    Next-Generation Flash Mobs: The Breakdown of Law & Order

    chicago-flash-mob

    As local police departments cut personnel due to excessive spending and budgetary restrictions, cities all across America are rapidly degenerating into gang infested war zones.

    In the city of Chicago, which has been one of the hardest hit during the opening stages of a greater depression sweeping the country, law enforcement officials compared the situation on the ground to the kind of tribal warfare one might see in places like Iraq. With law and order breaking down, residents of the city have been caught in the middle. The crime wave has gotten so bad, in fact, that earlier this year the Chicago PD announced a new response plan, or rather, a NON-response plan, wherein police will not even show up at crime scenes unless someone has been critically injured or the perpetrator is still on the scene.

    This, of course, has been a boon for criminals looking to take advantage of the situation. And earlier this week they did just that.

    Unbelievable surveillance video captured flash mobs dashing into store after store and running out with armloads and sometimes entire racks of sporting goods.

    It’s like a next-generation flash mob. Originally, flash mob referred to a group of people doing a performance to draw attention to something in a positive way. The term gave way to a more sinister motive.

    “They used to just be fun. They used to just be positive and now, I don’t know, it seems to have turned into something negative,” said one shopper.

    No one was hurt in the three incidents, though it’s clear the mob stops for no one.

    Some city officials in Chicago have even appealed to the state and federal government for help, recently calling for martial law to be declared and for the military to intervene.

    This is the state of affairs in the U.S., and the organized crime waves are spreading.

    Residents in suburbs of Oakland and Houston have been forced to hire private security teams to help maintain law and order in their neighborhoods, while millions of Americans across the country are arming up in those jurisdictions that allow firearms ownership.

    Chicago, it seems, is an example of what happens when law and order breaks down and residents have no way of protecting themselves because of restrictive gun laws.

    A look at the surveillance footage above shows how indiscriminately a large mob of individuals behaves. As Tess Pennington notes in her preparedness series on Flash Mobs, if you ever encounter a flash mob threat, remember who you are dealing with:

    For the most part the participants of these mobs are urban delinquents whose only goal is to steal and cause violence.

    The recent events in Chicago involve teens and young adults looking to steal apparel.

    What happens when these groups finally realize they can get a lot more than that?

    It’s only a matter of time before the contagion spreads to more serious criminal elements that will target individuals directly in the form of flash mob robberies in places like subway cars, banks, or jewelry stores. And as their efforts go unchecked by police, they will likely increase in scope and violence.

    In 2011, a large flash mob targeted patrons of the Wisconsin State Fair. Witnesses report that the racially motivated mob involving hundreds of individuals was, “attacking everybody for no reason whatsoever.” Most of the victims were white.

    We’ve already seen how quickly these mobs works and how violent they can be. Once it starts it can’t be stopped.

    Now imagine what it will look like when these people can no longer afford to purchase basic essentials like food.

              This article actually provides the motive TPTB are allowing these things to happen. City officals(elected of course) are calling for “martial law” which is music to TPTB/gov’t progressives. Same will happen with the borders.

                During and after TRUE SHTF there will be a lull before the masses have figured out what has happpened. This is the time for preppers/survivalists to ACT, before the tsunami of people flood the stores. Unless you have an enormous amount of supplies, you can ALWAYS use a little more before the hell begins. I have suggested before perishables to purchase because you can use these FIRST, and then wait to dip into your other long term survival supplies. Also additional fuel and ammunition is essentail. You can keep empty five gallon plastic gas containers if you don’t want to store a lot of gas before this happens. Probably the gas stations will still be open during the first minutes or hours while everyone else is digesting the shcok of a mega SHTF. That is as long as an EMP hasn’t take out everything electrical. The empty gas containers can be used for other purposes if you can’t fill them with fuel.

                The one reason each month I try to warn people about an Israeli strike on Iran within the 10 day window of a new moon is exactly for the reason of no one being caught off guard and waiting to get extra survival supplies before the masses have loss their panic and be stunned. When you hear of a mega or even a moderate SHTF event, ACT. Every minute wasted in awe is another minute that you could have obtained an extra something that you will need. In the case it is too dangerous to go outside, then that extra time before the masses start the stampede can be used to secure what you have and hit you and your family into high gear. You may even have to bug out suddenly to somewhere safer. People for example can get to safety before a super volcano goes off IF they act before the roads have become too crowded to move. Volcanoes have warning peridos before they blow. There are countless other time is crucial to getting out diasters.

                The worst thing anyone could possibly do WHEN a TRUE SHTF hits to be like a deer with the oncoming headlights. Some events can knock you back in disbelief and you say to yourself HOLY F’EN SH$%, but that period of shock should last only so long before the motor is put into drive and you go before everyone else. This is the advantage of a prepper/survivalist :), and an excellent advantage at that :), to be ready to act at a moment’s notice anytime 24 hours.

                  And this why we carry 24 7. My child even had to take my faithful little back up from me in the hospital stay I had. I was drugged so no fight from me.

                  Point is always carry. If not tell me your system of knowing that nothing is going to happen that day or time when you are not carrying.

                  I may have to go in front of a federal maderrate to get my drone back. And my drucken stowaway flight to japan may be coming back to haunt me. Might be a fun next couple of days.

                  Added know all the repair guys I talk about that were still in Jordan rotated out for a rest. I don’t know the new guys as well but I still wish them luck.
                  Found out many are watching SHIF. Even on there satilite mobile something what ever they are called. Make what I use when I was a repairman looklike a can with string. They cant post traceable I’m told but there no review of what they read.

                  I understand your thinking but as for me and my own , as soon as the flag goes up I say it’s to late to make one last run…those last runs may just have you finding yourself in the middle of a gun battle or road blocks and fema one way bus trips or even if you are only sent back the way you came if you can not get back home was it really worth a few more cans of spaghetti-o’s? I will be happier if we all can get home and watch it happen on the tv than be in the middle of it, even if it would be tempting to go get a few last stocks.

                  Prepping note:-

                  Teach your kids to recognise that “calm before the storm” to slip out of class and home/to a trusted adult BEFORE their peers are put on a bus to ……….

                  My own kid has ASD, so I had to face the painful recognition that although he’s an escapologist of the highest order, he might not spot the signs of an unfolding disaster in time. It was a key factor behind my choice to homeschool, as I just wasn’t prepared to risk him.

                  ALWAYS have a get home bag in your desk/car at work, ladies a pair of flatties could save your life. Again I know I can be a bit slow on the uptake and worried that I’d waste valuable time trying to convince co-workers I like to get out of dodge. Hence my choice to derive my income other than via an office job.

                  I do understand this is not an option for everyone due to the economy. This is NOT the time to be deriving your monthly salary via a 2 hour each way commute if you can possibly help it.

                  If you have the choice work locally, or within walking distance of home – even if it means a drop in income. we are at the point where the loss of salary may be substituted by the extra time tending your food garden.

                  This is especially important if like me, you are a lone parent with few if any adults you could rely on to save your child in the event of a true crisis. (hint even your own sibling will preserve their OWN child’s life ahead of yours in a true emergency – to think otherwise is plain stupid).

                  If that is the case for you then for heavens sake – PLAN for traffic jams/public transport shut downs. A bicycle is a humble appliance that can go through alleys/over rough terrain that that fancy SUV can’t. I got home on 7/7 via river transport as London public transport was totally shut down on roads and rail.

                  When SHTF hits your neighbourhood, Murphy’s law guarantees it won’t be on a weekend, but is more likely to happen in the middle of a rush hour etc.

                  Getting your precious loved ones home and safe should be your top priority, only then should you worry about acquiring “stuff”. Second should be ensuring you’ve filled the bath tub, all those empty pop bottles with fresh drinking water, third make your home secure. Only after those three should you consider venturing out to get additional last minute prepping items (though intelligent adults may pick up the odd item or two on the way home lol!).

                  The BEST warning system I’ve seen for natural disasters (& a few manmade ones) is to learn to watch the animal and bird life. If EVERY four legged critter in your vicinity suddenly makes for high ground and the birds fly in the same direction – take the hint.

                  BI, once again, you’re on target. My prepping is continuing all the way until SHTF hits and possibly beyond that point as long as I can get what’s most important before the hordes hit the stores. I’m still somewhat apprehensive about Grid Ex next week on the 13th and 14th. I’m doing a LOT of prep of shopping this weekend. If Grid Ex passes without anything happening, so much the better. After stores have been cleaned out, I expect mobs will go into residential areas to see what they can take by force. When they come into my neighborhood, that’s when I expect one of my worst nightmares to happen; that I’ll have to use deadly force to protect me and mine. I DON’T want it to happen at all! But I know that it CAN and most likely WILL. I’m prepared for that. Whenever TSHTF, I just hope I can keep a cool head and put my survival plan into action.

                  I’m guessing you’ll be doing the same as I (saving time by panicking early!!) Whats the worst that can happen, some extra perishable food and fuel to use up over the coming days/weeks if it all settles down. Sound slike a no brainer to me!

                  Sounds good BI. I’ve divided up my “actions on” plan in the event of something happening, into 2 categories taking into consideration, my geographical location at the time.
                  Natural disaster – actions on … Wait in place till event is over and physically safe to move before moving to my pre planned position, assuming I didn’t get there before hand.
                  Martial Law – actions on ….. Drop everything and move straight to high ground with what I have on me. Watch and observe. Avoid all roads and move to my bug out location. This also applies to my bug out location. If I’m there already, I’ll move to my pre-planned position on high ground to watch and observe my bug out location for a few days to ensure that my position hasn’t been compromised during my prepping phase.

                  I know, sounds a little anal, but I don’t care what anyone thinks, because I’ve planned.
                  In my opinion, once the SHTF it’s too late. Any ‘lull’ before it sinks into the general populations brains and they realise somethings happened, should be used for those who are prepped to get to safety. Not do any last minute shopping. The lull is your safe window of opportunity to get to safety, so forget getting the extra couple gallons.

                  I’d also suggest that anyone who is prepped, to use the first several weeks to stay low. No noise and avoid movement. Forget using your generators for anything. Sound travels, so if the grid goes down people are going to hear you and realise that you’ve probably got everything they want, which compromises your position and puts you in danger. Same with lights. If your on solar, fine, but ensure no one can see your lights at night. Anyone travelling around at night in a black out situation and see’s your place lit up like a Christmas tree is going to be attracted like a bug to a light. And when people get desperate, they get smart. People will learn very quickly how to overrun your position to get your preps.
                  Forget being all Gung Ho and say that it won’t happen to you, because you don’t know how quickly deseperate people can organize themselves into an effective fighting force. Remember that even the unprepared have a will to survive.

                  My personal frontline protection is a knife and hunting bow. I have a side arm and 308 too, but my best protection is to avoid contact, avoid noise, stay up on the high ground and dominate my AO (area of operation) by conducting low profile patrols.

                  Oh and last but not least. When it hits the fan, my phones going over a cliff somewhere as far away from me as I can. No traceables like phones and computers in my loc.

                  Father of ADHD Admitted in Final Interview That Disease Was “Fictitious” 05/25/13 I’m now 62 and when I went to school the classes were 30 -40 kids. There was NO ADHD. This is a modern disorder probably caused by several factors. I believe that the major factor is the breakdown of the family with no family unit. The children grow up different without both parents and with them divorced. Plus, TV, junk food and rock music and all the nonsense being taught to the kids add to the problem.
                  The modern American culture breeds ADHD in kids. We home schooled our four children, and they all grew up fine without any learning disabilities. These disabilities did not exist just 50 years ago.
                  “ADHD is a prime example of a fictitious disease.” These were the words of Leon Eisenberg, the “scientific father of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder),” in his last interview before his death.”
                  Do what I did with my son. Just slowly reduce the dosage until you have him off of it for good. Don’t continue to stunt his natural ability to act and think on his feet, and/or stump his emotional growth.

                  For that matter, living a life of preparedness is the best thing anyway; don’t allow yourself to be caught off guard. With a family, that’s always been my way of thinking.

                  I say this for the GOOD of ANY/ALL that will hear!!!

                  The Gov’t has been steadily Prepping themselves (FEMA/Homeland Security Bullet Purchase Orders etc) for THE SHTF event (Solar Flare, Yellowstone Eruption, EMP/Major Terrorist Attack, Economic Collapse, Etc) that they KNOW is on the Horizon. Many think the “ATTACK” itself (or what’s coming) is Pre-Planned/By design. I am SURE this is NOT the case -BUT that WHAT is coming is a G-D event. If right (that America is Babylon), then it behooves ONE to know/understand the Prophecies concerning HER destruction!!! It would appear (from scripture) that she (Babylon) finds herself in an extreme state of distress (ie – by one or more events listed above) – which turns the country on its head with Extreme Civil Dischord, Infighting, Riots, Marshal Law and the like… at some Point after the Dischord Begins, Her Enemies will Sneak Up and BLOW HER OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH with a Ballistic Missile/Nuclear Attack straight out of Hell!!!

                  One of the afore mentioned events will bring Civil Dischord and Martial Law. It seems that there will be a Clear Reference Point (Such as the Declaration of Martial Law) thats begins a Prophetic Clock Countdown (Of 2 Years – give or take a week) to the G-D wrought ATTACK (Prob. by Russia, China, Iran Coalition). The “TWO YEAR” period; from the “Declaration of Martial Law to Attack” is an Understanding from the Words of Jeremiah 51:45-48

                  It is my personal belief, again from Exhaustive Research, that America IS the End Time Babylon and that HER FALL/DESTRUCTION begins the time of Tribulation. It behooves ONE TO UNDERSTAND/KNOW the Prophesies Concerning Her destruction because, if correct – when the SHTF – YOU’ll have a 2 year window to GET THE H3LL out of Dodge!!! That’s when you leave!!! One also needs to know/understand that HER Destuction is the Work/Will of G-d!!! There WILL be NO Surviving or Saving the Place… only a small window to LEAVE!!!

I’ll go down defending my wife and while not looking forward to it, I’m okay with it. Just want the satisfaction of seeing the suprise on his face when he goes down with me.

                  “””Witnesses report that the racially motivated mob involving hundreds of individuals was, “attacking everybody for no reason whatsoever.” Most of the victims were white.”””

                  You can’t be racially motivated UNLESS you are a racist. But blacks can’t be racist, can they? At least that’s what the MSM keeps saying.

                  In the end all it will take to stop a “flash mob” is a few flashes from the barrel of a few guns. The MO proves they are gutless and will run at the first sign of a personal threat to their safety.

                Fire & flooding are my two greatest worries. As a young child my playmates were ANC refugees, as an adult one of my closet friends a Somali widow. I do NOT want to experience “life on the road” as it is an extremely harsh way of life, and many do not survive it.

                I’d really appreciate an article on how to protect your home from fire and floods. It’s important to remember, especially in the case of fire that it only takes one idiot down the lane to knock over a Kerosene lamp, or fail to stub out a cigarette to create hell on earth. Likewise if anyone thinks these flash mob animals will burn what they cannot steal, then they haven’t researched what happened to the farmers of Vienna after the war, or remembered the lessons of WACO & the Zimbabwean & Argentine farmers.

                  I read a story about an old retired Marine (Army?) guy who lived on top of a hill in Kalifornia. He had a swimming pool on his property he kept full all year round. The old guy bought gasoline powered water pumps and once a month connected the pump to his pool and pumped water to a hose system that ran to the roof of his house. On his roof he had mounted several heavy duty water sprinklers. Once a month his neighbors got to watch him fire up the pumps and turn on the sprinklers which thoroughly coated his house with water. His neighbors laughed at him & called him names. They stopped laughing at him when his house was the only house to survive a forest fire with no damage at all. That old guy was what we would today call a prepper.

                  llm,
                  In the western US and some parts of Canada, roof sprinkler systems are popular. That’s mainly due to the threat of wild-fires, but Rawles has suggested that preppers get them if they can afford them, against the day that the “animals” begin fire-bombing houses.
                  For the shell of the house, I know of nothing that can be applied to the outside. Nothing that a suburban HOA would allow, anyway. But you can spray the structure in the attic with fireproof coatings.

                  LLM: We have both worries. We have conversed amongst ourselves quite a bit regarding exactly that….forests and more forests with LOTS of dead growth. Quite a worry for us, like there isn’t enough to worry about already, although the deer that visit our oak trees are “food” for thought.

                  AND although we are elevated, we are very thankful that our area is not very earthquake prone as that large natural lake 2 blocks from us would make quite a slosh on the upstroke.

            Oathkeeper an excellent way to terminate the problem yoofs involved! Lets say someone doing as you suggest got 30 yoofs. Now if we multiply 30 yoofs by 4 head of bastard ghetto children sired = 120 x $637.00 per month per child SSI check = $76,440.00 per month just in SSI for bastard ghetto children, saved! $917,280.00 per year the hard working taxpayer doesnt have to pay for.
            (This estimate doesnt include, EBT,WELFARE, SECTION 8 HOUSING, MEDICADE,HEAD START PROGRAMS……..).
            Why such an action as you described could save tax payers
            a billion dollars over 20 or 30 years.

            Billy Idol, I believe you are right. Notice it is “mobs” who do these things, rarely individuals. They draw “courage” from each other – or drugs or a bottle. A half dozen dirtbags charging your house would run like rabbits (at least those that are left would) after you take down the first 2 or 3 with your “streetsweeper” full of OO buck.

            Personally I would be far more concerned with a single, or at most a pair, of guys sneaking quietly around my home, using cover and being silent and committed. So glad I have a very good thermal imager and night vision optics ……

                And you don’t even need to kill them to take the wind out of them with a shotgun loaded with buckshot, even #4 Buck or turkey shot if that’s what you have on hand. Aim at the ground at a nice flat angle in front of them, skip the pellets right into their legs. Odds are you will also hit more than one of them with each shot, too.

                Canadian Armed Forces have a similar use for the frangible rounds for the 25mm canons mounted on our armoured vehicles.

Not all of course but the problems is that the bad ones get caught, go to prison, are released early with better training and more hate and just go back to doing what they did before they got caught. Just better criminals and more violent. You white people are just shocked because you are just now getting what we have been getting for a century.

They resent blacks who have succeeded in life; so, they form roving gangs and rob them; and, in many cases, kill as well. The biggest cases in point: A high school or college student wearing expensive sneakers or jacket will be targeted by the very thugs you mention; is not only robbed of those items, but killed, to boot.

          A suggestion to the American people for when the Obamas leave the WH. Count the cutlery, do an inventory of the priceless art works, carpets, furniture…

          However, being a white man, and naturally fair minded, I have to admit, the Mulrooneys, when Brian left the PMs office, also tried taking off with furniture which Mila had fallen in love with. I think the Clintons have been accused of a similar attempt at theft of public property. In the case of those supposed ‘white’ folks, you must understand, Hilary is Jewish, Bill is a pervert, Brian is a pervert, and guess what Mila is. Judging from both his and her close ties to the Kanadian Jewish infestation, they are no different than those Clinton creatures. It is not white people who are causing all of the problems, including the stirring up of black people who the Khazars have manipulated into believing that they are entitled to other peoples’ property because their ancestors were slaves, doncha know. Note that whenever SHTF, blacks feel compelled to loot. Other people don’t feel so compelled.

          No, it is not white people who are the enemy; it is the Khazars; who look like white people but are in fact an alien infestation hell bent on the demise of everyone but them; including black folks; good or bad.

        These are going to be the losers that will be invading the rural country once they’ve stripped the cities of all that they can get. That is, if they survive the chaos. These are going to be the people who think they can run into the country and flash mob their way into people’s preps, homes, what have you. This really worries me. I have seen people online say they are not going to prep, but just come for what you have and I believe them.

        We are planning to bug IN, but whose to say these zombies won’t try burning you out of your house? There’s a lot I am thinking about.

          Kanada is a land of ice and snow this time of the year. It certainly is the case outside my window. Over the last few decades the GOVERNMENT OF CANADA Corp. has been importing blacks by the boat load and in many cases giving them all kinds of assistance which white folks don’t see much of, even if they are reduced to living in their cars. In winter, these very black folks look even more out of place and totally bewildered having just come from a stone aged existence in Africa; where it is warm and the UN sends you stuff. Now they are in a truly white place, however, many of the white people living here are not really alive anymore; as in beings who can think for themselves, are not afraid to braid a noose, and are willing to stand up to the sophistry of multi culturalism creating a Tower of Babel in Kanada. So, very few people question this recreation of Africa in the frozen north. And, when I have raised concerns, based on Edgar Steele’s excellent book, Defensive Racism, white folks have come out in strong defense of blacks and are in fact outraged there is even a suggestion most of that race are mentally challenged and consistently score far below whites on IQ exams, whether the exam is made up by blacks or whites, yellows, or reds, it matters not. In NORAM, the black scores, on average in the 85% ile range. In Africa the difference is greater. On average blacks score in the 75th% ile range. If you score 75 % on an IQ exam; the mean being 100, you are actually ‘learning deficient’ something we used to call, ‘mentally retarded.’

          The great Albert Sweitzer, who ministered to black people in Africa for most of his medical career admitted that the worst thing white people can do with regard to the black is to give the black the idea he is equal to the white man, which just is not so and has been proven to be not so over millennia. That is not to say black people should be treated poorly. Why would you treat your prize race horse badly? Remember, the nonsense about black slavery in the 18 and 19th centuries in the JewSSSS A, is mostly nonsense. A healthy, strong male slave cost 1500 or more dollars; in equivalent value that would be in the tens of thousands. One calculation put the number at over two million dollars today. And, besides, slavery was counter productive to white people; it put whites out of work, and work was performed much slower. According to research I have come across, more black farmers owned black slaves than white farmers in the JewSSSA in the 19th century, when a war was waged ostensibly over slavery; which btw was not introduced into the equation until the north was losing the war in 1865. The war between the states was not about slavery; it was another banker’s war. Just another great holocaust of Gentiles at the behest of Jews.

          You don’t ever want to mess with a trucker. Ever. I did a stint trucking and it was a real education. It’s not that they’re bigger or stronger than anybody else, although some of them are. It’s not that they’re meaner than junkyard dogs, though there are some of them too. It’s not that they’re better armed, though a lot of them are.

          It’s that they don’t hesitate do what WORKS. That’s how they survive. And, of course, part of what works best in a lot of general situations is to be bigger, stronger, meaner and better-armed than others. Especially when you’re trying to get a night’s sleep in places like Cleveland or Detroit or Waco or Kansas City.

            Been outside Houston for 16 years. When we moved here in 1997 it was “out in the country”.
            Now the urban flight has caused all the “cityfied” people to move out to he country…& they want to cut down all the trees & build shopping malls & housing plans. We moved out here to get away from all that . I’m fine with the fact the the closest Wally World is 15 miles away. We will be bugging in on our 10 acres….& will do our best to hold ‘em off. Would like to find other preppers in the area. Being 50 miles from Houston is probably not far enough….but it is what it is. We are still in the 5th wheel trailer we purchased after the house fire last year. Trying to get started on building a new home on the property…& fighting the insurance battle. They don’t believe me when I list cases of can food & such that we had stored up over a couple of years. Also a lot of questions on all the ammo, guns, reloading equipment..etc. I don’t know that we will ever get back to where we were before the fire….but we try to do a little every week. Drive around Houston every day for work….put on about 1000 miles a week. The traffic seems worse every day, & crime is is increasing. We had the 10th armored car robery this year…just a week or so back. Keep your carry piece close Okie ! The Beatles were right…..Happiness is a warm Gun !

Most of their victims are other black people. you’d be surprised how little black-on-white crime there is overall in the US, although it has been increasing since 2008. Google FBI Uniform Crime Report going back to 2008 and also a report put out by USDOJ’s Bureau of Justice Statistics. Very interesting reading and they are both OFFICIAL US GOVERNMENT STUDIES.

              I know its not poltically correct. However the hard fact is if all the black folks disappeared from the planet the whites would have fewer problems. If the whites all disappeared the blacks would have as many and probably more problems. A good example of what blacks can accomplish without oppression from whitey is Haiti. Those Haitians only invented one thing The Hatian necktie. The only thing their good at is producing more Haitians. Only a denialist thinks when this all collapses the races will get along. This will become civil war Race War & ethnic cleansing. Having stated this the fact is a good man is a good man no matter what his race. A persons soul doesn’t have any color. I know of some black neighbors. Very good hard working productive folks. Their kids left the area and went to the big city. Next thing you know the grandchildren came to stay with the grand parents. Juvinile delinquent teens. No good thieves with the entitled nigger additude. After they gang raped a white girl. and the Law wasn’t doing anything to the juviniles. Grandmaw & grandpaw where burnt out. got a new house trailer and it burnt. They finally got the message and sent the grandkids back to live among their own kind. The two fires financially ruined the grandparents. they had to take on debt. The lender forclosed and auctioned off the property. Their gone from this area. Shure Im a racist so what?

          Yes that’s true; there are a lot of colours in a trash heap. In this discussion we are talking about a trash heap represented by a flash mob, where a variety of colours appear: Indigo, dark brown, brown, light brown, and pale brown. And, in places where the light was dim; it was hard to tell what colour they were because you can’t see them in the dark, but, given the propensity of brown and dark brown colours in this heap, I would suspect that those in the shadows are of similar colours.

            Actually, Emmanuel, you have to read a book written by an ancient Chinese warrior-philosopher who lived around the late 200′s BC by the name of Sun Tsu entitled THE ART OF WAR to find that very same quote. Another quote he made was “Know your enemy”. That book has since been translated into several languages, including English.

            As far as choosing one’s battles, the great Carthaginian general, Hannibal, was a master at that strategy. When he was winning, he was very patient; and, he chose both the time and place in which to engage the Roman Legions in battle. Yes, Emmanuel, choosing your battle(s) is the best strategy; but, that requires patience.

I remember reading a story about a auto repo guy coming to a home after dark and grabbing the homeowners car. As he was pullin’ out of the driveway, the owner came storming out with his hunting rifle banging off a number of shots as the repo guy tore off down the road, killing him. In court, the guy was exonerated as it is against Texas law to take or steal property in the night-time. It’s why the US military fired a rocket (documented on Steve Quayle website) into that fertilizer plant fire.

        This escalated since Eric Holder said that he won’t prosecute “my people.” Notice how many colors of people have gotten away with crimes, particularly within the administration. It’s not a skin color- his people are the children of lawlessness no matter what they look like on the outside. Those who wish to see the law upheld yet run afoul of it? Those are the ones at whom the book is thrown, no matter the color of skin. If you want proof of the later, look up how many black people have lost their jobs because they have said the wrong thing to someone about SSM. I rest my case. Evil has a foothold in government and lesser evils are encouraged by it.

          We’ve got a similar problem in Ontario and New Brunswick with the Natives. Since a Mohawk named Dudley George got his due at the hands of a police sharpshooter, the policy has become to “not antagonize the Natives”.

          That means that in the Caledonia area, Indians are free to block roads, vandalize white peoples’ properties, enforce illegal tolls, open fire on police officers’ homes and beat White people within an inch of their lives with no repercussions. However, when White folks band up and stage their own peaceful counter-protest, they are ordered to disband and the ringleaders are arrested.

          When they started arming CBSA agents at our border crossings, the Natives blockaded bridges and railroads and threatened a great deal of violence if their terms weren’t met. Eventually they got bored but instead of the heavy response the government deployed in Oka in the early 90′s, NOTHING was done. Honestly, I would have loved to see them try to face down Afghanistan veterans instead of troops whose idea of a deployment was a UN tour in Bosnia.

      Anyone out there see Hurricane Haiyan that is going to hit the Philippines? This sucker has sustained winds of 195 MPH. Using the measure of Hurricanes, the Saffir-Simpson scale, with 131-155 mph winds for a Category 4, and using the same scale for Category 5 would be 156-180 mph, and then 181-205 mph for a category 6, this monster is a category 6 hurricane. They just say anything above 155 is a category 5, but using the same scale you can see what a super hurricane this is. I wish they had a pressure reading, it must be around 26 inches of mercury or about 875-880 mb. This is a killer and thankfully it is going through less populated areas, but still anyone in the path of this better be underground because this thing is like a EF-4 to EF-5 tornado that just keeps going in a much larger area.

        I saw 862 mb in the comments to one of the weather blogs, top wind of 195 mph, and reported gusts past 270 mph.

        I could only find one weather site with any pressure readings, and they had 999 down the whole column of readings, meaning they had nothing.

          @ Archivist. If that 862 mb is correct that is approaching a world record for the low pressure ever recorded. I think that lowest is around 858 or 859 mb. If this is the case the sustained winds would more likely be in 220 to 225 mph range. That would be an ultimate nightmare for anything like this to hit any populated area. That would be a category 7 hurricane. I am still think it is in the mid to high 870 range. Just think if and when something like that hits the Gulf Coast. Hurricane Wilma at one point was in this range years ago.

        @e Informed…makes ya wonder what the effect is gonna be on the Fukushima nuke plant, which is now acknowledged as the greatest disaster to hit mankind. According to various YouTube vids it’s contaminating 300 tons of Pacific ocean water daily; there’s radioactive steam belching from the reactor after breaching the containment vessel and getting into the water table; and there’s fuel rods to be moved which contain the explosive power of 14,000 Hiroshima and Nagasaki A-bombs. All of this is being virtually ignored by the US mainstream media. A friend of mine who is a doctor and has been following this on the Steve Quayle blog, has advised getting a hold on a store of potassium iodine to combat potential radiation poisoning even here on the east coast.

You can’t get them to do anything. they’re so lazy and shiftless. IT WAS ALSO A STINKING HAITIAN, DRUNK BEHIND THE WHEEL OF AN OLD CADILLAC, WHO RAN OVER MY WIFE AND KILLED HER CROSSING THE STREET FROM THE HOSPITAL TO THE EMPLOYEE PARKING LOT. Six months after I buried her, the Haitian bastard got his due. he was struck dead on by another drunk driver, another Haitian no less. Poetic justice, you might say. No, I’ve never had any use for Haitians and never will. red thumb me, call me racist, I don’t care. that’s my perspective on Haitians and I’m NOT apologizing to anyone for it.

              I pulled the cable through the conduit myself, other than the ditch, I let the electrician hook it all up. For the money, it’s worth hiring it out and getting it done right. I can do basic wiring, add a circuit, that kind of stuff, but the generator hookup is not something I am going to try. If not done right, you energize the power lines and hurt repairmen.

        A gallon of propane will give you about 40 amps @ 110V for one hour.

        Here is the ballpark way to work it out.

        Propane has 91,000 BTUs / Gallon
        Engine/generator is 15% thermally efficient
        1 KW = 1000 watts = 3413 BTUs

        91,000 BTUs x .15 = 13650 BTUs in electrical output

        13650 divided by 3413 = 4 KW = roughly 40 amps @ 110v

        You will need to change the oil in the engine every 50-75 hours so plan accordingly.

        Hope this is useful

        I had a business trip about ten years ago in Camden, N.J. Little did I know of what I was getting into. I saw burned out and stripped cars on the streets in downtown Camden with blacks all hanging out in large groups on the streets. I had to get gas the second day in the city and the gas station I pulled into had a ten foot high fence with barb wire on top around the entire station. I had to wait for the attendant to open the gate (electric, controlled from inside the building). I drove in, the gate closed behind me and I was the only one in the lot. The attendant was inside the “store” which was bullet proof and no one could enter the store. If you wanted something you had to ask for it and pay for it first through a rotating glass bulletproof carousel. I fueled the car and left. I learned quickly that at the time I was there Camden N.J. was the number one city in the U.S. for crime. If I had known that in advance I would never have gone there.

          When I was younger I had a lot of friends. Now I just have “guys” I work with. A few neighbors I talk to but no one I could really call to depend on. If you want to find out who’s a friend, ask them to help you move. When we bought our house and had to move out of state; only one guy helped me load up and my wife,brother,Dad, Mom helped me unpack.

          I was kind of a bad kid and into a lot of stuff I’m not proud of. When I got my stuff together and became a man; none of them wanted to have anything to do with me…. Not that it’s a bad thing. “if you can’t change the people around you; change the people around you”

          I’m afraid it will be me, the wife, and our 135lb attack dog when SHTF. GOD is all I need because people tend to fail at the time when you need them most. I wouldn’t be suprised to hear stories of preppers being sold out by people on their so called “teams” Its human nature.

            Definitely sink the money into a good press, they aren’t getting any cheaper. If you shoot a lot, you’ll be able to afford to shoot more.

            Get a progressive press if you are going to load more than a hundred rounds a month. You’ll be glad you did and won’t spend the money twice.

      I’ve installed some security cams professionally for a bit. And the prices are coming down to boot. A few more cams that get close up face shots are an easy deterent.

      Still. In an economc decline. The deterents are going to become less effective. At some point the businesses are going to shut their doors as the losses mount. Martial law isn’t going to help the situation.

      Sadly, the vermin will drift on to new homes/locations and targets.

        This made me laugh. 10 years? You have to be kidding us.

        We’re lucky if we have 2 years. 17 Trillion in debt and over 80% of the jobs being created are part time. About $1 Trillion a year in over spending.

        We’re at the point where the Federal Reserve is about the only one buying our Treasuries. Coming soon, hyperinflation.

      The news media keep calling them flash mobs so that they don’t have to call them what they really are, black street gangs. I wish everyone would refer to them as such. Even when there is rioting and looting after a major sporting event, the MSM says “sport fans” rioting. Wrong. It was black street criminals again. I am somewhat amused when the MSM refers to them as “urban youths”. “If only they had something else to do they wouldn’t engage in looting and killing”. Wrong. If only they would rob and kill news people. Someday soon, perhaps.

      You know, I have been checking out this site for a while. Learned some things and enjoyed it; really helpful in getting me to the next levels of prepping. Then recently I have noticed the racist posts. Thought that this was a prepper website, not a recruitment forum for hate groups. I am really going to have to ramp it up if I am going to survive post reset with this racist bunch. Thanks for the memories SHTF.

          No, MF. The point is the color was pointed out (as if we couldn’t figure it out) as well as the fact they are thugs. Just say they are trash. And as for my “lack” of inner city life experience, believe me brother, I have seen and see it all the time living here is Los Angeles. Been through the riots. And yes it was people of color mostly taking and burning in their part of town (stupidly). However, first and foremost, they were opportunistic parasites. Color has nothing to do with it. I came to this site to learn to prep in case of disaster and to protect my family against any and all who would try to injure mine. I thought I would be welcomed into this community because we shared the same thoughts on prepping. By the looks of the thumbs down, I will have to watch my six because if I run into you or your ilk, you may perceive my as one of “those” by my looks. Yeah, I do think race cards being thrown around too loosly and Affirmative Action is a stupid idea; lowering bars to correcting past wrongs. I do think it wrong that the Chris Rocks of the world can make fun of “whitey” but say a black joke you’re a racist. But, my dear friend, that should be for another forum. This, I thought, was for prepping, so my apologies to you and the other clowns that red thumbed me.

      Soon every citizen will be carrying a concealed handgun whether the law approves of it or not. The “authorities” will be so overwhelmed they won’t even try to enforce these laws against concealed weapons. It will just be a given that everybody is armed and when the thugs start getting shot on a regular basis, things will get back to normal. Before the 1840′s in Britain, people were likely to be attacked by stagecoach robbers if they chose this mode of travel. The only thing that put an end to the highwaymen wasn’t the police but every traveler carrying a gun.

      “In 2011, a large flash mob targeted patrons of the Wisconsin State Fair. Witnesses report that the racially motivated mob involving hundreds of individuals was, “attacking everybody for no reason whatsoever.” Most of the victims were white.”

      Has Alex gone politically correct on us?

      The fair this guy is writing about involved black on white attacks, and they were screaming it was “beat whitey” night.

      Covering up the racial aspect of the incident just encourages these people to do more of the same.

      Also, saying the crowd they are reporting on above was “racially diverse” is plain hogwash. All they need to do is see or hear of some whigger within the mob to call it “racially diverse.”

      Also, their bias is plain for all to see. They have installed two black teleprompter readers in news positions in an area that has a low population of blacks, making it obvious that they’re so politically correct white people are being discriminated against for jobs at that station, because their desire is over black representation.

      I’m really sick of this black on white hate and the spineless white weenies who report on it.

      Didn’t some A hole say “YOU DIDN’T BUILD THAT” meaning it didn’t belong to you it belonged everyone. These flash mob turds are just doing what Obullshit said.

      The footage that I saw was only of one race. I’m not a racist but I call it as I see it. I believe that they are taking a “Q” from the Obullshit to start some kind of a race war so he can bring in Martial Law. The other footage from Wisc. is old. If I remember right it was white youths and black youth fighting with each other.

      These are the Leaches and Zombies I keep preaching about. They are only taking clothing now. Tomorrow they will be taking food. Remember that the SNAP cards just got cut.

      Obullshit keeps printing money and money has no value so they are stealing everything that they can. Today the stores tomorrow you home!!!

      You folks in the City you had better prepare for this because its coming and the only way to stop it is to ARM yourself and know how and WHEN to use it. Some might think that food and clothing is not worth fighting over, Well it will be when you are staving and freezing.

      For us folks in the country. If a mob shows up at my house I know that they are up to NO GOOD, They will feel the RATH of the Old Sgt. and All Might God, and I believe some will meet JESUS.

      If you can carry in your state you better do so because this is just the tip of the ICE BERG. You think its going to stop at the store they just robbed if you are standing outside of the store they will hurt you too, because they don’t want any witness, and they will rob you,and hurt you family to.

      When these turds steel all this stuff they a pushing prices higher and will cause companies to go out of business, because they can’t afford the insurance and to cost to replace the items.

      There I said it. and explained in my humble opinion WHY.
      ITS OBULLSHITS FAULT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Civil war is at hand, because the first time a WHITE store owner kills a BLACK youth the fight will be on. Just look back to last summer in the Martin case. Weather you believe the verdict was right or wrong it doesn’t matter he was found not guilty. If it would have been a black on black or a white on white crime there wouldn’t have been a trail with this much publicity!

    56. The problem with our legal system is that these thugs can’t be stopped by lethal force basically handcuffing the store owners. There are alternatives for self defense. Law enforcement in Chicago will hang a store owner that tries any type of lethal force on these crooks.

      We have a new product that is perfect for these thugs. Picture pepper spray coming at you at 405 MPH! Every store owner should have one. These flashmobs will spread because the “real” economy is starting to show it’s face. The phony wallstreet economy is failing more and more every day. The more they get away with it without anyone stopping them, the more it will happen.

      Good morning, Sarge, and you’re right on target. When the balloon finally goes up, things like race, gender, religion, etc. won’t mean a damn thing. Survival is the only thing that counts. If/when any mob shows up at my place, I know it won’t be “Avon calling”. Bertha and the rest of my “ventilation team” will be loaded and ready. BTW, I watched that same video of the black flash mob and you’re right; one “ethnic origin’ was all I saw also and I don’t care if I’m red-thumbed. I call it like I see it also. Sarge, I’m sure you’re familiar with the FBI’s Uniform Crime report and another report published by the USDOJ’s Bureau of Justice Statistics every year. The gist of those 2 studies are that black males are more likely than other group of people in the US to commit serious and violent crimes. THAT COMES STRAIGHT FROM 2 OFFICAL US GOVERNMENT STUDIES, NOT ME. Regardless, anyone who comes to my place with evil intentions, regardless of race, gender, religion, or what they’re wearing, I’ll give them ONE CHANCE AND ONE CHANCE ONLY to turn around and go away alive. If they make one wrong move, then it’s game on. MOLON LABE braveheart

      Anyone watch Doomsday Preppers? Season 4 has turned out to be very good so far. I just watched episode one and two and the reasons these preppers are giving for why they are prepping are mostly based on the corrupt/criminal federal government. I sure hope these guys on the Doomsday Preppers show aren’t taken out by the government criminals when the SHTF.

      there has been no arrests anywhere across the United Stated with black flash mobs. Obama and Eric the scumbag contempt of Congress Holder related to these people it was there right to steal and hurt people solely because they are black. black on white crime is just fine with this administration and in many cases murder is justified in favor of these animal savages.
      Holder is the one that needs to stand trial for all these thefts and murders of whites by the savage blacks. be careful black folks , you’re going to pick on some tough white dudes sooner or later, who will sever your head from your ugly body sooner, and it wont make a difference how many is in your mob, you will all go down. Just a warning, white american wont put up this for to much longer and the hurting and maiming of whites becasue you are all racist pieces of garbage. Obama and holder have done more harm to your black folks then you can ever imagine and they are using all of you knowing very well they cant stand you.

      This is a false flag if you look at the article, they state there are those calling for martial law to be declared because of this incident. I can think of all kinds of ways this could work to further the liberal agenda, I’m sure that the readers here can too. Number one a test to see if the local authorities will declare martial law over this type of incident. Number two a reason to bring the TSA to local stores. And so on add nauseum.

      No amount of money can change primal genetic predisposition.

      Didn’t see this social behavior among White Americans during the Great Depression when there was REAL massive deprivation and social support systems were nonexistent.

      Hundreds of billions of dollars in social, economic and educational subsidies over numerous decades, nearing an entire century, existing up to today, and this is what the result is.

    66. The only thing needed is to vote for people who will distribute that unused state land of a nation and redistribute that extreme sequestered wealth – leave the richest 20 million at most, and that would whittle down those affected by redistribution to less than 0.1%. As soon as the next election if people vote for candidates who think in the above manner, or run for candidacy with the above as a truly citizenship uplifting agenda, everyone need never work again.

      Distribute unused state land and abolish taxes. Legalise psychedelic gropwing for own use. End of problem.

      It truly breaks my heart to see the amount of ignorance and racism on this site, being that it looks like it will be helpful in possibly preparing (i don’t want to say that i sadly doubt that this will happen, but my parents DO NOT EVEN WANT TO LISTEN! I’m a paraplegic still live with parents, and unfortunately the only one who keeps abreast or is aware of Gods plan through the dollar collapse and SH’ingTF. My mom is stagnant in listening or acting, and my Dad is WILLFULLY ignorant, and will have nothing of any sort of kooky, conspiracy talk. I’ma [paraplegic and do not have access to leave my house freely after hurricane sandy, what do i do?).

      Yes most of these mobs are black people, and most of the crime are at the hands of black YOUTH. But where do most black people live in this country? Poor, Neglected inner city areas. What are the best conditions to breed a criminal thug instead of a possibly good, contributing individual? Poor areas.

      Now lest equate that along with CIA drug/gun trafficking, the careful selection and marketing of negative rap music to impressionable, mentally malleable YOUTH perpetuated by Zionist owned record label company’s, and a purposefully ineffective and underfunded education system.

      The lets also include hand out programs like welfare, EBT, food stamps, affirmative action, etc…, instead of actually fixing and stabilizing the economic, social and educational foundations of these areas, and this is what you have, ignorance and violence. I’m not apologizing for this as a black person, but the ability to make sound, ethical, sensible decisions has been breeded out of us sBlack people through social engineering. We all have been victims to this.

      You think they can’t dispatch a team to suppress these little kid goons? Yep, they can. But instead they will let violent foot criminals reign until the average Joe BEGS for daddy government to do something- insert martial law here.

      Wise up, folks, sheesh. Nigger this, feral coon that. I don’t even get mad anymore.
