Captain Witold Pilecki's Aushwitz Report

Thanks to a Twitter follower named Tomek Kulpa, that I assume is either a Polish citizen or a Polish immigrant to the US, I received a link to Captain Witold Pilecki's first hand account of his time at Auschwitz. It was hand written by him in Polish and translated to English. It is an incredible read, and the fact he subjected himself to those horrors for the greater good of exposing what was really happening, is absolutely mind-blowing. I urge everyone to take the time to read it. I have it as a permanent link on the main page of this blog, and for convenience it is below.

Had Enough Yet, Kommiefornia?

So Californians, have you had enough yet? Just like in Massachusetts, a simple re-write of regulations and "POOF" you are now in possession of illegal firearms. Were they previously registered? Then you are on the list, for when the tyrant's obedient, oath-breaking, jack-booted goons come to your door at zero-dark-thirty for forced confiscation.

The "Bullet Button", once a compliance, is now "VERBOTTEN!"

It is not too late to salvage your Liberty, but it requires use of the Armed Civil Disobedience. As a refresher here are the requirements:


DEFY-DECEIVE-EVADE-RESIST-SMUGGLE-DEFEND

DO NOT participate in their new registration scheme. Years ago, long gun owners in the sewer that is NYC, were told they could possess their rifles and shotguns if they were registered. On November 18, 2013 gun owners in NYC began receiving notices like the one in this article. Whether they complied or not is unknown, I assume they did, probably by getting the guns out of the city. We here in the PSRK have certainly given a giant middle finger salute to Hartford in response to their post Sandy Hook gun control with an 85% non-compliance rate. 

People across America are fed up. Armed Civil Disobedience is alive and well in CT, NY, MA, MD, CO, WA, & OR. Michael Bloomberg and his band of misguided losers have been soundly defeated in ME and a couple of southern states after spending MILLIONS to try and influence referendums and elections to favor gun control. Now with Trump about to take office and promising restoration of our 2nd Amendment rights, the future looks much brighter. 

To those morons that think gun control is STILL the answer, I have but one word for you.....

The Captain on Twitter

Ever since its inception, I have shunned social media. In my own family, Fakebook has caused strife and separation. I find it mostly vapid and narcissistic. I mean, do you need to see what I had for lunch today? Maybe you'd like to see it again a few hours later floating in a toilet....hmmmm?

I have been on Twitter since June. It started off slow, but I now have over 500 followers, and growing every day. Since I don't use it to make money I refuse to "buy" blocks of followers, and am not yet "famous" enough to have the numbers like, say, a Lady Gaga. I gain my followers the old fashioned way. Someone likes or re-tweets a post, or if they follow me first, I follow back with very few exceptions. Those exceptions are people or organizations that are just selling something, like books, services, products, etc. I have a couple of followers that are reporters and authors, but along with occasionally promoting their books, they post conservative content I find interesting and agree with, and they will respond directly to me. That's another thing, I am not interested in having a Twitter war with some liberal nut, commie, SJW, or snowflake. I am on Twitter to dialogue with like minded folks, and from what I see there are lots of true American Patriots out there. It could be fun to get some hate, death threats, maybe targeting from Southern Poverty Law Center, but none yet. I have even poked at the SPLC, as well as certain asshole US Senators (Blumenthal, Murphy, Schumer, Warren, and McCain), and douche-bags in Hollyood (Lena Dunham, Michael Moore, Rosie O'Donnell, Madonna) but I am just small fry. For now. Twitter is why my posting on this blog has slowed from the fever pitch of the earlier days. But I will not abandon it, I use both, and when I post new content here, I tweet a link to the blog and get reader traffic that way. Tweets are limited to 140 characters. You can get away with more if you create text in a .jpg and add it to your post as a photo. If I have much more to say, it will be here.

If you are so inclined to join Twitter, do as I do and PLEASE use a pseudonym. Unless you want to personally be attacked, threatened, or possibly lose a job, do not EVER use your real name. Leave that to the narcissistic Hollywood types or politicians. You can find me on Twitter at @witold_pilecki  Only a couple of people actually know I am on Twitter and even fewer know my true identity, and I see no reason to change that.

Saturday Breakfast Post - Carried in a GFDZ...AGAIN!

As regular readers know, I am an active participant in the Armed Civil disobedience. This has many elements, one of which is the ignorance of the GFDZ (Gun-Free Death Zone) designation. Here in the liberal utopia that is the PSRK, that designation carries the force of law without the stringent requirements of other states, and it is a felony. I always carry concealed, and pay particular attention to the different parts of personal defense carry; weather/climate, wardrobe, geographical location, high crime area, activity I am participating in, etc. I ensure that no one will know I am carrying unless the time comes to draw my weapon and defend myself.

Last night, my adult daughter and I attended a performance at The Bushnell Performing Arts Center in Hartford. It was a 7:30 PM showing of the Monty Python classic "The Holy Grail", followed by a personal appearance and Q & A with John Cleese. The movie is one of our all time favorites, and John Cleese was very funny, and we gained insight into the Monty Python troupe that we never had. A couple of times, he made disparaging comments about Trump and the election in general, but he is a Brit...so I figured since he is a British "subject" and not a "citizen" it probably did not make a lot of sense to him what really happened on November 8th. I did notice though, that he never mentioned Killary or the thought she might be better, so I also think he said what he said more for the comedy aspect. He did also speak to the Brexit situation, and did not really have anything good to say about the EU, so how bad can he really be?

The Bushnell is located in the capitol area, right on the edge of the high crime/drug-infested Frog Hollow neighborhood, and next to Bushnell Park. Crime can come at you from two different directions. Parking for the Bushnell is either on the streets, or in the parking lots for all the state buildings in the immediate area. Parking is free, however, you will be walking on the streets to get to the theater. Is that somewhere an individual such as myself is going to go defenseless? No. A little over a year ago, the Bataclan Theater in Paris was attacked by jihadi gunmen. Was I going to be trapped in theater defenseless. HELL NO! The Bushnell has an "All Weapons Forbidden" policy, clearly stated when you purchase tickets. What I wasn't sure of, is whether they would be searching or have metal detectors at the door. I got there early enough to scope it out, and if they did, decide whether I would not see the show, or return to my truck and secure (which I can) my firearm. It turns out, they do not check! The weapon of choice last night was my Ruger SR9c, carried IWB at the small of my back, and one spare mag in a carrier on my left rear hip. While I really wanted my Glock 21 in .45 ACP with TWO extra mags, that would have been too difficult with the small theater seats. I would have had to keep my coat on the whole time to remain concealed. It would not have been comfortable at all. The SR9c and magazine was tucked under my pullover and remained out of sight. My daughter did not know for sure I was carrying, however, she knows me well, and I'm sure she figured I was. We have not discussed it, and it really isn't necessary.

Everyone has to do what is best for them. I encourage those of you, brave and responsible enough to do as I do, ignore the GFDZ designation and carry everywhere. I have been carrying almost daily since 1983. The only time I ever drew a handgun for possible defense (did not fire) was at my own front door. It is for the good of yourself, loved ones, everyone around you, and the nation.
