Discussion On Wild Bunch Dispatch Issue #47 Starts HERE At 6pm Mountain Time!

January 19, 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 47th 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 #47.  The next issue of the newsletter will be released on January 29th.  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.

    I moved out of a blue county and into the adjoining pink county here in the maybe red Iowa. Do you think I moved far enough?
    I’m contemplating trying to form a garden club, with an emphasis on protecting gardens from garden predators. I’m wondering if it’s too little, too late. Deer eat everything. Much like Socialist.

      A garden club is nice, but I would be a little more obvious and start a gun or preparedness or conservative discussion club. The important thing is to find a venue like a church, restaurant or bingo hall that is supportive of the club so you can hold meetings every couple of weeks easily. Make sure that everyone knows there is NO discussion on violent felony activity during the meetings. Take away anything that informants can use against you and they will eventually give up and stop trying to infiltrate.

        ” I would be a little more obvious and start a gun or preparedness or conservative discussion club. ”

        I don’t know why, probably a bit of cowardliness, but being more low-key seemed like a good way to go. Not being an extrovert, I guess I gotta kick my game up a notch. I understand history a bit, that helps. Some.

        “The important thing is to find a venue like a church, restaurant or bingo hall that is supportive of the club”

        Thanks for that. I was thinking of hosting something at my house. That makes more sense. I know just the fear-maskless place.

    Discussion on Issue #47 is now open.

  • David January 19, 2021 at 6:13 pm

    Brandon, I live in the county seat of an ostensibly red county in a blue state where the governor has decreed lockdown, masks, the whole nine yards. Everywhere I go all I see are docile, fearful and compliant covidians. None are interested in hearing the truth, that the masks are worthless, the vaccine isn’t really a vaccine, and that by following the money it’s fairly easy to figure out who’s calling the shots. Do you have any suggestions how dissenters can proceed in such an environment? Are there specific non-violent acts that might actually have an impact in resisting the illegitimate Biden/Harris administration? Any thoughts you might have would be appreciated.

      Find a venue, such as a church, and start discussion meetings. You might be surprised how many conservatives show up. Don’t wear masks, and don’t submit to the mandates. Start a movement within your country to reject the state mandates. I don’t know what state you are in, but even in California there are counties that are defying the lockdowns and the sheriffs are in support. I have been thinking about putting together a simple flier that people can print out which lists the scientific facts about covid that the media does not want Americans to know about. People could post such fliers all over their town.

      • Byron January 19, 2021 at 6:27 pm

        Your flier would be extremely useful. I know there are people who want to do “something” but do not know what. Putting up a simple flier fills that need.

      • Pita January 19, 2021 at 7:24 pm

        I agree a flier would be extremely helpful and useful. Would you be able to include citations or websites for naysayers to visit for the facts you’ll include on your flier? I’ve tried to mention facts before and I get met with “Children are dying!” and (my favorite) “PEOPLE ARE DYING!” It’s as if logic and rationality have disappeared.

          Brandon Smith January 19, 2021 at 7:27 pm

          Yes, I can provide citations and links to debunk anyone that tries to dismiss the facts. Also, millions of people die from numerous ailments every year (almost no children are dying from covid, by the way), we never had to give up our freedoms before just to make some people feel safer; why should we have to do it because of covid?

          • Pita January 19, 2021 at 7:35 pm

            Those were exactly my points when I was speaking to the town council. I think, at the time, three children had died and that may have been a worldwide number. I can’t quite remember. The reaction has certainly been overblown.
            Thanks again

          • helot January 19, 2021 at 7:45 pm

            “to debunk anyone that tries to dismiss the facts.”

            I wish and hope that works for others. Facts have had no headway with the likes of my parents or in-laws, they see – only the odds – and trust the priests in white lab coats with stethoscopes more than this mere mortal. I have tried and tried and don’t know how to defeat their acceptance of The Great Delusion.

    • Rick O"Shay January 19, 2021 at 6:25 pm

      Tell me about it. For 6 months, I’ve listened to my sister and brother-in-law both yelling to the heavens there was NO WAY they were taking the holy jab. Imagine my surprise when my sister texted me last week with her vaccine papers. When I asked why, she stated and I quote peer pressure. This woman is a 49 year old Fed LEO and she can’t deal with peer pressure. We’re doomed.

        I’m seeing far more people saying they will NEVER take the vaccine than people saying they will. I would remind people that even the former Pfizer VP said the vaccine could cause sterility or other auto-immune disorders.

  • Rick O"Shay January 19, 2021 at 6:13 pm

    While reading your article, I was under the impression that you advocated for us true conservatives to congregate in one or maybe 2 states. I’ve been a prepper for 10 years. Pulling up stakes would require multiple U-Hauls. Do you foresee the possibly of perhaps 2 redoubt areas-one in the American Redoubt and a second one in the Appalachian Redoubt?

    • Avatar photo
      Brandon Smith January 19, 2021 at 6:26 pm

      No, not just two states. There are FAR more heavily conservatives states than that. There are also many red counties within blue states that are organizing to defy the lockdown mandates. That said, I think the highest concentration of preppers would be in the two areas you mentioned. Tennessee and nearby states in the East and Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Utah, North and South Dakota in the West. If you are already in a red county, it might be better to stay put and try to organize where you already live.

    • Pita January 19, 2021 at 7:08 pm

      I like the idea of an Appalachian redoubt. Pretty country there.

      • Avatar photo
        Brandon Smith January 19, 2021 at 7:14 pm

        Yes. From what I hear a lot of liberty people are moving to that region. They just need to start organizing more aggressively.

      • Rick O"Shay January 19, 2021 at 7:15 pm

        Great for farming. My homestead currently has peas, lettuce, and beets growing in an unheated greenhouse. Land is still cheap in Eastern KY too. Like $1000/acre cheap for good tillable land…but it’s starting to move.

        • Pita January 19, 2021 at 7:38 pm

          I love eastern KY and TN. Some of my favorite areas in the country, as well as western NC and VA.

  • Greg B. January 19, 2021 at 6:18 pm

    I’ve been hearing some promising things from some representatives in my state in regards to secession. I’ve also heard that Florida plans to secede as well if we do. If various states do go through with secession I can see them either becoming independent nation states or forming a separate union/confederacy for security.

  • Capthank January 19, 2021 at 6:23 pm

    Is this the start of martial law?
    Footage from Monday, January 18, shows troops with the Wisconsin and Illinois National Guards being deputized as US Capitol Police special officers. The ceremony took place inside the Visitor Center of the Capitol building which, two weeks earlier, was stormed by Trump loyalists seeking to disrupt the count of Electoral College votes by Congress. The troops would serve as Capitol police officers through January 24, the National Guard said. Credit: DC National Guard via Storyful

      No, not yet. I think those troops will disappear after the inauguration. But, what I do expect is for Biden to try to enforce a federal lockdown or medical passports within the first couple months of his administration. If you live in a blue state or city, you will be feeling the pain because they will submit to EVERYTHING Biden demands. Red states and counties will likely refuse. As a secession or separation movement gains steam and more conservatives are kicked off the internet, that’s when you will start to hear talk of martial law from the leftists.

  • dipfrap January 19, 2021 at 6:33 pm

    @Brandon, what do you think about Texas as a place to move for conservatives? It’s turning blue, and it looks like silicon valley is moving there, so maybe not so appealing anymore? Any hope for Texas?

    • Avatar photo
      Brandon Smith January 19, 2021 at 6:36 pm

      I know people in Texas, and the claims that it is “turning blue” are false. Only the Austin area is heavily blue, the rest of the state is heavily red. They said Texas was going to go to Biden during the election, and that turned out to be nonsense. My suspicion is that the story of a “liberal invasion” into red states is a psyop. In fact, I am doubtful that Arizona and Georgia are actually turning blue. I think we need to take a closer look at some of those mail-in ballots.

      • dipfrap January 19, 2021 at 6:39 pm

        Makes sense. What are your thoughts about silicon valley moving there? In fact a lot of tech and other industries are. Do they know something we don’t? Is it coordinated (are they talking to each other)? Do you think they could turn the state eventually?

        • Avatar photo
          Brandon Smith January 19, 2021 at 6:43 pm

          I don’t really see a lot of them moving there. I know Elon Musk is, and I wouldn’t trust him at all because he is a regular guest at the World Government Conference in Dubai. But other than that, I don’t think most of the Big Tech companies will leave the safety of California and Washington State. If things went south quickly, they might hypothetically be targeted in a place like Texas.

  • Greg B. January 19, 2021 at 6:46 pm

    When you mentioned conservative enclaves and groups in predominantly blue states and counties there’s also going to be similar enclaves of leftists and progressives in red states and counties. Do you think they’ll pose much of a threat to secession efforts or will they simply leave or just deal with it and stay? Personally I could care less if they go or stay so long as they behave themselves.

    • Avatar photo
      Brandon Smith January 19, 2021 at 6:52 pm

      I think most of them will leave if a secession movement starts gaining momentum. Some moderates may stay just because red states are more likely to survive an economic crash than blue states. I think there will be some cities in red states that have leftist politicians in charge and these cities will try to enforce lockdown mandates at the municipal level. In this situation conservatives are going to have to send a message, perhaps by organizing anti-lockdown marches across those cities. I agree though, I don’t care if leftists live near me as long as they stay out of our way.

  • Black Cat January 19, 2021 at 6:51 pm

    In this discussion of secession is there any discernible argument for the union to stay together?

    • Avatar photo
      Brandon Smith January 19, 2021 at 6:56 pm

      I think it would be very hard to accomplish, if not impossible in the short term. Look at it this way, though: Sometimes you have to take a couple of steps back before you can move forward. Conservatives need to separate, unify and reassert the freedoms that this country was founded on. Only then can we eventually remove the totalitarian globalists and their leftists puppets from power and put America back on track. In terms of saving the system from within through elections, I think it’s clear now that such a strategy is doomed to failure.

      • Black Cat January 19, 2021 at 7:14 pm

        Considering how long the actions to disassemble the states has been taking place, logic and common sense would guide us to accepting the long term plan for re-establishing liberty from the ground up.
        Groups are forming here in my area like never before, Liberty is uniting, as a positive note for those feeling dejected.

          I’m seeing organization all over the place. This is why I have been saying that the elites and the Reset agenda may be failing; they appear to be in a huge rush to implement policies which, according to Event 201, should have been implemented over the course of a few years rather than 6 to 12 months.

          • Black Cat January 19, 2021 at 7:47 pm

            Good to hear.

  • Pita January 19, 2021 at 6:58 pm

    I live outside of a blue town (not the county seat), in a blue county in a blue state. Due to factors out of my control, there is no feasible possibility of moving for at least a year.For now, our sheriff is not enforcing the mask mandates or, as far as I know, the statewide curfew. Even though our current sheriff is not going along with those, it’s entirely possible that a new, more “state amenable” sheriff to be elected, changing that dynamic. Do you think it will still be possible to move in a year or two since things are changing so rapidly?

    • Avatar photo
      Brandon Smith January 19, 2021 at 7:04 pm

      Possibly. I think that the news of a “new covid mutation” is setting the stage for more lockdowns in the near future, and I suspect Biden will attempt a federal Level 4 lockdown at some point in the first year of his administration. If this happens, then many blue states will try to prevent travel, and relocation will be difficult. If you have family you trust in a red state or red county, I would start talking to them about contingency plans. You might want to invest in a camper trailer or RV if possible and load it with preps so that you can bug out quickly if needed.

      • Pita January 19, 2021 at 7:30 pm

        I was actually looking at campers today. No family in a red state. We are all within adjoining blue states, but I have close friends in a red state on the other side of the country. The logistics are enormous and selling the homestead and animals would pose problems.
        I’ve considered the sane thing regarding the coverage of the new mutations and it being so much more contagious than the original strain and have tried to warn family and friends to stick up for another lockdown.

  • Greg B. January 19, 2021 at 7:17 pm

    This might be off-topic but what do you think about the FBI vetting the National Guard troops in charge of guarding the Capitol? It seems like Biden’s doesn’t trust his own troops to protect him. After all some of the DC police personnel let the protesters into the capitol building.

      Brandon Smith January 19, 2021 at 7:22 pm

      Yes, I don’t think the average leftist has considered the possibility that a large portion of the military and police will not follow unconstitutional orders from a totalitarian, but Biden and his handlers certainly seem to be aware. If you read between the lines, the collectivists are scared.

  • Black Cat January 19, 2021 at 7:24 pm

    What’s your thoughts on the “legal” arguments for secession being feasible. In my opinion when it becomes this serious the current laws against legality won’t hold water regardless, but up until that point surely the bureaucrats will spend time on the back and forth.

    • Avatar photo
      Brandon Smith January 19, 2021 at 7:32 pm

      I think we need to take a movement stance on secession. If the vast majority of the people in a state or county want it, then it really does not matter what the “legality” arguments might be. We simply do it. State politicians can come along for the ride if they want, but their input is not needed if they are going to try to interfere.

    I live in Southern NV and I absolutely hate what has happened here. When I moved here in the early 1990s it was wonderful, but the California Locusts have wrecked it — NV used to be a solid Conservative state but Democrats now have total control of it. Would love to move but can’t afford it. Everything sucks here, trends are horrible.
