Is There Anybody Out There? Part 2: Answering the Call
Author’s note: A few weeks ago, I wrote an article postulating my belief about an underground organization of patriots forming in cells across the country in preparation for the expected usurpation of the 2024 election. That article, Is There Anybody Out There?, Part 1, is available on my blog, Reality Cheques: Is There Anybody Out There?

What can I expect when I join my fellow patriots in an armed resistance to the current tyrannical, evil, deep-state-controlled regime?
In short; hardship, chaos and hell.
I end every podcast with the words: “Remember, we’re all in this together. We have to take care of each other. Nobody stands alone.”
Everyone is watching the Indictment of Trump, knowing it’s a ploy by the established government to get him out of the presidential race in 2024. I wrote an article a few weeks back stating I believe an underground organization is forming to deal with the aftermath of the 2024 election. I haven’t heard from them and, probably, neither have you; but they’re out there, forming one small pocket at a time. When we all finally come together, our evil government will know the real meaning of insurrection. Remember, a revolution is an insurrection until it’s successful.
Being successful in such an endeavor will require teamwork and cooperation. I can’t do it by myself and neither can anybody else. We have to work together. Sure, we can all be doing our own thing, for now. But when the time comes, we will each have to become part of a larger whole to make the changes that need to happen. It’s not going to be easy and it’s not going to be pretty.
This job falls to us because nobody is coming to save us. We have to do it ourselves.
When we get the call to join our fellow patriots in stopping the rise of tyranny from our national leadership, we need to be ready. Keep in mind, I’m not an expert on wilderness survival or grand overall strategy. I was a Staff Sergeant and a journalist in the military. So I’m vaugely familiar with small unit tactics, command structure and supply chains. As such, I can only tell you what I’m doing to be ready for the call. Anybody reading this who has better ideas, get them out there so we’re all on the same page in dealing with what is sure to be a horrific, frightening, bloody fight for survival.
Here’s what I think we need, as a minimum, to be ready:
At Home: Have an emergency food and water supply. Individual needs will depend on who you have to take care of in addition to yourself. If I get the call to aid the effort, I’m going to want to make sure my family is taken care of while I’m gone. Take care of your family, be prepared for at least a month without any source of food, water or power when they’re told to “shelter in place.” Or, when the government uses your family as a weapon against you.
What if I don’t make it back? Better have a plan for that, too.
Those who answer the call: At the beginning, I believe it’ll be bring what ya got.
I recommend every individual intending to respond have the following:
Handgun: 9mm or 45 ACP with two or three spare clips and as much ammo as you think you can carry on your person for five miles. Probably 50 rounds.
Semi-automatic rifle: Chambered in a standard round, 7.62x39 mm or 5.56x45 mm and as many rounds of ammunition you think you can carry for five miles. Assuming a 20-30 round magazine, three loaded mags, one in the weapon and two spares, and enough to reload each one time. Somewhere between 120 and 180 rounds. (I just ran into this article on preparing for rifleman duty. The author says have 6 or 7 mags. As a Marine tactical instructor, he’s probably more right than I am. Research and practice, people.)
Shotgun: For home use. A pump or semi-automatic 12-gauge shotgun and as many rounds of 01 or 00 buckshot ammunition you can afford. This weapon stays at home with your family. Make sure you’re family understands how it works and knows how to use it. Don’t just go over it with them one afternoon and think it’ll be good to go. Take them out and have them practice with it as many times as possible. That goes for you, too. Be familiar with your weapons. Ensure they’re sighted for accuracy, cleaned and well-maintained. Practice so that you know how the weapon reacts, how you react to the weapon and can swap mags, clear jams and transport it safely.
Backpack: You’ll want a military grade backpack and, probably, a tactical vest or belt. The average weight of the gear carried by U.S. Marine Infantry is between 100 and 135 pounds. That’s a hell of a load. And we’re not Marines, are we? (Not all of us, anyway. I was in the Air Force!)
You’re going to have to carry your own weight. You’ll want enough food, water and clothing for three days. An emergency medical kit. Some good boots: Not tennis shoes or slip on comfort soles. Good, leather, lace-up, water-resistant boots. Whatever else you decide will be necessary; remember, you're going to carry it. Don’t bring canned goods. They’re heavy, noisy and unwieldy. Buy some MREs from the local surplus store, or order some online.
And, practice. Don’t put your kit together and shove it in a closet thinking you’re good to go. You are not. Spend some weekends and afternoons carrying all of it. Walk a mile wearing it. Evaluate your performance, make necessary changes, and do it again. I understand it may be problematic to walk around the neighborhood armed like a stormtrooper. I drive to a friend’s farm 30 miles away to do my thing. Because of that, I also know someone who thinks and practices just like me.
Enough lecturing. Anyone who doesn’t get the picture by now doesn’t want to.
We’re going to have to save ourselves.
Trump will either win or lose the next election, but we’re the team that’s going to have to solve the actual problem. If he loses, it’s sure to be because of cheating, just like in 2020. Only better, because they really know how to do it, now. If he wins, the deep state will deploy their terrorist cells of Antifa, BLM and anybody else they have on the payroll to start burning, looting and murdering. We will have to deal with that, as well, because there’s nobody else to do it.
Which brings up one last thing. They will come for you and your family. Our evil government now has more armed agents than we have troops in the Marine Corps. They have a good reason for all that firepower: You and me.
When I go, I can only assume they will come for my family. I do not take this as a reason not to answer the call; It is the reason I’m going to answer. I fully expect my bank accounts to be locked. My pensions to be stopped. My water and power to be cut off. And my family to harrassed, interrogated and possibly even kidnapped and interred because I’m willing to put myself on the line to fight tyranny.
I don't write these things to scare people. You should already be scared, knowing that your government doesn't give a single flying fartcicle about you. We're nothing to them but revenue streams and slave labor. Knowing that if you don't toe the line and do as you're told, you're considered part of the problem and will be corrected or eliminated.
If the government we pay to protect and defend us is so degenerate, immoral, and evil that they will go after the families of people who disagree with them, then that’s not the government we want. It’s time to change it.
And don’t think that they don’t know who you are and where you live: You have a mailbox.
