Getting down toward the end.

My apologies for no posts, but I'm in the end stages. The docs give me about 4 weeks and I still have a lot to get done before I check out. I'll have more later today (I hope) about projects still in motion but right now that's all I can muster. God bless you all for the many prayers and support you have extended to me and my family.

Mike,

I don't have the words.

I saw you a few years back at a talk you gave in Charlotte, MI.

I'll see you at the great and eternal reunion.

Moe Grimm said...

Well Mike, they've been wrong before. I've been checking back here several times a day hoping to see that Magpul article pushed down in thread. Today I got what I was praying for signaling you're there. You're back. For what it's worth, and I believe many like ME "discovered" you later on during the course of all your work, well beyond even F&F, and what hangs ominously over this great Country. For your unwavering work. Many here will shed blood, some their very lives, before we are once again united under and fully the United States Constitution. But we've mercifully been able to delay it I believe very close to as far as we likely can. I am for your knowledge, untiring and unwavering efforts better prepared for what is now sealed. And regardless of who "wins" the coming election. Likely Clinton if the TrumpCHUMPS proceed thinking their leftist founded Trump can possibly win though he's sure attached a ring to their noses with a chain. He can not and will not for this overwhelmingly remains very much the same dazed, confused, duped, Doped up, willfully ignorant, hapless, helpless, hopeless, slovenly, willfully ignorant electorate that validated the Spectacular Incompetent bh0bama in 2008 and again in 2012. Not once, but TWICE.

YOU have made me a better American father to our children who I made watch many of your travels addressing Patriots all over the Country. Mostly those recorded at youtube. It certainly changed critical components of their thinking towards what they otherwise may have taken too lightly from Cindy and I. At 23 and 20 years of age they're nearing critical understanding. I only wish we could have made the recent trip to Pinson to help with the work day and shook your hand in person to thank you. YOU Mike have bridged the gap.

We continue to Pray for you, Rosie and the kids. Doubt these words suffice, but our sentiment of indebtedness and respect for all you do and have done is quite real. Your picture, and it's a damn good one we've had enlarged and framed hangs in our house on what we've designated our "Wall of Honor" joining many American Patriots. But of course it's way more than this. There it will always remain until passed to our boys, our grandchildren, and beyond.

Our Prayers, Love, Profound Thanks, and Respect to you Sir. Now and always. We will Not forget.

Truly,
Tom, Cindy, TJ. Mikey.

Mike, although I can't say that I've agreed 100% with all of your views and stances, there is no doubt that you have done much more than most all of us (myself included) to advance the torch of freedom and beat back the darkness of tyranny. For those actions, we certainly owe you a debt of gratitude.

A few words of solace from someone more eloquent than I are all I can offer.

“So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart.

Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours.

Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life.

Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people.

Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.

Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place.

Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself.

Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.

When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way.

Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”

~ Chief Tecumseh

Bill (Bad Cyborg) Mullins said...

One of the great regrets of my life is that I let my fear of the government keep me from going to hear and meet you when you spoke in San Antonio. I had just gotten shed of false charges and was free from having to appear at the courthouse once a month and no longer had to check in with the bail bondsman every Tuesday. There had been so much on the news about what SAPD was going to do to people who showed up and even worse to anyone who openly carried a long gun. Having only just (3 days earlier) gotten free of leviathan's jaws I was afraid of being ensnared once again. I allwoed my rear to control me rather than controlling my fear. I would have loved to heard you speak and shaken your hand.

You shall be missed.

Dear Mike,
I've been reading your blog for many years now, and I feel like I know you as a friend even though we've never met in person. I had the pleasure of talking to you on the phone a few years ago, it made my week. You are truly a giant in the land of patriots, the work you have done to educate friend and foe alike has made a difference in this Republic's struggle for freedom. You've also made the enemies of freedom nervous... God Bless you for that and so much more. Like I told you on the phone, there are many people who have and will continue to keep you and yours lifted up in prayer. Go rest high on that mountain my friend.
With love and respect,

One can only hope to leave America a better place after they are gone then when they are born. In your case, you have achieved what the rest of us can only stand back and admire in awe.
I of course echo all the well wishes and prayers for your health and healing that others have sent. To have lived a life that ends in being loved by so many, even if cut unfairly short, is a goal that any of us would be glad to reach, but few could have the courage that it has taken you to get there.
If we are able to return this nation to it's proper path it will be because of you and a few others like you. God has a place waiting close by his side to greet you, and to say well done. May you and your family know peace now and in the future.

God bless you, sir! Thanks for all the knowledge you have given me and our fellow Patriots. I had the pleasure to meet you one-on-one when I was returning to work after leaving early on 9/12/09, the March on Washington. I was carrying one of the Nyberg Flags on a quarter round. You were sitting next to the IRS building (of all places) on some benches under the trees. We exchanged some words. I still have my flag with me. We're here to break more windows, to accept no free Wacos and no more Ft. Sumters.

Thank you for the knowledge you've imparted. Thank you for sharing with us the love you have for our country, its founding struggles, its principles and its glorious -- and sometimes not so glorious -- history. I'm grateful for having had the opportunity to know you through your writings, Mike.

And though you're a Dutchman through and through, I'll leave you with this Irish saying, wrapped in a prayer for you and your loved ones:

May the burdens of the day rest lightly upon you.
And may God enfold you in the mantle of His love.

As my beloved kept reminding me, she was going HOME with her Lord and I was going to be stuck here for a time watching our world come apart at the seams. May the Lord bless you and keep you through your final days in this broken world, and may He comfort your loved ones through the days to come.

It's been no secret that we have not gotten along well in this life. But what you are going through now is something I watched my mother go through as a young man, and I do not wish it on my worst enemy. You are hardly that. You have tremendous public speaking and organizational skills that I did not appreciate when I first became aware of you. Your work with Fast and Furious was the height of citizen journalism. I've appreciated your even keel in some of the late standoffs, as things seemed to be moving toward the precipic. I'll admit your instincts have been more prophetic than mine in the past eight years. Whatever lies for you beyond this life, I wish you well. Having been the family on the other side of the cancer equation, I made what happened to my mother part of me, and I do not think it detracted from who I am. I am sure your family will endure, as I have tried to. I will never forget my mother and I am sure you're family, friends, and fans will never forget you.

Most people never back their words with action. You Have.
Most people never share their thoughts or wisdom nor justify nor reason their positions. You Have.
Most people fade at the appearance of authority, you have shown their impotence and inspired others to act.
Most people never show passion about anything but themselves. You have shared and reasoned passion about freedom and Liberty and genuine concern for the Individual's Liberty and therefore for us all.
I am truly blessed to have been able to study and watch a great man and his conduct.
Please leave knowing that it is not what you did not get done , but, that which you have did and shared, that from this distance is an incredible and inspirational thing.
Leave in peace my friend. I will catch up with you on the other side.

Your spoken words have given many new hope and encouragement to continue the fight for their rights against the maniacal, power hungry zealots of this world.

For my friend and teacher Mike Vanderboegh, who showed me the wisdom of the Founders.

"Our country is in danger, but not to be despaired of. Our enemies are numerous and powerful; but we have many friends, determining to be free, and heaven and earth will aid the resolution. On you depend the fortunes of America. You are to decide the important question, on which rest the happiness and liberty of millions yet unborn. Act worthy of yourselves."

I see you have passed the torch to your son. If he's half the man you are the cause is in good hands. Rest easy Mike, you have kindled a fire that will burn for more generations than you could ever have foreseen.

I can hardly expect to add much to the deeply felt messages here, and only hope I don't detract. But I do not forebear to say it has been an honor and a pleasure to learn of and from your thoughts and insights posted here, Mike Vanderboegh.

May God be with us all, ere we meet again.

Death is our final enemy. Why didn't Adam & Eve eat from the Tree of Life first then never from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil? We could have lived forever in the Garden of Eden in God's presence. My how easily each of us can run something that's so perfect!

Congratulations Mike on knowing your destination and realizing it is assured because you know your Creator God and believe on His Son Jesus the Christ, His perfect life, His death on the cross for all our sins, and His resurrection from the dead. He shows us the way and oh what a joy in this messed up world to know the truth and to be free.

His blessings to you and your family brother!

You have run the race well. You have impacted others and left them better off for it. You will be missed.
Your fate is now in the hands of our LORD, who has a plan that is much better than the best that we can imagine here on Earth.
So Long, I'll be one of those guys who looks you up in the New Jerusalem and thanks you.

Mike, I'm very glad we finally met.

Dutchman,
Your presence on this blog has comforted me in times of need, hurried me in times of haste and alarmed me in times of danger. Thank you for all you have done for the III percent community and for all patriots where ever they be. You have not gone quietly into that good night, like you said you would not. You have provided us with an example to not just live by, but to teach others to live by! There is no finer example of a true Patriot than you, Dutchman, and I would be surprised if there ever is anyone who can match your caliber.

I noticed that you have given the reins to your son, Matthew. I trust that he is his father's son, and will carry the torch proudly, in your name ! I believe he will make you proud!

Vaya con dios, mi amigo!This is one of the saddest days on the internet ever, for today I lost my favorite blogger!

May the Good Lord take a liking to you, Mike. But not too soon!

See you on the other side, Dutchman, we will talk then. I wish you an enlightening journey.

I regret that we never got to meet, Mike. However many days you have left, my thought is that you should reflect on the good you've done rather than what others would point at what they claim are your mistakes. Which I have no doubt you're doing.

Mike,

Not everyone makes a difference in this old world. You, sir, clearly are one who makes a great difference. When you meet John Parker, Isaac Davis, and all the rest of the Founding Fathers, they will be pleased to hear there are still men who know very well what they are about, and who still spit in the eye of tyrants. God Bless you, sir! I will miss your clear and reasoned voice.

family. You are a great role model. I hope your last few weeks/days are
productive but more that that, peaceful. Your work will be felt and
remembered for generations to come; believe it!!

We consider it an honor to have met you both during the work weekend.
Please, if we can do anything for you both, don't hesitate to let us know.
Mike, you have made such a difference in my life and so many more lives.
Go rest high on that mountain....

I'm at a loss for words but I'll give it a shot.

Your writing upended my worldview in more ways than I have time to describe or than you have time left to read. You are my Dr Richter and I never even got to meet you in person.

I have heard it said that this country has been forsaken by God. That He sent you to us shows otherwise.

Thank you for everything you have done for us and in so doing, shown us how to do for ourselves. Please look to your family now, and then when it is time, rest easy Mr. Vanderboegh.

Happy trails,

I am seldom moved to tears for some one I have never met in the flesh I have wished for years that I might meet you and personally thank you for your incites, wisdom, clarity and brass balls. I cant say exactly when I first started reading your blog, but from that time I never missed an entry in it. You have a talent for making it clear, simple and for inspiring others. If I can accomplish just 1/4 of what you have done, I will be happy that I have let my mark.
If there is an after life, I will make a point of giving you a shout and a thumbs up from my place in Valhalla...and maybe even bring over some Mead...
May you receive your reward.

I still have it in it's plastic envelope.. Your speech was compelling to the crowd of believers. Thank you for your work and your vigilance. May God have mercy. Hail Mary,full of grace,the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amoung women,and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God,pray for us sinners,now, and at the hour of our death.

One Praying for You said...

Mike,

Your writing and example turned this greenhorn millennial into someone who refuses to rely on others to protect my own life and interests. I have learned so much about history from your prompting and learned that things in history are not always what they seem (especially when the government tells the tale). You have enriched my life and thus the lives of my wife and children, and have made ripples that will continue for generations to come. That's all a man can hope to achieve on this earth, isn't it? You've done well.

Prayers.

I've not agreed with you on all of your positions, but I appreciate the glimpses at the process that got you there. Your writing and candor have swayed several people I know who I thought couldn't be reached, and you're one of the rare ones that actually puts their own butt on the line when you advocate a course of action.

I sorely regret getting to shake your hand in CT.

Thank you.

MrGarabaldi said...

Mike;

I started Reading SSI and the "War on Guns" right after you and David broke the F&F. a.k.a the end run around the 2nd amendment. I consider you and Breitbart the new voice of the Citizen journalism movement, when y'all would publish stuff that the mainstream media wouldn't because they are beholding to an agenda and not the truth. What y'all did started me on the blogging movement.
You are respected by your friends and feared by your enemies..a better epitaph no man can have. May God speed you and your family through this difficult time.

Respectfully

"MrGarabaldi"

Mike. I found SSI before F&F and started sharing your wisdom and insights immediately. Your love for what this country was founded on and your willingness to call out the modern day tyrants has been an inspiration for all of us out here. Your constant reminders of history's noble warriors has encouraged us to stand up {or perhaps duck down} and challenge those who seek to oppress this great country. Only the ignorant repeat history, Thank You for helping us learn from it. Thank You for those Praxis postings, the humor you've shared and those 0300 hr postings of Robert Service. You will be missed my brother, my daily prayer for you is that your final journey be smooth and swift, lifted up by angels and that your family feels their presence and is comforted by their grace.

Mike, I deeply regret not getting to meet you, and I want to let you know you have always been the place I turn to when everything spins out of direction to set me on a straight course again. Yes, you have been that shining light of pure freedom, the act of being free without hurting others. My prayers are and will still be with you and now that my wife of 23 years has passed 2 weeks ago, maybe she will get the chance to do what I never did, meet and talk with you. If you do, maybe you can offer her some of your insight and help adjusting to the new surrounding. You will be truly missed and I wish you the best. God Bless you Mike and may he keep you in the palm of his hand. Paul
