Orion Martin is one of the founders of a new technology in development called SideKik.   What is Sidekik?  Sidekik is a mobile application which will perform two key actions simultaneously.

First, Sidekik will activate your smartphone’s audio and video recording devices and begin streaming the data to a secure facility in fact to multiple secure servers.  Next, Sidekik will initiate a video call and connect you with an attorney who will represent you in whatever situation you find yourself.

Why is Sidekik Important?  When you are in a critical situation, such as being pulled over by law enforcement, the balance of power is often against you. The fact is that most people don’t know their rights or how to enforce them. In addition, without a record of your encounter with law enforcement, the question of what happened during the encounter devolves into your word against that of the officer, which normally results with courts and public opinion in favor of the officer, regardless of what actually occurred.

Though many people have begun recording their interactions with law enforcement, the recording is stored on the recording device, which is sometimes confiscated.  Sidekik solves both of these problems. With the activation of the Sidekik app, your smartphone’s audio and video recorders will begin streaming to a secure server.

If the officer has behaved outside of their bounds and doesn’t want evidence of that misconduct available to you, there is simply nothing the officer can do. The audio and video has been stored and timestamped securely, and can be retrieved by you at your convenience.

Episode-1118- Lou Hayes on 6 Core Tactical Skills

Lou Hayes of theillinoismodel.com

Lou Hayes of theillinoismodel.com

Lou Hayes is a full-time municipal police officer (15yrs), SWAT officer (13yrs) and trainer (12yrs). He sits on a large Statewide tactical officers organization.

Lou provides instructions on weapons, tactics, law, command, rescue, active shooter response and area searches (K9).

He and his partner have developed a fully-integrated system to train these items together, rather than in isolated fragments.

Lou and his partner teach these as part of a program around the State to various police trainers and officers.

Today we discuss six core tactical team skills. They are:

  • Priority of Fire
  • CrossFire
  • Flanking
  • Cover-Maneuver
  • Back-to-Back
  • Cross-Clearing.

These six skills are the root of ALL team movements, formations, or positions. They are combined into applications such as: patrolling, bounding overwatch, room entry, building clearing, searching, perimeter functions, site security.

These team skills are being applied to preppers trying to train small communities of shooters who plan to work together on security or post-SHTF living.  Today we compare these six skills to “simple machines” (wedge, screw, wheel and lever) that combine into all other machines.

Episode-530- Myth Busting Day on TSP

I was looking for a new fresh topic and one sort of landed in my lap, a friend trotted out the old, “if you ask a cop if he is a cop, he has to tell the truth” line in a recent conversation and it led me to put this show together.  Join me today as we discuss a variety of myths on everything from law enforcement to money and point out where they can get you into trouble or worse.  I think that nothing is more powerful than knowledge but nothing is more dangerous that a false belief that you have enough faith in to base your choices on it.

Join me today as we tackle myths like…

  • Law enforcement myths
    • Asking are you a cop will require a cop to tell you the truth
    • Threatening to “call your lawyer” will keep a cop at bay
    • Officers must read you your rights when you are arrested
    • Not telling police what you know is “obstruction of justice”
    • You get one phone call from jail
  • Money and Debt Myths
    • Inflation always punishes savers
    • The government is who creates our money
    • There isn’t enough gold to allow a return to the gold standard
    • If you are not happy with a mortgage you just “give the house back”
  • Gun Myths
    • The best way to increase range is increase velocity
    • People shot with big guns are “blown backwards”
    • Carrying a gun makes you 100% safe
    • If a sign says you can’t bring your gun into anywhere you legally can’t
    • “Military” guns, “Assault rifles”, are more powerful than “civilian sporting guns”
    • A gun is only a “weapon” when used as such
  • Survival and TEOTWAWKI Myths
    • The best place to “survive” during TEOTWAWKI is in the wilderness
    • TEOTWAWKI will be easy for the prepared, hell it might be fun
    • As long as you have enough ammo and food you will be okay
    • If you have a gun and know how to use it you can just take what you need from others
    • The biggest threat we face is  _____________.

Episode-409- The Value of Rural Land

Today we do sort of a two part show.  I start out with a bit of commentary of a few stories, two actually related to land values and dependence on city based economies.  I then move onto todays main subject, the value of rural land.  I will also cover a lot of buying and negociating advice and give you some actual market prices of what is available right now.

Join me today as we discuss…

  • A great post and video on ITS Tactical
  • Marlin Firearms is closing their North Haven, CT plant
  • Detroit is dying and the lesson we learn from it
  • Why rural land has not fallen in value the way most real estate has
  • Really considering the decision to go “off grid”
  • Why rural land offers stability in value (monetary and lifestyle wise as well)
  • Getting quotes and expert advice BEFORE you buy or even make an offer
  • Having “vision” for what a property can become matched to reality of the cost and effort required
  • Seeing solutions where others see problems
  • Some actual prices of land in AR, MO, NM, ME, WA and CO right now
