  • 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 […]


  • TACTICAL CIVICS™

    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 […]


  • What is “Constitutional Law Enforcement”? Can Militia make arrests and hold trials?

    Our Constitution guarantees that indictments for serious crimes must come from a Grand Jury, which is a random drawing of we-the-people.  This process is intended to protect both against wrongful persecution by a vengeful self-appointed mob, and against corrupt officials or other powerful people protecting each other. A judge or prosecutor can choose to empanel […]


  • Three Legs

    Our civil society, our Republic, stands on the rule of law, not on the changing and arbitrary whims of men. And the Law stands on three legs. First is, well, The Law. We get the concept of Law from God. The universe runs on physical law, and cannot run without it. It cannot be broken. […]


  • “It’s illegal!”, they say

    Many people have brought to our attention a document titled,“Fact Sheet on Unlawful Militias in Virginia” (or other State),purportedly prepared by the Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection (ICAP) at Georgetown University Law . We have seen very similar versions for many of the StatesICAP’s text is in italics. As background, it must be understood […]


  • A Rose by Any Other Name

    To Muster or not to Muster or A Rose by Any Other Name I run a weekly open online discussion for anyone interested in Constitutional militia. One of our very welcome regulars is the commander of a numerous and very well-regarded group in central Virginia. This group is a few years old, now, and was […]


  • Constitutional Militia?

    Constitutional Militia? We hear the word, “Militia”, and we hear the phrase “Constitutional Militia”.Are they different? Is this a useful distinction, or is it only a way to sound bigger and better? “Militia”, at its most basic, just means people that have organized themselves under arms, but not a paid army under a national command. […]


  • 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. Many 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 […]
