Free Webinar: Standing Up A Neighborhood Watch “With Teeth”


“You Gotta Have Friends” but they Gotta Be Organized (and Trained!)

Are you and your neighbors ready to defend against looters, arsonists, terrorists, and gangs? 

Please join us on Tue, Nov 22, 2016 at 7:00 PM Central Standard Time for this free webinar hosted by Oath Keepers.

UPDATE“Jack Lawson,”  author of the excellent (but sadly out of print) book “A Failure of Civility” will be a presenter for the first 5-10 minutes of this important webinar.  Jack will discuss what he sees coming, and will give some advice on how to prepare.  He will also discuss his new book project, which will be a “how to” manual specifically tailored for the Oath Keepers Community Preparedness Team (CPT) program.   Jack’s comments will be a great way to kick off this webinar.

When there is civil unrest, or a long term breakdown in law and order,  you will need to come together with your neighbors to defend yourselves and each other. Going it alone will not work. It takes a community to provide effective security for you and your loved ones. This webinar, presented by two U.S. Army Ranger veterans, will teach you how.  They will show you how to put together a “Neighborhood Protection Plan” (NPP), as described in the excellent (but sadly out of print) book, A Failure of Civility, so you are ready, in advance, to stand up a neighborhood watch, “with teeth” to defend against looters, arsonists, predatory gangs, terrorists, and the “doomsday marauders” or “prepper pirates” who will all try to take advantage of any disaster to prey on the weak.

This webinar is expected to run two hours, from 7PM to 9PM Central.


Jack Lawson, Special Operations veteran, and author of “A Failure of Civility.”

U.S. Army Ranger veteran Jim Arroyo. Jim is the Arizona Oath Keepers VP and AZ Community Preparedness Team (CPT) Director. Jim’s Yavapai County chapter has the most well developed CPT program within Oath Keepers and has successfully partnered with local police for community security. This webinar is a somewhat condensed version of a three hour lecture on this topic that Jim has taught to many civil and neighborhood groups in Arizona. He will be assisted by:

U.S. Army Ranger veteran Ivan Chiplinsky. Ivan is one of our primary Florida Oath Keepers leaders, with a heavy focus on CPT and community security, and brings to the table many lessons learned from multiple Florida Hurricanes and the opportunistic looting and other crime that comes in the wake of any disaster, natural or man-made. As a student of Dr. Edwin Vieira’s writings on the necessity of a true people’s militia, Ivan understands how far we have strayed from the Founders’ Republic, and what it will take to get back to it, one neighborhood, one town, at a time. He is also author of a recently published expose on the Ukraine decent into disaster, and its parallels to our current situation.

Both were presenters on the tail end of our recent highly successful webinar on preparing for post-election civil unrest. Now they get two hours to teach you what you really need to know about neighborhood security.

It would be ideal if you could get all your neighbors “switched on”now and organized for defense in advance, and if you are that fortunate, Jim and Ivan will show you how to best organize and equip them. But the reality is that most Americans will not organize for mutual defense until they are forced to by catastrophic events. So, you will need to plan ahead, and have a Neighborhood Protection Plan ready to go so you can step up and organize that neighborhood watch “with teeth” (aka a neighborhood protection team) on the fly, during or immediately after the disaster or civil unrest has struck.

We will take audience questions after each major topic. In addition, we will post written supplementary materials on each topic.

After the webinar, all participants will receive a coupon for 10% off* merchandise and memberships in our store.

Register now and be sure to join us on time. We’re limited to the first 2000 people to sign on.

As patriots, we need to be prepared so we can fulfill our duty to our family, our community, and our country. Now is a good time to check your neighborhood protection plan (or form one!), check, organize, and shore up your equipment/supplies/preps, and get your you-know-what wired tight, just in case.  – Oath Keepers

Oath Keepers Definition of “a Neighborhood Watch with Teeth”

 Unlike a standard Neighborhood Watch, or Block Watch Program, where the local Police Department or County Sheriff expects you to merely dial 911, or perhaps use a direct line to the business admin office, our program takes Neighborhood Watch to a whole new level.

 Oath Keepers will train your Neighborhood Watch group to a level of expertise never seen in these programs before. Currently Neighborhood Watch incorporates Crime Prevention, Counter Terrorism and Disaster Preparedness.

 It is a historic fact that police are often overwhelmed during serious natural or man-made disasters, and unable to respond, leaving citizens on their own.   That is the current reality in the wake of hurricanes, earth quakes, riots, etc., and that will certainly be the long term reality during an economic collapse or EMP attack on the power grid, WWIII or extensive Civil Unrest/Civil War.  We expect you to stand up and take responsibility for yourselves, your families and friends, and your neighborhoods.  You must be able to use the Second Amendment for what it is intended; the God given right of self-defense of yourselves and your families, and the duty to defend your community.

 We are not a militia or a vigilante group.  However, in the event of a breakdown of civil society, we can and will maintain a semblance of order in our own neighborhoods.  We want you to use your firearms responsibly and legally.  Restraint and discipline are mandatory.  If we can control the safety of our own areas, and be able to preserve life and property, we will relieve part of the stress on an overwhelmed local first-responder system, who will appreciate the help in times of chaos.

 In addition, no police officer, fire-fighter, EMT, or other first-responder is going to leave home and go out to do their job unless their own family is safe.  Just a reality.  So, there must be a neighborhood watch with teeth in place to keep their homes and family secure so they can project out and help the broader community.  The neighborhood watch is an essential part of community security and relief.

 Be prepared to take full responsibility for all your actions. You are the GUARDIANS of the people. We as Oath Keepers take this responsibility seriously, so should you.

* Organizing and training up effective neighborhood watches with teeth is job#1 in our Community Preparedness Team (CPT)  Program, so if, after this webinar, you want our direct help in getting that done, please email us using our email, and put CPT NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH TRAINING in the subject line, and we will put you in touch with a CPT leader near you.



It takes a village … to stop looters, arsonists, and terrorists. 


I hate to say “I told you so” but I did tell you so. We are now seeing the ramping up of that “perfect storm” of rioting, terrorism, intentional civil disorder, manufactured racial strife, and manufactured economic collapse from the radical left that I have been warning of for two years. It began with urban rioting, arson, assaults and murder in reaction to several police shootings, expanded this year into planned mass casualty terrorist attacks and assassinations on police in Dallas, Texas; Baton Rogue, Louisianan; New York City, and elsewhere (including a recent failed attempt to bomb a police station in Colorado), and has now morphed into a more general radical left call for “violent revolution” after the left lost the election.

Radical leftists (many of whom proudly fly communist flags) are openly calling for disruptive attacks on malls during the Christmas season to intentionally crash the economy; calling for mass rioting and civil disorder to pressure the Electoral College Electors to vote in Hillary instead of Trump. There are literally thousands of calls all over social media for assassination of Trump, and  leftists calling for rape, assault, and death against Trump’s family as well as against all Trump supporters and their families (including calls to rape and kill their children).  They are also calling for leftists to swarm and physically “shut down” and stop the Washington DC inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump on January 20, 2017.  See this report for details.



The radical left in this nation has now taken off the mask and shown their true contempt for our system of free elections (which they claimed to champion, so long as they won, but now attack and disregard after losing the election), and are showing their contempt for our Constitution and way of life. We are witnessing the beginning of a modern version of the Weather Underground/Black Liberation Army/radical Jihadist wave of terrorism unleashed upon America during the 1970s. Watch this 1982 Documentary on that unholy alliance, and understand that just as radical Marxists joined forces with radical Islamists back then (to the point of conducting joint training and joint operations), they are joining forces again today, and we can now expect more of the same, but on a vastly increased scale:

Get ready.  The storm is coming.

  1. Stewart Rhodes- Is it okay to put “NOWHERE TO HIDE” video on fb? This is what’s happening RIGHT NOW! and we have got to inform….. Or, should we?
    I am a member (eyes and ears) but not an “OATH KEEPER”, per say. I’m a very frightened, (recently widowed), 51 year-old woman that has come to the final conclusion that ‘THIS’ is REALLY GOING TO HAPPEN and VERY SOON!! This isn’t more propaganda & lies set out to confuse us. (I know you are well aware of this …. I was just saying this allowed, so maybe hearing it from my own lips will help sink it in!)
    I’ve been trying like Hell to inform/educate folks about various issues and the goings’-on within our corrupt gov’t. Especially my Sister and her Husband (who is a recently retired police officer from Washington State). I have been unsuccessful with my brother-in-law. Man, he’s pig-headed! I was thinking that IF I COULD SHARE THIS VIDEO that maybe it could open some minds…. I don’t know. What are your thoughts?
    Thank you for your service, Sir! Whatever input you can give me would be appreciated because I trust your years of wisdom and level-headed thinking.

    1. I’m in WA State myself. Will say this, Not all, but many of the police in this state are hostile and I don’t know why. Am seriously considering moving to Wyoming.
      I just read an article that stated, ” the Washington State Police association is looking to lobby for yet more Gun Control in this state. We either need to counter their efforts or get out while the getting is good Kim….

      1. If you are not in a ‘forced to retreat’ situation, it is best to counter their assault with all legal means and tactics at your disposal. Do not surrender territory. Rally the good guys and resist the tyranny. Aparently there are at least two of you in WA who have found each other. Find other like minded folk and resist any tyrannies projected at you.

      2. Point well taken Tim. It may be that a strategic retreat seems logical for myself. The reason is odd when you consider I was screaming about Unconstitutional regulations 30 years ago. Always loved the “you must be hiding something then,” when you have won the argument. That said, I’ve looked for militias that are serious in my area, only to find none. Getting back into competition would probably help there, for sure. The main reason though, is that I’m the dipstick that knew this day was coming but didn’t prepare like I should have. Here’s a couple of examples; Oathkeepers had an NITC training that I would have went to, but I barely had 3 AR magazines, let alone 10. Don’t even get me started on Coms, or plate carriers etc. Am working on all that. The other reason, as you rightly pointed out is that I need to join the proper organizations (and will) when I have extra money. You are correct in that, we need to gather up in this state, and soon!

    2. Sorry, just now seeing this. By all means post it on Facebook and share it far and wide. It is relatively recent history that has been ignored by the mainstream media and Hollywood. Time to remind people of our own history, and to reflect that those same radicals are still around, but now they are college professors and/or in government.

      Let me know if you need more help with your Brother in Law. I can put him in touch with some police veterans who can help him see it.


  2. Fantastic. How do I volunteer or organize a CPT group in Northeastern Wi? I know you guys are busy but nobody has responded to my emails yet.

    1. Lima, as a Northern California member, I was told not to take the slight time before getting a response, as not important. Most folks are volunteers, and have full time jobs, and families, while still finding free time to be active Oathkeeper leaders. Hang in there my friend! Jeff, Redding,California

    2. Short answer- find out what laws you will be subject to, that depends on the intent of your operation. Begin a network of locals, Make sure you are compliant with weapons carry laws. Begin to stock up on supplies, food, water, disaster relief items, and first aid. Make a plan, then make an other, and an other. You need contingencies. Begin training, and don’t stop that training until its time to use it in real world scenarios. Also it would be helpful to find the nearest chapter leader and have a meet and greet.

  3. I have our book A Failure of Civility back in print currently on ebay. If you are interested in bulk orders send me a message.

    1. Mike,

      I’ve read your book, AFOC, and wanted to thank you for putting such a great template full of examples and practical suggestions together. As a civie, I have not been trained or exposed to many of the facets that would be required to setup and properly administer a NPP or the like. I believe after reading your fine book that I know what I don’t know and the kinds of people and experience that would be needed. Thank you again for the education and for putting it in terms that anyone could understand enabling regular folks to take appropriate action with the guidance you provide.

  4. Hello- I think the photo at the top of the announcement of tonight’s upcoming webinar on Nov 22nd, of a bunch of guys with weapons and a painted sign that says “drunks with guns”, may be tongue in cheek, but it gives the wrong perception of the OathKeepers as a bunch of careless drunks. Also, the guy with his elbow on the power pole appears to have his weapon pointed at the photographer. Safe gun handling?

    1. It was tongue in cheek, and as for their gun-handling, that’s why I added in the caption:

      You Gotta Have Friends” but they Gotta Be Organized (and Trained!)

      But the photo was just too priceless not to use.


  5. Tom Dent in Moses Lake WA is one of our most staunch supporters. I’ve known him for many years and he and his family are what made our nation great. Am proud to call them friends.

  6. Watched the webinar last night. Got some good tips and ideas, but the technical issues shut us down finally. Didn’t get questions answered afterwards about the Neighborhood Watch manuals you discussed, nor where to find the PDF downloads you went over, nor how to get the coupon offered for watching. I’ll dig into the CPT page and see what I can get going there. Tahnks for all the good work.

      1. I missed the webinar due to other obligations. Looking forward to watching the video of the presentation when it is posted.

  7. Here in PA, the counties offer 40-hour courses in disaster response, called “Civilian Emergency Response Training”. It is free and provides a backpack full of equipment. Training includes basic first aid (including trauma triage), light search and rescue, disaster site assessment, building damage assessment, working with first responders and much more It is based on FEMA training. I don’t know if other states offer this training, but it is really worthwhile.
