Since taking interim command of the Michigan Militia I have heard from less than a dozen people claiming to be the commanders of their individual groups here in Michigan. This is great since I have no desire to take command of nor issue orders to any of these groups and my intent is only to increase membership and participation.

Most of these splinter group leaders claim that they have earned their rank through the normal process and have earned their leadership position (title) though a closed group vote and that they resent my having taken command yet none of them have made the claim that they are already the commander of the single state’s Militia.

What does this mean for the state’s Militia?… We don’t have one.

Lee Miracle says in a public press release, and I quote

“MR VISNER IS FREE TO FORM AND/OR JOIN ANY UNIT FOR WHICH IS HE QUALIFIED, AND WE WISH HIM WELL, SHOULD HE CHOOSE TO DO SO.” 

This is exactly what I have done.

The people of Michigan should take a good look at what the initial and prolonged response from the existing leadership has been with regard to myself and the effects these responses have had and continue to have on the perception of our state’s militia groups. Here is another quote.

“Mr. Visner,

Clearly you have no understanding or idea how the militias in Michigan work. You won’t be assuming command of anything. You’re already publicly humiliated. You’re going to be much moreso when we all band together to laugh in your face.

Phoenix
Commanding Officer/Coordinator
West Michigan Volunteer Militia/ Sentinel”

 

Is this the face and the spokes person of our state’s Militia?

The Michigan Militia has lacked state leadership for a great number of years and it appears as though the splinter groups are all fighting for popularity.

Our state’s Militia needs a statewide presence and this simply can not be left to the most popular unit commander and some perceived influence over all the others. I AM the interim commander and I WILL establish a true state Militia and I will ensure that the people of this state get to vote for it’s new state commander.

I am not a Dictator and I will not collect money for nor issue orders to any unit in Michigan during my command. When I am done however, every unit in Michigan will answer to and take orders from the State Militia Commander. Now ask yourself… What true Michigan patriot would be opposed to this type of statewide order within our Militia?

Currently Militia membership numbers are roughly 1/100th of one percent of Michigan’s Registered Voter population of 7.2 million.

As always, I am available by phone at (989) 954-2814
