    Default Rioting - How Will It Go Down?

    topic not discussed that much - Perhaps not enough? >>> Is it in your planning?

    SOME WHAT-IF QUESTIONS

    For many of the younger readers of this article, the LA Riots seem to be almost from ancient history. Yet, it is said that “the best predictor of future behavior is usually past behavior.” While on any given day, a riot could break out across the country due to social, political, or racial conflicts (yes, we’ve all heard the discussion about “Civil War II”), what if an EMP attack occurred, or to a lesser extent, a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME)? While tensions with North Korea have arguably lessened, the situation with Iran is heating up. With an EMP or CME as a possibility, ask yourself the following:

    What would happen if police and fire units could not operate because their electronics were fried?
    What would happen if credit card and debit card transactions could not be processed because the grid was down?
    What would happen if EBT cards (modern food stamps) could not be used because the grid was down?
    What would happen if every National Guard unit was located in areas in which their own localities were overwhelmed by their own problems? (One National Guard officer being interviewed in the video said that she lived 300 miles from LA.)
    What would happen if the National Guard could not appear at the scene because Guardsmen had no transportation to get to their armories? (National Guardsman often live quite far from their unit armories.)
    What would happen if National Guardsmen decided to stay home to protect their own families?
    What would happen if statewide/regional mutual support agreements among fire departments were not honored because every fire department was overwhelmed by its own problems? (After the November fires here in Southern California, I talked to men in my neighborhood from the Texas A&M University Forestry Service. I heard on the radio that units from Indiana also responded to the California fires.)/li>
    What would happen if law enforcement, firemen, and National Guardsmen decide to stay home and protect their families?
    What would happen if municipal workers (water, power, sanitation, etc.) were rendered useless because, without power, there wasn’t much to run anyway?
    What would happen if municipal workers couldn’t get to work because they had no transportation to get to work?
    What would happen if municipal workers decided to stay home to protect their families?

    I could keep going, but I expect that most readers will comprehend the enormity of the situation.

    I live in rural Texas and don't worry much about it for myself and wife. Kids live in town but in relatively good area. With that said, my bailout route takes me west into more rural area and then south to ranch. About halfway is on state roads, but then I can go nearly the rest of the route on dirt county roads. Feel good for me.

    Kids I've instructed to get out of town the most direct route possible noting that major thoroughfares would be targets for rioting and blockades. They should proceed to small town where Texan II is LEO. I have two 3o day buckets of food for them or him to utilize. He can probably arrange safe passage most of the way to ranch.

    Those are the plans, and we know how that goes, but I would not stick around for rioting.
    Once on safari in deepest darkest Afganistan we ran out of Gin, and were compelled to survive on food and water for several days.

    Similar situation to Chip......very similar. Not much chance of rioting approaching either main home or BOL, too remote, just don't see it. However, I would expect the random idiots to show up, but they don't worry me near as much as a large scale riot like the cities will see....

    I don't come here often because so much of my time is spent reading to write an economics blog. I wanted to pass on what I have learned regarding economics. First of all, I have to ask that you read Martin Armstrong. He and his undergrads built a program with all the financial history of the world. It also contains most of the entire history of the world. The program runs 33,000 variables in real time with AI. It has a close to perfect record for accuracy. It has only missed on a few minor items. The financial records go back as far as 5,000 years.
    He is painfully clear that the next crash will be a crash of PUBLIC debt. Since States and counties don't have a printing press, they will go early. Remember that 51% of Americans receive a check from GOV. Beggars to defence contractors. 44 million Americans receive direct GOV assistance. Armstrong's program, Socrates makes it's predictions limited to a THREE day window. It writes 500 financial reports every day.
    Armstrong is quite clear. The world economy will crash in January of 2020. The revolutions and civil wars will commence in 2021 and 2022.
    Armstrong refused to turn his program over to the government. For that, they charged him with contempt-of-court. He did SEVEN years of hard time in Fort Dix. They put a big felon in his cell who tired to kill him,, and, did succeed in putting him in a coma. He eventually got a lawyer to take his case, pro bono and get a change of venue OUT of the crooked NYC courts.
    One of the things that he was charged with was, manipulating markets. Well, he had $ 3trillion under management and, was beating the pants off the NYC banks.

    The reason that Mention this; Armstrong can NOT come out and predict a banking collapse. They would string him up by the thumbs.
    He writes; " have at least one weeks worth of bill-paying cash on hand" Can you read between the lines? He also said; "this is for gas and food only. Forget your mortgage" He suggests having a months worth of food on hand.
    He never said "bank closure". I expect that credit cards would NOT work when the banks are closed. I don't know about gas cards.
    EBT, etc is administered by private banks.
    Traditionally, a bank closure is done on a weekend to give them a bit more time to get things straightened out.
    Most people would be immobilized if they had to rely on cash.
    People tend to panic if they think that they will be cut off from supplies. Yes, they will go house-to-house.
    Do NOT die for a building.
    The more affluent a neighborhood, the more calm the people will remain,,, at least for the first few days.
    If you can't feed em all,,, and you can not kill em all,,, emulate the noble cockroach and, run away.

    Obviously a cold-weather bugout would be much different from a warm-weather bugout. The collapse commences in January. Dunno how fast it will unroll. It will be worse in Europe. 25% of the households in London do not have anyone employed.
    France will burn.
    The areas with the most genetic diversity will riot first, NO, not you Switzerland. Places like Marseilles and NYC.
    In the lead-up to January, the weather will get increasingly more violent. You can already see the huge crop loses.

    YOU know what your neighborhood is like. YOU know what neighborhoods you don't want to drive through.
    The riots will have more warning than a tornado AND, less than a hurricane.

    It is fairly technical because the simple answers are rubbish.

    old article from the end of last year - but they have it correct about the violence >>> not going to matter which of the few remaining 2020 DNC candidates wins the primary - going to be a bunch of hired guns by the DNC to fight the GOP Trump groundswell in MN-WI-MI-OH-PA-SC-NC-FL-VA >>> wouldn't be too surprised to see workers attacked/killed and political offices torched ...

    the DNC is more radical than ever before in US history - desperation doesn't help >>>> they've seen the work ethic and success for 4 years <<<< even with the RINO opposition and constant attacks by the DNC side >>> scares the everliving **** out of them thinking another 4 years leading into possibly ANOTHER 2 term GOP POTUS ...

    well said all
    and I give an additional thumbs up to Martin Armstrong's work

    I am like kingchip and borrego, pretty safe where I am at, but all three of my boys live in NFL cities.
    they of course think I am nuts.

    while I won't face riots like in a city, what concerns me is like Danny said "If you can't feed em all,,, and you can not kill em all'
    while the Smokey Mountains are generally an independent culture, there are still plenty of leeches out there that live hand to mouth on their EBT card.
    My wife volunteers at a local food bank and they see about 30 families every day getting free food - USDA as well as private donations.
    So even in the relatively safe areas things will get spicey once the food runs out - and that won't take very long if the EBT cards stop.

    I certainly believe "something" bad is coming. And likely relatively soon. I'm not sure about only six months from now but I could see it happening within two years.
    We are very likely safe at home. We have to drive a hundred miles just to get to a 4-lane highway.

    Been feeling the same for some time now. Thanks for sharing. Things have been ratcheting up for a while between ANTIFA violence, shootings in major Dem controlled cities, veiled calls for violence via political rhetoric, blatant calls for socialism, the denouncement of LEOs at every turn, and calls for the disbanding of national security organizations and immigration departments. For me, depending on speed of the decline, I have two BO location options. One near and one further afield. Currently, the family and I reside in one of the most affluent suburbs in one of the 15 largest cities in the country. Staying is not an option. I literally, just spent spent the weekend getting reacquainted with my gear and supplies. Made sure everything was stacked, packed, and racked for easy and quick load out. Did a dry run when everyone was out of town. By myself, I can have it all loaded and be gone inside of 4 hours. Planning is the key. Having three other people help I imagine we could be gone in 2-3 hours. Fortunately, no one in our family has any health concerns. No one is infirmed, on meds, handicapped, or special needs. Any of these factors would complicate matters exponentially. I also started caching supplies at both destinations (redundancy) and in spots between me and both locations (further redundancy). I've also mapped routes that are rural the entire way so I don't have ride with sheeple on the interstates. Make no mistake, no sane person truly wants to relocate. It'll suck more than just about anythong you've experienced in life up to this point. That being said, I'd rather have to be inconvenienced due to a relocation than digging graves with a folding shovel.

    back in the early 1990s and the circa of the Central LA Riots - no internet back then and the media was already manipulating the social aspect we saw >>>> not alot of the country was aware of the nip & tuck battle at the LA and Brentwood & Hollywood borders - a mix of coppers had all they could handle keeping the rioters from breaking thru and torching the more affluent areas - no one knew about the elites bugging out to Big Bear and their weekend resort properties - little mention of the more resilient homeowners holding their ground with loaded deer rifle in hand ...

    coming up on the 30th anniversary - today I wouldn't count on the same type of copper response - noooo where in the country >>> but I think that same racial rage & "revenge" mentality is still present - perhaps equal to the 1960s >>> I'd definitely be counting on the looting opportunists - they very definitely are around ....
