Next Wednesday the Fortnite champion player Ninja will repeat pro-White slogans suggested by donors on Twitch. Just as a previous generation of millenials which grew up to be the Alt Right largely began by LOLberging unPC cringe on X Box, Gen Z is radicalizing while they recreate, too.
Here is another video game which gets them thinking and talking about the possibility of the United States of America balkanizing into competing regional mini-states.

No, we don’t live in the best of all possible worlds…
Martin Bemberg wants to abolish police and prisons, redistribute property and wealth, smash the patriarchy, overthrow White privilege, and some day go back to finish college.
This must be why the Boston Mountains ARA facebook page has been stale of late.
Those who are interested in more information about the candidate than is provided in the article below should read THIS expose of the Antifa member after he was unmasked following his arrest for attempting to deprive other citizens of their first amendment protected rights.

A longtime Fayetteville musician and socialist activist will challenge a two-time incumbent for a seat on the City Council this year.
Martin Bemberg, 30, is seeking the Ward 2, Position 1 seat currently held by Mark Kinion, who filed for a third term in the Nov. 6 election. Raymond Burks also filed as a candidate for the position.
As a lifelong resident of Ward 2, Bemberg graduated from Fayetteville High School and has senior standing at the University of Arkansas. He said he is on an extended sabbatical from his studies toward majors in Spanish and German.
Bemberg announced plans to run for election in 2012, but dropped out of the race about a month later. It was the second time Bemberg decided not to pursue previously announced plans for a council bid. In 2010, he told the Flyer he would run, but backed off those plans before the filing period began.
Meet the Candidates
The following candidates have filed for Fayetteville City Council in the Nov. 6 election.
Adam Fire Cat (coming soon)
John La Tour (coming soon)
As a musician fronted the longtime Fayetteville band Memphis Pencils, and has since played in several local acts including High Lonesome, Young Haircut and Luxemborg Trio. He also performs solo gigs and regularly appears at Pesto Cafe in Fayetteville.
Bemberg is an organizing committee member of an unofficial local chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America. He attends Unitarian Universalist church, and said the principles of the liberal religion guide his democratic socialist beliefs.
He said he wants to see radical democracy become a part of civic life in Fayetteville.
“Socialists have a sixth sense for injustice,” he said, adding that Fayetteville is not the “progressive paradise” some people claim it to be.
If elected, he said he’d support measures to address food insecurity, job creation, wage increases and public transit.
Filing for muncipal candidates ended on Aug. 17.
Profile: Martin Bemberg
Position sought: Ward 2, Position 1
Residency: Lifelong Fayetteville and Ward 2 resident
Employment: In-home caregiver
Education: Senior standing at the University of Arkansas (Spanish and German double major)
What made you decide to seek election to the council? Is it something you’ve been considering for a while?
The Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism guide my radical democratic socialist beliefs and praxis.
- The inherent worth and dignity of every person
- Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
- Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations
- A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
- The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large
- The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all
- Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part
And I am running as a radical Unitarian Universalist democratic socialist because the working people of Ward 2 want, and need, a left-wing alternative, embodied in these principles. I’m running because I want to see radical democracy become a part of civic life. What do I mean by radical democracy? I mean when we face the horrors of capitalism, of white supremacy, of patriarchy, we have recourse beyond voting in November. Socialists have a sixth sense for injustice, and so when I hear people talking about Fayetteville being a progressive paradise, for example, I have to ask: for whom? I’m very privileged as a white man who grew up in a household where books were cool, in the Historic District as the result of generational wealth, and so yeah, things are pretty much great — but for whom? Not for my food-insecure comrades, not for the disenfranchised who can’t find, get, or keep a job because they don’t have reliable transport because they can’t afford a car because they can’t find, get, or keep a job. And so I say, You should have what I have. That’s why I’m running.
And to smash the patriarchy. And to abolish police and prisons, ensure everyone enjoys at least a basic standard of living, and mobilize the electorate through class consciousness for the social revolution of which Rosa dreamt.
Is there anything in particular that drove you to reside in Ward 2? How would you describe that part of town?
I was born in Ward 2, in February of 1988, at the old Washington Regional (now UAMS), at the intersection of North and College. So, my parents having sex, I reckon is what drove me to reside where I do and I have all my life. But I stayed, which I think is what you’re really getting at, because rent was cheap — cheap enough for me to forego staying alone in my family home in the Historic District for free. There’s a reason rent is skyrocketing now. You can walk anywhere from Clunk Alley. Location is access. Equity is about access. Anyone downtown has easy access to food, medicine, books, shiny-happy people holding hands, music, queer spaces, and delightful, stimulating conversation — assuming she has money, health insurance, and doesn’t just want to ball up and cry and sleep and watch Netflix as soon as she gets home from work because capitalism and patriarchal violence are making her clinically ill.
And again I say: She should have what I have. This is also known as socialism.
Are there any recent council decisions you agree or disagree with?
When certain dolts at the Housing Authority decide to, in essence, send back federal grant money back to Housing and Urban Development — boy, that’ll show LBJ and convince people government can’t effectively provide public service…it seems like council members could do more than just advise these reactionary twerps to, like, please not. You know, I don’t really know what I’m talking about.
On the heels of getting radical leftists, including violent domestic terrorist Communists and Antifa, removed from their own meeting venue permanently, and disrupting liberal open border and pedophilia enabling rallies, the ShieldWall Network of East Tennessee has once again taken a bold stand to secure the existence of our people and a future for White children in their region.
“…Shortly after the rally began, five white nationalists — clad in all black and carrying signs that read “Abort Feminism,” “Unborn Lives Matter,” and “Mommy, why?” — marched up to the space where Badgett was speaking into a microphone. Some wore bandannas or masks to cover their faces; at least one sported various neo-Nazi tattoos.
As a handful of police officers stood by, a few attendees engaged the counter-protesters in a heated and wide-ranging debate that at times drowned out the speakers at the rally…

This weekend, August 31st through September 2nd, the Central Arkansas Democratic Socialists of America will seek to hold their leftist training conference at the main branch of the Little Rock Public Library. In addition to the radical abortion advocates and militant homosexuals and feminists, their group will include violently anti-law enforcement Anarchists, Communists, and Black Lives Matter activists, including self-identifying Antifa and revolutionaries. Many of their members have criminal records and are considered potential domestic terrorists.
Below is their itinerary for the weekend. They have the East Room and the Friborough Room, both on the first floor of the Little Rock public library’s main branch, all day Friday and Saturday.
Call and express your concern. It’s a safety issue. For the children. (501) 918-3000. People who would like to express their concern about the Antifa, Anarchists, and Communists of the Democratic Socialists of America meeting at the Little Rock main library this weekend, but have out of state numbers and don’t wish to call, can e-mail the library: firstname.lastname@example.org
The location of their radical leftist conference will be at Library Square, 100 S Rock St, Little Rock, AR 72201.
There’s nothing illegal or hard about calling and voicing your concern to the library staff. It’s risk free, entry level stuff that anyone can do. You’ve heard that some of the Antifa present for these events are radical anti-government activists and domestic terrorists. You’ve heard that opposing groups plan on protesting against their presence on one or both days, at the library. You wonder if the library has contacted the police for extra security.
Marvin Spencer, who has turned on other Antifa in recent days in a public feud over who hates law enforcement the most and is more radically anti-White, was the leak who told the world about the Central Arkansas Antifa vs. Red and Black Spa City tiff, the Ozarks Indivisible vs. IWW spat, AND the gave us the details of the Central Arkansas Democratic Socialists of America conference this weekend, allowing White Nationalists to respond. Thanks, Starvin’ Marvin! He’s a very helpful Uncle Tom informant.

They say that a curse by the devil is a blessing. The acrimony of faggots, niggers, kikes, and Communists must be a compliment, then.
When your pistol malfunctions during a range session, do you stop and look at it, dumbfounded? Do you set your pistol down and raise your hand for assistance because you aren’t sure how to remedy the problem? These are common reactions for a new shooter, but if you’re going to carry a pistol or keep one in the home for defensive purposes, you need to be your gun’s emergency roadside mechanic. After all, lives may depend on your ability to fix your gun and get back in the fight.
When pressing the trigger of your pistol produces a “click” instead of a “bang,” it’s time to employ the immediate-action technique, also known as “tap, rack, assess.” There are a few ways to accomplish this, but they all share some common traits.
The first step to clearing most malfunctions is to release your grip with your non-dominant hand and use your palm to slam the bottom of the magazine. The rationale is that the malfunction may have been caused by the magazine not being fully seated in the magazine well. “Tapping” the magazine will help ensure it’s locked in place.
Although this is an important first step, merely tapping the magazine won’t enable you to fire the pistol. You need to cycle the action to ensure any obstruction in the chamber is cleared and a new round is fed.
To facilitate this, reach over the pistol and pinch the slide between your fingertips and the heel of your palm. Be sure to grip behind the eject port so your hand doesn’t block the ejection port and induce a double-feed stoppage.
Grip established, rack the slide forcefully to the rear. Racking the slide is easier with the momentum generated by a quick, aggressive cycling action. To ensure the slide travels completely rearward and therefore has the most spring tension to drive it back into battery, at the same time push forward on the grip with your dominant hand.
When you release the slide, allow your non-dominant hand to strike your chest to confirm you don’t ride the slide as it travels forward. Riding the slide decelerates the slide’s forward movement and could prevent the pistol from going back into battery. A popular tweak to this technique is to rotate the pistol to the right—toward the ejection port—so gravity will help clear the spent casings or bad rounds from the pistol.
After tapping the magazine and racking the slide, quickly assess the condition of your pistol and the threat. If you cant the pistol slightly to the left, you’ll be able to see if the slide is completely forward. If it is, your gun should be ready to fire.
At this point, it’s time to determine if firing your pistol is an appropriate response. Does the assailant still present an imminent deadly threat, or has he fled, taken a hostage or given up? Remember your response must be based on the current actions of the assailant. Just because he presented a deadly threat 10 seconds ago doesn’t mean it would be legally justified to shoot him now.
When I was a new police officer 20 years ago, we were taught to clear a malfunction while keeping the arm extended, with the pistol oriented to the threat. This was intended to prevent your adversary from recognizing your pistol was not operational. Also, since your muzzle was still pointed at the threat, it was considered faster to aim your pistol when the stoppage was remedied.
Today, most pistol instructors advocate keeping the gun close to the body while clearing a malfunction. After all, a seamstress doesn’t thread a needle with fully extended arms. Doing so would be quite frustrating and time-consuming. While sewing may not be an urgent endeavor, clearing a malfunctioned pistol certainly is.
In the modern version of the immediate-action technique, bring the gun toward your body and orient the magazine toward your non-dominant side. This positions it perfectly for a firm palm strike to the bottom of the magazine to ensure it’s fully seated.
Rather than racking the slide as described earlier, instructors like Dave Spaulding advocate a different technique. Rather than grip the slide with your fingertips and hand—thumb facing toward you—turn your hand over, thumb facing away.
Grip the slide with your thumb and as many fingertips as you can fit onto the slide. This is a more natural motion than gripping with your thumb facing toward you.
With this method, instead of rotating the pistol to the right—toward the ejection port—rotate the pistol to the left. This may seem counterproductive, but when you consider you are rotating the gun until the top of the slide is in about the seven o’clock position, it’s easy to see that gravity will still help clear the ejection port of spent casings or unfired rounds gumming up the works.
Again, rotating the pistol inward is more natural than rotating it outward. Many equate this to pouring out a beverage. You would almost certainly invert your cup by rotating it inward. It’s easier to turn the cup upside down this way. Your pistol is really no different.
The immediate-action sequence won’t clear a double-feed. If you’ve already performed the sequence and the pistol still won’t fire, or if you recognize that your pistol has a double-feed before executing immediate action, here’s what you need to do.
First, you must remove the magazine from the pistol. Depending on the pistol and magazine you’re using, you may simply be able to grasp the bottom of the magazine firmly and strip it from the pistol. However, on certain pistols and with certain magazines, this won’t work. In these cases, you will have to first lock the slide to the rear by pressing up on the slide stop while fully retracting the slide.
How will you know whether you can get away with not locking the slide to the rear? Practice with your carry gun and magazine. This is something you need to know before you’re fighting for your life.
My police training taught me to drop the magazine after stripping it from the gun. After all, the magazine could be the culprit. But police officers typically carry at least two spare magazines.
What if the magazine you strip from the pistol is your your only one? When the magazine in your pistol is all you’ve got, secure it under your shooting-side armpit until you’ve cleared the malfunction.
After removing the magazine, invert the pistol and cycle the slide until the chamber is clear. Most instructors recommend racking the slide three times. Once or twice may not be enough, and if the third time isn’t a charm, chances are neither will subsequent attempts. If you see the spent casing eject after the first time you rack the slide, you can move on.
At this point, you have an empty pistol. If you have a spare magazine, load it into the pistol, but don’t forget you still need to rack the slide to chamber a round. If you had only one magazine, retrieve it from under your arm, load and rack the slide. This is not a particularly complicated process, but it must be practiced extensively because it needs to happen ASAP.
Speaking of practice, have you considered that an injury to your hand or arm may require you to clear a malfunction one-handed? If you understand what needs to occur mechanically to fix your gun, the technique for one-handed malfunction clearing is really no mystery.
The immediate-action sequence can be performed by tapping the bottom of the magazine on your knee, hooking the rear sight or ejection port on your belt, holster, boot or other solid object and racking the slide. No big deal, although it’s something you really need to practice.
For safety, this technique and the following one should be practiced initially with dummy rounds. You must be mindful that your muzzle isn’t pointed at you or anyone else. Only when you are proficient with these techniques using inert training rounds should you even consider practicing them with live rounds. When you do, start slowly, with safety always being the most important consideration.
The next technique deals with clearing a double-feed with only one hand. For a right-handed shooter executing a right-handed-only double-feed clearance, hook the rear sight or ejection port on your belt, holster or other hard object while pushing up on the slide stop with your thumb and racking the slide completely rearward.
With the slide locked open, hook the magazine on a pocket and press the magazine release then rip the magazine from the pistol. If that’s your only magazine, you will need to pick it up because it’s kind of important.
With the magazine ejected, hook the rear sight or ejection port on something and cycle the slide as previously described to clear the chamber. Holster the pistol. Insert the magazine. Draw the pistol and hook the rear sight or ejection port on an object to cycle the slide and chamber a round.
As you probably guessed, clearing a double-feed left-handed can be more difficult—especially for right-handed shooters but even for lefties, since few guns offer ambidextrous slide locks and you have to deal with controls on the other side of the gun.
The pistol doesn’t care which hand you use to clear it. As far as the pistol is concerned, the same thing is happening.
To lock the slide back with the left hand, you’ll need to apply upward pressure on the slide stop with your left index finger rather than your right thumb. Similarly, you’ll need to press the magazine release with your left index finger while stripping out the magazine with the help of your pocket.
From there, cycle the slide until the spent casing is ejected. If your holster is on your right side because you’re a right-hander, you’ll need to place the gun between your knees or kneel and secure it behind your bended knee (with the muzzle facing away from you). Insert the magazine. Hook the slide or ejection port and rack the slide to chamber a round.
And remember that if you’re dealing with a malfunction in real life while facing a deadly threat, if “tap, rack, assess” doesn’t address the problem, running to cover is an excellent second step when such a move is possible.
Guns malfunction. Murphy’s Law dictates this will occur at the most inopportune time. That’s why it’s important to have an immediate and reliable solution to clear any type of pistol stoppage.
When your handgun malfunctions in the middle of a fight, don’t contemplate it—fix it.

Tactical and Survival
Out of food? Go to Trader Joe’s! But what if there is not a Trader Joe’s? 7-11 will do, right? Who doesn’t like a Slurpee and beef jerky? No 7-11 you say? Yes, when disaster strikes, there might be a possibility that stores will not be of service and you will have to rely on Mother Nature to supply your food. After all, 7-11 or no, you still have to eat. It’s crucial that you avoid vitamin and nutrient deficiencies if you want to stay alive!
If you want to stay nourished, you know you should keep a nice survival food stash. It’s only one of the most discussed survival topics! Dried or canned meats, dried fruits, nuts, peanut butter, and canned vegetables are good examples of highly nutritious foods to keep around. In order to survive, keeping yourself nourished is absolutely essential, especially if you want to avoid deficiencies.
Depending on the vitamin or mineral, deficiencies can affect the body in many different ways. Everything from major illnesses or depression can be attributed to deficiencies, and can affect all parts of the body, so deficiencies are not something you can take lightly.
- Vitamin A deficiencies may include slow bone formation, night blindness, dry eyes which can lead to blindness, increased susceptibility to cold and virus infections, and frequent infections of the bladder or urinary tract.
- There are six different types of vitamin B: B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, and B12. Deficiency of any of these B vitamins can range from mild to severe symptoms like chronic fatigue, muscular weakness, or dry cracked skin to dementia and depression.
- Vitamin C deficiency symptoms include dry hair and skin, weakness, nosebleeds. Severe deficiency of vitamin C can lead to scurvy which rare but not impossible.
- A deficiency of Vitamin D can lead to irritability and depression, as well as bone and muscle problems including, but not limited to, rickets, osteoporosis, and skeletal deformities and retardation in young children. Vitamin D deficiencies can also increase your risk of Type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. Vitamin D is a critical vitamin found in many foods ranging from egg yolks, salmon and sweet potatoes, and has many healthy attributes ranging from mental clarity and focus to maintaining the proper amount of calcium in your blood.
Given that other vitamins and minerals perform essential functions in our bodies, deficiencies can cause major problems for our bodies if we don’t properly keep up with healthy food intake. Deficiencies can lower our chances of survival during a chaotic situation such as a major disaster. While the effects of vitamin deficiencies may take a while to appear, the effects tend to linger once they do.
Many crucial nutrients can be found in nature. The most essential nutrients are (in order of importance) protein, carbohydrates, fat, salt and potassium. Protein is most commonly found in meat and fish, but protein is also found in dairy and nuts. Carbohydrates are found in grains, fruits, and a lot of dairy products: dairy products actually contain more carbohydrates than protein. Fat, which is critical for energy and protecting the body from extreme temperatures, is found in many foods, but the most preferred portable sources of fat are peanut butter, canned fish (sardines in particular), nuts, and dried coconut, as well as many food bars. Salt and potassium, which regulate heart and muscle functions, are also found in many natural foods. Potassium is commonly found in fruits and vegetables, such as bananas, cantaloupe and broccoli, but is also found in yogurt and white beans. Salt is found naturally in meats and nuts, and most vegetables have at least some natural salts.
Disaster can strike when you least expect it, so it’s good to be prepared! Proper nourishment is very important in everyday life, but imagine if you had no other option butto stay properly nourished to stay alive. To survive in the wild with limited resources, keep the following in mind:
- Fish has a ton of survival nutrients, including many necessary vitamins and minerals (something many people aren’t aware of);
- Some sort of edible wild berries grow in most US states and are rich in vitamins, C, E and K;
- Meat is rich in protein fat, iron and minerals;
- Mushrooms are a great source of vitamin D;
- Many US states have watercress and asparagus, which are rich in vitamin C, B, Folate and a lot more;
- Dandelions make a good salad.
Get ready now by studying local edible plant live, make sure you have plenty of seeds to plant a garden and continue to grow your food stash. A fun fact before you go: most basic essential vitamins can be found in broccoli and Brussels sprouts!
