I Took An Oath

Geared up

Hello friends and family.  This post has been on my heart for awhile now.  Most of you have known me for years and some have known me my whole life.  You know I love Jesus with all my heart and I hate violence.  But I want to be very clear about something.  God’s Word teaches us that love always protects, and I will fight to protect my family and my country that I love.

“Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

1 Corinthians 13:6-7

When I see all these videos of innocent people being savagely beaten by BLM and Antifa terrorists, it makes the vengeance of God fan into flame deep within my soul.  I am praying for peace.  I don’t want bloodshed.  I know a civil war would be brutal.  I know once all the Patriots have finally had enough and we take hold of our Constitutional right to form militias, those violent punks won’t know what hit them!  Americans have had enough and we are already seeing people start to form up and fight back.

Just yesterday I saw news about Catholics who were beat up by a BLM mob while they were trying to pray.  It disgusted me to see that old man being beat on by those pathetic chumps.  How much more violence are we going to allow?  If the authorities won’t do their jobs and protect people, then we will do it ourselves, and we have the Constitutional right to do so.

That couple in St. Louis who stood on their front lawn armed and ready to defend themselves and their home have had enough, and so have I.  We recently had a warning of a threat on our local NextDoor app about some BLM nutcase threatening to send mobs to the suburbs and “threaten white people.”  I’m telling you folks, they better not come around here.  I will meet force with overwhelming force and I will defend my family to the death.  Nobody has the right to attack me or my family, but I do have the right to protect myself and my family.

I told you this whole thing is a violent socialist insurrection based on Marxist ideology.  This is not about cops and “social justice.”  This is a highly organized and well funded socialist revolution and they are attempting to tear down everything American, including removing God from society.  They will not succeed as long as brave Patriots stand up to evil!  I will never bow to the mob!  I bow to God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ!

I would have stood shoulder to shoulder with that couple in St. Louis.  I will not let anyone hurt my family or my neighbors.  I will not let evil prevail in my presence.  I will fight back and overcome it in the power of the Holy Spirit!  I don’t want violence.  I hate violence!  Just remember, protecting those you love is not violent, it is loving.

The hateful racist BLM and Antifa hordes are the ones who are violent committing acts of heinous violence in our streets.  I will never let that army of evil cause destruction and death in my neighborhood!  They want to keep threatening white people and they want to hate us just because we are white?  Okay, but they better be ready for the day God rises up in truth and justice and strikes them down through the God fearing Patriot militia!  Always remember, God is full of grace and truth.  He is a just and loving God who will bring justice with great vengeance and fury if He has to.

Sheriffs all over the country are already telling people to stand up and fight back.  Rally around your Sheriffs when the time comes and stay ready!  They can deputize you on the spot and it is the best way to legally form a Constitutional militia.  I never had the honor of serving in our armed forces, but I personally took the same oath and I intend on fulfilling it, even if it means my death.  If that’s what it takes for my kids and country to be free, then so be it.  I willingly serve at the pleasure of President Trump and my local Sheriff and I am awaiting orders.

“I, Ryan Callahan, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

This isn’t a joke.  This isn’t some tough talk nonsense or a rant.  I might not have had military experience, but I have been training my whole life.  I am a self-defense and gun enthusiast, and I’ve always enjoyed shooting.  From dry fire practice, range time, and speed drills to customizing my rifles and pistols, I am all in.  Iron sights are my favorite and the Lord has given me a gift in using them.  My initial instructor was an old Gunny type guy who spent 25 years training SWAT teams.  I even learned rock climbing and did rappelling down a huge mountain when I was in college.  I can rappel, I can shoot, and I can fight like any soldier out there and I am ready to join my brothers at any time.

Take a look at my photo.  That is a Patriot militia uniform.  Take a good look and notice the patches.  When you see us on the streets fighting Antifa and BLM terrorists, we will be easily identifiable so there is no confusion.  We won’t be in all black like the cowards.  I will be fighting under the legal Constitutional right to wear that uniform and fulfill my oath.  When you see men like me in our uniforms, you will know we are not your enemy and we are there to help.  We are there to support our Sheriffs and all law enforcement officers and we are there to rescue you, your neighborhood, and your city.  We support and love all of our brave law enforcement officers!  Thank you for all you do!

Thin Blue Line flag

I read an article the other day written by famous country musician Charlie Daniels.  His words reached deep in my heart and touched my soul.  He is 83 years old and his words are very wise.  He warned that he has never seen a time like this in our country and he exhorted Americans to stand up tall for truth and righteousness.  It’s a short article, but it packs a punch.  Please take a moment to listen to him.

Pick a Side by Charlie Daniels

I completely agree with Charlie!  He is seeing things clearly in the power of the Holy Spirit when he says:

“The time is swiftly coming in America when everybody who cares about having a future is going to have to pick a side.

When you get past the very thin patina of  “peaceful” protest and look beyond the fallacy that violence and destruction bring about racial equality, you have to come to the conclusion that there is a radical fringe of people who would literally burn this country down, given the opportunity.

You’ll never here it in the media, but if you’re willing to scratch the surface and dig a little bit, it will dawn on you that this is not a simple protest against the unjust killing of a black man, but a revolutionary street battle against America and everything we stand for and it IS funded and lead by socialist factions, and it’s not just in the US but in many democratic nations around the world.

In other words, an all-out socialist attack on our Republic.”

-Charlie Daniels, Pick a Side

That’s exactly what we are witnessing!  That is what communists do!  They tear down morals and values, tear down law and order, tear down your history & replace it with lies, tear down faith in God, and then they establish their failed communist state where they rule with an iron fist and a boot to your face.  Believe me, the answer to 1984 is still 1776!

I am a believer in Jesus Christ, I am a conservative, and I am white.  Hate me if you want to, but know that I will never bow to any man, especially to those who spread hatred and lies and achieve their goals through chaos, destruction, and murdering innocent people in the streets.  If any BLM or Antifa terrorist happens to read this, know that I will be here to fight you, and my brothers and I will strike you down in the power of God.  He is coming for you and you better repent while you still can.

“But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days.  People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God–having a form of godliness but denying its power.  Have nothing to do with them.”

2 Timothy 3:1-5

Sound familiar?  Yes, I believe we are in the last days.  We don’t know how long it will take to play out and we don’t know the exact times or dates of the end, but we see the signs of the times all around us.  Jesus is indeed coming soon!  If you don’t know Jesus, now is a real good time to meet Him!

“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

Romans 10:9

God bless all the brave Patriot 3%ers in this country who are ready to fight back!  We are the last line of defense!  You are my brothers and sisters and I am with you!  Stand up for truth and righteousness and never back down!  God have mercy and God bless us with great victory!  God bless America!

“Praise be to the LORD my Rock,

who trains my hands for war,

my fingers for battle.

He is my loving God and my fortress,

my stronghold and my deliverer,

my shield, in whom I take refuge,

who subdues peoples under me.”

Psalm 144:1-2

Grace and peace to you all!

  1. Amen, Ryan. Whether you’ve served in the Armed Forces or not, you are welcome and worthy to fight for this Country. The oath you posted is the same oath I took upon enlistment and that has never expired for me. I never thought I’d see this day in America and I agree that this has nothing to do with George Floyd. They just needed a face for the movement and now they have it. He was a criminal too, so it makes sense he would be the face of their movement. God bless you brother.

      1. Awesome. I’m a little annoyed though that no one on either side is doing a thing to stop what’s happening. We’re not gonna be able to stop this unless we get serious and fight fire with fire. Our government has gotten so weak and pansy that even though they have all the fire power, they’re depending on the citizens to do the fighting.

  2. This terrorism and tearing down America has been brewing for a long, long time, I think since Trump was campaigning in Chicago and they had to cancel because Trump was worried somebody would get hurt. Those won’t protester’s, they were being paid by Soros. And, now the socialist nuts are using the Floyd killing to catapult their take over. I am losing my patience with these liberal mayors and governors who aren’t doing anything about people being beat up, the lawlessness and destruction, the loser squatters are lame! So, what does that tell us about the Democrat politicians, who just stand by and don’t say one thing about this lawlessness and violence against police? They don’t care about American’s, only being in power and they don’t care how they do it or who they hurt. It truly is unbelievable and disheartening. I am with you, Ryan, on standing up and protecting ourselves, our family, our neighbors, our beautiful country, our future and the country we love so much. It is our God given right to protect ourselves in the way you are talking about. Amen. Pray for peace, pray for our country and our leaders, and the world. This is the time to bring Jesus into your life if you haven’t already. Amen.

  3. God protect you and your family Ryan. I’m in prayer for you guys. All this upheaval is hell’s rage against God and His people, especially president Trump. I’m not an American, but one day God will commission me to America. While I wait for that day, my prayers will do the ministration. Bless you!

  4. I would like to challenge the idea that killing is a loving action.
    1. 3 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 2 Corinthians 10:4 & 5. Do we not have faith that the weapons of the Spirit will protect our children?
    2. In Matthew 8:5-13, Jesus demonstrates how to love our enemies. Romans were killing and enslaving Jews. Many were crucified. When the Centurion demonstrated faith, Jesus healed the servant of the enemy. Why should we kill our enemy when Jesus loved and healed his enemy?
    3. When Roman soldiers beat and whipped Jesus and forced a crown of thorns on his head, Jesus said forgive them for they don’t know what they are doing. We may disagree with Antifa’s politics but Jesus loves them and died for them.
    4. Jesus said: “If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple. And whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.” LUKE 14: 26,27 NIV
    5. Jesus said a greater love has no one than to lay down his life for his friend. Followers of Jesus are his friends. When we came to Jesus we had many thought and attitudes that did not match the teachings of Jesus, in fact Jesus just pointed out one of my sins this afternoon. Perhaps a member of Antifa that you want to kill was born from above just a week ago? Perhaps Jesus has not yet pointed out to him that violence is not the way? Do we want to chance killing a friend of Jesus?
    6. Why would we kill to preserve a temporary life of freedom and wealth of the United States, when by loving our enemies, perhaps some of them will come to know Jesus and experience the true wealth and freedom of living for Jesus today and in the future? Why would we deny members of Antifa the same grace and mercy we received?
    7. I have seen nothing in the teachings of Jesus or the early church leaders before Ambrose, that allow violence against our enemies.
    Where am I wrong?


    1. Hello, Jon. We have talked before, remember? You made the same points before as well. Is it not loving to protect an innocent person who is being attacked? God hates cowardice as well. It is not violent to protect someone. It is loving. Here is the post I wrote back when I talked with you regarding this very issue:

      I will always protect the defenseless, weak, and innocent, and that is both godly and loving. It’s not violent. The attacker is the violent one. Don’t let Antifa & BLM twist right and wrong, calling us violent when we defend ourselves against their violent attacks.

      I do pray for and love my enemies and at the same time, I will never let them hurt my family or anyone else. It’s about love, not violence. Hope that helps you see my perspective. I think men who won’t protect the weak are cowards. Paul was clear, love always protects, and God wants us to be strong and courageous.

      Grace and peace

      1. Have you ever read the story about how David Wilkerson reached Nicky Cruz? Maybe need to consider how we can reach Antifa people for Christ?


      2. I can reach them for Christ by loving them by speaking truth to them. I’ve preached to many Antifa people on Twitter, even through all their hatred and slander at me. Antifa or not, nobody is attacking me or my family like they attack people. If that ever happened, I can preach to them after I stop the threat.

        God bless


  5. I do not support any act of violence on any race because I only see people not color.I dont think the St. Louis couple who pulled their guns on the protestors were threatened by anyone,(I stand to be corrected). This white and black story must come to an end. I do not fear any white person nor do I fear anyone for that matter. We all must take a stand, because united we stand but divided we shall surely fall. I will continue to pray for this nation in Jesus name.


    1. I don’t support violence either. Defending yourself and protecting innocent people is not violent. The Saint Louis couple was most definitely threatened. The mob verbally threatened to kill them, their dog, and burn their house down. The media lies about the couple. The protesters were on private property and they were threatening them. They were not walking down a public sidewalk or street. They were on the couple’s private property. This isn’t about white versus black. This is about freedom versus socialist tyranny. BLM and Antifa are socialist insurrection armies bent on causing chaos and destruction in our country. We must stand up to them in truth and righteousness. I will always protect my family and my neighbors. Love always protects. Grace and peace.

      1. Morning my brother in Christ. I am just getting a chance to respond. I would never call you violent. It was a general statement for every situation in my opinion, no matter what. Thank you for clearing up the St. Louis couple topic. Now I understand why they did what they did.
        Also, I believe that as Christians we have to be different, even when the world is going crazy, we have take a different stand. If we choose the sword we will perish with it (Matt 26:52). Christ never defended himself and we must follow suit. If all of us begin to defend our self then the world is in even more trouble than necessary.
        Thank you for allowing me to voiced my opinion in love. God bless you and keep you as we continue to pray and stand for righteousness following the footsteps of Christ.
        Have a great day my brother.

      2. Thank you Sheila. I believe strongly in free speech and open honest discussion. I understand what you are saying about the sword. I just look at it as doing the right thing and protecting those I love. I love my family, my neighbors, & my country, so I will protect them. It’s just that simple.

        If it’s God’s will that I die by the sword as a soldier of righteousness, then may His will be done. Some of us have to go into the dark and fight the bad things to protect the weak and innocent from evil. Some of us may be struck down in the process, but that’s okay. Better me than you. I’m ready to die fighting for righteousness any day. Evil flourishes when good men do nothing. I’m not going to be one of the men who does nothing.

        By the way, I only mentioned “white people” in the post because they were specifically threatening to come into the suburbs and hurt white people on July 4th. All the hatred regarding race is awful. Like you, I see souls, not color. I was just making a point regarding their threats.

        I am praying for peace. Thanks for the conversation.

        Grace and peace
