Oath Keepers forming special teams...
« on: October 03, 2013, 09:11:15 am »

Any OA members care to weigh in on this?

http://www.dailypaul.com/300989/oath-keepers-kick-it-up-a-notch-going-operational-by-forming-special-civilization-preservation-teams

Oath Keepers.org
Oct. 1, 2013

Oath Keepers is instructing its 30,000 members nation-wide to form up special teams and sub-teams in each Oath Keepers chapter, at the town and county level, modeled loosely on the Special Forces A Team (Operational Detachment A ) model, and for a similar purpose: to be both a potential operational unit for community security and support during crisis, but also, as mission #1, to serve as training and leadership cadre, to assist in organizing neighborhood watches, organizing veterans halls to provide community civil defense, forming County Sheriff Posses, strengthening existing CERT, volunteer fire, search-and-rescue, reserve deputy systems, etc., and eventually to assist in forming and training town and county militias (established by official act of town and county elected representatives). We want our chapters to organize themselves as a working model that we can then take to other veterans organizations, such as the VFW, American Legion, Marine Corps League, etc. in each town and help them establish such teams within their already existing veterans halls. And likewise, to serve as a model and training cadre to help churches, neighborhood watches, and any other civic organization organize.

We are basing this on the Special Forces model, which has a twelve man A team of specially trained soldiers who are inserted into a community to train and lead that community in resistance to oppressive regimes (hence their motto: De Oppresso Liber). . SFs primary mission is to teach, organize, and lead, rather than to directly fight. They can fight, of course, but they are most dangerous as a force-multiplier by helping an entire community to fight. We will do the same be force multipliers to help prepare communities so they can preserve civilization by providing their own security, disaster relief, infrastructure preservation, emergency communications, strategic food reserve, and medical care.</snip>

I am particularly happy with this decision.  Geeze, we (the Oath Keepers) could hardly be on more lists anyway... time to take off the gloves and seriously address the threats to our lives, liberty that are imminent.

Once upon a time, Homeland Security encouraged citizens to prepare themselves for various "emergency" situations.  Then they proceed to stockpile bullets.  So I think OK would be able to say, "Nothing to see here--just following instructions."  This is an outgrowth of other programs that have been started by OK--just ramping it up several notches. 

I work for a social services organization which is teaming up with Catholic Charities to train social workers and counselors to go into disaster areas to provide help for people in need.  They're working with FEMA on this.  All well and good--charities should be doing this anyway.  (I was raised in a denomination which sent disaster aid teams all over the world, at the volunteers' expense, long before FEMA became the bureaucratic hot mess it is today, so I've seen this happen up close and personal.)  But as I was sending information out on this, I thought, "We should be doing this locally, too."  So I'm glad to see OK moving forward with this idea.  Unfortunately we don't have a chapter in my area--yet, anyway!

I agree that this is a good idea and like you freewoman live in a community that doesn't have an organized OK Chapter. [Town is too small and too rural.]
I would love to see the Legion and the VFW get onto this bandwagon sooner rather than later.
meanwhile ...

I'm not saying I am an Oath Keeper but if I was then I'd say that many of "them" had already started recruiting and training.  Don't let the number of 30,000 fool you as to how strong "they" are.  Actual number are estimated to be closer to a million members.  Most members would rather fly under the radar while some live in the open in order to maintain a presence for visibility and recruiting.

The county Sheriff and his deputies.........with a citizen's posse of volunteers trained up to a standard as a well organized militia........ Totally Constitutional and definitely of no threat to TPTB.   

Now if there are some high speed low drag former spec ops guys forming up direct action teams, that is another story.   I wonder what the triggering events would be?  Something like an obviously rigged election?  A declaration of martial law on flimsy premises?  The beginings of Krystallnacht activity?

Yep all true. Not that TPTB really cares about such trivialities any more.

Obviously rigged election?
Name one that hasn't been rigged since Oh say about 1870 or so ... maybe even farther back than that. :dontknow:

A declaration of martial law on flimsy premises?
TPTB have been doing this on a local basis for generations. Got to get the sheep(le) used to the presence of wolves in their midst don't you know? It is so commonplace nowadays that few if any would even remark on it unless it was a general declaration over the entire country.
That would wake up even the VFW and the American Legion is my guess. Some to go help TPTB is my guess.

The beginings of Krystallnacht activity?
This is another that would cause a major reaction so I doubt that we will see it until the sheep(le) are generally [a majority + the MSM] calling for those "danged ENTER FAVORITE BOOGEYMAN HERE " to be "dealt with once and for all".
Which is exactly how the National Socialist Party did deal with those nasty ENTER FAVORITE BOOGEYMAN HERE back in Germany in 1937 & 8.

Watch for the formation of "The Black Shirts" and other such Patriotic Associations for your early warning signs.

Say ... What are those dangerous veterans up to these days?   :rolleyes:

Gooch,  I don't think that is going to happen with the VFW as much as it is a good idea.  Their primary role is to lobby for veteran's benefits, secondarily they are a service organization.  The VFW oath, which is secret, is to the constitution, and there is no apparent irony when it is administered.

I don't think it could be this or even something like this.

The Stahlhelm, Bund der Frontsoldaten ("Steel Helmet, League of Frontline Soldiers", also known in short form as Der Stahlhelm) was one of the many paramilitary organizations that arose after the German defeat of World War I. It was part of the "Black Reichswehr" and in the late days of the Weimar Republic operated as the armed branch of the national conservative German National People's Party (DNVP), placed at party gatherings in the position of armed security guards (Saalschutz).

Yeah, I have already said that most of our problems go back to the 1960's "Great Society" program of the Johnsonian Democrats, with several camel nose moments (1937/4, New Deal, 1913) going back to the civil war.......

I am just putting some food for thought out there for those newb ghosts..........

How does someone outside of the Oath Keepers find out if there is an
active chapter in their area, and if so, contact them to see what kind
of support they might need down the road?

There is a "Contact Us" page / link on the main OathKeepers.org webpage.  There should also be an option to select your state.  That will send an email to the state point of contact, who should get back to you and help you get in contact with someone locally.  Membership is not required to be involved with the new CPTs.

Okay. I sent a message to my state contact via the Oath Keeper page.  I'll let you know if/how it works.

Hey SMS,

Were you able to contact an OK group?
It's been 2 1/2 years since your post and I know that you have moved (?)* and am just reconnecting to see if your attempt was positive or negative.

stay safe,

I am somewhat connected, but think there is simply no activity in my neck of the woods.  Montana is home to a strong contingent of Oath Keepers, to say the least. However it is a big place and their organization has not reached the southwest yet.  If I wanna rub elbows, I gotta drive a few hours each way.

They did have a meeting half-way here once. I drove to that one and was glad I did, but no further organization came my way.

It is much the same in my ao I'm afraid.
To my knowledge I am the only actual OKer in my county. I have met several vets, cops and county deputies (and a veteran+news paper reporter) that Claim to be keeping their oath. It's hard to tell without some kind of "event" that causes the display of committment to become overt. sigh ...
I am going to attempt to "sound out" my neighbors as to a "neighborhood watch" sort of network.
