Your Survival Guy has been telling you for years to escape the city, and look for a better America where you can build an “island” of freedom for you and your family. Many Americans have been doing just that, moving to my Super States, where they’re listened to, and protected by their politicians, rather than persecuted, taxed, and ignored.

Now Americans have another reason to leave the tyrannical states for the Super States. They want freedom over their own bodies, not vaccine mandates that force them to get medical treatments against their will.

They also want to avoid the crime that Democratic politicians have been encouraging since Summer 2020. Even those politicians themselves are not immune to the criminals they’ve unleashed on America. Look what happened to two “#DEFUNDTHEPOLICE” Democrats recently.
The NY Post reports:
Two Democrats who supported police reform in Philadelphia and Chicago were both carjacked at gunpoint within 24 hours of each other.
Illinois state Sen. Kimberly Lightford (D-Maywood) was targeted in suburban Chicago on Tuesday night, while Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon (D-Pa.) was carjacked Wednesday afternoon after an event in South Philadelphia.
Lightford was driving with her husband, Eric McKennie, in Broadview at about 9:45 p.m. when three masked suspects in a Durango SUV hijacked the couple’s black Mercedes.
Police said “multiple gunshots” were fired during the incident but Lightford and her husband weren’t physically hurt.
The suspects fled in the Mercedes and Durango, according to police.
Lightford, the state Senate majority leader, said in a statement that she was still trying to process the trauma.
“First and foremost I am thankful that my husband and I are alive and physically unharmed. I am trying to process the trauma of what happened. I want to thank everyone who has offered their love and support,” she said.
Her ordeal came hours before Scanlon, a fellow Democrat, was carjacked at gunpoint in a separate incident as she returned to her blue Acura MDX at about 2:45 p.m. Wednesday.
Scanlon was targeted in South Philly by two men in a dark SUV who demanded she hand over her keys, police said.
Her personal cellphone, government-issued phone and purse were inside her car when the carjackers took off.
Scanlon’s spokesperson said she was “physically unharmed” following the ordeal.
Her car was found in neighboring Delaware with five suspects inside just hours later, according to police.
The suspects, whose names weren’t immediately released, were all in custody Thursday.
Mayor Jim Kenney said he was “appalled to learn of this violent crime” against the congresswoman, whom he described as his friend and colleague.
“My thoughts are with her during what I’m sure is a traumatic time,” he wrote on Twitter.
“Everyone deserves to feel safe in our city, and sadly that hasn’t always been the case this year. It’s disheartening and infuriating that criminals feel emboldened to commit such a reckless crime in the middle of the day in what should be a place of peace — one of our city’s parks.”
Both Scanlon and Lightford have previously spoken out about police reform — especially in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis last year.
Drivers aren’t the only ones at risk from the rampant crime in America’s blue cities. Smash and grabs are becoming a regular occurrence. Look at the sad case of BFF Bikes in the Bucktown area of Chicago, robbed twice within weeks. CBS Chicago reports:
The crime plaguing Chicago has taken a toll on businesses – especially small business owners.
As CBS 2’s Suzanne Le Mignot reported Monday, thieves broke into BFF Bikes at 2056 N. Damen Ave. in Bucktown two different times nearly two weeks apart. One of the windows is boarded up – for the second time.
On surveillance video, an alarm is heard blaring while thieves jump out of a broken window a the bike shop. Moments later, one man is seen running down the sidewalk while rolling a bike, followed by a second man doing the same with two bikes – before he heads into a church courtyard.
“They went for the more expensive bikes,” said BFF Bikes owner Gillian Forsyth. “They kind of knew what they were looking for.”
Forsyth says her business was broken into on Nov. 30 and Dec. 13 between 6:30 a.m. and 7 a.m. – in broad daylight.
“It’s frightening. It’s really frightening,” Forsyth said. “They ran off down the alley next to the church here, and you can see them put the bikes in their car – and they just drove off.”
“When we’re like, as a small business, worried about constantly being robbed like that – we’re very easy to break into – and we’re not getting any response,” Forsyth said, “and I’m not blaming the police or anything – I’m sure they have a multitude of cases. There were five bike shops broken into in the space of two or three weeks. There doesn’t seem to be a collaborative effort, to solve this problem.”
Action Line: If you’re saying “we’re not getting any response,” when your business has been broken into twice within weeks, you need to escape the city, and look for a better America.
