A quick post to draw your attention:
Probably due to being linked on SurvivalBlog.com today, my critique of the Discovery Channel show covering ‘The Watchman of America’ has raised the ire of one “Freebyrd” who appears to be one of them. Go check out the comments, if you want a laugh. HERE.
It looks like I just acquired yet another hater. It seems to come with the territory of speaking the tactical truth.
One day, just one day, one if these guys will get past being a 400lb bucket of butt hurt and actually listen to what is being told to them. And maybe, just maybe, take up an offer of training in order to unfuck themselves.
Because for one thing, I don’t give a fuck about your self delusional excuses. And secondly and more importantly, the bad guys don’t either.
So to Freebyrd and his ilk: STFU. People better qualified are giving you advice. You are fat and tactically incompetent. Either fix it or bad guys will play with your intestines. No one gives a fuck about your excuses, least of all the enemy.
There was even an offer of training there. Get over your unassailable ego.
UPDATE: It’s on!
Freebyrd runs this ridiculous organization. I just got sent in these documents from ‘Redwulf’ who explains:
Here’s a couple attachments providing some insight (or entertainment) into the Watchmen group. I was the Iowa State commander for a few months last year. Freebyrd appointed me as state commander after about a 30 min skype call and an emailed application. (Was not then, nor am I now, qualified for such a position. Currently doing my best at participating in a small and local group) The first attachment is their sop on dealing with disputes, the second one is the skype transcript where I submitted our statement of refusing to pay dues and their subsequent reactions. If nothing else, it’s a somewhat entertaining read that expounds on the character of Freebyrd and his minions.
What a fucking joke these guys are, a total travesty and an embarrassment to the Rightful Liberty movement. No, I will not check fire, not while idiots out there with their unassailable egos are fucking this stuff up. Their mistake – going on TV! Check out Freebyrd and his minions comments on the original post.
This is the WoA dispute resloution policy:
INTERNAL CONFLICT RESOLUTION
As with any growing organization of people, there will be times when
opposition and conflict will occur. The more we grow in numbers, there will be an
increase in different personalities and ideologies. These differences will cause
disruption at times if the situations are not treated with personal respect and honor.
When conflict arises between individuals or groups, we must enforce a policy
of “Respect”. While debate can be a healthy way to resolve certain issues, we cannot
allow ourselves to turn these disagreements into personal and degrading attacks
upon one another. This type of behavior will not be tolerated and can possibly result
in Termination of membership and Dismissal of State Group Command.
In order to address issues that may arise from conflict, we have established
policies and protocols to be followed here in efforts to peacefully resolve the
situations. We certainly realize that not all efforts will be met with compliance and
acceptance, however we feel that these rules must be put in place in order to
appropriately address these issues.
Various Types of Situations may result in a need for Conflict Resolution or Policy
These may include, but not be limited to the following:
> Members who may initiate into a disagreement with other Members,
that results in an escalation to personal attacks and/or degrading
> Members who falsely or inappropriately make accusation against
> Members that openly or covertly propose or incite division within a
group or segment of Members.
> Group Command leaders that may attempt, or successfully subvert their
group, or a portion of their Membership, away from the Watchmen
> Members who divulge sensitive information to other people or groups,
including Watchmen Members, that may otherwise not be entitled to
such information.Recommended Procedures For Resolution:
We strongly urge any and all parties involved in a dispute, to act accordingly,
with Respect and Integrity. Opposing parties should try to work out their differences
between them as much as possible. If the situation cannot be reconciled through
reasonable discussion, then the incident can be escalated to a Request For
The Mediation process will involve a third party negotiator to be employed to
address both parties in an attempt at resolution. Both parties must agree to abide
by the Rules of Conduct during mediation and to accept the Ruling of the Mediator
in resolving the Dispute or Conflict. If one or both parties fail at the Mediation
Hearing Process, then the incident will be Brought before the Watchmen Board and
Submitted for a “Board Review.”
The Board Review will consist of National Board Members and Command
Board Members, and at least one Primary WOA Officer. If any Board Member is
included as a party in the dispute, then they and anyone in their respective Group
are prohibited from participating in the Board Review Panel.
The First step in requesting a Board Review is filing a Resolution Complaint
Form. This can be done by either of the parties involved in the conflict or by the
Mediator from the Previous step. This Resolution Complaint Form can be found on
the Watchmen Of America web site in the Members Area. ( Section _____________)
Resolution Complaints must be submitted with full and proper Evidence of the
infraction being claimed. This can be “Screen Shots”, Official Email Copies, Web
Site Links or Chat Logs, that clearly show any evidence through conversations
that took place. Without proper evidence of the dispute or conflict itself, the
complaint will be denied. No third party testimony will be accepted unless they were
actually present during the incident and are testifying as a direct witness.
Once a Resolution Complaint is accepted and filed, then the Defendant of the
Complaint will be contacted for a Formal Written “Response” to the charges or
allegations. When the Defendants Response is received, the Review Board will
examine the case and all the evidence and make a determination in the matter, at
which time disciplinary action will be rendered against any party that is found guilty
in the incident.
1) Work It Out Respectfully
2) Request Mediation
3) Request Board Review
4) Board Summary Judgment and Discipline
Group Commanders shall be responsible for their Group Members to adhere
to our Conflict Resolution Policies and Watchmen National will enforce the Policy
with Individual Members.
This is what actually happened to Redwulf. He’s a good guy, he has trained at MVT:
[10/17/13 1:55:54 PM] RedWulf Iowa CO: To the National Staff of the Watchmen of
Serving as Command for Iowa in the Watchmen of America has given us knowledge of
its inner workings. Quite frankly, we are left disappointed. The WoA has truly drifted far
from its original purpose.
What should have become a network of helping States with their training, prepping and
equipment has instead turned into a group of keyboard commando elitists that desire to
dictate over state groups. An example of this is the national director lamenting over
being tasked by the state groups autonomy. Another is the Iowa group receiving a
warning for not socialising enough or performing errands for national. Our responsibility
first and foremost is to the state group and its members. We will not pay dues to a social
club for the fringe benefit of networking.
We admonish all State Commanders to request a financial statement of all monies
taken in and where it goes. To date, Iowa has only received a pittance of help in the
form of self serving recruitment materials by the WoA. Any creation of training materials
has been relegated to the state directors, then expected to be shared while WoA takes
credit. Why is the money from dues not returning to state groups as training or gear?
This organization cares more about needless internet programs and its own public
image than truly helping state groups or individuals. The lack of professionalism by
choosing favorites during internal disputes and failing to follow protocol while
demanding states to do so is unacceptable. With the continuous turnover of state
groups, it is time to stop blaming everyone else and start taking a hard look into the
It is our sincerest hope that the WoA can right their course and return to the path as
stated in the Watchmen mission statement. The command staff for the Watchmen of
Iowa shall no longer participate or pay dues to an organization that has lost its way.

[10/17/13 2:07:34 PM] RedWulf Iowa CO: My point proven considering we’re the 2nd
longest standing group here.
[10/17/13 2:08:21 PM] MFreebyrd: Its klind of HARD to suppor ta Group whose OWN
COMMANDER hasn’t paid his dues since August and refuses to return Email
[10/17/13 2:08:56 PM] patriotangel2011: They have failed in their duty to do anything
but sit and argue with Other IA groups. on FB posts…so it seems to be the keyboard
commando comment is what they are as well

due, on what? maybe $60 total of dues , yet you expect all this financial suppor tform

[10/17/13 2:11:50 PM] MFreebyrd: well dude you were told the rules up front, and
personally I dont think asking ANY group to participate in Command room topics,
discussions, checkins, etc is too much to ask…….Personally I HAVE NEVER seen not
one fo you even attempt to reach out to your fellow watchmen other than to state here
that you now would ask them to AUDIT Watchmen of America……….YOU SIR ARE A
JOKE AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED
[10/17/13 2:12:16 PM] MFreebyrd: You can resign all six of you and go start a bowling
[10/17/13 2:12:38 PM] RedWulf Iowa CO: What does the Watchmen mission statement
say? That you created this organization to help support groups and individuals in the
efforts of training and prepping.
[10/17/13 2:12:54 PM] MFreebyrd: this is utterly ridiculous for you to come here with this
attitude and attempt to Subvert this organization
[10/17/13 2:13:57 PM] MFreebyrd: after all this time and I have not ever received NOT
ONE request from you for any type of support other than that which Seth has
communicated to me directly and most of that was for his S/C needs
[10/17/13 2:15:30 PM] MFreebyrd: exactly what amount of money do you think we are
suppose to spend on a group of 6 people tops that has not bothered to recruit or grow
their group and who have totally no concept of cooperative support or you all wouldn’t
have joined at $5.00 pe month?
[10/17/13 2:15:37 PM] patriotangel2011: Angel out of this conversation I apologize to all
others but people like this who are obviously very misinformed and apparently expect
the WOA to be like the OBama admistration and give free hand outs off of $5
memberships that dont even get paid..is absurd….you gentlemen and I use the term very lightly here should be ahamed of yourselves…you have done NOTHING…I repeat
NOTHING..but put on camo and taken pics…GET OVER YOURSELVES…and GOOD
LUCK..Obama’s giving out all kinds of FREE STUFF>>GO HIT HIM UP
