On Being Prepared for Martial Law or Revolution
What activists, militia, gun owners, and EVERYBODY ELSE should expect
by H. Michael Sweeney
Regardless of your beliefs of your political stand, Kevin Bacon had it right when he uttered the line in the film, JFK; ‘The Fascists are coming back…’ When they do, they won’t announce it beforehand, they will simply execute the End Game scenario as I wrote of in my book set, Fatal Rebirth. That book, if it helps with your giving me any credence, predicted the World Trade Center being brought down by jet liners and resulting in a series of Middle East oil wars… and several other unfortunate events including an assassination attempt on a Presidential candidate, ALL OF WHICH came to pass.
So I have just one word to those who do not believe Martial Law or Revolution are in their near future… ‘fool.’ Sure, I could be the fool. But I’d rather be a fool who is prepared for something which does not come to pass than the fool who was warned but choose to be unprepared when it did come to pass. With that in mind, here is my best advice on what to do to be prepared, with three different levels of preparadness for three kinds of people — from ordinary folk to the nastiest criminal and terrorist.
In the last post of this II part series, I outlined some significant warning signs that we are headed in this direction. If you agree the risk exists, the next step is to figure out which level of preparedness is right for you…
Level III candidates:
a) Is anyone in your family likely on a list? Anyone who is an Activist or outspoken politically on the Web, or in the real World, a Militia member, a registered gun owner, or who is a member of select ‘extremist’ political or religious groups (you probably have a good idea of who you are, and yes, that includes Constitutionalists, right wing, left wing, and wingless groups), is on a list.
b) If anyone in your family was ever given the treatment by any Federal Agency other than IRS (e.g., FBI, HSA, TSA, CIA,DOJ) for ANY reason, valid or not, you are on a list.
c) d) If you are currently a Targeted Individual, you are on a list.
d) If you the sort of person who, if shooting broke out tomorrow, would likely join in the fray against government, even if not thinking yourself on a list currently, should consider yourself level III or you may be neutralized before you can act.
e) If you are an illegal or in the United States on a Visa, and you would intend to stay, you may wish consider yourself a level III, because depending on where you are from, you may be in for harsh and harmful treatment.
f) If you are a criminal or a terrorist, you should consider yourself in this group. But you can please ignore me and get caught, please, because I’m not attempting to warn you to protect you, but to warn others they are going to be treated as if they were you, because government fears them more than you.
Level II candidates:
Everyone who is not Level III but who is also not employed by or associated with a government agency, military contractor, critical service sector (banks, fuels, transportation, utilities, etc.), or not independently wealthy persons of influence and power, be it corporate, political, or public image (famous people). This means the overwhelming bulk of us.
Level I candidates:
Everyone else; those who are so associated or wealthy; the 1% and people they love.
How you should prepare
Level I and above: You must presume an inability to travel, work, or access your finances. Banks will be closed. We are talking long term. You should prepare ‘Earthquake kits’ or similar of foods, emergency items, water, and cash in low denominations. Careful. FEMA will be in charge and will consider more than one week’s supply ‘hording,’ which is will be seen as a Federal offense which can result in detention and confiscation of personal property. Does your wife can fruits or vegetables? Better not have too many in the pantry.
Be prepared to have your home ransacked in a door-to-door search looking for illicit items, stolen goods, weapons, pornography, or horded stocks. You will be asked if you have such things and if you answer ‘no,’ but they find some, you will be detained. If you answer yes, be prepared to provide immediate access.
You will likely have advance warning of at least a half hour, during which you can put breakables in a safe place and perhaps pull drawers out and place them on tables so they won’t dump them on the floors to inspect the innards of the furnishings. UNLOCK everything if you don’t want locks smashed.
Be prepared for all medications in opened containers to be taken ‘for analysis,’ so you will want to have a supply of new-sealed medicines in reserve, at least a month’s supply. Some such things like insulin would not be an issue, but pills could be anything despite what the label says.
Any politically incorrect materials could subject you to detainment. They will likely want access to your computers and make a copy of hard drive contents. It will do you no good to erase questionable items unless you are quite expert in the field and have the correct software tools. Anything questionable found could result in detention and confiscation of the computer. It, or anything else taken will never be seen again.
If you have a dog or pet, put it n a cage lest it escape in terror or be shot as a presumed threat. Chaining is only going to be potentially useful if the radius does not encompass a walkway or access to a structure, but don’t count on it. There is additionally the risk of their own dogs seeking confrontation (even encouraged to do so) with yours. There will be dogs, so stand where they tell you to stand and do not make sudden moves.
In some cases those doing the searching will not be trained Police or military, but gang members or bounty hunters, or other persons who have been given cart blanch to do whatever they want, including theft of valuables. A a safe deposit box would be advised. If you have a wall safe, I’d not put anything truly valuable beyond personal documents there. You will be asked to open it, or risk having it blown open.
Stay tuned to the emergency radio and TV channels… the only thing which will be working. While you cannot trust everything you hear, there, it is best to obey any instructions tendered. Remain polite and obedient regardless of any personal affront you may experience. Be dressed when they come as they may choose not to let you dress or cover yourself if naked, especially if female. Lone females should invite a neighbor over for protection against risk of possible sexual abuse.
Level II and above: While level I persons will generally be afforded some degree of politeness and some hope of being given a chance to resolve issues which might arise (such as uncovering pornography not admitted to when asked), everyone on Level II is considered expendable, and in the way, a nuisance. You must be prepared to be even more tolerant and cooperative, as if a prisoner of war (close to the truth).
You should plan on hiding anything you do not wish to be taken, such as valuables, reserve supplies, or weapons, especially since you will be more likely to be searched by gang members or by unethical agents than Level I. See special tactical section on how to hide things. There will likely be ‘tests’ of your character and political thinking in the form of abusive behaviors and odd unnerving questions. There may be stress analysis lie detection in use based on audible response, so try to be truthful as best suits your needs.
Level III: You may wish to consider the prior advice for your family members, but any persons who fit the criteria to justify this Level should not stick around. See Tactical Advice section on Escape Plans. If the reason for such justification was terribly serious (e.g., being a known Anarchist or politically incorrect person such as myself), you should consider taking immediate family members with you, or at least having an alternate plan for their safe evacuation of the area. Make clear there will be no contact between you and them for a considerable length of time, and that when it does happen, it will be by unexpected means to which they should not react to at all with surprise. For example, they should not call out your name. They should not discuss it with other family members without care from surveillance. I suggest a copy of my book, The Professional Paranoid which offers a long list of specific issues such as this and appropriate strategies.
Special Tactical Issues:
Hiding things: You should not expect to be able to hide anything in your home safely. Not only might they employ dogs, but metal detectors, through-the-wall viewers, FLIR, IR, and Ground Radar systems. Merchandise of late is rife with RFID tags which send out what is effectively ‘here I am’ signals on radio request, and identifies the item. Anything buried at a depth of less than 80 feet is liable to detection, depending on its size, shape, and materials, and type of detection system and operator skill. Anything that absorbs and retains heat with a different coefficient than the items within which it is hidden will be more easily seen. So what can you do?
Depending on the nature of the item(s) there are some general strategies which can be useful. Small things like CDR discs or similar can sometimes be disguised or hidden in a way not likely to be seen electronically or visually, but I prefer to take no chances and instead hide things off the property and at distance. Items underwater and additionally concealed within an irregularly shaped bundle of various content tend to be invisible, so still waters can be useful. Indoors, there are often spaces in public buildings where one can hide small things and be assured not even the cleaning staff will encounter them, such as on top of overhead ducts, within vents, in the crevices of stairwells, etc. These would be low-traffic places such as emergency exits, back stairwells, etc.
Running: Establish your route and destination in advance, and consider variations for daytime vs. nighttime, as well as for circumstances. If there are troops on patrol and checkpoints, for instance, you need far more stealth options. False I.D. is illegal. Having found someone else’s I.D. and having it in your possession is only questionable. Using one or the other is one’s own discretion, be it real I.D. or something from your computer, but sometimes, walking right through the enemy’s door is better than trying to go around it. Of course, being proficient in a Martial Art is not a bad idea, either. Just remember that a Karate chop cannot outrun a hail of bullets. The best defensive martial arts courses money can buy today is Isreali Krav Maga. For extra money, they will sometimes teach you offensive tactics.
Once you have a route, especially if requiring days of travel, hide key supplies or items along the route in advance. Have more than one location for each so that if you cannot access one for a given reason, you have an alternative. As far as destinations go, the Book Set Fatal Rebirth has some very interesting ideas about how to modify and bolster structures to resist assault, as well as how to create perimeters of protection in layered form. Similar considerations on layered defense are covered in my first book, The Professional Paranoid. But the best modification is an emergency exit to a hidden remote point and yet another escape route prepared in advance.
Fighting, defensive or otherwise: If there is ever a revolution to restore government from a military coup or similar as so many of us fear is on the horizon (because, for the most part, that Congress is too blind to see the error of their ways in belief that the Constitution has no function despite their oaths to support and defend it), one must have a battle plan. What follows are just a few of the initial things which can be found in Fatal Rebirth, which goes well beyond this short article to include Rules of Engagement and an actual Battle Plan. Of course, that book was mere fiction, albeit one written for the ‘far out and unlikely propositions’ of ‘what if they took over the country and we had to take it back?’
I have a lot more to say about such things in Fatal Rebirth, all of it legal advice. But this forum does not allow it to be shared quite so freely without risk of prompting retaliation. I may already have said too much. So be it.
Please look out for each other, even those who refuse to understand, including where possible those who follow orders persecute you. Know your enemy and their weakness. It is their mind. Attack that and you win without bloodshed.
