Ultra-violent gangs thrive in chaotic Venezuela despite crackdown

If you are a smart level-headed prepper and Civilian Operator then you have been studying what has been happening in Venezuela since the country started falling apart under a Socialist regime some time ago. From the Food Shortages to the Gun Confiscations, this is “prepper prophecy” unfolding right before our eyes. Most folks way smarter than me in areas of study such as Political Science and Sociology have said that Venezuela is a case study for what will eventually happen here in the United States in the next decade once Socialism and Sharia Law takes a firm hold.

As a Prepper, one of the most critical elements to understand as we look at this “glimpse into our future” is how CRIME is going to spread like wildfire and WELL ARMED GANGS are going to present a serious threat to our physical security. If scenes from Road Warrior and Clockwork Orange are running through your head, you can lock those images away for now, I don’t think it is going to get that bad, but I do think things are going to be much worse than many people think.

One thing I DO KNOW for sure: Self-Reliance will not only be a mainstay, it will be a NECESSITY TO STAY ABOVE GROUND! 

Dependence on Law Enforcement to “Lock up the Bad Guy’s” and Protect you from the “boogeyman” will be a pipe dream.

Better to come to that realization NOW if you have not already folks and start arming yourself and training LIKE A MAD MAN in realistic tactical and self-defense skill-sets NOW!

A man and woman’s ability to stay well armed and fortified with a best case scenario of having a family unit or like-minded clan to help him defend their castle and keep will improve their survivability tremendously.

Stay Alert, Stay Armed and Stay Dangerous!

STARVING SOCIALIST COUNTRY WITH FOOD RIOTS LAUNCHES GUN CONTROL EFFORT TO DISARM POPULATION

(click on link above to be re-directed to Source page)

Well first Venezuela gave all us Preppers a first hand glimpse into what it is going to be like when food shortages eventually come to this country. Now they are giving us a glimpse into another possibility:  INVOLUNTARY DISARMAMENT BY THE GOVERNMENT AND A MANDATORY REGISTERING OF BULLETS!

Take notes guys. First thing the Govt. is going to do when shit gets REALLY bad is a full court press on DISARMING THE POPULATION. Not more “Gun Control Laws” or “Registries” just MANDATORY DISARMAMENT. Why? Look at it this way:

Why do people de-claw house cats? So they are not so dangerous to handle and so they will not tear up the furniture, right? Problem is although you now have a nice, cuddly little house cat you have permanently taken away that cat’s NATURAL ABILITY to defend itself and to hunt. So in the event that poor cat ever get’s outside, in his NATURAL ENVIRONMENT, he is SCREWED both in his ability to DEFEND HIMSELF and exercise his NATURAL ABILITY TO HUNT SO HE CAN EAT!

You have now made that cat DEPENDENT ON YOU for it’s VERY SURVIVAL and WELL BEING.

That is exactly what Socialism aims to do folks…And to ENSURE it is successful, the GOVT. takes away BOTH your GOD GIVEN RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS AND THE ARMS THEMSELVES SO YOU CANNOT DEFEND YOURSELF AGAINST THE VERY TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT SCREWING YOU WITH NO LUBE.

Stay Vigilant it is Going to Happen Here.

Stay Alert, Stay Armed, Never Surrender Your GOD Given Right to be ARMED and Stay Dangerous!

Surveillance State: Push To Expand FBI Surveillance Authority Threatens U.S. Email Privacy Bill

Not sure if you guys have been paying attention to the clowns in the Senate lately, in typical backdoor fashion (kind of like the secret night time session where they passed CISA 74 to 21) they are attempting to pass legislation that if it goes through, Online Privacy will truly be an afterthought in the United States.-SF

A lock icon, signifying an encrypted Internet connection, is seen on an Internet Explorer browser in a photo illustration in Paris April 15, 2014. About two thirds of all websites use code known as OpenSSL to help secure those encrypted sessions. Researchers last week warned they have uncovered a security bug in OpenSLL dubbed Heartbleed, which could allow hackers to steal massive troves of information without leaving a trace. 

An effort in the U.S. Senate to expand the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s authority to use a secretive surveillance order has delayed a vote on a popular email privacy bill, casting further doubt on whether the legislation will become law this year.

The Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday postponed consideration of a measure that would require government authorities to obtain a search warrant before asking technology companies, such as Microsoft and Alphabet Inc’s Google , to hand over old emails. A version of the Senate bill unanimously passed the House last month.

Currently, federal agencies do not need a warrant to access emails or other digital communications more than 180 days old due to a provision in a 1986 law that considers them abandoned by the owner.

But Republican party senators offered amendments Thursday that privacy advocates argued contravened the purpose of the underlying bill and would likely sink its chances of becoming law.

Those amendments include one by Senator John Cornyn, the second ranking Republican in the Senate, that would broaden the FBI’s authority to deploy an administrative subpoena known as a National Security Letter to include electronic communications transaction records such as the times tamps of emails and their senders and recipients.

Senators Patrick Leahy and Mike Lee, the Democratic and Republican authors of the email privacy bill, agreed to postpone the vote to give time to lawmakers to review the amendments and other provisions of the bill that have prompted disagreement.

NSLs do not require a warrant and are almost always accompanied by a gag order preventing the service provider from sharing the request with a targeted user.

The letters have existed since the 1970s, though the scope and frequency of their use expanded greatly after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.

In 2015 requests for customer records via NSLs increased nearly 50 percent to 48,642 requests, up from 33,024 in 2014, according to a U.S. government transparency report.

The Obama administration has for years lobbied for a change to how NSLs can be used, after a 2008 legal memo from the Justice Department said the law limits them largely to phone billing records. FBI Director James Comey has said the change needed essentially corrects a typo.

The Senate Intelligence Committee this week passed a bill to fund the U.S. intelligence community that contains a similar provision that would allow NSLs to be used to gather email records.

Senator Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat, voted against the proposal and said it “takes a hatchet to important protections for Americans’ liberty.”

Military Defense News: Chinese Jets Intercept U.S. Military Plane over South China Sea

As if it was not enough that Russian Jets are buzzing American Planes and Ships, the Chinese have decided to join in on the fun too. Notice certain ‘news’ agencies will use the word “spy plane” versus “Reconnaissance Plane” to insinuate malicious intent. The Propaganda never stops. -SF

China1

Two Chinese fighter jets carried out an “unsafe” intercept of a U.S. military reconnaissance aircraft over the South China Sea, the Pentagon said on Wednesday, drawing a rebuke from Beijing, which demanded that Washington end surveillance near China.

The incident, likely to increase tension in and around the contested waterway, took place in international airspace on Tuesday as the U.S. maritime patrol aircraft carried out “a routine U.S. patrol,” a Pentagon statement said.

The encounter comes a week after China scrambled fighter jets as a U.S. Navy ship sailed close to a disputed reef in the South China Sea.

Another Chinese intercept took place in 2014 when a Chinese fighter pilot flew acrobatic maneuvers around a U.S. spy plane.

The intercept occurred days before President Barack Obama travels to parts of Asia from May 21-28, including a Group of Seven summit in Japan and his first trip to Vietnam.

China claims most of the South China Sea, through which $5 trillion in ship-borne trade passes every year. The Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan and Brunei have overlapping claims.

Washington has accused Beijing of militarizing the South China Sea after creating artificial islands, while Beijing, in turn, has criticized increased U.S. naval patrols and exercises in Asia.

The Pentagon statement said the Department of Defense was addressing the issue through military and diplomatic channels.

“ENDANGERING SECURITY”

China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said the U.S. statement was “not true” and that the aircraft had been engaging in reconnaissance close to China’s island province of Hainan.
