UPDATE #1 – Fear and Loathing – : ‘The Citadel: Gun-Loving Americans Signing Up to Live in Idaho Fortress Community’

iii arms

Do you have to join a group to be a patriotic American? Does not joining make you less patriotic?

Which defination of ‘American Exceptionalsim’ do they follow? Our religious  exceptionalism? Our military exceptionalism? Our consumer capitalism exceptionalism?

Liberty as defined by our Founding Fathers is our Constitution.

Interesting you must sign a pledge to your fellow ‘full time’ residents but not to the United States Of America.

Yes. There are so many hurricanes in the middle of Idaho so the focus will be on finances and skills to be usefull and employable after an economic collapse.

Or not……
#1 – ‘exceptions for absences’. You are ‘free’ but not to leave without premission?

#2 – ‘Every able-bodied Patriot aged 13 and older governed by this Agreement shall annually demonstrate proficiency with the rifle’.

#3 – ‘Every able-bodied Patriot aged 13 and older governed by this Agreement shall annually demonstrate proficiency with a handgun’.

#4 – ‘Every able-bodied Patriot of age within the Citadel will maintain one AR15 variant in 5.56mm NATO, at least 5 magazines and 1,000 rounds of ammunition’.
‘Every able-bodied Patriot will be responsible for maintaining a Tactical Go Bag or Muster Kit to satisfy the Minuteman concept’.

#7 – ‘Every child attending Citadel schools — with parental discretion for maturity — shall have as part of every semester’s class curriculum basic marksmanship and firearms safety training leading to the proficiency test on the child’s 13th birthday as a “Coming of Age” rite of passage’. ‘Children attending schools beyond the Citadel, or home-schooled, are required to meet the same proficiency standards at age 13’.

#8 – ‘All Patriots, who are of age and are not legally restricted from bearing firearms, shall agree to remain armed with a loaded sidearm whenever visiting the Citadel Town Center. Firearm shall be on-the-person and under the control of the Resident, not merely stored in a vehicle’.

#9 – ‘Each household will provide ONE able-bodied Patriot (aged 13 or older) who shall muster one Saturday per month for Martial/Support Training for neighborhood-level training & musters, as set forth by the Militia Commanders of the Community’.

# 10 – ‘Twice annually a full-scale Town Defense Drill will be held for all households and all residents (once in winter weather & once in summer weather)’.

From their website :

‘The Citadel is evolving as a planned community where residents are bound together by’:

•’Patriotism’
•’Pride in American Exceptionalism’
•’Our proud history of Liberty as defined by our Founding Fathers, and’
•’Physical preparedness to survive and prevail in the face of natural catastrophes — such as Hurricanes Sandy or Katrina — or man-made catastrophes such as a power grid failure or economic collapse’.

‘Every Patriot selected to live within the Citadel Community will voluntarily agree to follow the footsteps of our Founding Fathers’.

‘The Citadel Community is to be a bastion of Liberty in America’.

‘Patriots: The following represents a voluntary set of conditions to which every single Patriot who accepts a residence in the Citadel must agree, in writing’.

‘One: Once ratified, this list of conditions may only be altered by unanimous consent of all parties governed by this Agreement, i.e. full-time Residents’.
‘Full-time residency will be defined by a select panel of full-time Residents who will also establish guidelines for acceptable exceptions for absences’.

‘Two: Every able-bodied Patriot aged 13 and older governed by this Agreement shall annually demonstrate proficiency with the rifle of his/her choice by hitting a man-sized steel target at 100 yards with open sights at the Citadel range. Each Resident shall have 10 shots and must hit the target at least 7 times’.

‘Three: Every able-bodied Patriot aged 13 and older governed by this Agreement shall annually demonstrate proficiency with a handgun of choice by hitting a man-sized steel target at 25 yards with open sights at the Citadel range. Each Resident shall have 10 shots and must hit the target at least 7 times’.

‘Four: Every able-bodied Patriot of age within the Citadel will maintain one AR15 variant in 5.56mm NATO, at least 5 magazines and 1,000 rounds of ammunition’.
‘The responsibility for maintaining functional arms and ammunition levels for every member of the household shall fall to the head of household’.
‘Every able-bodied Patriot will be responsible for maintaining a Tactical Go Bag or Muster Kit to satisfy the Minuteman concept. Details TBD and posted elsewhere’.

‘Five: Every household within the Citadel will remain stocked with sufficient food, water, and other preparedness essentials (to be detailed elsewhere) to sustain the needs for every member of the household for a duration of one year’.

‘Six: Every able-bodied Patriot aged 13 and older shall pass a class every three years sponsored by the Citadel on basic emergency medical care; the courses shall focus on battlefield and wilderness environments’.

‘Seven: Every child attending Citadel schools — with parental discretion for maturity — shall have as part of every semester’s class curriculum basic marksmanship and firearms safety training leading to the proficiency test on the child’s 13th birthday as a “Coming of Age” rite of passage (a parent may attend the classes or personally train the child if so desired). Children attending schools beyond the Citadel, or home-schooled, are required to meet the same proficiency standards at age 13.

‘Eight: All Patriots, who are of age and are not legally restricted from bearing firearms, shall agree to remain armed with a loaded sidearm whenever visiting the Citadel Town Center. Firearm shall be on-the-person and under the control of the Resident, not merely stored in a vehicle’.

‘Nine: Each household will provide ONE able-bodied Patriot (aged 13 or older) who shall muster one Saturday per month for Martial/Support Training for neighborhood-level training & musters, as set forth by the Militia Commanders of the Community’.
‘No single Patriot shall be required to muster more than once per quarter’.
‘In the course of every calendar year every able-bodied Patriot and every full-time resident in each household must participate in at least three musters (one neighborhood-level and two full-scale). Part-time residents must participate, in good faith, to the best of their ability’.

Ten: Twice annually a full-scale Town Defense Drill will be held for all households and all residents (once in winter weather & once in summer weather)

  1. Oh wow. It’s like a tiny totalitarian militarist state. Even Soviet Union, the “evil empire”, did not require that level of military/survival preparation. If this were a Middle Eastern state, the same liberty-loving communists (whatever is the proper term for community residents) would be screaming that we should nuke it immediately. If that’s not ironic enough, these freedom-loving patriots prepare for a showdown with the same most likely enemy as that imaginary Middle Eastern state, that is, American armed forces.

  2. One other question popped into my head… what if an able-bodied Patriot hits the target 6 times instead of 7 on the annual proficiency exam? Does that person gets stoned, fed to the wolves, expelled, or turned into slave?

    • (chuckles) All I can surmise is that on their site, they do list a ‘stockade’.
      One can only hope that it’s in the ‘public square’.
      Actually I did a little digging as this place would not be that far from me and we already have more then our far share of wackos, this group appears to be a con job.
      No time to post today so tomorrow.
      Oh and the walls of the fortress will be 5′ thick and 20′ high.
