Over the weekend, the political tensions that have ravaged our country over the last year came to a head in the form of violence in the streets in the historically liberal college town of Berkeley, California. Berkeley was the site of the famous free speech rallies of the 1960’s in protest of the Vietnam War, and more recently, violent riots erupted in response to famed alt-right speaker Milo Yionnopolous giving a speech at the notoriously left-leaning University of California Berkeley campus. Over the weekend, conservatives and Trump supporters had planned a Patriot Day Free Speech Rally, which was crashed by Antifa protesters, […]

Continued Threats of Riots   

Continued Threats of Riots  

  Maybe one day we will again have something resembling law-and-order here in America, but it certainly won’t come before Friday.  There have been online postings in dozens of cities that offer as much as $2,500 to anyone willing and able to disrupt the inauguration of president-elect Donald Trump this Friday.  Though the inauguration itself will take place in Washington D.C., the “disruptions” are not likely to be so localized.  As we saw, following the election, there were riots and violent attacks on perceived Trump supporters across the nation.  If you are living in areas that were affected by this […]

Personal Safety In Riot Situations (Video)

OK, maybe I’m being a little paranoid for posting more about that, but the anti-Trump protests are turning into riots in some major urban areas. Hopefully, they will die out over time, but I don’t think we can be too prepared, especially if you live in a major city like San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, LA, Chicago or New York. I’ve always had a bit of a bone to pick with violent protestors because most of the people who end up suffering from their violent agression are not the people who the rioters are angry with, and opportunistic young people tend […]

How to Prepare for Martial Law

Talks of the possibility of martial law get more and more popular each year, and whether or not it is going to happen, given the drastic effect it will have on civilian life in the United States it’s certainly a scenario worth anticipating and preparing for. What is martial law? Martial law is when regular laws are suspended and replaced by military law. The military temporarily takes over the government and curfews are imposed. It usually happens in the event of a massive disaster, enemy invasion or wide-scale civil unrest. What can you do?  In many ways, there’s only so […]

Protecting Yourself During Civil Unrest

Protecting Yourself During Civil Unrest

As recent events have taught anyone paying attention, natural disasters are not the only thing one needs to prepare for when considering survival.  If you are living in an urban area you could easily find yourself in a riot and complete lawlessness.  This could leave you without power and water in your home, and in danger if you chose to leave your home for basic supplies for everyday life (not to mention, even if you make to Walgreen’s, it might be on fire already). So as always one should have a supply of canned foods or freeze dried foods, water […]
