SITUATIONAL AWARENESS 101

MaureenO,
With todays events, both at home and abroad, I bumped this thread.
If something looks wrong, it may be wrong. Let LEOs know, using prudence and caution. Considering the puerile clueless confidence undermining statements of the Feds today, I would consider letting both a local LEO and a Fed type know of any concerns.
For various reasons, the bad guys are getting active.
Any new viewers of this thread might consider looking through past posts for tips, advice and all.

SS, you're correct. If it feels wrong, it requires your attention.

Some things have occurred lately that require our extra vigilance--NOT PANIC--so keep your heads on swivel.

I agree, strudel nut.
In my opinion,in the next few days, we(the good guys) may take some hits for our beliefs in free speech. Some violence may have already happened and the gov/toady media are covering it up. As on 9/11, it is not just our troops that are in danger, but also the regular folks, working and living a peaceful life. No one had burned a Koran before 9/11 and they died just as dead.

There are indicators that something wicked this way comes today like there were pre-9/11. We, as a people, couldn't connect the dots since our Intel community was not as sophisticated then nor could any of us in America imagine such an evil scenario.

We didn't think that way. Now, too many of us have gone overboard with the conspiracy theories, missing vital pieces, or become overwhelmed and forget to see the good in our lives--all of which works against us.

Whoever "stickied" this thread, thank you.

Lessee here.
Interpol is on alert.

FBI is on alert.

Now I understand the Q'ran burning in Fla has been called off.
We will see if the Muzzys respect that and graciously don't attack. I doubt it. Stay alert!!

As dd can tell you and a couple others here who have done the training the VAST MAJORITY of people do NOT SEE ANYTING ABOVE EYE LEVEL.....



NOBODY LOOKS UP!!!!!


Think about it when you are out walking.....

CONSCIOUSLY LOOK UP.

EVEN AT WORK.....se what color the corners of the ceiling are...I'll bet you haven't seen them in YEARS....
Years ago, I lived in a converted apartment in the second floor of a large downtown store /warehouse. On hot days I'd sit out on the ledge to cool off a bit. Calmly called the police while watching some local bad boys prying open the parking meters and gave a play by play until the good guys showed up to catch them. Later that summer, I watched a guy starting to crawl inside a convertable with the top down in preparation of stealing a radio. In a moment of humor, I simply cleared my throat loudly, and the look on his face when he looked up was priceless.

Yeah, looking UP is more important than you believe. Ask any Deer.

just a small voice, reviewing the past

Bump again.
Robert Anton Wilson "Everything is Under Control"

worth re-reading, then reflect Castro trainer, Alberto Ernesto Bayo, hired by whom? Fast forward, POTUS. Strange tales still not open,recent history, PLUS re: CIA/DEA "pass on pot" woodstock, easy rider, maine opening borders @ 1976, "any quantity" misdemeanor, (McKernan), KENYA farms supplied, @ 30-40%? US supply, what tribe? what family? Obama too young, but money made, by way of SDS/Weather/High times/ major crews, landing back side of Cuba, forwarded north on North to southward runs are history. Final load 100 tons reputed still on board following drop off. Castro did shoot 6 generals involved, question of authorization does exist..

A few weeks ago, was told "There are some questions you should not be asking" in regards these matters. Supposedly FBI called, claimed to have my file, would not answer question of date first entry... Call not this subject related

Google has wiped airport bust, @ 1978, Twitchell airport, Auburn Maine?, cocaine, Snowe family aircraft. Should still be on file archives Lewiston sun Journal

Re-union, Watergate folks, Millbrook NY estate(also LSD, Grateful Dead startup, equipment), Easy rider folks,, with porn poublisher Flynt....Studio 54, NY, following tugboat Cutler ME Bust?..... WHAT, NO BOOK?

These are questions, I have not answers.

Wakey, wakey folks.

19 y/o Somali born male tries to blow up people at a Christmas celebration yesterday.

Heads up, the holidays are here. And we're not just talking situational awareness in the malls [which some avoid by shopping online], but ANY public gathering.

This guy was after families. Learn about car bombs.

If your gut gives you the willies about an event, listen to it.
DON"T ATTEND!!!

I intend to stay away from big shopping malls and huge sales this season. I got sucked into going to the local Wallyworld, after midnight, on early black Friday by DW. This store was selling TVs for some ridiculously low price and there were people actually camping out in the store!! Back packs everywhere. I had the willies going in and I persuaded DW to simply get what we needed and get out!!! I was happy to leave that parking lot!!

A friend of mine works in a hospital. She told us last week that all you have to do to breech security there is to walk in carrying a tool box or ladder and be dressed like a construction worker. No one pays any attention to you. There are so many things that we need to be aware of all of the time.

I feel the same way about that IKEA store over in Chandler. I've been in it twice, and almost felt panicky. I will never go back.

Sign of the times

As a small town pawnbroker, that lives in the country, and has a son in Law Enforcement, I get the latest news of the jail daily and the crimes being committed in our county. (Local media blackout on home invasions if possible)
Last night as I was crossing the drive from the woodshed with a load of firewood for the night, I suddenly noticed I was "scanning" my own front and back yard as I made my way back to the door. I wonder if it was as a result of being informed of the day to day crimes being committed daily in my home town or a sense of forbidding due to the direction our society is traveling. Has it come to that point that we must constantly be aware of our surroundings even in our own yards? :scn:

Dozdoats, i read that book in the late 1990's. Been in condition yellow since then, crossed into orange a few times and almost red one time. Pretty dang scarry. I hate living this way but our own "benevolent" fed gov brought us this crap. My family was slow to catch on but they are well on their way. My daughter and granddaughter really suprised my the most. Daughter is red headed and she "is" condition orange maybe even red when it comes down to her family. Anyway I hope we all her never have to cross to red but if it happens I hope that whoever it happens to will be as ready as they can be.

I have found that living in the :arg: mode keeps alot of the :sheep:le and :bhmo: at bay.

Yes. I was at my dining room table on Sunday morning reading the newspaper, as I do every Sunday. I have a large window. I looked up and outside, and it was very cold and rainy. There was a vagrant standing in my yard, not 15 feet from my door! He was old and very skinny and just standing there, looking at my porch. We got a baseball bat and golf club and called the police, who were there in seconds (extremely small town, police just a block away). They were already on there way because someone down the street had already called about him. So, YES, we must be aware of our surroundings, even in our own yards.

I can't keep any arms downstairs because the grandchildren just moved in, and they are toddlers. Scary.

AQ have plans to attack the US over the Christmas season (appears to be homicide bombers) so I suggest we be exceptionally vigilant .

In the rush for remedies following the shooting of Congresswoman Giffords, there are some techniques that can be used without draconian measures.
Situational awareness allows for situational influence and a certain degree of situational control.
One of Rep. Giffords staff was shown discussing his interaction with the alleged shooter immediately prior to the shooting. The words of the staff person show to me that he, the staffer, felt something was wrong(dressed out of place, standoffish manner). There are studies that say that even untrained people can sense when something, someone is wrong. With training, such as Mossad, these senses can be sharpened. Certain types of questions and observation of the responses to questions can be very helpful in preventing an incident. I am not suggesting that 150 million Americans get advance degrees in the psychological arts or be seconded to Mossad for classwork, but rather that some of the Congressional staff be trained and available at such meetings to be a resource to other staffers that have a concern about a person or situation.
Anyone who has had the El Al preflight interview should understand the subject. There is no need to go into specifics here.
