Well, that didn't take long.

Meet the Men Who Want to Build an Armed Castle Commune for ‘Patriots’
James L. Miller is many things, a motorcycle enthusiast, accused online scammer, doomsday prepper, gunmaker and cat lover. Christian Kerodin also wears a number of hats; he is an air conditioning repairman, blogger, author, self-styled security consultant and convicted extortionist. Both men also seem to be the masterminds behind a plan to build a massive, armed survivalist compound in Idaho that has been making national headlines.
They seem to ignore the origin of the Three Percent movement, so I guess Kerodin has been at least mildly successful in his original purpose of hijacking and besmirching the Three Percent ideal. Of course he had help from a number of useful idiots who accused me, at a minimum, of a personal vendetta. Vultures coming home to roost.

good article in the local newspaper today where they want to build "puff the magic dragon land" I know where this 20 acres is. What a worthless piece of ground. You cant fucking get there. It only has a logging road. There is no way to get there now except snow machine. And "where going to build condos, homes, arms plant" I surely cant be the only one who thinks this is 100% bullshit?

Ya know....It's a noble idea, this whole citadel thing....but it seems like this guy doesn't understand the realities of 4th generation warfare. All Dear Leader has to do is send out a few of his drones armed to the teeth and that's that. Just sayin'.

I'm sure some of K's people will read this article and my comment is directed to them. We really don't care if you're involved with III Arms or the Citadel project. You're free men, do as you please. We happen to think, however, there are plenty of reasons for concern surrounding K and we would not be doing fellow patriots any good by refusing to remain silent. The victims of Bernie Madoff certainly would have appreciated a heads up by fellow concerned citizens, but no one spoke up. They were incredibly successful people, but even they could be separated from their money. They made a poor decision and had to learn their lesson the hard way. For many of them, they will never recover a lifetime of savings because they made a poor decision to trust one man. If the highly educated and successful can be victims then how much more so average American patriots?

Ask anyone who has been victimized by a smooth talker and they will tell you he sounded so knowledgeable and sincere. A good con knows how to manipulate others with smooth words to get what he wants. Here's an example of someone who regretted being taken in by K: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/osint/message/36461

You've had warning, but continue on if you wish.

Personally, I don't think the Citadel makes for good OPSEC and, given the people involved, there is too much of a chance the government will one day target it for a raid. History can be consulted for many examples of what happens to a group of people who find themselves trapped in an isolated location: Waco, Masada, Starved Rock (IL), various European castle sieges, etc. Again, it's your money and life, do as you wish; but don't hate us for opposing the idea based on what we know about the people involved and the lessons of history. We simply don't want to see fellow patriots be victimized because, in the end, that hurts the entire resistance cause.

What does irk most of us is the fact K couldn't position himself as a leader here so he snatched the III concept when he left and promoted it as his own. Like it or not, there is a direct connection between Mike and K through the use of the III concept.

All things said and done, when you fail it will look badly upon the entire III ideal, including us. Based on recent news articles, that is already happening. We cannot support your III ideals which are very different from the ORIGINAL III concept so we MUST make it very clear every step of the way we are not a part of your efforts. Hate us for doing that if you like, but blame K for putting us in this position. Meanwhile, we'll continue to despise the fact the III image is being tarnished as this particular article seems to do quite well. With much sarcasm I say, "Thanks for that!"

Observing the new surge of publicity for this "Citadel" thing, I've been wondering what to make of it. No, I mean beyond the whole pyramid-scheme profiteering angle.

And then, sometime yesterday, it struck me.

Think about the attempt to hijack the very concept of the threeper, which is fundamentally rooted in the idea of decentralized power, fully and discreetly distributed throughout the populace (despite some stereotypes), and replace it with something much more "state-like", with a centralized hierarchy, oaths of fidelity and even a centralized location.

Replace "We are everywhere" with "Citadel", which is on that plot of land right there in Idaho?

Maybe the consequence is intended or maybe it's unintended, but if that's not flypaper, I don't know what is.

Even though I realize that you are too much of a coward to publish this comment, I would just like to say that I think you are just a petty, jealous little man who can't stand the fact that Kerodin and company are doing great things. Things that you can only dream of after so many years chasing the "Gunwalker" sparklie. Did you HONESTLY think you were going to take down Eric Holder and company? I don't believe you are that naive. But your failure in that department just makes your attacks on Kerodin and company ring that much more hollow.

For all you Keroden worshipers , You do know this Rat turd will; Rob you , Rat all of you he can out to the feds. Abbandon you your wife and kids in the middle of nowhere Idaho. Change his name for like the 30th time and flee to the next scam. But for all of you Realy Smart Marks out there; Enjoy your stay with the moonies.(for y'all on the left coast "the rajnishies") sounds like a fun cult. OH! and "Kerodin"(NOT HIS REAL NAME) has a Police jacket about 1 1/2 inches thick.Federal Prison WAS NOT his first rodio.

Probably best to just ignore the whole thing. It will go away of its own accord.

Mike, I regret to report that Pete at WRSA is excoriating you once again for taking on Kerodin and exposing him for what he is.

I can't understand how anyone can continue to defend this poltroon. I have watched this whole affair from the beginning and can't see how any perceptive observer can fail to smell a rat.

If Kerodin is not an agitprop tool of The Enemy, he is an unwitting dupe of the same.

What bthe hell is wrong with Pete? He has turned off comments over there or I would be asking him...

WTF! over?

It's a scam. Making your own "Compound" or town like this is a bad idea. A better idea would be to organize (if you even could) a number of like minded people to move to a small, established town and slowly take over as houses and businesses become available. It worked for the BS-Crazy Scientologists:

"What the hell is wrong with Pete? He has turned off comments over there or I would be asking him..."

I never understood it. It is a matter of considerable personal pain to me, for I always believed Pete was a good guy. Hell, I still do. But his enamor of someone who is a convicted extortionist and who advocates the killing of innocents presenting himself as the leader of anything? I still don't get it and probably never will.

That whole fan club of this guy`s sounds like a bunch of kids. Question anything he does or says and they go berserk. There are about a dozen who swap spit at their keyboard command posts 24 / 7 . Its a damn shame some good people who shun the limelight have attached them selves to this blowhard. They showed up at a PATCON last fall with a 1911/45 and AR-15 that had some really tricked out laser art work advertising their weapons Co. Hooks for suckers and their money. He has issued another appeal for names on a list of supporters , the 3rd time in less than a year. How stupid can some people get.

I looked at the layout of the "Citadel" and thought "my, how medieval!" I think someone has been watching the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy too much.

"Take over?" What's wrong with this picture?

Why not find a community of people somewhat close to where you are in philosophy and JOIN them? Become part of that community, contribute to it, learn from them and do legitimate things that will help them learn from you.

"Taking over" is arrogant, tyrant crap. Find a community and help BUILD it.

So K convinced a journalist to write and publish a positive story. He has done that in the past (see link below). It's part of his MO. We can see where this went in the past and perhaps where this is going today.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/osint/message/36461

Back when K was conducting his extortion scheme he was taking advantage of the national mood. This was post-9/11 and people had security fears. While most of the nation was coming together with a sense of national unity in ways I've never witnessed in my life (remember all the huge flags at all the gas stations?). K, however, was busy trying to exploit that national fear for personal gain. Today, the national mood is different, yet K is once again taking advantage of that anti-government sentiment for personal gain. He's basically repeating his past actions (aka mistakes). Again, that's part of his MO and we can see where this is going.

Lastly, K didn't think his past extortion scheme was truly an extortion scheme. In other words, he was ignorant. When he later got into the publishing business he didn't know how to import a Word document into Corel (see link below) such as Word and Corel. This seems to be a guy who gets knee-deep into things without really knowing what he is doing. That's not the kind of "project manager" I'd want to get behind, especially when a firearms company is involved. Entirely too much can go wrong very quickly with some very serious legal charges and penalties to follow. Investors beware!

I'll bet you one million "Ameros" that kerodin won';t be there when it happens... assuming that Fantasy Island ever actually materializes.

Anyone have a picture and an address on this mole/tool?

bubba said...

I would like to see their previous successes in life (and in building community). How well did they do in High School, did they go to college or trade school? When did they serve in the military and doing what? How well loved are they in the community they now live in and how much will they be missed? How they ever run a successful business of any size for any length of time?

I don't know if they are just living a fantasy or if they have dreams of getting rich. Frankly, to me, they sound like knuckleheads.

Looks like they (Kerodin and crowd) are planning on spending a lot of money to build a target.
