Seriously folks?

You don’t understand why The Ticker has faded to black?


Let me start with this: Why do drug dealers shoot each other on street corners?

Answer: Joe the drug dealer cannot call the cops and tell them that Jack the drug dealer ripped him off and sold him a bag of oregano instead of weed.  Joe also can’t sue Jack.  Thus, when the threshold of his tolerance is crossed Joe has only the use of direct force available to him because he has no recourse to the law to settle his dispute with Jack.

The FIRST foundation of civil society is The Rule of Law.  Without it there is literally nothing other than the Law of the Jungle, commonly known as “he who has the biggest teeth (or the most guns) and is willing to use them first wins.”

Let me remind you that Han Solo, who is widely regarded through the Star Wars series as a hero, shot first at Mos Eisley.  George Lucas edited that in the second release of the film (and later had to put it back after fan outrage) but it is a fact that Han shot first in the original theatrical release. Why did Han shoot first and kill Greedo?  Because he knew there was no Rule of Law and he had no recourse to the law, which incidentally was later proved to be an exactly correct expectation when he was made an ornament in Jabba’s castle.

Now I want you to stop reading, go get an adult beverage or a cup of coffee, and think long and hard before you continue reading about the above.



It is for this reason that I have decided that for the present I am going to go enjoy whatever time is left in a reasonably-peaceful society here in America instead of writing for your consumption, for I neither believe that this relatively-peaceful state of affairs will persist for long nor do I believe any material number of people will lift a single finger to do anything about it.

I suppose I knew this day would come. None of us wanted to face the world we thought was coming in the future. And now that future is here. I agree that there is no Rule of Law in this once great country. People will not accept the simple fact that there is no Republic without the Rule of Law. I encourage everyone to read the entire article above and then decide how you will prepare to face the consequences of our apathy regarding the value of freedom.

I will let NCRenegade up for other people to post articles. I appreciate the support that you have given this site and now ask two favors:

  1. RESIST.
  2. Do not send emails concerning my decision to stop writing.

I will continue the Appalachian Messenger since this is an effective and essential tool for communications. Good luck and stay safe.

Rani…the fade is just dew on the grass that the Son will renew into Living Water…greater is He who lives in you/me/His believers than he who lives in the world.

Thanks you David. When I shut down Liberty and Lead I knew that everything I knew to say had been said. It is up to each man now to act according to his convictions. God Speed Brother. -55six

There is only one Almighty Elohim (God), our Heavenly Father (Gen.
17:1-2; Ex. 6:2-3; Jer. 10:10; Jn. 3:31-33, 5:43-44, 17:3; Rom.
16:25-27; 1 Thes. 1:9-10; 1 Jn. 5:20; Ju. 24-25; Rev. 4:8, 21:22)

He is the Elohim of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Ex. 3:6; 2 Chr. 30:6)
Although He is called by many titles our Heavenly Father has given
us his one proper name, יהוה (commonly pronounced “Yehovah”,
or “Yehowah”), and He desires that we call him by His name (Ex. 3:15,
6:3, 15:3; 1 Chr. 16:8; Ps. 9:10, 68:4; Am. 5:8)

יהוה our Elohim is one (Deut. 6:4; Mk. 12:29-33; Rom. 3:29-30; 1
Cor. 8:4-6; Gal. 3:19-20; Eph. 4:4-6; 1 Tim. 2:5-6; Jam. 2:19)

יהוה our Elohim is Spirit, and is not a man, or a son of man (Num.
23:19; 1 Chr. 29:1; Job 32:13; 33:12; Hos. 11:9; Jn. 4:24; 1 Tim. 2:5)

We are commanded to observe the fourth commandment, the seventh-day Sabbath,
not because it brings salvation by its observance, but because it
pleases our Heavenly Father and is a fruit of our salvation; He set
apart that day for himself and for us to have union -- Friday at sunset to Saturday at sunset -- and made it a holy day; it is strictly for our benefit (Ex. 20:8-11; Deut. 5:12-15; Isa. 56:1-7;
Heb. 4:1-11)
We are to follow the perfect example of Yeshua by obeying His fathers Law, the
(Torah) as written in the Five Books of Moses and confirmed by the
prophets (Isa. 8:20; Mat. 10:24-25; Jn. 8:12; Heb. 12:1-2; 1 Pet.
2:21-22; Rev. 14:4)
The Torah is perfect; it is the law of liberty; it makes us wise,
and it is truth (Ps. 19:7, 119:44-45, 98-100, 142, 151, 160; Pro. 28:7;
Rom. 2:20; Jam. 2:10-12)
None of the commandments, statutes, and/or judgments in the Torah
have been abolished or done away with! They were observed and practiced by Yeshua!
; and they are still fully operative today (Ps. 119:160; Mat. 5:17-19, 23:23;Lk. 10:25-28, 16:16-17; Act.21:24; Rom. 2:12-13, 3:31; Jam. 1:25, 2:8-12)
Certain commandments, statutes, and judgments, although still fully
operative, have been fulfilled in Messiah Yeshua, such as animal
sacrifices for sin (Eph. 5:2; Heb. 7:27, 9:22-28, 10:12)
The Torah tells us what sin is and to break the Torah is sin and
lawlessness (Pro. 28:9; Rom. 4:15, 7:8; Jam. 2:9-10; 1 Jn. 3:4)
There are many blessings and rewards for obeying the Torah and there
are many penalties for not (Deut. 28:1-68; Ps. 119:1; Pro. 28:19; Mat.
Although there are many instructions and commands contained within
the Torah, we find the following especially important: The “Ten
Commandments” including the Sabbath, The Clean and Unclean food laws,
and the annual Holy Days and Festivals (Ex. 20:8-11, 31:12-17; Lev. 11, 23)
Obedience to the Torah by itself does not bring salvation, but
rather it shows our love for יהוה by obeying His commands and following
in the footsteps of Yeshua (Dt. 6:4-6; 1 Jn. 2:3-4, 3:24, 5:2-3; Rev.
12:17, 14:12)

Shalom David. Blessings to you and yours.

Hey David, all you can do is lock and load and stay faithful to the Lord and his word, and let no man deceive you by any means. the establishment has become the beast system spoken of in Revelation and Daniel and the anti christs are the fools who follow after the establishment and are whores for them, the majority of people have the mark on them already but don’t even know it. the false prophet are the churches who have whored themselves after the beast and have become pseudo partners with it. as for me David I will stay and continue to fight the good fight with words at this moment, but when the time comes it burst forth into civil war i will be there to fight for what is right. God Bless and may he keep you safe.

May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May the Lord make his face to shine upon you,
and be gracious to you.
May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
and give you peace.

I have been late to NC Renegade…but have reveled in the discourse and the insights from you and the majority of those contributing.

As a Born Again Christian, as an American Constitutional Patriot, as a man who is daily preparing for the coming tribulation.

I will continue to cling to my Bible and my guns and my determination to live and if necessary die a free man.

God bless -- If you start back up please include me -- best site on the internet!

Time is short, and we have much preparation still to do. This is what consumes nearly all of my “free time” these days. And so it is with everyone I know, who takes what is coming seriously. Many patriot blogs are already experiencing ‘troubles’ with links being denied, or with folks reporting that a pretty consistent percentage of the time they cannot reach certain blogs or news outlets (like Drudge). Just like with everything else, the screws are being tightened.

Better have your alternate means in place. Alternate means of communications, of powering your home, of providing your family with food, of protecting your home and community, &etc.
Because that which government and/or big business provide, they control -- and they can restrict or eliminate whatever they wish…partially or entirely.
