NEW YORK –If the world as you know it falls apart, will you rise up to fight? Discovery Channel’s new one-hour documentary follows citizen militia, survival and prepper groups in Arizona, Florida and Indiana who are preparing for the worst.

After what they consider to be inadequate government responses to tragedies like Hurricane Katrina, these groups believe that disaster will strike – and they must be ready to protect themselves and restore order.

Natural disasters, government collapse and civil war may not be the first thing on the average American’s mind, but members of the “Watchmen of America” militia group are ready to fight back. MILITIA RISING will show viewers how local militias prepare to survive difficult circumstances including massive power outages and civil unrest, and follow them as they learn self-defense tactics to protect their families.

Even thou they have not got the best skills:) atleaste they sum what realize that somethin is goin on and they r tryin to get ready


The Minuteman guy who posted above, is Rick Light, from WRAM. He is a Militia informant that worked against Charles Dyer / July 4 Patriot!


They set up Militias & then set up the members who join. Google : "Operation PatCon" / Patriot Conspiracy.


By the way

The whole watchmen of America is just to sell

Cheap Asian gear and make money for freebur

The other clown in charge of this sham.


Jeff tindal is a fruken clown. Not one day in the military, never even a Boy Scout,

And he wants to be in charge. Like sending a chicken to a dog fight.

The family security group is something that he stole from the Alaska watchmen group in Alaska.

All this clown does is puff up his chest and scream a lot. He needs to

Be butt stroked and brought back to reality. The Indiana dude is a joke.

Really??? He can't walk, but he calls himself a leader. Gimme a break!!


Do the rest of us Real Patriot Militia Men/Woman a favor. Sell your shit and find another hobby. We don't need UN-reliable obstacles in our way who don't want to fight for freedom and restore their nation.


For those of you who are like any of these Dum @@@@ on the Militia Rising Discovery channel. Who favor the Government and believe Militia are for disaster scenarios. You’re Government loving @@@@ who are Traitors to the Republic and the America.


For those of you making assumptions about people. You have no clue what these people did in their lives. I know some of these men personally and they served this country for our freedom. Before you go calling people fat and disgusting think about how you would feel. That man served for your freedom and was hurt serving this country. You have no clue what these people did with their lives. Things happen to people that is beyond their control. These men love their country and want to help their fellow man. These tools as you call them offer assistance… Read more »


Wow, didn't this comment thread bring out the A**holes of the internet.

Where do I even begin? Well I was watching this show in the other room and my wife had to keep telling me to be quiet because I was laughing very loudly. As a Vet, these guys were a bunch of hillbilly TOOLS! So a few thought, the Arizona watchmen, you chase mules all day long and claim there are bounties on your heads from cartel leaders? I would probably say that’s a false statement, I assure you, they care less about a bunch of fat gringos playing army man. Can we say DOUCHEBAGS !!! Now for the Indiana militia… Read more »


Could Obama use NDAA To Arrest Militias on the Premise members are Militants and Belligerents that pose a threat to National Security? Recently the Obama administration stated to Federal Judge Katherine Forest that under (NDAA) The National Defense Act of 2012 the President had authorization to lock up belligerents indefinitely. That they (were justified) to lock belligerents up indefinitely—because cases involving belligerents directly-aligned with militants against the good of America—warrants such punishment.) Pres. Obama could use NDAA provisions to order U.S. Military Forces to round up without evidence, millions of Americans including militias by alleging they are belligerents or a… Read more »

Micheal carrigan

its easy to talk crap about peaple while you sit on your butt and watch the world fall apart. Now I do not have tv or i would have loved to watch it being in a milita my self with very higly trained men. I can not say if these guys did good or not but at least they are doing something and training. thats how you get better. I would trust any of my men to get any of my family out of any conditions.


At least they are trying to do something. Which is more than likely, more than you can say. Instead of beating them down for their efforts , why don't you try to do something better . I mean after all you seem to know oh so much more about it . Nothing is perfect , including you. We almost never get it right the first time. America has'nt needed a militia for decades ,but now we do . I would say it's probley a learning experiance. Trial and error. And what does it matter if they are old ? Something… Read more »


Thanks but no thanks. I'll take care of myself.


MM Is a fraud and iireevanlt why would anyone want to take his word on apparently he is trying to for his last hooray… the community a favor and go away..iam sure there a rock big enough for you to climb under


This is a farce,, the Watchmen are not the top trained or even the majority of the Militia movement!! To say so means that Discovery has been mislead by the Watchmen to this conclusion or is being misleading in its content!! There are many more better trained Militias than the Watchmen at best!! What about the Modern Militia Movement, SECOM, ARM and the biggest out there WRAM (Well Regulated American Militias) Seems to me the truth is not being told here! So we after truth or fiction? To think the Watchmen are the only real militia's is very misleading and… Read more »

If they were actually making an impact on the cartel they would have them killed with little to no effort..And the florida boys can stay away from my house my family would be much safer with a half dozen baboons comin in my house droppin guns…These people obviously have a longing to belong to somthing…they should stick… Read more »
