Permanent nightmare Things we are not allowed to talk about
By John Kaminski email@example.com
I’m starting to feel like Edgar Allen Poe, the 19th century master of horror stories, now that our reality has turned into one. It seems to me that the personalities of everyone who has received the poison jab have turned dark, and become not metaphorical zombies but real ones. This scary thought seems verified by our own current collection of presidential candidates who are all hollow shells of humans secretly backed by sinister billionaires whose heartfelt intent is to kill everyone and everything to increase their bloodthirsty profit margins. Is this what human destiny has become — cannibal monsters consuming ourselves? You tell me.
Thud! The sound of a falling body hitting the canopy at the bottom of the World Trade Center tower, yes, the falling silhouette of a body twitching spastically in the air, fighting gravity in the final moments of his life, permanently etched in our consciousness, looming like a silent scarecrow in our dreams, emulsified in a puddle of his own bodily fluids.
Splat! Like dropping a watermelon from a very high place, splattered on the pavement. What made him jump? What was so unbearable that freedom became that 10-second fall to oblivion in his final moments, an act preferable to being roasted by a direct energy weapon a thousand feet above the unforgiving Manhattan pavement?
Or like the mother in Maui assured by blasé firefighters that the buildings were cleared and everyone was safe, then coming home finding the body of her young son clutching the family dog, his crumbling little corpse still smoldering in the rubble of the lie of America’s torpid future and its hideous past.
Why weren’t they talking about these things in America’s wretched presidential debate last night? Why weren’t they talking about the phony wars America inflicts upon the world for the purpose of the pustule of profit that motivates America’s curdled politicians, as they smile grimly at you while they cravenly beg for your vote?
Why weren’t they talking about the leering litany of lies that comprise American history never taught, ever couched in ridiculous tales of virtue signaling about a fictitious enemy we created ourselves in order to convince everyone our government was helping us to live when the sorry fact is that it was always aiming at our untimely termination.
• Like the poison jab from the disease that wasn’t there, and still isn’t.
• Or the curious fires that obliterate our homes but leave our trees alone.
• They recommend cars that need to be charged every two hours so we won’t travel very far.
• But mostly contrive those wars that make the world bleed to prove our government is really necessary to protect us from ourselves.
So the painted clown face of the human race stares back at us from the mirror of our dreams as we watch their latest sales tales unfold. The stare turns to a glare and then the glare to a leering grin at the story they spin that these fires they create by beams from above that turns the human future into a giant cinder that they blame on something called global warming that is really only a fairy tale to herd humans into a giant corral where they can be properly controlled, efficiently processed, purposefully sedated and recklessly exterminated so that richest among us can live peacefully on their plantation of perverted pederasty.
Human cattle herded toward a slaughterhouse. This is human history. We cannot escape it as long as we continue to lie about who we are and what we’ve done.
Think you’ve got it all worked out? All you can really choose is the manner of your death. Except that now the men who have gathered so much cash that don’t have to worry about being refuted have decided to choose it for us, as they light a backfire against the wind that is going to immolate our future in the flames of our own curdled karma.
And the affluent smirk at the utter powerlessness of we pathetic useless eaters. They look at us with total contempt, like those barbaric black thugs who beat up defenseless white haired ladies for fun, and spit on them. “What are you going to do about it?” they growl in the snickering sadism of their own ignorance, trying but failing to kill their own deaths, but quite satisfied at inflicting ours.
Out of the pit of darkest night wafts the signature phrase of Edgar Allen Poe’s tortured comment about human hope. “Quoth the Raven — nevermore.”

Attention Minister Bruce Ralston, Minister George Heyman and Minister Mike Farnworth:
We write to request urgently needed help for residents in Celista and the surrounding area of the Shuswap Lake region of British Columbia for:
• timely firefighting help.
• access to fire hydrant water for firefighting.
• land and water access to necessaries, including food, water and fuel.
• adequate prior notification when Forestry or Firefighting personnel set fires in the area.
• notification to affected people when fires threaten lands and residences.
• freedom for the residents–those who stayed behind–to move about as needed, to help one another.
• to allow them to get supplies and machinery where and when needed to put out the remaining fires.
• a thorough investigation into who gave the order for the back burn on a day when high winds were predicted.
• who gave the order that essentially prohibits residents from helping other residents to fight the fires.
• who gave the orders for police to block supplies.
Moreover, residents need to be included in both consultation and decision making, and firefighting responses. Mechanisms can and must be put in place to allow BC Wildfire Service and local Fire Services to make use of and coordinate local resources, including community volunteers and their equipment.
Help controlling and extinguishing fires threatening Shuswap residents’ homes and lands is reported to have been slow and intermittent, with fire crews being taken off the Shuswap fire and transferred back onto the Kelowna fire. Furthermore, residents have reported that in one instance a fire crew stood by, refusing to assist after having been ordered to stay put, leaving residents to protect their homes on their own. Fortunately, said fire crew eventually gave in to reason and compassionate common-sense and lent their hands to putting out the spot fires as they arose. Equally disturbing is the fact that police have been blocking and continue to block land and water access to residents attempting to bring in necessary supplies to those who have chosen to remain and protect their homes. Fire hydrants have been shut off preventing access to water for firefighting.
Police ought to be concentrating their efforts on protecting vital fire equipment and preventing looting. Police should not be keeping food, water, and fuel from those who are endeavouring to save their own and their neighbours’ homes—such obstruction constitutes a real and avoidable threat to their survival.
Resources need to be invested in good-faith communication efforts to support organized, communally anchored and supported collaboration to fight the fires threatening Shuswap and Okanagan communities. The measure of civic responsibility is not passive compliance and communities are not created or run by experts. On the contrary, community responsibility is exercised by actions that are competent, collaborative, consensual, and based on shared knowledge of community needs.
A Celista Creek resident reports that help from fire fighters has not been readily available. On 17 August at about 4:00 pm, forestry and fire fighter personnel apparently set a back burn fire approximately 15 km from the end of Meadow Creek Road in Celista, at a time when strong winds were forecast for the area, and without notifying Celista residents. By midnight the fire had spread to the Meadow Creek property of a resident. When the resident sought help from nearby firefighters the resident was initially told that although the firemen wanted to help, they had orders to ‘sit’. Residents, eventually assisted by firefighters, were able to, at least temporarily, control the blaze. Police are now reported to be blocking land and water access, preventing residents who have stayed on their properties from receiving necessary supplies of gas, food and water.
This information points to government agents acting not to save but to harm the residents of the North Shuswap area. Government authorities have not acted to protect the safety of residents threatened by fire in Celista and the surrounding area. While residents have not received timely help from available firefighters, an inexplicably excessive police presence has been deployed to prevent community members, who have chosen to remain and defend their homes, from receiving necessary supplies.
We ask that you immediately put in place all measures necessary to ensure that residents are properly consulted and assisted in leaving or defending their properties and that residents are provided with:
a) fire threat notification. b) timely firefighting help. c) water for firefighting from functioning fire hydrants. d) access to necessaries. e) freedom to move supplies and machinery unimpeded by authorities. f) answers regarding orders given to backburn, to prohibit volunteer efforts, to block supplies.
Please advise us of your actions to address these urgent needs.
Thank you in advance for taking the actions requested.

Our home the night of the fire, photo by Angie Laryea
During the firestorm, a brave neighbour drove up the road to check on our place and took an amazing photo above of the hillside behind our home ablaze, yet the fire never went past the area that had been watered. This successful protection of our home should serve as a prime example of why everyone who lives in rural areas needs to do fire proofing to protect their homes.
A photo of our house the day after the fire
August 21, 2023
A fire caused by lightning started above the west side of Adams Lake on July 12th, grew slowly then initially exploded on July 20th due to a windstorm. Early in August, it moved down the hillside and if not for a huge effort by firefighters it would have destroyed homes and cabins along the lake. The fire continued to grow due to the winds and edged further southeast towards the North Shuswap community of Lee Creek, in the North Shuswap. By the third week of August it was about 6 km away from properties. When the weather report indicated that a strong northerly windstorm would hit on the evening of August 17th, the BC Wildfire Service made the extremely risky decision to use a controlled burn (a backburn) to reduce the fuel load in front of the fire.
They lit the backburn using a helicopter and ping-pong balls filled with sodium nitrate and anti-freeze. It was a massive fire that produced a giant mushroom cloud of smoke above the hills above our home. The next day the strong winds blew the combined fire down to Lee Creek, Scotch Creek and Celista, destroying approximately 100 homes, cabins, and businesses.

The fire also combined with another fire on east side of Adams Lake below the lake creating a firestorm that blew into Squilax, forcing the evacuation of the fire camp in a field and then destroying a gas station, homes and many cabins. It jumped across the Little Shuswap River and then destroyed homes north and south of the Squilax Bridge before moving up Squilax Mountain, east to the hills above Sorrento and south into Turtle Valley. This end of the fire continues to threaten the South Shuswap, Skimikin, Sorrento and as far away as Tappen.
This fire remains an ongoing disaster as there are spot fires everywhere and the fire is continuing to advance slowly eastward. Here are my notes for a number of recent media interviews:
1. BCWS is ultimately responsible for the mess.
2. Did not adequately respond to the fire when it began.
3. Response waited until it grew and nearly burned houses at Adams Lake.
4. In a drought, fires are nearly impossible to put out or stop.
5. The backburn backfired – it was lit too far from the fire and too late as the northerly windstorm was only hours away – it increased the fire size and then it blew across Scotch Creek and into the hills above Celista – plus the fire creeped through the Lee Creek canyon underneath the powerline.
6. The evacuation order came too late. We could see the fire creeping over the ridge behind us and were told the fire was at Scotch Creek so we left one hour before the order was given. As a result, people were trapped in east of the Scotch Creek bridge because the fire was on both sides of the road to the west. Some escaped by boat or drove east for 40 km on a logging road to Seymour Arm and then some drove in a convoy for another 50 km on a rough road to Malakwa. There were at least 500 people in Seymour Arm that night.
7. Currently, it is primarily locals that are fighting the spot fires. Nonetheless, one of our friend’s homes burned down yesterday from a spot fire that no one was able to get to. The local firefighters are loggers and contractors with trucks, water tanks and shovels, working day and night to protect their homes and their neighbour’s homes. They are the real heroes. In addition, there are some fire trucks from all over the province lending a hand. There were three fire trucks in our yard helping – from Vancouver Island, Big White and Scotch Creek.
8. Despite the heroic efforts of the locals, the authorities are doing everything they can to stop them. They have brought police up from Vancouver to man checkpoints and stop people from driving in or driving through the community.
9. Our Regional District director is one of the local heroes, as he has also defied the rules and remained to help, even working to fight a fire in his community. Yesterday, he was stopped by the police for trying to transport food from a boat to a restaurant where it was to be distributed for free to the locals.
10. Due to the roadblocks, locals have been using boats to get in and out and to bring in supplies. Our resilient community has come together in this emergency and will emerge stronger when it is over. Currently, because the police are blocking efforts to bring in supplies, residents are sharing the food from their thawing freezers. Two local restaurants are providing free meals.
11. The overall problem is that both the provincial and federal government has misplaced priorities, as it continues to fund oil and gas infrastructure to the tune of billions of dollars, rather than investing in the tools and manpower the country needs to respond to the climate boiling emergency we are faced with. We need fleets of water bombers instead of 30-billion-dollar pipeline.
A photo of me working on the spot fire near our home
I was able to return to my property the day after the fire swept through and with the help of a young WWOOFer from Germany, we began working on a spot fire that could have burned down our pump house and/or lit the remaining forest on fire and burned down a neighbour’s house. We used buckets from our pond initially, until a fire department truck arrived. It was doused multiple times and it kept coming back, because it was burning underground in tree roots. One of the many locals with a truck and water tank also came to help. When we finally left near dark, there was another fire truck dousing it. Then late that night it blew up again and the local returned to water it down. This example shows how difficult it is to deal with spot fires, that could continue for months.
A fire department crew from Vancouver Island again working on our spot fire at the end of the day. This fire continue to flare up for days afterwards and was again doused by both local and fire department fire fighters.
The main news story yesterday that continues today is that equipment used to keep a key bridge watered down was either stolen or “borrowed.” They use this story continuously to justify the heavy police lockdown, yet there many doubts about this story, because no one ever saw the equipment missing. The fire had swept by the area during the Friday night firestorm and there was no longer any threat to the bridge as there were no nearby spot fires and yet they continued to water the bridge. As well, the equipment being used is extremely heavy and would not be easy to take away.
“Because of the road blockades and spike belts, the only way in and out is by boat. Many dozens of boat owners have been volunteering their time to ferry people and supplies back and forth from the south shore to the north shore from marinas in Blind Bay and Sorrento and from private docks. Yet now police and conservation officers are out on the lake halting and chasing these boats, with the aid of police on shore using binoculars. As well, police have shown up at the marinas to block this effort.”

As well, police have shown up at the marinas to block this effort.
The reason our home was saved is due to the fire smart work we have done over the past few years. We selectively logged our property, leaving most of the largest trees and near our home we removed most of the conifer trees. Knowing how dangerous decorative junipers are, we removed all the ones that posed a threat. On the day before the firestorm, we thoroughly watered the hillside behind our house, as that is where the fire would come from as lawns cover the yard in front of our house.
Here is a CBC Kamloops Daybreak interview from August 21 and 22:
Author of the local best seller, Everything Shuswap, Jim Cooperman moved to the Shuswap in 1969 as a war resister and a back-to-the-lander, after receiving his BA from the University of California at Berkeley. Over the succeeding years, Jim taught school, worked in construction and log building, operated a sawmill, and edited a provincial environmental journal, the BC Environmental Report. His local environmental work led to the protection of over 25,000 hectares of new parks in the Shuswap, which is documented in the book, Big Trees Saved, by Deanna Kawatski. He has researched and written about local history and helped initiate and edit the local history journal, Shuswap Chronicles I and II. In 1993, he wrote the Chapter on Canada in Clearcut – The Tragedy of Industrial Forestry. And in 1998, he wrote Keeping the Special in Special Management Zones, A Citizens’ Guide, published by BC Spaces for Nature. Jim lives with his wife, Kathleen, in a log home they built on 40 acres above Shuswap Lake, where they raised five children. His column, “Shuswap Passion,” appears every two weeks in either the Shuswap Market News or the Salmon Arm Observer. Additionally, his YouTube channel has over 100 videos, including many that showcase live music, skiing and Shuswap geography.
[Editor’s Note: This bullshit by the NDP government and their Ministry of Fire Starters is looking more like a bloody holocaust every day than a “controlled burn”. It simply boggles the mind hearing about the asinine behaviour of the the fire crews and their government Overlords. The people affected MUST take control of the situation and let the supposed “authorities” know that their actions are absolutely criminal and that the citizens affected won’t stand for it any longer. Please share this latest video and write to the dimwitted Ministry of Forests and give them something to think about!]
[Editor: I just received an email from one of the local residents who has a place close to Celiste. She sent an email she received from the local Regional District representative outlining the situation on the ground.]
“Sometimes takes a day to get an answer or for CSRD to figure out a plan. Medications: There have been challenges for the people stuck, yes stuck, in Magna Bay to Seymour Arm. Getting out of there, a non-evacuation zone, means coming to Ross Creek Store and waiting for three or four more cars who want to leave. Then they get an escort through to Squilax, to make sure they’re safe (and to make sure they don’t drop off any supplies to anyone in the evacuation zone). Anyway, medications – So, pick a pharmacy in Chase or Salmon Arm, call them to get the meds set up, tell them the CSRD is authorized to pic them up. Call the EOC at 250-833-3350 and tell them where they are and ask where they will be delivered. They will be delivered to Anglemont or Ross Creek Store.
Had a friend take videos of a trip to Anglemont so I could get a handle on how things are going in the Evacuation Order Zone. And things are looking better. That glorious rain last night cooled things down it seems. There are definitely hot spots, along the roads, in the trees (which you can see through very easily now). I did not see any live flames on that video. Ross Rathbone sent me some pics, and a location pin of some fire in a steep area of Onyx Creek and I sent it along to BC Wildfire who passed it on to their operations group. I don’t think it got acted on because they had 3 or 4 helicopters working on the Sorrento fire for most of the day.
It’s 5:30pm now and they’re still going at it.So, in talking to my community contacts, it seems things are settling down a bit. The 6 hours of rain we had last night sure helped lift spirits even if it didn’t do enough to the fire. Most activity has moved from stomping out fires to building fire guards. BCWS has been working with us in a few places but we know the fire in Sorrento is moving faster towards civilization than the fire in the NS is right now.
And speaking of civilization I haven’t gone into this in great detail but in a conversation, I just had with one of my fellow CSRD directors, she wasn’t aware of the level of lockdown that we are living under. So I’m wondering if my fantasy stories maybe didn’t quite get the message across.
We are living in a Police State.
From the #1 highway you are stopped and have to show a pass, or know the password, or the secret handshake. Then driving to Magna Bay you are stopped at the Scotch Creek bridge where you need the magic key. At Ross Creek you are stopped once more where you need to perform a leprechaun dance to get through. Coming back you need the same skills, except in the reverse order. Everyday day they change things. I heard a story where the guy had to do the leprechaun dance on his hands, but I think that’s just a rumour.
So all of this to make sure that a hot dog or full water bottle, or a jerry can of gas, or a generator, or water pump (hope we don’t have to fight any fires), doesn’t get dropped off in the big EZ (eviction zone).
The specific words texted to me are “The (Emergency Operations Centre) will not be authorizing supplies or permits to support the people who ignored the evacuation order”.
Pretty simple, straight forward.It is astounding to me the number of people who have phoned, texted, emailed (although I have been very bad responding to the emails) with offers of help, or want to come help fight fires. You can’t imagine what it means to me/us the level of support.
And for those who are wondering whether I’ll ever get back to my fantasy story, well the few hours of sleep I am getting are devoted to various chapters in a Tolkienesque novelette that I’ll be working on once we get through this mess. I just don’t have the brain power to devote to it right now.
[EDITOR’S NOTE: This story came across my desk late last night on Tuesday, August 22nd, 2023. It’s a critical situation in the Shushwap region of B.C. and the people there desperately need help in getting out the information contained in the following video. Try to do SOMETHING! We can no longer rely on the B.C. Government or the B.C. Forest Service or the RCMP to be of any assistance for they’ve all been co-opted by the NWO criminal cartel in one way or another. Do your damnedest to pass this information around. Thanks.]
PLEASE READ AND DO WHAT YOU CAN!
We need to get the story out about what’s happening in the Shuswap. Can you guys please post this everywhere. Send it to everyone you know. Please help us.
My name is Stef and my husband Jorne and I own a home at the end of Meadow Creek road in Celista BC. The fire department and forestry lit a back burn around 4pm on Thursday Aug 17th knowing there were 30km winds coming. No news outlet is talking about this. My husband has been monitoring the winds and the Adams creek fire for weeks. On Tuesday Aug 15th we knew the winds were coming. The fire was approximately 15km away from us. We don’t know who decided to light a back burn knowing the wind forecast. They lit a 14km back burn right to our back door and never notified us. My dad who lives in Kelowna knew about a “out of control back burn” before we did. They didn’t even come to tell us. They notified the locals by posting it on a piece of paper at the gas station.
At 8:45 pm we saw the fire just over the ridge. And by 12pm it had reached meadow creek road and was in our back yard. Without the back burn we could have had a whole day to prepare. We did have sprinklers up, water tanks loaded and generators ready to go. We knew we were pretty much on our own and would not receive much help. The fire department did come down the road and were there briefly. Once they deemed the fire out of control they left. When the fire came into the valley we watched it burn up the sides of the mountain due to the humidity dome created with all the sprinkler and water. The fire department abandoned us. About 2 hours had passed when some locals came down our valley with resources and help. I was notified the fire department was sitting in a field having coffee so I went to get them. When I got there I asked them to come help us, told them the situation. One of the firemen told me they wanted to help but had orders to sit. I yelled at them to get in their trucks and come help us. They said they would. I went back down the road to notify our crew they were coming. I sat and waited but no one came. About 15 minutes had gone by so I went back up the road and found them sitting about 1km away. They told me they were assessing the situation. I asked how they could assess if they couldn’t see it? I again asked them to come help and they finally did. Everyone ran around putting hot spots out. We wore water packs and half masks with headlamps for the next 3 days making sure our houses made it through.
In the initial days after the “superfire” the locals were able to get water, gas and supplies but now there is a heavy police presence. They have the roads blocked off saying they are preventing looting. The locals are being told to return to their homes. They are not allowed to be helping at all. There are spike strips on the roads. Police blocks everywhere. There are people trying to get essential supplies in such as water, gas and food by boat. They are being turned away. Police are patrolling the roads and water. They have the gas stations blocked off.
We need the real story to get out so we can get help. We are more than equipped to help put this fire out but are being stopped. We need resources such as gas, diesel to keep us going. They’re trying to starve us out so they can let it burn.
My number is 250-509-0400 Please feel free to post my number. I’m willing to talk to anyone who can help us. We need to get the story out about what’s happening in the Shuswap.
The SEDITIONIST ISSUE 12, FEBRUARY 1992: FINAL EDITION
The concept of Leaderless Resistance was proposed by Col. Ulius Louis Amoss, who was the founder of International Service of Information Incorporated, located in Baltimore, Maryland. Col. Amoss died more than fifteen years ago, but during his life was a tireless opponent of communism, as well as a skilled Intelligence Officer. Col. Amoss first wrote of Leaderless Resistance on April 17, 1962. His theories of organization were primarily directed against the threat of eventual Communist take-over in the United States. The present writer, with the benefit of having lived many years beyond Col. Amoss, has taken his theories and expounded upon them. Col. Amoss feared the Communists. This author fears the federal government. Communism now represents a threat to no one in the United States, while federal tyranny represents a threat to everyone. The writer has joyfully lived long enough to see the dying breaths of communism, but may, unhappily, remain long enough to see the last grasps of freedom in America.
In the hope that, somehow, America can still produce the brave sons and daughters necessary to fight off ever increasing persecution and oppression, this essay is offered. Frankly, it is too close to call at this point. Those who love liberty, and believe in freedom enough to fight for it, are rare today, but within the bosom of every once great nation, there remains secreted, the pearls of former greatness. They are there. I have looked into their sparking eyes; sharing a brief moment in time with them as I passed through this life. Relished their friendship, endured their pain, and they mine. We are a band of brothers, native to the soil gaining strength one from another as we have rushed head long into a battle that all the weaker, timid men, say we cannot win. Perhaps…but then again, perhaps we can. It’s not over till the last freedom fighter is buried or imprisoned, or the same happens to those who would destroy their freedom.
Barring any cataclysmic events, the struggle will yet go on for years. The passage of time will make it clear to even the more slow among us that the government is the foremost threat to the life, and liberty of the folk. The government will no doubt make today’s oppressiveness look like grade school work compared to what they have planned in the future. Meanwhile, there are those of us who continue to hope that somehow the few can do what the many have not. We are cognizant that before things get better they will certainly get worse as government shows a willingness to use ever more severe police state measures against dissidents. This changing situation makes it clear that those who oppose state repression must be prepared to alter, adapt, and modify their behaviour, strategy, and tactics as circumstances warrant. Failure to consider new methods and implement them as necessary will make the government’s efforts at suppression uncomplicated. It is the duty of every patriot to make the tyrant’s life miserable. When one fails to do so he not only fails himself, but his people.
With this in mind, current methods of resistance to tyranny employed by those who love our race, culture, and heritage must pass a litmus test of soundness. Methods must be objectively measured as to their effectiveness, as well as to whether they make the government’s intention of repression more possible or more difficult. Those not working to aid our objectives must be discarded or the government benefits from our failure to do so.
As honest men who have banded together into groups or associations of a political or religious nature are falsely labeled “domestic terrorists” or “cultists” and suppressed, it will become necessary to consider other methods of organization–or as the case may very well call for: non-organization. One should keep in mind that it is not in the government’s interest to eliminate all groups. Some few must remain in order to perpetuate the smoke and mirrors vision for the masses that America is a “free democratic country” where dissent is allowed. Most organizations, however, that possess the potential for effective resistance will not be allowed to continue. Anyone who is so naive as to believe the most powerful government on earth will not crush any who pose a real threat to that power, should not be active, but rather, at home studying political history.
The question as to who is to be left alone and who is not, will be answered by how groups and individuals deal with several factors such as: avoidance of conspiracy plots, rejection of feeble minded malcontents, insistence upon quality of the participants, avoidance of all contact with the front men for the federals–the news media–and, finally, camouflage (which can be defined as the ability to blend in the public’s eye the more committed groups of resistance with mainstream “kosher” associations that are generally seen as harmless.) Primarily though, whether any organization is allowed to continue in the future will be a matter of how big a threat a group represents. Not a threat in terms of armed might or political ability, for there is none of either for the present, but rather, threat in terms of potentiality. It is potential the federals fear most. Whether that potential exists in an individual or group is incidental. The federals measure potential threat in terms of what might happen given a situation conducive to action on the part of a restive organization or individual. Accurate intelligence gathering allows them to assess the potential. Showing one’s hand before the bets are made, is a sure way to lose.
The movement for freedom is rapidly approaching the point where for many people, the option of belonging to a group will be nonexistent. For others, group membership will be a viable option for only the immediate future. Eventually, and perhaps much sooner than most believe possible, the price paid for membership will exceed any perceived benefit. But for now, some of the groups that do exist often serve a useful purpose either for the newcomer who can be indoctrinated into the ideology of the struggle, or for generating positive propaganda to reach potential freedom fighters. It is sure that, for the most part, this struggle is rapidly becoming a matter of individual action, each of its participants making a private decision in the quietness of his heart to resist: to resist by any means necessary. It is hard to know what others will do, for no man truly knows another man’s heart. It is enough to know what one himself will do. A great teacher once said “know thyself.” Few men really do, but let each of us, promise ourselves, not to go quietly to the fate our would-be masters have planned.
The concept of Leaderless Resistance is nothing less than a fundamental departure in theories of organization. The orthodox scheme of organization is diagrammatically represented by the pyramid, with the mass at the bottom and the leader at the top. This fundamental of organization is to be seen not only in armies, which are of course, the best illustration of the pyramid structure, with the mass of soldiery, the privates, at the bottom responsible to corporals who are in turn responsible to sergeants, and so on up the entire chain of command to the generals at the top. But the same structure is seen in corporations, ladies’ garden clubs and in our political system itself. This orthodox “pyramid” scheme of organization is to be seen basically in all existing political, social and religious structures in the world today from the Federal government to the Roman Catholic Church. The Constitution of the United States, in the wisdom of the Founders, tried to sublimate the essential dictatorial nature of pyramidal organization by dividing authority into three: executive, legislative and judicial. But the pyramid remains essentially untouched.
This scheme of organization, the pyramid, is however, not only useless, but extremely dangerous for the participants when it is utilized in a resistance movement against state tyranny. Especially is this so in technologically advanced societies where electronic surveillance can often penetrate the structure revealing its chain of command. Experience has revealed over and over again that anti-state, political organizations utilizing this method of command and control are easy prey for government infiltration, entrapment, and destruction of the personnel involved. This has been seen repeatedly in the United States where pro-government infiltrators or agent provocateurs weasel their way into patriotic groups and destroy them from within.
In the pyramid type of organization, an infiltrator can destroy anything which is beneath his level of infiltration and often those above him as well. If the traitor has infiltrated at the top, then the entire organization from the top down is compromised and may be traduced at will.
An alternative to the pyramid type of organization is the cell system. In the past, many political groups (both right and left) have used the cell system to further their objectives. Two examples will suffice. During the American Revolution “committees of correspondence” were formed throughout the Thirteen colonies.
Their purpose was to subvert the government and thereby aid the cause of independence. The “Sons of Liberty”, who made a name for themselves dumping government taxed tea into the harbour at Boston, were the action arm of the committees of correspondence. Each committee was a secret cell that operated totally independently of the other cells. Information on the government was passed from committee to committee, from colony to colony, and then acted upon on a local basis. Yet even in these bygone days of poor communication, of weeks to months for a letter to be delivered, the committees without any central direction whatsoever, were remarkable similar in tactics employed to resist government tyranny. It was, as the first American patriots knew, totally unnecessary for anyone to give an order for anything. Information was made available to each committee, and each committee acted as it saw fit. A recent example of the cell system taken from the left wing of politics are the Communists. The Communist, in order to get around the obvious problems involved in pyramidal organization, developed to an art the cell system. They had numerous independent cells which operated completely isolated from one another and particularly with no knowledge of each other, but were orchestrated together by a central headquarters. For instance, during World War II, in Washington, it is known that there were at least six secret Communist cells operating at high levels in the United States government (plus all the open Communists who were protected and promoted by President Roosevelt), however, only one of the cells was rooted out and destroyed. How many more actually were operating no one can say for sure.
The Communist cells which operated in the U.S until late 1991 under Soviet control could have at their command a leader, who held a social position which appeared to be very lowly. He could be, for example, a busboy in a restaurant, but in reality a colonel or a general in the Soviet Secret Service, the KGB. Under him could be a number of cells and a person active in one cell would almost never have knowledge of individuals who are active in another cell. The value of this is that while any one cell can be infiltrated, exposed or destroyed, such action will have no effect on the other cells; in fact, the members of the other cells will be supporting that cell which is under attack and ordinarily would lend very strong support to it in many ways. This is at least part of the reason, no doubt, that whenever in the past Communists were attacked in this country, support for them sprang up in many unexpected places.
The efficient and effective operation of a cell system after the Communist model, is of course, dependent upon central direction, which means impressive organization, funding from the top, and outside support, all of which the Communists had. Obviously, American patriots have none of these things at the top or anywhere else, and so an effective cell organization based upon the Soviet system of operation is impossible.
Two things become clear from the above discussion. First, that the pyramid type of organization can be penetrated quite easily and it thus is not a sound method of organization in situations where the government has the resources and desire to penetrate the structure; which is the situation in this country. Secondly, that the normal qualifications for the cell structure based upon the Red model does not exist in the U.S. for patriots. This understood, the question arises “What method is left for those resisting state tyranny?” The answer comes from Col. Amoss who proposed the “Phantom Cell” mode of organization. Which he described as Leaderless Resistance. A system of organization that is based upon the cell organization, but does not have any central control or direction, that is in fact almost identical to the methods used by the Committees of Correspondence during the American Revolution. Utilizing the Leaderless Resistance concept, all individuals and groups operate independently of each other, and never report to a central headquarters or single leader for direction or instruction, as would those who belong to a typical pyramid organization.
At first glance, such a type of organization seems unrealistic, primarily because there appears to be no organization. The natural question thus arises as to how are the “Phantom cells” and individuals to cooperate with each other when there is no intercommunication or central direction? The answer to this question is that participants in a program of Leaderless Resistance through phantom cell or individual action must know exactly what they are doing, and how to do it. It becomes the responsibility of the individual to acquire the necessary skills and information as to what is to be done. This is by no means as impractical as it appears, because it is certainly true that in any movement, all persons involved have the same general outlook, are acquainted with the same philosophy, and generally react to given situations in similar ways. The pervious history of the committees of correspondence during the American Revolution show this to be true.
Since the entire purpose of Leaderless Resistance is to defeat state tyranny (at least insofar as this essay is concerned), all members of phantom cells or individuals will tend to react to objective events in the same way through usual tactics of resistance. Organs of information distribution such as newspapers, leaflets, computers, etc., which are widely available to all, keep each person informed of events, allowing for a planned response that will take many variations. No one need issue an order to anyone. Those idealists truly committed to the cause of freedom will act when they feel the time is ripe, or will take their cue from others who precede them. While it is true that much could be said against this type of structure as a method of resistance, it must be kept in mind that Leaderless Resistance is a child of necessity. The alternatives to it have been shown to be unworkable or impractical. Leaderless Resistance has worked before in the American Revolution, and if the truly committed put it to use for themselves, it will work now.
It goes almost without saying that Leaderless Resistance leads to very small or even one man cells of resistance. Those who join organizations to play “let’s pretend” or who are “groupies” will quickly be weeded out. While for those who are serious about their opposition to federal despotism, this is exactly what is desired.
From the point of view of tyrants and would be potentates in the federal bureaucracy and police agencies, nothing is more desirable than that those who oppose them be UNIFIED in their command structure, and that every person who opposes them belong to a pyramid type group. Such groups and organizations are an easy kill. Especially in light of the fact that the Justice (sic) Department promised in 1987 that there would never be another group that opposed them that they did not have at least one informer in. These federal “friends of government” are intelligence agents. They gather information that can be used at the whim of a federal D.A. to prosecute. The line of battle has been drawn. Patriots are required therefore, to make a conscious decision to either aid the government in its illegal spying, by continuing with old methods of organization and resistance, or to make the enemy’s job more difficult by implementing effective countermeasures.
Now there will, no doubt, be mentally handicapped people out there who, while standing at a podium with an American flag draped in the background, and a lone eagle soaring in the sky above, will state emphatically in their best sounding red, white, and blue voice, “So what if the government is spying? We are not violating any laws.” Such crippled thinking by any serious person is the best example that there is a need for special education classes. The person making such a statement is totally out of contact with political reality in this country, and unfit for leadership of any thing more than a dog sleigh in the Alaskan wilderness. The old “Born on the fourth of July” mentality that has influenced so much of the American patriot’s thinking in the past will not save him from the government in the future. “Re-education” for non-thinkers of this type will take place in the federal prison system where there are no flags or eagles, but abundance of men who were “not violating any law.”
Most groups who “unify” their disparate associates into a single structure have short political lives. Therefore, those movement leaders constantly calling for unity of organization rather than the desirable unity of purpose, usually fall into one of three categories:
1) They may not be sound political tacticians, but rather, just committed men who feel unity would help their cause, while not realizing that the government would greatly benefit from such efforts. The Federal objective, to imprison or destroy all who oppose them, is made easier in pyramid organizations.
2) Or perhaps, they do not fully understand the struggle they are involved in and that the government they oppose has declared a state of war against those fighting for faith, folk, freedom and constitutional liberty. Those in power will use any means to rid themselves of opposition.
3) The third class calling for unity and let us hope this is the minority of the three, are men more desirous of the supposed power that a large organization would bestow, than of actually achieving their stated purpose.
Conversely, the last thing Federal snoops would have, if they had any choice in the matter, is a thousand different small phantom cells opposing them. It is easy to see why. Such a situation is an intelligence nightmare for a government intent upon knowing everything they possibly can about those who oppose them. The Federals, able to amass overwhelming strength of numbers, manpower, resources, intelligence gathering, and capability at any given time, need only a focal point to direct their anger. A single penetration of a pyramid type of organization can lead to the destruction of the whole. Whereas, Leaderless Resistance presents no single opportunity for the Federals to destroy a significant portion of the Resistance.
With the announcement by the Department of Justice (sic) that 300 FBI agents formerly assigned to watching Soviet spies in the US (domestic counter intelligence) are now to be used to “combat crime”, the federal government is preparing the way for a major assault upon those persons opposed to their policies. Many anti-government groups dedicated to the preservation of the America of our forefathers can expect shortly to feel the brunt of a new federal assault upon liberty.
It is clear, therefore, that it is time to rethink traditional strategy and tactics when it comes to opposing a modern police state. America is quickly moving into a long dark night of police state tyranny, where the rights now accepted by most as being inalienable will disappear. Let the coming night be filled with a thousand points of resistance. Like the fog which forms when conditions are right and disappears when they are not, so must the resistance to tyranny be.
“If every person has the right to defend–even by force–his person, his liberty, and his property, then it follows that a group of men have the right to organize and support a common force to protect these rights constantly.” —The Law/. Frederick Bastiat Paris, 1850.

[EDITOR’ NOTE: Well it looks like the insane, psychopathic, murdering, sonofabitch Bill Gates has finally managed to add another notch to his gun in his global quest to jab and poison and kill as many of the world’s population as this disgusting excuse for a human being possibly can.
How in hell he’s got this far without being locked up in an asylum is beyond me. For one estranged maniac to be allowed to roam around loose causing the amount of damage he’s inflicted upon the human species begs the question as to where we, as a race of beings supposedly created and endowed with intelligence, morality, common sense, dignity, honour, love for our fellow beings and for this Garden of Eden we call Mother Earth bequeathed to us by a loving God, truly are today.
If this criminal assault upon the people and all lifeforms of planet Earth is left unattended by us then we’ll truly be fucked and unworthy of remaining here on this once glorious gift we’ve allowed these psychos to continually degrade and destroy. This is an issue that MUST BE STOPPED DEAD in its tracks and those responsible for attempting to initiate it arrested and quarantined for the good of all humanity.
There’s NO EXCUSE possible for any of us to shrug this off. WE THE PEOPLE must begin taking it to the streets everywhere and BOYCOTTING every corporation and business that has acquiesced to Gates’s diabolic, DESTRUCTIVE agenda.]
Opening the GATES & Getting the Word out about ‘Apeel’
Posted by Valerie Wilson 10GS on June 12, 2023
I have been telling everyone I come across about the new toxic coating ‘Apeel’ that has been approved to be put on our fruits and vegetables. So far, I have not come across anyone who has heard of it. I have a booth at the local farmer’s market and last Thursday, here in Westland, Michigan where I live, I had flyers to hand out about ‘Apeel’. No one had heard of it and the people who sell produce at the market had not either and they were very interested to learn more about it.
This is the third blog I have written about ‘Apeel’ and everyone I talk to about it, post on social media about it, or send emails to about it, wants more information about it, so I will keep sharing the places I am getting information about ‘Apeel’.
Just like when GMO food came out and I started talking about it, most had not heard of genetically modifying food. I have been teaching others to stay away from GMO food or anything made this way for years. Just like I am sounding the alarm bell now about ‘Apeel’.
Some people who I have shared this information with have not been so fast to see the harmful effects of putting this on our foods. Why may you ask? Because the website for ‘Apeel’ says it is made with plants and only has one ingredient. Therefore, they come to the conclusion it is not so bad. Let’s use this analogy, that would be like asking the people who created GMO food, if the food is harmful for us to eat… of course they are going to say it is safe and lie to get it to the public! Can we use common sense here and not use the information from the creator of the ‘made for profit’ item if it is good for us?
The website for ‘Apeel’ (to me) is just disgusting, lying about how good it is for us and our food. (I will not share that link here, if you are interested in seeing it just google ‘Apeel’.) Here is a quote from the website totally misleading about what it is made from and also that it is perfectly safe for even infants or the elderly to ingest. “Apeel is composed entirely of purified monoglycerides and diglycerides, edible compounds that can be found in a variety of foods. They are safe to eat as verified by regulatory authorities around the world, including Health Canada, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the World Health Organization (WHO). In fact, they are so safe they can be found in products designed for the most sensitive populations, including infant formula and nutrition shakes for the elderly.”
Now for the truth.
This comes directly from the FDA Papers about ‘Apeel’.
• Contains: Lead, Arsenic, Cadmium, Palladium, and Mercury
• Contains: Citric Acid which is almost always derived from GMO corn
• Contains: Soap, sodium oleate (yes, extra salt, sodium in your diet)
• Contains: Ethyl acetate, a flavoring agent, used in solvents, paints, lacquers, perfumes, and processed foods, which is toxic if ingested or inhaled
• Heptane: Used in test fuels, petroleum refinements, cements, and inks
• Contains: Toluene, a highly toxic chemical with a wide range of detrimental health effects when inhaled, swallowed, or when comes in contact with skin or eyes
Other Terrible Things about ‘Apeel’:
• Countries selling produce coated with Apeel include the United States, Canada, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Peru, Spain, Sweden, Norway, China, Australia, South Africa, Poland, and Japan.
• It cannot be washed off
• No information campaign or consent was ever done, they just quietly started spraying our food with this toxic substance
• This is a creation from Bill Gates, the same person who gave us GMOs
• Labeling laws vary from state to state and country to country
• It is made from diglycerides of fatty acids, which means it contains trans fats
Across America Editor’s note: APEEL is on and will be marketed as organic! It has secured the following partnerships:
• Nature’s Pride • Sage Fruit Co. • Del Monte • Eco Farms • Del Rey • Horton Fruit Co. • RV Aguacates • Alpine Fresh • Beta • Farm Direct Supply • La Venta • Stemilt • Sicar Farms
*This is a partial list
I hope everyone reading this is as outraged as I am that they are spraying our produce with this toxic substance and it was without letting the public have a voice about it. I do believe had they informed us or had a vote about this that ‘Apeel’ would have been rejected unanimously.
Moms Across America Editor’s note: Please sign our petition.
We will submit all signatures to the FDA and the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) to demand that Apeel conduct further testing on its products and suspend the uninformed application of Apeel coating on fresh fruits and vegetables, both conventional and organic—worldwide.
[Editor’s Note: The following review of the movie The Sound of Freedom is my perspective on it. If it happens to coincide with yours then please feel free to comment and/or share the url to this article with your friends and family. It appears the road to freedom is still long and winding.]
Last night my wife and I attended a showing of The Sound of Freedom at the Carib Theatre in Quesnel, B.C. Saw many local citizens there. By the time the movie started the theatre was close to full and I would guess there were about 200 people in attendance. That may seem small but the Carib theatre is a very old building and has never been expanded. Originally the owner had scheduled the movie for only two days beginning on the 12th but he now is running it for another few days plus having matinee showings on Saturday and Sunday.
Having read much of the negative criticism aimed at it beforehand on social media, including here on Twitter, I wanted to see it and get a sense of how it would affect me given my own experiences throughout the past 76 years walking through this valley of tears we call life on Earth.
The one thing that I also kept in mind was Mel Gibson’s involvement in the promotion of movie. Knowing Mel’s past and having viewed some of his movies over the years, including the classic Braveheart, I assured myself beforehand that the invective aimed at the movie might be based more on ignorance of Mel’s intentions than anything else.
The movie was intense from beginning to end. The emotive quality of it was professional to the nth degree and that, I believe, was the primary purpose of it. The acting, from the children to the adults, was superlative. Every tear drop that fell tore at one’s heartstrings. It was a 2 hour process of marinating the heart and it ended with text messages on the screen stating, among other things, that the United States of America was the epicentre of child trafficking with 1,500,000 children going missing every year. It also stated that there were more children today in captivity and slavery than at any other time in recorded history including the period of black slavery in the USA.
The message of the movie was blunt and clear. No solutions were proffered. The stone was turned over and the people were given the Truth. Now that we know it’s now up to us what we’ll do about it. To turn a blind eye is to be complicit.
Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither was the New World Order conspiracy. The Sound of Freedom revealed one of the foundational stones comprising the infrastructure of tyranny; one the world can no longer avoid facing. Seeing what was written upon it in blood and tears the fate of the world now rests in the hands of the freedom fighters who will take up the Sword of Truth and resist to the end and vanquish the perverse power of the evil now before us.
[Editor’s Note: A good friend from Switzerland just sent me the url to the following short video by David and Kim Martin. It’s an expose on the nascent beginnings of the mNRA vaccine and the players involved. What’s astounding is that it all began in my home province of British Columbia and is STILL being forced on the citizens of B.C. by the present NDP government headed by David Eby. The information that’s presented needs to be broadcasted across the country and those responsible for what’s gone on and is still going on must be called out and justice served. Please share this video as much as possible.]
