Welcome to SecureTheseRights
The name, as most of you know, comes from what I consider one of the great documents of human history, a true watershed, in which our forefathers asserted, and soon after established by force of arms, fundamental principles of Divine Law that underlie the great experiment in freedom under God that we call the United […]
Brief Intro to TACTICAL CIVICS™ Please note, although I held the title of “co-founder” of the TC mission for several years, in February of 2022 David Zuniga the founder excommunicated me from his organization because of a disagreement about how to recruit militia into it, and nothing I say should be construed as representing the […]
Is Militia a Gang?
I participated recently in a long and thoughtful online discussion on a forum frequented by people interested or involved in the “militia movement”. My contributions and positions are clearly identified. The other participants only by initials, which may not be their own. We can clearly see the broad divide between the notion that our institutional […]
1871, et cetera
I was very glad to be getting acquainted with a brother in the movement today, who brought up a point, versions of which I hear often, and want to address. That is the idea that our Constitution is somehow no longer in force, having been supplanted by some act in 1871 that altered our form […]
Does Dillon Rule?
Does “Dillon” Rule? The Tactical Civics plan to recognize, regulate, and support Militia by Ordinance on the County or municipal level, is objected to by some on the ground that localities do not have the lawful power to do it, because it violates a principle called, “Dillon’s Rule”. In 1868, Michigan Supreme Court Chief Justice […]
Scripture on Submission: Romans Chapter 13
I am no preacher. I have more questions than answers. But I am grateful beyond expressing to God, for all He has given me. Much of those gifts are simply things to delight in. The morning sunlight, or the life-restoring rain. The taste of food. The beauty of flowers. The companionship of those I love. […]
Do You Want It The Hard Way?
Do You Want it the Hard Way? We have been saying over and over, for years now, in slightly different forms, that the restoration of our Republic is law enforcement. Law enforcement. You know, what we grew up thinking was exclusively the cops’ job, and no business of ours. Has everyone noticed that all over […]
The Great Inversion
The Great Inversion Where does it come from, anyway, this pervasive, persistent thing we call government, this thing that seems to many as essential as air, the solution of every problem, the problem in every solution, that regulates, confabulates, supports, deports, redresses, oppresses, wheels, deals, and steals? One may imagine that a very long time […]
The following essay I wrote and delivered on one of Tactical Civics’s Sunday conference calls. They always open with a prayer, which I include here. Dear God, we are gathered in your sight..of course we are never out of your sight, nor do we wish to be. Maybe I should say, we ask Your special […]
International Day of Protest, Brotherhood, and Boycott
International Day of Brotherhood, Protest, and Boycott Someone posted a lengthy and bountifully-illustrated announcement of a globally-coordinated event, intended to straighten it all out. Protests all around the world, a five-day boycott of, well, everything, since it all comes from those wicked global corporationsI That’ll show ’em, by Golly! I hate to piss on anyone’s […]
Contra Con-con I strongly oppose the proposed “Convention of States”, “Con-Con, or any wholesale revison of our federal Constitution, for a number of reasons. First, our Constitution already contains numerous important restrictions on the power and reach of government, and guarantees of our rights. They are being ignored. If existing restrictions and guarantees are ignored […]
