Riot Defense: A Sneaky DISGUISE If You Get Caught In A Mob!

Riot Civil Unrest Escape And Evasion: Sneaky Disguise For Riots

Journalists beaten bloody and sent to the hospital simply for covering political protests.

Protesters savagely kicked and punched just for carrying an American flag.

Black-clad, masked thugs blocking traffic, threatening drivers and then chasing down and beating an old man who drove through their roadblock.

Store owners beaten to death for trying to save their life’s work.

What do all these attacks have in common?

The violence was all done by Antifa.

This “anti-fascist” group was something most people had never heard of before a couple years ago.

After the 2016 elections, they started showing up at political rallies and events more than ever, making it dangerous for anyone (left, right, or center) to express an opinion in public.

Left, Right, Center… it doesn’t matter, because if you’re not with them, they’ll attack you.

But violence at political protests, and trying to silence opinions you don’t agree with by beating people with pipes and crowbars, has gone to the next level with the riots that are now rampaging across the country after the death of George Floyd.

A lot of the violence has involved Antifa getting in on the mobs.

(We know, because we’ve seen some of them arrested already, including one Antifa member who was escorted to the police station by his parents to turn himself in.)

And THAT gives you, the citizen defender, a real opportunity!

How To Disguise Yourself In A Riot

Riot Civil Unrest Escape And Evasion: Sneaky Disguise For Riots

Obviously, the safest place to be in a riot is somewhere else.

We’ve talked in these emails, and on the MCS blog, about how to avoid a riot before it happens, and how to escape one if you can see the warning signs.

But when I saw just how many Antifa were involved in the rioting, recently, I realize that presents a very real opportunity for you if you get caught unexpectedly in a flash mob or riot.

Sometimes, these things happen before you realize it.

And the fact that most Antifa wear hoodies and face masks means that you can leverage stuff you already carry with you.

These days, we’re all carrying face shields and face masks, right?

Well, if you do find yourself in a riot, there’s no way you can fight them.

They outnumber you by hundreds to one!

So you have to outsmart them, “ninja style.”

That means, if you have a face shield or bandanna, and you can combine it with a hat (or another bandanna, or a hoodie, to cover your head)…

…you’ll look just like the other Antifa rioters!

If you suddenly find yourself in a riot, then, slip on your disguise.

Raise your fist to the sky.

Chant their slogans with them.

Work your way through the crowd as if you’re one of them, just there rioting along with them…

…and as they move, migrate to the edges and back of the crowd, so that when you can cut through a side street, alley, or other piece of cover, you can get clear of the mob!

What really matters is that you do your best to blend in so you can gain the time needed to sneak away.

Just remember – if police or riot control military personnel show up, they have no way of knowing you’re NOT one of the rioters.

Understand that as long as you’re in disguise, you’re in constant danger… and get the heck out of there as quickly as you can while playing along.

It’s a bold strategy, and one that might annoy you a little bit to have to pretend… but I guarantee you, it’s better than trying to fight off hundreds of people who want to tear you apart!

Do what you have to, get clear of the riot, and make sure you and your family are safe.

That’s all we can do, sometimes, when social chaos finds us.

Urban Escape & Evasion Driving Tips: Father Attacked By Gang In Car!

Urban Escape And Evasion Driving

The young husband and father was just minding his own business as he was driving home from work one night…

It was dark out – especially on the remote New Mexican desert road – and he barely noticed the car coming toward him in the opposite lane because its lights were completely off.

As a “common” courtesy, he flashed his lights to let the other drive know he needed to turn his headlights on.

Looking in his rear-view mirror, he saw the car turn his lights on.

But What Happened Next Was Completely Unexpected… And Nearly DEADLY!

Urban Escape And Evasion Driving

The other vehicle suddenly did a split-second U-turn and began picking up speed to close in on the father’s bumper.

Veering into the opposite lane and stepping on the gas, the vehicle pulled up alongside as a passenger in the back seat thrust a handgun out the window and fired at the father who simultaneously slammed on his brakes to avoid a crash (and a bullet)!

Fortunately the other vehicle didn’t pull back around for a second shot and sped off down the remote highway.

This scenario could have spelled D.E.A.T.H. for a loving husband and father who was only trying to be an friendly driver – and is a good example of why YOU need to add “escape & evasion driving” to your survival toolbox…

This was a true story I discovered in my rough “armpit” of a town I lived in during my time in New Mexico where local gangs (we had 4 of them – and they were rough!) ruled the roads.

These gangs would initiate new members by driving around with their lights off.

The first oncoming car that flashed its lights as a “friendly heads up” would become the “target car”.

The gang would circle around and the new member’s role was to shoot at the car…

…no matter WHO was in it!

These are very real scenarios that you MUST prepare for… as well as others…

For example, what if you were:

  • Harassed on the road by a group of thugs on a drunken joy ride?
  • Being chased by a fuming driver on the highway who you mistakenly cut off and he’s trying to run you down?
  • Trapped in an urban area during civil unrest as anarchists stop cars and attack drivers?

Now “evasive driving” DOESN’T mean you have to have a fast car and go to bodyguard school.

In fact, here are 4 tips you can master right now for “escape & evasion” driving skills when you’re being chased by a car full of attackers:

1. “Speed” is not necessarily your friend

The one who survives a high speed car chase isn’t usually the fastest, it’s the one who doesn’t crash.

Watch those idiots being chased by police on shows like “Cops” and those crazy “caught on video” shows and you’ll see that all the police have to do is follow the perp until he wraps himself around a telephone pole and then put the cuffs on him.

In a chase, try not to travel over 65mph to make sure you can handle your car effectively on the turn of a dime.

2. Turn when they can’t

Rather than try to outrun someone, let them get close enough to you and then take a quick, last minute turn in a different direction.

Action is faster than reaction.

If they’re behind you, they won’t be able to respond in time to take the same turn you just did.

They’ll either crash or have to back up to follow you and by then, you’ll be long gone.

3. If on a highway, take a 4-lane exit

If you’re being chased by someone on the highway, identify an upcoming exit and move to the far LEFT lane.

With your pursuer close behind you, make sure you have clearance and at the last minute, shoot across all 4 lanes to barely make your exit.

It will be difficult for them to back up, especially in the left lane against traffic, to follow you.

4. Distract the driver

This is one of my favorite tricks…

If you’re driving at night, reach under your seat and pull out a 2- to 5,000,000 candlepower spotlight. (You can get these from any boating or auto store.)

Shine it behind you at the driver and you’ll instantly blind him.

He’ll likely stop the car out of sheer panic of crashing (which he may do).

These are just a few of the tricks you can use to escape from someone while you’re in your vehicle.

For even sneakier tactics, there’s a whole section on “survival driving” in our “urban escape and evasion” manual you can see here…

It’s loaded with tactical strategies not just for driving, but for dealing with ANY situation where you’re targeted for an attack by a group of people during collapse, riots, civil unrest, and martial law.

Unfortunately, these type of events have become more and more common… and most people have no idea how to survive these scenarios.

Don’t be one of them.

Looting/Looter Threat: Pandemic COWARDS Targeting Your Family!

Looting and Social Chaos: The Pandemic Coward Threat

I have to tell you, I thought I’d seen just about everything when it comes to how awful people can be.

The COVID-19 pandemic has lowered the bar for the worst-of-the-worst, though.

What am I talking about?

Well, a news report came out just a couple weeks ago that said “pandemic looters” – really, pandemic COWARDS – have been targeting the weakest citizens for mugging and robbing:

Elderly women.

The threat, however, is not just about “grandma”. . .

This is actually just the beginning of a much LARGER threat that we ALL have to be on guard for.

The “Pandemic Coward” Threat To You And Your Family!

Looting and Social Chaos: The Pandemic Coward Threat
Looting and Social Chaos: The Pandemic Coward Threat

When I was in the military, I saw this first hand in “third world” locations.

As the normal rule of law starts to break down – and as people start to think that the “rules don’t apply to them” (because the authorities are stretched thin, or society itself is unraveling) – the cowards become more bold.

By cowards, I mean the people who take advantage of a crisis – like this pandemic – to prey on those they think are weaker.

And when I saw this news article out of California, I realized we were seeing the beginning of the same thing:

Police in San Francisco reported at the end of last month that there had been several violent robberies of elderly women – done at gunpoint, sometimes by shoving these 70- and 80-year-old women to the ground.

They specifically said that these are thugs taking advantage of the pandemic, targeting isolated women in this time of “social distancing.”

At the same time, there has been a surge in home invasions during the shelter-in-place order, as well as burglaries of locked-down commercial establishments.

And that’s how it starts.

We’ve let countless violent prisoners out of jail in an attempt to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

A lot of THOSE criminals have committed new crimes (up to and including murder).

And the “street predators” out there, who start with elderly women because these victims offer the least resistance, are getting more and more bold in the houses they break into.

In other words, first they attack the elderly… then they break into empty businesses… and then they invade occupied homes… all while the police are busy enforcing “social distancing” policies somewhere else!

In other words, you cannot afford to shelter in place and think the danger out there won’t come to your door.

The chaos all around us – the unraveling of our society caused by this pandemic – will eventually get better.

But until it does – and we may be a ways off from turning the corner on that yet – you and the people you love are in danger.

To outsmart this social chaos, you’ve got to know clever, sneaky ways to detect, avoid, and fight back against these threats.

Again, I’ve seen this type of chaos with my own eyes – and it’s exactly the sort of thing I talk about in my “urban escape and evasion manual.”

The book shows you how to protect yourself and your family from looters, home invaders, and even civil unrest and riots

(It’s LOADED with sneaky tips, methods, tactical strategies, and moves for dealing with ANY situation in which you’re in danger of attack by a group of people during collapse, riots, civil unrest, and martial law.)

This threat is only going to get worse before it gets better in the coming weeks and months.

Learn how to protect yourself and your family now so the pandemic cowards and predators can’t make you a victim.

Looter Social Chaos Home Invasion Threat

Thirty million people unemployed.

I mean, what could possibly go wrong?

Right now, we’re seeing a “perfect storm” of conditions that will create civil unrest and social chaos…

…While raising the chances of looting and home invasion THROUGH THE ROOF.

And that’s why we need to talk about…

The Looter Threat Sitting In Your Driveway

Looter Social Chaos Home Invasion Threat

I don’t need to tell you that this pandemic has gone on long enough to make people desperate.

On top of that, the food supply chain has taken a hit, which is going to cause shortages.

(Already, some Wendy’s restaurants have had to take beef off the menu because their supplier can’t provide it.)

At the same time, protests are breaking out in state after state, as people SCREAM to go back to work.

And the police?

They’ve turned to berating people for not social distancing… and, in one viral video, beating up bystanders who interfere with social distancing arrests (at least in one case in New York).

All this is a deadly formula for social chaos.

We’re not just talking about riots; we’re talking about people coming into your home to take what they need.

With all these stresses on people, and with all the threats in the media, more and more they’re going to start looking to TAKE what they want and need from people who have it.

But that brings me to the threat sitting in your own driveway that could bring looters to your door: your own vehicle!

Firearms Stickers: The Social Chaos Looter Threat In Your Driveway
Firearms Stickers: The Social Chaos Looter Threat In Your Driveway

Too many of us are rocking stickers on our vehicles that proclaim our hobbies and memberships.

I’ve written before about how those “family stickers” can tip off home invaders to the presence of spouses and children in your house.

Well, one of the most attractive “steal-me” items to a looter or home invader is your guns – which means a gun sticker, or NRA membership decal on your car or truck is like ringing the dinner bell to a thief!

I know: you think of your gun as something you use to protect yourself.

But if a determined home invader or looter targets you for your guns, he’s going to be extra fast and extra vicious in bringing the pain to neutralize you.

You have what he wants – something he can use to take stuff from other people, and something that he can sell for plenty of cash to other looters just like him.

Making sure you don’t tip off other people to the fact that you’re armed is just one of TONS of tips and tricks for protecting your family from social chaos.

Whether it’s the looters who might come to your door… or the riots taking place in the street outside… this is an incredibly dangerous time for all of us.

All it takes is ONE trigger to ignite a complete breakdown in civil order before cop cars are being tipped over in the streets and buildings set on fire… triggering riots, martial law, etc.

In fact, we’re already seeing the beginning of this, which means you’ve got to take action NOW to protect yourself and your loved ones.

My “urban escape and evasion” manual shows you how to do that.

It’s LOADED with sneaky tips, methods, tactical strategies, and moves for dealing with ANY situation in which you’re in danger of attack by a group of people during collapse, riots, civil unrest, and martial law…

…Or you’re worried about looters coming to where you live to take what they want.

Learn how to protect yourself and your family now so you don’t get caught unaware.

It’s the only way to survive this pandemic and get through to something closer to “normal” for all of us.

2020 Elections: Trump, Riots, Civil Unrest, Violent Protests, And How To Survive

2020 Elections, Political Protests, Civil Unrest: Surviving The Coming Trump Riots

Jeff Anderson
Jeff Anderson, Editor

Look, this isn’t pretty, but you need to hear it:

Say you’re out walking with your family.

You’ve got your wife with you, and maybe your kids…

…When you get hit in the back of the head with a bottle!

Suddenly, you’re surrounded by angry, screaming people.

They’re carrying clubs, rocks, and improvised weapons.

And they think YOU support a politician they HATE.

Would you know how to escape without getting hurt?

You may not have thought about it, but this is a REAL threat…

…because as bad as political violence has gotten since President Trump was elected in 2016, it’s about to get a hundred times worse:

How To Survive The Coming TRUMP Riots

2020 Elections, Political Protests, Civil Unrest: Surviving The Coming Trump Riots
2020 Elections, Political Protests, Civil Unrest: Surviving The Coming Trump Riots

Look, I’m not trying to make a political statement here.

I don’t care who you voted for, or who you’re going to vote for – because I want you and your family to be safe.

It doesn’t matter if you love God Emperor Trump or if you hate Evil Cheeto Man.

Left, Right, Center… if you’re in the wrong place at the wrong time, you could be the victim of political violence.

Either because you get caught by the wrong side, or because you get caught between the two warring sides who are at each other’s throats, you need to avoid protests and rallies at all costs.

Because, amigo, no matter how well armed you are, you can’t take on ten or twenty people who want to beat the sh-t out of you.

The only REAL solution, then, is not to be there!

To avoid these dangerous events completely, you’ve got to know where they’re going to be… so here are 3 resources for identifying where these protests will pop up!

1. Social Media

Facebook groups, Twitter hashtags, and other social media sites (like Snapchat) are how many political activists coordinate with each other.

This is especially true for “flash mobs,” which are protests that come together almost out of nowhere.

A hashtag, like #HateThatPolitician (I made that up just now), is how members of a certain group, or followers of the same cause, tag their posts so they can find each other.

Facebook groups, meanwhile, are groups anybody can join.

As we ramp up to the 2020 elections, it wouldn’t hurt you to join and follow some groups, hashtags, and other social media accounts for various protest causes or groups (like “Never Trump” or “MAGA”, etc.) so you know what BOTH sides are doing and planning.

Because no matter where these folks gather, no matter what side you’re on, social chaos keeps erupting around them… and that’s a THREAT to your family!

(I cover some of the other dangers of social chaos in my urban escape and evasion manual. More on that in a bit.)

2. Protest Websites

A lot of political action groups and specific causes, from climate change to gun rights to gun control and everything in between, have websites devoted to them.

These are just an “Ask Jeeves” search away.

(That’s still a thing, right? It’s my homepage in Netscape Navigator.)

Whatever search you use, you can find these sites, many of which have protest calendars with dates, times, and locations.

Some of these are even sharable so you can add them to your own private calendar… and get notifications so you can steer clear of local places that are about to get “interesting.”

3. The Activists Groups Themselves

A lot of specific groups, from Antifa to pro-Trump to grassroots rights groups, have newsletters, sites, specific groups, and other ways to contact them.

They’ll send out mailings to alert members to upcoming “actions,” and a few even use old-fashioned phone trees (or, more likely, modern text messaging).

You can use a disposable email or even a burner phone to “join” these groups to get direct alerts.

If you live in a hot-bed protest location, like Portland, for example, you could “join” the local activist groups so you know when and where they’re going to be out in the streets.

A lot of the groups just post the information publicly on their sites and in their specific social groups, too.

(The information is out there just waiting for you, and these groups mostly don’t keep it secret, because this is how they gather protesters.)

Remember, though, that no matter how hard you try to avoid a protest, you may not be able to catch them all.

Especially with flash mobs, the place you’re in could be fine one minute, and a mob of angry activists could be screaming about something the next.

In this political climate, with the 2020 elections looming, it’s like you’re standing in a room filled with gasoline… and every one of those protesters has a match.

All it takes is ONE person to ignite a complete breakdown in civil order before cop cars are being tipped over in the streets and buildings set on fire… triggering riots, martial law, etc.

My “urban escape and evasion” manual shows you how to protect yourself and your family from something like that – including a sudden violent protest (or a full-blown riot).

(It’s LOADED with sneaky tips, methods, tactical strategies, and moves for dealing with ANY situation in which you’re in danger of attack by a group of people during collapse, riots, civil unrest, and martial law.)

This type of political violence has become a fact of life for all of us, and it’s only going to get worse as we get closer to November… up to and including full-blown “Trump riots.”

Learn how to protect yourself and your family now so you don’t get caught unaware.

It’s the only way to survive the political dumpster fire that you KNOW is on the way this year.

3 Urban Survival Myths (And The Truth About How To Survive In A Collapse!)

Jeff Anderson
Jeff Anderson, Editor

For years, the groupthink on urban survival was that, in a disaster situation where there’s a medium to long term breakdown in infrastructure and civil order, the ONLY way to survive was to flee the city.

You were supposed to run, like a dog with its tail between its legs, and hide out in the woods until things get back to normal.

The truth is, this is really dated thinking that ignores history.

To get to the bottom of this, we’ve got to dispel some of the myths about urban survival in a collapse.

I talked to my friend Ox to get his thoughts on this topic.

Here is a run-down of what he had to say to me.

Urban Survival Myths (And The TRUTH About How To Survive In A Collapse)

Urban Survival Myths Busted
Urban Survival Myths Busted

Ox

Besides the logistics of whether or not you’ve got a fully stocked rural retreat to flee to, or the fact that there’s a good chance that it will be difficult to travel with gridlock and roadblocks, there are several reasons why cities — or urban areas — make good places to STAY after a disaster.

There are three big urban survival lies that have convinced people this isn’t so.

Let’s talk about each one of them.

Urban Survival Lie #1: “With all those people, everything’s going to run out right away.”

While this is true, it’s just the first chapter of the story.

In the event of a medium- to long-term breakdown in order after a disaster, many people will abandon cities and others will die of shock, medical reasons or violence, leaving a remnant of people who were prepared and can continue/rebuild the economy.

Also, at some point, products like fuel, food and other supplies will start being distributed again.

If refiners, farmers and other distributors have the option to deliver to one city or 10 towns, they’ll pick the one city.

Their cost to deliver goods to only one location will be less AND they’ll probably be able to sell the goods at a premium because of higher demand.

The key here is to have enough supplies on hand to make it through the worst part of a civil breakdown situation until resupply begins.

Urban Survival Lie #2: “I’ll be a sitting duck in my house!”

After a disaster, if violence is particularly bad, you can rotate a watch without it being too much of a burden on any one family.

This concept has been around for generations.

Just to be clear, it doesn’t stop crime, it only changes the location where it happens.

If a crackhead needs to steal a TV to support his habit, it’ll just get them to go a block or two away to break into a house and steal someone else’s stuff.

Of course, in a disaster situation, many have scaled this up and have multiple roving people covering an entire neighborhood.

In the country, there’s just too much space between houses to make this practical.

Why?

Because in an urban area, one person can watch several houses at one time.

Urban Survival Lie #3: “Everyone in the city will turn on each other.”

Actually, this is partially true.

I hear people talk about their organized plans to kill, loot and steal from their neighbors way too often.

Just yesterday a friend told me how he overheard a group of otherwise rational people talking about how they have their neighborhood mapped out and the houses prioritized according to which ones they’re going to attack first.

This is no joke — the TRUTH about surviving in a collapse is that you have to be able to defend yourself against predators like these.

It’s why we talk about “survival weapons” so much here.

I think these people should and will be “taken care of” quickly if they ever start acting on their sick plans.

They go against everything that America stands for, and they disgust me.

There is another side to this story… one which has a lot more historical evidence.

Think of barn raisings and the ability of a rural community to band together to get a big project done.

Now think about how many more people there are in a city than in a rural area and how much easier it would be for any one person to get a group of people together to get a big project done when there are so many more people to ask.

Stop laughing at the thought of city people helping each other: As we saw after September 11th, there are people who WILL come together to help in a crisis.

So what do you think?

Will YOU stay in the city after a disaster?

Will YOU Shelter In Place In The City? Why Or Why Not?
