Discussion On Wild Bunch Dispatch Issue #46 Starts HERE At 6pm Mountain Time!

January 6, 2021

The Q&A portion of the Wild Bunch Dispatch will be held on this page from 6pm to 7:30pm (Mountain Time) today.  Any questions you might have on the 46th issue please post here and I will try to answer them to the best of my ability.  Some ground rules:

1)  Please stick to the subject matter of the newsletter.

2)  This is not a debate forum.  If you have some concerns I’m happy to address them, but I can’t get into a long circular debate while other people have questions.

3)  If I do not respond to your question immediately, don’t freak out.  I’ll get to it, don’t worry.

4)  Try to keep to one or two questions each time you write a post.  Please refrain from essay-long multi-question posts.  It is much appreciated. 

I will begin discussion at exactly 6pm Mountain time.  Looking forward to your questions and thoughts on the Wild Bunch Issue #46.  The next issue of the newsletter will be released on January 15th.  If you missed out on this discussion you can still subscribe for the next issue and participate.  For more information on how to subscribe, visit the link HERE.

    Good evening Brandon. Wow!! What a day any thoughts you want to share

      I will be publishing an article within the next couple of days on the events in DC. I will say though that this was easy to predict for anyone within the liberty movement with eyes to see. Conservatives and even moderates are fed up. They have endured numerous trespasses by state governments during the lockdowns. They have lost their businesses and their jobs. They have witnessed the social justice cult burn down neighborhoods, hijack city streets and loot with impunity while leftists claim they are the “victims”, and now conservatives are being called terrorists because they protest. They have had enough, and the events in Washington are just the beginning of their response. I expect that the situation will only become more violent from here on, and frankly, conservatives are perfectly justified in their rage. The war has not yet started, this is not Lexington Bridge, but such an event is near.

        Do you believe there is any possibility that the same kind of agitators seen at Antifa and BLM riots were planted into the crowd in DC to create the events that transpired today?

          Not likely. I think conservatives are just pissed off and this is the natural result of a long year of abuses by the political left, along with concerns over the globalist reset.

          • Sandhill Crane January 6, 2021 at 6:53 pm

            Was there something specific about this event that makes you believe it was an action by genuine conservatives and not a staged event to harm conservatives?

            Also I wanted to thank you so much for all the work you’ve done to try to warn and prepare people about this.

            I’ve seen no evidence that it was a staged event, and I don’t see how it hurts conservatives. So far it is only galvanizing the liberty movement and proving all the naysayers wrong. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard the argument that conservatives will “roll over and do nothing”. Clearly, that is not the case. If I see concrete evidence that the event was part of some agenda, then I am happy to revisit my opinion. The only danger that concerns me is the possibility that liberty activists will make their efforts primarily about Trump; this would be a mistake. Our actions MUST NOT revolve around Trump, they must be about the bigger picture, including medical tyranny, leftist censorship and violence as well as the globalist reset.

  • Byron January 6, 2021 at 6:06 pm

    Hi Brandon,

    1) Have you had any success in reaching moderate leftists with your preparedness group, or are the dividing lines permanently drawn now (especially after today’s events)?
    2) Have you changed recommended ham radio setups since your previous newsletter/articles?

    Thanks so much for your work! Just so you know, the heading of issue 46 reads “Issue Number 46, January 3rd 2020” (2020 instead of 2021).

      Brandon Smith January 6, 2021 at 6:20 pm

      1) I have no idea. I don’t usually ask the political affiliations of preppers. I usually just assume they are conservative, but I have seen a trend of more traditional liberals that are taking the prepper movement much more serious these days.

      2) Yes, I noticed the typo after it was too late. It should read 2021, but I’m not used to the date change yet. I have not really changed my Ham recommendations. I think the old setup would work well for anyone starting out in radio.

    Well Brandon what a day.Your thoughts? Did we fall for the trap

      I don’t think this was in the elitist playbook. Even Trump is telling people to go home, which indicates to me that the raid on the capitol was unintended. I think the elites prefer us to wait around for Trump to tell us what we are supposed to be doing, but the movement is far bigger than Trump. That said, if Biden actually enters the White House I expect that the situation will become far more violent, as Biden will undoubtedly attempt to institute martial law measures almost immediately, not to mention Level 4 pandemic lockdowns to keep people from traveling.

  • Stolas January 6, 2021 at 6:14 pm

    Hi Brandon,
    When you say “Everything must be above board. Specific tactics and security plans should be kept secret, but everything else must be transparent”, do you think it would be possible to inquire in such places as City Hall or other municipal body, whether their locale has organized militia? Or would such a question be totally misplaced and mal-seen? Asking because this might add to my decision to relocate to a place.

    • Avatar photo
      Brandon Smith January 6, 2021 at 6:28 pm

      City officials would not know if they had a militia or not. It’s completely out of their hands. I would plan on being an organizer for a militia wherever you end up, and as you put the word out people will connect with you and let you know if one already exists.

  • CaptHank January 6, 2021 at 6:14 pm

    With what is going on in DC today, do you think Trump will refuse to leave office on the 20th?

    • Avatar photo
      Brandon Smith January 6, 2021 at 6:33 pm

      I still think the plan is for Trump to refuse to concede and perhaps stay in the White House. I don’t know if the protests in DC will have any bearing on that, but if Trump stays in this sets the stage for the establishment to accuse conservatives of supplanting “democracy” and supporting dictatorship. This would not be an accurate narrative, of course, but it would be the narrative all the same. If I am wrong and Biden enters office, it will be the most unifying event for conservatives in modern history. Hard lines will be drawn and honestly, I would not expect Biden to last more than a couple years in the presidency before he has a massive insurgency on his hands that removes him from the Oval Office.

  • Rick O"Shay January 6, 2021 at 6:23 pm

    I am a newcomer in my rural county, and the long term residents, while welcoming, do not fully accept me. It’s not personal, its just that I do not have a history here. Our sheriff has posted on his Facebook page that he will NOT be enforcing Governmental mandates but only laws. Given this circumstance, do you advocate my discussing my interest in creating a local protection group with him prior to proceeding? It is my thought that obtaining his approval and knowledge of the local community is essential in establishing trust and interest in the group. Without his support, I fear my efforts could be wasted.

      Brandon Smith January 6, 2021 at 6:39 pm

      No, I would just start an open group and if the sheriff wants to get involved then he will come to you. If you hold meetings every couple weeks and stay consistent then people will show up to them. Never bottleneck your organizing by waiting for permission or cooperation from a single individual. If you stick with it people will respect your efforts.

  • Hugo January 6, 2021 at 6:43 pm

    Brandon we are looking forward to your upcoming article on the events that transpired today. There is increasing chatter about the 25th amendment being invoked against Trump….Any quick thoughts on that?

    • Avatar photo
      Brandon Smith January 6, 2021 at 6:51 pm

      It would require Pence to invoke; the 25th is designed to fill the void of power when a president is incapable of doing the job (usually due to health concerns). I’m not sure Pence would support the 25th and even if he did I’m not sure it would matter. If the elites want Trump to stay in, he’ll stay in. If they want Biden in, then Trump will leave. It’s as simple as that. You might see Pence step down as VP, however, or some other dramatic event that creates uncertainty in government. At this point, the system is so utterly corrupt I really don’t care if it falls apart. All I care about is that liberty people are prepared for the fallout and that they are ready to fight as the elites try to institute their Reset agenda.

  • stuxnet January 6, 2021 at 6:44 pm

    I had been noticing chatter among some parts among conservatives that haven’t written off politics about undertaking mass grassroots runs for less glamorous local positions that have mostly been ceded to leftists such as school boards and election boards in the hope of preventing another 2020. While you’ve made your opinion clear in your writings that you feel the American political system is an unsalvageable control mechanism set up by the elites meant to distract the masses, is there any value for Liberty Activists to attempt a similar strategy with taking over local law enforcement bodies as part of a community security strategy? Or is a “long march” strategy for such institutions inherently unviable due to the risk of getting the rug pulled out from underneath by something like police federalization?

      Brandon Smith January 6, 2021 at 6:55 pm

      I have always argued in favor of conservatives being more active at the local level. At the federal level they are wasting their energy and time, but they can actually change things for the better within their own communities. I think we already seeing the fruits of this as numerous sheriffs across the country are refusing to enforce the lockdown mandates. That said, I would also prepare for the worst case scenario and organize people outside of local government as well.

  • GuyfromWest January 6, 2021 at 6:59 pm

    (tried to post this once already but it shows “comment awaiting approval”?)


    North of you here in Alberta, the government has mandated no social gatherings inside or outside. Any recommendations on how to hold preparedness meetings in these circumstances? Would it be better to wait until the restrictions are lifted (if ever) so that more people might be interested, or find another way? It is also interesting that this type of gathering, or even conversations with like-minded individuals, is how resistance (or even revolution) gets started, and conveniently this is exactly what is being outlawed at the moment. Thanks for your great work!

      The lockdowns are absolutely designed to stop public organization and dissent. This is not a coincidence. I would put the word out soon – If the lockdowns are about to be lifted then wait a little while, but if you have a month or more to go then ignore them and start advertising some kind of meeting. Make sure you have a few friends at least to back you up in case of trouble. If you organize it people will show up; people need someone to take make the initial effort and to lead the way.

      • GuyfromWest January 6, 2021 at 7:26 pm

        Sounds good, thanks Brandon. Also, a quick follow up, do you think the elites plan to follow the same playbook regardless of country? In other words, how similar do you think things will be say here in Canada compared to the US?

        • Avatar photo
          Brandon Smith January 6, 2021 at 7:30 pm

          Different, depending on the country. Canada is strongly socialist so you have an uphill battle, but it is still worth fighting. The government there will try to rely on snitch culture to weed out freedom fighters. Organizing for security will be essential.

  • Greg B. January 6, 2021 at 7:03 pm

    Relating to the topic of the article, I remember reading some stories of militia members who’ve gotten into trouble with the feds and they all had one thing in common: they allowed their groups to be infiltrated by informants and federal agents. Had they properly vetted their recruits they would’ve avoided their situation.

    • Avatar photo
      Brandon Smith January 6, 2021 at 7:12 pm

      Actually, I have dealt with informants and government posers in the past and I can tell you that they are mostly irrelevant and not a threat to you as long as you follow one simple rule: Do NOT openly discuss violent felony activity or conspiracy to commit a crime. Kick out anyone that attempts to get you or your members to talk about such things. If they can’t get you on conspiracy charges then they have no power to stop you. Once the collapse hits a certain point, if there are any feds or informants in your group, they will suddenly disappear one day. They will not continue to take the risk of infiltrating while the rule of law is breaking down. Vet people whenever possible, but don’t let the threat of the feds stop you from lawfully organizing.

  • SteveH January 6, 2021 at 7:18 pm

    Hi Brandon.

    It seems to me that a volunteer organization with a focus on emergency or disaster response might be a good entity to organize in the fashion you mention in the Dispatch. Preparedness is a significant focus of these groups. Typically they have the support of the County Emergency Management and Sheriff. Would you encourage or discourage this approach?

    • Avatar photo
      Brandon Smith January 6, 2021 at 7:22 pm

      Sure, if you can make it happen. But, I would put priority on organizing the people that live in your area first. Time is running out.

    By wearing a mask I am supporting the NWO. So I don’t. It is easy to to recognize like minded folks who are not wearing a mask in the store I am in. In fact there is usually a high five given, smile, nodding head. Instant connection. I’ve had no verbal communications only eye contact to 15 minute conversation on what is happening to us. Mostly at Home Depot while waiting in line. I always ask if they own an “essential” business. “No, I was furloughed and am working under the table. “ It is at this point I’ve want to pursue the “support group” conversation but haven’t. Not fearful. I go on my gut directing me by absorbing what he is purchasing, his dialect, his knowledge on current events, and an inventory of other characteristics. This is done in a few minutes. But like I said wearing a mask is supporting the NWO. Start there. ?
