Here’s How Tim Kennedy Trains People To Be Impossible To Kill
“That means he's going to go down the street and throw more acid in the face of little girls. Yeah, I've been there. I killed that mother fucker, because we don't let that happen in our world. All of those little decisions lead up to that moment when you're going to live or die.”
These are the first words from a sweat-soaked Tim Kennedy in a new video about the Army Green Beret and former UFC fighter’s work with Sheepdog Response, a hybrid combat, firearms, and fitness training team. Their mission? To teach participants to be the hardest person anyone ever tries to kill.
Kennedy, the head instructor with Sheepdog Response, which conducts training events across the country, says their mission is to change the current culture in America. “Sheepdog response is the work of liberty, putting the teeth back in ‘we are the people,” Kennedy says. From tactical shooting, drilling on weapon’s handling, and speed reloading to martial arts, the guys over at Sheepdog Response argue, in no uncertain terms, that simply having the right tools isn’t the same as having the right technique, or mindset.
“We want to get trained, we want to get mature, responsible gun owners to understand that going to a store, buying a gun doesn't mean that you're ready for anything,” Marshall Lutton, a firearm instructor with Sheepdog Response, says in the video.
“There is no door to sheepdog, if you want to come to sheepdog anybody can come,” Kennedy says at the end. “I care that you get this information and that you use it. That you take this idea and you pass it on. That you take this idea of what it means to be free and be passionate about it.”

ANKARA (Reuters) - President Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday Turkey would press on with its offensive into northeastern Syria and "crush the heads of terrorists" if a deal with Washington on the withdrawal of Kurdish fighters from the area were not fully implemented.
Erdogan agreed on Thursday in talks with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence a five-day pause in the offensive to allow time for the Kurdish fighters to withdraw from a "safe zone" Turkey aims to establish in northeast Syria near the Turkish border.
President Trump stoked confusion Friday by declaring the U.S. has "secured the Oil" in the Middle East amid continued fallout from the Turkish invasion of northern Syria that he enabled by pulling American troops out of the region.
It wasn't immediately clear what the president was talking about, as there were no publicly known developments in Syria or elsewhere in the Middle East relating to oil. White House aides did not return requests for comment.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. State Department investigation of Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state has found no evidence of deliberate mishandling of classified information by department employees.
The investigation, the results of which were released on Friday by Republican U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley's office, centered on whether Clinton, who served as the top U.S. diplomat from 2009 to 2013, jeopardized classified information by using a private email server rather than a government one.
