    This one is from December of 2018. But it's not really dated. It's still applicable.

    Who knows about Time, Distance and Cover?

    Who knows about Auditory Exclusion?

    Beau knows about Fight, Flight or Freeze. Many folks leave out the third one...

    Here's the militarization of the police video which Beau mentions at the beginning of the above video.

    What's the difference between a warrior and a killer? It's not a trick question.

    Beau is prolific ... I wish I could find out more about his background, he's an interesting character, out of character. Just listening and watching gives me a sense of dissonance.

    Dissonance with what?


    So far, I see a passionate and very smart/able man who is working on community organization/networks.

    I see a man who really cares about his country rather than a team.

    I see a man who understands history and doesn't just reject it.

    I see a man who would be both good to work with and have a beer with.

    true, He's just not fitting into my stereotype ... I worked with a guy for a short while, that did similar trainings, a good guy, but I wouldn't have trusted him farther than I could throw him. Beau is different, he's a 'strong' type with a heart, head, and very admirable values ... it just doesn't 'feel right' to me. A redneck angel. There's a guy I follow for tech information ... He's an australian, when I think australian I don't think 'helpful' and often i don't think 'sensitive' (Maybe I watched too many beer commercials). This guy is the most helpful, brilliant tutor, his nickname is AngelSix, and it fits, he's a freaking angel.

    Sounds like you need to step out of your expectations.

    He said himself that he might look homeless due to his beard. Some folks might think muslim. But then they aren't really thinking, are they?

    If you listened to his conversation with Trae you'll recall Trae relating that the most common comment he gets is that folks didn't know anyone in the south thought the way he does.

    They also had expectations.

    We need to step away from those. They are a trap.

    That's what Trump has done. He has trapped people in their expectations.

    I want to post more on the police and justice but not before keeping up with the current of current affairs.

    There are signs that something has changed...

    Destroying is easy. Building is hard. And much more rewarding.

    Beau Of The Fifth Column: Interesting Perspective, Crazy Times




    With “the news” itself (liberal, conservative or fake) making news these days, here’s a new voice joining the conversation about masculinity, guns and politics. Thanks Ryan Humphrey for putting him on my radar.

    Of course, I had to dig into what this guy is about. Here’s what I’ve discovered so far.

    His real name is Justin King. He’s what’s called an adversarial journalist. He’s also an ex-private military contractor. He comes from a military family, born in Japan. He’s spent time in jail as a result of some of his military “work.”

    He’s an activist and an anarchist. He’s left-leaning (I think) but as opposed to many left-leaning activists of the Democratic Socialist ilk who are agitating for more government involvement and caretaking, he’s looking for less. He’s more of a survivalist.
    He’s also heavy into conservation – especially of wolves.
    I’m still baffled as to exactly what he’s about. But for anyone who is curious about politics – both global and domestic – and who is skeptical about current news (from all sources and political leanings), this is an intriguing new voice to add to the mix.
    I was not expecting to hear what I heard him say based on how he looks and sounds (and he often references that disconnect).
    Please watch his videos (below) – I’ll be extremely curious to know what you think.

    I'm curious, NAP. Where is this from?

    I saw Beau's videos pop up when I was listening to Carpo719. I didn't watch any at first. Eventually I did. He's been hinting here and there at his experience but I haven't researched him.

    It's pretty self-evident that he cares about the Constitution, doesn't fall for bullshit, and understands a great deal about police and the military.


    Wolves are incredibly smart and also a top predator who increases rather than decreasing the biodiversity of it's habitat.

    We are a top predator which decreases the biodiversity of our habitat which is the whole planet. We could learn some things from the wolves, methinks.

    yeah, interesting guy ... a powerful guy, I dare say ... I mentioned before knowing a former seal named Bad 'Bo', and just wondering if there was a connection. I don't think there is. Bad 'bo' bosiljevac

    This is a post regarding him:
    I'm going to make an ass out of myself for even putting down Tim's name, but was just curious as to if either Frog/Tri/Fred knew/know him personally? This is just mainly a check on the latter two as opposed to the former:

    - LCDR Tim Bosiljevac (70s Era Former 75th Ranger Regiment & Pathfinder Type HOOAH), Currently In Va., Graduated BUD/S Class 118 in Jul 82. - 18 Years on the teams ... SEAL Team 1/2/4/6/8/DEVGRU blah blah blah, this I'm sure you all know so moving along ... etc. etc. etc. One of the toughest SOBs that I've ever had the pleasure of standing in the same room with.

    - Dwight Collins - Would be in that same period, Class 117/118/119

    - Kevin Williams - Same as above

    Take care, and thanks in advance.

    - Out

    ------------------
    w/ Regards,
    Jeff Rambo


    I don't know who this is but it has to be a relative, how far have the mighty fallen. (I think it is Bad 'Bo's nephew) ... wow, that sucks. I have a feeling I know this guy's parents, friends of mine.

    Former Emporia High teacher arrested, charged with 8 counts of sexual crimes against six students



    Lyon County District Court has released more details in a case against a former Emporia High School social studies teacher who was arrested on multiple charges relating to complaints made by students earlier this year.

    Tyler J. Bosiljevac, 39, of Emporia was arrested and booked into Lyon County Detention Center on eight charges against six victims relating to allegations of inappropriate sexual relations and battery Thursday morning.

    The charges include two counts of Attempted Unlawful Voluntary Sexual Relations with a child under the age of 16, Attempted Sexual Exploitation of a Child between the ages 14 — 16 for purposes of employment, Sexual Battery on a child over the age of 16 with the intent to arouse or satisfy sexual desires, and three counts of Indecent Liberties with a Child between the ages of 14 -16, in which Bosiljevac engaged in lewd fondling or touching.

    An affidavit has been filed with the Lyon County Attorney’s Office and is sealed to protect the identities of the victims.

    The investigation began in February after complaints were made by a student to a staff member at EHS were reported to the Emporia Police Department regarding improper behavior by Bosiljevac.

    “The investigation led to dozens of interviews with students,” Captain David DeVries said in a written release. “Multiple victims were found.”

    Bosiljevac’s contract with the school district was terminated by the USD 253 Board of Education Feb. 26 during a closed executive session. The reasons for termination were later released and include:

    Failing to demonstrate sound professional judgment;
    Violating Board Policy GAAC, Sexual Harassment, which prohibits sexual harassment;
    Violating Board Policy GAF Staff-Student Relations, which requires staff members to maintain professional relationships with students which are conducive to an effective education environment;
    Violating Board Policy GBU Ethics, which requires an educator to recognize the basic dignities of all individuals with whom he interacts in the performance of his duties;
    Violating Board Policy EBB, which addresses the provision of a safe environment for students while in school attendance; and
    Failing to maintain a positive learning environment for students.
    Bosiljevac is scheduled to appear in court Monday.

    Beau of the Fifth Column seems like someone I'd want to have as a friend. Both to help me learn things and to have my back.
