  • 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 […]

  • 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 That is the idea that our Constitution is somehow no longer in force, having been supplanted by some act in 1871 that altered our form […]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. 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 […]

  • Honesty

    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 […]

Three Legs

A civil society stands on the rule of law, not 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. Think of gravity. God also made Moral Law, for us. While in His infinite wisdom, He allows us to break it (not without consequences!), anyone can see that societies that disrespect it, fail. For any human-made rule to be true law, it must comport with God’s Law, and, in the USA, with our Constitution. This we have.

The second leg is a broad consensus on what that law is and what it means, People at large must understand it, and know and recognize its necessity and legitimacy. That, we do NOT have enough of, today. Most “sheeple” think that anything that somebody with a gov job says is “law”, IS Law. Some see so much garbage wrongly called “law”, and see actual law so badly corrupted, that they think that law itself is bad, or is dead, and we have to make justice by violence…THAT is an oxymoron, and not a world any sensible person wants to live in. So we have to TEACH what good law looks like, where it comes from, how to distinguish it from bureaucratic bullshit and the lies of would-be tyrants.

The third leg is force. Sorry, but it is true. We always hope that mere availability of force, like the pistol on the cop’s hip (or Teddy Roosevelt’s Big Stick), is enough, and it does not need to be unholstered. But for those who have no respect for the Law, it has to be there.

Although there are a lot of patriots training, “we” do not now have the level of force capability, nor the required communication and coordination to apply it effectively. Most important, too few people understand that our Constitution requires that we-the-People, acting as Militia (and Grand Juries), are the final, necessary and lawful check on rogue government. It MUST be emphasized that application of force without public consensus that it is in fact an operation of law, will only contribute to chaos, and feed the totalitarian globalists’ lie that Patriot = vigilante=terrorist.
