In the tradition of classical podcasting, "Behind Enemy Lines" is a series brought to you from the Team of Outpost of Freedom Radio. Beginning with a question on a relevant subject between two patriots, the conversation becomes serendipitous, as the discussion continues in an informal conversational style. Behind Enemy Lines is a more naturally flowing discussion regarding topics of interest to the Patriot Community.


United States Constitution: The Great Experiment, 4 of 4   (2:07:43) - September 14, 2015

After learning about the various clauses within the 1787 federal Constitution, many people have come to the conclusion that perhaps this Constitution has nothing at all whatsoever to do with human liberty. Over two centuries has passed since its ratification, so a reevaluation into the efficacy of the Constitution for the purpose of securing liberty must be broached. Has "the Great Experiment" increased freedom in any practical way, or is it now time to explore other avenues that do not rely on the use of this paper cage?

United States Constitution: Bill of Rights, 3 of 4   (2:22:34) - September 11, 2015

During the ratification period of the 1780s, the Framers of the United States Constitution sought to remedy the defects inherent within the Articles of Confederation that had already provided a republican form of limited government. Those opponents of ratification demanded that a bill of rights be included as a reasonable compromise to act as a counterweight to the noticeably increased powers of government as enumerated in the Constitution, which were missing from the Articles. Over two centuries have passed since then, and therefore the time has come to examine the Bill of Rights line by line in order to judge whether or not the federal government has respected individual liberty.

United States Constitution: Delegated Powers, 2 of 4   (2:42:38) – February 5, 2015

Many patriots have claimed over the years that they are willing to fight and die for the Constitution, but what exactly are they willing to fight and die for? By examining the Preamble and Articles I - VII, we discover what the Constitution actually says, and what enumerated powers were delegated to the federal government. Are the first seven articles of the Constitution a "bill of rights" unto itself, as Alexander Hamilton claimed in Federalist Paper #84, or are they something wholly different?

United States Constitution: Drafting & Ratification, 1 of 4   (39:24) – February 5, 2015

British domination, much like the absolute despotism of the current American government, oppressed the colonists severely enough to warrant a genuine restoration of their common rights as Englishmen. As the hubris of the Parliament increased, the colonists realized that in order for their liberties to be secured again, they would have to secede from the Crown. Once they had defeated what was then the most awesome empire on the battlefield, with little more than a sparsely equipped continental army and disparate militia units, the more important struggle to follow was to decide the question of, “How should we then live?”

Patriot Mythology: Conclusion & Summary   (1:59:29) - January 31, 2015

After covering a swath of myths permeating the alternative media, it becomes pivotal to understand the popularity of these rumour mills, and who benefits from spreading such misinformation. The magnitude of the time wasted and effort spent debating on such topics is time and effort not spent on more productive tasks. Lack of rationality, coupled with ulterior motives, gives rise to a society of the spectacle where reality matters not, as well as the proliferation of confidence scams.

Patriot Mythology: America is Still a British Colony?   (1:26:18) - January 26, 2015

A common assertion made over the years have included the notion that the victory of liberty won by the American War for Independence was a fraud, and that England still owns the colonies. Similar to this is the related set of claims which say that Britain, in turn, is owned and controlled by the Vatican. Despite the numerous sources allegedly proving these claims, the truth appears to be not only be much simpler, but also quite shocking.

Internet Friends, Rumor Mills, and Roleplaying   (01:20:39) - January 23, 2015

In recent years, it would appear as if many patriots have become engrossed in what some would term, “Internet culture.” Facets of this phenomenon entail not only a false sense of security, but also the encouragement to gossip. Suggestions are given as to how best counter act these detrimental behaviors.

Patriot Mythology - Philadelphia Conspiracy   (01:18:12) - November 16, 2014

A recurring accusation over time has been that the United States Constitution was conspiratorially debated behind closed doors and then foisted on the People. Examining the ratification period of the late 1780s tells quite a different story, one that reveals how the early American republic was formally established.

Patriot Mythology - Corporate United States Myth   (00:55:06) - October 26, 2014

Some patriots like to repeat the claim that the national government is a shadowy mega-corporation. They usually combine this with other assertions that their legal name, when all the letters are capitalized, is evidence of being treated as chattel property, or that the fringes on the U.S. flag is proof that we have been conquered by foreign merchants. Seldom do they provide actual evidence for these claims, not to mention the proof that directly contradicts their claims.

Patriot Mythology - Introduction   (00:46:06) - October 24,2014

Patriot mythology, simply defined, is the collection of unprovable or debunked assertions concerning the nature of our political relationship with the governments. Although a few of them originally began as simple misunderstandings that were eventually corrected, the majority of this stories appeal to the sensationalistic appetites of those who would prefer to financially profit from spreading such folklore rather than restoring constitutional government, or simply perpetuate the error, through lack of understanding. These will be addressed in this series of podcasts.

Taking the Initiative to Restore Our Government   (02:08:09) - October 16, 2014

There is little doubt, in the minds of all true patriots, that we are on a downhill slide that could eventually result in the demise of the United States, at least as we know and love it. "Taking the Initiative to Restore Our Government" discusses what can be done, now, to begin the process of retaining and restoring that government given to their posterity, us, by those who envisioned a country of liberty and freedom. This episode will discuss, from justification to action, the necessary beginnings of that process. Referenced literature includes:

State Citizenship, Part 1 of 2: "Benefits" of the Fourteenth Amendment   (1:43:34) - February 26, 2014

Many constitutionalists do not know that there are two classes of American citizenship, namely, federal and state, that has been recognized by the common law. Oddly enough, the federal government admitted in 1936 that the United States Supreme Court will stubbornly avoid ruling on the constitutionality of any matter brought before them if they can find any way whatsoever to do so; and, in 1946, the United States Congress unconstitutionally created a FOURTH branch of government, that is, the administrative branch. Unfortunately, the legal status of United States federal citizenship has been used as a key tool of oppression, by the Congress and their Administrative Agencies, to incrementally subvert your liberty and replace it with a dictatorial empire, which seeks to coercively impose a new dark age upon all of mankind.

State Citizenship, Part 2 of 2: Escaping the Administrative Agency Trap   (1:19:33) - February 26, 2014

After comprehending the nature of the American Leviathan, it becomes pertinent for us to develop whatever tactics and strategies we can muster to confront and defeat it as peacefully as is humanly possible. Claiming our inalienable rights by filing legal documents or litigating our own cases in court are two ways that can be used to increase our personal liberty, but perhaps the most important idea to realize is that state citizenship, more so than its utilitarian applications, lies in its value of moving patriots along the other (not so) thin line towards a state of nature. Some topics mentioned are the freedoms to travel and contract, the evils of licensure, the American Bar Association's monopoly on the practice of law, and how to formally declare your recognition of state citizenship. Referenced literature includes:

A Primer on Habeas Corpus (3:15:15) - February 4th, 2014

Despotic governments imprison their own people without just cause. Historically, the English common law sought to remedy that by providing a way for the citizenry to challenge the lawfulness of the detention itself. Unfortunately, trying to do so nowadays is causing many of us to reevaluate the lawfulness of the United States government itself. Some topics mentioned were Larry Myers, the 14th Amendment, the Ashwander Doctrine, state citizenship, and the nature of the Administrative Agencies. Referenced literature include:

False Hopes – Oathkeepers, Constitutional Sheriffs, and Filming Cops (2:27:04) - October 26, 2013

A popular trend amongst dissidents is to record police encounters with a video camera and then upload it to the Internet for everyone to watch. The same as been done with politicians, with the ostensible goal being that it will provide transparency and accountability in government. Simultaneously, some of these government agents claim they uphold the constitutional limits upon government, yet a conceptual analysis puts this assertion into serious question. Might it be the case that reformists are grasping at straws so they can persuade others to “work within the system,” or would it be more accurate to say that some political activists refuse to take individual responsibility for their own actions by preferring one type of government agent to protect them against another type of government agent?

Some topics mentioned are copblocking, the technique of "confronting" politicians, dissident consumerism, John Bad Elk, civil asset forfeiture, Waco, state nullification, the Texas Constitution, disobeying unlawful orders, and security teams.

Privacy, Part 2 of 2: Fighting Back Against Big Brother (1:47:59) - March 28, 2013

Understanding the multifaceted nature of the surveillance grid does beg the question of how anyone can begin to deal with it. Mitigating its effects upon your life, while an essential starting point, is not going to take Big Brother down. Ironically enough, what it is going to require is you that you cede some of your privacy in order to organize and associate with like-minded individuals for mutual defense and protection.

Some topics mentioned were face-to-face meetings, selective disinformation, cryptography, disguise, and keeping your own counsel.

Privacy, Part 1 of 2: The Orwellian Problem (1:51:24) - March 27, 2013

As the cancer of Big Government grows, so does the tumor of Big Business. Both are emblematic of corporatism, which seeks to profit at the expense of both your liberty and your property. A key control mechanism to make this happen is the surveillance police state apparatus that is used to keep the citizenry as predictable as possible, for those who are reliably predictable are also easily controllable.

Some topics mentioned were the 4th Amendment, urbanization, Anonymous, invasive government and corporate databases, legal identity, and conflict with the freedom of the press.

Trial by Press (1:16:14) - February 22, 2013

Within the alternative media, there seems to be a tendency to draw premature conclusions. Unfortunately, most of the Patriot Community has succumbed to what has amounted to little other than popularity contests, where they assume that anybody who rejects the false dichotomy of "you're either with us, or with the enemy rebel government" (especially with regards to differing explanations of suspiciously violent events), allegedly "must be a government agent," or otherwise undesirable individuals. The remedy to this problem is also discussed.

Topics covered include infighting, Waco, the Carnival of Distractions, skepticism, Vortex, the Murrah bombing, Conspiratainment (Conspiracy Entertainment), and false flag operations.

Property Rights (1:36:06) - February 14, 2013

There are a lot of misunderstandings when it comes to property rights. Where does one man's freedom of movement impose upon another man's castle? Exploring this critical topic is essential for determining how exactly we should all treat each other for the purpose of respecting property itself, which is simply a consequence of having the liberty and life to justly acquire, maintain, and improve those portions of the natural world all around us.

Some topics broached are the foreigners scampering across the southern border, the right to travel, trespass, land surveying, the homesteading principle, and the tragedy of the commons.

Conditioning (54:32) - February 7, 2013

Conditioning is a process of using real life activity to socially engineer society about how they should act when the same thing they just witnessed occurs again. By contrast, predictive programming uses fictional hypothetical role-playing scenarios in order to shape the audience about how they should act if they were in a given situation.

Topics mentioned are COPS TV show, Disney films, Waco, officer safety, crazy gunmen, the Hegelian Dialectic, and Sandy Hook. False flag events are also discussed.

Line in the Sand (2:12:41) - January 20, 2013

What was the significance of Colonel Travis drawing a line in the sand at the Alamo with his saber? Is it possible to know ahead of time what abuses of government you will and will not tolerate? Are public pronouncements only an expression of bravado and is it quite possible that the line in the sand concept is just a fabrication?

Some topics that were broached, during this very diverse conversation, were the viability of street protests, sensationalistic civil disobedience, people who have taken an oath and claim they will keep it, militia mutual defense pacts, the 2012 presidential campaign, Sandy Hook, and the Free State Project.
