Are you prepared for your hometown to go from Mayberry to fullscale Martial Law?
With all the events going on in the world right now, we might be a lot closer to the brink that you would think…
Shootings, riots, rising tension and threats from abroad are always hanging over our heads. Any of these situations, if they get out of hand, could easily result in martial law. Governments use everything from terrorist attacks to disease epidemics to racial tension to declare martial law.
We can’t know how or when martial law will happen, but we can educate ourselves on what it is and what to do to survive it.
What is martial law?
Martial law usually occurs during a period of war or civil unrest, when the military is appointed to “restore order” and enforce civil and criminal law. During martial law, civil liberties like the 1st and 2nd amendment go out the window. Police can search you without a warrant. You will have no right to remain silent when questioned. They can remove you from your home and family…all while telling you it’s for your own good.
Put simply–martial law means that the powers that be can replace the constitution with totalitarian, military rule.
Many argue that martial law already exists in the United States. It’s easy to see why. With the ridiculous TSA screenings at the airport and with the police force using tear gas and driving military vehicles, it sometimes seems like martial law is already our reality.
But this is only the beginning…
When will martial law come to the US?
In some ways, it’s already here:
WARNING: once you see it, you’ll never see the police, the government or the military the same EVER again!
We can’t know exactly when martial law might happen, but we can watch for the warning signs:
I do not look for one false flag event designed to move the country into martial law, it is likely that several false flag events will take place, in different regions of the country. The pattern is almost always the same in which the authorities conduct a drill related to terrorism. The drill is used to mask a false flag attack arising from the drill. This happened on 9/11, the 7/7 bombings and most recently, at the Boston Marathon. These drills combined with resulting false flag events will give the administration the ability to incrementally implement martial law in a fashion similar to what happened in with the implementation of illegal martial law in Boston following the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15th. The roll out of Boston’s martial law was clearly a beta test for what is coming all across the country. And who could ever forget the images of the federal subjugation of an American city in which we saw troops in the street, curfews imposed and free travel eliminated. Read more…
What can you do to survive martial law?
The prospect of martial law might sound bleak, but remember that there is no situation too challenging for a true survivalist. It could very well be that martial law is “the big one” you’ve been preparing for all along. Many of the survival skills you’ve learned for other situations still apply here. Read on to learn what to do to increase your chances of survival in a martial law situation.
1. Come up with an evacuation plan.
Rumors or predictions from experts may alert you to impending martial law. Families living in cities should use the time leading up to the declaration to plan and practice an evacuation to a shelter away from populated areas. Make sure your vehicle gas tank is always full and store disaster supplies in the trunk of the car. Send survival supplies to the shelter site before evacuation is needed. Read more…
2. Learn to use a weapon, and train your family.
Purchase additional firearms and ammunition. Make sure every family member understands how to safely use firearms. Plan to use a silent weapon like a bow and arrow for hunting game so as not attract the attention of anyone nearby. Learn what game lives in your area and how to find it. (Even urban environments have game like squirrels and birds.) Read more…
3. Keep food, weapons, and other supplies hidden.
Even if your preps are kept at home they should be hidden well enough to go undetected by the first and even second sweep of your home that the military will conduct. Every home varies in its construction so there are no hard and fast rules but think carefully and act accordingly. Consider caches underground on your property, preferably in areas where disturbed ground is not suspicious. In urban and suburban environments, under flower beds would be a viable position. If you have acreage then be careful to keep the ‘lay of the land’ as differences will be noticed. All goods should be stored with avoiding sniffer dogs and metal detectors in mind. Read more…
4. Play it cool.
When the military does drop by, hide your contempt. This may go against the grain, but the survival of you and your family is your number one priority. Ask a few questions, but not too many. You need to be the grey man, totally unmemorable. Nothing you say or do, nothing about the way you look should make you memorable. Keep a cheap weapon and a few rounds to handover for when you are asked to hand over your weapons. Read more…
5. Trust no one.
Never take the government’s word at face value-except when they tell you that they’ll kill you. Government-it’s components of career politicians, bureaucratic vermin, and SS ninja wannabes live, have lied. For a lot longer than you’d think. It’s the very job; being part of an empire wrapped in the cloak of American political traditions of Freedom, that corrupts. All that power, attracting the most venal along with the most patriotic to defend America. All that license under ever mutable law written by money whores to lie, steal, embezzle, blackmail, extort, poison, torture, enslave, murder. Read more…
6. Familiarize yourself with your surroundings.
Whether it’s your home, property or encampment you need to have a plan. Take security into account as well as a good escape or evasion plan. Never get pigeonholed or pinned into a corner, have multiple escape routes if need be ultimately leading to your primary remote bug-out location. If more people than yourself are involved, make sure and have a group plan with back up plans. Take pets into consideration and make accommodations at all costs as they are part of your family too. Read more…
7. Have plenty of food and water stored up.
With regard to storing food, you need to do so immediately. I recommend storing two years worth of food. However, you would be wise if you would create a hiding place in which you can store food and water safely in a hidden location. If you are ever robbed, you will not have exhausted your food supplies. You are most likely to be robbed by FEMA or one of their mercenary groups (e.g. Academia) during the beginning of the crisis because food and water will be used as weapons to control you. I am personally aware of FEMA going to selected homeowners to catalogue their reserve food and water supplies. Read more…
8. Have a safe room.
If the worst happens and your home is breached, you need to have a room into which family members can escape. This room needs to have a heavy exterior door instead of a regular hollow core interior door. There should be communications devices in the room so that the person can call for help, as well as a reliable weapon to be used in the event that the safe room is breached. The family members should be instructed not to come out of that room FOR ANY REASON until you give them the all clear or help has arrived. Read more…
These are just a few of the precautions you can take in the event of martial law.
Of course, all the basics still apply: keep plenty of guns and ammo, food and water, etc. Prepare for an EMP or power outage by having alternatives to electronic devices. Keep your family together and make sure everyone knows their part in your survival plan.
Just like all disasters, martial law could happen at any time. That doesn’t mean we should live in fear, but it does mean we should take the proper steps now so we know what to do when it happens.
