Militia Q&A

Published Post author

In a recent email from Nebraska Leaders List, the following I thought was worth posting here on FreeNebraska.org.


There were several questions after last week’s email discussing the possibility of a militia in Nebraska. I’ll rearrange the order of answers for clarity.
“Militia is a harsh word with negative connotations.” Point taken, so substitute the purpose: “security”, self-protection”, “defense”, “safeguard”. Take away the emotion and it’s a positive term.
We have an out-of-control executive branch, using force to control what happens.
Our government structure provides the power stop it but it appears unlikely that will happen.
Nebraska’s protection from external threats depends on that national government.
We may find ourselves unprotected from the increasing chaos.
So we’re not going to dwell on a potential threat but it would be naive to think it can’t happen.
What about the Nebraska state militia? Numerous attempts have been made to contact them. No response.
Is the governor involved? He is, with the formal, state militia. This project will be shaped by the people involved.
Why do we have people in Texas? First, the border is in chaos. The border patrol has appreciated the help from militia groups. But the feds in general are doing worse than nothing. They are actually clearing areas that allow the cartels to operate unrestricted in Texas and Arizona. (First-hand information like that is one of the benefits of people on site.) So first, we help Texas. Second, with that fed policy it’s likely the chaos will spread. It’s an opportunity to learn and understand, just in case.
I can’t go because of finances, family, my job, etc. – Only a relative few are needed to actually go. There are lots of ways to be involved here at home. But it’s critical that a few go, to gain experience and knowledge working with others. So if you can’t go, support those who can.
This will be an ongoing effort. The 2nd Texas team comes back this week. A 3rd goes back early September. We also have an individual going to the AZ border. No teams needed there for now.
