War on Terror?!!

Feds more concerned about running drills than shutting down border 

 

 

 

 
 

How could there be a War on Terror and actually say that we're having a war against terrorism, and leave the borders wide open? If you were the President of the United States, or I were the President of the United States, and 9/11 really happened the way they want us to believe it happened, the first thing you would do is shut down the borders, so people couldn't get in the country to harm you. But they left the borders wide open. Because the bankers want the borders open, because they want a one-world government. They want a North American Union. They don't want borders here.  9/11 was only a manifestation. It was done to create a fear in the American public, so that we will obey what they want us to do.

Drug cartels across the border are just as brutal as ISIS

Horrific violence not isolated to Middle East

 

Ellen Weiss, Oct 23, 2014

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. officials have argued that atrocities committed by the militant group ISIS are barbaric and that the group is a threat to the homeland, but it’s worth remembering that the horrific violence perpetrated just across the U.S. border by Mexican drug cartels is equally barbaric and the cartels also pose a threat to Americans.

This week brought another bloody reminder of the cartel’s brutality. Mexican activist Maria Del Rosario Fuentes Rubio, a physician and citizen journalist who had taken a prominent stand against Mexican cartels on social media, died with a bullet in her head. And her killers, in an obvious effort to terrorize others, tweeted her murder.

Yes, as President Barack Obama noted in his Sept. 24 address to the UN General Assembly, ISIS is leaving a trail of rape, beheadings, dead children and mass graves. The numbers are terrifying: More than 5,500 people have been killed in Iraq since June, according to the United Nations.

But here are some numbers – also terrifying – from just across the U.S.-Mexico border: In 2013, Mexican drug cartels murdered more than 16,000 people, and Human Rights Watch estimates more than 60,000 people were killed in drug-related violence from 2006 to 2012.

Here’s the part, however, that seems to get overlooked. Mexican drug cartels have been spreading out across U.S. cities for years. From Texas, to Columbus, Ohio, to Raleigh, North Carolina – in 2010, at least 1,000 U.S. cities cited the presence of one of the four major drug cartels according to a U.S. Justice Department report.  According to that report:

There is no disputing that Mexican cartels are operating in the United States. Drug policy analysts estimate that about 90 percent of the cocaine, heroin, marijuana and methamphetamine on U.S. streets came here courtesy of the cartels and their distribution networks in Mexico and along the Southwestern border. DEA officials say they have documented numerous cases of cartel activity in Houston, Los Angeles, Chicago and Atlanta.

Cartel violence isn’t restricted to one side of the border. “Spillover violence” has taken thousands of U.S. lives, according to the FBI. In other words, the cartel threat – while certainly different from the jihadist-style threat of ISIS – is nevertheless a threat.

A whole stream of disturbing statistics about the Mexican drug cartels was brought to light in an opinion piece written by Musa al-Gharbia, a research fellow at the Southwest Initiative for the Study of Middle East Conflicts. This is not a list for the fainthearted:

Beheadings – Mexico is ranked directly below Iraq on the Reporters Without Borders World Press Freedom Index. On May 13, 2012, Mexican authorities found at least 49 decapitated and dismembered bodies along a highway in Nuevo Leon state, between the cities of Monterrey and Reynosa.

Killing children and women - As if decapitations and hanging dead bodies from bridges wasn’t enough, the drug cartels have made a practice of targeting women and children to further terrorize communities or prove they are tougher than the next gang. Children are shot in cars, in their grandmother’s arms or sitting next to their parents.

Mass graves: Mexican authorities have discovered several mass graves with hundreds of corpses of victims of the drug gangs in recent years. Some are filled with victims of the drug wars, others with those murdered for refusing to join the gangs. Most recently, as part of the search for 43 young Mexicans studying to become teachers, searchers have found six mass graves but so far none of the bodies has been identified as any of the missing students. Six mass graves, and they still haven’t found the right mass grave.

As noted, the comparison between ISIS and the cartels has its limits. Operation Inherent Resolve (the silly name the administration has given America’s military action against ISIS) and the “War on Drugs” are about different threats. ISIS wants to vanquish all sorts of infidels, including Americans. The drug cartels are about business – and anyone who gets in their way – including Americans – is a target.

It comes down to this: If the U.S. is being spurred into action against ISIS because of indignation and a threat to Americans, then it is worth remembering that a beheading in Mexico is just as horrifying as one in Iraq or Syria – and a threat against Americans is still a threat whether it is the result of ideology or criminal drug traffickers.

PSYOPS

-- Psychological Operations --

“People in general just will NOT, take their heads out of the sand!”


Psyops, or psychological operations, is a term used to describe the techniques of psychological manipulation used in warfare. These operations are used to deceive, confuse, disrupt and demoralize the enemy, with an aim toward weakening enemy resistance or even causing enemy forces to surrender and enemy populations to capitulate.

Document: Army Preparing to Use Lethal Force Against “Unarmed Civilians” During “Full Scale Riots” in U.S.

Training manual outlines "sniper response" during crowd control operations

 

by Paul Joseph Watson | August 18, 2014

A document released by the U.S. Army details preparations for “full scale riots” within the United States during which troops may be forced to engage in a “lethal response” to deal with unruly crowds of demonstrators.

The appearance of the document amidst growing unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, with the National Guard now being called in to deal with the disorder, is an ominous coincidence.

The 132-page document, titled U.S. Army Techniques Publication 3-39.33: Civil Disturbances (PDF), was written in April 2014 and recently obtained by Public Intelligence.

The document makes it clear that the techniques detailed therein are to be applied both outside and inside the “continental United States (CONUS)” in the event of “unruly and violent crowds” where it is “necessary to quell riots and restore public order.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCNHsvS4QkA
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eb4He1gEP6U

 

The training manual outlines scenarios under which, “Civil unrest may range from simple, nonviolent protests that address specific issues, to events that turn into full-scale riots.”

The most shocking aspect of the document is the fact that it describes the deployment of a “lethal response” directed against “unarmed civilians,” including “sniper response” and “small arms direct fire.”

Under the heading “sniper response,” the document states, “Ensure that target leaders or troublemakers are targeted,” in addition to a passage which states, “Exploit the psychological effect of an attack.”

 

 

Under the heading “small arms direct fire,” the manual states, “Escalate gradually, starting with a small caliber, single round and work up to a large caliber, automatic.”

Another graphic which depicts “escalation of trauma” directs soldiers how to use “riot batons” in order to cause the necessary level of injury or death to the subject. “Deadly force final target areas” include the back of the neck, the solar plexus, the neck, the spine and the head.

 

 

In light of events in Ferguson, where a predominantly black community has faced off with militarized police, it’s interesting to note that the manual makes reference to civil unrest that can arise out of “ethnic hatred” and, “Community unrest (that) results in urban conflicts that arise from highly emotional social and economic issues.” The document also mentions how rioters target “retail stores,” as happened during the looting in Ferguson.

 

LINK :

Posse Comitatus Act

“Significant ethnic differences in a community can create an atmosphere of distrust, even hatred…… (and) can cause an eruption of civil disorder that can lead to full riots,” states the document.

Although the document makes reference to the Constitutional rights of American citizens it goes on to stress that such protections are null and void under a state of emergency, asserting that Posse Comitatus, which is supposed to limit the power of the federal government to use military personnel domestically, “does not apply” under declared “emergency authority” or “When the need for the protection of federal property or federal functions exists.”

It is important to stress that this training manual applies to U.S. Army operations in foreign countries as well as domestically on U.S. soil. Indeed, section 2-18 of the document goes into detail about domestic protests such as the 1999 anti-WTO demonstration in Seattle.

The emergence of the document as National Guard troops prepare to descend on Ferguson, Missouri to deal with looting and civil unrest follows a report we published just a few weeks before the outbreak of the Ferguson riots which documented how National Guard troops were training to detain unruly African-American citizens in prison camps before handing them over to police.

In a special video report, Alex Jones documented how the story was part of wider preparations by the government for domestic disorder that have been ongoing for years.

We have reported previously on similar documents that outline how the U.S. Army would be forced to resort to lethal measures in order to deal with unruly Americans during times of emergency within the United States.

In 2012 we covered FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations, a U.S. Army manual that describes how political activists in prison camps will be indoctrinated by specially assigned psychological operations officers. The document makes numerous references to how government agencies like the DHS, ICE and FEMA will be involved in the domestic internment of U.S. citizens during “civil support operations.”

A second US Army Military Police manual that was leaked months later also outlined how military assets would be used domestically to quell riots, confiscate firearms and even kill Americans on U.S. soil during mass civil unrest.

U.S. troops and National Guard also worked with local police to incarcerate Americans in detention camps during drills Alex Jones covered in 1999 in Oakland, California.

A report produced in 2008 by the U.S. Army War College’s Strategic Institute warned that the United States may experience massive civil unrest in the wake of a series of crises which it termed “strategic shock.”

“Widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security,” stated the report, authored by [Ret.] Lt. Col. Nathan Freir, adding that the military may be needed to quell “purposeful domestic resistance”.

Rex 84, short for Readiness Exercise 1984, was established under the pretext of a “mass exodus” of illegal aliens crossing the Mexican/US border.

During the Iran-Contra hearings in 1987, however, it was revealed that the program was a secretive “scenario and drill” developed by the federal government to suspend the Constitution, declare martial law, assign military commanders to take over state and local governments, and detain large numbers of American citizens determined by the government to be “national security threats.”

 Video Shows Troops Training to Intern Citizens in Fort Lauderdale

Martial law-style drill caught on camera


 

by Paul Joseph Watson | March 29, 2015 

Footage out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida shot earlier this week shows military and law enforcement practicing the internment of citizens during martial-law style training.

The clip shows armed troops arresting role players on the street before a column of prisoners are marched towards a mock internment facility. Black Hawk choppers are also seen whizzing between buildings.

 

 

The exercise was accompanied by very little media coverage. A Sun-Sentinel report said that Broward County police would be “assisting members of the U.S. Special Operations Forces who are undergoing urban warfare training.”

The drill, which was held in locations the military refused to disclose beforehand, began on March 17 and ended on Friday. 200 military personnel from all four branches, Air Force, Army, Marines and Navy, took part in the exercise.

“The goal is to prepare participants in realistic, unfamiliar training conditions before they deploy for combat overseas,” states the report. Residents were advised “not to be alarmed by the Black Hawk helicopters in the sky.”

Broward County also saw similar drills back in March 2014, when Navy SEALS practicing storming a university building from a helicopter.

 

Concerns continue to circulate that such drills are designed for dual purpose and are part of a plan to acclimate Americans to accept martial law in a time of national emergency. As we have exhaustively documented, the fact that preparations are being made to use the military during domestic unrest is manifestly provable.

Jade Helm, an upcoming military drill that will involve nine states, caused controversy after Texas and Utah were labeled “hostile” territory in documents related to the exercise.

As we reported earlier this week, the exercise will involve soldiers operating “undetected amongst civilian populations,” to see if they can infiltrate without being noticed.

Video: Veteran Pulled Over by Camo-Wearing Cops In Armored Vehicle
"I didn't know we were in Iraq"

 

by Paul Joseph Watson | April 13, 2015

A video out of Gainesville, Florida shows a man being pulled over by camoflague-wearing cops driving an armored vehicle, a disturbing reminder that law enforcement in America is becoming increasingly militarized.

The driver, Lucas Jewell, was pulled over after he performed a rude hand gesture directed at the cops, but the issue is not about whether or not the Jewell should have been harassed for flipping the bird, or whether he was also engaged in a “sexual act” as another officer claimed.

The issue is why are police officers performing routine traffic patrols in armored vehicles that wouldn’t look out of place in occupied Afghanistan?

“I’m really getting pulled over by a tank right now?” Jewell, a Navy veteran, states, to which an Alachua County Sheriff’s Deputy responds “yes sir”.

Jewell refers to a U.S. Court of Appeals ruling which found that a “gesture of insult is not the basis for a reasonable suspicion of a traffic violation or impending criminal activity.”

However, the cop is not interested and instead demands to see the Jewell’s license before making him step out of the vehicle.

The officer then starts to get angry and threatens to arrest Jewell for “resisting” because he is not obeying orders quickly enough.

The cop claims that Jewell performed an “improper hand signal”. Jewell responds by expressing his shock that a “safe community” would need tanks patrolling the streets, stating, “I didn’t know we were in Iraq”.

Another cop then objects to being filmed, claiming that the phone camera could be a firearm, before Jewell is eventually allowed to leave.

“Deputies felt the need to dress up like soldiers because it was Orange and Blue Weekend, a three-day celebration of festivities highlighted by a scrimmage football game between Florida Gator teammates that was free and open to all ages,” reports Carlos Miller. 

Concerns about the militarization of U.S. law enforcement have heightened since last year’s unrest in Ferguson, Missouri.

In December, we reported on comments made by a Spokane Sheriff’s Deputy defending the use of an MRAP armored vehicle by saying it was needed to deal with the threat posed by “constitutionalists”.

“I mean, we’ve got a lot of constitutionalists and a lot of people that stockpile weapons, lots of ammunition, they have weapons here locally,” the officer said.

During a New Hampshire city council meeting in 2013, former Marine Corps Colonel Peter Martino, who was stationed in Fallujah and trained Iraqi soldiers, asserted that the Department of Homeland Security was working with law enforcement to build a “domestic army,” because the federal government is afraid of its own citizens. Martino was responding to the city’s Police Chief, who justified the necessity for the acquisition of an armored ‘Bearcat’ vehicle by citing the “threat” posed by libertarians, sovereign citizen adherents, and Occupy activists in the region.

As we have exhaustively documented, the use of armored vehicles is just one sign of how law enforcement authorities are gearing up to deal with civil unrest in America.

 

 

 

 

Posse Comitatus Act

U.S. Army Training to Fight Black Americans

"Doomsday Disneyland" facility used as practice ground for civil unrest

by Paul Joseph Watson | July 17, 2014

A promotional video touting FEMA’s emergency response capabilities shows U.S. National Guard troops training to detain unruly African-American citizens in prison camps before handing them over to police.

The video appears on the official YouTube channel for Guardian Centers, an 830 acre “disaster preparedness and tactical training validation center” located in Georgia which is routinely used by FEMA and other government agencies to practice emergency response procedures.

After the 2 minute mark in the clip, the scene cuts to a black woman who is struggling to escape from the clutches of a uniformed soldier. The area is surrounded by concertina wire and guarded by other troops.

The clip then shows the woman, along with another African-American, being handed over to local police before being driven away.

Described by CNN as the “doomsday Disneyland,” Guardian Centers is a mock city complete with a subway station that “allow(s) a variety of responders to do a variety of drills in one location.”

The sight of National Guard troops training to detain Americans in prison camps is unlikely to quell concerns that authorities are preparing for domestic disorder.

Back in 2012, we reported on FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations, a U.S. Army manual that describes how political activists in prison camps will be indoctrinated by specially assigned psychological operations officers. The document makes numerous references to how government agencies like the DHS, ICE and FEMA will be involved in the domestic internment of U.S. citizens during “civil support operations.”

A second US Army Military Police manual that was leaked months later also outlined how military assets would be used domestically to quell riots, confiscate firearms and even kill Americans on U.S. soil during mass civil unrest.

U.S. troops and National Guard also worked with local police to incarcerate Americans in detention camps during drills Alex Jones covered in 1999 in Oakland, California.

A report produced in 2008 by the U.S. Army War College’s Strategic Institute warned that the United States may experience massive civil unrest in the wake of a series of crises which it termed “strategic shock.”

“Widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security,” stated the report, authored by [Ret.] Lt.

Despite innumerable indications that the federal government is making preparations for riots, the Department of Homeland Security denied last year that it was gearing up for domestic disorder. In 2011, DHS chief Janet Napolitano directed ICE to prepare for a mass influx of immigrants into the United States, calling for the plan to deal with the “shelter” and “processing” of large numbers of people.

In the video below, Alex Jones highlights how the Guardian Centers video is yet another startling indication that authorities in the United States are preparing for civil unrest as America increasingly begins to resemble a militarized police state.

Brazen Military Drills to Tour America in 2013 

 

Following brazen military drills in Miami and Houston, police in Illinois plan an active shooter scenario in a suburban Chicago school today.

Students will be in classrooms at the Cary-Grove High School when police fire blanks in the school hallway "in an effort to provide our teachers and students some familiarity with the sound of gunfire," according to principal Jay Sargeant, CBS Chicago reported on Tuesday.

"From the school's request, they want to let the students know what the sound of gunshot might be, should that occur in their school," Cary Police Chief Steven Casstevens added.

According to the school, parents were informed of the drill via email. Parent Kassy Pinter told CBS Chicago she did not receive the email.

Many parents believe the "code red" drill is inappropriate and will frighten children. "If you need to run a drill, you run a drill," parent Sharon Miller told a local radio station. "They run fire drills all the time, but they don't run up and down the hallway with a flamethrower," she said in response to the plan by police to fire blanks in the school hallway. http://www.infowars.com/gunfire-in-the-hallway-illinois-school-plans-code-red...

Nashville Police Stockpile Weapons Of War
Items include grenade launchers

by Ben Hall | NewsChannel5.com | July 20, 2014


NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A massive military build-up is underway right here in Tennessee.

Local law enforcement agencies are snatching up huge amounts of weapons -- from the Department of Defense -- used in fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Items include grenade launchers, mine-resistant vehicles and guns that have been deemed as surplus by the Pentagon.

The equipment is cheap or free for local law enforcement agencies to acquire.

The federal program has fueled a debate about the militarization of our police departments.

McMinn County is located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. It boasts beautiful scenery, but its sheriff's department can boast something else.

The department received more military surplus guns than any other local department in the state last year.

"We actually reconfigured the whole armory to accommodate all of this," said Sheriff Joe Guy.

Sheriff Guy oversees 31 officers and investigators, but his department received 161 army rifles and pistols, including 71 M16 rifles and 71 .45-caliber pistols.

NewsChannel 5 Investigates asked, "Why does your department need all these guns?"

Sheriff Guy responded, "Well, we don't need this many. There was a little error in the order."

The Sheriff said the Army surplus program doubled his initial order, but he hasn't sent the guns back.

"They're here as our department grows. We'll have additional firearms for future officers," Sheriff Guy said.

McMinn County is not alone.

A spreadsheet obtained by NewsChannel 5 Investigates shows thousands of pieces of military equipment going to Tennessee law enforcement agencies.

Equipment used to fight in Iraq and Afghanistan is now going to local departments.

"The way this stuff is being distributed, it's kind of reckless," said author Radley Balko.

He has written a book, Rise of the Warrior Cop, that raises concerns about militarization of American police departments.

"What we've seen is just a massive transfer of gear, guns, vehicles and other weaponry," Balko said.

Law enforcement agencies can go to a website administered by the Department of Defense and look for used equipment.

On the day we went to McMinn County, the department was looking for Humvees. Sheriff Guy reviewed what was available.

"It looks good," Sheriff Guy said to an employee who was looking up a vehicle on-line.

The employee responded, "It's got 14-hundred miles on it."

"How many of those did you put in for?" Sheriff Guy asked.

"Three," his employee answered.

Sheriff Guy responded, "Three of those and one truck."

Departments pay a registration fee, then all the equipment is free. Individual departments must pay for transportation and maintenance.

"The disbursement across the country is so uneven and random and sort of based on who is good at manipulating the system," Balko said.

Thirty Tennessee departments just received mine-resistant vehicles. They were designed to protect soldiers from road side bombs in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Lebanon Public Safety, La Vergne and Hendersonville Police Departments all received MRAPS.

"This is our newest armored protective vehicle," said Mike Justice with Lebanon Public Safety.

Justice hopes Lebanon police officers never use it.

"The situations we would use this vehicle in is hostage negotiations, putting this vehicle between the bad guy and the good guys," Justice said.

He said the surplus program is critical to smaller departments. It provides equipment is not just military in nature including trucks, lawn mowers and tents.

Many small departments could not afford them on their own.

"As a taxpayer, I paid for it the first time. When I paid my federal income tax, I paid for this vehicle. So the citizens of Lebanon now get the benefit from it," Justice said standing beside the MRAP.

But Balko said the militarization of police departments comes at a price, like more SWAT raids.

"What we've done is encourage the police to become more like the military," Balko said.

"When you surround yourself with the weapons of war, with the language of war, you're going to be much less likely to look for ways of resolving disputes using the least amount of force possible," Balko continued.

Our investigation also found some departments can't keep up with the weapons they're getting.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol reported two M14s missing last year.

A TWRA park ranger had an M16 stolen from his vehicle -- it was later recovered.

And at the tiny Bean Station Police Department in East Tennessee, the police chief's son took an M16 from the program and was arrested for impersonating a police officer.

"It's concerning that this stuff is getting lost or stolen because I think it again indicates how little monitoring the Pentagon is doing once this stuff gets out of their reach," Balko said.

Sheriff Guy keeps his guns locked up and knows where each one is.

But for some, a department with five times more guns than patrol officers raises questions about the military surplus program.

"There was never any sort of public debate on this, or public discourse. It all sort of happened under the radar, and I think that's concerning," Balko said.

Late Thursday, the Department of General Services told NewsChannel 5 Investigates that it has suspended the state coordinator of the Law Enforcement Support Office (LESO).

Elbert Baker is on administrative leave with pay. The Department of General Services stated it discovered that it had given inaccurate and incomplete information to NewsChannel 5 Investigates.

We had asked for documentation involving missing weapons in the LESO program.

The state has alerted its auditors and is conducting a review of LESO files, records and internal controls, a spokesperson said. The auditors have notified the comptroller's office they are investigating a possible internal deficiency.

Finally, the Department of General Services expressed thanks to NewsChannel 5 Investigates for bringing "to light a record-keeping deficiency of which our department was previously unaware."

 

 

 

 

 

 

UN Accelerates Plan For Global Gun Confiscation After Collapse
United Nations hiring 'disarmament, demobilization and reintegration' officers

 

The United Nations is gearing up for gun confiscation in the event of a societal collapse in numerous countries by hiring “disarmament, demobilization and reintegration” officers who will be trained to seize guns “from the civilian population.”

A posting on the United Nations Career Opportunities page announces a vacancy for the position of “Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Officer” under the UN’s Department of Peacekeeping Operations based out of New York.

 

UN Publicly Prepares For Gun Confiscation In US

We know they have been planning it for years, and the documents are legion. Now they are preparing to go operational.

 

The UN’s page on DDR operations explains what role the DDR officer will be expected to undertake;

Disarmament is the collection, documentation, control and disposal of small arms, ammunition, explosives and light and heavy weapons from combatants and often from the civilian population.

Demobilization is the formal and controlled discharge of active combatants from armed forces and groups, including a phase of “reinsertion” which provides short-term assistance to ex-combatants.

Reintegration is the process by which ex-combatants acquire civilian status and gain sustainable employment and income. It is a political, social and economic process with an open time-frame, primarily taking place in communities at the local level.

The objective of the DDR process is to contribute to security and stability in post-conflict environments so that recovery and development can begin. DDR helps create an enabling environment for political and peace processes by dealing with security problem that arises when ex-combatants are trying to adjust to normal life, during the vital transition period from conflict to peace and development.

Although the posting prompted feverish speculation that the UN was about to embark on a mass gun confiscation program within the United States, it’s important to note that the DDR program is only currently active in countries like the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ivory Coast and Haiti.

However, concerns are understandable given the acceleration in anti-Second Amendment rhetoric and executive action on behalf of the Obama administration since the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre.

During a town hall event last week, Hillary Clinton asserted that gun control opponents should not be allowed to hold an opinion that “terrorizes” America.

Earlier this month, President Barack Obama also cited Australia’s draconian gun confiscation program as an example to be followed by the U.S.

“It’s no secret that the US government has been preparing riot gear, guns, ammunition, and detention centers for a major calamity that will likely involve violence and widespread civil unrest,” writes Mac Slavo. Should such an event ever take place the first order of business will include a declaration of martial law. And just as we saw during Hurricane Katrina, when the U.S. Constitution has been suspended gun confiscation is soon to follow.”

Since the 1990′s, Alex Jones and Infowars reporters have attended numerous urban warfare training drills inside the United States, many of which included exercises based around disarming American citizens. Foreign troops were also present at many of these drills.

Infowars first became aware of this story a week ago having been contacted by active duty military officials who saw the advertisement before it was posted publicly and we are currently working on a deeper angle that promises to provide further insight.

For anyone who still doubts that domestic gun confiscation would be plausible in the aftermath of a catastrophe, watch the short documentary below [Leaked Video: FEMA preparing Military Police For Gun Confiscations and Martial Law.] which highlights how authorities exploited Hurricane Katrina to seize firearms, including those belonging to residents who weren’t even affected by the disaster.

Posse Comitatus Act

 

The plans to implement martial law in America have been taking shape for decades, hidden behind "Continuity of Government" contingency planning. Now, with public outcry over the banker bailout bill at fever pitch, all of the pieces are in place for the U.S. Army to start policing American citizens.

20 Drills that Prove the DHS’ Official New Enemy is the American People

Posse Comitatus ActOut of 47 “scenarios” being practiced by first responders during Urban Shield 2013 this October 25 – 28 in the San Francisco Bay Area, at least 20 of them are “domestic” – either stated explicitly, or implied (see below in BOLD CAPS) – and possibly more.

Overall, the scenarios vary widely in scope – up to and including “odor investigation” – but the “domestic terrorists” are generally characterized as being anything from “anarchists” (Tea Partiers? Christians? Patriots?) to “homegrown” terrorists (recent American-Moslem converts duped into FBI-sting operations?)

Interesting to note that, as of this writing, the English “Urban Shield” Wikipedia entry has disappeared… but you can still get it in French. (Too bad for you if you don’t read French.)

However, there is still a brief mention of Urban Shield in the English Wikipedia entry for the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office (ASCO).

According to Wikipedia’s ASCO entry, Urban Shield is the largest urban “SWAT” exercise in America. Always held in autumn, it provides “opportunities” for first-responder teams from all over the nation to train in what appears to be mostly “terrorist” scenarios.

(As an aside – since I scan the news feeds daily – I’ve been noticing variations of ALL these “scenarios” making the news on a regular basis, including recently locking down an entire school district in Richmond, California due to an “odor investigation”… for an odor which turned out to be from a smelly barge starting its engine several miles outside the city limits. Oh, the hysteria.)

You should also be pleased and comforted to note that among the many “public/private partners” (and corporate sponsors) taking part in this year’s Urban Shield will be the Boy Scouts, FedEx and Verizon Wireless.

And, in addition to the 18 federal agencies listed (including Louisiana State University?), there will also be 12 foreign countries keeping us safe from domestic terrorists: Israel, Brazil, Guam, Israeli Yamam, Norway, Switzerland, France, Jordan, Bahrain, Singapore, Canada and Qatar.

With all this “help” – in what is turning out to be a huge multi-billion dollar industry – it makes you wonder who is keeping us safe from the “helpers?”

Troops Deployed Ahead of Economic Collapse & Gun Confiscation

The economic collapse, and ensuing civil unrest is coming - or so we've been told. Why else would Homeland Security buy up more than 2 billion bullets, purchase more than 2700 tanks and stock pile weaponry all while government white papers outline preparations for a martial law containment of society?

Ahead of that breakdown of society, Washington and the powers that control it have deployed troops across America to train for domestic operation and acclimate the public to their presence. The friendlies, engaging in benign and innocuous activities, will foster trust among the people and let down their guard when things go dark later. It is classic psyops at work.

In that context, we see an acceleration of National Guard and regular Army troops used at public sporting events, in crowd control at festivals and operating with police in law enforcement checkpoints, all in violation of Posse Comitatus. Small examples of this have been occurring regularly in Texas, with a National or State Guard presence at Kite Festivals, Texas Independence celebrations and other public events.

EBT Card Users Threaten Rodney King-Style Riots

Looting hit several Walmarts after system was down for just hours

 

Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
October 15, 2013

EBT card users are threatening to stage Rodney King-style riots in Los Angeles if the electronic food stamp system crashes again, following Saturday’s failure which prompted looting at several Walmart stores.

 

 

An EBT card user interviewed in the video above (2 minutes 30) comments, “They better resolve something because if it stays like this there’s gonna be an uproar in the city of L.A.” When the man is asked to clarify, he respond, “A Rodney King baby!”

The man is referring to the 1992 L.A. riots, spurred by the Rodney King beating, which resulted in 53 deaths, 2,000 injuries and over $1 billion dollars in property damages.

Several Walmart stores suffered looting and “mini-riots” following Saturday’s EBT card shutoff, which was caused after a routine check by vendor Xerox Corp. resulted in a system failure.

Managers were forced to close a Walmart in Philadelphia, Mississippi when people reacted to the failure by staging a “mini-riot.”

Meanwhile, at Walmart stores in Springhill and Mansfield, Louisiana, shoppers attempted to loot hundreds of dollars worth of groceries after the glitch temporarily allowed them to make unlimited purchases on their EBT cards.

“Walmart and local police in Springhill and Mansfield confirmed to CBS affiliate KSLA that officers were called into the stores to help maintain order Saturday as shoppers swept through the aisles at two stores and bought as much as they could carry,” reported CBS News.

 

 

A man who entered the Walmart in Mansfield just after the looters fled saw rows of empty shelves that had been stripped bare.

As we highlighted yesterday, if looting began after just hours of the EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer) system being down, imagine what would happen if food stamps were delayed for a period of five days.

That’s what will happen if the US fails to raise its debt ceiling by the end of this week. Social Security checks will also be delayed.

Numerous EBT card users also took to Twitter following Saturday’s failure and said they expected riots to occur.

 

 

 






 

Leaked Video: FEMA Preparing Military Police For Gun Confiscations and Martial Law 

MP told Constitution may be suspended by DHS

 

Kit Daniels
Infowars.com
October 26, 2013

Infowars has confirmed the identity and authenticity of the source of the video below as a member of the U.S. Army military police in Arizona.

 

 

 

 

The video, shot in September 2013, shows an army commander briefing the MPs on their new command structure under the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Department of Homeland Security for domestic operations with the National Guard.

The MP began recording the exchange after being shocked to hear that they were now under FEMA control.

In this video you can clearly hear the commander discuss the suspension of the Constitution for martial law and gun confiscations in America.

In essence, the military police is to provide security for FEMA while the agency confiscates our guns during a government-declared domestic crisis.

“They did that in Katrina, right,” the commander said. “They just go on and take away people’s guns.”

This is yet another piece of the larger pattern of demonization of gun owners, libertarians, conservatives, Christians and anyone who will not bow down to enslavement by a hijacked government occupied by ruthless tyrants who desire only total control.

We’ve already seen gun confiscations in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2005:

 

More to come — this article will be updated further.

A video shows unmarked military gunboats patrolling the canals around Slidell, Louisiana.

Apparently, the residents have never seen this in the area before.

Is this part of some kind of drill or is it just normal now in the new Amerika to see armed troops patrolling public canals?

 Posse Comitatus Act

Army Conducts Nighttime Exercises in Downtown Chicago

Posse Comitatus Act

Following up on recent and unannounced training exercises in Florida and Washington state, the U.S. military is conducting a drill in Chicago.

The Windy City’s Office of Emergency Management and Communications (OEMC) told the Chicago Tribune on Tuesday it is providing support for “routine military training exercises,” including flying helicopters in the downtown area of the city at night.

“The training sites have been carefully selected to minimize the impact on the daily routine of residents,” the OEMC said in a statement released to the public.

According to a 2013 U.S. Census Bureau report, 2,695,598 people live in Chicago. Population density is 11,841.8 residents per square mile, making it one of the most populated urban areas in the United States.

The “realistic urban training” conducted by the U.S. Special Operations Command, based at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida, includes the participation of soldiers from the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment headquartered in Fort Campbell, Kentucky.

According to the Tribune, the training is designed to prepare military personnel for overseas deployments.

In July, we reported on an Army exercise conducted in Port Angeles, Washington, that turned the small city into a simulated war zone and terrorized residents. Frightened citizens flooded the police with phone calls complaining about low flying Chinook helicopters.

“Because of the volume of the complaints that we heard, I want to let the Army base know that if it’s necessary to fly over populated areas, we want advance notice,” Clallam County Sheriff Bill Benedict told the Peninsula Daily News on July 12.

In January, we reported on the U.S. Army along with other agencies taking over the Carnegie Vanguard High School in Houston, Texas. Alarmed residents called police and complained about gunshots and helicopters.

Earlier that month, a training exercise “designed to ensure that military personnel are able to operate in urban areas and to focus on preparations for overseas deployment” rattled residents of Miami, Florida. The exercise included simulated machine gun fire over a downtown Miami freeway.

Addendum

Earlier this month a Democrat member of the Chicago City Council called for putting troops on the streets in response to a wave of violence. “I’m calling for the National Guard to come to Chicago and ride up and down these streets,” declared Rep. Monica Davis. She demanded the Governor of Illinois, Patrick Quinn, deploy the State Police and the National Guard. In addition, Davis suggested Quinn appoint a task force to “guide the behavior of the National Guard. We don’t want them to have us fearing them also. We want them there for safety and protection,” The News Gazette reported on July 10. The move by Davis demonstrates the readiness of government bureaucrats to propose militarized solutions to social problems.

Alex Jones and others have linked increased military exercises conducted in populated urban areas to an effort by the government and the military to acclimate the citizenry to the presence of combat troops on American streets.

In addition to increased military exercises, the federal government and the United States Northern Command announced the deployment of military units for domestic homeland security missions. In September, 2008, the Army’s 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team was assigned various tasks including “civil unrest and crowd control,” a detail that was later denied by Northcom despite the concession that forces would be armed with both non-lethal and lethal weapons as well as having access to tanks, we reported on November 4, 2008.

“In the next three years the military plans to activate and train an estimated 4,700 service members for specialized domestic operations, according to Air Force Gen. Gene Renuart, commander of U.S. Northern Command, which was created in 2002 for homeland defense missions,” reported the Colorado Independent on November 2, 2008.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency added to the heightened state of domestic militarization in 2012 when it announced it had graduated its first class of FEMA Corps members under the rubric of emergency response preparedness. “While the idea of having a volunteer force of tens of thousands of volunteers scattered across the country to aid in times of natural disasters sounds great, the details and timing of this new government army is somewhat curious, if not disturbing,” Infowars.com noted on October 18, 2002.

“Over the past two years, President Obama has signed a number of Executive Orders suspending all civil and Constitutional rights and turning over management of an America under Martial Law to FEMA. Also in that time, domestic federal agencies under DHS, including FEMA, have ordered billions of rounds of ammunition as well as the corresponding firearms. Admittedly, these new weapons and ammunition aren’t to be used in some far-off war or to fight forest fires in California, but right here on the streets of America.”

Alex Jones has documented the slide into police tyranny in a number of feature length documentaries.

 

 






Attack Helicopters Let Loose with Machine Gun Fire Over Miami 

 

Kurt Nimmo
Infowars.com
January 28, 2013

 

Military “exercises” in populated urban environments are now so routine, so commonplace, they are no longer reported by the national media and are left as “human interest” stories for local news stations.

 

Posse Comitatus Act

 

 

For instance, in Miami last Thursday, units of the military industrial complex staged yet another training exercise.

“Diving Blackhawks, blank rounds of machine gun fire, strafing runs, troops rappelling from choppers, and road blockades,” writes Karen De Coster. “All over the skies of Miami at night, just a few days ago. According to this local TV clown in the video, this event was for the purposes of ‘meeting requirements,’ preparing for overseas military drills, and making sure the equipment is in check.”

In the above video, we hear the staccato of door guns pounding away as “military-style choppers” swooped a couple hundred feet above traffic on I-395 in downtown Miami.

From the local CBS disinfo ministry:

The training is designed to ensure that military personnel are able to operate in urban areas and to focus on preparations for overseas deployment. It also serves as a mandatory training certification requirement.

An “exercise” to acclimate Floridians to the presence of military troops (invariably mingled with cops also sporting combat attire and weapons) went down in April, 2011 and “frightened many residents in the area.”

And then there was this, just in case al-Qaeda gets any funny ideas about riding public transport

Marines to Invade South Carolina

Kurt Nimmo

Posse Comitatus Act

 

Marines and sailors will invade Jasper County, South Carolina, this week, The Island Packet reported on Sunday.

The 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit will train in the town of Ridgeland, the county seat, in preparation for “deployment to Mediterranean and African shores,” 2nd Lt. Gerard R. Farao told the newspaper.

The training will be coordinated with local, county and state agencies and officials, including the Ridgeland police and fire departments, a Marine Corps news release states.

Residents are warned “training could take place at any time” this week in the town and they will “likely see and hear military vehicles and possibly see aircraft” along with soldiers in uniform carrying weapons.

“Some exercises will take place at night. Residents might hear ‘popping’ sounds as Marines fire blanks. The blanks do not pose a hazard for residents, Farao said,” the Beaufort Gazette reports. “Although there is no danger, Farao said residents should stay away if they see training under way or uniformed personnel.”

Military training exercises simulating urban combat are now routine across the country. Last week we reported on exercises in Miami, Houston and Galveston, Texas. Over the past year, the Pentagon has conducted training exercises – often without warning and to the surprise and concern of civilians – in Massachusetts, Los Angeles, South Florida, South Dakota, Minneapolis, Wisconsin, and elsewhere.

The Pentagon insists these exercises are necessary for urban combat situations in Afghanistan, Iraq, and in the months ahead, Africa, where it insists al-Qaeda is active.

However, the exercises have a more immediate and important function – to acclimate civilians at home to the presence of combat soldiers working in concert with militarized police with the blessing of local officials (and often with funding provided by the federal government).

The founders understood that standing armies pose a serious threat to liberty. “A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty,” said James Madison. He also warned that no “nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.”

“A standing army is one of the greatest mischief that can possibly happen,” warned Madison’s vice president, Elbridge Gerry. He added that standing armies are “the bane of liberty.”

Thomas Jefferson lamented that a provision against standing armies was not included in the Constitution. “Nor is it conceived needful or safe that a standing army should be kept up in time of peace,” he said in 1801. “The spirit of this country is totally adverse to a large military force,” he wrote to Chandler Price.

Far too many Americans understand the great danger a standing army – and one that actively trains with local police, often at the behest of “an overgrown Executive” – is to the preservation of liberty.

Cordon and search is a military tactic to cordon off an area and search the premises for weapons or insurgents.[1][2]   It is one of the basic counter insurgency operations.[3]   Other related operations are Cordon and knock[4][5][6]   and Cordon and kick.

Cordon and knock is a relatively new technique in military operations. It has taken over the old term of a simple house search. It is part of new doctrine called Stability and Support Operations or SASO. It is a technique used where there is no hard intelligence of weapons in the house and therefore is less intense than a normal house search. It is used in urban neighborhoods. The purpose of the mission is to search a house with as little inconvenience to the resident family as possible.

“Don’t Be Alarmed”: Army Trains MPs To Drive Tanks On U.S. Streets 

Sightings of vehicles provokes fears of martial law

St Louis City residents have been warned to not be alarmed at the sight of U.S. Army tanks rolling down residential neighborhoods after sightings of the vehicles provoked fears of martial law. 

 

Army Prepares Tanks For War On America

 

 

The exercise is part of a U.S. Army program run by military police from Fort Meade, Maryland focused around training MPs from St. Louis how to drive heavily armored tanks “on highways and on city streets.”

Sightings of the tanks prompted hundreds of residents to flood news channel KSDK’s Facebook page, with some expressing fears that martial law had arrived with others promising to “stop and salute” the tanks as they rolled by.

Reporting that he was told by the Army not to disclose the location of where the exercise was operating out of for “security reasons,” KSDK reporter Casey Nolan downplayed the exercise as “not such a big deal.”

U.S. Army Sergeant Cornelius Ivory discouraged citizens from taking video and photographs of the tanks and urged them not to get too close.

“They need to know to stay away from it,” Ivory told KSDK.

The exercise will run from June 21-28 in St. Louis, with the presence of the tanks being most noticeable in the area of the sixth district.

As we have exhaustively documented, the increasing shift towards domestic militarization of law enforcement is part of the acclimation process to get Americans comfortable with the idea of troops and tanks on the streets as a routine occurrence.

Earlier today we reported on how scores of paramilitary troops and soldiers appearing to be from the National Guard were deployed onto the streets of Hartford, Connecticut to break-up a recent annual Puerto Rican-American cultural event.

This is just the latest of scores of examples of how the military and National Guard is increasingly being deployed domestically to target the American people.

National Guard and U.S. Army troops are routinely involved in ‘urban warfare training’ drills. Usually such drills take place within the confines of military bases, however, more recently heavily armed troops are increasingly seenpatrolling residential neighborhoods and even the downtown areas of major US cities.

Such “invasions” are often reported on as nothing to worry about and  even as “cool” by the mainstream media.

Back in 2008 the  Washington Post reported how 20,000 U.S. troops returning from Iraq would be stationed inside America under Northcom for purposes of “domestic security” from September 2011 onwards.

Northcom officials were forced to subsequently issue a denial after the Army Times initially reported that the troops would be used to deal “with civil unrest and crowd control.”

An article published in the May/June issue of Foreign Affairs, the mouthpiece for the influential Council on Foreign Relations, Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army, General Raymond T. Odierno, advocates the army be “transitioned” into a more “flexible force” by deploying in situations normally reserved for domestic law enforcement officials. He argues that by doing so, troops will be better equipped to deal with conflict elsewhere.

Domestic deployment of troops for purposes of law enforcement is a clear violation of section 1385 of the Posse Comitatus Act, which states, “Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.”

U.S. Army Admits Troops Conducting Law Enforcement Is Illegal 

U.S. Army admits troops conducting law enforcement is illegal yet it continues to happen across the country on a routine basis

Wednesday, June 27, 2012 

As military vehicles roll down streets and highways in St. Louis, Missouri amidst rising concerns about martial law, the U.S. Army has admitted that having troops conduct law enforcement duties is illegal in the United States.

Residents in St Louis were shocked last week to see heavily armored U.S. Army vehicles patrolling neighborhoods, part of an exercise that runs until Friday. However, the local media responded by featuring ‘vox pops’ interviews with people who supported the use of the military in order to “cut down on crime,” despite the fact that using the Army for domestic law enforcement is forbidden under the Posse Comitatus Act.

Advocating that America ape foreign countries where troops patrol the streets, one resident told Fox 2, “I think it’s the same way when you go to other countries…they don’t have police officers they have troops, and I think it kind of scares a lot of people…it might cut down on a whole lot of crime because they don’t know if they’re military or the police.”

“I think it’s fantastic because it might slow down some of the crime rate,” added another.

In a separate KSDK report, although acknowledging that some had expressed fears about martial law, the news channel emphasized how other residents had vowed to “stop and salute” the tanks as they rolled by.

However, in a KPLR St. Louis report, Capt. William Geddes of the U.S. Army Reserve is quoted as saying it’s, “Actually against federal law for them to do police patrols.”

Perhaps someone should remind Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army, General Raymond T. Odierno that it is illegal for troops to conduct law enforcement domestically.

In a recent Foreign Affairs piece, a publication of the Council on Foreign Relations, Odierno suggested that the army be “transitioned” into a more “flexible force” by deploying in situations normally reserved for domestic law enforcement officials.

Indeed, the Army and other branches of the military have already been deployed domestically for precisely that purpose on innumerable occasions.

Military Police were tasked with conducting crowd control at the 2009 Kentucky Derby. Photographs showed MPs detaining a man who had run onto the track.

In March of the same year, U.S. Army troops were dispatched to patrol the streets of Samson, Alabama, after a murder spree.

In December 2008, the  Marine Corps Air and Ground Combat Center dispatched troops to work with police on checkpoints in San Bernardino County, California.

In April 2009, we reported on the  deployment of 400 National Guard Combat Support Battalion troops to “maintain public order” at the Boston Marathon.

In the same month we highlighted how uniformed soldiers were involved in handling a car wreck in El Paso, Texas, during which a local ABC news reporter and his cameraman were arrested simply for something they routinely do every day as part of their job – filming traffic incidents.

These are just a handful of the incidents we have documented over the last few years where the military has been illegally involved in domestic law enforcement.

Back in 2008 the Washington Post reported how 20,000 U.S. troops returning from Iraq would be stationed inside America under Northcom for purposes of “domestic security” from September 2011 onwards.

Northcom officials were forced to subsequently issue a denial after the Army Times initially reported that the troops would be used to deal “with civil unrest and crowd control.”

If troops conducting law enforcement duties is completely illegal, as Capt. William Geddes confirms, they why is it happening on a routine basis across the country?

Media Dismisses Warning About Tyranny and Troops on the Street as Kooky Conspiracy Theory 

Kurt Nimmo
Infowars.com
June 15, 2012

Chad Garrison‘s critique of the news that the Army is driving military vehicles through the streets of St. Louis, Missouri, is typical of the media response to this outrageous event – a local television station’s coverage “really ignited the crazies” in the same way Orson Welles’ War of World radio broadcast did in 1938, Garrison chides.

 

Posse Comitatus Act

 

Garrison, who writes for the River Front Times, neglected to note that Welles’ drama was pure fiction, whereas the troops on the streets of St. Louis are real.

In addition to lambasting Zero Hedge and other sites covering the deployment, Garrison singled out Alex Jones who he sarcastically states produced the video below “from a basement bunker.”

Mr. Garrison’s inability to understand the significance of troops on the streets is sadly normal behavior on the part of the establishment media (and much of the alternative media, as the River Front Times is billed as a St. Louis “alternative”).

In fact, we note today, many residents in St. Louis are praising troops on the streets. According to a Fox 2 St. Louis report, “people who live and work in the area think the army training is a good idea.

Abhorrence to standing armies is spelled out in the Declaration of Independence, a document many Americans unfortunately do not know and would not understand if they bothered to read it.

“A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty,” James Madison warned during a speech delivered at the Constitutional Convention in 1878. “The means of defense against foreign danger, have been always the instruments of tyranny at home. Among the Romans it was a standing maxim to excite a war, whenever a revolt was apprehended. Throughout all Europe, the armies kept up under the pretext of defending, have enslaved the people.”

In a letter to Madison penned in 1787, Thomas Jefferson lamented the fact that the Bill of Rights does not include a restriction on standing armies. “The following [addition to the Bill of Rights] would have pleased me,” he wrote. “All troops of the United States shall stand ipso facto disbanded at the expiration of the term for which their pay and subsistence shall have been last voted by Congress.”

“The spirit of this country is totally adverse to a large military force,” he wrote to Chandler Price in 1807.

The “training” conducted in St. Louis is yet another example of the state conditioning us to the presence of a standing army in our midst. It has little to do with al-Qaeda or phantom terrorists. It is, as Madison noted, an instrument of tyranny designed to enslave the people.

For more on this, see Chuck Baldwin’s post breaking down the threat to liberty posed by standing armies.

Urban Warfare: Troops on the Streets of Hartford, Connecticut 

 

Patrick Henningsen
Infowars.com
June 22, 2012

In what appears to be another violation of the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, scores of paramilitary troops and soldiers appearing to be from the National Guard were deployed onto the streets of Hartford, Connecticut to break-up a recent annual Puerto Rican-American cultural event.

According to Infowars.com local correspondent Prince Vega, armed troops were able to lock down multiple city blocks in a matter of minutes.

“They had the biggest assault rifles i ever seen on the corner of Affleck Street (Hartford) in front of the police station. It was blocked off so no one can get through or even film it. They were jumping from all kinds of different trucks and cars on every corner where people gathered, and bullied everyone”, said Vega.

It’s still unclear exactly which branch of the military or special forces the troops were from.

Vega explained,“We didn’t notice any markings, but even friends of mine from the military said that those people aren’t regular policeman. They had armed men in uniform sitting in the back of trucks openly carrying assault rifles like they were grocery bags – it freaked everyone out”.

U.S. Army Puts Soldiers on the Street in Alabama in Response to Shootings

 

Kurt Nimmo
Infowars
March 11, 2009

The U.S. Army dispatched soldiers to patrol the streets of Samson, Alabama, a small southern town where a rampaging gunman killed 10 people on Tuesday. This obvious violation of the Posse Comitatus Act prohibiting the federal uniformed services from exercising state and local law enforcement was completely ignored by the corporate media with the exception of Reuters and the London Telegraph (see photo and video).

Posse Comitatus Act

On September 30, 2008, the Army Times reported the 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team, a component of Northern Command, would be “on-call” in response to “natural or manmade emergencies and disasters, including terrorist attacks.” The Army Times article reported the military would be used for “crowd and traffic control” and be issued “nonlethal weapons designed to subdue unruly or dangerous individuals without killing them.” According to the article, “expectations are that another, as yet unnamed, active-duty brigade will take over and that the mission will be a permanent one..” (Emphasis added.)

In early 2006, the 109th Congress passed a bill containing controversial provisions granting the president the ability to use federal troops inside the United States in emergency situations. These changes (in Section 1076) were included in the John Warner Defense Appropriation Act for Fiscal Year 2007.  

In 2008, Congress restored many of the earlier limitations on the president’s ability to deploy troops within the United States, but Bush issued a signing statement indicating he was not bound by the changes.

“The story of how Section 1076 became law vivifies how expanding government power is almost always the correct answer in Washington,” James Bovard wrote for the American Conservative on April 23, 2007. “Some people have claimed the provision was slipped into the bill in the middle of the night. In reality, the administration clearly signaled its intent and almost no one in the media or Congress tried to stop it.”

The dispatch of troops to Alabama in response to a local law enforcement situation represents a further erosion of Posse Comitatus and the continued federalization of state and local law enforcement.

A Telegraph video on the shootings in Alabama propagandizes against the right to own
firearms in the United States and the Second Amendment.

Finally, the corporate media in Britain has exploited the situation in an effort to denigrate the Second Amendment and the Bill of Rights. In a transparent propaganda piece (see video above), the Telegraph states that “mass shootings have become a feature of life in the U.S. in recent years. Guns are widely available for purchase in a country that prides itself on the right to own weapons for self defense and hunting.” Britain has some of the most restrictive gun legislation in the world.

After Britain’s government banned guns in 1997, the rate of violent crime more than doubled. “A recent study of all the countries of western Europe has found that in 2001 Britain had the worst record for killings, violence and burglary, and its citizens had one of the highest risks in the industrialized world of becoming victims of crime,” historian Joyce Lee Malcolm wrote for the fall 2004 issue of Journal on Firearms & Public Policy.

Domestic Deployment: U.S. Army Chief Says Military Will Be Used To Provide “Rapid Response Options”


Mac Slavo
SHTFplan.com
June 15th, 2012

 

As the Department of Homeland Security and local law enforcement fuse into a single militarized policing apparatus for the whole of America through the use of massive surveillance warehouses, eye-in-the-sky drones and hybrid task forces, the U.S. military will continue to expand it’s role in domestic affairs, including in the event of natural disasters and terror related crises. So says Army Chief of Staff Raymond Odierno, who recently penned an article in Foreign Affairs, a propaganda mouthpiece published by the Council of Foreign Relations, an organization well known for having its hand in the economic, financial, social, military and political policies of every developed nation on Earth.

The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) proposes that the U.S. Army be used to plan, command, and carry out (with the help of civilian law enforcement) domestic police missions…

…the CFR would see the Army used to address “challenges in the United States itself” in order to keep the homeland safe from domestic disasters, including terrorist attacks.

Odierno writes:

Where appropriate we will also dedicate active-duty forces, especially those with niche skills and equipment, to provide civilian officials with a robust set of reliable and rapid response options.

That’s right. Should the sheriff suspect that a particular citizen in his county poses a threat to security and feels he doesn’t have the proper “skills and equipment” to deal with the situation, he can just call out the U.S. Army and bring a “rapid response” force that is robust enough to eliminate the problem.

These are not the musings of an unknown academic written in an obscure journal of little importance. These are the black-and-white plans for “building a flexible force” as laid out by the man in charge and published for all the world to read by the people who may have put him there.

In order to justify this new (and illegal) mission for the Army, General Odierno points to three “major changes” that have precipitated the re-tasking of the troops: First, “declining budgets due to the country’s worsened fiscal situation; second, “a shift in emphasis to the Asia-Pacific region; and third, a “broadening of focus from counterinsurgency, counter-terrorism, and training of partners to shaping the strategic environment, preventing the outbreak of dangerous regional conflicts, and improving the army’s readiness to respond in force to a range of complex contingencies worldwide.”

Source: New American via Federal Jack

The head of the U.S. military, in a publication for an organization that is hell bent on centralizing the activities of sovereign nations into a single global entity, has outlined the intentions of our government, military, and international community for future deployment in what’s shaping up to be America’s next theater of operations – the domestic front.

With the passage of recent legislation that allows for the detention of American citizens without charge or trial, a stifling of freedom to protest at events of “national significance”, the expansion of terror definitions, and a new executive order that authorizes martial law and military deployment at any time the President deems necessary, it should be obvious that it is only a matter of time before tanks and soldiers are deployed on the streets of America.

 

 

 

 

Tampa Police Roll Out A TANK To Deal With A Few Dozen Protesters

Business Insider
November 20, 2011

According to The Daily, the Tampa police produced this vehicle to deal with some protesters.

Overkill, much?

(As many folks have observed on Twitter, these sorts of responses are playing right into the protesters’ hands.)

UPDATE: It’s not actually a “tank,” of course, though it certainly looks like one. It’s a “12-ton armored personnel carrier.” It is supposedly for “rescue” operations, though why it needs to be armored to do that is not clear.

TSA to Purchase 3.5 Million Rounds of Ammunition

Enough for its agents to fire 9,400 bullets a day, every day of the year

 

Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
August 19, 2013

The Transportation Security Administration is set to purchase 3.5 million .357 SIG caliber bullets, enough for its agents to fire 9,400 rounds a day, every day of the year.

Image: YouTube

According to a solicitation issued by the agency on August 16, the TSA is looking to buy “3,454,000 rounds of .347 SIG Caliber Training Ammunition”.

Although TSA agents in airports are currently unarmed, last month the TSA announced its plan to hire the use of a firing range within a 20 mile radius of LaGuardia Airport in order to train TSA workers.

The federal agency’s huge bullet buy could signal an expansion of its controversial Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR) program, where teams of armed TSA officers patrol railroad stations, bus stations, ferries, car tunnels, ports, subways, truck weigh stations, rest areas, and special events.

VIPR teams currently conduct around 8,000 operations a year. As well as providing security at transport hubs, VIPR teams are now being used to keep tabs on fans at sporting events.

Earlier this month it was announced that VIPR agents would now be patting down Americans “outside the airport” by conducting stop and search shake downs at transport hubs and public events.

As Government Security News notes, the amount of ammunition being purchased, “means the TSA could fire off more than 9,400 rounds per day, every day of the year, to consume that entire quantity annually.”

Significant bullet purchases by the TSA are likely to fuel concerns that the federal government is arming itself to the teeth in preparation for some form of domestic unrest or other catastrophe, following the Department of Homeland Security’s commitment to purchase more than 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition over the course of the last 18 months.

As we reported last week, Congressman Jeff Duncan’s attempt to get answers on why the IRS is also training its agents with semi-automatic AR-15′s designed for “standoff capability” has been ignored by the federal agency.

Ft. Hood Gears Up For Financial Collapse

Soldiers receive “riot control” training

 

Julie Wilson
Infowars.com
Oct. 16, 2013

Soldiers at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas received training last week on how to “manage themselves in peaceful situations involving civilians,” reports KDH News.

The timing of the training is interesting when analyzing America’s current economic state, which is bordering on collapse. American investment broker, businessman, author and financial commentator Peter Schiff warns us that we are in worse shape now economically than we were just before the 2008 financial crisis, which we still have yet to recover from.

Posse Comitatus ActSoldiers whose training has always revolved around enemies in foreign combat zones, is now focused on American civilians. Troops underwent “crowd and riot control” training at Fort Hood’s Elijah urban training site last week.

The exercises, which were originally reported by Killeen’s local news and painted in a very positive light, also involved the use of “role players.” The report states the potential uses for the crowd control training ranges from “peaceful protestors to full on riots,” and also includes how to deal with natural disasters, such as Hurricane Katrina.

In an obvious attempt to normalize the training, and prevent the public from panicking, the paper’s report quoted military personnel as basically loving the new exercises.

“I always like trying new things,” said team leader Sgt. Tyler Holt. “All the guys seem to enjoy the fun training. It’s also team-building.”

Soldiers reportedly learned unifying formations, verbal and hand signals, and chants including “Get Back”– which is meant to be spoken while soldiers step their feet towards the crowd in an intimidating fashion.

Sgt. 1st Class Nicholas Ford, a platoon sergeant says the learned actions send a “clear, concise message that’s not demeaning or harmful to the crowd.”

His statement to the paper defending the training is to be expected, however, we know that the training is not meant to help soldiers deal with civil unrest peacefully, but in a police state-like manner meant to suppress, injure, arrest and potentially kill peaceful protestors.

Inside military sources have repeatedly confirmed the military is planning and training for civil unrest. The federalization of the police force is one of the best indicators of this.

Police departments all over the nation, even tiny rural communities, are receiving robust, intimidating military equipment designed to be used against civilians for next to nothing in costs.

The Ala. Cullman Police Department recently received a $400,000 armored MRAP (Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected) surplus military vehicle for free, meant for use by the tactic unit.

“The department applied for the military surplus vehicle, much like other police departments are receiving military vehicles to be used for tactical purposes,” said the police chief.

They argue it will be used to respond to active shooter scenarios and “certain situations” that may occur in the community.

In February Infowars broke the story exposing a DHS supplier that was providing the government agency with shooting targets featuring pregnant women, mothers in playgrounds and elderly American gun owners.

Also, the DHS has been arming themselves to the teeth with over 2 billion rounds of ammunition throughout last year, which is enough to wage a 30-year war.

Last March Infowars writer Adan Salazar broke some disturbing news when he came across a Department of Defense training manual obtained by a conservative watchdog group that labeled people who embrace “individual liberties” and honor “states’ rights,” as potential “extremists.”

Posse Comitatus Act 

Will Americans Put Up with Americans Being Trained to Attack Them?

The answer may unfortunately be a resounding “Yes”

 

Adan Salazar
Infowars.com
November 7, 2013

As evidence mounts that the U.S. military is being trained to engage citizens domestically, the lack of outcry from the American people has been astounding.

Posse Comitatus ActExactly why the military is undergoing training in this regard is still unclear.

It could be related to a potential welfare state collapse, which could be triggered by cuts to food stamps or social security benefits. According to the Social Security Administration, “9 out of 10 individuals age 65 and older receive Social Security benefits.”

The arms buildup could also be in response to the slow motion financial collapse, which can only be accelerated through the implementation of Obamacare and which banks have already been warned to prepare for.

Another possibility is that the military is gearing up for another type of staged false flag event, which is desperately needed to relieve Obama’s flagging approval rating, and which will in turn help further instill fear in Americans and keep them looking to government for solutions.

A gun confiscation offensive targeting “bitter clingers,” tea party conservatives, or “conspiracy theorists” who support the Second Amendment is also not completely out of the picture, as one MP in Arizona recently confirmed to Infowars.

No matter the explanation, a few things are clear. Ammunition, lethal and nonlethal firearms, and riot gear is being stockpiled at an alarming rate, along with checkpoints, military vehicles and armed personnel for federal buildings.

Confirmed rumors that the military is weeding out of several generals and enlistees using a “litmus test” to gauge whether or not they will fire upon American citizens, in addition to shooting range targets depicting armed pregnant women, children and elderly citizens in residential settings, and domestic training exercises and army manuals, only exacerbate worries that the government is preparing for imminent civil unrest.

While Infowars and others have diligently documented these unprecedented developments, the sleeping giant that is the American people has thus far failed to offer a reciprocal response through protest, activism or other means.

The question must be asked: Will Americans put up with their own countrymen attacking them? All signs unfortunately point to a resounding “Yes.”

Americans already have complete apathy towards eugenicist practices carried out by the likes of Planned Parenthood in the form of abortion, sterilization and other artificially induced procedures.

Americans are already putting up with cops that conduct proctology exams on the side of the road and forced colonoscopies inside hospitals.

Americans already put up with bureaucrats repeatedly and unapologetically lying to them on a near daily basis.

Americans already put up with a government that ships arms and funds to foreign mercenaries, such as the Al Qaeda offshoot Jabhat Al Nusra in Syria and other parts of the world, while they simultaneously promote gun control within their own borders.

Americans already put up with having a federally funded domestic spy network and tech software which ubiquitously monitors and logs conversations, phone calls, texts, web pages visited and emails.

Americans already put up with degrading so-called security procedures, like the TSA sticking their hands down their pants, snapping x-ray photos of them naked and grabbing their genitals, all while gradually moving outside the scope of airports.

Americans already put up with massive wealth redistribution schemes, like Obamacare which, under the guise of wanting to keep everyone healthy, is actually set up to annihilate the middle class through increased taxation.

Indeed, it seems Americans know no limit when it comes to allowing the federal government to further erase liberties in the name of safety, activities which far exceed what America’s forebearers initiated a revolt over.

Something I missed? The conversation continues on Twitter with the hashtag: #Americansalreadyputupwith, where everyone is urged to describe other ways in which the American people have stood down while their rights and liberties were slowly stripped away.

Posse Comitatus Act 

Phoenix Residents Freak Out Over DoD Military Exercises

Nothing to see here… DoD training for “urban operations”

 

Infowars.com
November 20, 2013

The Department of Defense has been conducting training exercises in several cities in Arizona in preparation for “urban operations,” unbeknownst to its citizens.

 

 

“Right now the military is in the middle of a big training exercise over Phoenix for the second night in a row. People are calling the 3TV News room wondering what’s happening,” claimed the 3TV news anchor.

Phoenix residents were so alarmed to hear swarms of military helicopters flying overhead that they phoned their local news outlet to ask if they had somehow crossed over into a warzone.

“They were very close to the buildings,” one witness told 3TV News. “…they would go back up and they would take off and just fly and then they would stop and then go again.” The interviewee was unable to tell what type of helicopters were used as the exercises were conducted under cover of night.

Phoenix PD confirmed to 3TV News that the DoD was indeed conducting training exercises “trying to get military personnel certified in urban operations so that when they go overseas they are prepared.”

That the military owns plenty of abandoned buildings and mock towns for training purposes was not questioned by local news.

As Infowars has exhaustively documented, military exercises are routinely conducted in residential and urban areas as a way to acclimate citizens into accepting a constant military presence in lieu of local law enforcement, and in order to soften the gradual dissolving of posse comitatus, the law that supposedly bars federal military personnel from enforcing state laws.

In Alex Jones’ film Police State 2000, Alex exposed several federal drills that took place in Texas in total disregard of public safety and without express permission from local law enforcement. Alex also details how Russian troops were allowed to join in on terrorizing the public.

KTVK says other Arizona cities should expect military helicopters in the near future, as locations in Glendale, Scottsdale, Mesa, and Tempe have also been chosen as training grounds.

Attack Chopper Joins Snipers & Checkpoints at Super Bowl

Pentagon budget cuts will not stop PR opportunity

The Super Bowl will provide a venue to acclimate the American people to the presence of the military. The Defense Department said on Friday it will play a major role – with air defense, ground troops, a flyover and other contributions – at the high profile event.

 

 

Despite a flight restriction zone imposed over New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, F-16 fighters will patrol the skies.

National Guardsmen will attend the event for security and “community relations.”

There will be a 32-member armed forces chorus that will contribute to the national anthem.

Black Hawk attack helicopters and Chinook transports from the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) will do a flyover. It was requested by the NFL, Col. Steve Warren told Politico.

The flyover will cost around $100,000. There was no estimate provided on how much it will cost taxpayers for the remainder of the Pentagon’s public relations stunt. “This is the type of audience we want to connect with,” Col. Warren explained.

In addition to in-your-face military displays, football fans will be subjected to unprecedented security at the event: 700 troopers, 3,000 security guards, and state, local, county and federal “assets,” according to Fox News.

The Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, the TSA and other federal agencies will be involved, which is to say the American people will be obliged to pay millions for over-the-top security while the Seahawks and the Broncos throw around a pigskin ball.

As usual, there is no specific terror threat.

“Of particular concern to us is what was going on overseas in Volgograd in regard to the Sochi Olympics. As you know both of those bombings were targeting mass transit,” said Col. Rick Fuentes, head of the New Jersey State Police.

U.S. Army Builds ‘Fake City’ in Virginia to Practice Military Occupation

Martial law training? 300 acre town includes sports stadium, school, underground subway

Infowars.com
February 14, 2014

The U.S. Army has built a 300 acre ‘fake city’ complete with a sports stadium, bank, school, and an underground subway in order to train for unspecified future combat scenarios.

 

 

 

The recently opened site is located in Virginia and was built at a cost of $96 million dollars, taking just two years to complete.

While the city was ostensibly built to prepare U.S. troops for the occupation of cities abroad, some will undoubtedly fear that the real intention could be closer to home. Although the site includes a mosque, the town looks American in every other way, with signs in English.

The fact that, as the Telegraph reports, “The subway carriages even carry the same logo as the carriages in Washington DC,” could suggest that the site was built to double both as a foreign city and a mock domestic town.

According to Colonel John P. Petkosek, “This is the place where we can be creative, where we can come up with solutions for problems that we don’t even know we have yet….This is where we’ll look at solutions for the future–material solutions and non-material solutions…anything from how you’re going to operate in a subterranean environment to how you dismount a Humvee to avoid an IED strike.”

The increasing demonization of domestic political groups as extremists has prompted numerous scenarios where commentators have suggested that U.S. Army and National Guard personnel could be needed to quell civil unrest.

In 2012, an academic study about the future use of the military as a peacekeeping force within the United States written by a retired Army Colonel depicted a shocking scenario in which the U.S. Army is used to restore order to a town that has been seized by Tea Party “insurrectionists”.

The study dovetailed with a leaked U.S. Army manual which revealed plans for the military to carry out “Civil Disturbance Operations” during which troops would be used domestically to quell riots, confiscate firearms and even kill Americans on U.S. soil during mass civil unrest.

The manual also describes how prisoners will be processed through temporary internment camps under the guidance of U.S. Army FM 3-19.40 Internment/Resettlement Operations, which outlines how internees would be “re-educated” into developing an “appreciation of U.S. policies” while detained in prison camps inside the United States.

Fort Hood soldiers are also being taught by their superiors that Christians, Tea Party supporters and anti-abortion activists represent a radical terror threat, mirroring rhetoric backed by the Department of Homeland Security which frames “liberty lovers” as domestic extremists.

Last year, former Navy SEAL Ben Smith warned that the Obama administration is asking top brass in the military if they would be comfortable with disarming U.S. citizens, a litmus test that includes gauging whether they would be prepared to order NCOs to fire on Americans.

During a recent Ohio National Guard exercise, second amendment proponents were portrayed as domestic terrorists as part of a mock disaster drill.

Troops Practice Storming University Building in Fort Lauderdale

Fallujah comes to Florida as low-flying Black Hawks used in drills

Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
March 26, 2014

Fallujah came to Florida this week as residents in Fort Lauderdale were shocked to see Navy SEALS practicing storming a university building from a Black Hawk chopper as part of military drills taking place this week in Broward County.

 

 

As we reported yesterday, the media only announced that a Department of Defense exercise was taking place across the county after panicked residents reported low flying military helicopters on Monday evening.

The clip above shows a Black Hawk helicopter hovering low over the Florida Atlantic University building in in downtown Fort Lauderdale.

“They’re going to the top of FAU,” remarks the cameraman, adding, “That’s the big boy, look how big that one is man,” as the chopper hovers over the building. “Look at all the guys that are hanging on the side, practicing,” he adds.

In another clip from a different area of Fort Lauderdale, a man exclaims, “There are frigging Black Hawks flying around my condo.”

While the DoD says the exercises are designed to train U.S. troops in urban warfare techniques for use overseas, local reporter Chris Joseph said the drills served the dual purpose of “scaring the crap out of people,” just as similar drills in Miami in 2012 terrorized residents. Such drills habitually stoke concerns that authorities are acclimating Americans to accept a state of martial law.

News of the planned exercises first broke last month, but the city refused to release details due to “national security concerns”. According to the Sun-Sentinel, the drills, which run until tomorrow, will also involve “flash-bang devices and the sounds of gunfire”.

The exercises, which involve the Naval Special Warfare Development Group, will also be centered around using, “low-flying helicopters and simulated ammunition to train personnel on a “rooftop fast-rope insertion” into a building,” according to the report.

The drills will also involve the military conducting airborne surveillance of the city, although the U.S. Special Operations Command’s public affairs officer Ken McGraw said, “This collection will not be used to support local, state or federal law enforcement investigations.”

In another clip, a resident remarks, “Oh boy, here they come, this is like awesome,” as Black Hawk helicopters fly overhead.

Police Recruitment Video Shows Cops in Military-Style Ghillie Suits

A recruitment video for the Springdale Police Department in Arkansas shows cops dressed in military-style ghillie suits armed with sniper rifles emerging out of the ground.

This suit is only usually worn by hunters and soldiers in order to evade detection when targeting prey or a dangerous enemy.

Just who is the Springdale Police Department planning on hunting? This is yet another disturbing sign of the increasing militarization of domestic law enforcement.

“Black-Ops” Helicopters Buzz Kentucky Residents

Military choppers conducted maneuvers with no lights

 

Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
May 2, 2014

Black-ops” helicopters with their lights turned off buzzed Kentucky and Cincinnati residents last night as part of an unannounced military drill, with one eyewitness telling Infowars the maneuvers resembled something out of a “war zone”.

Under the headline, Yes, Those were ‘Black Ops’ helicopters over Florence, 700WLW News reports, “Several callers to the 700 WLW news room overnight said that there were “black ops” helicopters flying over the Florence area. Our news partners at Fox 19 said they received calls as well. Callers said that they spotted at least two choppers, and they were running without lights.”

The news station confirmed with Boone County dispatch center there were indeed “black ops” helicopters flying over northern Kentucky and the Greater Cincinnati area and that they were part of an exercise out of Fort Campbell which was using Lunken Airport as a base.

“The Army said it had coordinated the exercise with appropriate leaders,” states the report, although there was no indication that citizens were told in advance of the drill. The purpose of the exercises was also withheld. The Army also claimed that, “the safety of the personnel and the public was maintained,” despite the fact that the choppers’ lights were turned off.

An Infowars reader and a Florence resident emailed to inform us that he was suddenly awoken at midnight by the exercises.

“I woke and looked but could not see a thing. I knew the sound because of the deep whip and vibration. No lights or indicators were on to view the presence. Two pass overs and maneuvering you would expect in a war zone,” he stated, adding, “What is this government thinking?”

Although the term “black helicopters” is used as a pejorative slur by the mainstream media, such aircraft are often a part of unannounced military drills over metropolitan areas which have stoked concerns that Americans are being pacified into accepting martial law-style activities as routine.

In 2012, Miami residents were shocked to be awoken by a military exercise in the middle of the night which involved helicopters, fighter jets, along with simulated gunfire and grenades. Black Hawk helicopters also flew low over Los Angeles during a military drill the same year.

Back in March, we reported on Department of Defense exercises in Broward County during which low flying military helicopters landed on city buildings in Fort Lauderdale. According to a local reporter, the drills were centered around, “scaring the crap out of people”.

Posse Comitatus Act

Breaking: US Army Trains for Martial Law In US

Shock investigation: Pentagon accelerates plan to confiscate guns, prosecute US conservatives.

 

Infowars.com
February 15, 2014

The federal government has been in a big hurry to build a 300 acre city in just 2 years at an expense of $96 million in taxpayer funds in order to train the military “for problems we don’t even know we have yet.” If you’ve been following Infowars, you’ve seen us document over and over again what they’re training for with a detailed American city like this: martial law within this nation.

Posse Comitatus ActAnd now, The Telegraph is confirming the construction of this small town military simulation that will be used to train troops for combat against the American people.

Unlike the urban training centers we’ve seen before where the buildings are just empty concrete block structures or even plywood facades, this town is very detailed with glass windows, handicap parking signs, speed limit signs, logos on the subway that match the DC metro, and even a small town steeple (that was originally claimed to be a mosque). They’ve made it clear in manual after manual, scenario after scenario that they perceive the enemy as gun owners, limited government conservatives, libertarians and Christians.

Former Obama Press Secretary Was Ordered To Act As If Drone Program Did Not Exist

The first rule of the drone program is that you do not talk about the drone program

Steve Watson
Infowars.com
Feb 25, 2013

In a rare admission, Robert Gibbs, the former White House Press Secretary under Obama, told reporters Sunday that he was ordered to act as if there was no such thing as an active US drone program.

“When I went through the process of becoming press secretary, one of the first things they told me was, you’re not even to acknowledge the drone program,” Gibbs said on MSNBC’s “Up With Chris Hayes” this past weekend.

Gibbs said that he was told “You’re not even to discuss that it exists.”

Noting that the notion was “inherently crazy”, Gibbs said “You’re being asked a question based on reporting of a program that exists.”

“So you’re the official government spokesperson acting as if the entire program—pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.” Gibbs, who was Press Secretary between 2009 and 2011, said.

 

 

As we have tirelessly noted, the Obama administration has been heavily criticized for blocking the release of information relating to its overseas drone assassination programme, and will not even officially acknowledge that it exists, despite countless public references to the programme and the proven existence of an official “kill list”.

Gibbs stated that he expects the drone program to remain secret for the most part, despite moves in Congress to force more transparency.

“I have not talked to him about this, so I want to be careful,” Gibbs said, “but I think what the president has seen is, our denial of the existence of the program when it’s obviously happening undermines people’s confidence overall in the decisions that their government makes.”

While the program itself remains classified, it is no secret that Obama has vastly expanded the US drone war since entering office in 2009. Daily drone strikes are raining down on Yemen, Pakistan and Afghanistan, as well as Somalia.

A recent report released by Washington based think tank, The New America Foundation revealed that the number of secret US drone strikes in Yemen almost tripled in 2012, compared to 2011.

The Bureau of Investigative Journalism, has found that at least 171 civilians, including 35 children, have been slaughtered in Yemen by secret US drone strikes over the past ten years.

Communications released by WikiLeaks in 2010 revealed that the US and Yemen have repeatedly attempted to cover up the use of US warplanes to bombard Yemen.

Last week it was announced that despite the fact that drone strikes have killed thousands of innocent civilians in Yemen and Pakistan, the Pentagon is to reward drone operators with medals.

The DoD is creating a new ribbon, called the Distinguished Warfare Medal that will be awarded for “extra achievement” related to a military operation. This will encompass sitting at a computer console and pressing a button to release Hellfire missiles from Predator drones hundreds and thousands of miles away.

The medal will become the fourth-highest ranking combat decoration, placing above the Bronze Star.

Despite the official secrecy, the president has referred to the drone program several times in public, as have officials such as counter-terrorism adviser John Brennan.

Last year, the New York Times ran a major piece on the program revealing that the White House has asserted the right to carry out state-sponsored assassination anywhere in the world without having to provide any evidence or go through any legal process.

 

 

The administration merely has to state that the target is a terrorist and it doesn’t matter whether they are an American citizen or not, as we saw in the case of American-born Anwar al-Awlaki and his son, who were both killed last year.

In December of last year, Obama administration lawyers reaffirmed their backing for state sponsored assassination, claiming that “U.S. citizens are legitimate military targets” and do not have the right to any legal protection against being marked for summary execution.

During a CBS 60 Minutes interview in January, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta revealed that Obama himself personally approves the policy to kill American citizens suspected of terrorism without trial on a case by case basis.

Perhaps the real reason that the administration wants the details of the programme kept under wraps is that, as reported by Propublica recently, the programme is potentially much bigger in scope than anyone had previously thought.

The administration’s figures do not add up, they are chock full of contradictions and discrepancies, and there can be little doubt that there have been many many more civilian deaths as a result of drone attacks than have been publicly acknowledged.

Experts, including UN special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions Christof Heyns, as well as Pakistan’s UN ambassador in Geneva, Zamir Akram, have described the drone assassination programme as a violation of the international legal system, saying that some attacks may constitute war crimes.

Akram, who noted that US drone strikes had killed more than 1,000 civilians in Pakistan, also said “We find the use of drones to be totally counterproductive in terms of succeeding in the ‘war against terror’. It leads to greater levels of terror rather than reducing them.

Many also contend that the attacks infringe the national sovereignty of Pakistan and constitute an act of war.

In 2010, a report by Washington think tank The New America Foundation found that 32% of the more than 1,200 people killed since 2004 in Pakistan, or around 1 in 3, were innocent bystanders rather than dangerous terrorists.

THE CIA

An independent agency of the United States government responsible for collecting and coordinating intelligence and counterintelligence activities abroad in the national interest; headed by the Director of Central Intelligence under the supervision of the President and National Security Council...There has been considerable criticism of the CIA relating to security and counterintelligence failures, failures in intelligence analysis, human rights concerns, external investigations and document releases, influencing public opinion and law enforcement, drug trafficking, and lying to Congress. In 1987, the former CIA Station Chief in Angola in 1976, John Stockwell, said the CIA is responsible for tens of thousands of covert actions and destablization programs since it was created by Congress with the passage of the National Security Act of 1947. At the time, Stockwell estimated that over 6 million people had died in CIA covert actions.

THE FBI

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is a governmental agency belonging to the United StatesDepartment of Justice that serves as both a federal criminal investigative body and an internal intelligence agency (counterintelligence). Also, it is the government agency responsible for investigating crimes on Indian reservations in the United States under the Major Crimes Act. The branch has investigative jurisdiction over violations of more than 200 categories of federal crime. The agency was established in 1908 as the Bureau of Investigation (BOI). Its name was changed to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in 1935. The agency headquarters is the J. Edgar Hoover Building, located in Washington, D.C. The agency has fifty-six field offices located in major cities throughout the United States, and more than 400 resident agencies in lesser cities and areas across the nation. More than 50 international offices called "legal attachés" exist in U.S. embassies and consulates general worldwide. 

'Federal Bureau of Investigation organizes almost all terror plots in the US' ...The report reveals that the FBI regularly infiltrates communities where they suspect terrorist-minded individuals to be engaging with others. Regardless of their intentions, agents are sent in to converse within the community, find suspects that could potentially carry out “lone wolf” attacks and then, more or less, encourage them to do so. By providing weaponry, funds and a plan, FBI-directed agents will encourage otherwise-unwilling participants to plot out terrorist attacks, only to bust them before any events fully materialize.

The Fake War On Terror

 

In 1991, the Club published The First Global Revolution. It analyses the problems of humanity, calling these collectively or in essence the 'problematique'. It notes (laments) that, historically, social or political unity has commonly been motivated by enemies in common: "The need for enemies seems to be a common historical factor. Some states have striven to overcome domestic failure and internal contradictions by blaming external enemies. The ploy of finding a scapegoat is as old as mankind itself - when things become too difficult at home, divert attention to adventure abroad. Bring the divided nation together to face an outside enemy, either a real one, or else one invented for the purpose. With the disappearance of the traditional enemy, the temptation is to use religious or ethnic minorities as scapegoats, especially those whose differences from the majority are disturbing." "Every state has been so used to classifying its neighbours as friend or foe, that the sudden absence of traditional adversaries has left governments and public opinion with a great void to fill. New enemies have to be identified, new strategies imagined, and new weapons devised."
