Society as we know it will break down and collapse in a five stage process outlined here. While it can be accelerated by certain events like war, a natural disaster, pandemic, terrorist attack, or even an impending asteroid impact, history has shown that economic collapse will essentially happen in this five stage process. To survive the collapse, it is important to read and interpret the signs and understand what assets are important to the current situation so you can be prepared for the worst thereby allowing you to survive intact and with as little damage as possible.

Mementos Reveal Civil Rights Icon’s Exposure to Armed Self-Defense

On Wednesday, the Library of Congress made the Rosa Parks Collection available to researchers. The compilation includes 2,500 photos and 7,500 manuscripts pertaining to the civil rights icon. Among these documents is a short autobiographical piece highlighting some of Parks’ early experiences with armed self-defense.

A February 3 Washington Post article details the “biographical sketch.” According to the Post, Parks explains how her grandfather used a shotgun to protect the family home in Pine Level, Ala., from potential attack by the Ku Klux Klan. One excerpt states that her grandfather “would stay up to wait for [the Klansmen] to come to our house… He kept his shotgun within hand reach at all times.” Another portion notes that Parks’ grandfather “declared that the first to invade our home would surely die.”

Stories like Parks’, where firearms were used to protect against racially motivated violence before and during the Civil Rights Era, are common. At a time when law enforcement officials were sometimes indifferent to acts of violence perpetrated against African-Americans (or in some cases even complicit in them), those seeking any protection at all had few other options.

History could certainly have been altered in dramatic fashion had the Parks home been left undefended against the depredations of the Klan. Thankfully, Parks’ family had access to an effective means of self-defense, even as they strove to obtain other basic human rights.

Examples abound of the beneficial role arms have played in the struggle for civil rights in the U.S. Local NAACP leader Rob Williams, author of Negroes with Guns, notably chartered a National Rifle Association affiliated club in order to train and arm members of his Monroe, N.C., community to combat the Klan. Chapters of the heavily armed Deacons for Defense and Justice formed throughout the Deep South to protect their communities from racial violence. According to UCLA Professor Adam Winkler, Martin Luther King Jr. unsuccessfully applied for concealed carry permit in Alabama after his home was bombed, and lived surrounded by what was described as “an arsenal.” In his book, Restricting Handguns: The Liberal Skeptics Speak Out, Don B. Kates Jr. recalls his time spent as a civil rights worker in the early 1960s South, stating, “The black lawyer for whom I principally worked did not carry a gun all the time, but he attributed the relative quiescence of the Klan to the fact that the black community was so heavily armed.”

The story of armed self-defense revealed in the Rosa Parks Collection is a welcome and important addition to the already well-established history of the use of arms to deter and defend against racially-motivated violence.

NRA Backs Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act of 2015

On behalf of its five-million members, the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) announced its support for The Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act of 2015, introduced by Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK). This legislation seeks to protect and enhance opportunities for recreational hunting, shooting and fishing.

“Preserving our Second Amendment freedoms and hunting heritage is the core of the NRA’s mission. The Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act of 2015 advances those efforts,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA-ILA.

Hunting and other outdoor sports continue to grow in popularity across America, as people seek the simple pleasure of being outdoors with friends and family. The Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act of 2015 is a compilation of various legislative efforts that seek to increase opportunities for hunters, shooters and anglers by reducing regulations that prevent Americans from enjoying our outdoor heritage.

“On behalf of our members, I want to thank Senator Murkowski for her leadership on this issue. As a result of her hard work and determination, this important legislation is one step closer to becoming law and preserving America’s outdoor heritage,” added Cox.

The nation’s 15 million hunters spent $38.3 billion in 2011, helping to create 680,000 jobs. Sportsmen and women contribute another $1.6 billion annually to conservation through license and permitting fees and charitable donations.

Key provisions of the legislation include:

Hunting, Fishing and Recreational Shooting Protection – This important provision clarifies that ammunition, ammunition components, and fishing equipment are exempt from regulation by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Toxic Substances Control Act. This provision is necessary because anti-hunting extremist groups have filed multiple petitions with the EPA to ban fishing sinkers and the use of lead ammunition for all purposes, not just hunting. Those petitions have been rejected, but the groups use the administrative rejections as an excuse to sue the agency in pursuit of the same restrictions.

Recreational Self Protection – This section would give law-abiding gun owners more access to carry firearms on land managed by the Army Corps of Engineers.

Making Public Lands Public – This section requires that 1.5% of the annual Land and Water Conservation Fund goes toward securing access for sportsmen to public lands that are currently either landlocked or otherwise significantly restricted.

Target Practice and Marksmanship Training Support Act – This section makes more funds available to state fish and wildlife agencies for the development of shooting ranges.

Bows Transported through National Parks – This provision will allow bows to be transported across national park lands. Currently, only firearms can be legally transported, which poses a practical problem for bow hunters who want to legally hunt on Forest Service or Bureau of Land Management lands, but must cross National Park Service lands in order to do so.

Pakistani Teachers Arm Themselves after Taliban School Massacre

Back in November, we reported on Israeli Public Security Minister, Yitzhak Aharonovitch, announcing a decision to relax the rules governing the carrying of firearms in the wake of the murder of four Orthodox Jewish men and a police officer in a West Jerusalem Temple by terrorists armed with knives, axes and a gun. We noted then that Israeli officials had rightly recognized the protective benefits of “good guys” with guns.

This week, we report on a similar response to another outrageous terrorist attack, this one in Pakistan.

On December 16, Taliban terrorists slaughtered 150 innocent children and teachers at the Army Public School and Degree College in Peshawar. The educators could offer no real resistance as the six-hour ordeal unfolded into the deadliest terrorist attack in Pakistani history. The unarmed teachers were essentially defenseless against their attackers, and that reality is prompting change.

As reported by the Washington Times, Government authorities in northwest Pakistan have now granted teachers permission to carry concealed firearms in schools in response to the attack.

According to the Times story, Mushtuq Ghani, the higher education minister in the Khyber Paktunkhwa provincial government based in Peshawar, said the Cabinet supports the arming of teachers as a logical step after the December rampage.

Mr. Ghani noted that the police are stretched too thin to provide a first line of defense to the region’s nearly 50,000 schools. Ghani suggested that armed teachers could at least potentially hold off gunmen until reinforcements arrived.

The story further reports that a local police force has started basic firearm training sessions for teachers interested in learning how to use firearms, and approximately 20 female teachers have already received training from Inspector Rozia Altaf.

“The tragedy of December 16 has emboldened these women,” Altaf said. “Most of them were mothers and they were helpless then — they will be never helpless again.”

A teacher at the Frontier College for Women said she and 10 other women at her school have received firearms training. When she was asked whether she felt confident of killing a terrorist at her school, she replied, “Yes. Whoever kills innocents, God willing I will shoot them.”

The Associated Press reported that some teachers, licensed and trained to carry firearms, have already begun bringing them to school. Meenadar Khan, a teacher at Government High School in Peshawar, is one of them. He said teachers at his school met to discuss the government’s plan and agreed it would be good to have armed teachers in the event of an emergency to “defend our school and kids.”

The people of Peshawar Province faced implacable evil on December 16. Fortunately, they will not be defenseless should it strike again.

One second you’re rolling up on what appears to be a motorist with a car that’s having mechanical trouble, and the next you’re on the ground with multiple gunshot wounds, anchored there by a broken femur and trying to reload your handgun with a broken wrist…because the mag’s worth of knock-it-off you’ve already sent in the bad guy’s direction didn’t penetrate the vehicle he’s hiding in and as far as you know he still has his gun and it’s still got bullets in it.

The general public misunderstands a great deal about the use of lethal force, but I find that one of the hardest aspects to get them to realize is the sheer speed of life and death. When a pre-teen with an airsoft gun was shot by police in Cleveland someone asked me how on earth police could “kill” a “child” two seconds after encountering him. “TWO SECONDS!!!”, she emphasized.

…Cuomo, described by associates last month as “obsessed with fear’’ in the wake of Bharara’s charges against then-Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver (D-Manhattan), “seems to be going out of his way more than usual to pick fights with people, and it was really weird,’’ Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin (R-Rensselaer) told The Post.

“The sense is that Cuomo’s actions are related to strain from Bharara’s investigation,’’ Mc­Laugh­lin continued.

A liberal friend pained over the rampant failures of liberal government makes an observation: “Barack Obama and Bill de Blasio are both learning to shave on our whiskers.”

The image is priceless, the insight wise. Their lack of experience in how the world works, and their ignorance of such basic knowledge as meeting a payroll, are proving to be fatal flaws for our president and mayor.

It is no coincidence they share a message of transformational change. Both are guided by ideological faith and are excellent campaigners, but show no operational ability to turn words into deeds.

Quanell X,  the head of Houston’s New Black Panther Party and one of the agitators who has gone after everyone from George Zimmerman to Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, has almost always sided against the police in officer-involved shootings of suspects.

He is now singing a different tune after personally going through “shoot/no shoot” training with the Missouri City Police Department.

X played the role of a law enforcement officer responding to calls in a number of different scenarios, and had to chose whether to use his gun (a realistic training weapon that fires man-marker rounds), a taser, or not to employ any force at all.

Eric Holder: Gun lobby (NRA) ‘simply won’ by killing Sandy Hook reforms

The inability to enact new gun safety laws after the Sandy Hook school shooting ranks as “the single failure” of his tenure, Atty. Gen. Eric Holder said in a televised interview.

“The gun lobby simply won, you know?” Holder said in an interview with MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry which aired Sunday. In the interview, Holder reflected on his more than six years as the nation’s top law enforcement officer.

Holder has called his visit to the site of the December 2012 massacre of 20 first-graders and six educators the worst day he had in office. In the aftermath of the shooting, President Obama appointed Vice President Joe Biden to lead a task force that would make recommendations for how to avoid such tragedies.

…Not only did Bloomberg call for taking away Americans’ right to arms, as he usually does, but this time, he suggested targeting a specific group: minority males between the ages of 15 to 25.

The former mayor claimed that the demographic is responsible for 95 percent of all murders.

“These kids think they’re going to get killed anyway because all their friends are getting killed,” he said. “They just don’t have any long-term focus or anything. It’s a joke to have a gun. It’s a joke to pull a trigger.”

Well, it seems Minnesota’s largest school district is discussing screening high school students for depression and anxiety in the classroom.

“As part of a state grant to improve mental health services,” notes this CBS Minnesota article, “Anoka-Hennepin schools could offer a screening as soon as next fall. Dr. Nita Kumar, a mental-health consultant for the district, said Friday that the idea is to get students to talk about something they may hide from their parents or not even understand what is happening.”

Gun bills return to CO legislature as symbolic effort

Returning bills aimed at expanding gun owners’ rights, that will most likely fail to become law this year, serve an almost symbolic purpose.

Five House bills designed to either expand rights of gun owners or repeal gun-control legislation from previous sessions died in the Democrat-controlled State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee on Monday.

Two Senate bills of the same ilk passed out of the Republican-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee the same night.

Mostly likely those two bills will make it out of the Senate, go into a House committee and stay there, postponed indefinitely, said John Straayer, a political science professor at Colorado State University on Friday.

An Unprecedented Constitutional Crisis (By GOAs Tim Macy)

What if a man ascended to the presidency who was so ruthless in his desire to transform the United States to his bidding that the restraints of the Constitution became irrelevant to him?

What if his sycophantic Attorney General excused his law-breaking, while his regulators sought to destroy his political opposition?

What if his vicar in the Senate obliterated the Senate rules in order to pack the courts with toadies and go-fers who existed to do the President’s bidding?

We have rarely witnessed such horrible scenarios in our country’s 239-year history — and the resultant crisis threatens to tear our country apart.

If tax-cheating appointees like Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner didn’t give us an indication of what was coming, the ObamaCare “sausage-making” told us what Barack Obama was about.  One by one, senators were ushered into a back room to be given their bribes for supporting legislation which, for the first time in American history, forced Americans to spend thousands of dollars on corrupt politically correct “insurance” policies which fundamentally violated their religious beliefs.

Using fraudulent budget math which landed Bernie Madoff in prison with a 150-year sentence, Obama deliberately lied to the American people about the cost of insurance, their ability to keep the policies they liked, and the fact that middle income Americans were being bled dry in order to fund other people’s medical care.

Having slammed through ObamaCare with no transparency using parliamentary gimmickry, it was no surprise that the resulting creation was a creaking Rube Goldberg machine.

No matter.  Obama simply ignored the parts of the law which were inconvenient to him, while demanding that the “little people” comply with their obligations, to the letter — or face massive fines.

But if Barack Obama acted like a despot when he controlled Congress, that was nothing compared to his lawlessness after he lost control.

When his politicized Internal Revenue Service was caught trying to destroy his political opposition, Obama stonewalled and used the “dog ate my homework” excuse.  Thus, he argued, an Executive Branch which could suck up meta-data on every phone call in the world somehow couldn’t locate e-mails that, not coincidentally, would have incriminated it.

Obama proceeded to go to war with entire nations without constitutional authorization.  And the result is a conflagration of new terrorist regimes, fallen allies, and hostage beheadings and executions.  It is hard to believe that a President intent on destroying U.S. interests in the world could have done a worse job of safeguarding them.

Not surprisingly, Obama was twice repudiated by the American people, who took both Houses of Congress away from him.

Again, no matter.  If Congress refused to pass his immigration legislation, he would enact it by executive fiat.  If Congress frustrated his efforts to exploit a horrific tragedy in order to pass gun control, he would craft 23 “executive actions” to achieve the same thing.  If the law barred him from demanding sales information from gun dealers or creating a national gun registry, he would do it anyway.

After all, wasn’t it Richard Nixon who said to David Frost: “If the President does it, that means it’s not illegal.”  And nothing happened to him, right?

So we have come full-circle.  A President who places himself above the law and above the Constitution.  And a groveling court system and Attorney General who exist to allow him to do so.

Fortunately, what goes around, comes around.  And there is every evidence that the American people are getting sick and tired of Obama’s lawlessness.  And, with a new administration will come the ability to summarily repeal all of Obama’s unlawful actions — in one fell swoop — at the same time as an independent counsel examines fraud, lies, and illegality in connection with criminal charges.

Perhaps, as Richard Nixon found out, the Constitution is a little more resilient than Obama imagines.

Democrat Lawmakers Fail To Provide Factual Support For “High Capacity Magazine Clip” Bill

A small group of Democrat lawmakers and anti-liberty activists are still attempting to exploit the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary to push for more restrictions on your liberty:

Newtown activists on Thursday helped introduce the first gun safety bill in this Congress, officially kicking off the gun control debate on Capitol Hill.

The bill would ban large capacity ammunition clips for everyone but military members and law enforcement officers. It was introduced by Rep. Elizabeth Esty, D-5th District, in the House and Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., in the Senate.

The bill’s proponents characterized the legislation as a needed safety measure, like seat belts or airbags, that would save lives, not only those threatened by a mass murderer, but also police who are often outgunned by criminals.

Eight states, including Connecticut and the District of Columbia, ban high-capacity magazine clips. But congressional Republicans have resisted efforts for a federal ban, and for any new federal gun restrictions.

Dave Stowe, vice chairman of the Newtown Action Alliance and the Newtown Foundation, insisted there should be bipartisan support for the bill, saying, “What I see is an issue that does not take sides.”

Yes, the group actually called them “magazine clips” in their press release, and the clueless Northeastern media regurgitated the term and the group’s falsified claims without a bit of fact-checking or introspection.
