Also he challenges everyone to send in a picture of the cheapest a gallon of gas cost everyone around country since gasoline wholesale prices hit $1.39/gallon Tuesday.

Becoming An American Patriot The III%

Recently we have been consumed with requests to get involved with American Patriot the III% and we appreciate and love the response. Not sure if it is the fear and overwhelming feeling that something is going to happen or if it is just people waking up and wanting to belong, either way we are appreciative. It is because of the number of requests that in some cases we are slow to reply. We will reply back to all the requests, don’t you worry. Please don’t stop. In the mean time though, I figured I’d give you some ideas of how you can get involved in the patriots and 3% until we get back to you.

Patriot:
noun
1.
a person who loves, supports, and defends his or her country and its interests with devotion.
2.
a person who regards himself or herself as a defender, especially of individual rights, against presumed interference by the federal government.

As American patriots, we love our country, the people, and our god given rights, no where does it say we have to love the leadership. We may agree with leadership sometimes, but it has been a long time since that leadership has respected the people. Within the patriot community, there is the “ugly red headed step child” known as the three percent. Many rumors fly around the threepers, mostly bad, but only because the three percent are the patriots that take action. True threepers do not harm the innocent as media and government entities would like people to believe. We strive for the least drastic coarse of action. We are a group of action though, so we make our voices heard loud with protests and rallies. To be a Threeper is to not hide in the shadows with your patriotic beliefs.

American Patriot the III% or APIII for short has chapters in almost every state or multiple in some states. For direct immediate contact with your state chapter, if you have Facebook, go to our resources page and click on your state flag on the left. To email your state chapter, use the email address on the right of the same page. Our forum is also available.

APIII off line is involved in food drives for veterans in need with our Operation Hunger Smash program, state and zone chapters training weekends and meetings, rallies and protests, help protect the borders, and operate CERTs. Despite popular belief APIII is not a militia but members do work closely with and may belong to various constitutional militias around the country. Our organization works with other pro-constitutional groups.

The core of APIII is made up of patriots from many walks of life. We have veterans, current military, civilians, and first responders, but all of us our focused on one thing, the defense of the rights of the people. All of us have day jobs or night jobs, some cases both, but we sacrifice precious time away from our families and friends in some cases to further the cause. If you truly want to become a part of the APIII, until we can properly bring you into the fold, you can start in your own community. Meet with your local politicians and law enforcement, find out where they stand with the constitution. Volunteer to help first responders and keep your community safe, become a sheep dog in your community. Start your own food drives for the needy, not all the needy are leeches on the system, a lot are truly bad times or disabled. Continue to prepare your family for a worst case scenario and teach your neighbors too. If we as a society ever have a chance to recover, we must do it as a community

You May Be Prepared, But What About Your Pets

You may have a years worth of food and water stored for you and the family, but what about for your dog or cat? I know some of you may be asking yourself “why have pets in a SHTF”? Personally I wonder why you wouldn’t? Sure they are another mouth to feed and more waste to dispose of, but you forget about the benefits. Dogs are one of the best security guards you could have. Dogs have much better hearing and sense of smell than us that they can sense other people and animals in the area long before we will. The barking and growling of your protective pet may also deter people from trying to take your preps. Cats may not deter people from raiding your food, but they can keep mice and rats from getting into your stuff. One other benefit that everyone overlooks, comfort and normalcy in a very stressful situation. When it hits the fan, having the comfort of your furry companion may bring you or especially your kids a normal relaxation and peace of mind at times. IMG_5373.JPG
Prepping for your pets is no different than prepping for you, only items oriented for your pet. Your pet requires food, water, and medicine like anyone else only modified for them. Dogs generally require more food and water than cats, not just because of size difference. Dogs require a high protein diet to keep up on their energy for as active as they are. Unfortunately it is the high protein or crude proteins in dry dog food that make it hard to store for long term. There are a few specialty long term storage dog and cat foods out there, but they are quite a bit of money such as a 30lb tub of 15 year storage food by Legacy Food Storage.

The problem with the protein and dry food is that it is only dried about enough to avoid mold, but if you try to vacuum seal it, it will go rancid in the package. Not sealing the dry food and just leaving it in the factory package on the shelf causes it to dry and harden over time till it’s hard as rock. Optimally, canned food is the cheapest long term storage option. Now don’t go out and buy a bunch of canned dog or cat food unless your pet already eats it, switching them to it suddenly without it being used to it can cause diarrhea which will dehydrate your pet and possibly give them an agonizing death. Also relying on your pet to live off the land is a no go as well. It is quite possible and more than likely that most areas will be over hunted over time and letting your pets hunt for their own food will just cause it sooner. Leaving your animal to hunt for it’s own food may bring out their “primal” instincts and become dangerous to you and your family just like in the survival fiction story, One Second After, by William R. Forstchen. I have also heard from people that they just planned on sharing their own food with their animals. Yes, your pets would love you to share, but our food is not going to have the same nutrients at the same levels that they need causing them to essentially slowly starve. Storing specific food for your furry friends are the easiest way to continue enjoying their companionship in a disaster.

IMG_4909.JPG
Remember that you four legged friend needs water. On the plus side, water will be easier to take care of thank food for pet preps. I would still plan on a gallon of water a day, but since you will not be bathing or cleaning your pet as much as us people require for a healthy existence, you probably won’t go through any where close to a gallon for most pets. You can never have too much water stored and if you count on a gallon a day for your dog and it only drinks a quarter or half gallon that day, you have that excess to use for someone else.

Pet health and hygiene can be just as crucial as your own. Keeping your cat or dog’s fur trimmed and brushed will help control fleas and ticks from coming in the house with them and off you and your family. Store away a brush or two for them along with manual hair clippers and nail trimmers specifically for your pets. It is little things like flea bites or your pets long nails scratching you, that could lead to family members dying from infection in a SHTF world. A natural method to keep your pets free of pests is bathing them in a high concentrate mint tea, also gives them a better smell than wet dog. Stock up on any over the counter pet meds you can as well, but also look at some of the human medicine that can be used with you pet as well such as peptobismo. I suggest buying or putting together a first aid kit for them along with a first aid or veterinary manual too.

IMG_5371.JPG
I hope I have helped you and your pet’s preparedness. My furry companions are just as important to me as any other member of the family, I hope this has been a wake up to make sure that your four legged family members are not over looked. If you have any other suggestions, please leave a comment. Thank you.

Jade Helm 2015….

I have been told that we should keep everyone updated on Jade Helm ’15 repeatedly. “We need to alert everyone to troop movements”, “Oh I saw a cattle train car, there aren’t cows anywhere around”. These are the comments I am getting and also seeing around the web.
IMG_5385.JPG
You want an update? It is a military training exercise. That is it. Do we have control over it, no. Is it training for martial law? You find me any actual proof of martial law and not just he said/she said “yellow” journalism then I would believe it more. If anything, the paranoia over JH is turning out to be a great tool for the government making patriots look like a bunch of wack a doos to the fence sitters. I am sorry if this pisses you off, but these are the facts that we know. The Oath Keepers organization have recently drove some of their original members and most influential supporters away over their recent stance of pushing “news” coverage of JH. Jack Spirko, host of The Survival Podcast, has been a major supporter of Oath Keepers called out his friend and OK founder, Stewart Rhodes on a recent episode of his podcast over it. In the episode (episode 1591), he said that him and several other OKs were leaving the organization, but would continue to honor their oath of service, but that the organization was only running with JH coverage to drive increase membership and exposure. American Patriot the III% founder, Scot Seddon, has also set a no Jade Helm policy on our national group. Why you ask, because there is nothing any of us can do to stop them that isn’t going to force the training to become reality.

No one has released a definitive answer as to what the training is for, but jumping to every negative conclusion is not an answer. Martial law is a big answer that most jump to, to the point where I get told that a large group of people are being detained in a city that has less of a population than what is being claimed as to being detained in it… Oh yeah and I work in said city at the same time… Calm down… Jade Helm could be anything from training locally for riot control (which is bad, but just one possibility), to training for invading a foreign power that we are having issues with like Syria or Iraq to root out ISIS, or even dealing with a local country breaking into civil war (“cough-cough mex cough ico cough”) and said war spilling across our borders. Now are any of those confirmed, no.

All that being said, we are not saying to ignore the training, we still encourage you to be alert and if YOU (not your friend’s, friend) see or hear something, say something. We have an email set-up specifically to contact us for that reason at, greyman@APIIINation.com. “Ok, so what can I do”? Continue prepping and training, that is what you can do and that is what is in your circle of influence. Don’t live in fear, your fear and panic over JH15 is spreading more fear and panic and false info. Have more faith in the men and women serving in our armed forces to honor their oaths to defend the constitution. If we see actual evidence that Jade Helm is violating American rights, then we will alert you. We are staying vigilant as should you, but remember, the government does not have the resources to detain all patriots simultaneously, the warning will go out long before we are all locked up.

Why Made In America Is So Much More Important Now

With the Pacific Trade Accord wrapping up, buying “made in America” is so much more important. Congress has recently conceded victory to President Obama’s fast track to the Trans-Pacific Partnership. I am in no way a fan of labor unions, but I understand the possible consequences of the TPA has over the American economy. Democrats are warning that this has the same consequences as the effect of the North American Free-Trade Agreement (NAFTA) did in the 90’s.

With NAFTA, we were promised 200,000 jobs in two years. Thank you, President Bush 1, and thank you, President Clinton, for that. We lost 680,000 net jobs

said Senator Sherrod Brown, the democrat leading the fight against the TPA.

I am not saying to buy union, I am saying buy American when ever possible. Every bit helps keep an American employed.

Political Affiliation

With Rand Paul announcing his run for presidential election in 2016, I’d like to point out that despite what media and a lot of left-wing shit stirrers are claiming is false. Just because the threepers do not like King Obama, does not mean that we all rally around a republican candidate. People have been lead to believe we have a two party system and they have been buffaloed enough to the point that states only have a two party primary.

IMG_4779.JPG

I, myself believe that there is not a candidate out there that can fully fix the damage inflicted by either of the primary parties. This however does not mean that I’m willing to throw in my hat and wait for the second shot heard round the world to kick off. I carefully watch each of the potential politicians and gauge their knowledge or belief in our Constitution and belief in our natural rights that are protected by the Bill of Rights. As of right now, two stand out as potentials. I consider myself to be a constitutionalist, I would prefer to go back to the essence of which our country was founded on. Many of the 3% feel the same, others are just personal liberty minded individuals that are true libertarians or tea party.

IMG_4778.JPG

I hope someday we can reset this system and see more candidates from Libertarian, Veterans, and Constitutionalist candidates. Unfortunately it would also bring more of the communist and socialist parties.
