THOUGHTS OF THE DAY 5/20

BATTLE STRATEGY HISTORY OF THE DAY: 

THE 47 RONIN

It is hard to believe that anyone in the PERSONAL PROTECTION business has not read the story of the Forty-Seven Ronin.  If you have not, set aside the five minutes and read it.  The LINK is below.

TIME UNTIL NEXT POTUS ELECTION:

902 Days, 9 Hours, 50 Minutes, 21 Seconds

QUOTE OF THE DAY: 

“The American people can be – and deserve to be – assured that actions taken in their defense are consistent with their values and laws.”

— Eric Holder, Attorney General of the United States, and it’s Top Law Enforcement Officer

This is another example of a government wanna-be stating one thing and doing another.  Holder does not follow through with what the American people have stated, asked for, and are deserving of.  He does what HE thinks HE should do.  He has consistently failed the American people and there is NOTHING in his past that would give confidence to the American people who this is going to change.  Grade F.

VIDEO OF THE DAY:

Great video of TWO idiots trying to make a training video on a move that obviously, is not very good.  In thirty years, I have never had someone grab my lapel.  It is hilarious and shows just how many CLOWNS there are out there in the world.  Do not take everything you see as credible just because it is on the internet.  I wanted to see the fight after they started, that’s where the video should have started.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY: 

http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304422704579571604060696532?mg=reno64-wsj&url=http%3A%2F%2Fonline.wsj.com%2Farticle%2FSB10001424052702304422704579571604060696532.html

On May 1, 2014, a Grand Jury in the Western District of Pennsylvania charged five members of the People’s Liberation Army of China with Conspiring to commit Computer Fraud and a number of other charges all showing that these guys and thousands more like them in China are stealing everything they can from U.S. Companies.  Eric Holder and the Justice Department come out and do the cursory statements that lead nowhere.  Nothing will be done to any one of these guys, and or their brethren.  The Justice Department clown will go back to his office, shut the door and work on making ILLEGALS legal in this country while much greater problems are allowed to continue hurting the U.S.

RULE OF THE DAY:

WHO IS A BODYGUARD IN THE ONE-PERCENTILE?

“You don’t understand. I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am, let’s face it. It was you, Charley.” Terry Malloy/Marlon Brando, On The Waterfront

An Agent in the One-Percentile in the Bodyguard profession is an individual who has worked at becoming the BEST at what he does through all phases of physicality, education, training, psychology, business, and life’s lessons.  They have not only achieved this Nirvana at a point in their professional lives, but continue to work, progress and achieve in order to maintain that privileged and honored position.

The requirements for acceptance as a One-Percenter, as well as the requirements and rules for maintaining that status are absolute.  You excel in all areas stated, but drop in one and your status may diminish to a five-percenter, ten-percenter or lower.  There comes a point where the Agent will not be suitable for Close Protection work in the private sector and will not be hired or contracted with again in that position.

This is the goal of any Protective Agent, to be in the top one percentile of this profession.  There is no test you take, there is no group or organization that will award you this title, if you hear of one let me know, I need new joke material.  The beauty and the tragedy of the protection business is the fact that if you are truly good at it, you will not be known by anyone outside of the business, it is like the old mobster guys, the ones that truly understood the BUSINESS, it wasn’t the fame stupid, it wasn’t getting your picture in the paper, or getting on CNN to vomit rhetoric about information you used to understand, no it’s about making a living, taking care of the family, honor, taking care of the client, and the guys you are working with.  There is a code of conduct that puts you in that one percent category, and it’s a code that no one person, or institution can declare you worthy of.  After all the work you do, the lessons you learn, the practice, the classes, the lost time with the family, ethics, and the myriad of other things you will learn about, it gets down to whether the guys you work with respect and admire the job you do.  It is as simple as that, RESPECT, and no one is selling it, YOU EARN IT!

From the book, I PROFESSIONAL, THE TOP 100 RULES FOR THE ONE PERCENTILE BODYGUARD BUSINESS, by Emiel Fisher, PI, PPS
