Patriotic Group To Build Armed
´Defensible´ Neighborhood Fortress

CNS News, by Gregory Gwyn-Williams, Jr.

Original Article

Posted By:bugger, 1/13/2013 7:59:19 AM

A group of like-minded patriots, bound together by pride in American exceptionalism, plan on building an armed community to protect their liberty. The group, named Citadel, intends to purchase 2,000 to 3,000 acres for the project in western Idaho. The community will comprise of 3,500 to 7,000 families of patriotic Americans who "voluntarily choose to live together in accordance with Thomas Jefferson´s ideal of Rightful Liberty."
Source corrected.

Comments:
I found this both inspiring and scary, the latter because people are this worried. My second thought was fear that it it might turn out like Waco with the tyrants we have in power.

If there´s an assault like Waco or Ruby Ridge, a hundred thousand patriots must be ready to show up to defend them. That´s our only hope to put this illicit government on notice "we´re mad as hell and not going to take it anymore!"

OP, that is my concern as well. But I look at these endeavors with a bit of skepticism, even though it has a certain attraction for me and I completely understand why others would be attracted to this type of community as well. However, man is sinful by nature, and even in communities like this, one is not immune from power struggles and attempts to control people. It´s disconcerting that our current Constitutional crisis has brought this on.

I seriously doubt a Waco repeat in this endeavor. The Feds outnumbered the Folks there and were able to slaughter them all. If seven thousand Families inhabit this Citadel and are well armed. The Federales might think twice about taking them on. JMHO.

As I recall, Western Idaho is already a hangout for Aryan Brotherhood types. Is this more of the same.

And here he what the members of this community will voluntarily do:

Citadel says that every patriot selected to live within the community "will voluntarily agree to follow the footsteps of our Founding Fathers by swearing to one another our lives, our fortunes and our Sacred Honor to defend one another and Liberty against all enemies, foreign and domestic."

If they do not voluntarily agree, they will not be selected. So where is the "voluntary" in this setup?

Spooky.

This community is being put together by the owner of III Arms Company, a "fighting arms" manufacturer.

Read about it at their blog here:

http://iiiarms.blogspot.com/2012/09/iii-arms-company_20.html

III Arms is dedicated to building first-class fighting arms for the defense of Jefferson´s Rightful Liberty. Our company is the result of more than 40 American Patriots who joined forces and pooled resources to help defend Liberty and America.

This company is located in Idaho. Its owners envision the "neighborhood fortress" that is the subject of the posted article.

What a bunch of "wimp willy excuse makers". No wonder conservatives can win anything. Comparing this to Waco? Now comparing a very small group to a large population is a lack of logic and common sense.

Yes folks, don´t bother applying. With the attitudes here you would be considered not strong enough to defend our Constitutional Republic and be turned down.

Beware and be forewarned:

I have been to Waco to view the site of this infringement on American rights and freedoms.

There is nothing left of this graveyard for 82 religious Americans and 4 overzealous FBI agents. It is like the government wants it wiped out of the history books.

Janet Reno (Napolitano even looks like her) ordered the destruction because of a
charge of violation of the Federal Firearms Act. Remember that gun owners.

Gen Wesley Clark offered her Army tanks support if she wanted to use them against
American citizens. She declined after all why would she need them when she had a full Army/FBI armored task force to pit against civilian men, women and children.

Our lovable, impeached, and disbarred, (I didn´t have sex with that woman)
ex-president William Jefferson Clinton (married to the "I don´t remember" 250
times before Congress, Hillary) said he had nothing to do with the mess and said it was Reno´s call all the way. Sound familiar Barry?

#8, we´re not at the point of calling these people the "Aryan Brotherhood". I could just as easily join such a group but am not nearly of that category. Like these people, I have realized that the government under Obama has gotten out of control and is on the edge of becoming tyrranical and totalitarian.

I´m just a church lady who doesn´t recognize nor like what Obama & Co have done to America. I want my country back and if I can´t have that, I´ll simply adjourn to a place where I can be left alone, self-sufficient in a place with like-minded people.

Like these people, I don´t want to be around liberals or their policies and I don´t want them near me. It´s gotten that bad, yes, and in only 4 years.

So I completely understand what they want. They´re not crazies, although they will be portrayed as such by those who rely more upon media characterization than upon their own.

I think secession is in the wind. If that cannot be accomplished soon, this patriotic group´s idea is a good stopgap measure if they can pull it off. Just guessing, I think this idea will gain some momentum. And just as surely, they will be marginalized, ridiculed, patronized and disdained. In short, Alinsky´d.

This should have gone with #25:

Under "Revenue" at the Citadel´s site:

Survival of the Citadel Community depends on making employment available for arriving families. We have already launched III Arms, a modern firearms company that will help employ the first wave of III Pioneers. III Arms is also unique in the world of firearms companies in that all profits generated are donated to the Citadel to help build our community.

Many entrepreneurs have already stepped forward and announced their intent to start small businesses that will employ Citadel Pioneers and existing Benewah County residents.

Additionally, the Citadel intends to become a premiere tourist destination for Americans from sea-to-sea and border-to-border. Not only will tourists travel to see the only real fortified castle & town in America, we intend to offer numerous attractions including a firearms museum where enthusiasts actually get to fire their favorite arms from history!

#24, Western Idaho is where Boise is, you are thinking of Northern Idaho, Hayden Lake area where there ONCE was an aryan compound.

And you will be happy to know that Boise is so full of Californicators that is is very liberal now.

I see nothing disturbing with the article but some of the posts in response are quite disturbing. David Koresh was more of a Jim Jones than a Christian hero.

Pledging your lives and fortune is called walking the walk. Many who have pledged to resist tyranny do so only as long as there is no cost to their protestations. In plain language, some of the most vocal would be patriots would hand their guns over to the first "authority" that comes knocking on the door. Collective defense of pioneering communities did more to settle the states west of Allegheny Mountains than did the US Army. Voluntary mutual defense arrangements throughout the countryside make a lot of sense, whether you are defending against urban marauders in a time of upheaval or against a lawless, anti-Constitutional government gone wild.

IIRC, didn´t the founding fathers pledge their lives and fortunes? Many of them lost both, but it was for something they truly believed in. I don´t find this as ´´scary´´ as others here seem to - more like an ´´oh wow, how interesting´´ kind of reaction...

I’m surprised at the number of negative posts here today. Some are missing the salient point of this story.

The Citadelians are ‘John Galting’. They are giving Obama and Washington the finger and will withdraw from American society as much as possible.

As long as their charter includes the fundamentals of the Bill of Rights, I frankly don’t give a hoot what they do behind closed gates. Given that they will all probably be armed to the teeth, I think personal liberties will do just fine.

They will have two economies, one that the IRS can audit and one that’s underground and allusive. They will spread out and influence a large geographical area and it will drive the Feds crazy trying to get the goods on them.

Confrontations with Uncle Sam are bound to happen and that is precisely what we need. We need to confront that Fascist in the WH as much as possible and in as many different ways as possible without committing felonies.

My hat is off to all of them.

Kaffir

It doesn´t matter how scrupulously they obey the law. They are throwing down the gauntlet to the left. Elements of the left will choose among four responses:

Some leftists will ignore them, in the belief that any attention would only attract more people to the idea.

Some leftists will ridicule them, a la alinsky, akin to how Southerners and the Amish are portrayed as uncool simpletons.

Some will promote the idea, hoping that it will attract others of like mind to become trapped in isolated enclaves.

The last choice will be to demonize them, slander them and accuse them of everything from tax evasion to gun law violations to child abuse. They will be called right-wing militia, nationalists, nazis, neo-nazis, secessionists, separatists, racists, cultists, polygamists, pedophiles, etc.

As I´ve said, it won´t matter how perfectly they obey all federal, state and local laws. The left will want the federal government to spy on them, investigate them, harrass them, frame them, disband them and even liquidate them. Why? For daring to shield themselves and their children from the subtle and overt influences of a media culture and educational system dominated by the increasingly radical left.

Very well said, #6.
This doesn´t sound like-minded...this sounds cult-like.
I know everyone is afraid, but we need to work together to educate, speak the truth fearlessly and stand on principle for others to see.
I can appreciate people wanting to live in a community that is comfortable and filled with people they can converse and do business with, but man´s inherent sinfulness is a problem when it comes to power and control.

Note the modern church. People are fleeing, not because they don´t believe in God, but because of authoritarian pastors who have positioned themselves within their church so no one holds them accountable. Spiritual abuse websites are popping up all over the place from people who have been hurt, shunned and shamed for questioning their pastors, and they no longer trust those in church authority.
This is a very bad idea...good intentions maybe...bad idea.

I´m afraid Idaho is rife with this sort of isolationist thinking and the men in charge are the ones who benefit. Look up Doug Wilson. This is the kind of thinking I´m more fearful of than Obama´s radicalism. I know how to fight that kind of evil.
The other isn´t so easy because it hijacks God and His Word and uses it out of context to control people. I´m certain the very first thing to happen will be to make sure no one questions those in charge.

Jesus didn´t get people to follow Him away from others...He brought them into the midst of a messed up world to be salt and light.
And the Roman govt. was not very tolerant at the time either.

Go to The Citadel´s own website and read all of the sections there. All of them, including revenue and FAQs:

http://iiicitadel.com/index.html

Don´t miss the Patriot Agreement:

http://iiicitadel.com/patriotagreement.html

No one will own anything. It is entirely a leasehold situation with those in charge holding the power to evict anyone who ends up not fitting in. But the residents are required to finish the entire interior of their own units - plumbing, wiring, the works.

Just read it.

Dunno about this. It could become a cult, true. But it also sounds like it could become Switzerland....

Re David Koresh, remember he and he alone was wanted on child abuse charges. He routinely left the compound and went into town, and could have been arrested at any time. Instead, the feds had this neat little assault team they had been training and took on the compound as a sort of live-fire exercise. They did have to bring in tanks, which didn´t fire their weapons but did use dozer blades to knock down the walls after potentially lethal amounts of tear gas had been shot into it. In the resulting fire, all 24 children at the compound, who were the objects of the "protection" of the feds, were killed along with the adults.

Cults are bad things. So is tyranny.

Ken “The Hutch” Hutcherson, 61, a former Seattle Seahawk and an outspoken pastor who championed racial equality but opposed gay marriage, died shortly before noon on Wednesday. He had battled prostate cancer for more than a decade. Pastor Hutcherson, who started the Antioch Bible Church in Redmond, was not afraid to take on politically unpopular causes, such as his yearslong battle against same-sex marriage, or institutional inequities, such as the practice by adoption agencies of charging higher fees to adopt white babies. During his life, the husband and father of four was described by supporters as funny, happy and jovial even in the face of cancer, while detractors called him an egotistic bully.

The heinous intrusions into our lives as a result of ObamaCare swell each day. Now, in true Marxist form, the ludicrously named "Affordable Care Act" mounts an all-out attack on marriage. In 2010, in a Web Memo, the Heritage Foundation pointed out that Under the bill, couples would face massive financial penalties if they marry or remain married. Conversely, couples who cohabit without marriage are given highly preferential financial treatment. If the Senate bill becomes law, saying 'I do' would cost some couples over $10,000 per year.

A group of like-minded patriots, bound together by pride in American exceptionalism, plan on building an armed community to protect their liberty. The group, named Citadel, intends to purchase 2,000 to 3,000 acres for the project in western Idaho. The community will comprise of 3,500 to 7,000 families of patriotic Americans who "voluntarily choose to live together in accordance with Thomas Jefferson´s ideal of Rightful Liberty."

Something always rubs me the wrong way when people tell us that hard times draw us closer together and teach us what is really important in our lives. "We´ve lost the country, at least we´ve got each other." There is something inherently defeatist and depressing about that; accepting defeat, especially unfair defeat, is a hard pill to swallow. Many well written accounts have been published indicating voter fraud won Obama´s reelection, but it was quite clear within 48 hours after the election that nothing was going to be done about it by our leadership or the citizenry.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
