Three ShieldWall Network events at once on 2/17/18!

Saturday, February 17th, the ShieldWall Network will participate in a trifecta, three events at once, a feat not attempted by any White Nationalist organization since White Revolution pulled off three anti-illegal immigration demonstrations in one day in different locations over a decade ago.

While some ShieldWall Network Phalanx members are helping provide security at the Traditionalist Worker Party event at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, and still others will be participating in the Confederate flag rally in Harrison, Arkansas with the League of the South and The Knights Party, where a regional commander of the ShieldWall Phalanx will be calling in live to the StormFront Action radio program to report on the rally, the regular ShieldWall Network meeting will take place as scheduled in north-central Arkansas, followed by a ShieldWall Phalanx training session there.

If you are near any of these areas and would like to get active and involved, e-mail roper_billy@yahoo.com for details. Don’t tell your grandkids that you were just too scared.

San Francisco Bay Area Experiences Mass Exodus Of Residents

SAN JOSE (KPIX 5) – “The number of people packing up and moving out of the Bay Area just hit its highest level in more than a decade.

Carole Dabak spent 40 years living in San Jose and now she’s part of the mass exodus that is showing no signs of slowing down.

The retired engineer’s packing up and calling it quits about to move to the state of Tennessee.

“I loved it here when I first got here. I really loved it here. But it’s just not the same,” Dabak said.

Of course people come and go from the Bay Area all the time, but for the first time in a long time, more people are leaving the Bay Area than are coming in. And the number one place in the country for out-migration is now, right here…

…Dabak cites crowding, crime and politics as the reasons for her own exodus.

“We don’t like it here anymore. You know, we don’t like this sanctuary state status and just the politics,” she said.”

Pioneer Foods We Will All Be Eating Again After Doomsday

by Jacob Hunter

Primal Survivor

When we talk about the pioneers, it is usually as people who sought out a better life where they could exercise their religion in freedom.  In focusing on their pursuit of freedom, we often gloss over the fact that the early pioneers were incredibly brave…

And also incredibly self-sufficient.

There were hardly any stores along the Oregon Trail (or the numerous other pioneer trails) where they could pick up provisions.  They had to know how to forage their own food and cook meals out of practically nothing.

Even once they were settled, the pioneers still had to be resilient.  A single storm could take out half a year’s worth of food supplies.  There wasn’t any refrigeration and even home canning didn’t become common until later (which, of course, you’d need access to jars to do!).

I personally find all aspects of pioneer life fascinating: how they organized labor, how they handled medicine, how they built their homes…

But how the pioneers ate is one of the most fascinating aspects of their life.  It gives you insight into how creative and hard-working they were in their endeavors to sustain their families in tough situations.

Below are some of the foods that the pioneers ate – and what we might be eating again if a disaster strikes.

Common Pioneer Foods

  • Bread: The pioneers didn’t have packages of yeast. They usually made their bread with the “salt-rising” method. The bread dough was mixed in a kettle while they were traveling.  Natural bacteria in the dough would make it rise. Then the dough was baked in the kettle over a campfire at night.  Read more about it here.
  • Cured Meat: Without refrigerators, meat was preserved either by smoke curing or salt curing. To salt cure meat, salt was rubbed into the meat.  The meat was then covered with salt for about 1 month, during which time more salt was continuously added. Bacon was a particular favorite of the pioneers. More about food preservation here.
  • Cornmeal, dried corn: The pioneers brought along dried corn and would grind it into meal to make cakes and breads.
  • Lard: Forget fancy olive oil! The pioneers used fat from animals to cook their food. It was a staple on the trail.
  • Eggs: Pioneers on the Oregon Trail did bring chickens along in crates tied to the backs of their wagons. However, it is doubtful that they laid eggs in the bumpy, stressful conditions.  Eggs were mostly used in pioneer recipes once they got settled.
  • Rabbits, squirrels and small game: These could be easily hunted along the way.
  • Squash: Squash, such as pumpkins, don’t spoil quickly and can also be found growing in the wild. The pioneers would make mashes and cakes out of them.
  • Dried fruit: To dry fruit, pioneers would lay the sliced fruit out in the sun.
  • Tubers (potatoes, turnips, etc.): These were also a pioneer favorite because they lasted a long time without spoiling. Tubers could also be foraged easily on the frontier.

Pioneer Recipes

Here’s some real pioneer recipes.  Not all of them are bad, so give ‘em a try!

Hardtack

Also called “sea biscuit,” hardtack was eaten by pioneers, sailors, and soldiers during war.  It is made of flour and water which are mixed together and baked for a long time in an oven.  During bad times, the pioneers often had nothing to eat but hardtack dipped into coffee.

Hoecake

Pioneers brought along dried corn because it didn’t spoil.  They could grind it into meal to make biscuits or “cakes.”  For hoecake, mix the following ingredients and fry on skillet:

  • 2 cups corn meal
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbs shortening

Pocket Yams

First make a campfire.  Once you’ve got a good amount of coals, you are ready to bake the yams (or potatoes).  Cover the yams with the coals and let them bake until steam is coming out of them – about 40 minutes.  Note that the yams shouldn’t be in the flames, just in the hot coals.

When the yams are done, DO NOT EAT THEM.

These yams are meant to go into your pocket to warm up your hands! This is just another cool way that pioneer mothers kept their families warm during the cold months.

Cooked Cabbage Salad

This recipe probably comes from German pioneers, who particularly loved cabbage dishes.  Make in a skillet:

  • 1 pint of chopped cabbage
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ¼ cup vinegar
  • 1 tsp butter
  • Salt and pepper

If they had it, the pioneers might add some sugar and a ½ cup of fresh cream to the cabbage.

Mormon Gravy

Gravy was slathered on top of vegetable pies, bread, or potatoes.  It added much-needed flavor and moisture to the bland, dry food.  To make it:

  • Heat up skillet with 3-4 tbsp of meat drippings
  • Add 3 tbsp of flour; stir constantly while browning the flour
  • Remove from heat and add 2 cups of milk; stir
  • Return to heat, stir constantly until mixture is smooth and thick
  • Season with salt and pepper

Bread Pudding

The pioneers didn’t waste anything.  So, they used stale bread to make bread pudding.

  • 2 cups cubed stale bread
  • 2 cups milk
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp butter or lard
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt

Put bread in a baking dish. In a saucepan, mix milk, sugar, and butter together. Remove from heat and whisk in eggs. Pour mixture over the bread.  Make at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

Thrift Fritters

The pioneers didn’t always know what foods they’d find.  For example, they might come back from a foraging trip with a few wild carrots, nettles, and wild onion.  These random veggies could be added to old mashed potatoes along with a beaten egg and some patties.  Form them into patties and fry in drippings to make a fritter.

Butterless, Eggless, Milkless Cake

This sounds like a recipe for a health-food cake, but it is really a pioneer classic!

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda dissolved in 2 tbsp of hot water
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder

To make, boil the first 8 ingredients (sugar through salt) together for a couple minutes.  Then add the baking soda, flour, and baking powder.  Bake in a flat pan at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

Tender Meat

The pioneers brought along cattle for milk and sometimes would butcher them.  They didn’t exactly have the most tender meat!  Other game wasn’t exactly tender either.

To tenderize the meat, they used this recipe:

  • Mix together 1 cup of fine breadcrumbs with some salt, pepper, thyme, or other herbs
  • Add enough milk to make a very thick dressing
  • Spread dressing over meat.
  • Roll up the meat and tie it with twine.
  • Brown the meat in fat.
  • Add ½ pint of water. Cover and cook until the meat is tender.

Corn Soup

Dried corn was a staple of the pioneers.  They made all sorts of things out of it, including soup.

The pioneer women would add whatever they had to the soup.  For example, they might boil together the dried corn with wild greens, potatoes, parsley, peppers, beans, eggs, and rice to make a hearty soup.

Bacon and Sourdough Pancakes

This one actually sounds good, right? It wouldn’t exactly pass modern health inspections though because the sourdough starter was made by leaving flour + water out for days.  The bacteria in the air would cause it to ferment.

You can read more about how to make sourdough here.

What do you think you’ll be cooking if a disaster hits and wipes out the grid?

Guns Are The Last Phase of Civil War

by Jonathan Peter Wilkinson

From Amerika.org

If amateur war planners do strategy and good journey professionals nail down the logistics, what then do the geniuses figure out? Networks. They do what Nick Sabin does in College Football. The Alabama Crimson Tide will already be halfway down the road to defending their recent National Championship before the first ball is snapped in Spring Practice. Why? They already built the mannerbund with years of Top Five recruiting classes. The logistics and strategy pretty much don’t matter anymore when ‘Bama plays Vandy or Texas Art and Music University. Once the team bus safely arrives, the Crimson Tide has a 99% probability of success.

So how does this relate to anything other than sportsball? Take away the Gawdallmiddy Crimson Tide and Tuscaloosa could very well have a subpar Montessori School instead of a university. Give me Coach Sabin’s budget and I’d say “Thank You!” Then sit on my ass, live off the proceeds, and never feel forced to wake up earlier than 7AM for the rest of my sorry existence. But that’s just the point. I don’t have Coach Sabin’s Dough-Rae-Me and don’t know how to legally talk anyone into handing it to me. 124 out of the 128 “Big-Time” college football coaches are working 80-hour weeks and are about as close to Coach Sabin’s level as I am. The typical head coach, even in SEC Land, is a pretty much a squirrel digging for a few remaining buried nuts. Darth Sabin gets to play a rigged game because he was smart enough to tie together the requisite rigging.

And that’s how the coming societal conflict in Amerika is playing out behind the scenes. Two sets of impostors and thugs are quietly picking their teams and lining up their mannerbunds. The Soroses and Bonos on one side and the Steve Wynns and The Koch Foundation on the other. Neither side has any brief for you or gives a damn about your future success. Both hate Donald J. Trump with the intense fire of about 1,000 blazing stars of Betelgeuse magnitude. Whether they are Team Blue or Team Red – NeverTrump Edition neither cares a fig about you accept to the extent that they can rape you for whatever it’s worth.

And why hate Trump so much? He competes against them for recruits. He is a 3rd way. As Alice Cooper once described it: “A new party, a third party, a wild party!” Donald J Trump was a way out. The bird you could flick to the detestable gaggle of Washington, DC turkeys. He represented the loud, angry shotgun to fire at the murder of officious and bureaucratic crows.

He broke the monopoly and now they worry as both sides gather their armies on the darkling plain of a dying Amerikan Civilization. Just as Trump broke the Cuck line, The Officially Official Left now faces an insurgency of its own. Many on the far fringes of the Left believe they have found their Maud D’ib..

The radical transformation Sanders seeks is surprisingly hard to pin down, but the increasingly popular idea that drives him and his fans is clear: In their minds, government is and should be the primary solution to every single problem in the world. “What kind of morals do these people have?” he booms, questioning Republican spending cuts as supporters nod in solemn approval. Government spending, of course, does not always relate to “morals,” and “progressive” policies often fail to help the poor in rather disastrous ways. But no matter: They’re rolling, people. Buckle up, and get ready to feel the Bern.

And this is the opportunity afoot. There is no Nick Sabin here when it comes to having a monopoly on where Amerika goes next. The Cathedral is still powerful and the Deep State still packs a nasty rip tide. However, neither boasts an immaculate pope. And in the end the Left will never offer you any radical transformation. It all gets back to the politics of Who and Whom. Who applies “The Bern” or The Drumpfenreich to whom. While they struggle to organize, there is hope they can be laid to nines and deposed.

And what of Amerika while these overgrown infants seek the power to despoil and exploit us rather than to lead? It goes further down hill. Our diversity becomes our the fault lines of our crystalline fracture. Our arguments over who has what privilege become the facile disingenuous justifications of the blackguards, the wag halters and the ne’er-do-wells. The parasite tax of our welfare and affirmative actions systems become the fountainhead of our resentments. Our arguments become our undying vendettas. And then, as Daniel Greenfield so eloquently puts it.

But it’s not guns that make a civil war. It’s politics. Guns are how a civil war ends. Politics is how it begins.

So the intelligent questions become as follows. How do we defuse the politics? How do we find the right people to stand in our viking circle when it all winds down and the guns come out? The political, social and moral restoration of Freedom of Association and an aristocracy of virtue, competence and valor as the highest of American values will kill the current divisive politics. The proper selecting of your mannerbund will properly man your Viking Circle. The bar is closing and it may well be tending towards last call. As T.S. Eliot put simply put it.

HURRY UP PLEASE ITS TIME
If you don’t like it you can get on with it, I said.
Others can pick and choose if you can’t.

And after last call…

2018 StormFront Conference Planned

by Billy Roper

The ShieldWall Network has been asked by StormFront to organize and plan the 2018 StormFront Conference once again this year, and to coordinate security for the event. I have accepted their request, and as time nears we will hold planning meetings to formulate our plans. Many of you may be asked by myself or one of our representatives to take part in the planning or security for the event, and we hope that you will join with us this year in making it another great success!

AR-15 .223 vs Mil-Spec 5.56mm Chambers

By Jerry Kraus

The Shooter’s Log

What is the biggest difference between AR-15 .223 and Mil-Spec 5.56mm chambers? Most people do not know; they say, “I think you can shoot both kinds of ammo through either one, right?”

Then, they buy an AR-15 and start to get more educated. Frequently, they later have regrets they did not get the AR with a chamber they wanted because they did not know what to ask.

We are going to cover the major options in AR-15 chambers, including Mil-Spec chambers and the benefits of each. I am going to limit this to .223 Rem. and 5.56mm chambers and will address ARs with other calibers, such as .308 (7.62×51 NATO), in the future.

There are three types of chambers in the M16/M4/AR-15/MSR family of rifles, but most people think there are only two.

  • The first is the Mil-Spec 5.56mm chamber, which is used in the M16 and M4.
  • The second is the .223 chamber, the most common chamber in AR-15 rifles, although you can get AR-15s with a 5.56mm chamber (why you would want that is very interesting and I go into that in detail below).
  • The third is a .223 Match chamber, which is used in AR-15s by serious competitive AR-15 shooters.

.223 Rem Chamber

First, let us cover the most common AR-15 chamber, the .223 Remington chamber, commonly called .223 Rem. or just .223. Most AR-15s also come with chrome-lined chambers and barrels. It does not make sense in the manufacturing process to only have the bore (barrel) or only the chamber chrome lined, so if you read a spec sheet that says an AR has a “chrome-lined barrel,” you safely may assume the chamber is chrome lined as well.

.223 chambers are made to SAAMI (Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers Institute) specs, not Mil-Spec, so the chambers are slightly tighter and smaller than Mil-Spec 5.56 chambers. Normally, that is not a problem since the most plentiful ammo available to civilians is .223 and not 5.56mm. But many people buy ARs with .223 chambers because they do not know any better, and then they find out there are drawbacks to ARs with .223 chambers.

Drawback #1: The Myth of Using 5.56 mm Ammo in a .223

The first drawback to .223-chambered ARs is the myth that you can shoot 5.56mm Mil-Spec ammo through it. Manufacturers that print the two calibers on rifles and in rifle manuals synonymously further perpetuate that myth.

.223 Rem vs. 5.56mm Nato

You can shoot 5.56 through your .223 chambered AR-15—but you may regret it.

Since 5.56mm Mil-Spec ammo is loaded hotter, it has higher chamber pressure. Built to SAAMI specs, not Mil-Spec, the .223 chamber is ever so slightly smaller than a 5.56 Mil-Spec chamber. So when you shoot 5.56 in a .223 chamber, the case cannot expand as much as it would in a 5.56 chamber.

Therefore, a couple of things happen with varying frequency. The most common is that you will blow primers; that means you will have the primer blow back into the receiver, which decreases reliability as it rattles around in your receiver or on top of your magazine.

You also will experience an increase in failures to eject the spent cases because the case has expanded so much from the hotter load in the smaller chamber, and you may not get the case out of the chamber without putting a rod down the barrel. Shooting Mil-Spec ammo through a .223 chamber also may crack your upper receiver; this is less common, but still happens, and is potentially dangerous to the shooter and nearby people.

So you can shoot 5.56 through a .223 chamber, but it is highly inadvisable.

Drawback #2: Heavy Bullets

The second big drawback to a .223 chamber is shooting heavier ammo—77 grains and above. This is the preferred bullet weight for national match shooters and snipers. The problem is that those rounds are slightly longer than lighter AR ammo, so the projectile is sticking slightly farther down the barrel when you chamber the round.

The problem becomes very obvious when you try to eject the heavier bullet-weight round from the chamber without firing it. This happens because the heavier projectile is slightly longer. On occasion, the rifling grooves may grab it when you try to eject it. The result is that you pull your charging handle back and the case comes off the bullet, spilling unspent powder on the receiver (and your magazine if you did not remove it first). As it ejects, you are left with a projectile in the barrel, and you will need a cleaning rod to knock it out. Then you will have a mess, and it is not fun—especially when you are on the firing line at Camp Perry competing for the national championships.

Match Chambers

This brings us to the .223 Match chamber. Most .223 Match chambers are not chrome lined. The biggest difference in .223 Match chambers is that the rifling does not begin as quickly, so you do not have the problems referenced above with the case coming off the projectile if you try to eject a live round from the chamber. This is the preferred chambering for serious competitive shooters who like to compete at the national level, such as at the NRA National High-Power Long Range matches and CMP (Civilian Marksmanship Program) matches at Camp Perry, Ohio, each summer.

Mil-Spec Chambers

Then there are Mil-Spec 5.56mm chambers. These are always chrome lined in the M16/M4s for the military and typically are for their semi-auto AR-15 brothers. The 5.56mm Mil-Spec chamber is slightly larger than a .223 SAAMI spec chamber because the Mil-Spec ammo is loaded hotter and has higher chamber pressures.

Benefit #1: Use Both .223 and 5.56 Ammo

So the supreme benefit of 5.56 chambers is that you can shoot .223 ammo and 5.56 out of a 5.56 chamber without reliability or safety concerns. That gives you the flexibility to take advantage of the great military surplus ammo bargains when they are available.

The downside is that, at greater distances, some shooters think they will see a decrease in accuracy shooting .223 ammo though a 5.56 chamber because the chamber is ever so slightly larger.

I think that is arguable. I know what you are thinking: “How much decrease in accuracy?” and “At what distances does it make a difference?”

I believe that 95% of shooters will not see a measurable difference, except at extreme distances for which they may not have the training to shoot effectively anyway. Remember, when it comes to shooting, most of the time “It’s the Indian, not the arrow.” Remember, I am talking about .223 ammo through a 5.56 chamber only—not 5.56 through a 5.56 chamber.

Benefit #2: The 5.56mm Chamber Has a Slightly Longer Throat

The second benefit of a 5.56mm chamber is that it also has a slightly longer throat/free bore area. In simpler English, that means that there is more space between the projectile and the rifling. Remember when I explained what happens when you try to eject a live round when it is 77 grains or above from a .223 chamber (not a .223 Match chamber)? Well that does not happen with 5.56mm chambers because of the longer throat.

Benefit #3: Availability of Ammo

The third benefit of having a 5.56mm chamber on your AR is a little paranoid, but not unfounded, although I pray it never happens. Some of my prepper fans out there believe there may be martial law one day in America, which would include an attempted disarmament of Americans.

In any case, nobody can argue that, in an extended time under martial law, you might only be able to get ammo by stealing it off the back of a Humvee—if you do not get shot trying to in the first place. I would want an AR-15 with a 5.56mm chamber so you can shoot military ammo through it without added potential reliability problems, and remember, you will still be able to shoot .223 ammo as well.

There is a way to ream out a .223 chamber and make it 5.56mm. I have heard that it is easy, although I have never done it. You might be able to find the reamer, but if I wanted that, I would have it done by a reputable gunsmith.

What should I buy?

So now you may be thinking, “This is really confusing; just tell me what I should get.”

So if I could only afford one AR, I would get one with a 5.56mm chamber.

I also would not trust the labeling on the spec sheet on the manufacturer’s website or even in the owner’s manual that any AR-15 is 5.56mm or .223/5.56mm. I have tested ARs lately that claim, in writing, .223/5.56mm on their website spec sheets and in the owner’s manual that came with the AR. When I called the manufacturer and asked if the chamber is 5.56mm or is it .223, the manufacturer tech help person dismissively told me it is both.

I stuck to my guns (forgive the pun) and said, “It can’t be both; either the chamber is SAAMI spec .223 Rem. or the chamber is Mil-Spec 5.56mm; which is it?”

Then, from one USA manufacturer, I received the response, “Well, it’s a .223 chamber, but you can shoot both through it.” Another USA manufacturer told me, “I can’t put you through to a tech person, but you can email me, and I will forward your email.”

I did email that customer-service person who could not answer my question, and I confirmed receipt of my email and that the rep forwarded it to the “appropriate person.” That was more than a week ago as of the time I am writing this, and still I have had no response. I will not own or recommend any of their ARs for the foreseeable future.

Until next time, I will share with you what Ron Mida, one of my shooting mentors always told me, “Shoot Straight!”

The Roper Report: One of These Things is Not Like the Other

The Roper Report

In “One of these things is not like the other”, listen to Mike Enoch of The Daily Shoah, Chris Quimby of The ShieldWall Network and Tom Kaczynski of New Albion discuss with Billy the rise of White ethno-states, balkanization, attacks on free speech, and who should be allowed into the White Nationalist movement under what circumstances.

Chris Quimby goes first, in an interview with Billy in which they discuss how activism has changed over the past two decades they have been working together in the movement. In addition to a few amazing and humorous ‘war stories’ from past demonstrations and rallies, they recount their memories of working with Dr Pierce, Pastor Butler, Tom Metzger and others, then discuss the progress and growth of the ShieldWall Network and the strengths and weaknesses of the Alt-Right today.

That discussion leads into Mike Enoch of The Daily Shoah’s sharing of his perspective on…
