The narrator of this video is Ahati Kilindi Iyi. He explains different Martial art techniques. As well as the history of African martial arts. I learned quite a lot from this video. I hope you enjoy it.
This is a father son sparring with each other. This is good to see. All of our people should be teaching our children this. It’s important that we all learn some type of self defense technique. Karate,Kung Fu, etc. Any type of hand to hand combat is important. You never know when you’ll need it.
Americans might once again be guaranteed the right to trial: a clause in the most recent draft of next year’s defense spending bill ensures that United States citizens aren’t stripped of their right to habeas corpus.
Lawmakers have included provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013 tha
Under the 2012 NDAA, any person considered a substantial supporter of a group alleged to have committed hostilities against the US can be held in a military prison until essentially the end of time without ever being brought to court. In the latest draft of next year’s NDAA, Congress is reminded of the writ of habeas corpus and told any legal American resident must be awarded a fair trial.
“Nothing in the Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107-40; 50 U.S.C. 1541 note) or the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (Public Law 112-81) shall be construed to deny the availability of the writ of habeas corpus or to deny any Constitutional rights in a court ordained or established by or under Article III of the Constitution for any person who is lawfully in the United States when detained pursuant to the Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107-40; 50 U.S.C. 1541 note) and who is otherwise entitled to the availability of such writ or such rights,” reads Sec 1033 (a) of the proposed Pentagon spending bill.
Elsewhere, the NDAA draft orders that the president must inform Congress within two days of any American detained under the Authorization for Use of Military Force, a post-9/11 legislation that the Obama White House has used to defend their supposed right to keep indefinite detention on the books. A team of plaintiffs led by journalist Chris Hedges have sued US Pres. Barack Obama for implementing the 2012 NDAA and its indefinite detention provisions, but the fight has been stalled by an appellate ruling that removed an injunction from District Judge Katherine Forrest that blocked those sections.
“If the Obama administration simply appealed it, as we expected, it would have raised this red flag,” Hedges wrote on Reddit in September. “But since they were so aggressive it means that once Judge Forrest declared the law invalid, if they were using it, as we expect, they could be held in contempt of court. This was quite disturbing, for it means, I suspect, that US citizens, probably dual nationals, are being held in military detention facilities almost certainly overseas and maybe at home.”
By way of a fight spearheaded by Hedges and a massive grassroots campaign, efforts to remove the indefinite detention provision from US law now seems to stand a chance at being successful. That isn’t to say a fair and speedy trial will necessarily be without obstacles, though. The 2013 NDAA still needs to pass the Senate and be signed into law by the president, and there is ample time for anyone in Washington to strike the latest provision or add new ones ensuring indefinite detention remains a possibility. Last year, Pres. Obama’s top aides said the White House would not sign off on the NDAA until the indefinite detention clauses were removed. On New Year’s Eve, Pres. Obama authorized it regardless with little comment to the press aside from a signing statement acknowledging he had reservations about the very bill he just put on the books.
Sen. Carl Levin (D-Michigan), the chairman of the Senate Committee on Armed Services, has claimed that the indefinite detention provisions were insisted by the president himself.
Even if the latest copy stays intact, though, an US citizen held captive by his own country might not have it that easy. Sec 1033 (c) reads, “A person who is lawfully in the United States when detained pursuant to the Authorization for Use of Military Force shall be allowed to file an application for habeas corpus relief in an appropriate district court not later than 30 days after the date on which such person is placed in military custody,” perhaps paving the way for a full month of mistreatment at the hands of Uncle Sam.
Considering how much damage was done in New York because of Hurricane Sandy, everyone should have a safe place to go and be ready – for ‘anything’ and ‘everything’. Obviously, with tornadoes, you can’t keep your supplies on the first floor, but basement areas seem to be okay – storm cellars are always a good idea. Of course we all remember what happened to black folks in Katrina,right? We don’t want that happening again. We can’t rely on FEMA to save us.So black people need to get ready for ANYTHING. Here’s a list of the different categories people usually fall into. What category best describes you?
Working Citizen – Concerned with paying rent & utilities, keeping or getting health insurance, paying taxes, inflation, car repairs, leaky plumbing, back pains… May work two jobs, does without personal luxuries, hopes their children will do better than themselves. Emotional, physical and financial survival is the focus of daily life.
Upwardly Mobile – Concerned about aging, retirement investments, cholesterol levels, loss of employment, lawsuits, burglaries, bandwidth, clothes dryer lint fires. Takes vitamins, exercises, eats oatmeal, wears seatbelts, has smoke & carbon-monoxide detectors, requests medical tests, has numerous insurance policies, files lawsuits, pampers themselves wherever ,whenever possible. “Survival” to them means living long enough to take full benefit of extensive retirement plans and long term care insurance policies.
Medical Crisis – Has very complete medical pack in house and in car. Donates blood and is active in the Red Cross. Has taken paramedic EMT & CPR courses, knows vital signs, stockpiles medicines, etc. Concerned with vehicle accidents and emergencies involving injuries. Focus is on helping family, friends & community survive medical emergencies.
Safety Preparedness – Learns principles and techniques needed for surviving worse-case scenarios that can occur anyplace, anywhere. Makes preparations for such common calamities as building fires, dog attacks, physical confrontations, lightning strikes, car breakdowns, third-world travel problems, flash floods, home invasions and even train wrecks. Reads: Survive Safely Anywhere, Worse-Case Scenario Handbooks
Wilderness Survival – Being able to stay alive for indefinite periods in life threatening wilderness scenarios. These can include: plane crashes, shipwrecks, being lost in the woods. Concerns are: thirst, hunger, climate, terrain, health, stress, fear. Prepares with: knowledge, training & practice. Kit includes: water purifiers, shelter, fire starters, clothing, food, medical supplies, navigation & signaling gear. Reads: Nessmuk, Kephart, Angier, Mears
Personal Assault Survival – Individuals concerned with surviving brief encounters of violent activity. Focus is on personal protection & it’s legal ramifications, danger awareness, Boyd’s cycle (also known as the OODA cycle – observe, orient, decide & act), martial arts, self defense tactics and tools (both lethal & less-than-lethal). Reads: Ayoob, Cooper, Jordan, Applegate, Sanow, Marshall, Taylor, Steele, Sun Tzu
Natural Disaster, Brief – People that live in tornado, hurricane, flood, wildfire, earthquake or heavy snowfall areas and want to be prepared for the inevitable. Investment in material for fortifying structures and tools for rebuilding & constructing temporary shelter, perhaps have a below ground shelter, food, water, medicine, and supplies, enough to get by until contact with the rest of the world resumes.
Natural Disaster, Years Long – Concerned about long term weather cycles of 2-10 years, unusually cold or warm periods, that have happened on and off for thousands of years. Might stock several tons of food per family member and have a heavy duty greenhouse with packed in nitrogen non-hybrid seeds.
Natural Disaster, Lifelong – Possible scenarios include: severe global warming and the coming ice age, the greenhouse-effect-gone-wild, warming/cooling of gulf steam waters, large meteor strike, shift in earth’s axis or reversal of geo-magnetic fields… Owns maps of previous ice age glacier patterns and are hopeful they live south of the permafrost line. May have purchased snowshoes. Reads reports by National Academy of Science and Woods Hole Physical Oceanography Dept.
General Social/Political Decline, Liberal – Concerned about growing cultural problems and the slow destruction of the constitution & the bill of rights. Into anti-crime measures, both passive (alarms) and active (neighborhood watch). Most often anti-gun, pro-choice, pro-environment, anti- war, against prayer in school, against death penalty… Supporters of the ACLU, Amnesty International, Ban Handguns in America, Greenpeace.
General Social/Political Decline, Conservative – Concerned about growing cultural problems and the slow destruction of the constitution & the bill of rights.

Most often pro-gun, anti-abortion, pro-business, pro- national defense, for prayer in school, pro-death penalty… Supporters of Attorney General Ashcroft, Rush Limbaugh, NRA, the Alaska “Support Industry” Alliance.
Cold War “Survivalists” – Fear homeland invasion by nation’s enemies, whether foreign or domestic. This was a group of substantial size before the fall of the Soviet Union. True-believers currently suspect the U.N. of one-world domination plans and fear black helicopters, government intervention & taxation. The majority of these people have relocated to other groups. Favorite movies: Red Dawn, Mad Max trilogy.
Nuclear War – These folks know all primary, secondary & tertiary targets, downwind fallout patterns and chose to live in locales they deem to be safest in the event of all out nuclear war. They’ve built fallout shelters and have the necessary food, water, tools and skills to see them though. Other groups also prepare for nuclear war as an exercise, in that if you are prepared for nuclear war, you are prepared for all other scenarios. Reads: Tappan, Kearny, Clayton.
Bio-Chem – Concerned with the spread of fatal diseases and terrorist use of biological agents & nerve gases. Examples: E.Coli 0157, botulism, dengue, Cruetzfeldt-Jakob Disease, SARS, Rabies, Hantavirus, Anthrax, Plague, Cholera, HIV, Ebola, Marburg, Lassa, Saron, VX … Might own NBC (nuclear, biological & chemical) full-face respirators, polyethylene coveralls, PVC boots, Nitrile gloves, plastic sheeting and duct tape. Reads: CDC reports, Haz-Mat manuals, Preston’s “Hot Zone”
Knowledge-Enabled Mass Destruction (KMD) – Concerned with unintended consequences of genetic manipulation, nano-technology, transgenic crops, psychological engineering, genome hybridized cloning, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, engineered organisms, self-replicating molecular robotic assemblers (“gray goo problem”)… Techno-luddites fear human extinction. At the other end are the bioethicists who believe policies and self regulation will avert disaster. Reads: Kurzweil, Kaczynski, Moravec, Dyson
Over-Population – Soaring increase in world’s uncontrolled human growth impacts available freshwater, food, health-care, environment, economics, consumerism, spread of diseases and just about every other facet of life. projections indicate that world population of 6.2 billion may again double in fifty years. Followers range from those who’ve foregone children & have had voluntary sterilization to those who’ve embrace large families and only then sound the alarm, like Al Gore, David Packard (H-P founder) and Sripati Chandrasekhar (India’s birth control advocate). Supports: Family planning, birth control and voluntary sterilization.
Monetary Disaster – Reads lots of Ayn Rand and believe the Federal Reserve system is evil. Newsletters suggest hard assets of gold & silver bullion/coin and similar precious-metal oriented investments. They are preparing for paper money to become worthless, thus have a good burglar alarm system and enough food/ supplies to last a couple of months, or perhaps even a year, until a new monetary system (formal or informal) is re-established.
Biblical Revelations – The Savior is going to return very soon, the final battle with the devil will occur in their lifetime, the rapture is eminent. Very wide range of beliefs and attitudes in this group. Pacifist to armed camp, no food stockpiles (leave that to God) to decades of food storage, etc. The ability to put trust in faith, above all else, is essential to members of this group. Usually follow one very charismatic leader’s interpretations of the bible.
Post-9/11 Reactionaries – Are convinced that government should have unlimited powers to do everything and anything to stop all potential terrorist threats. They want greater protection through increased governmental controls over citizens and foreigners alike, both within the country’s borders and elsewhere. Willing to preemptively strike the enemy. Willing to surrender civil liberties and human rights in order to feel safe and secure. Believers rarely take any personal action, relying instead on the government to make changes.
This is part two of the broadcast with Irritated Genie.
This is another great video by Prime the Official. He explains in depth how he believes ethnic cleansing is happening in America. And how many whites are angry at Blacks and Mexicans. Many whites feel they’re losing “their country” and getting prepared for war. Black people need to wake up and get prepared for whatever may happen. Prime makes some excellent points in this video.
