Intelligence Report From Virginia

BY Herschel Smith
4 years, 5 months ago


You need to check out the laws that they intend to pass once this new congress is sworn in January in Virginia. I’ll provide the link here….

Basically I will be breaking the law if I transport my rifles to my cabin when I go. My neighbors, what few I have near my cabin, are arming up and buying magazines, ammo, anything they can get their hands on. Now these folks are well armed already but they are stocking up. They have no intention of turning anything in and are willing to fight for their right to bear arms.

Since NCRenegade is a trusted source of information, I consider this to be a good sitrep on the state of thinking of at least some Virginians.  I think this modest conclusion would meet the requirements of good intel?

    Virginia went blue largely due to immigration. But just think of all the benefits to the economy and how culturally enriched the citizens are in Virginia are now. Gun rights are a small price to pay for all the benefits.

    If we can just immigrate a lot more orks from the Badlands we can even have a better economy and even more culture enrichment. As George Bush would say you can’t have too much.

    The “Do. Not. Comply.” movement has done pretty well in NY, MD, CA and especially CT.
    But so far the Lords of our salvation have not had the wherewithal to commit to wholesale banning AND confiscation.
    I wonder what the spark will be? If an order comes to turn in instead of register, does that change the non-compliance equation?

    Ned2. Unfortunately we may find out soon.

    All of those feckless derp state bureaucrats will improvementate Virginia.
    The vibrant diverse enrichers will mow the lawns and clean the McMansions or the cargo cult goodies from Uncle Sugar will cease.
    The MSG/Aspartame diet, McHealthcarez, social media drool bucket and teevee will weed out the weak.
    Solo, secret, spontaneous, always.

    Fam, it’s entirely possible, even likely, that the Virginia voting contest was stolen:

    I’ve been observing this potential for this fraud ever since I became aware of Black Box Voting videos 10 years ago.

    Reminds me of that old adage about who counts the votes.

    Looks like we can’t count on the ballot box or the jury box.

    Looks like we’re down to one box. YMMV, but plan accordingly.

    The old sticker/ad campaign that was “Virginia is for lovers with a heart needs to be updated.

    The new campaign will be “Virginia is for lover and patriots” will take it’s place,a heart with a AR/AK/M1,you get the idea ,your choice of firearm.

    Once things get sporty, I wonder how many patriots in the other 47 CONUS states will see the Virginia field exercises as a good place to get some real practice. We in the Old Dominion may get a lot of visitors from all sides of the coming semi-covert battles for freedom. That forcibly disassembling Toyota on Broad St. may not be home-grown, if you know what I mean.

    Much like in what 1990s Bosnia served as a live training ground for other future combat operations. Chechnya, too.

    The action will take place in the non-2A Sanctuary counties, too. Wait for that list to be finalized and you’ll now have the AOs defined.

    FedGov will also be drawn in, especially when the regional electric lines go down and cuts power to NoVa and their own area operations. This state also has one of the largest contingents of retired USG special operations personnel, too. They will bring certain skills sets to bear against tyranny. They took an oath, and know they can get away with it, too.

    This will spread, too. Virginia is not alone in its complaints. We are all too connected nowadays.

    The Marxists are absolutely mad for even attempting any of this. They are certifiably deranged. No sane man would want any of this to occur anywhere in the United States.

    @Posh; I’m guessing it will be mostly local and rather low key at the start. They will pass thier laws in the new year in rapid sucession. There will be legal challenges, as they are clearly unconstitutional. The State will look around for some easy targets to test out the least controversial of the new laws, probably red flag confiscations on prominent individuals. When they pass a ban and confiscation law I am betting that they hold of for a year or more before trying to stage any confiscations for those weapons specifically and try to get as many as they can with the red flag raids and an ongoing amnesty turn in grace period and a series of buyback events. Anyone caught with prohibited weapons in the early raids will be mercilessly prosecuted as an example to stampede the casual non-compliers. The extent of the ongoing sanctuary movement is a good indicator and if the majority of the rural counties in the state sign on it could very well undo all of the enemies short term disarmement goals as it will be extremely difficult to do the red flag raids or anything more ambitious without local law enforcement co-operation. The long term effect will still remain that you cannot purchase these weapons in the State openly any longer and it will take formal repeal of those laws or a Supreme Court victory to correct. The Sanctuary movement holds good promise if the local militia can keep tabs on the local law enforcement. This means having good relationships with them. Perhaps having them as members or at least friends on the local level and maintaining an ongoing surviellance on thier activities on a daily basis to include a radio watch on thier frequencies. If this happens in enough areas, it will be obvious that law enforcement cannot act without bringing in large forces from outside of local areas, which is something that should also be anticipated and watched for. These conditions, if they come to pass, could prevent the situation from escalating into open conflict unless the Governor insists on escalating it. Should it in fact go hot. I presume there will be a geat deal of cross border support from adjacent states like Tennessee, W. Virginia, etc, where people can operate against Virginia forces without being too far from home. As you point out, by then the Feds will have found an excuse to intervene.

    People need to get it through their heads that the war is on already. So you’re going to keep waiting for the Reds to advance in their attack before you do anything about it? Is the worst tactics I’ve ever seen or heard of. They are coming they will come they will bring outside forces if necessary or they will co-opt law-enforcement into red flagging and confiscating your weapons. don’t trust local law-enforcement. I suggest you forcibly have a conversation with your local sheriffs and deputies about exactly what would happen to them if they tried. These are Serious times for serious men. Think Bracken scenarios You better start thinking about what you’re going to do about it or just turn them in now. Bend over and take it in the ass. WW Sun Tzu do right now?

    Pre-emptive action on an imminent attack may be a good tactic, if you have a marshalling force in a vulnerable assembly area and the sufficient motivated and capable forces to inflict casualties on it at better than even odds. It is possible that such a situation is good tectics while at the same time being poor strategy. The new legislature has not even been sworn in yet, let alone passed any laws. I expect that they will do as they have indicated they will, but to literally launch offensive attacks at this juncture would probably cost the movement the moral high ground and all the logical ramifacations that would go along with being the agressor. No, war is not here yet. It is perilousy close, but it is not here yet. I dont think most persons committed or inclined to join our side are prepared to go into the field at this point and start operations against a potential enemy that has not even been mobilized or given marching orders yet. The sanctuary movement still holds great promise of forging local bonds and getting the local sherrifs engaged in upholding the Constitution. They will understand that they are being watched and that there is a price to be paid for betrayal. If you simply threaten them in advance before the laws are passed you will likely turn them against any sanctuary declaration and motivate them to mark you down for early enforcement.

    I dont live in Virginia or the immediate area and I will not be commuting to take part in any activities there. I expect to have my hands full here with my own local communists if it gets that bad, and anything beyond a weeks walking distance is someone else’s AO. This is something for the local population to decide for themselves how to respond to. The worst case scenario may be likely at this point, but our side still has a few cards to play and they are making progress at it in the rural counties of the Old Dominion. I think Sun Tzu would probably agree it is better to win without fighting at all if there is still a chance of that. There will always be time for the last resort.

    Mike, thanks for your thoughts. Discussions like this are always helpful for casual readers to understand the entire situation. We would never get such frank utility from our useless media, who have devolved almost in pure propagandists. (For those who are supposedly over-educated and “our betters,” they really are stupid people.)

    Three parting thoughts for the holidays on standard 4GW tactics and methods:

    1. Initial targets will not be the political classes. They will be the media. There’s almost no protection for them, and a loss will be noticeable across the board and will send a very nasty opening message. There will be time enough for responsibility to be delivered to deserving others, since the return response will be outrage, not contemplation.

    2. Someone will ultimately realize that an easy way to send a very large message to those guilty of starting this is to withdraw electric power to large regions. Think of it as a long-range “Big Bertha” strike on Paris, delivered from rural to urban areas. Only this one just requires knocking down the right 100 kV line. Or 30 of them in the middle of a Virginia night. I know a couple of hundred Dominion Energy linesmen may disagree with the Governor’s signature and know the system better than any reporter (or others) would ever know. You only need a few men to make the world’s news, and a weeks-long outage in NoVa will discredit the remaining propagandists about state strength. No one will believe them. Terms may be offered.

    3. Much of the world’s Internet is routed through Ashburn and Chantilly. That was poor planning by DoD. YMMV on neighboring server farms and their connections, let along a voluminous reserve power requirement. Someone under 30 will be creative; they know the world is watching and the sane ones are cheering for Liberty.

    Hopefully similar sane Democrats in the Virginia Senate will receive briefings from the VSP VDEM and the VA ARNG about how exposed the state is to these kinds of disruptions, and offer better alternatives for Governor “Coonman” to sign, a weak, self-absorbed man who hasn’t a clue about what he is doing.

    What an absolute fool he is for letting it get this far. Which staffer of his recommended this course of action for him to take should be arrested for sedition.

    As a Virginian I’m curious as to why everyone is worried about NoVa. The major source of our problems will be in Richmond. You aim for the head of the snake, not the tail.
