How To Be A Violent Nomad and Disregard International Borders

As the thinking of the masses, and especially the youth, begin to move away from a classical liberal perspective and in the direction of socialism, I spend more time thinking about alternative places to live and survival tactics that may have to be used here in the United States if all hell breaks loose.

It is just not clear how bad things might get and it is better to be prepared now than sorry later.

It is with these sentiments near the front of my mind that I recently picked up, 100 Deadly Skills: The SEAL Operative's Guide to Eluding Pursuers, Evading Capture, and Surviving Any Dangerous Situation by Clint Emerson.

I am recommending that everyone close to me read the book.

As the title notes, Emerson was a Navy Seal. He was with SEAL Team Six for 20 years conducting special ops. He writes that some call those who have his abilities "Violent Nomads" because of "their disregard for international borders and their bias for swift brutal action."

Some of the 100 tips in the book probably won't be useful for most of us, such as skill #85: How to dispose of a body.

But there are plenty of others that could be extremely helpful in a given situation.

A lot of it is just deep common sense.

For example, he tells us that if you hide behind a car when shooting is going on, be sure to hide in a way that puts the engine of the car between you and the shooter, as an extra shield, because the body of the car alone can be pierced by bullets.

Other practical advice includes:

How to:

#19 Prevent a hotel invasion
#20 Conceal belongings within lodging
#21 Build a room hide
#28 Transform an umbrella into a lead pipe
#29 Turn a pen into a weapon
#38 Detect tampering of personal effects
#42 Deceive surveillance cameras
#52 Open a car door with a piece of string
#55 Turn a speaker into a microphone
#59 Hide information in plain sight
#65 Deliver a devastating elbow strike
#73 Survive an active shooter
#77 Leave zero DNA behind
#80 Trick facial recognition software
#81 Trick fingerprint scanning devices
#83 Get past a guard dog
#89 Escape from an automobile trunk
#98 Defeat handcuffs

Let's hope things never get so bad that we need to employ any of these techniques but I would rather be safe than sorry in these times.

You can order the book here:



  1. Thanks for the book recommendation. I’ve been thinking about the same thing, and more so recently. If I moved anywhere, it would have to be out of the US, but where? If I chose to keep my family in the US, the only place I would be is Alaska. And for many reasons, I would recommend people who want to stay in the US but get out of where they are, that they move to Alaska, and with the way things seem to be heading, sooner than later.

    1. My thoughts exactly. I've even thought about getting my CDL and coming up there to work for you. The biggest drawback for me is the lack of sunshine in the winter.

    2. Shoot we get almost 2.5 hours every day! If you stay busy you really don’t notice it, cause it comes on slowly, and next thing you know it’s sunshine for 22 hours a day. Makes up for it. The further south you go the more normal it is, the further north the more extreme, but in my opinion the more challenging and pretty dang cool.

  2. This book would be good reading for those living in large, urban cities like Chicago, Baltimore, etc. As a native of Chicago who lives in the South, I could have definitely put the information in this book to good use.

  3. Since Antifa have become the Brown Shirts of the Deep State, another useful chapter might be: how to defend yourself against violent Antifa attacks without getting arrested.

  4. Libertarians need to become Jedi.
