Very disturbing news learned this weekend: The K Army

One of the agents that came from a southern province to participate in the CQB class told me something pretty disturbing.
A local Union leader approaching him about what he could do with this card he had been given. The card was a carry permit, simply impossible to get for legal gun owners.
This person said it had been simply given to him and that most local union bosses, community social movement leaders and road blocker bosses were getting it. 3.000 permits have been distributed among these guys, most of them supposedly unemployed and needing a social plan to live and in many cases with an extensive criminal back ground.

The woman (the one on the left) in this picture standing next to president Kirchner is Miliagros “Mili” Salas, ex drug addict and prostitute. She used to live on the streets and decided to get involved in politics after spending 8 months in prison.

She now gets over 10 million dollars per year directly from the Ks, moves around with at least 6 SUVs all around her full of armed thugs and beats up and intimidates those that don’t comply with the Ks.
She has more power in her province, Jujuy, than the governor, and freely walks into the presidential house in Buenos Aires to insult secretaries or Ministers if she feels like it.
Last year she registered 100 firearms for her crash force. When the local authorities refused to do so because of the dark past of those to whom the firearms would be issued, orders came directly from Buenos Aires to comply.

Her counterpart in Buenos Aires, Luis Delia, has taken some of his people to receive combat training in Chavez’s Venezuela.
Now, this is all confirmed information. I checked on line and found several articles and media websites, and there’s been criminal charges presented by the political leaders of the opposition. Of course, these cases will be shelved and everything will go on as usual.
There’s also reports of AK rifles arriving from Venezuela to Ezeiza international airport and carried away by ambulances.

Information about military officers, police sheriffs, their location and families, even information about legal firearm owners has been given to these groups in case they need to take action against them.

Why is all this happening? The K’s are openly against the military and a large sector of the police. The police they are slowly trying to change with their own people but they’ve always treated the military as enemies so they aren’t counting on them. That’s why the Ks are creating their parallel “social” army.
Oh, yes. This does freak me out as its clear that no good can come from this, an unofficial army across the country that are above the law, ready to strike anyone opposing.

Now, trying to learn from this and drawing parallelisms:

1) You guys don’t have our pitiful 3rd world society but its not crazy to imagine that some … “underprivileged ” groups, organized in social welfare in local neighborhoods, fierce supporters of the nanny state that keeps them financed may end up doing something similar.

2) Do all you can to remain below radar. Firearms should be purchased without paper trail if possible. Don’t become a fat target to hit if such a group ever gets hold of ATF lists. “We promise we wont tell anyone about your guns” isn’t good enough. The list of firearm owners and address do exist. Make sure you’re not in it or that you’re at least not in that address.

3) Talk to people “in the know” to know about these things happening.

4) Get involved politically so that these things never happen in your country!

Oh boy, does this sound familiar! Barry Hussein made the same reference to a "civilian defense force" to rival the Army on the campaign trail. Sounds like he and Kirchner would be BFF's. I think he makes no secret of his disdain for our armed forces.. refering to them as "corpse-men".

Watch yer back mate it looks like someone is planning a country wide lock down!..maybe its something to do with the Malvinas/Falklands.

With 300,000,000 firearms(approx) in the U.S. and 100,000,000 owners (approx). This could get interesting. I guess that's why the phrase "and they lived happily ever after" is only found in fairy tales.

Not cool man, I worry about you and your country.

No matter how much things change, when it comes to dictators, there are only two things you need to keep an eye on; money and guns.

I mentioned before that a friend of mine who's been living in Cordoba for a while told me about a K-backed guerilla band hanging out in the mountains. It's too bad because I really liked the area and would have been willing to invest in it and move out there someday. Seems like the Sierras of Uruguay is my top choice. Can't be working my ass off for years trying to make some money to get some stable ground under my feet only to have thugs killing me and my family or doing whatever they like. It'd be better to buy less land for more money in a more tranquil area and just lease land for business purposes as needed.

Whether, you like it or not, to get a CCW you have to divulge a lot of personal information, including your prints. I suspect, if some confiscation ever happened in the US, CCWer would be first on the target list.

how have people allowed this to happen to them around the world?

My 10 year old son asked me the other day; "What country can we go to, Daddy?" I did not have an answer for him.

That was the morning that I took him shooting at a private range we go to. Good time to teach the boy about the manly arts.

ferfal...couldn't find anywhere else to tell you this but your blog is one of the best HOWEVER your blog colors are possibly the worst....your text color is too similar to your background color and hurts my eyes to even see it. i literally have to select all text in order to read your blog. i'm on safari on a mac if that makes a difference....why not go with something simple like black on white? or dark grey on white?

1) I'm very sceptical that a small paramilitary group could take on Argentina's army. And frankly, given the Dirty War, I'm not all that sure that a counterforce to the Army is a bad thing.

But that is just my opinion from several thousand miles away -- and based on Aristotle's political philosophy but with no local knowledge.

2) A far more likely threat than guerrilla warfare, in my opinion, is a coup d'etat. Far more efficient and easier to pull off.
(Which is why our CIA liked them during the Cold War, heh heh ).

3) "Coup d'√Čtat: A Practical Handbook" by Edward Luttwak tells you how coups are executed, in case you want to know what to watch out for.

One big obstacle for the Kirchners , assuming they ever became interested in a coup, is that Buenos Aires' major media is owned by Cristina's bitter enemy, wealthy Ernestina Herrera de Noble


4) If Ernestina has a fatal accident, I would definitely ensure that I had a large supply of food and drinking water. heh heh

5) I only mention this because of the idea that it may be hard for you, Ferfal, living among the trees -- with all the emotion that implies -- to step back and impassively examine the layout of the forest.

On the other hand, I have not lived in Argentina and hence am ignorant of much of what goes on there.

Are the K's prepping for a "lockdown" including maybe a South American Iron Curtain of protectionism and ultra-excessive taxes,... or?

Or are they preparing for invasion?

"Shortly after the war between Britain and Argentina, Cap Weinberger, Reagan’s Defense Secretary, told me — unclassified, at a party — that the United States had actually been ready to go to war with Argentina, if English forces had not prevailed on their own. And they almost didn’t. If those Exocets had gone off and sunk those British ships (here’s why they didn’t), the United States would have been at war with a Latin American country on behalf of a European colonial power."

Or are they preparing for both?

That whole, "may you live in interesting times" bit...

JB said...

In my state a prison term usually follows political careers not the other way around!

#4 is the 1st thing everyone in America needs to do as soon as possible. Stay politically active in the local, state and national level. We can make a difference here before it is too late.

Maldek said...

Sounds bad.

Perhaps after they "nationalized" pension funds last year the socialist K system is running out of money sources now.

Who knows what they will do next...if they are arming the socialist peons perhaps some sort of "financial emergency" is looming ahead, similar situation as you remember from 2001.

Google "Greece + downgrade" -> the world economic crysis is far from over but instead gaining momentum each day. In a few months we know more.

Reminds me of Robert Mugabe and his "veterans." I hope it doesn't come to that. Disturbing news.

szopen said...

Mr FerFal, I have one question. I started to read your blog and I had an impression of slow, continuous collapse. But then I consulted wikipedia and it seems that the collapse was reverted in 2003/4 - Wikipedia says that in 2003 under poverty was more than half of society, while now it's 15%. What's your opinion on that?

brosil said...

Great! Just when you think things can't get any worse, they get worse.

Shambhala said...

As difficult as it may be to say this, the Argentinian army may be all that stands between the Ks and a dictatorship.

Pick your poison. We may be following in Argentina's footsteps sooner rather than later.

Unfortunately in some states in the U.S.A., like California, you have to register your handguns if you don't want to go to jail for unregistered ones. They don't go around (so far) checking your guns at every shooting range but you never know. I guess one option is to buy 2 of the same gun: one registered (for practice) and another (or two) unregistered and hidden gun(s) (for use after the round up).

Rifles and shotguns do not need to be registered so it's possible to buy them out of state (not that I would condone such an action, mind you). But California is known to have sting operations in Nevada (and probably other neighboring states) and catch CA resident as soon as they cross the state line.

Another option is to go with black powder guns which (even in CA) you do not need any background checks for. With revolvers, you can even buy converters to fire regular bullets....

My continued thanks for your postings. I pray for your safety as you speak out, and that of my fellow citizens in the US who refuse to submit to the tyranny of the health-care bill. Our rights are now being violated by funding abortions with our money and civil disobedience is being called for by the remaining resistance within the gov't. God help us all.

Gallo said... "to get a CCW you have to divulge a lot of personal information, including your prints. I suspect, if some confiscation ever happened in the US, CCWer would be first on the target list."

Most people already have our prints in the system either because we were in the military, have security clearances, have been arrested (even if not convicted), have filed for US citizenship, a passport or visa, or worked in a job that required a background check. Believe it or not, even realtor's have to give up fingerprints to get licensed in Florida!

CCW holders will probably be the first on the target list, but as long as we know that and are prepared, having a CCW and being able to legally carry a weapon every day outweighs the risks of not having one.

Just my 2 cents.

russell1200 said...

Just trying to think it through.

I am guessing that they are emulating their friend Chavez. But Chavez has a different background and Argentina is a much different country.

I assume that the thugs will be used to keep people in line politically. But there usefulness against a real military would be very small.

Don said...

Sounds like Argentina (and the US, if I watch the news) is sliding into the world that is written about in "Enemies Foreign and Domestic".

Anonymous said...

ferFAL, in light of this particular posting, have you ever considered emigrating to U.S. or some other more stable (than Argentina)country? Just a thought...

When it comes to guns, it is always wise to have some that just "fell out of my boat on a fishing trip last summer."

Cold guns, as I call them, can be worth their weight in goal if TSHTF politically.

See the movie "Defiance", you'll see what I'm talking about.

I really do feel for you and your country. So much to offer to it's people and the world, and it has been systematically controlled and stolen.

Please watch your back, and be ready to get the heck out. I'm pretty sure your not on the bottom of any "list" that may or may not be out there.

Do you have any links to these "K" groups, etc? It will just be a matter of time before they show up in other places.

Thank you for sharing difficult issues with us. I know it can not be easy.
