Lessons learned

 A security professional shares some observations of his surveillance of Antifa-organized "protests" and their security and counter-surveillance teams:

SOME LESSONS LEARNED

So what are the lessons for patriots?

  • The protests are organized by a central organization.
  • They have trained and professional security teams.
  • They actively conduct counter-surveillance.
  • Park sufficiently far enough distance away to discourage anyone following, and walk in.
  • They are completely willing to use arms and force.
  • The presence of body armor indicates a willingness to use violence.
  • Blending in is far better than direct confrontation.
  • Have a fully stocked and ready first aid kit, such as a BearFAK.
  • Do I believe there will be a time when confrontation is needed? Absolutely.

However, let’s be smart and gather intelligence slowly and carefully first.

CONTRIVED ESCALATION

As a follow-up, after I observed one protest in Detroit, my friend Ethan came out of the shadows and made a Twitter post that the Detroit Police had tried to run him over, complete with video.   I was there. They surrounded the police cars and began beating on them, trying to force the police to use deadly force or hit them with the cars. The entire situation was a set-up designed to produce a new incident to create more tension and protests.

Be prepared for many more of these protests as the election nears.

I wouldn't be surprised if they had overwatch via drones and spotters going before long, if they don't already.

Police on a mil/LE forum I visit regularly can indeed report that drones are being used. Not everyone in Antifa are programmed drones, the organizers are smart and have money.

Direct quote:

"They’re being used primarily to scout LE positions and track movements (of both LE and fleeing MAGA types), as well as acting as an early warning system for when their perimeter is being probed / breached. "

Shills are trying to push the "Trump organized the riots" angle, which indicates a lack of confidence in the optics of their riot campaign. And then a Kyle Rittenhouse shows up and forces a high publicity story about the MAGA resistance to surface, and the narrative eats itself.

A token MAGA resistance at the riots seems like a good way to keep the democratic collapse moving in the direction it's going, even if it opens Americans up to negative news stories.

Blogger Halvar Andersen September 05, 2020 2:05 PM  

Any good ways of spotting/tracking/countering the drones? What kind might they be using?

Blogger Doktor Jeep September 05, 2020 2:12 PM  

I'm reminded of the fat stupid blowhard conservative types I went up against at the GOP conventions back when I was representing for Ron Paul. These people who would drive their Ford F350 in and waffle around with obnoxious hats amd pro-Israel buttons, sneer and laugh about conspiracy theory and why McCain and later Romney were the only ones who could win, and how people like me were paranoid and only going to cause trouble.
I remember bringing actual proof of Romney being a complete gun grabber and getting assaulted.
And now with this intel laid before us regarding our foes, I feel the weight of the hubris, and reckless ignorance that got us to this point.
And I can't steer mind from, albeit recoiling, from the notion that this is the enemy we deserved all along.
Hoka hey.

Back during the heyday of CHAZ, people started discovering some of the CHAZites were former gov contractors who had been in Syria and Iraq.
It's coordinated, and guaranteed some of the Obama generals are in on it.

Blogger Ska_Boss September 05, 2020 2:19 PM  

The only business you have engaging with these dangerous useful idiots is to protect the lives and property of your community and even then, be careful when and how you stand your ground. We can clearly see from the Kyle Rittenhouse instance that they have no problem with assault with a deadly weapon. Always have someone watching your 6 and rely on your firearms training. You have been training for this, right?

Blogger doctrev September 05, 2020 2:19 PM  

Really, it's amazing that Kyle Rittenhouse did as much damage as we saw against this kind of organization. Especially because it's forced some very uncomfortable questions to be asked about Joseph Rosenbaum and whoever's been protecting him.

This explodes the idea that the riots are spontanous and black-led, as if we didn't know that already, and provides very valuable insights on how to stay safe and guard against traitors.

Blogger Stilicho September 05, 2020 2:33 PM  

Not surprising given the Soros funding and active support/training by the Chinese. Their leaders need to start disappearing. No trace.

Blogger Gallant September 05, 2020 2:34 PM  

Not a blackpill - but we must all do a 'know the enemy, know thyselves', and not dismiss the capabilities of these people as being the 'can't change a tire' soyed idiots that usually define their beliefs from people in our lives.

There are people on the 'right' doing intel; but trying to build it up from their own local areas. The closest to organization on 'the right' is 'preparedness networks', which are at least a thing in the US south. They're keeping it low-key, lot of 'have enough food' sort of thing; but trying to get the 'connection' side up. If this is seen by the left as potentially effective resistance, expect to see it attacked in the media as more 'white supremacist militia'.

Blogger Evstratios September 05, 2020 2:55 PM  

Heres an example, individuals at CANSOFCOM cant even begin to open their mouths to mention the situation at work.

Officially an issue non grata, there are not too many levels of authority that can impose such an intelligence blackout at that level and they are definitely not canucks

“Lives and property of your community”

That’s another surface level “advantage” that these ANTIFAs are currently enjoying: forward projection of power. I myself am part of a very competent community of like minded men, but we will never travel to Portland or Kenosha or NYC, we are prepared to defend OUR community. That lack of mobility is creating a very one sided narrative of video clips for the MSM at the moment.

...to risk your own people's lives for no likely gain. The Proud Boys put up token resistance. Kyle Rittenhouse put up lethal resistance.

While it seems daunting, such a comms-intensive setup, this "Battle net", is a liability in itself.

Guess it's time to break out the Kerberos SDR. Been sitting on this for a year now. 50-60 hour works weeks being what they are, but it's time for sperg energy and there's no sleep in these times anyway. If every sperg could put down the game controller and just seek out any task for the favor of God and His works, we would be zapping these orcs with cloaked laser drones by now.

Warning for fellow tech spergs, this stuff is so interesting, it'll be addictive.

Note a lot of SDRs have a ceiling below 2.4GHz so more specialized units would be needed for BT, line of sight, etc.

There's more I can say, but there's no point in saying it here at the limits of my knowledge. The ARRL handbook is a paperweight.

Blogger JaimeInTexas September 05, 2020 4:56 PM  

This parallels my thoughts of the past qwek or two - the need to not confront but to recon the surrounding areas for antifa vehicles, meeting places, staging, etc. If am thinking along these lines I am sure it is being done.

Blogger rikjames.313 September 05, 2020 5:13 PM  

Detroit appears to be their tough nut to crack. They have tried to set up at several locations, but with the exception of two, one in the morning when the diversity is sleeping and in an industrial area, and one sufficiently away from the night time clubbing scene for the diversity to not easily get pops off, appear to let them act out without getting shot by one or more of the gangs.

They did burn one of their big assets this week when an Obama (white) federal judge on Friday waited until after the court of appeals closed before forbidding the DPD from using any force or using shields to protect themselves.

Our federal bench, the ED Mich, is so dirty there is a list of judges who can't hear certain types of cases. One can't hear mafia cases (like for 20 years, still on the bench and collecting a check), one can't hear NAACP cases, one can't hear Chaldean cases. I am sure she just added herself to the list

Thankfully Kyle R. did everything right because as this escalates people can see how important it is to keep a level head if they want to get through it.
Looking at the NBA antics and vice interview antifa guy, evil is going all in and getting sloppy.

north of daytwa in the burbs here... usually thurs or fri late afternoon there are Antifa/BLM types on one side of the main drag with signs... and patriotic folks on the other side. if it is in front of the township area, there are usually more of them. there were maybe 30 of them yesterday, but they went and hid behind a sign because the afternoon sun was right in their eyes. I was biking and hollered "trump 2020" and "trumpslide". as usual. they were certainly more masked up yesterday, however.

Blogger Teleport me off this rock September 05, 2020 6:28 PM  

How does a judge "forbid the DPD from using any force or using shields to protect themselves"? Is she going to enforce it herself, right out there on the streets?

Blogger 7916 September 05, 2020 7:15 PM  

It's not the equipment and tactics that matter.

It's that these militarized antifa are all criminals. Not by their current actions, either. The bads that Kyle expunged were felons. They have nothing to lose. No job, no house, no family. Those that have skin offenses and DV charges are even more in the hole and will never climb out.

Couple that with the catch and release DA's (The timing on that is very apropo, eh? How convenient!) and they have no fear of police. Their reward is the joy of hurting those goody two shoes trying to still be good. They are going to make excellent Sturmtruppen; their brutality will put anything on the eastern front to shame.

That is the nature of your enemy. The toys don't make them dangerous.

I observed a possible Antifa meeting in my relatively small town a while ago. I was exiting a coffee shop that was closing and walked into the middle of a group of Antifa looking freaks gathered near the back entrance. I asked what the meeting was about but no one answered and I kept asking and it got sort of awkward. I started talking to one of them and the others wandered inside. Ive been pondering what to do with the information. Only thing I came up with was to let local patriot groups know the business is Antifa friendly and hosts meetings.

She will hold a contempt hearing and put the cop in the federal detention center in Milan, Michigan to get raped and shanked. She lives in maybury, aka the far suburb of Farmington, and has a US Marshal to keep the Detroit cops from playing catch up on her

Otherwise, I was thinking about how there must have been some cucked father 1000 years ago who proudly carried his son over the volcano and tossed him in to the cheering masses. Today the same father walks to the polls with his "I'm With Her" shirt and votes Biden.

The pagan fathers of old voluntarily tossed their children into roaring flames to be burned alive bidden, no doubt, by the priests.

The cult of Moloch is alive and well.

Maria is filthy, dirty Deep State.

Read the book "Extortion 17" to find out how Matis was the director and covered up the investigation of the murders of Seal Team Six who took out Bin Laden.

Matis misdirected the investigation and had evidence destroyed to cover up the murders of US Navy Seals.

Their reliance on tech is understandable but while it helps right now it makes them fragile. Centralized command is very important to their masters, but such comms are fairly easy to disrupt. It is all reliant on radio signals and info control points.

This is the link to the article that VD posted in his previous comment describing the C&C structure of Antifa. Read the whole thing, paying attention to the last paragraph about an Unknown Entity actually tagging Antifa.

This security article from survival blog is very interesting because it is the first time I've encountered the phrase "gray man" used in this context.

I came across this phrase in a book called "100 Deadly Skills" by Clint Emerson. This guy is supposedly a former Navy Seal who wrote a book listing everything from improvised weapons to getting rid of a body. Very interesting material.

The beginning of the book, however, covers gear carried on your person for traveling through hostile territory: A gun; backup gun; spare magazines; paracord; kevlar shoelaces; GPS; burner phone; water and energy bars; spare clothing of opposing colors; handcuff keys and razor blades located strategically on body; and a collapsible backpack or cross-shoulder bag, etc. Basically, different types of EDC kits depending on the circumstances.

It looks like a lot of these Antifa guys are borrowing information out of these books, rather than being formerly trained and organized.

The problem with Emerson's books is that, if you follow them, then you start to look like an operator. It is simply unusual to carry backpacks as adults. Razor blades and handcuff keys are pieces of metal that can set off metal detectors if you are not careful. Same thing with guns. If you look at some of the people protecting, say, Jerry Nadler, then you can see they have that look. I'm wondering if Emerson is dispensing this as disinfo.

For example, it's probably easy to spot security and operators within Antifa. These are the guys that are covered up with not just face masks, but coverings on the ears and dark sunglasses. Facial recognition can still spot you from the eyes and ears, but will fail if your eyes and ears are covered.

Lesson is, the more closely you resemble Antifa security, the faster they will approach you since you are not one of their team. Scrutiny from "Ethan," for example, seemed to drop when he changed his outfit and ditched the sunglasses.

Moreover, it's disturbing that Antifa security will follow you and try to photograph your plate. This, of course, is also a way of baiting them into an ambush.

I doubt these guys are law enforcement of Feebs. They would not need to cover up so much.

If you go to an Antifa gathering, make sure to have a pair of welding goggles handy. Antifa is shining lasers directly into the eyes of counter
demonstr and it could cause permanent blindness. You can get a pair at your local Walmart or industrial suoply store for $50-70.

Why are you revealing your intentions? Now they may have their eyes on you and surveillance will be following you around.

You make yourself conspicuous and put yourself and others connected to you in greater danger.

One commonality I've noticed through many of the videos I've seen of the rioting is a section of their own will tend to get overly excited and start destroying something and a portion of the crowd will tell them to stop, possible because destroying wasn't the goal for the event. But it brings to mind should it come to it this is what scorched earth looks like and there does appear to be things they want to keep and a degree of order they want to preserve for themselves and their use. Country boys know this and keep reminding about shutting down cities and what not, so take it for what it is.

@7 "these dangerous useful idiots is to protect the lives and property of your community"

And fer cryin' out loud -- STOP "ministering" to the enemy!

Yes, it may be a good and Christian thing to do for OUR people at a concert -- been there done that -- but these are not people gathering together to do things together!
These are enemy 'soldiers' attacking us and doing things to destroy our civilization, and if they get hurt shooting off their fireworks-packed-with-nails at the cops, or blocking traffic so their buddies can pull some White person out of the car to beat them near to death, or pulling down our statues, whatever injuries they sustain: NOT our problem!

I got a viciously vindictive laugh when, in some eff-the-police riot, an idiot-negress smashed a plate glass window so she and her friends could loot a small store, and got badly cut and began screaming, "call the police, call 911!"

Decades ago, I worked for an ambulance corps and taught EMT courses, and it still infuriates me when stupid people do stupid things and win stupid prizes, and then scream for help and put EMS folks into lethal jeopardy to save them from their *choices*.

You went windsurfing in a Cat3 hurricane? Buddy, yer on yer own! Burning down and looting someone's city? Get your own medical help; NOT our business.

Young Kyle was being a good boi -- and a total cuck! -- offering "first aid" in the middle of a city to anyone -- even the ones causing the damage and injury. Had he done his true duty: guarded the old gent's remaining businesses from destruction, and tended only to his buddies if they needed it, he would not have been separated and gotten into jeopardy.

Am I happy he killed to protect himself? Oh hell yes -- even with the no doubt permanent ramifications in his life. I'm still wishing for our side to gin up a sniper brigade with paintball rifles to start making the point.

Ah, if only wishes were horses... Oh, and FBI? That's what's called a METAPHOR: I am not actually suggesting or planning such a squad, but it would sure be emotionally satisfying!

The information and analysis you offer over these posts comes too late for that Ohio boy who drove his general lee to Charlottesville in 2017—only to be lured and then goaded into reacting resulting in injury and death. He is of course responsible for his actions, even if it were a scripted part.

Normal people need to stay away from major metros controlled by the Democratic "High-Low" alliance, which is pretty much all of them. You are badly outnumbered, and the justified use of lethal force in self-defense will as best result in your being held up to worldwide obloquy by the mass media; the worst-case scenario is wrongful conviction by an inner-city jury followed by ass-raping for life.
P.S. That goes for you wannabe cops, too. White men have no business working for inner-city PDs; whatever they are paying isn't enough for a gig where you are being set up to fail.
