Matt Bracken on Alex Jones today

Quick heads up,  Matt Bracken will be on the Alex Jones show today. It will be very interesting to hear his perspective after the election. I know Alex probably has a spotted reputation with some people because he does seem a little far out once in awhile but one of the best parts about his shows are the guests. I’ve followed his show off and on since the Sandy Hook shooting, which was when I really started to pay attention to the events in this country. And while I’ve never been a 100% devotee of his, over the last 4 years he has earned some credibility with me. Matt Bracken is a writer and Navy SEAL who has  written a number of very good essays and fiction books, that while still fiction,  do base themselves in fact and serve to tie together a lot of the information that people like Alex present. Check it out if you want to learn something.

The latest Badland’s Dispatch

While I haven’t had much time to work on blogging or the dispatch lately, with work, training and family obligations needing to be tended to, I thought this year’s election was worth taking the time to produce and distribute a dispatch. I’m sure most of you have probably already read the article’s I chose to put into it, but feel free to print some off and distribute yourselves. Let me know what you think of the 11×17 format as well. I think it makes for a nice flyer, and really sticks out from the other papers usually posted on bulletin boards. If I need to, I could also make an 8 1/2 x 11 version for easier printing. bd-3-10

My thoughts on…. “Unconventional Warfare Psychological Operations: An ODA’s Experience at JRTC | Small Wars Journal”

I came across this article over at WRSA, and I finally had time to read it. It is an interesting read, (and there’s some good discussion in the comments) especially since I’ve been publishing my own anonymous news letters and leaflets with the idea of distributing it as covertly as possible. I’ve been trying to operate it as if I were doing it while in a non-permissive environment. 

I’ll be completely honest, psyops wasn’t my department back in the day, so the learning curve is pretty steep, similar to the guys in the AAR. I would be interested in learning how they distributed their messages, and what kind of techniques worked best for them. 

I think skills like these are vastly over looked in the patriot movement. Everyone gets so focused on trigger pulling and patrolling (although I’ve been known to enjoy the smell of burnt CLP in the morning as much as the next guy), but completely miss the whole point of why they are patrolling in the first place. This is going to be especially true if their area of operations includes any populations. 

The most helpful section in their article I feel is the section on “integrating messaging into planning”. This is something that would be easy to integrate into a “five paragraph order” or whatever planning format you plan to use for your operations. Kind of a “narrative contingency plan” to make sure your side gets their story out first,  whether the mission succeeds or not.
