III has hit the Big Time



A group of like-minded patriots, bound together by pride in American exceptionalism, plan on building an armed community to protect their liberty.
The group, named Citadel, intends to purchase 2,000 to 3,000 acres for the project in western Idaho.  The community will comprise of 3,500 to 7,000 families of patriotic Americans who "voluntarily choose to live together in accordance with Thomas Jefferson's ideal of Rightful Liberty."
According to the Citadel website, Rightful Liberty means that "neighbors keep their noses out of other neighbors' business, that neighbors live and let live."
Citadel explains that residents in the community will be bound by the following:
  • Patriotism
  • Pride in American Exceptionalism
  • Our proud history of Liberty as defined by our Founding Fathers, and
  • Physical preparedness to survive and prevail in the face of natural catastrophes --such as Hurricanes Sandy or Katrina -- or man-made catastrophes such as a power grid failure or economic collapse.
Residents should also agree that being "prepared for the emergencies of life and being proficient with the American icon of Liberty -- the Rifle -- are prudent measures.

PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE YOU COMMENT WITH QUESTIONS ABOUT THE CITADEL

I do not have anything to do with The Citadel. I'm not involved with it in any way, shape or form although I do support the project 100%. The reasons I am not involved are personal and not really any of your business, but they do not have anything to do with the concept, project or founders. Again, they have my full support. I wish them nothing but success, happiness and good fortune.
But because I am not involved, I cannot and will not answer any questions about it. I don't want to inadvertently give out the wrong information so instead I will direct you to where you can find the answers. Please follow the links below:

Good grief they are going to put 3500-7000 FAMILIES on 2000-3000 acres? Must be planning to stack and pack ‘um. Sounds more like agenda 21 to me.

This is the next Waco. The FedGov will not tolerate folks who are openly independent and who show others the way to get off the federal teat.

With that much weaponry and the mindset of the folks that will live there, I'm pretty sure that Waco would be considered a pushover in the eyes of the feds.

Guerilla warfare is the only way to take on the US government. Taking a stand agains the US military is suicide.

Even the UN TROOPS that would likely be sent in to take on the resistance would have superior firepower.

I love that they are taking the stand, but it would be better to do non stop 'hit and run; tactics to sting the government to death.

Why in hell would they announce their intent to the world? If you want to be left alone don't prod the bear.

wirecutter said...

They're not looking for warfare, they just want a place to live without anybody from the gov't fucking with them.

wirecutter said...

They didn't announce anything, Jim. It was an idea that was floated, it gathered momentum, investors, tradesmen and businesses were needed and it went from there.
It was bound to get picked up on by somebody eventually - this thing's been in the works for quite a while now.

I agree with the 1st Anonymous post whereby the Feds see this type of action as insurrection and they seem to love these "challenges" to try out their latest government toys and pump up their egos.Ruby Ridge, Waco, and other not so publicized Federal interventions prove this point.
As great as this concept is, the feds will screw with them via the EPA and other state and local agencies to try and break them financially first. Going Gault will take a lot of cha-ching.
My 2 cents

Are they not planning on being self-sufficient (or at least partially self-sufficient) for when the shtf? Less than an acre a family is not enough land to raise crops and animals or even hunt...

I the woman just below the Persident's picture on the right, suggesting that he's only about 3.5 inches?

The one acre limit is just for inside the walled area. A larger area of farms and ranches surrounding a core protected area of residential, industrial and commercial activity has been the pattern for this type of idea for centuries.

And no, it isn't meant to stop a .gov or .mil attack. We believe a general social/political/economic collapse is the more likely scenario. In that case, the wall becomes much more likely to be beneficial.

OTOH, castles and castle walls are just plain cool. I'd build it just because I could even if there wasn't the slightest practical reason. Why build a boring little town that looks like every other boring little town in the country when you could build something unique?

The sneers and jeers from small minded folks who have had their imagination and creativity crushed into paste by the lame stream media and political correctness are a sad commentary on what America has become. Dreaming big used to be the very essence of who we were. That so many have lost that ability is tragic.

It's an ambitious project. We may fail, but at least we had the guts to try.
