10 Tips for Surviving Martial Law When It Hits
In the ever-increasing police state in which we now live, one can never be too careful about planing for what the future may bring.

UNITED STATES (INTELLIHUB) — Have you ever thought about what you would do if martial law was declared in America? Surprisingly most people haven’t, however it should be a concern to people as the police state in is now running rampant, it’s totally out of control. It’s a whole new world out there on the “battlefield”, i.e. American soil, after the implementation of the National Detention Authorization Act (NDAA).
Most Police forces in the U.S. have become now Federalized under new laws and terrorism provisions implemented after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on America via the P.A.T.R.I.O.T. Act, signed into law by former U.S. President George W. Bush during his failed presidency.
In fact, a good number of police departments across the country have even engaged in training exercises with the U.S. military showing their ill intentions for the American people. And to top it off, a good percentage of police departments have acquired armored militarized vehicles, essentially tanks, for their Special Weapons and Tactics (S.W.A.T.) divisions. These heavily armored vehicles are in some cases are designed to withstand blasts from Improvised Explosive Devises (IEDs) and have no business on the public streets of America.
I know, right about now you are asking yourself, why do I need to know any of this — long story short, it could save your life.
Also realize that like any situation, if martial law were to be declared you would first want to size up the situation, affirming the severity and nature of the threat. There are many reasons martial law can be declared. So depending on the severity of the matter you may decide whether you want to stick it out play cool and remain low profile and obey, or whether you need to take more aggressive measure by possibly bugging-out to a remote location as they did in the Hollywood film Red Dawn.
For aeons the world has dealt with tyrannical oppressors in power. These oligarchs have sought and still to this day seek to control the masses in any and every way possible. They want to micromanage every aspect of our lives, from before birth to death as we are beneath them. We are the “useless eaters” in their book so to speak, the sheeple. And one thing is for sure, history shows us a pattern so it’s better to be ready when they finally drop the hammer, initiating martial law in America.
Tip #1 — Anticipate Martial Law — Be Ready
Over time, incrementally, the U.S. Government has been steadily moving toward grasping full and entire control of the chemically lobotomized and in some cases zombified populace, in strive of easily maintainable human management techniques as sustainability has become a new factor in recent years. Globalists such as Bill Gates and Al Gore have even jumped onto the bandwagon. These power-player types like to use the mechanics of the U.S. Government to persuade, move and manipulate their ideas into fruition. These personality types want to even go as far as trying to separate the family at all costs, by totally conditioning us using indoctrination methods in our public school systems, on the T.V. and in the press. In fact, even the daily school schedule is designed to keep the kids away from the parents as much as possible. The system wants to allow no bond between children and their parents, essentially deploying military-like tactics onto the masses.
However, despite all of the predictive programming and propaganda spewing forth, one must realize the track record of history. Take a look at Adolf Hitler for example, the man was mad. He intentionally had his minions set fire to the Reichstag Building on Feb. 27th, in the year 1933, to usher in a new wave of security in Nazi Germany, one that would watch the citizens within the country, not the real threats from outside. To understand the concept of this we need not even look further than open-source information which actually admits some details of Hitler’s twisted “false flag” operation, one reminisce to the more recent Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on America.
Wikipedia explains just how pivotal this “false flag” event was in 20th century history reading, “At 21:25 (UTC +1), a Berlin fire station received an alarm call that the Reichstag building, the assembly location of the German Parliament, was ablaze. The fire started in the Session Chamber, and, by the time the police and firemen arrived, the main Chamber of Deputies was engulfed in flames.
The police conducted a thorough search inside the building and found Marinus van der Lubbe, a young, Dutch council communist and unemployed bricklayer who had recently arrived in Germany, ostensibly to carry out political activities. The fire was used as evidence by the Nazis that the Communists were beginning a plot against the German government. Van der Lubbe and four Communist leaders were subsequently arrested. Adolf Hitler, who was sworn in as Chancellor of Germany four weeks before, on 30 January, urged President Paul von Hindenburg to pass an emergency decree to counter the “ruthless confrontation of the Communist Party of Germany”. With civil liberties suspended, the government instituted mass arrests of Communists, including all of the Communist parliamentary delegates. With their bitter rival Communists gone and their seats empty, the National Socialist German Workers Party went from being a plurality party to the majority; subsequent elections confirmed this position and thus allowed Hitler to consolidate his with the Nazis eager to uncover Comintern complicity. In early March 1933, three men were arrested who were to play pivotal roles during the Leipzig Trial, known also as the “Reichstag Fire Trial”: Bulgarians Georgi Dimitrov, Vasil Tanev and Blagoi Popov. The Bulgarians were known to the Prussian police as senior Comintern operatives, but the police had no idea how senior they were: Dimitrov was head of all Comintern operations in Western Europe.
Historians disagree as to whether Van der Lubbe acted alone, as he said, to protest the condition of the German working class or whether the arson was planned and ordered by the Nazis, then dominant in the government themselves, as a false flag operation. The responsibility for the Reichstag fire remains an ongoing topic of debate and research.” However, after thumbing through a few books and well researched articles on the Internet, one can form a general consensus on this topic, making no mistake that Hitler’s did indeed initiate the order for the methodically planned the act of terror. So now I beg the question:
We have all likely heard rumors cast out by establishment figureheads such as U.S. President Barack Obama and the former Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) head Janet Napolitano, stating that domestic terror attacks including “cyber attacks” and “lone wolf” attacks will likely take place on American soil in the coming future . The question is: when?
Tip #2 — Keep Information on a Need to Know Basis
Both before and after martial law ensues, it’s good to know who or what poses a potential threat to you or your family. There are a number of things that could make for a potential disaster that need to be thought through. For example, if you were to locate and maintain the perfect bug-out location whether in-place or remote, who would you tell? How many people other than yourself would be informed of this location and know plans pertaining to it? Will any of these people be in your designated bug-out group?
Letting too many people know your plans or bug-out destinations could make for a potential disaster should martial law really arise. This is just one example of the things that must be thought about in order to be well prepared should such a scenario arise.
Tip #3 — Know Your Surroundings
No one wants to end up in the midst of a real martial law scenario unprepared, its simple fact. And if you haven’t thought about being prepared for martial law until you read this article, you likely should now.
However, one thing is for certain, it is imperative that you know your surroundings. Whether it’s your home, property or encampment you need to have a plan. Take security into account as well as a good escape or evasion plan. Never get pigeonholed or pinned into a corner, have multiple escape routes if need be ultimately leading to your primary remote bug-out location. If more people than yourself are involved, make sure and have a group plan with back up plans. Take pets into consideration and make accommodations at all costs as they are part of your family too.
Also take note of edible plants and wild animals in the area as it may come in handy as martial law thickens. Pick up an Air Force survival manual at a local military surplus store as a good reference for what you may need to know.
Learn how to blend in with your natural surroundings, including the indigenous population if necessary.
Another useful skill set is navigation. Knowing how to read and use maps is a plus.
Tip #5 — Gear and Attire
Nothing would be worse than to get left out in the middle of a cold Montana setting in the deep of winter with no food, water, power or supplies. The same goes for a desert climate in the summer, both extremes could get ugly if you have no plan so gear is a must.
Clothing and footwear should be a primary concern to anyone left in any type of enduring environment, not to mention amidst domestic martial law. First and foremost practicality and functionality should be considered. Does the garment or footwear meet climate and usage specifications? How does the item or items perform in a realtime situation? How well will the item or items hold up in a realtime situation? All of these questions must be not only asked but answered. And it would be in you best interest to know the answers before martial law hits.
So plan on running actual tests. If something doesn’t work right on a test run, scrap it, try something else. In a real situation you will want what’s best for you and the environment.
Tip #6 — Learn How to “McGyver” anything and Everything — Improvise on the Spot
Various skill sets will obviously come in handy. Intellect, street-smarts, athleticism and adventure will all play a big part in your survival or your groups survival if a realtime martial law situation were to arise. Learning to improvise for just about any situation is a must and likely will have to be done on-the-fly in times of demand.
Learn anything and everything you can in your daily activities. Don’t be lazy, because just like G.I. Joe said, “knowing is half the battle”.
People who are creative typically do well in disaster situations, so take note.
Tip #7 — Learn to Trade and Barter as Cash May Be Obsolete
Once a disaster hits or a scenario such as a martial law declaration, paper money quickly becomes useless to most and likely may be used for nothing more than fire tender.
As a good rule of thumb in a situation like the ones mentioned herein, you will likely be able to trade things of a more practical value to help you get much-needed supplies or assistance. Food, cigarettes, ammunition, and precious metals will all be a hot commodity when the you know what hits the fan.
Have a few good barter items packed into your bug-out bag just incase.
Tip #8 — Personal Hygiene
You can never be too clean. After being out-and-about on long and enduring security patrols or hiding out for weeks on end in a quiet encampment away from the action, personal hygiene can become an issue. Don’t forget to maintain a clean body and clothing attire at all costs as things like athletes feet, jungle rot and halitosis can set in. If you have to go back to early twentieth century methods. Wash your clothes by hand, bath in a stream, etc.
Tip #9 — Navigation — Know Your Bearings
Today we all rely on smartphones and GPS via satellite to navigate, however that’s exactly what the powers-that-be want. They want you to remain in the dark when it comes to doing anything manually anymore. That’s why it is a good practice to learn mapping and navigation skills if possible.
You can start by watching many informative YouTube videos online or by reading books pertaining to the subject.
Start using a hard map to navigate yourself around the town or city you live in now as your iPhone has likely taken most of the human out of you already.
Tip #10 — Cover Your Tracks — Be Invisible — Stay Off-Grid
Whatever your plans and actions are during a time of martial law, you will need to make sure you cover your tracks on all angles. One good rule of thumb is too never say too much as it can get you into trouble. Don’t let others outside your trusted group know what food, weapons and supplies you may or may not possess. Be careful what you say and do at all times.
On a physical note, when bugging-out to a remote location don’t make it easy for others to track you. Use methods of evasion to throw off the enemy from tracking your trail.
Be careful what forms of communication you use as everything is obtainable through Executive Orders such as National Security Presidential Directive 51 (NSPD51). All communications will be monitored, blocked and or seized. Think outside the box.
