Meaning of the III Percent

I am a III Percent Patriot.

Those before me who were known by this title took the field against the King and fought to repel the tyranny of the Crown. We had the support of many in the Colonies, but only about three percent of us took to the fields of battle with the arms of the Militiaman.

It is my turn to stand against Evil.

3 Percent. III Percent. Threepers. III'pers.

I am the Militia. I am the defender of my republic against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Mine is the final recourse, the final appeal, the final line of defense of Liberty. I am there, when words have failed.

Collectivist politics and the deliberate perversion of the Constitution are murdering the country, practiced by both major political parties, our Courts, and sadly by many of our Countrymen.

Our Government is not the problem, it is men who use Government as a vehicle for their crimes against humanity that offends the republic.

Treason exists in every institution of our Government.

Our Founding Principles are mocked and destroyed by those who would be our Masters. Our Countrymen are murdered by the State for exercising their Rights. Families are taxed and regulated into starvation. Our national defenses are lowered, making us vulnerable to the predations of the tyrannies of the world. Our Citizens are treated like criminals, while criminals and murderous terrorists are given the Rights due Citizens. Our military is abused for political agendas. The most elite and sophisticated Criminal Class in the history of the world has been granted license to steal from my Countrymen and they are beyond the law. The moral fabric of Americans is under deliberate, systematic assault by those who benefit from an immoral and amoral society. We are all enslaved to the criminal Political Class who consider us as nothing more than laborers for their every whim.

This I can not abide.

I prefer political discourse and mechanisms as established by our Founders and Framers as the means to recover our national Soul. I will fight in the political realm, and I pray we are never forced to Second Amendment remedies for the ultimate defense of our country and our lives.

The life of the republic, my beloved America, is worth more than my own life. I will defend her at all costs.

I am an American. I am a Militiaman.

Where I stand, my Countrymen are safer by my presence.

Where I go, the enemies of my republic are in peril.

Traitors fear me, with cause.

For my republic, if I must, I will fight, kill and die.

By intellect, rifle, pistol, hatchet and knife and hands.

By any means necessary.

All men die.

How we die, matters.

I will save the republic.

For I am a III Percent Patriot.

The Garrote

New garrote offered through III Gear, made in America.
The garrote is a silent killer for the Patriot who needs to take advantage of a sudden opportunity, or has an OSS-style targeted mission that requires stealth and tradecraft.

A few realities about the garrote as a weapon: You will get wet.  Lots of blood, especially if you are using wire - which I personally prefer.  Rope is a strangulation weapon.  Wire is a cutting weapon.  If you have never trained in flexible weapons, find a martial artist or old-school spy with the requisite background and ask for a special course program.

OSS Issue: Preferred T-Handle design
If you succeed in getting close enough to employ the garrote, and you are smart enough to use wire, please use T-handles on the ends.  Some people sell versions with rings for you to pull tight, but you are then having to concentrate all of your force on single points.  Much better to spread your strength along a 3 inch stick/steel rod.

Next - people who suddenly feel a garrote around their neck will whig the F out - especially if they are trained and they know what is coming.  If they are not trained, you'll have to deal with the startle response and panic. If they are trained, they are going to try to get fingers (best case for you) or something steel between the garrote and their neck (worst case for you), and counter-attack violently.  So, get that weapon looped FAST and cinched even FASTER.  Either way, pull that soon-to-be dead Enemy of Liberty away from anything he can kick against for leverage. They may also try to flip you over their head or execute a shoulder throw - be ready for it. Defenses against the garrote attack are limited, and by necessity, extremely vigorous and violent.

Next, assuming you get his neck clean, or even with a few fingers, pull with everything you've got.  Wire will start digging in and cutting meat. But make no mistake - you've got to use strength.
Less optimal ring design

Understand he is going to thrash, kick, reach for a pistol or knife.  Be ready to defeat these attempts.  First move, kick the back of his knee and take him to a manageable height.  If he is still reaching to pull that knife and gut you or pistol to shoot you, be in a position to block that hand with the bottom of your boot.  You won't have to hang on long - but it'll seem like forever the first time you have to do it.  If it is available to you (he's not reaching for a weapon, he's locked on the primal instinct trying to reach the garrote as it cuts) put a knee in his back and arch him backward - not so much that he falls - you want to stay on your feet for defensive reasons. 

If you have done everything right, as I have instructed above, you'll have an unconscious target in a few seconds - 3 to 8, usually.  He'll be dead in under a minute if he bleeds out.  He may have a few fingertips on the ground, because your garrote will cut through them easily.  You will have cut through his windpipe (no screams) and you will have cut through his carotids - hence the bloody mess, but the quick blackout.

If mission parameters call for it, drag him out of sight.  If mission parameters call for it (like you have to blend back into public after this caper) have spare clean clothes you can slip into to avoid the blood.  If mission parameters call for it, dump his seeping corpse in the middle of the street as Fair Warning to other Commies in your AO.

III Gear is now offering a well-built garrote (pictured above) with your choice of ABS or aluminum T-handles and a micro-braided 23" wire.  The III logo is engraved on each end of the T-handles.  A special training program is offered free with every garrote sold.  Of course, it is made in America and comes with a lifetime warranty.

For a limited time the III Percent Society is offering a free garrote to all new and renewing Members who sign-up for a single payment membership.  If it is time to renew your membership, get your garrote free!

III Arms Christmas Raffle: Winner!!!

Jay Y. in Ohio - you won!

You are now the owner of the final III Arms Minuteman-15 Founders Edition!

Jay bought five tickets (as did a few Patriots) and Holly pulled one of your tickets out of the box about 5 minutes ago.

Congratulations, and Merry Christmas!!

All you have to do now is contact III Arms President Jim Miller and give him the information for your preferred FFL, and your rifle will be on the way.

Our sincere thanks to everyone who helped support III Arms and the 527 with this raffle.  I truly wish we were able to send every single one of you a rifle.  Without your help and support, we couldn't truly accomplish anything for Liberty.  All of you make this possible.  There will be a few dollars left over after the 527 pays III Arms for the rifle, and those dollars will be used to help continue our 2A work!

Congratulations again, Jay!

Merry Christmas to every Patriot!

III Congress: First Order of Business

The III Congress has been dormant, partly because I have simply been too busy to devote the time needed, but also because it became important to me that as many of us as possible meet face-to-face before undertaking such a serious political venture.  We began at King's Mountain, and we continue every single month to meet more of you.  Surely we have not all had the chance to meet, yet.  But enough of us have had the opportunity to shake hands that I am now comfortable moving forward. 

Make no mistake, the III Congress will stand as a threat to the Enemies of Liberty, and they will come hard against us if they ever think we have traction - and I can tell you from my recent travels and meeting with Patriots across the country, we already have traction.

For all things there is a proper time - and the time for the III Congress has arrived.

The III Congress needs to serve as our collective political voice.  Like our Founders who met to discuss the Declaration, those men who essentially served as a shadow government to chart a political course for Liberty and to speak with a political voice (as opposed to the Sons of Liberty who spoke with direct action).  It is our turn.  We must be the Americans who begin to speak once more of the values originally embodied in the Declaration, and further put forth in our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

The III Congress is specifically a Constitutionalist body.  This is not a negotiation.  To hold a position as a Delegate in the III Congress for your AO, you must sincerely hold Restoration of our Founding Documents as the goal.  This is not the forum to debate anarchy versus Articles of Confederation versus Spooner.  The members of the III Congress are genuine "Oath Keepers", sworn to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

"Which Constitution?" some may legitimately ask.  My position is that the III Congress should stand firmly upon the US Constitution as ratified, including the Bill of Rights.  That is the "Reset" position.  That is when everything remained clean, pre-Marbury when the Judiciary seized the unconstitutional power of Judicial Review and began immediately perverting the Founders Intent. 

I contend that every Amendment passed after RevWarII (aka the Civil War) was done by fraud and deceit and duress imposed by the threat of violence from Washington DC for any State that dared to object.  Remember that Washington DC essentially decided who would govern the defeated southern states, and the threat of further violence was very real if the south failed to rubber-stamp the Amendments put forth.  All Amendments from the 13th forward fall under the "imposed under duress" standard, as far as I am concerned.

What of the 11th and 12th Amendments, which were passed legitimately, without duress?  I contend that "The Message" of seeking "Restoration, as ratified" is "cleanest" and the easiest to promote to a low-information public, and for those who truly believe in Liberty, as ratified gives us the starting position the Founders and Framers intended.  So, once we "reset" to an as ratified state, the current 11th and 12th Amendments may be re-submitted to the States for consideration.

What about the strawman arguments that will be hurled (from within and without the Liberty Movement by anti-Constitutionalists) that "as ratified" will suddenly return women to chattel status and return Black folks to slavery?  This one is so simple and basic I have to accuse ANYONE who takes that position as an argument against "as ratified" as being intellectually dishonest.  There is not a single State or Commonwealth in America that does not have laws on the books that forbid treating women as chattel and forbid slavery, and those laws trump even the Constitution, for they are Natural Rights.  When you see someone dismiss "as ratified" with that argument, you are either talking to an absolute idiot, or an intellectually dishonest Human Being who is trying to simply defeat the Restoration of Liberty through demagoguery. 

Once we "Reset" to an as ratified state, our first goal must be to prevent the immediate usurpation of power once again by SCOTUS.  Our Founders and Framers never intended SCOTUS to be the final arbiter of what is, and is not, Constitutional.  It is by this fraud that all federal corruption has come forth, as we were warned would happen by Thomas Jefferson himself.  If the Framers intended the Supreme Court to be the ultimate power in the land, the Constitution would have been a much shorter document.

Note: My position on "as ratified" is not a diktat.  It is an opinion I hold strongly, one we should discuss if we must, and come to a consensus.  My position, however, that the III Congress only permit Constitutionalists as Delegates is written in stone.  Obviously, I have no power to enforce such a demand, other than to walk away from the Congress - which I will do if it ever becomes anything other than a Constitutionalist endeavor.

Becoming a Delegate is easy: Commit to $10/month for good standing as a full Delegate from your State.  Why a fee?  Because having a bit of skin in the game is a premise our Founders understood, and it is a proven method of accomplishing tasks.  Remember when there were rules in place about only land owners being permitted to vote?  All we have to do today is look around to see what happens when you let "anyone" vote - they start voting themselves freebies and favors that are detrimental to the republic.  The monthly $10 fee is not only symbolic.  It costs money to promote an organization.  It costs money to publish and advertise.  It will cost money when one of our Delegates gets arrested and needs a legal defense fund.  At $10/month the treasury will not fill deep or fast, but it is a starting point.  There is a link on the sidebar to PayPal to sign up as a Delegate.  Once you have handled the PayPal part of the equation, email us and we will add you to the map on the top of the page.  Our goal is to have at least one Delegate in every State - and then to add more members until we have genuine delegations in each and every State.

Where shall we begin?  At the beginning.  We have a Mission Statement: Restoration.

Now we need to consider a realistic plan to achieve the mission.

Gary Hunt wrote a paper several years ago that I recently featured at the III blog.  Mr. Hunt took the time and energy to write a serious paper that is reasonable and closely tied to our Founders ideals.  Additionally, he has taken the time to serve a Historian's role by documenting where our Founders and Framers faced similar problems to which we have today, and how they resolved those issues.

As I have said many times: We already have a roadmap, a blueprint, for Restoration.  We do not need to re-invent the wheel.  This was done already by our Founders and the original III Patriots.

Below is a link to Mr. Hunt's piece.  It is a serious paper and it will require that you invest some time and mental energy to reading it.  As I said in my original post on this piece, there are nits that can be picked with his plan.  We can pick them together after everyone has read it, completely.  Then together we can settle on a version that works for the III Congress.

Note: I do not enjoy the role of GateKeeper, but it is one I must accept at this point.  To comment on this blog you must be a Delegate in good standing.  Period.  If you signed up with PayPal and skipped a payment, they dropped you from the system.  If PayPal got an NSF from your bank card, they dropped you from the system.  They don't check back next month to see if you have fixed your bank account.  So, if you need to fix your standing, please do so.  If you submitted your dues in another form, we've got you covered on a spreadsheet HK keeps.  (You'll note on the sidebar that Silver Eagles, checks, et cetera are alternatives to PayPal for those who choose.  No "junk" silver, please.)

Here is the link to Mr. Hunt's site with the paper.

Here is the direct link to his paper in PDF.

Read it, then let's discuss what works for us, and what does not - then let's go out into the world and start slapping Marxist/Leftist/FSA/Blue/Red snouts with it.

One final note: The III Congress is an organization that intends to go into Harm's Way in the political spectrum.  Delegates will be targets.  Delegates will get their hands dirty.  If you simply want to be part of a debate club - this is not the place for you.

III Congress: King's Mountain

We met, some for the first time and some knew each other from other events.  It was a wonderful and patriotic group.

Alan led us through an excellent tour of the King's Mountain battlefield, and I commend to you all the story, for you will see many, many facets that have relevance for III Patriots today.  Here is the wiki link to the story as a starting point.

I am personally proud that I have added several people to the list of those I am proud to have met.

Delegates: I will order a batch of III Congress tabs and send one to each Delegate in good standing.  It'll be a month or so (usual turnaround) for them to make it to my shop, then I'll ship them out to you.

We all agreed that as a deliberative body our first official act should be a resolution that outlines our purpose and intent.  Over the next week I will compile a list of Delegates and we will begin a private email thread so we can work on our first resolution, refine it, and then publish.

We also agree that a very important goal to achieve is to have at least one Delegate from each state, and we'd be very pleased with delegations of multiple members from each state. 

We will need a formal structure, Patriots who will serve in important capacities to ensure the Congress evolves into the vibrant and effective entity we all want it to become.  We will work on this in private, as well.

For now, I am proud that we had our first meeting, and every single person in attendance was a Patriot committed to genuine Liberty.

There was general agreement that another meeting should be held out west in the near future, in a place that will be convenient for our Patriots who live west of the Mississippi.  For those of you who live in the western part of the country, please weigh in and offer suggestions for a location.  Personally, I really enjoyed and appreciated the relevance of King's Mountain, and hope we can find an equally relevant location for our next meeting.

Thank you to everyone who made it, and to everyone who wanted to be there.

I am convinced the III Congress can make a difference.

Any Delegates who would like access to this blog so you may write posts, please send an email to me and I'll add you to the access list:

Delegate: Idaho

III: April 19, 2013

Alan is familiar with King's Mountain and has taken point for getting us started on the 19th.

Muster Point: We'll meet at the Chronicle markers at the northeastern end of King's Mountain at 10:00am on April 19th. It is the start of the path around the mountain to the right of the bookstore/museum.

Alan will lead us on a tour of the battlefield and the significance of the story is relevant to us all in these days when America needs Her Patriots.

We can remain at the battlefield for a while and talk, then head to Charlotte for lunch.  We can do this in small groups, as a single group, or everyone can go their own way.

Alan has suggested a restaurant named Ri' Ra' for us to meet for dinner, where we can continue our discussions and generally get to know one another.

Personally I have no agenda for the weekend, beyond meeting you and working with you to begin to flesh out the role of the Congress that we can take online to finalize with our Delegates who can't make the trip.  This is a networking opportunity, a chance to build trust and add to our personal security by growing our network.  Everyone should consider the floor to be open for any topic they wish to discuss.

Firearms: I do NOT know what firearms laws obtain and if you are planning to carry, figure it out. 

Media: It is possible media may be there, so be prepared for that possibility.

Saturday Morning: We can discuss if people want to get together Saturday for breakfast.  I will be getting on the highway Saturday by noonish.

If you are planning to attend, please leave a note on this thread.  I know a few people have had to change plans, and no one should feel bad if life's realities are keeping you from attending.

III Congress

Please leave a comment on this thread and let us know if you will be at King's Mountain on April 19th.

Also let us know if you will be alone, +1, +2, whatever.

We need a final, realistic idea of how many intend to show up.  Or is it better to keep our discussions and declaration online only.

Thank you all.

April 19th King's Mountain

Will you be there, or not?

The poll is at right. --->

Be honest, folks.  Commit, one way or the other so we know the deal.

Right now I know people intend to travel from Florida, WV and DC.

That's a long trip and a lot of money that could be spent elsewhere, so if you intend to be there, stand up and let us know.  If you can't make it, say it.  No foul if you can't make it, but we need to know what to expect.

You are the Resistance.

Get it?

I will be there.
