This Weekend Is “Illinois Family Security Weekend”


 

SPECIAL ALERT
THIS WEEKEND IS “ILLINOIS FAMILY SECURITY WEEKEND”
PROTECT YOUR FAMILY – PREPARE FOR THE WORST

The closing months of 2015 provide chilling proof of just how successful Obama has been in engineering the decline of the USA. In less than 8 years, the USA has gone from world power to whimpering “also ran.” There is no better illustration of this sad state of affairs than the happenings of the last several weeks.
In October, cultists bombed a Russian airliner killing more than 200 people. In November, cultists bombed and shot more than 100 people in attacks on Paris’ entertainment district. In response to these attacks, Europe banded together under the leadership of President Putin to deliver a staggering military attack on cultist strongholds.
Earlier this month, cultists attacked a Christmas party in San Bernardino – killing 14 and wounding at least a dozen more. In response, Obama got on TV to tell law-abiding citizens to give up their guns and to lecture Americans about how they have to do a better job of making friends.
Get the picture here?
If you think that Obama is capable, or even willing to faithfully discharge his duty to protect this nation and its people from cultist attacks, you are sorely mistaken. That means that the safety and security of you and your family is totally up to you. Are you prepared for that mission?
Your Illinois State Rifle Association has declared the weekend of December 12-13 as “Illinois Family Security Weekend.” The purpose of this declaration is to emphasize the dire situation our nation is in and the necessity for all good citizens to be prepared for swift and devastating changes to our way of life. The Illinois State Rifle Association is asking all Illinois citizens to make a pledge to themselves and their families to spend some time this weekend preparing for the unthinkable, yet inevitable horrors that could be inflicted on our nation at any moment.

Key things that you and your family need to be working on this weekend:
1) Develop a master plan for family security
a) Assess your home for security weaknesses. Put yourself in your enemy’s shoes and ask yourself what would be the best way for your enemy to inflict injury on your home and family. Develop a plan of action for remedying security weaknesses.
b) Assess your neighborhood for security weaknesses. Anticipate how topographical, architectural or other features of your neighborhood would either aid or hinder an attack. Develop a plan of action for any eventualities.
c) Develop a survival plan for family members who may be caught in an attack on a public place. Train family members to remain situationally aware while in public, to identify and monitor at least two means of egress, and to identify and assess behavior exhibited by others in the area. Train family members to act in a clear-headed and directed manner when under attack.
d) Develop a multi-tiered family communications plan to be used in the event of emergency. Identify and train in the use of primary and alternative means of communication so that all family members are effectively aware of the status of all other family members.
e) Designate at least two emergency rendezvous points to which family members should retreat in the event of serious emergencies. One rendezvous point should be located well away from urban areas.
f) Assemble “bug out” bags for each family member that contain basic survival necessities, weapons, and at least 5-days’ worth of any medications prescribed to family members.
g) Develop and stick to a drill schedule for your family security plan.

2) Assemble required weaponry
a) If you and your family are not already adequately armed, go out to your local gun shop this weekend and acquire the tools you need to ensure survival. Avoid purchasing firearms chambered for exotic or uncommon calibers. Stick to common calibers such as .223, 9mm, and 12 gauge. It’s also important to acquire edged weapons such as tomahawks, folding knives, hunting knives and a small saw.
b) Enroll in appropriate weapons training not only for the weapons you and your family own, but for common weapons types that you may recover from your enemy.
c) Develop and execute a follow-on weapons training plan for you and your family. Schedule regular visits to the range for marksmanship practice.

3) Don’t overlook the importance of physical training. Under terrorist attack, your survival may depend on how physically fit you are. So, make sure your family security plan includes adequate time in the gym preparing for rigorous physical challenges.

4) Other things worth considering:
a) Keep cash on hand – plastic may not work during times of emergency.
b) Make sure that your vehicle fuel tank is always full as you never know how far you may have to drive to escape a threat.
c) Be sure to have your family trained in Red Cross First Aid/CPR.
d) Have a heart-to-heart talk with family members about how serious the issue of survival is. Be sure that they know not to be distracted by horrible things they may see. Drill them on the fact that their survival is paramount to all other concerns. They need to understand that the time may come where they have to kill others in order to ensure their own survival. They need to understand that this is not TV or the movies.
Probably the most dangerous frame of mind for you at this moment would be a state of denial. The San Bernardino attack is a sobering reminder that cultists are here in our country waiting for the green light to attack. Unlike 9-11, future attacks will probably not involve high profile targets like office buildings. The cultists know that they are most effective when they attack soft, familiar targets frequented by everyday Americans. Your community pool, your grocery store, your church, your town’s July 4th Parade are all ripe for the picking as far as the cultists are concerned. From a practical standpoint, future attacks cannot be predicted or prevented. However, that does not mean that you cannot be prepared. So, take some time this weekend to start the process of preparing your family for whatever the cultists may throw at us.

We should stop all illegal immigration and refugees from coming here/ our safety and the cost needs to be priority

I don’t understand the logic of not stopping all immigration into the U.S. until we can have a plan that assimilates these people into our society. The way things work now we open the borders to everyone on an illegal basis and some the traditional legal way, and vetting is not done. Refugees seek a safe place, but when the costs for medical, housing, food, and expenses break the back of the taxpayer we have a problem. When an immigrant or refugee gets better benefits than a citizen we have a problem. Our jails are full of immigrant criminals, and Americans are stuck with the bill.riot in Fergunson
The Biggest problem is when terrorists  sneak in with the refugees. They want to kill us and have no intention of assimilating. They want us to supply them benefits. They are not thankful and see Americans as infidels to convert or kill. If they have allegiance to a belief, Country, or philosophy contrary to the U.S. They should not be allowed in. Letting them in is suicide.

Theodore Roosevelt’s ideas on  Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.
In the first  place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good  faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be  treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to  discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or  origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet  an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided  allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else  also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the  American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the  English language.. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is  a loyalty to the American people.’
Theodore Roosevelt  1907

Nearly Two-Thirds of Likely GOP Primary Voters Back Trump’s Muslim Ban

Almost two-thirds of likely 2016 Republican primary voters favor Donald Trump’s call to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the U.S., while more than a third say it makes them more likely to vote for him.

Those are some of the findings from a Bloomberg Politics/Purple Strategies PulsePoll, an online survey conducted Tuesday, that shows support at 37 percent among all likely general-election voters for the controversial proposal put forward by the Republican front-runner.

“We believe these numbers are made up of some people who are truly expressing religious bigotry and others who are fearful about terrorism and are willing to do anything they think might make us safer,” Doug Usher, who runs polling for Washington-based Purple Strategies, said in his analysis of his poll’s findings. “This indicates that, despite some conventional wisdom expressed in the last 48 hours, this is unlikely to hurt Trump at least in the primary campaign.”

Support for Trump’s proposal remains virtually unchanged even after voters are told both sides of the argument. On one side, they were told that “leaders from across the political spectrum have condemned this policy” as one that will make the U.S. “less safe by alienating the allies we need to fight ISIS.” They were also told that Trump has said it is needed until more is known about the threat and that the nation “cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in jihad.”

 
When voters were provided with this additional information, support for the proposal remains essentially unchanged, with 64 percent of likely Republican primary voters saying they favor the idea. That includes 52 percent who say they strongly support the proposal.
After being told about the idea, 37 percent of likely Republican primary voters say it makes them more likely to support the billionaire real estate mogul, while 16 percent say less and 46 percent say it has no impact.

Among all likely general-election voters, including Democrats and independents, 18 percent say it makes them more likely to back Trump, while 33 percent say less likely and 44 percent say it has no impact.

While Trump has considerable strength among likely Republican primary voters, the survey shows weakness for him in a general election. Including all likely voters, 33 percent view him favorably and 64 percent unfavorably.

That’s a worse favorability rating than President Barack Obama, who was at 51 percent favorable and 47 percent unfavorable in this survey. It’s also worse than Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, who is seen favorably by 45 percent and unfavorably by 52 percent of likely general-election voters.
Those with less education are more likely to be strongly supportive of Trump’s Muslim proposal, with 34 percent of those without a college education feeling that way compared to 22 percent of those who do have a college education. Older voters, evangelical Christians, and whites are also more likely than the overall general election population to favor Trump’s plan.

The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points on the full sample and higher on subgroups, such as likely Republican primary voters, where it’s 7 percentage points.

AGAINST THE CURRENT with Dan Proft & Bethany McLean

AGAINST THE CURRENT

ATC: Dan Proft & Bethany McLean

What drove the housing market crash in 2008? Is today’s federal housing policy leading us back to the same place we were when the bubble burst? In what form do the GSEs, Fannie and Freddie, exist today and how does that impact home ownership in the US? Who regulates the regulators? How do we stop another “government-sponsored Enron”?

There is no one better positioned to answer these questions than Bethany McLean. McLean is the co-author of “The Smartest Guys in the Room,” which told the story of the rise and fall of Enron. She is a columnist for Fortune magazine and a contributing editor for Vanity Fair. Her new book, “Shaky Ground,” is a must-read primer on the housing market, what happened and what did not and what is happening today that should not be and what is not happening that should be. Dan Proft sits down with author, columnist and CNBC contributor Bethany McLean in this edition of Against The Current.
