The Amateur Society: The Final Furlong Is Just The Beginning



Our regular open call will take place tonight, Monday 10/31, at 8:00pm eastern time via Skype. To join in please send us a contact request on Skype by searching for our account name amateursociety. If you have any questions or need clarification, please drop us a line on the contact page here or email us directly at

In our last meeting I said that all options were still on the table. And then, right on cue, the most dramatic and heated election of my lifetime got even stranger. With the FBI reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server and Wikileaks going into ‘Phase 3’ of its election coverage, we are in for a final beleaguering week before the election on November 8th. Polls that had double digit leads for Hillary just a week ago are now within the margin of error. We will discuss the implications of the latest political developments and look ahead to after the initial results are announced.

Bring your questions to our open forum and join us for another lively meeting of The Amateur Society. We look forward to having you with us. Stay safe and God bless!



God Never Laughs At An Honest Heart – Pastor Carter Conlon – Times Square Church – 10.30.2016


It is time to press in to God. You know what you have to do and what you have to stop doing. Tomorrow is not promised. Today is the day of salvation.

God Never Laughs At An Honest Heart – Pastor Carter Conlon – Times Square Church – 10.30.2016

The Call of Wisdom

20 Wisdom cries aloud in the street,
    in the markets she raises her voice;
21 at the head of the noisy streets she cries out;
    at the entrance of the city gates she speaks:
22 “How long, O simple ones, will you love being simple?
How long will scoffers delight in their scoffing
    and fools hate knowledge?
23 If you turn at my reproof,
behold, I will pour out my spirit to you;
    I will make my words known to you.
24 Because I have called and you refused to listen,
    have stretched out my hand and no one has heeded,
25 because you have ignored all my counsel
    and would have none of my reproof,
26 I also will laugh at your calamity;
    I will mock when terror strikes you,
27 when terror strikes you like a storm
    and your calamity comes like a whirlwind,
    when distress and anguish come upon you.
28 Then they will call upon me, but I will not answer;
    they will seek me diligently but will not find me.
29 Because they hated knowledge
    and did not choose the fear of the Lord,
30 would have none of my counsel
    and despised all my reproof,
31 therefore they shall eat the fruit of their way,
    and have their fill of their own devices.
32 For the simple are killed by their turning away,
    and the complacency of fools destroys them;
33 but whoever listens to me will dwell secure
    and will be at ease, without dread of disaster.”

Proverbs 1:20-33

Soaring Eagle Radio 64 – Dr. Michael Lake – The Sheeriyth Imperative


Check out the link below for another fantastic episode of Soaring Eagle Radio with Pastor Mike Spaulding of Calvary Chapel of Lima, Ohio. Follow the links to listen to and view more material from Pastor Mike including on YouTube here.


From the Introduction of Dr. Michael Lake’s book, The Sherriyth Imperative, we read these words:

“In The Shinar Directive, we journeyed down the Luciferian rabbit hole to discover the matrix of darkness that has engulfed our planet. The stark truth of how esoteric societies have labored for millennia to alter our perception of reality and bring us into a pseudo‐captivity is quite alarming. The wide reception of my first book has caused believers around the world to shake off their techno‐sorcery induced, spiritual coma and realize just how close we are to the fulfillment of Nimrod’s dark directive.”

This episode of Soaring Eagle Radio is my interview with Dr. Michael Lake about his newest book The Sheeriyth Imperative.

Believe it or not, fiction is one of our most useful tools for spreading awareness about preparing for adverse scenarios and actually getting prepared ourselves. Effective, relevant fiction writing is capable of reaching audiences that manuals, articles, and essays cannot. People who aren’t already fully dedicated to the concepts of risk assessment and tactical preparation – and even many who are – just get bored when they encounter material that reads like instructions for assembling furniture. This is an unfortunate facet of human nature that has been exacerbated by our current cultural climate, but we must acknowledge the facts on the ground even if we would prefer them to be otherwise. A full spectrum preparation mindset requires this attitude of realism. Fiction is not a catch-all tool, but it must be part of our toolbox as we engage our communities and plan for a variety of potential situations. Remember: the truth is stranger than fiction.

Sgt. Tim – Why I Support Donald Trump for the Presidency


We have twelve days before November 8, the day this country will select the next President of the United States of America. Those of you that are regular readers of Outlaw Patriot News and have heard me in some of my appearances know that for some time I have expressed my doubts in Donald Trump as president, not from a position of supporting Hillary Clinton or any of the third party candidates, but I have had some trouble with some of the things he has said during the course of his campaign and his demeanor. I am not talking about the comments the media has spent so much time covering taken from a hot mic inside of a bus. If you have ever sat in a room full of military guys, you have heard much worse than what Trump said, anyhow – and, no, they are not sexual predators, either, but alpha male types have a tendency to try and show their prowess of conquest and as unacceptable as it may be, sometimes that runs into some pretty offensive talk. Besides, saying something like that is one thing, but actually raping women and then paying them off or covering it up in other ways, as the husband of the Democratic candidate did with her aid and complicity, is another. Yes, there was the parade of women recently claiming sexual assault by Trump, but this was the first they had spoken of it, and while I am definitely not into bashing victims here – it is odd that the timing of these claims coincide nicely with trying to influence the election.

Our Silence Is Deafening

All too often we look back into the great tragedies of history and ask ourselves how people could ever allow such evil to happen. Surely they were all monsters. Surely we are more vigilant and would never permit such atrocities. Surely we wouldn’t just sing a little louder…

Historical periods are largely remembered by the worst of what happened rather than the best, particularly when the egregious nature of the worst is such that it overwhelms any and all positive contributions. We like to think of ourselves as enlightened, modern, and sophisticated as a society. How deluded we are! We sneer at traditional values as outdated and barbaric while blood drips from our hands thanks to our silence.

Will history view us as the generation that sat idly by while tens of millions of innocent, defenseless unborn children were slaughtered? Or will history remember us as the generation that put an end to this genocide.

God forgive us!

Lord help us!

Ross Powell of Survival 401k – Full Spectrum Preparation: Political Perspectives

Scenario planning is a basic structure of preparation. While the full spectrum preparation mindset includes the fundamentals of physical supplies and invaluable skills, it also ventures into the broader realms of strategic evaluation. This expansion of focus can present significant obstacles to achieving maximum effectiveness. Since the stakes involve everything up to and including the future that we and our families will encounter, we must be aware of these obstacles as well as the decision-making parameters that will guide us in applying our full spectrum preparation mindset. The central question here is about control, and the central topic here is political perspectives.

Political realities are critically important, and we have no control over that fact. Like it or not, it is readily apparent that politics plays a significant role in determining the types of outcomes that we will need to prepare for. Of course, by default we should plan for the worst case scenario, but even so, the probabilities of various events will certainly be altered by the ever-shifting political winds. The current election cycle in the US has given us a first-hand encounter with both the importance of political outcomes and the uncertainty that can be created by the prospect of political disruption and divergence. It would be wise to avoid ruling out any scenario at this time, and the lack of clarity can be frustrating unless we acknowledge that it is unavoidable.
