop out of the back of his car making him think it is on fire. Piss Bomb (Uric Acid Explosive) MATERIALS --------- - 1 cup concentrated solution of uric acid (C5 H4 N4 O3) - 1/3 cup of nitric acid - 4 heat-resistant glass containers - 4 filters (coffee filters will do) Filter the concentrated solution of uric acid through a filter to remove impurities. Slowly add 1/3 cup of nitric acid to the solution and let the mixture stand for 1 hour. Filter again as before. This time the Urea Nitrate crystals will collect on the filter. Wash the crystals by pouring water over them while they are in the filter. Remove the crystals from the filter and allow 16 hours for them to dry. This explosive will need a blasting cap to detonate, or a suitable substitute. HEAVY EXPLOSIVES This next section may seem confusing at first. However, you do not need to be a chemist to be able to understand and duplicate what is being shown here. It is important for a militiaman to be able to make or have a source to make heavy explosives because of the opportunities this lends you. You've all read about the manure bomb that the fellows in Oklahoma used. Well, here's a way to get the Potassium Nitrate direct from normal soil, instead of having to buy it. Potassium Nitrate The following recipe was found in the Improvised Munitions Handbook published by the Department of the Army. Potassium nitrate can be extracted from many natural sources (soil) and can be used to make nitric acid, black powder, and many pyrotechnics. The yield ranges from 1% to 10% by weight, depending on the fertility of the soil. Materials Source --------- ------ Nitrate bearing earth or other Soil contaying decaying animal material, about 3-1/2 gallons. or vegetable matter. Fine wood ashes, 1/2 cup. Totally burned wood products. 5 gallon bucket 2 pieces of finely woven cloth, each slightly larger than the bottom of the bucket. Shallow pan or dish at least as large as bottom of bucket. Shallow heat resistant container ceramic or metal. Water, 1-3/4 gallons. Awl, knife screwdriver or other hole producing instrument. Alcohol (ethyl or isopropyl) 1 gallon Heat source, fire, stove. paper Tape Procedure --------- 1.) Punch holes in the bottom of the bucket so that the entire surface is covered with them. 2.) Place cloth flat on bottom of bucket. Spread ashes on cloth. Place second piece of cloth on top of ashes 3.) Fill bucket with earth. 4.) Place bucket over shallow container. Support bucket with sticks if necessary. 5.) Boil water and pour it over earth in bucket a little at a time. Allow water to run through holes in bucket into shallow container. Be sure water runs through all of the earth. Allow liquid to cool and settle for 1 to 2 hours. 6.) Carefully drain liquid into heat resistant container. Discard sludge at bottom of shallow container. 7.) Boil mixture over hot fire for at least 2 hours. Small grains of salt will appear in the solution. Scoop these out as they form and discard. 8.) When liquid has boiled down to about half of its original volume, remove from fire and let sit. After half hour add an equal volume of alcohol. 9.) Make an improvised strainer out of paper tape and bucket. Tape paper so that it covers the top of a clean bucket. 10.) Pour mixture through paper strainer. Small white salt crystals will collect on top of it. These are potassium nitrate. 11.) To purify the potassium nitrate, re-dissolve the dry crystals in the smallest amount possible of boiled water (make sure they all dissolve). Remove any salt crystals that appear (step 7) pour through an improvised filter made of several pieces of paper and evaporate or gently heat solution to dryness. 12.) Spread crystals on plat surface and allow to dry. The potassium nitrate crystals are now ready to use. This method was tested, and it is effective. Large quantities (1 to 2 pounds) of potassium nitrate can be obtained this way. R.D.X. RDX can be produced by the method given below. It is much easier to make in the home than all other high explosives, with the possible exception of ammonium nitrate. MATERIALS --------- - hexamine or methenamine - - 1000 ml beaker - - ice bath - - glass stirring rod - - thermometer - - funnel - - filter paper - - distilled water - - ammonium nitrate - - nitric acid (550 ml) - - blue litmus paper - - small ice bath - 1.) Place the beaker in the ice bath, and carefully pour 550 ml of concentrated nitric acid into the beaker. 2.) When the acid has cooled to below 20¯, add small amounts of the crushed fuel tablets to the beaker. The temperature will rise, and it must be kept below 30¯, or dire consequences could result. Stir the mixture. 3.) Drop the temperature below zero degrees celsius, either by adding more ice and salt to the old ice bath, or by creating a new ice bath. Continue stirring the mixture, keeping the temperature below zero for twenty minutes. 4.) Pour the mixture into 1 liter of crushed ice. Shake and stir the mixture, and allow it to melt. Once it has melted, filter out the crystals, and dispose of the corrosive liquid. 5.) Place the crystals into one half a liter of boiling distilled water. Filter the crystals, and test them with the blue litmus paper. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until the litmus paper remains blue. This will make the crystals more stable and safe. 6.) Store the crystals wet until ready for use. Allow them to dry completely before using them. R.D.X. is not stable enough to use alone as an explosive. A composition C-1 can be made to desensitize the explosive by mixing the following ingredients. (measure by weight) Material Percent -------- ------- R.D.X. 88% mineral oil 11% lecithin 1% Knead these material together in a plastic bag. This is one way to desensitize it. There are other ways, but not always as simple. A neat extra thing to do to RDX is to create HMX, a mix of RDX and TNT; the ratio is 50/50, by weight. (Keep reading for the recipe for T.N.T.) It is not as sensitive as unadultered RDX and it is almost as powerful as straight RDX. By adding ammonium nitrate to the crystals of RDX produced in step 5, it is possible to desensitize the R.D.X. and increase its power, since ammonium nitrate is very insensitive and powerful. Sodium or potassium nitrate could also be added; a small quantity is sufficient to stabilize the RDX. Ammonium Nitrate There are two ways to procure Ammonium Nitrate: making it, or stealing it. You can usually swipe it from any construction site, and if you've got plenty of money to play with, just buy Instant Cold-Paks. A rather powerful priming charge must be used, or a booster charge must be added. The primer explodes, detonating the T.N.T., which detonates, sending a tremendous shockwave through the ammonium nitrate, detonating it. To make ammonium nitrate the hard way, follow these easy instructions: Ammonium Nitrate - Fuel Oil Solution, also known as ANFO solves one of the major problems with ammonium nitrate: its tendency to pick up water vapor from the air. This absorption results in the explosive failing to detonate when fired. This is less of a problem with ANFO because it consists of 94% (by weight) ammonium nitrate mixed with 6% fuel oil (kerosene). The kerosene helps keep the ammonium nitrate from absorbing moisture from the air. This mixture, like straight ammonium nitrate, is very insensitive to shock. It requires a very powerful shockwave to detonate it, and is not very effective in small quantities. Usually a booster charge, consisting of dynamite or a commercial cast charge, is used for reliable detonation. Some commercial ANFO explosives have a small amount of aluminum added, increasing the power and sensitivity. These forms can often be reliably initiated by a No. 8 blasting cap. These disadvantages are outweighed by two important advantages of ammonium nitrate explosives- cost, and safety. In industrial blasting these factors are much more important than in recreational activities, and this has contributed to the popularity of these explosives. If the explosive is initiated without confinement it not propagate well, and most of the ammonium nitrate will burn and scatter, rather than detonation as most other high explosives would. Ammonium nitrate explosives are much cheaper per pound than most other explosives, with the price per pound at about 1/10 that of dynamite. Straight ammonium nitrate can be transported to the blasting site without the extract expenses incurred when transporting high explosives. At the site, the ammonium nitrate, in the form of small pellets, or prills, can be mixed with the fuel oil just prior to blasting. If too much oil is added, the power of the mixture will decrease, because the extra oil will absorb some of the energy from the ammonium nitrate, and it tends to slow propagation. If commercial fertilizer is used to provide the ammonium nitrate, it must be crushed to be effective. This is because fertilizer grade ammonium nitrate is coated with a water resistant substance which helps keep moisture from decomposing the material. This material also keeps the fuel oil from soaking into the ammonium nitrate. If fertilizer grade material is poured into a vat of warm, liquified wax, the coating will be displaced by the wax, which can also serve as fuel for the ammonium nitrate. T.N.T. (Tri Nitro Toluene) T.N.T is simply, at the molecule level, a benzene ring with three nitrogens attached and the toluene characteristics. In industrial production TNT is made by a three step nitration process that is designed to conserve the nitric and sulfuric acids, so that the only resource consumed in quantity is the toluene. A person with limited funds, however, should probably opt for the less economical two step method. This process is performed by treating toluene with very strong (fuming) sulfuric acid. Then, the sulfated toluene is treated with very strong (fuming) nitric acid in an ice bath. Cold water is added to the solution, and the T.N.T. is filtered out. Potassium Chlorate (KClO3) Potassium chlorate itself cannot be made in the home, but it can be obtained from labs and chemical supply houses. It is moderately water soluble, and will explode if brought into contact with sulfuric acid. It is toxic and should not be brought into contact with organic matter, including human skin. If potassium chlorate is mixed with a small amount of vaseline, or other petroleum jelly, and a shockwave is passed through it, the material will detonate, however it is not very powerful, and it must be confined to explode it in this manner. The procedure for making such an explosive is outlined below: MATERIALS --------- - potassium chlorate - - zip-lock plastic bag - - wooden spoon - - petroleum jelly - - grinding bowl - - wooden bowl - 1.) Grind the potassium chlorate in the grinding bowl carefully and slowly, until the potassium chlorate is a very fine powder. The finer the powder, the faster it will detonate, but it will also decompose more quickly. 2.) Place the powder into the plastic bag. Put the petroleum jelly into the plastic bag, getting as little on the sides of the bag as possible, i.e. put the vaseline on the potassium chlorate powder. 3.) Close the bag, and knead the materials together until none of the potassium chlorate is dry powder that does not stick to the main glob. If necessary, add a bit more petroleum jelly to the bag. Napalm Well, most people know that the basic way to make napalm is: gasoline + soap + fire = Chaos. But for a more indepth look, keep reading. Take a bucket or a small bowl and fill it about 1/2 way with gasoline. Leave it out in the sun to heat up. Also, it is possible to use a double boiler and a hot water bath to heat it. Then take a bar of soap (depending on how much gas you used you will need more soap so have plenty) and using a knife with teeth scrape the soap into shreds and dump into the gas. after every bar of soap stir it slowly and keep adding soap until it becomes a thick sludge. Dont add too much or you'll either ruin it, or cause an explosion. Always make sure there is a little x-tra gasoline in it. However, do NOT touch it. It is highly corrosive. You can also simply take the hot gasoline, and place a piece of styrofoam in it. The styrofoam will burn up, and the gasoline will turn to napalm. CHEMICAL WEAPONS Chlorine Bomb Wrap some chlorine up in a paper towel and tie it up tight. Next, tape it high on the inside of a Mayonnaise Jar (See illus). Fill the bottom of the jar up (don't touch the paper!) with PineSol. Screw the top back on and place it on the ground. When ready, knock the jar over and run. It will explode, and release a lot of chlorine gas, which is poisonous, and if ingested, is deadly. A variant idea, is to do the same with a balloon instead of the Mayonnaise Jar. Just send a few balloons to a reputed communist leader, and either stretch em so they pop very soon after being delivered, or poke small holes in them. /========\ <- Lid | *| <- Chlorine | *| <- | | |'.'.'.'.| <- PineSol |.'.'.'.'| <- \________/ <- Tear Gas First, get some red pepper seeds, you can find them in a food store or in a nursery for plants. You will need 4 ounces of them. The next step is to grind them up in a blender or in a mortar. Put the seeds into a coffe percolator with 16 ounces of distilled alcohol and percolate for 1/2 hour. After the 1/2 hour is up, you remove the alcohol liquid and what you have left if a couple table spoons of red liquid. The red liquid is added to 1/2 pint of mineral oil. You can get mineral oil at any drug store. Once mixed, you have one nasty eye irritant and an effective chemical crowd deterrent. The way you use it is to put in a spray bottle and spray it at your enemy. You could use the top from a Windex bottle, cut the tube short enough and put it in a medicine bottle, to form a type of Mace tube. That way it is smaller. If you have a pump sprinkler, you can make a mass attack weapon. V. The Enemies of the Right Wing The following rendition of the Bill of Rights for a modern America was found anonymously over internet. "As we approach the 21st Century, it's time to bring the wording up to date showing what we are and who we are.

The public interest shall be determined by the Civil Service." The following is a question taken from the Combat Arms Survey given to Marines at 29 Palms in California: "I would fire upon U.S. citizens who refuse or resist confiscation of firearms banned by the U.S. Government" Further information can be found in Conservative Chronicle, Vol 9, No 44, Nov 2, 1994, page 11. "What became of liberal's devotion to privacy?" by Phyllis Schlafly. There are several groups that right wingers must take extreme caution around, and must be willing to act against. They are not listed in any specific order, but you can tell which are more virulent than others. To begin with, you must realize that the NRA description of federal agents as "jackbooted thugs" isnt so far off... ATF - Does anyone ever remember the creation of the ATF? Why? Because the ATF is nothing better than the Gestapo. It was designed to be used as a violent military squad against individuals who refuse to follow Big Brother into Armageddon. There is nothing wrong with shooting ATF agents. (Keep in mind, i'm not sanctioning violence, i'm stating personal opinion.) Have no regrets about this. They are responsible for the massacre at Waco, the killing of Randall Weaver's wife, and various other episodes. The ATF would better be called the KGB. If our founding fathers saw the ATF, they'd ask where their red coats were. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms has no business meddling in anything but officework. FBI - The Minutemen once suggested that the FBI be renamed the FIB, Federal Investigation Bureau. The FBI are very similar to the ATF, and cannot be trusted. They were also parts of the debacles involving the ATF, and are at least guilty by association. The F.B.I. was the agency also responsible at Waco, the Weaver case, and various other episodes. They are essentially a National Police Force, something that is fundamental to undermining a popular uprising or anti-government feeling. And they are certainly well described as "jackbooted thugs", as the NRA called it, and called it well. ATTU - These are individuals that are suspiciously hired by the Treasury Department (since when did political extremism be involved with the Treasury?) are there for the sole purpose of conducting espionage activities against right-wing groups and entrap people to convict in an unjust trial. Secret Service - There is but one thing to say. It is not only by coincidence that their initials are SS. They are currently protected a socialist/communist dictator who intends on extending the corrupting force of liberal politics on us. The Secret Service is meant to shoot anyone who may threaten that evil individual. Therefore, it is easy to see how they are the enemy. CPUSA - The communist party of the United States of America has not only been proved to be a blatantly subversive espionage ring, but it has been proved so by its own documents! The Yale Press, a notoriously liberal college printing group, even released a number of documents taken from CPUSA archives in Moscow directly indicating sabotage and espionage on the part of CPUSA members. These documents also indicate that much of the so-called "red paranoia" in the 50's and 60's was "EXTREMELY WELL FOUNDED." CIA - This agency is basically the GRU of the United States of America. The government has expressed public doubt at times that the CIA even really answers to them. Most believe that much of the info that the CIA collects, it keeps for its own uses. The CIA is a corrupt government institution that is literally independent from the normal corrupted bureaucracy. In times of strife, it could be very well used against the honest citizens of the United States. United Nations - The following was taken from a John Birch Society Pamphlet titled "A Dozen Good Reasons to Get Us Out of the United Nations" "More and more Americans are coming to the chilling realization that U.S. membership in the United Nations poses a very real threat to our survival as a free and independent nation. Here are some good reasons to be concerned: 1.) The UN's basic philosophy is both anti-American and pro-totalitarian. Our Declaration of Independence proclaims the 'self-evident' truth that 'men ... are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.' But, in its Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the UN ignores God's existence, implies that it grants rights, and then repeatedly claims power 'as provided by law' to cancel them out of existence. If any government can place restrictions on such fundamental rights as freedom of speech, the right to keep and bear arms, freedoms of the press, association movement, and religion, soon there will be no such freedoms. 2.) The UN was founded by Communists and CFR members whose common goal was a socialist world government. Sixteen key U.S. officials who shaped the policies leading to the creation of the UN were later exposed in sworn testimony as secret communists. These included Alger Hiss, chief planner of the 1945 founding conference, and the Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Harry Dexter White. The Soviet Union under Stalin and the entire CPUSA apparatus worked tirelessly to launch the UN. Since its beginning in 1921, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) has always worked for world government. The key CFR founder, Edward Mandell House, in his book, Philip Dru:Administrator, called for 'Socialism as dreamed of by Karl Marx...' The CFR was an early promoter of the UN, and 43 members of the U.S. delegation at the UN founding conference were or would become CFR members. 3.) The UN has always chosen socialist one-worlders for leaders. The Secretary-General at the UN founding conference was Soviet Spy Alger Hiss. He was followed as Secretary-General by Norwegian socialist Trygve Lie, Swedish socialist Dag Hammarskjold, Burmese Marxist U Thant, Austrian former Nazi Kurt Waldheim, Peruvian socialist Javier Perez deCuellar, and Egyptian Socialist Boutros Boutros-Ghali. Each has consistently used the full resources of the UN to promote Communist and socialist causes around the world. The Socialist International (which proudly traces its origins to the First International headed by Karl Marx) today claims tens of millions of members in 54 countries. At its 1962 Congress, it declared: 'The ultimate objective of the parties of the Socialist International is nothing less than world government... Membership of the United Nations must be made universal...' Almost all of the UN's 'independent' commissions for the last thirty years have been headed by members of the Socialist International. 4.) The UN seeks power to control the environment, population, children... the world. Both the 1972 UN Environmental Program and the 1992 UN Conference on Environment and Development laid plans to whip up widespread environmental concerns (some exaggerated, many completely fabricated). These concerns would then be used as justification for increasing UN authority on environmental issues. The statements and publications of these UN programs leave little doubt that their goal is a world government with the power to cancel national sovereignty, regulate economic activity, and control the human race -- all, of course, under the banner of 'protecting the environment.' In late 1994, UN planners meeting in Egypt approved a 20-year, $17 billion plan to 'stabilize' the world's population. The UN's goal is to reduce population selectively by encouraging abortion, sterilization, and controlled human breeding. The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child also claims power not only to grant rights but also to cancel them 'as provided by law.' It claims that governments must guarantee children 'freedom of expression... freedom to seek, receive, and impart information... freedom of thought, conscience, and religion,' regardless of the wishes of their parents. 5.) The UN Charter outlines the path to world tyranny. After giving lip service about not intervening 'in matters which are essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of any state...', the UN Charter continues 'but this principle shall not prejudice the application of enforcement measures under Chapter VII.' Chapter VII discusses sanctions and boycotts, but if these are decided to "be inadequate, it may take such action by air, sea, or land forces as may be necessary to maintain or restore international peace and security.' The UN used this broad assertion of authority as the pretext for its armed intervention in the domestic turmoil in Somalia and Haiti. 6.) The UN is building its own army to enforce its will. In 1992, UN Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali, fulfilling a directive from the UN Security Council, unveiled An Agenda For Peace, a plan to strengthen UN 'peackeeping' capabilities. The plan calls for armed forces to be made available to the UN 'on a permanent basis.' It ominously warns, 'The time of absolute and exclusive sovereignty has passed' and proceeds to name a long list of 'risks for stability' that would be used to justify use of the 'permanent' UN army to enforce its will. Incredibly, U.S. leaders are using America's military to pave the way for this UN army. In Bosnia, Somalia, Haiti, and elsewhere, foreign UN commanders have controlled our troops. When 15 Americans were killed over Iraq in mid-1994, Vice-President Gore extended condolences 'to the families of those who died in the service of the United Nations.' Even more incredibly, it has been the official policy of the U.S. government since 1961 to disarm America and create a UN army. This policy concludes: 'progressive controlled disarmament would proceed to the point where no nation would have the military power to challenge the progressively strengthened UN Peace Force.' (See State Department publication 7277: Freedom from War.) 7.) The UN doesn't settle disputes -- it makes them worse! Our ambassador to the UN in 1982, although a UN supporter, admitted, 'The UN has become an arena in which countries are drawn into problems they might never have become involved in.' Ask yourself: Should Seychelles or Benin or Guyana or Barbados have to take sides in a clash that breaks out on the opposite side of the world? When centuries-old animosities erupt in the former Yugoslavia, why does the UN inject its presence with troops, blockades, bombing, and a parade of speeches? American troops serving as globocops for the UN become targets for criminals and terrorists. In 1983, 241 U.S. Marines were blown to bits at the Beirut Airport. Five years later, a U.S. Marine Lieutenant Colonel was kidnapped and eventually murdered by Arab terrorists while in a UN unit in Lebanon (he was unarmed as required by the UN). The UN 'peacekeeping mission' in Somalia cost the lives of another 36 Americans in 1993. 8.) The UN ignores Communist atrocities but targets non-communist nations and leaders. When Soviet tanks rolled into Hungary in the 1950's, when the Chinese communists were murdering Tibetans in the 1960's, when the Soviets were butchering civilians in Afghanistan in the 1970's and 80's, when Chechnya was brutalized by the Russians in the 1990's, the UN did nothing! But the UN declared tiny Rhodesia 'a threat to international peace' in the 1960's, enabling pro-communist terrorist Robert Mugabe to seize power. And it was a UN-led campaign that brought self-described communist and convicted terrorist Nelson Mandela to power in South Africa in the 1990's. 9.) The UN embraces communist China -- history's most murderous criminal regime. In 1949, anti-communist Nationalist China, one of the UN's founding members, was forced from the mainland to Taiwan by the Communists. In 1971, the UN expelled Taiwan and embraced the brutal Red Chinese government -- a government responsible for over 35 million murders. When the vote admitting Red China was announced, UN delegates danced in the aisles to show their contempt for America and their joy at the triumph of Red China. 10.) The UN is an amoral cesspool filled with perverts and fat cats. In 1993, the UN Economic and Social Council granted consultant status to the International Gay and Lesbian Association which includes the North American Man/Boy Love Association (advocates child molestation) and the Dutch group Vereniging Martijn (which also promotes use of children as sex objects). In 1988, the top Belgian UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) official was one of a group convicted of running a child sex right. Moral bankruptcy is commonplace in UN operations. In Zimbabwe, UNICEF-donated equipment helped terrorists seize power. In Vietnam, the Communists received $13 million from UNICEF while untold thousands of boat people fled for their lives. Fat Cats? UN employees are paid 40% more than comparable U.S. workers, have subsidized rent, take extravagant vacations, are exempt from income taxes, avoid sales taxes in UN stores, eat in discounted UN restaurants, and park in discounted UN garages. An ex-UNICEF official confirmed that 'pampered and cosseted staffs' of various aid agencies 'absorb 80% of all UN expenditures.' 11.) America supplies the money, the UN then finances tyrants and assorted enemies of the U.S., and conditions in the nations 'aided' grow worse. U.S. taxpayers pay 25% of the UN budget plus 31% of the UN special-agency budgets. Additional billions of our dollars go to the IMF, World Bank, and other UN-related lending agencies where they have been used for incredibly wasteful and subversive UN projects. (Not suprising since these agencies were designed by Soviety agent Harry Dexter White and Fabian Socialist John Maynard Keynes.) Socialist International spokesman Hilary Marquand aptly described the IMF as 'in essence a Socialist conception.' World Bank 'aid' funds went to brutal Marxist dictator Mengistu while he was causing large- scale starvation and death in Ethiopia; to Tanzanian dictator Julius Nyerere as he drove peasants off their land and burned their huts; and to the Vietnamese Communists, sending thousands of boat people into the sea. Even Newsweek Magazine concluded that the UN's foreign aid programs tend 'to prop up incompetent governments or subsidize economies so they can never stand on their own.' 12.) The UN is a war organization, NOT a peace organization. Article 42 of the UN Charter claims authority to 'take such action by air, sea or land forces as may be necessary to maintain or restore international peace and security.' But the UN definition of 'peace' is never given. Tyrannical regimes throughout history have defined 'peace' as the absence of all opposition. To achieve 'peace' in Katanga in 1961, UN planes bombed hospitals, schools, administrative buildings, and private homes. Katanga was an anti-communist province of the Belgian Congo seeking freedom from the Communist-controlled central government. The UN is not now, and has never been, a peace organization. It will use whatever military power it is given to force all nations of the world to submit." Government - Government bureaucracy agencies are in general enemies of the right and of freedom. They restrict Americans unfairly and they steal our tax dollars and waste them. Civil service employees are people that have ridden in on the coattails of corrupt politicians, and are therefore to be considered the enemy as well. WHO IS NOT THE ENEMY? The National Guard - Never shoot a National Guardsman. The National Guard is made up of almost completely civilians, A Minutemen bulletin in New Jersey instructed the following: "UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES TRY ANY DOORSTEP HEROICS BY SHOOTING IT OUT WITH THOSE WHO COME FOR YOUR WEAPON! Most likely the National Guard will be the unlucky ones selected for gun roundup. DON'T SHOOT NATIONAL GUARDSMEN. Many of them are already in our organization and many others are fully sympathetic with our position..." The Armed Forces - Again, for the most part, our Armed Forces are friendly to the right-wing. The high command tends to stick with the government, but lower officers and GI's are either friendly to the right wing, or very pliable to the position. Even divisions such as the Green Berets who are supposed to be die hard government warriors are friends to the right. Local Police - To take an old addage from the right, "Support Your Local Police." No matter what group you are considering, almost all of them condemn violence against local police forces. The Police and local law enforcement in general can be a valuable tool to have on our side. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ PRISONER OF WAR If you should get caught by these government thugs, you must know what to do. Just state your name, rank (if in a militia, but not the militia name), or social security number. According to Minutemen tests with truth serums, for the most part, they dont work. You must be able to withstand heavy questioning. According to Minutemen testing data, a person will tell more under 1 hour of grueling interrogation than under 5 hours of truth serum. What happens if they give you a lie detector test? Well, there are several easy ways to beat it. To the extent that the polygraph works at all, it works because people believe it does. Many criminals confess during polygraph examinations. Many employees are more honest for fear of periodic screenings. But a dummy polygraph that hummed and scribbled preprogrammed tracings would be no less effective in these instances. David Thoreson Lykken estimates that lie-control polygraph tests are about 70 percent accurate. (Remember, though, that choosing "heads" or "tails" of a flipped coin can be accurate 50 percent of the time.) Accuracy of 70 percent is not impressive, but it is high enough to talk meaningfully of beating a polygraph test. Just by having read this far, you stand a greater chance of beating a polygraph test. You won't be wowed by the fancy dials and pretests. You realize that the polygraph's powers are limited. There are two additional techniques for beating the polygraph. The more obvious is to learn how to repress psychological responses to stressful questions. Some people are good at this; others are not. Most people can get better by practicing with a polygraph. Of course, this training requires a polygraph, and polygraphs are expensive. The opposite approach is to pick out the control questions in the pretest discussion and exaggerate reactions to these questions during the test. When the control-question responses are greater than the relevant-question responses, the polygrapher must acquit the subject. Because breathing is one of the parameters measured, taking a deep breath and holding it will record as an abnormal response. Flexing the arm muscles under the cuff distorts the blood-pressure reading. But a suspicious polygrapher may spot either ruse. A more subtle method is to hide a tack in one shoe. Stepping on the tack during the control questions produces stress reactions with no outward signs of fidgeting. Biting the tongue forcefully also works. Finally, do not answer any questions, or submit to any tests without your lawyer present. This is very important. There are several Patriot Defense Funds out there in many militia groups that help support legal fees for defendants belonging to the right wing if they have trouble paying for top class legal support. VI. Final Notes For any additional information, there are several sources to receive data for technical, ideological, or other subjects. Rush Limbaugh has a fairly good show on Sunday mornings. Gordon Liddy has an excellent right wing radio show, that is very worth listening to. (Liddy was one of the men involved with the actual Watergate breakin). The Anarchists Cookbook can be purchased from many mail-order stores and bookstores. There are other manuals which are very valuable for technical support: The Renegade Cookbook, the Big Book of Mischief, the Home Defense Guide, Kitchen Improved Explosives, etc. Remember: the key to freedom is information... get informed! -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Well, i'm sad to say this is the end. But, with your continued support and interest, further versions of this manual will be published. If we get a big enough correspondence, perhaps a bound and illustrated version can be produced. Until then, if you have any articles for consideration, comments, or questions regarding this manual, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Hopefully, we shall soon establish a page for this document and other DiP productions. If you want to post this file on any pages, or whatever, go ahead, so long as you inform me where it is, and i can make sure it is being used properly. Keep an eye out, and happy hunting!
