Webinar #1 - Know Your Enemy
Now, to get started, above is the very first APC training webinar, featuring me and Massachusetts activist Dave Kopacz. The focus of this introductory session is “Know Your Enemy.” As I say in the session, “If you don’t know who you are fighting, then none of the information and tactics we can teach you will be successful.”
That’s why this first introductory webinar focuses on revealing many of the names and tactics of private, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and Planning groups which operate secretly in the background to influence and control your local elected representatives and appointed officials. Dave and I demonstrate how they create, influence, and fund policies that drastically grow the size of local government and reduce the ability of local citizens to be heard by their elected representatives. The main lesson here is that none of these policies are local. There is a national and international force behind nearly everything being implemented by your city council. To restore freedom, they must be exposed and stopped.
Too many local residents are not prepared to recognize the forces they are up against, and consequently, find themselves unable to effectively oppose them. Now, however, once you have been armed with the knowledge from this first training installment detailing how your community government has been usurped by these forces, the webinars to follow will serve to make you an effective and powerful Citizen Ninja, ready to lead the drive to organize and create your community into that vital “Freedom Pod” to protect private property, free enterprise, and freedom of personal choice in your life.
This is your chance to learn how to take a stand, effectively fight back, and restore our Republic.
HOW TO FIGHT BACK IN YOUR COMMUNITY
There is a determined force in the world dedicated to an agenda designed to “reorganize human society.” To achieve that agenda they are on a drive to change our American economic system, abolish private property, and change our system of representative government.
Most importantly, they have focused on making those changes primarily through control of government on the local and state levels. They have trained a cadre of activists to present and promote legislative programs that are backed by various funding programs to entice local representatives to enact their agenda. That’s why it’s at the local and state levels where we must make our stand to stop them.
The goal is to take a stand to promote and defend the three main principles of freedom including free enterprise, private property, and limited government intrusion in our lives. Specifically taking direct action in your own community, thereby establishing it as a pocket of freedom or a “Freedom Pod.” This becomes a shining example to then pass to the next community, and the next, creating a freedom movement. This manual is designed to provide the tools and training necessary to accomplish that goal.

Our country should always feel a great debt to people like Tom DeWeese and others, who literally make it their business to monitor what Washington is doing, where big government is taking us, and alerting us that "we the people" can still be in charge, if we're informed and active. Keep it up, Tom! - Pat Boone
I've read hundreds of political books over the years - and rank yours as one of the most eye-opening of all - but more than that, I think it is perhaps the most nuts and bolts (how to) solution-oriented book of this class I've ever read, placing it on a pedestal in the midst of a very small class of valuable books. - Steve Farrell, Founder, Self-Educated American
