What to Do During Civil Unrest in Your City

civil unrest What to Do During Civil Unrest in Your City

The first three days after a crisis is relativity calm and it can be called a gracious period where people help others and provide a hand up to the less fortunate. Rules are followed and pilfering supplies or looting a grocery store is far from people’s minds at this point. Survivors are thinking in the back of their mind that the authorities (government) are marshalling troops to provide disaster relief.

The chaos caused by the disaster itself can however, pale in comparison to the turmoil that certain citizens themselves can cause after three days or more. Once people realize their government is ill-equipped to handle the situation desperation creeps in. Antagonists and others sense this and begin whipping up crowds with the guise of demanding support from the government when in reality the so-called anarchists simply want to take advantage of the situation. They want to further the notion that government should be abolished, by emphasizing the lack of response thus far. Demonstrations turn into riots.

Demonstrators for the most part do not even know why they are marching; someone is doing their thinking for them. This is mob mentality. Collectively they will destroy buildings, cause physical harm to others and try thwarting any kind of authority and yet, many as individuals would never dream of doing such things. If you do not believe this can happen where you live, remember hurricane Katrina and super storm Sandy, and watch the world news to see the riots and mobs gathering to protest governmental policies. During a crisis many turn to their government for help, and when that help is not forthcoming those same people will turn against their government and then each other.

Prepare Yourself

People panic because they do not know what to do next. If you are prepared for a crisis, you will know what to do next. However, you may be caught up in civil unrest and it may force you to evacuate your community. You may have to relocate within your own city if evacuation to a safe haven outside the city is not possible.

You cannot become trapped on the upper floors of an apartment building. You may experience power disruptions and once you lose electricity, the stairwells and hallways become ambush points. Find a vacant apartment at ground level, and take it over for the time being. You need to be at ground level to escape if looters or others set fire to your building or otherwise make it too dangerous to live there. You need a quick escape route. If the crisis is, city or countrywide many will have already fled so there will be resources you can use for the time being.

Push heavy furniture against entry points and tape or nail nylon or canvas tarps, sheets of plastic or blankets over all windows to slow down an intruder long enough for you to escape. Do not barricade yourself to the point you do not have a way to escape however. You may not be able to stop a determined intruder but you can slow one down enough for you to get away. Unless you are specifically targeted, some if not most looters will move on to an easier target if they meet resistance, so make it difficult for them.

Having emergency supplies means you would not need to venture out, and even if you did, you may find most of the stores are closed or have been looted.

Some Interesting Facts about Riots and Looting

According to eyewitnesses and from police records, food items are the last to be looted during civil unrest (rioting). Drugs specifically pain killers, diapers, alcohol and tobacco products are the first to go and then weapons and ammunition. Food remained on the shelves in some cases untouched for three days or longer during major riots. After four or five days, people begin trying to steal gasoline and even generators along with vehicles. After a few days of venting frustration at the government, rioters will find others to vilify thus, excusing their actions. Retailers and bankers will be next and after four or five days into the civil unrest, you are next on the list.

Protect Yourself

Stay off the streets particularly at night and if you have to venture out do not go near commercial areas because that is where looting and other criminal activity will be most active. Ideally, you will know your neighborhood so you do not become trapped in dead-end alleyways, and you know where all the dead-end or cul-de-sac streets are.

When traveling or evacuating make sure you map out your routes so you do not have to use pedestrian walkways on bridges and that you avoid tunnels and overpasses, as well, to keep from becoming trapped.

Considerations

Prepare for civil unrest just as if you would for any disaster, have adequate supplies of water, food and other essentials and always keep the possibility of evacuation in mind. Make sure every member of the family has a backpack with survival essentials. You may have to leave on foot so prepare for this possibility as well. Successful evacuations only happen if you prepare and leave before there is a mass exodus from the city.

Denver Airport Whistleblower: ‘Underground Tunnels, Structures and Buried Runways Exist’

Rendition by Stu Webb

Rendition by Stu Webb, former construction worker at DIA – 1995

Special Report

Intellihub.com

April 10, 2013

DENVER — Underground tunnels do exist around the world as the longest documented publicly known tunnel is located in New york and is 85.1 miles in length. It was drilled through solid rock in 1945 and is used as a waterway. The “Delaware Aqueduct is the newest of the New York City aqueducts. It takes water from the Rondout Reservoir through the Chelsea Pump Station, the West Branch Reservoir, and the Kensico Reservoir, ending at the Hillview Reservoir in Yonkers, New York.

The aqueduct was constructed between 1939 and 1945, and carries approximately half of the New York City water supply of 1.3 billion US gallons (4,900,000 m3) per day. The Delaware Aqueduct leaks up to 36 million US gallons (140,000 m3) per day. A $1 billion project to repair the leaking is scheduled to begin in January 2013″, according to Wikipedia.

There are many types of tunnels obviously, as some are used for water and some are used for other purposes.

According to Phil Schneider, there are over 132 D.U.M.B.’s that existed around the 1990 era. Most of these bases according to Scheider are linked together via massive dry underground tunnels.  Schneider was an alleged geologist employed by the US Navy’s black Ops sector to help plan and aid in the construction of Deep Underground Military Bases (D.U.M.B.’s) for the government who was later found dead in his apartment after announcing the secret governments plans.

 


Underground Tunnels at DIA

Some now speculate that DIA houses an underground base facility or some type of underground complex, although an airport would be an unusual place to have dry tunnels, some have reported just that. This could also explain why the airport went over $2 billion over budget during construction.

According to Stu Webb, a construction worker employed by a private contractor in the 90′s to work on an underground section of the airport, the construction company told him and other workers at the time that the massive tunnel system they were constructing leading to at least 5 other underground structures on the airport property were for waste water and sewage. However, according to Webb, he quickly caught on that the massive 12′ x 16′ tunnels were for something other than waste water and sewage saying in a later interview that “you could fit specially designed busses in the tunnels, they were that big”.

Webb maintains that five other buildings he’s aware of were constructed under ground at depths ranging from 60-120 feet. These buildings according to a diagram drawn by Webb (shown in the video interview) appear to be to the Northeast of the airports main canvassed terminal section approximately 2.5-3 miles. Webb also notes other important discoveries he made during and after his employment on the airports massive 52 square mile complex.

Webb went on to explain that the tunnels were divided up into many sections. These sections were all contracted to separate contractors to avoid employee suspicion of what the tunnels and underground strictures were actually for.

Webb also stated that there were secret runways that were buried during construction of the airport. These runways were hidden, covered by 4 inches of soil and sit approximately a half of a mile away from the 5 buried buildings or underground structures which then connect to the main section of the airport by way of those secret tunnels Webb worked on. When Webb questioned what the runways were for and why they were being buried he was told that they poured them in the wrong spot and it was a mistake. However, the expense of such an error would be great.  And why would they pour a runway 2.5-3 miles off by mistake?

Webb speculates that the runway will serve as outbound runways in a time of civil unrest as he stated, “there are too many patriots here with guns”, referring to the United States.

According to Webb, there is also an area to the south of the buried buildings about 2.5-3 miles away from the comercial terminal as well where major construction was going on underground for about a 2 year duration. He explained that massive amounts of dirt were kicked up in that area, noting that some type of underground activity was going on durring construction. Webb also notes that the desert has now been restored to its original look as sage brush and other plant and animal life has been restored.

And if all of this seems wild to you it is known that tunnel boring technology exists. In fact, publicly announced technologies can bore up to 19.5 meter wide holes. Wikipedia explains a, “tunnel boring machine (TBM) also known as a “mole”, is a machine used to excavate tunnels with a circular cross section through a variety of soil and rock strata. They can borethrough anything from hard rock to sand. Tunnel diameters can range from a metre (done with micro-TBMs) to 19.25 m to date. Tunnels of less than a metre or so in diameter are typically done using trenchless construction methods or horizontal directional drilling rather than TBMs.”

In fact, there is even a Tunnels and Underground Structures Committee known as TRB AFF60. Their official website states, “The AFF60 Tunneling committee is formed by a group of professionals from tunneling and underground construction industry who have been active in the transportation sector.  Tunneling experts from the owner, designer/engineer, contractors, and academia are members of this committee and in addition to their committee meeting, hold technical sessions and workshops to offer a forum for exchange of ideas and to educate and interface with the experts in the transportation industry.”

Other airports such as Washington’s Dulles International might be experiencing some new modifications along these lines as well. It looks like in most cases private contractors are hired for these projects as they are likely sworn to secrecy and or get hand outs via no bid contracts. A Washington Post writer, Bill Turque pointed out in 2007 that, “Secrecy is not the only issue surrounding the Public-Private Transportation Act of 1995. The law was designed to jump-start expensive road and transit projects by attracting private-sector investment and corporate efficiency to the process. It allows the state to dispense with traditional competitive bidding and select a single private partner to design and build a project for a fixed price and profit.

It hasn’t quite worked that way. The private contractor, Dulles Transit Partners — a construction consortium of Bechtel Inc. and Washington Group International — has put no money into construction of the extension’s first phase, which would run from just east of the West Falls Church Metro station to Wiehle Avenue in Reston by 2012. The consortium will be reimbursed for the $15 million it has spent on preliminary engineering work if it reaches an agreement with the state.

Other public-private projects completed or underway, including Route 28 interchanges in Fairfax County and a portion of Route 288 in Powhatan and Goochland counties, also involve little or no private money. The Dulles extension, the first rail project proposed under the public-private law, would be funded entirely with federal, state and local dollars, including more than $1 billion from Fairfax landowners, businesses along the Dulles Toll Road and motorists who use the road.

“There are some real significant issues of secrecy, accountability, conflict of interest and failure to protect the public trust,” said Stewart Schwartz, executive director of the Coalition for Smarter Growth, which advocates clustered development around transit stations.”

Turque demonstrates essentially how private contractors are utilized.

However, let’s get back to the Denver International Airport in Colorado. One thing is for sure, there is a massive pile of dirt on DIA’s property, and this isn’t the only airport with a pyramid on it, but that’s for another article. Google earth shows this massive pile of dirt that according to Avalon (an Intellihub.com writer/researcher) measures by the following dimensions:

 

  • Pyramid Base: Nearly 2500′ x 2500′
  • Height: Approximately 500 feet
  • Approximately 0.00283³ miles of earth

 

Other unconfirmed reports say there is possible a 4.5 cubic mile base and or underground city that exists directly under the airport.

It makes you wonder. This massive pile of dirt definitely came from somewhere.

There are also ventilation shafts that are large enough to fit a jumbo jet in on the property and a heavy amount of electromagnetic energy is reported to be present. Some speculate these are reactor ventilation shafts.

There have also been unconfirmed reports of acres of chain link fenced in cages toped with barb-wire pointing inward somewhere under the facility. The cages are arranged in a concentration camp/FEMA camp style fashion according to the reports.

Other unconfirmed reports indicate that there is a section of tunnel under the airport that is forbidden to go is as a mysterious infectious mold exists and could be a potential threat to human life.

Top Economic Advisers Forecast War and Unrest

Kyle Bass, Martin Armstrong, Larry Edelson, Charles Nenner, James Dines, Nouriel Roubini, Jim Rogers, Marc Faber and Jim Rickards Warn of War

We’re already at war in numerous countries all over the world.

But top economic advisers warn that economic factors could lead to a new world war.

Kyle Bass writes:

Trillions of dollars of debts will be restructured and millions of financially prudent savers will lose large percentages of their real purchasing power at exactly the wrong time in their lives. Again, the world will not end, but the social fabric of the profligate nations will be stretched and in some cases torn. Sadly, looking back through economic history, all too often war is the manifestation of simple economic entropy played to its logical conclusionWe believe that war is an inevitable consequence of the current global economic situation.

Martin Armstrong writes this week:

CycleOfWar-2014

We will be updating the Cycle of War. Obviously, it is time once again. Especially since that model also hit to the day 3 times in a row.

Similarly, Larry Edelson wrote an email to subscribers entitled “What the “Cycles of War” are saying for 2013″, which states:

Since the 1980s, I’ve been studying the so-called “cycles of war” — the natural rhythms that predispose societies to descend into chaos, into hatred, into civil and even international war.

I’m certainly not the first person to examine these very distinctive patterns in history. There have been many before me, notably, Raymond Wheeler, who published the most authoritative chronicle of war ever, covering a period of 2,600 years of data.

However, there are very few people who are willing to even discuss the issue right now. And based on what I’m seeing, the implications could be absolutely huge in 2013.

Former Goldman Sachs technical analyst Charles Nenner – who has made some big accurate calls, and counts major hedge funds, banks, brokerage houses, and high net worth individuals as clients – saysthere will be “a major war starting at the end of 2012 to 2013”, which will drive the Dow to 5,000.

Veteran investor adviser James Dines forecast a war is epochal as World Wars I and II, starting in the Middle East.

Nouriel Roubini has warned of war with Iran. And when Roubini was asked:

Where does this all lead us? The risk in your view is of another Great Depression. But even respectable European politicians are talking not just an economic depression but possibly even worse consequences over the next decade or so. Bearing European history in mind, where does this take us?

He responded:

In the 1930s, because we made a major policy mistake, we went through financial instability, defaults, currency devaluations, printing money, capital controls, trade wars, populism, a bunch of radical, populist, aggressive regimes coming to power from Germany to Italy to Spain to Japan, and then we ended up with World War II.

Now I’m not predicting World War III but seriously, if there was a global financial crisis after the first one, then we go into depression: the political and social instability in Europe and other advanced economies is going to become extremely severe. And that’s something we have to worry about.

Billionaire investor Jim Rogers notes:

A continuation of bailouts in Europe could ultimately spark another world war, says international investor Jim Rogers.

***

“Add debt, the situation gets worse, and eventually it just collapses. Then everybody is looking for scapegoats. Politicians blame foreigners, and we’re in World War II or World War whatever.”

Marc Faber says that the American government will start new wars in response to the economic crisis:

We’re in the middle of a global currency war – i.e. a situation where nations all compete to devalue their currencies the most in order to boost exports. And Brazilian president-elect Rousseff said in 2010:

The last time there was a series of competitive devaluations … it ended in world war two.

Jim Rickards agrees:

Currency wars lead to trade wars, which often lead to hot wars. In 2009, Rickards participated in the Pentagon’s first-ever “financial” war games. While expressing confidence in America’s ability to defeat any other nation-state in battle, Rickards says the U.S. could get dragged into “asymmetric warfare,” if currency wars lead to rising inflation and global economic uncertainty.

As does Jim Rogers:

Trade wars always lead to wars.

And given that many influential economists wrongly believe that war is good for the economy … many are overtly or quietly pushing for war.

Moreover, former Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan said that the Iraq war was really about oil , and former Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill says that Bush planned the Iraq war before 9/11. And seethis and this. If that war was for petroleum, other oil-rich countries might be invaded as well.

And the American policy of using the military to contain China’s growing economic influence – and of considering economic rivalry to be a basis for war – are creating a tinderbox.

Finally, multi-billionaire investor Hugo Salinas Price says:

What happened to [Libya’s] Mr. Gaddafi, many speculate the real reason he was ousted was that he was planning an all-African currency for conducting trade. The same thing happened to him that happened to Saddam because the US doesn’t want any solid competing currency out there vs the dollar. You know Gaddafi was talking about a golddinar.

Indeed, senior CNBC editor John Carney noted:

Is this the first time a revolutionary group has created a central bank while it is still in the midst of fighting the entrenched political power? It certainly seems to indicate how extraordinarily powerful central bankers have become in our era.

Robert Wenzel of Economic Policy Journal thinks the central banking initiative reveals that foreign powers may have a strong influence over the rebels.

This suggests we have a bit more than a ragtag bunch of rebels running around and that there are some pretty sophisticated influences. “I have never before heard of a central bank being created in just a matter of weeks out of a popular uprising,” Wenzel writes.

Indeed, some say that recent wars have really been about bringing all countries into the fold of Western central banking.

Many Warn of Unrest

Numerous economic organizations and economists also warn of crash-induced unrest, including:
