    Hello,

    Saw your name on Gerald Celente’s article and have been watching things for a longtime. Not sure what to do but I think its time to be with like minded people. I will defend the constitution with my life. If thats enough please let me know what I can do to help our country survive along with our constitution.

    Thank you

    Oath of Enlistment

    The oath below is one that I took when entering the Marine Corps and one that I will honor with one exception; the part that says obey the Orders of The President of the USA. We do NOT have a President, we have a king. This treasonous jackass in our White House should be tried and hung for what he has done to this country. Upon entering the Marine Corps – I took this oath; – …… I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

      Hey Rage!
      Interesting coincidence, as i’ve grown in this whole movement (maybe just call it the Liberty Movement/Constitutionalist/Individualism movement), i’m now actively seeking out CPTs and to join oathkeepers, and i live in streamwood. I have not military experience, but i’m a leader, martial arts instructor, frequent ZH and alt-market commenter and would like to get this going in streamwood/schaumburg/bartlett et al. Reply if you have any updates or news.
      Thanks!

        Hello Skillyhog,
        I am in Chicago and am interested in all of the things you posted – trying right now to master the AR-15, get all my survivalism skills down pat, develop energy alternatives to what the Establishment controls, get skills and certs for field medicine, improve in Jiu Jitsu and combatives, and continue in innumerable interventions for the purpose of contributing to stopping the implosion of the Republic that is coming and killing the NWO.

          Hey guys served 4 years in usmc. Got out in 95.’
          Reside in Chicago and I belong to a jiu jitsu school. Looking to improve survival skills and learn more about owning a weapon. I have a FOID card but do not own a weapon yet. Got a 12 year old in the house and that makes me nervous having a weapon where kids can get at.
          Also, looking to learn more about the movement.

            Chuck, Teach your 12 year old about guns, take him/her out shooting with you so they know it’s not a toy. I grew up with loaded guns all over the house. We were taught gun safety and started shooting a gun (22) at 5 years old.

          • RJM 19 August, 2015, 02:59

            Hello Chuck,
            Where do you live in Chicago? I am presently in the NW corner writing this email. There are a number of projects in which i am involved in re which you might consider participating. I will send references if i get an email address from you, so that you can be certain that I am not any type of govt plant, nutcase, hothead, chemically dependent bad risk, etc. Helping stop the takeover in progress w/o tripping any trip wires in this police state is no easy task to understate the case. I am doing more legal research as i write this email. The enemy must be force to take us all out in masse on the capital steps in the noon day sun. If you have not seen Pedro Sauer’s defeat of Lance Bachelor, I would highly recommend viewing it as that fight demonstrates what I understand we must do – prevent the Beast from ever getting adequately positioned to destroy us. Pedro won and so can we if we are highly enough committed – RJM

Oh a bit about myself Im a former Marine Infantry Machine Gunner and as a secondary MOS i was a MTT member ( military transition team) our mission statement was to “Train an advise the Iraqi Army” and not to toot my own horn i was good at what i dd.

    New member I live about a half hour south of Chicago. I’ve been asking myself for years. I took a sworn oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic so help me God back in 1984. What are we suppose to do when our own government becomes a domestic enemy of the Constitution? I believe this group is answering that question. I’m an Army veteran of 8 years 11B Infantry. I was a sniper team leader during Dessert Shield/Storm. I decided a couple years ago that if I don’t start taking better care of myself I won’t be much good to anyone if there is an emergency so I started working out and haven’t stopped. The reality is that I can’t do it by myself we have to stand together. United we stand, divided we fall. I don’t see any chapters in IL listed yet. Hope somebody gets something going in the Chicago Area soon.

    Perhaps it would be a good idea if the chapters within the state would give the particulars as to exactly where they are located. IE, city, crossroads. Perhaps include an E-Mail address for contact info.
    Start a listing for each state.

    The phone number listed for the Illinois Point of Contact is a non-working number. How are we supposed to get in touch with a chapter in our area?
