Gabe Suarez Shares Latest Insights On Terrorism, Mass Shootings

In the previous post I referenced one published back on April 28, 2011, about the next Mumbai-style attack. I blogged:

Consider what Gabe Suarez, a decorated veteran of Southern California law enforcement and president of the personal safety training outfit Suarez International, wrote in his blog Warrior Talk News on May 6, 2010:

Put yourself in the enemy’s shoes… err, sandals… which option would YOU pick? Which offers the easiest implementation, least chance for detection, greatest chance for success – bombs or bullets?

The mass shooting and not the improvised and unsuccessful bomb is the “easy button”, and that fact cannot be ignored by us as it will not be overlooked by the enemy.

So what do we do?

1). We must identify who the enemy is. Please go back and peruse the list of events above, both failed and successful. What is the common thread connecting the attackers?

2). Carry your gun everywhere… a REAL fighting gun… not some sissy “suitable for CCW” 5 shot “self defense gun”. The times are not such that concern over a mugger is the issue anymore. Carry extra ammo with you. It is not difficult at all to carry a full sized pistol with a couple of extra magazines. I have done so since 1983.

These are not the times to be seeking political correctness over public safety. It is not the time to fear false labels created and assigned by the mass media. The Israelis learned that lesson long ago. After all is said and done, it is better to be a live “intolerant racist” (as the MSM would call us) than a dead “co-existing”, tolerant “paragon of political correctness”. I suspect that had Shahzad’s bomb been successful, lots of tolerant, “co-exist” types would have died right alongside us “intolerant racists”. The times call for careful profiling and suspicious curiosity as well as daily preparation.

Dress everyday as if you had a business meeting in Mumbai on 26 November 2008 with a bunch of Jews, Christians, and atheist Americans at a cafe right across the street from the Jihad School Of Terrorism.

Be ready or be a victim.

“Be ready or be a victim.” Great words to live by.

Almost six years on, Gabe Suarez continues to head up the multinational corporation Suarez International. I still check-in on Suarez on a regular basis via Facebook and his Suarez International Blog, “a ‘warrior lifestyle’ publication dedicated to the modern excellence-seeking martial enthusiast.” I blogged about his January 8 “Every Man Is A Counter Terrorist” Facebook post, in which he discussed the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack in Paris, France, and called upon readers to become counter-terrorists.

No holds barred. Thought-provoking. Classic Suarez.

I highlighted two other terrorism/mass shooting-related posts of his for the remainder of last year. One was a follow-up to his January 8 Facebook entry. The second focused on the October 1 mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon.

Today, I want to share with Survival And Prosperity readers Gabe Suarez’s latest material on terrorism/mass shootings. From his Suarez International Blog in January:

Terrorism In America- Reality Check” (January 6):

Are there sleeper cells in the USA planning…actively…to bring terror to every American? Yes, of course. Did anyone doubt this? I would have to sit and ponder for a time just how many events there have been. I recall the suicide bomber outside the OSU football game in 2005. And of course the prominent ones…Fort Hood…Boston Marathon…and now, San Bernardino. The common and undeniable thread is of course – the terrorists are all acting in the name of their political-religious ideology…

We Live In A Time Of War” (January 8):

From a good friend who has been there done that… on the dark side

***

Being prepared in a dangerous world. PLEASE take time to read & digest. Please share with others. As we have become complacent in our lives, others want to and will do their best to disrupt that complacency. This is extremely long, but, quite thorough. And, in the big picture, good advice…

Living In The ‘Before’” (January 11):

I had a long discourse today with a friend from high school. She was concerned about all the terrorism today and wanted advice. She had been living in the “before”.

What is the before?

I found Gabe Suarez’s insights in these three blog posts valuable. Perhaps readers will too.

Signs Of The Time, Part 49

I’m a huge movie buff. And one hilarious scene I’ll never forget is from the 2002 film Signs, where Mel Gibson’s family put on tin foil hats in an attempt to prevent aliens from reading their minds.

This being 2012 and all, a number of those many would consider to be part of the “tin-foil hat crowd” aren’t being particularly shy when it comes to sharing their beliefs. And one well-known firearm/personal safety expert seems to have had his fill of them. Gabe Suarez, a decorated veteran of Southern California law enforcement and president of the personal safety training outfit Suarez International, published a post yesterday on his Warrior Talk News blog (which I follow on a regular basis) where he pulled no punches in explaining why these individuals were purged from his Warrior Talk Forums, a tactical forum with “discussion of weapons of all types, combatives, tactics and current events.” Suarez wrote:

So this last week our moderators at Warrior Talk banned a gaggle of “tin foilers”.

For the sake of those who have not heard these terms because they have been busy working for a living and actually doing something important, here they are –

Tin foilers is a derisive term derived from the “tin foil hat” – a piece of headgear made from one or more sheets of aluminium foil or similar material said to shield the brain from government mind control and/or mind reading. The concept of wearing a tin foil hat for protection from such threats has become a popular term of derision for paranoids with persecutory delusions, and is associated with conspiracy theorists.

Tin foiler is also for those who fancy themselves as modern day Benjamin Martins (Mel Gibson’s character in Patriot) fighting the evil government. These guys spend their days reading about all the evils of the government, and hang out with other conspiracy types gossiping about uselessness. When they dream, they do not dream about bikini women on tropical beaches, they dream about last stands against those pesky “jack booted thugs” with their trusty SKS in their hands, yelling out “F-R-E-E-D-O-M” just before the geek at Foggy Bottom blasts them with a drone attack…

Too funny. Warrior Talk Forums is Gabe’s baby- and what he says, goes. End of story.

However, there’s nothing to stop these so-called “tin foilers” from creating their own forum.

You can read the entire post on Warrior Talk News here. And Gabe’s forum (also recommended) can be found here.

Chicago Violence Brings Response From City Hall, Self-Defense Experts

Shootings are up 11 percent from a year earlier in Chicago.

Homicides are up 36 percent.

And as I noted yesterday, the wildings (or flash mobs/mob actions as some also call them) are back.

City Hall’s response?

Hire more police officers?

Nope. Even though rank-and-file Chicago police officers have vented their frustration about a manpower shortage for some time now in such gathering places like the unofficial Chicago Police Department blog Second City Cop, and Fraternal Order of Police spokesperson Pat Camden pointed out on the Chicago Tribune website today:

We’ve had 1,000 officers retire in the last two years. They’ve (the department) hired 150.

Instead, the City of Chicago will pay out overtime to police officers. Jeremy Gorner, David Heinzmann, and Peter Nickeas wrote on the Tribune site this morning:

With homicides soaring so far this year and another bloody weekend in the books, Chicago police intend to announce at roll calls that overtime will be paid to officers working their days off beginning this weekend, according to a department-issued memo obtained by the Tribune.

The communication from First Deputy Superintendent Alfonza Wysinger makes clear that the initiative is targeted at curbing the growing violence. It comes at a time when the city is struggling with budget woes…

Time will tell if this strategy works.


“Victim describes mob attack”
WGN News Video

In the meantime, for those readers concerned about the wildings/mob actions/flash mobs in Chicago (and elsewhere, as 2011 showed it just wasn’t confined to the Windy City), advice from two well-known personal defense personalities in dealing with such life-threatening acts comes to mind.

Gabe Suarez, a decorated veteran of Southern California law enforcement and president of the personal safety training outfit Suarez International, addressed these threats in his Warrior Talk News blog back on June 26 last year. Suarez listed a number of recent incidents, then wrote:

These events have consumed the discussion at most self-defense focused websites in the last few weeks. Accompanying the discussion is the usual hand wringing regarding what to do if one is beset by a gang of thugs bent on your destruction. Well, I have my views on this which will no doubt shock the senses of the Doodley Doo Rights of the gun world.

First, this was not some group of young teenaged honor students. In all cases it was a group of urban thugs. Second, they were not there to practice for their debate on the ills of capitalism. Third, they understand only one thing…violence. So understand who they are and be ready to speak their language…

Suarez went on to prove “language lessons” in the post, which can be read in its entirety on Warrior Talk News here.

Then there’s Michael Bane- journalist, author, and host of a number of Outdoor Channel TV shows such as Shooting Gallery, MidwayUSA’s The Best Defense, and MidwayUSA’s The Best Defense: Survival! In episode #40 of The Best Defense, which aired on the Outdoor Channel on December 28, 2011, Bane, along with other self-defense personalities Michael Janich and Mike Seeklander, guided viewers through different scenarios and solutions to wilding/flash mob attacks.

You can watch the 5 minute 41 second segment on Bane’s DownRange.TV website here.

Stay safe…
