related Flash message to subscriber mobile devices:
12/31 – Multiple threats against New Year’s celebrations in NYC. Gangs calling event “Kill a Pig Night”. FBI warning US law enf of need for incr situational awareness.
What You Need To Know
Twice in the last two weeks AlertsUSA subscribers were notified via SMS messages to their mobile devices regarding FBI warnings of increasing threats to law enforcement officers in urban areas across the U.S.
Last week, the FBI issued a National Situational Information Report warning of “copy cat assassinations” following the murder of two NYPD officers. The report states that the “recent murders of New York City Police Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos have spawned numerous threats” against law enforcement personnel. The report also states that Ismaaiyl Brinsley, the man who shot the NYPD officers, claimed to be part of a nationwide group planning to kill police. (See our previous report on Brinsley here.)
This FBI warning was timely as in the past 7 days officers in Los Angeles, CA (see this pic), Durham, NC and Tampa, Florida have reported similar assassination attempts, though they received scant coverage by mainstream news outlets.
WHITE OFFICERS TARGETED
The FBI report also states that the day before the NYPD officers were murdered, another bulletin was issued stating that they had received “reliable information” that members of the gang were planning to target white law enforcement officers “send a message.” This bulletin also indicated that an Ohio street gang known as the “Heartless Felons Gang” gave its members orders to kill white police officers in the Cleveland area to avenge black lives taken by white police officers.
KILL A PIG NIGHT
On Wed of this week, AlertsUSA subscribers were notified via SMS messages to their mobile devices of FBI warnings about threats against police during New Year’s celebrations. This warning was issued, in part, due to threats scrawled in graffiti in different cities across the U.S., as well as on social media outlets by multiple gangs, calling the event “Kill a Pig Night.”
NEW BLACK PANTHERS ENCOURAGE KILLING POLICE
Further, on this week’s official broadcast of the New Black Panthers Party’s “Black Power Radio,” the former national chairman of the New Black Panther Party and current national president of Black Lawyers for Justice, Malik Zulu Shabazz, said 2015 is the time to “build up that army” and go “to the gun range.” Shabazz encouraged listeners to do things that would seem tragic to white America and may even shock our own consciences, “including the killing of police officers.”
POLICE KILLED BY FIREARMS UP 56%
And finally, a new report issued Tuesday by the nonprofit National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund reveals that the number of law enforcement officers killed by firearms in the U.S. jumped by 56 percent in 2014 and included 15 ambush assaults.
DANGER AHEAD IN 2015
As we head into 2015, AlertsUSA urges readers to give serious consideration to the overall threat picture that is forming. Lawlessness within urban centers across the U.S. is resulting in increasingly violent confrontations with police. In turn, the police are then demonized by the mainstream media and elected officials, as opposed to demonizing the criminals. The net result is increased lawless behavior.
And this is where it impacts average, decent citizens. Regardless of the location, if the police back off of enforcement actions, lawlessness will surge. This week, media outlets are reporting that arrests in New York City have dropped a staggering 66% since the shooting of the two officers as police feel betrayed by the mayor and fear for their own safety.
Further, police departments in an increasing number of locations across the U.S. are now mandating that all officers must patrol in pairs, dramatically increasing response times and reducing their ability to show the flag.
Remember that police form the thin blue line which separates civil society from all manner of lawless animals who wish to do us harm. The net result of the increased threats, increased demonization by elected officials and the media as well as the resulting pullback of enforcement efforts is increased crime and danger to the public.
While liberal mainstream news organizations intentionally avoid reporting on the dramatic surge in black on white violent crime and black mob violence out of fear of being labeled racist or not being invited to the next correspondents dinner, AlertsUSA has no such concerns. We will call out the threats in the greatest level of detail possible in order to help subscribers most effectively manage their risk.
To this end, AlertsUSA warns readers that if you have not done so already, now is the time to take advantage of your Second Amendment rights and arm yourself. These problems are not going away anytime soon and 2015 is shaping up to be a dangerous year on many fronts. You need the practiced ability to defend yourself and family.
AlertsUSA continue to closely monitor trends in this area and will immediately notify service subscribers of changes in the overall threat environment, as events warrant.

Flu Outbreak Reaches Epidemic Levels,
Doctors Predict Harsh Season
Jan 03, 2015
What You Need To Know
In early December, AlertsUSA subscribers were notified via SMS messages to their mobile devices of a new CDC warning that this year's flu vaccine has ended up being a poor match for the primary influenza strain in circulation this season.
On December 20th we warned subscribers via the weekly audio update that flu cases were on the rise, and advised listeners to exercise caution around sick individuals and to still consider acquiring an influenza vaccination. According to the CDC, even with the reduced effectiveness of the vaccine, getting vaccinated is the best way to reduce the chances that you will get seasonal flu and spread it to others and may make your illness milder if you do get sick.
This week, subscribers should be aware that the CDC has announced that this year's flu season has officially crossed the epidemic threshold. As previously reported, the predominant influenza strain, AH3N2, is particularly dangerous to the young, and the old, and is brutal across the board. While epidemic flu levels are standard during the annual flu season, this year is expected to particularly hard hitting over the next few months given the issue with the seasonal vaccine.

AlertsUSA recommends subscribers become fanatical about washing their hands, keeping your distance from sick individuals and where possible, boosting you immune system.
Despite the flu season just getting started in earnest, there is already a shortage of antiviral medications such as Tamiflu (see this, this, this and this). Be prepared.

IMMUNE SYSTEM SUPPLEMENTS
This is a topic within which we choose to tread carefully given the wide range of scams, quackery and inconclusive research. As such, we are listing only 2 items for your consideration which are backed by science and that this author uses daily (thus far) with great success.
As we are not medical professionals (and at the recommendation of our lawyers..), we urge you to be smart about it and chat with your doctor about using the items listed below.
According to a 2011 paper published in the Journal of Investigative Medicine? and referenced by the National Institutes of Health, Vitamin D deficiency is solidly associated with a weak immune response and increased susceptibility to infection.
Another paper published in 2010 within the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition is also an interesting read.
The Harvard School of Medicine explains in detail that a Vitamin D deficiency is associated with a host of chronic diseases, such as osteoporosis, heart disease, some cancers, and multiple sclerosis, as well as infectious diseases such as seasonal flu.
As you normally get the most Vitamin D through direct exposure of your skin to sunlight, simple logic dictates you have less of it in the colder months.
You can find inexpensive Vitamin D3 supplements at literally any pharmacy in N. America as well as via AMAZON.
NATROL IMMUNE BOOST w/ EPICORE
EpiCor has undergone six human clinical trials, all of which have been published in peer-reviewed scientific journals and have used a standard dose of 500 mg per day. Five of the six trials conform to the “gold standard” of clinical design in that they were randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trials. Results show that EpiCor strengthens the immune system while it balances immune response.
You may be able to find Epicor at larger pharmacies in N. America. You can certainly acquire it via AMAZON.
As has been the case for over 12 years, AlertsUSA continue to closely monitor the spread of influenza across N. America and will immediately notify service subscribers of new warnings and advisories issued by the CDC or any other developments which heightens the overall threat picture, as events warrant.
Travel Security Update
The U.S. Dept. of State is the authoritative federal source for information on the security situation at travel destinations worldwide. With tensions rapidly increasing in most regions, readers planning on international travel, even to such common destinations as Canada, Mexico or the Caribbean Islands, are strongly encouraged to do a little research on the security situation prior to departure.
